Technical safety
This appliance contains a small
quantity of environmentallyfriendly but flammable R600a
refrigerant. 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.
Important information when
using the appliance
Never use electrical
appliances inside the
appliance (e.g. heater, electric
ice maker, etc.). Explosion
Never defrost or clean the
appliance with a steam
cleaner! The steam may
penetrate electrical parts and
cause a short-circuit. Risk
of electric shock!
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!
Do not stand on or lean
heavily against base
of appliance, drawers
or doors, etc
For defrosting and cleaning,

Room temperature,
ventilation and cavity
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 class
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.
The air on the rear panel of
the appliance heats up. Conduction of
the heated air must not be obstructed.
Otherwise, the refrigeration unit must
work harder. This increases power
consumption. Therefore: Never cover
or block the ventilation openings!
Cavity depth
A cavity depth of 560 mm
is recommended for the appliance.
If the cavity depth is smaller
– at least 550 mm – the energy
consumption increases slightly.
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.
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. .
m Warning
Never connect the appliance
to electronic energy saver plugs.
Our appliances can be used with mains
and sine-controlled inverters. Mainscontrolled inverters are used
for photovoltaic systems which
are connected directly to the national
grid. Sine-controlled inverters must be
used for isolated applications (e.g. on
ships or in mountain lodges) which are
not connected directly to the national

Usable capacity
Information on the usable capacity can

The refrigerator compartment is the ideal
storage location for ready meals, cakes
and pastries, preserved food, condensed
milk and hard cheese.
Storing food
Store fresh, undamaged food. The
quality and freshness will then
be retained for longer.
In the case of ready-made products
and bottled goods, observe the bestbefore date or use-by date specified
by the manufacturer.
To retain aroma, colour
and freshness, pack or cover food
well before placing in the appliance.
This will prevent the transfer
of flavours and the discolouration
of plastic parts in the refrigerator
Allow warm food and drinks to cool
down before placing in the appliance.

Super cooling
Super cooling sets the refrigerator
temperature to the coldest temperature
