airtight chambers and can quickly cause
• Destroy or recycle the product’s carton, plastic
bags, and any other exterior wrapping material
immediately after the freezer is unpacked.
Children should never play with these items.
Child Entrapment and Suffocation
These problems are not limited to the past.
Whether junked, abandoned, or temporarily stored
(even for a few hours), unattended refrigerators
and freezers are dangerous. Please take the
precautions listed below.
Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers
We strongly encourage responsible appliance
recycling/disposal methods. Check with your utility
company or visit www.recyclemyoldfridge.com for
more information on recycling your old refrigerator.
Before you recycle or dispose of your old refrigerator/
• Remove the doors.
• Leave the shelves and baskets in place so
children may not easily climb inside.
• Have refrigerant and compressor oil removed by a
qualified service technician.
Electrical Information
You must follow these guidelines to ensure
that your refrigerator’s safety mechanisms are
operating correctly.
The freezer must be plugged into its own
dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC-only non-GFCI
electric outlet. The power cord of the appliance
is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for
your protection against electrical shock hazards. It
must be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle. The receptacle must
be installed in accordance with local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Do
not use an extension cord or adapter plug.
If the power cord is damaged, it should be
replaced by the manufacturer, service technician,
or a qualified person.
Never unplug the freezer by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight
out from the receptacle to prevent damaging the
power cord.
To avoid electrical shock, unplug the freezer
before cleaning and before replacing a light bulb
or LED light.
Performance may be affected if the voltage varies
by 10% or more. Operating the freezer with
insufficient power can damage the compressor.
Such damage is not covered under your warranty.
Do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled by a
wall switch or pull cord to prevent the freezer from
being turned off accidentally.
To disconnect power to the unit, unplug the unit or
switch the breaker that supplies power to the unit to
the off position.

This Use & Care Guide provides general installation
and operating instructions for your model. We
recommend using a service or kitchen contracting
professional to install your freezer. Use the freezer
only as instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before
starting the freezer, follow these important first
Choose a place that is near a grounded, nonGFCI, electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug.
If possible, place the freezer out of direct sunlight
and away from the range, dishwasher, or other
heat sources.
The freezer must be installed on a floor that is
level and strong enough to support a fully loaded
Consider water supply availability for models
equipped with an automatic ice maker.
DO NOT install the freezer where the temperature
will drop below 40°F (13°C) or rise above 110°F
(43°C). The compressor will not be able to
maintain proper temperatures inside the freezer.
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.
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.
Allow the following clearances for ease of
installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing
and electrical connections:
Back & Top
3/8 inch (9.5 mm)
1 inch (25.4 mm)
Allow for trim kit if it to be installed with the unit.
If your freezer is placed with the door hinge against
a wall, you may have to allow additional space so the
door can be opened wider.
The freezer doors are designed to shut by
themselves within a 20 degree opening.
Installing Door Handle
Door Handle Mounting
1. Remove handles from carton and any other
protective packaging.
2. Position fresh food handle end caps over upper
and lower preinstalled shoulder bolts (A) that are
fastened into door.
3. While holding handle firmly against door, fasten
upper and lower Allen set screws (B) with supplied
Allen wrench until there is no gap between handle
and door.
All set screws should be tightened so the screw is
below the surface of the handle. The handles should
be drawn tight to freezer and refrigerator doors with
no gaps. Opening the opposite door while tightening
the Allen screw makes installation easier.
The door handle may loosen over time or if it was
installed improperly. If this happens, tighten the set
screws on the handles.
Toe Grille Removal
To remove the toe grille, use a Phillips head
screwdriver and remove the two screws holding the
toe grille to the cabinet. Then pull the toe grille away
from the unit.
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.
Leveling instructions continued on next page.

from electrical power before connecting a water
supply line to the freezer.
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing is
recommended for the water supply line. Water supply
tubing made of ¼ inch plastic is not recommended to
be used. Plastic tubing greatly increases the potential
for water leaks, and the manufacturer will not be
responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is used
for the supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can
damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected
to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained
and working properly.
Ensure that your water supply line connections
comply with all local plumbing codes.

Ice Service 15
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
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.
Ice Maker Tips
If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period
of time, turn the water supply valve to the closed
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
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
1” or less
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.
• DO NOT place the ice container in 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.

18 Storing Food & Saving Energy
Energy Saving Ideas
Vacation And Moving Tips
Short Vacations:
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 freezer so that the door closes tightly.
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.
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
Moving: When moving the freezer, follow
these guidelines to prevent damage:
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall
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.
Care & 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.
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.
