The freezing speed of the product is related to the amount and temperature of contents stored in the freezer. The thermostat should be adjusted to maximum gear 24 hours before placing room temperature contents into the freezer. If contents are added to the freezer at room temperature prepare ice for cold storage. The large food should be divided into small pieces for better freezing.
Note: It is recommended to grease the hinge of the freezer regularly to extend the life of the hinge.

2.2 Temperature Control

Honeywell H35CFW 3.5 Cubic Feet Chest Freezer - Temperature Control

The interior temperature of the freezer is adjusted through the thermostat knob.
Rotate the knob clockwise to adjust.

2.3 Placement

  • Before using the freezer, remove all packaging materials including bottom cushions, foam pads, and tape inside, and tear off the protective film on the door and the freezer body.
  • The freezer should be placed in a well-ventilated indoor place on the ground that is flat and sturdy.
  • Keep away from heat and avoid direct sunlight. Do not place the freezer in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
  • Please leave at least 70 cm of space above the freezer, and 20 cm from both sides and backside to facilitate heat dissipation.

2.4 Start to Use

  • The freezer must stand for half an hour before connecting power when it is first started.
  • Run the freezer for 2 to 3 hours, or 4+ hours in the summer, before loading fresh or frozen food.

2.5 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 direct sunlight.
  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing them in the appliance.
    Overloading the appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Food that freezes 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 the 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.


3.1 Cleaning

  • Clean dust behind the freezer 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 freezer regularly to avoid odor.
  • Please turn off the power before cleaning the interior, and remove all food, shelves, drawers, etc.
  • Use a soft cloth or sponge to clean the inside of the freezer, 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 freezer or contaminate food.
  • Clean the baskets with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water or diluted detergent. Then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth or naturally.
  • Wipe the outer surface of the freezer 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 toothpaste), 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.
