stabilize at normal operating temperature prior to filling it
with fresh food.
Your refrigerator has a control that let you regulate the
temperature in the refrigerator.
If operation is interrupted, allow a 5 minute delay before
restarting.
Initially, set the control at mid-position.
For colder temperatures, adjust the control to a higher
number, and for warmer temperatures, adjust the control to a
lower number.

OPERATION
ICE MAKING
DEFROSTING
• To make ice cubes, fill the ice tray with water and place it
on the evaporator.
• It is necessary to regularly defrost your refrigerator in
order to ensure efficient operation.
The frost on the surface of the evaporator should not
exceed a quarter of an inch(6mm) before defrosting.
• To remove ice cubes, hold the tray at its ends and twist
gently.
• To defrost, turn the control to '0'.
TIP
To remove ice cubes easily, run water on
the tray before twisting.
• Before you start the defrosting operation, remove food
from the evaporator and place the drip tray in its proper
position.
• When defrosting is completed, remove the drip tray,
empty water, dry and put it back to its normal position.
Turn the control dial to a desired position.
CAUTION: Never use any sharp or metallic instruments
to remove ice, frost or ice tray from the
evaporator.
SUGGESTIONS ON FOOD STORAGE
6
STORING FOOD
• Store fresh food in the refrigerator. How food is frozen
and thawed is an important factor in maintaining its
freshness and flavor.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets
warm air enter the refrigerator, causing temperatures to
rise.
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperatures, such as bananas, pineapples, and melons.
• Do not store bottles on the evaporator - they may break
when frozen.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot food
in the refrigerator could spoil other food, and lead to
higher electric bills!
• Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and
fruits should be washed and wiped, and packed food
should be wiped clean, to prevent adjacent food from
spoiling.
• When storing, wrap food in vinyl, or place in a covered
container. This prevents moisture from evaporating, and
helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
7
CLEANING
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent
undesirable odors. Spilled food should be wiped up
immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces
if allowed to settle.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive
cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on any surface.
INTERIOR - Regular cleaning of the interior and interior
parts is recommended. Disconnect the power supply, and
remove food and shelves, trays etc. Wash all compartment
and shelves, trays etc. with a baking soda solution. Rinse
and dry.
WARNING
Before you clean, however, remember that damp objects
will stick or adhere to extremely cold surfaces. Do not touch
frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands.
EXTERIOR - Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or
detergent to clean the durable finish of your refrigerator.
Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and then dry.
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to
cleaning in the vicinity of electrical parts. Wipe up
excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water
or liquid from getting into any electrical part and causing
a electric shock. Do not use flammable or toxic cleaning
liquids.
GENERAL INFORMATION
8
VACATION TIME
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator in operation. When you plan to be away
for an extended period, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave the door OPEN to
prevent odor formation.
POWER FAILURE
Most power failures are corrected in an hour or two and will not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should
minimize the number of door openings while the power is off. During power failures of longer duration, place a block of dry
ice on top of your frozen packages.
IF YOU MOVE
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the leveling screw, turn them all the way into the base.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
If possible, connect the refrigerator to its own individual electrical outlet to prevent it and other appliances or household lights
from causing an overload that could cause a power outage.
ACCESSIBILITY OF SUPPLY PLUG
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned that the supply plug is accessible for quick disconnection when accident
happens.
POWER CORD REPLACEMENT
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord or assembly available from the manufacturer or its service
agent.
ABOUT GROUNDING(EARTHING)
In the event of an electric short circuit, grounding(earthing) reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for
the electric current.
In order to prevent possible electric shock, this appliance must be grounded.
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in an electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service person if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you have doubts on whether the appliance is properly grounded.
VERY DANGEROUS ATTRACTION
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous attraction to
children. Remove either gasket, latche, lid or the entire
door from your unused appliance,or take some other
action to make it harmless.
CAUTION
This appliance must be grounded(earthed).
DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
