PARTS & ASSEMBLY
Your REFRIGERATOR requires very little assembly. Before using, remove all packing materials from the inside of the refrigerator, and peel off the protective film on the outside of the refrigerator. Check the refrigerator for any damage, such as misaligned or bent door, damaged door seals and sealing surfaces, broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the refrigerator or on the door. If there is any damage, DO NOT use the refrigerator. Return damaged item to the store where it was purchased.
HOW TO OPERATE
Before first use, remove all adhesive tape from the drawers, shelves, and trays.
The refrigerator should be placed on a completely flat surface. Allow 1 foot of space on each side of the refrigerator and between the refrigerator and the wall. Also allow at least 8 inches of space between the top of the refrigerator and the ceiling.
Choose a location for your refrigerator that is not exposed to sunlight, high temperature or humidity, as humidity may stain and damage the refrigerator.
The appliance can be adjusted by rolling the two legs in the bottom front of the refrigerator if it becomes unstable. Raise the refrigerator by rolling the two legs clockwise.
The surface of the location where the refrigerator is installed should be firm and flat. If refrigerator is not secured in a proper location, noise and vibration may occur. The noise may be increased if the floor is not firm. If you have to position the refrigerator on a carpeted floor, place a sheet underneath the refrigerator, such as plywood or a plastic mat, to prevent heat emissions from ruining the carpet.
Make sure that legs are pressed firmly into the floor and allow the refrigerator to lean backward slightly so that the doors remain closed.
PLACEMENT OF FOOD
There should always be some space between items inside for air circulation.
Food should be kept in sealed containers to avoid becoming dry, spoiled or creating odors in the refrigerator.
Hot food should be cooled down before placing into the appliance. Otherwise, bacteria will grow in food.
Reducing the frequency of opening the doors can lower the electronic consumption.NOTE: Do not use any electronic equipment inside the appliance.
The temperature of the refrigerator can be controlled manually by the knob. However, the number shown on the knob does not correlate to the degrees. The higher the number, the lower the interior temperature of the refrigerator will be.
0 = OFF
1 = Higher (warmer) Temperature
2-4 = Normal Use
5 = Lower (colder) Temperature
Heavy frost will effect the efficiency and performance of the refrigerator and can create increased energy consumption. If the frost inside of the freezer gets as thick as ¼ inch, you must defrost the refrigerator. Follow these steps to defrost the freezer:
Remove all food from the refrigerator and freezer.
Uninstall the drawers and shelves.
Unplug the power supply cord.
Open the doors and wait for the appliance to thaw completely.
Clean up the water with dry towels. NOTE: DO NOT use any other equipment or method to force the defrost process. It may ruin the cooling system.
DISCONNECTING THE APPLIANCE
After a power failure the refrigerator can keep food cool for several hours if doors are kept shut.
If the power fails, do not put additional food into the refrigerator or open the doors.
If you plan to have your power shut off for an extended period of time, make sure to remove all perishable food from the refrigerator or freezer first.
If you stop use of your refrigerator for an extended period of time, unplug the appliance from the outlet.
Always wait at least five minutes after unplugging the power supply cord before plugging it back in.

The compressor keeps working for a long period of time.The temperature may be too high. This can also be caused by the frequent opening and closing of the doors, or by the door being left open. Try moving the temperature setting between 4-1.
