Safety
Electrical Information
You must follow these guidelines to ensure
that your refrigerator’s safety mechanisms are
operating correctly.
•
The refrigerator must be plugged into its own
dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC-only non-GFCI
electric outlet. The power cord of the appliance
is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for
your protection against electrical shock hazards. It
must be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle. The receptacle must
be installed in accordance with local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Do not
use an extension cord or adapter plug.
•
If the power cord is damaged, it should be
replaced by the manufacturer, service technician,
or a qualified person.
•
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and
pull straight out from the receptacle to prevent
damaging the power cord.
•
To avoid electrical shock, unplug the unit or switch
the breaker that supplies power to the unit to the
off position before cleaning and before replacing a
light bulb or LED light.
•
Performance may be affected if the voltage varies
by 10% or more. Operating the refrigerator with
insufficient power can damage the compressor.
Such damage is not covered under your warranty.
•
Do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled by a
wall switch or pull cord to prevent the refrigerator
from being turned off accidentally.
To disconnect power to the unit, unplug the unit or
switch the breaker that supplies power to the unit to
the off position.

Installation
Required Tools
You will need the following tools:
This Use & Care Guide provides general installation
and operating instructions for your model. We
recommend using a service or kitchen contracting
professional to install your refrigerator. Use the
refrigerator only as instructed in this Use & Care
Guide. Before starting the refrigerator, follow
these important first steps.
Installation
•
Allow the following clearances for ease of
installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing
and electrical connections:
Sides
3/8” inch (9.5 mm)
Top and Back 1 inch (25.4 mm)
•
Allow for trim kit if it to be installed with the unit.
Location
•
•
•
Choose a place that is near a grounded, nonGFCI, electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug.
If possible, place the refrigerator out of direct
sunlight and away from the range, dishwasher, or
other heat sources.
The refrigerator must be installed on a floor that is
level and strong enough to support a fully loaded
refrigerator.
The refrigerator doors are designed to shut by
themselves within a 20 degree opening.
Refrigerator
DO NOT install the refrigerator where the
temperature will drop below 40°F (13°C) or rise
above 110°F (43°C). The compressor will not be
able to maintain proper temperatures inside the
refrigerator.
DO NOT block the toe grille on the lower front
of your refrigerator. Sufficient air circulation
is essential for the proper operation of your
refrigerator.
If your refrigerator is placed with the door hinge
against a wall, you may have to allow additional
space so the door can be opened wider.

Installing Door Handle
Door Handle Mounting
Instructions
1. Remove handles from carton and any other
protective packaging.
2. Position fresh food handle end caps over upper
and lower preinstalled shoulder bolts (A) that are
fastened into door.
3. While holding handle firmly against door, fasten
upper and lower Allen set screws (B) with supplied
Allen wrench until there is no gap between handle
and door.
All set screws should be tightened so the screw is
below the surface of the handle. The handles should
be drawn tight to freezer and refrigerator doors with
no gaps. Opening the opposite door while tightening
the Allen screw makes installation easier.

Leveling
•
•
•
The refrigerator must have all bottom corners
resting firmly on a solid floor.
The floor must be strong enough to support a fully
loaded refrigerator.
It is VERY IMPORTANT for your refrigerator
to be level in order to function properly. If the
refrigerator is not leveled during installation,
the door may be misaligned and not close or
seal properly, causing cooling, frost or moisture
problems.

Leveling
To Level The Refrigerator:
While unit is lying on its back for wood skid removal,
note the location of the four (4) leg levelers installed
at each corner. These leg levelers will be used to
level the refrigerator and to adjust the height. Use a
carpenter’s level to level the refrigerator from front to
back and side to side.
Make sure to allow for the Trim and Leveling Kit if it is
to be installed with the unit.
•
•
Slide second unit into place leaving a minimum
gap of 3/16” between units for door swing
clearance.
This last step may require at least one extraction
of the second unit to properly align units in a
“built-in” application.
Leveling Door with Adjustable Hinge
Use the lower hinge adjustment to fine tune the door
height and for final cabinet spacing. Use a 7/16”
socket or wrench to adjust the screw at the bottom of
the lower hinge.

16 Storing Food & Saving Energy
Ideas For Storing Foods
Vacation And Moving Tips
Fresh Food Storage
Short Vacations:
•
Keep the fresh food compartment between 34° F
and 40° F with an optimum temperature of 37° F.
•
•
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves, which
reduces air circulation and causes uneven cooling.
Long Vacations:
Fruits and Vegetables
•
Store fruits and vegetables in crisper drawers,
where trapped moisture helps preserve food
quality for longer time periods.
Meat
•
Wrap raw meat and poultry securely so leakage
and contamination of other foods or surfaces does
not occur.
If the refrigerator will not be used for several months:
• Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
• Leave the refrigerator door open slightly, blocking
it open if necessary, to prevent odor and mold
growth.
Moving: When moving the refrigerator,
follow these guidelines to prevent damage:
•
•
Energy Saving Ideas
•
•
•
•
•
•
Locate the refrigerator in the coolest part of the
room, out of direct sunlight, and away from heating
ducts or registers. Do not place the refrigerator
next to heat-producing appliances such as a
range, oven, or dishwasher. If this is not possible,
a section of cabinetry or an added layer of
insulation between the two appliances will help the
refrigerator operate more efficiently.
Level refrigerator so that the door closes tightly.
Refer to the “SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
CONTROL” section for the suggested temperature
control settings.
Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold
air vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to run
longer and use more energy.
Cover foods and wipe containers dry before
placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on
moisture build-up inside the unit.
Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings.
Remove as many items as needed at one time
and close the door as soon as possible.
Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations
of less than three weeks.
•
•
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall
outlet.
Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the
refrigerator.
Secure all loose items such as base panel,
baskets, and shelves by taping them securely in
place to prevent damage.
In the moving vehicle, secure refrigerator in an
upright position to prevent movement. Also protect
outside of refrigerator with a blanket, or similar
item.
Care & Cleaning
Keep your refrigerator clean to prevent odor build-up.
Wipe up any spills immediately and clean at least
twice a year. Never use metallic scouring pads,
brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions
on any surface. Do not wash any removable parts in a
dishwasher. Always unplug the electrical power.
•
When moving the refrigerator, pull straight
out. Do not shift the refrigerator from side
to side as this may tear or gouge the floor
covering.
•
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do
not touch interior metal surfaces with wet or
damp hands.
Care & Cleaning 17
•
Turning the freezer temperature control to “OFF” (See Page 9) turns off the compressor, but does
not disconnect electrical power to the LED lights or other electrical components. Unplug the unit or
switch the breaker that supplies power to the unit to the off position.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface when
removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from tape or labels can be removed with a mixture of warm
water and mild detergent, or, touch the glue residue with the sticky side of tape you have already
removed. Do not remove the serial plate.
•
•
•
•
•
Do Not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids,
cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches, or cleansers containing petroleum products
on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets, or cabinet liners. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads
or other abrasive materials.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on any
surface.
Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
Always unplug the electrical power.
