- In an area with extreme cold ambient temperatures.
- In an area with excessive moisture and high humidity. Make sure it is protected from elements such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.
- In an area where petrol or other explosive and/or flammable liquids or fumes are used or stored. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Levelling the Fridge (see Fig. 1)
c. Adjust both feet so the refrigerator is level.
- WARNING! It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be easily accessible after installation.
- Before plugging in your new fridge, let it stand upright for at least 2 hours. This will allow the refrigerant gases to settle into the compressor and reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system.
- The appliance must be earthed. The plug of the power supply cord is equipped with a contact for this purpose. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (earth) prong from the power cord. If the plug does not fit your outlet, consult a licensed electrician for advice to have the outlet changed.
- Plug the unit into a dedicated, properly earthed wall outlet. Ensure that your outlet voltage and circuit frequency correspond to the voltage stated on the rating label.
- Secure the fridge’s supply cord behind the unit. Do not leave it exposed or dangling to prevent injury and accidental disconnection from the power supply.
- Adjust the temperature control as described below.
- When first starting up, and after a period out of use, allow the unit to cool down for at least 2–3 hours (4 hours if starting up during warm weather in summer) before placing food in the fridge.
Using Your Fridge
The temperature controls are located on the inside of the refrigerator.
The Thermostat Controls
A) Setting: Use this button to cycle through the temperature settings from COLD – SUPER COOL
- 1: The warmest temperature setting
- 2–3: Normal operation (adequate for most situations)
- 4: The coldest setting for daily operation
- 5: Super Cool is used to get to a colder temperature in a quicker timeframe
Note: During high ambient temperatures (I.e. on hot summer days) it may be necessary to set the thermostat to the coolest setting (position 5).This may cause the compressor to run continuously in order to maintain a low temperature.
Damper Adjusting Slider
The initial position of the damper adjusting slider is on the far right side.
For better user experience, it is recommended to push the slider to the right position and turn the SETTING KEY to MID position. If it is not enough cool inside the refrigerator compartment, please check whether the slider is in left position,turn the slider to the right side.
Using for the First Time
When you install your appliance, set the thermostat to setting 3. Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is the best to wait 24 hours before adding food.
IMPORTANT: Once the unit has started, continuous operation is recommended. Please try and avoid turning the unit off and on as this may affect the service life.
- Do not store food uncovered in the fridge. Always use good quality, fridge-proof packaging to maintain food quality. Remove air from packages of solid food and seal bags tightly before freezing.
- Keep portions small to ensure they are frozen (and subsequently defrosted) rapidly.
- Make sure that fresh, unfrozen food packages do not touch food that is already frozen, thus avoiding a temperature rise in the frozen food.
- When freezing food, do not push food together too much, leave some space for air to circulate around each item. Do not place packages directly against the back wall.
- When buying frozen food, only buy quantities that you can store straight away; use an insulated container for your shopping and when you get home, place the food in the chilling compartment immediately.
- When storing pre-packed, commercially frozen food, follow the food manufacturer’s instructions for storing the food in a home fridge or freezer. Do not exceed any storage times listed on the packaging.
- Once you have opened a packet of frozen food, re-wrap it airtight to prevent surface evaporation which causes drying or freezer burn.
- Do not place carbonated liquids such as bottles of fizzy drink in the chilling compartment as the container could explode under pressure and damage the chiller.
- Do not refreeze food once it has been defrosted.
- Frozen food which has thawed accidentally should either be used immediately or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has not been completely defrosted, it may be cooked and then refrozen.
- CAUTION! Do not remove items from the chilling compartment if your hands are damp or wet as this could cause skin abrasions.
Energy Saving Tips
- The appliance should be placed in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or heating ducts. Please avoid placement in direct sunlight.
- Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing them in the appliance.
- Do not overload the appliance with unfrozen food as this may cause it to freeze slowly and risk food spoilage.
- Be sure to wrap foods properly and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance. This cuts down on frost building up inside in the unit.
- Please do not wrap items in aluminium foil, wax paper or paper towel. This materials interfere with cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.
- Organise and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, ensuring the unit is opened as few times as possible.
Maintenance and Cleaning
The refrigerator has an automatic defrosting function. Frost formed due to change of season or temperature may also be manually removed by disconnecting the appliance from power supply. Alternatively, wipe the surface with a dry towel.
WARNING: Before cleaning the appliance, make sure it is switched off and disconnected from the power supply. Failure to do so can result in electric shock or injury.
- Wash the inside surfaces and the interior accessories with a damp, warm cloth moistened in a water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 1 litre of water. Rinse and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
- Clean the outside of the unit with a damp, well wrung out cloth, keeping the area of the controls dry. Keep the lid gasket (seal) clean.
- Never use boiling water to accelerate defrosting as it may damage the plastic components.
- Regularly check the appliance for defrost water. If necessary, clean the drain. If the drain is blocked, water will collect in the base of the appliance.
- After cleaning/defrosting, push the drain plug in.
- After everything is dry, place appliance back into service.
- Allow approximately 1–2 hours for the cabinet to cool down again (depending on the length of time the appliance was disconnected from the power).
WARNING: Never clean the unit with an abrasive, acid, oil or solvent based cleaning agent. Never use flammable fluids or sprays for cleaning as the fumes from these substances can create a fire hazard or Explosion.
