Environmental Requirements
This model is intended for indoor/interior applications only
and is not to be used in installations that are open/
exposed to natural elements.
This unit is designed to operate between 50°F (10°C) and
100°F (38°C). Higher ambient temperatures may reduce
the unit’s ability to reach low temperatures and/or reduce
ice production on applicable models.
For best performance, keep the unit out of direct sunlight
and away from heat generating equipment.
In climates where high humidity and dew points are
present, condensation may appear on outside surfaces.
This is considered normal. The condensation will
evaporate when the humidity drops.
! CAUTION
Damages caused by ambient temperatures of
40°F (4°C) or below are not covered by the
warranty.

! WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD — Electrical Grounding
Required. Never attempt to repair or perform
maintenance on the unit until the electricity has
been disconnected.
Never remove the round grounding prong from
the plug and never use a two-prong grounding
adapter.
Altering, cutting or removing power cord,
removing power plug, or direct wiring can cause
serious injury, fire, loss of property and/or life,
and will void the warranty.
Never use an extension cord to connect power to
the unit.
Always keep your working area dry.
NOTICE
Electrical installation must observe all state and
local codes. This unit requires connection to a
grounded (three-prong), polarized receptacle
that has been placed by a qualified electrician.
The unit requires a grounded and polarized 115 VAC,
60 Hz, 15A power supply (normal household current). An
individual, properly grounded branch circuit or circuit
breaker is recommended. A GFCI (ground fault circuit
interrupter) is usually not required for fixed location
appliances and is not recommended for your unit because
it could be prone to nuisance tripping. However, be sure
to consult your local codes.
See CUTOUT DIMENSIONS for recommended receptacle
location.

INSTALLATION TIP
If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cutout
opening, adjust the rear legs to achieve a total unit rear
height of 1/8" (3 mm) less than the opening’s rear height.
Shorten the unit height in the front by adjusting the front
legs. This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the
opening. Readjust the front legs to level the unit after it is
correctly positioned in the opening.

manually defrost the unit.
Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.

High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can
also produce frost.
! CAUTION
DO NOT use an ice pick or other sharp
instrument to help speed up defrosting. These
instruments can puncture the inner lining or
damage the cooling unit. DO NOT use any type of
heater to defrost. Using a heater to speed up
defrosting can cause personal injury and
damage to the inner lining.
NOTICE
The drain pan was not designed to capture the
water created when manually defrosting. To
prevent water from overflowing the drain pan,
place towels or other absorbent materials over

To defrost:
1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Remove all products from the interior.

If there is excessive build-up of 1/4" or more,
manually defrost the unit.
Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.
High ambient temperature and excessive
humidity can also produce frost.

Product Liability
Field service technicians are authorized to make an initial
assessment in the event of reported damages. If there are
any questions about the process involved, the technician
should call U-Line for further explanation.
While inspecting for defects or installation issues, photos
should be taken to document any damages or issues
found.
During the assessment, if the service technician is able to
find the source of the damage and it can be resolved by
replacement of a part, the servicer is authorized to
replace the part in question. The part that caused the
damage must be returned to U-Line in its entirety. The
part must be clearly labeled with the serial number of the
unit it was removed from, the date, and the servicer who
removed the part.
If the service technician determines the damage is the
result of installation issues (water connection/drain, etc.),
the consumer would be notified and the issues shall be
resolved at the direction of the consumer.
If damage is evident and the service technician is unable
to find the source, U-Line must be contacted at 1-800799-2547 for further direction

Warranty parts will be shipped at no charge after U-Line
confirms warranty status. Please provide the model, serial
number, part number and part description. Some parts
will require color or voltage information.
If U-Line requires the return of original parts, we will
inform you when the parts order is taken. This
requirement will be noted on your packing list. A prepaid
shipping label will be included with the replacement part.
Please enclose a copy of the parts packing list and any
labor claims with your return. Please be sure the model
and serial numbers are legible on the paperwork. Tag the
part with the reported defect.
When ordering a non-warranty part, you will need an open
account and tax exemption on file at U-Line. Another
option would be to visit www.u-line.com to locate an
authorized parts distributor in your area.

THEORY OF OPERATION
Cooling process
Refrigerant is pumped from the compressor to the
condenser as a high pressure, high temperature vapor.
COMPRESSOR
CONDENSER
As the refrigerant cools in the high pressure condenser,
the vapor condenses to liquid. During this phase change,
a great amount of heat is rejected with the help of the
DRYER
CAPILLARY TUBE
EVAPORATOR
condenser fan.
The liquid then flows to the dryer where it is strained and
filtered.
From the dryer, the refrigerant flows through the capillary
tube which meters the liquid refrigerant to the evaporator.
The pressure of the refrigerant is reduced to the
evaporating or low side pressure.
The reduction of pressure on the liquid refrigerant causes
it to boil or vaporize until it reaches saturation
temperature. As the low temperature refrigerant passes
through the evaporator coil, it continues to absorb a lot of
heat, causing the boiling action to continue until the
refrigerant is completely vaporized. It is during this phase
that the most heat is absorbed (the cooling takes place) in
the refrigerator.
The refrigerant vapor leaving the evaporator travels
through the suction line to the compressor inlet. The
compressor takes the low pressure vapor and compresses
it, increasing both pressure and temperature. The hot,
high pressure gas is pumped out the discharge line and
into the condenser. The cycle continues.
