Introduction
The CP351W is a unique two-door refrigerator with a zero degree freezer. The
fresh food section is automatically defrosted; the freezer is manually defrosted.
The refrigerator compartment stores fresh foods at temperatures of 34°F (1°C)
and higher while the freezer maintains a temperature of 0°F (-17°C).
This product is not designed to operate in enclosed spaces. When placing
your unit, make sure you allow at least 4” of clearance on all sides.
Installation
Before Using Your Appliance
1. Remove the exterior and interior packing. To remove any remaining tape or
glue, rub the area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue residue can also be
easily removed by rubbing a small amount of liquid dish soap over the
adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluid or abrasive
cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of
your refrigerator.
2. When moving the appliance, do not tilt it more than 45° from the upright
position.
3. Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand upright for
approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the
cooling system from handling during transportation.
4. Clean the interior surfaces with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing Your Appliance
WARNING: Keep flammable materials and vapors such as gasoline away from
the refrigerator.
• Place your appliance on a floor that is strong enough to support it when fully
loaded. To level your appliance, adjust the leg at the front of the appliance.
• To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator-freezer, leave at least 4" of
space on each side, 4" at the back and 4" above the unit.
• If you are installing the appliance next to a fixed wall, leave sufficient space
on the hinge side to allow for the door to swing open.
• Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove,
heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight can affect the refrigerator's coating and
heat sources can increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient
temperatures may also cause the appliance to perform improperly.
4
•
Avoid locating the appliance in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will
cause frost to form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent
defrosting of the appliance.
Electrical Connection
 Warning 
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical
shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized
service technician.
•
This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord
of this appliance is equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three-prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
•
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from
the power cord supplied.
•
Plug the appliance into an exclusive, properly installed grounded wall outlet.
Any questions regarding power and/or grounding should be directed toward a
certified electrician or an authorized Summit service center.
•
It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be
provided. Use a receptacle that cannot be turned off with a switch or pull
chain.
•
Do not use an extension cord.
•
This appliance requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60 Hz electrical outlet with
three-prong ground and a 15-amp fuse. To prevent accidental injury, the
power cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or
dangling.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning or removing a light
bulb, turn the temperature control to OFF and then disconnect the unit from
the electrical power source. When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator
to the power source and reset the temperature control to the desired setting.
Test Run
Before using your appliance, make a test run to be sure it is in working order. If
not, check the electrical supply. When the cause of trouble cannot be located,
contact Summit Customer Service at 1-800-932-4267.
1. Set the temperature control knob to OFF and then plug the AC cord into an
electrical outlet of 115 volts, 60Hz. The motor should not run.
2. Set the knob to MAX and let the refrigerator operate for 20 minutes. The
freezer compartment should get slightly frosted and the motor should run
smoothly with a soft hum.
3. Then rotate the knob counter-clockwise toward MIN. Before the pointer of the
knob reaches MIN, the motor should turn off.
5
Reversing the Door Swing
This appliance has the capability of the doors opening from either the left or the
right side. The unit is delivered to you with the doors opening from the left side.
Should you desire to reverse the opening direction, follow the directions and
diagram below. The numbers in the diagram indicate the procedure order in the
instructions. If you have a problem, call Customer Service at 1-800-932-4267.
1. Remove the hinge cap by twisting it off.
2. Remove the upper hexagonal head screws. The top hinge and the freezer
door can now be removed.
3. Remove the middle hexagonal head screws. The middle hinge and the
refrigerator door can now be removed.
4. Remove the cover for middle hinge holes and re-attach it symmetrically to
the holes on the other side.
5. Tilt the refrigerator back or lay it on its back for steps 6, 7, and 8. Use a pad
or blanket to protect the floor and to avoid scratching the painted finish.
6. Remove the leveling legs by turning them counterclockwise. Remove the
lower hexagonal head screws, two on the hinge side and one near the front
corner of the other side.
7. Attach the bottom hinge symmetrically to the other side of the cabinet with
the screws removed in procedure 6. (Do not tighten the screws completely.)
8. Attach the left side leg and the leg spacer to the other side hole which was
positioned symmetrically.
9. Remove the upper hinge plastic pins and insert them in the holes from which
the screws were removed in step 2.
10. Take off the hinge collar caps from both the Freezer and the Refrigerator
doors using a screwdriver and insert them in the hinge collars on the
opposite side.
11. Attach the shaft to the hinge bottom. Attach the refrigerator door to the shaft.
12. Rotate the middle hinge 180°. Attach it to the refrigerator door and secure it
with screws. (Do not tighten the screws completely.)
13. Attach the upper hinge to the freezer door. Attach the freezer door to the
middle hinge and use the screws to attach the upper hinge. (Do not tighten
the screws completely.)
14. The direction in which the door opens has now been changed; however, the
following points should be checked:
a. The door is on straight.
b. There is no space between the door gasket and the refrigerator unit itself
when the door is closed.
c. The gasket on the hinge side is not caught between the door and the unit
when the door is opened or closed. (If the door is forced closed when the
gasket is caught, the gasket may be damaged.)
6
When checking the above points, if you discover that the door is not installed
properly (this is apt to happen on the first try), loosen the screws holding the
upper hinge, straighten the door and tighten the screws slowly with the
socket wrench. After making sure that the door is installed correctly, tighten
all the screws holding the hinge. If they are not tightened, the door may slip
out of position or there may be an opening between the door and the unit.
15. Stand the unit back in the upright position.
7
Operation
Temperature Control
The temperature inside the refrigerator compartment
is controlled by turning the thermostat dial. Higher
numbers mean greater cooling power; lower
numbers mean less cooling power.
Set the temperature control dial to 3 for optimum
refrigeration/freezing conditions under normal
circumstances. Set the dial to MAX only when rapid
refrigeration/freezing in your appliance is necessary.
Be sure to set the dial back to 3 later on.
IMPORTANT:
• Do not operate your refrigerator for more than six hours with the
temperature control dial set to 5 or MAX. At these settings, the
compressor will run continuously. Consequently, foodstuffs stored in the
refrigerator compartment will be frozen and frost will form on the cooling
unit (evaporator).
• When the room temperature is below 60°F, set the temperature control
dial to 2.
• At the control dial setting of 1, the temperature in the freezer compartment
will not remain sufficiently low for ice cream and frozen foods.
• If the unit is turned off or unplugged, YOU MUST ALLOW THREE (3)
MINUTES BEFORE RESTARTING OR REPLUGGING THE UNIT. The
unit will not start if you attempt to restart it in less than three (3) minutes.
Storing Fresh Foods
•
•
•
•
•
•
Foods to be stored in the refrigerator should be properly packed to prevent
loss of moisture and mixing of odors Use plastic bags or wrap, aluminum foil,
wax paper, covered containers or bottles.
Never store any inflammable, volatile or explosive substances.
Beverages with a high percentage of alcohol should be stored in tightly
sealed bottles in a vertical position.
Stored items should not touch the rear wall of the refrigerator.
Some organic substances like the volatile oils in lemon and orange peel, the
acid in butter, etc., can cause damage when in contact with plastic surfaces
or gaskets for a long period of time.
An unpleasant odor inside the refrigerator is a sign that something is wrong
with the food or that your refrigerator needs cleaning. Odors may be
eliminated or reduced by washing the interior of the refrigerator with a mild
solution of water and vinegar.
8
•
If you plan on taking a long trip, make sure you remove all perishable food
before you leave to prevent any odors.
Storing Food in the Freezer Compartment
•
•
•
Only freeze fresh, high-quality products. Meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit,
dairy products and ready-made meals are suitable for freezing. Items with a
high water content, e.g. lettuce, radishes, grapes, apples, pears and
cucumbers, are not suitable for freezing.
Pack items to be frozen in airtight containers, freezer bags or the like. Freeze
items in suitable portions. Do not freeze vegetables in portions larger than 5½
lbs. Do not freeze meat in portions larger than 5½ lbs. Keep packages dry to
prevent them from freezing together. To ensure rapid freezing, make sure, as
far as possible, that items placed in the freezer are not touching. Ensure that
there is as little air in the packages as possible to prevent the surfaces of the
items from drying out.
Always remember to write the date, content and quantity on the packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Defrosting
Refrigerator compartment:
The cooling unit (evaporator) in the refrigerator compartment is automatically
defrosted whenever the compressor motor stops running. No manual
defrosting is required. Frost may grow thick temporarily if the room
temperature is high or the door is opened frequently. Under normal
conditions, however, it will disappear after a period of operation.
Freezer compartment:
The freezer compartment should be kept free of frost for good freezing and
economical operation at low power consumption. Frost should not be allowed
to grow thicker than 1/8” to 1/4”.
• Scrape frost off the freezer
compartment walls with the scraper
supplied with your refrigerator. This
can be done without stopping
operation.
• After a long period of operation,
frost in the freezer compartment may become too hard to be removed
with the scraper. In this case, set the temperature control dial to OFF,
leave the freezer compartment door open for several minutes, and
wipe the freezer compartment walls clean of frost with a hot towel.
Afterwards, wipe the walls dry and reset the control dial.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning the Appliance
Disconnect the power supply before cleaning the appliance. To avoid
damaging the surfaces, do not use coarse or abrasive cleaning agents.
• Clean the exterior with water and detergent. Varnished surfaces can be
cleaned with a soft cloth and an alcohol-based cleaning agent (for example,
glass cleaners). You may also use alcohol (ethanol or isopropyl alcohol). The
application of harsh and abrasive products such as stainless steel cleaners is
not appropriate for the cleaning of plastic and coated parts.
• Remove the detachable accessories in the interior of the appliance and clean
it with a solution of water and liquid detergent. Plastic parts cannot be
washed in a dishwasher.
• Wash the interior of the appliance with lukewarm water to which you have
added one or two spoonfuls of vinegar.
• Every now and then wipe the condenser on the rear wall with a soft non-metal
brush, or use a vacuum cleaner.
• Do not forget to clean the defrost water receptacle above the refrigerator’s
compressor (do not remove the receptacle).
• After cleaning, connect the appliance to the power supply and reload the
packages.
Switching Off the Appliance When Not in Use
If you do not intend to use the appliance for an extensive period of time, set the
thermostat knob to the OFF position and disconnect the power supply. Then take
out the foods and clean the appliance. Leave the door slightly open.
Disposing of a Worn Out Appliance
When your appliance finally wears out, dispose of it. If the appliance has a lock,
break it to prevent possible accidents (danger of children getting locked inside
the appliance).
Energy-Saving Tips
•
•
•
•
Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is hot and
humid. Once you open the door, close it as soon as possible.
Every now and then check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate
air circulation behind the appliance).
Set thermostat from higher to lower settings as soon as possible (depending
on how loaded the appliance is, the ambient temperature, etc.).
The coils on the rear of the refrigerator should be cleaned and free of dust or
any other impurities.
10
•
•
An ice or frost layer increases energy consumption, so remove the frost as
soon as the layer is 1/8” thick. See Defrosting on page 9.
Be sure there is adequate clearance all around the unit, as described in
Installing Your Appliance on page 4.

Troubleshooting
While using your appliance, you may come across some problems that in most
cases result from improper handling. Many of these can easily be eliminated by
following the suggestions listed here.
The appliance fails to operate after connecting to the power supply.
• Check that there is power in the electrical socket.
• Make sure the appliance is switched on (thermostat is in the operating
position).
The refrigeration system is operating continuously.
•
•
•
•
The door was frequently opened 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 appliance may be overloaded with fresh foods.
There may be inadequate ventilation of the compressor and condenser.
(Be sure there is sufficient air circulation. Wipe off the condenser.)
Ice is forming on the inner rear wall.
As long as the defrost water runs to the channel and through the opening to
the drain pan on the compressor, automatic defrosting of the refrigerator
compartment is assured. If the ice formation on the inner back wall increases
to 1/8” or more, the ice should be manually defrosted as follows:
Set the thermostat knob to OFF and leave the door open. Never use electric
devices for defrosting and do not scrape the ice or frost layer with sharp
objects. When defrosting is completed, turn the knob to the desired position
and close the refrigerator door.
Increased ice formation may be caused by one of the following:
- The door does not seal well (clean the gasket if it is contaminated, or
replace it if it is damaged).
- The door was frequently opened or it was left open for too long.
- Food was warm when placed in the refrigerator.
- The food or a container is touching the inner back wall.
Water is leaking from the refrigerator.
In case the discharge water outlet is clogged or the defrost water drips over
the channel resulting in water leaking from the refrigerator, just clean the
clogged opening with a plastic straw. Manually defrost the increased ice layer.
See Ice is forming on the inner rear wall above.
12
Noise
Cooling in refrigerating-freezing appliances is enabled by the refrigerating system
including the 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, a liquid sound is heard and when
the compressor is not operating, a refrigerant flow is heard. This is a
normal condition and it 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 and this does not mean something is wrong
with the appliance. The noise will reduce gradually. This will not affect the
lifetime of the appliance.
• Sometimes strong noises occur which are unusual for the appliance. This
noise is often a consequence of inappropriate placement. To avoid the
noise make sure the appliance is placed and leveled firmly on a solid
base. Make sure the appliance is not touching the wall or kitchen units
standing next to it. And always make sure you check the accessories in
the interior of the appliance; they should be placed correctly in their
positions. Check the bottles, cans and other vessels that might touch each
other and rattle.
Before Calling for Service
 Check the plug and fuse.
 Test the outlet with a lamp.
 Be sure the temperature control dial is not set to OFF.
 Read the manual, especially the items under the Installation, Operation
and Care and Maintenance sections. You may find the answers to your
questions.
 If you don’t find the answers to your questions in this manual, find the
unit model number (on the upper back of the refrigerator) and contact
Summit Customer Service at (800) 932-4267.
