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.
Drawer refrigerators are provided with anti-tip brackets. Always install
prior to use.
Proper Disposal of Your Old Appliance
e
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.
Felix Storch, Inc.

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
Felix Storch, Inc.

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline,
away from appliances. Failure to do so can result in fire,
explosion or death.
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 1” (2.5 cm) of
airspace at the top and on both sides of the appliance and 1” (2.5 cm)
between the back of the appliance and the wall. If the appliance is going
to be placed against a wall, leave extra space on the hinge side so the
door can open wider than its width.
Note: This appliance may be installed side by side with another
appliance or appliances. Allow for a 3” (7.5 cm) clearance at the top
and sides and a ¼” (0.64 cm) clearance between the appliances. IF
YOUR MODEL HAS THE LETTERS “BI” IN THE SUFFIX, IT IS
DESIGNED FOR BUILT-IN USE, AND DOES NOT REQUIRE
CLEARANCE EXCEPT IN THE BACK.
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 20amp 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.
Felix Storch, Inc.
Page 4
Level your appliance (some upright models)
1. 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.
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.
Note: If your model is equipped with front rollers, the front legs should be
lowered enough to lift the rollers off of the floor to ensure the appliance
does not roll forward when the door is opened.
4. Place a leveling tool on top of the appliance, first side to side, then front to
back. Turn leg counterclockwise 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 off 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 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 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 just inside the side walls, making these walls warm to the touch.).
ENERGY-SAVING TIPS



The more airflow you can provide around an appliance, the less energy it will
use.
If your appliance requires manual defrosting, keep ice build-up to less than 1/2
inch.
Keep doors open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
Felix Storch, Inc.

REVERSING THE DOOR SWING
(Selected models)
If you find the direction of opening the door on your appliance inconvenient, you
can change it. Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared in the
factory.
For two-door units:
 Take off the upper hinge cover from the top 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 top door to free its bottom socket from the hinge
pin on the central hinge bracket.
 Remove the screws to the central hinge to free its pin
from the top of the lower door.
 Lift the door up and away from the bottom hinge
pin.
 Remove the screws to the bottom hinge.
 Remove the decorative caps from the opposite
side and install the bottom hinge. Plug the holes
from the original side with the decorative caps.
 Replace door onto the pin on the bottom hinge,
then install the central hinge into lower door.
 Insert screws into the central hinge and plug the
holes on the reverse side.
 Replace the upper door onto the central hinge pin.
 Insert screws into the top hinge and tighten.
For one-door units:
 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. Install any lock washers or nuts
if they were used in the original installation.
 Replace door onto the hinge pin on the bottom
hinge. Place top hinge pin into door. Insert screws
into the top hinge and tighten.

APPLIANCE CARE
Cleaning Your Frost-Free Refrigerator
(including models beginning with SCFF, SCFR, SCUF, SCUR)
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
4.
5.
6.
7.
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 surfaces.
Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
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.
Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
Replace all containers.
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 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.

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 Care
1. Remove all containers.
2. Unplug the appliance.
3. Clean it thoroughly.
4. Tape the appliance shut and tape the electrical cord to the cabinet.
When you get to your new location, refer to the Installation Instructions
and Temperature Selection sections for information on installation and
setting the controls.

TEMPERATURE SELECTION
YOUR APPLIANCE MAY HAVE A MECHANICAL (DIAL) OR
DIGITAL THERMOSTAT. DIAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE BELOW.
DIGITAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE ON PAGE 10.
HOW TO ADJUST THE THERMOSTAT
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.
Temperature Controls




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 knob.
In STOP (0) position, the appliance does not operate (the cooling
system is switched off), yet the power supply is not interrupted (the
light is 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.

OPERATION OF SPECIFIC MODELS
SCFF55LMED Series
These are built-in, frost-free units that do not require defrosting. 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. The thermostat is located at the top right of the unit.
Felix Storch, Inc.
Page 12
SPECIFIC MODELS (cont’d)
FF6L, FF7L, FF28L, FF29BL, FF32L, FF511L, FF521L, FF560L, FFAR2L,
FFAR9L, FFAR10, FFAR21L, FFAR22L, SCR450L, SCR500BL, SCR600L,
SP6DS2D7, SP6DS7, SP6DSSTB7 MED Series
These models are all-refrigerator (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 except FF511LMED, FF521BLMED, FFAR21L and FFAR22L 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 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 keep the light off for best operation and energy
savings. FF6 models, FF560L models, FFAR9L models and FFAR10L models all have door-activated
lights. Smaller models and drawer models do not have interior lights.
NOTE: Models with BI in the model number, and all drawer units, are designed for built-in operation
and do not need clearance on the sides or above the units. All other models require 1 inch of airflow
on the sides and above the units. All models operate best when 1 inch is provided between the rear
wall and the back of the unit.
CF05, CF07ES, FCL44, FS20L, FS21L, FS22L, FS60L, FS62L, FS407L,
FS408BL, SCF401SS, UF850L, VT65ML MED Series
These are manual defrost all-freezers. 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). (Chest freezer
CF07ESMED has a built-in drain outlet.)
For built-in (BI) models and clearance information, see Note above.
SCFF Series / SCFR Series (except SCFF55 series – See page 12)
These models are chest freezers or chest refrigerators, all completely frost-free with forced air
cooling. No defrosting is normally needed. For best operation, allow free airflow within the interior (do
not overfill). The thermostat is located on the bottom rear on the right side of the unit. Large sizes may
have lid-activated lights. The lights will generate some heat, so be careful to close lids securely to
deactivate.
SCUF18, SCUF20, SCUF25, SCUR18, SCUR20, SCUR25
The thermostat for these models is located on the exterior top of the units, and is always digital (see
Page 10 for instructions). All units are fully frost-free and normally never require defrosting. If supplied
with casters (standard), operate with at least two in the locked position, and never move units with
contents inside. If supplied with 6-inch legs (optional), the hex nut on the bottom of the legs can be
rotated to level the unit.
VT, VLT Low-Temperature freezer models
These models are all manual defrost, upright or chest type freezers. Keep door closed for best
operation, and follow defrosting instructions at the top of this page. The thermostats for these models
are always digital, so follow directions on Page 10. VERY LOW TEMPERATURE FREEZERS CAN
DAMAGE UNPROTECTED SKIN, SO ALWAYS WEAR GLOVES WHEN OPENING FREEZERS,
AND NEVER DISCARD THE WARNING LABELS ON THE FRONT OF THE FREEZER! These
freezers will operate best when adequate airflow is provided on the top, sides and rear of the unit. The
compressor on some models is fan-cooled, so be sure not to block the air vents on the compressor
housing. The refrigerant in low temperature freezers is different from that used in household
appliances, so never have unqualified technicians attempt to repair these units. These units will
operate best under some load, so try to avoid operating empty or nearly empty. If needed, fill with icepacks to at least 25% of the volume of the freezer.
Felix Storch, Inc.

SPECIFIC MODELS (cont’d)
CP35LL, CT66L MED Series
These models are cycle defrost refrigerator-freezers. The freezers are designed to operate at 0°F
(-18°C), suitable for medical or laboratory uses. Both models have dual evaporators to maintain
separate temperatures in the freezer and refrigerator. Defrost the freezer carefully, as directed on the
previous page 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 on page 13.
CM411LMED, CM421BLMED, S19LMED
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 on the previous page. 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 on page 13.
CP171MED
This model has a separate refrigerator (top) section with automatic defrost, and a freezer (lower)
section with manual defrost, each with its own compressor and thermostat for totally independent
control. The thermostats are both located on the top, on the exterior of the unit, and are more easily
accessed with the refrigerator door opened. This unit has no internal fans. Defrost as needed (see
page 13). For clearance information, see Note on page 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.
Felix Storch, Inc.
Page 14
TROUBLESHOOTING (cont’d)
 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.
