You can adjust the humidity inside by using the sliding block. ● The humidity control adjusts the airflow in the crisper; higher airflow results in lower humidity. Slide the humidity control to the right in order to increase humidity. ●High humidity settings are recommended for vegetables, while low humidity is suitable for preservation of fruit. ● Follow these simple instructions to remove the crisper chamber, or freezer drawer, for cleaning. Empty the crisper chamber; pull it out to fully open position. Lift the crisper from the lateral slides. Push the slides fully in to avoid damage when closing the door.

Please refer to Installing your new appliance chapter. ● View 1 under the “Description of the appliance” section shows the correct arrangement 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 in polythene food: wrap and place on the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer. Always follow food storage times and use by dates suggested by manufacturers. ●Cooked food, cold dishes, etc.: They should be covered and may be placed on any shelf. ●Fruit and vegetables: They should be stored in the special drawer provided. ●Butter and cheese: Should be wrapped in airtight foil or plastic film wrap. ●Milk bottles: Should have a lid and be stored in the door racks. Hints for freezing ● When first starting-up or after a period out of use, let the appliance run at least 2 hours on the higher settings before putting food in the compartment. ● Prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly and completely frozen and to make it possible to subsequently thaw only the quantity required. ●Wrap up the food in aluminum foil or polyethylene food wraps which are airtight. ●Do not allow fresh，unfrozen food to touch the food which is already frozen to avoid temperature rise of the latter. ● Iced products，if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer compartment, will probably cause frost burns to the skin. ● It is recommended to label and date each frozen package in order to keep track of the storage time. Hints for the storage of frozen food ● Ensure that frozen food has been stored correctly by the food retailer ● Once defrosted, food will deteriorate rapidly and should not be re-frozen. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer. Switching off your appliance If the appliance needs to be switched off for an extended period, the following steps should be taken to prevent mould on the appliance. 1. Remove all food. 2. Remove the power plug from the mains socket. 3.Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. 4.Ensure that all the doors are wedged open slightly to allow air to circulate. 13 Cleaning and care For hygienic reasons the appliance (including exterior and interior accessories) should be cleaned regularly at least every two months. Caution! The appliance must not be connected to the mains during cleaning. Danger of electrical shock! Before cleaning switch the appliance off and remove the plug from the mains socket. Exterior cleaning To maintain good appearance of your appliance, you should clean it regularly. -Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean, soft cloth. -Spray water onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly on the surface of the appliance. This helps ensure an even distribution of moisture to the surface. -Clean the doors, handles and cabinet surfaces with a mild detergent and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Caution! -Don't use sharp objects as they are likely to scratch the surface. -Don't use Thinner, Car detergent, Clorox, ethereal oil, abrasive cleansers or organic solvent such as Benzene for cleaning. They may damage the surface of the appliance and may cause fire. Interior cleaning ● You should clean the appliance interior regularly. It will be easier to clean when food stocks are low. Wipe the inside of the fridge freezer with a weak solution of bicarbonate of soda, and then rinse with warm water using a wrung-out sponge or cloth. Wipe completely dry before replacing the shelves and baskets. Thoroughly dry all surfaces and removable parts. ● Although this appliance automatically defrosts, a layer of frost may occur on the freezer compartment's interior walls if the freezer door is opened frequently or kept open too long. If the frost is too thick, choose a time when the supply of food stocks are low and proceed as follows: 1.Remove existing food and accessories baskets, unplug the appliance from the mains power and leave the doors open. Ventilate the room thoroughly to accelerate the thawing process. 2.When defrosting is completed, clean your freezer as described above. Caution! Don't use sharp objects to remove frost from the freezer compartment. Only after the interior is completely dry should the appliance be switched back on and plugged back into the mains socket. Door seals cleaning Take care to keep door seals clean. Sticky food and drinks can cause seals to stick to the cabinet and tear when you open the door. Wash seal with a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry it thoroughly after cleaning. Caution! Only after the door seals are completely dry should the appliance be powered on. Warning! The LED light must not be replaced by the user!
