Prior to Initial Start–Up
1
Before connecting the appliance to the mains and putting it into
operation for the first time, leave the appliance to stand for 30 minutes
if was transported upright. After transport on its side, the appliance
must be left to stand for 2 hours before putting it into operation. This is
necessary to allow the refrigerant to flow back into the compressor.
Otherwise the compressor may be damaged.
0 1. Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial
start-up (see section: “Maintenance and Cleaning”).
2. The appliance must be correctly installed in accordance with the chapter "Installation" before it is put into operation for the first time. Care
should be especially taken that the mains voltage and frequency available correspond with the appliance’s rating plate.
Initial Start-Up
0 1. Insert plug into mains socket.
2. Press ON/OFF button.
The compressor starts and then runs automatically.
3. Set temperature to +5 °C or colder (see section: "Temperature Adjustment").
3
Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on,
because the storage temperature in the refrigerator is quickly reached.
Temperature Adjustment
With the buttons for temperature adjustment the desired temperatures
in the refrigerator can be adjusted.
0 1. Press either the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button.
The temperature display switches over and the DESIRED temperature
currently set flashes on the temperature display.
2. To adjust to a warmer temperature, press the „+“ (WARMER) button. To
adjust to a colder temperature, press the „-“ (COLDER) button. The
changed setting is immediately displayed on the temperature display.
Each time the button is pressed the temperature is adjusted by 1 °C.
Adjustable temperature range: +2 °C to +8 °C, +15 °C (Holiday mode)
16
818 35 69-02/2
Note: From a food safety point of view, +5 °C for the refrigerator
compartment should be considered cold enough as a storage
temperature.
3
When the buttons are not further pressed after an adjustment has been
made, after a short period (approx. 5 sec.) the temperature display switches over and again displays the ACTUAL temperature in the refrigerator. The display changes from flashing to illuminated numbers.
Information! When the setting is changed, the compressor does not
start immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place.
Switching the Appliance off
0 1. To switch off, push and hold the ON/OFF button for approx. 5 seconds.
This will result in a countdown from "3" to "1" taking place in the temperature display. On reaching "1" the fridge will switch off. The temperature display will go off.
3
The appliance is only completely disconnected from the electricity
supply when the power plug has been removed from the power outlet.
Note:
The appliance cannot be switched on or off if unplugged, or if there is
no power being supplied to it.
Following connection to the mains power supply, the appliance returns
to the same operating state as before the interruption of main power.
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
0 1. Switch off the appliance, to do this press the ON/OFF button (see
above).
2. Remove the mains plug.
3. Clean the appliance thoroughly (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
4. Leave door open to avoid accumulation of odours.
818 35 69-02/2
17
Holiday Mode
In the holiday mode the temperature for the refrigerator is approximately +15 °C. In the holiday mode it is therefore possible to leave the
door of the empty refrigerator closed during periods of extended
absence. Advantage: Unintentional closing of the door, or accidental
closing of the door by persons who have access to your home during
your absence, is no longer possible. Without the holiday mode leaving
the door closed would lead to the accumulation of odours and mould.
After emptying and cleaning the appliance, proceed as follows:
0 1. To set the holiday mode, press the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button.
The temperature display will change and indicate in flashing numbers
the DESIRED temperature that is currently set.
2. Hold down the „+“ (WARMER) button until the temperature display
indicates H (for holiday). The temperature shown in the temperature
display will change in steps of 1 °C until it reaches +8 °C. After +8 °C
the value +15 °C will appear in the display with the letter H. The fridge
is now operating in energy-saving holiday mode.
3
To switch the fridge back to normal operation, press the „-“ (COLDER)
button.
Important! Do not store any goods in the refrigerator when the holiday
mode is in operation. The temperature is regulated at about +15 °C
when the holiday mode is in operation. This is too warm for food products.
Opening the Door
If the door is closed when the appliance is in operation, it cannot be
immediately opened again, because a vacuum occurs which holds the
door closed until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened
again after several minutes.

Control and Information Systems
The control and information systems consist of the temperature display,
an optical warning display and an acoustic warning.
The system warns if:
– if the appliance door remains open for longer than 5 minutes;
– if the temperature in the fridge compartment is too warm;
– functional errors at the appliance.
"Open Door" Warning
If the fridge door is left open for longer than 5 minutes the red warning display will flash and an acoustic warning tone will sound.
If you need more time to load or rearrange refrigerated foods, you can
switch off the warning tone by pressing the ALARM OFF button.
The red warning display will go off when the door is closed.
Temperature warning
The red warning light flashes and a warning tone sounds, as soon as the
temperature in the refrigerator is warmer than 12 °C. Such a rise in
temperature can possibly be put down to:
– opening the door a lot or leaving it open for a long time;
– storing larger quantities of warm food;
– a fault with the appliance.
You can turn off the warning tone using the ALARM OFF button.
The warning light and the warning tone switch off automatically,
when the ACTUAL temperature existing in the refrigerator drops below
12 °C again.
Function Errors
If the appliance electronics detects a technical fault that needs to be
rectified by customer service, the temperature display shows a square in
the upper part of the temperature display. The red warning indicator
flashes. The appliance will continue to operate in emergency mode.

The shelf in the lowest runners over the fruit and vegetable drawer
must always remain in this position, so that fruit and vegetables stay
fresher for longer.
The remaining storage shelves can
be adjusted to various heights:
0 1. Pull the storage shelf forward until
it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
2. To insert at a different height use
the same procedure in reverse.
Adjustment for tall items:
0 1. Remove the front half of the twopart vario glass storage shelf and
insert it at a different level. Space is
then gained for storage of tall items
on the storage shelf below.

Proper Storage
The cooling fan ensures an even temperature distribution in the fridge.
There is a max. temperature difference of 1 °C. Foods with different
lengths of storage time can therefore
be arranged on the shelves as you
like, without having to take into
account the different temperature
zones which usually occur. The temperature in the fruit and vegetable
drawer is around 3 - 4 °C higher than
the fridge temperature set. The
example arrangement opposite
shows possible ways of storing food.
The shelf immediately above the fruit
and vegetable tray should be 5 °C for
safe storage of meat and fish
products. In order to check that the
appliance is at 5 °C on the lowest
shelf you can carry out the following
test yourself:
0 1. Place a cup of water in the centre of the said shelf with a thermometer
inside.
2. Leave the fridge door closed overnight and check the temperature first
thing in the morning.
3. At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does,
you need to adjust the temperature to a colder setting.
For further information on keeping food cool and safe a guide
published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is available
and can be obtained free of charge by contacting:
Foodsense, London SE99 7TT. Tel: 0645 556000
Tip: Food stored in the refrigerator compartment should always be
covered or packed so that they do not dry out, lose their flavour, or
transfer their flavour to any other refrigerated food. The following are
suitable for packing:
– polyethylene bags;
– plastic containers with lids;
– special plastic covers with rubber retainers;
– aluminium foil.

Hints and Tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant
is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round
and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the
compressor.
• A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint click
when the thermostat cuts in and out.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator:
• Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your
refrigerator as short as possible.
• Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate
around each item.
2 Energy Saving Advice
• Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker,
dishwasher or radiator.
• Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure
that the air openings of the appliance are not obstructed.
• Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before
placing in the fridge.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the
door too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
• Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing
properly.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT
the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply.
Internal Cleaning
0 1. Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly.
1
Warning!
• Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning
products, wax polishes or cleaning products containing bleach or
alcohol.
2. Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
External Cleaning
1
Warning!
• Do not use abrasive products
• There are sharp edges on the underside of the product so care should
be taken when cleaning.
1 Important: Do not use cleaning agents for stainless steel or other
aggressive or abrasive cleaning agents. The protective coat of lacquer
on the stainless steel surface can be damaged by these.
The coat of lacquer protects against finger prints and therefore
additional cleaning agents and maintenance products are no longer
required.
0 1. Clean the appliance with a cloth and lukewarm water. Commercially
available dish washing detergents may also be used. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
2
Accumulation of dust at the condenser reduces cooling performance
and increases energy consumption. For this reason carefully clean the
condenser at the back of the appliance once a year with a soft brush or
a vacuum cleaner.
2. After everything is dry place appliance back into service.

Regulations, Standards, Guidelines
This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured
in accordance with the appropriate standards. The necessary measures
in accordance with appliance safety legislation regulations (GSG),
accident prevention regulations for refrigeration appliances (VBG 20)
and the regulations of the German Society of Electrical Engineers (VDE)
were observed in the manufacture of this appliance.
The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks.
;
This appliance is in accordance with the following EU guidelines:
– 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines.
– 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989
(including guideline change notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline
Technical Terminology
• Refrigerant
Liquids that can be used to a generate a cooling effect are known as
refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling-point, indeed so low,
that the warmth from the food stored in the fridge or freezer can
cause the refrigerant to boil and vaporise.
• Refrigerant Circuit
Closed circulation system that contains the refrigerant. The
refrigerant circuit comprises primarily of an evaporator, a compressor,
a condenser and pipe work.
• Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Similar to all other
liquids, refrigerant requires heat to evaporate. This heat is removed
from the interior of the appliance, as a result the interior is cooled.
The evaporator is therefore located inside the appliance or placed in
foam immediately behind the inner wall and thus not visible.
• Compressor
The compressor looks like a small drum. It is driven by a built-in
electric motor and is mounted on the base of the appliance at the
rear. The task of the compressor is to draw in vaporised refrigerant
from the evaporator, to compress it, and to pass it on to the
condenser.
• Condenser
The condenser normally has the form of a grid. The refrigerant
compressed in the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. During
this process, heat is released to the surrounding air at the surface of
the condenser. The condenser is mounted on the base of the appliance.
