IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance.
Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the Safety Alert Symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential
hazards that can kill or injure you and others. All safety messages will
follow the Safety Alert Symbol and either the words ”DANGER” or
“WARNING”.
DANGER means that failure to heed this
safety statement may result in severe
personal injury or death.
WARNING means that failure to heed
this safety statement may result in
extensive product damage, serious
personal injury, or death.
Safety messages will alert you to what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance
of injury, and let you know what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
Before the freezer is used, it must be properly positioned and installed as
described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the risk
of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the freezer, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter,
and do not use an extension cord.
• It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your freezer, be provided. Use
receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
• Never clean freezer parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
• Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line of the
unit is disconnected.
• Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
• Unplug the freezer or disconnect the power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so can
result in electrical shock or death.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your freezer unless it is specifically
recommended in this material. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
1
• NOTE: Models FS407L and FS408BL (no “BI” suffix) are not designed to operate in
enclosed spaces. When placing your unit, make sure you allow adequate airflow
around it, at least 4” on both sides, at the back and at the top.
• Use two or more people to move and install the freezer. Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
• To ensure proper ventilation for your freezer, the front of the unit must be completely
°
°
unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 60 F (16 C) and below
°
°
90 F (32 C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the elements, such as wind,
rain, water spray or drips.
• The freezer should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
• The freezer must be installed with all electrical connections in accordance with state and local
codes. A standard electrical supply (115V AC only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in accordance
with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required.
• Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of the freezer.
• The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amperes.
• It is important for the freezer to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to make
several adjustments to level it.
• Never allow children to operate, play with or crawl inside the freezer.
• Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These cleaners may
damage or discolor the interior.
• Do not use this apparatus for other than its intended purpose.
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators and freezers are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few
days.”
• Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer: Take off the doors. Leave
the shelves or drawers in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
• Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the refrigerator/freezer.
THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY YOUNG CHILDREN OR INFIRM PERONS
UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN ADEQUATELY SUPERVISED BY A RESPONSIBLE PERSON TO
ENSURE THAT THEY CAN USE THE APPLIANCE SAFELY. YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE
SUPERVISED TO ENSURE THAT THEY DO NOT PLAY WITH THE APPLIANCE.

THEY ARE NOT INTENDED FOR USE AS HOUSEHOLD FREEZERS.
Installation Instructions
Before Using Your Freezer:
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Check to be sure you have all of the following parts: 4 drawers, 1 handle with screws
and handle seal, and 2 keys.
• Before connecting the unit to the power source, let it stand for approximately 2 hours.
This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling
during transportation.
• Remove the drawers and clean them and the interior surfaces of the unit with
lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing the Freezer:
• Place your unit on a floor that is strong enough to support the appliance when it is
fully loaded. To level your unit, adjust the leveling legs at the bottom.
• Models FS407L and FS408BL are designed to be free-standing only, and should not
be recessed or built in. On the other hand, models FS407LBI and FS408BLBI are
specifically designed to be built-in.
• Models FS407L and FS408BL: When installing, allow at least 4 inches of space at the
back and sides of the unit, which will allow the proper air circulation to cool the
compressor and condenser.
• Models FS407LBI and FS408BLBI: These built-in models are designed to be
installed under the counter in a 21-inch opening. When installing, provide the
following clearances to ensure the best operation and proper ventilation: 1/4” on
both sides, 2” at the rear and 1/16” at the top. Be sure that airflow under the
4
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 storage bins).
• Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator,
etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase
electrical consumption. Extremely cold ambient temperatures may also affect the
unit's performance.
• Avoid locating the unit in moist areas. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost to
form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent defrosting of the freezer.
• Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall outlet. Do not
under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a
certified electrician or authorized service center.
Electrical Connection:
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power
cord is damaged, have it replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with a standard three-prong wall outlet to
minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power
cord supplied. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This unit requires a standard 115-volt AC/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your
responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall
outlet.
To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured behind the unit and not left
exposed or dangling.
The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a
voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best
performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. Never unplug the unit by pulling on the power cord.
Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace
immediately any power cord that has become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use
a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When
moving the unit, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord:
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

Operating Your Freezer
Temperature Control:
•
The temperature control is located at the rear bottom corner of the freezer.
• When you turn the unit on for the first time, set the control to its maximum
position, 6, using a coin or flathead screwdriver.
• The range of the temperature control is from position 1 (warmest) to 6. After
24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suits
your needs. A setting of 3~4 should be correct for normal freezer use.
• To turn the appliance off, you must unplug it.
NOTE: If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off, you must wait 3 to
5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time
delay, the freezer will not start.
Defrosting Your Freezer:
For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption, defrost the
freezer when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive or 1/4 inch thick.
1. To start defrosting, unplug the freezer and remove stored contents and
drawers. Contents should be placed in a cooler to keep them from thawing.
2. Use a sponge or toweling to remove water and melting ice from the freezer
floor. After the frost or ice has melted, dry the interior of the freezer thoroughly.
3. Restart the freezer by plugging it in and turning the thermostat to the desired
position. Once it is cold, return the drawers and contents to the freezer.
CAUTION: Do not use boiling water to help speed up defrosting because this
could damage the plastic parts of the unit. In addition, never use a sharp or
metallic instrument to remove frost as it may damage the cooling coils and will
void the warranty. We recommend using a plastic scraper.
Storing Frozen Items:
•
•
•
•
•
This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of medical products.
Storage life varies and the recommended storage time should not be
exceeded. The instructions regarding the care of frozen items should be
followed when defrosting the freezer.
Pre-packed commercially frozen items should be stored in accordance with
the manufacturer's instructions for a three-star freezer.
Place frozen items into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If
there are instructions on the packet, carefully follow them regarding storage
times.
Do not allow ice to build up excessively. Be sure to defrost when the ice
reaches a thickness of 1/4 inch (see Defrosting Your Freezer above).

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning Your Freezer:
1. Unplug the freezer and remove frozen items and drawers.
2. Wash the inside surfaces with a solution of warm water and baking soda. The
solution should contain about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of
water.
3. Wash the drawers with a mild detergent solution.
4. Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse
well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the
temperature control or any electrical parts.
CAUTION: Failure to unplug the unit could result in electrical shock or personal
injury.
Power Failure:
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your freezer if you minimize the number of times the door is
opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to
take the proper steps to protect the contents of the freezer.
Vacation Time:
During long absences, remove all stored items. Unplug the freezer, clean it and
leave the door open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold or
odors.
Moving Your Freezer:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Remove all contents.
Securely tape down all loose items such as drawers inside your unit.
Turn the leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.
Tape the door shut.
Be sure the freezer stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
Energy-Saving Tips:
•
The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heatproducing appliances or heating ducts and out of direct sunlight.
• Hot items should be allowed to cool to room temperature before being placed
in the freezer. Overloading the unit forces the compressor to run longer. Items
that freeze too slowly may lose quality or spoil.
• Be sure to wrap items properly and wipe containers dry before placing them in
the freezer. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the unit.
8
•
Freezer storage drawers should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper or
paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the freezer
less efficient.
• Organize and label stored items to reduce door openings and extended
searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door
as soon as possible.
