OPERATIONS
CONTROLS FOR FREEZER COMPARTMENT
• COLD AIR CONTROL - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Setting at "8", the
freezer compartment becomes colder. But the refrigerator
compartment becomes warmer because less cold air flows into the
refrigerator compartment.
• In cold weather the unit operates less and the freezer compartment has a tendency to warm up. For
colder freezer, turn the COLD AIR CONTROL to "7"~"8".
• If you take a lot of foods in the freezer or open its door frequently, its temperature is apt to be
somewhat higher. In this case, set the COLD AIR CONTROL dial between 7 and 8 to cool it. Return
the COLD AIR CONTROL dial to the original position to cut down the consumption of energy.
• In hot weather or to put much foods in the refrigerator compartment, the refrigerator
compartment has tendency to warm up.
For colder refrigerator, turn the COLD AIR CONTROL to "2"~"4" to direct more cold air into the
refrigerator compartment, and the REF TEMP CONTROL TO MAX.
Setting at "7"~"8" of the COLD AIR CONTROL, the refrigerator compartment will not be cold enough.
• Setting the Freezer Knob at
will satisfy 4 STAR.
Setting the Freezer Knob at NORMAL will have sufficient freezing effect, so it is recommended to set the
Knob at NORMAL.
Cool air vent
GREEN ION DOOR COOLING
●
The anion coating in the cover multi purifies the air and
helps stored foods remain fresh longer.
●
If water of foreign substances enter the cool air vent while
cleaning, efficiency will be lowered. In addition, if gasket is
damaged, efficiency may be lowered owing to the escape
of cool air.

SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
STORING FOOD
●
●
●
●
●
●
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an important
factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as bananas, pineapples, and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil other food, and
lead to higher electric bills!
When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in 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 chilled air keeps refrigerator temperatures
even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and cause
temperatures to rise.
FREEZER COMPARTMENT
●
●
●
●
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.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer shelf, not in the door
rack.
Loading for Freezing - It is recommended to load newly introduced foods on the following position for
freezing:
Newly Introduced Food
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
●
●
Avoid placing moist food on deep interior refrigerator
shelves, it could freeze upon direct contact with chilled
air. To avoid this it is better to store food in the covered
container.
Refrigerator
Shelf
It is desirable to store moist food (especially vegetable
and fruit) in the vegetable storage compartment. If it is
necessary to store on a shelf of the refrigerator, put it
close to the door away from the back wall of the
refrigerator to avoid being frozen by the cool circulating in the refrigerator.
Vegetable
Drawer
●
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and wiped, and
packed food should be wiped clean, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
●
When storing eggs in their storage rack, ensure that they are fresh, and always store them in a upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.

CLEANING
It is important that you refrigerator be kept clean to
prevent undesirable odors. Spilled food should be
wipe up immediately, since it may acidify and stain
plastic surfaces if allowed to settle.
INTERIOR PARTS - Wash compartment shelves,
door racks, storage trays and magnetic door seals
etc. Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or dish
washable solution to clean the durable finish of
your refrigerator. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth
and then dry.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse
abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on
any surface.
Before you clean, however, remember that damp
objects will stick or adhere to extremely cold
surfaces. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or
damp hands.
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior
to cleaning in the vicinity of electrical parts(lamps,
switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to
prevent water or liquid from getting into any electrical
part and causing electric shock. Do not use
flammable or toxic cleaning liquids.

GENERAL INFORMATION
VACATION TIME
IF YOU MOVE
During average length vacations, you will probably
find it best to leave the refrigerator in operation.
Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan to be away for an extended period,
remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean
the interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN
to prevent odor formation.
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items
inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the leveling screw(s), turn them
all the way into the base.
ANTI-CONDENSATION PIPE
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may
sometimes get warm, especially just after
installation.
Don't be alarmed.
This is due to the anticondensation pipe, which
pumps hot refrigerant to
prevent "sweating" on the
outer cabinet wall.
POWER FAILURE
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.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
ABOUT GROUNDING (EARTHING)
If possible, connect the refrigerator to its own
individual electrical outlet to prevent it and other
appliances or household lights from causing an
overload that could cause a power outage.
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.
ACCESSIBILITY OF SUPPLY PLUG
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.
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned that
the supply plug is accessible for quick disconnection
when accident happens.
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.
DO NOT MODIFY OR EXTEND THE
POWER CORD LENGTH.
It will cause electric shock
or fire.
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
This appliance must be grounded (earthed).
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous
attraction to children. Remove either gaskets,
latches, lids or the entire door from your unused
appliance, or take some other action to make it
harmless.
Do not store inflammable materials, explosives
or chemicals in the refrigerator.
