Proper
Disposal
Of Refrigerators/Freezers
Before you throw away your old refrigerator/freezer:
RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
General
Safety
•
Do not store or use gasoline, or other
flammable liquids, near this or any other
appliance. Read product labels for warnings
regarding flammability and other hazards.
•
Do not operate the freezer in the presence of
explosive fumes.
Child
Safety
•
Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior
wrapping material immediately after the
freezer is unpacked. Children should never
use these items to play. Cartons covered with
rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch
wrap may become airtight chambers and can
quickly cause suffocation.
•
Remove all staples from the carton. Staples
can cause severe cuts, and destroy finishes if
they come in contact with other appliances or
furniture.
•
An empty, discarded ice box, refrigerator
or freezer is a very dangerous attraction to
children.
•
Remove or discard any spacers used to
secure the shelves during shipping. Small
objects are a choke hazard to children.
•
Remove the door(s) of any appliance that is
not in use, even if it is being discarded.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators or
freezers are still dangerous - even if they will sit for
"just a few days". If you are getting rid of your old
refrigerator or freezer, please follow the instructions
below to help prevent accidents:
•
Remove the doors.
•
Leave the shelves in place so children may
not easily climb inside.
•
Have refrigerant removed by a qualified
service technician.

Installation
This Use & Care Guide provides general operating instructions for your model. Use the freezer only as
instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before starting
the freezer, follow these important first steps.
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. DO NOT use an extension cord or an
adapter plug.
For most efficient operation, the freezer should be located where surrounding temperatures will not
drop below 40°F (5°C) or exceed 110°F (43°C).
For ease of installation, proper air circulation and electrical connections, refer to the illustration for
recommended clearances.
For dynamic condenser models, DO NOT block the toe grille on the lower front of your freezer.
Sufficient air circulation is essential for the proper operation of your freezer.

Storing Food & Saving Energy
deas for Saving
•
•
Energy
Locate the freezer in the coolest part of the
room, out of direct sunlight, and away from
heating ducts or registers. Do not place the
freezer 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 freezer operate
more efficiently.
Level the freezer so that the door closes
tightly.
Refer to the "SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
CONTROl" section for the suggested
temperature control settings.
Do not overcrowd the freezer or block cold
air vents. Doing so causes the freezer to run
longer and use more energy.
Cover foods and wipe containers dry before
placing them in the freezer. This cuts down
on moisture build-up inside the unit.
Organize the freezer to reduce door
openings. Remove as many items as needed
at one time and close the door as soon as
possible.
Vacation

•
and Moving Tips
Vacations:
Leave the freezer operating during vacations
of less than three weeks.
Long Vacations:
If the freezer will not be used for several months:
•
Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
•
Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
•
Leave the freezer door open slightly, blocking
it open if necessary, to prevent odor and
mold growth.
Moving: When moving

to prevent
•
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall
outlet.
•
Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the
freezer.
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 freezer in an
upright position to prevent movement. Also
protect outside of freezer with a blanket, or
similar item.
Power Failure / Freezer
If a power failure occurs, frozen foods will stay
frozen for at least 24 hours if the freezer is kept
closed. If the power failure continues, pack seven
or eight pounds of dry ice into the freezer every
24 hours. Look in the Yellow Pages under Dry Ice,
Dairies or Ice Cream Manufacturers for local dry
ice suppliers. Always wear gloves and use caution
when handling dry ice.
If the freezer has stopped operating, see
"FREEZER DOES NOT RUN" in the "SOLUTIONS
TO COMMON PROBLEMS" section. If you
cannot solve the problem, call Electrolux Service
immediately.
If the freezer remains off for several hours, follow
the directions above for the use of dry ice during a
power failure. If necessary, take the food to a local
locker plant until the freezer is ready to operate.
Look in the Yellow Pages under Frozen Food
Locker Plants.
Turning Your ice Maker Off
To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until
it clicks and locks in the "up" or OFF position. The
ice maker also turns off automatically when the ice
container is full. If your model has an adjustable
freezer shelf, place the shelf in the lower position.

ice Maker Tips
•
Ice cubes stored too long may develop an
odd flavor. Empty the ice container and
ensure that the wire signal arm is in its
"down" or ON position. The ice maker will
then produce more ice.
Occasionally shake the ice container to keep
ice separated.
•
Keep the wire signal arm in its "up" or OFF
position until the freezer is connected to the
water supply or whenever the water supply is
turned off.

The following sounds are normal when the
ice maker is operating:
•

Care & Cleaning
Protecting
your investment
Keep your freezer 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 cord from
the wall outlet before cleaning.
