****** Page 5 ****** 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 warm water using a soft cloth. Installing the Refrigerator This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in. Allow at least 5cm of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator to allow proper air ventilation. Insufficient space will result in cooling and working life issue and voiding warranty. 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. Place the refrigerator on a concrete, tile floor or waterproof floor is recommended. The fridge will produce defrost water or condensation moisture, it might cause water damage in some extreme circumstances. The front feet can be adjusted to level the appliance properly. 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 power consumption. 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. After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, turn the unit on and allow the unit to cool down for 4-6 hours before placing food in the refrigerator. Do not place heavy items on the top of this appliance. 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. Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on frost build-up 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. 3

****** Page 13 ****** TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE Problem The fridge has no power The light is not working. Compressor runs all the time Freezer is too cold and refrigerator is too warm Temperature inside the refrigerator is too warm. Solution Power cord isn’t plugged in properly. The circuit breaker tripped or a blown fuse. Try a different power point. There is no light in freezer compartment, only fridge compartment has light. Make sure the power is connected to the unit. The room temperature is hotter than normal. A large amount of food has been added to the refrigerator. The door is opened too often. The door is not closed completely. The temperature control is not set correctly. The door gasket does not seal properly. The refrigerator does not have the correct clearances. The refrigerator has recently been disconnected for a period of time. 6+ hours are required for the refrigerator to cool down completely pending on operating conditions. Change freezer air flow setting to min position The fridge might need a manual defrost due to too much moisture went into the freezer part and blocked the air channel. To do so, Keep food in a container with ice bag or another fridge if it is available. Keep both doors opening and unplug the power cord for 24 hours. Then turn on the unit and it will work properly again. Temperature control is set incorrectly. Turn the control to a cooler setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. Change freezer air flow setting to min position. Door is kept open too long or is opened too frequently. Warm air enters the refrigerator every time the door is opened). Open the door less often. The door is not closed completely. The door gasket does not seal properly. 11
****** Page 14 ****** Temperature inside the refrigerator is too cold. Temperature of external refrigerator side walls are warm. Popping or cracking sound when compressor comes on. Bubbling or gurgling sound, like water boiling. Vibrations. Moisture forms on inside refrigerator walls. Moisture forms on outside of refrigerator. The doors will not close properly. Freezer control incorrectly set. Set back to mid position. Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control to a warmer setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. For example , change the setting to No. 1. The exterior refrigerator walls can be as much as 15-2() degrees warmer than room temperature. This is normal while the compressor works to transfer heat from inside the refrigerator cabinet to the condenser behind the refrigerator side walls. Metal parts undergo expansion and contraction, as in hot water pipes. This is normal. Sound will level off or disappear as refrigerator continues to run. Refrigerant (used to cool refrigerator) is circulating throughout the system. This is normal operation. Check the refrigerator is on a level/even surface. Refrigerator rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. Be sure floor can adequately support refrigerator. Level the refrigerator by putting wood or metal shims under part of the refrigerator. The refrigerator is touching the wall. Re-level the refrigerator and move it from the wall. See “Installation Instructions”. Weather is hot and humid, which increases internal rate of frost build-up. This is normal. Door is slightly open. Door is kept open too long, or is opened too frequently. Open the door less often. The door is not sealed properly. Door is slightly open, causing cold air from inside the refrigerator to meet warm moist air from the outside. The refrigerator is not on a level surface. The gasket/ s may be dirty or not properly maintained. Clean the seals and make sure they are dry before closing the door/ s. The storage basket and/or shelves are out of position.
