Before Using Your Appliance
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
Refrigerator Section
Freezer Section
2 – Shelves
1 – Shelf
1 – Crisper
1 – Rotary Ice Maker Mechanism
1 – Glass Crisper Lid
2 – Door Bins
1 – Can Dispenser Rack
2 – Door Bins
• Before connecting the unit to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours.
This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during
transportation.
• Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
¾
Installation of Your Appliance
• Place your refrigerator-freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support the refrigeratorfreezer when it is fully loaded. To level your refrigerator-freezer, adjust the leveling legs at the
bottom of unit.
• Allow 2 inches of space between the back and sides of the unit, which allows the proper air
circulation to cool the compressor and condenser.
• Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.).
Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical
consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the refrigerator- freezer not
to perform properly.
• Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
• Plug the unit into an exclusive properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any
circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions
concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an
authorized Avanti Products service center.

Electrical Connection
aWarninga
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.
This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit is equipped with a
three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of
electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For
personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This unit requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground. Have
the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the unit and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental
injury.
The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that
matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent
overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the unit
by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or
replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord
that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the unit, be
careful not to damage the power cord.
¾ Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this unit. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely
necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a
grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10
amperes.
¾ Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This refrigerator-freezer has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit
is delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening
direction, please call service for reversal instructions.

Freezing Fresh Foods
Proper use of the appliance, adequately packed food, correct temperature and taking into account
hygienic precautions will substantially influence the quality of freezing the food or storing of the
frozen foods.
This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food.
The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded.
Pre-packed commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen foods
manufacturer’s instructions for a three star frozen food storage compartment or home freezer.
Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are instructions on
the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.
Carefully select food you intend to freeze, it should be of adequate quality and suitable for freezing.
Use correct packaging and wrap it tight.
The packaging should be airtight and shouldn’t leak since this could cause substantial vitamin loss
and dehydration of foods.
Foils and bags should be soft enough to tightly wrap around the foods.
When preparing foods to be frozen, consider sanitary precautions.
Mark packages with following data: kind and amount of foods and the date of loading.
It is most Important that the food is frozen as quickly as possible.
If the loading amount is too large, the quality of freezing is reduced which affects the quality of
frozen foods.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
¾
•
•
•
•
Cleaning Your Appliance
Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the unit, and remove the food and baskets.
Wash the inside with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2
tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
Wash the baskets with a mild detergent solution.
The outside of the unit should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
CAUTION
Failure to unplug the refrigerator-freezer could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
¾ Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your
refrigerator-freezer if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be
off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your food.
¾ Vacation Time
Short vacations: Leave the unit operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug the
power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door

Energy Saving Tips
The unit should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or
heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing them in the unit. Overloading the unit forces
the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the unit. This cuts
down on frost build-up inside the freezer.
Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items
as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
Replacing Your Light Bulb
NOTE:
All parts removed must be saved to do the replacement of the light bulb.
Before removing the light bulb, either turn off the appliance or disconnect the electricity leading into
the appliance at the main power supply. Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or personal
injury.
Unplug the AC power cord from the wall.
Remove the screw with a Phillips screwdriver.
Pull down to remove the lamp cover.
Unscrew the bulb.
Replace with a 10-watt bulb that is the same shape and size.
Replace the lamp cover and tighten screws.

Para mover su electrodoméstico
• Retire los alimentos.
• Asegúrese de colocar cinta adhesiva a todo lo que se puede caer dentro de su
electrodoméstico.
• Retire las patas para prevenir que se dañen.
• Selle las puertas con cinta adhesiva.
• Asegúrese que el electrodoméstico se mantenga parado durante el traslado.
Consejos para ahorrar energía
• Su electrodoméstico debe estar ubicado en el área más fría de la habitación, alejado de
electrodomésticos que produzcan calor o conductos de aire caliente y lejos de los rayos
solares.
• Los alimentos calientes deben estar a temperatura ambiental antes de colocarlos en el
electrodoméstico. Si sobrecarga su electrodoméstico forzará al compresor a funcionar más
tiempo del normal. Los alimentos que se congelan lentamente pierden calidad y se malogran.
• Asegúrese de envolver adecuadamente los alimentos y de secar los empaques o
contenedores antes de colocarlos dentro del electrodoméstico. Colocarlos mojados ocasiona
escarcha en el electrodoméstico.
• La canasta de almacenaje de su electrodoméstico no debe ser forrada con papel aluminio,
papel de cera o papel toalla ya que esto interfiere con la circulación del aire frío restando
eficiencia a su electrodoméstico.
• Organice y coloque etiquetas en los envases de los alimentos con la finalidad de encontrar
rápidamente lo que usted está buscando. Retire la mayor cantidad posible de cosas que
necesita a la vez y cierre la puerta del electrodoméstico tan pronto le sea posible.
