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 the food, cover it 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, and cause
temperatures to rise.
FREEZER COMPARTMENT
●
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
●
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of 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.
●
Loading for Freezing - It is recommended to load newly introduced foods on the following position for
freezing:
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
●
Avoid placing moist food on deep interior refrigerator
shelves, it could freeze upon direct contact with chilled
air. To avoid this it is better to store food in the covered
container.
●
It is desirable to store moist food (especially vegetable
and fruit) in the vegetable storage compartment. If it is
necessary to store on a shelf of the refrigerator, put it
close to the door away from the back wall of the
refrigerator to avoid being frozen by the cool circulating in the refrigerator.
●
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, and always store them in a upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.

GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
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.
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may
sometimes get warm, especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the anticondensation pipe, which
pumps hot refrigerant to
prevent "sweating" on the
outer cabinet wall.
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.
Caution
Electrical Shock Hazard
Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, either
unplug the refrigerator or turn off power at the
circuit breaker or fuse box.

the manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly
qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
It will cause electric shock
or fire.
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
This appliance must be grounded (earthed).
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove either gaskets,
latches, lids or the entire door from your unused
appliance, or take some other action to make it
harmless.
Do not store inflammable materials, explosives
or chemicals in the refrigerator.
