This will improve the performance of the
appliance and save electricity consumption.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the
evaporator of the refrigerator compartment
every time the motor compressor stops, during
normal use. The defrost water drains out
through a trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, over the motor
compressor, where it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost
water drain hole in the middle of the refrigerator
compartment channel to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food inside.
Periodic cleaning
Caution! Do not pull, move or
damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the appliance.
