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 seriously injured or even killed if you don’t follow instructions.
Safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, how to reduce the
chance of injury, and 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 appliance, 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.
NOTE: Drawer refrigerators are provided with anti-tip brackets. Always install
prior to use.
Proper disposal of an 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.
3
Installation Instructions
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 cleaning instructions in Appliance Care.
6. Some upright models have leveling legs. 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.
Key Eject lock (some models):
To lock or unlock the appliance, you must hold the key in the lock while turning.
The lock is spring-loaded, so the key cannot be left in the lock.
If the key is lost, contact your dealer or SUMMIT APPLIANCE for a replacement.
Always give the model and serial number of your appliance when requesting a
replacement key. Keys for most models can be ordered online at
www.summitappliance.com/support
4
Location Requirements
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away
from appliances. Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion or
death.
Location:
IMPORTANT: Do not install the appliance near an oven, radiator, or other heat
source, nor in a location where the temperature will fall below 40°F (5°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 4” (10 cm) of airspace at the top
and on both sides of the appliance and also 4” between the back of the appliance
and the wall. If the appliance is going to be placed next to a wall, leave extra
space on the hinge side so the door can open wider than its width.
NOTE: Allow 4” (10 cm) clearance at the top and sides and a ¼” (0.64 cm)
clearance between appliances. IF YOUR MODEL HAS THE LETTERS “BI”
IN THE SUFFIX, IT IS DESIGNED FOR BUILT-IN USE AND REQUIRES
ONLY MINIMAL CLEARANCES EXCEPT AT THE BACK WHERE AT
LEAST 2” OF CLEARANCE SHOULD BE ALLOWED. ALL FF590,
SCR610BL, AND ACF48W MODELS ARE ALSO BUILT-IN CAPABLE.
Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.

Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire, electrical shock or
death.
Recommended grounding method:
A 115 Volt (AC only) 60 Hz grounded electrical supply with a 15- or 20- amp fuse
or circuit breaker 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. Do not use an extension cord.
5
Leveling your appliance (some upright models):
Locate the two front leveling legs that may be taped among the packing materials. (In
many models these legs are already mounted into the underside of the appliance.)
1. 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).
2. Adjust the front legs just enough to lift the cabinet up off the floor.
Note: If your model is equipped with front rollers, the front legs should be lowered
enough to lift the rollers off the floor to ensure the appliance does not roll
forward when the door is opened.
3. Place a leveling tool on top of the appliance, first side to side, then front to back.
Turn leg counter-clockwise to raise a corner. Turn leg clockwise to lower a corner.
4. Repeat Step 3 until appliance is level.
5. After appliance is fully loaded, recheck with level as in Step 3.
6. If your appliance is equipped with casters, the two front casters have brakes to
prevent rolling. Keep brakes locked, and unlock for moving only.
When using the appliance:
In order to ensure proper temperature, you need to permit proper airflow in the
appliance. Do not block off any air vents. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be
hindered, 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 cooled. It may take 6 to 8 hours (or longer), depending on room
temperature and the number of times the appliance door is opened. After the
appliance has cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to keep the
appliance at the proper temperature.
For optimum temperature performance, it is recommended that this unit be at
least 30% full during use. If you are only using this unit to store small loads, we
recommend adding some water bottles or freezer packs to ensure temperature
stability.
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 just inside the side walls,
making these walls warm to the touch.)
ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
 The more airflow provided around an appliance, the less energy it will use.
 If your appliance requires manual defrosting, keep ice build-up to less than 1/2".
 Keep doors open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
6
Appliance Care
Defrosting:
Refrigerator models listed in this manual defrost automatically. However, freezer
models require manual defrosting. Before defrosting the unit, remove the contents of
the freezer, then set the thermostat to OFF (the compressor will stop working). Leave
the door open until ice and frost are completely melted. To speed up defrosting, you
can place a container of warm water (about 125°F) into the cabinet. Soak up the melt
water with clean toweling or a sponge and be sure the interior is dry before turning the
thermostat back to its normal setting.
• NOTE: It is not advisable to heat the interior of the freezer directly with hot water or
a hair dryer while defrosting since this can deform the cabinet interior.
NEVER USE A METAL OBJECT TO REMOVE ICE FROM THE
REAR WALL. IF NEEDED, USE A PLASTIC ICE SCRAPER.
Cleaning the appliance:
NOTE: To prevent the buildup of odors, clean the appliance about once a month.
Follow the procedure below for cleaning:
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove any parts that can be taken out of the cabinet, such as drawers.
3. Using a clean sponge or soft cloth, hand wash, rinse and dry removable parts and
interior surfaces thoroughly. Use a mild detergent in warm water. DO NOT use
abrasive or harsh cleansers such as window sprays, scouring cleansers,
flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers
containing petroleum products. DO NOT use harsh cleaning tools such as paper
towels or scouring pads, as these can scratch or damage the surfaces of the
refrigerator.
4. For stainless steel and painted metal exterior surfaces, use a clean sponge or soft
cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. DO NOT use abrasive or harsh
cleaners, or cleaners containing chlorine, as these can scratch or damage the
material. Using a soft cloth, dry thoroughly.
5. To help with removing odors, you can use a mixture of warm water and baking
soda (2 tbs to 1 qt of water) to wash the interior walls.
6. After cleaning, replace all of the parts that were removed from the appliance.
7. The condenser coils, located on the back or behind the base grille, should also be
cleaned regularly. This may be as often as every other month. Cleaning the
condenser coils can help reduce how much energy the appliance uses. When the
condenser coils are dusty or dirty, use a vacuum cleaner with an extension
attachment.
8. After cleaning the appliance, plug in or reconnect power.
NOTE: For CSS Models (completely stainless steel), only use cleaners
especially made for stainless steel.
7
Changing the light bulb (some models only):
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your appliance. Be sure to replace the bulb
with one of the same size, shape, base size and wattage. You can purchase
bulbs from www.summitappliance.com/support
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect power.
2. Remove the light shield. Most models do not require tools.
3. Replace the light bulb with an appliance bulb of the same wattage.
Replacement LED bulbs are available from our parts department.
4. Replace the light shield.
5. Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
Loss of power:
In the event of power loss, unplug the appliance. Once power is restored, allow
30 minutes for the refrigeration system to equalize. During this time, keep the
door closed as much as possible.
Remember: A full appliance stays cold longer than a partially filled one.
Moving the appliance:
1. Remove stored items and tape shelves, drawers and trays in place.
2. Unplug the appliance.
3. Clean it thoroughly.
4. Tape the appliance shut and tape the electrical cord to the cabinet.
When you get the appliance to its new location, refer to the Installation
Instructions and Temperature Selection sections for information on installation
and setting the controls.
8
Temperature Selection and Monitoring
YOUR APPLIANCE MAY HAVE A MECHANICAL (DIAL) OR DIGITAL THERMOSTAT.
DIAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE BELOW. DIGITAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE ON PAGE 10.
Manual (dial) thermostat (on some models):
Your appliance may be controlled with a thermostat knob located inside or in the rear
of the unit, towards the right-hand corner. Turn the knob clockwise from the STOP (0)
position toward the higher numbers for colder temperatures.
Setting the Temperature:




Higher settings on the knob (higher numbers) mean lower temperatures
(colder) in all compartments of the appliance. The temperature inside a
refrigerator may even drop below 32°F. Use higher thermostat settings only
when required or recommended. When the ambient temperature is normal,
we recommend a medium setting.
Changes of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the
appliance, so keep this in mind when choosing the setting of the thermostat
dial.
At STOP (0) position, the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is
switched off), but the power supply is not interrupted.
The temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartments 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.
For optimum temperature performance, it is recommended that your unit be
at least 30% full during use. If you are only using this unit to store small
loads, we recommend adding some water bottles or freezer packs to ensure
temperature stability.

Temperature Selection & Monitoring, cont’d
Note:
Details may vary
from image.
Digital Thermostat (standard on all-refrigerators, ACF48W
models, and VT65MLADA models):
If you find it necessary to change the temperature setting for your digital thermostat,
please refer to the following instructions.
How to Adjust the Temperature:
To see the SET POINT:
The default display for your digital thermostat is the internal cabinet temperature. To
view the unit’s set point, push and immediately release the SET key. The display will
flash, showing the set point value. If no other actions are taken in 6 seconds, the
display will revert to the internal air temperature.
To change the SET POINT:
While the set point value is blinking, press the UP or DOWN arrow to change the set
point to your desired temperature. Press the SET button again to exit the adjustment.
The display will revert to the internal air temperature.
PLEASE NOTE: the temperature displayed on the digital thermostat is the internal air
temperature. Your alarm/thermometer (installed on the left in the control panel)
provides a temperature readout based on the buffered probe in order to better
simulate the temperature of what is actually stored inside the unit (as opposed to the
air temperature itself). As a result, these readings may not always display the same
temperature reading.
NOTE: The minimum and maximum range of your thermostat is preset and
locked so it cannot easily be accidentally moved outside of the
recommended temperature ranges.
10
Traceable thermometer (PLUS2 models):
This digital thermometer simultaneously displays
maximum, minimum and current temperatures.
The Max/Min feature monitors and stores the
highest and lowest readings since the battery
was inserted or since the RESET button was last
pressed.
The temperature sensor, or probe, is enclosed in
a glycol-filled bottle that is inserted into the
location to be monitored, such as inside a
refrigerator or freezer. The thermometer itself
can be attached to the door of the unit with the
magnet on the back, or it can be placed on a
convenient table or shelf.
Power to the Traceable Thermometer is supplied with one AAA lithium battery. When
it is inserted correctly, all segments of the LCD display are temporarily activated.
When the battery needs to be replaced, a battery symbol will flash on the display.
The temperature display can be switched between Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F)
with a push of the °C/°F button. The display will alternate between refrigerator (probe)
temperature and room temperature when you press the ROOM/FRIDGE button. Press
RESET to clear the Max/Min temperature record.
See instruction pamphlet for more information about the Traceable
Thermometer.
Probe Hole/Access Port (PRO Series):
PRO series refrigerators and freezers include a 3/8” probe hole to allow users to
install their own monitoring equipment. The probe hole is usually located in the upper
part of the rear cabinet. If you are having difficulty locating the hole, refer to the
product’s brochure on our website.
If installing your own thermometer, alarm, or data logger, we recommend using a
device with a buffered temperature probe and placing the probe towards the center of
the unit. This will help provide a temperature reading closest to the contents being
stored inside your refrigerator or freezer. If your unit includes a fixed shelf with a
probe holder (see details on page 12), we recommend placing the probe inside the
extra slot in this shelf.
11
Traceable Thermometer/Alarm (MED Models):
Alarm style varies by product
Every MED unit is equipped with a NIST-calibrated Traceable Thermometer/Alarm
that simultaneously displays minimum, maximum, and current interior temperatures
and provides a visual and audible signal when the temperature inside the unit falls
outside the set temperature range.
NOTE ABOUT CALIBRATION: All MED units ship with a two-year certificate of
calibration in the alarm/thermometer box that comes inside your unit. Keep this
certificate stored safely for your records. Accucold offers re-calibration services
through their ISO 17025:2005 certified calibration laboratory. It is recommended to
have your probe re-calibrated every two years (or one year, depending on your state’s
health department guidelines). For more information on how to have your device recalibrated, contact us at calibration@summitappliance.com.
The temperature sensor, or probe, is enclosed in a glycol-filled bottle that is stored
inside your unit in a special shelving compartment.
In some units, the center shelf is fixed in place and
cannot be removed (see image). This is because the
glycol-filled bottle that contains the temperature
sensors for your alarm and thermometer is best
stored in this location. The center of your refrigerator
or freezer will provide the most accurate
temperature readings. For proper temperature
monitoring, keep the bottle in place and do not
remove this shelf.
Thermometer/alarm instructions continue on page 13man

cover. The unit will beep and all segments of the LCD will be activated.
Programming the Alarms:
The thermometer displays the internal temperature of the unit being monitored, as
well as the maximum and minimum temperatures reached. The maximum and
minimum readings reflect the highest and lowest temperatures since the battery was
inserted or since the MODE/RESET key was last pressed. If the temperature rises
above or falls below the set temperature range, the alarm will sound. By default, the
high alarm temperature setting is 8°C (46.4°F) and the low alarm temperature setting
is 2°C (35.6°F). To reset these limits, follow these instructions:
High Alarm Temperature Setting: Press the HIGH/LOW key ONCE, then press
MODE/RESET to enter the High Alarm temperature setting mode. Use the Up and
Down arrows to adjust the temperature accordingly. Press MODE/RESET once
again to confirm the setting.
Low Alarm Temperature Setting: Press the HIGH/LOW key TWICE, then press
MODE/RESET to enter the Low Alarm temperature setting mode. Use the Up and
Down arrows to adjust the temperature accordingly. Press MODE/RESET ONCE to
confirm the setting.
By default, the low and high alarms should be audible. To turn alarms on/off:
Audible High Alarm Setting: To make sure the high alarm is audible, press HIGH/LOW
key ONCE (to activate HI-SET on the screen). Then press the ALERT ON/OFF key
ONCE to activate the HIGH-ALARM beeping sound. Press again to deactivate.
Audible Low Alarm Setting: To make sure that the low temperature alarm is audible,
press the HIGH/LOW key TWICE to activate LOW-SET on the screen. Then press
the ALERT ON/OFF key ONCE to activate the LO-ALARM beeping sound. Press
again to deactivate.
NOTE: Set high and low alarm temperature limits above and below the refrigerator/
freezer operating temperature to prevent false alarms.
NOTE: For an activated high alarm and low alarm buzzer, the display should
indicate HI-ALARM and LO-ALARM (see illustration on previous page).
More details about the features and usage of the Traceable Thermometer/Alarm
can be found in the User Manual accompanying the unit.

Operation of Specific Models
FF6L, FF7L, FF28LWH, FF511L, FF521BL, FF590SSHH, FFAR24L, FFAR10, FFAR12W,
FFAR121SS, SCR600L PLUS2, PRO, & MED Series; SP6DS2D, SP6DS, SP6DSSTB
PLUS2 Series only; SCR610BL, SCR1156 MED Series only
These models are all-refrigerators (no freezer compartment) with automatic defrost. All
have cold plates on the rear wall, and the coldest spots in the refrigerator will be in the rear
and toward the bottom. All have interior fans to promote even cooling. In the rear bottom
above the step, there is a drain line to allow defrost water to exit the refrigerator. Keep this
drain line clear, or icing inside the refrigerator will occur. FF7, FF511L, FFAR10, and SCR
series models have lights that are not door-activated, and are controlled either by a rocker
switch on the top right or a light switch inside. The light inside these units will stay on until
switched off manually. While LED lighting will not generate heat, it is not recommended to
leave the light on for long periods of time.
ACF48WPLUS2 Series
These frost-free all-freezers can be built-in or free-standing. They do not require defrosting
and have a digital thermostat and a lock. At the top of the unit is a cooling system that uses
a fan to provide cold air. For best operation, do not block the air flow with contents.
FS24L, FS30L, FS603, FS407L, VT65ML PLUS2, PRO, & MED Series
These are manual defrost all-freezers. No internal fans are present, and ice will build up
along the cooling coils. Periodically defrost the ice (recommended when the ice level
reaches a thickness of 1/4 to 1/2 inch). NEVER USE A METAL INSTRUMENT as you can
damage the cooling coils, which will void your warranty and often cannot be repaired. To
defrost, disconnect from the power supply, empty the contents, provide a tray in the bottom
to collect water, and use a hairdryer or other source of warm air to melt the ice (or leave the
door open and the power off for 24 to 48 hours).
CP351 & CT66L PLUS2 Series
These models are cycle defrost refrigerator-freezers. The freezers are designed to operate
at 0°F (-18°C), suitable for medical or laboratory uses. These models have dual
evaporators to maintain separate temperatures in the freezer and refrigerator. Defrost the
freezer carefully, as directed above for manual defrost. The refrigerator section operates in
the normal range (35 to 45°F, or 2 to 7°C) and defrosts automatically.
CM411L, S19LWH, CP133 PLUS2 Series
These models are manual defrost refrigerator-freezers. The freezers in these models are
designed to operate at 25°F (-4°C) to keep ice frozen, and not for medication or products
needing colder temperatures. Defrost carefully, following directions above. The refrigerator
section will operate in the normal range (35 to 45°F, or 2 to 7°C) and is suitable for most
refrigerated products.
NOTE: FF590SSHH, ACF48W, SCR610BL, drawer units, and models with BI in the model
number are designed for built-in installation and need very little clearance on the sides
and above the units. All other models require at least 4 inches of airflow on the sides
and above the units. All models, including built-in units, operate best when 2 inches is
provided between the rear wall and the back of the unit.
15
Troubleshooting
Try these solutions first to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
PROBLEM: The appliance is not operating.



Is the power supply cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
Has a fuse blown or a circuit breaker been tripped? Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit.
Is the thermostat incorrectly set? See How to Adjust the Temperature on
page 10.
PROBLEM: The motor is constantly running, or running too much
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Is it hotter than usual where the appliance is located? At normal temperatures,
the motor will typically run between 40% and 80% of the time. The motor will
run even longer when the unit is in an unusually warm environment.
Has a large number of items been added to the appliance? The more that is
added, the longer it will take for the unit to cool down. During this process, the
motor will run longer.
Is the door frequently opened? Warm air entering the appliance causes the
motor to run longer. Keep the door closed as much as possible.
Is thermostat set correctly? See How to Adjust the Temperature on page 10.
Is the door completely closed? Push the door firmly shut.
Are the condenser coils dirty? This prevents proper air transfer, and causes the
motor to work harder. Clean the condenser coils. See Cleaning the Appliance
on page 7, and refer to #7.
Does the unit have proper clearance? Models with “BI” in their name require 2”
of rear clearance and minimal clearance on the sides and top. All other units
require at least 4” of clearance on all sides for proper operation.
PROBLEM: The temperature in the cabinet is too warm
•

Have you just added a large number of items to the appliance? This will warm
the interior of the unit until it is able to cool down to the correct temperature.
Is thermostat set correctly? See How to Adjust the Temperature on page 10.
PROBLEM: There is excessive moisture inside the appliance
•
Is the door opened frequently? If so, humidity from the room will enter the
appliance and cause moisture to build up. This will happen even more if the air
in the room is very humid.
PROBLEM: The door is hard to open
•
Is the door gasket dirty or sticky? Clean the gasket and the surfaces that it
touches. Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the gasket after cleaning.

Best Practices
Maintenance of the Refrigerator or Freezer
 Report breakdowns immediately and arrange for alternative
monitored storage for vaccines while the appliance is being
repaired.
 Regularly check the door seals to ensure a good seal is
maintained. Replace the seals if they are damaged or cold air is
leaking from the appliance.
 Defrost the appliance regularly, if required, to prevent build-up of
ice which will result in unstable temperatures. Regular defrosting
also aids in efficient functioning of your appliance.
 If there are exposed coils on the back of the appliance, keep
them clean and dust-free to improve operating efficiency.
Checking the Door Seal
To check that the vaccine storage unit door is sealing properly:
1. Place a thin paper strip against the cabinet front.
2. Close the door.
3. Pull the paper strip. If it moves easily or falls away by itself,
the door and the rubber-like seal need to be adjusted.
4. Check all the way around the door. Pay particular attention to
the corners.
5. Based on this assessment, if a problem with the door seal or
hinges is suspected, contact a trained repair technician.
Checking If the Thermometer Works
A slight variation in temperature is often seen from one thermometer
reading to another, even when the vaccine storage unit thermostat is set
at a particular temperature. This is normal. If the thermometer reading
does not fluctuate at all over several readings, temporarily remove the
thermometer from the storage unit and place it outside the unit at room
temperature. Check whether the temperature reading rises. If no change
in the temperature reading occurs, the thermometer is faulty and needs
to be replaced.
