CE Conformity

By placing the mark on this product, we are confirming compliance to all relevant European safety, health, and environmental requirements that are applicable in legislation for this product.


For better energy savings, we suggest:

  • Installing the appliance away from heat sources and not exposed to direct sunlight and in a well-ventilated room.
  • Avoid putting hot food into the refrigerator to avoid increasing the internal temperature and therefore causing continuous functioning of the compressor.
  • Do not excessively stuff foods so as to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Defrost the appliance in case there is ice (see DEFROSTING) to facilitate the transfer of cold.
  • In case of the absence of electrical energy, it is advisable to keep the refrigerator door closed.
  • Open or keep the doors of the appliance open as little as possible
  • Avoid adjusting the thermostat to temperatures too cold.
  • Remove dust present on the rear of the appliance (see CLEANING).
  • Total no frost Audy( with the display on the door): remove all the baskets in the freezer compartment;
  • Total no frost ( with internal user interface for fridge and knob for the freezer): remove other baskets in freezer compartment but keep a bottom drawer in its position
  • Frost free model: remove other baskets in the freezer compartment but keep a bottom drawer in its position.
  • All normal static models: remove all drawers in the freezer compartment.


Well Ventilating
There is a need of good ventilation around the refrigerator for easy dissipation of heat, high efficiency of refrigeration, and low power consumption. For this purpose, sufficient clear space should be needed around the refrigerator. Its back is at least 100mm away from the wall, its sides at least have a space of 100mm separately and the height from over its top is not less than 200mm. Clear space should be left to open its doors to 160°.

Power Supply
The refrigerator is only applied with a power supply of a single-phase alternating current of (220240)V~/50Hz;230V~/60Hz. If fluctuation of voltage in the district user is of so large that the voltage exceeds the above scope, for safety sake, be sure to apply a.c. automatic voltage regulator to the refrigerator. The refrigerator must employ a special power socket instead of a common one with other electric appliances. Its plug must match the socket with ground wire.

Power Line Cord
The cord should be neither lengthened nor folded into the coil during operation. Moreover, it is forbidden that cord is kept close to the compressor at the back of the refrigerator, the surface temperature of which is quite high when operating. Touching with it would deactivate the insulation or cause leakage for electricity.

Protection from
Moisture Avoid placing the refrigerator in a place where heavy moisture is present so as to minimize the possibility of rusty its metal parts. Still more, the refrigerator is forbidden to be directly sprayed by water, otherwise, poor insulation and current leakage would occur.

Protection from Heat
The refrigerator should be far away from any heat source or direct sunshine.

Fixing Stable 
The floor on which the refrigerator will be placed must be flat and solid. It should not be laid on any soft material such as foam plastic, etc. If the refrigerator is not on the same level, adjust the screws suitably. the refrigerator should not be placed near anything which may echo.

Keep Away from Danger
It is inadvisable that the refrigerator is placed near any volatilizable or combustible such as gas, petrol, alcohol, lacquer and banana oil, etc. The above-mentioned objects can not be stored in the refrigerator.
When fixed or moved, the refrigerator can not be set horizontally or decline to more than 45° or upsidedown.


  • Water contained in food or getting into the air inside the refrigerator by opening doors may form a layer of frost inside, It will weaken the refrigerator when the frost is thick, while it is more than 2mm thick, you should defrost.
  • Defrosting in the freezer chamber is operated manually. Before defrosting, take the food, the ice tray, and the shelf out into the cold storing chamber temporarily then set the knob of the temperature regulator to position”0″(where the compressor will stop working) and leave the door open until ice and frost dissolve thoroughly deposited at the bottom of the freezer chamber, wipe off the water with a soft cloth., In the case of speeding up the defrosting, you may put a bowl of warm water (about 50 C )into the freezer chamber, and be sure to set the knob of the temperature regulator to its original position after defrosting.
  • It’s inadvisable to heat the freezer chamber directly with hot water or a hairdryer while defrosting to prevent deformation of the inner case.
  • It’s also inadvisable to scrape off ice and frost or separate food from the containers which have been congealed together with the food with a sharp tool or wooden bars, so as not to damage the inner casing or the surface of the evaporator.
  • If the supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must only be replaced by a repair shop appointed by the manufacturer, because special purpose tools are required.

Care and maintenance

When there is a LED lamp, please note:
This LED lamp has a long lifetime. Once it is broken, it is mandatory to call the aftersales center to get a new one.
A replacement made by unqualified people without supervision from an electrical engineer would result in electrical shock and injury.


    Check if there is a power failure.
    Check if the power plug is plugged into the power outlet.
    Check that the fuse has not blown.
    The temperature control dial may be set too high.
    If you place foodstuffs containing a lot of moisture directly under the cool air outlets, they will freeze easily.
    This does not indicate a malfunction.
    The food may be packed too tightly together which will block the flow of cool air.
    You may have put something hot or a lot of foodstuffs into the refrigerator.
    The door may not have been closed properly.
    The door gaskets may be damaged.
    The refrigerator may not be ventilated.
    There may be insufficient clearance between the refrigerator and the surfaces
    Immediately both sides and above.
    The temperature control dial may not be set properly
    Check that the drain pipe and the drain hose are not clogged. Check that the drain pan is housed properly.
    Condensation may form on the outside when the humidity is high such as during a wet season. This is the same result as the condensation formed when chilled water is poured into a glass. It does not, therefore, indicate a failure, wipe dry with a dry cloth.
    A sound like water flowing is the refrigerant flowing. It does not indicate a malfunction.
    The side panel of the cabinet will heat up when the door is opened or closed frequently, when starting the unit and when the unit operates in summer with high ambient outside temperature, In such case, do not touch the panel, it results from the dissipation of the heat from inside the cabinet, and it does not mean that something is wrong with the refrigerator.
