● Place more ice cubes in the refrigerator compartment.
● Do not place anymore food in the refrigerator.
● Do not open the door more than necessary.
Note
● Power failure leads to the rising of the freezing compartment's temperature,this may shorten
the storage of foods and decline the quality.
● If the power supply is off for too long,be sure to get rid of any water or ice underside the
drawer of the freezing compartment before reconnection of the power supply, so as to avoid
the foods and the ice freezing together.

HOW TO USE
Defrost
As the refrigerator operates, the moisture from foods
or in the air may be frosted on to the inner part of the
refrigerator and the surface of evaporator. Too thick
frost will affect the operation of the refrigerator, so
regularly defrosting is necessary. Usually, defrosting
is necessary when the thickness reaches 5 mm.
Drain pipe
●Refrigerator compartment
Defrosts automatically, moisture on the inner side runs
into the drip tray through the drain pipe. The heat generated by compressor evaporates the water automatically.
Note:
- keep the drain pipe straight so that water can inpour
into the drip tray. When it's blocked,take out the drain
cover,clean it and then replace it.
Freezing compartment
Before defrosting—turn the thermostat knob to "0",open the door,take out foods and drawers in
the freezing compartment,foods may be put into refrigerator compartment temporarily.
Defrosting—remove the frost on the inner side of the freezing compartment and on the surface
of the evaporator with the ice scraper,then wipe off the water with a dry cloth.
After defrost—turn the thermostat knob to the former position.
Ice scraper
Ice making
● Fill the ice tray with water to 4/5 of its
capacity and place it into the freezing
compartment,turn the thermostat knob
to "6".
● Twist the both sides of the ice tray so
as to remove the ice cubes easily.
