Thank you for purchasing the SUMMIT® Portable Refrigerator/
Freezer. This is an advanced refrigeration unit, combining the latest in compressor and computerized digital control technology.
The high efficiency of the compressor will freeze to below 0°F at
an ambient temperature of 86°F, and the unit can also be used as
a portable refrigerator or cooler.
Like all SUMMIT® products, this unit has been manufactured to
the high standards identified with the SUMMIT® name. We fully
expect it to bring you many years of excellent service.
Please read this manual before installing and using the unit, and
keep the manual in a handy spot for future reference.

Appliance Safety
Your safety and the safety of others are very important to us.
We have provided several important safety messages in this
manual. Always read and obey all safety messages. Serious
injury or even death can be the result if you do not follow these
instructions. All safety messages will tell you what the potential
hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you
what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
SUMMIT APPLIANCE
WARNING! To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury
when using your appliance, follow these basic precautions:
 Keep cooler upright when it is turned on and while in use.
 Never turn on the cooler with wet hands or when your feet are
in contact with water.
 If connected to a DC power source (for example, a cigarette
lighter socket) in a vehicle, do not attempt to power up the
cooler when vehicle engine is not turned on.
 Always be sure the correct voltage and current are applied to
the cooler. The voltage and current are clearly marked on the
manufacturer’s label which can be found on the side of the
cooler.
 Be sure the power source can safely supply the required cur-
rent when you use the AC/DC adapter.
 Do not carry corrosives or solvents in the cooler.
 Never obstruct the vents as they supply necessary airflow to
motors and fans.
 Do not fill cooler with liquid or ice.
 Disconnect power before servicing or cleaning.
 Use nonflammable cleaners.
 Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away
from the cooler.

Applications
The cooler is perfect for traveling, picnics, camping, trucking and
other outdoor activities. Indoors, the appliance adapts itself to
many uses requiring either freezing or just cooling. Just use the
supplied AC/DC adapter in combination with the DC/DC power
cord and set the controls as described in Setting the Temperature,
page 7.
Model SPRF26M is the ideal choice if you wish to refrigerate
medical supplies. It not only allows precise control of temperature, but comes with a lock and a trolley for easy transporting.
(Before storing temperature-sensitive material, check that the
cooling capacity of the unit meets the temperature recommendation listed on the medication.)
Celsius Temperature Readout
You’ll notice that the temperature readout on the LED display of
your cooler is in Celsius degrees rather than Fahrenheit. You can
use the graph below to quickly convert one temperature scale into
the other. For example, to change 32°F into °C, find 32 on the
horizontal Fahrenheit scale, trace up to the inclined line, then
move left to the vertical axis. That reading, 0, is the Celsius
equivalent of 32°F. Reverse the procedure to change Celsius to
Fahrenheit.

Before First Use
What you should expect to find in the carton
Check to be sure that all of the following items have been included
in the carton along with this manual:
1 compressor freezer, model SPRF26
1 DC/DC power cord
1 AC/DC adapter
Clean Before Using
After you remove the unit from its packaging, clean the inside before using. See cleaning instructions in the Cleaning section of
this manual.
Installation
1. Place cooler on a dry surface where it is protected from water.
2. The cooler should not be used where it may be exposed to rain.
3. Never locate the cooler where the ambient temperature is below 0°C (32°F).
ALLOW COOLER TO SIT UPRIGHT FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE
TURNING ON, TO ALLOW THE COMPRESSOR LUBRICANT TO
DRAIN.
Keep flammable materials and vapors such as gasoline away from
appliances. Failure to do so can result in fire or explosion.
Electrical Connection
The cooler can be operated from either a DC or an AC power
source. Both require the use of the DC/DC power cord included
with the unit. With an AC source, the included AC/DC adapter
must be plugged into the end of the DC/DC power cord, then connected to an AC source such as a wall socket.
DC Source: The cooler can be operated between 10.3V and 17V
DC, or between 22V and 30V DC. Before connection, check
that the battery voltage falls within these ranges. If the voltage
is out of range, the cooler will not operate. Excessive voltage
could damage the electronic components of the cooler.
AC Source: Be sure to use the AC/DC adapter when your power
source is AC, otherwise the cooler could be damaged.
SUMMIT APPLIANCE
Setting the Temperature
1. Plug the DC/DC power cord into the cord socket on the side of
the unit (see upper figure on page 5).
2. If using a DC power source such as the cigarette lighter socket
of a vehicle, plug the other end of the cord into the power
source.
3. If using an AC power source, connect the AC/DC adapter to
the end of the DC/DC cord, then plug the adapter into a wall
socket or other AC power source.
4. Press the power switch to turn on the cooler. (You will hear the
sound of the compressor starting.)
5. Press the Up or Down button on the control panel to adjust the
temperature. Pressing either button once will adjust the temperature by 1Celsius degree. The maximum cool setting is
-19°C (-2.2°F).
6. Five seconds after the desired temperature is set, you will hear
5 beeps to confirm the setting and the LED display will begin to
show the actual temperature inside the unit.
Typically, if the ambient temperature is 30°C (86°F) and the
temperature on the unit is set to -18°C (-0.4°F), the interior of the
unit will reach the freezing point of water (0°C) in about 30
minutes, and will reach the set temperature in about 1½ hours.
NOTE: The compressor will shut off if the internal temperature of
the unit is 1 Celsius degree or more below the set temperature.
When the internal temperature rises to 2 degrees above the set
temperature, the compressor will turn on again after an interval
of about 2 minutes.
Energy-Saving Tips
 Place the cooler in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
 Cool the food or drink before storing in the cooler.
 Do not set the temperature colder than you require.
 Do not open the cooler more often than necessary.
 Do not leave the lid open longer than necessary,

Storage
When storing your cooler, we recommend that you leave the lid
open slightly. This will help keep mold from forming and prevent
stale odors. It’s a good idea to follow the cleaning procedure
(below) before storing your cooler.
Cleaning
 Clean your cooler with a soft cloth moistened with lukewarm
water.
 Avoid getting water droplets in the vents, as this may lead to
damage to the electronic components.
 Use a soft dry cloth to dry the cooler completely after cleaning.
 Clean the cooler after use and before storage.
ATTENTION: Never use solvents or abrasive cleaners, as this will
damage the cooler. Do not use scouring agents or scrapers
when cleaning your cooler.
