Important Safety Information

READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

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 refrigerator to extension cords or together with any other appliance in the same wall outlet. Do not splice the cord.

IMPORTANT WARNING!

An empty refrigerator is a very dangerous attraction to children. Remove the gasket, latches, lids or doors from unused appliances, or take some other action that will guarantee the appliance harmless.

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

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 refrigerator. Use nonflammable cleaner.

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

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

Installation Instructions

Remove exterior and interior packaging, wipe the outside thoroughly with a soft dry cloth and the inside with a wet, lukewarm cloth. Avoid placing the unit in a narrow recess or near any heat source, direct sunlight, or moisture. Let air circulate freely around the unit. Keep the rear of the refrigerator 5 inches away from the wall.

Location

1)Select a place with a level floor.

2)Allow 5 inches of space between the back of the refrigerator 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 damp places. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to form very quickly on the evaporator, and your refrigerator will have to be defrosted more frequently.

Operating Instructions

4

To avoid vibration, the unit must be set level. This is accomplished by adjusting the (1) front leveling leg located under the refrigerator. The temperature of the refrigerator is controlled by setting the thermostat knob to a desired setting.

Temperature Selection:

To start the refrigerator, turn the temperature control knob to the position corresponding to the desired cooling (on the graduated blue dial) in Fig. A. The refrigerator temperature will vary depending on the quantity of the food stored, and on the frequency with which the door is opened.

To turn the control to the OFF position, rotate the control knob to “0”. If the refrigerator is not being used for long periods, disconnect the plug and leave the door partially open. This will help to reduce mold and mildew from accumulating inside the refrigerator. Changes in ambient

room temperature will affect internal refrigerator temperatures (choose correct setting of the Fig. A thermostat knob).

Care and Maintenance

Defrosting

This refrigerator is equipped with a “Push Button”  (semi-automatic) defrost thermostat system. To

activate the defrost cycle, simply push (in) the red defrost button located in the center of the control knob/dial (do not turn the control knob/dial to zero/off). The defrost cycle is initiated immediately. When defrosting is complete, the “Push Button” will release (pop-out) automatically and resume normal operating conditions at the same temperature setting.

NOTE: If the “Push Button” is activated (pushed-in) accidentally, it will not be possible to “manually”

pull-out the push button (deactivate the defrost cycle). You must let the defrost cycle run its course.

Defrosting of your refrigerator should take place whenever ice build-up inside the freezer compartment reaches 1/4” (6mm) thick. Defrosting may take a few hours, depending on the amount of accumulated ice and ambient indoor temperature. To speed up the defrosting process, remove all frozen foods from the freezer section. Leaving the door partially ajar for a short period of time will also speed up the process. Important: You must remember to close the refrigerator door before the defrost cycle terminates and normal operating conditions resume automatically. The drip tray should be in position directly below the freezer compartment to catch

condensed water during defrosting.

Note: Never use sharp or pointed instruments to remove ice from the freezer compartment. The freezer compartment contains refrigerated gas lines and if accidentally punched/pierced, will render the refrigerator inoperable and void the manufacturers warranty.

DO NOT ALLOW THE REFRIGERATOR TO 

CONTINUE OPERATION IF THE FREEZER 

COMPARTMENT IS PIERCED.

After defrosting is complete, set the control to

maximum for 2 to 3 hours before returning to the desired position. When the refrigerator is not to be used for a long period of time, disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply and leave the door partially open. This will help to reduce mold and mildew build-up.

Note: Wait 3 to 5 minutes before

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 options are a mild soap suds solution, or mild detergent. Wash glass shelves in a mild detergent solution, then dry and wipe with a soft 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 refrigerator 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 odours.

Power Failure

Most power failures are corrected within an hour or two and will not affect your refrigerator 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 unit. To avoid damaging the leveling legs, turn them all the way into the base.

Some Important Rules for the Correct Use of the Refrigerator

Never place hot foods in the refrigerator.

Never place spoiled foods in the unit.

Don’t overload the unit.

Don’t open the door unless necessary.

Should the refrigerator be stored without use for long periods, it is suggested, after a careful cleaning, to leave the door ajar to allow the air to circulate inside the unit in order to avoid the possibility of condensation, mold or odours.
