SEVERE WARNING SIGNS
FOR DISPOSAL
• Leave the shelves in place so that
children may not easily climb inside.
Ensure that none of the pipes on the back of
the appliance are damaged prior to disposal.
R-600a or R-134a 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 R-600a), 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 broken in the open
space.
When disposing of this or other refrigerator/s,
remove the door/door seals, door latch so that
children or animals cannot become trapped
inside. Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not enter and play with the
appliance.
If trapped inside, the child may become injury
and suffocate to death.
Please dispose of the packaging material for
this product in an environmentally friendly
manner.
Keep all packaging materials well out of the
reach of children, as packaging materials can
be dangerous to children.
If a child places a bag over its head, it may
result in suffocation.
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 defrosting of contents or
temperature becoming too warm in the frozen
food compartment) 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 goes bad 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.
• Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed
completely.

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.
- But should the power failure last more than 24
-
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.
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.
•
•
•
•
•
The food in the refrigerator
is frozen.
Check that 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 heat sources nearby?
Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall?
Is the temperature control on the front panel set to the coldest
temperature?
• Is the surrounding temperature too low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest part
of the fridge?
There are unusual noises.
•
•
•
•
•
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.
Ice Maker is not producing
ice.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the refrigerator before
making ice?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
