Here are some tips on how to use your new refrigerator properly:
Positioning: Place the freezer in a horizontal position, away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and damp places. Leave enough space around the freezer for proper air circulation.
Cool: Allow the freezer to cool completely before adding food. This could take a few hours.
Store food: Pack food tightly to reduce the amount of air circulating in the refrigerator. Wrap food in airtight packaging or freezer bags to prevent freezer burns. Label and date the food so you know how long it has been in storage.
Temperature: Keep the refrigerator at 0°F (-18°C) or below. Use a thermometer to check the temperature regularly.

Loading and unloading: loading and unloading freezers, as fast as possible, so as not to increase the temperature. Close the door as much as possible to keep it warm inside.
Energy efficiency: Keep the refrigerator full, as this helps it run more efficiently. Clean the pan and condenser regularly to keep the freezer running efficiently. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your new refrigerator is functioning properly and that your food is kept at a safe temperature
