Operation
Temperature Display - Figure 4
Audible Alarm Signal - Figure 4
In normal operation, the following settings will be
displayed:
• the average refrigerator temperature
• the warmest frozen food temperature.
The audible alarm signal helps to protect frozen
food and to save energy.
When starting up for the first time or
when the appliance is warm, dashes
will appear in the freezer temperature
display, until the temperature in the
freezer compartment is 32°F (0°C).
The display will flash:
• if you change the temperature or
• if the temperature rises by several degrees, indicating cold loss, e.g. if you place fresh, “warm”
food in the freezer or if you remove or repack
frozen food, the temperature may rise for a short
time due to warm air flowing into the freezer.
• If “F1” to “F5” appears in the display, the appliance has a fault. Have the fault number available
when you contact the customer service department.
Ventilation - Figure 4
The ventilation switch is used for re-circulated cool
air:
You can use the switch as required to:
• chill large quantities of fresh food fast.
• keep the temperature evenly distributed throughout the entire refrigerator compartment. The air
will circulate more intensively, keeping all the
different areas in the compartment at the same
temperature and ensuring all the food inside is
chilled at the same temperature.
We recommended you use the ventilation fan if:
• room temperatures are too high (approximately
95°F [35°C] or higher).
• the air humidity is high, during high heat and
humidity.
Turning on: Touch the Ventilation icon briefly so the
LED
turns on.
Turning off: Touch the Ventilation icon again until
the LED turns off.
The audible alarm signal is switched off by
touching the alarm icon.

This sounds when the door has been left open for
longer than about 180 seconds. The sound switchoff function is active as long as the door is left open.
The alarm automatically switches back to standby
when the door is shut.
Audible/visual temperature alarm
It always sounds if the freezer temperature is not
low enough. The temperature display and the alarm
LED flashes at the same time.
This can be caused by:
- warm, fresh food being placed in the freezer;
- too much warm air from the outside entering
when re-arranging or removing frozen food,
- a fault in the appliance.
The temperature display will continue to flash until
the cause of the alarm has been rectified. It will then
stop flashing and light up continually. The audible
warning signal is now automatically reset.

Freezing
Freezing with Superfrost - Figure 18
Fresh food should be frozen completely and as rapidly as possible. This is provided by the Superfrost
feature and ensures that the nutritional value,
appearance and flavor of the food remains intact.
• Touch the Superfrost icon briefly
Information System - Figure 17
• For small amounts of frozen food, it is normally
sufficient to turn on Superfrost six hours beforehand. For the maximum amount (see freezing
capacity on the model plate) you will need to
turn it on 24 hours before.
Use frozen food within the recommended period.
The numbers between the symbols indicate the
storage period in months for different kinds of
frozen foods. Storage times given are guidelines
for food frozen at home. Whether or not the lower
or upper value is applicable depends on the food
quality and how it was processed prior to freezing.
The lower values always apply to food with a high
fat content.
so the LED

Freezing and Storage
• Pack frozen food in standard freezer bags or
reusable plastic, metal or aluminum containers.
• Do not allow fresh food which is to be frozen
to come into contact with food already frozen.
Always keep packages dry in order to avoid
them sticking together.
• Always write the date and contents on the package and do not exceed the stated storage time
for the food. This prevents spoiling.
• Pack food which you are freezing yourself in
quantities right for your household. To ensure the
food freezes right through quickly, the following
quantities should not be exceeded per package:
- fruit, vegetables: up to 2-1/4 lbs (1 kg);
- meat: up to 5-1/2 lbs (2.5 kg).
• Do not freeze bottles and cans which contain
carbonated drinks as they might burst. Drinks
can be cooled down quickly, but take the bottles
out of the freezer compartment after an hour at
the most.
• Only take out as much food as needed for thawing. Cook food which has been thawed as quickly as possible. Frozen food can be thawed in the
following ways:
- in a microwave oven
- in the refrigerator: the safer way to thaw food
because there is less chance of bacteria
growth. Use this method for high density food
such as roasts or poultry.

• Remove vegetable drawers.
• Clean the equipment parts by hand with lukewarm water and dishwasher detergent.
Do not clean the equipment parts in a
dishwasher. Strips of these parts could
get loose.
• Clean the refrigerator and freezer drawers interior with lukewarm water and dishwasher detergent.
• Dry all parts well with a cloth.
• Do not damage or remove the model plate on
the inside of the appliance. It is very important
for servicing your appliance.
Defrosting/Vacation
Defrosting
Refrigerator compartment:
The refrigerator compartment defrosts automatically. The water that forms on the rear wall drains into
a reservoir at the back of the appliance and evaporates automatically through the compressor heat.
Freezer compartment:
The No-frost system automatically defrosts the
freezer compartment. Any moisture will collect on
the evaporator and freeze. It will periodically defrost
and evaporate.
Vacation Tips
Short vacations:
It is not necessary to turn off the refrigerator and
freezer if you will be away for less than four weeks.
• Use all perishables.
• Freeze other items.
Long vacations:
If you will be away for a month or more:
• Remove all food from the refrigerator and freezer
compartments.
• Turn off the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
• Clean the appliance. Refer to Cleaning.
• Leave the door open to prevent unpleasant
odors. This will also keep mold from building up.

The freezer temperature display will only show temperatures that are
below freezing. When initially starting the freezer it will not be below
freezing. It will take three to five hours (depending on ambient conditions)
for freezing temperatures to be achieved and thus displayed numerically.
This may also occur after a power failure.
