  • 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.

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.
Changing the Light
Any replacement or maintenance of the LED lamps is intended to be made by the manufacturer, its service agent or similar qualified person.

Replacement of incandescent lamps:

  • Disconnect the power supply before carrying out the bulb replacement.
  • Hold and remove the light bulb cover.
  • Dismantle the old bulb by unscrewing it counterclockwise and replace with a new bulb (Max. 15W) by screwing it in clockwise, and make sure it is fixed in the bulb holder tightly.
  • Reassemble the light cover and re-connect your Chest Fridge/ Freezer to the power supply.

Usage Tips

  • 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 aluminum foil, wax paper or paper towel. These materials 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, ensuring the unit is opened as few times as possible.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Defrosting
The freezer can only be manually defrosted.

  • Unplug the freezer and open the freezer door, remove foods and the shelving basket before defrosting
  • Open the outflow hole and drainage hole (place water container at the drainage hole}; the indoor frost will naturally melt, wipe the defrost water with a dry, soft cloth. When the frost softens, an ice scraper might be used to accelerating the defrosting process.
  • Please remove the food and put in a cool place when defrosting before removing accessories.

Cleaning

  • Dusts behind the refrigerator and on the ground shall be timely cleaned to improve the cooling effect and energy saving.
  • Check the door gasket regularly to make sure there are no debris. Clean the door gasket with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water or diluted detergent.
  • The interior of the refrigerator should be cleaned regularly to avoid odor.
  • Please turn off the power before cleaning, remove all food, basket, container, etc.
  • 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.
  • For areas that are difficult to clean in the freezer (such as gaps or corners), it is recommended to wipe them regularly with a soft rag, soft brush, etc. and when necessary, combined with some auxiliary tools (such as thin sticks) to ensure no contaminants or bacterial accumulation
    in these areas.
  • Never use boiling water to accelerate defrosting as it may damage the plastic components.
  • Do not use hard brushes, clean steel balls, wire brushes, abrasives (such as toothpaste), organic solvents (such as alcohol, acetone, banana oil, etc.), boiling water, acid or alkaline items, which may damage the freezer surface and interior. Boiling water and organic solvents such as benzene may deform or damage plastic parts.
  • After cleaning/defrosting, push the drain plug in.
  • After everything is dry, place the 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).

FAQs and Troubleshooting

Out of Operation 

  • Power failure: In case of power failure, even if it is in summer, foods inside the appliance can be kept for several hours; during the power failure, the times of door opening shall be reduced, and no more fresh food shall be put into the appliance.
  • Long-time non-use: The appliance shall be unplugged and then cleaned; then the doors are left open to prevent odor.
  • Moving: Before the refrigerator is moved, take all objects inside out, fix the glass partitions, vegetable holder, freezing chamber drawers and etc. with tape, and tighten the leveling feet; close the doors and fix them with tape.
