Level ground Place the refrigerator on the solid and flat ground (floor) to keep it stable, or else, it will give rise to vibration and noise. When the refrigerator is placed on such flooring materials as carpet, straw mat, polyvinyl chloride, the solid backing plates should be applied underneath the refrigerator, so as to prevent color change due to heat dissipation. Unobstructed ventilation shall be maintained around the appliance or in an embedded structure. Preparations for use 1. Standing time After the refrigerator is properly installed and well cleaned, do not switch it on immediately. Make sure to energize the refrigerator after more than 1 hour’s standing, so as to ensure its normal operation. 2. Cleaning Confirm the accessory parts inside the refrigerator and wipe the inside with a soft cloth. 3. Power-on Insert the plug into the solid socket to start the compressor. After 1 hour, open the refrigerator door, if the temperature inside the refrigerator compartment drops obviously, it indicates the refrigeration system is working normally. 4. Storage of food After the refrigerator runs for a period of time, the internal temperature of the refrigerator will be automatically controlled according to the user’s temperature setting. After the refrigerator is fully cooled, put in foods, which usually need 2—3 hours to be fully cooled. In summer, when the temperature is high, it takes more than 4 hours for the foods to be fully cooled (Try to open the refrigerator door as less as possible before the internal temperature cools down). If the refrigerator is installed in the moisture place, make sure to check whether the ground wire and leakage circuit breaker are normal. If vibration noises are produced due to the refrigerator contacting the wall or if the wall gets blackened by air convection around the compressor, move the refrigerator away from the wall. Setting up the refrigerator may cause jamming noise or image chaos to the mobile phone, fixed-line telephone, radio receiver, television surrounding it, so try to keep the refrigerator as far away as possible in such case. Functions Temperature selection The temperature of the appliance can be adjusted by turning the thermostat dial. • The thermostat can be set between 1 and 7. • 1 is the warmest setting. • 7 is the coldest setting. • The recommended setting is 4. • Set the dial to OFF to turn off the cooling function. 1 7 Internal temperature of the appliance can vary based on ambient temperature, the quantity of items stored and how frequently the door is opened. Instructions for food storage Precautions for use e The appliance might not operate consistently (there is possibility of defrosting or temperature becoming too warm in the frozen food compartment) when sited for an extended period of time below the cold limit of the temperature range for which the refrigerating appliance is designed The information of climate type of the appliance is provided on the rating plate. The internal temperature could be affected by such factors as the location of refrigerating appliance, ambient temperature, and frequency of door open, etc., and if appropriate, a warning that setting of any temperature control device might have to be varied to allow for these factors should be made. Effervescent drinks should not be stored in the freezer compartment or the low-temperature compartment, and some products such as water ices should not be consumed too cold. Food storage location Due to the cold air circulation in the refrigerator, the temperature of each area in the refrigerator is different, so different
****** Page 6 ****** kinds of food should be placed in different areas. The fresh food compartment is suitable for the storage of such foods as need not to be frozen, the cooked food, beer, eggs, some condiments that need cold preservation, milk, fruit juice, etc. The crisper box is suitable for the preservation of vegetables, fruits, etc. The freezer compartment is suitable for the storage of ice cream, frozen food and the foods to be preserved for a long time. Use of the fresh food compartment Set the temperature of the fresh food storage compartment between 2 oc —8 C, and store the foods that are intended for short-term storage, or to be eaten at any time in the fresh food compartment. Fridge shelf: When removing the shelfi lift it up first, and then pull it out; and when installing the shelf, place it into position before putting it down. (For the two-section shelf, push the first section to the rear end, and then pull the second section out). Keep the shelf rear flange upward, to prevent foods from contact the liner wall. When taking out or putting in the shelf, hold it firmly, and handle with care to avoid damage. Crisper box: Pull out the crisper box for access to food. After using or cleaning the cover plate of the crisper box, be sure to put it back onto the crisper, so that the internal temperature of the crisper box will not be affected. Tips for shopping the frozen foods 1 . When you are buying frozen food, look at the Storage Guidelines on the packaging. You will be able to store each item of frozen food for the period shown against the star rating. This is usually the period stated as “Best to use them beforex”, found on the front of the packaging. 2. Check the temperature of the frozen food cabinet in the shop where you buy the frozen foods. 3. Make sure the frozen food package is in perfect condition. 4. Always buy frozen products last on your shopping trip or visit to the supermarket. 5. Try to keep frozen food together whilst shopping and on the journey home, as this will help to keep the food cooler. 6. Don’t buy frozen food unless you can freeze it straight away. Special insulated bags can be bought from most supermarkets and hardware shops. These keep the frozen foods cold longer. 7. For some foods, thawing before cooking is unnecessary. Vegetables and pasta can be added directly to boiling water or steam cooked. Frozen sauces and soups can be put into a saucepan and heated gently until thawed. 8. Use quality food and handle it as little as possible. When foods are frozen in small quantities, it will take less than for them to freeze up and thaw. 9. Estimate the amount of foods to be frozen up. When freezing large amounts of fresh food, adjust the temperature control knob to the low mode, with the freezer temperature lowered. So, foods can be frozen up in fast manner, with the food freshness well kept. Cautions for food storage You’d better clean the foods and wipe them dry before storing them inside the refrigerator. Before foods are put in the refrigerator, it is advisable to seal them up, so as to prevent water evaporation to keep fresh fruits and vegetables on one hand, and prevent taint of odor on the other hand. Do not put too many or too weight foods inside the refrigerator. Keep enough space between foods; if too close, the cold air flow will be blocked, thus affecting the refrigeration effect. Do not store excessive or overweight foods, to avoid the shelf from being crushed. When storing the foods, keep a distance away from the inner wall; and do not place the water-rich foods too close to the fridge rear wall, lest they get frozen on the inner wall. Categorized storage of foods: Foods should be stored by category, with the foods you eat every day placed in front of the shelf, so that the door open duration can be shortened and food spoilage due to expiration can be avoid. Energy-saving tips: Allow the hot food cool down to the room temperature before putting it in the refrigerator. Put the frozen food in the fresh food compartment to thaw, using the low temperature of the frozen food to cool the fresh foodi thus saving energy. Storage of fruits and vegetables In the case of refrigerating appliances with chill compartment, a statement to the effect that some types of fresh vegetables and fruits are sensitive to cold and therefore are not suitable for storage in this kind of compartment should be made. Tips for special needs Moving the refrigerator/freezer •Location Do not place your refrigerator/freezer near a heat source, e.g. cooker, boiler or radiator. Avoid it from direct sunlight in out-buildings or sun lounges. •Leveling Make sure to level your refrigerator/freezer using the front leveling feet. If not level, the refrigerator/freezer door gasket sealing performance will be affected, or even it may lead to the operating failure of your refrigerator/freezer. After locating the refrigerator/freezer in position, wait for 4 hours before using it, so as to allow the refrigerant to settle. •Installation Do not cover or block the vents or grilles of your appliance. When you are out for a long time If the appliance will not be used for several months, turn it off first, and then unplug the plug from the wall outlet. Take out all foods. • Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door ajar: block it open or have the door removed if necessary. • Keep the cleaned appliance in a dry, ventilated place and away from the heat source, place the appliance smoothly, and
****** Page 7 ****** do not place heavy objects on top of it. •The unit should not be accessible to child’s play. Maintenance and cleaning Before cleaning, unplug the power plug first; Do not plug in or plug out the plug with wet hand, because there is a risk of electric shock and injury. Do not spill water directly on the refrigerator, to avoid rust, electricity leakage and accidents. Do not stretch your hands into the bottom of the refrigerator, since you might be scratched by sharp metal corners. Internal cleaning and external cleaning The food residuals in the refrigerator are liable to produce bad odor, so the refrigerator must be cleaned regularly. The fresh food compartment is usually cleaned once a month. Remove all shelves, crisper box, bottle racks, cover board, and drawers etc., and clean them with a soft towel or sponge dipped in warm water or neutral detergent. Clear off the dusts accumulated on the rear panel and side plates of the refrigerator often. After using detergent, be sure to rinse it with clean water, and then wipe it dry. Do not use bristle brush, steel wire brush, detergent, soap powder, alkaline detergent, benzene, gasoline, acid, hot water and other corrosive or soluble items to cleanse the cabinet surface, door gasket, plastic decorative parts, etc., so as to avoid damage. Carefully wipe dry the door gasket, clean the groove using a wooden chopstick wrapped with cotton string. After the cleaning, fix the four corners of the door gasket first, and then embed it segment by segment into the door groove. Interruption of power supply or failure of the refrigerating system •Take care of the frozen foods in the event of an extended non-running of the refrigerating appliance (such as interruption of power supply or failure of the refrigerating system). •Try to open the refrigerator door as less as possible, in this way can food safely and freshly kept for hours even in hot summer. •If you get the power outage notice in advance: 1) Adjust the thermostat knob to the high mode an hour in advance, so that foods get fully frozen (Do not store new food during this time!). Restore the temperature mode to the original setting when power supply becomes normal in a timely manner. 2) You can also make ice with a watertight container, and put it in the upper part of the freezer, so as to extend the time for fresh food to be stored. Note: Once the refrigerator is used, you’d better use it continuously; and under normal circumstance, do not stop its use, so as not to affect the service life. Changing the lamp The LED lamp is used by the refrigerator for lighting, which features low energy consumption and long service life. In case of any abnormality, please contact the after-sales personnel for visiting service. The LED lamps can only be replaced by the after-sales personnel. Lamp type: LED light, Safety-check after maintenance Is the power cord broken or damaged? Is the power plug firmly inserted into the socket? Is the power plug abnormally overheat?
