WARNING or injury when using your appliance, follow these basic precautions:
Read all instructions before using the appliance.

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances are still dangerous. . . even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days.”
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer: Take off the doors. Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
Never clean appliance parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Before Using Your Appliance
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
1 Door Bin
1 Bottle Bin

Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
In case the interior accessories are not correctly placed, rearrange them as described in chapter “Parts and Features”
Installation of Your Appliance
Place your appliance on a floor that is strong enough to support the appliance when it is fully loaded. To level your appliance, adjust the legs at the front of the appliance.
Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the appliance, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.
Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the appliance not to perform properly.
Avoid locating the appliance in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to form quickly on the evaporator requiring more frequent defrosting of the appliance.

The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely necessary that it be a
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges / outages; it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you use. The surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the appliance it is connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector needed contact a licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your product warranty.
OPERATING YOUR APPLIANCE
Your appliance has only one control for regulating the temperature in the fresh food and the freezer compartment. The temperature control is located on the upper right hand side of the fresh food section.
The range of the temperature control is from position"OFF" the warmest to "6" the coldest.
The first time you turn the unit on set the temperature control to “6” or the
After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “4” should be correct for home or office appliance use.
Changes of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the appliance (choose correct setting of the thermostat knob).
To turn the thermostat off, turn the temperature control to "OFF".
Turning the temperature control to "OFF" position stops the cooling cycle but does not shut off the power to the appliance.
