your appliance must have a volume of 1 m3 per 8 g of R 600a
refrigerant used in the appliance, so as to avoid the formation
of inflammable gas/air mixtures in the room where the appliance is located in the event of a leak in the refrigerant circuit.
The quantity of refrigerant used in your appliance is indicated
on the type plate on the inside of the appliance.

You may be able to rectify the following faults by checking
the possible causes yourself:
Air exchange with activated charcoal filter
The way in which wines continue to mature depends on the ambient
conditions. The quality of the air is therefore decisive for preserving the wine. An activated
charcoal filter has been fitted in the lower area of the
rear wall of the appliance to
ensure that the air throughput remains at an optimum
quality. We recommend that
you replace the filter once a
year. Filters can be obtained
from your dealer.
Changing the filter:
Take the filter by the handle.
Turn it 90° to the left or right
and remove.
Inserting the filter:
Insert with the handle in
a vertical position. Turn it
90° to the left or right until
it clicks into place.
Appliance does not function:
– Is the appliance switched on?
– Is the plug correctly fitted in the mains socket?
– Is the socket fuse intact?
Loud running noise:
– Is the appliance set up firmly on the floor?
– Does the appliance cause nearby items of furniture or objects
to vibrate? Please note that noises caused by the refrigerant
circuit cannot be avoided.
The temperature is not low enough:
– Is the temperature setting correct (see "Setting the temperature")?
– Does the separately installed thermometer show the correct
– Is the ventilation system working properly?
– Is the appliance set up too close to a heat source?
If none of the above causes
apply and you cannot rectify
the fault yourself, contact the
nearest customer service department stating the type of
appliance ➊, service number
➋ and appliance number ➌ as
indicated on the type plate.
Shutting your appliance down
Bottle holders
Bottles on the pull-out shelf can
