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
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT
It will cause electric
shock or fire.
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.
This appliance must be grounded (earthed).
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
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.
WARNING

OPERATIONS
CHILLED COMPARTMENT
When the door is opened, the warmer air doesn't influence
the fresh meat. You can keep food fresher in it.
DEFROSTING
●
Defrosting takes place automatically.
●
The defrosted water flows down to the evaporating tray which is located in the lower back side of the
refrigerator and is evaporated automatically.
DEODORIZER (OPTIONAL)
●
By using a catalyst, deodorizing performance is guaranteed.
●
Unpleasant odor of food in the fresh food compartment is deodorized with no harm to you and the food.
How to use
As the catalyst is located in cooling air outlet for circulating air in fresh food compartment, there is no
need to touch it.
●
Do not puncture the cooling air outlet with a sharp tip because the deodorizing catalyst may be
damaged.
●
When storing food with a strong odor, wrap it or store it in a container with a lid because the odor may
be absorbed by other foods.

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, cover food 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, causing
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 deteriorates 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.
●
Avoid storing any food close to the bottom area of the freezer shelf to keep efficient air circulation.
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
●
Avoid placing moist food deep inside 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 clean to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
●
When storing eggs in their storage rack, ensure that they are fresh. Always store them in a upright
position, which keeps them fresh longer.

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.
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 detergent 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. If you have the No
Frost model which defrosts automatically, leave
both doors open during the entire cleaning process.
Disconnect the power supply, and remove food and
all compartment shelves, storage trays etc.
Wash all compartments with a baking soda
solution. Rinse and dry.
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment shelves,
door racks, storage trays, and magnetic door seals
etc. with the baking soda solution or a mild deter-
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 a electric
shock. Do not use flammable or toxic cleaning liquids.

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 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.
POWER FAILURE
É
=áÅ
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.

DRY ICE WARNING
When using dry ice, provide adequate ventilation.
Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide (CO2).
When it vaporizes, it can displace oxygen, causing
dizziness, light-headedness, unconsciousness, and
death by suffocation.
Open a window and do not breathe the vapors.
IF YOU MOVE
If you move, empty the refrigerator (freezer)
completely and wash a mild solution of baking soda
and water. (2 TBS soda to 1 quart water)
Be sure the soda is completely dissolved to avoid
scratching the inside of the refrigerator (freezer).
Secure any loose items, such as racks, bins, ice
trays, etc. Do not try to move a loaded refrigerator.
Anti-Condensation
Pipe
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 refrigerant
to prevent sweating on the
outer cabinet wall.

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 one of
under hole of the lamp cover and pull it out forwards.
