Energy Saving Tips
- This appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat sources and heating ducts, as well as away from direct sunlight.

- Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the fridge. The will cut down on frost build-up.
- The storage bin should not be lined with aluminium foil, wax paper or paper towelling. These liners will interfere with the cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.
