Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.

When moving your appliance away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

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.

Pull out the power plug prior to cleaning the fridgefreezer.

Never damage, severely 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.

Installation

Location

This appliance is suitable for using at ambient temperature between +16°C and +38°C. If the ambient temperature drops below +16°C, it is possible that the freezing foods in the freezer compartment are thawed because the temperature of the freezer gets warm.

We recommend that the refrigerator be installed at a dry and well ventilated place. Make sure that the appliance is not exposed to direct sunlight or placed in vicinity of a heat source such as stove, heaters, radiator.

If it is impossible, To ensure proper air circulation around the fridge-freezer, please maintain sufficient space on both the sides as well as top and maintain at least 2 inches (5 cm) from the rear wall.

NOTE

Place on a flat and firm flooring. If the floor is not even, adjust the feet by using the leveling screw at the front edge of the cabinet.

If the front is slightly higher than the rear, the door can close more easily.

Suggestion on food storage

NOTE

Storing food

Opening the door often or keeping the door opened a long time, increases the inside temperature. This causes the storage life and flavor of the foods to reduce, and increases the energy consumption.

Do not touch deep-frozen foods with wet hands.

You could get chilblains on your hands.

Make sure foods that are not frozen do not touch the frozen foods. The frozen foods may melt.

The packing materials suitable for refrigerating the foods are

- Polyethylene bags, Plastic foil, freezing containers.

The suitable wrapping materials are

- Rubber band, Plastic clips, attaching tape, string.

Before sealing, get rid of air from packing bags and foil.

The remained air makes the storing foods dry.

You can freeze foods quickly when packing is level. Do not store bottles in freezer compartment. They may break when frozen.

Tips

Making Ice

To make ice cubes, fill ice tray 3/4 full with water and place it on the bottom of the freezer compartment.

To remove ice cubes, hold the ice tray at its ends and twist gently.

To remove ice cubes easily, run water on the tray before twisting.

Care and Maintenance

Defrosting

Defrosting the fridge compartment

When the freezer is working, frost is formed at the rear wall of the fridge compartment and melts automatically when the compressor stops.

Defrosting the freezer compartment

Humidity forms frost or ice in the freezer compartment while the appliance is working or when the freezer door is opened. The thick ice and frost decrease cool air and increase the energy consumption.

Defrost Ice Layer

If the freezer compartment is heavily iced, defrost as follows.

- Remove the frozen food, wrap in newspaper and store in a cool place.

- Leave the door open, and wipe out water with a sponge.

- Dry the freezer compartment thoroughly, turn on the appliance, and replace frozen foods.

Tips

It is helpful to place a saucepan with hot water inside of the freezing room in order to assist defrost.

NOTE

Never place electrical devices in the refrigerator for defrost.

Take care when using defrosting sprays for assisting defrosting. These sprays include substances containing explosive gas, or harmful for synthesis or human health.

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning

Always remove plugs or Switch off supply before cleaning.

Do not use sharp objects (such as knife, screwdriver) which could break refrigerant circuit resulting in environmental and health risks.

Never use steam cleaner or steam pressure cleaner since hot steam may damage refrigerator surface and electrical devices. Never use sand, abrasive detergent, acid or chemical solvent.

• The freezer compartment should be cleaned at least once a month.

• The most appropriate time for cleaning of the freezer compartment is a time after defrosting.

• Clean refrigerator including inside devices with clothes or lukewarm water. You may use commercial detergent for tableware.

• Frequently clean the water drain inlet on the inside rear side of refrigerator. Clean the drain inlet using objects like a toothpick so that the drain inlet is not clogged.

Care should be taken so that cleaning water does not overflows in the drain tub.

Regularly clean the heat exchanger on the rear side of refrigerator using a smooth brush so that accumulations of dusts and residues. Do not disrupt expansion from the inside and cause increased energy consumption.

Any damage to the heat exchanger or other events leading to the exposure of the refrigerant to the environment, should be avoided because of potential environment and health risks.

Going away

Power failure

If you move

Anti-condensation pipe

Care and Maintenance

General information

When you plan to be away for an extended period, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave the door OPEN to prevent odor formation.

Most power failures are corrected in an hour or two and will not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is OFF. During power failures of longer duration, place a block of dry ice on top of your frozen packages.

Remove all items inside the refrigerator or securely fasten all loose items. To avoid damaging the leveling screw, turn them all the way into the base.

• The Anti-condensation pipe is installed around the front side of fridge-freezer to prevent dewing.

• Especially after installation or when ambient temperature is high, the fridge-freezer may feel hot, which is quite normal.

Care and Maintenance

Tips for saving Energy

- After moving the appliance, allow 2 hours to turn on again.

- Do not place the appliance near radiator, stove, and heat sources. If ambient temperature is high, the compressor will run longer.

- Place the appliance on a cool and well ventilated room. Do not expose to direct sunlight.

- Do not keep the door opened too long.

- Do not place warm food and beverages in appliance. Please cool down first otherwise the steam from hot foodstuffs would contribute to the icing up of the evaporator unit; and the cooling period should be as short as possible, for health and hygiene reasons.

- Do not set the temperature of appliance lower than needed.

- Place the deep-frozen foods for thawing into the fridge.

They can be used for cooling the fridge.

- Replace magnetic door gasket of the door if it is not properly functioning.

To Reverse the Doors

Precaution

How to Reverse the Door

Your refrigerator is designed with a reversible door, so you may open from either left or right. It is best to reposition the door hinge as necessary at the outset since it is inconvenient to do so later.

To change the door hinge please refer to the diagram below and proceed as follows.

1. First unplug the appliance.

2. Remove foods and accessories like shelves or trays which are not fixed in the refrigerator.

3. Carefully lay the appliance on a cushion like packing material to avoid the damage of refrigeration circuit.

4. Use ‘+’ driver or spanner to fix or remove the bolts.

1. Unscrew the 2xBOLTS , then remove the hinge (L) .

2. Remove the LEG .

3. Gently pull the door downwards to remove it.

4. Before refitting the door, swap the Hinge Cap by pulling it out from its current location and repositioning it on the other side of the door. Care should be taken not to damage the adjacent surfaces when removing the Hinge Cap.

5. Unscrew the Upper Hinge pin (U) and screw it into the opposite side hole.
