IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of explosion, fire, death, electric shock,
injury or scalding to persons when using this product,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
Technical Safety
•This
•
appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised
to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
•If
• the power cord is damaged or the hole of the outlet socket is
loose, do not use the power cord and contact an authorized
service centre.
3
EN
•Do
• not damage the refrigerant circuit.
•Do
• not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the
defrosting process.
•Keep
•
ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the
built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
•Do
• not use electrical appliances inside the refrigerator.
•The
•
refrigerant and insulation blowing gas used in the appliance
require special disposal procedures. Consult with service agent or
a similarly qualified person before disposing of them.

•
appliance is intended to be used in household and similar
applications only. It should not be used for commercial, or catering
purposes, or in any mobile application such as a caravan or boat.
•Do
• not store explosive substances such as aerosol cans with a
flammable propellant in this appliance.
This symbol alerts you to flammable materials that
can ignite and cause a fire if you do not take care.
•This
•
appliance contains a small amount of isobutane refrigerant
(R600a), but it is also combustible. When transporting and
installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no
parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
•When
•
positioning the appliance, ensure the supply cord is not
trapped or damaged.
•Do
• not locate multiple portable outlet-sockets or portable power
supplies at the rear of the appliance.

Notes for Operation
Suggestion for Energy Saving
••Users should keep in mind that frost can form.
If the door is not closed completely, if the
humidity is high during the summer, or if the
freezer door is opened frequently.
••Ensure there is sufficient space between food
stored on the shelf or door basket to allow the
door to close completely.
••Opening the door for long periods can cause
a significant increase of the temperature in the
compartments of the appliance.
••If the refrigerating appliance is left empty for
long periods, switch off, defrost, clean, dry,
and leave the door open to prevent mould
developing within the appliance.
••Ensure there is sufficient space between
stored foods. This allows cold air to be
circulated evenly and lowers electricity bills.
••Store hot food only after it has cooled in order
to prevent dew or frost.
••When storing food in the freezer compartment,
set the freezer temperature lower than the
temperature indicated on the food.
••Do not put food near the temperature sensor
of the fridge compartment. Keep a distance of
at least 3 cm from the sensor.
••Note that a temperature rise after defrosting
has a permissible range in the appliance
specifications. If you wish to minimise the
impact this may have on the food storage due
to a temperature rise, seal or wrap the stored
food in several layers.
••The automatic defrosting system in the
appliance ensures that the compartment
remains free of ice buildup under normal
operating conditions.
18
EN
Storing Foods Effectively
Max Freezing Capacity
••Store frozen food or refrigerated food inside
sealed containers.
••Check the expiration date and label (storage
instructions) before storing food in the
appliance.
••Do not store food for a long period of time
(more than four weeks) if it spoils easily at a
low temperature.
••Place the refrigerated food or frozen food in
each fridge or freezer compartment
immediately after purchasing.
••Store raw meat and fish in suitable containers
in the refrigerator, so that it is not in contact
with or drip onto other food.
••Avoid refreezing any food which has been
completely thawed. Freezing any food which
has been completely thawed again will lower
its taste and nutrition.
••Do not wrap and store vegetables with
newspaper. Printing material of newspaper or
other foreign substances may smear and
contaminate food.
••Do not overfill the appliance. Cold air can not
circulate properly if the appliance is overfilled.
••If you set an excessively low temperature for
food, it may become frozen. Do not set a
temperature lower than the required
temperature for the food to be stored correctly.
••If there are chill compartments in the
appliance, do not store vegetables and fruits
with higher moisture content in the chill
compartments as they may freeze due to the
lower temperature.
••The Express Freeze function will set the
freezer to its maximum freezing capacity.
••This generally takes up to 24 hours and
automatically switches off.
••If the maximum freezing capacity is to be
used, Express Freeze must be switched on for
seven hours before fresh produce is placed in
the freezer compartment.
Maximum Storage
••To get better air circulation, insert all drawers.
••If large quantities of food are to be stored, all
the freezer drawers shall be taken out of the
appliance except the bottom one and the food
shall be stacked directly on the freezer
shelves in the freezer compartment.
NOTE
••To remove the drawers, first pick the food out
of drawers. Then use the handle of drawers,
pull out the drawers carefully. It may cause
injury.
••The shape of each drawer may be different,
insert in the right position.
