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 open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and cause
temperatures to rise.
FREEZER, CHILLER ROOM
Do not store bottles in the freezer or chiller room - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrition.
REFRIGERATOR ROOM
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.
Door rack - Loading the food on the whole area of door rack would cause no problems in performance.
CLEANING
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment shelves,
door racks, storage trays and magnetic door seals
etc. 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.
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.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse
abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on
any surface.
WARNING
Before you clean, however, remember that damp
objects will stick or adhere to extremely cold
surfaces. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or
damp hands.
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.
Cautions for cleaning:
Do not use flammable or toxic cleaning liquids.
Do not use : surface active agent.
car wax, anticorrosive, all sorts of oil,
gasoline, acids, wax.
Use usable detergent : vegetable dish
washable solution, soapy water.
When careless using, it can occur a color change.
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 durable finish of your refrigerator. Wipe
with a clean, damp cloth and then dry.

GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
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.
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.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
The outside wall of the refrigerator Anti-Condensation
Pipe
cabinet may sometimes get warm,
especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the anti-condensation
pipe, which pumps hot refrigerant to
prevent "sweating" on the outer
cabinet wall.
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.
LAMP REPLACEMENT
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove refrigerator shelves.
3. To remove the lamp cover, insert a slotted driver at the left side hole of the lamp
cover and twist it.
4. Turn the lamp counterclockwise.
5. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly.
Replacement bulb must be the same specification as original.
IMPORTANT WARNINGS
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
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.
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.
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.
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.
