IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
?WARNING? To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury when using your refrigerator, follow these basic precautions:
?Read all instructions before using the refrigerator.
?DANGER or WARNING: Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances are still dangerous . . . even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
?Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer: Take off the doors. Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
?Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the refrigerator.
?Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
?Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other refrigerator. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Before Using Your Refrigerator

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

OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Setting the Temperature Control
?To control the internal temperature, adjust the control dial according to the ambient temperature or purpose of use.
?The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to “5.”
?The range of the temperature control is from position "0” to “5”. After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “3” should be appropriate for home or office refrigerator use.
?If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the refrigerator will not start.
?Turning the temperature control to "0" position stops the cooling cycle but does not shut off the power to the appliance.

Cleaning Your Refrigerator

Moving Your Refrigerator

?Turn the leveling screw up to the base to avoid damage.
?Tape the door shut.

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
?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.
