Only use this appliance: ¡ For chilling food. ¡ In private households and in enclosed spaces in a domestic en-vironment. ¡ Up to an altitude of max. 2000 m above sea level. 1.3Restriction on user group This appliance may be used by children aged 8 or over and by people who have reduced physical, sensory or mental abilities or inadequate experience and/or knowledge, provided that they are supervised or have been instructed on how to use the appliance safely and have understood the resulting dangers. Children must not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance must not be performed by children unless they are being supervised. Children above the age of three years old and younger than eight years old may load and unload the the fridge-freezer. 1.4Safe transportWARNING Risk of injury! The high weight of the appliance may result in injury when lifted. Do not lift the appliance on your own.4

Safetyen1.5Safe installation WARNING Risk of electric shock!Incorrect installation is dangerous. Connect and operate the appliance only in accordance with thespecifications on the rating plate. Connect the appliance to a power supply with alternating cur-rent only via a properly installed socket with earthing. The protective conductor system of the domestic electrical in-stallation must be properly installed. Never equip the appliance with an external switching device,e.g. a timer or remote control. When the appliance is installed, the mains plug of the powercord must be freely accessible. If free access is not possible, an all-pole isolating switch must be installed in the permanent electrical installation according to the installation regulations. When installing the appliance, check that the power cable is not trapped or damaged. If the insulation of the power cord is damaged, this is dangerous. Never let the power cord come into contact with heat sources.WARNING Risk of explosion! If the appliance’s ventilation openings are sealed, a leak in the refrigeration circuit may result in a flammable mixture of gas and air. Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in thebuilt-in structure, clear of obstruction. WARNING Risk of fire!It is dangerous to use an extended power cord and non-approved adapters. Do not use extension cables or multiple socket strips. If the power cord is too short, contact Customer Service. Only use adapters approved by the manufacturer. Portable multiple socket strips or portable power supply units may overheat and cause a fire. Do not place portable multiple socket strips or power supplyunits on the back of the appliance.5

enSafety1.6Safe use WARNING Risk of electric shock!An ingress of moisture can cause an electric shock. Only use the appliance in enclosed spaces. Never expose the appliance to intense heat or humidity. Do not use steam- or high-pressure cleaners to clean the appli-ance. WARNING Risk of suffocation!Children may put packaging material over their heads or wrap themselves up in it and suffocate. Keep packaging material away from children. Do not let children play with packaging material. Children may breathe in or swallow small parts, causing them to suffocate. Keep small parts away from children. Do not let children play with small parts.WARNING Risk of explosion! If the cooling circuit is damaged, flammable refrigerant may escape and explode. To accelerate the defrosting process, do not use any othermechanical devices or means other than those recommended by the manufacturer. If food is stuck to the freezer compartment, loosen it with a blunt implement such as the handle of a wooden spoon. Products which contain flammable propellants and explosive substances may explode, e.g. spray cans. Do not store products which contain flammable propellants (e.g. spray cans) or explosive substances in the appliance.WARNING Risk of fire! Electrical devices within the appliance may cause a fire, e.g. heaters or electric ice makers. Do not operate electrical devices within the appliance.6

SafetyenWARNING Risk of injury! Containers that contain carbonated drinks may burst. Do not store containers that contain carbonated drinks in thecool-fresh compartment. Injury to the eyes caused by escaping flammable refrigerant and hazardous gases. Do not damage the tubes of the refrigerant circuit or the insula-tion. CAUTION Risk of harm to health!To prevent food from being contaminated, you must observe the following instructions. If the door is open for an extended period of time, this may leadto a considerable temperature increase in the compartments of the appliance. Regularly clean the surfaces that may come into contact with food and accessible drain systems. Store raw meat and fish in suitable containers in the refrigerator so that they do not touch or drip on other food. If the fridge/freezer is empty for an extended period of time, switch off the appliance, defrost it, clean it and leave the door open to prevent the formation of mould. Metal or metal-style parts in the appliance may contain aluminium. If acidic food comes into contact with aluminium in the appliance, aluminium foil ions may pass into the food. Do not consume soiled food. 1.7Damaged applianceWARNING Risk of electric shock! If the appliance or the power cord is damaged, this is dangerous. Never operate a damaged appliance. Never pull on the power cord to unplug the appliance. Alwaysunplug the appliance at the mains. If the appliance or the power cord is damaged, immediately un-plug the power cord or switch off the fuse in the fuse box. Call customer services. Page 277

enSafetyIncorrect repairs are dangerous. Repairs to the appliance should only be carried out by trainedspecialist staff. Only use genuine spare parts when repairing the appliance. If the power cord of this appliance is damaged, it must be re-placed by the manufacturer, the manufacturer’s Customer Service or a similarly qualified person in order to prevent any risk.WARNING Risk of fire! If the tubes are damaged, flammable refrigerant and harmful gases may escape and ignite. Keep naked flames and ignition sources away from the appli-ance. Ventilate the room. Switch off the appliance.

11Refrigerator compart- Refrigeratorcompartment mentYou can keep dairy products, eggs, Refrigeratorcompartment prepared meals, pastries, open preserves and hard cheese in the refrigerator compartment. The temperature can be set from 3 °C to 8 °C. The refrigerator compartment can also be used to store highly perishable foods in the short to medium term. The lower the selected temperature, the longer the food remains fresh.11.1Tips for storing food in the refrigerator compartment¡ Only store food when fresh and undamaged.¡ Store food covered or in air-tight packaging.¡ Allow hot food and drinks to cool down first before placing in the appliance.¡ Observe the best-before date or use-by date specified by the manufacturer.11.2Chill zones in the refrigerator compartmentThe air circulation in the refrigerator compartment creates different chill zones. Coldest zone The coldest zone is on the partition and in the door rack for large bottles. Tip: Store highly perishable food such as fish, sausages and meat in the cool-fresh compartment. “Cool-fresh compartment”, Page 19


Warmest zone The warmest zone is at the very top of the door.Tip: Store food that does not spoil easily in the warmest zone, e.g. hard cheese and butter. Cheese can then continue to release its aroma and the butter will still be easy to spread.
