Storage of Food
1. How to Use the Freezer
*Put fresh and clean food such like fish, meat into freezer to frozen store, therefore the
taste and nutrient of food are preserved.
*Wrap food to be frozen in ALUMINIUM FOIL or place it in AIRTIGHT boxes.
*Do not allow already frozen food into direct contact with food to be frozen.
*If you buy deep frozen food in the shops, bring it home and place it in freezer as quickly
as possible so that the time during which it kept in the air temperature is as SHORT AS
*Never place vegetables and fruits into freezer compartment in order to prevent them from
being frostbitten.
2. Fast Freezing
*Our freezers have a function of fast freezing. Compared with common freezing, fast
freezing can pass the zone in the fastest speed where the biggest ice crystals are formed.
Fast freezing enables the smallest ice crystals to form in the inside of food. Due to not
penetrating the cell membranes of the food, cytoplasm will not flow out while frost is
being removed, thus the taste and the nutrient of food are preserved.
*The fresh fish and meat to be stored for a long period of time should be fast frozen for this
*When fast freezing, please set the temperature control selector to the mark "5", after fast
freezing, set it to another position.
Transportation and Handing
When transporting, hold the base and lift the freezer carefully with the
tilted angle less than 45 degrees. Never hold the door handle as support. Never place it
upside down horizontal wise.

and with clear water, and wipe them dry.
Notes: Electric parts of the freezer can only be wiped by dry cloth.
2. Turn the thermostat knob to the "3" position, turn on electricity. The compressor will
begin to work.
3. Open the door 30 minutes later, if the temperature in the freezer decreased, it shows that
the freezer system works well. When the freezer operates for a period of time, the
temperature controller will automatically set the temperature within limits it opens.
Temperature Control
1. The temperature in the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment is controlled
by the temperature controller installed on the side wall of the refrigerator compartment.
2. Turn the thermostat knob to right or left, you can regulate the temperature inside the
3. The marks on the knob are the temperature grades, not the exact number of the degrees
of temperature.”0”” shows a forced STOP and “5” shows the lowest temperature. Turn the
knob from "1"position to "5"position, the temperature decreases continuously. You may set
the temperature control selector to any position according to what you need
4. Please set the selector to "3"position in normal use.
building in, clear of obstruction.

1. When the freezer has been working for a period of time, the surface of the evaporator
and the drawer will be covered with a layer of white frost. It may raise the electricity
consumption and lessen the effect of refrigeration. Then you should defrost at once.
2.When defrosting, cut off the power, open the door and move frozen foods to a shady and
cooling place, defrost with a plastic scraper, or let the temperature rise naturally till frost
melts. Then wipe away remaining ice and water, and switch on electricity again.
Notes: Never use sharp metal tools or it will damage the freezer.
*The appliance should be so positioned that the plug is easily accessible.
*If the supply cord is damaged, the manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly

*Turn on electricity only 5 minutes later after electricity goes off. Otherwise, the
compressor may be damaged.
*In order to save electricity consumption, keep air circulation during operation and the
package base should be taken away.
*Sure to keep electrical wire away from compressor and condenser, or its insulation
function will be spoiled by high temperature.
*To save the energy, you should reduce the frequency and duration of the opening of the
*When the frost in freezer 1s removed, or where there is no electricity or when freezer
ceases to be used, it should be cleaned in time in order to prevent it from smelling. Too
much frost may affect refrigeration.
