Has an odor occured after the product has been installed?





New products may smell due to plastic material and other parts. 


How to fix


When strong odors are present, cleaning with diluted isocol alcohol helps to reduce the odor.

The interrnal Deodorizer (where fitted ) will also help reduce the odor. 

Odors can also occur when the deodorizer needs to be cleaned.

Clean the deodorizer and inside of the refrigerator as per the user guide.



※ Deodorizer can be used semi-permanently. wash in warm water & dishwashing liquid. Dry with a hair dryer or in sunlight

※ When food with a strong smell is captured by the deodorizer, it may then need to be replaced.
