WARNING !
How to connect to electricity
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the ground prong from the power cord.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with
a grounding plug which mates with a standard
grounding wall outlet to minimize the possibility of
electric shock hazard from this appliance.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
If the outlet is a standard 2-prong outlet, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with the properly grounded wall outlet.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical circuit, which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate of the cooler.
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading building wiring circuits which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power cords that
have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not
use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage
along its length or at either end.
When moving the refrigerator away from the wall, be
careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
use of adapter plugs
(Adapter plugs are not permitted in Canada)
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use
of an adapter plug.
North America Use Only!
NEMA plugs
If you do not have the right outlet
have a certified electrician install
the correct power source.

Danger! Risk of child entrapment
proper disposal of the refrigerator
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the
past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous…
even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid
of your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions below
to help prevent accidents.
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator:
Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
CFC Disposal
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used
CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs are believed to harm
stratospheric ozone.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the
CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a qualified
service technician. If you intentionally release this CFC
refrigerant you can be subject to fines and imprisonment
under provisions environmental legislation.
use of extension cords
Warranty is void for any refrigerator that has been connected to an extension cord.

OWNERSHIP
To insure that your unit works properly from the
first day, it must be installed properly. We highly
recommend a trained refrigeration mechanic and
electrician install your equipment. The cost of
a professional installation is money well spent.
Before you start to install your unit, carefully
inspect it for freight damage. If damage is discovered, immediately file a claim with the delivery
freight carrier.

uncrating
Step 1
The following procedure is recommended for
uncrating the unit:
A. Remove the outer packaging, (cardboard and
bubbles or styrofoam corners and clear plastic).
Inspect for concealed damage. Immediately
file a claim with the freight carrier if there is
damage.
B. Move your unit as close to the final location as
possible before removing the wooden skid.
C. Remove door bracket on swinging glass door
models (see image 1-2). Sliding glass door
models contain shipping blocks (three for
each door). Remove the two styrofoam blocks
taped to the top of the door tracks (see image
3). The shipping blocks are orange in color
and by opening the door a little the blocks can
be removed (see images 4-6). Do not throw
the bracket or blocks away. For future cabinet
movement the brackets and blocks will need to
be installed so the glass door does not receive
any damage (see image for bracket and shipping
block removal).
Note:
Keys for coolers with door locks are located in
warranty packets.

B. Proper leveling of your cooler is critical to
operating success (for non-mobile models).
Effective condensate removal and door
operation will be effected by leveling.
C. The cooler should be leveled front to back and
side to side with a level.
D. Ensure that the drain hose or hoses are
positioned in the drain pan.
E. Free plug and cord from inside the lower rear of
the cooler (do not plug in).
F. The unit should be placed close enough to the
electrical supply so that extension cords are
never used.

Step 4
Securing Castors and Legs
To obtain maximum strength and stability of the
unit, it is important that you make sure each castor
is secure. Legs are hand-tightened securely against
the lower rail assembly, see image 4-5. The bearing
race on the castor and the top edge of the leg must
make firm contact with the rail.
Unit Leveling
Four leveling shims have been provided for
leveling castored units positioned on uneven
floors. Shims must be positioned between rail
end and bearing race.
A. Turn the bearing race counter-clockwise until
the cabinet is level. Level front to back and side
to side (diagonally).
B. Install the desired number of shims, making
sure the slot of the shim is in contact with the
threaded stem of the castor (see image 2).

Step 5
A. Before your new unit is connected to a power
supply, check the incoming voltage with a
voltmeter. If anything less than 100% of the
rated voltage for operation is noted, correct
immediately.
B. All units are equipped with a 7 ft. (2.1m) service
cord, and must be powered at proper operating
voltage at all times. Refer to cabinet data plate
for this voltage.
Warranty requires a sole use, dedicated circuit for
the unit.
WARNING
Compressor warranties are void if compressor
burns out due to low voltage.
WARNING
Power supply cord ground should not be
removed!
Note:
To reference wiring diagram - Remove front

A. The compressor is ready to operate. Plug in the
cooler.
B. Temperature control set at No. 4 position gives
refrigerators an approximate temperature of
35°F (2°C). Allow unit to function several hours,
completely cooling cabinet before changing the
control setting.
C. Excessive tampering with the control could
lead to service difficulties. Should it ever
become necessary to replace temperature
control, be sure it is ordered from your dealer or
recommended service agent.
D. Good airflow in your unit is critical. Be careful
to load product so that it neither presses against
the back wall, nor comes within four inches of
the evaporator housing. Refrigerated air off the
coil must circulate down the back wall.
9
NOTE:
If the cooler is disconnected or shut off, wait five
minutes before starting again.
RECOMMENDATION
Before loading product we recommend you run
your unit empty for two to three days. This allows
you to be sure electrical wiring and installation are
correct and no shipping damage has occurred.
Remember, warranty does not cover product loss!
REPLACEMENT PARTS
A record of the cabinet serial number of your
cooler is maintained indefinitely. If, at anytime
during the life of your cooler, be it two years or
twenty years, a part is needed, you may obtain
this part by furnishing the serial number to the
company from whom you purchased the cooler.

D. Pull out gently from cabinet.
Required Tools:
• Phillips Head Screwdriver
• 5/64" or 2 mm Allen Wrench
• T-7 Torx Wrench
NOTE:
Mechanical temperature controllers are affected
when functioning at high altitude. The cut-in and
cut-out temperatures will be colder than when
the controller functions closer to sea level.
A. Unplug the cooler.
B. Remove the screws that secure the temperature
control to the inset box at the lower left side of
the cabinet (when facing the front of the cabinet).
C. To make these adjustments it may be necessary
to remove the temperature control from the
housing.
E. For high elevation installations, it may be necessary to "warm-up" the set points. To make the
adjustment, insert the appropriate tool in each
adjustment screw and turn 1/4 of a revolution
clockwise (to the right). This procedure will
adjust both the cut-in and cut-out about 2°F
warmer.
F. Make sure to reconnect the wires to the proper
spade terminal when reinstalling.

costs. The condenser is accessible by removing the louvered grill on the front of
the cooler. Although your cooler uses a
minimum amount of electricity due to high
density insulation in the cabinet and doors,
it is very important to keep the condenser
clean. The cleaner the condenser, the less
the cooler will run. Cleaning of condensers
should be done when needed depending
upon the location of your cooler. Use compressed air to blow the dust and grime from
your condenser. A stiff brush will help. You
must be able to see through your condenser.
VOLTAGE
When your cooler was installed the installation person checked your wiring to see that
you had plenty of current to properly operate the refrigeration unit. Under no circumstances should you add additional loads between the source of power and the cooler.
Do not plug other electrical units into the
same wall outlet your cooler is plugged into
or plug electrical units on the same circuit.
Do not use an extension cord (as it will void
the warranty).
TO CLEAN THE CABINET
The exterior may be wiped clean with soap
and water. Use a good stainless cleaner on
the countertop and the doors. The interior
of the cooler should be cleaned periodically
and we recommend a mild solution of baking soda and water which will help reduce
any inherent odors. Do not use harsh
cleansers on any surface of the interior.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
A record of the cabinet serial number of
your cooler is maintained indefinitely. If, at
any time during the life of your cooler, be it
two years or twenty years, a part is needed,
you may obtain this part by furnishing the
serial number to the company from whom
you purchased the cooler.

stainless steel equipment care and
cleaning
CAUTION: Do not use any steel wool, abrasive or chlorine based products to clean stainless
steel surfaces.
Stainless Steel Opponents
There are three basic things which can break down your
stainless steel’s passivity layer and allow corrosion to form.
1) Scratches from wire brushes, scrapers, and steel pads
are just a few examples of items that can be abrasive to
stainless steel’s surface.
2) Deposits left on your stainless steel can leave spots.
You may have hard or soft water depending on what part of
the country you live in. Hard water can leave spots. Hard
water that is heated can leave deposits if left to sit too long.
These deposits can cause the passive layer to break down and rust your stainless steel. All deposits left from food prep or
service should be removed as soon as possible.
3) Chlorides are present in table salt, food, and water.
Household and industrial cleaners are the worst type of
chlorides to use.
8 steps that can help prevent rust on stainless
steel:
1. Use the correct cleaning tools:
Use non-abrasive tools when cleaning your stainless steel
products. The stainless steel’s passive layer will not be
harmed by soft cloths and plastic scouring pads. Step 2 tells
you how to find the polishing marks.
2. Clean along the polish lines:
Polishing lines or “grain” are visible on some stainless steels.
Always scrub parallel to visible lines on some stainless steels.
Use a plastic scouring pad or soft cloth when you cannot see
the grain.
3. Use alkaline, alkaline chlorinated or non-chloride
containing cleaners:
While many traditional cleaners are loaded with chlorides,
the industry is providing an ever increasing choice of nonchloride cleaners. If you are not sure of your cleaner’s
chloride content contact your cleaner supplier. If
they tell you that your present cleaner contains chlorides,
ask if they have an alternative. Avoid cleaners containing
quaternary salts as they can attack stainless steel, causing
pitting and rusting.
4. Water Treatment:
To reduce deposits, soften the hard water when possible.
Installation of certain filters can remove corrosive and
distasteful elements. Salts in a properly maintained water
softener can be to your advantage. Contact a treatment
specialist if you are not sure of the proper water treatment.
5. Maintain the cleanliness of your food equipment:
Use cleaners at recommended strength (alkaline, alkaline
chlorinated or non-chloride). Avoid build-up of hard stains by
cleaning frequently. When boiling water with your stainless
steel equipment, the single most likely cause of damage
is chlorides in the water. Heating any cleaners containing
chlorides will have the same damaging effects.
6. Rinse:
When using chlorinated cleaners you must rinse and wipe
dry immediately. It is better to wipe standing cleaning agents
and water as soon as possible. Allow the stainless steel
equipment to air dry. Oxygen helps maintain the passivity
film on stainless steel.
7. Hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) should never be used
on stainless steel.
8. Regularly restore/passivate stainless steel.
Recommended cleaners of stainless steel
for certain situations/environments
1. Soap, ammonia and detergent medallion applied with a
cloth or sponge can be used for routine cleaning.
2. Arcal 20, Lac-O-Nu Ecoshine applied provides barrier
film for fingerprints and smears.
3. Cameo,Talc, Zud First Impression is applied by rubbing
in the direction of the polished lines for stubborn stains and
discoloring.
4. Easy-off and De-Grease It oven aid are excellent for
removals on all finishes for grease-fatty acids, blood and burnton foods.
5. Any good commercial detergent can be applied with a
sponge or cloth to remove grease and oil.
6. Benefit, Super Sheen, Sheila Shine are good for
restoration / passivation.

IF THE COMPRESSOR WILL NOT RUN
1. If there is no voltage at the compressor
terminals, follow the wiring diagram and check
back from compressor to the power supply to
find where the circuit is interrupted.
2. If power is available at the compressor
terminals, and the compressor does not run,
check the voltage at the compressor terminals
while attempting to start the compressor.
If voltage at the compressor terminals is below
90% of the nameplate voltage, it is possible the
motor may not develop sufficient torque to start.
Check to determine if wire sizes are adequate,
electrical connections are loose, the circuit is
overloaded, or if the power supply is inadequate.
3. On single phase compressors, a defective
capacitor or relay may prevent the compressor
starting. If the compressor attempts to start
but is unable to do so, or if there is a humming
sound, check the relay to see if the relay contacts
are damaged or fused. The relay points should be
closed during the initial starting cycle, but should
open as the compressor comes up to speed.
Remove the wires from the starting relay and
capacitors. Use a high voltage ohmmeter to
check for continuity throughout the relay coil.
Replace the relay if there is not continuity. Use
an ohmmeter to check across the relay contacts.
Potential relay contacts are normally closed when
the relay is not energized, current relay contacts
are normally open. If either gives an incorrect
reading, replace the relay.
Any capacitor found to be bulging, leaking, or
damaged should be replaced.
Make sure capacitors are discharged before
checking. Check for continuity between each
capacitor terminal and the case. Continuity
indicates a short, and the capacitor should be
replaced.
Substitute a “known to be good” start capacitor
if available. If compressor then starts and runs
properly, replace the original start capacitor.
If a capacitor tester is not available, an ohmmeter
may be used to check run and start capacitors for
shorts or open circuits. Use an ohmmeter set to
its highest resistance scale, and connect prods to
capacitor terminals.
a) With a good capacitor, the indicator should
first move zero, and then gradually increase to
infinity.
b) If there is no movement of the ohmmeter
indicator, an open circuit is indicated.
15
c) If the ohmmeter indicator moves to zero,
and remains there or on a low resistance reading,
a short circuit is indicated. Defective capacitors
should be replaced.
4. If the correct voltage is available at the
compressor terminals, and no current is drawn,
remove all wires from the terminals and check
for continuity through the motor windings. On
single phase motor compressors, check for
continuity from terminals C to R, and C to S. On
compressors with line break inherent protectors,
an open overload protector can cause a lack of
continuity. If the compressor is warm, wait one
hour for the compressor to cool and recheck.
If continuity cannot be established through
all motor windings, the compressor should be
replaced.
Check the motor for ground by means of a
continuity check between the common terminal
and the compressor shell. If there is a ground,
replace the compressor.
5. If the compressor has an external protector,
check for continuity through the protector or
protectors. All external inherent protectors on
compressors can be replaced in the field.
IF THE MOTOR COMPRESSOR STARTS
BUT TRIPS REPEATEDLY ON THE
OVERLOAD PROTECTOR
1. Check the compressor suction and discharge
pressures while the compressor is operating. Be
sure the pressures are within the limitations of
the compressor. If pressures are excessive it
may be necessary to clean the condenser, purge
air from the system, replace crankcase pressure
regulating valve.
starting relay.
4. If all operating conditions are normal, the
voltage supply at the compressor terminals
balanced and within limits, the compressor
crankcase temperature within normal limits, and
the amperage drawn within the specified range,
the motor protector may be defective, and should
be replaced.
If the operating conditions are normal and the
compressor is running excessively hot for no
observable reason, or if the amperage drawn
is above the normal range and sufficient to
repeatedly trip the protector, the compressor has
internal damage and should be replaced.
IF THE COMPRESSOR RUNS BUT WILL
NOT REFRIGERATE
1. Check the refrigerant charge. Check the
evaporator surface to determine if it is evenly
cold throughout, or if partially starved. A lack of
charge may be indicated by light, fluffy frost at
the evaporator inlet. Add refrigerant if necessary.
2. Check the compressor suction pressure. An
abnormally low pressure may indicate a loss of
refrigerant charge, a malfunctioning capillary
tube, a lack of evaporator capacity possibly due
to icing or low air flow, or a restriction in the
system.
Often a restriction in a drier or strainer can be
identified by frost or a decrease in temperature
across the restriction due to the pressure drop in
the line. This will be true only if liquid refrigerant
is in the line at the restricted point, since any
temperature change due to restriction would be
caused by the flashing of liquid into vapor as the
pressure changes.
An excessively low suction pressure may indicate
a loss of charge.
Any abnormal restriction in the system must be
corrected.
Check condenser to be sure it is clean and fan
is running. Excessive temperatures on suction
and discharge line may also indicate abnormal
operating conditions.
3. Check the compressor discharge pressure. An
abnormally high discharge pressure can cause
a loss of capacity, and can be caused by a dirty
condenser, a malfunctioning condenser fan, or air
in the system.
2. Check the line voltage at the motor terminals
while the compressor is operating. The voltage
should be within 10% of the nameplate voltage
rating. If outside those limits, the voltage supply
must be brought within the proper range, or
a motor compressor with different electrical
characteristics must be used.
3. Check the amperage drawn while the
compressor is operating. Under normal operating
conditions, the amperage drawn will seldom
exceed 110% of the nameplate amperage.
High amperage can be caused by low damage,
defective running capacitors, or a defective
4. If the suction pressure is high, and the
evaporator and condenser are functioning
normally, check the compressor amperage draw.
An amperage draw near or above the nameplate
rating indicates normal compressor or unit may
have damaged valves.
An amperage draw considerably below the
nameplate rating may indicate a broken suction
reed or broken connecting rod in the compressor.
