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 seriously injured or even killed if you don’t follow 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 appliance, 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.
NOTE: Drawer refrigerators are provided with anti-tip brackets. Always install
prior to use.
Proper disposal of an 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.
3
Installation Instructions
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 cleaning instructions in Appliance Care.
6. Some upright models have leveling legs. 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.
Key Eject lock (some models):
To lock or unlock the appliance, you must hold the key in the lock while turning.
The lock is spring loaded, so the key cannot be left in the lock.
If the key is lost, contact your dealer or SUMMIT APPLIANCE for a replacement.
Always give the model and serial number of your appliance when requesting a
replacement key. Keys for most models can be ordered online at
www.summitappliance.com/support
4
Location Requirements
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away
from appliances. Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion or
death.
Location:
IMPORTANT: Do not install the appliance near an oven, radiator, or other heat
source, nor in a location where the temperature will fall below 40°F (5°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. Allow at least 4” (10 cm) of airspace at the top
and on both sides of the appliance and also 4” between the back of the appliance
and the wall. If the appliance is going to be placed next to a wall, leave extra
space on the hinge side so the door can open wider than its width.
NOTE: Allow 4” (10 cm) clearance at the top and sides and a ¼” (0.64 cm)
clearance between appliances. IF YOUR MODEL HAS THE LETTERS “BI”
IN THE SUFFIX, IT IS DESIGNED FOR BUILT-IN USE AND REQUIRES
ONLY MINIMAL CLEARANCES EXCEPT AT THE BACK WHERE AT
LEAST 2” OF CLEARANCE SHOULD BE ALLOWED. ALL FF590 AND
SCFF51OSWH MODELS ARE ALSO BUILT-IN CAPABLE
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, electrical shock or
death.
Recommended grounding method:
A 115 Volt (AC only) 60 Hz grounded electrical supply 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. Do not use an extension cord.
5
Leveling your appliance (some upright models):
Locate the two front leveling legs that may be taped among the packing materials. (In
many models these legs are already mounted into the underside of the appliance.)
1. 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).
2. Adjust the front legs just enough to lift the cabinet up off the floor.
Note: If your model is equipped with front rollers, the front legs should be lowered
enough to lift the rollers off the floor to ensure the appliance does not roll
forward when the door is opened.
3. 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.
4. Repeat Step 3 until appliance is level.
5. After appliance is fully loaded, recheck with level as in Step 3.
6. If your appliance is equipped with casters, the two front casters have brakes to
prevent rolling. Keep brakes locked, and unlock for moving only.
When using the appliance:
In order to ensure proper temperature, you need to permit proper airflow in the
appliance. Do not block off any air vents. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be
hindered, 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 cooled. 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 has cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to keep the
appliance at the proper temperature.
For optimum temperature performance, it is recommended that this unit be at
least 30% full during use. If you are only using this unit to store small loads, we
recommend adding some water bottles or freezer packs to ensure temperature
stability.
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 just inside the side walls,
making these walls warm to the touch.)
ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
• The more airflow provided around an appliance, the less energy it will use.
• If your appliance requires manual defrosting, keep ice build-up to less than 1/2".
• Keep doors open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
6
Appliance Care
Cleaning a frost-free appliance:
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 stored items, plus shelves, trays, etc.
3. Wash the inside walls, shelves and trays with a solution of mild detergent in warm
water or 2 tbsp (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 surfaces.
4. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Use the appropriate cleaning method for the 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.
Cleaning a 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 ICE-SCRAPER OR A HAIR DRYER.
Clean surfaces using the same instructions as for frost-free models.
For CSS Models (completely stainless steel), only use cleaners especially made
for stainless steel.
7
Base grill (some models only):
To Remove and Replace the Base Grill:
1. Open the appliance door and remove the base grill by pulling down and out
from the top.
2. Replace the base grill by putting the clips in the openings in the appliance
panel. Push in until the base grill snaps into place.
Changing the light bulb (some models only):
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your appliance. Be sure to replace the bulb
with one of the same size, shape, base size and wattage. You can purchase
bulbs from www.summitappliance.com/support
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect power.
2. Remove the light shield. Most models do not require tools.
3. Replace the light bulb with an appliance bulb of the same wattage.
4. Replace the light shield.
5. Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
Loss of power:
After the power is restored, unplug the appliance for 30 minutes to allow the
refrigeration system to equalize. During this time, keep the door closed as much
as possible.
Remember: A full appliance stays cold longer than a partially filled one.
Moving the appliance:
1. Remove stored items and tape shelves, drawers and trays in place.
2. Unplug the appliance.
3. Clean it thoroughly.
4. Tape the appliance shut and tape the electrical cord to the cabinet.
When you get the appliance to its new location, refer to the Installation
Instructions and Temperature Selection sections for information on installation
and setting the controls.
8
Temperature Selection and Monitoring
YOUR APPLIANCE MAY HAVE A MECHANICAL (DIAL) OR DIGITAL THERMOSTAT.
DIAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE BELOW. DIGITAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE ON PAGE 10.
Manual (dial) thermostat (on most models):
Your refrigerator may be controlled with a thermostat knob located inside the unit,
towards the right-hand corner. Turn the knob clockwise from the STOP (0) position
toward the higher numbers for colder temperatures.
Setting the Temperature:
•
•
•
•
Higher settings on the knob (higher numbers) mean lower temperatures
(colder) in all compartments of the appliance. The temperature inside a
refrigerator may even 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 of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the
appliance, so keep this in mind when choosing the setting of the thermostat
dial.
At STOP (0) position, the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is
switched off), but the power supply is not interrupted (the light is on when you
open the refrigerator door).
The temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartments 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.
For optimum temperature performance, it is recommended that this unit be at
least 30% full during use. If you are only using this unit to store small loads,
we recommend adding some water bottles or freezer packs to ensure
temperature stability.
9
Digital thermostat (on certain models):
If you find it necessary to change the temperature setting for your digital-thermostat
controlled appliance, please refer to the following instructions. The front panel of the
melting
thermostat is illustrated here:

To see the SET POINT:
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 SET POINT:
Push and hold the SET key for more than 3 seconds to change the set point value.
The value of the set point will be displayed, and the “snowflake” LED will start
blinking.
To change the SET value:
Push the UP or DOWN arrow 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.
Traceable thermometer (PLUS models):
This digital thermometer simultaneously displays
maximum, minimum and current temperatures.
The Max/Min feature monitors and stores the
highest and lowest readings since the battery
was inserted or since the RESET button was last
pressed.
The temperature sensor, or probe, is enclosed in
a glycol-filled bottle that you insert into the
location to be monitored, such as inside a
refrigerator or freezer. The thermometer itself
can be attached to the door of the unit with the
magnet on the back, or it can be placed on a
convenient table or shelf.
Power to the Traceable Thermometer is supplied with a AAA lithium battery. When it
is inserted correctly, all segments of the LCD display are temporarily activated. When
the battery needs to be replaced, a battery symbol will flash on the display.
The temperature display can be switched between Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F)
with a push of the °C/°F button. The display will alternate between refrigerator (probe)
temperature and room temperature when you press the ROOM/FRIDGE button. Press
RESET to clear the Max/Min temperature record.
See instruction pamphlet for more information about the Traceable Thermometer.
10
Traceable thermometer/alarm (MED models):
Every MED unit is equipped with a Traceable
Thermometer/Alarm that simultaneously displays
minimum, maximum and current interior
temperatures and provides a visual and audible
signal when the temperature inside the unit falls
outside the set temperature range.
The temperature sensor, or probe, is enclosed in
a glycol-filled bottle that you insert into the
location to be monitored, such as inside a
refrigerator or freezer, once the unit has been
programmed. The thermometer/alarm itself can
be attached to the door of the unit with the
magnet on the back, or it can be placed on a
convenient table or shelf.
Power to the Traceable Thermometer/Alarm is supplied with a lithium iron disulfide
battery with a 10-year shelf life. When it is inserted correctly, the unit will beep and all
segments of the LCD display will be temporarily activated. (Note that alarm
temperatures will have to be reset after replacing the battery.)
The temperature display can be switched between Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F)
by sliding the °C/°F button located on the back of the unit.

Operation of Specific Models
SCFF51OSWH MED Series
These frost-free all-freezers can be built-in or free-standing. They do not require defrosting
and have a digital thermostat, LED lighting and a lock. At the top of the unit is a cooling
system that uses a fan to provide cold air. For best operation, do not block the air flow with
contents.
FF6L, FF7L, FF28LWH, FF511L, FF521BL, FF590SSHH, FFAR2L, FFAR10, FFAR21L,
FFAR24L, SCR450L, SCR500BL, SCR600L, SCR610BL PLUS & MED Series;
SP6DS2D7, SP6DS7, SP6DSSTB7 MED Series only
These models are all-refrigerators (no freezer compartment) with automatic defrost. All
have cold plates on the rear wall, and the coldest spots in the refrigerator will be in the rear
and toward the bottom. All have interior fans to promote even cooling. In the rear bottom
above the step, there is a drain line to allow defrost water to exit the refrigerator. Keep this
drain line clear, or icing inside the refrigerator will occur. FF7, FF511L, FF521BL, and SCR
series models have lights that are not door-activated, and are controlled by a rocker switch
on the top right. The light generates a small amount of heat, so minimize the use of the light
for best operation and energy savings. FF6 models and FFAR10 models all have dooractivated lights. Smaller models and drawer models do not have interior lights.
NOTE: FF590, models with BI in the model number, and all drawer units are designed for
built-in operation and need very little clearance on the sides and above the units. All
other models require at least 1 inch of airflow on the sides and above the units. All
models operate best when 2 inches is provided between the rear wall and the back of
the unit.
FCL44, FS20L, FS21L, FS22L, FS24L, FS30L, FS60ML, FS407L, FS408BL, VT65ML
PLUS & MED Series
Model FCL44 is a chest freezer; all of the others are upright. These are manual defrost allfreezers. No internal fans are present, and ice will build up along the cooling coils.
Periodically defrost the ice (recommended when the ice level reaches a thickness of 1/4 to
1/2 inch). NEVER USE A METAL INSTRUMENT as you can damage the cooling coils,
which will void your warranty and often cannot be repaired. To defrost, disconnect from the
power supply, empty the contents, provide a tray in the bottom to collect water, and use a
hairdryer or other source of warm air to melt the ice (or leave the door open and the power
off for 24 to 48 hours). For built-in (BI) models and clearance information, see NOTE
above.
CP35LL PLUS & MED Series; CT66 PLUS Series only
These models are cycle defrost refrigerator-freezers. The freezers are designed to operate
at 0°F (-18°C), suitable for medical or laboratory uses. These models have dual
evaporators to maintain separate temperatures in the freezer and refrigerator. Defrost the
freezer carefully, as directed above for manual defrost. The refrigerator section operates in
the normal range (35 to 45°F, or 2 to 7°C) and defrosts automatically. For built-in (BI)
models and clearance information, see NOTE above.
CM411L, CM421BL, S19LWH PLUS Series
These models are manual defrost refrigerator-freezers. The freezers in these models are
designed to operate at 25°F (-4°C) to keep ice frozen, and not for medication or products
needing colder temperatures. Defrost carefully, following directions above. The refrigerator
section will operate in the normal range (35 to 45°F, or 2 to 7°C) and is suitable for most
refrigerated products. For built-in (BI) models and clearance information, see NOTE above.
13
Troubleshooting
Try these solutions first to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
Your appliance will not operate:
• Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
• Is the freezer defrosting (on some models)?
Recheck to see whether the freezer is operating in 30 minutes. Your freezer will regularly run an
automatic defrost cycle.
There is water in the defrost drain pan (on some models):
• Is the freezer 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 freezer, 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, the 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 freezer?
Adding a large amount of food warms the freezer. The motor normally will run longer to cool the
freezer 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 heat 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.
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 freezer will warm when this occurs. In order to keep the freezer cool, try
to get everything you need out of the freezer 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 to the freezer?
Adding a large amount of food warms the freezer. It can take several hours for the freezer 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 or drawers out of position (on some models)?
Put the shelves and drawers back into their correct positions.
