General instructions
You have just purchased a home refrigerator which
has been produced according to the standards ap-
plicable 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-
C€ This appliance complies with the following EC
— 73/23/EEC of 19. 02. 1973 - Low-Voltage Direc-
- 89/336/EEC of 03. 05. 1989 (including Amend-
ment Directive 92/31/EEC) — EMC (Electromag-
netic Compatibility) Directive.
Before starting up, we recommend you to read the
following Operating Instructions, since only by do-
ing so can you benefit from all the advantages o of
fered by your refrigerator.
These Operating Instructions are intended for sev-
eral technically comparable models with different
equipment. Please only follow the instructions cor-
responding to your appliance version.
Please unfold the illustration pages on the cover to

Removing the adhesive tapes
and safety packing
To ensure safety during transport, the door is
secured on the housing with adhesive tapes. De-
pending on model, plastic safety packing or a po-
lystyrene foam insert is interposed between the ap-
pliance door and housing under the adhesive tape
to ensure safety during transport.
You should remove this transport safety packing.
Wipe off any possible adhesive tape residues with a
petroleum-based cleanser or similar solvent.
Commercial use
Should you use. your home refrigerator commer-
cially or for purposes other than refrigeration of food
and drinks, you must observe the legal require-
ments applicable to your area. -
Choice of position
The refrigerating unit needs a good supply of air and
proper ventilation in order to function properly.
Please make sure that the air-vents in the plinth un-
derneath the kitchen cabinet and the air-shafts be-
hind it are not covered over or blocked.
Ambient temperature has an effect on the power
consumption of the unit. The appliance should
- not stand in the direct sunshine, or close to a ra-
diator or cooker
— stand in a position where the ambient tempera-
ture corresponds with the climate category for
which the appliance is designed.
You will find data on this on the rating plate, which is
in the interior of the appliance on the left hand side.
It will consist of one of the following:
Climate category Ambient temperature
from... to ...
SN +10to +32 °C
N +16to+32 °C
ST +1810 +38 °С
T ‚ +1810 +43 °С.
See enciosed installation instructions.
Cleaning before using for the
first time
Like all new appliances, your refrigerator will smell
“new”. For this reason, the interior of the refrigerator
and all accessories should be cleaned before use
(see also “Cleaning and care").
Electrical connection
Please ensure that the voltage and current indicated
on the rating plate agree with the voltage of your
electricity supply.
220/240 volts (i. e. 220/240 V AC).
If your appliance has been equipped with a mains
lead with a moulded-on type plug, you must comply
with the following regulations: The plug moulded on
to the cord incorporates a fuse. For replacement,
use a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse. Only ASTA approved or.
certified fuses should be used. The fuse cover/ car-
rier must be replaced in the event of changing the
fuse. The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/
carrier is lost. A replacement cover/carrier must be
obtained from an electrical goods retailer. If the
socket outlets in your home are not suitable for the
plug fitted to the appliance, then the plug must be
cut off and an appropriate one fitted. When fitting
the plug please note the following points:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accord-
ance with the following code:
Green and Yellow Earth
Blue Neutral
Brown Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
appliance may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, pro-
ceed as follows:
1. The wire which is coloured green and yellow
must be connected to the earth terminal in your
plug, which is marked with the letter E or by the
earth symbol + or coloured green, or green and
2. The wire which is coloured brown must be con-
nected to the live terminal which is marked with
the letter L or coloured red.
3. The wire which is coloured blue must be con-
nected to the neutral terminal which is marked
with the letter N or coloured black.
When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire
are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget
to tighten the mains lead clamp on the plug.
Warning! A cut-off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety {shock) hazard. Ensure
that the cut-off plug is disposed of safely.
Voltage 220/240 VAC
Fuserating 13amps

Starting up and
temperature regulation
The knob for temperature selection is located inthe
refrigerator compartment.
Setting “0” means: Off.
Rotation in direction “1”: Lighting on, refrigerating
unit on, the latter then operating automaticatly.
. Setting “1” means:
highest refrigerating temperature, warmest setting.
Setting “7” means:
lowest refrigerating temperature, coldest setting.
a) During norma! refrigeration without the freezer
compartment being used, you are recom-
mended to use setting “1”, “2”, or “3”. 1f you
want a lower temperature, choose setting “4” or
b) if you are storing frozen food or freezing fresh
“food yourself, you should select setting “4” to
- ву”,
.Example: At a low ambient temperature of around
16 °C, choose setting "6" or “7”.
At a high ambient temperature of around 25 °C and
higher, choose setting "4” or “5”.
After making these settings, you can rest assured
that your fresh food will be reliably frozen without it
being too cold in the refrigerator compartment.
The ambient temperature, loading, and frequent
door opening affect the internal temperature. When
the setting Is changed, the refrigerating unit does
not start immediately if defrosting is then | in pro-
Important note
High ambient temperature and too cold setting of -
the temperature regulator may lead to continuous
operation of the refrigerating unit. Reset the tem-
perature regulator to a warmer setting so that the re-
frigerating unit is regulated and the defrosting cycle
of the refrigerator compartment evaporator auto-
matically introduced.

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 in deep freeze".
For safety reasons (such as the risk of an explosion!)
containers containing inflammable gases, e.g. aer-
osol cans or cigarette lighter refills, must never be
placed in fridge-freezers.
Low-temperature lock

Depending on the type of food stored, the door
racks can be placed in other holders.
VARIO tray set
Fig. 6
Depending on model and features, your refrigerator
is equipped with different trays allowing versatile
combination. The half-trays can be individually or
vertically stacked or used as a closed box. Smaller
trays can be inserted in larger ones above and thus
allow refrigerated food separation depending on
type and size.
storage shelves/racks
The shelves are made of glass or plastic, or take the
form of wire trays, according to the model and
feature you have ordered.
Fixing tongues for plastic shelves
Fig. 7
Before you adjust these shelves to the correct
height you should insert the clamping lugs (A) pro-
vided in the bag in the 4 appropriate pockets on the
underside of the storage rack.
The clamping lugs ensure that the storage racks are
* snugly and safely supported.
Adjusting the storage shelves
Fig. 8a
One storage rack must be placed in the lowest
guides above the fruit and vegetables trays.
To ensure individual space utilization, the other
stable storage shelves or racks are to be arranged
repeatedly depending on refrigerated food height.
For this purpose, pull the storage shelf/rack slightly
forward until it can be swivelled downwards or up-
wards and removed. To insert the shelf/rack at a dif-
ferent level, please proceed in the reserve se-
Adjusting the VARIO glass shelves or storage
Figs. 8b and 9a/b
if, for instance, you wish to store bottles, cans, or
jars in the upright position, please move the front
half of the VARIO glass shelf (if fitted) to a different
level (Fig. 8b), or in the case of wire-tray shelves
slide the front half in under the rear half. You will thus
gain the necessary space to store tall items on the
shelf below (Figs. 9a/b).
. The storage racks can be arranged obliquely to ac-
. commodate openéd bottles.
Make sure that the brackets on the storage racks
point upwards so that the refrigerated food does not
rest against the rear of the refrigerating space — the
integrated evaporator. °
Freezing fresh food and storing
in deep freeze
Before the freezer compartment is loaded with al-
ready frozen food (deep-frozen food) for the first
time, the optimum storage temperature of -18 °C
must have been attained.
You can use the freezer compartment for freezing of
fresh food yourself. Please observe the following in-
structions to be sure of obtaining the best resuits.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time
(max. 2 kg per 24 h). The quality of the food is best
preserved when it is frozen right through to the core
as quickly as possible.
Packed food to be frozen should be placed on the
floor of the freezer compartment directly on the re-
frigerating unit.
Take special care not to mix already frozen foods
with those not yet frozen (minimum distance
4 cm}!
Tightly close the freezer compartment door.
A few useful hints before you start
® Foodstuffs (with the exception of meat - — seo be-
low) must be fresh, mature, and of superior qual-
ity. Only thus wilt you obtain really high-quality
frozen food.
© Fruit and vegetables should be frozen as soon as
possible after harvesting. Only thus will the nu-
trients, structure, consistency, colour, and fla-
vour be retained.
© Meat/game must be hung sufficiently long be-
fore freezing.
Always freeze foodstuffs cold or cooled.
Foostuffs that have been defrosted or are start-
ing to defrost should be immediately consumed,
i. e. not refrozen, unless you intend to process
the raw, defrosted food to make another dish.
When cooked, defrosted food can be refrozen.
® When frozen food is stored, the manufacturer's
storage time instructions must be followed.
® Do not leave the doors of the freezer compart-
ment and refrigerator open unnecessarily long.
Avoid the following when
storing and handling frozen:
With the exception of spirits and drinks containing a
higher percentage of alcohol, beverages in glass
bottles, particularly soft drinks containing carbon
dioxide, juices, beer, wine, etc., should not be
stored in the freezer. When the contents freeze, the
glass bottles will crack or even burst.
Never handle deep-frozen food with wet hands.
Your hands could easily become frozen to the
You can use the ice-tray to make ice-cubes in the
freezer compartment.
Fill the ice-tray */« full with cold water, place it in the
freezer compartment, and allow it to freeze.
Never loosen the frozen-on ice-tray with sharp or
pointed objects.
The ice-cubes can be easily loosened by twisting
the ice-tray or by holding it briefly under running wa-
Fig. 10
The evaporator on the rear wall of the refrigerator
compartment is defrosted fully automatically. The
water automatically evaporates. Frost forming in
the freezer compartment can be removed from time
to time with a plastic scraper (never with a knife or
similar sharp and pointed objects).
The freezer compartment need not be defrosted
very frequently. For this purpose, the appliance
should be unplugged or otherwise disconnected
from the mains supply (by removing the fuse) and’
the door left ajar.
During defrosting, wrap the frozen food in several
layers of newspaper and store in a cool place.
Never use any electric or warming appliances or any
other mechanical or artificial aids to accelerate the
defrosting process except for those recommended in
these operating instructions.
Before defrosting starts, pull the upper storage rack
slightly forwards and place a bowl underneath to col-
lect the thaw water (Fig. 10).
When the layer of frost has melted, wipe the surfa-
ces well dry.
Cleaning and care
Fig. 11
During cleaning, a refrigerator must basically not be
connected to the mains supply (pull out the mains
plug or remove the fuse).
For safety reasons, this appliance must never be
‘cleaned with steam-cleaning equipment. Moisture
could find its way into the electronic components, and
steam could cause damage to the plastic parts.
Make sure that the drain opening of the drip gutter is
always free. If it becomes choked, the thaw water
cannot drain and freely evaporate and will run down
on to the lower storage rack or under the fruit and
vegetable tray. If the water drain opening becomes
choked, {t should be cleaned with the aid of a wire
(Fig. 11).
Some organic solvents as well as essential oils (e. g.
juice from lemon and orange peel, butyric acid) attack
the plastic parts. Do not forget that, even in the re-
frigerator, food stored too long may spoil. To prevent
any odours from forming, the contents should there-
* fore be checked from time to time (including acces-
saries) and thoroughly cleaned with lukewarm water to
which a mild, non-abrasive cleaning agent containing
no acetic acid can be added. Finally, wash with clean
water and wipe dry. After cleaning of the refrigerator
compartment, promptly reconnect the appliance to the
power supply (see section on Starting up).
When not in use
If your refrigerator Is to remain unused for any length
of time, its knob for temperature selection must be
turned to position “0” and the appliance must be dis-
connected (unplugged) from the electricity supply. It
should then be cleaned thoroughly and the appliance
door left open to prevent any odours from forming.
Faults and servicing
In order to keep your appliance in perfectly safe
condition, you should arrange for repairs, par-
ticularly to the “live” parts, to be carried out only
by qualified electricians.
In the event of a break-down you should therefore
contact your electrical dealer or our Customer Ser-
vice Centre.
Before calling the Service Centre, please check
whether there is power in the mains socket (e. g. by
plugging a lamp in). Your local electrician will repair
any defects in the mains supply.
if the defect lies in the appliance, please inform the
nearest Service Centre. In order to avoid unneces-
sary travel or expense, please state:
—- Model description
— E-number
- F-number of your appliance.
You will find these data on the rating plate on the left
inside your appliance. We recommend that you en-
ter them here:
— Modeldescription ..….…....….….…..…..………rrreeeccenansmnn
- E-number ............eeeeneenenenarooone er ercer tr
Please note: We have to make a charge if our
Customer Service technician is called in for no
adequate reason, even if the guarantee has not
yet expired.
Minor repairs you can carry
out yourself
~ Interior lighting:
If the bulb is defective, you can easily change this
yourself. To do this, unplug the appliance (or oth-
erwise disconnect it, e. g. by removing the fuse).
The bulb can be reached from the rear of the
cover. Use only a 15 W spare bulb.
- Spare parts:
Spare parts can be ordered from the service cen-
tre. You can fit them yourself without any special
skill or training.
For example
~ Butter and cheese compartment
Door racks and bottle compartment
Egg holders
Fruit and vegetable trays
Storage racks
— Water on the storage rack or under the fruit and
vegetable trays = clean thaw water drain opening
(Fig. 11).
Hints on correct use
Store your food, depending on type and sensitivity,
in the appropriate refrigerating zones. This will ena-
ble you to achieve an optimum storage duration
(see "Correct storage”). Ensure good packaging or
covering of the food to be stored in your refrigerator.
This ‘ensures that flavour, colour, moisture, and
freshness are retained.
Clean the refrigerator space regularly. This ensures
that your food is hygienically stored and that un-
wanted odours are avoided.
Never place hot food in your refrigerator for cool-
Hints on energy-saving
Do not install your refrigerator next to a radiator or
oven. Through high ambient temperature, the tem-
perature regulator switches on the refrigerating unit
more frequently and for longer.
Ensure good ventilation of your refrigerator. Never
obstruct the ventilation slots.
- Do not place any hot food in the appliance — first al-
low the food to cool to room temperature.
Do not open the doors unnecessarily and close it
again as quickly as possible.
