Environmental Requirements
This unit is designed to operate between 50°F (10°C) and
100°F (37°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 (5°C) or below are not covered by the

! 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 of power cord, removal of
power cord, removal of power plug, or direct
wiring can cause serious injury, fire and or 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. GFCI (ground fault circuit
interrupter) is usually not required for fixed location
appliances and is not recommended for your unit because
a GFCI could be prone to nuisance tripping. However, be
sure to consult your local codes.
See CUT-OUT DIMENSIONS for recommended receptacle
location.

INSTALLATION TIP
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cut-out
opening, adjust the rear feet 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
feet. This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the
opening. Adjust the front feet to level the unit after it is
correctly positioned in the opening.

contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations
may require cleaning weekly.
Do not use any solvent-based or abrasive
cleaners. These types of cleaners may transfer taste to
the interior products and damage or discolor the lining.
Do not clean with steel wool pads.
DEFROSTING
Do not use stainless steel cleaners or polishes on
any glass surfaces.

Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.
Do not use cleaners not specifically intended for
stainless steel on stainless steel surfaces (this
includes glass, tile and counter cleaners).
High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can
also produce frost.
If any surface discoloring or rusting appears, clean it
quickly with Bon-Ami® or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser®
and a nonabrasive cloth. Always clean with the grain.
Always finish with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner
or comparable product to prevent further problems.
Using abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite™ will
cause the graining in the stainless steel to
become blurred.
! 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.
Rust not cleaned up promptly can penetrate the
surface of the stainless steel and complete
removal of the rust may not be possible.

Temperature.
Adjust the temperate to a cooler set-point.
(See OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS)
Ensure unit is not located in excessive
ambient temperatures or in direct sunlight.
Ensure the door is closing and sealing
properly.
Ensure the interior light has not remained on
too long.
Ensure nothing is blocking the front grille,
found at the bottom of the unit.
Ensure the condenser coil is clean and free of
any dirt or lint build-up.
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.)
CHECKING PRODUCT TEMPERATURE
• The front grille or condenser are obstructed.
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.
