• When transporting and installing the
appliance, care should be taken to ensure
that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are
damaged.

ignite or cause an eye injury.
If a leak is detected, avoid any naked flames or
potential sources of ignition and air the room
in which the appliance is standing for several
minutes.
• In order to avoid the creation of a flammable
gas-air mixture if a leak in the refrigerating
circuit occurs, the size of the room in which the
appliance may be sited depends on the amount
of refrigerant used.
• Never start up an appliance showing any signs of
damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
The room where the refrigerator will be sited must
be 1m³ in size for every 8g of R600a refrigerant
inside the appliance.

appliance or the rating label inside the refrigerator
to see which refrigerant is used for your
refrigerator.
When this product contains flammable gas
(Refrigerant R600a), contact your local authority
in regard to safe disposal of this product.
Cyclopentane is used as an insulation blowing
gas. The gases in insulation material require
special disposal procedure.
Please contact your local authorities in regard to
the environmentally safe disposal of this product.
Ensure that none of the pipes on the back of the
appliances are damaged prior to disposal.
The pipes shall be broke in the open space.
If the appliance contains iso-butane refrigerant
(R600a), a natural gas with high environmental
compatibility that is, however, also combustible.
When transporting and installing the appliance,
care should be taken to ensure that no parts of
the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
When disposing of this product or other
refrigerators, remove the door/door seals, door

ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR
PROPER USAGE
• In the event of a power failure, call the local office
of your Electricity Company and ask how long it
is going to last.
- Most power failures that are corrected within
an hour or two will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of
door openings while the power is off.
- Should the power failure last more than 24 hours,
remove all frozen foods.
• If keys are provided with the refrigerator, the keys
should be kept out of the reach of children and
not in vicinity of the appliance.
• The appliance might not operate consistently
(possibility of temperature becoming too warm
in refrigerator) when sited for an extended period
of time below the cold end of the range of
temperature for which the refrigerating appliance
is designed.
• Do not store food which spoils easily at low
temperature, such as bananas, melons.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there is
no need to manually defrost your appliance, as
this will be carried out automatically.
• Temperature rising during the defrost can comply
with ISO requirement.
But if you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of the frozen food while defrosting
the appliance, please wrap the frozen food in
several layers of newspaper.
• Any increase in temperature of frozen food during
defrosting can shorten its storage life.
Saving Energy Tips
-
-
-
-
-
Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with
adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight
and never put it near a direct source of heat
(radiator, for example).
Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance.
Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in
the appliance.
Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the
frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
Do not keep the door of the appliance open for
too long when putting food in or taking food out.
The shorter time for which the door is open, the
less ice will form in the freezer.
Clean the rear of the refrigerator regularly.
Dust increases energy consumption.
Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
Ensure sufficient air exhaust at the refrigerator
base and at the back wall of the refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent openings.
Allow clearance to the right, left, back and top
when installing.
This will help reduce power consumption and
keep your energy bills lower.

organic matter in vegetables decrease and wither
more quickly.
If you keep vegetables and fruits in fresh safe
drawer, you can keep them fresher because they
can breathe and photosynthesize in there at the
same time.
