ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR PROPER USAGE
• Allow the appliance to stand for 2hours after installation.
• To get best performance of product,
- Do not place foods too closely in front of the vents at the rear of the appliance as it
can obstruct free air circulation in the freezer compartment.
- Wrap the food up properly or place it in airtight containers before put it into the fridge
freezer
- Do not put any newly introduced food for freezing near to already frozen food.
• Do not place carbonated or izzy drinks in the freezer compartment.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen goods.
• There is no need to disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply if you will be away
for less than three weeks. But, remove all the food if you are going away for the three
weeks or more. Unplug the refrigerator and clean it, rinse and dry.
• Most power failures that are corrected in 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 24hours, remove all frozen
food.
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperature, such as bananas, melons.
• Place the ice tray at the originally provided posistion by manufacturer in order to achieve
optimal ice-freezing.
• Your refrigerator is frost-free, so you are no need to defrost manually and the refrigerator
will do so automatically.
• Temperature rising during the defrost can comply with ISO requirement. 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 in several layers of paper such as newspaper.
• Any increase in temperature of frozen food during defrosting can shorten its storage life.
• This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar applications such as
– staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working environments;
– farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other residential type environments;
– bed and breakfast type environments;
– catering and similar non-retail applications.
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.

If the clearance between the Refrigerator and surrounding furniture and wall is too small,
it will restrain heat dissipation capability, reduce refrigerating capacity and increase power
consumption.
• Install the Refrigerator at a dry and well-ventilated location
Install the Refrigerator at a well-ventilated location. Don’t install it at a damp or easily damped
location so as to prevent metal parts from rusting or being shocked.
• Avoid heat and direct sunlight
If the environmental temperature is too high, the refrigerating capacity may reduce and power
consumption may increase.
If it is installed at a place full of gas or fog, its surface may discolor.
2.Leveling the Refrigerator
• Put it at a firm and level place.
If the place is uneven, it can be leveled by adjusting the leveling legs at its lower part (rotate
anticlockwise to rise).
Note: Open the draws of the freezer while you adjuste the leveling legs.

01 SETTING UP
A proper distance is kept between the Refrigerator and its surroundings.
Allow clearance to the top, back, left and right when installing. This will help to reduce power
consumption and saving energy.
To keep smooth circulation of air around the Refrigerator, please leave the Refrigerator 55mm
from wall of both sides and rear side and 300mm from top wall.
setting up your refrigerator
INSTALLING THE REFRIGERATOR
• When it is installed on carpet or floor, put a firm backing board on it to prevent the
ground from discoloring when heated. Don’t use the bearing plate provided by us for
delivery directly as a backing board.
If it is installed at an uneven place, it will lead to shake and noise and shorten its service life.
• Adjust front of the Refrigerator to keep it a little bit higher than the rear part.
Shake the Refrigerator from front to back, left and right and across corners to check if it is
firm; adjust leveling legs of the front part again to keep it a little bit higher than the rear.
If the front is lower, the Refrigerator doors may not be closed, its performance may be badly
affected, and some frost may be formed.
3.Adjust parallelism
If doors descend after the Refrigerator is installed and stored with foods, please adjust
parallelism of doors according to drawings 4~5 days after installation.
4. Clean, install accessories and connect power
Remove the dust accumulated on the Refrigerator while transporting.
Refer to the following instruction of the manual for installation of relevant accessories.
To prevent damage during transporting, some accessories are packed together.
Insert power plug to 220V socket. Don’t share a socket with other equipment.

Notice on foods storage:
The fridge is for storing fresh foods, and its good storage mode is essential for keeping foods
fresh and delicious.
Don’t store the foods which are easy to go bad at low temperature, i.e. banana, complete
tropical fruit etc. Super cool will lead to discoloring of those foods and reduce their vitamin.
Don’t store hot foods until they are cool; or it will rise temperature of the Refrigerator, affect
freshness of other foods and waste power.
Don’t open doors frequently; or hot gas will enter the Refrigerator and its temperature will rise.
Don’t put too much food on the bottle holder; or it may be unable to close doors.
Seal vessels with preservative film or plastic bag or store foods with covered vessels, so as to
prevent water from vaporizing, keep flavor and nutrition of foods and reduce odor within the
Refrigerator.
The air outlet can’t be blocked by foods; otherwise cooling speed of
foods will be slow down.
