- Before using the upright freezer, remove all packaging materials including bottom cushions, foam pads and tape inside, tear off the protective film on the door and the upright freezer body.
- The upright freezer should be placed in a well-ventilated indoor place on ground that is flat and sturdy.
- Keep away from heat and avoid direct sunlight. Do not place the upright freezer in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
- Please leave at least 30 cm of space above the upright freezer, and 10 cm from both sides and backside to facilitate heat dissipation.
Start to Use
- The freezer must stand upright for half an hour before connecting power when it is first started.
- Run the upright freezer for 2 to 3 hours, or 4+ hours in the summer, before loading fresh or frozen food.
Energy Saving Tips
- The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
- Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance.
Overloading the appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Food that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
- Be sure to wrap food properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance to cut down frost build-up inside the appliance.
- Do not line storage bin with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper towels.
Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.
- 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.
