We nevertheless feel that it is important to acquaint you with the following safety guidelines: Use for Intended Purpose * The freezer is intended for household use. It is suited for the freezing and frozen storage of foods as well as the preparation of ice. The manufacturer assumes no liability for damages occurring through improper operation or use of the appliance for unintended purposes. * Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons of safety. * |f you use the freezer in a commercial application or for purposes other than the freezing or frozen storage of foods, please observe all valid legal regulations for your application. Prior to initial start-up e 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. Refrigerant The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of environmen- tal 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. e 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 chil- dren. Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging materials away from children! * 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. 43 Safety 44 e 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 in the refrigerator/freezer. aero- sol cans, refill cartridges for cigarette lighters etc. 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, champa- gne 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 com- partment into the mouth. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or ton- gue and cause injury. Never touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the goods. Do not operate any electrical appliances i in the refrigerator/freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.). 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. * When unplugging always pull t the plug from the mains socket, do not pull on the cable. In case of malfunction * If a malfunction should occur at the appliance, refer first to the sec- tion What to do if...” in these operating instruction. If the instruc- tions in this section are not sufficient, do not undertake any further work on your own. e 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 depart- ment for repairs. Disposal Appliance Packaging Information All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped or bur- ned 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 chloro- fluorocarbon. The carton parts are made from recycled paper and should be disposed of at a waste-paper recycling collection location. Disposal of old Appliances /N 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 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. e [he refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of the appliance, may not be damaged. e Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall. 45 Appliance Transport Two persons are required for transport of the appliance. There are two recessed handles at the front of the base and at the back of the appliance at the top for improved gripping. Only for appliances with base cover: Pull cover up to remove. Grip the appliance with the recessed handles positioned as in the dra- wing, and transport the appliance. 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 casters and the appliance can be easily pushed. Remove transport safeguard The appliance as well as interior accessory parts are safeguarded for transport. LS” Remove tape from left and right of the outside of the door. i] Tape remnants can be removed with benzene. Wipe off benzene. I=" Remove all tape and pads from the interior of the appliance. ES” Peal off the protective film from the control panel, if existing. ES” Remove door seal safeguards from door seal at the inside of the door. US With open door remove transport safeguard at door pivot. 47 Installation Installation Location The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. The base- for freezers. on deal set-up locat Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.

If the appliance is installed under, for example, a hanging cabinet, a clearance of at least 10 cm between the top of the appliance and the cabinet above it must be maintained. —) TT E TT 5° Insert both wall spacers (packed with the door handle) into the sockets in the back of the appliance as shown in the diagram, so that the required clearance for air exhaust at the : back of the appliance is maintained. Appliance Alignment ES The appliance must have a solid, level footing. Please compensate for unevenness in the floor by turning the two adjustable feet at the front in or out. 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 instal- lation 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). 05" 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.: AC220...240V 50 Hz or 220 ... 240 V~ 50 Hz (i.e. 220 to 240 volts alternating current, 50 Hertz) The serial plate is inside the appliance at the left. Opening the door If the door is closed when the appliance is in operation, it cannot be immediately opened again, because a vacuum occurs which holds the door closed until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened again after several minutes. If your appliance is equipped with a QUICK door opener - an opening mechanism integra- ted into the door handle - the door can be opened easily at any time. Be sure that both catches (A) ШВ grip into the folds of the door a || > seal as shown in the drawing. Re-Hanging Door The side at which the door opens can be changed from the right side (factory adjustment) to the left side, if the installation site requires. /N Warning!

By closing the appliance door it is automatically switched off. i] If the appliance door remains open for more than 5 minutes, the interior illumination starts to blink and then switches off automatically in order to save energy. If directly after opening the door the interior illumination is not glowing although the appliance is in operation (recognisable through the green mains control indicator), the lamp is defective. Exchanging procedure is described in the chapter "Replace light bulb". Freezer tray A freezer tray is inserted at the very top of the freezer com partment at the back behind the freezer compartment flap. i Berries, for example, can be pre-frozen on the freezer tray. Advantage: The berries are not squeezed and maintain their natural form. The fro- zen berries can then be stored in compartments or drawers packaged in individual portions. Ice Packs (not included with all models) For some models two ice packs have been inserted into the freezer tray. Refer to the section "Prior to Initial Start-Up" concerning freezing of the ice packs. i] In the event of power failure or a malfunction at the appliance, the ice packs extend the period of time after which unacceptable warming of frozen goods occurs by several hours. Ice packs may also be used, in passing, in cold storage bags.

REFERENCE means: With temperature regulator freed from recessed position; temperature which should exist in the freezer compartment (REFERENCE tempera- ture), can be adjusted in increments of 1°C. ACTUAL means: With temperature regulator in recessed position; temperature display Indicates current actual freezer compartment temperature (ACTUAL temperature). 57 Appliance Description 58 Temperature Display °C The temperature display shows several types of information. © In normal operation the current freezer compartment temperature is displayed (actual temperature). The temperature regulator must be in its recessed position. * During temperature adjustment, a blinking display of the tempera- ture selected at the moment occurs (reference temperature). The temperature regulator must be freed from its recessed position. e During a mains power interruption a blinking display of the current freezer compartment temperature occurs (actual temperature). (not included with all models) * If, for example, the frozen goods were partially or completely thawed temporarily due to a lengthy power interruption, the temperature display alternately indicates: - the current freezer compartment temperature (actual temperature) and - the highest temperature to which the frozen goods have warmed. * |f a malfunction has occurred at the appliance the temperature dis- play alternately indicates: - the current freezer compartment tem perature (actual tem perature) and — an error message. The error message is coded (e.g. F1, F2, etc.) and assists the customer service technician in error diagnosis. If the temperature can no longer be registered, only the error code is displayed. FAST FREEZE Button X By pressing the FAST FREEZE button the FAST FREEZE e function is switched on. It speeds up freezing of fresh foods and, at the same time, protects already refrigerated goods against undesired warming. The appliance electronics automatically recognise when the FAST FREEZE function can be stopped, and switch it off automatically (after 30 to a maximum of 51 hours depending on amount to be frozen). The FAST FREEZE function can also be stopped manually at any time by pressing the FAST FREEZE button again. Prior to Initial Start-Up го” = Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial start-up (see section: "Cleaning and Care"). Remove both ice packs from the freezer tray, if they are included with your model. Place the ice packs into a compartment or drawer only after the opti- mal storage temperature of -18°C has been reached, and allow to freeze. After 24 hours place the ice packs at the front of the freezer tray. Re-freeze thawed ice packs in the same fashion, e.g. after cleaning the appliance. Initial Start-Up IZ" Insert plug into mains socket. IZ" Press ON/OFF button. The green stand-by display lights up. The tempe- rature display shows the current freezer compartment temperature (actual temperature). The blinking red warning display indicates that the required storage temperature has not yet been reached. Note: Within 5 minutes after the appliance has been switched on, the electronics initialise a self-test. The compressor does not start until after completion of the self-test. Set temperature to -18°C or colder (see section: "Temperature Adjust- ment"). Note: The factory setting for the temperature of the freezer compart- ment is -15°C. Do not load freezer with goods until the temperature has reached -18°C, or until the red warning display has gone out. 59 Temperature Adjustment I=" Press temperature regulator and free it from its recessed position. The temperature display Is switched to a blinking display of the currently selected reference temperature. ES” Turn temperature regulator to left or right to select the desired refe- rence temperature. The temperature display immediately indicates the newly selected adjustment: O O O Initial setting warmer colder (-18°C) (to -15°C) (to -24°C) Note: From a food sciences standpoint -18°C is considered to be a suf- ficiently cold storage temperature. U5" Push temperature regulator into its recessed position. The temperature display is switched back to indication of the current actual freezer compartment temperature. Important! Please check red warning display and temperature display regularly to assure maintenance of the storage temperature. Switching the Appliance Off In order to protect frozen goods, the appliance is guarded against acci- dental switching off (child-proof). IK” To switch off press and hold the ON/OFF button for about 5 seconds. A so-called "count down" is started in the temperature display, which counts backwards from "5" to "0". When "0" is reached the appliance switches off. Illumination at the temperature display goes off. Note (applies only to models with mains failure warning): If you remove the plug or disconnect the circuit fuse without pre- viously switching off the appliance with the ON/OFF button, an audible warning signal makes you aware of the power interruption. The warning signal can be temporarily silenced with the WARNING/OFF button, but it nevertheless sounds again after 2 hours. In this case, con- nect the appliance to the mains again and press and hold the ON/OFF button for about 5 seconds. If the appliance is to be removed from service for a lengthy period: US” Switch appliance off by pressing and holding the ON/OFF button for about 5 seconds. E” Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse. I=" Defrost freezer compartment and clean thoroughly (see section: "Cle- aning and Care"). ES” Leave door open after defrosting to avoid accumulation of odours. 62 Control and Information Systems The control and information systems consist of a temperature display, an optical warning display and an acoustic warning device. The system warns of: - open appliance door (not included with all models); - power interruption (not included with all models); - excessive temperature in the freezer compartment; - possible partial or complete thawing of frozen goods: - functional disturbances at the appliance. “Open Door"-Warning (not included with all models!) When the door is open the red warning display blinks. If the door remains open for more than 80 seconds, an audible warning also sounds. If you need more time for loading or rearranging frozen goods, you can switch off the audible warning by pressing the WARNING OFF button. Power Interruption (not included with all models!) If the power supply is interrupted, an audible warning sounds at 20 second intervals. In addition, the current actual temperature in the freezer compartment is indicated in blinking fashion by the tempera- ture display (2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). After one hour the audible warning only sounds at 40 second intervals. The audible warning can be switched off for about 2 hours with the WARNING OFF button. In the event of a power interruption, the control and information systems can maintain operation of the temperature display and warning signal for up to 12 hours. Temperature Warning The red warning display blinks and an audible warning sounds, as soon as the temperature in the freezer compartment climbs to more than 5°C above the selected reference temperature. A rise in temperature of more than 5°C may be caused by: - frequent door opening for long periods of time; - loading with large quantities of warm foods; — an error at the appliance. Control and Information Systems The audible warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF but- ton. Both warning display and audible warning are automatically switched off when the actual temperature in the freezer compartment falls to 4°C warmer than the selected reference temperature. Note: * The red warning display and the audible warning are inoperable: after temperature adjustment, until the selected reference tempera- ture has been reached (exception: actual temperature exceeds -10°C). e Only the audible warning is inoperable: — after the appliance is switched on, and until the selected reference temperature has been reached for the first time; - when the FAST FREEZE button is depressed. Partial/Complete Thaw Warning If frozen goods have been partially or completely thawed (e.g. during a temporary power interruption), the red warning display blinks. In addition the temperature display alternately indicates: - the highest temperature to which the frozen goods have warmed; - and the current actual temperature in the freezer compartment. If suspicion of partial or complete thawing exists, please check the qua- lity of the foods to determine if they can be used. As soon as the temperature in the freezer compartment has again fal- len below the critical thawing temperature of -4°C, the partial/com- plete thaw warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF button. Note: After the appliance has been switched on, the partial/complete thaw warning remains inoperative until the selected reference tempe- rature has been reached for the first time. Function Errors If the appliance electronics have detected a technical malfunction which has to be corrected by a customer service technician, both opti- cal and acoustic warnings are activated. In addition the temperature display alternately indicates: - an error message (error code F1, F2, etc.) and - the current freezer compartment temperature (actual temperature). Note: An appliance malfunction which is indicated by an error code, must be corrected by a customer service technician. The acoustic 63 warning can be switched off for 24 hours with the WARNING OFF but- ton. Cancelling of the error display is possible by switching the appliance off, which should however only be undertaken during repair by the customer service technician. Freezing &§ i Except for the bottom drawer, which serves for storage purposes, all compartments and drawers are suited for freezing. Attention! * Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer com- partment must be -18°C or colder. e Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the serial 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 serial plate. * Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time. For exploitation of maximum freezing capacity press the FAST FREEZE button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities. Yellow display lights up. 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 goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the goods. Place packaged foods in the compartments or drawers. Unfrozen goods may not come into contact with already frozen goods, otherwise the frozen goods may start to thaw. The appliance electronics recognise automatically when the FAST FREEZE function can be ended, and switch it off automatically. Yellow display goes out. You can also stop the FAST FREEZE function manually by pressing the FAST FREEZE button again. 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 suited for sealing bags and wraps: plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape. * Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air encoura- ges drying of frozen goods. * Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly. * 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. Frozen Storage Attention! 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. In so far as possible store frozen goods separately according to type in compartments and drawers. Some models are provided with index-tabs which can be attached to compartment doors and drawers. In order to identify the contents of individual compartments, attach the index- tabs so that they cover the storage goods symbols (see section: “Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar"). Thus you have a better overview, avoid opening the door for long periods and therefore save energy. 65 0d on Preparation of Ice Cubes ES” Fill ice cube tray (not included with all models) 3/4 full with cold water and place in the freezer tray or a drawer and allow to freeze. IZ" To remove the finished ice cubes twist the ice cube tray or hold under running water for a short time. Attention! 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 compart- ment flaps and drawers show different types of frozen © TU У 6-12 > goods. * [he numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indi- cated 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. e By attaching the included index-tabs to the compart- ment flaps and drawers, they can be marked according to which type of foods the indivi-. HD Y Y Y 6-12 I dual compartments contain. Maximum Load/Stacking Limit In order to load large quantities or bulky freezer items, you can remove the drawers (except for the bottom one) and place the freezer goods directly onto the evaporator grid. However, when the drawers are removed, the freezer = goods may not extend above the marking on the left side of the appliance interior. Ss << Defrosting Moisture is precipitated in the form of white frost during operation and when the door is open, especially on the evaporators. Remove this white frost from time to time with a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a dough scraper. Do not under any circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose. The appliance should be defrosted when the thickness of the white frost has reached about 4 mm; but at least once a year in any case. A convenient time for defrosting is any time when the appliance is empty, or only minimally loaded. Warning! * Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the excep- tion of those recommended in these operating instructions. * Do not use defrosting sprays, because they may be health endange- ring and/or contain substances damaging to plastics. US” If large quantities of frozen goods are in storage, press the FAST FREEZE button about 12 hours prior to defrosting, so that the frozen goods can build up a sufficient chill reserve. Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the goods. | Us” Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover them and store them in a cool place, e.g. in a refrigerator. US” Switch appliance off and remove plug from the mains, or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse. 67 I=" Remove all drawers except for the one at the bottom. The bottom dra- wer serves as a practical water collecting vessel. Tip: In order to speed up the defrosting process, place a pot of hot water in the appliance and close the door. Remove pieces of ice that break away before defrosting is complete. I=" After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as interior accessories (see section: "Cleaning and Care"). Cleaning and Care For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accesso- ries, should be cleaned regulariy. Warning! * The appliance may 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 accu- mulate 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. 5" Defrost the freezer compartment (see section: "Defrosting"). US Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and luke- warm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also be used. ES” After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry. Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption. For this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the appliance once a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner. After everything is dry place appliance back into service. Energy Saving Tips * Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources of warmth. 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. e Only leave door open as long as necessary. * Do not set temperature any colder than necessary. * Place frozen goods into the refrigerator for thawing. Cold from fro- zen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator. * Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean. 69 In Do not ich you ions. do not help , Wh ing instructi tructions Inor error ing ins f the followi Irs has been caused by a m th the help of the follow 1011$ lon IC Case, ing Malfunct Perhaps a malfunct attempt any further repa can correct yourself w each spec What to do if … Correct O > ое О = 5 5 BE - de cu a uo e > © © eS со < — © ‚шос = vc 3 : = Q ©.

Interior lllumination (not included with all models) ji If the appliance door remains open for more than 5 minutes, the Interior illumination starts to blink and then switches off automatically in order to save energy. If the interior illumination does not light when the door is open, alt- hough the temperature display is lit, the bulb is defective (see section: "Replace light bulb"). Replace light bulb (only for models with interior illumination) (A, DS” ES” = Warning! Danger of electrical shock! Before replacing the light bulb switch appliance off and remove the mains plug, or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse. Light bulb specifications: 220-240 V, max. 15 W, socket: E 14 To switch the appliance off press and hold both ON/OFF buttons for about 5 seconds. Remove mains plug. Replace defective light bulb. The light bulb is accessible from the back side of the lamp cover. Adjust door contacter (only for models with interior illumination) If, for example, the illumination is not automatically switched off when the door is closed, or if the "Open Door" warning signal sounds, the contacter at the top of the door may need to be readjusted. 73 IZ" Re-tighten phillips head screw. NS” Please check, IZ" Loosen phillips head screw and push contacter towards the inner side of the door. - if illumination is switched off when the door is closed and — If the audible warning signal sounds after the door has been open for about 80 seconds. If not, readjust contacter again. Customer Service 74 If you cannot find the remedy for a malfunction in these operating instructions, please contact your dealer or our customer service depart- ment. Addresses and telephone numbers are listed in the accompanying booklet "Guarantee Conditions/Customer Service Locations". Selective ordering of replacement parts can save unnecessary travel and costs. For this reason always provide the following appliance infor- mation: This information can be found on the serial plate in the interior at the * Model Name * Model Number (PNC) e Serial Number (S-No.) left of the appliance. We recommend that you enter this information here, so that it is handy if needed. If the temperature display should indicate an error (F1, F2, etc.), inform customer service of the displayed error. Note: The customer bears the costs of unjustified customer service calls even during the guarantee period. Noises during Operation The following noises are characteristic of refrigeration appliances: e Clicks Whenever the compressor switches on or off, a click can be heard. e Humming As soon as the compressor is in operation, you can hear it humming. * Bubbling/Splashing When refrigerant flows into thin tubes, you can hear bubbling or splashing noises. Even after the compressor has been switched off, this noise can be heard for a short time. Regulations, Standards, Guidelines This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured in accordance with the appropriate standards. The necessary measures in accordance with appliance safety legislation regulations (GSG), acci- dent prevention regulations for refrigeration appliances (VBG 20) and the regulations of the German Society of Electrical Engineers (VDE) were observed in the manufacture of this appliance. The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks. C This appliance is in accordance with the following EU guidelines: - 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines. - 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989 (including guideline change notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline 75 Technical Terminology * Refrigerant Fluids, which are used for refrigeration are called refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling point; so low, that the warmth of foods in the refrigeration appliance can cause them to boil or vaporise. ® Refrigerant circuit Sealed circulation system, in which the refrigerant is found. The refri- gerant circuit consists for the most part of an evaporator, a compres- sor, a condenser and tubing. ® Evaporator The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. This warmth is with- drawn from the appliance interior, which is thus cooled. Like all fluids, refrigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. For this reason the evaporator is located in the appliance interior. * Compressor The compressor looks like a small bin. It is powered by an electric motor and is housed at the back in the base of the appliance. It is the task of the compressor to withdraw vaporous refrigerant from the evaporator, to compress it and feed it to the condenser. e Condenser The condenser is usually in the form of a grid. Compressed refrigerant from the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. Thus warmth is released, which is given off into the surrounding air at the surface of the condenser. The condenser is therefore outside of the appliance, usually at the back.
