Return the freezer temp. control dial to the original position after usage. 10 Applicable For GL-432 DMX Operation Ice making Water Level Your refrigerator has Triple twist ice tray l to make ice cubes, fill the ice tray with water upto the water level mark and insert in its position. l to remove ice cubes, hold the knob of the tray and turn gently in the clock wise direction, ice cubes drop in the bank ice. Ice Trays Bank Ice Instruction to use bank ice Use bank ice only to store ice cubes. Do not make ice in it, as it may break. Ice beam Door cooling l l Chiller Compartment Cool air vent is placed on the refrigerator door to provide cool air to door shelves. If foreign substances enters the cool air vent while cleaning, efficiency will be lowered. In addition, if gasket is damaged, efficiency may be lowered due to the escape of cool air. So care should be taken during cleaning. When the door is opened, the warmer air doesn’t influence the cooling of chiller compartment. So you can keep food fresher in it. Defrosting l l Deodorizer l l How to Use l l l 11 Defrosting takes place automatically in every 8 hours of actual compressor running. The defrost water flows down to the evaporating tray which is located in the lower back side of the refrigerator and is evaporated automatically. By using a catalyst, deodorizing performance is guaranteed. Unpleasant odor of food in fresh food compartment is deodorized with no harm to you and the food. As the catalyst is located in cooling air outlet in fresh food compartment, there is no need for any handling. Do not prick the cooling air outlet with a sharp tip because the deodorizer catalyst may be damaged. When storing food with a strong odor, wrap it or store it in a container with lid because odor may be passed to other food. Cool air Vent Operation F.I.R. Lamp (Optional) Feature l l Operating l l Far infrared rays emitted Far Infrared Ray lamp restrains the dryness of the food and keeps moisture without deteriorating nutrition value. By increasing the nucleic acid, Far Infrared Rays also keeps the smell and taste of the food for long time. When the refrigerator begins to operate, F.I.R. lamp turns on. During the refrigerator’s operating, the on and off of the F.I.R. lamp is atomically controlled by the refrigerator inner temperature. Therefore it is not necessary to handle F.I.R. lamp. If you store the food wrapped in the vinyl or wrapper, not in the vessel with lid, the food will get more effective F.I.R. results. Lamp Replacement Refrigerator Lamp Caution Freezer Lamp 12 l Unplug the power cord from the outlet. l Remove refrigerator shelves. l To remove the lamp cover, insert a slotted driver at the one of the under hole of the lamp cover and pull it out forward. l Turn the lamp counterclockwise. l Assemble the reverse order of disassembly.

Lamp operation, do not touch the F.I.R. lamp, because you may burn your fingers with the high temperature of its surface. l Unplug the power cord from the outlet. l To remove the lamp cover, reach behind the lamp cover and pull it forward as shown in Flg. l Turn the lamp counterclockwise. l Assemble the reverse order of disassembly. Replacement bulb must be the same specifications as original. Suggestion on Food storage Location of Food (Refer to page 4 for Identification of Parts) Ice cubes will drop in the ice bank. Ice bank Freezer compartment shelf Store various frozen food such as meat, fish, frozen snacks, etc. Utility box Store meat, fish, chicken, ice cream, etc. Tray fresh room Store small food such as bread, snacks, etc. Freezer compartment door basket Store small packaged frozen food. Temperature is likely to increase as door opens. So, do not store long-term food such as ice cream. Egg Storage basket Place this egg box in the proper location. Refrigerator compartment shelf Store side dishes or other food at a proper distance from each other for effective cooling. Refrigerator compartment door basket Store water bottles, small packaged food or beverages such as milk, juice, beer, etc.. Tray Vegetable Store vegetables or fruits. 13 Suggestion on Food storage Storing Food Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. Do not store food which becomes unusable easily at low temperatures, such as bananas, and melons. Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil other food, and lead to higher energy consumption. 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. Please keep food at a distance of at least 15 mm from the air vents. Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and cause temperatures to rise. Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator temperatures even. To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store food near the temperature control dial. Freezer compartment Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment, they may break when frozen. Refrigerator compartment Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from 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, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling. When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer. When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer shelf or in utility box, not in the door basket. NOTE • If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, and frequently open the door or put a lot of vegetables in it, moisture may form in it which has no effect on its performance. Just wipe the moisture with a clean cloth. 14 Care and Maintanance General Information Vacation time During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator in operation with Refrigerator Temp. Control at “Cold” position. Place freezable items in freezer for longer storage. When you plan not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave each door“OPEN” to prevent odor formation. Power failure Power failures for an hour or two 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 height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base. 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 air to the refrigerator to prevent“sweating” on the outer cabinet wall. 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 left uncleaned. 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 is recommended. Wash all compartments with a baking soda solution or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry. After cleaning Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power outlet is not overheated, or power plug is inserted well into the power outlet. 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 an electric shock. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick or adhere to extremely cold surfaces. 15 General Instructions Before Calling for Service SERVICE CALLS CAN OFTEN BE AVOIDED !
