Cautions
Disposal of the old appliance
Before disposing an old appliance, please make sure it’s inoperative and safe. Unplug
the appliance and remove or destroy all of the springs, latches, or bolt-locks in order to
avoid the risk of child entrapment.
It must be noted that the refrigeration system contains insulating gases and refrigerants,
which require specialized waste disposal. The valuable materials contained in a refrigerator
can be recycled. Contact your local waste disposal center for proper disposal of
an old appliance and contact your local authority or your dealer if you have any question.
Please ensure that the pipe work of your refrigerator dose not get damaged prior to
being picked up by the relevant waste disposal center, and contribute to environmental
awareness by insisting on an appropriate, any-pollution method of disposal.
Disposal of the packaging of your new appliance
All the packaging materials employed in the package of your new appliance may be
disposed without any danger to the environment.
The cardboard box may be broken or cut into smaller pieces and given to a waste paper
disposal service. The wrapping foil is made of polyethylene and the polyethylene pads
and stuffing contain no fluorochloric hydrocarbon.
All these valuable materials may be taken to a waste collecting center and used again
after adequate recycling.
Consult your local authorities for the name and address of the waste materials collecting
centers and waste paper disposal services nearest to your house.

Refrigerator Diagram-- Preparation
1. Shelves
2. Vegetable and fruit tray
3. Temperature Controller
4. Egg tray
5. Bottle racks
This diagram may vary slightly with the layout of the refrigerator you have
just purchased due to technical improvements.
Preparation
Unpacking
Remove all packing materials.
Check attachments and materials
Checking should be conducted with reference to the Packing List. Contact the local
distributor if discrepancies are found.
Ensure proper location of the refrigerator.
*Make sure the refrigerator is kept upright during handling. If an inclination is required,
it should not exceed 45 degrees. Otherwise the appliance may get damaged resulting
not only in compromised refrigeration performance.
*To avoid product damage or personal injury, the refrigerator should be unpacked
by two persons after it is located in a previously selected position.
*Before installation, make sure the refrigerator has no visible exterior damage.
*When handling the refrigerator, do not lift it by holding the worktop, to prevent
any damage to the refrigerator.
*Do not start up a refrigerator that is damaged.
Clean the refrigerator before use.
(See the following section “Cleaning”)
Idle time
After the refrigerator has been sited and cleaned, let it stand for more than 30 minutes
before connecting the power source

Operation
Starting the refrigerator
T
After connecting to the power supply, turn the temperature
controller clockwise from position 0 to any position
between 1 and 7 to start the refrigerator. The refrigerator
compressor will stop when the temperature controller
is at position 0.
Adjusting the temperature:
The temperature inside the refrigerator is adjusted by turning the temperature
controller. Positions 1 to 7 represent different temperatures from the lowest to the
highest.
Position
Conditions
1-2
Summer or ambient temperature between25-35℃
3-4
Spring, autumn or ambient temperature between15-25℃
4-5
Winter, or ambient temperature between5-15℃
6-7
Quick freeze
Caution: Some time will be required for the refrigerator to reach the set level when
temperature adjustments are made. The length of this period is determined by
difference in the existing and set temperatures, the ambient temperature, the frequency
with which the door is opened and closed and the amount of food in storage.
Loading the refrigerator with food
When the refrigerator is switched on, do not load food until 1~2 hours have passed.
Usually, food for cold storage or deep freezing can be loaded when the temperature
inside the compartment reaches the set point.
4
Instructions
Cold storage is for short-term food
storage or for daily consumption.
Although the temperature in most parts of the cold storage compartment can be regulated between 0
and 10 degrees Centigrade, extended periods of food storage is not recommended. Cold storage
should only be used for short-term storage.
Cold storage compartment
1. Eggs and butter
2. Pickled food and seasonings
3. Beverages and bottled food
4. Cookies, cooked food and milk
5. Meat and sausages
6. Fruits, vegetables and salads
Cautions for cold storage
* Hot food must be cooled to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator
Dry any water droplets on the food before placing it in the refrigerator.
It is recommended that food be sealed in suitable storage bags before being placed
in the refrigerator;this will prevent moisture in the food from evaporating and prevent
vegetables and fruit from withering or altering in flavor.
5
Instructions
* Do not store excess quantities or weights of food; food should be stored with spaces in
between for better storage results. Never overload shelves, as they may collapse under
excessive loads.
* Food to be stored should be sorted according to consumer requirements. Food consumed
daily should be placed in the most convenient area, this will minimize opening periods for
the door. Do not place food too close to the internal walls.
Food holder cleaning
* Food holders can be taken out for cleaning
Lamp :
*Lamp: 230V-240V, 1W
* Lamp mold: LED

Instructions
Instructions for food storage
*Storage period will be extended if vegetables are placed with their roots towards the cold source.
*Leaves of carrots or turnips should be removed before storage.
*Put a wad of tissue on the bottle holder before placing bottles on it so that later
cleaning is easier
*Onions, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts and other root vegetables should not be
stored in the refrigerator,as these foods are suitable for long-term storage at
normal temperatures.
*Ripe squash, melon, papaw, bananas and pineapples should not be stored
in the refrigerator.Freezing will accelerate the ripening process.

Defrosting-Cleaning -De-commissioning
Defrosting the cold storage compartment
The cold storage compartment is designed for automatic defrosting. Frost formed on the back wall
will melt and flow via the drainpipe to the evaporating container over the compressor on the back of
the refrigerator, where the heat generated by the compressor will evaporate the water.
Caution: Always keep the drain over the vegetable and fruit tray clear to ensure
the normal flow of defrosted water. Use the rod provided to clear any blockages.
Cleaning
The refrigerator should be cleaned regularly to prevent the formation of bad odors.
* Disconnect the power before cleaning the refrigerator.
* Do not use a hard brush, steel brush, detergent, gasoline or other solvents, hot water,
acid or alkali for cleaning.
* Wipe water drops on the surface of the refrigerator with a soft cloth.
(1) Do not use excessive amounts of water for cleaning the refrigerator
(2) Use a dry cloth to clean the switch, the lamp and the temperature controller
* Always keep the rubber door seal clean
* Clean the back and sides of the refrigerator regularly.
Cessation of Operation
If the power failure lasts for an extended period, unplug the refrigerator and clean the
refrigerator as previously described.
Keep the door of refrigerator open when the power is turned off to prevent any food
remaining in the compartment from producing bad odors.
Caution: It is recommended that the refrigerator is not turned off

Defrosting-Cleaning -De-commissioning
Power failure
Even in summer, food can be stored in the refrigerator for a few hours after a power failure.
* Don’t put additional food into the refrigerator during a power failure.
* Avoid opening the door during power failures
*If prior notice of a power failure is given, make some ice and put it in a container in the top
of the cold storage compartment.
Caution: temperature in the refrigerator will rise during a power failure or in the
event of technical problems, and the storage period will be reduced.
During Vacations
* Remove any food from refrigerator is the vacation is short. Turn the temperature selection
knob to the proper position, and make sure that the door of the refrigerator is properly
closed.
* If the vacation is long, take out the food from the refrigerator and disconnect the power.
When the frost inside melts, clean and dry the compartment.
