WARNING
Severe warning signs for
transportation and site
• When transporting and installing the
appliance, care should be taken to ensure
that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are
damaged.
•R600a or R134a is used as a refrigerant.
Check the compressor label on the rear of
the 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),
-Refrigerant leaking from the pipe work could
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. The amount of refrigerant
in your particular appliance is shown on the
identification plate inside the appliance.
- If the appliance contains isobutane 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

•Please dispose of the packaging material for this
product in an environmentally friendly manner.
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 food.
•If keys are provided with the refrigerator, the
keys should be kept out of the reach of children
and not be in the vicinity of the appliance.
•The appliance might not operate consistently
(possibility of temperature becoming too warm
in the 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 rise during defrosting can comply
with ISO requirements. 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 up 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.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The appliance is not
operating at all or the
temperature is too high.
• Check if the power plug is correctly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the front panel correctly set?
• Does sun shine on the appliance or are there any heat sources
nearby?
• Is the back of the appliance too close to the wall?
The food in the
refrigerator is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the front panel set to the coldest
temperature?
• Is the surrounding temperature too low?
There are unusual
noises.
• Check if the appliance is installed on a stable and even floor.
• Is the back of the appliance too close to the wall?
• Have any foreign objects fallen behind or under the appliance?
• Is the noise coming from the compressor in the appliance?
• A ticking sound occurs when the various accessories contract or
expand.
The front corners
and sides of the
appliance are warm and
condensation starts to
form.
• Heat-proof pipes are installed in the front corners of the appliance
to prevent condensation from forming.
When the surrounding temperature rises, this may not always be
effective. However, this is not abnormal.
• In very humid weather, condensation may form on the outer
surface of the appliance when the moisture in the air comes into
contact with the cool surface of the appliance.
You can hear a liquid
bubbling in the
appliance.
• This is the refrigerant, which cools the inside of the appliance.
There is a bad smell
inside the appliance.
• Is there any spoiled food inside of the refrigerator?
• Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped
so that it is airtight.
• Clean out your refrigerator periodically and throw away any
spoiled or suspect food.
