Defrosting
It is natural for moisture in the air to condense on the cold surface. This leads to a
regular build up of frost on the surface of the freezer and the cooling in the fresh
food compartment. This frost accumulation reduces the cooling effect, thereby
reducing efficiency. Therefore, periodic defrosting is necessary to ensure
optimum performance.
The water in the drain tray evaporates by natural evaporation if defrosting is
done once in two days. However, due to varied conditions of usage it is
desirable to check the drain-tray occasionally and dispose of the water, if any,
Please ensure that the chiller tray is in its correct position by pushing it to its
correct position by pushing it to its extreme. Otherwise the defrosting water
may fall over the contents of the refrigerator.
Manual Defrosting : However in some models, in case of defrosting or power
failure the water directly accumulates in chiller tray, dispose off water directly
from chiller tray by taking it out.
If water overflows from tray drip, disassemble it and remove the water from it.

USEFUL SUGGESTIONS
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 Wash all compartments
with a mild baking soda solution, then rinse and dry the compartment.
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 throughly and leave each door OPEN to prevent odour formation.
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
screws, turn them all the way into the base.
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
Check for yourself
Type of Complaint
Probable Cause
Remedy
1. Refrigerator does
not work.
–Thermostat switch
in 'OFF' position.
– Power Supply Off.
Check that the thermostat knob is on‘Normal' (No.4) position and not in off position.
Check that the refrigerator main supply plug is connected to the wall socket and
that the supply is on. Check that the fuse is intact in the supply line.
2. Refrigerator
attempts to start, but
does not operate.
– Low Voltage.
Install a line-correcting transformer in the mains, or a Voltage Stabilizer.
3. Refrigerator contents
not cooling.
– Defrosting over due
Defrost the refrigerator.
– Restriction of cold
air circulation.
– Improper thermostat
control selection.
– Entry of hot air.
Provide space in between the dishes. If the shelves are covered with cloth or
polythene, remove it.
If the refrigerator is required to give a low temperature turn the thermostat knob
towards colder (No.7) position.
Opening and closing of the door too often will result in hot air from outside rushing
into the refrigerator causing the temperature to go up. Reduce the frequency of
opening of the door
Avoid storing hot foods in the refrigerator, cool them to room temperature before
placing them inside the refrigerator.
– Storing hot foods.
4. Formation of water
drops on exterior
of refrigerator.
– High humidity during
monsoon season.
During the monsoon, when the humidity in the atmosphere reaches around 90%
water droplets may form around the sides of the refrigerator cabinet, especially the
top portion. This moisture should be wiped off periodically. Contact our serviceman
to check the door seal for proper and uniform contact with the cabinet.
5. Formation of droplets
on the underside of the
Chiller tray.
– Hot and humid
climate.
In hot and humid weather the moist air rushes inside whenever the refrigerator door
is opened. This results in excess frosting on the Evaporator, and condensation on
the Chiller tray bottom. Avoid too frequent door openings.
6. Smell and odour.
– Improper covering
and wrapping of food.
Wrap and cover foodstuffs properly. Place caps on bottles and other liquid stores.
If the smell persists, defrost the refrigerator, remove all foodstuffs, clean the
refrigerator thoroughly and wipe it dry before restarting.
7. Difficulty in formation
of ice and ice-cream.
– Incorrect thermostat
setting.
– Defrosting overdue.
Set the thermostat on 'Colder' (No.7) position.
Excessive frost on the freezer, should be defrosted. Ensure that the container of
ice-cream or ice is in proper contact with the surface of the freezer. Do not use
bowls.
