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

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.
Blocks of meat
Smoothie
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.
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 into 1-cm circular slices. Freeze
fruit in the soft freezer. Then blend soft-frozen apple
and kiwi, 250cc of milk and honey (if you like) in a
mixer until it becomes smooth. (makes 2 servings)
Watermelon
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 can not 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
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.

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.
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: konyaku (alimentary yam paste), bean curd, milk,
eggs, potatoes, etc.
The soft freezer can not preserve commercial ice cream
or frozen foods. Store these items in the freezer
compartment.

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 your need with a knife.

● Preservation period will vary depending on freshness
of food and the storage condition of the refrigerator.
Note
Please pay attention to the 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.
Cold air
● 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 5-15minutes.
● Adjust the temperature in accordance with degree of
freezing.

About Crystal Ice
• Ice made of water containing much mineral. (This white
sediment is a crystal of mineral ingredients, making no harm.)
Clear ice is made slowly to increase the clarity of the ice cube.
• When surrounding temperature, status of use have changed.
• When pieces of ice are stored long time in the ice storage bin.
● Ice making time can increase depending on the surrounding
temperature and the status of usage.
● Please decrease the number of opening the door when

Solutions and reasons
The door is easy
to open.
The door will not
close.
1 Does any food come in contact with the
refrigerator door? Are too many foods
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
adjustment legs 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.
3 Pull the front adjustment legs out to set the
refrigerator with the slightly longer front legs,
page 5
causing easier door closing.
The water tank or
the water supply
pipe freezes
1 Is the pipe installed on the water tank
securely? Is there any foreign object
between the pipe and water supply pipe?
2 Is any food dropped into the back side
of the freezer case?
1 Improper installation or any foreign object might
produce a clearance. Then the cold air can flow
page 20
backward to cause freezing.
2 The cold air flows backward to cause
freezing. Remove the dropped food.
Your television
picks up noise
1 Is your television or other appliances
located near the refrigerator?
2 Is the refrigerator’s power outlet close
to the antennae drop area?
1 Relocate unit at a distance from
televisions and other appliances.
2 Use a dedicated power source and
ground the unit.
1 Sounds suddenly get louder or tone changes
during first operation, when temperature is hot,
when doors are opened and closed frequently,
during QUICK MODE, etc.
2 Rattling, squeaking sounds
sometimes (every 1-2 hours)
3 Choking, squeaking sounds after turning on
power, sometimes during ice making (every 12 hours)
4 Whistle sounds after closing doors, etc.
5 Hissing, bubbling sounds sometimes
6 Sound like dripping water sometimes when
doors are opened
7 Tapping sound (approximately 1-10 times)
after turning on power, sometimes while unit
is running, during cleaning of ice maker plate,
etc.
8 Sounds like buzzing mosquitoes
1 The unit has switched to high-speed operation for
powerful cooling.
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 “ICE (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 coolant valve
operation check.
8 The sound is made when the air control damper
operates.
Noise is loud; the unit
makes disturbing
sounds;
the following sounds are
normal
Troubleshooting
When
The outer walls
heat up; wind
blows from the floor
1 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.
The water tank and
water supply pipe
become warm.
The anti-freeze heater is turned on.
This is a normal phenomenon.
