The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into its own properly grounded three-prong receptacle, protected with a 15 amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker. The receptacle must be installed in accordance with the local codes and ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Receptacles with Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT use an extension cord or an adapter plug. • If voltage varies by 10 percent or more, appliance performance may be affected. Operating the appliance with insufficient power can damage the motor. Such damage is not covered under the warranty. If you suspect your voltage is high or low, consult your power company for testing. Child Safety • Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after the appliance is unpacked. Children should never use these items for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation. • A child might suffocate if he crawls into the appliance to hide or play. Remove the door of the appliance when not in use, even if you plan to discard the appliance. Many communities have laws requiring you to take this safety precaution. 2 Appliance Start-Up • To prevent the appliance from being turned off accidentally, do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord. • Do not pinch, knot, or bend the power cord in any manner. Once the appliance has been located in its permanent location and the proper power and grounding has been provided, the following items must be checked or completed: Other Precautions Cool Down Period • Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. • To avoid electrical shock, unplug the appliance before cleaning. Note: Turning the control to OFF turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect power to other electrical components. For safe food storage, allow 24 hours for the appliance to cool down completely before loading with food. The appliance will run continuously for the first several hours. Do not place any food in the appliance until after the first 24 hours of operation. Thermostat Settings The appliance is shipped from the factory with the thermostat set at about the mid-point of the operating range. Adjustments colder or warmer can be made after the appliance has been running for at least 8 hours. Allow at least 8 hours for temperature stabilization before re-adjusting the thermostat. Installation and Setup Inspection for Damage Inspect the underside of the cabinet and packaging for damage such as a fork truck can cause. If hidden damage is found after uncrating, immediately call the delivery carrier and request an inspection. Retain all packaging and crating materials until the inspection is complete. Features • • • • • • • • • • Uncrating and Set-Up • Using a utility knife with a sharp, short blade, cut along the perimeter of the carton as indicated. • Lift the carton off the freezer. • Remove the package containing the casters from the freezer. This package will contain the following items: • One (1) wrench • Sixteen (16) screws • Four (4) casters Heavy duty epoxy powder coated slide-aside basket Security lock with pop-out key Fiberglass lid insulation 2-1/2" urethane foam cabinet insulation Counterbalanced lid Heavy duty swivel casters Adjustable temperature control NSF certified interior Heavy duty commercially rated electrical harness Defrost Drain 4 Swivel Casters Casters: The appliance comes with 4 swivel casters.

Tighten securely. • With an assistant, tilt the freezer back up onto the casters. Slide-Aside Basket This basket helps organize odd-shaped items. To reach other packages in the freezer, slide the basket aside or lift out. Security Lock with Pop-Out Key Appliance Placement This security lock fastens the door snugly, ensuring that stored food is secure. To lock or unlock the freezer, slide the key into the lock and turn. The key pops out of the lock after it has been turned. Leave a three (3) inch space on all sides and the back of the cabinet for adequate air circulation. Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. For the most efficient operation, the appliance should be located where surrounding temperatures will not exceed 110°F (43°C). Appliance should not be operated in ambient below 32°F (0°C). Additional compressor heaters are not recommended. Adjustable Temperature Control The adjustable thermostat control is located on the left outside wall of the unit. Interior Thermometer Insulation The appliance comes with a thermometer to show internal temperatures. The thermometer is attached to the interior wall. The insulated space of this cabinet is sealed to maintain peak efficiency. Holes drilled in the cabinet may destroy that seal and damage electrical wiring located in the insulated space. Damaged electrical wiring or wet insulation caused by drilling will void the warranty. 3 Routine Maintenance Cleaning Between Defrostings After defrosting, wash inside and outside surfaces of the freezer with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 litres) warm water. Rinse and dry. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or any electrical parts. To avoid frequent defrosting, occasionally use a plastic scraper to remove frost. Scrape with a pulling motion. Never use a metal instrument to remove frost. Defrosting It is important to defrost and clean freezer when ¼ to ½ inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on upper part of the freezer due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the lid is opened. Remove food and leave the lid open when defrosting the freezer. Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. DO NOT wash removable parts in a dishwasher. Replace parts and food. To use the defrost drain, place a shallow pan beneath the drain outlet (Figure 1). Pull out the drain plug inside the freezer, and pull off the outside defrost drain plug (Figure 2). Defrost water will drain out. Check pan occasionally so water does not overflow. Replace the drain plugs when defrosting is completed. If the frost is soft, remove it by using a plastic scraper. If Power Failure Do not open freezer lid unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. If a power failure occurs, pack seven or eight pounds of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Dry Ice," "Dairies," or "Ice Cream Manufacturers" for local dry ice suppliers. Always wear gloves and use caution when handling dry ice. Pan Energy Conservation Measures Defrost drain plug The appliance is designed for efficiency with heavy foam insulation. However, there are things that the user can do to maintain the appliance in operating condition: 1. Do not operate the appliance any colder than necessary to maintain safe, product storage temperatures. 2. Make sure the appliance is located to prevent direct exposure to sunlight, air ducts, etc. 3. Keep the lid closed except for normal use. Inspect the lid often to see that it self-closes and the gasket is in good condition. 4. Do not overstock the product in the cabinet because it will block the normal air flow. 5. Have at least annual inspections by a qualified service company to see that the refrigerant charge is correct. 6. This appliance operates more efficiently in a cooler ambient than in a hot ambient. Try to maintain an ambient below 80°F (27°C) and 65% RH for maximum efficiency. Figure 1 Drain Plug Figure 2 the frost is glazed and hard, fill deep pans with hot water and place them on the freezer bottom. Close the freezer lid. Frost should soften in about 15 minutes. Repeat this procedure if necessary. 4 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM Before calling for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. This list includes common occurences that are not the result of defective workmanship or materials in this appliance. CAUSE CORRECTION FREEZER OPERATION Freezer does not run. Freezer runs too much or too long. • Freezer is plugged into a circuit that has a ground fault interrupt. • Temperature control is in the OFF position. • Freezer may not be plugged in, or plug may be loose. • House fuse blown or tripped circuit breaker. • Power outage. • Use another circuit. If you are unsure about the outlet, have it checked by a certified technician. • See Thermostat Settings Section. • Room or outside weather is hot. • It's normal for the freezer to work harder under these conditions. • It takes 24 hours for the freezer to cool down completely. • Freezer has recently been disconnected for a period of time. • Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. • Lid is opened too frequently or kept open too long. • Temperature Control is set too low. • Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. • Ensure plug is tightly pushed into outlet. • Check/replace fuse with a 15 amp time-delay fuse. Reset circuit breaker. • Check house lights. Call local Electric Company. • Warm food will cause freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached. • Warm air entering the freezer causes it to run more. Open the lid less often. • Turn control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. • Clean or change gasket. Leaks in the lid seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Interior Freezer temperature is too cold. • Temperature Control is set too low. • Turn the control to a warmer setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. Interior Freezer temperature is too warm. • Temperature Control is set too warm. • Lid is opened too frequently or kept open too long. • Large amounts of warm or hot food may have been stored recently. • Freezer has recently been disconnected for a period of time. • Turn control to a colder setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. • Warm air enters the freezer every time the lid is opened. Open the lid less often. • Wait until the freezer has had a chance to reach its selected temperature. • The external freezer walls can be as much as 30°F warmer than room temperature. • This is normal while the compressor works to transfer heat from inside the freezer cabinet. Louder sound levels whenever freezer is on. • Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and more stable temperatures. They require a high efficiency compressor. • This is normal. When the surrounding noise level is low, you might hear the compressor running while it cools the interior. Longer sound levels when compressor comes on. • Freezer operates at higher pressures during the start of the ON cycle. • This is normal. Sound will level off or disappear as freezer continues to run. Popping or cracking sound when compressor comes on. • Metal parts undergo expansion and contraction, as in hot water pipes. • This is normal. Sound will level off or disappear as freezer continues to run. Freezer external surface temperature is warm. • Freezer requires 24 hours to cool down completely. SOUND AND NOISE 5 PROBLEM CAUSE CORRECTION SOUND AND NOISE (Cont.) Bubbling or gurgling sound, like water boiling. • Refrigerant (used to cool freezer) is circulating throughout the system. • This is normal. Vibrating or rattling noise. • Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. • Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on floor when it is moved slightly. • Freezer is touching the wall. • Level the freezer by putting wood or metal shims under part of the freezer. • Ensure floor can adequately support freezer. Level the freezer by putting wood or metal shims under part of the freezer. • Relevel the freezer or move freezer slightly. WATER/MOISTURE/FROST INSIDE FREEZER Moisture forms on inside freezer walls. • Weather is hot and humid, which increases internal rate of frost build-up. • This is normal. • Interior needs to be cleaned. • Foods with strong odors are in the freezer. • Clean interior with sponge, warm water, and baking soda. • Cover the food tightly.
