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

2 Refrigerator shelves

Instruction Manual

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.




Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.

This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prongplug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.

Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard2-prongwall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded3-prongwall outlet.

The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.

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 UL/CUL-Listed,3-wiregrounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.


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.



Temperature Control

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 max-position.

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.

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 appliance will not start.


Cleaning Your Appliance

Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the appliance, and remove the food, shelves,

and trays.

Wash the inside with warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.

Wash the shelves and trays with a mild detergent solution. Plastic parts cannot be washed in a dishwasher.

The outside of the appliance should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.

The condenser coils should be vacuumed when they are dusty or dirty.

Clean the drain pan on the refrigerator compressor. Do not remove the drain pan.

After cleaning, connect the appliance to power supply and reload the packages.

Power Failure

Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your food.

Vacation Time

During long absences, remove all the food; unplug your appliance, clean your appliance, and leave the door slightly open to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold, or odors.

Moving Your Appliance

Remove all the food.

Securely tape down all loose items inside your appliance.

Turn the leveling screws up to the base to avoid damage.

Tape the doors shut.

Be sure the appliance stays in the upright position during transportation.
