Proper Disposal of Your Old Appliance:
Old refrigerators can represent a suffocation hazard to children!
1. Remove the doors from your old refrigerator .
2. Leave shelves in place.
3. If an old refrigerator contains refrigerants, it must be recycled by a licensed service or disposal company.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
UNPACKING
Excessive Weight Hazard! * Use two or more people to move and install your appliance.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
ALLOW APPLIANCE TO SIT UPRIGHT FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE TURNING ON, TO ALLOW THE
COMPRESSOR LUBRICANT TO DRAIN.
1. Remove Packaging Materials
2. Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the appliance. Rub a small amount of liquid
dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers. Rinse with warm water and dry.
3. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or
glue. These products can damage the surface of your appliance.
4. When Moving Your Appliance:
Your appliance is heavy. When moving the appliance for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor.
Always pull the appliance straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the appliance when trying to
move it, because floor damage can occur.
5. Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your appliance before using it. See the
cleaning instructions in “Appliance Care.”
6.If necessary level the refrigerator as needed for best operation.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from appliances. Failure to do so can
result in death, explosion, or fire.
LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT: Do not install the appliance near an oven, radiator, or other heat source, nor in a location
where the temperature will fall below 45°F (5°C). Do not place in direct sunlight.
Check the strength of the floor before installing your appliance. It should hold the weight of the fully loaded
appliance. Allow at least 1” (2.5 cm) of airspace at the top and on both sides of the appliance and 1” (2.5 cm)
between the back of the appliance and the wall. If the appliance is going to be placed against a wall, leave
extra space on the hinge side so the door can open wider than its width.
BE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT BLOCK THE AIRFLOW UNDER THE APPLIANCE .

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLACE
Place the appliance in a dry and regularly ventilated place. It is recommended that this appliance always be operated in an
ambient temperature of at least 60°F and under 85°F. The appliance may be exposed to lower or higher temperatures but
only for a short period of time and the temperature should never be lower than 45°F. Never place the appliance near heat
emitting devices (e.g. cooker, radiator, water heater or similar devices) and do not expose it to direct sunlight.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz. AC only 15- or 20- amp fused or circuit breaker protected, grounded electrical supply is required. It is
recommended that a separate circuit serving only your appliance be provided. Use outlets that cannot be turned off by a
switch or pull chain. Connect this appliance to a 3 prong power supply socket outlet (which has a ground terminal). If you only
have a two prong outlet have it replaced by a qualified technician with an outlet that meets the local codes. Required nominal
voltage and frequency are indicated on the rating plate. The connection to the power supply and grounding has to be made
according to current standards and regulations. The appliance resists temporary voltage tolerance from -15 to 10%.
IMPORTANT
Electrical Shock Hazard. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use a 2/3 adapter. Do
not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
Installation requires an outdoor rated 120 VAC 15A GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) electrical outlet adjacent to the refrigerator. The GFI outlet features an internal breaker that reduces shock hazard. This type of outlet should be installed
by a qualified electrician either inside the enclosure or near the location of the refrigerator installation.
Rating/Electrical Plate Location
The refrigerator rating plate is located on the inside, on the front right-hand side of the top panel. This plate has the
model and serial number, and the following electrical ratings:
115 Volts, 2.3 Full Load Amps, 60Hz, 1 Phase. The refrigerator is UL listed for outdoor use.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
 The more airflow you can provide around an appliance, the less energy it will use.
 Keep doors or drawers open a minimum of time, and shut securely.
LEVELING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
1. Locate the two front leveling legs mounted into the underside of the appliance.
2. Adjust the front legs just enough to lift the cabinet up off of the floor.
3. Place a leveling tool on top of the appliance first side to side, then front to back. Turn leg counterclockwise to raise a corner. Turn
leg clockwise to lower a corner.
4. Once you have achieved side to side level, increase the front to rear adjustment to be slightly higher at the front. This will ensure
the door closes automatically once it is released. Increase the front to rear adjustment until the door self-closes.
5. After appliance is fully loaded, recheck with level as in Step 3.

APPLIANCE USE
In order to ensure proper temperature, you need to permit proper airflow in the appliance. Do not block any
air vents. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be prevented, and temperature and moisture problems may
occur. Always position contents to allow airflow between shelves and products.
Allow the appliance to cool at least 6 to 8 hours before adding contents. Allow 24 hours for temperature to
stabilize.
NOTE: When the appliance is first started, the compressor will run constantly until the appliance is cooled, It
may take up to 6 or 8 hours (or longer), depending on ambient temperature and the number of times the
appliance door is opened. After the appliance is cooled, the compressor will turn on and off as needed to
keep the appliance at the proper temperature.
The outside of your appliance may feel warm. This is normal. The appliance’s design and main function is to
remove heat from products and air space inside the appliance. The heat is transferred to the room air,
making the outside of the appliance feel warm.
REFRIGERATOR SOUNDS
After your refrigerator has run for a while you may notice some normal operating sounds. Any hard surfaces
surrounding the unit, such as floors or cabinetry can make these sound louder. The following will explain
these sounds and their causes:
Our refrigerator uses a high efficiency compressor and fans to keep your 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.
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 may hear a gurgling sound caused by the refrigerant flowing inside your
refrigerator.
Each time the refrigerator starts and stops you may hear some clicking sounds.
You may hear condensation water dripping into the drip pan.
BASE KICK PLATE
To remove and replace the base kick plate:
1. Open the refrigerator door and remove the base kick plate by pulling it out from the bottom and lifting off
the top.
2. Replace the base kick plated by putting the clips in the openings in the refrigerator panel. Push in until the
kick plate snaps into place.

APPLIANCE OPERATION
INTERIOR LIGHTING
The refrigerator uses a clear-transition white light and a blue LED interior lighting system which can provide
crisp white light for viewing the products, and a cool blue LED for aesthetic purposes.
A three way rocker switch located just inside the door in the upper right corner controls the interior lights.
When the rocker switch is off (centered) the white light comes ON only when the refrigerator door is opened,
and goes OFF when the door is closed. When the rocker switch is pressed ON (to the right), the white light
stays on, door opened or closed. When the rocker switch is pressed ON (to the left) the white light comes on
only when the door is opened, and the blue LED lights stay on when the door is closed.
The lights can be powered OFF completely by removing the kick plate, locate the ON/OFF rocker switch behind the kick-plate and turning it OFF.
If the white lights or blue LED lights need replacement or service, contact Lynx Customer care for the location
of a service provider in your area.
LOSS OF POWER
In the event of a power outage or a temporary loss of power, unplug the refrigerator. After a loss of power
keep the refrigerator unplugged for at least 30 minutes to allow the refrigeration system to equalize. During
this time keep the door closed as much as possible to keep the interior as cold as possible.
REMEMBER: A full refrigerator stays cold longer than a partially filled one.
MOVING CARE FOR YOUR REFRIGERATOR
1. Remove all containers.
2. Unplug the appliance.
3. Clean it thoroughly.
4. Tape the appliance shut and tape the electrical cord to the cabinet.
5. When you get to your new location, refer to the “Installation Instructions” and “Appliance Use”
sections for information on installation and setting the controls.
*Excessive Weight Hazard! * Use two or more people to move and install your refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

APPLIANCE CARE
CLEANING YOUR FROST-FREE REFRIGERATOR
Use nonflammable cleaners.
Frost-free means that you do not have to defrost your appliance. Frost is removed by air moving and
collecting any moisture and depositing it on the cooling coil. The cooling coil periodically warms up enough to
melt the frost, and the water then flows down to the drain pan (located behind the base grill) where it is
evaporated.
Complete cleaning should be done at least once a year.
1. Unplug appliance or disconnect power.
2. Remove all substances.
3. Wash the inside walls with a solution of mild detergent in warm water or 2 tbsp. (26 mg) baking soda to 1
qt (0.95 L) 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 on plastic
parts, interior and door liners or gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning
tools. These can scratch or damage materials.
4. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
5. Use the appropriate cleaning method for your exterior finish.
Wash exteriors with a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or
harsh cleaners, or cleaners not designed for stainless steel. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. For additional
protection for exterior surfaces apply stainless steel appliance polish with a clean, soft cloth. This is especially
important in costal areas, and installations near a swimming pool, or where chlorides are present.
6. Plug in appliance or reconnect power.
7. Replace all shelves.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call...
Your refrigerator will not operate:
1. Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker/GFI tripped?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
2. There is water in the defrost drain pan. Is the refrigerator defrosting?
The water will evaporate. It is normal for water to drip into the defrost pan. Is it more humid than normal?
When it is humid, expect that the water in the defrost pan will take longer to evaporate.
3. The motor seems to run too much. Is there any frost buildup or a package preventing the door from
closing? Defrost and or clean the refrigerator, move packages so the door closes properly.
Is the room temperature hotter than normal?
The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal room temperatures, your motor will run about
40% to 80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, it will run even more.
Has a large amount of items just been added to the refrigerator?
Adding a large amount of items warms the refrigerator. The motor normally will run longer to cool the refrigerator back down. It can take several hours for the refrigerator to return to the normal temperature.
Is the door closed completely?
Push the door firmly shut. If it will not shut all the way, see “The door will not close completely” later in this
section.
Are the condenser coils dirty, preventing proper cooling (on some models)?
This prevents air transfer and makes the motor work harder. Clean the condenser coils.
Is the door gasket sealed all the way around?
Contact Lynx Customer Care.
NOTE: If the problem is not due to any of the above, remember that the compressor on your new
appliance will operate longer than your old one due to its high-efficiency motor.
Is the temperature is too warm? Are the air vents blocked? Is the door opened often?
This prevents cold air movement. Move objects away from the air vents. See “Ensuring Proper Air Circulation” for air vent locations. Be aware that the refrigerator will warm when this occurs. In order to keep
the refrigerator cool, try to get everything you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep items organized
so it is easy to find, and close the door as soon as the items is removed.
4. The door will not close completely or is difficult to open: Are items packages blocking the door? Rearrange containers so that they fit more tightly and take up less space. Examine the door gasket to see if
it is dirty, sticky or damaged. Are the shelves out of position? Put the shelves back into their correct positions. Adjust the leveling leg so that the refrigerator tilts a little to the rear. This will help the door close.
Check the door hinges, reposition and tighten if needed to prevent the door from sagging
5. Water has risen above the kick plate. Water can seep into the refrigerator foam insulation and cause it
to swell. Water reaching the GFI cord or the compressor may damage the electrical system.
