Suggestion on food storage
Storing foods
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, and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher electric 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 cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too many foods in door rack because they may be interrupted by inner
racks so that the door cannot be fully closed.
Freezer
compartment
Refrigerator
compartment
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break 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 rack.
Do not touch the cold foods or containers- especially made of metallic -, with wet
hands and place glass products in the freezer compartment.
- That’s why you may have chilblains and they may be broken when their inner matters
are frozen, causing personal injury.
Avoid placing moist food upmost refrigerator shelves, 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, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always
store them in a up-right position, which keeps them fresh longer.
NOTE
•
15
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent openning of the door
or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause dew to form which has no effect on its
performance. Remove the dew with dust cloth free from care.

Care and maintenance
General information
Vacation time
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 not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor formation.
Power failure
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your
refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
If you move
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
Anti
condensation
pipe
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation.
Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which pumps hot
refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator.
Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Exterior
Interior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments a baking soda solution or a
mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the power consent.
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 an electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline
solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
