IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
WARNING
Please read all safety instructions before using your new Electrolux refrigerator.
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 refrigerator in the presence of explosive fumes.
Child Safety
• Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately
after the refrigerator 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.
Proper Disposal Of Refrigerators And Freezers
RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
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 door(s).
•
Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.
•
Have the refrigerant removed by a qualified technician.
Safety
ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
!
WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to ensure that your refrigerator’s safety mechanisms are
operating correctly.
• Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical rating. The power cord of the
refrigerator is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection
against shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into its own properly
grounded three-prong receptacle, protected with a 15 amp time delay fuse or
circuit breaker. The power supply circuit must be installed in accordance with
current edition of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) and local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Receptacles
protected by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)
are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT USE AN
EXTENSION CORD OR AN ADAPTER PLUG.
• If the voltage varies by 10 percent or more, refrigerator
performance may be affected. Operating the refrigerator
with insufficient power can damage the motor. Such
damage is not covered under the warranty. If you
suspect your household voltage is high or low, consult
your power company for testing.
• To prevent the refrigerator from being turned off
accidentally, do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled
by a wall switch or pull cord.
• Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.
• Do not pinch, knot, or bend the power cord in any manner.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the
plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
• Turning the control to "OFF" turns off the compressor but does not disconnect
power to the light bulb or other electrical components.
!
WARNING
Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug. Do not
remove any prong from the power cord.

This Owner's Guide provides specific operating instructions for your model. Use
the refrigerator only as instructed in this Owner's Guide. Before starting the
refrigerator, follow these important first steps.
INSTALLATION
• Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. DO NOT use an
extension cord or an adapter plug.
1” (25mm)
• For most efficient operation, the refrigerator should be
located where surrounding temperatures will not drop
below 40ºF (5ºC) or exceed 110ºF (43ºC).
• Allow the following clearances for ease of installation,
proper air circulation, and electrical connections:
Sides
3/8 inch
Back & Top
1 inch
• 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.

NO
TE
NOTE
The exterior walls of the refrigerator may become quite warm as the compressor works to
transfer heat from the inside. Temperatures as much as 30ºF warmer than room temperature
can be expected.
DOOR OPENING
NO
TE
NOTE
If your refrigerator is placed with the door hinge side against a wall, you may have to allow
additional space so the door can be opened wider.
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.
8 Installation
TO LEVEL REFRIGERATOR:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the
refrigerator from front to back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2 bubble
higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open.
LEVELING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL REFRIGERATOR / FREEZER PAIR:
• Remove two leg levelers provided in literature bag. While unit is lying on its
back for wood skid removal, install both leg levelers in rear of unit.
• Level door of first unit using all four levelers and slide unit into place.
Recheck for levelness and adjust if necessary.
• Measure distance from floor to bottom of door on first unit. Adjust and level
second unit so door height matches.
• Leg Level Adjustments:
• One full turn of all four leg levelers will raise door 5/32".
• One full turn of both front leg levelers will raise door 3/16" and tilt top of door
back 7/16".
• One full turn of both rear leg levelers will lower door 1/32" and tilt top of door
forward 7/16".
• One full turn of both side leg levelers will raise door 3/16" and tilt top of door
3/8".
• 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.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
To allow door to close and seal properly, do not let food packages
extend past the front of the shelves.
Installation
DOOR REMOVAL
If door must be removed:

12 Refrigerators Features
SMOOTH GLIDE CRISPERS WITH ADJUSTABLE DIVIDERS
The crispers, located under the bottom refrigerator
shelf, are designed for storing fruits, vegetables, and
other fresh produce. Wash items in clear water and
remove excess water before placing them in the
crispers. Items with strong odors or high moisture
content should be wrapped before storing. Dividers
may be adjusted for different size items within the
crisper.
HUMIDITY CONTROL
Higher Humidity
Lower Humidity
The humidity control allows you to adjust the humidity within the
crisper. This can extend the life of fresh vegetables that keep
best in high humidity.
NO
TE
NOTE
Leafy vegetables keep best when stored with the humidity control set on HIGH HUMIDITY, or
in a drawer without a humidity control. This keeps incoming air to a minimum and maintains
maximum moisture content..
ADJUSTABLE DOOR BINS
This model is equipped with adjustable door bins that can be moved to suit
individual needs.
TO MOVE DOOR BINS:
•
Lift the bin straight up.
•
Remove the bin.
•
Place the bin in desired position.
•
Lower the bin onto supports until locked in place.
Refrigerator Features
FULL WIDTH GALLON BIN
The full width gallon bin is especially designed to hold gallon-sized containers like
milk gallons.
TALL BOTTLE RETAINER / BIN SNUGGER

14 Refrigerator Features
AIR FILTER
The air filter is located on the back of the control box. In general, you should
change the air filter every six months to ensure optimal filtering of refrigerator
odors. You may want to adjust this time period depending on the types and
amounts of food you typically store in your refrigerator.
TO REPLACE THE AIR FILTER:
• Push the plastic bubble tab at the back of the control
box housing. This releases the hinged bottom half to drop
open.
• Remove the old filter and discard it.
• Unpackage the new filter and place it inside the hinged
bottom half of the housing.
• Push the hinged bottom half upward until the tab snaps into
closed position.
WATER FILTER
PureSource2TM WATER FILTER
IMPOR
TANT NO
TE
IMPORT
NOTE
The water filter system in this product is designed to work only when connected to the ice
maker in the matching Electrolux ICON freezer. Do not attempt to connect this filter to a
water source without first connecting it to the mating ice maker as described in the
"CONNECTING ICE MAKER TO WATER SUPPLY" (P/N 297114600) included with the
Electrolux ICON Model E32AF75FPS freezer; connecting the filter in any other manner risks
severe water damage to both your refrigerator and surrounding furnishings.
The water filter is located on the upper left front corner of the refrigerator. Water
conditions vary throughout the world, but changing the water filter every 6 – 9
months normally will ensure the highest possible water quality.
Refrigerator Features
TO INSTALL WATER FILTER:
• The water filter cartridge comes separate inside the unit.
Before installing the water filter, be sure to remove the filter
from the packaging and two plastic caps that protect the inlet
and outlet ports of the water filter. The water supply does not
need to be turned off.
• Insert the water filter cartridge into the filter housing. When
the cartridge is almost in, you will feel it stop against the clip
assembly in the back of the housing. The clip assembly holds
the filter cartridge firmly in place.
• At this point, you will need to push firmly until the cartridge
snaps fully in place. When completely in place, the front of the
filter cartridge will be flush with the front of the housing.”
TO REPLACE WATER FILTER:
• It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter. Push the
filter release button, located to the right of the filter cartridge, to release the
filter from the housing. To minimize the possibility of the filter falling out of the
housing during removal, it would be best to hold the filter as it moves out
toward you. NOTE: A small amount of water may be released during this
operation. You should have a paper towel or dish cloth handy to wipe out any
water that may drip out of the filter or housing. Two small holes near the back
of the housing have been added for any excess water to escape. It would be
best to clear away any food near this area on the top shelf in advance of
removing the filter.
• Pull the old filter cartridge straight out of the housing and discard it.
• Then follow the instructions above for installing a water filter.

Storing Food & Saving Energy
IDEAS FOR STORING FOODS
Fresh Food Storage
• 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.
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.
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 the 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.

18 Storing Food & Saving Energy
VACATION AND MOVING TIPS
Short Vacations:
• Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
Long Vacations:
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:
• 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
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
• 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
NO
TE
NOTE
•
Turning the refrigerator temperature control to "OFF" turns off the
compressor, but does not disconnect electrical power to the light bulb or
other electrical components. To turn off power to your refrigerator, you must
unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
•
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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
WARNING
Please read all safety instructions before using your new Electrolux freezer.
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.
Proper Disposal Of Refrigerators And Freezers
RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
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 door(s).
•
Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.
•
Have the refrigerant removed by a qualified technician.
Safety
ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
!
WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to ensure that your freezer’s’s safety mechanisms are
operating correctly.
• Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical rating. The power cord of the
freezer is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against
shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into its own properly grounded
three-prong receptacle, protected with a 15 amp time delay fuse or circuit
breaker. The power supply circuit must be installed in accordance with
current edition of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) and local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Receptacles
protected by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)
are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT USE AN
EXTENSION CORD OR AN ADAPTER PLUG.
• If the voltage varies by 10 percent or more, freezer
performance may be affected. Operating the freezer
with insufficient power can damage the motor. Such
damage is not covered under the warranty. If you
suspect your household voltage is high or low, consult
your power company for testing.
• To prevent the freezer from being turned off accidentally,
do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled by a wall
switch or pull cord.
• Unplug the freezer before cleaning and before replacing
a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.
• Do not pinch, knot, or bend the power cord in any manner.
Other Precautions
• Never unplug the freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug
firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
• Turning the control to "OFF" turns off the compressor but does not disconnect
power to the light bulb or other electrical components.
!
WARNING
Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug. Do not
remove any prong from the power cord.

follow these important first steps.
INSTALLATION
• Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. DO NOT use an
extension cord or an adapter plug.
1” (25mm)
• For most efficient operation, the freezer should be
located where surrounding temperatures will not drop
below 40ºF (5ºC) or exceed 110ºF (43ºC).
• Allow the following clearances for ease of installation,
proper air circulation, and electrical connections:
Sides
3/8 inch
Back & Top
1 inch
• Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of your

TE
NOTE
The exterior walls of the freezer may become quite warm as the compressor works to
transfer heat from the inside. Temperatures as much as 30ºF warmer than room temperature
can be expected.
Door Opening
NO
TE
NOTE
If your freezer is placed with the door hinge side against a wall, you may have to allow
additional space so the door can be opened wider.
Leveling
The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on a solid floor. The floor
must be strong enough to support a fully loaded freezer. It is VERY IMPORTANT
for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled
during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly,
causing cooling, frost or moisture problems.
8 Installation
To Level Freezer:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the
freezer from front to back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2 bubble higher,
so that the door closes easily when left halfway open.
Leveling Instructions For All Refrigerator / Freezer Pair:
• Remove two leg levelers provided in literature bag. While unit is lying on its back
for wood skid removal, install both leg levelers in rear of unit.
• Level door of first unit using all four levelers and slide unit into place. Recheck
for levelness and adjust if necessary.
• Measure distance from floor to bottom of door on first unit. Adjust and level
second unit so door height matches.
• Leg Level Adjustments:
• One full turn of all four leg levelers will raise door 5/32".
• One full turn of both front leg levelers will raise door 3/16" and tilt top of door
back 7/16".
• One full turn of both rear leg levelers will lower door 1/32" and tilt top of door
forward 7/16".
• One full turn of both side leg levelers will raise door 3/16" and tilt top of door 3/8".
• 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.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
To allow door to close and seal properly, do not let food packages
extend past the front of the shelves.
Installation

difficult to store on freezer shelves. Dividers may be
adjusted for different size items within the crisper.
11
12 Freezer Features
Tilt - Out Shelf
This shelf is located inside on the freezer door and provides
additional storage space. To access an item, tilt the top of
"basket" shelf down.
AIR FILTER
The air filter is located on the back of the control box. In
general, you should change the air filter every six months to
ensure optimal filtering of refrigerator odors. You may want to
adjust this time period depending on the types and amounts of
food you typically store in your refrigerator.
To Replace The Air Filter:
•
Push the plastic bubble tab at the back of the control
box housing. This releases the hinged bottom half to drop
open.
•
Remove the old filter and discard it.
•
Unpackage the new filter and place it inside the hinged
bottom half of the housing.
•
Push the hinged bottom half upward until the tab snaps into
closed position.
Storing Food & Saving Energy
ENERGY SAVING IDEAS
• 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
Short 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 the freezer, follow these guidelines to prevent
damage:
• Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
• Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the freezer.
13
14 Storing Food & Saving Energy
• 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 FAILURE
NO
TE
NOTE
Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours.
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
"TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE" section. If you cannot solve the problem, call
Sears 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.
Ice Service
ICE SERVICE
If your freezer has an automatic icemaker, it will provide a sufficient supply of ice
for normal use. During the initial startup of your freezer, however, no ice will be
produced during the first 24 hours of operation. Automatic ice
makers are also optional accessories that may be installed in
some models at any time. Call your local dealer for information.
Turning Your Ice Maker On
After the plumbing connections have been completed, the
water supply valve must be opened. Place the ice container
under the ice maker, pushing it as far back as possible. Lower
the wire signal arm to its "down" or ON position. New plumbing
connections may cause the first production of ice cubes to be
discolored or have an odd flavor. These first cubes should be
discarded until the cubes produced are free of discoloration
and taste.
Leveling Bracket
Turning Your Ice Maker Off
Ice
Container
1” or less
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,
so that the wire signal arm will hit the ice
when the container is full.
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
Your ice maker is shipped with the wire signal arm in the ON position. To ensure proper
function of your ice maker, hook up water supply immediately or turn ice maker OFF by
lifting the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the UP position.
Check the leveling bracket on the ice maker to ensure the ice maker is level. If the gap
between the freezer wall and the ice maker is the same at top and bottom, then ice maker is
level. If the ice maker is not level, loosen the screw and slide the bracket to the correct
position to make it level. Retighten the screw. You will need a 1/4 inch socket wrench for this
task.
15
16 Ice Service
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:
•
Motor running
•
Ice loosening from tray
•
Ice dropping into ice container
•
Running water
•
Water valve opening or closing
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
•
DO NOT place the ice container in your dishwasher
•
Wash the ice container in warm water with mild detergent. Rinse well
and dry.
•
Stop the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations.
•
If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period of time, turn the
water supply valve to the closed position.
CARE AND CLEANING
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.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
• When moving the freezer, pull straight out. Do not shift the freezer 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
NO
TE
NOTE
•
Turning the freezer temperature control to "OFF" turns off the compressor,
but does not disconnect electrical power to the light bulb or other electrical
components. To turn off power to your freezer, you must unplug the power
cord from the wall outlet.
•
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.
