Read all instructions before using this freezer.

For your safety

Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this unit or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.

Child Safety

Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after the freezer is unpacked.Children should never use these items for play. Cartons covered with rugs,bedspreads,plasticsheetsorstretchwrapmaybecome airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation.

A child might suffocate if he crawls into the freezer to hide or play. Remove the door/lid of the freezer when not in use, even if you plan to discard the freezer. Many communities have laws requiring you to take this safety precaution.

Remove or discard any spacers used to secure the shelves during shipping. Small objects are a choke hazard to children.

Risk of Child Entrapment

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators or freezers are still dangerous – even if they will sit for “just a few days”. If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents:

Remove the door/lid. If your door has electronic controls, have it removed by a qualified technician.

Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.

Have the refrigerant removed by a qualified technician.

WARNING Electrical Information

These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety mechanisms in the design of this freezer will operate properly.

Refer to the serialplate for correct electrical rating.

The power cord of the appiiance is equipped with a three prong plug for your protection against shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a properly groundedthree prong receptacle, protected with a 15 amp timedelay fuse or circuit breaker. The receptacle must be installed in accordance with local codes and ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician.

Receptacles protected by Ground Fault Interrupters (GFI) are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT USE AN

EXTENSION CORD OR ADAPTER PLUG.

If voltage varies by 10% or more, freezer performance may be affected. Operating freezer with insufficient power can damage the motor. Such damage is

not covered under the warranty. If you suspect your household voltage is high or low, consult your power company for testing.

To prevent the freezer from being turned off accidentically, do not plug unit into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord.

Do not pinch, knot, or bend the cord in any manner.

Other Precautions

To defrost freezer, always unplug unit first.

Never unplug the freezer by pulling on the cord.

Always grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out from the receptacle.

Turning the temperature control to OFF turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other electrical components.

Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug. Do not remove any prong from the power cord.

Grounding type wall receptacle

Do not, under any circumstances,

cut, remove, or bypass the

grounding prong.

FIRST STEPS

This Owner’s Guide provides specific operating instructions for your model. Use the freezer only as instructed in this Owner’s Guide. Before starting the freezer, follow these important first steps.

Installation

Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

For the most efficient operation, the freezer should be located where surrounding temperatures will not exceed 110°F (43°C).Temperatures of 32°F (0°C) and below will NOT affect freezer operation. Additional compressor heaters are not recommended.

Allow space around the unit for good air circulation.

Leave a 3 inch (75 mm) space on all sides of the freezer for adequate circulation.

NOTE: The exterior walls of the freezer may become quite warm as the compressor works to transfer heat from the inside. Temperatures as much as 30° F warmer than room temperature can be expected. For this reason it is particularly important in hotter climates to allow enough space for air circulation around your freezer.

Leveling

The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support a fully loaded freezer. NOTE: It isVery Important for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be

misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.

To Level Upright Models:

After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter’s level to level the freezer from front-to-back.Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, ½ bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open.

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

Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the

freezer. Overloading the freezer 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 freezer. This cuts down on frost build-upinside the freezer.

Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the freezer 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.

SETTING THE temperature CONTROL

Cool Down Period

For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for the freezer to cool down completely. The freezer will run continuously for the first several hours. Foods that are already frozen may be placed in the freezer after the first few hours of operation. Unfrozen foods should NOT be loaded into the freezer until the freezer has operated for 4 hours.

When loading the freezer, freeze only 3 pounds of fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at one time. Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the freezer. It is not necessary to turn the control knob to a colder setting while freezing food.

This basket helps organize odd-shapeditems. To reach other packages in the freezer, slide the basket aside, or lift out.

Slide-AsideBasket

Fast Freezing Shelves (Manual Defrost Upright Models)

These shelves contain cooling coils to freeze foods quickly and allow cold air to constantly circulate throughout the freezer. Do not use sharp metal objects such as ice picks or scrapers to clean the shelves. This could damage the shelves and reduce their cooling ability. These shelves are not adjustable.

Tilt-OutShelf (Some Upright Models)

This shelf is located inside on the freezer door and provides additional storage space. To access an item, tilt the top of the “basket” shelf down.

Tilt-OutShelf

ADJUSTABLE DOOR BINS (SOME upright models)

Adjustable door bins are located inside on the freezer door and provide flexible storage space. The number of bins provided varies by model.

soft freeze zone (SOME upright models)

Soft Freeze Zone is specifically designed to maintain a higher temperature than the rest of the freezer to store products such as ice cream.

Pizza Shelf (Some Upright Models)

Here is the place to store up to four extra-largeboxes of frozen pizza without ever having to dig them out from beneath a pile of other stored goods.

The pizza shelf can be retracted to provide space for larger items on the shelf below, and still store up to two more pizzas.

surfaces. Do not touch interior metal surfaces with wet or damp hands.

Freezer must be unplugged (to avoid electrical hazard) from power source when defrosting unit.

Some upright freezers are frost-freeand defrost automatically, but should be cleaned occasionally.

Between Defrostings

To avoid frequent defrosting, occasionally use a plastic scraper to remove frost. Scrape with a pulling motion. Never use a metal instrument to remove frost.

Chest Divider (Some Chest Models)

Use these clever dividers to custom-arrangea variety ofdifferent-sizedstorage bins in the bottom of your chest freezer. Use thepeel-n-sticklabels found in your literature packet to help remind you which items are stored where. If you have

an item that isn’t already covered by one of the pre-printedlabels then use one of the blank labels and a permanent marking pen to make your own custom label. Labels can be peeled off when no longer needed and replaced by new and different ones.

Defrosting

It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when ¼ to

½ inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on the upper part of the freezer due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened. Remove food and leave the door open when defrosting the freezer.

To Defrost Upright Models with Defrost Drain:

·Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by pulling it straight out.

·To access external drain tube on models with a base panel, first remove the two screws from the base panel. Locate the drain tube near the left center under the freezer.

·Place a shallow pan under the drain tube. Defrost water will drain out. Check the pan occasionally so water does not overflow (see figure 1).

·A ½ inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the freezer directly into a floor drain.If your model is not equipped with an adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware stores.

·Replace the drain plug when defrosting and cleaning are completed. If the drain is left open, warm air may enter the freezer.
