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.
• 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.
• 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.
15
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.
• 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.
• 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.
• For more space, you can remove bottle rack,
egg tray, ice tray and fresh converter drawer.
16
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 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.

MAINTENANCE
EN
Notes for Cleaning
• When removing a shelf or drawer from inside
the appliance, remove all stored foods from
the shelf or drawer to prevent injury or
damage to the appliance.
− Otherwise, injury may occur due to the
weight of stored foods.
• If cleaning the outside air vents of the
appliance by means of vacuuming, then the
power cord should be unplugged from the
outlet to avoid any static discharge that can
damage the electronics or cause an electric
shock.
• Detach the shelves and drawers and clean
them with water, and then dry them
sufficiently, before replacing them.
• Regularly wipe the door gaskets with a wet
soft towel.
• Door basket spills and stains should be
cleaned as they can compromise storage
ability of the basket and could even be
damaged.
• After cleaning, check if the power cable is
damaged, warm or improperly plugged.
• Keep the air vents on the exterior of the
appliance clean.
− Blocked air vents can cause fire or
appliance damage.
• Waxing external painted metal surfaces helps
provide rust protection. Do not wax plastic
parts. Wax painted metal surfaces at least
twice a year using appliance wax (or auto
paste wax). Apply wax with a clean, soft cloth.
• For the appliance exterior, use a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in
warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh
cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
• Clean regularly surfaces that can come in
contact with food and accessible drainage
systems.
• If the appliance is equipped with an LED
lamp, do not remove lamp cover and LED
lamp in any attempt to repair or service it.
