safety
is important
to us.
This guide contains safety statements under
warning symbols. Please pay special attention to these symbols and follow any instructions given. Here is a brief explanation of the
use of the warning symbol.
IMPORTANT
SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or
injury when using your freezer, follow these
basic precautions:
Read all operating instructions before
using your freezer.
*Child entrapment and suffocations are
not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned freezers are still dangerous,
even if they will “just sit in the garage for
a few days.”
If you are getting rid of your old
freezer, do it safely. Please read the
enclosed safety booklet from the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers. Help prevent accidents.
l
Never allow children to operate, play
with, or crawl inside the freezer.
l Never clean freezer
parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a
fire hazard or explosion.
l FOR YOUR
SAFETY l
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.

Please:
l Install and level the freezer
on a floor that
will
hold
the
weight,
and
in
an
area suitable
_
tor Its size and use.
l Do not install the freezer
near an oven,
radiator, or other heat source.
l Use the freezer
only in an area where the
temperature will not exceed 110°F
(43.3%) or drop below 55°F (13%).
l Keep the freezer
out of the weather.
l Connect
the freezer only to the proper kind
of outlet, with the correct electrical supply
and grounding. (See “Locating the proper
electrical supply” on page 5.)
l Do not load the freezer with food before it
has time to get properly cold.
l Use the freezer only to do what home
freezers are designed to do.
l Properly
maintain the freezer.
l Make sure the freezer
is not used by
anyone unable to operate it properly.
Also, if your freezer has a Consumer Buy
Guide Label, remove it, any packaging
materials, tape, and inside labels (except the
model and serial number label) before using
the freezer.
To remove any remaining glue:
l Rub briskly with thumb to make a ball,
then remove.
OR
l Soak area with liquid hand dishwashing
detergent before removing glue as
described above.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing
alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive
cleaners. These can damage the material.
See “Important Safety Instructions” above.
NOTE: Do not remove the Tech Sheet
located on the back of the freezer.

Choosing
the proper
location
Read the following items before choosing the
location for the freezer. See “Completing the
installation” below before sliding freezer into
place.
1. Pick a safe place, indoors, away from
flammables such as gasoline.
2. Check the strength of the floor. It should
hold the weight of a fully loaded freezer.
3. Allow at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) of air
space on both sides of the freezer and
2 inches (5 cm) between the back of the
freezer and the wall. Leave room above
the freezer to open the lid.
4. It should not be necessary to remove the
lid during installation. If, for any reason,
the hinges need adjustment, see the label
on the back of your freezer and contact
an authorized Roper service company.
Room to open Ild
NOTE: Do not cover the freezer with items
such as blankets, sheets, tablecloths, etc.
This reduces air circulation.
Completing
the installation
Level the freezer from side to side and front
to back so that the lid will seal properly. Use
shim(s) to level the freezer if necessary.
Installing
(on some
the defrost
models)
1. Remove defrost drain cover from the
literature package.
2. Push drain cover into drain hole

the temperature
Turn the control to 4. This setting is
designed to maintain the temperature at or
near 0°F (-17.8%) under normal operating
conditions.
Allow the freezer to cool 6 to 8 hours
before filling with frozen food. Let the freezer
cool overnight before adding large amounts
of unfrozen food. Never add more than 2-3
pounds of unfrozen food per cubic foot of
freezer space.

NOTE: When the freezer is first started, the
compressor will run constantly until the
cabinet is cooled. It may take up to 6 to 8
hours or longer, depending on room temperature and the number of times the
freezer door is opened.
After the cabinet is cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to keep
the freezer at the proper temperature.
The outside of your freezer may feel
warm. This is normal. The freezer’s design
and main function is to remove heat from
packages and air space inside the freezer.
This heat is transferred to the room air, so
the outside of the freezer may feel warm.

help reduce the hazard of child entrapment.
To lock or unlock the freezer, you must
hold the key in the lock while turning. The
lock is spring loaded, so the key cannot be
left in the lock.
If the key is lost, contact your Roper
dealer for a replacement. Always give the
complete model and serial number of your
freezer when requesting a replacement key.

Caring
for Your Freezer
Your freezer is designed to give you years of dependable service. However, there are a few
things you can do to ensure a long product life. This section will tell you how to care for your
freezer properly.
Defrosting
and cleaning
Defrost and clean your freezer when frost
has built up to about l/4 inch (6 mm) thickness. Complete defrosting and cleaning
should be done at least once a year. In high
humidity areas, a freezer may need more
frequent defrosting and cleaning. Do not use
abrasive cleaners on your freezer. Do not
use cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches, or cleaners containing
petroleum on plastic parts. Damage
can occur.

6.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Unplug freezer before cleaning or
defrosting.
Do not place electrical devices such
as fans or hair dryers in freezer
when defrosting.
Failure to do so can result in death
or electrical shock.
1. Turn Temperature Control to 0 and
unplug power cord.
2. Remove all frozen food. Wrap frozen food
in several layers of newspaper and cover
with a blanket. Food will stay frozen for
several hours.
OR
Store frozen food in a cooler, additional
refrigerator-freezer, or in a cool area.
3. For models with a defrost water
drain: Open the defrost water drain.
(See page 9.)

14.
NOTE: Check the drain pan frequently
to avoid water overflow. Have a second
pan handy for easier emptying of
drain pan.
For models without a defrost water
drain: Use a large sponge or plastic
baster to remove water from the freezer
bottom. You might want to have a pan
close by to wring the sponge or empty
the baster into.
Place pans of hot water in freezer with
lid open to speed melting. Directing air
from an electric fan into freezer will also
help. Do not place fan or any electrical
device in freezer.
Use a plastic scraper to remove frost.
Do not use an ice pick, knife, or other
sharp-pointed tool to defrost freezer.
Damage can occur.
Wipe water from walls with a towel or
sponge.
Wash the inside walls with a solution of
2 tablespoons (26 mg) baking soda to
1 quart (0.95 L) warm water.
Wipe and dry thoroughly.
Use a sponge, cloth, or paper towel and
mild detergent in warm water to clean
outside of freezer, door liner, and
gasket.
Wipe and dry thoroughly.
Wax painted metal surfaces outside of
freezer to provide rust protection.
NOTE: Do not use wax on plastic parts.
Wax may damage them.
For models with a defrost water
drain: Close the defrost water drain.
(See page 9.)
Replace all frozen food.
Plug in power cord and refer to “Setting
the temperature control” on page 7.

What to do during
power
1. Call the power company.
Ask how long power will be off.
2. Keep freezer closed if service is to be
interrupted 24 hours or less.
This will help food stay frozen.
3. If service is to be interrupted
longer
than 24 hours:
Remove all frozen food and store in a
frozen food locker.
OR
Place 2 Ibs. (0.9 kg) of dry ice in freezer
for every cubic foot of freezer space. This
will keep foods frozen for 2 to 4 days.
OR
If dry ice or a food locker is not available,
use or can perishable food at once.
Moving
Burn Hazard
Wear gloves when handling dry ice.
Failure to do so can result in burns.
NOTE: A full freezer stays cold longer than
a partly filled one. A freezer full of meat
stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods.
Food containing ice crystals may be safely
refrozen, but the quality and flavor of the
food may be affected.
Use refrozen food quickly. If the condition
of the food is poor, or you feel it is unsafe to
eat, dispose of it immediately.
care
Remove all frozen food and pack it in dry
ice. Unplug the freezer and clean it thoroughly. Tape the lid shut and tape electrical
cord to the cabinet.
