Please ensure that the packing material is disposed in accordance with the current environmental
As old refrigerator equipments may contain CFC’s, which will damage the ozone layer, when disposing of any
refrigerator equipment please contact your local waste disposal department for advice on safe disposal.
This appliance must be only used for its intended purpose.
When selecting a location for your unit, please make sure the floor is flat and firm. The space should be well
ventilated. Avoid locating unit near a heat source, e.g. cooker, boiler or radiator. Also avoid direct sunlight as
it may increase electrical consumption.
Keep a clearance of at least 4 inches around the unit.
Before plugging in your freezer for the first time, remove all packing material and clean the freezer with a
lukewarm water and baking soda solution. Wipe dry with soft cloth.
Temperature Control
The freezer temperature is controlled by the thermostat control knob located inside the freezer. Turn the
knob up or down to regulate the temperature inside the freezer. The markings on the control knob are:
MIN, NOR, MAX and OFF: MIN being the warmest setting and MAX being the coldest setting. It is
recommended to set at the NOR position for normal use.
Storing Frozen Food
When using the freezer for the first time or after defrosting, turn the temperature control to MAX for at least
two hours before introducing the food to be stored.
All frozen food products you purchase should be placed in the freezer as soon as possible to avoid the frozen
food from defrosting. Storage recommendation printed on the packaging of frozen food by the
manufacturers should always be followed.
Freezing Fresh Food
Ensure that your freezing operations are carried out under the most hygienic conditions as freezing alone
does not sterilize the food. It is advisable to freeze the food by packing it into separate meal portions and not
in bulk form. Never put hot or even warm foodstuffs into the freezer. Prior to storage, pack food in plastic
bags, aluminum sheets or freezing containers. See the data sheet at the end of this booklet for the maximum
permissible amount of fresh food that can be frozen in any 24 hour period with a room temperature of 77°F.
Never freeze more than the maximum permissible.
Turn the control dial to OFF position and unplug from power source. Open the door and remove all contents
to a cool place. Defrost using a plastic scraper or let the temperature rise naturally until the frost melts. Then
wipe away remaining ice and water.
Plug unit back in and reset thermostat control dial.
Cleaning your freezer
Turn the control dial to OFF position and unplug before cleaning. Wipe with cloth soaked in lukewarm water
and baking soda solution. Then wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Plug unit back in and reset the thermostat control dial.
