the FAST CHILL button again. The yellow light goes out.
Prior to Initial Start–Up
1
Before connecting the appliance to the mains and putting it into
operation for the first time, leave the appliance to stand for 30 minutes
if was transported upright. After transport on its side, the appliance
must be left to stand for 2 hours before putting it into operation. This is
necessary to allow the refrigerant to flow back into the compressor.
Otherwise the compressor may be damaged.
0 1. Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial
start-up (see section: “Maintenance and Cleaning”).
818 22 49-00/6
17
Initial Start-Up
0 1. Insert plug into mains socket.
2. Press ON/OFF button.
3. Set the refrigerator to the desired temperature (see section: "Temperature Adjustment").
3
Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on,
because the storage temperature in the refrigerator is quickly reached.
Temperature Adjustment
With the buttons for temperature adjustment the desired temperatures
in the refrigerator can be adjusted.
0 1. Press either the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button.
The temperature display switches over and the DESIRED temperature
currently set flashes on the temperature display.
2. To adjust to a warmer temperature, press the „+“ (WARMER) button. To
adjust to a colder temperature, press the „-“ (COLDER) button. The
changed setting is immediately displayed on the temperature display.
Each time the button is pressed the temperature is adjusted by 1 °C.
Adjustable temperature range: +2 °C to +8 °C.
Note: From a food safety point of view, +5 °C for the refrigerator
compartment should be considered cold enough as a storage
temperature.
3
When the buttons are not further pressed after an adjustment has been
made, after a short period (approx. 5 sec.) the temperature display switches over and again displays the ACTUAL temperature in the refrigerator. The display changes from flashing to illuminated numbers.
The compressor will start and then run automatically.
Information! When the setting is changed, the compressor does not
start immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place.
18
818 22 49-00/6
"Open Door" Warning
If the fridge door is left open for longer than 5 minutes the red warning display will flash and an acoustic warning tone will sound.
If you need more time to load or rearrange refrigerated foods, you can
switch off the warning tone by pressing the WARNING OFF button.
The red warning display will go off when the door is closed.
Temperature warning
The red warning light flashes and a warning tone sounds, as soon as the
temperature in the refrigerator is warmer than 12 °C. Such a rise in
temperature can possibly be put down to:
– opening the door a lot or leaving it open for a long time;
– storing larger quantities of warm food;
– a fault with the appliance.
You can turn off the warning tone using the WARNING OFF button.
The warning light and the warning tone switch off automatically,
when the ACTUAL temperature existing in the refrigerator drops below
12 °C again.
Switching the Appliance off
0 1. To switch off, push and hold down the ON/OFF button for approx.
1 second. The temperature display will go off.
Note:
The appliance cannot be switched on or off if unplugged, or if there is
no power being supplied to it.
Following connection to the mains power supply, the appliance returns
to the same operating state as before the interruption of main power.
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
0 1. Switch off the appliance, to do this press the ON/OFF button for
approx. 1 second (see above).
2. Remove the mains plug.
3. Clean the appliance thoroughly (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
4. Leave door open to avoid accumulation of odours.

Interior Fittings
Storage Shelves
The shelf in the lowest runners over the fruit and vegetable drawer
must always remain in this position, so that fruit and vegetables stay
fresher for longer.
The remaining storage shelves can
be adjusted to various heights:
0 1. Pull the storage shelf forward until
it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
2. To insert at a different height use
the same procedure in reverse.
Salad Bin
The salad bin can be divided into
sections by inserting the dividers.
0 1. Insert the large divider in the middle or to the left side of the salad
bin as required.
2. If the large divider is inserted in
the middle of the bin the right
hand side can be further divided
by inserting the small divider in
the middle or rear position.
3
20
The ventilation grille above the
salad bin improves air circulation
so that groceries keep for longer.
818 22 49-00/6
Bottle Rack
Place bottles in the rack with the
bottleneck to the front.
Important: Only store unopened
bottles horizontally.
The bottle rack can be tilted for
storing opened bottles.
0 1. To do this pull the bottle rack for-
ward until it can be tilted
upwards, then slide the front support into the next level up.

Bottle Holder
A bottle holder in the bottle compartment is used to prevent individual
bottles from falling over and can be
slid sideways.
Opening the Door
If the door is closed when the appliance is in operation, it cannot be
immediately opened again, because a vacuum occurs which holds the
door closed until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened
again after several minutes.
818 22 49-00/6

compartment has different
temperature zones. The coldest zone
is on the lowest storage shelf
immediately above the fruit and
vegetable drawers. Warmer zones are
the upper storage shelves and door
racks. The arrangement (see fig.)
indicates where different types of
food are best stored to make the
most of temperature variations.
For instance, the shelf immediately
above the fruit and vegetable drawers should be 5 °C for safe storage of
meat and fish products. In order to
check that the appliance is at 5 °C on
the lowest shelf you can carry out
the following test yourself:
0 1. Place a cup of water in the centre of
the said shelf with a thermometer
inside.
2. Leave the fridge door closed overnight and check the temperature first
thing in the morning.
3. At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does,
you need to adjust the temperature to a colder setting.
For further information on keeping food cool and safe a guide
published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is available
and can be obtained free of charge by contacting:
Foodsense, London SE99 7TT. Tel: 0645 556000
Tip: Food stored in the refrigerator compartment should always be
covered or packed so that they do not dry out, lose their flavour, or
transfer their flavour to any other refrigerated food. The following are
suitable for packing:
– polyethylene bags;
– plastic containers with lids;
– special plastic covers with rubber retainers;
– aluminium foil.

Hints and Tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant
is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round
and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the
compressor.
• A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint click
when the thermostat cuts in and out.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator:
• Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your
refrigerator as short as possible.
• Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate
around each item.
2 Energy Saving Advice
• Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker,
dishwasher or radiator.
• Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure
that the air openings of the appliance are not obstructed.
• Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before
placing in the fridge.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the
door too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
• Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing
properly.

Defrosting
The Refrigerator is Defrosted Automatically
The electronics start the defrosting cycle in the refrigerator every time
the compressor stops.
The water collects in the discharge trough at the back wall of the
refrigerator, and is fed through the discharge opening in the catch tray
at the compressor where it is evaporated.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT
the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply.
Internal Cleaning
0 1. Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly.
1
Warning!
• Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning
products, wax polishes or cleaning products containing bleach or
alcohol.
2. Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
External Cleaning
1
Warning!
• Do not use abrasive products
• There are sharp edges on the underside of the product so care should
be taken when cleaning.
0 1. Use a normal household stainless steel cleaner to clean the stainless
steel surface.
This cleaner simultaneously forms a protective film against finger
marks.
1 Caution: Do not allow the stainless steel cleaner to come into contact
with plastic parts, e.g. the end caps on the doors, as it will damage
them.

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.
