SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
• 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.
10
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

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.
If You Move

as on the partition between
fridge compartment and
freezer compartment to
prevent dewing.
