5. Remove the interior packing material and wipe out the inside of the unit with a clean, water-dampened cloth.

Rotate Front Legs to Adjust

Rotate Clockwise to raise rear leg.

Rotate Counter-Clockwise to lower leg.

3. Confirm the unit is level after each adjustment and repeat the previous steps until the unit is level.

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. Adjust the front legs to level the unit after it is correctly positioned in the opening.

Cleaning

EXTERIOR CLEANING

Stainless Models

Stainless door panels and handles can discolor when exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, saltwater or cleaners with bleach.

Integrated Models

To clean integrated panels, use household cleaner per the cabinet manufacturer’s recommendation.

INTERIOR CLEANING

Disconnect power to the unit.

Clean the interior and all removed components using a mild nonabrasive detergent and warm water solution applied with a soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth.

Keep your stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a good quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner and polish monthly. For best results use Claire

®

Stainless Steel

Polish and Cleaner, which can be purchased from U-Line

Corporation (Part Number 173348). Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent cleaning will remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some installations may require cleaning weekly.

Rinse the interior using a soft sponge and clean water.

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.

Do not use stainless steel cleaners or polishes on any glass surfaces.

Clean any glass surfaces with a non-chlorine glass cleaner.

DEFROSTING

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.

Do not use cleaners not specifically intended for stainless steel on stainless steel surfaces (this includes glass, tile and counter cleaners).

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.

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.

High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can also produce frost.

Using abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite™ will cause the graining in the stainless steel to become blurred.

Rust not cleaned up promptly can penetrate the surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of the rust may not be possible.

!

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.
