In the interests of children's safety:
When disposing of the refrigerator, remove all doors and leave the
shelves inside. This prevents children from being accidentally trapped or
suffocated in the refrigerator.
Never open the cooling unit - it is under high pressure.
Never store explosive substances, such as lighter fuel, petrol, ether or
similar products in the refrigerator.
The refrigerator is not suitable for the proper storage of medications.
The appliance must be installed in such a way that accidental contact with
the cooling unit (which heats up when in use) is impossible.
The appliance has to be connected to a properly earthed socket in line
with the relevant valid country regulations.
Servicing must only be carried out by authorised service personnel.
Coolants
Ammonia is used as a coolant.
This is a natural compound also used in household cleaning agents (1 litre of
Salmiak cleaner contains up to 200g of ammonia - about twice as much as is
used in the refrigerator). Sodium chromate is used for corrosion protection (less
than 2% of the coolant).
If a leak occurs (which can be easily detected due to the unpleasant smell):
Ÿ Switch the device off (pull mains plug, if applicable);
Ÿ Ventilate room thoroughly.
Ÿ Inform hotel personnel.
For the safety of hotel guests and personnel, it has been established by
inspectors that the coolant poses no threat to health.
WARRANTY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
Warranty arrangements are in accordance with EC Directive 44/1999/CE and the
normal conditions applicable for the country concerned. For warranty or service,
please contact our customer services section. Spares can be obtained all over
Europe from our relevant customer service points.
When contacting customer service, please always state model, product,
MLC-Code and serial number! You can find this information on the model

INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Check during unpacking that the device is defect-free.
Ÿ Report transport damage to the transport company within 48 hours.
Ÿ Check that the voltage noted on the model label corresponds to the
mains voltage.
Cleaning
Before operating the refrigerator, we recommend you clean it both inside
and outside.
Ÿ Use a soft cloth, lukewarm water and a mild detergent.
Ÿ Following this, wash out the refrigerator using clean water and dry
thoroughly.
Ÿ At annual intervals, remove dust from fridge aggregate using a brush or
soft cloth.
WARNING:
To prevent material damage:
Ÿ Do not use soap or detergents which are harsh, coarse or
which contain soda.
Ÿ Keep the door seal free from oil and grease.
Ÿ The cylinder locks have been lubricated in the factory to be long-lasting.
4.3
Installation
The RH303L has been especially desigend for freestanding or for
installation in kitchens.
Please take great care to observe the following points in order to
guarantee an optimal cooling performance and low energy consumption:
Ÿ Do not place the refrigerator directly beside a heat source and do not
expose it to direct sunlight.
Ÿ An unobstructed air circulation through the cooling aggregate must be
ensured.
Ÿ The ventilation grid must not be covered, for example, by ornaments or
items of clothing.
Ÿ The refrigerator must always be mounted
horizontally.
The following illustrations (A,B,C,D) show four different ways for installing
the refrigerator.
1 = ventilation grid
2 = air going in
3 = air coming out
Note: The ventilation grids (1) must have a clear cross section of at
least 200cm2.

INSTRUCTION FOR USE
5.1
Initial Operation
Ÿ The device must be plugged into a properly
earthed socket.
Ÿ The refrigerator achieves its operating
temperature after several hours.
The refrigerator operates silently !
5.2
Regulating the Temperature
The refrigerator is fitted with an thermostat
control. The thermostat control button is
situated in the internal container’s rear
area.
Normally set the thermostat control button
to position 3-5.
Turning the thermostat control button to a higher position e.g. “6” , causes
a colder temperature in the cooling compartment.
On position “0” the refrigerator is switched off!
5.3
Ice Making
Fill the ice tray to just below the brim with drinking water and place it on the
freezer shelf. For a quick “ice making” turn the thermostat control button to a
higher position e.g. “7”. After finishing the ice cubes turn the control button
back in normally position.

5.4
Defrosting
5.5
Interior Light
Frost will gradually accumulate on the refrigerating surfaces. It must not be
allowed to grow too thick as it acts as an insulator and adversely affects
refrigeratoor performance. Check the formation of frost regulary every week
and when itgets about 3mm thick, defrost the refrigerator.
Turn the refrigerator off (Thermostat control button “0”), remove the ice tray
and all food items. Keep the refrigerator door opened.
Do not try to accelerate defrosting by using any kind of heating
appliance, as this might damage the plastic surfaces of the
refrigerator. Neither should any sharp objects be used to scrape
off the ice.
The defrost water runs from a collector channel to a receptacle at the rear
of the refrigerator where it evaporates
When the ice has melted, wipe the refrigerator dry and restart it.
Changing light bulb:
1. Pull out the
mains plug.
2. Lift the safety plate
and clip reflector disk out.
3. Remove the defective bulb and put in the
new one. (bulb E14, 230V, 6/10W)
To obtain spare bulbs, please contact
your Dometic Service Centre.
5.6
Turning off the Refrigerator
If the refrigerator is not be used for some time:
1. Set the thermostat control button to “0”
2. Pull out the mains plug
Empty the refrigerator. Defrost and clean it as described earlier. Leave the
doors of the refrigerator and the frozen food compartment ajar.

Enviromental Advice
Refrigerators manufactured by Dometic GmbH are free from
CFCs and fluorinated hydrocarbons.
The cooling unit uses ammonia as the coolant (a natural compound of
hydrogen and nitrogen). Cyclopentane, which does not damage the ozone
layer, is used as propellant for the insulation made from PU-foam.
Disposal
In order to ensure the re-use of recyclable packaging materials, these must
be disposed of using local collection systems. The device itself must be
handed over to a disposal company or local council which will guarantee
the correct use of recyclable materials and the proper disposal of the rest.

At an average room temperature of approx. 22°C, it is sufficient to
operate the refrigerator with an average thermostat setting.
If possible, always store pre-cooled goods.
Do not expose the refrigerator to direct sunlight and do not place it
close to a source of heat.
An unobstructed air circulation in the fridge aggregate must be
ensured.
When removing goods, only open the refrigerator briefly.
Switch on the refrigerator approx. 12 hours prior to stocking.
