7 Safety
The safety of our freezers is in accordance with recognised technolo-
gical standards and appliance safety legislation. We nevertheless feel
that it is important to acquaint you with the following safety quidelines:
Use for Intended Purpose
* The freezer is intended for household use. It is suited for the refrige-
ration, freezing and frozen storage of foods as well as the prepara-
tion of ice. It is suited for the freezing and frozen storage of foods as
well as the preparation of ice.
* Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons of
safety.
* If you use the refrigerator/freezer in a commercial application or for
purposes other than the refrigeration, 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 appliance! Please contact your
supplier in the event of damage.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance, 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.
* |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
e Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for
children. 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 {atch 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
* 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 aerosol cans, refill cartridges for
cigarette lighters etc. in the refrigerator/freezer.
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
alcohol 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.
e 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 appliance, 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
(A
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.
* 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.
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.
5" Only for appliances with base cover: Pull cover up to remove.
US Grip the appliance with the recessed handles positioned as in the dra-
wing, and transport the appliance.
Bss” In order to push the appliance into its final position, press carefully at
the top of the upper door and tip the appliance back slightly. The
welght is thus transferred to the back casters and the appliance can be
easily pushed.
Remove transport safeguard

transport.
LS” Remove tape from left and right of the outside of the door.
1
Tape remnants can be removed with benzene.
US” Remove all tape and pads from the interior of the appliance.
03° Remove door seal safeguards from door seal at the inside of the door.
Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room.
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.

each climate classification: each climate classification:
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 is required, in order to prevent
the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.

Switching the Appliance Off
i
го’
il
In order to protect frozen goods, the appliance is guarded against acci-
dental switching off (child-proof).
Refrigerator and freezer compartments can be switched off indepen-
dently of one another.
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. lilumination at the temperature display goes off.
Applies only to models with mains failure warning:
If you remove the mains plug from its socket or disconnect the mains
fuse or circuit breaker without previously having switched the
appliance off with the ON/OFF buttons, the warning system remains
active and calls your attention to the mains power interruption with an
audible warning. You can temporarily silence the audible warning with
the WARNING OFF button, but it nevertheless sounds again after about
2 hours. In such a case reconnect the appliance to the mains and press
and hold both ON/OFF but or 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 mains 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.
Vacation Mode
In the vacation mode the REFERENCE temperature for the refrigerator
is equal to +15°C. Thus you have the opportunity - without the accu-
mulation of odours or mould - to leave the empty refrigerator closed
rather than open, during periods of extended absence (e.g. vacation).
Advantage: Unintentional closing of the door, or accidental closing of
the door by persons who have access to your home during your
absence, is no longer possible. Without the vacation mode this would
lead to the accumulation of odours and mould.
lo activate the vacation mode first press temperature regulator for
refrigerator, so that it is freed from its recessed position.
Turn temperature regulator anticlockwise as far as possible. Indicated
temperature in the temperature display is increased in 1° increments up
to +10°C. The +10°C value is followed by +15°C. The refrigerator is now
in the energy saving vacation mode.
Press temperature regulator back into recessed position.
Attention! Do not store any goods in the refrigerator when the vaca-
tion mode is operational. The temperature is requlated at about +15°C
when the vacation mode is operational. This is too warm for food pro-
ducts.

warning display blinks. If a door remains open for more than
80 seconds, an audible warning sounds as well. If you need more time
for loading or rearranging frozen or refrigerated 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 temperatures in the
refrigerator and the freezer compartment are indicated in blinking
fashion by the temperature displays (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.
Control and Information Systems
Temperature Warning
The red warning display blinks and an audible warning sounds, as soon
as the temperature in the refrigerator or the freezer compartment
climbs to more than 5°C above the respective, selected reference tem-
perature. 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;
- high ambient temperature;
— an error at the appliance.
The audible warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF but-
ton. Both warning display and audible warning are automatically swit-
ched off, when the actual temperature in the refrigerator and/or the
freezer compartment falis to 4*C warmer than the respective, selected
reference temperature.
Note:
* [he red warning display and the audible warning are inoperable:
— after adjusting the temperature to a colder setting, until the
selected reference temperature is reached;
— for the refrigerator, with activated FAST CHILL.
* Only the audible warning is inoperable:
— after switching on the refrigerator or freezer compartment, until
the selected reference temperature is reached for the first time;
- for the freezer compartment, with depressed FAST CHILL/-FREEZE
button (see section: "Freezing").
29
Partial/Complete Thaw Warning
If frozen goods in the freezer compartment have been partially or com-
pletely 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, you should check the
quality of the foods to determine if they can be used, depending on
extent of warming.
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 reference tempe-
rature has been reached for the first time.
Function Errors
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 respective tem-
perature display alternately indicates:
- an error message (error codes F1 through F7) and
- the current storage 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 repair
by the customer service technician.
Opening the Freezer Compartment Door
If the freezer compartment door is closed when the appliance is in ope-
ration, it is possible that it cannot be immediately opened again,
because a vacuum occurs in the freezer compartment which holds the
door closed until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened
again after several minutes.

removed.
To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse.
Models with storage racks
DS”
The glass or plastic storage shelf without openings must be inserted
into the lower guide track above the fruit and vegetable trays. It must
always remain in this position, so that fruit and vegetables remain fresh
longer.
The storage racks can be adjusted to various heights:
Pull the storage rack forward until it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse.
Always be certain that the bar at the back of the storage racks points
up, so that refrigerated goods cannot come into contact with the back
wall of the refrigerator compartment.
The storage racks can be set diagonally for the storage of opened bott-
les:
Pull the storage rack out until it can be tipped up and insert the front
runners into the next highest guide track.
Interior Accessories
Adjustment for tall goods:

vario storage rack (not included with
all models) under the back half.
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.
Trays and Compartments
Vario tray-set (not included with all models)
The two large fruit and vegetable trays can be divided with an adjusta-
ble partition. Half trays (if included) can be hung at the back of the
fruit and vegetable trays.
Tube compartments (not inclu-
ded with all models)

Correct storage
For physical reasons, the refrigera-
tor compartment has different
temperature zones. The coldest
zone is on the lowest storage shelf
immediately above the fruit and
vegetable trays. Warmer zones are
the upper storage shelves and
door racks. The arrangement (see
fig.) indicates where different
types of food are best stored to
make the most of temperature
variations.
For instance, the shelf immedia-
tely above the fruit and vegetable
trays should be 5 °C for safe
storage of meat and fish products.
In order to check that the
appliance is at 5 °C on the lowest
shelf you can carry out the follo-
wing test yourself:
Place a cup of water in the center of the said shelf with a thermometer
inside.
Leave the fridge door closed overnight and check the temperature first
thing in the morning.
At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does,
you need to adjust the temperature regulator to a colder setting.
For further information on keeping food cool and safe a guide
published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is available
and can be obtained free of charge by contacting:
Foodsense, London SE99 7TT. Tel: 0645 556000
Tip: Food stored in the refrigerator compartment should always be
covered or packed so that they do not dry out, lose their flavour, or
transfer their flavour to any other refrigerated food. The following are
suitable for packing:
— polyethylene freshness bags and foil;
— plastic containers with lids;
— special plastic covers with rubber retainers;
— aluminium foil.
Freezing
i
i
Except for the bottom drawer, which serves only for storage purposes,
all compartments and drawers in the freezer compartment 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 piate. 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 CHILL/-
FREEZE button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller
quantities. Yellow display lights up.
The FAST CHILL/-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 goods in the drawers. Unfrozen goods may not come
into contact with already frozen goods, otherwise the frozen goods
may start to thaw.
The appliance electronics automatically recognise when the FAST
FREEZE function can be stopped, and switch it off automatically. Yel-
low display goes out. You can also stop the FAST FREEZE function
manually by pressing the FAST CHILL/-FREEZE button again.
Tips:
* [he following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
— freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
- special cans for frozen goods;
— extra-thick aluminium foil
35
36
* The following are suited for sealing bags and wraps:
plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.
e Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air encoura-
ges drying of frozen goods.
o 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
Attention! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with pre-
viously 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
drawers. Some models are provided with index-tabs which can be atta-
ched to the 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 Calen-
dar"). Thus you have a better overview, avoid opening the door for long
periods and therefore save energy.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
DS” 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.
ES” 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 1s
frozen to the appliance with pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a
spoon-handle or similar object.

Defrosting
The refrigerator is defrosted automatically
The electronics start the defrosting cycle in the refrigerator as needed
based on economical energy use and the maintenance of a constant
temperature. Defrosting cycles are started more or less often, depen-
ding on the degree of moisture accumulation. Because the greatest
accumulation of moisture occurs when the door is open, the frequency
37
Defrosting
38
of defrosting cycles is determined by frequency and duration of door
opening.
The water collects in the discharge trough at the back wall of the refri-
gerator, and is fed through the discharge opening in the catch tray at
the compressor where it is evaporated.
Freezer Compartment Defrosting
Moisture is precipitated in the form of white frost in the freezer com-
partment during operation and when the door is opened, especially in
the middle at the top. Remove this white frost from time to time with a
soft plastic scraper, e.g. a dough scraper. Do not under any circum-
stances 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!
* 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.
ES” About 12 hours prior to defrosting push the FAST CHILL/~-FREEZE but-
ton, in order to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in
operation.
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze
to the goods.
I" Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover
them and store them in a cool place, e.g. in a refrigerator.
US” Switch off refrigerator and freezer and remove plug from the mains, or
switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or the fuse. |
5° 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 freezer compartment and close the door. In addition,
remove pieces of ice that break away before defrosting is complete.
ES” After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as
interior accessories (see section: "Cleaning and Care").
Cleaning and Care
à ©
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 switeh 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.
e Do not use any abrasive cleansers.
If only the refrigerator is to be cleaned, press the FAST CHILL/-FREEZE
button several hours in advance, in order to build up sufficient chill
reserve in the freezer compartment for the interruption in service. The-
reafter, do not open the freezer compartment door.
Defrost freezer compartment before cleaning (see section:
"Defrosting”).
Switch off refrigerator and freezer and remove plug from the mains, or
switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or the fuse.
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.
Check the water discharge opening at the back wall of the refrigerator.
A clogged water discharge opening can be freed with the help of a
Wire.
Accumulation of dust at the condenser reduces cooling performance
and increases energy consumption. For this reason carefully clean the
39
40
Lou
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.
* 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.
* Place frozen goods into the refrigerator for thawing. Cold from fro-
zen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator.
* Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.

Technical Terminology
46
* 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 or installed
with foam directly behind the interior wall, and is thus invisible.
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.
