2.7 Interior Accessories
Various glass or plastic storage shelves are included with your appliance – different models have different
combinations.
You should always slide one of the full-size glass storage shelves into the lowest set of guides, above the
fruit and vegetable container (crisper), and keep it in this position. To do this, pull the storage shelf
forward until it can be swiveled upwards or downwards and removed.
Do the same in reverse to insert the shelf at a different height.
In order to make the most of the volume of the fresh food storage compartment and
frozen-food storage compartment, the user can remove one or more shelves or drawers from
the appliance, according to your requirements.

4. OPERATION
4.1 Switching On Your Unit
 The temperature selector knob is located on the right hand wall of the refrigerator interior.
Setting “Off”:Unit Off
Setting “Min”:Less Cool Temperature
Setting “Med”:Normal Operation (adequate for most situations)
Setting “Max”:Coolest Temperature
 During high ambient temperatures, e.g., on hot summer days, it may be necessary to set the thermostat to the
Coolest setting (position “Max”). This may cause the compressor to run continuously in order to maintain a low
temperature in the cabinet. When you first install your refrigerator, set the thermostat knob at “Med”.
 Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before adding
food. The thermostat knob controls the temperature. When the thermostat control knob is set to OFF, the
refrigerator will not be running.
4.2 Noise Inside the Unit
You may notice that your unit makes some unusual noises. Most of these are perfectly normal, but you should be aware
of them.
These noises are caused by the circulation of the refrigerant liquid in the cooling system. It has become more
pronounced since the introduction of CFC-free gases. This is not a fault and will not affect the performance of your unit.
This is the compressor motor working, as it pumps the refrigerant around the system.
4.3 Tips for Keeping Food in the Unit
 Cooked meats/fish should always be stored on a shelf above raw meats/fish to avoid bacterial transfer. Keep raw
meats/fish in a container that is large enough to collect juices and cover it properly. Place the container on the lowest
shelf.
 Leave space around your food to allow air to circulate inside the unit. Ensure all parts of the unit are kept cool.
 To prevent transfer of flavors and drying out, pack or cover the food separately. Fruits and vegetables do not need to
be wrapped.
 Always let pre-cooked food cool down before you put it into the unit. This will help to maintain the internal
temperature of the unit.
 To prevent cold air escaping from the unit, try to limit the number of times you open the door. We recommend that
you only open the door when you need to put food in or take food out.

5. CLEANING
5.1 Cleaning the Interior and Exterior of the Unit





Remove all the shelves and the crisper. To remove the crisper, first remove the lower door shelf.
Wipe the inside of the unit with a weak solution of bicarbonate of soda and then rinse with warm water using a
wrung-out sponge or cloth. Wipe completely dry before replacing the shelves and crisper.
To clean the stainless steel doors, use a product specifically made to clean this material. Otherwise, use a slightly
damp, soft cloth and wipe along the grain.
Use a damp cloth to clean the exterior cabinet, then wipe with a standard furniture polish. Make sure the door is
closed to avoid the polish getting onto the magnetic door seal or inside the unit.
The grille of the condenser at the back of the unit and the adjacent components can be vacuumed using a soft brush
attachment.
5.2 Cleaning Tips
Condensation may appear on the outside of the unit. This may be due to a change in room temperature. Wipe off any
moisture residue. If the problem continues, please contact a qualified technician for assistance.

6. MAINTENANCE
6.1 Defrosting
This appliance combines a manual defrost freezer compartment and an automatic defrost refrigerator compartment. The
refrigerator compartment defrosts itself, but when frost builds to ¼ inch in the freezer compartment, you should defrost
it carefully according to this procedure:
1. Remove contents from the freezer, taking care that frozen items do not begin to thaw. Set the temperature selector
knob to “Off”.
2. Unplug the appliance. Defrosting is accelerated if the freezer door is left open.
3. Use a sponge or toweling to remove water and melting ice from the freezer floor. After the frost or ice has melted,
dry the interior of the freezer compartment thoroughly.
4. Restart the appliance by plugging it in and turning the thermostat to the desired position. Once it is cold, return
contents to the freezer compartment.
CAUTION: Do not use boiling water or an electric device such as a hair dryer to help speed up the defrosting process
because this could damage the plastic parts of the unit. In addition, never use a sharp or metallic instrument to
remove frost as it may damage the cooling coils and will void the warranty. We recommend using a plastic
scraper.
6.2 Changing the Internal Light
Lamp replacement should only be performed by a professional.
6.3 Care When Handling / Moving Your Unit
Hold the unit around its sides or base when moving it. Under no circumstances should it be lifted by holding the edges of
the top surface.
6.4 Servicing
The unit should be serviced by an authorized engineer and only genuine spare parts should be used. Under no
circumstances should you attempt to repair the unit yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunction. Contact a qualified technician.
6.5 Switching Off for Long Periods of Time
When the unit will not be in use for a long period of time, disconnect it from the power supply, empty all food and clean
the appliance, leaving the doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.

Requesting Assistance or Service:
If the problem is not due to one of the items listed above, contact the dealer or authorized service company. You can also
call our SUMMIT® Customer Service line at 1-800-932-4267 weekdays from 8:30 AM to 5:00PM (ET).
7.1 Normal phenomena:
1. The refrigerator enclosure may emit heat during operation, especially in summer. This is caused by radiation
from the condenser, and is a normal phenomenon.
2. Condensation may be detected on the exterior surface and door seals of the refrigerator when the ambient
humidity is greater than usual. This is normal, and the condensation can be wiped away with a dry towel.
3. A buzzing sound will be generated by the running compressor, especially when starting up or shutting down.
4. A gentle trickling sound can be caused by coolant flowing through the pipes.
13
8. TIPS FOR ENERGY SAVING
 Try not to open the doors too often, especially when the weather is damp and hot. Once you open a door, close it as
soon as possible.
 Every now and then check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate air circulation behind the appliance).
 During normal temperature conditions, the thermostat should be placed at the middle setting.
 Before loading the appliance with packages of fresh food, make sure they are cooled to ambient temperature.
 Layers of ice and frost increase energy consumption, so defrost the freezer as soon as the layer is ¼-inch thick.
 If there is an outer condenser, the rear wall should be always kept free of dust or other impurities.
 The appliance should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances or heating
ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
 Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the appliance. Overloading the appliance forces the
compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality or spoil.
 Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the appliance. This cuts down on
frost build-up inside the appliance.
 Shelves and storage bins should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners interfere with
cold air circulation, making the appliance 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.
9. DISPOSAL
Old units still have some residual value. An environmentally friendly method of disposal will ensure that valuable raw
materials can be recovered and used again. Insulation materials and the refrigerant used in your unit require special
