INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Refrigerator/freezer
? Remove the exterior and interior packing.
? Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
? 1 Shelf in Freezer Section
? 2 Shelves in Refrigerator Section
? 1 Crisper
? 1 Crisper Glass Lid
? 1 Ice Cube Tray
? 1 Instruction Manual
? Before connecting the refrigerator/freezer to the power source, let it stand upright for
approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system
from handling during transportation.
? Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing Your Refrigerator/freezer
? This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
? Place your refrigerator/freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support the
refrigerator/freezer when it is fully loaded. To level your refrigerator/freezer, adjust the leveling
leg at the bottom of the refrigerator/freezer.
? Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator/freezer, which allows
the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.
? Locate the refrigerator/freezer away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater,
radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase
electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the
refrigerator/freezer not to perform properly.
? Avoid locating the refrigerator/freezer in moist areas.
? Plug the refrigerator/freezer into an exclusive, properly installed-groun ded wall outlet. Do not
9
?
under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any
questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician
or an authorized Avanti Products service center.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before
placing food in the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
Electrical Connection
? Warning?
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.
This refrigerator/freezer should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this
refrigerator/freezer is equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall
outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug that mates with a standard 3-prong grounding wall outlet to
minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from the appliance.
This refrigerator/freezer requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical outlet with three -prong
ground. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and
obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3 -prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the refrigerator/freezer and not left exposed or dangling to
prevent accidental injury.
The refrigerator/freezer should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a
voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and
also prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never
unplug the refrigerator/freezer by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight
out from the receptacle. Repair or replace immedia tely all power cords that have become frayed or
otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at
either end. When moving the refrigerator/freezer, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this refrigerator/freezer. However, if you must use an extension cord it
is absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at
least 10 amperes.
Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This appliance has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit is
delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening
direction, please call customer service for reversal instructions.
10
OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER
Setting the Temperature Control
? Your refrigerator/freezer has only one control for regulating the temperature in the fresh food
compartment. The temperature control is located on the upper right hand side of the fresh
food section.
? The freezer compartment temperature is preset and cannot be controlled by the thermostat
? The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to “6.”
? The range of the temperature control is from position "OFF” to “6”. After 24 to 48 hours,
adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “4”
shoud be appropriate for home or office refrigerator/freezer use.
? To turn the appliance off, turn the temperature control to ”OFF”.
NOTE:
? Turning the temperature control to “OFF” position stops the cooling cycle but does not shut off the
power to the refrigerator/freezer.
? If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before
restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the refrigerator/freezer will not
start.
Using Your Ice Cube Tray
? Recommended thermostat setting for ice making is position 6.
? Fill the ice cube tray (two thirds of it) with cold water or with any liquid suitable
for freezing and place the tray on the bottom of the freezer to freeze properly.
? Dry the tray, otherwise it may stick to the bottom of the freezer.
? The best method to get ice cubes out of the tray is to hold the tray under cold
tap water for a second.
? To eject the ice cubes from the tray, place over the ice bucket and twist slightly
Freezing Fresh Foods
? Proper use of the appliance, adequately packed food, correct temperature and taking into account
hygienic precautions will substantially influence the quality of freezing the food or storing of the
frozen foods.
? This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food.
? The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be
exceeded.
? Pre-packed commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen foods
manufacturer’s instructions for a three star frozen food storage compartment or home freezer.
? Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are instructions
on the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.
? Carefully select food you intend to freeze; it should be of adequate quality and suitable for
freezing.
? Use correct packaging and wrap it tight.
? The packaging should be airtight and shouldn’t leak since this could cause substantial vitamin
loss and dehydration of foods.
? Foils and bags should be soft enough to tightly wrap around the foods.
? When preparing foods to be frozen, consider sanitary precautions.
? Mark packages with following data: kind and amount of foods and the date of loading.
? It is most important that the food is frozen as quickly as possible.
? If the loading amount is too large, the quality of freezing is reduced which affects the quality of
frozen foods.
11
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Refrigerator/freezer
? Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the refrigerator/freezer, and remove the food,
shelves, and trays.
? Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be
about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
? Wash the shelves and trays with a mild detergent solution.
? The outside of the refrigerator/freezer should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
? Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of t he controls, or any
electrical parts.
? Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry
with a clean soft cloth.
CAUTION:
Failure to unplug the refrigerator/freezer could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
Defrosting Your Refrigerator/freezer
? When? For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption, defrost the
refrigerator/freezer when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive or ¼ inch thick.
? How? To start defrosting, turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the refrigerator/freezer,
remove the food and shelves. After the frost or ice has melted, discard the melted water and dry
up the interior of refrigerator/freezer. Then the refrigerator/freezer can be restarted by a turning its
thermostat to the desired setting.
CAUTION
Do not use boiling water because it may damage the plastic parts. In addition, never use a
sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost as it may damage the cooling coils and will void
the warranty. We recommend using a plastic scraper.
? Use a sponge or towel to pick up the melting ice off the refrigerator/freezer floor.
? Remove the frozen food from the freezer compartment and place it in a cooler to protect the food.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your
refrigerator/freezer if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be
off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your food.
Vacation Time
? Short vacations: Leave the refrigerator/freezer operating during vacations of less than three
weeks.
? Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug
the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave
the door open slightly: blocking it open if necessary.
Moving Your Refrigerator/freezer
? Remove all the food.
? Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator/freezer.
? Turn the leveling screw up to the base to avoid damage.
12
?
?
Tape the door shut.
Be sure the refrigerator/freezer stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
Also protect the outside of refrigerator/freezer with a blanket, or similar item.
Ene rgy Saving Tips
? The refrigerator/freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat
producing appliances, and out of the direct sunlight.
? Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator/freezer. Overloading
the refrigerator/freezer forces the compressor to run longer.
? Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the
refrigerator/freezer. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the refrigerator/freezer.
? Refrigerator/freezer storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper
toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator/freezer less
efficient.
? Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many
items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
