This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing an escape wire for the electrical current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
Use an exclusive wall outlet. Do not connect your freezer to extension cords or together with any other appliance in the same wall outlet. Do not splice the cord.
An empty freezer is a very dangerous attraction to children. Remove either the gasket, latches, lids or doors from unused appliances, or take some other action that will guarantee it harmless.
DON’T WAIT! DO IT NOW!
Remove exterior and interior packings, wipe the outside thoroughly with a soft dry cloth and the inside with a wet, lukewarm cloth. Avoid placing the cabinet in a narrow recess or near any heat source, direct sunlight, or moisture. Let air circulate freely around the cabinet. Keep the rear of the freezer 5 inches away from the wall.
1.Select a place with a strong, level floor.
2.Allow 5 inches of space between the back of the freezer and any adjacent wall.
3.Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating. Heat sources nearby will cause higher electricity consumption.
4.Avoid very moist places. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to form very quickly on the evaporator, and your freezer will have to be defrosted more frequently.
To avoid vibration, the cabinet must be set level. This is accomplished by adjusting the (2) front leveling legs located under the freezer cabinet. To start the freezer, turn the temperature control to the position corresponding to the desired cooling.
0 = No Cooling
3, 4 = Medium Cooling
1 = Minimum Cooling
7 = Maximum Cooling
The freezer temperature will vary depending on the quantity of the food stored and on the frequency with which the door is opened.
Defrost and clean your freezer when frost has built up to about 1 1/4” (6mm) thickness. Complete defrosting and cleaning should be done at least once a year. In high humidity areas, a freezer may need more frequent defrosting and cleaning.
IMPORTANT: Do not use an ice pick, knife or other sharp-pointed tool to defrost freezer. Damage can occur.
1.Turn temperature control to ‘0’ (off) and unplug power cord.
2.Remove all frozen food. Wrap frozen food in several layers or newspaper and cover with a blanket. Food will say frozen for several hours OR store frozen food in a cooler, additional refrigerator-freezer or in a cool area.
3.Place pans of hot water in freezer with door open to speed melting. Directing air from an electric fan into freezer will also help.
Do not place fan in freezer.
5.Wipe water from walls and bottom of freezer with a towel or sponge.
6.Wash inside walls.
7.Rinse and dry thoroughly.
8.Replace all frozen food.
9.Plug in power cord and refer to “Operation.”
1.THERMOSTAT DIAL: For controlling the temperature inside the freezer. Turns the motor on as soon as the temperature rises above the desired level.
2.REFRIGERATED SHELVES: 2 full width refrigerated shelves.
3.MAGNETIC GASKET: Tight fitting door seal keeps all the cooling power locked inside. No hooks or latches.
4.DOOR BINS (3)
