Risk of child entrapment.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:
Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside.
Don't store
Don't store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors
and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
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.
Important Safety Instruction
Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure
or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
Do not use mechanical devices or other means to
accelerate the defrosting process, other than those
recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food
storage compartments of the appliance, unless they
are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.
The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas used in the
appliance require special disposal procedures. When
disposal, please consult with service agent or a
similarly qualified person.
This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane
refrigerant (R600a), natural gas with high
environmental compatibility, 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.
Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes could ignite or
cause an eye injury. If a leak is detected, avoid any
naked flames or potential sources of ignition and air
the room in which the appliance is standing for
several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas air
mixture if a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the size
of the room in which the appliance may be sited depends
on the amount of refrigerant used. The room must be
1m 2 in size for every 8g of R600a refrigerant inside the
appliance. The amount of refrigerant in your particular
appliance is shown on the identification plate inside the
Never start up an appliance showing any signs of
damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
Important Safety Instruction
• If the wall socket is loose, do not insert the power
It may cause electric shock or fire.
• Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull it
straight out from the outlet.
You may disconnect a wire and cause a short circuit.
• Do not use a wet or damp cloth when cleaning the
plug. Remove any foreign matter from the power
plug pins.
Otherwise, there is a risk of fire.
• Do not put your hands into the bottom area of the
Any Sharp edges may cause personal injury..
• After unplugging the appliance, wait for at least
five minutes before plugging it again to the wall
Abnormal operation of the freezer may cause material
• If the appliance is not to be used for a long time,
pull out the power plug.
Any deterioration in the insulation may cause fire.
• Do not let children touch or play with the control
panel on the front of the appliance.
• The refrigerant used in fridge/freezer and the
gases in the insulation material require special
disposal procedures. Ensure that none of the pipes
on the back of the appliances are damaged prior
to disposal.

1. Select a good location.
Place your fridge-freezer where it is easy to use.
2. Avoid placing the unit near heat sources,
direct sunlight or moisture.
3. There must be proper air circulation around your
fridge-freezer to keep it operating efficiently.
4. To avoid vibration, the unit must be leveled.
If required, adjust the leveling screws to compensate
for the uneven floor.
The front should be slightly higher than the rear to aid
in door closing.
Leveling screws can be turned easily by tipping the
cabinet slightly.
Turn the leveling screws counterclockwise(
) to
raise the unit, clockwise(
) to lower it.
5. Clean your fridge-freezer thoroughly and wipe off all
dust accumulated during shipping.
6. Install accessories such as ice cube box, etc., in their
proper places.They are packed together to prevent
possible damage during shipment.
7. Connect the power supply cord (or plug) to the outlet.
Don't double up with other appliances on the same
8. To ensure proper air circulation around the fridge freezer, please maintain sufficient space on both the
sides as well as top and maintain at least 2 inches (5
cm) from the rear wall.
When your fridge-freezer is installed, allow it 2-3 hours to
stabilize at normal operating temperature prior to filling
it with fresh or frozen foods.
If power plug is disconnected, allow 5 minutes delay
before restarting.
Your fridge-freezer is now ready for use.
Temperature Control
Your fridge-freezer has two controls that let you regulate
the temperature in the fridge and freezer compartments.
• Initially set the TEMP. CONTROL at
"4". Then adjust the compartment
temperature according to your
• If you want an inside temperature
slightly less cold or colder, turn the
knob towards WARM or COLD,
respectively. When the surrounding
temperature is low, adjust the TEMP. CONTROL 'WARM'.
Display Panel For Temperature Control
• Freezer temperature control is on the top of the fridgefreezer. You can now adjust the temperature of the
compartment as you want.
• When you press the ‘FRZ. TEMP.’ button, the temperature
of freezer compartment is repeated in the following
-18°C → -19°C → -20°C → -21°C → -22°C → -23°C
→ -15°C → -16°C → -17°C → -18°C
The actual inner temperature varies depending on the
food status, as the indicated setting temperature is a
target temperature, not actual temperature within
Refrigeration function is weak in the initial time.
Please adjust temperature as above after using
refrigerator for minimum 2~3 days.
Super Freezer
• This function is used when you want to freeze the foods
quickly. Press the 'SUPER FRZ./VACATION’ , and then

display light on.
The super freeze operation takes about 3 hours. When
its operation ends, it automatically returns to the normal
state. If you want to stop the super freeze operation,
press the 'SUPER FRZ./VACATION' button, the display light
goes out, the super freeze operation stops and the
refrigerator returns to the normal state.
• This function makes the fridge-freezer work in a power
saving mode which is useful for when you are away on
holiday, by reducing energy consumption as much as

Self Test
• This function automatically detects failure when failure
is found in product during the use of refrigerator.
• If the failure occurs at product and it does not operate
by pressing any button and normal indication is not
done, do not turn the power off and immediately
contact with the local service center.
• A lot of time is needed for service engineer to detect
the failed part by turning it off.
Ice Making
• To make ice cubes, fill the ice
tray to the water level and place
it in the freezer.
• If ice cubes are required fast,
set the ‘SUPER FRZ.’ state.
• To remove ice cubes, hold the
tray at its ends and twist gently.
To remove ice cubes easily, run water on the tray
before twisting.
Defrosting takes place automatically.
The defrosting water flows down to the evaporating tray
and is evaporated automatically.
Suggestions on food storage
Storing Food
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
Storing Food
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot
food in the fridge-freezer could spoil other food, and
lead to higher electric bills.
• When storing the food, use a container with a lid. This
prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food to
keep its taste and nutrients.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of
cold air keeps fridge-freezer temperature even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door
lets warm air enter the fridge-freezer, and cause
temperature to rise.
• To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store
food near the temperature control dial.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this may
stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they
may break when frozen.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
If you keep the fridge-freezer in a hot, and humid
place, frequently open its door or put a lot of
vegetables in it, dew may form in it, which has no
effect on its performance.
Remove the dew with dust cloth free from care.
