IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Before the refrigerator/freezer 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 this appliance, follow basic
precautions, including the following:







Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not
use an adaptor 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. Also, 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, unplug the
refrigerator or disconnect power. Failure to do so can result in electrical
shock or death.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
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.
DANGER: Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned appliances are still dangerous, even if they will "just sit in the
garage a few days."
 Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer, 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.

Instruction manual
3. Before connecting the appliance 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.
4. Clean the interior surfaces with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
5. In case the interior accessories are not arranged correctly, reposition them as
shown in Location of Parts on page 5.
Installation of Your Appliance
 Place your appliance on a floor that is strong enough to support the unit when
it is fully loaded. To level your appliance, adjust the legs at the front of the
appliance.
 Leave 5" of space between the back and sides of the appliance and other
surfaces, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.
 Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove,
heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the refrigerator's coating and
heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient
temperatures may also cause the appliance not to perform properly.
 Avoid locating the appliance in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will
cause frost to form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent
defrosting of the appliance.
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 technician.
6

This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord
of this appliance 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.

Plug the appliance into an exclusive, properly installed grounded wall outlet.
Any questions regarding power and/or grounding should be directed toward a
certified electrician or an authorized Summit service center.

The use of extension cords is not recommended.

This appliance requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60 Hz electrical outlet with
three-prong ground. To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured
behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling.
Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This refrigerator has the capability of opening either from the left or the 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 Summit Customer Service at
1-800-932-4267 for reversal instructions.

OPERATING YOUR APPLIANCE
Temperature Control
 Your appliance has only one control for reguating the temperature in the fresh food and
freezer compartments. The temperature control, or thermostat, is located on the upper
right hand side of the fresh food section.
 The range of the temperature control is from
1 (the warmest) to 7 (the coldest). The first
time you turn the unit on, set the control to its maximum setting, which is 7.
 After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best
suits your needs. A setting of 4 or 5 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 appliance.
 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.
Interior Light
When you open the door to the refrigerator compartment, the light will be ON
automatically. When you close the door, the light goes OFF automatically.
Defrosting Your Appliance
When? For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption,
defrost the freezer compartment when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive,
or 1/4" thick. There is no need to defrost the refrigerator compartment, because
ice depositing on the inner back wall is defrosted automatically. Ice deposits on
the inner back wall during compressor operation; later on, when the compressor
is not operating, ice defrosts. Water droplets collect and drain through an outlet
in the inner back wall into the drain pan situated above the compressor, where
the water evaporates.
How?
1. Reset the thermostat to the OFF position, 0, and disconnect the power
supply.
2. Remove the frozen food from the appliance and place it in a cooler to
protect the food.
8
3. Leave the door open for a while so that you can easily scrape off the frost.
Use a plastic scraper but be careful not to damage the inner surfaces of
the freezer.
4. Wipe up the scraped ice before it is completely defrosted.
5. Reconnect the power and close the door. Set the thermostat to its original
position.
6. Allow time for the freezer to reach its normal temperature, then reload the
food.
CAUTION: Do not use boiling water for defrosting because it may damage the
plastic parts. In addition, never use a sharp or metallic instrument to
remove frost as it may damage the cooling system and will void the
warranty. We recommend using a plastic scraper.
Freezer Compartment
 Proper use of the appliance, adequately packed food, correct temperature
and hygienic precautions will substantially influence the quality of freezing
food or storing frozen food.
 Carefully select food you intend to freeze; it should be of adequate quality and
suitable for freezing.
 Use correct packaging and wrap it carefully.
 The packaging should be airtight and shouldn't leak since this could cause
substantial nutrition loss and dehydration of foods.
 Foils and bags should be flexible enough to tightly wrap around the foods.
 When preparing foods to be frozen, consider sanitary precautions.
 Mark packages with the following data: kind and amount of food and date of
loading.
 It is most important that the food be frozen as quickly as possible.
 If the loading amount is too large, the quality of freezing is reduced which in
turn affects the quality of the frozen foods.
Using Your Ice Cube Tray
 Recommended thermostat setting for ice making is the
maximum setting, 7.
 Fill the ice cube tray two-thirds full with cold water or with
any liquid suitable for freezing and place the tray on the
floor of the freezer to freeze properly.
 Be sure the bottom of the tray is dry, otherwise it may stick
to the floor of the freezer.
 The best method of releasing ice cubes from the tray is to
hold the tray under cold tap water for a second.
 To eject ice cubes from the tray, place over an ice bucket and twist slightly.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Appliance
1. Turn the temperature control to 0, unplug the appliance and remove the food,
shelves and trays.
2. Wash the inside with a solution of warm water and baking soda. The solution
should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
3. Wash the shelves and trays with a mild detergent solution. Plastic parts
cannot be washed in a dishwasher.
4. The outside of the appliance should be cleaned with a solution of mild
detergent in warm water.
5. The condenser coils in the back of the unit should be vacuumed when they
are dusty or dirty.
6. Clean the drain pan on the refrigerator compressor. Do not remove the drain
pan.
7. After cleaning, reconnect the appliance to its power source and reload the
food packages.
Changing the Light Bulb
1. Unplug the AC power cord from the wall.
2. Squeeze the tabs at the top and bottom of the
light bulb cover simultaneously.
3. Remove the light bulb cover.
4. Unscrew the bulb.
5. Replace with a 10-watt bulb that is the same
shape and size.
6. Replace the light bulb cover.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is
opened. If the power will be off for a longer period of time, you need to take the
proper steps to protect your food.
Vacation Time
During long absences, remove all the food. Unplug your appliance, clean it and
leave the door open slightly to avoid formation of condensation, mold and odors.
10
Moving Your Appliance
1. Remove all the food and disconnect the unit from the power source.
2. Securely tape down all loose items inside your appliance.
3. Turn the leveling screws up to the base to avoid damage.
4. Tape the doors shut.
5. Be sure the appliance stays in the upright position during transportation.
Energy Saving Tips
 The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from
heat-producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
 Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance.
Overloading the appliance forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that
freeze too slowly may lose quality or spoil.
 Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them
in the appliance. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the appliance.
 Appliance storage bins and shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil,
wax paper or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making
the appliance 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.
 Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is wet and
hot.
 Every so often, check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated.
 A layer of ice and frost increases energy consumption, so clean the appliance
as soon as the layer is 1/4" thick.
