IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Before the refrigerator is used, it must be properly positioned and installed
as
described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the risk
of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the refrigerator, follow basic
precautions, including the following:








Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter, and
do not use an extension cord.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line of the
unit is disconnected.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so can
result in electrical shock or death.
Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your refrigerator unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators are still dangerous, even if they will "just sit in the 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.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Refrigerator




Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
Instruction manual
2 refrigerator shelves
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 leg at the front of the refrigerator.
Allow 5 inches of space at 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. Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also cause the refrigerator not to
perform properly.
Avoid locating the refrigerator in moist areas.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before
placing food into the refrigerator.
When installing the unit on a table or countertop, keep the following in mind:

Surface (countertop) is flat, level, and strong enough to support the unit once it is fully loaded.

Surface is wide enough to accommodate the unit without any overhang.

Surface is deep enough to accommodate the unit when the door is opened to 90º.
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 service center.

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 service center.
4

This refrigerator should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this refrigerator
is equipped with a three-prong plug that mates with standard three-prong wall outlets to minimize
the possibility of electrical shock.

This refrigerator requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.

Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord
supplied.

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.

The use of an extension cord is not recommended.
OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Setting the Temperature Control

Your unit has only one control for regulating the temperature in the compartment. The
temperature control, or thermostat, is located on the upper right hand side of the compartment.

The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to 5.

The range of the temperature control is from position 0 to 5. After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the
temperature control to the setting that best suits your needs. The setting of 3 should be
appropriate for home or office use.

To turn the appliance off, turn the temperature control to 0.
NOTES:
 Turning the temperature control to the 0 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
About Defrosting
This appliance requires no manual defrosting. During the operation of the compressor, ice will build
up along the cold rear wall (the evaporator plate is behind the wall). During the compressor’s offcycle, the ice will melt, drip down, and collect in a tray above the compressor, where the
compressor’s heat evaporates the water. If you notice excessive ice build-up on the rear wall, try
setting the temperature slightly higher (i.e., a lower setting of the thermostat). Also, be sure that the
door gasket is sealing well.
Cleaning Your Refrigerator





Turn the temperature control to 0, unplug the refrigerator, and remove the food, shelves, and any
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. Rinse well
and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning the area of the controls, or any
electrical parts.
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
1. Remove all the food.
2. Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.
3. Turn the leveling screw up to the base to avoid damage.
4. Tape the door shut.
5. Be sure the refrigerator stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect
the outside of the refrigerator with a blanket or similar item.
Energy Saving Tips

The refrigerator should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing
appliances, and out of direct sunlight.

Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
6
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 shelves 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.
