Prior to Initial Start–Up

1 Before connecting the appliance to the mains and putting it into operation for the first time, leave the appliance to stand for 30 minutes if was transported upright. After transport on its side, the appliance must be left to stand for 2 hours before putting it into operation. This is necessary to allow the refrigerant to flow back into the compressor. Otherwise the compressor may be damaged.

01. Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial start-up (see section: “Maintenance and Cleaning”).

2.The appliance must be correctly installed in accordance with the chapter "Installation" before it is put into operation for the first time. Care should be especially taken that the mains voltage and frequency available correspond with the appliance’s rating plate.

Initial Start-Up

01. Insert plug into mains socket.

2.Press ON/OFF button.

The compressor starts and then runs automatically.

3.Set temperature to +5 °C or colder (see section: "Temperature Adjustment").

3 Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on, because the storage temperature in the refrigerator is quickly reached.

Temperature Adjustment

With the buttons for temperature adjustment the desired temperatures in the refrigerator can be adjusted.

0 1. Press either the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button.

The temperature display switches over and the DESIRED temperature currently set flashes on the temperature display.

2.To adjust to a warmer temperature, press the „+“ (WARMER) button. To adjust to a colder temperature, press the „-“ (COLDER) button. The changed setting is immediately displayed on the temperature display.

Each time the button is pressed the temperature is adjusted by 1 °C. Adjustable temperature range: +2 °C to +8 °C, +15 °C (Holiday mode)

16

818 35 69-02/2

Note: From a food safety point of view, +5 °C for the refrigerator compartment should be considered cold enough as a storage temperature.

3 When the buttons are not further pressed after an adjustment has been made, after a short period (approx. 5 sec.) the temperature display switches over and again displays the ACTUAL temperature in the refrigerator. The display changes from flashing to illuminated numbers.

Information! When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place.

Switching the Appliance off

01. To switch off, push and hold the ON/OFF button for approx. 5 seconds. This will result in a countdown from "3" to "1" taking place in the temperature display. On reaching "1" the fridge will switch off. The temperature display will go off.

3 The appliance is only completely disconnected from the electricity supply when the power plug has been removed from the power outlet.

Note:

The appliance cannot be switched on or off if unplugged, or if there is no power being supplied to it.

Following connection to the mains power supply, the appliance returns to the same operating state as before the interruption of main power.

If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:

01. Switch off the appliance, to do this press the ON/OFF button (see above).

2.Remove the mains plug.

3.Clean the appliance thoroughly (see section: "Maintenance and Cleaning").

4.Leave door open to avoid accumulation of odours.

818 35 69-02/2

17

Holiday Mode

In the holiday mode the temperature for the refrigerator is approximately +15 °C. In the holiday mode it is therefore possible to leave the door of the empty refrigerator closed during periods of extended absence. Advantage: Unintentional closing of the door, or accidental closing of the door by persons who have access to your home during your absence, is no longer possible. Without the holiday mode leaving the door closed would lead to the accumulation of odours and mould.

After emptying and cleaning the appliance, proceed as follows:

01. To set the holiday mode, press the „+“ (WARMER) or „-“ (COLDER) button.

The temperature display will change and indicate in flashing numbers the DESIRED temperature that is currently set.

2.Hold down the „+“ (WARMER) button until the temperature display indicates H (for holiday). The temperature shown in the temperature display will change in steps of 1 °C until it reaches +8 °C. After +8 °C the value +15 °C will appear in the display with the letter H. The fridge is now operating in energy-saving holiday mode.

3 Tobutton.switch the fridge back to normal operation, press the „-“ (COLDER)

Important! Do not store any goods in the refrigerator when the holiday mode is in operation. The temperature is regulated at about +15 °C when the holiday mode is in operation. This is too warm for food products.

Opening the Door

If the door is closed when the appliance is in operation, it cannot be immediately opened again, because a vacuum occurs which holds the door closed until pressure has been equalised. The door can be opened again after several minutes.

18

818 35 69-02/2

Control and Information Systems

The control and information systems consist of the temperature display, an optical warning display and an acoustic warning.

The system warns if:

if the appliance door remains open for longer than 5 minutes;

if the temperature in the fridge compartment is too warm;

functional errors at the appliance.

"Open Door" Warning

If the fridge door is left open for longer than 5 minutes the red warning display will flash and an acoustic warning tone will sound.

If you need more time to load or rearrange refrigerated foods, you can switch off the warning tone by pressing the ALARM OFF button.

The red warning display will go off when the door is closed.

Temperature warning

The red warning light flashes and a warning tone sounds, as soon as the temperature in the refrigerator is warmer than 12 °C. Such a rise in temperature can possibly be put down to:

opening the door a lot or leaving it open for a long time;

storing larger quantities of warm food;

a fault with the appliance.

You can turn off the warning tone using the ALARM OFF button. The warning light and the warning tone switch off automatically,

when the ACTUAL temperature existing in the refrigerator drops below 12 °C again.

Function Errors

If the appliance electronics detects a technical fault that needs to be rectified by customer service, the temperature display shows a square in the upper part of the temperature display. The red warning indicator flashes. The appliance will continue to operate in emergency mode.

Proper Storage

The cooling fan ensures an even temperature distribution in the fridge. There is a max. temperature difference of 1 °C. Foods with different lengths of storage time can therefore be arranged on the shelves as you like, without having to take into account the different temperature zones which usually occur. The temperature in the fruit and vegetable drawer is around 3 - 4 °C higher than the fridge temperature set. The example arrangement opposite shows possible ways of storing food.

The shelf immediately above the fruit and vegetable tray should be 5 °C for safe storage of meat and fish products. In order to check that the appliance is at 5 °C on the lowest shelf you can carry out the following test yourself:

01. Place a cup of water in the centre of the said shelf with a thermometer inside.

2.Leave the fridge door closed overnight and check the temperature first thing in the morning.

3.At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does, you need to adjust the temperature to a colder setting.

For further information on keeping food cool and safe a guide published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is available and can be obtained free of charge by contacting:

Foodsense, London SE99 7TT. Tel: 0645 556000

Tip: Food stored in the refrigerator compartment should always be covered or packed so that they do not dry out, lose their flavour, or transfer their flavour to any other refrigerated food. The following are suitable for packing:

polyethylene bags;

plastic containers with lids;

special plastic covers with rubber retainers;

aluminium foil.

Hints and Tips

Normal Operating Sounds

You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling plate/evaporator.

When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.

A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint click when the thermostat cuts in and out.

Food Storage

To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator:

Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.

Do not store food uncovered.

Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.

Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item.

2Energy Saving Advice

Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or radiator.

Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure that the air openings of the appliance are not obstructed.

Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before placing in the fridge.

Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the door too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.

Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing properly.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply.

Internal Cleaning

01. Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly.

1Warning!

Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or cleaning products containing bleach or alcohol.

2.Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from debris.

External Cleaning

1 Warning!

Do not use abrasive products

There are sharp edges on the underside of the product so care should be taken when cleaning.

1Important: Do not use cleaning agents for stainless steel or other aggressive or abrasive cleaning agents. The protective coat of lacquer on the stainless steel surface can be damaged by these.

The coat of lacquer protects against finger prints and therefore additional cleaning agents and maintenance products are no longer required.

01. Clean the appliance with a cloth and lukewarm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also be used. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

2 Accumulation of dust at the condenser reduces cooling performance and 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.

2. After everything is dry place appliance back into service.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Changing the carbon filter

To maintain the best performance the carbon filter should be changed once a year with normal usage.

New carbon filters can be purchased from your local Service Force Centre.

0 1. The filter is placed behind the grill and can be reached by opening the cover. The cover can be opened by simultaneously pressing the lever on the right of the grill

(1) and pulling the cover outward

(2).

2. The carbon filter is then pulled out of its slot (3).

3. The new carbon filter is placed in the existing slot.

1 The filter should be handled carefully so fragments do not loosen from the surface.

Replacing the Light Bulb

1 Warning! Danger of electrical shock! Before replacing the light bulb switch appliance off and remove the mains plug.

Light bulb specifications: 220-240 V, max. 25 W, fitting: E 14

Important!

When replacing the lamp only fit a lamp of suitable diameter, that is at

least 18 mm, this will ensure a good seat on the rubber seal.

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.
