IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
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
appliance, 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 appliance 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 appliance 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 appliance, 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 appliance should not be located next to ovens, radiators or other sources of high heat.
• The appliance 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 appliance.
• 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.
1
Risk of child entrapment!
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators and freezers are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few
days.”
• Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer: Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves or drawers in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
• Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY YOUNG CHILDREN OR INFIRM
PERSONS UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN ADEQUATELY SUPERVISED BY A
RESPONSIBLE PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY CAN USE THE APPLIANCE SAFELY.
YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED TO ENSURE THAT THEY DO NOT PLAY
WITH THE APPLIANCE.

Installation Instructions
Before Using Your Appliance:
• Remove the exterior and interior packing.
• Before connecting the unit to a 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.
• Remove the shelves and clean them and the interior surfaces of the unit with
lukewarm water using a soft cloth.
Installing the Refrigerator:
• Place the unit on a floor that is strong enough to support it when the appliance is
fully loaded. To level the unit, adjust the two leveling legs at the front.
• Your appliance is designed to be free-standing only and not recessed or built into
an enclosure. When installing, allow at least 2” (51mm) of space at the sides, top
and rear of the unit to allow for proper air circulation to cool the compressor and
condenser.Take care that the air vents at the front of the appliance are never
covered or blocked in any way.
• This appliance is supplied with spacers which have to be mounted onto the
condenser tube at the back to make sure there is sufficient clearance between the
appliance and the wall.
• Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (oven, 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. Too much moisture in the air will cause frost
to form quickly on the evaporator, requiring more frequent defrosting of the
interior.
• Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed and grounded wall outlet. Any
questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a
certified electrician or authorized service center.
5
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 the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
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
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 with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have
a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

Reversing the Door Swing:
If you find the direction of opening the door of the appliance inconvenient, you can
change it. Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared at the factory.
This appliance can be opened from either the right side or the left. By default, the
door hinge is on the right side. If you prefer it on the left, please follow these
instructions:
1. Take off upper hinge cover from the door and remove the screws that hold top
hinge.
2. Lift the hinge straight up to free the hinge pin from the socket in the top of the
door.
3. Lift the door up and away to free its bottom socket from the hinge pin.
4. Remove the screws to the bottom hinge.
5. Remove the decorative caps from the opposite side and plug the holes from the
original side with the decorative caps.
6. Move the bottom hinge to the opposite side and tighten the screws. Use any lock
washers or nuts if they were used in the original installation.
7. Replace door onto the hinge pin on the bottom hinge. Place top hinge pin into
door. Insert screws into the top hinge and tighten.
Door Handle Installation:
The door has two screw holes on each side, allowing you to install a handle (included).
To do so, align the handle with the screw holes on the side you prefer. Fix the handle
in place with the included screws, then cover the screw heads with the handle seal
(included).

Operating Your Refrigerator
Temperature Control:
• Your appliance’s evaporator system is out of sight behind the interior rear wall.
• The interior temperature is controlled with a thermostat knob
•
•
•
•
•
located inside the unit, towards the upper right-hand corner.
Turn the knob clockwise from the STOP (0) position toward
the higher numbers for colder temperatures. Higher settings
on the knob (higher numbers) mean lower temperatures
(colder) in the refrigerator.
On the coldest settings, temperatures in some spots inside
the cabinet may 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 in the ambient temperature affect the temperature inside the refrigerator
so choose an appropriate setting of the thermostat knob, depending on ambient
conditions.
In the STOP (0) position, the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is
switched off), yet the power supply is not interrupted (the light still works).
The temperature inside the refrigerator also depends on how often you open the
door.
In all small refrigerators without interior fans, temperatures are coldest near the
bottom, and occasionally near the rear. Place contents accordingly. It is best not
to operate these units mostly empty. If temperatures are erratic, try putting some
water bottles inside to create a load for the compressor.
NOTES:
1. The glass shelves are adjustable. These shelves stop short an inch before the
back wall, which is essential for air flow and the proper operation of the automatic
defrost system. Do not block these gaps.
2. Interior lighting is controlled by a switch that is activated by the opening and
closing of the refrigerator door.
3. If the refrigerator is unplugged, has lost power or is turned off, you must wait 3 to
5 minutes before restarting it. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the
unit will not start.
Defrosting Your Appliance:
This appliance operates with an automatic defrost system, so the refrigerator defrosts
itself. While the compressor is operating, ice will build up along the cold rear wall (the
evaporator plate is behind the wall). During the compressor’s off-cycle, ice will melt,
drip down, collect in the trough at the bottom and drain through a small hole into a
tray above the compressor; where the compressor’s heat will evaporate the water. If
you notice excessive ice build-up on the rear wall, try adjusting the thermostat to a
slightly warmer setting. Be sure that the door gasket is sealing well and that there is
no obstruction of the drain hole at the bottom rear of the interior cabinet.

including shelves and crisper.
Wash the inside surfaces with a solution of lukewarm water and vinegar. Wipe
dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Wash the shelves and crisper with a mild detergent solution, then rinse and dry
thoroughly.
Wash the outside cabinet with a solution of warm water and mild liquid detergent.
Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the
temperature control or any electrical parts.
From time to time, wipe the condenser on the back wall with a soft
non-metallic brush or vacuum cleaner.
After you have cleaned the appliance, reconnect it to the power
supply, reset the thermostat and return all contents to their place.
CAUTION: Failure to unplug the unit before cleaning or maintenance
could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
Power Failure:
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the
temperature of your appliance 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
the proper steps to protect your chilled items.
Vacation Time:
During long absences, remove all contents.Unplug the appliance, clean it and leave the
door open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold or odors.

Energy-Saving Tips:
• The unit should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-
producing appliances or heating ducts and out of direct sunlight.
• Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is damp and hot.
Once you open the door, close it as soon as possible.
• Occasionally check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate air
circulation behind the appliance).
• Set the thermostat from higher to lower settings as soon as possible (depending
on how loaded the appliance is, ambient temperature, etc.).
• Before loading items into the unit, be sure they have cooled to ambient
temperature.

Troubleshooting
When using this appliance, you may come across some problems that in many cases
result from improper handling and can easily be eliminated.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
The appliance fails to operate after being connected to the power source.
• Check whether the power supply is active and that the thermostat is not set to
the STOP (0) position.
The compressor is running continuously.
• The door was opened frequently or it was left open too long.
• The door is not properly closed (the door may sag, the gasket may be dirty or
damaged).
• The power supply has been interrupted for a long period of time.
• The appliance may have been overloaded with items above room temperature.
• There may be inadequate ventilation of the compressor and condenser.
(Assure there is adequate air circulation behind the appliance and wipe the
dust from the condenser.)
Noise
• Cooling in refrigeration appliances is enabled by the refrigerating system with a
compressor, which produces noise. How noisy the appliance is depends on
where it is placed, how it is used and how old the appliance is.
• During the operation of the compressor, the noise of liquid is heard and when
the compressor is not operating, the refrigerant flow is heard. This is a normal
condition and has no influence whatsoever on the lifetime of the appliance.
• After starting the appliance, the operation of the compressor and the refrigerant
flow may be louder. This does not mean that something is wrong. Gradually
the noise is reduced.
• Sometimes a louder noise is heard, which is unusual for the appliance. This
noise is often a consequence of improper placement of the unit. (The unit
should be placed and leveled firmly on a solid base and it should not touch the
wall or cabinets standing next to it.)
