IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your
appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the Safety Alert Symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential
hazards that can kill or injure you and others. All safety messages
will follow the Safety Alert Symbol and either the words DANGER or
WARNING.
DANGER means that failure to heed
this safety statement may result in
severe personal injury or death.
WARNING means that failure to
heed this safety statement may
result in extensive product damage,
serious personal injury, or death.
Safety messages will alert you to what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the
chance of injury, and let you know what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
Before the refrigerator 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
refrigerator, follow basic precautions, including the following:
 Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Do not remove grounding prong, do not use an




adapter, and do not use an extension cord.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your refrigerator, be provided.
Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
Never clean refrigerator 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.
Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power
line of the unit is disconnected.
Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.

 Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect the 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 refrigerator unless it is specifically
recommended in this material. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
 Use two or more people to move and install the refrigerator. Failure to do so can



result in back or other injury.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, the front of the unit must be
completely unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above
60°F (16°C) and below 90°F (32°C). This unit must be installed in an area protected
from the elements, such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.
The refrigerator should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high
heat.
The refrigerator must be installed with all electrical connections in accordance with
state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115V 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 refrigerator.
The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amperes.
It is important for the refrigerator to be leveled in order to work properly. You may
need to make several adjustments to level it.
Never allow children to operate, play with or crawl inside the refrigerator.
Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents or abrasives on the interior. These
cleaners may damage or discolor the interior.
Do not use this apparatus for other than its intended purpose.
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days.”
 Before you throw away your old refrigerator: 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 refrigerator.

Installation Instructions
Before Using Your Refrigerator:
 Remove the exterior and interior packing.
 Check to be sure you have all of the following parts:
 1 drip tray
 1 ice cube tray
 2 wire shelves (models CM411L & CM411LBI)
 2 glass shelves (models CM421BL & CM421BLBI)
 1 crisper drawer with glass cover
 1 handle with screws and handle seal
 2 keys
 Before connecting the unit to the power source, let it stand for approximately 2
hours. 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.
Installing the Refrigerator:
 Place your unit on a floor that is strong enough to support the unit when it is fully
loaded. To level your unit, adjust the leveling legs at the bottom.
 Models CM411L and CM421BL are designed to be free-standing only, and should
not be recessed or built in. On the other hand, models CM411LBI and
CM421BLBI are specifically designed to be built in.
 Models CM411L and CM421BL: When installing, allow 5 inches of space at the
back and sides of the unit, which will allow the proper air circulation to cool the
compressor and condenser.



installed under the counter in a 21-inch opening. When installing, provide the
following clearances to ensure the best operation and proper ventilation: 1/4” on
both sides, 2” at the rear and 1/16” at the top. Be sure that airflow under the
appliance is not blocked. 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 and crisper drawer).
Locate the unit 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
affect the unit's performance.
Avoid locating the unit in moist areas.
Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed and 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 authorized service center.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2 to
3 hours before storing items in the refrigerator 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 service center.
This unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit is
equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with a standard three-prong wall
outlet to minimize the possibility of electrical shock. Do not under any circumstances
cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied. For personal
safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This unit requires a standard 115-volt AC/60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make
sure the outlet is properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
To prevent accidental injury, the cord should be secured behind the unit and not left
exposed or dangling.
The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has
a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the
best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits that could
cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. Never unplug the unit by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
Repair or replace immediately any power cord that has become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length
or at either end. When moving the unit, be careful not to damage the power cord.
Extension Cord: Do not use an extension cord. If the power cord is too short, have
a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

Operating Your Refrigerator
Setting the Temperature Control:

Your unit has only one control for regulating the temperature in the refrigerator
compartment. The temperature control is located on the upper right-hand side
of the compartment.
 When turning the unit on for the first time, set the control to its coldest setting, 6.
 The range of the temperature control is from the Off position to 6. After 24 to
48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suits your
needs. The setting 3 should be appropriate for most uses.
 To turn the appliance off, turn the temperature control to Off.
NOTES:
1. Turning the temperature control to Off stops the cooling cycle but does not
shut off the power to the unit.
2. If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off, you must wait 3 to 5
minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time
delay, the unit will not start.
Using Your Ice Cube Tray:

The recommended thermostat setting for ice making is position 6.
 Fill the ice cube tray two-thirds full of cold water or with any liquid suitable for
freezing and place the tray on the floor of the ice compartment to freeze
properly. Be sure to dry the bottom of the tray, or it may stick to the floor of the
ice compartment.
 The best way to get ice cubes out of the tray is to hold the tray under cold tap
water for a second, then gently twist the tray over an ice bucket to eject the
cubes.
The Ice Compartment:





This compartment is designed for production of ice cubes and for short-term
storage (3-4 days at most) of commercially frozen items.
The temperature in the compartment does not get cold enough to freeze items
safely for long periods of time and works best when the items are already
frozen.
By design, this compartment is not a true freezer and may not freeze some
items.
A colder setting may be used for these items, but other items in the refrigerator
may also be affected.
The ice compartment door is susceptible to breaking due to excessive ice
buildup. This part is not covered under your warranty. Be sure to defrost when
the ice reaches a thickness of 1/4 inch.
7
Interior Light Switch
The interior light is controlled by a rocker switch located behind the thermostat
(temperature control) housing. If you turn the light on, be sure to turn it off again
before closing the door.
Care and Maintenance
Defrosting Your Refrigerator:
1. Defrost the unit when the frost accumulating on the evaporator reaches a
thickness of about 1/4 inch. Turn the thermostat setting to Off.
2. Remove frozen or perishable items from the ice compartment and place them
in a cooler for protection.
3. During the defrost cycle, the ice melts into the drip tray.
4. To remove the water, empty the drip tray. Another collection container may be
placed under the ice compartment in the meantime.
5. Use a sponge or towel to pick up the melting ice off the floor of the ice
compartment. Never use a knife or other metal instrument to scrape ice/frost
from the evaporator.
6. Dry the water collection tray and place it back under the ice compartment.
7. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. After defrosting, return the thermostat
dial to the desired position.
8. To defrost quickly, a container of warm water may be placed inside the ice
compartment.
CAUTION: Do not use boiling water because it may damage the plastic parts.
In addition, using a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost may
damage the cooling system and will void the warranty. We recommend
using a plastic scraper.
Cleaning Your Refrigerator:
1. Turn the temperature control to Off, unplug the unit and remove stored items,
shelves and drip tray.
2. Wash the inside surfaces with a solution of warm water and baking soda. The
solution should contain about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of
water.
3. Wash the shelves and tray with a mild detergent solution.
4. Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse
well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the
controls, or any electrical parts.
CAUTION: Failure to unplug the unit could result in electrical shock or personal
injury.
8
Power Failure:
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your unit if you minimize the number of times the door is opened.
If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take proper
steps to protect your stored items.
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
stored items 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.
Moving Your Unit:
Remove all stored items.
Securely tape down all loose items such as shelves, drip tray and crisper
inside your unit.
3. Turn the leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.
4. Tape the door shut.
5. Be sure the unit stays secure in the upright position during transportation.
Also, protect the outside of the unit with a blanket or similar covering.

Energy-Saving Tips:





The unit should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heatproducing appliances and out of direct sunlight.
Let warm items cool to room temperature before placing in the unit.
Overloading the unit forces the compressor to run longer.
Be sure to wrap stored items properly and wipe containers dry before placing
them in the unit. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the unit.
The unit's storage area should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper or
paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the unit less
efficient.
Organize and label stored items to reduce door openings and extended
searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door
as soon as possible.
