1 Safety
The safety of our appliances is in accordance with recognised technological standards and appliance safety legislation. We nevertheless feel
that it is important to acquaint you with the following safety guidelines:
Use for Intended Purpose
• The appliance is intended for household use. It is suited for the refrigeration, freezing and frozen storage of foods as well as the preparation of ice.
• Alterations or changes to the appliance are not permitted for reasons
of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator/freezer in a commercial application or for
purposes other than the refrigeration, freezing or frozen storage of
foods, please observe all valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start-up
• Check the refrigerator/freezer for transport damage. Do not under
any circumstances connect a damaged appliance! Please contact your
supplier in the event of damage.
• Make sure that the power plug is not squashed or damaged by the
back of the fridge/freezer. A damaged power plug may overheat and
cause a fire.
• If the power plug socket is loose, do not insert the power plug. There
is a risk of electric shock or fire.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.
• Warning - During transportation and installation of the appliance,
be certain that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit
become damaged.
• If the refrigerant circuit should become damaged:
– avoid open flames and sources of ignition;
– thoroughly ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
Safety for Children
• Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for
children. Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging materials away from
children!
39
Safety
• Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable. Remove
plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy any snap
or latch closures. This eliminates the danger that playing children lock
themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place themselves into other life-endangering situations.
• Children often do not recognise the dangers involved with household
appliances. Please provide for the necessary supervision and do not
allow children to play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• Containers with flammable gases or fluids can develop leaks through
contact with the cold. Danger of explosion! Do not store containers
with flammable substances, such as aerosol cans, refill cartridges for
cigarette lighters etc. in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans may not be placed in the freezer compartment. They
can burst when the contents freeze - or even explode if the contents
contain carbonic acid! Never place sodas, juices, beer, wine, champagne etc. into the freezer compartment. Exception: Spirits with high
alcohol content may be stored in the freezer compartment.
• Do not place ice cream or ice cubes directly from the freezer compartment into the mouth. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Never touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the
goods.
• Warning - Do not operate any electrical appliances in the appliance
(e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.) unless they have been
authorised by the manufacturer.
• Warning - In order not to impair the function of the appliance, never
cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
• Warning - Do not use any mechanical devices or other artificial
means to speed up defrosting unless they are recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Before cleaning the appliance switch off and remove the plug from
the mains, or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
• Placing frozen goods on the top of the appliance can lead to the
accumulation of condensate in the cavity of the storage tray through
contact with the cold. Electronic components are housed within this
cavity. If condensate should drip onto these components, the
appliance could be damaged by a short circuit. For this reason do not
place frozen goods on top of the appliance.
40
Safety
• Do not remove the power cord by pulling on its lead, particularly
when the fridge/freezer is being pulled out of its niche. Damage to
the cord may cause a short circuit, fire and/or electric shock.
• Do not place heavy articles or the fridge/freezer itself on the power
cord. There is a risk of a short circuit and fire.
• If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a certified
service agent or qualified personnel.
In case of malfunction
• If a malfunction should occur at the appliance, refer first to the section "What to do if ..." in these operating instruction. If the instructions in this section are not sufficient, do not undertake any further
work on your own.
• Refrigerators/feezers may only be repaired by trained personnel.
Repairs carried out by untrained personnel can lead to substantial
danger. Please contact your dealer or our customer service department for repairs.
41
Environmental Information
Packaging
All transit packaging materials are environmentally compatible and can
be reused. Wood is un-treated. The plastics can be recycled and are
identified as follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in the
interior.
>PS< for polystyrene foam, e.g. the pads, which are pure hydrocarbon
compounds and can be recycled.
The carton parts are made from recycled paper. Please dispose of the
packaging with due care for the environment.
Old Appliances
For environmental reasons, refrigeration appliances must be disposed
of properly. This applies to your old appliance, and - at the end of its
service life - for your new appliance as well.
1
Warning! Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable.
Remove plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy any
snap or latch closures. This eliminates the danger that playing children
lock themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place
themselves into other life-endangering situations.
Disposal:
• The appliance may not be disposed of with domestic waste or bulky
refuse.
• The refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of
the appliance, may not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.
42
Appliance Transport
Two persons are required for transport of the appliance. There are two
recessed handles at the back of the appliance at the top for improved
gripping.
0 1. Grip the appliance with the recessed handles positioned as in the drawing, and transport the appliance.
2. In order to push the appliance into its final position, press carefully at
the top of the door and tip the appliance back slightly. The weight is
thus transferred to the back wheels and the appliance can be easily
pushed.
Before Use
Packaging
0 1. Remove all adhesive tape and packaging from the interior of the appli-
ance.
3
Any remnants of adhesive can be removed with white spirit.
2. Remove the transport protection pieces and pull off the adhesive tape.
43
Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be installed in a well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use and efficient performance of the appliance is affected by
the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore
– not be exposed to direct sunlight;
– not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
– only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature
corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is
designed.
The climate classification can be found on the rating plate, which is
located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for
each climate classification:
Climate classification
for an ambient temperature of
SN
+10 to +32 °C
N
+16 to +32 °C
ST
+18 to +38 °C
T
+18 to +43 °C
If installation next to a source of heat is unavoidable, the following
minimum clearances must be maintained at the sides of the appliance:
– for electric cookers 3 cm;
– for oil and coal fired ranges 30 cm.
If these clearances cannot be maintained a heat insulating pad is required between the cooker and the refrigeration appliance.
44
Installation
The refrigerator/freezer needs ventilation
Air is fed under the door through the
vent slots in the base and is
exhausted upwards along the back
wall. To ensure proper air circulation
never cover or alter the vent
openings.
Important! If the appliance is
installed under a hanging cabinet, a
clearance of at least 10 cm between
the top of the appliance and the
cabinet above it must be maintained.
Please check whether, after installing
your appliance and especially after
reversing the door, the door seal seals
tightly. A badly fitting door seal may
lead to heavy frosting and a higher
power consumption (see also
"Something not working“).
0 1. Remove the two wall spacers
from the appliance accessories
pack and insert them into the
heat exchanger bars (condenser)
located at the top of the rear of
the appliance as per the illustration, so that the distance between
the back of the appliance and the
wall that is required for correct
ventilation is ensured.
Appliance Alignment
0 1. The appliance must be level. Please compensate for unevenness in the
floor by turning the two adjustable feet at the front.
45
Electrical Connection
A properly installed socket outlet with earthing contact is required for
electrical connection. Electrical fuse protection must be of at least 10
ampere.
If the outlet socket is no longer accessible after installation of the
appliance, appropriate measures must be taken during electrical installation to assure that the appliance can be disconnected from the mains
(e.g. fuse, circuit breaker, non-operate current safety-switch or the like,
with a contact opening of at least 3 mm).
0 Before initial start-up, refer to the appliance rating plate to ascertain if
supply voltage and current values correspond with those of the mains
at the installation location.
e.g.:
AC 220 ... 240 V 50 Hz or
220 ... 240 V~50 Hz
(i.e. 220 to 240 volts alternating current, 50 Hertz)
The rating plate is inside the appliance at the left.
Warning: To avoid potential danger, if the mains connection lead of
this appliance is damaged, it must be replaced by our customer service
representative or a person with similar qualifications.
Warning: Under no circumstances should the appliance be connected
to electronic “power saving plugs” or to a.c.-d.c. converters which convert direct current to 230 V alternating current (e.g., solar installations,
ship networks)

No-Frost-System
The no-frost-system enables both the freezing of fresh foods and the
storage of ready frozen or cooled foods by means of cold air. A vaporiser cools the air in the interior space of the appliance, which is circulated and uniformly distributed by a ventilator. This uniformly
circulating air-flow provides for a dry climate, low temperature fluctuations and low temperature differences throughout the appliance's
interior space. The moisture in the air condenses as frost on the vaporiser. As soon as is necessary, the vaporiser defrosts fully automatically.
The melted water is drained off outside to the compressor and evaporates as a result of the heat generated there. This means that the interior of the appliance and the stored chilled or frozen foodstuffs always
remain free of frost and ice. Manual defrosting is not needed.

In the holiday mode the temperature for the refrigerator is approximately between +10 °C and +12 °C. In the holiday mode it is therefore
possible to leave the door of the empty refrigerator closed during periods of extended absence. Advantage: Unintentional closing of the door,
or accidental closing of the door by persons who have access to your
home during your absence, is no longer possible. Without the holiday
mode leaving the door closed would lead to the accumulation of
odours and mould.
After emptying and cleaning the appliance, proceed as follows:
0 1. To switch on the holiday mode, turn the temperature regulator for the
fridge to position H.
Important! Do not store any foodstuffs in the fridge when the holiday
mode is operating. The temperature when the holiday switch is on is
regulated to between approximately +10 °C and +12 °C. This is too
warm for foods.
Opening the Freezer Compartment Door
If the freezer compartment door is closed when the appliance is in
operation, it is possible that it cannot be immediately opened again. A
vacuum occurs in the freezer compartment which holds the door closed
until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened again after
several minutes.

Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves
The shelf in the lowest runners above the fruit and vegetable drawer is
stopped with plastic corners on the back. It must always remain in this
position, so that fruit and vegetables stay fresh for longer. To remove
the stops, the plastic corners must be twisted 90° forwards and to the
outside.
The remaining storage shelves can
be adjusted to various heights:
0 1. Pull the storage shelf forward until
it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
2. To insert at a different height use
the same procedure in reverse.
Bottle Rack
Place bottles in the rack with the
bottleneck to the front.
Important: Only store unopened
bottles horizontally.
The bottle rack can be tilted for
storing opened bottles.
0 1. To do this pull the bottle rack for-
ward until it can be tilted
upwards, then slide the front support into the next level up.
55
Interior Accessories
Fruit/Vegetable Drawer
(not offered in all models)
On some models there is a moisture filter in front of the shelf above the
fruit and vegetable compartments.
This preserves the natural moisture content of the food in the fruit and
vegetable compartments for longer.
FRESH Box
(not offered in all models)
The temperature in the FRESH Box is somewhat lower than in the rest
of the fridge. It is therefore especially suitable for storing meat, fish
and chilled meals. The FRESH Box can be pulled out, by lifting up the
front cover of the box.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
Bottle Holder
Some models are equipped with a
bottle holder in the bottle compartment. This is used to prevent
individual bottles from falling over
and can be slid sideways.
FRUIT-Box
Berries, for example, can be pre-frozen in the FRUIT Box. Advantage:
The berries are not squeezed and maintain their natural form. The
frozen berries can then be stored in compartments or drawers packaged
in individual portions.
56
Correct storage
The cooling fans ensure an even temperature distribution in the fridge.
Foods with different perishability can
therefore be arranged on the shelves as
you like, without having to take into
account the different temperature
zones which usually occur. The temperature in the fruit and vegetable drawer
is somewhat higher than the fridge
temperature set. The example arrangement opposite shows possible ways of
storing food.
Important! Do not place foods too
closely in front of the vents at the rear
of the appliance as the foods might
freeze.
Tip: Food stored in the refrigerator
compartment should always be covered
or packed so that they do not dry out,
lose their flavour, or transfer their
flavour to any other refrigerated food.
The following are suitable for packing:
– polyethylene bags;
– plastic containers with lids;
– special plastic covers with rubber retainers;
– aluminium foil.
57
Freezing
Warning!
• Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer
compartment must be -18 °C or colder.
• Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity represents the maximum amount of fresh goods
that can be frozen within 24 hours. If you freeze goods on several
days, one after the other, freeze amounts equal to 2/3 to 3/4 of the
capacity indicated on the rating plate.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
0 1. For freezing the maximum capacity press the FROSTMATIC button 24
hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities. Yellow
indicator lights up.
3
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities of up to 3 kg.
2. All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
3. Place packaged goods in the drawers. Unfrozen goods may not come
into contact with already frozen goods, otherwise the frozen goods
may start to thaw.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– plastic containers for frozen foods;
– extra-thick aluminium foil
• The following are suited for sealing bags and wraps:
plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.
• Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air
encourages drying of frozen goods.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
• Do not fill plastic containers for frozen foods to the brim with liquid
or paste-like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
Note for inspection authorities:
Batch plans for the determination of freezing performance or warm-up
time can be requested directly from the manufacturer.
58
Frozen Storage
Warning! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with
previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18 °C
must be reached.
• Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods can occur.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
goods.
2
When possible store frozen goods separately according to type in
drawers.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 1. Fill ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water and place in the freezer tray
or a drawer and allow to freeze.
2. To remove the finished ice cubes twist the ice cube tray or hold under
running water for a short time.
Warning! Do not, under any circumstances, free an ice tray which is
frozen to the appliance with pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a
spoon-handle or similar object.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar
(not included with all models)
• The symbols on the drawers
show different types of frozen
goods.
• The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate
types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and
pre-treating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with
high fat content.
59
Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT
the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply.
1
Warning!
• Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning
products, wax polishes or cleaning products containing bleach or
alcohol.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could accumulate in electrical components, danger of electrical shock! Hot
vapours can lead to the damage of plastic parts.
• The appliance must be dry before it is placed back into service.
Attention!
• Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e. g.
– lemon juice or the juice from orange peals;
– butyric acid;
– cleansers which contain acetic acid.
Do not allow such substances to come into contact with appliance
parts.
• Do not use any abrasive cleansers.
3
If the refrigerator only is to be cleaned, press the FROSTMATIC button
several hours in advance, in order to build up sufficient chill reserve in
the freezer compartment for the interruption in service. Do not open
the freezer compartment door.
0 1. About 12 hours prior to cleaning push the FROSTMATIC button, in order
to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in operation.
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
2. Remove stored and frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover them and store them in a cool place.
3. Switch off refrigerator and freezer and remove plug from the mains, or
switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or the fuse.
4. Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
5. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
6. Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
60

Energy Saving Advice
• Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a boiler,
dishwasher or radiator.
• Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure
that the air openings of the appliance are not obstructed.
• Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before
placing in the freezer.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the
door too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
• Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing
properly.
• Place frozen goods into the refrigerator for thawing. Cold from frozen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator.
• Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.

65
Technical Terminology
• Refrigerant
Liquids that can be used to a generate a cooling effect are known as
refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling-point, indeed so low,
that the warmth from the food stored in the fridge or freezer can
cause the refrigerant to boil and vaporise.
• Refrigerant Circuit
Closed circulation system that contains the refrigerant. The
refrigerant circuit comprises primarily of an evaporator, a compressor,
a condenser and pipe work.
• Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Similar to all other
liquids, refrigerant requires heat to evaporate. This heat is removed
from the interior of the appliance, as a result the interior is cooled.
The evaporator is therefore located inside the appliance or placed in
foam immediately behind the inner wall and thus not visible.
• Compressor
The compressor looks like a small drum. It is driven by a built-in
electric motor and is mounted on the base of the appliance at the
rear. The task of the compressor is to draw in vaporised refrigerant
from the evaporator, to compress it, and to pass it on to the
condenser.
• Condenser
The condenser normally has the form of a grid. The refrigerant
compressed in the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. During
this process, heat is released to the surrounding air at the surface of
the condenser. The condenser is mounted on the base of the
appliance.
