IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Before the appliance 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 appliance, follow basic precautions,
including the following:

Read all instructions before using the freezer.

Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter, and do
not use an extension cord.

Replace all panels before operating.

It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your appliance be provided. Use receptacles
that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.

Never clean appliance 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.

Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.

Unplug the appliance or disconnect 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 appliance unless it is specifically recommended in
this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
DANGER:
Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
appliances are still dangerous…even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
Before you throw away your old freezer or any appliance:
Remove the door.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
FOLLOW WARNING CALLOUTS BELOW ONLY WHEN APPLICABLE TO YOUR MODEL

Use two or more people to move and install appliance. Failure to do so can result in back or other
injury.

To ensure proper ventilation for your appliance, the front of the unit must be completely unobstructed.
Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 44°F (7°C) and below 90°F (32°C).

The appliance should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.

The appliance must be installed with all electrical, water and drain connections in accordance with
state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115 V 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 appliance.

The size of the fuse (or circuit breaker) should be 15 amperes.

It is important that the appliance be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to make several
3
adjustments to level it.

All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.

Make certain that the pipes are not pinched, kinked or damaged during installation.

Check for leaks after connection.

Never allow children to operate, play with or crawl inside the appliance.

Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These cleaners may damage or
discolor the interior.

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.

Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas. Clearances between the door and cabinet are necessarily
small. Be careful closing door when children are in the area.

Technical specifications are subject to change without notice.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before Using Your Freezer
1. Remove the exterior and interior packing.
2. CAUTION: After unpacking you MUST allow this appliance to stand upright for at least 2 hours to allow
the lubricant and refrigerant to drain back into the compressor and stabilize. Failure to do so may
adversely affect performance and the lifetime of this unit.
3. Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
4. Install the handle on the left side of the door.
Installation of Your Freezer

This appliance is designed for free standing or built-in (fully recessed) installation.

Place your freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded. To level your
freezer, adjust the front leveling legs.

For free-standing installation, 5” (127mm) of space between the back and sides of the unit, and 4”
(102mm) at the top, are suggested, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor and
condenser. Even for built-in installation, it is a must to keep ¼” (6.35mm) space on each side and at
the top and 2” (51mm) at the rear. If the unit has an air vent at the front, take care that it is never
covered or blocked in any way.

Locate the freezer 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 cause the unit not to perform properly.

Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.

Plug the freezer into an exclusive, properly installed-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 or authorized product service center.
Reversing the Door Swing of the Freezer
This appliance has the capability of the door opening from either the left or right side. The unit is delivered
to you with the door opening from the left side. Should you desire to reverse the opening direction, please
follow the instructions below. To make the reversal, you will find two hardware pieces in a plastic bag inside
the appliance: the top left hinge and the bottom left hinge. The bottom support bracket is used for both
sides.

OPERATING YOUR FREEZER
Control Panel
The freezer should be placed where the ambient temperature is between 61 and 90°F (16 to 32°C). If the
ambient temperature is above or below this range, the performance of the unit may be affected. For
example, placing your unit in extremely cold or hot conditions may cause interior temperature to fluctuate.
Control panel
ON/OFF Power
To turn the appliance on or off, press the ON/OFF button.
Setting the Temperature Control

Connect the power cord to a properly grounded outlet. In the event of a power interruption, all
previous temperature settings are automatically erased and the compartment will default to a
preset temperature setting of -18°C (-0.4°F).

Set the desired cooling temperature by pressing the corresponding button
or
. Each
depression of the buttons will raise or lower the temperature setting by 1 degree. The temperature
selected will flash in the LED display for approximately 5 seconds, then revert back to display the
temperature of the interior cabinet.
NOTES:
 The temperature setting can be adjusted from -10°C to -30°C(from 14°F to -22°F).
 To view the “set” temperature anytime, press
in the LED display for 5 seconds.
or
once. The “set” temperature will flash
 This unit has the option of displaying temperatures in either Celsius or Fahrenheit. To change
the setting, press the °C/°F button.
 The temperature inside the cabinet may vary slightly depending on whether stored items are
located in the upper/middle or lower section.

“Fast Freeze” Function
If you press and hold the °C/°F button for 3 seconds, the unit will enter the “Fast Freeze” mode. In this
mode, press the
and
buttons to set the fast freezing time. The setting time range is 1 to 10
hours, and the default setting time is 3 hours. If you set the fast freezing time longer than 4 hours, the
unit will defrost itself at the end of the “Fast Freeze” cycle. To stop the “Fast Freeze” function, again
press the °C/°F button and hold it for at least 3 seconds.
Defrosting
The freezer’s frost-free feature eliminates the need for manual defrosting. Defrosting takes place
approximately every 14 hours (except when in the “Fast Freeze” mode); the defrost cycle lasts about
40 minutes. Melt water from the defrosting collects in a drip tray where it is evaporated. During the
process of defrosting, the temperature display may be higher than the set temperature.
You can force the unit into defrost mode at any time by pressing and holding the
button for 3
seconds.
NOTES:
 If the unit is unplugged, turned off or if there is a power failure, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes
before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the freezer will not
work.
 When you use the freezer for the first time, or restart it after it has been shut off for a long time,
there could be a few degrees variance between the temperature you select and the one
indicated on the LED readout. This is normal and is due to the length of the inactivation time.
Once the freezer has been running for a few hours, everything should normalize.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Freezer

Turn off the power, unplug the appliance, and remove all items including shelves and racks.

Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. Prepare the solution by
mixing about 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a quart of water.

Wash the shelves with a mild detergent solution.

Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning the area of the controls, or any
electrical parts.

Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and a mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a
clean soft cloth.
Power Failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature
of your appliance if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If your 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.
Vacations
Leave the freezer operating during vacations of less than three weeks. If you turn off the
freezer for an extended period, leave the door slightly ajar to prevent the buildup of odors.
Transporting Your Freezer
If you need to move your freezer once the box has been discarded:
1. Securely tape down all loose items (shelves) inside your appliance.
2. Turn the adjustable leg up to the base to avoid damage.
3. Tape the door shut.
4. Be sure the appliance stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect the
outside of the appliance with a blanket or similar item.
Energy-Saving Tip
The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances
and out of direct sunlight.
