Starting
  • Before initial start, keep the refrigerator still for half an hour before connecting it to power supply.
  • Before putting any fresh or frozen foods, the refrigerator shall have run for 2-3 hours, or for above 4 hours in summer when the ambient temperature is high.
  • Spare enough space for convenient opening of the doors and drawers or statement by the distributor.
Energy saving tips
  • The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heatproducing 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. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
  • Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the appliance.
  • Appliance storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. 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.

Trouble shooting

You may try to solve the following simple problems by yourself

If them cannot be solved, please contact the after-sales department.

Not work Check whether the appliance is connected to power or
Whether the plug is in well contact
Check whether the voltage is too low
Check whether there is a power failure or partial circuits have tripped
Odor Odorous foods shall be tightly wrapped
Check whether there is any rotten food
Clean the inside of the refrigerator
Long-time operation of the compressor Long operation of the refrigerator is normal in summer when the ambient temperature is high
It is not suggestible having too much food in the appliance at the same time
Food shall get cool before being put into the appliance
The doors are opened too frequently
Light not work Check whether the refrigerator is connected to power supply and whether the illuminating light is damaged
Have the light replaced by a specialist
Doors can not be properly closed The door is stuck by food packages Too much food is placed
The refrigerator is tilted
Loud noise Check whether the floor is level and whether the refrigerator is placed stably
Check whether accessories are placed at proper locations
Gasket gap Remove foreign matters on the door seal
Heat the door seal and then cool it for restoration
(or blow it with an electrical drier or use a hot towel for heating)
Water tray overflows There is too much food in the chamber or food stored contains too much water,resulting in heavy defrosting
The doors are not closed properly, resulting in frosting due to entry of air and increased water due to defrosting
Over heat on sidewal Heat dissipation of the built-in condenser via the housing, which is normal
When housing becomes hot due to high ambient temperature, storage of too much food or shutdown of the compressor is shut down, provide sound ventilation to facilitate heat dissipation
Surface condensation Condensation on the exterior surface and door seals of the refrigerator
Surface condensation is normal when the ambient humidity is too high. Just wipe the condensate
Noise with a clean towel.
Noise Buzz: The compressor may produce buzzes during operation, and the buzzei are loud particularly upon start or stop. This is normal.
Creak: Refrigerant flowing inside of the appliance may produce creak, which is normal.
