INSTRUCTIONS
This Owner's Guide provides specific operating instructions
for your model. Use your refrigerator only as instructed in
this guide. These instructions are not meant to cover every
possible condition and situation that may occur. Common
sense and caution must be practiced when installing,
operating, and maintaining any appliance.
SAFETY
*
Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping
material immediately after the refrigerator is unpacked.
Children should never use these items to play. Cartons
covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or
stretch wrap may become airtight chambers, and can
quickly cause suffocation.
*
Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause
severe cuts, and destroy finishes if they come in
contact with other appliances or furniture.
Record Your Model and Serial Numbers
An empty, discarded ice box, refrigerator, or freezer is a
very dangerous attraction to children.
Record the model and serial numbers in the space provided
below. The serial plate is located on the upper left wall
inside the refrigerator.
Remove and discard any spacers used to secure the
shelves during shipping. Small objects are a choke
hazard to children.

Child entrapment and suffocation are not
problems of the past. Junked or

still dangerous -- even if they 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.

_'.,'l,_v_._:_nn_[_
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Do not store or use gasoline, or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Read
product labels for flammability and other warnings.
INFORMATION
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety
mechanisms in the design of this refrigerator will
operate properly.
*
Refrigerator must be plugged into its own 115Volt,
60 Hz., AC only electric outlet. The power cord of the
appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding
plug for your protection against shock hazards. It must
be plugged directly into a properly grounded threeprong receptacle. The receptacle must be installed in
accordance with local codes and ordinances. Consult a
qualified electrician. Do not use an extension cord or
adapter plug.
•
If voltage varies by 10% or more, performance of your
refrigerator may be affected. Operating refrigerator with
insufficient power can damage the compressor.
Allow space around the unit for good air circulation.
Leave a 3 inch (75 mm) space on all sides of the
refrigerator for adequate circulation.
• To prevent the refrigerator from being turned off
accidentically, do not plug unit into an outlet controlled
by a wall switch or pull cord.
Do not pinch, knot, or bend the cord in any manner.
[.,'_w,J;t_tl_[€'t OTHER
•
PRECAUTIONS
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the cord.
Always grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out from
the receptacle.
To avoid electrical shock, unplug the refrigerator before
cleaning and before replacing a light bulb.
NOTE:Turning the temperature control to OFF turns off the
compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light
bulb or other electrical components.
Installation
•
Do not operate refrigerator in the presence of explosive
fumes.
r!VLV_,!:;_II_[€
Avoid fire hazard or
electric shock. Do not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug. Do not remove
any prong from the power cord.
Grounding type
wall receptacle
NOTE: The exterior walls of the refrigerator may become
quite warm as the compressor works to transfer heat from
the inside. Temperatures as much as 30 ° F warmer than
room temperature can be expected. For this reason it is
particularly important in hotter climates to allow enough
space for air circulation around your refrigerator.
LEVELING
The refrigerator must have all bottom corners resting firmly
on a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded refrigerator. NOTE: It is Very Important for
your refrigerator to be level in order to function properly. If
the refrigerator is not leveled during installation, the door
may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing
cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
Power supply
cord with 3-prong
grounding plug
To Level Your Refrigerator:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a
carpenter's level to level the refrigerator from front-to-back.
Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2bubble higher, so
that the door closes easily when left halfway open.
This Owner's Guide provides specific operating instructions
for your model. Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this
Owner's Guide. Before starting the refrigerator, follow
these important first steps.

iNSTALLATiON
o
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet.
Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
o
For the most efficient operation, the refrigerator should
be located where surrounding temperatures will not drop
below 10 ° F (-12 ° C) or exceed 110 ° F (43 ° C). The
Freeze Control Feature is designed to automatically
maintain the selected interior refrigerator temperature
within these boundaries.

CLEANING
Wash any removable parts of the refrigerator interior, and
exterior with mild detergent and warm water. Wipe d ry.
Do not use harsh cleaners on these surfaces.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments,
which can scratch the appliance surface when removing
adhesive labels. Any glue left from the tape can be
removed with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or touch the residue with the sticky side of tape
already removed. Do not remove the serial plate.
_To
allow door to
close and seal properly, DO NOT let
food packages extend past the front
of shelves.
•
Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing
them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on moisture
build-up inside the unit.
•
Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings.
Remove as many items as needed at one time and
close the door as soon as possible.
COOL
DOWN
PERIOD
For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for the refrigerator to
cool down completely. The refrigerator will run continuously
for the first several hours.
TEMPERATURE
CONTROL
The temperature control is located inside the refrigerator. The
temperature is factory preset to provide satisfactory food
storage temperatures. However, the temperature control is
adjustable to provide a range of temperatures for your
personal satisfaction, if a colder temperature is desired, turn
the temperature control knob toward COLDEST and allow
several hours for temperatures to stabilize between adjustments.

REMOVAL
If door must be removed:
1. Gently lay refrigerator on its back, on a rug or blanket.
2. Remove two base screws and base panel. Remove wire
clips on bottom of cabinet.
3. Remove bottom hinge screws.
4. Remove plastic top hinge cover.
5. Remove screws from top hinge.
6. Remove top hinge from cabinet.
7. Remove doorand bottom hinge from cabinet.
8. To replace door, reverse the above order and securely
tighten all screws to prevent hinge slippage.
Cold Control
TILT-OUT
SHELF
This shelf is located inside on the refrigerator door and
provides additional storage space. To access an item, tilt
top of "basket" shelf down.
install the refrigerator in the coolest
part of the room, out of direct sunlight
and away from heating ducts or
registers. Do not place the refrigerator
next to heat- producing appliances
such as a range, oven or dishwasher.
Level the refrigerator so the door
close tightly.
Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air
vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer
and use more energy. Shelves should not be lined with
aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners
interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator
less efficient, which could cause food spoilage.
Tilt-Out

ADJUSTABLE
INTERIOR
SHELVES
Multi-position adjustable interior shelves can be moved to
any position for larger or smaller packages. The shipping
spacers that stabilize the shelves for shipping should be
removed and discarded.

two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 litres)
warm water. Rinse and dry. Wring excess water out of the
sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or
any electrical parts.
Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution
mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Rinse

the refrigerator, provides separate storage space for items
that are difficult to store on refrigerator shelves. To remove
the basket, pull out and lift up.

refrigerator temperature even when the refrigerator is
placed in an area where the surrounding temperature drops
down to 10 ° F (-12 ° C).
INTERIOR
