?2 Shelves in Refrigerator Section

?1 Crisper

?1 Crisper Glass Lid

?1 Ice Cube Tray

?1 Instruction Manual

?Before connecting the refrigerator/freezer to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.

?Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.

Installing Your Refrigerator/freezer

?This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.

?Place your refrigerator/freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support the refrigerator/freezer when it is fully loaded. To level your refrigerator/freezer, adjust the leveling leg at the bottom of the refrigerator/freezer.

?Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator/freezer, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.

?Locate the refrigerator/freezer away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the refrigerator/freezer not to perform properly.

?Avoid locating the refrigerator/freezer in moist areas.

?Plug the refrigerator/freezer into an exclusive, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not


under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Avanti Products service center.

?After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3hours before placing food in the refrigerator and freezer compartments.

Electrical Connection


Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.

This refrigerator/freezer should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this refrigerator/freezer is equipped with a three-prongplug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.

Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug that mates with a standard 3-prong grounding wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from the appliance.

This refrigerator/freezer requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical outlet with three -prongground. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard2-prongwall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prongwall outlet.

The cord should be secured behind the refrigerator/freezer and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.

The refrigerator/freezer should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the refrigerator/freezer by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the refrigerator/freezer, be careful not to damage the power cord.

Extension Cord

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord with this refrigerator/freezer. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed,3-wiregrounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
