Sabbath mode available in selected Liebherr refrigerators

Sabbath mode is available in a select range of Liebherr refrigeration including both freestanding and fully integrated styles. By switching the appliance into this mode, it allows Shabbat observant Jews on the Shabbat and Jewish holidays to use their Liebherr refrigerator.

What happens when you switch on Sabbath mode?

When switching the appliance into this mode some functions of the electronic controls will be turned off.

In brief the following will occur once the mode has been switched on:

  • The menu display will not show any values (except S which denotes Sabbath mode)
  • All lights are switched off. This includes the display menu and interior lighting where applicable
  • Alarm signals will not sound
  • Fans will operate as per operation prior to the commencement of this mode. So if they were on, they will remain on. If they were off, they will remain off.
    Please note: the refrigerator will perform better with fans always switched on (unless you are on holidays and do not need to open the appliance doors).
  • The IceMaker switches off

How to activate Sabbath mode

Activating the mode literally involves the touch of a few buttons! But after 120 hours if the mode is not manually switched off, it will automatically switch itself off. Full details of how to activate the Sabbath mode are located in the ‘Operating Instructions’ located on our website.
