garage a few days.”
Before you throw away your old refrigerator: Take off the doors. Leave the
shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the refrigerator.
Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire
hazard or explosion.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Before Using Your Unit
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
• 2 Shelves
• 1 Instruction Manual
• Before connecting the unit 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.
7

Installing Your Unit
• This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
• Place your unit on a floor that is strong enough to support the unit when it is fully loaded. To
level your unit, adjust the leveling legs at the bottom of the unit.
• Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the unit, which allows the proper air
circulation to cool the compressor and condenser.
• Locate the unit 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 unit not to perform
properly.
• Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
• Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not 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 compartment.

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 unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit 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.
This unit 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 unit and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental
injury.
The unit 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
unit by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
Repair or replace immediately 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 unit, 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 unit. 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.
OPERATING YOUR UNIT
 Setting the Temperature Control
• Your unit has only one control for regulating the temperature in the compartment. The temperature
control is located on the upper right hand side of the compartment.
• 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” should be
appropriate for home or office 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 unit.
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 unit will not start.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE

•
•
•
•
•
•
Cleaning Your Unit
Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the unit, and remove the food, shelf, and tray.
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 shelf and tray with a mild detergent solution.
The outside of the unit should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the 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 unit could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
 Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your
unit 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.

Energy Saving Tips
The unit 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 unit. Overloading the unit forces the
compressor to run longer.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the unit. This cuts
down on frost build-up inside the unit.
Unit storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners
interfere with cold air circulation, making the unit 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.

exterior con un trapo suave y seco, y el interior con un trapo húmedo y tibio.
UBICACION
1. Seleccione un lugar con un piso firme y nivelado.
2. Su refrigerador requiere ventilación. Deje un espacio mínimo de 5” hacia arriba y espacio
suficiente en el respaldo para permitir la circulación de aire.

niveladores. Para verificar el nivel, abra la puerta hasta la mitad, debe regresar sola.
INSTRUCCIONES PARA LA CONEXION A TIERRA
Este aparato electrodoméstico debe estar conectado a tierra. En caso de un cortocircuito eléctrico, la
conexión a tierra reduce el riesgo de choque eléctrico proporcionando un cable de escape para la
corriente eléctrica. Este aparato viene equipado con un cordón que posee un cable a tierra con un
enchufe de conexión a tierra. Este enchufe debe estar conectado en un tomacorriente instalado
correctamente y conectado a tierra.
ADVERTENCIA
El uso inadecuado del enchufe de conexión a tierra puede resultar en un riesgo de choque eléctrico.
Consulte con un electricista si no comprende bien las instrucciones de conexión a tierra o si existe
alguna duda sobre si el aparato está conectado a tierra correctamente.

eléctrica o junto a cualquier otro electrodoméstico en el mismo tomacorriente de pared.
COMO AJUSTAR EL CONTROL DE TEMPERATURA
Su unidad tiene un solo control para regular la temperatura, este control se encuentra localizado en la
parte superior derecha del compartimiento.
Al conectar y encender su unidad, asegúrese de rotar el control de temperatura hacia la posición de
“6”.
Este control de temperatura puede variar desde “OFF” hasta la posición “6”, después de haberse
mantenido en la posición “6” por 24 o 48 horas aproximadamente, regrese el control de temperatura
para ajustarlo a la posición que más se ajuste a sus necesidades, por ejemplo la posición “4” sería
apropiada para usar su unidad en su hogar u oficinas.
Para apagar su unidad, simplemente rote el control de temperatura hacia la posición de “OFF”.
Nota:
Rotando el control de temperatura hacia la posición de “OFF”, Usted solamente apaga el cyclo de
enfriamiento, pero no desconecta su unidad de la fuente de corriente.
Si la unidad es desconectada de la pared o sufre una interrupción de electricidad Usted siempre debe
esperar por un aproximado de 3 a 5 minutos para poder encenderla de nuevo, de no hacerlo así, su
unidad no comenzará a funcionar.

puertas o cerraduras de todo electrodoméstico que no esté en uso, es tambien aconsejable remover
o quitar puertas al momento de desechar su refrigerador.
OPERACION
