Startup / Operation
Prior to first use
After transport, the appliance should be left standing upright for four hours before connecting to the power supply. Nonobservance could lead to malfunction of the cooling system and causes an appliance breakdown.
Clean the appliance interior including all accessory parts. Consider the instructions which we provide in the chapter “Cleaning and Maintenance”.
Starting the appliance
- Connect the appliance to the power supply.
- Operate the temperature control. See also the section “Settings”.
Setting [ 0 ] means that the appliance is in the off state. Turn the temperature control clockwise, starting from this setting; the appliance will turn on automatically.
The power levels [ 1 – 7 ] regulate the different values of the internal temperature.
|Setting 0: Off state
Power level 1 + 2 :
lowest level → warmest internal temperature
Power level 3 + 4 :
medium level → optimal operating temperature
Power level 5 + 6 + 7* :
highest level → coldest internal temperature
*Beware of high setting because the maximum level may already mean “freezing point”
|The temperature of the freezer is automatically controlled by the power level setting in the fridge.|
Basically, the temperature changes depending on the ambient temperature (place of installation), the frequency of opening the door and the equipment.
During initial operation, adjust the lowest possible temperature (= highest power level) first, until the appliance has reached the desired operating temperature. Afterwards it is recommended to turn the control back to a medium setting; correcting the temperature at a later point would then be easier.
In generally a medium power level works best for an optimized food storage. A high power level also increases the energy consumption.
When opening the appliance door, the interior light will turn on automatically.
To guarantee that the temperature is low enough, you should pre-cool the appliance a few times before initial loading foods.
Always pay attention to the storage instructions on the sales packaging.
|To avoid contamination of food, respect the following instructions:
Depending on requirements, shelves/drawers (partially and depending on model) can be adjusted in height or removed to optimize the storage space.
For the most efficient use of energy, place all shelves/drawers in their original position.
Always store food covered or packed to prevent drying-out and transfer of odor or taste onto other food items. You may pack the food with e.g.
- Polyethylene plastic bags or foil
- Plastic bowl with lid
- Special plastic covers with elastic strip
- Aluminum foil
Temperature zones and storage recommendations
The optimal cooling temperature is around 5∼7 degrees for the central area of the cooling.
Different cooling zones are created by the air circulation. Regardless of the power level, cold air drops off.
- The coldest zone is on the cooling rear wall and in the lower cooling part. Recommended for storing perishable foods such as meat, fish and sausages at around 2∼3 degrees.
- About that it becomes less cold. For dairy products such as yoghurt, cheese and co., the center of the cooling is just the right temperature at around 5 degrees.
- Well-packed leftovers or preserves needs less cooling. The upper cooling part at around 6∼8 degrees could be the right place.
- The cooling door is one of the warmest locations. The upper racks are good location for food that needs moderate cooling, such as butter and eggs. There is space for drinks in the lower door racks.
- The vegetable box (depending on model) is suitable for fruit and vegetables at a temperature of around 8 degrees, depending on the cooling temperature. To ensure that delicate fruits and vegetables feel good, a glass shelf above avoids the falling cold.
The 4-star freezer allows you to store frozen food at a temperature of ≤ -18°C for several months; to produce ice cubes and to freeze fresh food.
Make sure that the temperature in the freezer does not rise above -18°C. For this, the unit should be defrosted regularly. A thick frozen layer deteriorates the cooling and increases the power consumption.
- Fresh food should be frozen as fast as possible to the core. During freezing operation, the temperature of fresh food should be lowered as fast as possible to keep formation of ice crystals as little as possible and not to damage the food structure.
- Frozen food should be kept in contact with the bottom of the compartment.
- Keep a space between the individual items, so that the cold air can circulate.
Storing frozen food
- Packed frozen merchandise should be stored in accordance with the manufacturer’s data. Make sure the food items do not defrost after purchase and to store them as fast as possible in the freezer.
- It is possible to store food for longer periods of time. The period might vary, so observe the storage information on the packaging of the merchandise.
General safety precautions
- Do not store bottles or cans. These can break when the contents freeze – or even explode if they contain carbonated drinks.
- Once products have been defrosted halfway or completely, they should be consumed as soon as possible and should not be frozen again, except they have been processed to a ready meal.
- Do not eat food that is still frozen. Do not eat ice cream directly from the freezer. The cold can cause injuries in the oral cavity.
- Touching metal parts inside the unit can cause symptoms like burns if the skin is very sensitive.
- Never touch frozen food with moist or wet hands.
|Type of sound||Cause|
|Mumbling||Compressor during its operation|
|Liquid sounds||Circulation of the refrigerant|
|Click sounds||The temperature control turns the compressor on or off|
|Disturbing noises||Vibration of the shelves or cooling coils|
To switch off the appliance turn the temperature control to the off state.
If the appliance is out of use for long periods:
- Remove the appliance content.
- Disconnect the power supply.
- Defrost (model dependent) and clean the appliance thoroughly (see ”Cleaning and Maintenance”).
- Leave open the appliance door to avoid formation of mold and unpleased odors.
Tips for Energy saving
- Disconnect the appliance from the power supply if it isn’t in use.
- Do not install the appliance near stoves, heaters or other heat sources. In case of higher ambient temperatures, the compressor will run more frequently and longer.
- Ensure enough ventilation at the bottom and rear side. Never block ventilation openings.
- Place all shelves, racks or drawers (depending on model) in their original position.
- Adjust the temperature not colder than necessary.
- Allow warm food to cool before placing it in the appliance.
- Open the unit door only as necessary.
- Defrost the unit regularly (model dependent).
- The seal of the appliance door must be completely intact, so that the door closes properly.
Cleaning and Maintenance
- Always disconnect the appliance from the power supply before cleaning and user maintenance.
- Do not use steam cleaners for cleaning the appliance; moisture could enter electrical components. Risk of electric shock! Hot steam could damage the plastic parts.
- The unit must be dry before restarting operation.
- Do not use a wire brush or other sharp, abrasive items.
- Do not use any acidic or abrasive detergents.
- Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Cleaning the appliance including interior
- Clean the appliance interior, the exterior surfaces, the accessories and the door seal regularly with warm water and mild detergent; or with a clean, damp microfiber cloth without cleaning agent.
- Remove the appliance content and storage it at a cool location.
- Clean the thaw water discharge channel / opening carefully e.g. with a pipe cleaner.
- After everything was thoroughly dried, you can restart the operation.
- Depending on model: Wipe at least once a year the dust that has accumulated on the appliance back and condenser (metal grille). To do this, use a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner.
Never use metal objects (e.g. knifes) to remove ice from the evaporator. Otherwise it can be damaged.
The fridge compartment has a semi-automatic defrosting system. During defrosting water drops drains off at the back of the cooling chamber. The thaw water running through a channel, is collected in a drip tray located on the compressor, where it will
evaporate. Make sure the water discharge opening does not get clogged. A light formation of ice on the interior back during operation is normal.
A permanently high power level can lead to increased ice formation. In this case, the fridge compartment can be defrosted manually → set a lower power level.
To achieve better cooling and to save energy, defrost the freezer regular manually as follows:
- To start the defrosting process, turn the temperature control to the off state and disconnect the plug or turn off the fuse.
- Remove the food items and keep covered at a cool location.
- When the ice has melted, wipe the condensate away and dry the appliance interior.
- Then you may restart the appliance by connecting the plug and adjusting the power level.
