Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
Precaution
Pull out the power plug prior to cleaning the fridgefreezer.
Never damage, serverely bend, pull out, or twist the
power cord because power cord damage may cause a
fire or electronic shock. Never place glass products in the
freezer because they may be broken when their inner
contents are frozen.
Do not modify or
extend the Power
Cord length
It will cause electric shock or fire.
Don't Use an
Extension Cord
If possible, connect the fridge-freezer to its own individual
electrical outlet to prevent it and other appliances or household
lights from causing an overload.
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.
Danger
Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old
refrigerator or freezer: Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside.
Don't store
Don't store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
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.

Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
w Warning
wKeep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure
or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
wDo not use mechanical devices or other means to
accelerate the defrosting process, other than those
recommended by the manufacturer.
wDo not damage the refrigerant circuit.
wDo not use electrical appliances inside the food
storage compartments of the appliance, unless they
are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.
wThe 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.
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
1m2 in size for every 8g 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.

Operation
Function
Super Freezer

quick freeze operation, press the ‘SUPER FRZ’ button
once more, the lamp goes out, and the Super Freeze
operation stops and the refrigerator returns to the
previous temperature setting.

Suggestions on food storage
Storing Food
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
Storing Food
• 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.
• 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 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.
• To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store
food near the temperature control dial.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this may
stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they
may break when frozen.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
Note
If you keep the fridge-freezer 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.
13
Care and Maintenance
General Information
• 1~2 hour power failure does no harm to the foods
stores. Try to avoid opening and closing the door too
frequently.
Power Failure
• Take out foods from the fridge-freezer and firmly fix
the loose items with tape.
• Turn the leveling screws until they stop before moving
the fridge-freezer. Otherwise the screw may scratch
the floor or the fridge-freezer cannot move.
