STEP 2 Flooring
• The surface to install the refrigerator
must support a fully loaded refrigerator,
or approximately 100 kg.
• To protect the floor, put a large piece
of cardboard on each leg of the
refrigerator.
• Once the refrigerator is in its final
position, do not move it unless
necessary to protect the floor. If you
have to, use a thick paper or cloth such
as old carpets along the movement
path.
Installation
STEP 3 Adjust the levelling feet
Level the refrigerator by manually
adjusting the levelling feet. Turn the
levelling feet clockwise to lower the
position, or turn counter clockwise to raise.
For safety reasons, adjust the front side a
little higher than the rear side.

Troubleshooting
If you encounter an abnormal situation with the refrigerator, first check the table below
and try the suggestions.
Symptom
Action
Troubleshooting
Does not operate or
cool.
• Make sure the power cord is connected properly.
• Make sure the temperature control is set correctly.
• Make sure to keep the refrigerator away from direct sunlight
or a heat source. Failing to do so may affect the cooling
performance.
• Make sure the refrigerator has enough room from the rear
and side walls or the cabinet. Failing to do so may affect the
cooling performance.
• Too much food may block the ventilation of the refrigerator.
To keep the refrigerator in normal operation, do not put too
much food inside.
Food in the fridge
freezes.
• Check if the temperature control is set to the lowest
temperature. If so, change the temperature to higher or
optimal.
• This happens if the ambient temperature is too low. Set the
temperature higher.
• Check if food containing a high portion of water is put in the
coldest area of the fridge or near the cooling vent. If this
happens, move the food to other shelves in the fridge.
Emits noises.
• Make sure the refrigerator is installed on a stable, flat
surface.
• Make sure the refrigerator has enough room from the rear
and side walls or the cabinet.
• Make sure to keep the refrigerator from impurities or foreign
objects inside or underneath.
• The refrigerator may produce a ticking sound from inside,
which occurs when the various removable parts contract or
expand. This is not a system failure.
The front corners
and sides become
warm and form
condensation.
• To prevent condensation from forming, the refrigerator
has heat-proof piping in the front corners. If the ambient
temperature rises, this equipment may not work effectively.
This is not a system failure.
• Condensation may form on the exterior surface of the
refrigerator if humid air comes into contact with the cool
surface of the refrigerator.

refrigerator on a regular basis and remove any spoiled or
suspect food items.
• Make sure strong smelling food is wrapped up airtight.
Frost forms on the
interior walls.
• Make sure no food blocks the vents of the refrigerator. It is
also important to arrange food items evenly for ventilation.
• Make sure the door is closed properly.
Condensation forms
on the interior walls
or around vegetables.
• This happens when food containing a high portion of water is
stored uncovered, or the door has been left open for a while.
