5.2 Door alarm
For the fridge and freezer compartments
An audible warning sounds if the door is open for
longer than 60 seconds.
The audible warning stops automatically when the
door is closed.
5.2.1 Muting the door alarm
The audible alarm can be muted when the door is open. The
sound switch-off function is active as long as the door is left
open.
u Press alarm button Fig. 2 (15).
w The door alarm is silenced.
5.3 Temperature alarm
The audible alarm sounds if the freezer temperature
is not cold enough.
The temperature display and the alarm symbol
Fig. 2 (16) flash at the same time.
The cause of the temperature being too high may be:
- warm fresh food was placed inside
- too much warm ambient air flowed in when rearranging and
removing food
- power failure for some time
- the appliance is faulty
The audible alarm is automatically silenced, the alarm symbol
Fig. 2 (16) goes out and the temperature display stops flashing
when the temperature is sufficiently cold again.
If the alarm status persists: (see Malfunction).
Note
Food may be spoilt if the temperature is not cold enough.
u Check the quality of the food. Do not consume spoiled food.
5.3.1 Muting the temperature alarm
The audible alarm can be muted. When the temperature is
sufficiently cold again, the alarm function is active again.
u Press alarm button Fig. 2 (15).
w The audible alarm is silenced.
5.4 Refrigerator compartment
The natural circulation of air in the refrigerator compartment
results in zones differing in temperature. It is coldest directly
above the vegetable drawers and at the rear wall. It is warmest
at the top front of the compartment and in the door.

Control
5.4.1 Food refrigeration
Note
The energy consumption increases and the cooling performance decreases if the ventilation is inadequate.
u Always keep the air slits of the fan free.
u Store perishable food such as ready-to-serve dishes, meat
products and sausages in the coldest zone. Place butter and
preserves in the upper area and in the door (see Appliance
at a glance).
u Use recyclable plastic, metal, aluminium and glass
containers and cling film for wrapping.
u Always store liquids and food which is subject to odour or
taste transfer in closed containers or cover them.
u Foods which give off a large amount of ethylene gas and
delicate foods, such as fruit, vegetables, salad, should
always be stored separately or wrapped so as not to reduce
the storage life; e.g. do not store tomatoes together with
kiwis or cabbage.
u Use the front area of the refrigerator compartment floor only
for briefly putting down cooled products, e.g. when rearranging and sorting. However do not leave cooled products
there otherwise they may be pushed back or tipped over
when the door is closed.
u Do not store food too close together to enable good air
circulation.
5.4.2 Setting the temperature
The temperature depends on the following factors:
- the frequency of opening the door
- the room temperature of the installation location
- the type, temperature and quantity of the food
The temperature can be set from 9 °C to 1 °C, the recommended temperature is 5 °C.
u For a higher temperature setting: press Up button, refrigerator compartment Fig. 2 (3).
u For a lower temperature setting: press Down button, refrigerator compartment Fig. 2 (4).
w When the button is pressed for the first time, the previously
set value is indicated, flashing, in the refrigerator compartment temperature display.
u To change the temperature in 1 °C steps: briefly press the
button.
u To change the temperature continuously: hold down the
button.
w The value is displayed flashing during the setting operation.
w The actual temperature is displayed about 5 s after the last
press of a button. The temperature slowly adjusts to the new
value.
To prematurely deactivate SuperCool
u Briefly press SuperCool button Fig. 2 (7).
w The SuperCool symbol Fig. 2 (8) goes out in the display.
w SuperCool is deactivated.

5.4.5 Using the sectioned shelf
u Slide the sectioned shelf
under, as shown in the
illustration.
5.4.3 SuperCool
With SuperCool you switch to the highest cooling
performance to reach lower cooling temperatures.
Use SuperCool, to rapidly cool large amounts of
food.
When SuperCool is activated, the fan* may run. The appliance
operates with maximum cooling performance, which means
that the noise of the refrigeration unit may be temporarily
louder.
The SuperCool function uses slightly more energy.

maximum refrigeration. The noise of the refrigeration
unit may be temporarily louder as a result.
The maximum amount of fresh food which can be frozen in 24 h
is indicated on the type plate under “freezing capacity ... kg/
24h”. This amount varies according to the model and climate
rating.
You have to activate SuperFrost in good time, depending on
how much fresh food is to be frozen: about 6 hours before
placing the food inside in case of small amounts and about 24
hours in advance in case of the maximum amount of food to be
frozen.
Wrap produce and spread it out as far as possible. Do not allow
produce to be frozen to touch produce that is already frozen to
prevent the latter thawing.
You do not have to activate SuperFrost in the following cases:
- when placing frozen food in the freezer
- when freezing up to approx. 2 kg fresh food daily
Freezing with SuperFrost

The IceMaker produces ice cubes using the water container
located in the refrigerator compartment. The water container
can also be used to provide chilled drinking water.
The IceMaker is in the top drawer of the freezer compartment.
The drawer is marked “IceMaker”.
Make certain that the following conditions are met:
- The appliance is level.
- The appliance is connected.
- The freezer compartment is switched on.
- The water tank was cleaned with water and is filled.

Control
Switching on the IceMaker
Note
The use of filtered, de-carbonated water ensures the supply of
drinking water with top quality flavour for problem-free ice cube
production.
You can achieve this water quality by using a table-top water
filter available from specialist shops.
u Use only filtered, de-carbonated water to fill the water tank.
Fig. 13
u Pull out the drawer.
u Press the On/Off button Fig. 13 (1) so that the LED
Fig. 13 (2) shines.
u Push in the drawer.
w The IceMaker symbol Fig. 2 (19) shines.
Note
u The IceMaker produces ice cubes only if the drawer is fully
closed.
Producing ice cubes
The production capacity depends on the freezer temperature.
The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes can be
produced in a specific period.
The ice cubes drop from the IceMaker into the drawer. When a
certain filling level has been reached, no further ice cubes are
produced. The IceMaker does not fill the drawer right up to the
brim.
Distribute the ice cubes evenly in the drawer to increase the
capacity.
If large quantities of ice cubes are needed, the complete
IceMaker drawer can be exchanged for the adjacent drawer.
When the drawer is closed, the IceMaker automatically recommences production.
Once the IceMaker has been switched on for the first time, it
may take up to 24 hours until the first ice cubes are produced.
Note
When the appliance is used for the first time and if it has been
out of use for a long time, particles may collect in the IceMaker
and/or water conduit.
u Do not use or consume ice cubes that have been made 24
hours after the first ice cubes are made.
Filling the water tank
WARNING
Risk of poisoning!
u The water quality must comply with the drinking water regulations of the respective country in which the appliance is
operating (e.g. 98/83/EC, NSF 61).
u Only fill with drinking water.
u The IceMaker is solely intended to produce ice cubes in
quantities customary for household use and must be operated using water appropriate for this purpose.
u If the IceMaker is switched off or not used for a longer period
of time, empty the water tank.
NOTICE
Risk of damage to the IceMaker!
Liquids containing sugar, such as soft drinks, fruit juices or
similar, gum up the pump and therefore lead to total pump
failure and, as a consequence, to damage to the IceMaker.
u Fill the water tank with cold drinking water only! Do not use
liquids containing sugar, such as soft drinks, fruit juices or
similar!
10
The IceMaker is supplied with water from a water tank in the
refrigerator compartment (see Appliance at a glance).
When the water tank is empty, the water tank symbol () shines.
Before initial operation:
u clean the water tank thoroughly with water to remove any
dust etc.
Fig. 14
u Pull the water tank forwards.
u Remove cover and fill tank with water.
