Safety
The safety aspects of our refrigerators/freezers comply with accepted
technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Nevertheless, we consider it our obligation to make you aware of the following
safety information:
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the
cooling. 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 appliance are not permitted for reasons
of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or forpurposes
other than the cooling, freezing or frozen storage of foods,please
observe all valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the refrigerator for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in! In the event of damage,
please contact the vendor.
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.
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 bolt4
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
themselves in the fridge 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, for example, spray cans, fire
extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer compartment.
They can burst when the contents freeze, high carbonate content
drinks can even explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine,
sparkling wine etc. in the freezer compartment. Exception: high
alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer compartment.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment. Very cold ice can freeze to
the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze
to the food.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator/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.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not
pull on the cable.
In case of malfunction
• If the 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.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped 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 eliminates the danger that playing
children lock themselves into 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, may not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.
Remove transport safeguard
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
• Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of
the appliance.
You can remove any remnants of adhesive using white spirit.

Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use 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: each climate classification:

If installation next to a source of heat is unavoidable, the following
minimum clearances must be maintained at the sides of the appliance:
– for electric cookers 3 cm;
– for oil and coal fired ranges 30 cm.
If these clearances cannot be maintained a heat insulating pad is
required between the cooker and the refrigeration appliance.
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.

Starting up and temperature regulation
• Insert the plug of the connection lead into the plug socket with protective earth contact. Turn the thermostat knob (B), clockwise,
beyond the «O»(STOP) position. The pilot light (A) will light up, indicating that the appliance is in operation.
Setting „0“ means: Off.
Setting „1“ means: Hightest temperature, (warmest setting).
Setting „4“ (end-stop) means: Lowest temperature, (coldest setting).
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in the mind that
the temperature inside the refrigerator depends on:
-the quantity of food stored
-how often the door is opened
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on the temperature regulator (position"5" to "6") can cause the
compressor to run continuously.
If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer setting (position "3" to "4"). At this setting the compressor will be switched
on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.

the lowest set of guides, above the fruit and the vegetable containers, and keep it in this position.
• The height of the storage shelves can be adjusted:
• To do this pull the storage
shelf forward until it can be
swivelledupwards
or
downwards and removed.
• Please do the same in reverse to insert the shelf at a different height.Slide the front
half of the Vario storage shelf
in another level to the rear.
By this means you will gain
space to place tall items on
the storage shelf below.

Adjusting the upper door rack
• Depending on the food stored, the upper door racks
can be changed to other holders or removed. Take out
the refrigerators food, press
the door racks digonally
upwards at their edges,
reposition them, and press
them back into place.
D026
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquide in the refrigeator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
• Position food so that air can circuiate freely round it.
12
Useful hints:
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer(s)For safety, store in this way only one
or two days at the most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc: these should be covered and may
be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and
placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as
much air as possible.
Milk bootles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the
bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must not be
kept in the refrigerator.
Defrosting
Refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the
refrigerator
compartment
every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use.
The defrost water drains out
through a trough into a special
container at the back of the
appliance, over the motor
compressor, where it evaporates.
D037
We particulary recommend that you peridically clean the
defrost-water drainage outlet, located in the center of the
drainage groove in the refrigerator compartment, to prevent the
defrost water form overflowing on to foods stored in the compartment. Use a special cleaner provided, which you will find
already inserted into the discharge hole.
