Important Safety Instructions
These warnings are provided in the interests of your safety. Ensure
you fully understand them before installing or using the appliance.
Your safety is of paramount importance. If you are unsure about the
meaning of these warnings contact the Customer Care Department
for assistance.
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the
storing of food at low temperature. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended or used incorrectly, no liability can
be accepted by the manufacturer for any damage that may be caused.
• Alterations or changes to the refrigerator are not permitted for reasons of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or for purposes other than the cooling of foods, the manufacturer accepts no liability for any damages which may occur.
Prior to initial start–up
• Ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply
cable. Important: if the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced
by authorised service or qualified personnel using a special cable of
the same type.
• Check the appliance for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in. In the event of damage,
please contact your supplier.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.
• During transportation and installation of the appliance, be certain
that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit become
damaged.
• If the refrigerant circuit should become damaged:
– avoid open flames and sources of ignition;
– thoroughly ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
4
Safety of children
• Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children.
There is a risk of suffocation! Keep packaging material away from
children!
• Please make old appliances unusable prior to disposal. Pull out the
mains plug, cut off the mains cable, break or remove spring or bolt
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of suffocation!) or get themselves into other dangerous situations.
• Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household
appliances. It is therefore important that you ensure adequate supervision and never let children play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers
with flammable materials such as spray cans, fire extinguisher refill
cartridges etc in the refrigerator and/or freezer.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator and/or
freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and
unplug it, or pull the house fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
• Placing frozen goods on the top of the appliance can lead to the
accumulation of condensation in the cavity of the storage tray
through contact with the cold. Electronic components are housed
within this cavity. If condensation should drip onto these components, the appliance could be damaged by a short circuit. For this
reason do not place frozen goods on top of the appliance.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not
pull on the cable.
In case of malfunction
• If a malfunction occurs on the appliance, please look first in the
"What to do if ..." section of these instructions. If the information
given there does not help, please do not perform any further repairs
yourself.
• Under no circumstance should you attempt to repair the appliance
yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local AEG Service
Force Centre.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be disposed of or
burned at an incinerating plant without danger.
About the materials: The plastics can be recycled and are identified as
follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in the
interior.
>PS< for polystyrene foam, e.g. the pads, which are all free of chlorofluorocarbon.
The carton parts are made from recycled paper and should be disposed
of at a waste-paper recycling collection location.
Disposal of old Appliances
For environmental reasons, refrigeration appliances must be disposed
of properly. This applies to your old appliance, and - at the end of its
service life - for your new appliance as well.
Warning! Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable.
Remove plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy
any snap or latch closures. This ensures that playing children do not
lock themselves inside the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place
themselves into other life-endangering situations.
Disposal:
• The appliance may not be disposed of with domestic waste or bulky
refuse.
• The refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of
the appliance, must not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from your local Council or Environmental Health Office.
Remove transport packaging
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
☞
Pull off the adhesive tape on the left and right side of the door.
You can remove any remnants of adhesive using white spirit.
☞
6
Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the
appliance.
Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use and efficient performance of the appliance is affected by
the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore
– not be exposed to direct sunlight;
– not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
– only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature
corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is
designed.
The climate classification can be found on the serial plate, which is
located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for
each climate classification:
Climate classification
for an ambient temperature of
SN
+10 to +32 °C
N
+16 to +32 °C
ST
+18 to +38 °C
T
+18 to +43 °C
If the refrigeration appliance is installed next to another refrigerator
or freezer a clearance of 5 cm at the sides is required, in order to prevent the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.
Your refrigerator needs air
For correct operation this appliance must be located in a dry atmosphere, away from heat sources, e.g. cookers, radiators, boilers and
direct sunlight.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back
and the top of the cabinet. There should be 100mm (4”) between the
top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture.
Alternatively allow 50mm (2”) between the top of the cabinet and any
overhanging kitchen furniture and a gap of 25mm (1”) on either side
of the appliance.

If your refrigerator is installed under
a continuous worktop, an air outlet
105
opening of at least 200 cm2 and a
ventilation grille (A/B) matching the
worktop design should be installed at
the rear of the worktop.
The cut surfaces of the worktop (C)
should be varnished to avoid swelling
due to penetration of moisture.
The appliance wall distance must be
at least 30 mm and should be

Technical terminology
24
• 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.
