INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Refrigerator
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Before connecting the refrigerator to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 4
hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from improper
handling during transportation.
• Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth. (Cleaning instruction on page 8)
Installing Your Refrigerator
• This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
• Place your refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support the refrigerator when it is fully
loaded.
• Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator, which allows the proper
air ventilation. Adjust the feet to keep the refrigerator level.
• Locate the refrigerator away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator,
etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical
consumption. Ambient temperature below 50°F or above 85°F will hinder the performance of this
appliance. This unit is not designed for use in a garage or any other outside installation.
• Avoid locating the refrigerator in moist areas.
• Plug the refrigerator into dedicated, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any
circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions
concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an
authorized service center. This unit is not designed to be installed in an RV or used with an
inverter.
• After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, turn the unit on and allow the unit to cool down for
2~3 hours under before placing food in the refrigerator or freezer compartment.

Electrical Connection
WARNING
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by an authorized service center.
This refrigerator should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this refrigerator is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the
possibility of electrical shock.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
This refrigerator requires a standard 115/120 Volt A.C. ~/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground.
This refrigerator is not designed to be used with an inverter.
The cord should be secured behind the refrigerator and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight
out from the receptacle.
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance. Use of an extension cord can
negatively affect the performance of the unit.
If any problems with the appliance persist, please contact our Customer Service Dept. to consult with
a representative at 888 775-0202 or visit our website to request warranty service at www.magicchefewave.com.

OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Temperature Control
• Your refrigerator has one control for regulating the
temperature. The temperature control is located on the
top left hand corner of the refrigerator compartment.
• The first time you turn the unit on, adjust the temperature
control knob to “MAX” and run for at least 2 hours before
putting foods inside. This will ensure the cabinet is
thoroughly chilled before food is put in.
• The range of the REFRIGERATOR temperature control is
from position "MIN" the warmest to "MAX" the coldest.
Adjust the temperature control to the setting that best
suits your needs. The setting of “MED” should be
appropriate for home or office refrigerator use.
•
NOTE;
•
•
•
•
•
If the unit is unplugged, loses power; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the
unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the refrigerator will not start.
Large amounts of food will lower the cooling efficiency of the appliance.
Do not place the foods on the air outlet, and leave spaces for airflow.
If you choose to change the thermostat setting, adjust thermostat control by one
increment at a time. Allow several hours for temperature to stabilize between
adjustments.
Adjusting the temperature control in the refrigerator compartment will affect the
temperature in both the refrigerator and the freezer compartment.
Changing The Light Bulb
Before removing the light bulb, turn off the refrigerator first
and then unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Failure to do so
could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
•
Use Phillips screwdriver to take out screw.

Remove the light cover by pulling downwards gently
•
Unscrew the bulb
•
Replace with a 15 watt-refrigerator bulb that is the same
shape and size.

OPERATING FREEZER COMPARTMENT
Temperature Control
•
•
•
Your refrigerator has one control for regulating the
temperature in the freezer compartment. The temperature
control is located on the center of the freezer compartment’s
interior back panel.
The first time you turn the unit on, adjust the temperature
control knob to “MAX” and run for at least 2 hours before
putting foods inside. This will ensure the cabinet is
thoroughly chilled before food is put in.
The range of the FREEZER temperature control is from
position "MIN" the warmest to "MAX" the coldest. Adjust the
temperature control to the setting that best suits your needs.
Ice Tray
It is for making ice, pour cool water into ice tray up to its 4/5
volume, place it in ice making chamber for two hours and the ice
can be made automatically. When you want to take ice cubes,
please twist the ice tray, and the ice cubes are separated from
the ice tray. But do not bend it, otherwise it will crack. If you want
to shorten the time of making ice, you can set the temperature
control knob at “MAX”.
Notes:
Do not store can foods or food stored in glass containers in the
freezer compartment.
The Freezer Compartment
• This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food. Storage time period is up
to three months.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
• Upon installation of your new appliance, it is recommended that it be cleaned thoroughly.
• Turn off the refrigerator first and then unplug the unit from the wall outlet.
• Remove all food content.
• Wash the inside with a damp warm cloth soaked in lukewarm water and baking soda solution.
The solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
• Be sure to keep the door gasket (seal) clean to keep the unit running efficiently.
• The outside of the refrigerator should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
• Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
• The condenser coils should be vacuumed when they are dusty or dirty.
Vacation Time
• Turn off the refrigerator first and then unplug the unit from the wall outlet.
• Remove all the food.
• Clean the refrigerator.
• Leave the lid open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold, or odors.
• Use extreme caution in the case of children. The unit should not be accessible to child’s play.
• Short vacations: Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
• Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug
the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave
the door open slightly: blocking it open if necessary or have the door removed.
Moving Your Refrigerator
• Turn off the refrigerator first and then unplug the unit from the wall outlet.
• Remove all the food.
• Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.
• Tape the doors shut.
• Be sure the refrigerator stays in the upright position during transportation.
Energy Saving Tips
• The refrigerator should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing
appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator. Overloading the
refrigerator forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or
spoil.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator.
This cuts down on frost build-up inside the refrigerator.
• Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many
items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
