/ Safety Instructions
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 guidelines:
Use for Intended Purpose
The refrigeration appliance is intended for use at home. Depending
on the preset operation mode, this appliance becomes suitable for
freezing, for deep-cooled storage, for ice preparation or for cooling
foodstuffs. If the appliance is misused or wrongly operated, no
liability for eventual damages can be assumed by the manufacturer.
® Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons of
safety.
e If you should use this refrigeration appliance for commercial or for
another purpose apart from freezing, deep-cooling storage or for
cooling foodstuffs, please observe the legal provisions valid for your
area.
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
environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.
e 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
* Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for
children. Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging materials away from
children!
Safety Instructions
® 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.
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
e 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,
champagne 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
compartment into the mouth. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or
tongue and cause injury.
e 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.
e 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
* |f a malfunction should occur at the appliance, refer first to the
section "What to do if ..." in these operating instruction. If the
instructions in this section are not sufficient, do not undertake any
further work on your own.
e 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
department for repairs.
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.
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 apphance, may not be damaged.
* Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.
Energy Saving Tips
e 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
frozen goods is thus used for cooling in the refrigerator.
¢ Always keep the condenser at the back of the appliance clean.
e |f the interior of the appliance should be used partly, the economy
freezing space divider (special accessory) can be inserted instead of a
freezing tray. This enables additional energy saving.
The most important characteristic
of your appliance
* The appliance allows being used as a freezing unit or as a refrigerator
depending on requirement. For this purpose, the operation mode
"Freezing" or the operation mode "Cooling" can be selected on the
appliance.
— In the operation mode "Freezing", the appliance is usable for
freezing and deep-temperature storage with temperatures from
-15 °C up to -24 °C.
— In the operation mode "Cooling”, this appliance can be operated
as a "long fresh” cooling unit with temperatures from 0 °C or +2 °C,
whereby a dry interior room climate is attained through the no-
frost-technology. The appliance is suitable in the adjustable
temperature range of up to +16 °C, but also as a reservoir and
drinks cooler. Naturally, it is also usable as a "normal” refrigerator
for the temperature range of about +5 °C.
The most important characteristic of your
e FAST CHILL/FAST FREEZE can be selected depending on purpose and
need.
— The FAST CHILL function is suitable for fast cooling larger
quantities in the cooling room, e.g. for drinks or salads during a
party.
Thereby, a SET temperature of +2 °C is automatically preset. After
6 hours have expired, the FAST CHILL function is terminated
automatically.
- The FAST FREEZE function caters for quick freezing of fresh
foodstuffs and protects at the same time the already stored
foodstuff against undesired temperature increase in the freezing
room. The electronics of the appliance recognises automatically,
when the quick freezing mode can be completed, and
automatically switches off the FAST FREEZE function.(Depending
upon the quantity to be frozen after 30 up to maximum 51 hours).
* The no-frost-system enables both the freezing of fresh foodstuff as
well as the storage of readily frozen or cooled foodstuff by cold air. A
vaporiser cools the air in the interior space of the appliance, which is
circulated and uniformly distributed by a ventilator. This uniformly
circulating air-flow caters for a dry climate, low temperature
fluctuations and low temperature differences in the entire
appliance’s interior room. The moisture in the air condenses as frost
on the vaporiser. The vaporiser thaws full-automatically, as soon as
this is necessary. The melted water is drained off outside to the
compressor and evaporates through the heat generated by the latter.
Thus, the interior of the appliance and the stored cooled or frozen
foodstuffs always remain ripe and ice-free. Manual thawing is
dispensed of.

unio
A freezing tray is inserted in the middle of the appliance's interior
room.
Berries, for example, can be pre-frozen on the freezer tray. Advantage:
The berries are not squeezed and maintain their natural form. The
frozen berries can then be stored in compartments or drawers
packaged in individual portions.
The freezing tray also serves for accommodating small frozen food-
stuffs (e.g. herbal produce), furthermore you can accommodate ice
cube shells.
Quick door-opener —
The quick door-opener enables A m
easy opening through its |
integrated opening mechanism.
Please observe that both tappets
(A) always interlock in the fold
of door seal, according to the
figure.
Interior Hlumination
о
The illumination switches on automatically when the appliance door is
opened. By closing the appliance door it is automatically switched off.
If the appliance door remains open for more than 5 minutes, the
interior illumination starts to blink and then switches off automatically
in order to save energy.
If directly after opening the door the interior illumination is not
glowing although the appliance is in operation (recognisable through
the green mains control indicator), the lamp is defective. Exchanging
procedure is described in the "Exchanging Lamps” chapter.

When put into operation anew, the appliance starts in the operation
mode, in which it was set prior to switching off.
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;
— power interruption;
- excessive temperature in the freezer compartment (only in the
operation mode "Freezing”);
— possible partial or complete thawing of frozen goods;
- functional disturbances at the appliance.
Control and Information Systems
"Open Door"-Warning
The red warning indicator blinks when the door is opened. If the door
remains open longer than approx. 80 seconds, an extra warning tone
sounds. If you need more time for sorting or rearranging frozen
foodstuff, you can switch off the 80 seconds warning tone by pressing
the WARNING OFF button.
Power Interruption
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
temperature 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
(only in the operating mode “Freezing”)
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 reference 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.
The audible warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF
button.
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 reference temperature.
Control and Information Systems
Note:
* The red warning display and the audible warning are inoperable:
— after temperature adjustment, until the selected reference
temperature has been reached (exception: actual temperature
exceeds -10°C).
* Only the audible warning is inoperable:
— after the appliance is switched on, and until the selected reference
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
quality of the foods to determine if they can be used.
As soon as the temperature in the freezer compartment has again
fallen below the critical thawing temperature of -4°C, the partial/
complete thaw warning can be switched off with the WARNING OFF
button.
After the appliance has been switched on, the partial/complete thaw
warning remains inoperative until the selected reference temperature
has been reached for the first time.
Function Errors
purée
20
If the appliance electronics have detected a technical malfunction
which has to be corrected by a customer service technician, both
optical 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).
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 button. 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.

Attention!
* Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer
compartment must be -18°C or colder.
e 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.
* To allow storage of awkward freezing foodstuff, the drawers of the
appliance are individually removable. They can be stacked in the one

* 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
encourages drying of frozen goods.
e 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.
| il 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
previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18°C
must be reached.

Regulations, Standards, Guidelines
CE
This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured
in accordance with the appropriate standards.
The necessary measures in accordance with appliance safety legislation
regulations (GSG), accident prevention regulations for refrigeration
appliances (VBG 20) and the regulations of the German Society of
Electrical Engineers (VDE) were observed in the manufacture of this
appliance.
The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks.
This appliance is in accordance with the following EU guidelines:
- 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines.
- 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989
(including guideline change notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline.
Special accessory
You get special accessory through the specialists shops.
® Economy freezing space divider:
If the interior room of the appliance should be used partly, an
economy freezing-room divider can be inserted instead of the
freezing tray. This allows for additional energy saving.
* Deposit grid:
Instead of the drawers, deposit grids can be inserted. This is especially
then advantageous, if the appliance is used as a refrigerator or as
drinks cooler.
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
refrigerant circuit consists for the most part of an evaporator, a
compressor, a condenser and tubing.
¢ Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. This warmth is
withdrawn 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.
e 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.

Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. The
basement 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;
- net 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 subsequent table shows which ambient temperature is assigned to
which climate class if the operation mode "Freezing" is selected:
Attention! If the operation mode "Cooling" is selected, the ambient
temperature at the installation place must be at least 2 °C higher than
the preset SET temperature.
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
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.

circulation never cover or alter the
vent openings.
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.
