The control panel enables you to view and modify features and options on your refrigerator.

Temperature control
  • When the refrigerator is first turned on, the powerful cooling system will automatically cool both refrigerator and freezer compartments to their set temperatures. This will take between 2 – 3 hours.
  • The two compartment temperatures are accurately and independently controlled and do not change with the temperature or humidity of the surroundings; whether summer or winter.
  • If you wish to alter the temperature of either the fresh food compartment or freezer compartment, this can be easily done by using the internal control panel located on the back wall of the refrigerator compartment.

  • The temperature may be altered by pressing the    or    buttons. One press on either of these buttons will reduce or increase the number of lights by one which indicates a small change in temperature.
