Here are the features of your new refrigerator.
■ Lamp cover
Take a moment to know all the features designed for the convenience
of the user.
To remove the lamp cover
1. Push up the bottom end of lamp cover gently,
then pull out.
2. Reverse procedure to join together.
■ Movable refrigerator and freezer shelves
Storage shelves should be adjusted depending on the height of the food
stored. To do this, pull the shelves slightly forward.
■ Vegetable case
May be used for fruit and vegetable storage. Both
the vegetable case and its cover shelf are
removable for easy cleaning. Simply slide forward
to remove.
■ Defrost-drain Vessel
Since dust accumulated on the drain case decreases the evaporation
efficiency, you should clean the drain case at regular intervals.
■ Ice Case Frame Assembly
1) Fill the ice case with water upto the water level line and insert it into the
designated space in the ice holder.
2) After the water is completely frozen, twist the ice case handle clockwise
and let the ice fall into the ice box below. When all ice has been cleared
from the ice case, let go of the handle which will return to its original
position by a return spring installed.
■ Utility Pocket (Top)
The Egg Case in this pocket can be turned upside down for the storage of
small size goods.
■ For lock installed refrigerators only.

METHODS OF SAFE INSTALLATION
1. SAFE INSTALLATION PLACE FOR YOUR REFRIGERATOR
• Place the refrigerator on
a strong and level floor.
Unstable installation can
produce noise and
vibration.
• Place your refrigerator
where there is no heat
source nearby.
High atmosphere
temperature will lower
cooling efficiency and
increase your electricity
bill.
• Place the refrigerator in
an area where the
humidity level is low.
Splashing water on the
refrigerator or installing
the unit in a humid area
may cause short circuit
and rust.
2. INSTALLATION STEPS

• Avoid places that are
exposed to coal gas or
smoke, or discoloring
may occur on the
refrigerator.
• For good ventilation,
keep enough space
between the sidewalls
and your.
This helps to cool
efficiently and lowers the
electricity bill.
• Putting the refrigerator
on the carpet may cause
temperature rise and
result in the discoloring
of the carpet due to the
compressor heat.
In such a case, place a
hard wooden board or a
rubber mat between the
carpet and the unit.
• Check if the doors are
completely closed.
• Check the voltage.
Then wait about an hour
before plugging the
power cord into the
outlet.

3. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE MOVING
OR RELOCATING THE REFRIGERATOR!
• Unplung the power cord.
• Detach the grille and the
defrost-drain vessel from
the refrigerator with ⊕
driver and then remove
water from the defrostdrain vessel located at
the rear of the
refrigerator.
• Take food out of the
refrigerator.
4. CLEANING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
• Before you clean the
refrigerator, unplug the
power cord. To clean,
use a soft piece of cloth.
Wash with warm, soapy
water rinse and dry.
• The refrigerator may
smell during the initial
operation, but the odour
will fade away when the
refrigerator is cooled
sufficiently.
• Use a soft cloth for
cleaning the interior and
exterior of the
refrigerator.

HOW TO INSTALL
HOW TO OPERATE
1. TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Location
Install the refrigerator in a convenient location away from extreme heat and
cold. Allow at least 6cm clearance between the refrigerator and side wall so
that the door may open for a fully usable interior and the refrigerator may
have good air circulation. The refrigerator is not designed for recessed
installation.
Temperature is controlled by thermostat automatically.
The Temperature Control inside the refrigerator controls the degree of
cooling for each compartment.

is available only if atmosphere
temperature is below 10°C.
Starting your new refrigerator
Level the refrigerator so that it rests solidly on the floor without rocking.
There are two leveling feet at each front corner. Turn to the left to raise a
corner, to the right to lower it. Use shims under the rear corners, if
necessary.
■ If you want the refrigerator door to close naturally, adjust the leveling feet so
1. Clean the refrigerator thoroughly. Wipe the outside with a dry cloth, and the inside
with a damp cloth.
2. Set the temperature control knob at normal position.
3. Connect the power supply cord.
that the front of the refrigerator is raised by 5mm.
■ If you want the refrigerator to remain motionless when open, adjust the leveling
feet so that all four corners are leveled with each other.
All packing materials used to ensure safety during transport should be
removed. You must remove the transport safty packing and wipe off any
possible adhesive tape residues with a petroleum-based cleaner or similar
solvent.

2. DEFROSTING THE REFRIGERATOR
To control temperature
Many factors may influence the internal temperature of the refrigerator
and freezer compartments.
You will never have to defrost your refrigerator as it is designed to
defrost itself completely and automatically.
■ The temperature and humidity of the surrounding environment.
■ The opening frequency of the doors and the amount of warm food placed in
the refrigerator.
■ The combination of food and containers stored in the refrigerator.
For these reasons, you may want to adjust the control to suit the season and
your needs.
■ Turn the temperature control in the refrigerator and freezer compartments
toward WINTER for colder temperature and toward MIN for warmer
temperature.
■ Allow approximately 12 hours or overnight for the temperature to stabilize.
Then check to see if further adjustments are necessary.
CAUTION
To avoid the risk of electric shock or death, unplug the power cord
before replacing a burned out light bulb or cleaning the inner
parts.
3. RADIANT HEAT
With the Refrigerating System in operation, it is likely that the cabinet will feel
warm at the front edges and sides. This does not indicate trouble.
It is due to the hot-line used in this type of Refrigerating System which consists of
piping hot gas from the (motor-driven) compressor along the front edges, the
sides of the cabinet and the center partition to prevent dewing. This has nothing
to do with the storage temperature inside.
To turn off the refrigerator
Disconnect the power supply cord. Remove icing case and food. Leave
doors ajar for ventilation and dehumidification of both compartments.
11
During spells of hot, humid weather and in rainy season,
moisture may develop on the cabinet, just as water
condenses around a cold glass of water. It is not an
abnormal condition; wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.
This can also happen when the refrigerator is not installed
in an appropriate place.
12
WHAT TO DO...
When not operating for a long time
■ Remove the power supply cord.
■ Dry your refrigerator by opening the door for 2-3 days.
When you get ready to move
■ Securely fasten movable interior parts (or remove and pack them separately)
■ DO NOT lay down your refrigerator horizontally, or the compressor may be
damaged.
Before you call for service, please check the following points first.
If the refrigerator is not operating:
■ Is the power supply cord unplugged?
■ Is the home fuse or circuit out of order?
If the refrigerator is warmer than usual:
■ Has the door been opened frequently or for a long period?
■ Are there any hot food or anything that has been stored without cooling?
■ Is the clearance between the refrigerator and the wall given sufficiently?
If there are unusual sounds:
■ Is the refrigerator placed on a levelled floor?
■ Are there any foreign objects behind the refrigerator?
■ Are dishes on refrigerator shelves vibrating?
CAUTION
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in electric shock. If a
grounding adapter is used, make sure the receptacle box is fully
grounded.
POWER CORD REPLACEMENT
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or its service agent or a simmilary qualified person
in order to avoid a hazard.
