Starting up and temperature regulation

Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0,5 litre of water). Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.

When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the internal lighting is switched on. The temperature control knob is located on the right hand side of the refrigerator compartment.

Setting “0”: Off.

Setting “1”: Hightest temperature, (warmest setting).

Setting “6” (end-stop) : Lowest temperature, (coldest setting).

The exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside the refrigerator depends on:

-the quantity of food stored

-how often the door is opened

The temperatures in the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment cannot be independently regulated.

If you want to freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting “6”, ensuring that the temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop below 0°C. You should reset the temperature control knob to setting “3” or “4”, if this does occur.

As soon as the fresh food placed in the freezer has frozen, return the temperature control knob to “3” or “4”.

Important!

High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on the temperature regulator (position"5" to "6") can cause the compressor to run continuously.

If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer setting (position "3" to "4"). At this setting the compressor will be switched on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.

Ambient Temperature switch

With a room temperature below

 

+16°C the Fridge freezer may not

 

function correctly. If the room tem-

 

perature is lower than +16°C it will

A

be necessary to depress switch (A).

 

The relevant pilot light comes on.

Interior Accessories

Storage Shelves

The glass shelf above the fruit and vegetable compartment should always remain in position, to ensure fruit and vegetables stay fresh longer.

The remaining storage shelves can be adjusted to various heights:

Pull the storage shelf forward until it D338 can be tipped up or down and remo-

ved.

To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse. Adjustment for tall goods:

Remove the front half of the two-part vario glass storage shelf and insert it at a different level. Space is thus gained for storage of tall goods on the underlying storage shelf.

Variable Inner Door

The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at other positions as needed.

Fresh food refrigeration

To obtain the best performance:

do not store warm food or evaporating liquid in the refrigeator

do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.

Position food so that air can circuiate freely round it.

Useful hints:

Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer(s)

For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the most.

Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc: these should be covered and may be placed on any shelf.

Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.

Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or

wapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.

Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack on the door.

Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not in airtight containers, must not be kept in the refrigerator.

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 colder 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. If you wish to freeze food several days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the rating plate. 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.

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, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.

Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. 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.

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.

Important! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could stick to the food.

1.Place the packed food in the drawers. Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.

2 Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.

20

Ice pack

There is an ice pack in one drawer of the freezer.

In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice pack will lengthen the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to become too warm by several hours. The ice pack can only fulfil this task efficiently if it is placed in the uppermost drawer, at the front, above the frozen food. You can use the ice pack for cooling cold bags.

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 twist 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. Use the ice scraper supplied.

Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar

The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods.

The numbers indicate storage times

in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and pre-treating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with high fat content.

Installation Location

This appliance should only be installed at a location where the ambient temperature corresponds to the climate classification indicated on the rating plate, which is located on the inside left of the appliance.

The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for each climate classification.

2.The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal marked “N” or coloured black.

3.The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked “L” or coloured red.

4.Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray strands of wire present and the cord clamp must be secure over the outer sheath.

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.

Defrosting

Refrigerator

Frost is automatically removed from the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water drains out through a trough into a special container at the back of the appliance, located over the motor compressor, where it evaporates.

Freezer

The freezer compartment, however, will become progressively covered with frost. This should be removed with the special plastic scraper provided, whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm. During this operation it is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.

However when the ice becomes very thick on the inner liner, complete defrosting should be carried out as follows:

1.Remove the frozen food from the freezer, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and put it in a very cool place.

2.Switch off the appliance and pull out the plug, or turn the temperature control knob to “0”.

3.Leave the freezer compartment door open.

4.Insert the plastic scraper into the recess provided under the defrost water channel and place a collecting basin under it.

5.Once defrosting is completed keep the scraper handy for future use;

6.Turn the thermostat knob to the required setting or replace the plug in the power socket.

Warning!

Never use metal tools to scrape off the frost

Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial means to speed up the thawing process other than those recommended by the manufacturer.

A temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.
