INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Unpacking

WARNING

Excessive Weight Hazard

Use two or more people to move and install freezer. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

Remove Packaging Materials

Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the freezer. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.

Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your freezer. For more information, see “Freezer Safety.”

When Moving Your Freezer:

Your freezer is heavy. When moving the freezer for

cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull the freezer straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the freezer when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur.

Clean Before Using

After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your freezer before using it. See the cleaning instructions in “Freezer Care.”

Important information to know about glass shelves and covers:

Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping. Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid dropping.

Location Requirements

WARNING

Explosion Hazard

Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from freezer.

Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.

IMPORTANT: Check the strength of the floor before installing your freezer. It should hold the weight of a freezer fully loaded with food.

Ventilation and Clearance

Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from freezer.

Do not cover the freezer with items such as blankets, sheets, tablecloths, etc. This reduces air circulation.

Allow at least a 3" (7.5 cm) clearance on both sides of the freezer and 2" (5 cm) between the back of the freezer and the wall. Leave room above the freezer to open the lid.

2" (5 cm)

3" (7.5 cm)

Temperature

Your freezer operates most efficiently when located in an area where the temperature is normally between 32°F (0°C) and 110°F (43°C). Do not install the freezer near an oven, radiator, or other heat source.

Upon Moving to Final Location

1.Level the freezer from side to side and front to back so that the lid will seal properly. Use shims to level the freezer if necessary.

NOTE: It should not be necessary to remove the lid during installation. If, for any reason, the hinges need adjustment, contact a designated service company.

Electrical Requirements

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an extension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.

Before you move your freezer into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.

Recommended Grounding Method

A 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, 15-amp fused and grounded (earthed) electrical supply is required.

It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your freezer be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension cord.

NOTE: Before performing any type of installation or cleaning, turn the Temperature Control to the OFF position as shown and then

disconnect the freezer from the electrical source.

NOTE: To turn off the freezer requires moving the knob to the OFF position, place a coin on the knob carefully, and turn it down to the OFF position. (Please see the picture below).

FREEZER USE

Using the Control

Turn the freezer temperature control to 3. This setting is designed to maintain the temperature at or near 0°F (-17.8°C) under normal operating conditions.

IMPORTANT: Allow the freezer to cool 6 to 8 hours before filling with frozen food. Let the freezer cool overnight before adding large amounts of unfrozen food. Do not add more than 2 to 3 lbs (0.907 to 1.360 kg) of unfrozen food per cubic foot of freezer space.

NOTES:

When the freezer is first started, the compressor will run constantly until the interior is cooled. It may take 6 to 8 hours (or longer), depending on location, room temperature, and the number of times the freezer lid is opened.

After the cabinet is cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to keep the freezer at the proper temperature.

Each time the lid is opened, cold air escapes and the temperature inside the freezer rises.

The outside of your freezer may feel warm. This is normal. The freezer’s design and main function is to remove heat from the contents and air inside the freezer. The heat is transferred to the room air, making the outside of the freezer feel warm.

Adjusting the Control

Turn control to a higher number for colder temperatures. Turn control to a lower number for less cold temperatures.
