INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using the Refrigerator

Remove the exterior and interior packing.

Before connecting the refrigerator to a power source, let the unit stand upright for approximately 4 hours to mitigate the
possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from improper handling during transportation.
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth. (Refer to the cleaning instruction on page 4)

Installing the Refrigerator








This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
Place the refrigerator on a leveled/even floor surface that is strong enough to support the weight of the refrigerator when it is
fully loaded to prevent vibrations and allow water to properly drain.
The leveling feet should only be used in forward and backward motions and never side to side.
Allow at least 5cm of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator to allow proper air ventilation. Adjust the
two front feet to keep the refrigerator leveled or elevated.
Situate the refrigerator away from direct sunlight and sources of direct heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may
also affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may cause an increase electrical consumption. Ambient temperature below
50°F or above 85°F will hinder the performance of this appliance.
This unit is not designed for outside installation.
Avoid situating the refrigerator in moist OR pest infestation areas.
Plug the refrigerator into dedicated, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the
third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a
certified electrician or an authorized service center.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS





Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator. Overloading the refrigerator forces the
compressor to work harder. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
Do not adjust the temperatures colder than necessary. Refer to page 4 for temperature instructions.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on frost buildup inside the refrigerator.
Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and
close the door as soon as possible.
Refrain from leaving the door/s open for a long time to conserve energy.

Temperature Control
1.The temperature in the refrigerator compartment is controlled by the temperature controller installed on the
side wall of the refrigerator compartment.
2.Turn the thermostat knob to right or left, you can regulate the temperature inside the refrigerator.
3.The marks on the knob are the temperature grades, not the exact number of the degrees of temperature.”0”
shows a forced STOP and “7” shows the lowest temperature. Turn the knob from "1"position to "7"position, the
temperature decreases continuously. You may set the temperature control selector to any position according to
what you need.
4.Please set the selector to "3"position in normal use.
Defrosting
The appliance isn’t frost free model and it need to manual defrost regularly.
When the refrigerator works for a period of time, the inner surface of the freezer room will be covered with a layer of thick ice. It may
increase the power consumption and reduce the cooling efficiency.
When defrosting, cut off the power,open the door and move frozen foods to a shady
cooling place, defrost with a plastic scraper, or let the temperature rise naturally till ice melts.
Then wipe away remaining ice and water.
Notes: Never use sharp metal tools and it might damage the gas pipe which will avoid warranty.
