as this may damage the hinges.
1. Place the refrigerator on a flat, firm surface and using a spirit-level, level it by
turning the two front “feet” clockwise or anti-clockwise. This will help
eliminate noise caused by vibration.
2. Choose a properly ventilated area. There should be at least 10cm of open space
along the sides, top and back of the refrigerator.
3. Select a location away from heating sources, direct sunlight, ovens etc. Also,
the area should be dry and free of damp, stale air.

to the “3” position and switch on the electricity.
The compressor will start and the light must be on.
Close the door at least 30 minutes. After this time, the temperature of the back
wall should have decreased noticeably, if this is the case, it indicates that the
refrigerator operates correctly.
Allow the refrigerator to run for two hours before packing anything into it. This
will ensure quicker cooling of food and this will in turn lead to food staying
fresher for longer.
A temperature control selector controls the temperature inside the refrigerator,
and this is installed on the sidewall of the refrigerator.
By turning the temperature control selector right or left, one can regulate the
temperature inside the refrigerator.
The numbers on the selector are temperature grades and should not be mistaken
for temperature indications measured in degrees. “0” indicates the OFF position,
while “5” indicates the coldest position. The temperature control select or
should be set according to the user’s individual requirements.

and causing smells inside the refrigerator.

preserve freshness.
2. Fresh produce and food should be wrapped or placed in suitable containers to
avoid contamination and the loss of water and transferring of smells.
