INSTALLATION
To use the refrigerator-freezer with the most efficiency and safety, select a suitable
place to install it according to the following guidelines:
1. This appliance is designed for free-standing installation only and should not be
recessed or built in.
2. The appliance should be installed on a sturdy, level floor or counter. If the floor is
not quite level, adjust the front feet of the unit.
3. Allow at least 4 inches of clearance at each side of the refrigerator, at the top and
between the back and the wall behind.
4. Avoid any direct sunlight, heat or moisture.
5. This appliance is equipped with a three-prong plug and is grounded to minimize
electrical hazards. To make it effective, the refrigerator-freezer must be plugged
into a grounded electrical socket.
6. Do not use an extension cord.
Test Run
Before using the refrigerator-freezer, clean it and make a test run to see if it follows the
behavior described here. If not, check the electrical supply. If the cause of the trouble
cannot be located, contact your SUMMIT dealer.
1. Set the Temperature Control Knob at the OFF position and then plug the power
cord into an electrical outlet of 115 volts, 60Hz. The compressor should not run.
2. Set the Temperature Control Knob at the MAX position and let the refrigerator
operate for 20 minutes. The freezer compartment should get slightly frosted and
the compressor should run smoothly with no noise but a soft hum.
3. Then rotate the Temperature Control Knob counter-clockwise toward the MIN
position. Before the pointer of the knob reaches MIN, the compressor should turn
off.
ATTENTION
Your appliance is equipped with a special protective
thermostat control device.
If the unit is turned off or
unplugged, YOU MUST ALLOW THREE (3) MINUTES
BEFORE RESTARTING OR REPLUGGING THE UNIT.
The unit will not start if you attempt to restart it in less than
three (3) minutes.

Reversing the Door Swing
Refer to the Disassembly Diagram on page 7 and change the door hinges following
this procedure: (The numbers in the diagram indicate the procedure order in the
instructions.)
1. Remove the hinge cap by twisting it off.
2. Remove the upper hexagonal head screws. The refrigerator door can now be
removed.
3. Tilt the refrigerator back or lay it on its back for steps 4, 5 and 6. Use a pad or
blanket to protect the floor and to avoid scratching the painted finish.
4. Remove the leveling legs by turning them counter-clockwise. Remove the lower
hexagonal head screws, two on the hinge side and one near the front corner of
the other side.
5. Attach the left side leg spacer to the other side hole which is positioned
symmetrically.
6. Attach the bottom hinge symmetrically to the other side of the cabinet.
7. Remove the upper hinge plastic pins and insert them in the holes from which the
screws were removed in procedure 2.
8. Take off the hinge collar caps using a screwdriver and insert them in the hinge
collar on the opposite side.
9. Attach the shaft to the refrigerator door. Attach the door to the bottom hinge and
secure them with the screws from procedure 4.
10. Attach the upper hinge to the refrigerator door. Do not tighten the screws
completely.
11. The direction in which the door opens has now been changed. However, the
following points should be checked:
a. Make sure the door is on straight.
b. Make sure there is no space between the door gasket and the refrigerator
unit itself when the door is closed.
c. Make sure the gasket on the hinge side is not caught between the door
and the unit when the door is opened or closed. (If the door is forced
closed when the gasket is caught, the gasket may be damaged.)
When checking the above points, if it is discovered that the door is not
installed properly (this is apt to happen on the first try), loosen the screws
holding the upper hinge, straighten the door and tighten the screws slowly
with the socket wrench. After making sure the door is installed correctly,
tighten all the screws holding the hinge. If they are not tightened, the door
may slip out of position or there may be an opening between the door and
the unit.
12. Stand the unit back in the upright position.

OPERATION
Temperature Control
The temperature in the refrigerator compartment can be adjusted colder or warmer by
turning the Temperature Control Knob. Colder temperatures can be achieved by turning
the knob clockwise toward the MAX position. Warmer temperatures can be selected by
turning the knob counter-clockwise toward the MIN position.
The refrigerator temperature will vary depending on the quantity of food stored and on
the frequency with which the door is opened. Set the Control Knob at the MAX position
only when ice cubes are needed in a hurry.
This appliance may turn on and off more frequently than regular-size refrigerators. This
is normal for a compact refrigerator.
Normally the Temperature
Control Knob should be set at
the MED position.
Ice Cube Tray
The ice cube tray is flexible. Twist the tray to remove ice cubes.
Do not use boiling water or a metal instrument such as a knife or screw driver to remove
the ice cube tray because this could damage plastic parts or the evaporator.
