•
•
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot
food in the freezer could spoil other food, and lead to
higher electric bills.
When storing the food, use 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
cold air keeps freezer temperature even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door
lets warm air enter the freezer, and cause the
temperature to rise.
Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this may
stop the door from fully closing.
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment,
Miracle Zone or snack bin they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
Do not store pharmaceutical products, scientific
materials or other temperature sensitive products in the
freezer.
Products that require strict temperature controls must
not be stored in the freezer.
If you want to quick freeze new food, you put it middle
drawer of freezer compartment, and then press the
Super Freezer button.
Do not put in front of the air hole of the upper drawer
of freezer compartment. It could decrease freezer
capacity.
If you keep the freezer in a hot, and humid place, frequently
open its door or put a lot of vegetables in it, dew may form
in it, which has no effect on its performance. Remove the
dew with a lint free cloth.
