Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
Carry the fridge-freezer with the handle bar
at the bottom of the front and the top of the
rear.
Otherwise, your hands may be
slipped to cause injury. Because
the product is heavy, carrying it
alone may hurt people or
accidents may occur.
Accessibility of Supply Plug
The supply plug of the refrigerator-freezer should
be placed in easy accessible position for quick
disconnection in emergency.
Supply Cord Replacement
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.
Because opening or closing the
door of the fridge-freezer
may cause injury to the
person around it, be careful,
please.
Opening or closing the door
may cause feet or hands to be
caught in the chink in door or the
child to be get hurt by the corner.
DANGER
Risk of child entrapment.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or

Leave the shelves in place so that children may
not easily climb inside.
Don't store
Do not put any living animal in
the fridge-freezer.
• Don't store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
• Don’t store explosive substances such as
aerosol cans with a flammable propellant
in this appliance.
Precaution
Grounding (Earthing)
w WARNING
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.
• This fridge-freezer must be properly installed
and located in accordance with the
Installation Instruction before it is used.
• Never unplug your fridge-freezer by pulling
on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and
pull straight out from the outlet.
• After your fridge-freezer is in operation, do
not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment, particularly when hands are
damp or wet. Skin may adhere to these
extremely cold surfaces.

Important Safety Instruction
w WARNING
w CAUTION
• If the wall socket is loose, do not insert the
power plug.
It may cause electric shock or fire.
w Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance
enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of
obstruction.
w Do not use mechanical devices or other
means to accelerate the defrosting process,
other than those recommended by the
manufacturer.
w Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
w Do not use electrical appliances inside the
food storage compartments of the appliance,
unless they are of the type recommended by
the manufacturer.
w The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas
used in the appliance require special disposal
procedures. When disposal, please consult
with service agent or a similarly qualified
person.
• Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on
the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and
pull it straight out from the outlet.
You may disconnect a wire and cause a short
circuit.
• Do not use a wet or damp cloth when
cleaning the plug. Remove any foreign
matter from the power plug pins.
Otherwise, there is a risk of fire.
• After unplugging the appliance, wait for at
least five minutes before plugging it again
to the wall socket.
Abnormal operation of the freezer may cause
material damage.
• If the appliance is not to be used for a long
time, pull out the power plug.
Any deterioration in the insulation may cause
fire.
This appliance contains a small amount of
isobutane refrigerant (R600a), natural gas
with high environmental compatibility, but it
is also combustible. When transporting and
installing the appliance, care should be taken
to ensure that no parts of the refrigerating
circuit are damaged. Refrigerant squirting out
of the pipes could ignite or cause an eye
injury. If a leak is detected, avoid any naked
flames or potential sources of ignition and air
the room in which the appliance is standing
for several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas
air mixture if a leak in the refrigerating circuit
occurs, the size of the room in which the appliance
may be sited depends on the amount of refrigerant
used. The room must be 1 m2 in size for every 8 g
of R600a refrigerant inside the appliance. The
amount of refrigerant in your particular appliance
is shown on the identification plate inside the
appliance.
Never start up an appliance showing any signs of
damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
• Do not let children touch or play with the
control panel on the front of the appliance.
• The refrigerant used in fridge/freezer and
the gases in the insulation material require
special disposal procedures. Ensure that none
of the pipes on the back of the appliances
are damaged prior to disposal.
w WARNING
Please do not use a dishwasher to clean the lower
drawers; the high temperature may cause damage
to the baskets which make them unusable.

Suggestions on food storage
w CAUTION
Suggestion for energy saving
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
• Please do not keep the door open for a long
time, close door in the shortest time.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing
hot food in the fridge-freezer could spoil other
food, and lead to higher electric bills.
• Too much food are not advised to be put in.
Enough space should be kept for cool air
circulating freely.
• When storing the food, use a container with a
lid. This prevents moisture from evaporating, and
helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
• Do not set the temperature of fridge-freezer
lower than needed. Do not put the food near the
temperature sensor. Keep the distance of at least
5mm from the sensors.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing
hot food in the fridge-freezer could spoil other
food, and lead to higher electric bills.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth
circulation of cold air keeps fridge-freezer
temperature even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the
door lets warm air enter the fridge-freezer, and
cause temperature to rise.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth
circulation of cold air keeps fridge-freezer
temperature even.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this
may stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the
door lets warm air enter the fridge-freezer, and
cause temperature to rise.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer compartmentthey may break when frozen.
• To Keep a position of inner parts like as baskets,
drawers (Fridge), shelves and wire shelves
