temperature drops below +16°C, it is possible that the
freezing foods in the freezer compartment are thawed
because the temperature of the freezer gets warm.
We recommend that the refrigerator be installed at a dry
and well ventilated place. Make sure that the appliance is
not exposed to direct sunlight or placed in vicinity of a
heat source such as stove, heaters, radiator.
To ensure proper air circulation around the fridgefreezer, please maintain sufficient space on both the
sides as well As top and maintain at least 2 inches (5 cm)
from the rear wall.

Suggestions on food storage
Storing food
Opening the door often or keeping the door opened a
long time, increases the inside temperature. This causes
the storage life and flavor of the foods to reduce, and
increases the energy consumption.
Note
Do not touch deep-frozen foods with wet hands.
You could get chilblains on your hands.
Make sure foods that are not frozen do not touch the
frozen foods. The frozen foods may melt.
The packing materials suitable for refrigerating the foods
are
- Polyethylene bags, Plastic foil, freezing containers.
The suitable wrapping materials are
- Rubber band, Plastic clips, attaching tape, string. Before
sealing, get rid of air from packing bags and foil.The
remained air makes the storing foods dry.
You can freeze foods quickly when packing is level. Do
not store bottles in freezer compartment. They may
break when frozen.
Making Ice
To make ice cubes, fill ice tray 3/4
full with water and place it on
the bottom of the freezer
compartment.
To remove ice cubes, hold the ice tray at its ends and
twist gently.
s
Tip
To remove ice cubes easily, run water on the tray
before twisting.

Care and Maintenance
Defrosting
Defrosting the fridge compartment
When the freezer is working, frost is formed at the rear
wall of the fridge compartment and melts automatically
when the compressor stops.
Defrosting the freezer compartment
Humidity forms frost or ice in the freezer compartment
while the appliance is working or when the freezer door
is opened. The thick ice and frost decrease cool air and
increase the energy consumption.
Defrost Ice Layer
If the freezer compartment is heavily iced, defrost as
follows.
- Remove the frozen food, wrap in newspaper and store
in a cool place.
- Leave the door open, and wipe out water with a
sponge.
- Dry the freezer compartment thoroughly, turn on the
appliance, and replace frozen foods.
s
Tip
It is helpful to place a saucepan with hot water inside
of the freezing room in order to assist defrost.
Note
Never place electrical devices in the refrigerator
for defrost. Take care when using defrosting sprays
for assisting defrosting. These sprays include
substances containing explosive gas, or harmful for
synthesis or human health.
11
Care and Maintenance
Cleaning
Always remove plugs or Switch off supply before
cleaning.
Do not use sharp objects (such as knife, screwdriver)
which could break refrigerant circuit resulting in
environmental and health risks.
Never use steam cleaner or steam pressure cleaner since
hot steam may damage refrigerator surface and electrical
devices. Never use sand, abrasive detergent, acid or
chemical solvent.
• The freezer compartment should be cleaned at least
once a month.
• The most appropriate time for cleaning of the freezer
compartment is a time after defrosting.
• Clean refrigerator including inside devices with clothes
or lukewarm water. You may use commercial
detergent for tableware.
• Frequently clean the water drain inlet on the inside rear
side of refrigerator. Clean the drain inlet using objects
like a toothpick so that the drain inlet is not clogged.
Care should be taken so that cleaning water does not
overflows in the drain tub.
Regularly clean the heat exchanger on the rear side of
refrigerator using a smooth brush so that accumulations
of dusts and residues. Do not disrupt expansion from the
inside and cause increased energy consumption.
Any damage to the heat exchanger or other events
leading to the exposure of the refrigerant to the
environment, should be avoided because of
potential environment and health risks.

Care and Maintenance
General Information
When you plan to be away for an extended period,
remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and leave the door OPEN to prevent
odor formation.
Going away
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 all items inside the refrigerator or securely fasten
all loose items. To avoid damaging the leveling screw,
turn them all the way into the base.
Anti-condensation
pipe

Tips for saving Energy
- After moving the appliance, allow 2 hours to turn
on again.
- Do not place the appliance near radiator, stove, and
heat sources. If ambient temperature is high, the
compressor will run longer.
- Place the appliance on a cool and well ventilated
room. Do not expose to direct sunlight.
- Do not keep the door opened too long.
- Do not place warm food and beverages in
appliance. Please cool down first otherwise the
steam from hot foodstuffs would contribute to the
icing up of the evaporator unit; and the cooling
period should be as short as possible, for health and
hygiene reasons.
- Do not set the temperature of appliance lower than
needed.
- Place the deep-frozen foods for thawing into the
fridge.
They can be used for cooling the fridge.
