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.

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.

1.

• 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.

Preparation of Ice Cubes

1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer compartment and leave to freeze.

2.

To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it under running water for a few seconds.

• 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

• 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 full size glass storage shelf into the lowest set of guides, above the fruit and the vegetable containers, and keep it in this position.
