INSTALLING THE FRIDGE/FREEZER
Allow an adequate space and install the fridge/freezer on a firm, level floor.
• If the appliance is not level, there may be unusual noises and poor cooling.
• Wait for at least five minutes before plugging the appliance in.
Clean the fridge/freezer.
• Wipe and clean the appliance inside and outside with a damp cloth.
Plug the fridge/freezer into a wall socket used exclusively by this appliance.
• This appliance must be properly earthed.
Place the food in the fridge/freezer.
• Set the temperature control to the colder temperature and let the refrigerator operate for one
hour. The freezer should get slightly chilled and the motor should run smoothly with a soft hum
and no noise. Your fridge/freezer is operated by a compressor which switches “on and off” to
maintain the internal temperature. When the compressor is new, it requires running in for a period
of up to five months. During this period, it may be slightly noisy. This is quite normal and does not
represent a fault.
Warning
Use of an grounded socket exclusively for the appliance:
• If you are using a socket with an earthing terminal, you
do not require a separate earthing connection.
Use of a no grounded wire socket:
• Connect the “grounding wire” to the copper plate and bury
2
it at a depth of at least 25 cm in the ground.
LEVELLING
If the front of the appliance is slightly higher than the rear, the door can be opened and closed more easily.
The appliance tilts down to the left.
Turn the left adjusting leg in the direction of the arrow until
the appliance is level.
The appliance tilts down to the right.
Turn the right adjusting leg in the direction of the arrow until the
appliance is level.
Caution
• When the level adjustment legs are not fixed on the
floor, the refrigerator could move.
• Please tie up the extra length of the power cord at the
back of the refrigerator so as not to be touched on the
floor preventing the power cord from being crushed by the
rollers upon relocation.
❊ What if they do not make the ground circuit correctly.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
The appliance is not operating at all or the temperature is too high
• Check that the power plug is correctly connected.
• Is the temperature controller in the fridge/freezer correctly set?
• Is there direct sunlight on the appliance or are there heat sources nearby?
• Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall?
The food in the refrigerator is frozen
• Is the temperature controller in the fridge set to the colder temperature?
• Is the ambient temperature too low?
• Did you put food with a high water content in the refrigerator?
There are unusual noises
• Check that the appliance is installed on a stable, level floor.
• Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall?
• Have any foreign objects fallen behind or under the appliance?
• Is the noise coming from the compressor in the appliance?
• A ticking sound may be heard inside the appliance; this is normal. This sound occurs when the various
accessories contract or expand.
The front corners and sides of the appliance are warm and condensation starts to form
• Heat-proof pipes are installed in the front corners of the appliance to prevent condensation from forming.
When the surrounding temperature rises, this may not always be effective. However, this is not abnormal.
• In very humid weather, condensation may form on the outer surface of the appliance when the moisture
in the air comes into contact with the cool surface of the appliance.
You can hear a liquid gurgling in the appliance.
• This is the refrigerant, which cools the inside of the appliance.
There is a smell inside the appliance
• Food may not be sealed correctly in a container.
• If there is a smell, the low temperature catalysing deodorizer may require cleaning.
There is a layer of frost on the appliance’s walls
• Is the air outlet on the appliance blocked?
• Space the food out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
• Is the door fully closed?
Condensation forms on the inside wall of the appliance and around vegetables
• Food with a high water content is stored uncovered with a high humidity level or the door has been left
open for a long time.
• Store the food with a cover or in sealed containers.

USAGE PRECAUTIONS
Store food with a high water content at the
front of a refrigerator shelf.
Store hot food in the appliance after it has
cooled.
• If you store cold food, you save on electricity and
improve refrigeration.
Tips
Power Saving Tips
• Install the appliance in a cool, dry place 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 the time for which the door is opened, the less ice will form in the freezer.
• When freezing food or storing it in the freezer, place the food in freezer compartment in sealed
containers.
