Names of Components
Names of Components
  • The refrigerating chamber is suitable for storage of a variety of fruit, vegetables, beverages and other food to consume in the short term.
  • Cooked food shall not be put in the refrigerating chamber until cooled to room temperature.
  • It is recommended to seal food before putting into the refrigerator.
Temperature Control
Temperature Control
  • The numbers on the thermostat knob indicate the temperature level.
    “1” is the warmest setting;
    ”6” is the coldest setting;
    “OFF” means power off;
    The higher the number, the lower the temperature inside the refrigerator will be.
  • Before using the refrigerator, remove all packaging materials including bottom cushions, foam pads and tape inside, tear off the protective film on the door and the refrigerator body.
  • The refrigerator should be placed in a well-ventilated indoor place on ground that is flat and sturdy.
  • Keep away from heat and avoid direct sunlight. Do not place the refrigerator in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
  • Please leave at least 30 cm of space above the upright Refrigerator, and 10 cm from both sides and backside to facilitate heat dissipation.
Start to Use
  • The refrigerator must stand upright for half an hour before connecting power when it is first started.
  • Run the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours, or 4+ hours in the summer, before loading fresh or frozen food.
Energy Saving Tips
  • The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance. Overloading the appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Food that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
  • Be sure to wrap food properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance to cut down frost build-up inside the appliance.
  • Do not line storage bin with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper towels. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.
  • Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.

  • Clean dust behind the refrigerator and on the ground to improve the cooling effect and energy saving.
  • Check the door gasket regularly to make sure there is no debris. Clean the door gasket with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water or diluted detergent.
  • Clean the interior of the refrigerator regularly to avoid odor.
  • Please turn off the power before cleaning interior, remove all food, shelves, drawers, etc.
  • Use a soft cloth or sponge to clean the inside of the refrigerator, with two tablespoons of baking soda and a quart of warm water. Then rinse with water and wipe clean. After cleaning, open the door and let it dry naturally before turning on the power.
  • For areas that are difficult to clean (such as narrow gaps or corners), it is recommended to wipe them regularly with a soft rag, soft brush, etc. to ensure no contaminants or bacteria accumulate in these areas.
  • Do not use soap, detergent, scrub powder, spray cleaner, etc., as these may cause odors in the interior of the refrigerator or contaminate food.
  • Clean the bottle frame, shelves and drawers with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water or diluted detergent. Dry with a soft cloth or dry naturally.
  • Wipe the outer surface of the refrigerator with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water, detergent, etc., and then wipe dry.
  • Do not use hard brushes, clean steel balls, wire brushes, abrasives (such as toothpastes), organic solvents (such as alcohol, acetone, banana oil, etc.), boiling water, acid or alkaline items, which may damage the cooler surface and interior. Boiling water and organic solvents such as benzene may deform or damage plastic parts.
  • Do not rinse directly with water or other liquids during cleaning to avoid short circuits or damage to the electrical insulation.

Power off the refrigerator and disconnect the plug from the wall socket. Open the door and remove all the food to a cool place. Clean the drain pipe, paying special attention to cleaning the compressor compartment water draining tray to avoid water overflowing onto the ground. It is recommended to remove the frost by a plastic scraper, or let the temperature rise naturally until the frost melts. Then wipe away the remaining ice and water, and plug in the refrigerator. After defrosting, put all food back into the refrigerator, and power on.

Stop Using
  • Power failure: Food can usually be preserved for a couple of hours in case of power failure.
    It is recommended to reduce the frequency of opening the door and to not put fresh food into the refrigerator.
  • Long-time nonuse: Please unplug unused refrigerator for cleaning. Keep the door open to avoid odor.
  • Moving: Do not turn upside or shake the refrigerator, the carrying angle can not be greater than 45°.
    Do not hold the door and hinge when moving this unit.

Continuous operation is recommended when the refrigerator is started. To prevent affecting the refrigerator’s service life, please do not stop the refrigerator under normal circumstances.


In operationEnsure the refrigerator is plugged in and connected to power Check that the voltage is not low
The temperature control knob is not set to “OFF“
OdorThoroughly clean the interior of the refrigerator.
Long-term operation of compressorDo not overload the refrigerator
Do not put hot contents in the refrigerator
Note that it is normal that the refrigerator operates for a longer time in summer when the ambient temperature is higher
Light is outCheck whether the refrigerator is connected to power supply. If the light is damaged, have it replaced by a specialist.
Doors cannot be properly closedCheck for any items blocking the refrigerator door or unbalanced items.
Check if the refrigerator is tilted
Loud noiseEnsure that the refrigerator is sitting on a flat and stable surface Ensure that the refrigerator accessories are properly placed
Door seal fails to be tightRemove foreign matter from the door seal.
Heat the door seal and then cool it for restoration (or use an electrical drier or a hot towel for heating).
Water pan overflowsHeavy defrosting may occur when there is too much food in the refrigerating chamber or if the food contains too much water.
Frosting may occur if the doors are not properly closed, as entry of air could cause frosting which could increase water overflow during defrost.
Hot housingHeat dissipation of the built-in condenser via the housing is normal.
When housing becomes hot due to high ambient temperature or storage of too much food, provide ventilation to facilitate heat dissipation.
Surface condensationCondensation on the exterior of the door seals is normal when the ambient humidity is too high. Wipe condensation with a clean towel.
Abnormal noiseThe compressor may cause a buzzing sound when starting up or shutting down.
The solenoid valve or electric switch valve may create a clattering sound which is normal and does not affect the operation.
