INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
? Before Using Your Refrigerator
? Remove the exterior and interior packing.
? Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
? 1 Ice cube tray.
? Instruction manual
? Before connecting the refrigerator 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.
? Installation of Your Refrigerator
? This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
? Place your refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support the refrigerator when it is
fully loaded. To level your refrigerator, adjust the legs at the front of the refrigerator.
? Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the refrigerator, which allows the
proper air circulation to cool the compressor.
? Locate the refrigerator 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 not to
perform properly.
? Avoid locating the refrigerator in moist areas.
? Plug the refrigerator 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.
8
? 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 should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this
refrigerator 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.
Use of extension cords is not recommended.
This refrigerator requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground.
The cord should be secured behind the refrigerator and not left exposed or dangling to
prevent accidental injury.
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull
straight out from the receptacle.
9
OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
? Setting the Temperature Control
? To control the internal temperature, adjust the control dial according to the ambient
temperature or purpose of use.
? The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to “cold.”
? The range of the temperature control is from position "warm to cold.” After 24 to 48 hours,
adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “MID”
should be correct for home or office refrigerator use.
NOTE:
? If the unit is unplugged, power lost, or turned off; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting
the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the refrigerator will not start.
?
?
?
?
Use of the Ice Cube Trays
For your ice requirements, fill approximately ¾ of the tray after washing it.
If you want to make ice cubes quick, set thermostat to “cold” position.
To release the ice cubes, hold the tray upside down and twist slightly at
both ends until the pieces of ice fall.
? The Chiller Compartment
? This compartment is designed for production of ice cubes and short term storage (3-4 days at
most) of some commercially frozen foods.
? The temperature in this compartment does not get cold enough to freeze food safely for long
periods of time and works best when the food is already frozen.
? By design; this chiller compartment is not a true freezer, and may not keep ice cream frozen, or
freeze items.
? A colder setting may be used for these items, but other items in the refrigerator may also be
affected.
? The chiller door is susceptible to breaking due to excessive ice build up. This part is not covered
under your warranty. Be sure to defrost when the ice reaches ¼ inch thick.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
? Defrosting Your Refrigerator
Defrost the refrigerator when the frost accumulated on the evaporator is about 5mm (1/5 inch)
thick. Set the thermostat dial to “OFF” or “DEFROST” position. Remove frozen or perishable
foods. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. After defrosting, return the thermostat dial to the
desired position. To defrost quickly remove all foods from the refrigerator and leave the door
open. Never use a knife or other metal instrument to scrape ice/frost from the evaporator.

11
? CHANGING THE REVERSIBLE DOOR
The refrigerator has been built with the door hinges on the right. If you wish to change the opening
direction, follow the instructions below:
Unplug the refrigerator from its electrical outlet.
Empty everything in the refrigerator, including shelves, food, etc.
?
?
?
?
?
?
Remove the upper hinge cover on the right top of the cabinet Remove all 3 bolts holding the
upper hinge to the cabinet along with the spacer underneath. Save these bolts, hinge, and
spacer for later use.
Remove the plastic caps from the upper left holes and transfer them to the uncovered holes at the
right side. Be sure to press the plug buttons firmly into the holes.
Incline the refrigerator backward (do not lay it on the floor). Using a pliers remove the right foot.
Also remove the two bolts holding the lower hinge to the cabinet. Save the bolts, hinge, and
washer for later use.
Remove the left foot and transfer it to the opposite side.
Insert the lower hinge at the opposite side (left) using the two bolts and washer previously
removed.
?
Mount the right foot previously removed to the opposite side (left). Then mount the leveling foot
?
in the uncovered hole (right).
Set the door to its place.
?
While holding the door in the closed position, secure the top hinge at the left side using the three
?
bolts and spacer previously removed at the beginning of the operation.
Do not tighten the bolts until the top of the door is leveled.
?
Replace the hinge cover.
12
? Cleaning Your Refrigerator
? Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the refrigerator, 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 should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
? Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning 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.
? Vacation Time
? Short vacations: Leave the refrigerator 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
? Remove all the food.
? Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.
? Turn the leveling screws up to the base to avoid damage.
? Tape the door shut.
? Be sure the refrigerator stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
protect outside of refrigerator with a blanket, or similar item.
Also
? Energy Saving Tips
? The refrigerator 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. Overloading the
refrigerator forces the compressor to run longer.
? Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the
refrigerator. This cuts down on frost build -up inside the refrigerator.
? Refrigerator storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling.
Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator 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.
