_1 Safety
The safety of our freezers is in accordance with recognised technolo-
gical standards and apptiance safety legislation. 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
* Check the refrigerator/freezer for transport damage. Do not under
any circumstances connect a damaged apphance! Please contact your
supplier in the event of damage.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the apphance, 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 |f 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.
Safety
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
alcoho! 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 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 the plug from the mains socket, do not
pull on the cable.
In case of malfunction
If a malfunction should occur at the apphance, 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.
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
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 The 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.
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.
DS” Only for appliances with base cover: Pull cover up to remove.
DS” Grip the appliance with the recessed handles positioned as in the dra-
wing, and transport the appliance.
ES” 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.
Remove tape from left and right of the outside of the door.
Tape remnants can be removed with benzene. Wipe off benzene.
Remove all tape and pads from the interior of the appliance.
“Peal off the protective film from the control panel.
Remove door seal safeguards from door seal at the inside of the door.

Installation
Installation Location
10
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. The base-
ment is an ideal set-up location for freezers.
Energy use 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 corre-
sponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is desi-
gned.
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
CN © +10to+32°C
N о +16 t0#+32 °C. >
ST +18t0+38°C
ro me rage
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 requi-
red 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 1s required, in order to prevent
the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.
Installation
The refrigerator or freezer needs air
Air is fed under the door through the vent | ol |
slots in the base and is exhausted upwards min 10cm
along the back wall. To ensure proper air cir- f |
culation never cover or alter the vent ope-
nings. (
Attention! 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. |
US” 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.

Switching the Appliance Off
ÿ &
24
In order to protect frozen goods, the appliance is guarded against acci-
dental switching off (child-proof).
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:
Switch appliance off by pressing and holding the ON/OFF button for
about 5 seconds.
Remove the mams plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or
fuse.
Defrost freezer compartment and clean thoroughly (see section: "Cle-
aning and Care").
Leave door open after defrosting to avoid accumulation of odours.
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 SET 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.
25
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 SET temperature.
Note:
* The red warning display and the audible warning are inoperable:
after temperature adjustment, until the selected SET temperature 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 SET
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 SET temperature
has been reached for the first time.
Function Errors
26
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
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 repatr
by the customer service technician.
Freezing
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.
* 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.
27
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.
e 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
28
Attention! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with
previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18°C
must be reached.
e 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.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
D 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.
US” 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.

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.

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 es
goods may not extend above the marking on the left
side of the appliance interior.

Defrosting
30
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!
e 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.
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.
Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover
them and store them in a cool place, e.g. in a refrigerator.
Switch appliance off and remove plug from the mains, or switch off or
turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
Us
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.
After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as
interior accessories (see section: "Cleaning and Care").
Cleaning and Care
E
LL
=x
=
I=
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accesso-
ries, should be cleaned regularly.
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.
Defrost the freezer compartment (see section: "Defrosting").
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and luke-
warm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also
be used.
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.
e 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.
e Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
e Place frozen goods into the refrigerator for thawing. Cold from fro-
zen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator.
e Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.

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.
* 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.
