General Cleaning Tips
• When cleaning the inside or outside of the
appliance, do not wipe it with a rough brush,
toothpaste, or flammable materials. Do not use
cleaning agents containing flammable
substances. This may cause discoloration or
damage to the appliance.
- Flammable substances: alcohol (ethanol,
methanol, isopropyl alcohol, isobutyl alcohol,
etc.), thinner, bleach, benzene, flammable
liquid, abrasive, etc.
• After cleaning, check if the power cable is
Cleaning the Exterior
• When cleaning the outside air vents of the
appliance by means of vacuuming, then the
power cord should be unplugged from the outlet
to avoid any static discharge that can damage
the electronics or cause an electric shock.
Regular cleaning of the rear and side ventilation
covers is recommended to maintain reliable and
economical operation of the unit.
• Keep the air vents on the exterior of the
appliance clean. Blocked air vents can cause fire
or appliance damage.
• Waxing external painted metal surfaces helps
provide rust protection. Do not wax plastic parts.
Wax painted metal surfaces at least twice a year
using appliance wax (or auto paste wax). Apply
wax with a clean, soft cloth.
• For the appliance exterior, use a clean sponge or
soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth. Do not use
contaminated cloths when cleaning the stainless
steel doors. Always use a dedicated cloth and
wipe in the same direction as the grain. This
helps reduce surface staining and tarnishing.
Cleaning the Interior
• When removing a shelf or drawer from inside
the appliance, remove all stored foods from the
shelf or drawer to prevent injury or damage to
the appliance. Otherwise, injury may occur due
to the weight of stored foods.
• Detach the shelves and drawers and clean them
with water, and then dry them sufficiently,
before replacing them.
• Regularly wipe the door gaskets with a wet soft
• Door basket spills and stains should be cleaned
as they can compromise storage ability of the
basket and could even be damaged.
• Never clean the shelves or containers in the
dishwasher. The parts may become deformed
due to the heat.
Cleaning the Condenser Cover
Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush to clean the
condenser cover and vents. Do not remove the
panel covering the condenser coil area.
We recommend that this be done every 12 months
to maintain operating efficiency.
