Clearances
Minimum clearances in inches to combustible materials are:
Top 4”
Side 1”
Rear 1”
Bottom The feet must be in place to
ensure free air circulation.
The room must be well ventilated and not used as a bedroom.
Further the room should have a window (which can be opened)
or a door to the outside.
For best performance also at high ambient temperatures there
must be a free air circulation over the cooling unit at the rear
of the refrigerator. Ensure that there is a free space of at least 4
inches (100 mm) above the refrigerator and that the ventilation
opening on the top of the cabinet is not covered in any way.
Do not place the refrigerator in a space where air circulation is
restricted. A clearance of at least 1-inch (25 mm) should be left
between the rear and sides of the refrigerator and the surrounding walls.
This freestanding refrigerator requires accessibility to the back
for servicing the gas equipment. If allowed by the Local Authorities, the accessibility can be obtained by using a certified
Flexible Metal Connector of Gas Hose Assembly, which would
allow the refrigerator to be withdrawn without disrupting the
gas supply. However, if the Local Authorities require a rigid
gas supply connector the refrigerator should be located with
sufficient space at the back for servicing or, if located against a
wall, a removable panel of a minimum size of 16” x 20” should
be provided in the wall to allow access to the rear of the refrigerator. The refrigerator must be adjusted to a vertical position
in both directions. Use the feet on the refrigerator to adjust its
position.

Refrigerator dimensions
Testing LP gas safety shutoff
Overall dimensions in inches and (mm):
The gas safety shutoff must be tested after the refrigerator is
connected to the LP gas supply.
To test the gas safety shutoff, proceed as follows:
1. Start the refrigerator according to the instructions for
Gas Operation; section “Operation Instructions”.
2. Check that the gas flame is lit. This can be observed
through the reflector (E).
. Close the gas valve by turning the knob (A) back to
“OFF” position.
. Wait for one minute.
5. Remove burner cover plate, one screw at the burner.
Open the gas valve by turning the knob (A) to position “GAS” without pushing the buttons (C) and
(D). Apply a non-corrosive commercial bubble solution to the burner jet.
6. No bubbles should appear at the opening of the
burner jet. The presence of bubbles indicates a defective gas safety shutoff, and service is required.
7. If no bubbles were present at the burner jet, the gas
safety valve is working properly. Rinse jet thorughly
with fresh water before proceeding. Be careful not to
damage the burner jet.
8. Replace the burner cover plate and turn the knob
(A) back to “OFF”.
9. Start the refrigerator by following the instructions
for Gas Operation, section “Operation Instructions”.
10. Normal operation of the burner should return. Allow
the burner to operate for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Height 63-15/32 (1612)
Width 23-5/16 (592)
Depth 24-1/2 (623)
Gas connection
Hook up to the gas supply line is accomplished at the manual
gas shutoff valve, which is furnished with a 3/8” SAE (UNF
5/8” -18) male flare connection. A backup wrench must be
used when tightening gas supply fitting. All completed connections should be checked for leaks with a noncorrosive leak
detector.
! WARNING
EXPLOSION HAZARD. Never use an open
flame to check for gas leaks. Failure to heed this
warning could cause an explosion resulting in
death or severe personal injury.
The gas supply system must incorporate a pressure regulator
to maintain a supply pressure of not more than 11 inches water
column.
When testing the gas supply system at test pressures in excess
of 1/2 psi, the refrigerator and its individual shutoff valve must
be disconnected from the gas supply piping system. When testing the gas supply system at pressures less than or equal to 1/2
psi, the appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve.
In case detailed instructions on the installation and connection
to the gas supply are required, contact your dealer or distributor.
Electrical connection
120 V AC Connection
The refrigerator is equipped with a three-prong (grounding)
plug for your protection against shock hazards and should be
plugged directly into a properly grounded threeprong receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this
plug. The cord should be routed to avoid direct contact with
the burner cover, flue cover or any other components that could
damage the cord insulation.
Refrigerator removal
Before working on the refrigerator, make sure the AC voltage
leads are disconnected. Shut off the gas supply. Disconnect the
gas supply line at the rear of the refrigerator. Always use a back
up wrench when loosening and tightening this connection. Cap
the gas supply line and remove the refrigerator. Replacement
is the reverse of removal. Check all connections for gas leaks.
operating instructions
Importance of leveling a
refrigerator
Gas operation
1. To start the refrigerator, turn the knob (A) to the
“GAS” position.
2. Turn the thermostat knob (B) to setting 4.
. Push button (C) in until it bottoms out - and hold.
While holding button (C), push button (D) for the
piezo igniter several times to light the burner. This
can be observed through the flame view port (E).
. After the flame lights, continue to hold the button
(C) for an additional ten (10) seconds. Release the
button (C) and check the flame view port (E) to
make sure the burner does not go out. If the burner
goes out, repeat the lighting procedure Steps 1
through 4.
5. To shut off the refrigerator, turn the knob (A) to the
“OFF” position.
In an absorption refrigerator system, ammonia is liquefied
in the finned condenser coil at the top rear of the refrigerator.
The liquid ammonia then flows into the evaporator (inside the
freezer section) and is exposed to a circulating flow of hydrogen gas, which causes the ammonia to evaporate, creating a
cold condition in the freezer.
When starting this refrigerator for the very first time, the cooling cycle may require up to four hours of running time before
the cooling unit is fully operational.
The tubing in the evaporator section is specifically sloped to
provide a continuous movement of liquid ammonia, flowing
downward by gravity through this section. If the refrigerator is
operated when it is not level, liquid ammonia will accumulate
in sections of the evaporator tubing. This will slow the circulation of hydrogen and ammonia gas, or in severe cases, completely block it, resulting in a loss of cooling.
The refrigerator must be adjusted to a vertical position in both
directions. Use the feet on the refrigerator to adjust its position.
NOTE: After changing an LP tank, or after a long shut off
period, the gas line is likely to be filled with air. You may have
to repeat the lighting procedure several times to purge the air
out of the gas lines.
Controls
Electric operation
1. Check to be sure that the power cord is properly connected to the power supply.
2. Turn knob (A) to the position marked “ELEC” for
120 volt AC operation.
. Turn the thermostat knob (B) to setting 4.
. To shut off the refrigerator, turn the knob (A) to the
“OFF” position.
The refrigerator can be run on either 120 volt AC or LP gas.
Changing between these modes of operation is carried out by
means of control buttons positioned as shown in the figure.
Thermostat
The refrigerator is equipped with a thermostat that can be
adjusted by turning knob (B) to different setting to maintain the
desired cabinet temperature.
• “OFF” Setting of the Thermostat: In gas operation, the
thermostat closes its main valve and the burner runs continuously at the bypass rate or pilot. In electric operation, the
contacts in the thermostat are open and the heating element
is off.
• “MAX” Setting of the Thermostat: In gas operation, the
thermostat allows the burner to remain on high flame continuously. In electric operation, the heating element is “ON”
continuously.
• The thermostat can be adjusted between “MAX” and
“OFF” to obtain the desired cabinet temperature. The closer
the knob is to “MAX”, the colder the cabinet temperature.
The closer the knob is to “OFF”, the warmer the cabinet
temperature.
The energy selector (A) can be set at “ELEC” (120 volt AC),
“GAS” (LP gas) or “OFF”. The refrigerator temperature is
controlled by a thermostat (B). Please note that the thermostat
has no “off” position.
The refrigerator is fitted with a safety device, which automatically shuts off the supply of gas if the flame goes out. The
safety device can be opened manually by depressing knob (C).
The piezoelectric igniter discharges sparks over the burner
when the button (D) is pushed. In the flame viewer (E) you can
see a blue light when the flame is alight.
When the thermostat reaches the set temperature, it will cut the
burner back to bypass or, in electric operation, shut off the heating element. The setting of the thermostat is not critical, but we
recommend it be adjusted to maintain a dry frost on the cooling
fins. Adjust the thermostat knob closer to “MAX” when the
outside temperature becomes warm.
operating instructions
How to use the refrigerator
Defrosting
Frost will gradually accumulate on the refrigerating surfaces.
It must not be allowed to grow too thick as it acts as an insulator and adversely affects refrigerator performance. Check the
formation of frost regularly every week and when it gets about
1/8” (3 mm) thick, defrost the refrigerator.
! WARNING
EXPLOSION HAZARD. Never store explosive
substances in the refrigerator, such as cigarette
lighter fuel, gasoline, ether or the like. Failure
to heed this warning could cause an explosion
resulting in death or severe personal injury.
CAUTION
Do not use:
• A knife or an ice pick, or other sharp tools to
remove frost from the freezer shelves. It can
create a leak in the ammonia system
• A hot air blower. Permanent damage could
result from warping the metal or plastic parts.
Total refrigerator volume: 8 cu.ft.
Food storage compartment
The food storage compartment is completely closed and unventilated, which is necessary to maintain the required low temperature for food storage. Consequently, foods having a strong
odor or those that absorb odors easily should be covered. Vegetables, salads etc. should be covered to retain their crispness.
The coldest positions in the refrigerator are under the cooling
fins and at the bottom of the refrigerator. The warmer areas are
on the upper door shelves. This should be considered when
placing different types of food in the refrigerator.
Shut off the refrigerator by turning knob (A) to “OFF” position. Empty the refrigerator, leaving the cabinet and freezer
doors open. Filling the ice tray with hot water and placing it in
the freezer compartment can reduce defrosting time.
The defrost water runs from a collector channel to a drip tray/
cup at the rear of the refrigerator where it normally evaporates.
If heavy frost built up on the freezer plate and the cooling fins,
and a lot of defrost water, move the plastic drain tube in to a
watertight bucket or container.
As the frost melts, the water will flow into the container. When
all the frost has melted wipe up the excess moisture and empty
the accumulated water from the bucket. Replace the drain tube
to its original position. Defrost water in the freezer compartment should be wiped up with a clean cloth.
When all the frost is melted, dry the interior of the refrigerator
with a clean cloth. Replace all food and set the thermostat to
“MAX” for a few hours. Then reset the thermostat to its normal
position.
Frozen food storage compartment
Quick frozen soft fruits and ice cream should be placed in the
coldest part of the compartment, which is at the bottom of the
aluminum liner. Frozen vegetables, may be stored in any part of
the compartment. This compartment is not designed for deep or
quickfreezing of food. Meat or fish, whether raw or prepared,
can be stored in the frozen food storage compartment provided
they are precooled first in the refrigerator. They can be stored
about three times longer in the frozen food compartment as
compared to the fresh food compartment. To prevent food from
drying out, keep it in covered dishes, containers, plastic bags or
wrapped in aluminum foil.
Ice making
Cleaning
Ice cubes can be made in the ice tray placed in the freezer
compartment. The tray should be filled with water to within
1/4” (5 mm) from the top.
For faster ice making, the tray should be placed in direct
contact with the bottom of the freezer compartment. To release
the ice cubes seize the tray with both hands and twist the tray.
Cubes not required should be replaced in the tray. Refill the
tray with water and replace the tray in the freezer compartment.
Ice will be made more rapidly if the thermostat is set at its
highest position. It is a good idea to do this a few hours before
the anticipated need for ice, but be sure to turn the thermostat
back to normal setting, usually about mid-setting when the ice
is formed. Food in the lower compartment may be frozen if the
refrigerator is left on “MAX” position.
Cleaning the refrigerator is usually done after it is defrosted
or put into storage. To clean the interior liner of the refrigerator, use lukewarm weak soda solution. Use only warm water
to clean the finned evaporator, gasket, ice trays and shelves.
NEVER use strong chemicals or abrasives to clean these
parts, as the protective surfaces will be damaged. It is important to always keep the refrigerator clean.

maintenance & service
The user should be aware of service that must be done on a regular schedule to keep the refrigerator operating properly.
A qualified technician who is familiar with LP gas systems and refrigerators should only perform the service.
Periodic maintenance
Check all connections in the LP gas system
Check all connections in the LP gas system (at the back of the
refrigerator) for gas leaks. The LP gas supply must be turned
on. Apply a non-corrosive bubble solution to all LP gas connections. The appearance of bubbles indicates a leak and should
be repaired immediately by a qualified serviceman who is
familiar with gas system and refrigerators.
To keep your refrigerator operating efficiently and safely, periodic inspection and cleaning of several components is recommended once or twice a year.
It is important to keep the area at the back of the refrigerator
clean. Clean the coils on the back of the refrigerator. Use a soft
bristled brush to dust off the coils. It is important to keep the
refrigerator area free from combustible material, gasoline and
other flammable vapors or liquids.
! WARNING
The following maintenance is required once or twice a year, but
should only be done by a qualified serviceman who is familiar
with LP gas systems and refrigerators.
EXPLOSION HAZARD. Never use an open
flame to check for gas leaks. Failure to heed this
warning could cause an explosion resulting in
death or severe personal injury.
