This indicates information that is especially relevant
to a problem-free installation and operation.
R600a Refrigerant
The refrigerant contained within the
appliance R600a is environmentally
friendly, but flammable. Leaking refrigerant
can ignite.
To prevent possible ignition follow
the warnings below:
Note to the Installer
It is very important to follow the instructions in the
manual to ensure proper installation and operation of
the unit.
• Keep ventilation openings, in
the appliance enclosure or in
the built-in structure, clear of
Before installing the unit, be sure to thoroughly read
and understand all of the information in this manual.
• Do not damage the refrigerant
• Any repairs and work on the appliance
should only be performed by the customer
service department.
Disposal of Old Appliance
Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past.
Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous –
even if they will sit for “just a few days.”
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow these instructions to help prevent accidents.
Before you discard old appliances:
• Remove the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children
may not easily climb inside.
• Cut off the power cable from the discarded
appliance. Discard separately from the appliance.
• Be sure to follow your local requirements for
disposal of appliances.
Contact the trash collection agency in
your area for additional information.
Electrical Safety
Connect this appliance to a 15 amp or 20 amp, 110120 VAC, circuit which is grounded and protected by a
circuit breaker or fuse.
We recommend using a dedicated circuit for this appliance to prevent circuit overload and the chance of
interruption to the appliance.
This appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) polarized plug for your protection against possible
shock hazards.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered,
contact a qualified electrician and have it replaced with
a properly grounded three-prong receptacle in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Electrocution hazard.
Electrical grounding required.
• Do not remove the round grounding
prong from the plug.
• Do not use extension cords or
ungrounded (two prong) adapters.
• Do not use a power cord that is frayed or
Disposal of Carton
The packaging is designed to protect the appliance and
individual components during moving and is made of
recyclable materials.
Keep packaging materials away from
children. Polythene sheets and bags can
cause suffocation!
Please recycle packaging material where facilities are
Do not use a power strip.
Failure to follow these instructions may
result in fire, electrical shock or death.
Blocking for Safety
To avoid a hazard due to instability of the
appliance, it must be fixed in accordance
with the instructions.

HC appliances do not
require any ventilation
openings in the cabinet.
The required air flow is
directed through the toe
kick area.
Only use the ventilation
grille provided with the
appliance. This grille is
required for proper operation of the appliance.
This opening must not be
covered with a cabinet
Failure to use the supplied grille can result in
product failure and will
void the warranty.

Be sure to take these specifications into consideration
when choosing the location of the electrical outlet.
The electrical outlet must not be situated behind
the appliance and must be easily accessible.

Mounting the Anti Tipping Device
• The anti tipping bracket must be mounted to
prevent the appliance from tipping when the
fully stocked door is opened.
• Be sure that there is no plumbing or
electrical wiring located in this area which
screws or drills could damage.
- Figures 8 - 11
The anti tipping bracket is provided with the appliance.
1. Mark the center line of the appliance on the back
wall. Align the anti tipping bracket center to this
2. Depending on the constitution of the floor and
wall, use any possible mounting option as shown
in Figures 8 - 11.
The anti tipping bracket must be fitted at the same
height as the toe kick area. If you set the appliance
to a higher level by laying spacers underneath, the
anti tipping bracket must be fitted accordingly.

deeper than 24" - Figures 12 - 13
A proper function of the anti tipping bracket is warranted
within a cabinet depth of between 24" and 25". If the
cabinet is deeper than 25", a wooden spacer must be
mounted between appliance and wall.
Be sure the wooden spacer is fastened
securely to the floor.
- Figure 14
Apply cover strips above, between and below the securing plates on the side walls of the appliance.
Cut the cover strips to the length shown in Figure 14.
Fit the adhesive cover strips leaving a gap of 1/4" to each
securing plate. This
ensures problem-free
fitting of the covers.
