How food is frozen and thawed is important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor. Do not store food which spoils easily at low temperatures, such as an bananas and melons. prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil higher energy consumption. 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 Allow hot food to cool other food, and lead to temperatures even. Do not open the door and cause Never so Freezer frequently. Opening temperatures keep the door lets air enter the refrigerator, they may push against by inner racks too much food in door rack because that the door cannot be fully closed. Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This Compartment When storing warm to rise. frozen food like ice cream for a - they may causes break when frozen. loss of taste and nutrient. long period, place it on the freezer shelf, not in the door rack. Refrigerator Compartment Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from direct contact with chilled air. Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling. When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer. NOTE ? 23 If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause condensation to form which has no effect on its performance. Remove the condensation with dust cloth free from care. Care and Maintenance How to Dismantle Parts NOTE ?
