If water pressure does not reach the rating 147 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm2) or below, it is necessary to purchase a separate pressure pump for normal automatic icing and cool water feed. Keep the total length of the feed water pipe tube within 12 m and be careful for the tube not be bent. If the tube is 12 m or longer it may cause trouble in water feed owing to the drain water pressure. Install the feed water pipe tube at a place free from heat. Connect to potable water supply only.

Place freezable items in freezer for longer life. When you plan not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor formation. Vacation time in Most power failures that Power failure are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off. If you or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator. damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.

Always remove electrical parts power cord from the wall outlet power prior to not cleaning overheated, in the or vicinity of (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 an electric shock. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface. Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick or adhere to extremely cold surfaces. 22 Care and maintenance Trouble shooting Before calling for service, review this list.
