INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Before Using Your Refrigerator

Remove the exterior and interior packing.

Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:

2 Storage shelves

Instruction manual

Before connecting the refrigerator 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.

Installation of Your Refrigerator

This appliance is designed for free-standinginstallation orbuilt-in(fully recessed) with a minimum clearance space of ½” on both sides and top.

Allow a minimum of 2 inches of space between the back of the refrigerator and the wall, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.

Place your refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support the refrigerator when it is fully loaded. To level your refrigerator, adjust the front legs at the bottom of the refrigerator.

Locate the refrigerator 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 not to perform properly.

Avoid locating the refrigerator in moist areas.

Plug the refrigerator into an exclusive, properly installed-groundedwall 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 compartment.

Electrical Connection

Warning

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 should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this refrigerator 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.

This refrigerator requires a standard 115/120a/c~volt/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prongground.

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

Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.

Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Reversing the Door Swing of Your Refrigerator

This appliance has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit is delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening direction, please call service for reversal instructions.

Cleaning Your Refrigerator

Turn the temperature control to "0", unplug the refrigerator, and remove the food, shelves, and trays.

Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.

Wash the shelves and trays with a mild detergent solution.

The outside of the refrigerator should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.

Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the controls, or any electrical parts.

Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.

Vacation Time

Short vacations: Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less than three weeks.

Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door open slightly: blocking it open if necessary.

Moving Your Refrigerator

Remove all the food.

Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.

Turn the front leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.

Tape the door shut.

Be sure the refrigerator stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect the outside of refrigerator with a blanket, or similar item.

Energy Saving Tips

The refrigerator should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances, and out of the direct sunlight.

Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator. Overloading the refrigerator forces the compressor to run longer.

Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on frost build-upinside the refrigerator.

Refrigerator storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator less efficient.

Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
