Appliance dimensions (mm)
Only operate the appliance with alternating current (AC). The permissible voltage and frequency are indicated on the type plate. The position of the type plate is shown in the section entitled
Description of the appliance.
The socket must be properly earthed and protected by a fuse. The tripping current of the fuse must be between 10 A and 16 A. The socket must not be situated behind the appliance and must be easily accessible.
Do not connect the appliance using an extension cable or extension socket.
Do not use stand-alone inverters (conversion of direct current to alternating current/three phase current) or energy-saving plugs. Risk of damage to the electronic control system!
Switching the appliance on and off
You are recommended to clean the interior of the appliance before switching it on for the first time (see Cleaning).
Switching the appliance on
Connect the appliance to the mains – the appliance is switched on.
Switching the appliance off
Pull out the mains plug or set the temperature control to 0.
When the temperature control is turned to “0”, the refrigeration system is switched off, but the appliance is not completely disconnected from the mains. Before cleaning, always disconnect the appliance from the mains. Remove the plug
Setting the temperature
Set the temperature inside the appliance using the temperature control.
The nearer the temperature control is to the max. setting, the colder the interior temperature.
Set the control between “0” and “max.” as required.

The temperature display is powered by a battery which is available from your specialist dealer.
Changing the battery
- Open the battery compartment using a small screwdriver.
- Replace the battery.
- Close the battery compartment.
If Er or HH appears in the display, the appliance has a fault. Consult the customer service department indicating the fault number displayed.
The grid shelves can be moved to accommodate different height bottles or packages.
High-percentage alcohols should be tightly sealed and stored upright.
The ventilation slots on the inside must not be covered!
The lock in the appliance door is equipped with a safety mechanism.
Locking the appliance
- Insert the key as shown by arrow 1.
- Turn the key 90°.
- To unlock the appliance, the same procedure must be repeated in the same order.
The refrigerator compartment defrosts automatically.
When operating at a very cold thermostat setting, the interior rear wall may ice up.
In this case, the appliance must be defrosted manually.
- Pull out the mains plug!
- Remove the food from the appliance and store in a cool place.
- Leave the door of the appliance open while defrosting. After defrosting mop up the remaining water and clean the appliance.
Do not use any mechanical devices or other artificial aids for defrosting other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
Clean the appliance at least twice per year.
Before cleaning always switch off the appliance. Pull out the mains plug or switch off or unscrew the fuse.
- Clean the inside, equipment and outer walls with lukewarm water and a little detergent. Do not use abrasive or acid cleaners or chemical solvents.
- Ensure that no cleaning water penetrates into the electrical components or ventilation grille.
- The dust should be removed from the refrigeration unit and heat exchanger – metal grid at the back of the appliance – once a year.
- Do not damage or remove the type plate on the inside of the appliance. It is very important for servicing purposes.
- Do not use steam cleaners because of the risk of injury and damage.
If a malfunction occurs during operation, check whether it is due to an operating error.
You may be able to rectify the following faults yourself:
- Appliance does not function:
- Is the appliance switched on?
- Is the plug correctly fitted in the mains socket?
- Is the fuse intact?
- Loud running noise:
- Is the appliance set up firmly on the floor?
- Does the appliance cause nearby items of furniture or objects to vibrate? Please note that noises caused by the refrigerant circuit cannot be avoided.
- The temperature is not low enough:
- Is the temperature setting correct (see “Setting the temperature”)?
- Have excessive amounts of fresh food been placed in the appliance?
- Does the separately installed thermometer show the correct reading?
- Is the ventilation system working properly?
- Is the appliance set up too close to a heat source?
If none of the above causes apply and you cannot rectify the fault yourself, contact the nearest customer service department stating the type designation 1, service number 2 and appliance number 3 as indicated on the type plate.
The position of the type plate is shown in the section entitled Description of the appliance.
