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.
• Place frozen goods into the refrigerator for thawing. Cold from frozen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator.
• Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.
• If the interior of the appliance should be used partly, the economy
freezing space divider (special accessory) can be inserted instead of a
freezing tray. This enables additional energy saving.
7
The most important characteristic
of your appliance
• The appliance allows being used as a freezing unit or as a refrigerator
depending on requirement. For this purpose, the operation mode
"Freezing" or the operation mode "Cooling" can be selected on the
appliance.
– In the operation mode "Freezing", the appliance is usable for
freezing and deep-temperature storage with temperatures from
-15 °C up to -24 °C.
– In the operation mode "Cooling", this appliance can be operated as
a "long fresh" cooling unit with temperatures from 0 °C or +2 °C,
whereby a dry interior room climate is attained through the nofrost-technology. The appliance is suitable in the adjustable temperature range of up to +16 °C, but also as a reservoir and drinks
cooler. Naturally, it is also usable as a "normal" refrigerator for the
temperature range of about +5 °C.
• FAST CHILL/FAST FREEZE can be selected depending on purpose and
need.
– The FAST CHILL function is suitable for fast cooling larger quantities in the cooling room, e.g. for drinks or salads during a party.
Thereby, a SET temperature of +2 °C is automatically preset. After
6 hours have expired, the FAST CHILL function is terminated automatically.
– The FAST FREEZE function caters for quick freezing of fresh foodstuffs and protects at the same time the already stored foodstuff
against undesired temperature increase in the freezing room. The
electronics of the appliance recognises automatically, when the
quick freezing mode can be completed, and automatically switches
off the FAST FREEZE function.(Depending upon the quantity to be
frozen after 30 up to maximum 51 hours).
• The no-frost-system enables both the freezing of fresh foodstuff as
well as the storage of readily frozen or cooled foodstuff by cold air. A
vaporiser cools the air in the interior space of the appliance, which is
circulated and uniformly distributed by a ventilator. This uniformly
circulating air-flow caters for a dry climate, low temperature fluctuations and low temperature differences in the entire appliance’s interior room. The moisture in the air condenses as frost on the vaporiser.
The vaporiser thaws full-automatically, as soon as this is necessary.
The melted water is drained off outside to the compressor and evaporates through the heat generated by the latter. Thus, the interior of
the appliance and the stored cooled or frozen foodstuffs always
remain ripe and ice-free. Manual thawing is dispensed of.

The berries are not squeezed and maintain their natural form. The frozen berries can then be stored in compartments or drawers packaged in
individual portions.
The freezing tray also serves for accommodating small frozen foodstuffs (e.g. herbal produce), furthermore you can accommodate ice
cube trays.
Quick door-opener
The quick door-opener enables
easy opening through its integrated opening mechanism.
Please observe that both fingers
(A) always interlock in the fold
of door seal, according to the
figure.
Interior Illumination

Control and Information Systems
The control and information systems consist of a temperature display,
an optical warning display and an acoustic warning device.
The system warns of:
– open appliance door;
– power interruption;
– excessive temperature in the freezer compartment (only in the
operation mode "Freezing");
– possible partial or complete thawing of frozen goods;
– functional disturbances at the appliance.
"Open Door"-Warning
The red warning indicator blinks when the door is opened. If the door
remains open longer than approx. 80 seconds, an extra warning tone
sounds. If you need more time for sorting or rearranging frozen foodstuff, you can switch off the 80 seconds warning tone by pressing the
WARNING OFF button.
Power Interruption
If the power supply is interrupted, an audible warning sounds at
20 second intervals. In addition, the current actual temperature in the
freezer compartment is indicated in blinking fashion by the temperature display (2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). After one hour the audible
warning only sounds at 40 second intervals.
The audible warning can be switched off for about 2 hours with the
WARNING OFF button.
In the event of a power interruption, the control and information systems can maintain operation of the temperature display and warning
signal for up to 12 hours.
Temperature Warning
(only in the operating mode ’’Freezing“)
The red warning display blinks and an audible warning sounds, as soon
as the temperature in the freezer compartment climbs to more than
5°C above the selected SET temperature. A rise in temperature of more
than 5°C may be caused by:
– frequent door opening for long periods of time;
– loading with large quantities of warm foods;
– an error with the appliance.
18
Control and Information Systems
The audible warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF button.
Both warning display and audible warning are automatically switched
off when the actual temperature in the freezer compartment falls to
4°C warmer than the selected SET temperature.
Note:
• The red warning display and the audible warning are inoperable:
– after temperature adjustment, until the selected SET temperature
has been reached (exception: actual temperature exceeds -10°C).
• Only the audible warning is inoperable:
– after the appliance is switched on, and until the selected SET temperature has been reached for the first time;
– when the FAST FREEZE button is depressed.
Partial/Complete Thaw Warning
If frozen goods have been partially or completely thawed (e.g. during a
temporary power interruption), the red warning display blinks.
In addition the temperature display alternately indicates:
– the highest temperature to which the frozen goods have warmed;
– and the current actual temperature in the freezer compartment.
If suspicion of partial or complete thawing exists, please check the
quality of the foods to determine if they can be used.
As soon as the temperature in the freezer compartment has again
fallen below the critical thawing temperature of -4°C, the partial/complete thaw warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF button.
3
After the appliance has been switched on, the partial/complete thaw
warning remains inoperative until the selected SET temperature has
been reached for the first time.
Function Errors
If the appliance electronics have detected a technical malfunction
which has to be corrected by a customer service technician, both optical and acoustic warnings are activated. In addition the temperature
display alternately indicates:
– an error message (error code F1, F2, etc.) and
– the current freezer compartment temperature (actual temperature).
19
3
An appliance malfunction which is indicated by an error code, must be
corrected by a customer service technician. The acoustic warning can
be switched off for 24 hours with the WARNING OFF button. Cancelling
of the error display is possible by switching the appliance off, which
should however only be undertaken during repair by the customer
service technician.
Freezing
Freezing
Attention!
• Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer compartment must be -18°C or colder.
• Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the serial plate. The
freezing capacity represents the maximum amount of fresh goods
that can be frozen within 24 hours. If you freeze goods on several
days, one after the other, freeze amounts equal to 2/3 to 3/4 of the
capacity indicated on the serial plate.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
0 For exploitation of maximum freezing capacity press the FAST FREEZE
button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities.
Yellow display lights up.
The FAST FREEZE button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities of up to 3 kg.
0 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 goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
0 Place packaged foods in the compartments or drawers. Unfrozen goods
may not come into contact with already frozen goods, otherwise the
frozen goods may start to thaw.
3

20
The appliance electronics recognise automatically when the FAST
FREEZE function can be ended, and switch it off automatically. Yellow
display goes out. You can also stop the FAST FREEZE function manually
by pressing the FAST FREEZE button again.
Freezing
• To allow storage of awkward freezing foodstuff, the drawers of the
appliance are individually removable. They can be stacked in the one
lying below.
• The following are suitable for packing foodstuffs to be frozen:
– freezing bags and foils made of polyethylene;
– special tins for frozen food;
– aluminium foil, extra strong.
• The following are suited for sealing bags and wraps:
plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.
• Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air encourages drying of frozen goods.
• 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.
3
Note for inspection authorities:
Batch plans for the determination of freezing performance or warm-up
time can be requested directly from the manufacturer.
Frozen Storage
Attention! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18°C must
be reached.
• Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods can occur.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
goods.
2
In so far as possible store frozen goods separately according to type in
compartments and drawers. Some models are provided with index-tabs
which can be attached to compartment doors and drawers. In order to
identify the contents of individual compartments, attach the indextabs so that they cover the storage goods symbols (see section:
"Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar"). Thus, you will have a better overview, avoid opening the door for a long time and save power.
3
From a food safety point of view, -18 °C is deemed sufficient as cold
storage temperature.
21
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 Fill ice cube tray (not included with all models) 3/4 full with cold water
and place in the freezer tray or a drawer and allow to freeze.
0 To remove the finished ice cubes twist the ice cube tray or hold under
running water for a short time.
Attention! Do not, under any circumstances, free an ice tray which is
frozen to the appliance with pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a
spoon-handle or similar object.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar
(not included with all models)
• The symbols on the compartment flaps and 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
pre-treating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with
high fat content.
• By attaching the included
index-tabs to the compartment flaps and drawers, they
can be marked according to
which type of foods the individual compartments contain.
Cooling
The appliance is suitable, depending upon the preset temperature, for
• "Long Fresh" Cooling
• "Standard" Cooling
• Drinks cooling.
3
22
The drawers of the appliance can be removed individually.
The removal is then especially advantageous if due to its size the foodstuff you want to cool does not fit inside a drawer. You can in this case
stack the drawer below correspondingly higher.
Instead of the drawers, wire shelves can also be pushed in. You can purchase the wire shelves as a special accessory from your retailer.
Cooling
"Long Fresh" Cooling
By selecting the SET temperature of 0 °C or +2 °C this appliance can be
used as a "Long Fresh" cooling unit.

Whenever the compressor switches on or off, a click can be heard.
• Humming
As soon as the compressor is in operation, you can hear it humming.
• Bubbling/Splashing
When refrigerant flows into thin tubes, you can hear bubbling or
splashing noises. Even after the compressor has been switched off,
this noise can be heard for a short time.
• Noise
The ventilator generates air flow whereby noise can be emitted.
Regulations, Standards, Guidelines
This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured
in accordance with the appropriate standards.
The necessary measures in accordance with appliance safety legislation
regulations (GSG), accident prevention regulations for refrigeration
appliances (VBG 20) and the regulations of the German Society of Electrical Engineers (VDE) were observed in the manufacture of this appliance.
The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks.
;
This appliance is in accordance with the following EU guidelines:
– 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines.
– 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989
(including guideline change notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline.
29
Special accessories
Special accessories are available from your retailer.
• Economy freezing space divider:
If the interior room of the appliance should be used partly, an economy freezing-room divider can be inserted instead of the freezing
tray. This allows for additional energy saving.
• Deposit grid:
Instead of the drawers, wire shelves can be inserted. This is especially
then advantageous, if the appliance is used as a refrigerator or as
drinks cooler.
Technical Terminology
• Refrigerant
Fluids, which are used for refrigeration are called refrigerants. They
have a relatively low boiling point; so low, that the warmth of foods
in the refrigeration appliance can cause them to boil or vaporise.
• Refrigerant circuit
Sealed circulation system, in which the refrigerant is found. The
refrigerant circuit consists for the most part of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser and tubing.
• Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. This warmth is withdrawn from the appliance interior, which is thus cooled. Like all fluids, refrigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. For this
reason the evaporator is located in the appliance interior.
• Compressor
The compressor looks like a small bin. It is powered by an electric
motor and is housed at the back in the base of the appliance. It is the
task of the compressor to withdraw vaporous refrigerant from the
evaporator, to compress it and feed it to the condenser.
• Condenser
The condenser is usually in the form of a grid. Compressed refrigerant
from the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. Thus warmth is
released, which is given off into the surrounding air at the surface of
the condenser. The condenser is therefore outside of the appliance,
usually at the back.
