The refrigerator does not work.

It may not be properly connected to the power supply, or the voltage may be too low.

The refrigerator does not work as efficiently as expected.

It may be caused by heavy frost, the temperature setting being

to warm, or by frequently opening and closing the door.

It makes strange noises.

The noises may be caused by the refrigerator not being stabilized. Make

sure that the surface that the refrigerator is on is flat and firm. Noise can

also be caused by resonation between the refrigerator and objects near it.

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 to position 1.

The inside of the refrigerator has a bad odor.

Food with a strong odor should be packed in tightly closed containers before

storing in the refrigerator or freezer. Make sure to regularly clean out your

refrigerator and make sure that you do not leave spoiled food in the refrigerator.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the refrigerator.

The drain tube is probably jammed. Contact a qualified technician to repair it.

Heavy frost occurs in the back of the appliance.

Putting humid or hot food into the refrigerator or freezer may cause this

problem. Or it may be caused by a lot of moisture in the environment.

Energy Saving Tips

Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible,

particularly in warm or humid conditions.

Maintain adequate ventilation around the back and sides of the unit.

Maintain a thermostat setting of 3-4 under normal use.

Allow warm food to cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.

Excessive ice build-up will increase energy consumption.

Defrost the unit when ice/frost is ¼" thick.
NOTE: DO NOT place objects on top of the refrigerator that are magnetic, heavy or filled

with water. Electronic components may not work properly if water gets inside. DO NOT

store valuables or objects sensitive to temperature inside the refrigerator or freezer.
