Installing the appliance


The appliance is heavy. Secure in position during transportation and installation.

Due to the weight/dimensions of the appliance and to minimise the risk of injury and damage to the appliance at least two persons are necessary to set-up the appliance safely.

Installation location

Install the appliance in a dry, well ventilated room.

The installation location should neither be exposed to direct sunlight nor 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 to a heat source:

3 cm to electric or gas cookers.

30 cm to an oil or coal-fired cooker.

If installing the appliance next to another refrigerator or freezer, ensure a minimum lateral distance of 25 mm to prevent the formation of condensation.

If a panel or cupboard is installed above the appliance, ensure that a gap of 30 mm is left so that the appliance can be pulled out of the recess if required.

The air heated on the rear side of the appliance must be allowed to escape unhindered.






The appliance is very heavy.

Design: 128 kg

The floor of the installation location must not give way; if required, reinforce floor.

To ensure that the doors can open all the way, observe lateral minimum distances when installing the appliance in a corner or recess (see chapter

Installation dimensions).

If the depth of the adjacent kitchen equipment is more than 60 cm, observe lateral minimum distances in order to utilise the full door opening angle (see chapter “Door opening angle“).

Observe 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.

The rating plate is located in the refrigerator compartment at the right side.

Climate class





Permitted ambient temperature

+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.


Never cover the ventilation openings on the rear of the appliance. Conduction of the heated air must not be obstructed. Otherwise, the refrigeration unit must work harder. This increases power consumption.

Place the enclosed spacers in the designated holders on the back of the appliance. This ensures that there is a minimum distance between the appliance and the wall.

Freezer compartment

Use the freezer compartment

To store deep-frozen food.

To make ice cubes.

To freeze food.


Ensure that the freezer compartment door has been closed properly. If the door is open, the frozen food will thaw. The freezer compartment will become covered in thick ice. Also: waste of energy due to high power consumption!

When the freezer compartment door is closed, a low pressure occurs, causing a sucking noise. Wait two to three minutes until the low pressure has adjusted itself.

We recommend leaving the ice cube container in the appliance. This ensures optimum temperature distribution in the freezer compartment.

Purchasing frozen food

Packaging must not be damaged.

Use by the “use by” date.

Temperature in the supermarket freezer must be

-18 °C or lower.

If possible, transport deep-frozen food in an insulated bag and place quickly in the freezer compartment.

Freezing capacity

Information about the freezing capacity can be found on the rating plate (see diagram in chapter “Customer



Freezing fresh food

Freeze fresh and undamaged food only.

To retain the best possible nutritional value, flavour and colour, vegetables should be blanched before freezing.

Aubergines, peppers, zucchini and asparagus do not require blanching.

Literature on freezing and blanching can be found in bookshops.


Keep food which is to be frozen away from food which is already frozen.

The following foods are suitable for freezing:

Cakes and pastries, fish and seafood, meat, game, poultry, vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs without shells, dairy products such as cheese, butter and quark, ready meals and leftovers such as soups, stews, cooked meat and fish, potato dishes, soufflés and desserts.

The following foods are not suitable for freezing:

Types of vegetables, which are usually consumed raw, such as lettuce or radishes, eggs in shells, grapes, whole apples, pears and peaches, hardboiled eggs, yoghurt, soured milk, sour cream, crème fraîche and mayonnaise.

Packing frozen food

To prevent food from losing its flavour or drying out, place in airtight containers.

1. Place food in packaging.

2. Remove air.

3. Seal the wrapping.

4. Label packaging with contents and date of freezing.

Suitable packaging:

Cling wrap, tubular film made of polyethylene, aluminium foil, freezer containers.

These products are available from specialist outlets.

Unsuitable packaging:

Wrapping paper, greaseproof paper, cellophane, bin liners and used shopping bags.

Items suitable for sealing packaged food:

Rubber bands, plastic clips, string, cold-resistant adhesive tape, etc.

Bags and tubular film made of polyethylene (PE) can be sealed with a film heat sealer.

Shelf life of frozen food

Storage duration depends on the type of food.

At a temperature of -18 °C:

Fish, sausage, ready meals and cakes and pastries:

■ up to 6 months

Cheese, poultry and meat:

■ up to 8 months

Vegetables and fruit: up to 12 months



Super freezing

Food should be frozen solid as quickly as possible in order to retain vitamins, nutritional value, appearance and flavour.

Several hours before placing fresh food in the freezer compartment, switch on super freezing to prevent an unwanted temperature rise.

As a rule, 4–6 hours is adequate.

This appliance runs constantly and the freezer compartment drops to a very low temperature.

If the max. freezing capacity is to be used, super freezing must be switched on for 24 hours before the fresh produce is placed in the freezer compartment.

■ m


Do not refreeze thawing or thawed food. Only ready meals (boiled or fried) may be refrozen.

No longer store the frozen produce for the max. storage period.

Refrigerator compartment

The refrigerator compartment is the ideal storage location for meat, sausage, fish, dairy products, eggs, ready meals and pastries.

Storing food

Store fresh, undamaged food. The quality and freshness will then be retained for longer.

In the case of ready-made products and bottled goods, observe the best-before date or use-by date specified by the manufacturer.

To retain aroma, colour and freshness, pack or cover food well before placing in the appliance.

This will prevent the transfer of flavours and the discolouration of plastic parts in the refrigerator compartment.

Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before placing in the appliance.


Avoid contact between food and rear panel. Otherwise the air circulation will be impaired.

Food or packaging could freeze to the rear panel.

Note the chill zones in the refrigerator compartment

The air circulation in the refrigerator compartment creates different chill zones:

Coldest zone is between the vegetable container and the glass shelf situated above.


Store perishable food (e.g. fish, sausage, meat) in the coldest zone above the vegetable container.

Warmest zone is at the very top of the door.


Store e.g. hard cheese and butter in the warmest zone. Cheese can then continue to release its flavour and the butter will still be easy to spread.


“Cool-fresh” container

Foods suitable for “cool-fresh” container:

In principle all foods which are fresh and are to remain fresh for even longer, such as: fish, seafood, meat and sausage, dairy products, and ready meals.

Foods not suitable for the “cool-fresh” drawer:

Fruit and vegetables sensitive to cold (e.g.: tropical fruit such as pineapples, bananas, papaya, citrus fruits, melons as well as tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini, capsicums, cucumbers, potatoes).

The ideal storage location for these foods is the refrigerator compartment.

Vegetable container with humidity controller

To create the optimum storage climate for fruit and vegetables, you can set the air humidity in the vegetable container depending on the quantity stored:

■ smaller quantities of fruit and vegetables – high air humidity large quantities of fruit and vegetables – low air humidity



Fruit sensitive to cold (e.g. pineapple, banana, papaya and citrus fruit) and vegetables sensitive to cold (e.g. aubergines, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes) should be stored outside the refrigerator at temperatures of approx.

+8 °C to +12 °C for optimum preservation of quality and flavour.

Condensation may form in the vegetable container depending on the type and quantity of products stored. Remove condensation with a dry cloth and adjust air humidity in the vegetable container with the humidity controller.

Super cooling

Super cooling sets the refrigerator temperature to the coldest temperature setting for approx. 6 hours.

Then the appliance automatically switches to the temperature set prior to super cooling mode.

Switch on super cooling mode, e.g.

■ before placing large quantities of food in the refrigerator compartment.
