IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Read all of the instructions before using this appliance. If instructions are not
followed, you may lose your right to free service during the warranty period.
Please keep this manual in a safe place and pass it on to later users if
applicable.
When using this appliance, always exercise basic safety precautions, including
the following:
1. Do not connect your appliance to the power supply until all packing and
transit protectors have been removed.
2. Let it stand upright for at least 4 hours before switching it on to allow the
refrigerant system to settle if transported horizontally.
3. This appliance should not be used in a cold, unheated room such as a garage
or shed, or on an outdoor patio.
4. Upon delivery, check to make sure that the product is not damaged and that
all the parts and accessories are in perfect condition. Do not operate a
damaged appliance.
5. Use this appliance only for its intended purpose, that is, the storing and
freezing of edible foodstuffs.
6. This refrigerator must be properly installed in accordance with the Installation
instructions before it is used. See “Electrical Requirements” in the Installation
section.
7. Any electrical service cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged
must be repaired or replaced immediately. Do not use a cord that shows
cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at the plug or connector end.
8. Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making any repairs.
NOTE: If for any reason this product requires service, we strongly
recommend that a certified technician perform the service.
9. Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grasp the
plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.
10. Do not use any electrical device or any sharp instrument in defrosting your
refrigerator.
11. If your old refrigerator is not being used, we recommend that you remove the
doors and leave the shelves in place. This will reduce the possibility of danger
to children.
12. After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch the cold surfaces in the
freezer compartment, particularly when hands are damp or wet. Skin may
adhere to these extremely cold surfaces.
13. Do not refreeze foods which have been thawed completely. The United
States Department of Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 reads:
"...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if they still contain
ice crystals or if they are still cold – below 40°F.
2
"...Thawed ground meats, poultry or fish that have any off-odor or off-color
should not be refrozen and should not be eaten. Thawed ice cream should be
discarded. If the odor or color of any food is poor or questionable, discard it.
The food may be dangerous to eat.
"...Even partial thawing and re-freezing reduce the eating quality of foods,
particularly fruits, vegetables and prepared foods. The eating quality of red
meats is affected less than that of many other foods. Use refrozen foods as
soon as possible, to save as much of their eating quality as you can."
14. This refrigerator should not be recessed or built into an enclosed cabinet. It is
designed for freestanding installation only. See Installation instructions.
15. Do not operate your refrigerator in the presence of explosive fumes.
16. Do not allow children to play with the appliance, or to sit or stand on the
appliance or on pull-out parts.
17. Do not hang on the appliance doors.
18. Do not dispose of the appliance in a fire. The appliance contains substances
in the insulation which are flammable.
19. Avoid touching the metal condenser wiring on the back of the appliance.
There is a risk of injury.
20. In the event of a possible malfunction, disconnect the appliance from the
power supply first.
21. Prior to cleaning, always unplug the appliance or switch off the circuit breaker.
DANGER!
Risk of child entrapment!
• 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.
!

but remain illuminated until the freezer temperature returns to normal.
Refrigerator compartment
Food storage:
The refrigerator compartment is for the short-term storage of fresh food and
drinks. Position food so that air can circulate around it freely.
Raw meat is best kept wrapped or in a sealed plastic bag near the bottom of the
refrigerator compartment.
Allow hot foods and beverages to cool to room temperature prior to placing them
in the refrigerator.
Defrosting:
The refrigerator compartment defrosts automatically. The
thawing water flows through the drain channel into a collection
container at the rear of the appliance.
Check the flow of the thawed water from time to time. The drain
hole may become plugged occasionally. Clean it with a Q-tip or
similar item. See figure.
Freezer compartment
Freezing food:
You can use the appliance for freezing fresh food as well as for storing prefrozen food. Please refer to the recommendations given on the food packaging.
! Attention
Do not freeze carbonated beverages, as the container may burst when the
liquid is frozen.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance. See the rating label
inside the unit. In order to maintain the quality of the food, the freezing must
take place as rapidly as possible. Thus, the freezing capacity will not be
exceeded and the temperature inside the freezer will not rise.
! Attention
Keep freshly placed food separated from already deep-frozen foods.
If warm or hot food is placed in the freezer, the cooling compressor will work
until the food is completely frozen. This can temporarily cause excessive
cooling of the refrigerator compartment.
If you find the freezer door difficult to open just after you have closed it, don’t
worry. This is due to a pressure difference which will equalize and allow the
door to open normally after a few minutes.
10
Defrosting:
The freezer compartment defrosts automatically.
!
WARNINGS!
• The fan inside the freezer compartment circulates cold air. Never insert
any object through the guard. Do not allow children to play with the freezer
fan.
• To ensure that you obtain the best possible performance from your
appliance, do not obstruct the freezer fan guard.
• Never store products that contain inflammable propellant gas (e.g., spray
cans) or explosive substances.
Food Storage Information
Fresh food
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When storing fresh food that is not prepackaged, be sure to wrap or store it in
airtight and moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This will ensure
proper shelf life and prevent the transfer of odors and tastes.
Wipe containers before storing to avoid needless messes.
Eggs should be stored in an upright position in their original carton or in the
supplied egg tray to maximize shelf life.
Fruit should be washed and dried, then put into in sealed plastic bags before
storing in the refrigerator.
Vegetables with skins should be stored in plastic bags or containers.
Leafy vegetables should be washed and dried, then stored in plastic bags or
containers.
Hot food should be allowed to cool before storing in the refrigerator. This will
prevent unnecessary energy use.
Fresh seafood should be used the same day as purchased.
When storing meats in the fresh food section, keep in the original packaging or
rewrap as necessary. Follow the suggestions below for safe storage:
Chicken
1 - 2 days
Ground beef
1 - 2 days
Cold cuts
3 - 5 days
Steaks/roasts
3 - 5 days
Smoked/cured meats
7 - 10 days
All others
1 - 2 days

Cleaning and Care
!
Warning! To avoid electric shock, always unplug your refrigerator or
switch off the circuit breaker before cleaning. Ignoring this warning may
result in death or injury.
Interior and exterior surfaces
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Remove foods from the appliance before cleaning and store them in a cool,
covered place.
Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could accumulate in
electrical components.
Before cleaning the interior, remove shelves and drawers.
Prepare a cleaning solution of 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with
warm water. Use a sponge or soft cloth dampened with the cleaning solution
to wipe down your appliance, as well as the shelves and drawers.
Rinse with clean warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use harsh chemicals, abrasives, ammonia, chlorine bleach,
concentrated detergents, organic solvents or metal scouring pads. Some of
these chemicals may dissolve, damage and/or discolor your refrigerator.
Do not allow water to come into contact with the electrical connections on the
temperature control or the interior light.
Once everything is dry, return the shelves, drawers and food to the interior
and put the appliance back into service.
If the appliance is not going to be used for a long time, switch it off and
remove all food. Clean the appliance and keep the doors open.
To preserve the appearance of your appliance, you can polish the exterior and
the door accessories with a silicone wax.
Clean the condenser coils at the back of the appliance once a year using a
brush or a vacuum cleaner. Dust build-up leads to increased energy
consumption.
Clean door gaskets every three months using a baking soda solution as
described above. Gaskets must be kept clean and pliable to ensure a proper
seal.
Petroleum jelly applied lightly on the hinge side of gaskets will keep the
gaskets pliable and ensure a good seal.
Changing the light bulb

is of the same shape and size as the original.
d) Replace the plastic cover and reconnect the unit.
If there is a power failure
Try to avoid opening the doors during a power failure. Frozen food in the freezer
compartment should not be affected if the power failure lasts no longer than a
day or two.
If the power failure lasts longer than this, the food should be checked and either
consumed immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.
Normal Operating Noises
Various sounds you will hear are completely normal and are caused by the
operation of the cooling system of your appliance:
•
Gurgling, hissing, boiling or bubbling noises are caused by the refrigerant
circulating inside the cooling system. These noises can still be heard for a
short time after the compressor shuts off.
• Sudden sharp cracking or popping noises are caused by the expansion and
contraction of the inside walls or some components inside the cabinets.
• Buzzing, whirring, pulsating or high-pitched humming noises are caused by
the compressor. These noises are slightly louder at the start-up of the
compressor cycle and reduce when the appliance reaches the operating
temperatures.
To avoid disturbing vibrations and unnecessary noises, make sure that:
•
Your refrigerator is standing level on all four feet.
• Your refrigerator is not in contact with the walls, surrounding objects or kitchen
cabinets and furniture.
• Cans, bottle or dishes inside the refrigerator are not touching and rattling
against each other.
• All shelves and bins are mounted correctly inside the refrigerator cabinets and
doors.
