Before Putting Into Use

handling.
z
Clean your unit thoroughly before putting into use. (See How to Clean)
z
Use the parts diagram on page 3 to insure proper positioning of internal components.
Tips for Energy Savings
z
Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible, particularly in warm /
humid conditions.
z
Maintain adequate ventilation around the back and sides of the unit.
z
Maintain a thermostat setting of between “3” and “5” under normal use.
z
Allow warm food to cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator or freezer.

Important Safety Instructions
DANGER: Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:
z
Take off the doors.
z
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
z
The appliance must be correctly connected to the power supply. (See: “HOW TO INSTALL”).
z
Do not use an extension cord as this can negatively affect the performance of the unit.
z
Do not touch the cooled surfaces while the appliance operates, especially not with wet hands,
because the skin may stick to the cold surfaces.

cause glass bottles and aluminum cans to rupture.
z
If the unit fails to cool properly, dispose of spoiled food as needed.
z
All repairs should be made by a qualified service technician. Repairs made by non-qualified
personnel will void the warranty.

HOW TO OPERATE
Starting Your New Refrigerator
1.
Clean the refrigerator thoroughly. Wipe the outside with a soft dry cloth, the interior with a
clean moist cloth.
2.
Insert the power supply cord into the socket.
3.
Turn the thermostat dial to “7”. Close the door and let the refrigerator operate for 15-20
minutes.
4.
Reduce the thermostat to a mid-range setting between “3” and “5” on the thermostat control.
Temperature Control
To control the internal temperature, adjust the
thermostat dial. “1” is the warmest setting. “7”
is the coldest.
The Dial may be set any place on the scale. It
does not have to be set exactly on a number.

make
ice
cubes

the
freezer
compartment, adjust the thermostat to the
coldest setting.
Note: Wait 3-5 minutes before restarting if you unplug the refrigerator. The unit may fail to
operate properly if restarted too quickly.
How To Defrost
Defrost the freezer compartment when the ice / frost is approximately ¼” thick. Set the thermostat
dial to “0” to defrost. Remove all contents from the freezer compartment. Leave the freezer door
open to allow accumulated ice / frost to melt. Remove large pieces of ice as needed. Do not use
hot water or other electric heating devices to melt the accumulated ice. After defrosting, remove
accumulated ice / water and wipe the freezer compartment dry with a soft cloth. Restart the unit
per starting instructions.
Never use a knife or other sharp metal instrument to scrape ice/frost from the evaporator.
