IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
This freezer contains an environmentally friendly but flammable refrigerant, R600a. There is
the danger of explosion if for any reason the refrigerant is allowed to escape from the system.
The refrigeration system must never be accessed by unauthorized personal. When
transporting and installing the unit, ensure that no part of the tubing system is damaged. If the
tubing is damaged and a leak occurs, avoid any ignition sources and naked flames near the
unit, and ventilate the room immediately. In order to avoid formation of flammable gas/air
mixtures in case of a leak from the refrigeration system, for every ounce of coolant at least
325 cubic feet of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on
the data plate attached to the appliance.
DANGER!





The ventilation openings must never be covered or blocked. Never use a water stream or
pressure cleaning device during cleaning or defrosting in order to avoid short circuits in
the electrical system.
Do not place any electrical devices in the freezer.
Products containing flammable gases and explosives must not be stored in the freezer.
Avoid damaging the refrigerant tubing which would increase the risk of a leak.
DANGER!
Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
appliances are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
Before discarding your old refrigerator:
 Take off the doors
 Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

The appliance should be transported only in a vertical upright position. The packing as supplied
must be intact during transportation.
If during the course of transport the product has been transported horizontally, it must only be laid
on its left hand side (when facing the door front) and it must not be operated for at least 4 hours to
allow the system to settle after the appliance is brought back to upright position.
1. Failure to comply with the above instructions could result in damage occurring to the appliance.
The manufacturer will not be held responsible if these instructions are disregarded.
2. The appliance must be protected against rain, moisture and other atmospheric influences.
IMPORTANT: Care must be taken while cleaning / carrying the appliance to avoid touching the
condenser metal wires at the back of the appliance, as you might injure your fingers and
hands or damage your product.
IMPORTANT: This appliance is not designed for stacking with any other appliance. Do not
attempt to sit or stand on top of your appliance as it is not designed for such use. You could
injure yourself or damage the appliance.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the power cable is not caught under the appliance during and after
carrying / moving the appliance, to avoid the cable becoming cut or damaged.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. If possible, avoid placing the appliance near ovens, radiators or in direct sunlight as this will
cause the compressor to run for long periods. If installed next to a source of heat or
refrigeration, maintain the following minimum side clearances:
From Ovens
From Radiators
From Fridges
4" (100 mm)
12" (300 mm)
4" (100 mm)
2. Make sure that sufficient room is provided around the appliance to ensure free air circulation.
Ideally, a space of no less than 4” (100 mm) must be left around the freezer. Be sure you allow
gaps as shown in the below diagram.
3. The appliance should be located on a smooth surface.
4. Do not use the refrigerator outdoors.
5. Protect from moisture. To avoid the metal parts becoming rusty, do not locate the freezer in a
damp place. And do not spray water onto the freezer, which will weaken the insulation and
cause current leakage.
6. Refer to the "Cleaning and Care" section to prepare your appliance for use.
7. If the freezer is installed in unheated areas, garages etc., in cold weather condensation may
form on the outer surfaces. This is quite normal and is not a fault. Remove the condensation
by wiping with a dry cloth.
4
START-UP
Final Check
Before starting to use the freezer, please check that:
1. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.
2. Clean the interior as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE".
3. Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity; a red light will go on. Avoid
accidental disconnection by taping over the switch. A green light will glow and the
compressor will start running (see “Freezer Operation” on page 6).
4. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within the
refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the compressor is running or not
which is quite normal.
5. Do not load the appliance immediately after it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage
temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an
accurate thermometer (see “Freezer Operation”, page 6).
6. If you are going to store already-frozen food, open the freezer lid and check that the
freezer has reached the correct temperature. Then you can put in your already-frozen food.
(See “Storing Frozen Food” on page 6).
Important Notes:
• If there is a power failure, do not open the lid. Frozen food should not be affected if the
failure lasts for less than 20 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked
and eaten immediately or cooked and then refrozen.
• If you find that the lid of the chest freezer is difficult to open just after you have closed it,
don‟t worry. This is due to the pressure difference which will equalize and allow the lid to be
opened normally after a few minutes.

FREEZER OPERATION
TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT
The temperature of the freezer is adjusted by means of the knob assembled on the thermostat.
”1、2、3、4、5” do not represent specific temperatures. The smaller the number, the higher the
temperature. For example, position “5” represents the lowest temperature setting.
Meanings of markings:
OFF:Forced Shutdown Point
1 – 5:Frozen Interval (from -12°C to -30°C, or 10.4°F to -22°F)
Actual temperatures can vary according to the conditions of use of the appliance, such as: location,
ambient temperature, frequency of lid opening, extent of loading of the freezer. The setting of the
thermostat knob may have to be changed according to these factors. Normally, for an ambient
temperature of approx. 25°C (77°F), the thermostat should be adjusted to the middle position.
We recommended that you check the temperature with a thermometer to ensure that the freezer is
kept at the desired temperature. Remember you must take your reading very quickly since the
thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember each time the lid is opened, cold air escapes and the internal temperature rises.
Therefore never leave the lid open and ensure it is firmly closed immediately after food is put in or
removed.
INDICATOR LIGHTS
The indicator light set is placed on the front of the freezer for easy visibility.
Indicator lights mean the following:
Red light – shows that the appliance is supplied with electricity
Green light – shows that the compressor is working
STORING FROZEN FOOD
Prepackaged commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food
manufacturer‟s instructions for a
freezer compartment.
To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retailer is
maintained, the following should be kept in mind:
1.Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
2.Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best Before” dates on the packaging.
6
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
Place fresh food to be frozen near the side walls to ensure fast freezing and away from already
frozen food, if possible.
Never exceed this maximum capacity. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time.
The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the centre as quickly as
possible.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.
DEFROSTING
Defrost twice a year or when a frost layer of around 7 mm (1/4”) has formed.
Alternatively you may switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the power plug.
Extract the water conduit and put in a water container.
6 hours before the defrosting, please set the thermostat knob at “MAX” position to make sure the
food is at the lowest temperature when you take it out. All food should be wrapped in several
layers of newspaper and stored in a cool place (e.g. fridge or larder).
Remove the freezer basket. Leave the lid open. Containers of warm water may be placed carefully
in the freezer to speed up the defrosting.
Never use hairdryers, electrical heaters or other such electrical appliances for defrosting. When
defrosting is finished, allow the defrost water that collects at the bottom of the freezer to flow out
as shown in the diagram below, then dry the interior thoroughly. Switch on the Fast Freeze and
leave it on for about three hours.
1. A drain outlet is designed at the bottom of the freezer liner, and when defrosting, remove its
rubber cover. (You can find the rubber cover in the freezer accessory bag. Be sure to install it.)
The defrost water flows out and is discharged from the drain pipe. (NOTE: PLEASE KEEP
THE RUBBER COVER IN A SAFE PLACE DURING THE DEFROSTING AND PUT IT BACK
WHEN DEFROSTING IS DONE.)
2. Pull out the water conduit about an inch until the water hole can be seen.
3. Twist the water conduit until the arrow points downward.
4. After defrosting, make sure no more water is coming out. Then push in the water conduit and
turn until the arrow points upward.
Important Notes:
• Do not use pointed or sharp-edged objects such as knives or forks to remove the frost.
• Never use hairdryers, electrical heaters or other such electrical appliances for defrosting.

CLEANING AND CARE
1. Switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the power plug before cleaning.
2. Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent or wax polish
for cleaning.
3. Use lukewarm water to clean the cabinet of the freezer and wipe it dry.
4. Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one pint of
water to clean the interior and wipe it dry.
5. Excess deposit of ice should be removed on a regular basis using a plastic ice scraper
available from your local store. A large accumulation of ice will impair the performance of the
freezer.
6. If the freezer is not going to be used for a long period of time, switch it off, remove all food,
clean it and leave the lid ajar.
7. Check lid seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particles.
Important Notes:
Never use water to wash the area of the compressor. Wipe it with a dry cloth thoroughly after
cleaning to prevent rust.
