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 115V 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.

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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

Installation

Instructions

Bottom of Unit

Use pliers or wrench to adjust the leveling legs

Leveling Legs

Turn counterclockwise to raise the unit.

Turn clockwise

to lower the unit

Fig.1.

Remove exterior and interior packing, 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 2 inches away from the wall.

LOCATION

1)Select a place with a strong, level floor.

2)Allow 2 inches of space between the refrigerator and any adjacent wall.

3)Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating on the refrigerator exterior. Heat sources nearby will cause higher electricity consumption.

The refrigerating system in this refrigerator is a “Frost Free” system. This type of system requires no user intervention (i.e. defrosting) other than selecting required cooling temperatures and the usual care and maintenance.

To avoid vibration, the unit must be set level. This is accomplished by adjusting the (2) front leveling legs, located under the refrigerator. (Fig 1)

Installation Instructions

NOTES:

This appliance is intended for FREE-STANDING INSTALLATION ONLY, and is NOT intended to be built-in.

Before connecting this appliance to electrical power supply, leave it to stand for approx. 24 hours, which will reduce the possibility of malfunction in the cooling system due to transport handling.

This appliance is approved for INDOOR USE ONLY and is NOT intended for outdoor operation.

IMPORTANT

Install this appliance in an area where the ambient temperature is between 55°F (13°C) and 90°F (32°C). If the temperature around the appliance is too low or high, cooling ability may be affected.

FREEZER

Do not place food near or around the vents or air duct

Fig.3.

REFRIGERATOR TEMPERATURE CONTROL

There is a digital temperature display panel in the REFRIGERATOR compartment (see Fig.2.). The digits on the upper line are in degrees Celsius, while the bottom digits are in degrees Fahrenheit.

Press the “-” sign or ”+” sign to reach the desired temperature.

The first time you turn the unit on, please select 2°C/36°F and let the unit run for at least 2 hours before putting food inside. This will ensure the refrigerator compartment is thoroughly chilled before food is put in. The recommended factory setting is 4°C / 39°F.

NOTE:

If the unit is unplugged, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit (plugging the unit back in). If you attempt to restart before 3 to 5 minutes, the refrigerator will not start.

If the power goes out, the unit should restart itself when the power comes back on.

Large amounts of food will lower the cooling efficiency of the appliance.

Do not place food so that it blocks an air vent, and leave adequate space between food items for air flow in the cabinet (see Fig.3.)

Allow several hours for temperature to stabilize between two temperature selections.

Selecting different temperatures on the refrigerator digital temperature display, will affect the temperature in BOTH the fridge and the freezer compartments.

OPERATING FREEZER COMPARTMENT

Fig.4.

Freezer Temperature Control

FREEZER TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Your refrigerator has one vent control for regulating the temperature in the freezer compartment (see Fig.4.). The temperature control is located on the center of the freezer compartment’s interior back panel.

The first time you turn the unit on, adjust the temperature control knob to “MAX” and let the unit run for at least 2 hours before putting food inside. This will ensure that the freezer cabinet is thoroughly chilled before food is put in.

The FREEZER temperature control ranges from "MIN" (the warmest) to "MAX" (the coldest). Adjust this control to get the desired temperature. The recommended factory setting is MEDIUM (half way between “MIN” and “MAX”).

THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT

This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food.

Storage time period is up to three months.

The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded.

Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.

If there are instructions on the package, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.

Care and Maintenance

COOLING SYSTEM

This refrigerator is equipped with a “Frost Free” type cooling system, which means you never have to defrost the freezer compartment. Defrosting is done automatically by means of a defrost heating element and a defrost timer factory-programmed to operate (cycle) approximately every 8 hours. The defrost water is routed into a defrost pan located directly above the compressor, where it then evaporates.

CLEANING

Before cleaning the refrigerator or freezer, always disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply. To clean the inside, use a soft cloth and a solution of a tablespoon baking soda to one quart (4 cups) of water, or a mild soap suds solution or mild detergent. Wash ice cube tray, drip tray, and glide out shelves in a mild detergent solution, then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Clean the outside with a damp soft cloth and some mild detergent or appliance cleaner.

VACATION TIME

For short vacation periods, leave the control knob at the usual setting. During longer absences:

a)remove all food.

b)disconnect from electrical outlet.

c) leave the 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 refrigerator temperatures. However, you should minimize the number times you open the door 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 refrigerator. 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.

Beverages should be stored in sealed containers.

Foods to be stored for a long time should be wrapped in cellophane or polyethylene, or kept in glass containers. Never place spoiled food in the refrigerator.

Don’t overload the refrigerator.

Don’t open the door unless necessary.

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

VEGETABLE CRISPER

The tray at the bottom of the refrigerator is covered to retain moisture. The crisper compartment will enable you to store vegetables and fruits which would otherwise dry out rapidly.
