IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
Before the appliance is used, it must be properly positioned and installed
as described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the
risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the appliance, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
• Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter,
and do not use an extension cord.
• It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your appliance, be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
• Never clean appliance 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 appliance or disconnect the 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 appliance unless it is specifically
recommended in this material. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
• Use two or more people to move and install the appliance. Failure to do so can result in back
or other injury.
• To ensure proper ventilation for your appliance, 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 elements, such as wind,
rain, water spray or drips.
• The appliance should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
• The appliance must be installed with all electrical connections in accordance with state and
local codes. A standard electrical supply (115V AC only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in

Installation Instructions
Before Using Your Appliance:
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Before connecting the unit to a power source, let it stand for approximately 2 hours.
This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling
during transportation.
• Remove the crisper, drip tray and shelves and clean them and the interior surfaces of
the unit with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing the Refrigerator-Freezer:
• Place the unit on a floor that is strong enough to support the appliance when it is fully
loaded. To level the unit, adjust the two leveling legs at the front.
• Models CT661 and CT663B are designed to be free-standing only, and should not be
recessed or built in. When installing, allow at least 5 inches of space at the sides and
top of the unit and 2 inches at the rear, which will allow the proper air circulation to
cool the compressor and condenser.
• This appliance is supplied with spacers that have to be mounted onto the condenser
tube to make sure there is sufficient clearance between the appliance and the wall.
4
• Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (oven, heater, radiator,
etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase
electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also affect the
unit's performance.
• Avoid locating the unit in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to
form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent defrosting of the freezer
compartment.
• Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall outlet. Any
questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified
electrician or authorized service center.
Electrical Connection:
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power
cord is damaged, have it replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with a standard three-prong wall outlet 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 unit requires a standard 115-volt AC/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.
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.
To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured behind the unit and not left
exposed or dangling.
The unit 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 prevents overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. Never unplug the unit by pulling on the power cord.
Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace
immediately any power cord that has 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 unit, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord:
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

Reversing the Door Swing:
If you find the direction of opening the door of the appliance inconvenient, you can
change it. Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared at the factory.
This appliance can be opened from either the right side or the left. By default, the door
hinge is on the right side. If you prefer it on the left, please follow these instructions:
1. Take off the upper hinge cover from the door and remove the screws that hold the top
hinge.
2. Lift the hinge straight up to free the hinge pin from the socket in the top of the door.
3. Lift the door up and away to free its bottom socket from the hinge pin.
4. Remove the screws to the bottom hinge.
5. Remove the decorative caps from the opposite side and plug the holes from the
original side with the decorative caps.
6. Move the bottom hinge to the opposite side and tighten the screws. Use any lock
washers or nuts if they were installed in the original installation.
7. Replace door onto the hinge pin on the bottom hinge. Place top hinge pin into door.
Insert screws into the top hinge and tighten.
8. Check the gasket. It should not be creased and should seal well.
Door Handle Installation:
The door has two screw holes on each side, allowing you to install a handle (included). To
do so, align the handle with the screw holes on the side you prefer. Fix the handle in place
with the included screws, then cover the screw heads with the handle seal (included).

Changing the Direction of Door Opening on the Low Temperature Compartment:
• Unscrew the blocking element and the hinge of the low temperature compartment
and take off the door.
• Plug the holes with plastic caps provided.
• Turn the door 180° and replace it on the opposite side of the low temperature
compartment. Fix the hinge and the blocking element of the door (position of holes
already provided).
Operating Your Refrigerator-Freezer
Temperature Control:
• A unique dual evaporator system separately cools the refrigerator while keeping the
•
•
•
•
•
•
freezer at 5°F. (Ice cream and other food items in the freezer
stay frozen and free of freezer burn.)
The refrigerator temperature is controlled with a thermostat
knob located inside the unit, towards the upper right-hand
corner. Turn the knob clockwise from the STOP (0) position
toward the higher numbers for colder temperatures. Higher
settings on the knob (higher numbers) mean lower
temperatures (colder) in the refrigerator.
On the coldest settings, temperatures in some spots of the refrigerator compartment
may drop below 32°F. Use higher thermostat settings only when required or
recommended. When the ambient temperature is normal, we recommend a medium
setting.
Changes in the ambient temperature affect temperature in the refrigerator
compartment so choose an appropriate setting of the thermostat knob, depending on
ambient conditions.
In the STOP (0) position, the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is
switched off), yet the power supply is not interrupted (the light goes on when you
open the refrigerator door).
The temperature in the refrigerator compartment also depends on how often you
open the door.
In all small refrigerators and freezers without interior fans, temperatures are coldest
near the bottom, and occasionally near the rear. Place contents accordingly. It is best
not to operate these units mostly empty. If temperatures are erratic, try putting some
water bottles or freezer packs inside to create a load for the compressor.

NOTES:
1. For best storage, be sure not to over-pack and assure the freezer door closes fully.
2. The glass shelves are adjustable. These shelves stop short an inch before the back
wall, which is essential for air flow and the proper operation of the automatic defrost
system. Do not block these gaps.
3. The interior light on this unit is controlled by a plunger type switch, so that the light
comes on automatically when the refrigerator door is opened.
4. If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes
before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the unit will
not start.
Defrosting Your Appliance:
This appliance combines a manual defrost freezer section and an automatic defrost
refrigerator section. The refrigerator compartment defrosts itself, but when frost builds to
½ inch in the freezer compartment, defrost carefully according to this procedure:
1. Remove contents from the entire unit, taking care that frozen items do not begin to
thaw. Set the thermostat to STOP (0).
2. Unplug the appliance. Defrosting is accelerated if the doors are left open.
3. Melting ice will drain into the drip tray below the freezer compartment. Empty this as
needed.
4. Use a sponge or toweling to remove water and melting ice from the freezer floor. After
the frost or ice has melted, dry the interior of the freezer compartment thoroughly.
5. Restart the appliance by plugging it in and turning the thermostat to the desired
position. Once it is cold, return contents to the freezer and refrigerator sections.
CAUTION: Do not use boiling water or an electric device such as a hair dryer to help
speed up the defrosting process because this could damage the plastic parts of
the unit. In addition, never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost as it
may damage the cooling coils and will void the warranty. We recommend using a
plastic scraper.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning Your Appliance:
1. Unplug the appliance, turn the thermostat to STOP (0) and remove all contents,
including shelves, drip tray and crisper.
2. Wash the inside surfaces with a solution of lukewarm water and vinegar. Wipe dry
with a clean, soft cloth.
3. Wash the shelves, drip tray and crisper with a mild detergent solution, then rinse and
dry thoroughly.
4. Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and
wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the
temperature control or any electrical parts.
6. From time to time, wipe the condenser on the rear wall with a soft
non-metallic brush or vacuum cleaner.
7. After you have cleaned the appliance, reconnect it to the power
supply, reset the thermostat and return all contents to their place.
CAUTION: Failure to unplug the unit could result in electrical shock or
personal injury.
Power Failure:
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your appliance 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 frozen and chilled items.
Vacation Time:
During long absences, remove all contents. Unplug the appliance, clean it and leave the
doors open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold or odors.
Moving Your Appliance:

Remove the contents.
Securely tape down all loose items inside your unit.
Turn the leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.
Tape the door shut.
Be sure the appliance stays secure 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.
• Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is damp and hot.
Once you open the door, close it as soon as possible.
• Occasionally check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate air circulation
behind the appliance).
• Set the thermostat from higher to lower settings as soon as possible (depends on
how loaded the appliance is, ambient temperature, etc.).
• Before loading items into the unit, be sure they have cooled to ambient temperature.
• A layer of frost and ice increases energy consumption, so defrost the freezer as soon
as the layer is 1/2" thick.

Troubleshooting
When using this appliance, you may come across some problems that in many cases
result from improper handling and can easily be eliminated.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
The appliance fails to operate after being connected to the power source.
• Check whether the power supply is active and that the thermostat is not set to the
STOP (0) position.
The compressor is running continuously.
• The door was opened frequently or it was left open too long.
• The door is not properly closed (the door may sag, the gasket may be dirty or
damaged).
• The power supply has been interrupted for a long period of time.
• The appliance may have been overloaded with items above room temperature.
• There may be inadequate ventilation of the compressor and condenser. (Assure
there is adequate air circulation behind the appliance and wipe the dust from the
condenser.)
Noise
Cooling in refrigeration appliances is enabled by the refrigerating system with
compressor, which produces noise. How noisy the appliance is depends on where it
is placed, how it is used and how old the appliance is.
• During the operation of the compressor, the noise of liquid is heard and when
the compressor is not operating, the refrigerant flow is heard. This is a normal
condition and has no influence whatsoever on the lifetime of the appliance.
• After starting the appliance, the operation of the compressor and the refrigerant
flow may be louder. This does not mean that something is wrong. Gradually
the noise is reduced.
• Sometimes a louder noise is heard, which is unusual for the appliance. This
noise is often a consequence of improper placement of the unit. (The unit
should be placed and leveled firmly on a solid base and it should not touch the
wall or cabinets standing next to it.)
