OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
?Setting the Temperature Control
?To control the internal temperature, adjust the control dial according to the ambient temperature or purpose of use.
?The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to “cold.”
?The range of the temperature control is from position "warm to cold.” After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “MID” should be correct for home or office refrigerator use.
?If the unit is unplugged, power lost, or turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the refrigerator will not start.
?Use of the Ice Cube Trays
?For your ice requirements, fill approximately ¾ of the tray after washing it.
?If you want to make ice cubes quick, set thermostat to “cold” position.
?To release the ice cubes, hold the tray upside down and twist slightly at both ends until the pieces of ice fall.
?The Chiller Compartment
?This compartment is designed for production of ice cubes and short term storage
?The temperature in this compartment does not get cold enough to freeze food safely for long periods of time and works best when the food is already frozen.
?By design; this chiller compartment is not a true freezer, and may not keep ice cream frozen, or freeze items.
?A colder setting may be used for these items, but other items in the refrigerator may also be affected.
?The chiller door is susceptible to breaking due to excessive ice build up. This part is not covered under your warranty. Be sure to defrost when the ice reaches ¼ inch thick.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
?Defrosting Your Refrigerator
Defrost the refrigerator when the frost accumulated on the evaporator is about 5mm (1/5 inch) thick. Set the thermostat dial to “OFF” or “DEFROST” position. Remove frozen or perishable foods. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. After defrosting, return the thermostat dial to the desired position. To defrost quickly remove all foods from the refrigerator and leave the door open. Never use a knife or other metal instrument to scrape ice/frost from the evaporator.
