valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the appliance 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 boltcatches, 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!

Prior to Initial Start–Up
GUARANTEE CONDITIONS
• Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial startup (see section: “Cleaning and Care”).
Starting up and temperature regulation
• Insert the plug of the connection lead into the plug socket with protective earth contact. When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the
internal lighting is switched on. The temperature selector knob is located
on the RH side of the refrigerator compartment.
Setting „0“ means: Off.
Setting „1“ means: Hightest temperature, (warmest setting).
Setting „6“ (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
The temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartment cannot be
independently regulated.
If you want the freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting „6“, ensuring that the
temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop blow 0°C. You
should also promptly reset the temperature regulator to setting „3“ or „4“.
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.

• To do this pull the storage shelf forward until it can be swivelled upwards
or downwards and removed.
• Please do the same in reverse to insert the shelf at a different height.
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.
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.
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.
Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a
row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the
rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as possible.

• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• 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. 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. Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer.
• 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.
• Not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
• Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen
food could begin to defrost.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the food.
Place the food to be frozen on the freezer shelf.

• To do this pull the storage shelf forward until it can be swivelled upwards
or downwards and removed.
• Please do the same in reverse to insert the shelf at a different height.
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.
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.
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.
Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a
row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the
rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as possible.

Prior to Initial Start–Up
GUARANTEE CONDITIONS
• Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial startup (see section: “Cleaning and Care”).
Starting up and temperature regulation
• Insert the plug of the connection lead into the plug socket with protective earth contact. When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the
internal lighting is switched on. The temperature selector knob is located
on the RH side of the refrigerator compartment.
Setting „0“ means: Off.
Setting „1“ means: Hightest temperature, (warmest setting).
Setting „6“ (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
The temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartment cannot be
independently regulated.
If you want the freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting „6“, ensuring that the
temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop blow 0°C. You
should also promptly reset the temperature regulator to setting „3“ or „4“.
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.
Interior Accessories
Storage shelves
• You should always slide one of the
