Leveling:
If the appliance is not leveled during installation, the doors may not close or seal properly, causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems. It is very important for the refrigerator-freezer to be level in order to function
properly.
To level your refrigerator-freezer you may either turn the adjustable foot clockwise to raise that side of the
appliance or turn it counter-clockwise to lower that side.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator-freezer will take some weight off the
adjustable foot and make it easier to turn.

weekdays from 8:30 AM to 5:00PM (ET).
Fresh Food Storage:
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof material. This prevents food odor and
taste transfer throughout the refrigerator.
• Fruit – Wash, let dry and store in refrigerator in plastic bags or crisper.
• Leafy vegetables – Remove wrapping and trim or tear off bruised and discolored areas, wash in cold
water and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic container and store in crisper.
• Fish – Use fresh fish the same day as purchased.
• Meat – Store most meat in original wrapping as long as it is airtight and moisture-proof. Re-wrap if
necessary.
• Leftovers – Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Plastic containers with tight lids can also be
used.
Frozen Food Storage:
Temperature Control (Thermostat)
When using the refrigerator-freezer for the first time or after
defrosting, turn the temperature control to the “MAX” setting
for at least two hours before introducing the food to be stored.
All frozen food products you purchase should be placed in the
freezer compartment as soon as possible to keep the frozen
food from defrosting.
Storage recommendations printed on the packaging of the
frozen food by the manufacturer should always be followed.
6
Freezing Fresh Food
Ensure that your freezing operations are carried out under the most hygienic conditions as freezing alone
does not sterilize the food. It is advisable to freeze the food by packing it into separate meal portions and not
in bulk form. Never put hot or even warm foodstuffs into the freezer compartment. Prior to storing the frozen
food, pack it in plastic bags, aluminum sheets or freezer containers and place into the freezer compartment.
Never overload the freezer compartment; leave room between packages for proper air circulation.
NOTE: Never put bottled food or drinks in the freezer compartment.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning Your Appliance:
1. Before you start to clean your refrigerator-freezer, unplug it.
2. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh
cleaners.
3. Hand wash, rinse and dry all surfaces thoroughly.
4. Do not use cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleaners containing petroleum on
plastic or rubber parts.
5. Never use paper towels, window sprays, scouring cleansers or flammable fluids on plastic parts as these
can scratch or damage material.
6. Clean with a cloth soaked in the mild detergent solution and then dry with a soft cloth.
Prolonged Off Periods:
If the refrigerator-freezer will not be in use for a long period of time, proceed as follows:
1. Disconnect the appliance by removing the plug from the wall socket.
2. Clean and dry the inside as instructed under the heading Cleaning Your Appliance.

Changing the Reversible Door:
Before reversing the door swing, be sure the appliance is unplugged and empty. Provide additional support
for the doors while hinges are being removed. Do not depend on the door magnets to hold the door in place.
It is recommended that two people perform this task. DO NOT lay the appliance completely flat as this may
damage the coolant system.
Remove right bottom hinge and reserve the
screws. Remove screw covers at left corner
and put them into the screw holes at right
corner. Install left hinge by using those
reserved screws.
Remove the screws from the
middle hinge. Lift the
refrigerator door up and away
from the appliance.
8
Remove right pin assemblies from the bottom
of the freezer and refrigerator doors. On the
opposite side, attach the replacement pin
assemblies (located in the plastic bag with the
Use and Care Manual) with a screwdriver.
NOTE: You must re-use the screws from the
pin assemblies that are removed in this step
when attaching the new assemblies.
Place the refrigerator door on the bottom hinge.
Be sure the door is aligned horizontally and
vertically. Attach middle hinge to refrigerator door
and attach bolt washer to the back of the hinge,
then fix them to middle beam and fasten them with
a screwdriver.
Place the freezer door on the middle
hinge. Ensure that the door is aligned
horizontally and vertically, and that the
gasket seals on all sides before attaching
the top hinge. Attach the top hinge and
replace the hinge cover.

Troubleshooting
In case of malfunction, you can solve many common problems easily.
If your refrigerator-freezer does not operate:
Is the power supply cord plugged in?
If the doors will not close completely:
Are the drawers out of position?
Are the gaskets dirty?
Is the refrigerator-freezer level?
If the refrigerator-freezer is noisy when running:
Check that the appliance is level and is not in contact with another appliance or article of kitchen
furniture.
If the refrigerator-freezer does not cool sufficiently:
Have the doors been opened too often, or have they been left open for a while? If so, it will take time
for the refrigerator-freezer to reach its set temperature.
Has the airflow at the rear of the appliance been reduced due to insufficient clearance?
The following characteristics should not be looked upon as a problem:
• A gentle trickling sound caused by coolant flowing through the pipes.
• Compressor operating at high temperature.
Requesting Assistance or Service:
If the problem is not due to one of the items listed in Troubleshooting, contact the dealer or authorized
service company. You can also call our SUMMIT® Customer Service line at 1-800-932-4267 weekdays
from 8:30 AM to 5:00PM (ET).
