General instructions
You have just purchased a home indge-freezer
which has been produced according to the stan-
dards apphcable to these appliances.
During manufacture, the necessary measures have
been taken as required by the Appliance Safety Act
(GSG). the Accident Prevention Regulations for Re-
frigerating Installations (VBG 20), and the Specifica-
tions of the Institute of German Electrical Engineers
The refrigeration circuit has been checked for leak-
age The apphance is radio-interference suppressed
in accordance with EC Directive 82/499/EC as well
as with the Standard relating to the Retroactive Ef-
fect of the Mains Supply EN 60 555 Parts 1-3/DIN
VDE 0838 Parts 1-3. June 1987.
Before starting up. we recommend you to read the
following operating instructions, since only by doing
so can you benefit from all the advantages offered
by your fridge-freezer. Please unfold the illustration
pages on the cover to enable you to compare the
text and pictures alongside.
Removing the adhesive tapes
The doors are secured to the housing with adhesive
tapes. Remove any adhesive tape residues with a
suitable petroleum-based cleansing agent.
Commercial use
Should you use your home fridge-freezer commer-
cially or for purposes other than refrigeration. freez-
ing, and deep frozen storage of food and drinks, you
must observe the legal requirements applicable to
your area.

The EE mark tells you that frozen food can be
stored in this compartment.
The storage time depends on the type of food con-
cerned (see manufacturer's instructions).
Smaller quantities of fresh food can also be frozen.
See the section covering “Freezing fresh food and
storing frozen food
Freezing fresh food and storing
frozen food
Fig. 3
You can use your freezer compartment for storing
frozen food and freezing fresh food yourself
Before the freezer compartment is loaded with al-
ready frozen food (deep-trozen food) for the first
time, the optimum storage temperature of -18°C
must have been attained (see section on “Starting up
and temperature regulation ).
When freezing fresh food yourself, please observe
the following instructions to be sure of obtaining the
best results.
Freeze only sound fresh food. DO not freeze too
large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the
food is best preserved when itis frozen right through
to the core as quickly as possible. Food preparation
is described in the Freezer Book. Do not exceed the
freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 hours as in-
dicated on the rating plate.
If you want to carry out freezing in several consecu-
tive days, only utilize *3 to “4 of this capacity.
Packed food to be frozen should be placed directly
on the refrigerating unit (A). Take special care not to
mix already frozen foods with those not yet fro-
After around 24 hours (earlier for smaller quantities),
the temperature regulator can be reset to the stor-
age temperature.
After freezing, you can leave the frozen food at the
freezing level concerned.
If. however, further food is to be frozen, you must
restack the frozen food on the storage racks to free
the surface (A) of the refrigerating unit,

The do’s and don’ts of storing
frozen food
Once the freezing process is completed, deep-
frozen storage takes place in the temperature range
at least below -18 °C (see section on "Starting up
and temperature regulation ).
When freezing food yourself, please note the maxi-
mum storage times or those indicated in the Freezer
For storage of already frozen food, itis imperative to
note the storage time specified by the manufacturer
on the packaging.
Make sure that only packaged food is stored in the
freezer compartment. since unpackaged food wil
soon dry out when exposed to the extreme cold.
With the exception of spints and drinks containing a
higher percentage of alcohol. beverages in glass
bottles, particulariy. soft drinks containing carbon di-
oxide. juices, heer. wine. etc should not be stored in
the freezer. When the contents freeze. the glass bot-
tles will crack or even burst
Never handle frozen food with wet hands. Your
hands could easily become frozen to the food. Never
use the freezer as a means of cooling hot meals.
since this causes heavy frost formation inside the
appliance and an increase in power consumption.
If you want to utilize the effective capacity of your
freezer compartment fully and need to accommo-
date an especially large amount of frozen food. you
can take out all storage racks You can then place
frozen food directly on the refrigerating unit. Even
when food is loaded in this way. the functional safety
of your fridge-freezer is assured
Freezer Book
The Freezer Book contains all detailed information
and hints on freezing and storage.
Making ice-cubes
Fill the ice-tray(s) 3+ full with cold water, place in the
freezer compartment, and allow to freeze Never
loosen frozen-on ice-tray(s) with sharp or pointed
objects, or you could irreparably damage the refrig-
erating circuit. The ice-cubes can be easily loosened
by twisting the ice-tray or by holding it briefly under
running water.
If your model is fitted with a holder in the storage
rack. you can conveniently insert the ice-trays

moisture is deposited as frost on the evaporator.
You will avoid heavy frost formation by not leaving
the freezer compartment door open unnecessarily
long. You will also save power, since heavy frost for-
mation impairs the refrigerating efficiency of your
fridge-freezer. If limited frosting occurs above, it is
not necessary to defrost the whole appliance. Re-
move this frost from time to time with a plastic scrap-
er. e.g. pastry scraper (not with a knife or the

the corresponding entry.
Storage racks

All storage racks are height-adjustable for accom-
modation of e. g. bulky items.
For storage of opened bottles, the storage racks can
be slanted. Flavour adulterations due to corks are
thereby avoided.

them from tilting.
VARIO keep-fresh box

Depending on model and features. your fridge-

The VARIO keep-fresh box caters for the require-
ment that some foods are best kept airtight and oth-
ers kept ventilated Depending on the position of the
