Technical safety
The appliance contains a small
quantity of environmentally
friendly but flammable
refrigerant R600a. Ensure that
the tubing of the refrigerant
circuit is not damaged during
transportation and installation.
Leaking refrigerant may cause
eye injuries or ignite.
If damage has occurred
■ Keep naked flames and/or
ignition sources away from the
■ thoroughly ventilate the room
for several minutes,
■ switch off the appliance and
pull out the mains plug,
■ inform customer service.
The more refrigerant an
appliance contains, the larger
the room must be in which the
appliance is situated. Leaking
refrigerant can form a
flammable gas-air mixture in
rooms which are too small.
The room must be at least 1 m³
per 8 g of refrigerant. The
amount of refrigerant in your
appliance is indicated on the
rating plate inside the appliance.
If the power cord of this
appliance is damaged, it must
be replaced by the
manufacturer, customer service
or a similarly qualified person.
Improper installations
and repairs may put the user
at considerable risk.
Repairs may be performed by
the manufacturer, customer
service or a similarly qualified
person only.
Only original parts supplied by
the manufacturer may be used.
The manufacturer guarantees
that only these parts satisfy the
safety requirements.
A extension cable may be
purchased from customer
service only.

Do not use pointed or sharpedged implements to remove
frost or layers of ice. You
could damage the refrigerant
tubes. Leaking refrigerant may
cause eye injuries or ignite.
Do not store products which
contain flammable propellants
(e.g. spray cans) or explosive
substances in the appliance.
Explosion hazard!

Ambient temperature
and ventilation
Ambient temperature
The appliance is designed for a specific
climate class. Depending on the climate
class, the appliance can be operated at
the following temperatures.
The climate class can be found on
the rating plate. Fig. Climate
Permitted ambient
+10 °C to 32 °C
+16 °C to 32 °C
+16 °C to 38 °C
+16 °C to 43 °C
The appliance is fully functional within
the room temperature limits
of the indicated climatic class. If
an appliance of climatic class SN
is operated at colder room temperatures,
the appliance will not be damaged up to
a temperature of +5 °C.
Fig. !/6
The refrigeration unit is ventilated only via
the ventilation grille in the base. Never
cover the ventilation grille or place
anything in front of it. Otherwise
the refrigeration unit must work harder,
increasing the power consumption.
Installation location
Install the appliance in a dry, well
ventilated room. The installation location
should neither be exposed to direct
sunlight nor near a heat source,
e. g. a cooker, radiator, etc. If installation
next to a heat source is unavoidable, use
a suitable insulating plate or observe
the following minimum distances to a
heat source:
3 cm to electric or gas cookers.
30 cm to an oil or coal-fired cooker.
An attachment under certain worktops,
e.g. stone, glass or stainless steel, is
frequently not possible. You can order
accessories from customer service for
installation on the side walls.
the appliance
After installing the appliance, wait at least
1 hour until the appliance is switched on.
During transportation the oil in
the compressor may have flowed into
the refrigeration system.
Before switching on the appliance for
the first time, clean the interior of
the appliance (see chapter “Cleaning
the appliance”).
Electrical connection
The socket must be near the appliance
and also freely accessible following
installation of the appliance.
The appliance complies with the
protection class I. Connect the appliance
to 220–240 V/50 Hz alternating current
via a correctly installed socket with
protective conductor. The socket must
be fused with a 10 to 16 A fuse.
For appliances operated in nonEuropean countries, check whether the
stated voltage and current type match
the values of your mains supply. This
information can be found on the rating
plate. Fig. -

Operating tips
The refrigerator compartment
temperature rises:
■ if the appliance door is opened
■ if large quantities of food are placed in
the refrigerator compartment,
■ if the ambient temperature is high.
Medium setting for long-term storage
of food.
Select a higher setting only
temporarily, when the door is
frequently opened or large quantities
are placed in the refrigerator
Refrigeration capacity
The temperature in the refrigerator
compartment may rise temporarily if
large amounts of food or a lot of drinks
are placed inside.
Therefore the temperature controller
should be set to a higher setting for
approx. 7 hours.
Usable capacity
the temperature
Turn temperature controller, Fig. "/A, to
the required setting.
When the controller is at a medium
setting, the temperature drops
to approx. +4 °C in the coldest zone.
Fig. #
Higher settings lower the temperature in
the refrigerator compartment.
We recommend:
■ Perishable food should not be stored
above +4 °C.
■ Low setting for short-term
storage of food (energy-saving mode).
Information on the usable capacity can
be found inside your appliance on
the rating plate. Fig. -
The refrigerator compartment is the ideal
storage location for ready meals, cakes
and pastries, preserved food, condensed
milk, hard cheese, fruit and vegetables
sensitive to cold.
Note when loading products
Wrap or cover food before placing
in the appliance. This will retain
the aroma, colour and freshness
of the food. In addition, flavours will not
be transferred between foods
and the plastic parts will not become
Avoid contact between food and rear
panel. Otherwise the air circulation will
be impaired.
Food or packaging could freeze
to the rear panel.
Note the chill zones
in the refrigerator
The air circulation in the refrigerator
compartment creates different chill
Coldest zone is in the pull-out
container. Fig. #
Store perishable food (e.g. fish,
sausage, meat) in the coldest zone.
Warmest zone is at the very top
of the door.
Store e.g. hard cheese and butter
in the warmest zone. Cheese can then
continue to release its flavour and the
butter will still be easy to spread.

defrosts fully automatically
While the refrigerating unit is running,
beads of condensation or hoarfrost form
at the back of the refrigerator
compartment. This is quite normal. It
is not necessary to wipe off
the condensation or frost. The rear panel
defrosts automatically. The condensation
runs into the condensation channel,
Fig. *. and is conveyed
to the refrigerating unit where
it evaporates.
Keep the condensation channel
and drainage hole clean, so
that the condensation can run out.
