Dear customer, Before placing your new refrigerator/freezer into operation please read these operating instructions carefully. They contain important infor- mation for safe use, for installation and for care of the appliance. Please keep these operating instructions for future reference. Pass them on to possible new owners of the appliance.
Safety T he safety of our freezers is in accordance with recognised technological standards and appliance safety legislation. We nevertheless feel that it is important to acquaint you with the following safety guidelines: Use for Intended Purpose • The freezer is intended for household use. It is suitable for freezing and storage of frozen food.
Safety • 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 eliminates the danger that playing children lock themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place themselves into other life-endangering situations.
• For the electrician: Before carrying out any work on the freezer always pull out the mains plug or switch off/disengage the house- hold fuse. Disposal Appliance Packaging Information All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped or burned at an incinerating plant without danger! About the materials: The plastics can be recycled and are identified as follows:...
Installation Installation Location The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. The basement is an optimal place for chest freezers. Warning! The appliance may not be exposed to spray or splash water. Danger of electrical shock! Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
Appliance Alignment The appliance must have a solid, level footing. Please compensate for uneven floors with appropriate supports. Electrical Connection WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED Please ensure that the voltage and current indicated on the rating plate agree with the voltage of your electricity supply. 220/240 volts (i.
Warning! A cut-off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that the cut-off plug is disposed of safely. Voltage 220/240V AC Fuse rating 13 amps for further information. The rating plate is inside, o left.
– if the storage temperature required has not yet been reached when starting the freezer; if the storage temperature is no longer main- tained (malfunction); – after inserting fresh foodstuffs in a greater quantity than permitted by the freezing capacity (see section on “Freezing”); –...
Only place the ice packs to freeze on the floor of the freezer once the optimal storage temperature of -18 °C has been reached. After approx. 24 hours place the ice packs (if they were supplied with your model) onto the freezing trays which are inserted in the storage baskets hung at the top of the freezer.
Twist the temperature controller to position “2” to “3” using a coin. The following influences are of decisive importance for the internal temperature: – ambient temperature; – quantity of food stored; – frequent or prolonged opening of the lid. Therefore regularly monitor that the optimal storage temperature of –18 °C or colder is maintained, either using the thermometer or the digital temperature display depending on which model you have.
Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse. Defrost freezer compartment and clean thoroughly (see section: “Clean- ing and Care”). Then leave the lid open to avoid odours. Maximum capacity / Stacking limit Fig.
At this point, the yellow warning light lights up, the „SP” sign will appear on the display. (Fig. 11) The FAST FREEZE button need not be pressed for freezing of small quan- tities of up to 3 kg. All foods must be packed air tight 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.
The role of the pressure equalisation valve (not induded with all models) Fig. 12 The pressure equalisation valve installed in your machine performs automatically the elimination of the pressure difference which otherwisw would make the opening of the cover difficult or even im- possible.
• Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of other frozen goods can occur. • Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen goods.
Tip: To accelerate the defrosting process, place a saucepan with hot water in the appliance and close the lid. Remove pieces of ice that break away before defrosting is complete. After defrosting thoroughly clean the freezer interior, as well as inte- rior accessories (see section: “Cleaning and Care”).
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry. Attention! Reinsert the plug of the defrost water outlet at the base of the freezer after cleaning. After everything is dry place appliance back into service. Energy Saving Tips • Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators orother sources of warmth.

The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Like all fluids, re- frigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. Like all fluids, refrigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. This is why the evaporator is located inside the freezer or directly behind the interior walls and as a result is not visible.
