Safety information _5 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.

The food in the refrigerator is frozen. • Is the temperature control on the front panel set to the coldest temperature? • Is the surrounding temperature too low? There are unusual noises. • Check if the appliance is installed on a stable and even floor. • Is the back of the appliance too close 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 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 bubbling in the appliance. • This is the refrigerant, which cools the inside of the appliance. There is a bad smell inside the appliance. • Is there any spoiled food inside of the refrigerator? • Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it is airtight. • Clean out your refrigerator periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food. There is a layer of frost on the appliances walls. • Are the air outlet vents blocked by food stored inside the refrigerator? • 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. Troubleshooting _11 03 TROUBLESHOOTING The appliance is not operating at all or the temperature is too high.
