Prior to Initial Start–Up
1
Before connecting the appliance to the mains and starting it for the
first time, leave the appliance to stand for 30 minutes if was
transported upright. After transporting it on its side, the appliance
must be left to stand for 2 hours before switching it on. 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 switched on for the first time. Care should
be especially taken that the mains voltage and frequency available correspond with the appliance’s rating plate.

"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.
Switching the Appliance off
0 1. To switch off, push the ON/OFF button. 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.
2. Remove the mains plug.
3. Clean the appliance thoroughly (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
4. Leave door open to avoid accumulation of odours.

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.

25
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.
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.

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.
