Warnings Related to Disposal

The freezer’s refrigerant and cyclopentane foam materials are combustible materials. Discarded freezers should be isolated from fire sources and can not be burned. Please transfer the freezer to qualified professional recycling companies for processing to avoid damages to the environment or other hazards.

Please remove the door of the freezer and shelves to prevent children from entering and playing in the freezer.

Correct Disposal of this product:
This marking indicates that this product should not be disposed with other household wastes. To prevent possible harm to the environment or human health from uncontrolled waste disposal, recycle it responsibly to promote the sustainable reuse of material resources. To return your used device, please use the return and collection systems or contact the retailer where the product was purchased. Contact the retailer as many will take them back for recycling.



  • Before using the freezer, remove all packaging materials including bottom cushions, foam pads and tape inside, tear off the protective film on the door and the freezer body.
  • The freezer should be placed in a well-ventilated indoor place on ground that is flat and sturdy.
  • Keep away from heat and avoid direct sunlight. Do not place the freezer in moist or watery places to prevent rust or reduction of insulation.
  • Please leave at least 30 cm of space above the freezer, and 10 cm from both sides and backside to facilitate heat dissipation.

Leveling Feet

Schematic diagram of the leveling feet Adjusting procedures:

Honeywell H17UFS 17 Cubic Freezer FIG 1

  • a. Turn the feet clockwise to raise the freezer
  • b. Turn the feet counterclockwise to lower the freezer
  • c. Adjust the right and left feet based on the procedures above to a horizontal level

Moving the Appliance

  • Remove all objects from the appliance before moving. Secure the glass shelves, vegetable crisper, and freezer drawers with tape.
  • Tighten the leveling feet, close the doors, and secure them with tape. Keep the appliance inclined by more than 45°.
  • Do not lay the appliance on its side or upside down.

Start to Use

  • The freezer must stand upright for half an hour before connecting power when it is first started.
  • Run the freezer for 2 to 3 hours, or 4+ hours in the summer, before loading fresh or frozen food.
Energy Saving Tips
  • The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance. Overloading the appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
  • Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the appliance.
  • Do not line storage bin with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper towels. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the appliance less efficient.

  • For areas that are difficult to clean (such as narrow gaps or corners), it is recommended to wipe them regularly with a soft rag, soft brush, etc. to ensure no contaminants or bacteria accumulate in these areas.
  • Do not use soap, detergent, scrub powder, spray cleaner, etc., as these may cause odors in the interior of the freezer or contaminate food.
  • Clean the baskets with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water or diluted detergent. Then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth or naturally.
  • Wipe the outer surface of the freezer with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water, detergent, etc., and then wipe dry.
  • Do not use hard brushes, clean steel balls, wire brushes, abrasives (such as toothpastes), organic solvents (such as alcohol, acetone, banana oil, etc.), boiling water, acid or alkaline items, which may damage the cooler surface and interior. Boiling water and organic solvents such as benzene may deform or damage plastic parts.
  • Do not rinse directly with water or other liquids during cleaning to avoid short circuits or damage to the electrical insulation.
Cleaning the Door Tray

Remove the door tray before cleaning by squeezing the tray inward, then pushing the tray upward to remove. Wash the tray, then replace the tray into the door.

Honeywell H17UFS 17 Cubic Freezer FIG 4

This appliance uses an automatic defroster. Frost formed due to warmer weather or a higher ambient temperature may be removed by first disconnecting the appliance to let defrost automatically, or may be removed manually with a dry towel.

In the event of an interruption of power, food inside the appliance can be kept for
several hours if the door remains closed. Do not add any more food to the refrigerator during this time.

Power Interruptions
In the event of long-term power interruptions, unplug and clean the appliance, then leave the doors open to prevent odor build-up.




Ensure the cooler is plugged in and connected to power

Check that the voltage is not low

Check whether there is a power failure or partial circuits have tripped.

Do not overload the coolers

Long-term operation Do not open the doors too frequently

of compressor Note that it is normal that the cooler operates

for a longer time in summer when the ambient

temperature is higher


Light is out

Check whether the cooler is connected to power supply and whether the indicator light is damaged.

Loud noises

Ensure that the cooler is sitting on a flat and stable surface

Ensure that the cooler accessories are properly placed



Cooler enclosure heat condensation

The cooler enclosure may emit heat during operation, especially in summer, caused by the radiation of the condenser; this is normal.


Condensation may be detected on the exterior surface and door seals of the cooler when humidity is high; this is normal.



Airflow sound

(Buzz / Clatter)


The compresser may cause a buzzing sound when starting up or shutting down.


The solenoid valve or electric switch valve may create a clattering sound which is normal and does not affect the operation.
