Important Safety Instructions
4
These warnings are provided in the interests of your safety. Ensure
you fully understand them before installing or using the appliance.
Your safety is of paramount importance. If you are unsure about the
meaning of these warnings contact the Customer Care Department
for assistance.
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for
cooling, freezing and storing of frozen food, as well as for making
ice. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended
or used incorrectly, no liability can be accepted by the manufacturer
for any damage that may be caused.
• Alterations or changes to the refrigerator are not permitted for reasons of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or for purposes other than the cooling, freezing or frozen storage of foods, the
manufacturer accepts no liability for any damages which may occur.
Prior to initial start–up
• Ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply
cable. Important: if the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced
by authorised service or qualified personnel using a special cable of
the same type.
• Check the appliance for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in! In the event of damage,
please contact your supplier.
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.
• During transportation and installation of the appliance, be certain
that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit become damaged.
• If the refrigerant circuit should become damaged:
– avoid open flames and sources of ignition;
– thoroughly ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
Safety of children
• Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children.
There is a risk of suffocation! Keep packaging material away from
children!
• Please make old appliances unusable prior to disposal. Pull out the
Important Safety Instructions
mains plug, cut off the mains cable, break or remove spring or bolt
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of suffocation!) or get themselves into other dangerous situations.
• Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household
appliances. It is therefore important that you ensure adequate
supervision and never let children play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers
with flammable materials such as spray cans, fire extinguisher refill
cartridges etc in the refrigerator and/or freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer compartment.
They can burst when the contents freeze, high carbonate content
drinks can even explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine,
sparkling wine etc. in the freezer compartment.
• Do not put ice cream or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment. Very cold ice can freeze to
the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze
to the food.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator and/or
freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and
unplug it, or pull the house fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
• Placing frozen goods on the top of the appliance can lead to the
accumulation of condensation in the cavity of the storage tray
through contact with the cold. Electronic components are housed
within this cavity. If condensation 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
• If a malfunction occurs on the appliance, please look first in the
"What to do if ..." section of these instructions. If the information
given there does not help, please do not perform any further repairs
yourself.
• Under no circumstance should you attempt to repair the appliance
yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local Service Force
Centre.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be disposed of 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 ensures that playing children do not
lock themselves inside 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 appliance, must not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from your local Council or Environmental Health Office.
Remove transport packaging
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
1. Pull off the adhesive tape on the left and right side of the door.
2. Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the

☞
Bottle Holder
Some models are equipped with a bottle
holder in the bottle compartment. This is
used to prevent individual bottles from
falling over and can be slid sideways.
17
Correct storage
For physical reasons, there are different temperature regions in the
fridge. The coldest region is on the
lowest storage shelf. Warmer
regions are the top storage shelf,
the vegetable drawer and the storage compartments on the door.
The arrangement example shows at
which places in the refrigerator
suitable temperatures for various
types of foods exist.
Tip: Food in the fridge should
always be covered or packaged, to
prevent drying and tainting of other
food.
The following are suited for packaging:
– Polyethylene airtight bags and wraps;
– Plastic containers with lids;
– Special plastic covers with elastic;
– aluminium foil.
Freezing and storing frozen food
The freezer compartment is for freezing and storing food.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18°C or colder before freezing fresh food or storing food already frozen.
• Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time (max. 2 kg per 24
hrs). The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right
through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will
cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.

☞1. To
FROSTMATIC button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for
smaller quantities. Yellow display lights up.
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities.
2. All foods must be packed into airtight packages or containers 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 food with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food causing skin abrasions.
3. Lay the packaged food on the base of the freezer compartment.
Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the
frozen food could begin to defrost.
The appliance’s electronics switch off the FROSTMATIC function automatically after 24 hours. The yellow light goes out. You can also end
the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing the FROSTMATIC button again.
When the FROSTMATIC function is switched on the ACTUAL temperature in the fridge can fall slightly. Once the FROSTMATIC function has
been switched off the selected DESIRED temperature will be resumed.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special cans for frozen goods;
– extra–thick aluminium foil.
• The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrappings:
plastic clips, rubber bands or tape.
• Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for
the frozen food to dry out.
• 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.

Preparation of Ice Cubes
the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer
☞1. Fill
compartment and leave to freeze.
2. To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it
under running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer
compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects, since you may
damage the refrigerating circuit. Use the plastic scraper.
Defrosting
The fridge defrosts automatically
The rear wall of the fridge covers with frost when the compressor is
running, and defrosts when the compressor is off. The water from the
thawing frost evaporates by itself.
The water drainage hole must be cleaned regularly (see the section
"Cleaning and Care").
Defrosting the freezer compartment
During use and when the freezer compartment door is opened, moisture is deposited in the freezer compartment as frost. Remove this
frost from time to time with the soft plastic scraper. Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects to remove frost.
The freezer compartment should always be defrosted when the layer of
frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres; however at least
once a year. A good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty
or contains only a small amount of food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.

6. Check the water drain hole on the rear
wall of the fridge.
Clear a blocked drain hole with the aid
of the green peg in the pack of accessories included with the appliance.
7. After everything is dry place appliance
back into service.
Accumulation of dust at the condenser
increases energy consumption. For this
reason carefully clean the condenser at
the back of the appliance once a year with a soft brush or a vacuum
cleaner.
22
Energy Saving Tips
• 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.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.
• Always keep the heat emitting condenser, the metal grille on the rear
wall of your appliance clean.

Technical terminology
• Refrigerant
Liquids that can be used to a generate a cooling effect are known as
refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling-point, indeed so low,
that the warmth from the food stored in the fridge or freezer can
cause the refrigerant to boil and vaporise.
• Refrigerant Circuit
Closed circulation system that contains the refrigerant. The refrigerant circuit comprises primarily of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser and pipe work.
• Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Similar to all other
liquids, refrigerant requires heat to evaporate. This heat is removed
from the interior of the appliance, as a result the interior is cooled.
The evaporator is therefore located inside the appliance or placed in
foam immediately behind the inner wall and thus not visible.
• Compressor
The compressor looks like a small drum. It is driven by a built-in
electric motor and is mounted on the base of the appliance at the
rear. The task of the compressor is to draw in vaporised refrigerant
from the evaporator, to compress it, and to pass it on to the condenser.
• Condenser
The condenser normally has the form of a grid. The refrigerant compressed in the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. During this
process, heat is released to the surrounding air at the surface of the
condenser. The condenser is mounted on the base of the appliance.
