Installation Your freezer needs air For correct operation this appliance must be located in a dry atmos- phere, away from heat sources, e.g. cookers, radiators, boilers and direct sunlight. You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back and the top of the cabinet.
Reversing the door The side at which the door opens can be changed from the right side (as supplied) to the left side, if the installation site requires. Warning! When changing the side at which the door opens, the appli- ance must not be connected to the mains.
Installation Electrical Connection Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person. WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety mea- sures not be observed. Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply voltage is the same as that indicated on the appliance rating plate.

(ACTUAL temperature) is displayed, the corresponding light illuminates. • If the temperature in the freezer is warmer than the display range of the temperature display, the red warning light flashes and all the lights in the temperature display are extinguished.
The red warning light illuminates and the warning tone sounds if the temperature in the freezer compartment is warmer than -12°C. An increase in the temperature in the freezer compartment may be caused by - frequent or extended opening of the door;...
The compressor will start and then run automatically. Information! When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place. Important! Wait until the freezer compartment has reached a temper- ature of -18°C before storing frozen food.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extin- guisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer. • Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst...
(1) and (2) equipped with its own refriger- ated shelves. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, oth- erwise the frozen food could begin to defrost. Freezer drawers (3) and (4) should only be used for storage of frozen food.
Preparation of Ice Cubes 1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer 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.
Remove pieces of ice that have fallen before they com- pletely defrost. 5. After defrosting, thoroughly clean the freezer compartment and interi- or fittings (see "Cleaning and Care" section). 6. Do not forget to switch the FROSTMATIC function off again.
6. After everything is dry, switch to FROSTMATIC function and switch off the audible warning signal. Immediately replace the previously removed food in the freezer. When the red warning light goes out, turn the FROSTMATIC function off. Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption.
Magnetic door seal After opening and closing the door of your freezer you will not be able to open the door again immediately. This is because a vacuum will have developed inside, keeping the door closed until the pressures inside and outside the door have equalised. After a few minutes you can easily reopen the door.
If your appliance needs repairing, please contact your specialist dealer or your local Service Force Centre. If the freezer system has stopped working and the freezer is full, the reserve in the deep frozen food itself will give the food a hold over time of about 22 hours.
Symptoms Heavy build up of frost, possibly also on the door seal. Unusual noises. The compressor does not start immediately after changing the temperature setting. Important: regularly check on the red temperature pilot light and tem- perature display to establish that the storage temperature is being maintained.
Regulations, Standards, Guidelines This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured in accordance with the appropriate standards. The necessary measures in accordance with appliance safety legislation regulations (GSG), acci- dent prevention regulations for refrigeration appliances (VBG 20) and the regulations of the German Society of Electrical Engineers (VDE) were observed in the manufacture of this appliance.
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.
