Drip Tray – Model RM241B - ONLY

2 Refrigerator shelves

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.

Installation of Your Refrigerator

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

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 legs at the front of the refrigerator.

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

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.
