PLACING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
UNPACKING THE REFRIGERATOR
REFRIGERATOR FEATURES
 Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
 Do not remove the ground prong.
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to
move and/or install the refrigerator.
Failure to do so may cause back or
other injury.
1. Choose a location for the refrigerator
that has a strong, level floor. If such a
place is unavailable, be sure to adjust
the rotating leg supports such that the
refrigerator is always kept level.
2. Your refrigerator needs at least
¼” (6.35mm) of air space at the top
and on the sides, and 2” at the rear to
allow for proper air ventilation. Be
sure that airflow under the appliance
is not blocked. If the refrigerator is
installed next to a fixed wall, provide
at least 2½ inches (6.35 cm) of room
on the hinge side to allow for the door
to swing open.
3. Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Light
will discolor the enamel finish. In
addition, when placed near a heat
source such as stove or direct
sunlight, the refrigerator will consume
more electricity. Similarly, avoid installing in relatively cold locations: do
not install in a place where the
temperature will fall below 55°F
(13°C).
4. Avoid moisture. If placed near a sink
or water faucet, the evaporator will
frost faster because of the higher
humidity.
 Remove tape, and clean off any
Temperature Control Knob
residual glue from the refrigerator
surfaces before turning the unit on.
Apply some liquid dish detergent over
the residue with your fingers, wipe
down using warm water and dry.
The refrigerator’s temperature control knob is
preset at the factory for
your convenience. When
first installing your refrigerator, be sure that the
control is still in the midpoint setting as shown.
 In order to prevent damage to the
surface of your refrigerator, do not
use rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids,
abrasive cleaners or sharp tools
when removing the packing tape and
glue.
Adjusting the Control Knob
 Discard or recycle all packaging
The mid-setting indicated in the section
above should be ideal for regular use.
However, if you need to adjust the temperature, be sure to wait at least 24
hours between adjustments. Check the
temperature, and adjust the knob to the
next higher setting to make the refrigerator colder. To make the refrigerator less
cold, adjust the control to the next lower
setting.

ADJUSTING THE REFRIGERATOR
TILT
REFRIGERATOR SOUNDS (cont’d)
 Your refrigerator uses a high effi-
ciency compressor and fans, to keep
your food items at the desired temperature while minimizing energy usage. The fan and compressor may
therefore run for longer periods than
your old refrigerator. You may also
notice a pulsating or high-pitched
sound coming from the compressor or
fans, as they adjust to optimize performance.
If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you
would like the door to close more easily,
you can use the four refrigerator leveling
legs to adjust the tilt of the unit.
Be sure that the refrigerator is in its final
position when making adjustments to the
tilt, and that it is plugged into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to move
and/or install the refrigerator. Failure to do
so may cause back or other injury.
WARNING:




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 death,
fire or electrical shock.
 As refrigerant flows inside the cabinet,
you may hear some rattling noises.
This may also be caused by items
stored inside the cabinet.
 After each cooling cycle, you might
hear a gurgling sound caused by the
refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
 When the refrigerator is defrosting,
you might hear water running into the
drain pan.
 Each time the refrigerator starts or
stops running, you may hear some
clicking sounds.
 Turning a leveling leg to the right will
lower the refrigerator toward the position of the leg. Likewise, turning to
the left will raise the unit away from
the leg.
 Several turns of the leveling legs
may be required before the refrigerator tilt is properly adjusted.
 Turning both front legs the same
amount to the left will tilt the refrigerator to the rear. This adjustment
makes it easier for the door to close.
NOTE: It is easier to adjust the leveling
legs if someone else pushes against the
top of the refrigerator to take the weight
off of the legs.
REFRIGERATOR SOUNDS
After your new refrigerator has run for a
while, you may notice some sounds being
generated by the unit. These are normal.
Any hard surfaces surrounding the unit,
such as the floor or cabinetry, can make
the sounds seem louder. The following
list explains some of the sounds you may
hear, and their causes.
REFRIGERATOR CARE
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
NOTE: To prevent the buildup of odors,
clean the refrigerator about once a
month. Follow the below procedures for
cleaning:
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove parts such as shelves, etc.
that can be taken out of the refrigerator.
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 cleaners 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.
Vacation
5. To help with removing odors, you can
use a mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs to 1 qt [26 g to 0.95 L]
of water) to wash the interior walls.
2. Unplug the refrigerator.
6. After cleaning, replace all of the parts
that were removed from refrigerator.
7. The condenser coils, located behind
the base grille, should also be
cleaned regularly. This may be as
often as every other month. Cleaning
the condenser coils may help reduce
how much energy the refrigerator
uses.
Remove the base grille (see
“Removing / Replacing the Base
Grill” section on page 7).
When the condenser coils are dusty
or dirty, use a vacuum cleaner with
an extension attachment.
Replace the base grille.
8. After cleaning the refrigerator, plug in
or reconnect power.
Replacing the Light Bulb
NOTE: The bulb should be exchanged
with one of the same size, shape, and
wattage, as not all appliance bulbs are
suited for your refrigerator.
1. Disconnect from power.
2. Remove the screw located at the
back of the light shield with a Phillips
screwdriver. By pulling the light shield
back, remove the tabs attached to the
refrigerator, and detach the light
shield.
3. Replace the bulb.
4. To reattach the light shield, push the
tabs back in. Align the holes and insert the screw, tightening as needed.
Use up any perishable goods and freeze
other items if you choose to leave the
refrigerator on while you are away.
If the refrigerator will be turned off prior to
your departure, follow these steps.
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
3. Clean the refrigerator. See “Cleaning
Your Refrigerator” on page 4.
4. Prop the door open, so that sufficient
air can enter the refrigerator. Do so by
taping a rubber or wood block to the
top of the door. Allowing air to flow into
the refrigerator prevents the buildup of
odor and mold.
Moving Care
Follow the instructions below to prepare
your refrigerator when moving to a new
location, such as a new home.
1. Remove all products from the refrigerator.
2. Unplug the refrigerator.
3. Clean, wipe, and dry the unit completely.
4. Take out all removable parts, wrap
them, and tape them together securely so they don’t shift and rattle
during the move.
5. Tape the doors shut and tape the
power cord to the rear of the refrigerator.
WARNING:
Two or more people are required to move
and/or install the refrigerator. Failure to do so
may cause back or other injury.
Important information about moving your

added to the refrigerator? The more
that is added to the refrigerator, the
longer it will take for the product to cool
down. During this process, the motor
will run longer.
Is the door frequently opened? Warm
air entering the refrigerator causes the
motor to run longer. Try to get everything you need out of the refrigerator at
once, in order to save energy. If food is
organized so that it is easy to find, the
time the door is kept open can be minimized. Close the door as soon as you
have removed what you need.
Is the control set correctly? See
“Temperature Control Knob” section on
page 3.
To replace the base grille:
1. Open the refrigerator door.
2. Align both TABS into position, such
that the base grille snaps into place.
3. Replace and tighten the two SCREWS.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Many problems can be resolved without the need for a service call. Try the
following list as a reference to potential solutions of common problems.
PROBLEM: The refrigerator is not operating.
Is the power supply cord unplugged?
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Has a household fuse blown, or a cir-
cuit breaker been tripped? Replace the
fuse or reset the circuit.
Is the temperature control knob in the
OFF position, or incorrectly set? See
“Temperature Control Knob” section on
page 3.
PROBLEM: The motor is constantly running, or running too much
Is it hotter than usual where the refrig-
erator is? At normal temperatures, the
motor will typically run between 40%
and 80% of the time. The motor will
run even longer when the refrigerator
is in an unusually warm environment.
Page 6
Has a large amount of product been
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 Your Refrigerator” section
on pages 4 and 5, and refer to #7.
PROBLEM: The refrigerator temperature
is too warm
 Have you just added a large amount
of product to the refrigerator? This will
warm the interior of the unit until the
refrigerator is able to cool down to the
correct temperature.
Is the control set correctly? See
“Temperature Control Knob” section on
page 3.
PROBLEM: There is excessive moisture
inside the refrigerator
Is the door opened frequently? If so,
humidity from the room will enter the
refrigerator and cause moisture to build
up. This will happen even more if the
air in the room is very humid.
Is all product properly packed? Ensure
all items inside the refrigerator are securely wrapped. Wipe damp containers.
PROBLEM: The door is hard to open
Is the gasket dirty or sticky? Clean the
gasket and the surface that it touches.
Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the
gasket after cleaning.
