Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting
process, other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartment of the
appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.
The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas used in the appliance require
special disposal procedures. When disposal, please consult with services
agent or a similarly qualified person.
This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane refrigerant (R600a),
natural gas with high environmental compatibility, but it is also combustible.
When transporting and installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure
that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged. Refrigerant squirting out
of the pipes could ignite or cause an eye injury. if a leak is detected, avoid any
naked flames or potential sources of ignition and air the room in which the
appliance is standing for several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas air mixture if a leak in the
refrigerating circuit occurs, the size of the room in which the appliance
may be sited depends on the amount of refrigerant used. The room must be
2
1 m in size for every 8g of R600a refrigerant inside the appliance. The amount
of refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on the identification plate
inside the appliance. Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage.
if in doubt, consult your dealer.

DEODORIZER (OPTIONAL)
●
Unpleasant odor of food in fresh food
compartment is deodorized with no harm to
you and the food.
How to use
• As Deodorizer is located in cooling air inlet for circulating air in fresh food compartment, there is
no need for any handling.
• Do not prick the cooling air inlet with a sharp tip because Deodorizer may be damaged.
• When storing food with a strong odor, wrap it or store it in a container with a lid because odor may be
passed on to other foods.
Re-Using of Deodorizer
• Used some length and the odor is strong,
Deodorizer can be revived and re-used.
• Separate Deodorizer in ceiling of refrigerator
compartment, using hair drier to remove
moisture or malodor and oxidize under sunlight
to decomposing malodor by ultraviolet.
GREEN ION DOOR COOLING
(OPTIONAL)
Cool air vent
The anion coating in the duct cover purifies the air and
helps stored foods remain fresh longer.
If water of foreign substances enter the cool air vent while
cleaning, efficiency will be lowered. In addition, if gasket is
damaged, efficiency may be lowered owing to the escape
of cool air.

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 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.
FREEZER 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.
It is recomended to load food at least 15mm against back of freezer wall, it will keep good air
circulation in the freezer compartment.
Loading for Freezing - It is recommended to load newly introduced foods on the following
position for freezing:
Freezer Door Basket, marked (
storage of frozen food (optional).
) is -12°C compartment, that is suitable for short term
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
●
Avoid placing moist food on deep interior refrigerator
shelves, it could freeze upon direct contact with chilled
air. To avoid this it is better to store food in the 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 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.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS

ABOUT GROUNDING (EARTHING)
If possible, connect the refrigerator to its own
individual electrical outlet to prevent it and other
appliances or household lights from causing an
overload that could cause a power outage.
In the event of an electric short circuit, grounding
(earthing) reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electric current.
In order to prevent possible electric shock, this
appliance must be grounded.
ACCESSIBILITY OF SUPPLY PLUG
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned that
the supply plug is accessible for quick disconnection
when accident happens.
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
the manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly
qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in an
electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or
service person if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if you have doubts on
whether the appliance is properly grounded.
DO NOT MODIFY OR EXTEND THE
POWER CORD LENGTH.
It will cause electric shock
or fire.
Keep the key out of the reach of children
and not in the vicinity of the refrigerator
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
This appliance must be grounded (earthed).
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove either gaskets,
latches, lids or the entire door from your
unused appliance, or take some other action
to make it harmless.
Do not store inflammable materials, explosives
or chemicals in the refrigerator.

It is recommended to install the earth to prevent electric shock in
case of electricity leakage.
How to connect the earth wire:
• Connect the earth wire's metal ring end to the earth screw
on the back of the refrigerator.
• Peel off the cable sheath/insulation at the other end of the earth wire. Attach the peeled wire
to a metal screw/nail and then drive it through the wall or ground.
Do not connect the earth wire to the following locations.
• Gas pipe
It could produce sparks which lead to fire and explosion.
• Telephone earth wire and lightning rod
It is dangerous during lightning.
• Water pipe and water tap
The earth wire connection will not work when the middle of the water pipe is made of plastic.
If it is connected to a metal water pipe, it could cause someone to be electrocuted.
When installing the product in a humid or wet location, you must install the earth wire.
Ex) • Unfloored or dirt floored room (Room with dirt and no floor), concrete floor
• Location where it can get wet such as near the sink
• Location where water can leak or is humid such as basement
• Other wet or humid location
Especially, for locations where it always get wet such as near the restaurant sink, you are obligated by
the law to install a circuit breaker in addition to the earth wire.
After consulting with your retailer or electric construction company, you must do the earth wire
construction (Type 3 earth construction). Please note that earth construction could incur extra fees.
