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 the food, cover it 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. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and
causes 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 causes loss of 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.
Loading the Freezer - It is recommended to load newly introduced foods in the following
freezer location for freezing:
Newly Introduced Food
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
●
Avoid placing moist food deeply positioned on the
refrigerator shelf, it could freeze upon direct contact
with chilled air. To avoid this it is better to store food in
a covered container.
●
It is desirable to store moist food (especially vegetable
and fruit) in the vegetable storage compartment. If it is
necessary to store on a shelf of the refrigerator, put it
close to the door away from the back wall of the
refrigerator to avoid being frozen by the cool circulating air in the refrigerator.
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, and always store them
in a up-right position, which keeps them fresh longer.
17
CLEANING
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean
to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled food should
be wipe up immediately, since it may acidify and
stain plastic surfaces if allowed to settle.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes,
coarse abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline
solutions on any surface.
Before you clean, remember that damp
objects will stick or adhere to extremely cold
surfaces. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet
or damp hands.
EXTERIOR - Use a lukewarm solution of mild
soap or dish washable solution to clean the
durable finish of your refrigerator. Wipe with a
clean, damp cloth and then dry.
INTERIOR - Regular cleaning of the interior and
interior parts is recommended. Use a lukewarm
solution of mild soap or dish washable solution to
clean the inner lining of your refrigerator. Wipe
with a clean, damp cloth and then dry.
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment
shelves, door racks, storage trays and magnetic
door seals etc. Using a lukewarm solution of mild
soap or dish washable solution to clean
the inner lining of your refrigerator. Wipe
with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
18
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall
outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts(lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or
cloth to prevent water or liquid from getting
into any electrical part and causing electric
shock. Do not use flammable or toxic cleaning
liquids.
• Do not use : Surface
active agents, Car wax, Anticorrosive, or any kind
of oil, Gasoline, Acids, Wax.
• Only use dish washable
solution, and soapy water when cleaning.

external finishes to change colour.
GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
During average length vacations, you will probably
find it best to leave the refrigerator in operation.
Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan to be away for an extended period,
remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean
the interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN
to prevent odor formation.
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may
sometimes get warm,
especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the anticondensation pipe, which
pumps hot refrigerant to
prevent "sweating" on the
outer cabinet wall.
Do not attach any fixture to
the refrigerator by drilling,
gluing or screwing into it.
POWER FAILURE
Most power failures are corrected in an hour or two
and will not affect your refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door
openings while the power is off. During power
failures of longer duration, place a block of dry ice on
top of your frozen packages.
IF YOU MOVE
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items
inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the leveling screw(s), turn them
all the way into the base.
This appliance is intended to be used in normal
domestic household and similar applications
such as:
- Staff kitchen areas in offices and other working
environments.
- By clients in hotels, motels and other
residential type environments.
