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.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Appliance
1. Remove the exterior and interior packing. To remove any remaining tape or
glue, rub the area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue residue can also be
easily removed by rubbing a small amount of liquid dish soap over the
adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluid or abrasive
cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of
your refrigerator.
2. When moving the appliance, do not tilt it more than 45° from the upright position.
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.
Installing Your Appliance
WARNING: Keep flammable materials and vapors such as gasoline away from
the refrigerator.
 Place your appliance on a floor that is strong enough to support it when fully
loaded. To level your appliance, adjust the leg at the front of the appliance.
 To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, leave 8" of space on each
side, 4" between the back of the unit and the wall, and 12" above the unit.
 If you are installing the refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave sufficient space
on the hinge side to allow for the door to swing open.
 Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove,
heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight can affect the refrigerator's coating and
heat sources can increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient
temperatures may also cause the appliance to perform improperly.
 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.

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.
4

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.

It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be
provided. Use a receptacle that cannot be turned off with a switch or pull chain.

The use of extension cords is strongly discouraged.

This appliance requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60 Hz electrical outlet with
three-prong ground and a 15-amp fuse. To prevent accidental injury, the
power cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or
dangling.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning or removing a light
bulb, turn the temperature control to OFF and then disconnect the unit from
the electrical power source. When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator
to the power source and reset the temperature control to the desired setting.
Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This appliance has the capability of opening either from the left or the right side.
Should you desire to reverse the opening direction, follow these instructions.
CAUTION: To avoid injury to yourself and/or property, have someone assist you
during the door reversal process.
To access the lower hinge
assembly, tilt the refrigerator
backward. You should rest
it on something solid, e.g., a
chair, just below the top
panel.
DO NOT lay the appliance
completely flat as this may
damage the coolant system.
Remove both legs located
at the front of the cabinet:
adjustable leg on hinge side
and fixed leg on opposite
side.
Remove the screws holding the lower hinge assembly to the cabinet.
Remove the main door assembly from the refrigerator cabinet by opening the
door and pulling down.

Make sure the door assembly is properly aligned on the cabinet before tightening
lower hinge screws.
Re-install both legs (reversed from the original positions: adjustable leg on hinge
side and fixed leg on opposite side).
6
Leveling the Refrigerator:
If the refrigerator is not leveled during installation, the doors may not close or
seal properly, causing cooling, frost or moisture problems. The refrigerator must
be level in order to function correctly.
To level your appliance, turn the leveling leg clockwise to raise that side of the
unit or turn it counter-clockwise to lower that side.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator will take some
weight off the leveling leg, making it easier to make the adjustment.
OPERATING YOUR APPLIANCE
Temperature Control (Thermostat)
There is one control for the refrigerator and freezer and it is located above the
top shelf of the refrigerator compartment. When you first install your refrigerator,
set the thermostat knob at 3. Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely
before using it. It is best to wait 24 hours before adding food.
The thermostat knob controls the temperature. The higher the number setting,
the longer the compressor will run and the colder the resulting temperature.
When the thermostat is set to OFF, the refrigerator is not running.
NOTES:
 Turning the temperature control to the OFF 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.
7
Fresh Food Storage
Wrap and store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof material.
This prevents food odor and taste transfer within the refrigerator.
Type of food
Storage Suggestions
Fruit
Wash, let dry and store in the refrigerator
in plastic bags or in the crisper.
Leafy vegetables
Remove wrapping and trim or tear off
bruised and discolored areas, wash in
cold water and drain. Place in plastic bag
or plastic container and store in crisper.
Fish
Use fresh fish the same day as
purchased.
Meat
Store most meat in original wrapping as
long as it is airtight and moisture-proof.
Rewrap if necessary.
Leftovers
Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Plastic containers with tight lids can also
be used.
Frozen Food Storage
The freezer compartment is designed for storing frozen food and for freezing
food at home. Successful freezing depends on the correct packaging. When
closing the package, eliminate as much moisture as possible. Be sure the seal is
tight, otherwise, food odors and taste may transfer throughout the freezer and the
frozen food may dry out.
NOTES:
 When preparing foods to be frozen, consider sanitary precautions.
 Carefully select food you intend to freeze; it should be of adequate quality
and suitable for freezing.
 Foils and bags should be flexible enough to tightly wrap around the foods.
 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.
 Never put bottled food or drinks in the freezer compartment.
8

For best results, leave enough space in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments for air to circulate around the packages. Also, leave
enough room at the front so the doors can close tightly.
Defrosting Your Appliance
Refrigerator compartment: 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.
Freezer Compartment: Defrosting of the freezer must be done manually. When
the thickness of the frost layer in the freezer compartment reaches ¼", it is time
to defrost.
1. Turn the thermostat to the OFF position.
2. Remove all foods, ice cube tray and shelf or transfer to refrigerator
compartment.
3. Leave the freezer 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. Close the freezer 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.
Using Your Ice Cube Tray
1. 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.
2. Be sure the bottom of the tray is dry, otherwise it may stick to the floor of the
freezer.
3. The best method of releasing ice cubes from the tray is to hold the tray under
cold tap water for a second.
4. To eject ice cubes from the tray, place over an ice bucket and twist slightly.
9
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
The refrigerator should be cleaned at least once a month to prevent odors from
building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
To clean your refrigerator:
1. Turn the temperature control to OFF, unplug the appliance and remove the
food, shelves, crisper, etc.
2. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth to wash the inside with a solution of warm
water and baking soda. (Make the solution by adding about 2 tablespoons of
baking soda to a quart of water.) Do not use abrasive or harsh cleansers.
3. Hand wash, rinse and dry all surfaces thoroughly.
4. Wash the shelves and trays with a mild detergent solution. Plastic parts
cannot be washed in a dishwasher.
5. The outside of the appliance should be cleaned with a solution of mild
detergent in warm water.
6. The condenser coils in the back of the unit should be vacuumed when they
are dusty or dirty.
7. After cleaning, reconnect the appliance to its power source, reset the
thermostat and allow the unit to come to temperature. Reload the food
packages.
NOTES: Do not use cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or
cleaners containing petroleum on plastics and rubber parts.
Never use paper towels, window sprays, scouring cleansers or flammable
fluids on plastic parts as these can scratch or damage material.
Changing the Light Bulb
1. Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect it from the power source before
removing the bulb.
2. Replace the bulb with a 15-watt appliance bulb. Be sure to replace the bulb
with one of the same size and shape.
3. Reconnect the refrigerator to the power source.
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 doors are
opened. If the power will be off for a longer period of time, you need to take the
proper steps to protect your food.
10
Vacation Time
During long absences, remove all the food. Unplug your appliance, clean it and
leave the doors open slightly to avoid formation of condensation, mold and odors.
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 screw 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 doors 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 in the freezer increases energy consumption, so
defrost the freezer as soon as the layer is 1/4" thick.
