Important Safety Instructions
These warnings are provided in the interests of your safety. Ensure you fully understand them before
installing or using the appliance. Your safety is of paramount importance. If you are unsure about
the meaning of these warnings contact the Customer Care Department for assistance.
Intended use
• The freezer is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the freezing and storing frozen food, as
well as for making ice. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended or used incorrectly, no liability can be accepted by the manufacturer for any damage that may be caused.
• Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons of safety.
• If you use the freezer in a commercial application or for purposes other than the freezing or frozen
storage of foods, the manufacturer accepts no liability for any damages which may occur.
Prior to initial start–up
• Ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
Important: if the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by authorised service or qualified personnel using a special cable of the same type.
• Check the appliance for transport damage. Under no circumstance should a damaged appliance be
plugged in. In the event of damage, please contact your supplier.
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.
• 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 of children
• Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk of suffocation! Keep
packaging material away from children!
• Please make old appliances unusable prior to disposal. Pull out the mains plug, cut off the mains cable,
break or remove spring or bolt catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of suffocation!) or get themselves into other
dangerous situations.
• Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household appliances. It is therefore important
that you ensure adequate supervision and never let children play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as spray cans, fire extinguisher refill
cartridges etc in the appliance.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in
the freezer. Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after removal from the freezer. Very cold
ice can freeze to the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the food.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the house fuse or
switch off the circuit breaker.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
In case of malfunction
• If a malfunction occurs on the appliance, please look first in the "What to do if ..." section of these
instructions. If the information given there does not help, please do not perform any further repairs
yourself.
• Under no circumstance should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact our Customer Service.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be disposed of or burned at an incinerating plant
without danger.
About the materials: 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 all free of chlorofluorocarbon.
The carton parts are made from recycled paper and should be disposed of at a waste-paper recycling collection location.
Disposal of 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.
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 ensures that playing children do not lock
themselves inside 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, must not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be obtained from your local Council or
Environmental Health Office.
Remove transport packaging
☞
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
Pull off the adhesive tape on the left and right side of the door.
You can remove any remnants of adhesive using white spirit.
☞
Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the appliance.
Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up 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 serial plate, which is located at the left on the inside of
the appliance.
23
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 the refrigeration appliance is installed next to another refrigerator or freezer a clearance of 5 cm at
the sides is required, in order to prevent the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.

Electrical Connection
The plug socket necessary for connection of your appliance to the electricity supply should be positioned so that it is possible to pull out the appliance plug.
☞
A concealed protective contact plug socket requires 10 A/16 A fusing.
If the socket is not accessible, the electrical installation must include suitable means of isolating the
appliance from the mains (e.g. fuse, cut-out, current trip or similar with a minimum contact separation
of 3 mm).
Before initial start-up, refer to the appliance serial 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)

Ice packs
There are three ice packs in one drawer of the freezer.
Refer to the section “Prior to Initial Start–Up” concerning freezing of the ice pack.
In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice packs will lengthen the amount of time it takes
for the frozen food to defrost by several hours.
The ice packs can only fulfil this task optimally if they are placed in the uppermost drawer, at the front,
above the frozen food.
You can use the ice packs for cooling cold bags.
Prior to Initial Start–Up
☞
☞
☞
☞
Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial start-up (see section: “Cleaning and
Care”).
Remove the ice packs from the appliance.

Starting up and temperature regulation
☞
☞
☞
32
The temperature control knob can be used to set the required storage temperature, -18°C or colder.
The following effects are of significance in respect of the interior temperature:
– Ambient temperature;
– Quantity and temperature of the food stored;
– Frequency with which the door is opened and how long it is left open.
The following temperature settings can therefore only be considered as recommendations that may well
need to be adapted to suit your particular situation.
Setting “O” means:
refrigeration off.
Setting “1” means:
highest, warmest internal temperature
Setting “6” means:
lowest, coldest internal temperature
Recommended regulator setting:
3 to 4.
Press the ON/OFF switch. The green pilot light illuminates.
Turn the thermostat control knob to the desired setting with the aid of a coin. The compressor starts and
then runs automatically.
Additionally operate the fast-freeze switch. The yellow pilot light comes on, the audible warning switches
off, and the freezer motor runs continuously.
☞
Only when the red light (3) has gone out should you reset the fast freeze button, the amber light (2)
goes out and the audible warning is activated again.
Attention! Wait until the freezer compartment has reached a temperature of -18°C, or the red warning
light has gone out, before storing frozen food.
Important: Regularly check on the red temperature pilot light (3) and the thermometer that the required
storage temperature is being maintained.
Important note: if you operate the fast freeze button or adjust the temperature control knob, your
appliance’s refrigeration motor may not start immediately, but does after some time. This does not mean
that your appliance has a fault.
Freezing and storing frozen food
☞
☞
☞
☞
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18°C or colder before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum
quantity of fresh food that can be frozen within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the rating plate. The
quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause increased ice formation and
increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as spray cans, fire extinguisher refill
cartridges etc in the freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in
the freezer.
Press the fast freeze button for freezing of fresh food. The amber light illuminates.
To utilise the maximum rated freezing capacity, switch on the fast freeze switch 24 hours before freezing
is due to start (the amber light illuminates). For smaller amounts the fast freeze switch should be
switched on 4 - 6 hours in advance.
The fast freeze button need not be pressed for freezing of small quantities of up to 3 kg.
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 food with wet hands. Your hands could stick to the food and cause skin
abrasions.
Place the packed food in the drawers. Place food to be frozen in the appliance´s two top drawers (2) and
(3) equipped with their own refrigerating units. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost. Freezer drawers (4) and (5) should only be used for storage
of frozen food.
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.
Once the required storage temperate has been reached, press the fast freeze button again. The yellow
light goes out.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special cans for frozen goods;
– extra–thick aluminium foil.
• The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap: plastic clips, rubber bands or tape.
• Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for the frozen food to dry out.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
33
• Do not fill cans for frozen goods 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.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
☞
☞
Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer compartment and leave to freeze.
To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it under running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer compartment using pointed or sharp
edged objects. Use the ice scraper supplied.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar
• 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.
Defrosting
During use and when the door is opened, moisture is deposited as frost inside the appliance, particularly
on the evaporator. This frost must be removed from time to time using the soft plastic scraper supplied.
Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose.
The freezer should always be defrosted when the layer of frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres. Defrost should be carried out once a year regardless of the amount of frost that has built up. A
good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty or contains only a small amount of food.
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
34
Each temperature rise reduces the keeping qualities of your frozen food. Around 12 hours before defrosting your freezer, switch over to fast freeze mode to build up a low temperature reserve in the frozen
food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or artificial devices to speed up the
defrosting process.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, they can be hazardous to your health and/or contain substances that
damage plastics.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the food.
Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store it, covered, in a cool place.
Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
Remove all drawers. Insert the plastic scraper in the special location
to act as an extension channel and place underneath a basin to
collect the defrost water.
Tip: To speed up the defrosting process, place a pan with warm water
in the appliance and close the door. Remove pieces of ice that have
fallen before they completely defrost.
After defrosting, thoroughly clean the freezer compartment and interior fittings.
Cleaning and Care
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories, should be cleaned regularly.
Warning!
• The appliance must not be connected to the mains during cleaning. Danger of electrical shock! Before
cleaning switch the appliance off and remove the plug from the mains, or switch off or turn out the
circuit breaker or fuse.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could accumulate in electrical components
and there is a danger of an electric shock. Hot vapours can lead to the damage of plastic parts.
• The appliance must be dry before it is placed back into service.
Important!
• Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e.g.
– lemon juice or the juice from orange peel;
– 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.
Remove frozen food and wrap it in several layers of newspaper. Store it in a cool place, well covered.
Defrost the appliance prior to cleaning (see “Defrosting” section).
Switch off the appliance and unplug it.
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and lukewarm water. Commercially available
dish washing detergents may also be used.
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
To guarantee a safe operation of the fridge, once a year remove the ventilation grille at the base and
clean the air channels with a vacuum cleaner.
After everything is dry, switch to fast freeze. After running the appliance for two or three hours, it is
ready again for storing frozen food.
Magnetic door seal
After opening and closing the door of your freezer you will not be able to open the door again immediately. This is because a vacuum will have developed inside, keeping the door closed until the pressures
inside and outside the door have equalised. After a few minutes you can easily reopen the door.

Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near boilers, radiators or other sources of heat. High ambient temperatures
cause longer, more frequent operation of the compressor.
• Ensure sufficient air circulation and exhaust at the appliance base and at the back wall of the appliance. Never cover air vent openings.
• Do not place warm foods into the appliance. Allow warm foods to cool first.
• Do not leave the door open any longer than necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food will then be used to cool the
fridge.

The following noises are characteristic of refrigeration appliances:
• Clicks
Whenever the compressor switches on or off, a click can be heard.
• Humming As soon as the compressor is in operation, you can hear it humming.
• Bubbling/ When refrigerant flows into thin tubes, you can hear bubbling or splashing noises. Even
Splashing after the compressor has been switched off, this noise can be heard for a short time.

Technical terminology
38
• 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.
