818 17 59-00/5
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 oil 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. Remove the cold accumulation block from the freezer tray.
3. Place the cold accumulation block into a compartment or drawer only
after the optimal storage temperature of -18 °C has been reached, and
allow to freeze.
4. After 24 hours place the cold accumulation block at the front of the
upper drawer.
5. Re-freeze the thawed cold accumulation block in the same fashion, e.g.
after cleaning the appliance.
818 17 59-00/5

818 17 59-00/5
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.

23
Control and Information Systems
The control and information systems consist of temperature displays,
an optical warning display and an acoustic warning.
The system warns if:
– the temperature in the freezer compartment is too high;
– functional faults with the appliance.
Temperature Warning
The red warning display flashes and an audible warning sounds, as soon
as the temperature in the freezer compartment is warmer than -12 °C.
A rise in temperature may be caused by:
– frequent door opening for long periods of time;
– loading with large quantities of warm foods;
– high ambient temperature;
– an error of the appliance.
The audible warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF button. Both warning display and audible warning are automatically
switched off, when the ACTUAL temperature in the freezer compartment falls to the range of the display.
3
The warning tone switches off automatically after one hour, even if the
ACTUAL temperature is still different to the DESIRED temperature. The
red warning light continues to flash.
Opening the Freezer Compartment Door
If the freezer compartment door is closed when the appliance is in
operation, it is possible that it cannot be immediately opened again. A
vacuum occurs in the freezer compartment which holds the door closed
until the pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened again
after several minutes.

Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves
0 1. A storage shelf must be inserted into the lower guide track above the
fruit and vegetable drawers. It must always remain in this position, so
that fruit and vegetables remain fresh 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 two-
part 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.

(not included with all models)
Some models are equipped with a
bottle holder in the bottle compartment. This is used to prevent
individual bottles from falling over
and can be slid sideways.
26
818 17 59-00/5
Correct storage
For physical reasons, the refrigerator
compartment has different
temperature zones. The coldest zone
is on the lowest storage shelf
immediately above the fruit and
vegetable drawers. Warmer zones are
the upper storage shelves and door
racks. The arrangement (see fig.)
indicates where different types of
food are best stored to make the
most of temperature variations.
For instance, the shelf immediately
above the fruit and vegetable drawers 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 regulator 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.
818 17 59-00/5
27
Freezing
Except for the bottom drawer, which serves only for storage purposes,
all compartments and drawers in the freezer compartment are suitable
for freezing.
Warning!
• Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer
compartment must be -18°C or colder.
• Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity represents the maximum amount of fresh goods
that can be frozen within 24 hours. If you freeze goods on several
days, one after the other, freeze amounts equal to 2/3 to 3/4 of the
capacity indicated on the rating plate.
• When freezing large quantities of food, place the frozen accumulation block at the front into the top drawer in the freezing compartment.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
0 1. For freezing the maximum capacity press the FROSTMATIC button 24
hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities. Yellow
indicator lights up.
3
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities of up to 3 kg.
2. All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
3. Place packaged goods in the drawers. Unfrozen goods may not come
into contact with already frozen goods, otherwise the frozen goods
may start to thaw.
3
28
The appliance electronics automatically switch the FROSTMATIC function off after a period of 48 hours. The yellow indicator light goes out.
You can also stop the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing the
FROSTMATIC button again.
818 17 59-00/5
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– plastic containers for frozen foods;
– extra-thick aluminium foil
• The following are suited for sealing bags and wraps:
plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.
• Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air
encourages drying of frozen goods.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
• Do not fill plastic containers for frozen foods to the brim with liquid
or paste-like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
Frozen Storage
Warning! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with
previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18 °C
must be reached.
• Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods can occur.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
goods.
2
When possible store frozen goods separately according to type in
drawers.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 1. Fill ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water and place in the freezer tray
or a drawer and allow to freeze.
2. To remove the finished ice cubes twist the ice cube tray or hold under
running water for a short time.
Warning! Do not, under any circumstances, free an ice tray which is
frozen to the appliance with pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a
spoon-handle or similar object.
818 17 59-00/5
29
Defrosting
The refrigerator is defrosted automatically
The electronics start the defrosting cycle in the refrigerator every time
the compressor stops.
The water collects in the discharge trough at the back wall of the
refrigerator, and is fed through the discharge opening in the catch tray
at the compressor where it is evaporated.
Freezer Compartment Defrosting
Moisture is precipitated in the form of white frost in the freezer
compartment during operation and when the door is opened, especially
in the middle at the top. Remove this white frost from time to time
with a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a dough scraper. Do not under any
circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose.
The appliance should be defrosted when the thickness of the white
frost has reached about 4 mm; but at least once a year in any case. A
convenient time for defrosting is any time when the appliance is empty,
or only minimally loaded.
1
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the
exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, because they may be health
endangering and/or contain substances damaging to plastics.
0 1. About 12 hours prior to defrosting push the FROSTMATIC button, in
order to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in operation.
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
2. Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover
them and store them in a cool place.
3. Switch off refrigerator and freezer and remove plug from the mains, or
disconnect from the electricity supply.
30
818 17 59-00/5
4. Remove all the drawers. Remove
the plinth (see "Reversing the Door"
section). Place the bottom drawer
directly in front of the appliance to
collect the water from defrosting
and pull out the water drain conduit.
Tip: In order to speed up the
defrosting process, place a pot of
hot water in the freezer
compartment. In addition, remove pieces of ice that break away before
defrosting is complete.
5. After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as interior
accessories (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
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/freezer:
• 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
freezer 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 freezer compartment.
• 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. Press the FROSTMATIC button several hours in advance, in order to

Something Not Working
Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, check the following
points.
Symptom
Solution
Check there is power at the socket
No power to the appliance.
Check there is not a power cut by
checking the household lights.
Check the fuse has not blown.
Check the ambient temperature is within
the appliances operating limits
The temperature in the refrigerator/
freezer is too high.
Check the temperature regulator is
turned to the correct setting relative to
ambient conditions.
Water on the floor
Water drain hole is blocked,
see "Maintenance and Cleaning".
Interior illumination does not function.
Important: The interior lighting switches
off automatically after 20 minutes.
Please refer to "Replace Light Bulb "
section.
Adjust the temperature regulator to give
correct temperature control.
Check that the door is closed.
The compressor runs continuously
Large quantities of food have recently
been placed in the cabinet and/or door is
frequently opened.

obstructed.
34
Excessive build up of frost.
If the door seal is not airtight (probably
after reversing the door) apply warm air
to the non sealing area using a hair dryer
set to a gentle heat. (do not use a fan
heater for this purpose). This will make
the rubber more supple and allow it to
revert to its original shape.
Noise
Refer to Normal Operating Sounds
818 17 59-00/5
Something Not Working
Symptom

35
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.
