SETTING UP THE REFRIGERATOR
Now that you have your new refrigerator installed and in place, you are ready to set up and
enjoy the full features and functions of the appliance.
By completing the following steps, your refrigerator should be fully operational.
,IQRWƂUVWFKHFNWKHSRZHUVXSSO\DQGHOHFWULFLW\VRXUFHRUWU\WKHWURXEOHVKRRWLQJVHFWLRQ
DWWKHEDFNRIWKLVXVHUPDQXDO,I\RXKDYHDQ\IXUWKHUTXHVWLRQVFRQWDFW\RXU6DPVXQJ
Electronics service center.
Place the refrigerator in an appropriate location with reasonable clearance
between the wall and the refrigerator. Refer to installation instructions in this
manual. (Refer to page 11)
Once the refrigerator is plugged in, make sure the interior light comes on when
you open the doors.
Set the temperature control to the coldest temperature and wait for an hour.
The refrigerator should get slightly chilled and the motor should run smoothly.
After powering the refrigerator, it will take a few hours to reach the appropriate
temperature. Once the refrigerator temperature is sufficiently cool, you can
store food and drink in the refrigerator.
Saving Energy Tips
,QVWDOOWKHDSSOLDQFHLQDFRROGU\URRPZLWKDGHTXDWHYHQWLODWLRQ
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.
