ICE MAKING
● To
make ice cubes, fill the ice tray with water and place
it on the evaporator.
● To remove ice cubes, hold the tray at its ends and twist
gently.
TIP
To remove ice cubes easily, run water on the
tray before twisting.

OPERATION
DEFROSTING
● It
is necessary to regularly defrost your refrigerator in order to ensure efficient operation.
The frost on the surface of the evaporator should not exceed a quarter of an inch(6mm) before
defrosting.
● To
defrost, turn the control to '0'.
● Before
you start the defrosting operation, remove food from the evaporator and place the drip tray in its
proper position.
● When
defrosting is completed, remove the drip tray, empty water, dry and put it back to its normal position.
Turn the control dial to a desired position.
CAUTION: Never use any sharp or metallic instruments to remove ice, frost or ice tray
from the evaporator.
SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
STORING FOOD
● Store
fresh food in the refrigerator. 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, cover food 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 open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, causing
temperatures to rise.
● Do
not store bottles on the evaporator - they may break when frozen.
● Do
not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrition.
● 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.

CLEANING
INTERIOR - Regular cleaning of the interior and
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to
prevent undesirable odors. Spilled food should be
wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and
stain plastic surfaces if allowed to settle.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse
abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on
any surface.
Before you clean, however, remember that damp
objects will stick or adhere to extremely cold
surfaces. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or
damp hands.
interior parts is recommended. Disconnect the
power supply, and remove food and shelves, trays
etc. Wash all compartment and shelves, trays etc.
with a baking soda solution. Rinse and dry.
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall
outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts. Wipe up excess moisture with
a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid
from getting into any electrical part and
causing a electric shock. Do not use
flammable or toxic cleaning liquids.
EXTERIOR - Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap
or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and
then dry.
For products with a stainless steel exterior, use a
clean sponge or soft cloth and a mildDetergent in
warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
Dry thoroughly with a Soft cloth.
Do not use appliance wax, bleach, or other products
containing chlorine on stainless steel.
GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
During average length vacations, you will probably
find it best to leave the refrigerator in operation.
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.
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items
inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the leveling screw(s), turn them
all the way into the base.
POWER FAILURE
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may
sometimes get warm, especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which
pumps hot refrigerant to prevent "sweating" on the
outer cabinet wall.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
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.

LAMP REPLACEMENT(Option)
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove refrigerator shelves.
3. Remove the lamp by turning it counterclockwise.
4. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly.
Replacement bulb must be the same
specification as original.
IMPORTANT WARNINGS
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
If possible, connect the refrigerator to its own individual electrical outlet to prevent it and other appliances
or household lights from causing an overload that could cause a power outage.
POWER CORD REPLACEMENT
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord available from the manufacturer or its
service agent.
ABOUT GROUNDING (EARTHING)
In the event of an electric short circuit, grounding (earthing) reduces the risk of electric shock by providing
an escape wire for the electric current.
In order to prevent possible electric shock, this appliance must be grounded.
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in an electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service
person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you have doubts on whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
This appliance must be grounded (earthed).
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove either gasket,
latche, lid or the entire door from your unused
appliance,or take some other action to make it
harmless.
Do not store explosive substances such as
aerosol cans with a flammable propellant in
this appliance.
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
Do not store inflammable materials, explosives
or chemicals in the refrigerator.
CAUTION
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

REPOSITIONING THE DOOR HINGE(Option)
8. Unscrew the Upper Hinge pin (G) and screw it into the opposite side hole in the top of the cabinet.
9. Now secure the Lower Hinge (D) to the cabinet using the 2xBolts (B).
10. Replace the Adjustable Foot (A), setting it at approximately 20mm.
11. Carefully stand the appliance up, (you will need assistance to do this), and position it in its permanent
location.
12. Check that the door opens and closes easily. Ensure that the door seal does not bind on the hinge side
creating gaps which would allow air into the interior. Adjust the hinges if necessary.
This appliance should be stood on a firm, level floor with sufficient space for free airflow around it. (At least
10mm all round and, subject to location, 20mm beneath the worksurface). Avoid positions close to walls or
corners. There must be sufficient room for free ventilation particularly at the back. The unit should be
located away from direct heat sources, such as cookers, radiators and direct sunlight. If the unit is
positioned where the temperature is too low, condensation will form on the outside of the cabinet. Normal
room temperature is recommended.
Avoid locations which may be affected by draughts or dampness as this will impair the efficiency of the
product
NOTE
Reversing the doors is not covered by the warranty.
