Installing the appliance
Have a technician install and connect the appliance
according to the enclosed installation instructions.
The appliances are heavy and must be secured during
transportation and installation.
Because of the weight / dimensions of the appliance
and to minimise the risk of injuries and damage to
the appliance at least two persons are necessary to
set-up the appliance securely.
Installation location
A dry, well ventilated room is suitable as an installation
location. The installation location should not be
exposed to direct sunlight and not placed near a heat
source, e.g. a cooker, radiator, etc. If installation next
to a heat source is unavoidable, use a suitable
insulating plate or observe the following minimum
distances from the heat source:
3 cm to electric or gas cookers.
30 cm to an oil or coal-fired cooker.
The floor of the installation location must not give way;
if required, reinforce floor.
Ambient temperature
and ventilation
Ambient temperature
The climate class can be found on the rating plate.
The climate class indicates within which ambient
temperatures the appliance can be operated.
Climate class
Permitted ambient
+10 °C to 32 °C
+16 °C to 32 °C
+16 °C to 38 °C
+16 °C to 43 °C
The appliance is fully functional within the room
temperature limits of the indicated climatic class. If
an appliance of climatic class SN is operated at colder
room temperatures, the appliance will not be damaged
up to a temperature of +5 °C.
Connecting the appliance
After installing the appliance, wait at least 1 hour until
the appliance is switched on. During transportation
the oil in the compressor may have flowed into
the refrigeration system.
Before switching on the appliance for the first time,
clean the interior of the appliance (see chapter
“Cleaning the appliance”).
Electrical connection
The socket must be near the appliance and also freely
accessible following installation of the appliance.
The appliance complies with the protection class I.
Connect the appliance to 220-240 V/50 Hz alternating
current via a correctly installed socket with protective
conductor. The socket must be fused with a 10 to
16 A fuse.
For appliances operated in non-European countries,
the identification plate should be checked whether
the electric supply and the current model stated match
the values of the mains supply. The rating plate is
situated in the bottom left-hand side of the appliance.
Conduction of the heated air must not be obstructed.
Otherwise, the refrigeration unit must work harder. This
increases power consumption. Therefore: Never cover
or block the ventilation opening!
Never connect the appliance to electronic energy saver
Our appliances can be used with mains and sinecontrolled inverters. Mains-controlled inverters are used
for photovoltaic systems which are connected directly
to the national grid. Sine-controlled inverters must be
used for isolated applications (e.g. on ships or in
mountain lodges) which are not connected directly to
the national grid.

The refrigerator compartment is the ideal storage
location for ready meals, cakes and pastries, preserved
food, condensed milk, hard cheese, fruit
and vegetables sensitive to cold as well as tropical fruit.
When purchasing food, please note:
The “purchase freshness” is important for the shelf-life
of your food.
In principle, the fresher the produce when placed in
the “cool-fresh” compartment, the longer it stays fresh.
Therefore, when buying food, always pay attention to
the degree of freshness.
Observe the best-before date specified by the
manufacturer for ready products and bottled products.
Arranging food in the appliance
Wrap or cover food before placing in the appliance.
This will retain the aroma, colour and freshness of
the food. In addition, flavours will not be transferred
between foods and the plastic parts will not become
Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before
placing in the appliance.
Do not block air outlet openings with food in
the refrigerator compartment, otherwise the air
circulation will be impaired.
Food which is stored directly in front of the air outlet
openings may be frozen by the cold air flowing out.
Avoid contact of oil and fat with the plastic parts
and door seal.
Press super button refrigerator compartment.
“Cool-fresh” container
The temperature in the “cool-fresh” container is about
0 °C. The “cool-fresh” drawer is covered by a special
filter which sets the ideal humid climate.
When purchasing food, please note:
The “purchase freshness” is important for the shelf-life
of your food.
In principle, the fresher the produce when placed in
the “cool-fresh” compartment, the longer it stays fresh.
The low temperature and the optimum moisture provide
ideal storage conditions for fresh food.
Food can be kept fresh up to three times longer than
in the normal cooling zone – for even longer freshness,
nutrient retention and flavour.
Therefore, when buying food, always pay attention to
the degree of freshness.
Observe the best-before date specified by the
manufacturer for ready products and bottled products.
