IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Before the refrigerator is used, it must be properly positioned and installed as
described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the risk of fire,
electrical shock or injury when using the refrigerator, follow basic precautions,
including the following:







Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not
use an adaptor and do not use an extension cord.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your refrigerator, be
provided. Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create
a fire hazard or explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, unplug the
refrigerator or disconnect power. Failure to do so can result in electrical
shock or death.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your refrigerator unless it is
specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be
referred to a qualified technician.
DANGER: Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned appliances are still dangerous, even if they will "just sit in the
garage a few days."
 Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer, take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
 Never allow children to operate, play with or crawl inside the refrigerator.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Clearances for Ventilation
It is necessary to have good ventilation around the refrigerator for heat
dissipation, high efficiency of refrigeration and low power consumption. For this
purpose, it is necessary to leave enough clear space around the refrigerator.

The clearance at the back must be at least 4" and the clearance at each side
must also be 4". Allow at least 8" of space at the top.

A clear space should also be left on the hinge side to enable the door to
swing open 160 degrees.
Electrical Connection
The refrigerator is designed to operate with a power supply of single-phase
alternating current (115-120V/60Hz). The refrigerator must be plugged into its
own socket instead of sharing one with other electrical appliances.

Do not use extension cords or double adaptors.

Be sure the appliance is properly grounded.
The power cord should be neither lengthened nor folded into a coil during
operation. Moreover, the cord should be kept away from the compressor at the
back of the unit, the surface temperature of which is very high during operation.
Touching it could damage the insulation or cause leakage of electricity.
If the supply cord is damaged, do not attempt to repair it yourself. It must be
replaced by an authorized service technician.
Protection from Moisture and Heat
Do not keep the refrigerator in a place where there is heavy moisture as this may
cause rust to form on the metal parts. Also, the refrigerator should not be
sprayed directly by water as this may cause poor insulation and current leakage.
The refrigerator should also be kept far away from any heat source or direct
sunlight.
Stability
The floor on which the refrigerator will be placed must be flat and solid. It should
not be positioned on any soft material such as plastic foam, etc. If the
refrigerator is not level, adjust the leg screws and check with a spirit level.
6
Dangerous Substances
Do not place the refrigerator near any volatile or combustible substances such as
gasoline, alcohol, lacquer, etc. These materials must not be stored in the
refrigerator either.
Moving the Refrigerator
The refrigerator must not be laid horizontal or placed upside-down. In fact, it
should never be tilted more that 45 degrees from the vertical. If it is ever inclined
more than this, it should be set upright and allowed to stand disconnected for 24
hours to allow the refrigerant to settle.
Changing the Reversible Door
This refrigerator has the capability of opening either from the left or the right side.
The unit is delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you
desire to reverse the opening direction, follow these instructions:
NOTE: Before reversing the door, shut off the power. All parts removed must be
saved for the reinstallation of the door.
1. Remove the upper hinge cover (6) first.
2. Remove the two screws (1) that hold the upper hinge (5) (right side) to the
frame. Remove the upper hinge.
3. Lift off the door and place it on a padded surface to prevent scratching it.
4. Remove the two screws (8) that hold the lower hinge (2). Remove the lower
hinge.
5. Remove the left front leg (4) and transfer it to the right side.
6. Move the hole cover plate (7) to the right side.
7
7. Before putting the lower hinge (2) into position, remove the bolt-pin (9) and
reverse the direction of the lower hinge. Then install the lower hinge onto the
left side of the lower frame with two screws (8).
8. Insert the bolt-pin (9) into the lower hinge (2).
9. Set the door into place making sure the door seats onto the lower hinge (2).
10. While holding the door in the closed position, secure the upper hinge (5) in
the top frame of the left side with two screws (1). Do not tighten the screws
until the top of the door is level with the counter top.
11. Install the hinge cover (6) on the upper hinge.
OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Setting the Temperature Control




Your unit has only one control for regulating the temperature in the
refrigerator. The temperature control, or thermostat, is located at the back of
the unit.
The range of the temperature control is from 0 to 5. The first time you turn
the unit on, set the thermostat to its highest setting, which is 5.
After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best
suits your needs. The setting of 3 should be appropriate for home or office
use.
To turn the appliance off, turn the temperature control to 0.
NOTES:
 Turning the temperature control to the 0 position stops the cooling
cycle but does not shut off the power to the unit.
 If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off, you must wait
3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart
before this time delay, the unit will not start.
Chiller Compartment
This compartment is actually part of the refrigerator compartment and is not a
true and separate freezer. It can make ice cubes but may not keep ice cream
frozen or get cold enough to freeze foods safely. You can use a colder
thermostat setting to freeze certain foods, but other items in the refrigerator may
be affected.
The door of the chiller compartment is susceptible to breakage due to excessive
ice build-up. This part is not covered under your warranty. Be sure to defrost
when the ice reaches a thickness of 1/4".
8
Defrosting
The surface of the evaporator ices up when the refrigerator is in normal use.
When the frost/ice layer reaches a thickness of 1/4", the refrigerator must be
defrosted and cleaned. Otherwise, lower efficiency and high energy
consumption will result.
1. Take out all food from the refrigerator and leave the door open.
2. Turn the thermostat to the OFF position, 0, and unplug the refrigerator.
3. Position a shallow tray on the shelf below the chiller compartment.
4. After the ice has melted, dry the unit carefully and empty the drip tray.
5. Reconnect the power and set the thermostat to its original setting; close the
door.
6. Allow time for the unit to reach its normal temperature, then reload the food.
CAUTION: Using a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost may damage the
cooling system and will void the warranty. We recommend using a plastic
scraper.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The refrigerator should be cleaned and maintained once a month. When
performing maintenance, make absolutely sure the power plug is first
disconnected from the power outlet.
Cleaning
Wipe the inner and outer surfaces of the refrigerator and its accessories with a
wet cloth. If necessary, use a solution of a mild detergent, then clean with water
and dry with a clean cloth.
When cleaning, do not use hot water, solvents, gasoline, alcohol, kerosene,
washing powder, abrasive cleansers, alkali detergents, etc., so as not to damage
the surface of the unit. Do not spray the refrigerator directly with water since this
could cause rust or damage the insulation.
Be especially careful to keep the sealing gasket around the inner surface of the
door clean.
If the plastic parts of the refrigerator remain contaminated for a long time by any
type of oil, they will age prematurely and possibly become subject to cracking.
The drainage pan at the back of the unit, above the compressor, should be
cleaned regularly.

TROUBLESHOOTING
You can easily solve many common problems with your refrigerator, saving you
the cost of a possible service call. Try the suggestions below to see if you can
correct the problem before calling the service provider.
Troubleshooting Guide
Refrigerator is not working
Check if there is a power failure.
Check if the power plug is inserted into an outlet.
Check that the fuse has not blown and that the circuit breaker has not tripped.
Refrigerator is cooling excessively
Thermostat may be set too high.
NOTE: If foodstuffs containing a lot of moisture are placed directly under the
cool air outlets, they will freeze easily. This does not indicate a
malfunction.
Refrigerator is not cooling sufficiently
The food may be packed too tightly which will block the flow of cool air.
Something warm may have been put into the refrigerator.
Too much food may be packed into the refrigerator.
The door may not have been closed properly.
The door gasket may be damaged.
There may not be enough clearance around the refrigerator.
The thermostat may be set incorrectly.
Condensation forms on the outside of the refrigerator
This may occur when the humidity is high, such as during a wet season. This
is the same result as when moisture forms when chilled water is
poured into a glass. It does not indicate a malfunction. Wipe dry with
a clean, dry cloth.
There is the sound of water flowing
This is the sound of the refrigerant flowing through the coils. It does not
indicate a malfunction.
The side panel of the cabinet heats up
The side panel of the cabinet will heat up when the door is opened or closed
frequently, when starting the unit and when the unit operates in
summer with a high ambient temperature. If this happens, do not
touch the panel. The heating results from the dissipation of heat from
inside the cabinet and does not mean that something is wrong.
