This article will introduce the maintenance, cleaning and preservation of the under counter fridge freezer and matters needing attention.
(1) The frequency of the defrosting
The directly cold type fridge is usually defrosted for about every half a year, and the air-cooled/mixed cold type fridges do not need manual defrosting.
(2) The defrost methods
i. Switch off the power supply
ii. Open the door of freezing chamber and let the frost layer melt naturally.
(Note: Clean the defrosting water in time to avoid overflow; If you need to speed up the frost, you can also use electric fans to blow the ice; Shovels are strictly prohibited so as to avoid damage to the refrigeration pipeline.
iii. After the frost has completely melted, dry the freezing chamber with a dry towel, and then power on the fridge again.
( Tips: If there is food in the freezing chamber before defrosting, it is recommended to put it in the refrigerating chamber temporarily. This will not only help keep the food fresh in the refrigerating chamber, but also slow the thawing of the food.)
First unplug the power supply of the fridge, and take down the door body accessories.
With a warm wet towel, clean the surface and gap of the door seals

Install the accessories on the door and power on the machine again.
