12
Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
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.
13
Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
w Warning
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.
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.
14
Introduction
Important Safety Instruction
• If the wall socket is loose, do not insert the power
plug.
It may cause electric shock or fire.
w Caution
• 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.
• 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.

Suggestions on food storage
Storing Food
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
w Caution
• 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.
• 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.
• Do not store pharmaceutical products, scientific
materials or other temperature sensitive products in the
refrigerator.
Products that require strict temperature controls must
not be stored in the refrigerator.
29
Suggestions on food storage
• If you want to quick freeze new food, you put it middle
drawer of freezer compartment, and then press the
EXPRESS FRZ. button.
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.
30
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.
If You Move
• The Anti-Condensation pipe
is installed around the front
side of fridge-freezer as well
as on the partition between
fridge compartment and
freezer compartment to
prevent dewing.
Anti Condensation
Pipe
