SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

DANGER: Risk of fire or explosion. Flammable refrigerant used. Do not puncture refrigerant tubing.

Do not use mechanical devices to defrost refrigerator.

Ensure that servicing is done by factory authorized service personnel, to minimize product damage or safety issues.

WARNING: Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.

WARNING: Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting process, other than those recommended by the manufacturer.

WARNING: Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.

WARNING: Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.

CAUTION: Risk of fire or explosion. Flammable refrigerant used.

Consult repair manual or owner’s guide before attempting to service this product. All safety precautions must be followed.

Dispose of properly in accordance with federal or local regulations.

Follow handling instructions carefully.

CAUTION: Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

DANGER: Risk of child entrapment. Before throwing away an old appliance:

Remove the door or lid.

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

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities may be different or reduced, or who lack experience or knowledge, unless such persons receive supervision or training to operate the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. Grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing an escape wire for the electrical current.

This appliance has a cord that has a grounding wire with a 3-prong plug. The power cord must be plugged into an outlet that is properly grounded. If the outlet is a 2-prong wall outlet, it must be replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. The serial rating plate indicates the voltage and frequency the appliance is designed for.

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 connect your appliance to extension cords or together with another appliance in the same wall outlet. Do not splice the power cord. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord. Do not use extension cords or ungrounded (two prongs) adapters.

If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similar qualified person in order to avoid hazard.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

 

LOCATION

 

FEATURES

Two people should be used when moving the appliance.

Remove interior and exterior packaging prior to installation. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a soft, dry cloth and the inside with a lukewarm wet cloth.

Place the appliance on a fl oor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded.

Do not place the appliance in direct sunlight or near sources of heat, such as a stove or heater, as this can increase electrical consumption.

Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the appliance to perform improperly.

Do not use the appliance near water, for example, in a wet basement or near a sink.

This appliance is intended for indoor household use only. It is not designed for outside installation, including anywhere that is not temperature controlled (garages, porches, vehicles, etc.).

Before connecting the appliance to a power source, let it stand upright for approximately 6 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a

malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.

This appliance is 52.6 cm (20.7 inches) wide by 83.1 cm (32.7 inches) high by 57.1 cm (22.5 inches) deep. Make sure that you leave the minimum amount of space between the appliance and all surrounding walls and vents.

Allow 12.7 cm (5 inches) of space between the back, sides and top of the appliance and all adjacent walls.

This appliance is intended for free-standing installation only and is not intended to be built into a cabinet or counter. Building in this appliance can cause it to malfunction.

IMPORTANT NOTE

The freezer door may be difficult to open immediately after closing it. This is normal and is due to the pressure difference between the cold interior of the freezer and the warm air that has just entered the freezer when the door was opened. The pressure will equalize within a few minutes.

If the door is especially difficult to open, wait 5 minutes to allow the pressure to equalize and then try again.

LEVELING INSTRUCTIONS

There is an adjustable foot on the bottom of the appliance that can be turned up or down to ensure that the appliance is level.

1.Turn the adjustable foot counter-clockwise until the top of the foot is touching the bottom of the cabinet.

2.Slowly turn the adjustable foot clockwise until the appliance is level.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

CLEANING

POWER FAILURE

Ensure the appliance is unplugged before cleaning.

To clean the inside of the appliance, use a soft cloth and a solution of a tablespoon of baking soda to one quart of water or a mild soap solution or some mild detergent.

Clean the outside with a soft, damp cloth and some mild detergent.

It is important to keep the area where the door seals against the cabinet clean to ensure a tight seal. Clean this area with a soapy cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth and let dry.

Note: Do not use cleaners containing ammonia or alcohol on the appliance. Ammonia or alcohol can damage the appearance of the appliance. Never use any commercial or abrasive cleaners or sharp objects on any part of the appliance.

DEFROSTING

This appliance should be defrosted approximately twice a year or when a 6 mm (1/4 inch) layer of frost has formed on the shelves.

1.Turn the thermostat dial to the “0” position and unplug the power cord.

2.Remove all contents and leave the door open.

3.As the frost melts, water will collect in the drip tray in the bottom of the appliance.

4.Check the appliance frequently while defrosting to ensure that water does not leak and cause damage to fl ooring.

5.The drip tray can be removed and emptied as necessary.

6.When all frost has melted, wipe the interior of the appliance with a towel or sponge to ensure it is completely dry before resuming operation.

7.Plug the appliance in, turn the thermostat dial to the desired setting and replace all contents once the appliance has reached the desired temperature.

Important: Do not use pointed or sharp objects to remove frost as this can damage the refrigerant lines. If these lines are accidentally pierced it will render the freezer inoperable and will void the manufactuer’s warranty.

Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, take the proper steps to protect your contents.

Note: Wait 3 to 5 minutes before attempting to restart the refrigerator if operation has been interrupted.

VACATION

Short vacations: Leave the appliance operating during vacations of less than three weeks.

Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all items and turn off the appliance. Defrost, clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door open slightly, blocking it open if necessary.

MOVING

Remove all items.

Tape the door shut.

Be sure the appliance stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect the outside of the appliance with a blanket or similar item.

If the appliance is placed on its back or side during transportation, upon reaching the destination, allow it to remain in its operating position for 6 hours to avoid damage to internal components.

DISPOSAL

This appliance may not be treated as regular household waste, it should be taken to the appropriate waste collection point for recycling of electrical components. For information on local waste collection points, contact your local waste removal agency or government office. Disposal of

this appliance should be in accordance with federal and local regulations.
