4. OPERATION
4.1 Adjusting the Temperature
◆The temperature selector knob is located on the right hand side wall of the refrigerator
interior Setting“Off”
:
Unit Off
:Less Cool Temperature
Setting“Min”
Setting“Med”
:Normal Operation(adequate for most situations)
Setting“Max”
:Coolest Temperature
◆During high ambient temperatures e.g. on hot summer days. It may be necessary to set the
thermostat to the Coolest setting(position “Max”).This may cause the compressor running
continuously in order to maintain a low temperature in the cabinet.
◆For the first time you install your refrigerator, set the thermostat knob at “Med”.
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is the best to wait
24 hours before adding food. The thermostat knob controls the temperature. When the
thermostat control knob is set to OFF, the refrigerator will not be running.
4.2 Noise Inside the Unit!
You may notice that your unit makes some unusual noises. Most of these are perfectly normal,
but you should be aware of them!
These noises are caused by the circulation of the refrigerant liquid in the cooling system. It has
become more pronounced since the introduction of CFC free gases. This is not a fault and will not
affect the performance of your unit. This is the compressor motor working, as it pumps the
5
refrigerant around the system.
4.3 Tips for Keeping Food in the Unit
◆ Cooked meats/fishes should always be stored on a shelf above raw meats/fishes to avoid
bacterial transfer. Keep raw meats/fishes in a container which is large enough to collect juices
and cover it properly. Place the container on the lowest shelf.
◆ Leave space around your food, to allow air to circulate inside the unit. Ensure all parts of the
unit are kept cool.
◆ To prevent transfer of flavours and drying out, pack or cover the food separately. Fruit and
vegetables do not need to be wrapped.
◆ Always let pre-cooked food cool down before you put in the unit. This will help to maintain
the internal temperature of the unit.
◆ To prevent cold air escaping from the unit, try to limit the number of times you open the
door. We recommend that you only open the door when you need to put food in or take food
out.
5. CLEANING
5.1 Defrosting
Defrost the freezing compartment whenever the layer of frost on the surface of the evaporator
reaches 3 or 4mm. When defrosting remove all food and set the thermostst to oFF position.
Put the drip tray under the evaporator to collect melte water. After the frost has
melted,discard the water and dry up the interior of refrigerator. The refrigerator can then be
restarted by turning its thermostst to the desired setting.
5.2 Cleaning the Interior and the Exterior of the Unit
◆ Remove all the shelves and the salad bin. To remove the salad bin first remove the lower
door shelf.
◆ Wipe the inside of the unit with a weak solution of bicarbonate soda and then rinse with
warm water using a damp sponge or cloth. Wipe completely dry before replacing the
shelves and salad bin.
◆ The grille of the condenser at the back of the unit and the adjacent components can be
vacuumed using a soft brush attachment.
5.3 Cleaning Tips
Condensation may appear on the outside of the unit. This may be due to a change in
room temperature. Wipe of any moisture residue. If the problem continues, please contact a
qualified technician for assistance.
6. MAINTENANCE
6.1 Care When Handling / Moving Your Unit

department if the issues are not settled.
Inoperation
Odour
Long-term operation of
compressor
Illuminating light does not
shine
The refrigerator door can not
be properly closed.
Loud noises
Whether the freezer is plugged and connected to power;
Low voltage;
Failure power or tripping circuit
Odorous foods should closely wrapped;
Whether foods are rotten;
Whether the interior shall be cleaned.
It is normal that refrigerator operates for longer time in
summer when the ambient temperature is higher;
Do not put too much food in the freezer at one time;
Do not put foods until they are cooled;
Frequent opening of refrigerator door.
Whether the refrigerator is connected to power,
whether the illuminating light is damaged.
The freezer door is stuck by food packages;
Too much food;
Tilt refrigerator.
Whether the food is leveled, whether the refrigerator is
balanced;
Whether the refrigerator parts are properly placed.
7.1 Warm tips:
◆The refrigerator enclosure may emit heat during operation specially in summer, this is caused
by the radiation of the condenser, and it is a normal phenomenon.
◆Condensation: condensation phenomenon will be detected on the exterior surface and door
seals of the freezer when the ambient humidity is large, this is a normal phenomenon, and the
condensation can be wiped away with a dry towel.
◆Buzz: Buzz will be generated by running compressor specially when starting up or shutting
down.
8. TIPS FOR ENERGY SAVING
Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is wet and hot. Once you open
the door, close it as soon as possible.
Every now and then check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate air circulation
behind the appliance).
In normal temperature conditions, please arrange the thermostat at the middle setting.
7
Before loading the appliance with packages of fresh food, make sure they are cooled to ambient
temperature.
Ice and frost layer increase energy consumption, so clean the appliance as soon as the layer is 3-5
mm thick.
If it is the outer condenser, the rear wall should be always clean free of dust or any impurities.
Always consider instructions stated in the "Positioning and Energy Saving Tips"sections,
otherwise the energy consumption might be substantially higher.
◆ The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing
appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
◆ Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance. Overloading the
appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or
spoil.
◆ Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance.
This cuts down on frost build-up inside the appliance.
◆ Appliance storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling.
Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.
◆ Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many
items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
9. DISPOSAL
Old units still have some residual value. An environmentally friendly method of disposal will
ensure that valuable raw materials can be recovered and used again. The refrigerant used in your
