Troubleshooting
The refrigerator does
not work, does not
refrigerate
– The plug hasn’t been plugged properly.
– No power, power outlet failure.
– The refrigerator powered off during running, and
powered on again within 5 minutes
The refrigerator is not
cold enough
– The refrigerator door hasn’t been closed properly.
– The refrigerator is next to heat sources or exposed
to direct sunlight.
– Poor ventilation around the refrigerator, and slow
heat elimination.
Long-running of the
refrigerator
– The refrigerator door has been opened too
frequently; the door hasn’t been closed properly.
– Poor ventilation outside the refrigerator, and slow
heat elimination of the refrigerator.
– Place a large amount of food into the refrigerator
at one time; food is stacked too close, affecting air
circulation.
No refrigeration, not cold
enough, too cold
There’s unusual noise in
the refrigerator
The refrigerating
compartment is too
cold, and food is frozen
– The refrigerating temperature is too low, users are
recommended to adjust the temperature to a higher
degree.
– The food stored contacts with the cold source of
the rear wall of the refrigerating compartment.
The refrigerator is not on
a flat place
– If the refrigerator is placed a little uneven, the running
noise will increase; the level of the refrigerator can
be adjusted by rotating the adjuster at the bottom of
the refrigerator
Sound of airflow or
gurgling sound of water
flow
– The temperature inside the refrigerator can be
quickly lowered through the flow of refrigerant in the
pipeline. Refrigerants can be divided into two types,
namely gas and liquid; there may be a slight sound
in the flow process
Slight "hum" sound
– The compressor is working, and the sound is slightly
higher when it just starts. High efficient refrigerator
has a slightly higher sound due to the strong
working of the compressor
"Click", "bubble" sound
– When the refrigerator is powered on or powered
off, the start relay and thermal protector and other
electrical components may suddenly produce "click"
and "bubble" sound due to constant pick-up or
disconnection
Cracking sound or the
"pop" sound
– When the refrigerator is running, due to temperature
changes, food may produce cracking sound or the
evaporator and pipeline may produce "pop" sound
due to expansion on heating and contraction on
cooling
In summer, due to high ambient temperature, the refrigerator eliminates heat slowly, leading to
the working hours of the compressor too long.
Users are recommended to set the refrigerating temperature to "MIN".
In winter, the ambient temperature is low and has a small difference with the temperature
within the refrigerator, and then the refrigerating compartment will not be cold enough, which
is normal.
Users are recommended to set the refrigerating temperature to "MAX".
Troubleshooting_21

It will occur when the environment is very
humid.
Use a soft cloth to dry it.
Condensation in the fruit
and vegetable basket
–
–
When the door is kept open for a long time.
Liquid food is stored without adding a cover.
Defrosting water overflows

–
–
Water outlet is blocked.
Use the drain plug or similar tools to clear.
–
When the refrigerator is running, the
temperature of the refrigerating pipeline at the
internal back of the refrigerator is below 0°C,
then the back will frost or freeze when there’s
too much humidity inside the refrigerator.
After the refrigerator stops running, the frost
will automatically melt, and condensation and
water drops will appear.
It is recommended to clean once a month.
Food and the food containers can not be close
to the rear panel.

To prevent water vapor condensation on the
frame of the refrigerator, an anti-condensation
pipe is installed within the frame; the
refrigerator will be hot while running, which is
normal rather than a phenomenon of failure.
The two sides of the refrigerator are equipped
with heat elimination device (condenser), so the
occurrence of hot of the two sides is normal.
Strong smelling food should be wrapped tight.
Check for bad food.
The refrigerator needs cleaning.
The temperature inside the refrigerator is lowered through the compressor operating and
refrigerant circulation and other processes, so as to maintain the freshness and nutrition of
food. When the refrigerator is running, you will hear some slight sounds, which are normal,
please use it with ease.
