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 freezer is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the freezing and storing 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 freezer are not permitted for reasons
of safety.
• If you use the freezer in a commercial application or for purposes
other than the freezing or frozen storage of foods, the manufacturer
accepts no liability for any damages which may occur.
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 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.
• 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 bolt
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
4
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!
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 spray cans, fire
extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the appliance.
• 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.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer. 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 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 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 disposed of 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 ensures that playing children do not
lock themselves inside 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, must not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from your local Council or Environmental Health Office.

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.
Your freezer needs air
For correct operation this appliance must be located in a dry atmosphere, away from heat sources, e.g. cookers, radiators, boilers and
direct sunlight.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back
and the top of the cabinet. There should be 100mm (4”) between the
top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture.
Alternatively allow 50mm (2”) between the top of the cabinet and any
overhanging kitchen furniture and a gap of 25mm (1”) on either side
of the appliance.
7
Do not obstruct the space underneath. The back of the cabinet may be
placed close to the wall but must not touch it. DO NOT install in
places with restricted ventilation.
Adjust the level of the appliance by screwing out the adjustable foot,
or feet, at the bottom of the cabinet using your fingers.

Only when the red light (4) has gone out should you reset the fastfreeze switch (2) the amber light (3) goes out and the audible warning
is activated again.
The temperature control knob (1) can be used to set the required storage
temperature, -18°C or colder.
Setting “1” means:
highest, warmest internal temperature
Setting “4” means:
lowest, coldest internal temperature
Recommended control knob setting:
1.5 to 2.
Important: Regularly check on the red temperature pilot light (4) to ensure
that the required storage temperature is being maintained.
Ice pack
There is an ice pack in one drawer of the freezer.
Refer to the section “Prior to Initial Start–Up” concerning freezing of
the ice pack.
In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice pack will
lengthen the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to defrost by
several hours.
The ice pack can only fulfil this task optimally if it is placed in the
uppermost drawer, at the front, above the frozen food.
You can use the ice pack for cooling cold bags.
12
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 spray cans, fire extinguisher refill
cartridges etc in the 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.
Press the fast freeze switch for freezing of fresh food. The amber light
illuminates.
To utilise the maximum rated freezing capacity, switch on the fast
freeze switch 24 hours before freezing is due to start (the amber light
illuminates). For smaller amounts the fast freeze switch should be
switched on 4 - 6 hours in advance.
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.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food and cause skin abrasions.
13
☞
☞
14
Place the packed food in the drawers. Place food to be frozen in the
appliance´s top drawer (1) equipped with its own refrigerating unit.
Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the
frozen food could begin to defrost. Freezer drawers (2), (3) and (4)
should only be used for storage of frozen food. The lowest drawer has
a solid base and can be used for catching some of the melt-water
when the freezer is being defrosted.
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.
Index tabs are supplied for placing on drawers. To mark the contents
of the individual drawers, press the index tab over the corresponding
symbol (see "Frozen Food Symbols/Freezer Calendar" section). This will
give you a better overview of the contents, avoid extended door
opening and therefore save electricity.
Once the required storage temperate has been reached, press the fast
freeze switch again. The yellow light goes out.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special cans for frozen goods;
– extra–thick aluminium foil.
• The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap: plastic clips,
rubber bands or tape.
• Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for
the frozen food to dry out.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
• Do not fill cans for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or
paste–like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar
• The symbols on the drawers show
different types of frozen goods.
• The numbers indicate storage times
in months for the appropriate types
of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated
storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and pretreating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with high
fat content.
• By attaching the included indextabs to the drawers, they can be
marked according to which type of
foods the individual compartments
contain.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
☞
☞
Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer
compartment and leave to freeze.
To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it
under running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer
compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects. Use the ice
scraper supplied.
Defrosting
During use and when the door is opened, moisture is deposited as
frost inside the appliance, particularly on the evaporator. This frost
must be removed from time to time using the soft plastic scraper supplied. Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this
purpose.
The freezer should always be defrosted when the layer of frost has
reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres. Defrost should be carried
out once a year regardless of the amount of frost that has built up. A
good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty or contains
only a small amount of food.
15
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
Each temperature rise reduces the keeping qualities of your frozen
food. Around 12 hours before defrosting your freezer, switch over to
fast freeze to build up a low temperature reserve in the frozen food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, they can be hazardous to your health
and/or contain substances that damage plastics.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store
it, covered, in a cool place.
Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off
the circuit breaker.
Remove all drawers. Insert the plastic
scraper in the special location to act as an
extension channel and place underneath a
basin to collect the defrost water.
Tip: To speed up the defrosting process,
place a pan with warm water in the appliance and close the door.
Remove pieces of ice that have fallen
before they completely defrost.
After defrosting, thoroughly clean the
freezer compartment and interior fittings.
Cleaning and Care
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories, should be cleaned regularly.
Warning!
• The appliance may not be connected to the mains during cleaning.
Danger of electrical shock! Before cleaning switch the appliance off
and remove the plug from the mains, or disconnect from the power
supply.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could
accumulate in electrical components, danger of electrical shock! Hot
vapours can lead to the damage of plastic parts.
• The appliance must be dry before it is placed back into service.
16
☞
☞
☞
Important!
• Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e.g.
– lemon juice or the juice from orange peel;
– butyric acid;
– cleansers which contain acetic acid.
Do not allow such substances to come into contact with appliance
parts.
• Do not use any abrasive cleansers.
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and
lukewarm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may
also be used.
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
After everything is dry, switch to fast freeze. After running the appliance for two or three hours, it is ready again for storing frozen food.
Once the frozen food has been placed in the freezer, return the fast
freeze switch to the off position.
Magnetic door seal
After opening and closing the door of your freezer whilst it is in
operation, you will not immediately be able to open the door again
because a vacuum will have developed inside, keeping the door closed
until the pressures inside and outside the door have equalised. After a
few minutes you can easily reopen the door.
Switching off the appliance
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
To switch off the appliance, turn the temperature regulator to position "0".
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
Remove all deep-frozen packages as well as ice-trays.
Switch off the appliance by turning the temperature regulator to
position "0".
Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker
or fuse.
Defrost freezer and clean thoroughly (see section: “Defrosting and
Cleaning”).
Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.
17
Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources
of warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
• Ensure sufficient air circulation and exhaust at the appliance base
and at the back wall of the appliance. Never cover air vent
openings.
• Do not place warm foods into the appliance. Allow warm foods to
cool first.
• Only leave door open as long as necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Check the storage temperature in the freezer on the thermometer.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.
• Keep the heat emitting condenser, the metal grille on the rear wall
of your appliance, always clean.

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.
