CLEANING THE REFRIGERATOR
Cleaning the Interior
Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild detergent and
then wipe dry with a soft cloth. You can remove the drawers and
shelves for a more thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry them
before putting them back into place.
Cleaning the Exterior
Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean, soft cloth.
Spray water onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly on
the surface of the refrigerator. This helps ensure an even distribution
of moisture to the surface. The doors, handles and cabinet surfaces
should be cleaned with a mild detergent and then wiped dry with a
soft cloth. To keep your appliance looking its best, the exterior should
be polished once or twice a year.
WARNING
Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox™ for cleaning.
They may damage the surface of the appliance and can create a risk of fire.
Home bar (optional)
-Press upper part of the home bar lightly to open its
door.
-Clean the home bar with wet cloth. Wipe it with
clean and soft cloth.
-Push upper part of the family home bar to close it
when hearing click sound.
Cleaning the Rubber door seals
If the rubber door seals are dirty the doors may not close properly, and
the refrigerator will not operate efficiently. Keep the door seals free of grit
or grime by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and damp cloth.
Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Do not spray the refrigerator with water while it is plugged
in, as it may cause an electric shock. Do not clean the
CAUTION
refrigerator with benzene, thinner or car detergent for risk of
fire.
USING THE DOORS
The refrigerator doors are equipped with a door opening and closing feature that ensures that the doors
close all the way and are securely sealed.
After opening beyond a certain point, the door will “catch” and remain open. When the door is ajar ahead of
the catch that allows it to stay open, it will close automatically.

PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The Refrigerator does
not work at all or it does
not chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a higher temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator so close to the wall that air cannot keep circulating?
The food in the
Refrigerator is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a warmer temperature.

• Did you store the food too close to the air vent at the back of the refrigerator? Move
the food away from the air vent.
You hear unusual noise
or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from
circulating?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. It is normal and occurs
because various accessories are contracting or expanding according to the
temperature of the refrigerator interior.
• A “bleep” alarm sound is heard. is the door of refrigerator or bar closed?
The front section of the
appliance are hot and
