otherwise every increasing of the temperature
when defrosting, will shorten life time of the food.
3. Never keep too much food in freezer because they can block
air circulation.
4. When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in container
with a lid. This prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food
to keep its taste and nutrients.
5. Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in freezer could spoil other
food and lead to higher energy consumption.
6. Do not store bottles in the freezer - they may break when frozen.
7. Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrient.
8. Never keep too much food in door rack because they must push against by
freezer rack so that the door cannot be fully closed.
9. A void open the unit door recently and try not adding the food while frozen
processing. Opening the door lets warm air enter the freezer, and cause
temperature to rise.
10. Do not store carbonate package and carbonate drink to be frozen.
11. Do not touch any cold surface with hand especially when still wet. For ice, it shall
not directly be used, due to can burn the skin.
12. Freezer will keep foodtemperature along 1-2 hours while electricity doesn’t work out,
as long the door still closed. But if the situation predicted takes longer time, just take
out the food. For fresh food, cook it before restored.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL & DEFROSTING
1. TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Freezer temperature will change according to stored food quantity, how recent you
open the unit door and room temperature.
There will be “OFF, MIN, MID, MAX” mark on temperature controller knob to
enhance you to chose the requirement temperature.
“OFF”position : not operate.
“MIN” position : highest frozen temperature, warmest area.
“MID” position : best temperature for keeping the food on Fridge “F” area.
“MAX” position :
lowest frozen temperature, coldest.
2. DEFROSTING
- You should do defrosting regularly, in order to keep the unit works efficiently.
- If you want to do defrosting, just turn the knob to “OFF” position so defrost water
will run out to tray drip. It is better to do total defrosting regularly one a month by
unplug power cord from the power outlet.
- For faster defrosting, place 1 or 2 pan with warm water on the unit.
- Always wrap the food when defrosting otherwise straightway consume the food.

GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
During average length vacations, you will
probably find it best to leave the freezer
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.
If you move, empty the freezer
(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 freezer
(freezer). Secure any loose items, such
as racks, bins, ice trays, etc. Do not try to
move a loaded freezer.
POWER FAILURE
Most power failures are corrected in an hour
or two and will not affect your freezer
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.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
The outside wall of the freezer
cabinet may sometimes get warm,
especially just after Anti-Condensation
installation.
Pipe
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the
anti-condensation pipe,
which pumps hot
refrigerant to prevent
sweating on the outer cabinet wall.
This appliance is intended to be used in
household and similar applications such as:
- Staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and
other working environments.
- Farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels
and other residential type environments.
- Bed and breakfast type environments.
- Catering and similar non-retail applications.

qualified electrician if you have questions.
The freezer-freezer should be so positioned
that the supply plug is accessible for quick
disconnection if an accident happens.
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.
