OPERATIONS
STARTING
When your refrigerator is first installed, allow it 3-4 hours to stabilize at normal operating temperatures
prior to filling it with fresh or frozen foods.
If operation is interrupted, allow 5 minutes delay before restarting.
BEFORE SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
This refrigerator has one temperature control knob for the refrigerator compartment and one temperature
control dial for the freezer compartment.
The default setting of the temperature control knob for the refrigerator compartment is '4'.
The default setting of the temperature control dial in the freezer compartment is '3' .
This dial controls the air flow balance between the Freezer and Refrigerator compartment. This Freezer dial
does not control the cycling of the compressor.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
CONTROLS FOR REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
For colder temperatures, in both the Freezer and Refrigerator compartments, adjust the refrigerator
control knob to a higher number (MAX), and for warmer temperatures, adjust the control knob to
a lower number (MIN position).

<Type A>
<Type B>
The higher the number the Freezer setting is set to, the lower the temperature of the freezer compartment
will become.
Since the temperature of the refrigerator and freezer compartments is controlled with a fixed amount of
cooled air, the refrigerator compartment will be warmer if the freezer compartment becomes colder.
When the freezer compartment is not cold enough in summer, adjust the control in the freezer to High (4~5)
for type A or (3~4) for type B.
Setting the Freezer dial at (4~5) for type A or (3~4) for type B will maintain a low temperature in the freezer.
But the Refrigerator's cooling speed will be reduced. When set to (4~5) for type A or (3~4) for type B during
hotter climates, it may also be necessary to adjust the refrigerator compartment temperature to a cooler
temperature (6~7).
The Freezer dial setting 5 ~ 7 for type B is for quick freezing in the freezer compartment. This setting may
cause the compressor to run for extended periods or the Refrigerator compartment to become warmer. This is
dependent of the position of the Dial in the Refrigerator compartment.

OPERATION
How to remove the Pull Out Tray
Fully extend the Pull-Out-Tray and lift the front then pull it out slowly.
DEFROSTING
Defrosting takes place automatically.
The defrosted water from the evaporator flows down to the evaporating tray which is located in
the lower back side of the refrigerator and is then evaporated by natural convection.
DEODORIZER (SOME MODELS)
By using a catalyst, the deodorizing performance is optimised.
Unpleasant odors of food into the fresh food compartment are deodorized
.
Deodorizer Function
Do not poke or probe at the deodorizing catalyst with a sharp object as this will damage it.
When storing food with a strong odor, wrap it or store it in a container with a lid as the the odor may be
passed on to other foods.

SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
STORING FOOD
�
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an important
factor
in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
�
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as bananas, pineapples, and
melons.
�
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil other food and
lead to higher electricity bills!
�
When storing, cover food with vinyl wrap or store in a container with a lid. This prevents moisture from
evaporating and helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
�
Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator temperatures
even.
�
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open for longer than necessary. Opening the door lets
warm air enter the refrigerator, causing temperatures to rise.
FREEZER COMPARTMENT
�
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break or explode when frozen.
�
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This deteriorates taste and nutrition.
�
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer shelf,
not in the door basket.
Avoid storing any food close to the bottom area of the freezer shelf to keep efficient air circulation.
�
�
It is recomended to load food at least 25mm for type A or 15mm for type B against back of
freezer wall, it will keep good air circulation in the freezer compartment (see page 12).
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
�
Avoid placing moist food deeply within the refrigerator shelf, it could freeze upon direct contact with
chilled air.
�
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and wiped,
and packed food should be wiped clean to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
�
When storing eggs in their storage rack, ensure that they are fresh. Always store them in a upright
position, which keeps them fresh longer.
15
CLEANING
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to
prevent undesirable odors. Spilled food should be
