WARNING: Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they are of type recommended by the manufacturer.

Carrying and installing

Carry the appliance carefully and avoid collisions and big shakes .

The incline angle should be less than 45° during carrying to avoid damages of the cooling system.

The ground should be flat, sturdy and horizontal for a stable installing. It is not only for safety, but also for a stable working of the compressor without big shocks and noises.

Install the appliance in a dry place. The appliance will get rusted and have a poor insulation if in a place with humidity or water for a long time.
Do not install the appliance in the outside place where rain can reach.

Check all the positions for the package. Pack the appliance according to the original one before carrying.

Do not place the appliance under sunshine or near heating sources.
It will increase the power consumption and decrease plastic parts or surface coatings life.

The appliance should have some distance from circumferences for good ventilation, heat radiation and power consumption decreasing.

Usage at the first time

Place the appliance according to the installing requirements. Open the door for air ventilating.

Clean the inner cabinet before using.

After installing the appliance, wait for 30 minutes at least before switching on the appliance. ( During transportation the oil in the compressor may have flowed into the refrigeration system.)
At the beginning, the cabinet is hot and the compressor will work for a long time and then stopped by the thermostat at the set temperature. At that time, the compressor can works and stops regularly.
Recommend to put goods into the cabinet when the cabinet temperature reaches the set temperature.


The cabinet temperature is controlled by the thermostat on the panel. The thermostat can set a suitable temperature range according to different ambient temperatures and different kinds and QTY of goods.
The red indicator is the POWER indicator. When plugging in, the red indicator works.
The green indicator is the OPERATION indicator. When the compressor runs, the green indicator works.
The thermostat knob can be rotated freezer and refrigeration ,when rotating to refrigeration , the cabinet temperature will be for refrigeration; and when rotating to freezer , the cabinet temperature will be for freezing. Rotate thermostat clockwise , it will be for refrigeration , the cooling time will be longer and the stopping time will be shorter , in this way the cabinet temperature will be lower . Rotate thermostat widdershins ,the stopping time will be longer and cooling time will be shorter , the cabinet temperature will be higher.
After adjusting the thermostat, it will take some time to reach the stable working.

General knowledge for usage

Keep some spaces between stored goods. It do good for cooling air circulating and heat exchange and a better cooling effect will be achieved.

For hot food, hold it cooled and then put into the appliance. If put it in hot status, it will decrease the cooling level of the goods nearby.

Put labels marked time onto the goods. The goods stored early should be taken out early.

When switching off or a power cut, must restart after 5 minutes minimum.
Or it will shorten the compressor life or even damage the compressor.

Seal the food by fresh kept bags or closed container to avoid smell-mixed or dry.

Open the door as briefly as possible. Make sure the door closed wholly to save power consumption.

Set different cooling temperatures according to different goods. Too low cooling temperature will waste power consumption.

If know a power cut in advance, set the thermostat for a low temperature and keep the appliance cooling for some time. And open the door as briefly as possible. When power is cut, try not to open the door and do not add goods into the appliance.

Cleaning and maintaining the appliance

Regular cleaning and maintaining can prolong the life of the appliance and increase the cooling efficiency.
Plug out before cleaning or maintaining.

Clean the inner cabinet and outer shell in soft clothes with neutral agent & warm water.
Do not use hot water, corrosive cleaning agents or organic agent .

After maintaining, check the below points to make sure safety.

  1. If the connection is good between the plug and the socket?
  2. If the plug is hot abnormally?
  3. If there is any cranny or nick on the cord?

Clean the door seal by a bleacher which diluted by 10 times water. Then remove the remains by clear water.

Before stopping for a long time, the appliance should be switched off, plugged out, cleaned wholly and dried for some days .


Moisture in goods and air will change into frost on the low temperature surface of the evaporator
( the inner surface of the cabinet).
The frost will decrease the cooling effect. If the frost thickness reaches 5 ~ 7mm, defrosting should
be carried out.

  1. Switch off and plug out, and take out all the stored goods.
  2. Open the door, and remove the frost by a special defrosting shovel when the frost gets soft.
  3. Open the drain hole on the bottom, and open the drain cover on the outer shell. The frost water will go out through the drain pipe.
  4. Wipe off all the frost water, then plug in and switch on the appliance.
    When the cabinet temperature reaches the set temperature, put the goods back.

Do not defrost by metal edge tools or electrical heating tools. They may damage the evaporator

Faults and diagnosing

No cooling

Bad cooling effects

  • Check if there is a power cut.
  • Check if the connection between the plug and the socket is good.
  • Check if the fuse is switched off.
  • Check if the currency protector is workable. ( If the appliance is fixed with a currency protector)
  • Check if the thermostat is on a suitable position.
  • Check if the appliance is exposed to sunlight or near heat sources.
  • Check if there is dust on the compressor and condenser.
  • Check if the stored goods are too many.
  • Check if there is no enough spaces between the goods.
  • Check if some goods are hot.
  • Check if open the door too frequently.
  • Check if the door is closed wholly.
  • Check if the frost on inner cabinet is too thick.

The appliance does not stop working

Big noise

  • Check if the thermostat is on too high temperature.
  • Check if put into too many goods.
  • Check if the ambient temperature is too high.
  • Check if the ground is flat and sturdy.
  • Check if the appliance closes to walls.
  • Check if the appliance contacts something which is easily shocked.

Non-fault instances

When the ambient temperature is to high or opening the door very rarely, there is frost on the door frame and door seal. Just wipe off the frost water.
The appliance has a sound like water current or water boiling. The refrigerant goes trough the pipe to cause this sound.
The compressor and the condenser are hot when working.
The compressor works for a long time if too many goods put inside.
The compressor works for a long time if the ambient temperature is high in summer.

If a problem can not be handled according to the instruction manual, please contact the Service Dept soon. Do not try to repair the appliance by yourselves.
