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.
• 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.
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!
33
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.
• 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
means to speed up defrosting unless they are recommended by the
manufacturer.
• 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.
34
• Refrigerators 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.
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 of playing children
locking 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, should not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.
35
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.
2. If present, remove protective film from the control panel.
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, boilers 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:
36

SN
+10 to +32 °C
N
+16 to +32 °C
ST
+18 to +38 °C
T
+18 to +43 °C
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.
Warning - 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
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 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.
37
Installation
Electrical Connection (valid for United Kingdom only)
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried

4. Finally, leave the doors open so as to avoid a build up of odours.
44
Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves
Your appliance is equipped with glass storage shelves.
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.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
45
Interior Accessories
Humidity Control
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 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 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.
46
Interior Accessories
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.
47
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.
Freezing and storing frozen food
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or
colder before freezing food or storing food already frozen.
• 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.
• 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.
48
Freezing and storing frozen food
• Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time, the quality of the
food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as
quickly as possible.
0 1. For exploitation of maximum freezing capacity press the FROSTMATIC
button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities.
Yellow display lights up.
3
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities.
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 food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
3. 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.
4. Carefully close the freezer compartment door.
3
The appliance’s electronics switch off the FROSTMATIC function automatically after 48 hours. The yellow light goes out. You can also end
the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing the FROSTMATIC button again.
3
When the FROSTMATIC function is switched on the ACTUAL temperature in the fridge can fall slightly. Once the FROSTMATIC function has
been switched off the selected DESIRED temperature will be resumed.
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.
49
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.

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.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 1. Switch on the FROSTMATIC function a few hours before defrosting to
make sure frozen food remains sufficiently frozen.
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.
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.
7. Do not forget to switch the FROSTMATIC function off again.

Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near boilers, radiators or other sources of
warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
• 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.
• Only leave door open as long as necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.

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.
