Before using the appliance for the first
time, you should be informed of the
following tips.
Ventilation of appliance
In order to improve efficiency
of the cooling system and save
energy, it is necessary to maintain
good ventilation around the appliance
for the dissipation of heat. For this
reason, sufficient clear space should
be available around the refrigerator.
Suggest :It is advisable for there to be
at least 50-70mm of space from the
back to the wall, at least 100mm from
its
top,at last 100mm from its side to the
wall and a clear space in front to allow
the doors to open 145°. As shown in
following diagrams.
● Stand your appliance in a dry place to
avoid high moisture.
● Keep the appliance out of direct
sunlight, rain or frost. Stand the
appliance away from heat sources
such as stoves, fires or heaters.
Leveling of appliance
● For
sufficient leveling and air
circulating in the lower rear section of
the appliance, the bottom feet may
need to be adjusted.
●To allow the doors to self-close, tilt
the top backwards by about 10mm.

Note:
This appliance performs well within
the climate class showed in the table
below. It may not work properly if being
left at a temperature above or below
the indicated range for a long period.

Water filters are not included on your
new appliance, to help promote better
health, you may need to purchase
a water purifying system to do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate
properly, a water pressure should be
required.
-the maximum inlet water pressure
is 862kPa;
-the minimum inlet water pressure
is 207kPa.
The water connection must be made by
a qualified plumber. Operation outside
the water pressure range may cause
malfunction, severe and damaging
water leaks.
Under normal conditions, a 200cc
(5.75 oz.) cup can be fill in about
10 seconds.
If the refrigerator is installed in
an area with low water pressure
(blow 30 psi),you can install a booster
pump to compensate for the low pressure.
1.First ,shut off the main water supply.
2.Using the power drill and a 1/4’’ drill
bit drill into the cold water line and
connect the saddle-type shutoff valve.
3.Connect 1/4’’ extension tubing to shutoff
valve outlet.
4.Flush the tubing .Turn the main water
supply on and flush out the tubing until
the water is clear.Then , shut the water off
at the water valve after about quart of water
has been flushed through the tubing.
1. Power drill and 1/4’’ drill bit.
2. 1/2’’ or adjustable wrench.
3. Flat blade and Philips head screwdrivers.
4.You may find these items sold as a kit
at local hardware store.
5. These items are provided with your fridge.
Please check your fridge drawer to find them.
5.Connect the extension tubing line with
the line on the back of the fridge via the
coupler .Fully insert the extension tubing
into the coupler, and then insert the clip
onto the coupler to lock up the tubing.
Do the same with the other end. After both
clips are inserted ,check the line to make
sure it is held firmly by the clip.
10
Ensure that water line does not get
pinched or bent when installing. This can
result in improper water flow through the
line and will affect the functionality of
the fridge.
6.Turn the water on and check for leakage.
Use only the new tubings supplied with the
refrigerator. Old tubing should not be used.
After connected to the water supply line,
please open the water value to flush the
filter for 5 minutes before use.
The initial dark discoloration of water is
normal.
It is normal that there will be a sound that
exhaust comes out from the appliance when
you connect the water line to the appliance
and press the lever of the dispenser for
the first time.
The water line must be connected to the
cold water pipe. If it is connected to the
hot water pipe, it may cause the purifier
to malfunction.
Avoid contamination of pipes during
installation.

combination for the drawers, crisper
and shelves, do not adjust the
combination as this is designed to be
the most energy efficient configuration.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
● Do not place hot food directly into the
refrigerator or freezer, the internal
temperature will increase resulting in
the compressor having to work harder
and will consume more energy.
● Do cover or wrap the food,
particularly if it has a strong flavor.
● Place food properly so that air can
circulate freely around it.
Hints for refrigeration
● Meat (All Types) Wrap polyethylene
food: wrap and place on the glass shelf
