OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Non-Freon Refrigerators
This refrigerator uses non-Freon refrigerant
(isobutane) and non-Freon foam insulation
(cyclopentane).
These materials are harmless to the
environment, and do not affect the ozone
layer and global warming.
A refrigerator to brighten up your table everyday.
Now, a refrigerator that keeps food
The fridge is featured with elevating shelves. By adjusting up or
down shelf without having to remove already stored items, Storage
capacity of the refrigerator compartment is maximized. The shelf
can be “made to fit” to larger items.
Surround Cooling System Cold air is directed into the refrigerator
from the front, back and both sides of the compartment. This
ensures uniform cooling throughout the compartment as well as
airflow to all shelves even with large quantities of foods stored.
Vegetables are exposed to LED light to maintain their freshness.
In addition, vitamins and polyphenols increase.
Quick freezing function friezes instantaneously at -40˚C food and
therefore the taste of food is preserved. By using soft freezing
feature, the food preserved at -7˚C but still frozen but soft enough
to cut. No more thawing frozen food before cutting or portioning
fresh food before freezing.
With Automatic Ice Maker, water is purified. UV Catalyst and
Lead reducing filter removes bacteria with the power of light and
enhances the flavor of water. Enjoy pure clear ice cubes using tap
water or mineral water.
All parts of the water tank can be removed for easy cleaning.
Silent Ice making and easy to use ice compartment. Ice cubes
drop automatically in the ice drawer on the silence mat which
absorbs sound. Ice cubes are ready to use.
Universal design & layout
Designed to take frequency to use into consideration,
the layout of the drawers makes life easier.
Quiet design
Using Mitsubishi's original new technology,
a noise level of approximately 17 dB(A)*1 was achieved.
*1 According to noise testing using the JIS C9607 standard (during low-speed operation).
dB(A): Noise level unit; decibel A

Short Notes
for Users
The temperature value indication is meant for
estimated food temperature at a specific area inside
the product. (The temperature is different from the
compartment temperature inside the product.) Due
to this reason, the temperature indication is not
immediately changed by opening and closing the
compartment doors or changing the temperature
control setting.
The compartment temperature inside the product
may rise or fall for a short period before or after a
defrosting cycle and this is a normal phenomenon.
The indicated temperatures used as guidelines here
are based on the stabilized temperature which was
measured slightly lower than the center part of the
product under the condition of room temperature
30˚C, without placing any food inside the
compartment with all doors closed.
After the temperature control setting for the versa
compartment is changed, the temperature indicated
on
(LCD section) may vary for a while.

Tricolor LEDs (top of compartment)
Vegetables are exposed to LED light to maintain
their freshness.Vitamins and polyphenols increase.
Vegetables are still living even after being harvested.
By bathing the vegetables in light, their nutrients are
increased and the freshness is preserved.
Short Notes
for Users
* Orange LEDs (3 locations)
These LEDs are always on.
* Purple and blue LEDs (1 location each)
These LEDs are on for about 160 minutes a day,
therefore the LEDs may not be on when the door
is opened.
Note
Do not break down or pour water
over the LEDs.
Doing so can cause damage to the LEDs.
Long-lasting LEDs are used for the tricolor
LEDs, therefore replacement is not normally
needed.
There are no foods that cannot be stored under the
LED light. Simply store them in the usual manner.
Even with poor light, vegetables increase nutrients.
Therefore, there is no need to unwrap the covers,
unless the cover shut outs the light.
Cover vegetables
and fruit in plastic
wrap to preserve
freshness.
Vegetable nutrients will not continue to increase
forever. The storage stability will depend on the
freshness when bought. Please use the freshest
vegetables available.
In addition, vegetables should still be consumed
when they are at their freshest.
The vegetable compartment has high humidity,
therefore the bottom of each case may become cloudy
or condensation may form when a large amount of
leafy vegetables is placed in the vegetable
compartment. If condensation collects in the bottom
of a case, it will cause the case to become dirty,
therefore wipe the case with a dry cloth.

Items that are not suitable
for soft freezing
Items that can not be frozen normally are not suitable for
frost freezing either. Form and quality of such items after
freezing are not guaranteed.
Example: milk, eggs, potatoes, bean curd, konyaku
(nutritious yam paste), etc.
Soft Freezing
Meat and Fish
Though your meat or fish may seem to be frozen as if it were
frozen normally, with soft freezing you need not separate food or
wait for it to thaw because your meat or fish can be cut with a
knife immediately after you remove them from the versa
compartment, thereby shortening your cooking time!
Items that have been transferred from freezer to soft freezer or
soft freezer to freezer should be used within 1-2 weeks.
Blocks of meat
Meat that has been stored in the freezer or was bought frozen
can be transferred to the soft freezer, so you can divide up and
remove only the amount that you want to use.
Depending on its size, your meat
should be ready to cut within 2-5
hours after it is transferred to the
soft freezer.
Thinly sliced meat or bacon
Thinly sliced meat or bacon can be cut immediately. They will
thaw while cooking or dipped in basting, during which time you
can easily separate them.
They may not be able to
be separated
immediately after they
are removed from the
soft freezer.
Ground meat
You can cut and remove the amount
you want to use.
Furthermore, if you cut them into
small cubes, they will thaw enough
in 15-30 minutes for you to loosen
with your hands.
Cutlets and cod roe
The soft freezer can not preserve commercial ice
cream or frozen foods. Store these items in the
freezer compartment.
18
Cutlets can be cooked on a
low flame without taking
the time to thaw them. Cod
roe and other highly salted
foods do not freeze and can
be used immediately.
The soft freezer is recommended for very sweet fruit. Try soft
freezing with various fruit.
Eat fruit frozen without thawing.
(these fruit will not be fresh again after thawing)
The flavor of fruit kept in the soft freezer for more than 1
week may change. It is recommended to eat fruit within 2-3
days to best enjoy its new taste.
Freezing time may vary depending on sugar content of the
fruit, so allow 1 day for freezing.
Others
Meat sauce
Store left over sauces in an airtight container. You can remove the
sauce with a spoon and use it as a universal sauce with gratin or
omelets.
Sauces with high liquid content may not be removable with a
spoon.
Line the inside of a storage container with plastic wrap, pour
sauce into container, remove by holding the wrap and cut the
amount you need with a knife.
Smoothie
Blend soft-frozen fruit and yogurt and milk in a blender to make
an easy healthy drink.
Example: Cut half a peeled apple into bite-size pieces, and a
peeled kiwi fruit into 1-cm circular slices. Freeze fruit in the soft
freezer. Then blend soft-frozen apple and kiwi fruit, 250cc of
milk and honey (if you like) in a mixer until it becomes smooth.
(makes 2 servings)
Watermelon
Spinach
Boil spinach, place it in an airtight
container and soft-freeze for later
use in miso soup or butter saute.
Make watermelon ice by cutting
watermelon into bite-size pieces
and freezing in the soft freezer.
Fermented soybeans and fried bean curd
Canned fruit
Soft-freeze mikan oranges or
pineapple in its syrup to make easy
sherbet.
May not freeze depending on
the sugar content of the syrup.
Short Notes
for Users Please pay attention to the
Fermented soybeans can be
mixed immediately after removal
from the versa compartment.
Chilled fermented soybeans can
be quite tasty. You can cut the
amount of fried bean curd you
want to use.
When not frozen enough
When frozen too much
following when using soft freezing
Since food freezes takes place at approximately -7˚C with soft
freezing, it may take up to 24 hours for food to freeze
completely.
Open and close compartment doors with as low frequency as
possible when you add items to the soft freezer.
The degree of freezing may vary depending on the type of item,
cooking method, arrangement of item (folded and layered or
location of item), amount, and period of storage.
Items may not freeze or may freeze too much (for cutting with a
knife) depending on content of sugar, salt and fat.
Items that have frozen too much can be cut with a knife if they
are left in room temperature for 5-15 minutes.
Adjust the temperature in accordance with degree of
freezing required.

Short Notes
for Users
Ice made of water containing much mineral such as mineral
water might cause white sediment (white crystal). When the ice
melts into water, it may appear fibrous. This white sediment is a
crystal of mineral ingredients, which is not harmful.
The V-LED lamp comes on in the following condition:
• When the door of the refrigerator compartment or ice making
compartment is kept open (However, the lamp goes out when
the door is kept open for 5 minutes.)
• Before and after feeding water into the ice tray.
To cool the Ice Making compartment, set the target temperature
between -30˚C to -20˚C when Quick ice making.
page 12
The time required for making ice might be longer according to
the frequency of closing and opening the door, the temperature
around the refrigerator, and the amount and temperature of the
water added to the tank.
Ice shapes
The ice is such a shape as irregular and
flat trapezium or rhombus.
The size of ice made for one time may
vary with the water amount in the water
tank.
One batch of ice is 7-8 pieces.
If the water tank is filled above the fulllevel mark, the water channels in the ice
tray will freeze, causing 2-3 pieces of ice
to stick together and bumpy ice.
If some pieces of ice stored long time,
they will be stuck or become smaller.
(This phenomenon is called
“sublimation”.)
The quickly made ice may be cracked or
split due to fast freezing.

3 Is the unit set to fast cooling mode?
1 The temperature is an estimate of the food
temperature and does not change quickly. After the
temperature for the versa or ice making compartment
is adjusted, the display may move until the
temperature stabilizes.
2 Cancel the timer mode or child lock setting.
page 13
1 Temperature may change when the compressor starts or
stops, when surrounding air temperature changes, or before
and after operation of the automatic defrost function.
2 Refrain from opening and closing doors until the unit cools.
3 Temperature may temporarily drop during “QUICK” mode.
If situation does not change even after troubleshooting, immediately contact a
representative of the retail store where purchase was made.
1 Do you open the door frequently or is the door
ajar?
The door is easy to open.
The door will not close.
1 Does any food come in contact with the refrigerator
door? Is there too much food stored in the refrigerator?
2 Is any food dropped into the back side of the
sliding door, or is the power cable placed between
the unit and the door?
3 Is the unit installed properly? Are the adjustable
supports right on the floor?
1 Be careful not to stick any stored foods out of the
shelves or cases.
2 Remove the dropped or pinched items. Be careful not
to pinch foods, power cables or plastic bags.
You are concerned
by strong odours
(from food or ice)
1 Have you placed items with strong odours inside
the unit without covering them with plastic wrap?
2 Is the water tank clean?
1 The deodoriser can not completely remove extremely strong
odours, so be sure to cover with plastic wrap.
page 8
2 Perform maintenance and clean regularly. page

1 Sounds suddenly get louder or tone changes.
1 The unit has switched to high-speed operation for
powerful cooling during first operation, when
temperature is hot, when doors are opened and closed
frequently, during QUICK MODE, etc.
2 These are sounds made during automatic ice making.
The unit’s automatic ice maker and pump make a
sound every 100 minutes or so, regardless of whether
or not the tank is filled with water.
3 These are sounds made during automatic ice making operation
check. This sound is made even during “STOP” mode.
4 This is a sound made when the fan motor stops and starts.
5 These are sounds made during gas flow.
6 This is a creaking sound made when warm air has
penetrated the unit, causing plastic parts to expand.
7 This is a sound made during refrigerant valve
operation check.
Noise is loud;
the unit makes
disturbing
sounds;
the following
sounds are
normal
2 Is it a rainy or highly humid time of year?
2 Rattling, squeaking sounds sometimes (every 1-2
hours)
3 Choking, squeaking sounds after turning on power,
sometimes during ice making (every 1-2 hours)
4 Whistle sounds after closing doors, etc.
5 Hissing, bubbling sounds sometimes
6 Sound like dripping water sometimes when doors
are opened.

during cleaning of ice maker plate, etc.
8 Sounds like buzzing mosquitoes.
9 Low whirring sound sometimes after opening the
freezer compartment door.
1 Moisture in the air becomes condensation or frost
when it cools. Moisture or frost can collect even if
the door is only slightly ajar.
page 6
2 Moisture may temporarily collect on the unit. Wipe with a
dry cloth. Frost can form easily in the freezer
compartment. Try to reduce the time that the door is open.
3 Lower the adjustable supports to raise the front of the
refrigerator slightly and make closing
page 7
the door easier.
8 The sound is made when the air control damper operates.
9 This is the sound of the airflow from the cooling fan.
Ice is dented, comes
out cloudy small melts
Refer to page 21 regarding shape and clarity of the ice.
The water tank and
water supply pipe
become warm.
The anti-freeze heater is turned on.
This is a normal phenomenon.
The outer walls
heat up; wind
blows from the floor
The unit is equipped with side and ceiling heat ventilation prevention piping and on bottom with a fan to promote heat
ventilation. When unit is first operated or during the summer, exterior walls become especially hot (approximately 50-60˚C)
and warm air can flow from below the unit. These are necessary devices for cooling the unit; resulting heat is not abnormal.
