Environmental Requirements
This model is intended for indoor/interior applications only
and is not to be used in installations that are open/
exposed to natural elements.
This unit is designed to operate between 50°F (10°C) and
100°F (38°C). Higher ambient temperatures may reduce
the unit’s ability to reach low temperatures and/or reduce
ice production on applicable models.
For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight
and away from heat generating equipment.
In climates where high humidity and dew points are
present, condensation may appear on outside surfaces.
This is considered normal. The condensation will
evaporate when the humidity drops.
! CAUTION
Damages caused by ambient temperatures of
40°F (4°C) or below are not covered by the
warranty.

! WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding
Required. Never attempt to repair or perform
maintenance on the unit until the electricity has
been disconnected.
Never remove the round grounding prong from
the plug and never use a two-prong grounding
adapter.
Altering, cutting or removing power cord,
removing power plug, or direct wiring can cause
serious injury, fire, loss of property and/or life,
and will void the warranty.
Never use an extension cord to connect power to
the unit.
Always keep your working area dry.
NOTICE
Electrical installation must observe all state and
local codes. This unit requires connection to a
grounded (three-prong), polarized receptacle
that has been placed by a qualified electrician.
The unit requires a grounded and polarized 115 VAC,
60 Hz, 15A power supply (normal household current). An
individual, properly grounded branch circuit or circuit
breaker is recommended. A GFCI (ground fault circuit
interrupter) is usually not required for fixed location
appliances and is not recommended for your unit because
it could be prone to nuisance tripping. However, be sure
to consult your local codes.
See CUTOUT DIMENSIONS for recommended receptacle
location.

INSTALLATION TIP
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cutout
opening, adjust the rear legs to achieve a total unit rear
height of 1/8" (3 mm) less than the opening’s rear height.
Shorten the unit height in the front by adjusting the front
legs. This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the
opening. Readjust the front legs to level the unit after it is
correctly positioned in the opening.

or the unit will not perform as expected. Do not
install the unit behind a door. When loading your
unit, leave space between the evaporator and
product loaded. Anything in direct contact with
the evaporator is subject to freezing.
When properly loaded, your U-Line unit will store up to
114 (12 oz. [330 ml]) cans or 61 (12 oz. [330 ml]) bottles.

DEFROSTING
Do not use cleaners not specifically intended for
stainless steel on stainless surfaces (this
includes glass, tile and counter cleaners).
Under normal conditions this unit does not require manual
defrosting. Minor frost on the rear wall or visible through
the evaporator plate vents is normal and will melt during
each off cycle.
If there is excessive build-up of 1/4" (6 mm) or more,
manually defrost the unit.
Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.

SAFETY • INSTALLATION & INTEGRATION • OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS • MAINTENANCE • SERVICE
High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can
also produce frost.
! CAUTION
DO NOT use an ice pick or other sharp
instrument to help speed up defrosting. These
instruments can puncture the inner lining or
damage the cooling unit. DO NOT use any type of
heater to defrost. Using a heater to speed up
defrosting can cause personal injury and
damage to the inner lining.
NOTICE
The drain pan was not designed to capture the
water created when manually defrosting. To
prevent water from overflowing the drain pan,
place towels or other absorbent materials over
the interior drain trough (under the evaporator)
before defrosting.
To defrost:
1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Remove all products from the interior.
3. Prop the door in an open position (2 in. [50 mm]
minimum).
4. Allow the frost to melt naturally.
5. After the frost melts completely clean the interior and
all removed components. (See INTERIOR CLEANING).
6. When the interior is dry, reconnect power and turn unit
on.

required, adjust the temperature control in a small
increment (see CONTROL OPERATION).
Causes which affect the internal temperatures of
the cabinet include:
• Temperature setting.
• Ambient temperature where installed.
• Installation in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
• The number of door openings and the time the door is
open.
• The time the internal light is illuminated. (This mainly
affects product on the top rack or shelf.)
• Obstruction of front grille or condenser.
To check the actual product temperature in the
unit:
1. Partially fill a plastic (nonbreakable) bottle with water.
2. Insert an accurate thermometer.
3. Tighten the bottle cap securely.
4. Place the bottle in the desired area for 24 hours.
5. Avoid opening the unit during the testing period.
