IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using your appliance,
follow these basic precautions:
 Read all instructions before using the appliance.
 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.
 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
manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
 Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
 Use two or more people to move/install the refrigerator. 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 61 F (16 C) and below 95 F (35 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 accordance with the National
Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
 Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of the appliance.
 The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amps.
 It is important for the appliance to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to make several
adjustments to level it.
 Although the unit has been tested at the factory, due to transit and storage, you should clean the appliance
before use.
 Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These cleaners may damage or
discolor the interior.
 Do not use this apparatus for other than residential purposes.
 This appliance is CFC- and HFC-free and contains small quantities of Isobutane (R600a) which is
environmentally friendly, but flammable. It does not damage the ozone layer, nor does it increase the
greenhouse effect. Care must be taken during transportation and setting up of the appliance that no parts of
the cooling system are damaged. Leaking coolant can ignite and may damage the eyes.
 In the event of any damage:
- Avoid open flames and anything that creates a spark,
- Disconnect from the electrical power line,
- Air the room in which the appliance is located for several minutes, and
- Contact the Service Department for advice.
 The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it should be installed in. In the event of a
leakage, if the appliance is in a small room, there is the danger of combustible gases building up. For every
ounce of coolant, at least 325 cubic feet of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance
is stated on the data plate on the back of the appliance. It is hazardous for anyone other than an authorized
Service Person to carry out servicing or repairs to this appliance.
 Take serious care when handling, moving, and using the appliance to avoid either damaging the refrigerant
tubing or increasing the risk of a leak.
 Replacing component parts and servicing shall be done by factory authorized service personnel so as to
minimize the risk of possible ignition due to incorrect parts or improper service.

DANGER! Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances are still
dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
 Before you throw away your old refrigerator or any appliance: Remove the door. Leave the
shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
 Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
- SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Refrigerator
 Remove the exterior and interior packing.
 CAUTION: After unpacking you MUST allow this appliance to stand upright for at least 2 hours to allow
the lubricant and refrigerant to drain back into the compressor and stabilize. Failure to do so may
adversely affect performance and the lifetime of this unit.
 Clean the interior surfaces with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installation of the Appliance
 This refrigerator is designed for free standing or built-in (fully recessed) installation. If free standing,
the unit should have at least 4” of clearance at both sides, at the top and at the back to allow for
adequate ventilation. If it is built-in, leave 3/16” at both sides, 1/16” at the top and 2” at the rear. Be
sure that airflow under the refrigerator is not blocked.
 Place the refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level your
appliance, adjust the front leveling legs at the bottom.
 Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.).
Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption.
Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform properly.
 Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
 Plug the appliance into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall outlet. Do not under any
circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning
power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified and authorized products service center.
Reversing the Door Swing
This appliance 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
follow the instructions below. To make the reversal, you will find two hardware pieces in a plastic bag inside
the appliance: the top left hinge and the bottom left hinge. The bottom support bracket is used for both
sides.
1. Carefully lay the appliance on its back. Use cushioning to protect the floor and appliance.

OPERATING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Control Panel
The refrigerator should be placed where the ambient temperature is between 50 and 95°F (10 to 35°C). If
the ambient temperature is above or below this range, the performance of the unit may be affected. For
example, placing your unit in extremely cold or hot conditions may cause the interior temperature to
fluctuate.

NOTES:

The temperature setting can be adjusted from +2°C to +8°C (36°F to 46°F).

To view the “set” temperature anytime, press
flash in the LED display for 5 seconds.

This appliance is equipped with a Memory IC – should there be a power interruption, the unit
will automatically recover the last setting.

When you use the appliance for the first time, or restart it after it has been shut off for a long
time, there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one
indicated on the display. This is normal and due to the length of inactivation time. Once the
appliance has been running for a few hours, everything will be back to normal.

The temperature inside the cabinet may vary slightly depending on whether stored items are
located in the upper/middle or lower section.

You may notice condensation on the outer surface of the door. This occurs when water vapor
from the air contacts the cold surface of the door and the vapor condenses on the door, causing
a fogging effect. In extreme situations, water can even drip off the door, indicating excessive
humidity in the environment.

If the unit is unplugged or turned off, or if there has been a power failure, you must wait 3 to 5
minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the appliance
will not start.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Appliance
1. Turn off the power, unplug the appliance, and remove all items including shelves and racks.
2. Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should consist
of about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
3. Wash the shelves with a mild detergent solution.
4. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning the area of the controls or any
electrical parts.
5. Wash the exterior of the cooler with a warm solution of mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe
dry with a clean soft cloth.
Defrosting
Defrosting of the inside the appliance occurs automatically during operation. Approximately every 8 hours,
the compressor will stop running for about 30 minutes. During defrosting the temperature will be higher
than you set. The defrost water is collected by the evaporating tray above the compressor and evaporates
automatically.
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 your power is going to be off for a
longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your contents.
Vacation Time
Leave the appliance operating during vacations of less than three weeks. If you turn off the appliance for
extended periods, leave the door slightly ajar to prevent odor building up inside.
Transporting Your Appliance
If you need to move your appliance once the box has been discarded:
1. Securely tape down all loose items (shelves) inside your appliance.
2. Turn the adjustable legs up to the base to avoid damage.
3. Tape the door shut.
4. Be sure the appliance stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect the
outside of the appliance with a blanket or similar item.
Energy Saving Tip
The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances
and out of direct sunlight.
