LATEST IN TECHNOLOGY.
WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT YOU WILL BE FULLY SATISFIED WITH IT'S PERFORMANCE
AND RELIABILITY.
BEFORE YOU START YOUR REFRIGERATOR, PLEASE READ THIS BOOKLET CAREFULLY.
IT PROVIDES EXACT INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND
MAINTENANCE, AND ALSO SUPPLIES SOME USEFUL HINTS.
INSTALLATION
1. Select a good location.
Place your refrigerator where it is easy to use.
5. Clean your refrigerator thoroughly and wipe off
all dust accumulated during shipping.
2. Avoid placing the unit near heat sources, direct
sunlight or moisture.
6. Install accessories such as ice tray, shelf, etc.,
in their proper places.They are packed together
to prevent possible damage during shipment.
3. To ensure proper air circulation around the
fridge-freezer, please maintain sufficient space
on both the sides as well as top and maintain
at least 2 inches (5 cm) from the rear wall.
7. Connect the power supply cord (or plug) to the
outlet. Don't double up with other appliances on
the same outlet.
8. Prior to use, leave your refrigerator on for 2 or 3
hours.
Check the flow of cold air on the evaporator to
ensure proper cooling.
Your refrigerator is now ready for use.
4. To avoid vibrations, the unit must be level.
If required, adjust the leveling screw to
compensate for unevenness of the floor.
The front should be slightly higher than the rear
to aid in door closing.
Leveling screw can be turned easily by tipping
the cabinet slightly.
Turn the leveling screw clockwise to raise the
unit, counterclockwise to lower it.

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, wrap food in vinyl, or place in a covered container. 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.
●
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
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.
INTERIOR - Regular cleaning of the interior and
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.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse
abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on
any surface.
WARNING
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.
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.
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, turn them all
the way into the base.
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.

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 or assembly 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.
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
NEVER STORE EXPLOSIVES AND CHEMICALS
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
