IMPORTANT WARNINGS
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
ABOUT GROUNDING (EARTHING)
Use this appliance on a dedicated circuit; that is,
an outlet that is the only outlet on the circuit.
Overloading a circuit causes low voltage,
malfunction, possible damage to the equipment,
and poor cooling capacity.
Check your local electric code or consult a
qualified electrician if you have questions.
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 SUPPLY PLUG
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned
that the supply plug is accessible for quick
disconnection if an accident happens.
DO NOT MODIFY OR EXTEND THE
POWER CORD LENGTH
It will cause electric shock
or fire.
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or replacement 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,

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.
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.
●
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.

CLEANING
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment
shelves, door racks, storage trays and magnetic

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 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, however, remember that
damp objects will stick or adhere to extremely
cold surfaces. Do not touch frozen surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
WARNING
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.
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.
• Caution for Cleaning Not in use : Surface
active agent, Car wax, Anticorrosive, All sorts
of oil, Gasoline, Acids, Wax.
• Usable Detergent Vegetable dish washable
solution, Soapy water.

change.
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,
Anti - Condensation
Pipe
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.
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.
