Disposal notes
Climate rating
The climate rating indicates the room temperature at which the appliance may be
operated in order to achieve full refrigeration
The appliance contains reusable materials and should
be disposed of properly - not simply with unsorted
household refuse. Appliances which are no longer
needed must be disposed of in a professional and
appropriate way, in accordance with the current local
regulations and laws.
When disposing of the appliance, ensure that the refrigerant circuit
is not damaged to prevent uncontrolled escape of the refrigerant
it contains (data on type plate) and oil.
• Disable the appliance.
• Pull out the mains plug.
• Cut through the connection cable.
Danger of suffocation due to packing material and plastic film!
Do not allow children to play with packaging material. Take the
packaging material to an official collection point.
The climate rating is indicated on the type

Range of appliance use
The appliance is suitable solely for storing wine in a domestic
environment or similar. This includes, for example, use
- in staff kitchenettes, bed and breakfast establishments,
- by guests in cottages, hotels, motels and other forms of accommodation,
- in catering and similar services in the wholesale trade.
Use the appliance solely as is customary within a domestic environment. All other types of use are inadmissible. The appliance
is not suitable for storing and cooling medicines, blood plasma,
laboratory preparations or similar substances and products covered by the 2007/47/EC Medical Devices Directive. Any misuse
of the appliance may result in damage to or spoilage of stored
goods. Furthermore, the appliance is not suitable for operation in
potentially explosive atmospheres.
Saving energy
- Always ensure good ventilation. Do not cover ventilation openings
or grille.
- Always keep fan louvres clear.
- Do not place appliance in areas of direct sunlight or next to a
stove, heater or similar object.
- The energy consumption depends on the installation conditions,
e.g. the ambient temperature.
- Keep the time the appliance is open to a minimum.
Accumulated dust increases the energy consumption:
- Once a year, dust the refrigerating unit together with the metal
grille of the heat exchanger at the back of the appliance.

temperature will be displayed.
Storing wine
If you are storing wine for long periods of time, it should be stored
at a temperature of between 10°C and 14°C.
This is the temperature wine cellars are kept at, and it is just right
to allow wine to mature properly.
The following drinking temperatures are recommended for the
various types of wine.
Red wines: +14°C to +18°C
Rosé wines: +10°C to +12°C
White wines: +8°C to +12°C
Sparkling wines, Prosecco +7°C to +9°C
Champagne +5°C to +7°C
Temperature alarm
If the temperatures in the interior are out of the permitted range, the audible warning signal will sound and
the temperature display will flash.
After a lengthy power failure, the temperature in the
interior may have risen to too high a level. After the
power supply returns, the fall in temperature can be
watched on the display.
• Cancel the audible warning signal by pressing the Alarm button.
The temperature display will stop flashing as soon as the temperature in the interior has reached the set value.
Temperature alarm after a fault in the appliance
If the appliance develops a fault, the temperature in the interior
may rise too high or fall too low. The audible warning signal will
sound and the temperature display will flash.
If the temperature displayed is too high (warm), first check whether
the door is closed correctly.
If the temperature display continues to show a value that is too high
or too low after one hour, contact the customer service department.
• Cancel the audible warning signal by pressing the Alarm button.
If F1 appears in the display, the appliance has suffered a fault. In
this case, contact the customer service department.
The interior fan ensures a constant and even interior temperature
and a suitable climate for wine storage.
When activating the Ventilation button, the humidity in the appliance is further increased, which has
a particularly positive effect for long-term storage.
The increased level of humidity prevents the corks from drying out.
If the appliance is operated in a low ambient temperature, the fan
may also run when the fan function is deactivated.

–The appliance has suffered a fault. Contact the customer service
You may be able to rectify the following faults by checking the
possible causes yourself.
• Appliance does not function
–Is the appliance switched on?
–Is the plug correctly fitted in the mains socket?
–Is the socket fuse intact?
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.
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
Inserting the filter:
Insert with the handle in a vertical
position. Turn it 90° to the left or
right until it clicks into place.
• When inserting the mains plug, the refrigeration unit does not
switch on, but a value is shown in the temperature display.
–Demo mode is activated. Deactivate demo mode as described in
the section entitled Additional functions - Demo mode.
• Loud running noise
–Is the appliance set up firmly on the floor?
–Does the appliance cause nearby items of furniture or objects to
vibrate? Ensure that the appliance is stable and that all parts at
the back can vibrate freely.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 reading?
– 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 1, service number
2and appliance number 3as
indicated on the type plate.
