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. And 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, make sure the power line of the unit
is disconnected.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so can result
in electrical shock or death.
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.
FOLLOW WARNING CALL OUTS BELOW ONLY WHEN APPLICABLE TO YOUR MODEL
Use two or more people to move and install refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in back or other
injury.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, the front of the unit must be completely
unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 60°F (16°C) and below 90°F
(32°C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the element, such as wind, rain, water
spray or drips.
The refrigerator should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
aWarninga
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 Avanti Products service center.
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.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For
personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to
have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also
prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug
the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the
receptacle. 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 appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.
¾
EXTENSION CORD
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least
10 amperes.
¾
SURGE PROTECTOR
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very
susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges / outages;
it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you use. The
surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the appliance it is
connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector needed contact
a licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your
product warranty.
¾ Reversing the Door Swing of Your Appliance
This refrigerator-freezer has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit
is delivered to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening
direction, please call service for reversal instructions.

Freezing Fresh Foods
Proper use of the appliance, adequately packed food, correct temperature and taking into account
hygienic precautions will substantially influence the quality of freezing the food or storing of the
frozen foods.
This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food.
The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded.
Pre-packed commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen foods
manufacturer’s instructions for a three star frozen food storage compartment or home freezer.
Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are instructions on
the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.
Carefully select food you intend to freeze, it should be of adequate quality and suitable for freezing.
Use correct packaging and wrap it tight.
The packaging should be airtight and shouldn’t leak since this could cause substantial vitamin loss
and dehydration of foods.
Foils and bags should be soft enough to tightly wrap around the foods.
When preparing foods to be frozen, consider sanitary precautions.
Mark packages with following data: kind and amount of foods and the date of loading.
It is extremely important that the food is frozen as quickly as possible.
If the loading amount is too large, the quality of freezing is reduced which affects the quality of
frozen foods.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Cleaning Your Appliance
Turn the temperature control to "OFF", unplug the unit, and remove the food and baskets.
Wash the inside with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2
tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
Wash the baskets with a mild detergent solution.
The outside of the unit should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
To ensure the highest level of performance and efficiency periodic cleaning of the exterior fans and
or condenser coils is required to prevent the accumulation of dust, dirt, pet hairs, grease or other
foreign objects. Exterior fans that become clogged with foreign objects can result in the malfunction
of and/or damage to the cooling system of your unit.
Using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille, the open areas behind the grille,
surface area of the condenser coils, as well as the fan intake and output vents.
CAUTION
Failure to unplug the refrigerator-freezer could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
¾ Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your
refrigerator-freezer if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be
off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your food.
¾ Vacation Time
Short vacations: Leave the unit operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug the
power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door
open slightly: blocking it open if necessary

Moving Your Appliance
Remove all the food.
Securely tape down all loose items inside your unit.
Turn the leveling screws up to the base to avoid damage.
Tape the door shut.
Be sure the unit stays in the upright position during transportation.

Energy Saving Tips
The unit 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 them in the unit. Overloading the unit 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 unit. This cuts
down on frost build-up inside the freezer.
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.

injury.
