To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons when using your product, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the
following. Read all instructions before using this
appliance.
1. When connecting the power
A dedicated outlet should be used.
• Using several devices at one outlet
may cause fire.
• If ELCB (Earth leakage circuit breaker) is
tripped, food inside fridge will spoil and
ice will melt and drip out of the ice
dispenser shute.
Do not allow the power plug to face upward or to
be squeezed at the back of the fridge-freezer.
Water may flow into the socket and
cause fire and electric shock.
Do not allow the power cord to be bent or crushed by
the refrigerator or any other heavy object.
This can damage the power cord and
cause fire and electric shock.
Do not extend or modify the length of the power
plug.
This can cause electric shock or fire due
to non electrical compliance.

Operation
Function
Super Freezer

quick freeze operation, press the ‘SUPER FRZ.’ button
once more, the lamp goes out, and the Super Freeze
operation stops and the refrigerator returns to the
previous temperature setting.
Vacation
• This function makes the fridge-freezer work in a power
saving mode which is useful for when you are away on
holiday, by reducing energy consumption as much as
possible.
Pressing ‘VACATION’ starts operation with lamp on
and pressing it again stops the operation.
19
Operation
Lock
• Pressing this button stops operation of other buttons.
• ”Locking” or “Un-Locking” is repeated whenever
pressing the ‘CHILD LOCK’ button. (For “Locking” or
“Un-Locking” press the ‘CHILD LOCK’ button for 2 secs.)

Suggestions on food storage
Storing Food
Storing Food
• 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 fridge-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 fridge-freezer temperature even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door
lets warm air enter the fridge-freezer, and cause
temperature to rise.
• To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store
food near the temperature control dial.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this may
stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not store bottles or cans in the freezer compartment
- they may break when frozen.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
Note
If you keep the fridge-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 dust free cloth.
21
Care and Maintenance
General Information
Power Failure
• 1~2 hour power failure does no harm to the stored
foods. Try to avoid opening and closing the door too
frequently.
If You Move
• Take out foods from the fridge-freezer and firmly fix
the loose items with tape.
• Turn the leveling screws until they stop before moving
the fridge-freezer. Otherwise the screw may scratch
the floor or the fridge-freezer cannot move.
Anti
Condensation
Pipe
• The Anti-Condensation
Anti-Condensation
Pipe
pipe is installed around the
front side of fridge-freezer
as well as on the partition
between fridge
compartment and freezer
compartment to prevent
dew, or sweating.
• Especially after installation
or when ambient
temperature is high, the fridge-freezer may feel hot,
which is quite normal.
Lamp Replacement

original.
22
Care and Maintenance
Cleaning
