for an ambient temperature of
+10 to + 32° C
+16 to + 32° C
+18 to + 38° C
+18 to + 43° C
To prevent the appliance from heating up, ensure that an adequate ventilation gap
is retained and install a suitable thermal insulation panel. An adequate flow of air to
and from the cooling aggregate must be ensured.
The cooler needs air
The cooler door seals the installation unit almost completely, so an air vent is provided
in the base of the housing. Warmed air must be conducted via the ventilation shaft
to the rear wall of the housing and then expelled upwards. The ventilation channels
should measure at least 200 cm2 in cross-section.

After installing the unit, and particularly if the door hinge is reversed, please ensure
that the door seal is tight all round. An imperfect door seal can lead to increased
condensation and thus to higher energy consumption (see the section headed
Electrical connection
A properly installed socket outlet with earthing contact is required for electrical connection, positioned so that it is possible to pull out the mains plug.
The socket outlet with earthing contact used to connect the appliance should be
positioned on the left or right-hand side adjacent to the housing.
Electrical fuse protection of at least 10/16 amperes must be provided. If the socke
is no longer accessible once the appliance has been built-in, suitable measures
must be taken during electrical installation to ensure that the appliance can be disconnected from the mains (fuse, LP [line protection] contact opening width of at
least 3 mm).
Before operating the appliance, check the nameplate to ensure compliance of the
connection voltage and type of current with the mains network values at the installation site.

The cooler defrosts automatically.
The evaporator behind the rear wall of the cooler defrosts automatically. The condensate collects in the drainage channel behind the rear wall of the cooler, and flows
through the drainage hole into the drip tray by the compressor where it evaporates.
Cleaning and maintenance
For reasons of hygiene, the interior of the appliance, including all internal fitments,
should be cleaned regularly.
Warning! Because of the risk of electric shock, the appliance should not be connected to the mains during cleaning. Before cleaning, switch off the appliance, pull
out the mains plug or deactivate and/or remove the fuse.
Never steam-clean the appliance. Dampness may penetrate the electrical components, creating the risk of an electric shock. Hot steam may damage the plastic
components. The appliance must be dry before it is used again.
Caution! Plastic components may be attacked by essential oils and organic solvents such as fruit juices and the acids in butter, as well as by detergents containing
vinegar. Such substances should not come into contact with appliance components. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
Energy-saving tips
. Do not install the appliance near stoves, radiators, or any other sources of heat. If
the ambient temperature rises, the compressor operates more frequently and for
. Ensure that the appliance is adequately ventilated. Never cover air vents.
. Only open the door for as long as necessary.

Operating Noises
Noises which are entirely normal
The chill cabinet is cooled by a compressor (refrigeration aggregate). The compressor
pumps coolant through the cooling system, producing operating noises. Even when
the compressor cuts out, noises caused by changes in temperature and pressure
are unavoidable.
This cooler is fitted with a quiet compressor and a low-noise cooling circuit
designed in line with the latest technical developments. However, a certain
level of noise, dependent on the size of the cooler, is inevitable. Operating noise will
be most audible immediately after the compressor cuts in. It becomes quieter as the
operating period continues.
Noises which are not normal
Unusual noise is normally the result of improper installation. The cooler must be
installed or built-in so that it is level and stable. Under no circumstances must tubing
come into contact with a wall, other furniture or with another tubing.
Where coolers are installed in open-plan kitchens or in partition walls, the
level of operating noise will be heard more acutely. However, this is due to
the surrounding architecture and not to a fault with the cooler.
Cooling aggregate
Normal operating noise of the cooling
aggregate. The level is dependent on
the size of cooler.
Normal operating noise of the fan.
Cooling circuit
Normal operating noise as coolant
flows through the circuit.
Cooling circuit
Normal operating noise as coolant is
injected into the condenser.
Cooler housing
Normal as materials expand and
contract due to temperature variations
(e.g. plastics, isolation).
