THIS REFRIGERATOR IS MANUFACTURED WITH GREAT CARE, AND INCORPORATES
THE LATEST IN TECHNOLOGY.
WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT YOU WILL BE FULLY SATISFIED WITH ITS PERFORMANCE
AND RELIABILITY.
BEFORE USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR, PLEASE READ THIS BOOKLET CAREFULLY.
IT PROVIDES EXACT INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION, OPERATION, AND
MAINTENANCE, AND ALSO SUPPLIES SOME USEFUL HINTS.
INSTALLATION
SELECT A GOOD LOCATION
NEXT
1. Place your refrigerator where it is easy to use.
1. Wipe off all dust accumulated during shipping
and clean your refrigerator thoroughly.
2. Avoid placing the refrigerator near heat sources,
direct sunlight, or moisture.
2. Install accessories such as ice tray, shelf, etc.,
in their proper places.They are packed together
to prevent possible damage during shipping.
3. Air must circulate properly around your
refrigerator to ensure efficient operation.
If your refrigerator is placed in a recessed area
in the wall, allow at least a 10 inch (25 cm) or
greater clearance above the refrigerator and 2
inches (5 cm) or more from the wall.
The refrigerator should be elevated 1 inch
(2.5 cm) from the floor, especially if it is
carpeted.
3. Connect the power supply cord (or plug) to the
outlet. Don't double up with other appliances
on the same outlet.
4. Prior to use, let the refrigerator run for 2-3
hours.
Check the flow of cold air on the evaporator to
ensure proper cooling has taken place.
Your refrigerator is now ready for use.
4. To avoid vibrations, the refrigerator must be
level.
If necessary, adjust the leveling screw(s) to
compensate for unevenness of the floor.
To make closing the door easily, the front
should be slightly higher than the rear.
The leveling screw(s) can be turned easily by
tipping the cabinet slightly.
Turn the leveling screw(s) clockwise to raise the
refrigerator, counterclockwise to lower it.

OPERATIONS
STARTING
When your refrigerator is first installed, allow it 2-3 hours to stabilize at normal operating temperature
before filling it with fresh food.
If operation is interrupted, wait 5 minutes before restarting.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Your refrigerator has a control that let you regulate
the temperature in the refrigerator.

For colder temperature, adjust the control to a higher
number, and for warmer temperature, adjust the
control to a lower number.

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 put in the drip tray fully
until it stops.
●
When defrosting is completed, remove the drip tray, empty water, dry and put it back fully until it stops.
Turn the control dial to a desired position.
CAUTION: Never use any sharp or metallic instruments to remove ice, frost, or ice trays
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
interior parts is recommended. Disconnect the
power supply, and remove food and shelves, trays,
etc. Wash all compartments and shelves, trays etc.
with a baking soda solution. Rinse and dry.
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.
THE 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 the 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(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 anticondensation pipe, which pumps hot refrigerant to
prevent sweating on the outer cabinet wall.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
Most power failures are corrected within 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
The appliance is not intended for use by young
children or infirm persons without supervision.
Young children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
ABOUT GROUNDING (EARTHING)
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.
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.
POWER CORD REPLACEMENT
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.
In order to prevent possible electric shock, this
appliance must be grounded.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by a special cord available from the manufacturer
or its service agent.
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
This appliance must be grounded (earthed.)
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove the gasket, latch,
lid, or the entire door from your unused
appliance, or take some other action to make it
harmless.
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
Do not store inflammable materials, explosives,
or chemicals in the refrigerator.
