Instructions
Proper Disposal of Your
Refrigerator/Freezer
Risk of child entrapment. Child entrapment and
suffocation are not problems of the past.
Junked or abandoned refrigerators or
freezer are still dangerous—evenifthey
will sit for “just a few days.” If you are
getting rid of your old refrigerator or
freezer, please follow the instructions
below to help prevent accidents.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR
OLD REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER:
For Your Safety

this or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other
warnings.
Child Safety
• Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately
after the freezer is unpacked. Children should never use these items for play.
Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may
become airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation.
• A child might suffocate if he crawls into a freezer to hide or play. Remove
the door of a freezer when not in use, even if you plan to discard the
freezer. Many communities have laws requiring you to take this safety
precaution.

Care and Cleaning
Defrosting
(continued)
It is important to defrost and clean freezer when 1/4 to 1/2 inch of frost has
accumulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on upper part of freezer due to
warm, moist air entering freezer when door is opened. Remove food and leave
door open when defrosting freezer.
• On upright models with a defrost drain (Figure 1), remove drain plug on the
insidefloorofthefreezerbypullingstraightout.Toaccessexternaldraintubeon
models with a base panel, first remove the two screws from the base panel.
Locate the drain tube near the left center under the freezer. Place a shallow pan
under the drain tube. Defrost water will drain out. Check pan occasionally so
water does not overflow. A 1/2 inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the

FREEZER DOES NOT RUN
This freezer must not be plugged into a circuit that has ground fault interrupt. If you are
unsure about the outlet, have it checked by a certified technician.
Temperature control is in the OFF position. See Setting the Temperature Control Section.
Freezer may not be plugged in, or plug may be loose. Be sure plug is tightly pushed into

Power outage. Check house lights. Call local electric company.
Freezer runs too much or too long.
Room or outside weather is hot. It is normal for the freezer to work harder under these
conditions.
Freezer had recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool
down completely.
Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. Warm food will cause the
freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached.
Door is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer every time the door
is opened. Open the door less often.
Freezer door may be slightly open. See Occurrence “Door Problems.”
Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several
hours for the temperature to stabilize.

Large amounts of warm or hot food might have been stored recently. Wait until the freezer
has had a chance to reach its selected temperature.
Freezer has recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool
down completely.
Temperature of external freezer
surface is warm.
SOUND AND NOISE
Louder sound levels whenever
freezer is on.
The exterior freezer walls can be as much as 30°F warmer than room temperature. This is
normal while the compressor works to transfer heat from inside the freezer cabinet.
Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and more even temperatures. They
require a high efficiency compressor. When the surrounding noise level is low, you might
hear the compressor running while it cools the interior.
Louder sound levels when compressor
comes on.
Freezer operates at higher pressures during the start of the ON cycle. This is normal. Sound
