INSTALLATION
1. Place your chest freezer at a convenient location.
5.Before use, remove all the packing material. The
back side of the cabinet should be more than
20cm away from the wall, both flank sides more
than 20cm.
2. Avoid placing the near any heat sources, direct
sunlight or moisture.
3. Clean your chest freezer thoroughly and wipe off
all dust accumulated during transportation.
6.The chest freezer should be put in well-ventilated,
dry place. Don’t use it under direct sunshine. The
chest freezer should be kept away from water sink,
heat source and any volatile,corrosive material.
4. Connect the power supply cord to the outlet.
Don't plug other appliances to the same outlet.
POWER SOURCE AND TEST RUNNING
1.Specified capacity of the wire is 6A. Section squares of the wire is 0.75mm. Single line or compound lines
are all allowed.The fuse of 2.5A specified electric current should be installed. (Power cord should be
replaced with the same of 6A and 0.75mm,when it is damaged).
2.Single-phase power supply,50Hz,voltage range187~242V.If the voltage is unstable, please install a voltage
stabilizer with capacity above1000W.
3.Avoid turning on and off the power too frequently. If the power is turned off,wait an interval of 5 minutes
before turning it on again.
4.When the chest freezer will be out of use for along time,disconnect the power first,then clean it. Please
examine the circuit whether it is excellent before reuse.

OPERATIONS
STARTING
When your chest freezer is first installed, leave it for 2 or 3 hours for stabilization to normal operating
temperature before filling it with food.
Delay 5 minutes before restarting if operation has been interrupted.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Power
Run
Initially, set the chest freezer control at mid position.
If you wish a colder temperature,set the desired
compartment control to a higher number.
The knob should be kept upright normally to adjust
the temperature.
Power: when the light is on, the power is on.
Run: when the light is on, the compressor is working normally.
“0” stop the compressor.
“7” is the strongest cooling position and is suitable for
fast freezing. Do not keep the knob at this point for
long.
ADVICE ON FOOD STORAGE
1. Never store hot food in the chest freezer. Always wait until cooled off.
2. When storing, cover food with vinyl wrap or store in acontainer with lid. When moisture in the food
evaporates, taste and nutrition of the food disappear as well.
3. Never place bottles in the freezer compartment.They may break while freezing.
4. Never refreeze food that has been thawed after being frozen. This would cause the taste and nutrition
to disappear.
5. Clean food before yous tore it, so that adjacent food will not be spoiled.
6. There must be space between the foods stored in the cabinet, between the foods and the inner
surface of the cabinet, so as to keep good ventilation of cold air and freeze evenly. Do not put in any
bottled or canned beverage with freezing point above the temperature in the cabinet when it is below
zero.
7. For foods that should be moisture-free or lose water easily, wrap them up with hermetical food bags or
fresh films before putting in the cabinet for the sake of avoiding smell-mixing and reducing frosting.
8. Storage of volatile and combustible gases, liquids such as strong alkalies, strong acids, petrol, etc. is
forbidden.

CARE AND CLEANING
Cleaning-Inside
● To
clean the inside,use a soft cloth dampered with solution of at ablespoon of baking soda to a
quarter of water, or some mild detergent.
● This
solution both cleans and neutralizes odors. Rinse with water and wipe dry.
Follow the same procedure to clean the interior parts.
Cleaning-Outside
● Use
a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your chest freezer.
Wipe with a clean, dampened cloth, then dry.
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts. Wipe up excess moisture witha sponge or cloth to prevent water or
liquid from getting into any electrical part and causing a electric shock. Do not
use flammable or toxic cleaning liquids.
MAINTENANCE
1.The chest freezer should be cleaned regularly.When cleaning, turn off the power, take out the foods in the
cabinet, clean the inside using water or a little neutral detergent.
2.Do not use boiling water, acid, chemical diluents,petrol and oil,or dirt-removing powder.
3.Dry it after cleaning.
4.Use light soap water when cleaning the door seal, apply a little of talcum powder on it after natural
drying to extend its service life.
5.Use soft cloth with water or a little detergent to clean the out surface. Note, keeping the power supply
and lower part of connect wires away from water to avoid electricity leakage.
6.Except common breakdowns,those who are not service technician should not take apart and repair
the chest freezer on their own so as to avoid worsening the trouble. Unauthorized repair of electrical
part such as compressor,temperature controller is forbidden.
7.Defrost for better freezing efficiency when the frost film in the cabinet is 4-5mm thick.
8.When defrosting, turn off the power, take out the frozen foods, open the door for warming and melting
Use soft cloth to absorb water and clean it up.
9.Do not use sharp metal tools such as steel brush to clean the frost film when defrosting so as to avoid
evaporator damage.

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
It is often possible to avoid a service call. Before calling for service,make the following checks.
1. Has a house fuse blown or a circuit breaker tripped on?
2. Has the power cord plug been removed or loosened from the wall outlet?
3. Is the temperature control set to aproper position?
4. Is the appliance placed too closed to a wall or a heat source?
5. Has the door been kept open more than necessary?
6. Is the chest freezer installed on a firm and even place?
7. In case of odor, food with strong odor should be tightly covered or wrapped, and interior may need
cleaning.
THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT FAULTS:
1. When the chest freezer is working or after is stops for a while,the refrigerant in the pipes is cycling
and gives out “running water” sounds.
2.The surface temperature of the compressor may be up 70℃~80℃ when it is working.
3.The back side of step freezer gives out heat.
4. In rainy season,the outer surface of the cabinet may have dew,which makes no defects on normal
use. Just dry it with a piece of cloth.
