Thank you very much for buying this SHARP product. Before using your SHARP refrigerator,
please read this operation manual to ensure that you gain the maximum benefit from it.
■ This refrigerator contains flammable refrigerant (R600a:
isobutane) and insulation blowing gas (cyclopentane).
Observe the following rules to prevent ignition and explosion.
• The refrigeration system behind and inside the refrigerator
contains refrigerant. Do not allow any sharp objects to
come into contact with the refrigeration system.
• Do not use mechanical devices or other means to
accelerate the defrosting process. (This refrigerator has
adopted automatic defrosting system.)
• Do not use electric appliances inside the refrigerator.
• Use only the specified parts for the refrigerator
compartment light.
• Do not block the openings on the circumference of the
refrigerator.
• Do not use flammable sprays, such as spray paint near
the refrigerator. It may cause explosion or fire.
• If the refrigeration system should get punctured, do not
touch the wall outlet and do not use open flames. Open
the window and air out the room. Then ask a service
agent approved by SHARP for servicing.
• This refrigerator should be disposed appropriately.
Take the refrigerator to a recycling plant for flammable
refrigerant and insulation blowing gases.
■ Do not store highly volatile and flammable materials such
as ether, petrol, propane gas, aerosol cans, adhesive
agents and pure alcohol etc.
These materials are liable to explode.
■ Dust deposited on the power plug may cause fire. Wipe it
off carefully.
■ Do not attempt to change or modify this refrigerator. This
may result in fire, electric shock or injury.
■ Ensure that the refrigerator presents no danger to children

STORING FOOD
Refrigeration reduces the rate of food spoilage.
To maximise the shelf life of perishable food products,
ensure that the food is of the freshest possible quality.
The following is a general guide to help promote longer food
storage.
Fruit / Vegetables
To minimize moisture loss, fruit and vegetables should be
loosely enclosed in a plastic material (e.g. wrap, bags) and
place in the fruit and vegetable crisper.

• Most dairy products have a use by date on the outer
packaging which informs the recommended temperature
and shelf life of the product.
• Eggs should be stored in the Egg tray.
Meats / Fish / Poultry
• Place on a plate or dish and cover with paper or plastic
wrap.
• For larger cuts of meat, fish, or poultry, place to the rear of
the shelves.
• Ensure all cooked food is wrapped securely or placed in an
airtight container.
NOTE
The indication will
disappear.
• Evenly place the food on the
shelves to allow the cooling air
to circulate efficiently.
• Hot foods should be cooled
before storing. Storing hot foods
increases the temperature in the
unit and increases the risk of
food spoilage.
• Do not block the outlet and
inlet of the cool air circulating
circuit with foods or containers;
otherwise the foods will not be
evenly cooled throughout the
refrigerator.
• Keep the door securely closed.
IN
OUT
Do not place food directly in front of cold air
outlet. This may lead to the food freezing.
For best freezing
• Quality of foods should be fresh.
• Freeze small quantities of food at a time to freeze them
quickly.
• Food should be properly sealed, sealed tightly or covered.
• Evenly place the food in the freezer.
• Label bags or containers to keep an inventory of frozen
food.

spray-on cleaning products, or any other cleaning products such
as mineral turpentine, methylated spirits, thinners, petrol etc.
These may damage your refrigerator and may void any warranty.
• If the power supply is disconnected, please wait for at least
5 minutes before re-connecting power.
• The glass shelves weigh approximately 3 kg each. Hold firmly
when removing from the cabinet or carrying.
• Do not drop objects inside the refrigerator or strike the inner
wall. This may cause the inner surface to crack.
Defrosting
Defrosting is fully automatic due to a unique energy saving
system.
When the compartment light is blown
Contact a service agent approved by SHARP to request a
replacement compartment light. The compartment light is not
to be removed other than by qualified service personnel.
Switching off your refrigerator
If the refrigerator needs to be switched off for an extended
period, the following steps should be taken to reduce the
growth of mould:
1. Remove all food.
2. Remove the power plug from the power point.
3. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
4. Ensure that all the doors are wedged open slightly for air
circulation.
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
Before you call for service, check the following points.
Problem
The outside of the cabinet is hot
when touched.
When there is refrigerator noise.
Frosting or condensation
generation occurs inside or
outside the refrigerator.
The foods in the refrigerator
compartment freeze.
Noticeable odours.
Touch control panel does not
work.
Solution
This is normal. The hot pipe is in the cabinet in order to prevent condensation generation.
It is normal for the refrigerator to produce the following sounds.
• Loud noise produced by the compressor when operation starts
--- Sound becomes quieter after a while.
• Loud noise produced once a day by the compressor
--- Operating sound produced immediately after automatic defrost operation.
• Sound of flowing fluid (gurgling sound, fizzing sound)
--- Sound of refrigerant flowing in pipes (sound may become louder from time to time).
• Cracking or crunching sound, squeaking sound
--- Sound produced by expansion and contraction of inner walls and internal parts during
cooling.
This may occur in one of the following cases. Use a wet cloth for wiping frost and a dry
cloth for wiping condensation.
• When the ambient humidity is high.
• When the door is frequently opened and closed.
• When food containing plenty of moisture is stored. (Wrapping is required.)
• Is the refrigerator operated for a long time with refrigerator temp. control set at 0°C?
• Is the refrigerator operated for a long time with freezer temp. control set at -21°C?
• Low ambient temperature may cause food to freeze even if refrigerator temp. control is
set to 6°C.
• Wrapping is required for food with strong odours.
• Deodorising unit cannot remove all of the odours.
This may occur in one of the following cases.
• The panel or your finger is soiled with dripping, oil and etc.
• Touch the panel with gloved hand, adhesive bandage on your finger, nail or objects.
• Sticker or tape is affixed on the keys.
• Touch position is slightly off from the keys.
• Operate time is not enough for the keys to work.
If you still require service contact your SHARP Approved Service Centre.
