ABOUT GROUNDING(EARTHING)
If possible, connect the refrigerator to its own
individual electrical outlet to prevent it and other
appliances or household lights from causing an
overload that could cause a power outage.
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.
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned
that the supply plug is accessible for quick
disconnection when accident happens.
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT
DO NOT MODIFY OR EXTEND THE
POWER CORD LENGTH
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or its service agent or a
similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
It will cause electric
shock or fire.

STARTING
When your refrigerator is first installed, allow it 2-3 hours to stabilize at normal operating temperatures
prior to filling it with fresh or frozen foods.
If operation is interrupted, allow 5 minutes delay before restarting.
BEFORE SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
This refrigerator has one temperature control knob for the refrigerator compartment and one temperature
control dial for the freezer compartment.
The default setting of the temperature control knob for the refrigerator compartment is 'MID'.
The default setting of the temperature control dial for the freezer compartment is '2' or '3'.
CONTROLS FOR REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
MAX
For colder temperatures, adjust the control knob to MAX, and for
warmer temperatures, adjust the control knob to MIN position
MID
MIN
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
CONTROLS FOR FREEZER COMPARTMENT
Determine which type Temperature Control you have.
<A Type>
<B Type>
TEMP. CONTROL - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
Setting at "7", the freezer compartment becomes colder. But the refrigerator compartment becomes
warmer because less cold air flows into the refrigerator compartment.
In cold weather the unit operates less and the freezer compartment has a tendency to warm up.
For colder freezer, turn the TEMP. CONTROL to "6"~"7".
If you take a lot of foods in the freezer or open its door frequently, its temperature is apt to be somewhat
higher. In this case, set the TEMP. CONTROL dial between 6 and 7 to cool it. Return the TEMP. CONTROL
dial to the original position to cut down the consumption of energy.
In hot weather or to put much foods in the refrigerator compartment, the refrigerator compartment
has a tendency to warm up.
For colder refrigerator, turn the TEMP.CONTROL to "2"~"3" to direct more cold air into the refrigerator
compartment.
Setting at "6"~"7" of the TEMP.CONTROL, the refrigerator compartment will not be cold enough.

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.
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.
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.
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
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment shelves,
door racks, storage trays, and magnetic door seals
etc. with the baking soda solution or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
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.
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.
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.
GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
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.
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.
POWER FAILURE
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
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.
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may
sometimes get warm, especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
Anti-Condensation
Pipe
This is due to the
anti-condensation pipe,
which pumps hot refrigerant
to prevent sweating on the
outer cabinet wall.
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.
