SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
STORING FOOD
●
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and defrosted is an important
factor in maintaining 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 high 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 nutritional valve.
●
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, causing
temperatures to rise.
●
To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store food near the temperature control dial.
FREEZER COMPARTMENT
●
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
●
Do not refreeze food that has been defrosted. This causes loss of taste and nutritional valve.
●
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.
●
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.
●
Door rack - Loading the food on the whole area of door rack would cause no problems in performance.
NOTE
●
If you keep the refrigerator 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 dust cloth free from care.
14

GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
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.
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items
inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the leveling screws, turn them all
the way into the base.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
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.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS
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.
ACCESSIBILITY OF SUPPLY PLUG
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.
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned
that the supply plug is accessible for quick
disconnection when accident happens.
SUPPLY CORD REPLACEMENT
DO NOT MODIFY OR EXTEND THE
POWER CORD LENGTH
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by 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).
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove gaskets, latches,
lids 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
