IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
WARNING
Risk of child entrapment
Electrical Information
Child entrapment and suffocation are not
problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
appliances are still dangerous – even if they
will sit for “just a few days”. If you are getting
rid of your old appliance, please follow the
instructions below to help prevent accidents.
These guidelines must be followed to ensure
that safety mechanisms in the design of this
appliance will operate properly.
• Refer to the serial plate for correct
electrical rating. The power cord of the
appliance is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug for your protection against
electrical shock hazards. It must be
plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle, protected with
a 15-amp time delay fuse or circuit
breaker. The receptacle must be installed
in accordance with the local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Receptacles protected by Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) are NOT
RECOMMENDED. Do NOT use an extension cord or adapter plug.
We strongly encourage responsible
appliance recycling/disposal methods. Check
with your utility company or visit www.
recyclemyoldfridge.com for more information
on recycling your old appliance.
Before you throw away
your old appliance:
• Remove door.
• Leave shelves in place
so children may not
easily climb inside.
• Have the refrigerant
removed by a
qualified technician.
WARNING
Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not
use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
Do not remove any prong from power cord.
Grounding type wall receptacle
Do not, under
any circumstances,
cut, remove,
or bypass the
grounding prong.
Power cord with
3-prong grounded plug
• If the power cord is damaged, it should
be replaced by an authorized service
technician to prevent any risk.
• Never unplug the unit by pulling on the

Refrigerator / Freezer Pair
Kick Plate Removal
Leveling
The refrigerator must have all bottom corners
resting firmly on a solid floor.
The floor must be strong enough to support a
fully loaded refrigerator.
It is VERY IMPORTANT for your refrigerator
to be level in order to function properly. If the
refrigerator is not leveled during installation,
the door may be misaligned and not close
or seal properly, causing cooling, frost or
moisture problems.
To Level the Refrigerator:
While unit is lying on its back, note the location
of the four (4) leg levelers installed at each
corner. These leg levelers will be used to level
the refrigerator and to adjust the height. Use a
carpenter’s level to level the refrigerator from
front to back and side to side. Adjust the plastic
leveling feet in front, ½ bubble higher, so that
the door closes easily when left halfway open.
Leveling Instructions for Matching
Refrigerator / Freezer Pair:
• Level door of first unit using all four
levelers and slide unit into place. Recheck
for levelness and adjust if necessary.
• Measure distance from floor to bottom of
door on first unit. Adjust and level second
unit so door height matches.
Leg Level Adjustments:
The doors may also be adjusted side to
side with the slotted hinge for aligning the
doors parallel to each other. Loosen the two
bolts with a ⅜” wrench and one screw with
a Phillips screwdriver. Shift the doors until
parallel, then retighten the screw and bolts
securely. (See illustration below.)
Lower Hinge Adjustment for Leveling
the Doors of the Matching Refrigerator /
Freezer Pair
To level the doors using the adjustable lower
hinge (some models):
1. If the refrigerator door is lower than the
freezer door, raise the refrigerator door by
turning the adjustment screw clockwise
using a 7/16” socket wrench.
(See illustration below.)
2. If the freezer door is lower than the
refrigerator door, raise the freezer door by
turning the adjustment screw clockwise
using a 7/16” socket wrench.

STORAGE FEATURES
 NOTE
Leafy vegetables keep best when stored
with the humidity control set on HIGH
HUMIDITY, or in a drawer without a
humidity control. This keeps incoming air
to a minimum and maintains maximum
moisture content.
Adjustable Two-Liter Door Bins
This model is equipped with adjustable door
bins that can be moved to suit individual needs.
To Move Door Bins:
• Lift the bin straight up.
• Remove the bin.
• Place the bin in desired position.
• Lower the bin onto supports until locked
in place.
STORAGE FEATURES
Storing Foods
Fresh Food Storage
• Keep the fresh food compartment
between 34°F and 40°F with an optimum
temperature of 37°F.
• Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator
shelves, which reduces air circulation and
causes uneven cooling.
Fruits and Vegetables
• Store fruits and vegetables in crisper
drawers, where trapped moisture helps
preserve food quality for longer time periods.
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry securely so
leakage and contamination of other foods
or surfaces does not occur.
ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
Dairy Bin
Use the dairy compartment, at the top of the
fresh food compartment door, for short term
storage of cheese, spreads, or butter. The dairy
compartment is designed to be warmer than
the open storage area to accommodate these
types of food.
• Locate the appliance in the
coolest part of the room,
out of direct sunlight, and
away from heating ducts or
registers. Do not place the
unit next to heat-producing
appliances such as a range, oven, or
dishwasher. If this is not possible, a section
of cabinetry or an added layer of insulation
between the two appliances will help the
unit operate more efficiently.
• Level appliance so that the door closes tightly.
• Refer to the “SETTING THE
TEMPERATURE CONTROL” section for the
suggested temperature control settings.
Full Width Gallon Bin
The full width gallon bin is especially designed
to hold gallon-sized containers like milk gallons.
• Do not overcrowd the unit or block cold
air vents. Doing so causes the appliance
to run longer and use more energy.
• Cover foods and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the appliance. This
cuts down on moisture build-up inside
the unit.
• Organize the appliance to reduce door
openings. Remove as many items as
needed at one time and close the door as
soon as possible.
14
CARE AND CLEANING
Keep your refrigerator clean to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up any spills immediately and clean
at least twice a year. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong
alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher. Always
unplug the electrical power.
CAUTION
• When moving the refrigerator, pull straight out. Do not shift the refrigerator
from side to side as this may tear or gouge the floor covering.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch interior metal surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
Vacation and Moving Tips
Short Vacations:
• Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less than 3 weeks.
Long Vacations:
If the refrigerator will not be used for several months:
• Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
• Leave the refrigerator door open slightly, blocking it open if necessary, to prevent odor and
mold growth.
Moving: When moving the refrigerator, follow these guidelines to prevent damage:
• Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
• Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the refrigerator.
• Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets, and shelves by taping them securely in
place to prevent damage.
• In the moving vehicle, secure refrigerator in an upright position to prevent movement. Also
protect outside of refrigerator with a blanket, or similar item.
 NOTE
• Turning the refrigerator temperature control to “OFF” (See Pro SelectTM Electronic Control)
turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect electrical power to the lights or other
electrical components. Unplug the unit or switch the breaker that supplies power to the unit
to the off position.
• Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface when removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from tape or labels can be removed with
a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or, touch the glue residue with the sticky side
of tape you have already removed. Do not remove the serial plate.
