Start-up

NOTICE

Risk of damage caused by condensation

Installing the appliance next to any other refrigerator or freezer can cause condensation or damage to the Liebherr appliance.

u Do not install this appliance next to any other refrigerator or freezer except another Liebherr model. Liebherr models are designed to allow side-by-side installation. They are equipped with a heating system to eliminate condensation when refrigerators or freezers are installed side-by-side.

NOTICE

Risk of damage for the finished floor surface!

u Protect the finished floor surface before you uncrate the unit.

Verify that:

q The floor under the appliance is flat and level.

q The floor can support the appliance's weight plus approximately 1200 pounds (544 kg) of food weight.

q The appliance is not placed in direct sunlight or near the stove, range top, radiators and similar heat sources.

q The kitchen cabinet that the appliance is installed in is shimmed to the floor level if the floor heights are not equal.

q Cutout dimensions are accurate.

q Electrical outlet is in correct location.

q The air flow is not restricted. Air flow must be provided for the appliance to operate properly. The factory air vents provide 31 square inches (200 cm2) of air flow per appliance. If you are replacing the air vents with an overlay, the air flow must be the same or greater than the factory air vents.

u Examine the unit and packaging for shipping damage. Contact the carrier immediately if you suspect there is any damage.

u Note the type (model, number), index, appliance/serial number, date of purchase and where purchased (see 6.6) .

u Remove anything attached to the rear or side walls of appliance that would prevent proper installation or impede proper ventilation.

u Unscrew the red transport lock. Close the vacated retaining hole using the stopper (70).

Note

u Clean the appliance (see 6.2) .

If the appliance is set up in humid areas, condensation may build on the outside of the appliance.

u Always ensure proper ventilation.

4.3 Disposal of packaging

WARNING

Danger of suffocation from packaging materials and films! u Do not allow children to play with packaging materials.

The packaging is made from recyclable materials:

-Corrugated card/cardboard

-Parts made of foamed polystyrene

-Packing bands from polypropylene

-Wood frame nailed together with a polyethylene window*

Take the packaging material to an official collection

point.u

4.4 Connecting the appliance

WARNING

Electrical shock hazard!

u Start-up should only take place once the appliance has been installed according to these instructions.

u Electrically ground appliance. u Do not ground to a gas pipe.

u Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the appliance is properly grounded.

u Do not have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit. u Do not use an extension cord, power bar or a multiple

socket adapter.

u Do not use a power cord that is frayed or damaged.

WARNING

Electrical shock hazard!

This appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) polarized plug for your protection against possible shock hazards. Electrical Grounding Required.

u Do not remove the round grounding prong from the plug.

u Use only an grounded adapter.

-Wait 1 hour after installation before you plug in the appliance. This allows the refrigerant and system lubrication to reach equilibrium.

-Make sure incoming voltage is the same as the appliance rating. A 110-120 Volt, 60 Hz, 15 Amp electrical supply (20 Amp for side-by-side installations) circuit that is controlled by a circuit breaker or fuse is required.

-We recommend using a dedicated circuit for this appliance to prevent electrical overload.

-Follow all Federal, State and local electrical, fire and building codes and ordinances when installing the receptacle and / or the appliance.

-In some communities, a wall switch is required to turn power to the appliance ON and OFF.
