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 killed or seriously injured 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS!
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when
using your refrigerator/freezer, 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
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.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
UNPACKING
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 the cleaning instructions in “Appliance Care.”
6. All upright models have level legs in the front and many also have them in the rear. 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.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from appliances. Failure to do so can result in
explosion, or fire.
LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT: Do not install the appliance near an oven, radiator, or other heat source, nor in a
location where the temperature will fall below 45°F (7°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, if possible, leave extra space on the hinge side so the door can
open wider than its width (to make it easier to remove shelves or storage bins).
NOTE: This appliance may be installed side by side with another appliance. Allow for a 3’’ (7.5
cm) clearance at the top and sides, and a ¼” (0.64 cm) clearance between the appliances.
The greater the airflow and ventilation you provide for your appliance—the higher its energy efficiency and
performance will be.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLACE
Place the appliance in a dry and regularly ventilated place. It is recommended that this appliance always be operated in an
ambient temperature of at least 60°F and under 85°F. The appliance may be exposed to lower or higher temperatures but only for a
short period of time and the temperature should never be lower than 45°F. Never place the appliance near heat emitting devices
(e.g. cooker, radiator, water heater or similar devices) and do not expose it to direct sunlight.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz. AC only 15- or 20- amp fused or circuit breaker, grounded electrical supply 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. Connect
this appliance to a 3 prong power supply socket outlet (which has a ground terminal). If you only have a two prong outlet have it
replaced by a qualified technician with an outlet that meets the local codes. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD. Required
nominal voltage and frequency are indicated on the rating plate. The connection to the power supply and grounding has to be
made according to current standards and regulations. The appliance resists temporary voltage tolerance from -15 to 10%.
ON OUTDOOR MODELS ONLY
NEVER USE INDOOR RATED APPLIANCES OUTDOORS. Summit manufactures refrigerators and freezers specifically for outdoor
use and these are the only ones that should be used outdoors.
Electrical Shock Hazard. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter.
Many outdoor outlets are controlled by wall switches. Turning off power and on again may cause the GFCI switch to trip.
A GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) is built into every line cord. Do not defeat or bypass this important safety feature. The line
cord supplied with this appliance is specially designed for outdoor use. Use only a factory supplied replacement cord with a GFCI
(ground fault circuit interrupter) in the event the cord becomes damaged.
You may purchase these cords from either our sales or service department at 718-893-3900 (sales) or 718-328-8700 (service).
It can also be ordered online from www.summitapplianceparts.com
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• The more airflow you can provide around an appliance, the less energy it will use.
• If your appliance needs defrosting, keep ice build-up to less than 1/2 inch.
• Keep doors or drawers open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
LEVELING YOUR APPLIANCE
1. Locate the two front leveling legs taped among the packing materials. In most 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 of the floor.
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 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 cold, It may
take up to 6 or 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 inside the side walls, making
these walls warm to the touch.
REVERSING THE DOOR SWING (Selected models)
If you find the direction of opening the door on your appliance inconvenient, on some models you can change it.
Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared in the factory. On models with our wrapped stainless steel
door and 12 inch pro handle, (suffix SSTB, SSVH or CSS or with optional handles “TB” or “SH” ) you must order
these with either a right hand or left hand door swing in advance. These doors cannot be reversed. Models with a
suffix SSHH, BIFR, BIIF, and CSSHH can be reversed.
TO REVERSE YOUR DOOR
• 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 away to free its bottom socket from the hinge pin.
• Remove the screws to the bottom hinge.
• Remove the decorative caps from opposite side and plug the holes from original side with the decorative caps.
• Move the bottom hinge to the opposite side and tighten the screws. Use any lock washers or nuts if they were
installed 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.
If you notice the door not hanging straight—loosen the top hinges, adjust the door until it is level and tighten the
screws.

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 whenever 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 “Appliance Use” sections for information on installation and setting the controls.
When transporting appliances, it is recommended that you transport it upright.

APPLIANCE CARE
Cleaning Your Frost-Free Refrigerator
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 2 tbs (26 mg) 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 materials.
4. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Use the appropriate cleaning method for your 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.
6. Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
7. Replace all containers.
Stainless steel: Clean stainless steel with special stainless steel cleaners only. Do not use bleach or any abrasive cleaners.
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 ICESCRAPER OR A HAIR DRYER.
Clean surfaces, using the same instructions as for frost-free models.
For CSS Models (completely stainless steel) or models with stainless steel doors and
handles; please use only cleaners especially made for stainless steel.

TEMPERATURE SELECTION
YOUR APPLIANCE MAY HAVE A MECHANICAL (DIAL) OR DIGITAL THERMOSTAT.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BOTH FOLLOW:
MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT INSTRUCTIONS
The refrigerator is controlled with a thermostat knob located inside the unit, towards the upper 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.
On the coldest settings temperatures in some spots of the interior of the appliance may even drop below 32°F. Use
higher thermostat settings only when required or recommended. When the ambient temperature is normal, we
recommend the medium setting.
•Changes of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the appliance so choose a correct setting of the
thermostat knob, depending on your ambient conditions.
•In the STOP (0) position the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is switched off), yet 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.
DIGITAL THERMOSTAT INSTRUCTIONS
If you find that it is necessary to change the temperature setting for your digital thermostat controlled appliance, please refer to the
following instructions. The front panel of the thermostat is illustrated here:
melting snowflake

To see the SETPOINT:
Push and immediately release the SET key -the display will show the SET point value. Wait 5 seconds and the probe value will
display again.
To change the SETPOINT:
Push and hold the SET key for more then 3 seconds to change the set point value; The value of the set point will be displayed, and
the “snowflake” LED will start blinking.
To change the SET value:
Push the up or down arrows to the desired setting; the new setting will be memorized after 15 seconds, provided no other
keys are pushed.
Note: The minimum and maximum range of your thermostat is preset and locked by us; so it cannot easily be accidentally moved
between freezer and refrigerator temperatures. To reset this range lock, either call us or find information on our website under

APPLIANCE OPERATION
FF6- FF7– FF8—SCR600 – AL7 Series, with no freezer compartment.
DEFROST SYSTEM, OPERATION AND SHELF ADJUSTMENT - All models of the above series are allrefrigerators, with no freezer compartment and an auto-defrost system. During the compressor operation, ice will
build along the rear cold wall (the evaporator plate is behind the wall). During the compressor’s off-cycle, ice will melt,
drip down, collect in the trough at the bottom and drain through the small hole into a tray above the compressor;
where the compressor’s heat will evaporate the water. If you notice excessive ice build-up on the rear wall, try setting
the thermostat to a slightly warmer setting; be sure that the gasket is sealing well – that there is no obstruction of the
drain hole in the bottom rear of these units. Models with black cabinets include glass shelves. These shelves stop
short an inch before the back wall, which is essential for air flow and the automatic defrost system. Do not block with
food or containers. All models have removable easily adjustable shelves. To remove a shelf, simply lift the rear of the
shelf out of its locking position and slide the shelves forward. Replace shelves the same way, being sure they lock
into place. The thermostat of these units is located on the right hand side top, as you face the refrigerator. Turn
clockwise for colder operation, and counter clockwise to save energy and increase the temperature. The light on the
FF6models is controlled by an automatic plunger switch whenever the door is opened. Models with glass doors and
flat door liners have a rocker switch to manually turn the light on or off. The light should be kept off when the door is
closed to save energy and help keep interior temperatures lower.
CT67—AL650 - CT66— Series with both a refrigerator and freezer section.
DEFROST SYSTEM, OPERATION AND SHELF ADJUSTMENT - Models above are refrigerator-freezer
combinations with a manual defrost freezer section and an automatic defrost fresh-food section. When ice builds to ½
inch around the freezer; empty the contents of the whole unit and defrost carefully (DO NOT USE SHARP OBJECTS)
following directions earlier in this manual. The fresh food section will defrost itself, exactly like the models in the
previous section. The freezer in this unit is rated four stars, which makes it suitable for ice-cream and short term
storage of meats and other perishable items. For best storage, be sure not to over-pack and assure the freezer door
closes fully. Shelves adjust the same as the section above. Models with black cabinets as well as CT67 models
include glass shelves. These shelves stop short an inch before the back wall, which is essential for air flow and the
automatic defrost system. Do not block with food or containers. The thermostat of these units is located on the right
hand side, top, as you face the refrigerator. Turn clockwise for colder operation, and counter clockwise to save
energy and increase the temperature. Lights on these units are all controlled by an automatic plunger type switch.
SWC6G Series Wine Cellars
These wine cellars are fully automatic defrost (see description of the defrost system under Model FF6 series). There
is a light in the upper right corner, controlled by a rocker switch. Base models of the SWC6G series have chrome
plated shelves, while some models are equipped with optional flat wire shelves or wooden shelves. For maximum
capacity, it is possible to lay wine bottles at the rear of the shelves cross-wise, behind the bottles facing forward.
Keep one inch of clearance behind the shelves and the rear wall for air circulation and the defrost system. Glass
doors should be cleaned with non-abrasive glass cleaners, and it is recommended that the interiors be cleaned with
only a baking soda –water- mix so odors are not left behind that can be absorbed by corks. These models are one
temperature zone only, although the lower shelves are normally a few degrees colder than the upper shelves.

APPLIANCE OPERATION
FS62 Series of all-freezers
These freezers are manual defrost, commercial freezers capable of operating at -25°C (-13°F). Follow the defrosting
instructions found earlier in the booklet; being careful not to use sharp objects to scrape the ice. The cooling coils
(part of the sealed refrigeration system) run through each fixed shelf. The drawers are fully removable, and you can
operate the freezer without them if desired. However, the drawers contribute to energy efficiency and are best used
whenever possible. The thermostat is located on the exterior front of the unit in the face of the tabletop. In some
cases, on models with the CSS suffix, or models modified for ADA applications, the thermostat is housed on the rear
of the unit, near the top. It is convenient to set it prior to installing (many customers will be satisfied with a warmer
set-point, which is still colder than many household freezers). Shelf positions in FS62 models are fixed in position.
Some versions of this freezer have a fast-freeze button on the front of the tabletop. This function bypasses the
thermostat and runs the freezer continuously (such as when a large volume of warm food is placed in the freezer).
We do not recommend its use, as it wastes energy and is not necessary in most situations.
INSTALLING A PANEL INTO A SUMMIT FRAME (“FR” SUFFIX)
(OPTIONAL ON MOST COUNTER-HEIGHT MODELS)
Your SUMMIT refrigerator or freezer is fully finished and does not need a front panel. However, if your have ordered
a model with our optional “FR” frame, follow the directions below to install your panel.
1. Prepare your panel. Panel size is 23 1/8” W x 28 1/8” H by 1/4” thick at the edges)
2. Carefully lay the refrigerator (it must be empty) on its back.
3. Unscrew the small piece of frame from the bottom. For a thin metal panel use a backing piece of cardboard
4. Slide panel into frame and replace the bottom frame and reattach the screws.
5. Lift refrigerator upright carefully.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call...
Your refrigerator or freezer will not operate:
• Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, or is the outlet not receiving power or switch controlled?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Check the outlet with a small appliance you know works.
• Is the refrigerator or freezer defrosting (on some models)?
Recheck to see whether the appliance is operating in a few hours. It may regularly run an automatic defrost cycle.
There is water in the defrost drain pan (on some models):
• Is the appliance 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 appliance, 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, your 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 appliance? Adding a large amount of food warms the refrigerator
or freezer. The motor normally will run longer to cool the appliance 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.
• Are the condenser coils dirty (on some models)? This prevents air transfer and makes the motor work harder. Clean
the condenser coils.
Is the door gasket sealed all the way around? 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.
The interior temperature is too warm:
• Are the air vents blocked? This prevents cold air movement. Move objects away from the air vents. See “Ensuring
Proper Air Circulation” for air vent locations.
• Is the door opened often? Be aware that the refrigerator or freezer will warm when this occurs. In order to keep the
appliance cool, try to get everything you need out of it 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? Adding a large amount of food warms the refrigerator or freezer. It can
take several hours 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 and basket out of position (on some models)? Put the shelves and basket back into their correct
positions.
