temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door
openings while the power is off.
But should the power failure last more than
24hours, remove all frozen food.
For doors or lids fitted with locks and keys, the
keys be kept out of the reach of children and
not in the vicinity of the refrigerating appliance, in
order to prevent children from being locked inside.
CAUTION
ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR PROPER
USAGE
• Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours after
installation.
• To get best performance of product,
- Do not place foods too closely in front of
the vents at the rear of the appliance as it
can obstruct free air circulation in the freezer
compartment.
- Wrap the food up properly or place it in airtight
containers before put it into the fridge freezer
- Do not put any newly introduced food for
freezing near to already frozen food.
• There is no need to disconnect the refrigerator
from the power supply if you will be away for
less than three weeks. But, remove all the food
if you are going away for three weeks or more.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it, rinse and
dry.
• The appliance might not operate consistently
(possibility of defrosting of contents or
temperature becoming too warm in the frozen
food compartment) when sited for an extended
period of time below the cold end of the range
of temperatures for which the refrigerating
appliance is designed.
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as bananas, melons.
• Place the ice tray at the originally provided
posistion by manufacturer in order to achieve
optimal ice-freezing.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there
is no need to manually defrost your appliance,
as this will be carried out automatically.
• Temperature rising during the defrost can
comply with ISO requirement. But If you want
to prevent an undue rise in the temperature of
the frozen food while defrosting the appliance,
please wrap the frozen food in several layers of
paper such as newspaper.
• Any increase in temperature of frozen food
during defrosting can shorten its storage life.
Saving Energy Tips
- Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with
adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight and
never put it near a direct source of heat (radiator, for
example).
- Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance.
- Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in
the appliance.
- Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the
frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
- Do not keep the door of the appliance open for too
long when putting food in or taking food out.
The shorter time for which the door is open, the less
ice will form in the freezer.
- Clean the rear of the refrigerator regularly. Dust
increases energy consumption.
- Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
- Ensure sufficient air exhaust at the refrigerator base
and at the back wall of the refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent openings.
- Allow clearance to the right, left, back and top when
installing.
This will help reduce power consumption and keep
your energy bills lower.

troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The refrigerator does not
work at all or it does not
chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat
source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore
keeping air from circulating?
The food in the fridge is
frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room very low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest
part of the fridge? Try moving those items into the body of the
fridge instead of keeping them in the CoolSelect Zone™ drawer.
You hear unusual noises or
sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore
keeping air from circulating?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. This is
normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting
or expanding in relation to the temperature of the refrigerator
interior.
The front corners of the
appliance are hot and
condensation is occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the
front corners of the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you
leave the door open for a long time.
You can hear water
bubbling in the refrigerator.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant
liquid circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in the
