CAUTION
Help Prevent Tragedies
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the
past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous
- even if they sit out for "just a few hours".
CAUTION
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow
the instructions below to help prevent accidents.
If the appliance was shipped, handled, or stored in other
than an upright position for any period of time, allow the appliance to sit upright for a period of at least 24 hours before
plugging in. This will assure oil returns to the compressor.
Plugging the appliance in immediately may cause damage
to internal parts.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:
• Take off the doors or remove the drawers.
• Leave the shelves in place so children may not easily
climb inside.

INSTALLING YOUR APPLIANCE
Select Location
The proper location will ensure peak performance of your
appliance. We recommend a location where the unit will
be out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. To
ensure your product performs to specifications, the recommended installation location temperature range is from 55
to 115°F (13 to 46°C).
Front Grille,
keep this area
open.
Cabinet Clearance
Ventilation is required from the bottom front of the appliance. Keep this area open and clear of any obstructions.
Adjacent cabinets and counter top can be installed around
the appliance as long as the front grille remains unobstructed.
!
Front Leveling
Legs
Rear
Leveling
Legs
Figure 1
CAUTION
Leveling Legs
Adjustable legs at the front and rear corners of the appliance should be set so the unit is firmly positioned on the
floor and level from side to side and front to back. The overall height of your DCS appliance may be adjusted between
the minimum, 333⁄4" (85.7 cm), by turning the leveling leg in
(CW ↷) and the maximum, 343⁄4" (88.3 cm) by turning the
leveling leg out (CCW ↶).
Front Grille
Do not obstruct the front grille. The openings within the
front grille allow air to flow through the condenser heat exchanger. Restrictions to this air flow will result in increased
energy usage and loss of cooling capacity. For this reason
it is important this area to not be obstructed and the grille
openings kept clean (See Figure 1). The use of a custom
made grille is not recommended as it may restrict air flow.
To adjust the leveling legs, place the appliance on a solid
surface and protect the floor beneath the legs to avoid
scratching the floor. With the assistance of another person,
lean the appliance back to access the front leveling legs.
Raise or lower the legs to the required dimension by turning
the legs. Repeat this process for the rear by tilting the appliance forward using caution. On a level surface check the
appliance for levelness and adjust accordingly.
The front grille screws may be loosened and the grille adjusted to the desired height. When adjustment is complete
tighten the two front grille screws. (See Figure 2).

Step by step instructions for locating the position of the bracket:
WARNING
If your refrigerator is not located under a counter
top (free standing), you must use an anti-tip device
installed as per these instructions. If the refrigerator is
removed from its location for any reason, make sure
that the device is properly engaged with the anti-tip
bracket when you push the refrigerator back into the
original location. If the device is not properly engaged,
there is a risk of the refrigerator tipping over, with the
potential for property damage or personal injury.
1) Decide where you want to place the drawer refrigerator.
Slide it into place, being careful not to damage the floor,
leaving 1" (2.5 cm) of clearance from the rear wall to allow
room for the anti-tip bracket.
2) Raise the rear leveling legs approximately 1⁄4" (6 mm) to
allow engagement with the anti-tip bracket. Level the unit
by adjusting all the leveling legs as required. Turning the
leveling leg counterclockwise will raise the unit and clockwise will lower the unit.
3) Make sure the refrigerator is in the desired location, then
mark on the floor the rear and side corner of the cabinet
where the anti-tip bracket will be installed. If the installation
does not allow marking the rear corner of the cabinet, then
make temporary lines on the floor marking the front corner
of the cabinet, excluding the drawer. Slide the refrigerator
out of the way. From the temporary line extend the sidewall
line back 211⁄2" (54.6 cm) as shown in Figure 7.
NOTE
If installing on a concrete floor, concrete fasteners are
required, (not included with the anti-tip kit).
!
4) Align the anti-tip bracket to the marks on the floor so
the side of the bracket lines up with the side of the cabinet
mark, and the "V" notches on the anti-tip bracket line up
with the end of the 211⁄2" (54.6 cm) line (Rear of cabinet
line).
CAUTION
Any finished flooring should be protected with appropriate
material to avoid damage when moving the unit.
5) Fasten the anti-tip bracket to the floor using the supplied
screw. (See Figure 7).
Floor Mount Installation
6) Slide the cabinet back into position, making sure the rear
cabinet leveling leg slides under the anti-tip bracket engaging the slot.
The anti-tip bracket is to be located on the floor in the left
or right rear corner of the refrigerator drawer as shown in
Figure 6.

ventilation for the refrigeration system to expel heat.
4. Plug your appliance into a dedicated power circuit. (Not
shared with other appliances).
5. When initially loading your new product, or whenever
large quantities of warm contents are placed within
refrigerated storage compartment, minimize drawer
openings for the next 12 hours to allow contents to pull
down to compartment set temperature.
6. Maintaining a relatively full storage compartment will
require less appliance run time than an empty compartment.
7. Ensure drawer closing is not obstructed by contents
stored in your appliance.
8. Allow hot items to reach room temperature before placing in product.
9. Minimize drawer openings and duration of drawer
openings.
10. Use the warmest temperature control set temperature
that meets your personal preference and provides the
proper storage for your stored contents.
11. When on vacation or away from home for extended
periods, set the appliance to warmest acceptable
temperature for the stored contents.
12. Set the control to the “off” position if cleaning the
appliance requires the drawer to be open for an extended period of time.

STAINLESS STEEL MAINTENANCE AND OBTAINING SERVICE
!
Although some products are called "stainless steel cleaners," some may contain abrasives which could scratch the
surface, (compromising the protective chrome-oxide film),
and some many contain chlorine bleach which will dull,
tarnish or discolor the surface if not completely removed.
WARNING
Electrocution Hazard
• Never attempt to repair or perform maintenance on
the appliance until the main electrical power has been
disconnected. Turning the appliance control "OFF"
does not remove electrical power from the unit's wiring.
• Replace all parts and panels before operating.
After the stainless surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned,
a good quality car wax may be applied to help maintain the
finish.
Note: Stainless steel products should never be installed, or
stored in close proximity to chlorine chemicals.
Background
Whichever cleaning product you chose, it should be used
in strict accordance with the instructions of the cleaner
manufacturer.
Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as
ordinary steel, but it is not stain or corrosion proof. Stainless steels can discolor or corrode if not maintained properly.
How to Obtain Service:
For warranty service, please contact your local service
provider or DCS Customer Care at (888) 936-7872. Before
you call, please have the following information ready:
Stainless steels differ from ordinary carbon steels by the
amount of chromium present. It is this chromium that
provides an invisible protective film on the surface called
chrome-oxide. This protective chrome-oxide film on the
surface can be damaged or contaminated, which may
result in discoloration, staining, or corrosion of the base
metal.
Care & Cleaning
Routine cleaning of the stainless steel surfaces will serve to
greatly extend the life of your product by removing contaminants. This is especially important in coastal areas which
can expose the stainless to severe contaminants such as
halide salts, (sodium chloride).
It is strongly recommended to periodically inspect and thoroughly clean crevices, weld points, under gaskets, rivets,
bolt heads, and any locations where small amounts of liquid
could collect, become stagnant, and concentrate contaminates. Additionally, any mounting hardware that is showing
signs of corrosion should be replaced.
Frequency of cleaning will depend upon the installation
location, environmental, and usage conditions.

Choosing a Cleaning Product
The choice of a proper cleaning product is ultimately that
of the consumer, and there are many products from which
to choose. Depending upon the type of cleaning and the
degree of contamination, some products are better than
others.
Before You Call for Service:
Check troubleshooting on page 14.
Typically the most effective and efficient means for routine
cleaning of most stainless steel products is to give the surfaces a brisk rubbing with a soft cloth soaked in warm water
and a gentle detergent, or mild mixture of ammonia. Rubbing should, to the extent possible, follow the polish lines of
the steel, and always insure thorough rinsing after cleaning.
