INSTALLATION OF THE REFRIGERATOR
1. UNPACKING
3. THOUGH AND EVEN FLOOR
Before installing your refrigerator, remove any
tape or temporary stickers. Do not remove any
stickers that feature warnings, the model serial
number or the technical label of the product
located on the back of the refrigerator.
Your refrigerator must be leveled and placed
on a strong floor. An unstable installation
can produce noise and vibrations. If the
floor is uneven, level the unit by twisting
the height adjusting screw, this will eliminate
unwanted sounds and vibrations.
To remove adhesive tape residue, rub it well
with your fingers and a little liquid detergent.
Clean with warm water and let dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing
alcohol, flammable liquids or abrasive
cleaning products to remove the adhesive
tape or glue. These products can damage
the surface of your refrigerator.

FRONT
TURN THE LEVELING
SCREWS TO HEIGHT
4. AMBIENT TEMPERATURE
The shelves come already installed in their
factory position. Remove the shelves and
replace them according to your spacing
needs.
The refrigerator will work efficiently if room
temperature is between 10 °C and 43 °C
(50 °F and 109,4 °F).
5. A PROPER DISTANCE FROM
ADJACENT ITEMS
2. INSTALL IT AWAY FROM HEAT
SOURCES AND HUMID AREAS
Adequate air flow is needed for an efficient
operation. Keep your refrigerator at a relative
distance from other objects. Reduces
distance between the unit and other nearby
objects can diminish freezing capacity and
rise consumption of electrical energy.
In places with high temperatures, freezing
capacity can be affected and cause high
consumption of electrical energy.
Never install in places with high humidity as
this can cause oxidation and electric shock
hazard.

WARNING
Refrain from pulling the lever before ice
cubes have been completely made, as this
can cause water to spill, freeze, and cause
the container to stick to the Icemaker Fig. 5.
If water spills, immediately wipe it off with a
cloth. Avoid heavy ice accumulation in the
container as this can cause problems to
move the lever and/or container.
Make sure the level of water in the shelf is
even on the entire surface, guiding yourself
with pointing arrows on Fig. 2.
Water must not surpass this level as it can
get spilled when opening or closing door.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
1. SHELVES
Holder
The shelves of your refrigerator can be
adjusted to comply with your storage
necessities; depending on the model you
have it can include glass shelves or wired
shelves. Storing your foods together and
adjusting the shelves to different heights
will ease to help you locate what you need.
This also helps your refrigerator to stay shut
longer which will save you energy.
Fig. 10
IMPORTANT: While your refrigerator glass
shelves are cold do not clean with hot or
warm water. The glass shelves may break if
exposed to rapid temperature changes or hard
impacts. For your safety the glass shelves are
made out of tempered glass so when at
breaking they will fracture into tiny fragments.
NOTE: Be careful while moving or relocating
the shelves, they are heavy. If moving the
shelves is required keep in mind to locate
them in a safe environment to prevent them
from breaking.
