Proper Disposal of Your
Refrigerator/Freezer
DANGER Risk of child entrapment.
C h i l d e n t r a p m e n t a n d suffocation are not
problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators or freezer are still dangerous — even
if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting
rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow
the instructions below to help prevent accidents.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY
YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR/
FREEZER:
The information contained within this Owner's Guide
will instruct you on how to properly operate and care
for your product. Please read through the information
contained in your literature pack to learn more about
your new appliance.
• Remove doors.
• Leave shelves in
place so children
may not easily
climb inside.
Record Your Model and Serial Numbers
Record the Model No. and Serial No. of this appliance
in the space provided below.

Register Your Product
The self-addressed PRODUCT REGISTRATION CARD
(shown above) should be filled in completely, signed
and returned to the address provided.
Important Safety Instructions
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance. Read product labels for flammability and
other warnings.
• Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical
rating. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
