1 Important
Safety Instructions
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 use at home. Depending on the preset
operation mode, this appliance becomes suitable for cooling,
freezing, for frozen storage of foods or for ice preparation. The
manufacturer assumes no liability for damages occurring through
improper operation or use of the appliance for unintended purposes.
• Alterations or changes to the appliance are not permitted for reasons
of safety.
• If you should use this appliance in a commercial application or for
purposes other than cooling, freezing, or frozen storage of foods,
please observe all valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start-up
• Check the appliance 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 appliance. 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.

Important Safety Instructions
Safety for Children
• Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for
children. 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.
• 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! Inform children of the possible dangers and instruct them in the correct use of 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 appliance.
• 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. Inform children of this danger.
• 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.).
• Warning - Do not cover or obstruct the ventilation openings as this
will impair the operation of the appliance.
• 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 condensation on the top panel through contact with
54
818 36 47-00/0
the cold. Electronic components are housed within this top panel. If
water 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.
• Do not remove the power cord by pulling on its lead, particularly
when the appliance 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 appliance 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 or 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.

58
818 36 47-00/0
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.
818 36 47-00/0
59
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 "What to
do if ...“).
Remove the two wall spacers from
the appliance accessories pack and,
in accordance with the illustrations,
fix them at the top of the rear of the
appliance so that the distance from
the wall required for the necessary
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.
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).
60
818 36 47-00/0
Installation
0 1. 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)
Carbon filter
There is a active carbon filter in the rear wall of the fridge section. The
carbon filter cleans the air in the fridge section and in the LONGFRESH
0°C cold section by binding unpleasant smells.
Tip: The active carbon filter is a part subject to wear and is not covered
by the warranty.
Inserting and changing the active carbon filter:
When the fridge is delivered, the carbon filter is packed in a plastic bag
to ensure a long life. Before using the appliance for the first time, the
carbon filter must be inserted behind the air discharge grill.
With the fridge operating normally, the
carbon filter should be changed once a year
to ensure optimum function.
New carbon filters can be obtained from
specialist dealers or from the customer care
department.

818 36 47-00/0
Appliance Description
Freezer tray
A freezer tray is included below the
upper drawer in the freezer
compartment.
Berries and vegetables, for example,
can be pre-frozen on the freezer tray.
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.
Cold Accumulation Block
A cold accumulation block is enclosed with the appliance.
3
In the event of power failure or a malfunction of the appliance, the
cold accumulation block will increase the hold over period by several
hours. The cold accumulation block cools best if it is placed in the top
drawer at the front on the frozen food. If the freezer section is only
partially filled, pack the frozen food together as tightly as possible, so
that in the event of a power cut the cold remains in the frozen food for
longer.
When freezing food, place the cold accumulation block on the already
frozen food to prevent defrosting due to the warmth of the food that is
being frozen.
When defrosting the appliance place the cold accumulation block on
top of the frozen food to keep it cold.
The block may also be used in a cool bag to keep the temperature of
food down during transportation.

Prior to Initial Start-Up
1
Before connecting the appliance to the mains and putting it into operation for the first time, leave the appliance to stand for 30 minutes if
was transported upright. After transport on its side, the appliance must
be left to stand for 2 hours before putting it into operation. This is
necessary to allow the oil to flow back into the compressor. Otherwise
the compressor may be damaged.
0 1. Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial
start-up (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
2. The appliance must be correctly installed in accordance with the chapter "Installation" before it is put into operation for the first time. Care
should be especially taken that the mains voltage and frequency available correspond with the appliance’s rating plate.
3. Remove the cold accumulation block from the appliance.
4. Place the cold accumulation block into a drawer only after the optimal
storage temperature of -18 °C has been reached, and allow to freeze.
5. After 24 hours place the cold accumulation block at the front of the
upper drawer.
6. Re-freeze the thawed cold accumulation block in the same fashion, e.g.
after cleaning the appliance.
Initial Start-Up
0 1. Insert plug into mains socket.
2. Press the ON/OFF button.
The green power indicator lights up. A warning tone sounds and the
flashing red warning light indicates that the required storage temperature has not yet been reached. The temperature displays shows the current, actual refrigerator and freezer temperature. The compressor will
start and then run automatically.
3. Press the ALARM OFF button to switch off the warning tone.
4. Set the refrigerator to the desired temperature (see section: "Temperature Adjustment").
3
Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on,
because the storage temperature in the refrigerator is quickly reached.
5. Set the freezer temperature to -18 °C or colder (see section: "Temperature Adjustment").
3
70
Do not load freezer with goods until a temperature of -18 °C has been
reached, or until the red warning indicator light has gone out.
818 36 47-00/0
Temperature Adjustment
With the individual temperature setting buttons the desired
temperatures in the refrigerator and in the freezer compartment can be
adjusted independently of one another.
3
In the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone the temperature is automatically
controlled. It remains constant at about 0 °C, no setting is required.
Note: Your appliance is equipped with a dynamic circulating air cooling
function. To adapt the refrigerating capacity required in the fridge zone
and the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone in a optimum manner, the fan is
operated at different powers. Because of this, different fan noises are
discernable due to the length of time it is switched on and the speed.
This is normal - there is no malfunction or defect.
0 1. Press either the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button for the refrigerator or freezer compartment .
The temperature display switches over and the DESIRED temperature
currently set flashes on the temperature display.
2. To adjust to a warmer temperature, press the „+“ (WARMER) button. To
adjust to a colder temperature, press the „-“ (COLDER) button. The
changed setting is immediately displayed on the temperature display.
Each time the button is pressed the temperature is adjusted by 1 °C.
Adjustable temperature range for the freezer compartment:
-15 °C to -24 °C.
Adjustable temperature range for the refrigerator compartment:
+3 °C to +8 °C, +15 °C (Holiday mode)
3
Note: From a food science point of view, +5 °C for the refrigerator
compartment and -18 °C for the freezer compartment should be considered cold enough as a storage temperature.
3. When the buttons are not further pressed after an adjustment has been
made, after a short period (approx. 5 sec.) the temperature display
switches over and again displays the ACTUAL temperature in the refrigerator compartment. The display changes from flashing to illuminated
numbers.
3
When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place.
Important! Please check red warning indicator light and temperature
display regularly to assure maintenance of the storage temperature.

Control and Information Systems
The control and information systems consist of a temperature display,
an optical warning indicator light and an acoustic warning.
The system warns if:
– when first switching on the appliance (when the storage temperature
has not yet been attained);
– when the appliance doors are open
– the temperature in the refrigerator or freezer compartment is too
high;
– functional disturbances at the appliance.
"Open Door"-Warning
If the fridge or freezer door is left open the red warning indicator light
will flash and an acoustic warning tone will sound

soon as the temperature in the freezer rises to more than -11 °C. In
addition the freezer temperature display flashes.
0 1. You can switch off the warning tone using the ALARM OFF button.
The freezer temperature display stops flashing and displays the warmest temperature that has been reached in the freezer during the temperature alarm. After approx. 5 seconds the temperature display reverts
to the current freezer temperature.
3
The warning tone switches itself off automatically if the temperature in
the freezer falls to lower than -11 °C. The red warning indicator light
and the temperature display continue to flash.
If the possibility of partial or complete thawing exists, you should
check the quality of the foods.
A rise in temperature may be caused by:
– frequent door opening for long periods of time;
– loading with large quantities of warm foods;
– high ambient temperature;
– an error with the appliance.
Function Errors
If the electronics in the appliance detects a technical defect that has to
be rectified by the customer, the temperature display indicates:
– a square or a letter in the temperature display of the fridge for a fault
in the fridge,
– a square or a letter in the temperature display of the freezer for a
fault in the freezer.
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.

Storage Shelves
The 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.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section
The LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section consists of two drawers, which are
fitted with sliding regulators to adjust the air humidity.
In the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section the temperature is automatically
controlled. It remains constant at about 0 °C, no setting is required.
The low storage temperature of around 0 °C and the air moisture that
can be regulated result in optimum storage conditions for various
foodstuffs.
Compared to the normal fridge zone, fresh food can be stored in the
LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section for longer while keeping the same
quality.
High levels of taste and freshness, vitamins and minerals are retained.
Weight loss in fruit and vegetables is reduced. Nutrition levels in your
food are higher as a result.
3
The LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section is also suitable for slowly defrosting
frozen food. If you do this, the defrosted food can be kept in the
LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section for up to two days.
818 36 47-00/0
77
Interior Accessories
Setting the air moisture
The two drawers can be used independently of one another with higher
or lower air moisture according to the storage conditions required.
The air moisture can be set with the aid of the slide control on the front
of each drawer.
• Dry: a low relative air moisture is obtained when both controls are
slid to position c, i.e. the air holes are fully opened.
• Moist: a high relative air moisture is obtained when both controls are
slid to position a, i.e. the air holes are fully closed.
The air moisture in the drawers depends upon the moisture content of
the food stored and upon how often the door is opened.
Quick Chill Shelf
The quick chill shelf can be placed
in one of the upper grooves. To
maintain the best performance the
shelf should be placed in the
second groove from the top.
Bottle- and Can Holder
The side of the bottle- and can
holder is moveable to enable a
more flexible placement of cans
and bottles in front of the air discharge grill. To allow the holder to
be moved easier when moving
sideways, press the shelf backwards.
The bottle support can be pulled
out when chilling larger bottles.

Correct storage
A fan provides for quick cooling of the
food and an even temperature
distribution in the fridge zone and in the
LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section.
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 arrangement (see
fig.) indicates possible ways of storing
food.
In order to check the temperature on the
shelves you can carry out the following
test yourself:
0 1. Place a cup of water in the centre of the
said shelf with a thermometer inside.
2. Leave the fridge door closed overnight
and check the temperature first thing in
the morning.
3. At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does,
you need to adjust the temperature regulator to a colder setting.
• 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.
Food that is sensitive to cold temperatures should not be stored in the
LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section:
• citrus and tropical fruits, such as pineapples, bananas, grapefruits,
melons, mangoes, papayas, oranges, lemons, kiwi fruit.
• hard cheese, potatoes, vegetables that are sensitive to cold
temperatures such as cucumbers, peppers, aubergines, avocados, half
ripe tomatoes, beans, courgettes.

Tips:
• When shopping always look for the freshest foods. Quality and
freshness are crucial to how long food can be kept.
• Always store meat and fish wrapped and dry.
• Foodstuffs rich in protein spoil more quickly: Shellfish and
crustaceans go off more quickly than fish and fish in turn goes off
more quickly than meat. By storing them in the 0°C section, the
storage period even for these foodstuffs can be increased by up to 3
times without loss of quality.
• All food that is stored in the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section should be
removed from the drawers approx. 15 - 30 minutes before
consumption. Aroma and taste develop at room temperature and the
enjoyment of the food is increased.
To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator/freezer:
• Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your
freezer as short as possible.
• Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate
around each item.
82
818 36 47-00/0
Freezing
Except for the bottom drawer, which serves only for storage purposes,
all compartments and drawers in the freezer compartment are suitable
for freezing fresh food.
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.
• When freezing large quantities of food, place the frozen freezing
accumulator at the front into the top compartment in the freezing
chamber.
• 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.
3
The appliance electronics automatically switch the FROSTMATIC function off after a period of approx. 50 hours. Yellow indicator light goes
out. You can also stop the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing
the FROSTMATIC button again.
818 36 47-00/0
83
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.
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.
• If the freezer section is only half filled, pack the frozen food together
as tightly as possible. This ensures that the cold is retained in the
frozen food for longer in the event of a power cut.
2
When possible store frozen goods separately according to type in
drawers.
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.
84
818 36 47-00/0
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.

Energy Saving Advice
• Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker,
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.
818 36 47-00/0
85
Defrosting
Fridge zone and LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone
Fridge section and LONGFRESH 0 °C cold section defrost automatically.
The defrosted water is fed into the drip tray on the compressor and
evaporated there.
Freezer Compartment Defrosting
Moisture is precipitated in the form of white frost in the freezer
compartment during operation and when the door is opened, especially
in the middle at the top. 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.
1
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the
exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, because they may be health
endangering and/or contain substances damaging to plastics.
0 1. About 12 hours prior to defrosting 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 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
disconnect from the electricity supply.
86
818 36 47-00/0
4. Remove all the drawers. Place the
bottom drawer directly in front of
the appliance to collect the water
from defrosting. Take out the
water drain spout from its resting
position at the bottom of the
freezer compartment and place it
as shown.
Tip: In order to speed up the
defrosting process, place a pot of warm water in the freezer
compartment. In addition, remove pieces of ice that break away before
defrosting is complete.
5. After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as interior
accessories (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").
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;

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.
