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
cooling, freezing and storing of frozen food, as well as for making
ice. 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 environment 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.
• Warning - 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!
4
Important Safety Instructions
• 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!

• 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.
• Warning - Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator and/or freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Warning - In order not to impair the function of the appliance,
never cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
• Warning - Do not damage the cooling circuit.
• Warning - 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.
• 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 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.

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.
