manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in
order to avoid a hazard.

climb inside.
Don't store

the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Grounding

In the event of an electric short circuit, grounding (earthing) reduces
the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. In order to prevent possible electric shock, this appliance
must be grounded. Improper use of the grounding plug can result in
an electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service person if
the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you
have doubts on whether the

appliance is properly grounded.
Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in
the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate
the defrosting process, other than those recommended by
the manufacturer.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage
compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the type
recommended by the manufacturer.
The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas used in the
appliance require special disposal procedures. When
disposal, please consult with service agent or a similarly
qualified person.
