Safety
The safety aspects of our refrigerators comply with accepted technical
standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Nevertheless, we consider it our obligation to make you aware of the following safety information:
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the
cooling, freezing and storing of 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 refrigerator are not permitted for reasons of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or for purposes other than the cooling, freezing or frozen storage of foods,
please observe all valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the refrigerator for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in! In the event of damage,
please contact the vendor.
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!
31
Safety
• 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!
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.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer compartment.
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 compartment. Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer compartment.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment. 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 refrigerator (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 the 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.
• Refrigerators/freezers may only be repaired by qualified service engineers. Improper repairs can give rise to significant hazards. If your
appliance needs repairing, please contact your specialist dealer or our
Customer Service.
32
Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped 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.
1
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.
• The refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of
the appliance, may not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.
33
Remove transport safeguard
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
0 1. Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the
appliance.
3
You can remove any remnants of adhesive using white spirit.
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.
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;
If these clearances cannot be maintained a heat insulating pad is
required between the cooker and the refrigeration appliance.
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.
34
Installation
Your refrigerator needs ventilation
Integratable models (i-appliances)
The integrated door of the furniture
cabinet largely seals the installation
recess. i-appliances must therefore
be provided with ventilation by
having an opening in the furniture
plinth. The warmed air must be able
to be exhausted upwards through
the air shaft on the furniture back.
The ventilation cross-sections
should be at least 200 cm2.
Important note! In order not to
impair the function of the appliance, never cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
Models fitted for matching front panel (E-appliances)
Installation option 1 (optimum):
Optimum ventilation of E-appliances is ensured through fresh air
being able to enter both under the
appliance as well as through an
opening in the furniture plinth. The
warmed air must be able to be
exhausted upwards through the air
shaft (min. 200 cm2) on the furniture back.
Installation option 2:
Operation of E-appliances is possible even without a ventilation
opening in the furniture plinth. The
fresh air able to enter under the
appliance is sufficient for ventilation. The function and life of the
appliance are not impaired. The
warmed air must be able to be
exhausted upwards through the air
shaft (min. 200 cm2) on the furniture back. If the appliance is venti35
Installation
lated without a plinth opening, however, the energy consumption may
differ from that specified in the brochure.
Important note! In order not to impair the function of the appliance,
never cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
Installation
See installation instructions supplied.
Please check whether, after installing your appliance and especially
after rehingeing the door, the door seal seals right round. An untight
door seal may lead to heavy frosting and thereby to a higher power
consumption (see also „What to do if...“).
Electrical connection
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)
The rating plate is inside the appliance on the left.
A correctly installed, earthed socket is required for the electrical supply.
The supply must have a fuse rating of at least 10 Amps.
If the socket is not accessible once the appliance is built in, 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).
Attention: The mains connection cable may only be replaced by a skilled electrician. Please contact your dealer or our customer service
department for repairs.

Prior to Initial Start–Up
0 1. Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial
start-up (see section: “Cleaning and Maintenance”).
Starting Up - Setting the Temperature
The temperature regulator is in the
refrigerator compartment on the
upper right. It is also the ON/OFFswitch.
3
Position "0" = Refrigeration off
Position "1" = Warmest interior temperature
Position "6" = Coldest interior temperature
0 1. Plug the mains plug into the mains socket.
2. Set the required temperature by turning the temperature regulator.
The compressor starts and then runs automatically. The interior lighting
comes on.
3. If you want a higher or lower temperature, turn the temperature regulator to a warmer or cooler setting respectively.
Note: When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start
immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place.
3
Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on,
because the storage temperature in the refrigerator is quickly reached.
Important! Wait until the freezer compartment has reached a temperature of –18 °C, before storing frozen food.
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.
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
– A defect in the appliance.
38
The temperature regulator setting may therefore need to be adjusted to
suit the specific conditions.
Recommended settings:
Examples:
Ambient temperature
Temperature controller position
Approx. 10 °C
Range up to 1
Approx. 16 °C
Range about 2
Approx. 25 °C
Range about 2
Approx. 32 °C
2 to3
Approx. 38 °C
1 to2
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on the temperature regulator (position"5" to "6") can cause the
compressor to run continuously.
Reason: when the ambient temperature is high, the compressor must
run continuously to maintain the low temperature in the appliance. The
fridge will not be able to defrost since automatic defrosting of the
fridge is only possible when the compressor is not running (see also
"Defrosting" section). The result is the build up of a thick layer of frost
on the fridge rear wall.
If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer setting (position "4" to "5"). At this setting the compressor will be
switched on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.
Switching off the appliance
0 1. To switch off the appliance, turn the temperature regulator to
position "0".
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
1. Switch off the appliance by turning the temperature regulator to position "0".
2. Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or
fuse.
3. Clean thoroughly (see section: “Cleaning and Maintenance”).
4. Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.
39
Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves/Storage Racks
Depending on the model, your appliance is equipped with either glass
storage shelves or storage racks.
The glass shelf above the fruit and vegetable compartment must always
remain in this position so that fruit and vegetables stay fresh longer.
The remaining 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.
Adjustment for tall goods:
0 1. Remove the front half of the twopart vario glass storage shelf and
insert it at a different level. Space
is thus gained for storage of tall
goods on the underlying storage
shelf.
40
Interior Accessories
Moisture regulation
(not included with all models)
On some models, there is an adjustable air grille in front of the shelf
above the fruit and vegetable compartments.
The opening in the ventilation slots can be steplessly adjusted with a
slider.
Slider in right position: Ventilation slots opened.
Slider in left position: Ventilation
slots closed.
With the ventilation slots open,
the stronger air circulation results
in a lower air moisture content in
the fruit and vegetable compartments.
When the ventilation slots are
closed, the natural moisture content of the food in the fruit and vegetable compartments is preserved
for longer.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
Bottle/can shelf
Some models are fitted with a bottle/
can shelf.
0 1. To insert or move the bottle/can
shelf, pull out the corresponding
storage shelf.
Ensure that the bottle or cans do not
touch the rear wall of the appliance
or, when the door is closed, the door
shelf.
Always lay bottles in the shelf with
the top to the front.
Small bottles and cans can be placed crossways in the holder.
Attention ! Place only unopened bottles or cans horizontally.
41
Interior Accessories
Variable Storage Box
(not on all models, design differs depending on the model)
Some models are equipped with a variable storage box which is fitted
under a door shelf compartment and can be slid sideways.
The box can be inserted under
every door shelf compartment.
0 1. To change, lift the shelf compartment with the box upwards and
out of the holders in the door and
remove the retaining bracket out
of the guide under the shelf compartment.
2. Please do the same in reverse to
insert the shelf at a different
height.
The variable box can be hung from
a storage shelf in the refrigerator
compartment:
0 1. Pull the storage shelf forward until
it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
2. Hang the retaining bracket on the
taper on the storage shelf and
slide the storage shelf back into
the guides.
Bottle Holder
(not included with all models)
Some models are equipped with a
bottle holder in the bottle compartment. This is used to prevent
individual bottles from falling over
and can be slid sideways.
42
Correct Storage
For physical reasons, there are different
temperature regions in the fridge. The
coldest region is on the lowest storage
shelf. Warmer regions are the top storage shelf, the vegetable basket and the
storage compartments on the door.
The arrangement example shows at
which places in the refrigerator suitable temperatures for various types of
foods exist.
Tip: Food in the fridge should always
be covered or packaged, to prevent
drying and tainting of other food.
The following are suited for packaging:
– Polyethylene airtight bags and wraps;
– Plastic containers with lids;
– Special plastic covers with elastic;
– aluminium foil.
43
Freezing and storing frozen food
The freezer compartment is for freezing and storing food.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or
colder before freezing food or storing food already frozen (for the
recommended settings, see the table in the section "Starting up Setting the temperature").
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will
cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
goods.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 1. 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.
2. Lay the packaged food on the floor of the freezer compartment. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen
food could begin to defrost.
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.
• 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.
44
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer
compartment and leave to freeze.
2. 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 a spoon handle
or similar.
Defrosting
The fridge defrosts automatically
The rear wall of the fridge covers with frost when the compressor is
running, and defrosts when the compressor is off.
The water from the thawing frost is collected in the drain channel on
the rear of the fridge, feed through the drain hole into the collector on
the compressor, and then evaporated.
The water drainage hole must be cleaned regularly (see the section
"Cleaning and Maintenance".
Defrosting the freezer compartment
During use and when the freezer compartment door is opened, moisture is deposited in the freezer compartment as frost. Remove this frost
from time to time with a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a pastry scraper.
Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects to remove frost.
The freezer compartment should always be defrosted when the layer of
frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres; however at least
once a year. A good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty
or contains only little food.
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, they can be hazardous to your health
and/or contain substances that damage plastics.
45
Defrosting
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 1. A few hours before defrosting, set the temperature controller to 6 in
order to create a refrigeration reserve in the frozen food.
2. Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store it,
covered, in a cool place.
3. Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off
the circuit breaker.
4. Remove the stopper from the
melt-water outlet and place a
bowl underneath it to catch the
melt-water.
Attention! After defrosting,
replace the plug in the condensation water drain.
Tip: You can speed up the
defrosting process by placing a
pan with warm water in the
freezer compartment and closing
the door. Remove pieces of ice that have fallen before they completely
defrost.
5. After defrosting, thoroughly clean the unit, including the inside ( see
"Cleaning and Maintenance" section). Replace the stopper in the meltwater outlet.
6. Put the food inside and put the unit back into operation.
46
Cleaning and Maintenance
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories, should be cleaned regularly.
1
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 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;
– 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.
0 1. Remove frozen food and the food from the refrigerator. Wrap frozen
food in several layers of newspaper. Store it in a cool place, well covered.
2. Defrost the freezer compartment (see "Defrosting" section).
3. Switch the appliance off and remove the plug from the mains, or
switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
4. Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and lukewarm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also
be used.
5. After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
6. Regularly unblock the condensation
water drainage hole in the rear wall
of the refrigeration chamber with
the aid of the green strip inserted
into the drainage hole.
7. After everything is dry place appliance back into service.
47

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.

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.
