Safety instructions
NOTE
Older appliances are often fitted with a snap-lock or
a lock with a catch. If you intend to dispose of such
an appliance, please wreck the lock first. Otherwise
children might lock themselves in while playing and
that could put their lives in danger.
Please make sure the pipes in your old appliance are
protected from damage until it can be taken away for
proper, environmentally friendly disposal. If coolant
were to spurt out it could cause injuries to your skin
or eyes.
NOTE
Repairs to electrical appliances must only ever be
carried out by a qualified electrician. Improper tam-
pering can lead to considerable damage and to the
loss of guarantee protection.
Risk of explosion
My freezer compartment is not the right place for
carbonated drinks such as lemonade, beer, or cola; if
the contents are frozen solid the internal pressure
rises and the bottle or can might explode!
NOTE
Never touch deep-frozen food with wet hands, and
never put ice-cubes straight into your mouth. Your
hands or your tongue might freeze solid.
General instructions
You have acquired a refrigerator for your household
which has been manufactured in compliance with all
the industrial standards that apply to appliances of
this kind.
The German “VBG 20" accident prevention regula-
tions for refrigeration equipment were adhered to
during manufacture. |
The coolant circuit has been checked for leaks. This
appliance also complies with the EC radio and tv
suppression directive 87/308 EC.
Information on the packaging of
the appliance
All the kinds of plastic used are environmentally
compatible. They can be disposed of without any
risk onto a rubbish-tip or by incineration.
The different kinds of plastic are identified as follows
and can be recycled:
»PE« for polyethylene, e.g. for outer wrap and the
bags inside
yPS« for expanded polystyrene, e.g. for the padding,
produced entirely without the use of CFC's.
The cardboard parts were produced from recycled
paper and should be torn apart and handed in to your
waste-paper recycling centre.
Commercial use
Should you use this appliance commercially, or for
any other purpose than freezing food and keeping it
cool, please observe the statutory regulations in
force in your area.
Setting up the appliance
| need air!
If my refrigeration machinery is to work faultlessly, it
needs good ventilation. Please make sure that the
ventilation openings are not covered over or
blocked.
Ambient temperature has an effect on the amount of
power consumed by my refrigeration machinery.
This is why | should not stand in the direct sunshine
or next to a radiator or the cooker.
Use in a room in which the temperature can fall
below +16 °C or exceed +32 °C for any length of
time should be avoided.

Setting up
Please make sure that | have a firm, horizontal sur-
face to stand on. Any unevenness in the floor can be
compensated for by screwing one of my adjustable
feet in or out.
Installation
See enciosed installation instructions.
Before starting up
Like all new appliances | have a certain odour of my
own. Please clean out the interior of the appliance
and all parts and accessories before starting up for
the first time (see also “Care and Cleaning”).

Starting up and setting the
temperature
Fig. 7
| can be switched on by rotating the temperature reg-
ulator (2) from the "0" setting in the direction of “1”.
The interior light is on wheneve- the appliance door is
open, and the refrigeration machinery then starts to
work.
Setting the temperature
The cooling output of the appliance can be infinitely
varied by means of the temperature regulator (2).
This sets the temperature in the C++) deep-freeze
compartment (A) and in the refrigerating compart-
ment (B) at the same time.
Position “1” means: low output, the ieast cold set-
ting.
Positions higher than “1” means: higher output,
coider settings.
The “E-9” setting means: highest refrigeration out-
put, coldest possible setting.
With normal refrigeration in the refrigeration com-
partment (B), without the deep-freeze compartment
being in use, | recommend Position “1”, and if lower
temperatures are required “2” or “Ces.
When deep-frozen food is being stored in the deep-
freeze compartment, turn the temperature regulator
(2) to the "E##" position, so that the temperature in
the deep-freeze compartment is maintained at
—18 °C or below.
Switching off
| can be switched off by turning the temperature reg-
ulator (2) to the “0” setting. The interior light then re-
mains off even if the appliance door is open.
if no-one is going to be at home for a long period of
time, | should be emptied, my plug should be pulled
out of the socket, and my door should be left open.
Tips on proper storage
Fig. 1
You can store deep-frozen food, ice-cream, and ice-
cubes in my +3 deep-freeze compartment (A).
For technical reasons, there will always be slight dif-
ferences in temperature from one part of the refrig-
14
eration compartment (B) to another. The relatively
colder areas will be the lower half of the rear wall
(where the cooling unit is) and the lowest storage
shelf. The less cold areas are the top storage shelf,
the storage shelves in the door, and the fruit and
vegetable container.
Different kinds of food need ditferent temperatures
for optimum storage. You should store fresh meat or
dairy products as cool as possible, meaning on the
bottom shelf, whereas it is best to keep bakery prod-
ucts or ready-to-eat meais on the top shelves. Eggs,
cheese, and butter have the best conditions in the
storage compartments designed for them in the
door, and fruit and vegetables, including lettuce,
keep fresh longest in the fruit and vegetable contain-
er.
Freezing food and keeping it in
deep freeze
You can store deep-frozen food in my +=) deep-
freeze compartment, and freeze small quantities (up
to 1.5 kilos) of fresh food yourself.
Always make sure that the door of my deep-freeze
compartment is always closed so firmly that you can
hear (1) it click shut.
Tips on proper freezing and storage
— If you wish to store deep-frozen food, or to freeze
fresh food, turn my temperature regulator (2) to
the “E ==7" setting so that i attain the optimum stor-
age temperature of -18°C in my deep-freeze
compartment E28 (see “Setting the temperature’).
If frozen food is only to be stored temporarily and
for a short time, setting “2” on the temperature
regulator will suffice. You will thus save electricity
and avoid low temperatures in the refrigerator
compartment. However, if you wish to make use
of the maximum shelf life of the frozen food the
temperature regulator has to be left at (Пе "++"
setting.
~ Check the “best before” date on the deep-frozen
food.
— If you wish to freeze food yourself, check first that
it is fresh and in perfect condition.
— Food must always be packed in an airtight wrap-
ping or a closed container.
— You will attain a better quality if the food is frozen
through to its core quickly, so always lay the
wrapped or packed food as flat as possible on the
floor of the deep-freeze compartment. Make sure
(es)
that food that has not yet been frozen is separate
from food that is aiready frozen, as otherwise the
already frozen food may begin to thaw out.
Making ice-cubes
Fig. 1
You can make ice-cubes in my ice-cube tray (1). Fill it
three-quarters full with water and place it on the floor
of the E=3) deep-freeze compartment. The tempera-
ture regulator (2) should be set at ==).
Note:
If the ice-cube trdy is frozen down, you can loosen it
with a plastic scraper but never with any sharp or
pointed object, as you might otherwise damage the
condenser.
When the ice-cubes are ready it will be easier to take
them out if you hold the ice-cube tray briefly under
running water.
Defrosting, care and cleaning
| should be cleaned at reguiar intervals. This is best
done when | am empty or nearly empty.
It is important that | should be disconnected from the
mains during cleaning (pull the plug out or undo the
fuse).
Defrosting the deep-freeze
compartment
My deep-freeze compartment does no: defrost au-
tomaticaily. You will know that the time has come to
defrost it when a layer of frost has formed about
4 mm thick.
Note:
Any increase in temperature above -18 °C shortens
the shelf-life of the deep-frozen food. In order to en-
sure it warms up during the defrosting process only
to the smallest possible extent, wrap it in plenty of
layers of newspaper and store it in a cool place.
Note:
You can speed up the defrosting process by placing
a container of hot water inside the refrigerator com-
partment and removing any loose pieces of ice be-
fore they meit completely.
не
15
Please do not try to remove the ice with any sharp or
pointed object, if anything only with a plastic scraper.
And please do not try to hurry the defrosting up with
electrical heating appliances! There would be an
acute danger of an accident to you and of destruc-
tion to me.
Note:
Please make sure while cleaning that no water en-
ters my temperature reguiator.
Only ever use lukewarm water with a mild, non-
scouring cleaner in it to clean my interior and its fit-
tings. Then wipe round with clear water and rub
dry.
Fig. 8
Please make sure that the outlet (13) of my
condensation-water gully (14) is always free. To
check, pour a small quantity of water into the gully. i
the outlet should be blocked it can be opened up
with a tooth-pick or a piece of wire.
After cleaning me, rub my interior thoroughly dry and
start me up again.
You should thoroughly clean the condenser, which
gives off heat and is located on the outside of my
rear wall, once year. The dust that accumulates
there acts like insulation and increases my power
consumption.
Fig. 9
The plinth facia can be removed. Press the two clips
in the ventilation shits downwards and at the same
time pull the plinth facia out forwards.
Removing the layer of frost
from the refrigerator
compartment
In normal operation, when the door is opened atmos-
pheric humidity accumulates at the coldest points in
my interior in tne form of frost.
This is defrosted automatically. The condensation
water collects in the gully {14) and evaporates out-
side my rear wall.
Tips on saving energy
- Ambient temperature has an effect on the amount
of power consumed by my refrigeration machin-
ery. This is why | should not stand in the direct
sunshine or next to a radiator or the cooker.
- Never place hot food inside my refrigerator com-
partment. Leave it to coot down to room tempera-
ture first. |
- Do not open my door any more often than neces-
sary, and close it again as soon as you can.
- Set the temperature regulator to a setting which
saves electricity. Position “1” is sufficient if you
merely want to keep food cool in the refrigeration
compartment (B). Position "2" is sufficient if low
temperatures are required in the refrigeration
compartment (8B) or if deep-frozen food is being
stored only temporarily in the @=#) deep-freeze
compartment (A).
If on the other hand you want to make full use of
the shelf-life of the deep-frozen food, the temper-
ature regulator must be set to the "==2)" posi-
tion.
Defrost the deep-freeze compartment as soon as
the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm. Layers
of frost and ice hinder the circulation of air around
the frozen food and increase my electricity con-
sumption,
- Place deep-frozen food in the refrigeration com-
partment to defrost it. During this time it can be
“radiating coldness”, so | will need less energy to
keep everything else cool. However, defrosting
frozen food does take longer this way.
Ensure | have plenty of ventilation, as this will
mean less work for my refrigeration machinery.
Keep the condenser (heat-exchanger) clean - that
is the metal grill on my rear wali that gives off heat.
Clean it thoroughly at least once a year.
What’s to be done if ... ?
. the interior light does not come on when the
door is open?
1. Please check to see whether the temperature
regulator is at the "0" position (Off), the plug has
been pulied out, the fuse has blown, or there is a
power failure all over your neighbourhood.
2. Fig. 10
If the bulb has burnt out, unplug the appliance
from the mains. Remove the cover (15) and re-
place the bulb (max. 15 W, 220 V, fitment
E14).
3. If the switch (16) is sticking, piease call the serv-
ice centre.
... unpleasant noises occur:
1. Check whether | am standing firmly and in a hori
zontal position (see "Setting up the appliance”).
16
2 Check whether some foreign body is lodged in
the area of the condenser (the grid in the rear
wall).
If any part of the condenser cannot move freely to
and fro and touches either the appliance or the
wall, please carefully bend it to one side.
. a heavy layer of ice forms in the deep-freeze
compartment:
Check whether the door of my deep-freeze com-
partment has been properly closed so that you
can hear it click shut.
... the internal temperature is too high.
1 Check whether the appliance door has been left
open for long periods of time, or has been fre-
quently opened and shut
2 Check whether the air flow to and from the apphi-
ance has been blocked
3 Make sure that the temperature regulator has not
been set at the "0" position (Off). that the applt-
ance has not been disconnected, and that there
has not been a power failure all over your neigh-
bourhood.
4 If the refrigeration machinery still does not start
up. keep the appliance closed if at all possible and
call the service centre at once
