Dear customer, Before placing your new refrigerator/freezer into operation please read these operating instructions carefully. They contain important information 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. These operating instructions are for use with several technically com- parable models with varying accessories.
Safety The safety of our refrigerators/freezers is in accordance with recog- nised technological standards and appliance safety legislation. We nevertheless feel that it is important to acquaint you with the follow- ing safety guidelines: Intended use • The freezer is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the freezing of fresh food and storing frozen food, as well as for making ice.
Safety catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of suffoca- tion!) or get themselves into other dangerous situations. • Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household appliances.
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.
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 appliance.
Installation It is necessary to avoid overheating of the appliance by maintaining adequate distances from heat sources and by the use of a suitable thermal insulation plate. Proper ventilation of the appliance must also be ensured. Your freezer needs ventilation The refrigerating unit of your refrigerator is designed for maintenance-free opera- tion.
Installation 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 7. Remove the plugs (G) and fit them on the opposite side. 8. Insert the pin of the door bearing (1) into the left hand cavity and screw the bearing firmly into place with the screws (K). 9. Move the separate part (L) of the ven- tilation grille from the left to the right and fit it on the opposite side.
Installation Electrical Connection The plug socket necessary for connection of your appliance to the electricity supply should be positioned so that it is possible to pull out the appliance plug. If your appliance is installed under a continuous worktop, the plug socket should be provided as shown.
Ice packs There are two ice packs in one drawer of the freezer. Refer to the section “Prior to Initial Start–Up” concerning freezing of the ice packs. In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice packs will lengthen the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to defrost by several hours.
Operating and indicator panel The temperature regulator is also the ON/OFF switch. A coin is needed to turn the temperature regulator. This makes it is more difficult to change the temperature setting accidentally (child protection). temperature regulator (1) can be used for the variable setting of the storage tempera- ture for your frozen food.
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; - storing large quantities of warm food; - a high ambient temperature; - a malfunction in the cooling system.
1. Plug the mains plug into the mains socket. 2. Turn the thermostat control knob to the desired setting with the aid of a coin. The compressor starts and then runs automatically. The green light, the yellow light and the red light come on, the audible warning sounds (if fitted), and the refrigeration motor starts up.
Freezing and storing frozen food You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself. Important! • The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18°C or col- der before freezing food. • Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen within a period of 24 hours.
– special containers for frozen goods; – extra–thick aluminium foil. • The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap: 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.
Defrosting During use and when the door is opened, moisture is deposited as frost inside the appliance, particularly on the evaporator. This frost must be removed from time to time using the soft plastic scraper supplied. Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose. The freezer should always be defrosted when the layer of frost has reached a thickness of approx.

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.
