Energy Saving
ideas
The freezer 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 in the freezer. Overloading
the freezer 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 freezer. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the freezer.
Freezer baskets should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper
toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the freezer less
efficient.
Organize and label food to reduce lid openings and extended searches. Remove
as many items as needed at one time, and close lid as soon as possible.

clean the freezer. Secure all loose items, such as baskets, by taping them
securely in place to prevent damage, in the moving vehicle, secure freezer in an
upright position, and secure to prevent movement. Also protect outside of freezer
with a blanket, or similar item.
If a power failure occurs, frozen foods will stay frozen for at least 24 hours if the
freezer is kept closed. If the power failure continues, pack seven or eight pounds
of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Dry Ice,"
"Dairies," or "Ice Cream Manufacturers" for local dry ice suppliers. Always wear
gloves and use caution when handling dry ice.
If the freezer has stopped operating, see "Freezer does not run" in the Avoid
Service Checklist Section of this manual. If you cannot solve the problem, call an
authorized servicer immediately.
If the freezer remains offfor several hours, follow the directions above for the use
of dry ice during a power failure. If necessary, take the food to a local locker plant
until the freezer is ready to operate. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Frozen Food
Locker Plants."

expense. This list includes common occurrences that are not the result of
defective workmanship or materials in this appliance.
OCCURRENCE
SOLUTION
Freezer does not run
•
Check to ensure that freezer is not 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
Temperature Control section.
•
Freezer may not be plugged in or plug may be loose. Be sure plug is
tightly pushed into electrical outlet.
•
House fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped. Check / reset
circuit breaker or replace fuse with 15 amp time delay fuse.

harder under these conditions.
•
Freezer has recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer
requires 4 hours to cool down completely.
•
Large amounts of warm water or hot food have been stored recently.
Warm food will cause the freezer to run more until the desired
temperature is reached.
•
Lid is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the
freezer every time the lid is opened. Open the lid less often.
•
Freezer lid may be slightly open. See OCCURRENCE
•
Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer
setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize.
•
Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. Clean or
change gasket. Leaks in the lid seal will cause freezer to run longer in
order to maintain desired temperature.
Temperature inside freezer is too
cold
•
Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control to a warmer
setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize.
Temperature inside freezer is too
warm
•
Temperature control is set too warm. Turn the control to a colder
setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize.
•
Lid is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer
every time the lid is opened. Open the lid less often.

"Lid Problems"
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
•
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.
OCCURRENCE
SOLUTION
Loudersoundlevelswhenever
•
Modern freezers have increased storage capabilities 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 will level off or disappear as freezer continues to
run.
Popping or cracking sound when
compressor comes ON
•
Metal parts undergo expansion and contraction, as in hot water pipes.
This is normal. Sound will level off or disappear as freezer continues to
run.
Bubbling or gurgling
water boiling
•
Refrigerant (used to cool freezer) is circulating throughout the system.
This is normal.
•
Freezer is not level, tt rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly.
Level the unit. Refer to "Leveling" in the First Steps section.
•
Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on the floor when it is moved
slightly. Be sure floor can adequately support freezer. Level the
freezer by putting wood or metal shims under part of the freezer.
•
Freezer is touching the wall. Level the freezer or move freezer slightly.
Refer to "Leveling" in the First Steps section.
•
Weather is hot and humid, which increases internal rate of frost buildup. This is normal.
•
Lid is slightly open. See OCCURRENCE
•
Lid is kept open too long, or is opened too frequently. Open the Lid
less often.
Moisture forms on outside of
freezer
•
Lid is slightly open, causing the cold air from inside the freezer to meet
warm moist air from outside. See OCCURRENCE "Lid Problems".
Odor in freezer
•
Interior needs to be cleaned. Clean interior with sponge, warm water
and baking soda.
•
Foods with strong odors are in the freezer. Cover the food tightly.
•
Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. This
condition can force the cabinet out of square and misalign the lid.
Refer to "Leveling" in the First Steps section.
