Important Safety Instructions
• 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 fridge 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! Inform children
of the possible dangers and instruct them in the correct use of 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, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator.
• Warning - Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator (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

or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
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:

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.
• Only leave door open as long as necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.
18
818 36 92-01/4
Storage in the wine cooler
The temperature in the middle section of
the refrigerater is displayed by the
temperature indicator. The temperatures
in the top section are a little warmer, in
the bottom section a little colder. The
temperature differences in the top and
the bottom may be approx. 1 - 3 °C.,
depending on how many bottles are
stored in the fridge section, in which
places and how they are distributed. The
wines should be distributed on the
shelves according to their optimum
storage temperatures: Red wines in the
top section, rosé wines in the middle,
white wines in the bottom section.
Wines that are being stored for a long
period should normally be stored in the
bottom section.
Recommended storage temperatures:
Type of wine
Storage temperature
Red wine
+15 to +17 °C
Light red wine
+13 to +15 °C
Rosé wine
+10 to +12 °C
White wine
+8 to +10 °C
Champagne, sparkling wine
+6 to +8 °C
If need be, the shelves can be pulled out towards the front and inserted
into other levels.
To store opened bottles, the shelves can be inserted with the front in a
higher level. The angle created in this way prevents the bottles from
leaking.
1
Important! Do not bring bottles in contact with the back wall of the
appliance.
3
Take care when room temperature is low: the temperature in the wine
cooler can in the long term be no higher than the room temperature in
the place in which it is installed.
818 36 92-01/4
19
Storage tips:
• Store bottles horizontally so that the corks do not dry out.
• Store wine in the dark.
• Do not shake bottles. The location in which the wine cooler is
installed should be as vibration-free as possible,
• Ensure constant temperatures in the refrigerator.
• Follow the optimum storage temperature and storage periods for the
various types of wine.
Storage times for some wines:

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.
Defrosting
The Refrigerator is defrosted automatically
The electronics start the defrosting cycle in the refrigerator every time
the compressor stops.
The water collects in the discharge trough at the back wall of the
refrigerator, and is fed through the discharge opening in the catch tray
at the compressor where it is evaporated.

and 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.

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.
