ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
Before moving your refrigerator to its desired location, it is important to check that the proper
electrical connection will be used.
Recommended grounding method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical supply is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an
outlet that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension cord.
NOTE: Be sure to unplug the refrigerator prior to installation, cleaning, or general maintenance
such as changing the light bulb.
PLACING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to move and/or install the refrigerator. Failure to do
so may cause back or other injury.
NOTE: The letters “OS” in the model number of your appliance indicate that it can be used in
outdoor settings. It has special insulation and a weather-resistant stainless steel body wrap.
Also, a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) is built into the line cord. In the event the
refrigerator is not operating, first check to see that the GFCI has not tripped, then press the
RESET button.
1. Choose a location for the refrigerator that has a strong, level floor. If such a place is
unavailable, be sure to adjust the rotating leg supports such that the refrigerator is always
kept level.
2. Your refrigerator needs at least ¼” (6.35 mm) of air space at the top and on the sides, and
2” (5.08 cm) at the rear to allow for proper air ventilation. Be sure that airflow under the
appliance is not blocked. If the refrigerator is installed next to a fixed wall, provide at least
2½ inches (6.35 cm) of room on the hinge side to allow for the door to swing open.
3. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Light will discolor the enamel finish. In addition, when placed
near a heat source such as stove or direct sunlight, the refrigerator will consume more
electricity. Similarly, avoid installing in relatively cold locations: do not install in a place
where the temperature will fall below 55°F (13°C).
4. Avoid moisture. If placed near a sink or water faucet, the evaporator will frost faster because
of the higher humidity.
WARNING:
EXPLOSION HAZARD. Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away
from the refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion or fire.

REFRIGERATOR FEATURES
Temperature Control Knob
The refrigerator’s temperature control knob is preset at the factory for
your convenience. When first installing your refrigerator, be sure that
the control is still in the mid-point setting as shown.
Adjusting the Control Knob
The mid-setting indicated in the section above should be ideal for regular use.
However, if you need to adjust the temperature, be sure to wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments. Check the temperature, and adjust the knob to the next higher setting to make
the refrigerator colder. To make the refrigerator less cold, adjust the control to the next lower
setting.
Refrigerator Shelves
 You can remove the shelf by lifting up the front and pulling it out of the shelf slot.
 You can replace the shelf by inserting it into the shelf slot and pushing it toward the back
of the compartment.
NOTE: Keep similar foods together on the same shelf. This helps to reduce the time the
refrigerator door is open and therefore save energy.
Important Information Regarding Glass Shelves:
Never clean the glass shelves with warm water when they are cold. The glass
may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as
bumping.
The refrigerator’s shelves use tempered glass, which is designed to shatter into
many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal.
Glass shelves are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.
Adjusting the Refrigerator Tilt
If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you would like the door to close more easily, you
can use the four refrigerator leveling legs to adjust the tilt of the unit.
Be sure that the refrigerator is in its final position when making adjustments to the tilt,
and that it is plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to move and/or install the refrigerator. Failure to
do so may cause back or other injury.

WARNING:




Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adaptor.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire or electrical shock.
Leveling leg
 Turning a leveling leg to the right will lower the refrigerator toward the position of the leg.
Likewise, turning to the left will raise the unit away from the leg.
 Several turns of the leveling legs may be required before the refrigerator tilt is properly
adjusted.
 Turning both front legs the same amount to the left will tilt the refrigerator to the rear. This
adjustment makes it easier for the door to close.
NOTE: It is easier to adjust the leveling legs if someone else pushes against the top of
the refrigerator to take the weight off the legs.
Refrigerator Sounds
After your new refrigerator has run for a while, you may notice some sounds being generated by
the unit. These are normal. Any hard surfaces surrounding the unit, such as the floor or
cabinetry, can make the sounds seem louder. The following list explains some of the sounds
you may hear, and their causes.
 Your refrigerator uses a high efficiency compressor and fans to keep your food items at
the desired temperature while minimizing energy usage. The fan and compressor may
therefore run for longer periods than your old refrigerator. You may also notice a pulsating
or high-pitched sound coming from the compressor or fans, as they adjust to optimize
performance.
 As refrigerant flows inside the cabinet, you may hear some rattling noises. This may also
be caused by items stored inside the cabinet.
 After each cooling cycle, you might hear a gurgling sound caused by the refrigerant
flowing in your refrigerator.
 When the refrigerator is defrosting, you might hear water running into the drain pan.
 Each time the refrigerator starts or stops running, you may hear some clicking sounds.

REFRIGERATOR CARE
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
NOTE: To prevent the buildup of odors, clean the refrigerator about once a month. Follow the
below procedures for cleaning:
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove parts such as shelves, etc. that can be taken out of the refrigerator.
3. Using a clean sponge or soft cloth, hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a mild detergent in warm water. DO NOT use abrasive or harsh
cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products. DO NOT
use harsh cleaning tools such as paper towels or scouring pads, as these can scratch or
damage the surfaces of the refrigerator.
4. For stainless steel and painted metal exterior surfaces, use a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. DO NOT use abrasive or harsh cleaners, or cleaners
containing chlorine, as these can scratch or damage the material. Using a soft cloth, dry
thoroughly.
5. To help with removing odors, you can use a mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs
to 1 qt of water) to wash the interior walls.
6. After cleaning, replace all of the parts that were removed from refrigerator.
7. The condenser coils, located behind the base grille, should also be cleaned regularly. This
may be as often as every other month. Cleaning the condenser coils may help reduce
how much energy the refrigerator uses.
 Remove the base grille (see “Removing / Replacing the Base Grill” section on page 9).
 When the condenser coils are dusty or dirty, use a vacuum cleaner with an extension
attachment.
 Replace the base grille.
8. After cleaning the refrigerator, plug in or reconnect power.
Replacing the Light Bulb
NOTE: The bulb should be exchanged with one of the same size, shape, and wattage, as not all
appliance bulbs are suited for your refrigerator.
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove the screw located at the back of the light shield with a Phillips screwdriver. By
pulling the light shield back, remove the tabs attached to the refrigerator, and detach the
light shield.
3. Replace the bulb.
4. To reattach the light shield, push the tabs back in. Align the holes and insert the screw,
tightening as needed.
5. Connect to power.

shift and rattle during the move.
5. Tape the doors shut and tape the power cord to the rear of the refrigerator.
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to move and/or install the refrigerator. Failure to do so
may cause back or other injury.
Important information about moving your refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the unit for cleaning or maintenance,
cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to prevent damaging your floor.
You should always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not
wiggle or “walk” the refrigerator when trying to move it, as this can cause floor
damage.
Reversing the Door Hinge (optional)
Required Tools: Phillips screwdriver
1. Disconnect power from the unit.
2. Remove each of the screws on the top of the unit. There should be a total of seven (3 on
the hinge side, 4 on the unhinged side). Be careful not to lose or discard the screws.
3. Remove the TOP HINGE and WASHER (see picture on next page) and set aside.
4. Lift the door straight up and off of the BOTTOM HINGE.
5. Remove the screws fastening the BOTTOM HINGE and COVER to the bottom of the
refrigerator cabinet. There are five screws total (4 for the hinge, 1 for the cover).

1. Open the refrigerator door.
2. Align both TABS into position, such that the base grille snaps into place.
3. Replace and tighten the two SCREWS.
DISPOSING OF A WORN-OUT APPLIANCE
 When an appliance finally wears out, dispose of it.
 Before you dispose of your old appliance, take the door or doors off but leave the shelves
and drawers in place so that children cannot easily climb inside.
 The refrigerating system of the appliance is filled with refrigerant and insulating substances
which should be separately recycled. Either have a licensed appliance repair company or
dealer remove the appliance or call your local recycling office for the appropriate disposal
information.
 For the sake of environmental protection, be careful not to damage the rear wall of the
appliance (the condenser unit or the tubes when moving the appliance) or any part of the
refrigeration system inside the appliance.
 This refrigerator is 100% CFC-free, but the coolant is under pressure and puncturing the
sealed system could be dangerous. The coolant used in the sealed system is non-toxic.
 Many older appliances may contain refrigerants that are harmful to the environment, and
should be recycled by a lawfully licensed company.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Many problems can be resolved without the need for a service call. Try the following list as a
reference to potential solutions of common problems.
Problems with the Refrigerator
PROBLEM: The refrigerator is not operating.
 Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
 Has a household fuse blown or a circuit breaker been tripped? Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit.
 Is the temperature control knob in the OFF position or incorrectly set? See Temperature
Control information on page 4.
PROBLEM: The motor is constantly running, or running too much
 Is it hotter than usual where the refrigerator is? At normal temperatures, the motor will
typically run between 40% and 80% of the time. The motor will run even longer when the
unit is in an unusually warm environment.
 Has a large amount of product been added to the appliance? The more that is added,
the longer it will take for the unit to cool down. During this process, the motor will run
longer.
 Is the door frequently opened? Warm air entering the refrigerator causes the motor to
run longer. Keep the door closed as much as possible.
 Is the control set correctly? See Temperature Control information on page 4.
 Is the door completely closed? Push the door firmly shut.
 Are the condenser coils dirty? This prevents proper air transfer, and causes the motor to
work harder. Clean the condenser coils. See the Cleaning Your Refrigerator section on
page 6, and refer to #7.
PROBLEM: The refrigerator temperature is too warm
 Have you just added a large amount of product to the refrigerator? This will warm the
interior of the unit until the unit is able to cool down to the correct temperature.
 Is the control set correctly? See Temperature Control information on page 4.
PROBLEM: There is excessive moisture inside the refrigerator
 Is the door opened frequently? If so, humidity from the room will enter the refrigerator
and cause moisture to build up. This will happen even more if the air in the room is very
humid.
PROBLEM: The door is hard to open
 Is the gasket dirty or sticky? Clean the gasket and the surfaces that it touches. Rub a thin
coat of paraffin wax on the gasket after cleaning.
