To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or
injury when using your freezer, follow these
basic precautions:
Read all instructions before using the freezer.
DANGER or WARNING: 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: Take off the doors. Leave the shelves in
place so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
Never clean appliance parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard
or explosion.
Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
-Save these instructions-
Before Using Your Freezer
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
Storage Basket
1 – Instruction Manual
1 – Plastic Scraper
Before connecting the freezer to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours.
This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during
Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installation of Your Freezer
This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
Place your appliance on a floor that is strong enough to support the appliance when it is fully
Allow 5 inches of space between the back and sides of the appliance, which allows the proper air
circulation to cool the compressor and condenser.
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.
Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the freezer not to perform properly.
Avoid locating the appliance 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 appliance 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 electrician or an authorized
Avanti Products service center.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2~3 hours before
placing food in the freezer compartment.
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 an authorized Avanti Products service center.
This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of
electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
This freezer requires a standard 115Volts~/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.
The cord should be secured behind the freezer and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental
Never unplug the freezer by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from
the receptacle.
Do not use an extension cord with this freezer. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician
or service technician install an outlet near the freezer.
The “POWER” light indicates that the freezer is properly connected to the electrical power. The light
indicates power supply, and will glow even if the compressor has failed to work and the compartment is
not being cooled.
 Extension Cord
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not
use an extension cord with this unit. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely
necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding
type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at least 10 amperes.
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very
susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges / outages;
it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you use. The
surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the appliance it is
connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector needed contact a
licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your
product warranty.
Temperature Control
Your unit is designed to be used either as a freezer or a refrigerator. You can adjust the temperature
control to select the refrigerator or freezer function according to the purpose of use.
• Your unit has one control for regulating the temperature. The temperature control is located on
the side of the unit at the lower left hand corner.
To use as a freezer, turn the temperature control clockwise to the position marked “7” or “FAST FREEZE”
in area marked “FREEZER”, after 2 hours, adjust the control knob the position that best suits your
• The range of the temperature control for the freezer operation is from position "4" the warmest to
"7" the coldest. Adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suits your needs. The
setting of “5 or 6” should be correct for home or office freezer use.
• To turn the freezer off, unplug the unit.
To use as a refrigerator, you may set temperature accordingly by turning the dial clockwise from the “1”
position. The temperature control is marked “REFRIGERATOR” with a scale showing minimum
cooling to the maximum cooling position.
• The range of the temperature control for the refrigerator operation is from position "1" the
warmest to "3" the coldest. Adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suits your
needs. The setting of “2” should be correct for home or office freezer use.
• If the unit is unplugged, lost power, or 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.
• Large amounts of food will lower the cooling efficiency of the appliance.
• If you choose to change the thermostat setting, adjust thermostat control by one numerical
increment at a time. Allow several hours for temperature to stabilize between adjustments.
Fast Freeze Setting (Position # 7 in the Freezer Operation Mode)
The switch overrides the thermostat and will make the compressor operate continuously, lowering the
cabinet temperature still further than the thermostat setting.
This switch is used to freeze unfrozen food in appreciable quantities.
When loading the freezer, freeze only three pounds of fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at
one time.
Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the freezer.
Defrosting Your Freezer
• When? For the most efficient operation and minimum energy consumption, defrost the freezer
when the frost on the freezer walls is excessive or ¼ to ½ inch thick.
• Choose a time when the stock of frozen food is low.
Do not use boiling water because it may damage the plastic parts. 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 the plastic scraper provided with your unit.
Remove the frozen food from the freezer and place it in a cooler to protect the food.
Unplug the freezer.
During the defrost process, the ice melts into the cabinet.
Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by screwing out.
Place a shallow pan outside drain outlet. The defrost water will drain out.
Check the pan occasionally so the water does not overflow.
Clean the interior of the freezer.
Replace the plug on the inside floor.
Reset the thermostat to desired setting.
Allow the cabinet to cool for one hour.
Turn the temperature control knob in a clockwise direction to the maximum position “7” for a
minimum of 2 hours.
Return food to the freezer.
Defrosting usually takes a few hours. Leaving the door open will help speed the process. Also,
pouring warm water (not boiling) on the ice/frost will help speed melting. If you must use a
scraper- please use caution - it is very easy to damage the freezer compartment and void your
The Freezer Compartment
• This compartment is designed for the long term storage of frozen food. Storage time is up to
three months.
• The storage life of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be
exceeded. The instructions regarding the care of frozen foods should be followed when
defrosting the freezer.
• Pre-packed commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen foods
manufacturer’s instructions for a three star frozen food storage compartment or home freezer.
• Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are instructions
on the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.
• The freezer door is susceptible to breaking due to excessive ice build up. Be sure to defrost
when the ice reaches ¼ to ½ inch thick.
• Storage basket is provided for the organization of odd-shaped items. To reach other packages in
the freezer, just slide the basket to one side, or lift it out.
Door Lock
Your unit is provided with a lock and key combination. The keys are located inside the plastic bag that
contains the User's Guide. Insert the key into the lock and turn it clockwise to unlock the door. To lock
the door do the reverse operation making sure metal pin is engaged completely. Remove the key and
place it in a secure place for safekeeping.
Cleaning Your Freezer
• Upon installation of your new appliance, it is recommended that it be cleaned thoroughly.
• Unplug the freezer, remove the food and storage baskets.
• Wash the inside with a damp warm cloth containing a water and baking soda solution. The
solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
• Wash the storage baskets with a mild detergent solution.
• Be sure to keep the door gasket (seal) clean to keep the unit running efficiently.
• The outside of the freezer should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
• Dry the interior and exterior with a soft cloth.
• It is recommended that the unit be cleaned each time it is defrosted to help keep the unit odor
free and running efficiently.
Vacation Time
• Use extreme caution in the case of children. The unit should not be accessible to child’s play.
• Short vacations: Leave the freezer operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
• Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug
the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave
the door open slightly: blocking it open if necessary or have the door removed.
Moving Your Freezer
• Remove all the food.
• Securely tape down all loose items inside your freezer.
• Remove the rollers to prevent damage
• Tape the doors shut.
• Be sure the freezer stays in the upright position during transportation.
Energy Saving Tips
• The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing
appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the freezer. Overloading the freezer
forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the freezer. This
cuts down on frost build-up inside the freezer.
• Freezer storage bin 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 food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many
items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.

posible de cosas que necesita a la vez y cierre la puerta del congelador tan pronto le sea posible.
