SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

WARNING: Read all of the instructions before using this appliance. When using this appliance, always exercise basic safety precautions, including the following:

NOTE: If the refrigerator/freezer has been placed in a horizontal or tilted position for any period of time wait 24 hours before plugging the unit in.

1)Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this use and care guide.

2)This refrigerator/freezer must be properly installed in accordance with the installation instructions before it is used. See grounding instructions in the installation section.

3)This refrigerator/freezer should not be recessed or built-in an enclosed cabinet. It is designed for freestanding installation only.

4)Never unplug your refrigerator/freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grasp the plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.

5)Repair or replace immediately, all electric service cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length, the plug or the connector end.

6)If your old refrigerator/freezer is not being used, we recommend that you remove the doors. This will reduce the possibility of danger to children.

7)WARNING: After your refrigerator/freezer is in operation, do not

touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment, particularly when hands are damp or wet. Skin may adhere to these extremely cold surfaces.

8)Do not refreeze foods, which have been thawed completely. The United States Department of Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 reads: "…You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if they still contain ice crystals or if they are still cold-below 40°F".

"…Thawed ground meats, poultry, or fish that have any off-odor or offcolor should not be refrozen and should not be eaten. Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If the odor or color of any food is poor or questionable, discard it. The food may be dangerous to eat."

English

"…Even partial thawing and re-freezing reduce the eating quality of foods, particularly fruits, vegetables, and prepared foods. The eating quality of red meats is affected less than that of many other foods. Use refrozen foods as soon as possible, to save as much of they’re

eating quality as you can."

9)Do not use any electrical device or any sharp instrument in defrosting your refrigerator.

10)Unplug your refrigerator/freezer before cleaning or before making any repairs.

Note: If for any reason this product requires service, we strongly recommend that a certified technician perform service.

11)Do not operate your refrigerator in the presence of explosive fumes.

Installing Your Refrigerator

Unpacking Your Refrigerator

1.Remove all packaging material. This includes the foam base and all adhesive tape holding the refrigerator accessories inside and outside.

2.Inspect and remove any remains of packing, tape or printed materials before powering on the refrigerator.

Leveling Your Refrigerator

Your refrigerator has two leveling legs which are located in the front bottom corners of your refrigerator. After properly placing your

refrigerator in its final position, you can level your refrigerator.

Leveling legs can be adjusted by turning them counterclockwise to raise your refrigerator or by turning them clockwise to lower your refrigerator. The refrigerator door will close easier when the leveling legs are extended.

Proper Air Circulation

To ensure your refrigerator works at the maximum efficiency it was designed for, you should install it in a location where there is proper air circulation, plumbing and electrical connections.

The following are recommended clearances around the refrigerator:

Sides……………3/4" (19mm) Top....................2" (50mm) Back..................2" (50mm)

WARNING: ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT - SHOCK HAZARD

Electrical Requirement

Make sure there is a suitable power outlet (120 volts, 15 amps outlet) with proper grounding to power the refrigerator.

Avoid the use of three prong adapters or cutting off the third grounding prong in order to accommodate a two prong outlet. This is a dangerous practice since it provides no effective grounding for the refrigerator and may result in shock hazard.

WARNING: USE OF EXTENSION CORDSPOTENTIAL SAFETY HAZARD

Use of Extension Cords

Avoid the use of an extension cord because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot outlet that will accept the plug. The marked rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the appliance. DO NOT USE EXTENSION

CORD LONGER THAN 12 FT.
