IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

GROUNDING

This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding

INSTRUCTIONS

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 connected to 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 of 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.

IMPORTANT WARNING: 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 gaurantee it harmless.

DON’T WAIT! DO IT NOW!

INSTALLATION

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.

Location:

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.

OPERATION

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

1= Minimum Cooling

3, 4 = Medium Cooling

MAX= 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.

DEFROSTING

INSTRUCTIONS

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 of 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.

4)Remove frost.

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.”

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

CLEANING

To clean the inside, use a soft cloth and a mixture of one tablespoon of baking soda to one quart of water. Other cleaning solution options are a mild soap sud solution, or mild detergent. Wash glass shelves in a mild detergent solution, then wipe dry with a soft, clean cloth. Clean the outside with a soft damp cloth and some mild detergent or appliance cleaner.

VACATION

TIME

For short vacation periods, leave the control knob at its normal setting. During longer absences;

a)Remove all foods.

b)Disconnect power cord from electrical outlet.

c)Clean the freezer thoroughly, including drip tray (defrost pan), located on the bottom of the unit.

d)Leave door open to avoid possible formations of condensate, mold or odors.

POWER

FAILURE

Most power failures are corrected within an hour or two and will not affect your freezer temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off. During power failures of longer duration, take steps to protect your food by placing dry ice on top of packages, or wrapping packages in newspaper and covering them with a blanket.

IF YOU MOVE

Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the freezer. To avoid damaging the leveling legs, turn them all the way into the base.

SOME IMPORTANT RULES FOR THE CORRECT USE OF THE FREEZER:

Never place hot foods in the freezer.

Never place spoiled foods in the cabinet.

Don’t overload the cabinet.

Don’t open the door unless necessary.

Should the freezer be stored without use for long periods, it is suggested that, after a careful cleaning, you leave the door ajar to allow the air to circulate inside the cabinet in order to avoid possible formations of condensate, mold or odors.
