INSTALLATION
Before Using Your Refrigerator-Freezer
•
Remove the exterior and interior packing.
•
Check to be sure refrigerator and freezer shelves are installed and that
•
•
the strips of tape holding them in place have been removed.
Before connecting the unit to the power source, let it stand upright for
at least ½ hour. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the
cooling system from handling during transportation.
Clean the interior surfaces with lukewarm water using a soft cloth. Any
plastic odor that you notice when you first open the doors will dissipate
once the appliance is operating.
Installation of Your Appliance
•
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 it when
it is fully loaded. Be sure the appliance is level. (Level your refrigeratorfreezer by adjusting the legs at the front.)
•
Allow at least 4” of clearance at the sides and the top, and 5 inches
between the back of the unit and the wall behind, which allows the
proper air circulation to cool the compressor. This improves cooling
efficiency and saves energy.
•
Do not cover the top of the unit with a mat or cloth. This will help
maintain the operating efficiency of the appliance.
•
Locate the refrigerator 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 refrigerator
to perform improperly.
•
Avoid locating the refrigerator in moist areas.
•
This refrigerator-freezer is equipped with a three-prong plug and is
grounded to eliminate electrical hazards. In order to make it effective,
the unit must be plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
•
Do not use an extension cord.

Test Run
Before using the refrigerator-freezer, clean it and make a test run to see if the
following steps can be completed. If not, check the electrical supply. If the
cause of trouble cannot be located, contact your Summit dealer.
1. Set the Temperature Control Knob to the OFF position and then plug the AC
cord into an electrical outlet of 115 volts, 60 Hz. The motor should not run.
2. Set the Temperature Control Knob at the MAX position and let the unit
operate for 20 minutes. The freezer compartment should get slightly frosted
and the motor should run smoothly with a soft hum.
3. Then rotate the Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise toward the
MIN position. Before the pointer of the knob reaches the MIN position, the
motor should turn off.
ATTENTION
This appliance is equipped with a special Thermostat Control Device. If the unit is turned off or
unplugged, YOU MUST ALLOW THREE (3)
MINUTES BEFORE RESTARTING OR REPLUGGING THE UNIT.
The unit will not start if you attempt to restart it in
less than three minutes.
Reversing the Door Swing
The doors of the refrigerator-freezer can be hinged on either side so that the
door swing can be suited to the location of the installation.
Tools Required:
• standard screwdriver
• large Phillips head screwdriver
• socket wrench (3/8")
In order to reverse the position of the door hinges, refer to the disassembly
diagram on the following page and follow this procedure.
1. Remove the hinge cap by twisting it off.
2. Remove the upper hexagonal-head screws. The top hinge and the freezer
door can now be removed.
5
3. Remove the middle hexagonal screws. The middle hinge and the
refrigerator door can now be removed.
4. Remove the cover for the middle hinge holes and re-attach it symmetrically
to the holes on the other side.
5. Tilt the refrigerator back or lay it on its back for steps 6, 7 and 8. Use a pad
or blanket to protect the floor and to avoid scratching the painted finish.
6
6. Remove the leveling legs by turning them counterclockwise. Remove the
lower hexagonal-head screws, two on the hinge side and one near the front
corner of the other side.
7. Attach the bottom hinge symmetrically to the other side of the cabinet with
the screws removed in Step 6. (Do not tighten screws completely.)
8. Attach the left side leg and the leg spacer to the other side hole which was
positioned symmetrically.
9. Remove the upper hinge plastic pins and insert them in the holes from
which the screws were removed in Step 2.
10. Take off the hinge collar caps from both the freezer and refrigerator doors
using a screwdriver and insert them in the hinge collar on the opposite side.
11. Attach the shaft to the hinge bottom. Attach the refrigerator door to the
shaft.
12. Rotate the middle hinge 180°. Attach it to the refrigerator door and secure it
with screws. (Do not tighten screws completely.)
13. Attach the upper hinge to the freezer door. Attach the freezer door to the
middle hinge and use the screws to attach the upper hinge. (Do not tighten
screws completely.)
14. The direction in which the doors open has now been changed; however, the
following points should be checked:
a. Make sure the doors are on straight.
b. Make sure there is no space between the door gaskets and the
refrigerator and freezer units themselves when the doors are closed.
c. Make sure that the gasket on the hinge side is not caught between the
door and the unit when the door is opened or closed. (If the door is
forced closed when the gasket is caught, the gasket might be damaged.)
d. When checking the above points, if it is discovered that the doors are not
installed properly (this is apt to happen on the first try), loosen the screws
holding the upper hinge, straighten the door and tighten the screws
slowly with the socket wrench. After making sure that the doors are
installed correctly, tighten all the screws holding the hinge.
If they are not tightened, the doors may slip out of position or there may
be an opening between the doors and the unit.
15. Stand the unit back in the upright position.

OPERATION
Temperature Control
Refrigerator temperature can be regulated by adjusting the Temperature
Control Knob. The closer to the MAX position the control knob is set by rotating
it clockwise, the lower the refrigerator temperature becomes.
Refrigerator temperature will vary depending on the quantity of food stored and
on the frequency with which the door is opened. Set the Temperature Control
Knob at the MAX position only when ice cubes are needed in a hurry.
This refrigerator may turn on and off more frequently than regular size
refrigerators. This is normal because of its compactness.
Usually the Temperature Control Knob
should be set at the middle position (3).
Defrosting
Due to its frost-free operation, this refrigerator-freezer does not require manual
defrosting.
Ice Cube Tray
The ice cube tray is flexible. Twist the tray to
remove ice cubes.
Do not use boiling water or a metal instrument
such as a knife or screwdriver to remove the ice
cube tray, because this may damage plastic parts
or the evaporator.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Turn off the refrigerator and remove foods, shelves, trays, etc. Wash the interior
liner with a solution of warm water and two tablespoonfuls of baking soda per
quart. Then rinse and wipe. Do not use soaps, detergents, scouring powder,
spray cleaners or the like on the liner, as these may cause odors in the
refrigerator compartment.
Wash ice cube tray, drip trays and shelves in a mild detergent solution and dry
with a soft cloth.
8
Wipe the exterior surface with a soft cloth dampened with soapy water and then
dry with a soft cloth. A spray appliance cleaner may be used for the exterior
only.
Use only lukewarm soapy water to clean the door gaskets.
Never use acids, chemical thinner, gasoline, benzene or the like for cleaning
any part of the refrigerator. Boiling water and benzene may deform or damage
plastic parts.
Vacation Time
•
Short vacations: Leave the unit 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 doors open
slightly, blocking them open if necessary.
Moving Your Refrigerator

4.
Remove all the food.
Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.
Tape the door shut.
Be sure the refrigerator stays secure in the upright position during
transportation. Also protect the outside of the refrigerator with a blanket
or similar item.
Energy-Saving Tips
•
•
•
•
•
•
The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away
from heat-producing appliances and out of direct sunlight.
Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the
refrigerator or freezer compartment. Overloading the refrigerator forces
the compressor to run longer.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing
them in the unit. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the
refrigerator/freezer.
To allow proper air circulation, keep a space between stored foodstuffs.
To inhibit drying and to cut down on odors, be sure food is packed well.
Refrigerator shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper,
or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the
refrigerator 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.
