Installation location
Install the appliance in a dry, well ventilated room.
The installation location should neither be exposed
to direct sunlight nor near a heat source, e.g. a cooker,
radiator, etc. If installation next to a heat source is
unavoidable, use a suitable insulating plate or observe
the following minimum distances to a heat source:
■ 3 cm to electric or gas cookers.
■ 30 cm to an oil or coal-fired cooker.
If installing the appliance next to another refrigerator
or freezer, ensure a minimum lateral distance of 25 mm
to prevent the formation of condensation.
If a panel or cupboard is installed above the appliance,
ensure that a gap of 30 mm is left so that the appliance
can be pulled out of the recess if required.
The air heated on the rear side of the appliance must
be allowed to escape unhindered.
Subsurface
m Caution
The appliance is very heavy.
The weight of the appliance may be up to 165 kg
depending on the model.
The floor of the installation location must not give way;
if required, reinforce floor.
To ensure that the doors can open all the way, observe
lateral minimum distances when installing
the appliance in a corner or recess (see chapter
“Installation dimensions”).
If the depth of the adjacent kitchen equipment is more
than 60 cm, observe lateral minimum distances
in order to utilise the full door opening angle (see

Refrigerator compartment
m Caution
If the refrigerator compartment has become too warm,
cook warmed refrigerated food before consumption. If
in doubt, do not use raw food.
Usable capacity
Information on the usable capacity can be found inside
your appliance on the rating plate (see diagram at
chapter “Customer service”).
Fully utilising the freezer volume
To place the maximum amount of food in the freezer,
the top frozen food container can be taken out of
the appliance. The food can then be placed directly on
the shelves and stacked in the lower frozen food
container.
Freezer compartment
Use the freezer compartment
■ To store deep-frozen food.
■ To make ice cubes.
■ To freeze food.
Note
Ensure that the freezer compartment door has been
closed properly. If the door is open, the frozen food will
thaw. The freezer compartment will become covered in
thick ice. Also: waste of energy due to high power
consumption!
When the freezer compartment door is closed, a low
pressure occurs, causing a sucking noise. Wait two
to three minutes until the low pressure has adjusted
itself.
We recommend leaving the ice cube container
in the appliance. This ensures optimum temperature
distribution in the freezer compartment.
Purchasing frozen food
■ Packaging must not be damaged.
■ Use by the “use by” date.
■ Temperature in the supermarket freezer must be
-18 °C or lower.
■ If possible, transport deep-frozen food in an
insulated bag and place quickly in the freezer
compartment.

14
Freezing fresh food
Freeze fresh and undamaged food only.
To retain the best possible nutritional value, flavour and
colour, vegetables should be blanched before freezing.
Aubergines, peppers, zucchini and asparagus do not
require blanching.
Literature on freezing and blanching can be found
in bookshops.
Note
Keep food which is to be frozen away from food which
is already frozen.
■ The following foods are suitable for freezing:
Cakes and pastries, fish and seafood, meat, game,
poultry, vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs without shells,
dairy products such as cheese, butter and quark,
ready meals and leftovers such as soups, stews,
cooked meat and fish, potato dishes, soufflés and
desserts.
■ The following foods are not suitable for freezing:
Types of vegetables, which are usually consumed
raw, such as lettuce or radishes, eggs in shells,
grapes, whole apples, pears and peaches, hard-
boiled eggs, yoghurt, soured milk, sour cream,
crème fraîche and mayonnaise.
Packing frozen food
To prevent food from losing its flavour or drying out,
place in airtight containers.
1. Place food in packaging.
2. Remove air.
3. Seal the wrapping.
4. Label packaging with contents and date of freezing.
Suitable packaging:
Cling wrap, tubular film made of polyethylene,
aluminium foil, freezer containers.
These products are available from specialist outlets.
Unsuitable packaging:
Wrapping paper, greaseproof paper, cellophane, bin
liners and used shopping bags.
Items suitable for sealing packaged food:
Rubber bands, plastic clips, string, cold-resistant
adhesive tape, etc.
Bags and tubular film made of polyethylene (PE) can
be sealed with a film heat sealer.
Shelf life of frozen food
Storage duration depends on the type of food.
At a temperature of -18 °C:
■ Fish, sausage, ready meals and cakes and pastries:
up to 6 months
■ Cheese, poultry and meat:
up to 8 months
■ Vegetables and fruit:
up to 12 months
Super freezing
Food should be frozen solid as quickly as possible
in order to retain vitamins, nutritional value, appearance
and flavour.
Several hours before placing fresh food in the freezer
compartment, switch on super freezing to prevent
an unwanted temperature rise.
As a rule, 4–6 hours is adequate.
This appliance runs constantly and the freezer
compartment drops to a very low temperature.
If the max. freezing capacity is to be used, super
freezing must be switched on for 24 hours before the
fresh produce is placed in the freezer compartment.
You can freeze smaller quantities of food (up to 2 kg)
without fast freezing.
Note
When super freezing is switched on, increased
operating noises may occur.
Switching on super freezing
1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the freezer
compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow.
2. Press “super” button.
If “super freezing” is switched on, “SU” and “super” are
indicated on the display panel.
Switching off super freezing
1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the freezer
compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow.
2. Press “super” button.

Thawing frozen food
Depending on the type and application, select one
of the following options:
■ at room temperature
■ in the refrigerator
■ in an electric oven, with/without fan assisted hot-air
■ in the microwave
m Caution
Do not refreeze thawing or thawed food. Only ready
meals (boiled or fried) may be refrozen.
No longer store the frozen produce for the max.
storage period.
Refrigerator compartment
The refrigerator compartment is the ideal storage
location for meat, sausage, fish, dairy products, eggs,
ready meals and pastries.
Storing food
■ Store fresh, undamaged food. The quality and
freshness will then be retained for longer.
■ In the case of ready-made products and bottled
goods, observe the best-before date or use-by date
specified by the manufacturer.
■ To retain aroma, colour and freshness, pack
or cover food well before placing in the appliance.
This will prevent the transfer of flavours and the
discolouration of plastic parts in the refrigerator
compartment.
■ Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before
placing in the appliance.
Note
Avoid contact between food and rear panel. Otherwise
the air circulation will be impaired.
Food or packaging could freeze to the rear panel.
Note the chill zones in the refrigerator
compartment
The air circulation in the refrigerator compartment
creates different chill zones:
■ Coldest zone is between the vegetable container and
the glass shelf situated above.
Note
Store perishable food (e.g. fish, sausage, meat)
in the coldest zone above the vegetable container.
■ Warmest zone is at the very top of the door.
Note
Store e.g. hard cheese and butter in the warmest
zone. Cheese can then continue to release its flavour
and the butter will still be easy to spread.
“Cool-fresh” container
Foods suitable for “cool-fresh” container:
In principle all foods which are fresh and are to remain
fresh for even longer, such as: fish, seafood, meat
and sausage, dairy products, and ready meals.
Foods not suitable for the “cool-fresh” drawer:
Fruit and vegetables sensitive to cold (e.g.: tropical fruit
such as pineapples, bananas, papaya, citrus fruits,
melons as well as tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini,
capsicums, cucumbers, potatoes).
The ideal storage location for these foods is
the refrigerator compartment.
Vegetable container with humidity
controller
To create the optimum storage climate for fruit and
vegetables, you can set the air humidity in the
vegetable container depending on the quantity stored:
■ smaller quantities of fruit and vegetables – high air
humidity
■ large quantities of fruit and vegetables – low air
humidity

■ Fruit sensitive to cold (e.g. pineapple, banana,
papaya and citrus fruit) and vegetables sensitive
to cold (e.g. aubergines, cucumbers, zucchini,
peppers, tomatoes and potatoes) should be stored
outside the refrigerator at temperatures of approx.
+8 °C to +12 °C for optimum preservation of quality
and flavour.
■ Condensation may form in the vegetable container
depending on the type and quantity of products
stored. Remove condensation with a dry cloth and
adjust air humidity in the vegetable container with
the humidity controller.
Super cooling
Super cooling sets the refrigerator temperature
to the coldest temperature setting for approx. 6 hours.
Then the appliance automatically switches
to the temperature set prior to super cooling mode.
Switch on super cooling mode, e.g.
■ before placing large quantities of food
in the refrigerator compartment.
■ for the fast cooling of drinks.
Note
When super cooling is switched on, increased
operating noises may occur.
Switching on super cooling
1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the
refrigerator compartment climate zone is marked
with an arrow.
2. Press “super” button.
If “super cooling” is switched on, “SU” and “super” are
indicated on the display panel.
Switching off super cooling
1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the
refrigerator compartment climate zone is marked
with an arrow.
2. Press “super” button.
If super cooling is switched off, the “SU” and “super”
displays go out on the display panel.
Ice and water dispenser
The following can be dispensed as required:
■ cooled water,
■ crushed ice,
■ ice cubes.
m Warning
Never reach into the ice cube dispenser opening! Risk
of injury!
m Caution
Do not place bottles or food in the cube container
in order to cool them quickly. The ice maker may block
and be damaged.
* Not all models.
Using the ice and water dispenser
The ice and water dispenser only works when
the appliance is connected to the water mains.
When the appliance has been switched on, it takes
approx. 24 hours until the first batch of ice cubes are
ready.
When the appliance has been connected, there are still
air bubbles in the lines.
Run off drinking water and pour away until water can be
dispensed without bubbles. Pour away the first 5
glasses.
When using the ice maker for the first time, do not use
the first 30-40 ice cubes for reasons of hygiene.
Operating the ice maker
As soon as the freezer compartment has reached its
freezing temperature, ice cube production starts. After
2–3 hours the ready ice cubes are automatically
discharged into the ice cube container.
Note
The appliance produces more ice if you lower the
freezer compartment temperature. This will slightly
increase the energy consumption of your appliance.
Occasionally ice cubes will freeze together and block
the dispenser:
1. Open the door and check inside whether ice cubes
are sticking to the ice and water dispenser.
2. If the ice and water dispenser is not blocked:
m Caution
A full ice cube container is heavy!
■ Carefully pull out ice cube container and remove ice
cubes which are frozen together.
When the ice cube container is full, ice making
switches off automatically.
When ice cubes are being made, the buzzing water
valve, the water flowing into the ice cube tray and
the falling ice cubes can be heard.

Observing drinking water quality
All materials used in the drinks dispenser are odourless
and tasteless.
If the water has an aftertaste, this may be caused by:
■ Mineral and chlorine content of the drinking water.
■ Material of the domestic water line and connection
line.
■ Freshness of the drinking water. If water has not
been dispensed for a long time, the water may have
a “stale” taste. In this case fill approx. 15 glasses
of water and throw away.
We recommend that you regularly dispense a little
fresh water from the water maker and that you do not
switch off the appliance. This will ensure that the best
water quality is retained.
The enclosed water filter will filter only particles out
of the supply water, not bacteria or microbes.
Dispensing ice/water
■ Select the ice and water dispenser button (water,
crushed ice or ice cubes).
■ Keep pressing the button until the required quantity
is in the glass.
Dispensing water
Note
The water from the water dispenser is cooled
to a palatable temperature. If you would like the water
colder, place ice cubes in the glass before dispensing
the water.
Note
When dispensing fairly large amounts of water, the
dispensed water may become warmer.
Dispensing ice
Disconnecting the ice maker
If ice cubes are not to be dispensed for longer than
1 week (e.g. holiday), temporarily disconnect the ice
cube maker to prevent the ice cubes from freezing
together.
To disconnect the ice maker:
1. Remove the ice cube container.
2. Keep pressing the “options” button, until
the [IWD off] function is marked with an arrow.
3. Activate by pressing the setting button + (function is
framed).
4. Empty and clean ice cube container. Re-attach
the ice cube container. Ensure that the ice cube
container engages with the support.
Switching on the ice cube maker again:
1. Keep pressing the “options” button, until
the [IWD off] function is marked with an arrow.
2. Deactivate by pressing the setting button - (function
is no longer framed).

Water filter
m Warning
Do not use the appliance in places where the water
quality is risky or not sufficiently known about without
suitable disinfection, before and after filtering.
A filter cartridge for filtering particles can be obtained
from customer service or a specialist dealer.
m Caution
■ After installing a new filter, always discard the ice
produced within the first 24 hours after switching on
the ice maker.
■ If the ice has not been used for a prolonged period,
pour all ice cubes out of the container and also
discard the ice produced within the next 24 hours.
■ If the appliance or the ice has not been used actively
for several weeks or months or if the ice cubes have
an unpleasant taste or odor, change the water filter.
■ Air trapped in the system may cause water
to escape and the filter cartridge to be ejected.
Caution when removing.
■ The filter must be changed at least every 6 months.
Important information concerning
the water filter
■ After use, the water system is subject to low
pressure. Be careful when removing the filter!
■ Rinse the water system through if the appliance has
not been used for a long period, or if the water
tastes or smells unpleasant. In addition to this, draw
water from the water dispenser for several minutes. If
the unpleasant taste or smell persists exchange
the filter.
Exchanging the filter cartridge
After 6 months you are prompted via the [filter change]
display message to change the filter cartridge (see
chapter “Special functions”).
Take out the filter cartridge as follows:
■ Insert new filter cartridge.
■ Draw a few litres of water from the water dispenser.
Doing this removes air from the water system.
■ Pour water out of the used filter cartridge. The filter
cartridge can be disposed of in the household
rubbish.
Use locking cap
The ice and water dispenser can also be used without
a water filter. In this case, fit the locking cap.
Note
The locking cap and the filter screen inside should be
rinsed out under running water at regular intervals.
