IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

ELECTRICAL

REQUIREMENTS

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.

IMPORTANT WARNING!

An empty freezer is a very dangerous attraction to children. Remove either the gasket or lid from unused appliances, or take some other action that will guarantee it harmless.

DANGER: Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old freezer:

Take off the doors.

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb in.

DON’T WAIT! DO IT NOW!

WARNING! EXPLOSION HAZARD!

Risk of fire or explosion due to puncturing of refrigerant tubing. Do not use sharp objects to aid in defrost. Please handle with care. Keep flammable materials and vapors such as gasoline away from the freezer. Use nonflammable cleaner.

Disposal of this unit should be in accordance with federal and local regulations.

Please ensure that component parts shall be replaced with like components and that servicing shall be done by factory authorized service personnel, so as to minimize the risk of possible ignition due to incorrect parts or improper service.

GROUNDING

INSTRUCTIONS

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 service agent 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 115V 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.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

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.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

OPERATION

Changes in ambient room temperature will affect internal freezer temperatures (choose correct setting of the thermostat knob).

In STOP (0) position the appliance does not operate (cooling system is switched off), yet power supply is not interrupted.

Temperature in the freezer also depends on how often the door is opened.

DEFROSTING

INSTRUCTIONS

Defrost and clean your freezer when frost has built up to about 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)Remove frost.

4)Wipe water from walls and bottom of freezer with a towel or sponge.

5)Wash inside walls.

6)Rinse and dry thoroughly.

7)Replace all frozen food.

8)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 food.

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 condensation, 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.

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 food in the freezer.

Never place spoiled food 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 condensation, mold or odors.
