APPLIANCE SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important to us.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read
and obey all safety messages. You can be killed or seriously injured if you do not follow these instructions.
Safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, how to reduce the chance of injury, and what
can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS!
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury when
using your refrigerator/freezer, follow these basic precautions:
 Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
 Do not remove ground prong, nor use a 3/2 adapter.
 Do not use an extension cord.
 Use care not to plug into outlets controlled by wall switches.
 Disconnect power before servicing.
 After servicing, replace all parts and panels before operating.
 Use nonflammable cleaners.
 Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from appliances.
 Use two or more people to move and install appliance.
 Drawer refrigerators are provided with anti-tip brackets. Always install prior to use.
Proper Disposal of Your Old Appliance
Old appliances can represent a suffocation hazard to children.
 Remove doors from your old appliance.
 Leave shelves in place.
 If an old appliance contains refrigerants, it must be recycled by a licensed service or
disposal company.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
UNPACKING
Excessive Weight Hazard!
Use two or more people to move and install your appliance.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
ALLOW APPLIANCE TO SIT UPRIGHT FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE TURNING ON, TO ALLOW THE
COMPRESSOR LUBRICANT TO DRAIN.
1. Remove packaging materials.
2. Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the appliance. Rub a small amount of liquid
dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers. Rinse with warm water and dry.
3. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue.
These products can damage the surface of your appliance.
4. When Moving Your Appliance:
Your appliance is heavy. When moving the appliance for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor.
Always pull the appliance straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the appliance when trying to
move it, because floor damage can occur.
5. Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your appliance before using it. See the
cleaning instructions in Appliance Care.
6. All upright models have level legs in the front and many also have them in the rear. Level as necessary for
best operation.
7. If your appliance has casters, after moving into place, lock the brakes on those casters supplied with brakes.
Always unlock before moving the appliance for cleaning.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from appliances. Failure to do so can result in
explosion or fire.
LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT: Do not install the appliance near an oven, radiator, or other heat source, nor in a location where the
temperature will fall below 45°F (7°C). Do not place in direct sunlight.
Check the strength of the floor before installing your appliance. It should hold the weight of a fully-loaded
appliance. Your product is designed to be installed under the counter in a 24-inch opening. When installing,
provide the following clearances to ensure the best operation and proper ventilation: 3/16” on both sides, 2” at
the rear and 1/16” at the top. Be sure that airflow under the appliance is not blocked. If the appliance is going to
be placed against a wall, if possible, leave extra space on the hinge side so the door can open wider than its
width (to make it easier to remove shelves or storage bins).
NOTE: This appliance may be installed side by side with another appliance. Allow the same clearances as
described in the paragraph above.
Felix Storch, Inc.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLACE
Place the appliance in a dry and regularly ventilated place. It is recommended that this appliance always be operated
in an ambient temperature of at least 60°F and under 85°F. The appliance may be exposed to lower or higher
temperatures but only for a short period of time and the temperature should never be lower than 45°F. Never place the
appliance near heat-emitting devices (e.g., oven, radiator, water heater) and do not expose it to direct sunlight.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
A 115 Volt (AC only) 60 Hz grounded electrical supply equipped with a 15- or 20- amp fuse or circuit breaker is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your appliance be provided. Use outlets that cannot be turned
off by a switch or pull chain. Connect this appliance to a 3-prong power supply outlet that has a ground terminal. If you
only have a 2-prong outlet, have it replaced by a qualified technician with an outlet that meets the local codes. DO NOT
USE AN EXTENSION CORD. Required nominal voltage and frequency are indicated on the rating plate. The connection
to the power supply and grounding has to be made according to current standards and regulations. The appliance can
resist temporary voltage fluctuations from -15 to +10%.
FOR OUTDOOR MODELS ONLY
Electrical Shock Hazard! Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire or electrical shock.
Many outdoor outlets are controlled by wall switches. Turning power off and then on again may cause the GFCI switch
to trip.
A GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) is built into every line cord. Do not defeat or bypass this important safety
feature. The line cord supplied with this appliance is specially designed for outdoor use. Use only a factory-supplied
replacement cord with a GFCI in the event the cord becomes damaged.
You may purchase these cords from either our sales or service department at 718-893-3900 (sales) or 718-328-8700
(service).
They can also be ordered online from www.summitapplianceparts.com
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
 The more airflow you can provide around an appliance, the less energy it will use.
 If your appliance needs defrosting, keep ice build-up to less than 1/2 inch.
 Keep doors or drawers open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
LEVELING YOUR APPLIANCE
1. Locate the two front leveling legs, which may be taped among the packing materials. In most models these legs are
already mounted into the underside of the appliance.
2. Screw these legs into the front holes on the bottom of the appliance. The back of the appliance rests on two fixed
supports. (Built-in models also have rear level legs that can provide more precise leveling).
3. Adjust the front legs just enough to lift the cabinet up off the floor.
4. Place a leveling tool on top of the appliance: first side to side, then front to back. Turn leg counter-clockwise to
raise a corner. Turn leg clockwise to lower a corner.
5. Repeat Step 4 until appliance is level.
6. After appliance is fully loaded, recheck with level as in Step 4.
7. If your appliance is equipped with casters, the two front casters have brakes to prevent rolling. Keep brakes locked,
and unlock for moving only.

APPLIANCE USE
In order to ensure proper temperature, you need to permit proper airflow in the appliance. Do not block any air
vents. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be prevented, and temperature and moisture problems may occur.
Always position contents to allow some airflow between shelves or baskets.
Allow the appliance to cool at least 6 to 8 hours before adding contents. Allow 24 hours for temperature to
stabilize.
NOTE: When the appliance is first started, the compressor will run constantly until the appliance is cold. It may
take 6 to 8 hours (or longer), depending on room temperature and the number of times the appliance door is
opened. After the appliance is cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to keep the appliance at
the proper temperature.
The outside of your appliance may feel warm. This is normal. The appliance’s design and main function is to
remove heat from packages and air space inside the appliance. The heat is transferred to the room air, making
the outside of the appliance feel warm. In some models the condenser that gets warm is inside the side walls,
making these walls warm to the touch.
REVERSING THE DOOR SWING (Selected models)
If you find the direction of opening the door on your appliance inconvenient, on some models you can change it.
Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared in the factory. On models with our wrapped stainless
steel door and 12-inch pro handle (suffix SSTB, SSVH, SSHV or CSS, or with optional handles “TB” or “SH” ), you
must order these with either a right hand or left hand door swing in advance. These doors cannot be reversed.
Models with suffix SSHH, BIFR, BIIF and CSSHH can be reversed.
TO REVERSE YOUR DOOR
 Take off the upper hinge cover from the door and remove the screws that hold the top hinge.
 Lift the hinge straight up to free the hinge pin from the socket in the top of the door.
 Lift the door up and away to free its bottom socket from the hinge pin.
 Remove the screws to the bottom hinge.
 Remove the decorative caps from the opposite side and plug the holes from the original side with the
decorative caps.
 Move the bottom hinge to the opposite side and tighten the screws. Use any lock washers or nuts if they were
included in the original installation.
 Replace door onto the hinge pin on the bottom hinge. Place top hinge pin into door. Insert screws into top
hinge and tighten.
If you notice the door is not hanging straight, loosen the top hinges, adjust the door until it is level and tighten
the screws.

APPLIANCE CARE
Cleaning Your Frost-Free Refrigerator
Use nonflammable cleaners.
Frost-free means that you do not have to defrost your appliance. Frost is removed by air moving and collecting any
moisture and depositing it on the cooling coil. The cooling coil periodically warms up enough to melt the frost, and the
water then flows down to the drain pan (located behind the base grill) where it is evaporated.
Complete cleaning should be done at least once a year.
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect power.
2. Remove all substances.
3. Wash the inside walls with a solution of mild detergent in warm water or 2 tbs (26 g) baking soda to 1 qt (0.95 L) warm
water.
 Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning
waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and
door liners or gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools. These can scratch or
damage materials.
4. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Use the appropriate cleaning method for your exterior finish.
Painted metal: Wash exteriors with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use
abrasive or harsh cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless steel. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. For additional
protection against damage to painted metal exteriors, apply appliance wax (or auto paste wax) with a clean, soft cloth.
Do not wax plastic parts.
6. Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
7. Replace all containers.
Stainless steel: Clean stainless steel with special stainless steel cleaners only. Do not use bleach or any abrasive
cleaners.
Cleaning your cycle defrost or manual defrost refrigerator
Cycle defrost models utilize a system where ice builds up on the rear wall and melts when the compressor is off. Manual
defrost models continually build ice on inner walls.
NEVER USE A METAL OBJECT TO REMOVE ICE FROM THE REAR WALL. IF NEEDED, USE A PLASTIC ICESCRAPER OR A HAIR DRYER.
Clean surfaces, using the same instructions as for frost-free models.
For CSS Models (completely stainless steel) or models with stainless steel doors and handles, please
use only cleaners especially made for stainless steel.

TEMPERATURE SELECTION
YOUR APPLIANCE MAY HAVE A MECHANICAL (DIAL) OR DIGITAL THERMOSTAT.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BOTH FOLLOW:
MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT INSTRUCTIONS
The refrigerator is controlled with a thermostat knob located inside the unit, toward the upper right-hand corner. Turn
the knob clockwise from the STOP (0) position toward the higher numbers for colder temperatures.
Temperature Controls
 Higher settings on the knob (higher numbers) mean lower temperatures (colder) in all
compartments of the appliance. At the coldest settings, temperatures in some spots of the interior of
the appliance may even drop below 32°F. Use higher thermostat settings only when required or
recommended. When the ambient temperature is normal, we recommend the medium setting.
 Changes of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the appliance so keep
this in mind when choosing the setting of the thermostat knob.
 In the STOP (0) position the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is switched off), yet power supply is not
interrupted (the light goes on when you open the refrigerator door).
 The temperature in the refrigerator and in the freezer compartment also depend 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.
DIGITAL THERMOSTAT INSTRUCTIONS
If you find that it is necessary to change the temperature setting for your digital thermostat-controlled appliance, please
refer to the following instructions. The front panel of the thermostat is illustrated here:
Up & Down arrows
SET key
To see the SETPOINT:
Push and immediately release the SET key. The display will show the SET point value. Wait 5 seconds and the probe
value will display again.
To change the SETPOINT:
Push and hold the SET key for more then 3 seconds to change the setpoint value. The value of the setpoint will be
displayed and the “snowflake” LED will start blinking. To change the SET value, push the up or down arrows to the
desired setting. The new setting will be memorized after 15 seconds, provided no other keys are pushed.
Note: The minimum and maximum range of your thermostat is preset and locked by us, so it cannot easily be accidentally
moved between freezer and refrigerator temperatures. To reset this range lock, either call us or find information on
our website under Troubleshooting.

APPLIANCE OPERATION (by Model)
FF6BI – FF7BI – SCR600LOS – SPR7OS – SPR601OS – SCR600BI – SWC6GBI – AL750BI – ALB751 – ALB753B Series
DEFROST SYSTEM, OPERATION AND SHELF ADJUSTMENT – All models of the above series are all-refrigerators,
with no freezer compartment and an auto-defrost system. During the compressor operation, ice will build up along the cold
rear wall (the evaporator plate is behind the wall). During the compressor’s off-cycle, ice will melt, drip down, collect in the
trough at the bottom and drain through the small hole into a tray above the compressor, where the compressor’s heat will
evaporate the water. If you notice excessive ice build-up on the rear wall, try setting the thermostat to a slightly warmer
setting; be sure that the gasket is sealing well and that there is no obstruction of the drain hole in the bottom rear of these
units. Models with black cabinets include glass shelves. These shelves stop short an inch before the back wall, which is
essential for air flow and the automatic defrost system. Do not block with food or containers. All models have removable,
easily adjustable shelves. To remove a shelf, simply lift the rear of the shelf out of its locking position and slide the shelf
forward. Replace shelves the same way, being sure they lock into place. The thermostat of these units is located at the
top on the right hand side as you face the refrigerator. Turn clockwise for colder operation, and counter-clockwise to save
energy and increase the temperature. The light on the FF6BI models is controlled by an automatic plunger switch
whenever the door is opened. Models with glass doors and flat door liners have a rocker switch to manually turn the light
on or off. The light should be kept off when the door is closed to save energy and help keep interior temperatures lower.
BI540 – BI541 – CT67BI – AL650BI – ALB651 – ALB653B – CT66BI – CT66B Series
DEFROST SYSTEM, OPERATION AND SHELF ADJUSTMENT – Models above are refrigerator-freezer combinations
with a manual defrost freezer section and an automatic defrost fresh-food section. When ice builds to ½ inch around the
freezer, empty the contents of the whole unit and defrost carefully (DO NOT USE SHARP OBJECTS) following directions
earlier in this manual. The fresh food section will defrost itself, exactly like the models in the previous section. The freezer
in this unit is rated four stars, which makes it suitable for ice-cream and short term storage of meats and other perishable
items. For best storage, be sure not to over-pack and assure the freezer door closes fully. Shelves adjust the same as in
the section above. Models with black cabinets as well as CT67BI models include glass shelves. These shelves stop short
an inch before the back wall, which is essential for air flow and the automatic defrost system. Do not block with food or
containers. The thermostat of these units is located at the top on the right hand side as you face the refrigerator. Turn
clockwise for colder operation, and counter-clockwise to save energy and increase the temperature. Lights on these units
are all controlled by an automatic plunger-type switch.
SCFF55 Series
These units are frost-free freezers with a fan-cooled interior. The cooling is provided by the evaporator module mounted to
the top of the unit. Air is circulated through the fan grill at the front of the unit and an outlet at the rear of the unit. Try to
keep the air path as free as possible for optimal performance. Normally, no defrosting of these units is needed. There are
no user serviceable parts within the evaporator module, so do not tamper with or attempt to move this part. It is part of the
sealed refrigeration system. Models with black cabinets include glass shelves. These shelves stop short an inch before
the back wall, which is essential for air flow. Do not block with food or containers. All models have removable, easily
adjustable shelves. To remove a shelf, simply lift the rear of the shelf out of its locking position and slide the shelf forward.
Replace shelves the same way, being sure they lock into place. The light in the SCFF55 models is controlled by a manual
rocker switch. Keep the light off when the door is closed for better performance and to save energy. Models with icemakers installed do not include an interior light.
SWC6GBI Series Wine Cellars
These wine cellars are fully automatic defrost (see description of the defrost system under Model FF6BI series above).
There is a light in the upper right corner, controlled by a rocker switch. Base models of the SWC6G series have chromeplated shelves, while some models are equipped with optional flat wire shelves or wooden shelves. For maximum
capacity, it is possible to lay wine bottles at the rear of the shelves cross-wise, behind the bottles facing forward. Keep
one inch of clearance behind the shelves and the rear wall for air circulation and the efficient operation of the defrost
system. Glass doors should be cleaned with non-abrasive glass cleaners, and it is recommended that the interiors be
cleaned with only a baking soda / water mix so odors are not left behind that can be absorbed by corks. These models are
one temperature zone only, although the lower shelves are normally a few degrees colder than the upper shelves.

APPLIANCE OPERATION (by Model)
BI605FF Series
These units are fully automatic defrost refrigerator-freezers. They utilize a digital thermostat with a built-in defrost-timer
(mounted in the kick-plate) to intermittently turn off the refrigeration system long enough for the freezer plate to melt
accumulated ice. The melted water is drained out of the appliance through the metal tray below the freezer compartment
to a plastic tray above the compressor where the water is evaporated. During the cooling cycles, it is normal to see a
small ice accumulation on the freezer floor. Be sure to keep the path for water removal clear and the metal tray properly
seated. The digital thermostat will display “DEF” during the defrost function.
The auto-defrost feature adds convenience, but it is not recommended for uses where critical medicine, pharmaceuticals
or vaccines need to be kept frozen. A manual or frost-free freezer compartment or a separate freezer is more suitable for
these applications. SUMMIT has a full range of such products.
To set the interior temperature, (it should be set only for the fresh food section) follow the instructions for digital
thermostats earlier in this manual. Model BI605FF does not include a vegetable crisper as a standard feature.
OUTDOOR REFRIGERATORS
(BRANDED SUMMIT OR OTHER BRANDS)
SPR7OS Series, SPR7OSBI series, SPR601OS Series, SCR600LOS Series and Drawer series
Models for outdoor use all contain the same internal defrost system as the FF7BI series on the prior pages. Your unit may
have a light controlled by a rocker switch, an automatic switch or no light. (Drawer units are not equipped with lights.)
Read directions earlier in this booklet, specifically on the use of GFCI outdoor cord, location requirements, tip-over
brackets for drawer units, drawer removal and replacement and safety. These refrigerators are not designed to operate
when exterior temperatures are below 45 degrees F. If you have seasons with temperatures routinely that low, these units
should be unplugged, cleaned and stored for the winter. Always leave the door slightly ajar during storage so odors will
not build up inside the units. Once a season, when foods are not present (prior to winter storage is ideal), the stainless
steel exterior of the units can be lightly coated with WD-40 to restore the luster and protect the finish. A vinyl cover for the
SPR7-OS series can be ordered from your dealer or at www.summitapplianceparts.com. Drawer refrigerators and
SPR7-OSBI models are suitable for under-counter or built-in applications. SPR7-OS models, and SCR600LOS series and
SPR601OS series are intended for free-standing use, and if put under a counter, provisions for adequate air flow must be
provided (minimum 1 inch on sides and top and 2 inches at the rear).
FOR BEST PERFORMANCE OF OUTDOOR REFRIGERATORS:

INSTALLING A PANEL INTO A SUMMIT FRAME (“FR” SUFFIX)
On any model that includes suffix “FR” in the model number, and on all models BI540, BI541, ALB651, ALB653B, ALB751
and ALB753B, a two-piece stainless steel frame is mounted on the door. The models can be used without a panel, but to
install a panel follow the directions below. (Panel size is 23 1/8” W x 28 1/8” H.)
1. Empty the refrigerator and carefully lay it on its back.
2. Unscrew the small piece of frame from the bottom. For a thin metal panel, use a piece of cardboard as backing.
3. Slide panel into frame, replace the bottom frame and reattach the screws.
BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
Before calling for assistance or service, please check Troubleshooting. It may save you the cost of a service call. If you
still need help, follow the instructions below. When calling, please know the purchase date and the complete model and
serial numbers of your appliance. This information will help us to respond better to your request.
If You Need Replacement Parts
If you need to order replacement parts, we recommend that you use only factory-specified parts. Factory-specified parts
will fit right and work right because they are made with the same precision used to build every new SUMMIT® appliance.
 Check the plug, fuse and/or circuit breaker.
 Test the outlet with a lamp.
 Make certain that the outlet used is not controlled by a wall switch. This is more common in outdoor kitchens.
 Be sure the control is not set to 0 (OFF).
 On outdoor units, check that the GFCI switch on the line cord is on. If necessary, press the Reset button.
 Read the manual, especially the items under Troubleshooting. You may find the answer to your question.
If you don’t find the answer in this manual, find the unit model number (on the serial tag) and try our website
(www.summitappliance.com) under Service and Support, or contact our Customer Service department at 1-800-2878799.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call ...
Your refrigerator or freezer will not operate:
 Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, or is the outlet not receiving power or is it switch-controlled?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Check the outlet with a small appliance you know works.
 Is the refrigerator or freezer defrosting (on some models)?
Recheck to see whether the appliance is operating in a few hours. It may regularly run an automatic defrost cycle.
There is water in the defrost drain pan (on some models):
 Is the appliance defrosting?
The water will evaporate. It is normal for water to drip into the defrost pan.
 Is it more humid than normal?
When it is humid, expect that the water in the defrost pan will take longer to evaporate.
The motor seems to run too much:
 Is there excessive frost or a package preventing the door from closing?
Defrost and clean the appliance, or move the package so the door closes properly.
 Is the room temperature hotter than normal?
The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal room temperatures, your motor will run about 40% to 80% of the time. Under
warmer conditions, it will run even more.
 Has a large amount of food just been added to the appliance?
Adding a large amount of food warms the refrigerator or freezer. The motor normally will run longer to cool the appliance back down.
 Is the door closed completely?
Push the door firmly shut. If it will not shut all the way, see “The door will not close completely” later in this section.
 Are the condenser coils dirty (on some models)?
This prevents air transfer and makes the motor work harder. Clean the condenser coils.
 Is the door gasket sealed all the way around?
If not, contact a qualified technician.
NOTE: If the problem is not due to any of the above, remember that the compressor on your new appliance will operate longer
than your old one due to its high-efficiency motor.
The interior temperature is too warm:
 Are the air vents blocked?
This prevents cold air movement. Move objects away from the air vents.
 Is the door opened often?
Be aware that the refrigerator or freezer will warm when this occurs. In order to keep the appliance cool, try to get everything you need out
of it at once, keep food organized so it is easy to find, and close the door as soon as the food is removed.
 Has a large amount of food just been added?
Adding a large amount of food warms the refrigerator or freezer. It can take several hours to return to the normal temperature.
The door will not close completely or is difficult to open:
 Are food packages blocking the door?
Rearrange containers so that they fit more tightly and take up less space.
 Are the shelves and basket out of position (on some models)?
Put the shelves and basket back into their correct positions.
