PROPER DISPOSAL OF YOUR OLD FREEZER OR REFRIGERATOR
WARNING
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors or lid from your old freezer or
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or brain damage.
IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned freezers or refrigerators are still
dangerous — even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are
getting rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow these
instructions to help prevent accidents.
Important information to know about disposal of
refrigerants:
Dispose of freezer in accordance with Federal and Local
regulations. Refrigerants must be evacuated by a licensed,
EPA certified refrigerant technician in accordance with
established procedures.
Before You Throw Away Your Old Freezer or Refrigerator:
Take off the doors or lid.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb
inside.
INSTALLING YOUR FREEZER
Unpacking
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 freezer. For more information, see
“Safety.”
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install freezer.
When Moving Your Freezer:
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Your freezer is heavy. When moving the freezer for
cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with cardboard
or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull the freezer
straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the
freezer when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur.
Remove Packaging Materials
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the
freezer. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive
with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.

Clean Before Using
Upon Moving to Final Location
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your
freezer before using it. See the cleaning instructions in “Caring for Your
Freezer.”
NOTE: Allow for a 3" (7.5 cm) clearance at the top and sides and a ¹⁄₄"
(6.4 mm) clearance between the appliances.
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from freezer.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Ventilation and Clearance
Do not remove ground prong.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from
freezer.
Do not cover the freezer with items such as blankets, sheets,
tablecloths, etc. This reduces air circulation.
Allow at least 3" (7.5 cm) of air space at the top and on both sides
of the freezer and 1" (2.5 cm) between the back of the freezer and
the wall. If the freezer is to be next to a fixed wall, leave extra space
on the hinge side so the door can open wider.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your freezer into its final location, it is important to
make sure you have the proper electrical connection.
Temperature
Recommended Grounding Method
Your freezer operates most efficiently when located in an area where
the temperature will not fall below 40°F (5°C). Place your freezer in a
location where the temperature will not fall below this recommended
temperature.
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical
supply is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving
only your freezer be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned off
by a switch. Do not use an extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or removing
a light bulb, press and hold TEMP SETTING for 3 seconds to turn off
cooling, and then disconnect the freezer from the electrical source.

Freezer Leveling and Door Closing
Style 1—Without Grille
Style 2—With Grille
1. Locate the two front leveling legs taped among the packing
materials.
2. Screw these legs into the front holes on the bottom of the freezer.
The back of the freezer rests on two fixed supports.
3. Adjust the front legs enough to lift the cabinet up off the floor.
4. Place a leveling tool on top of the freezer first side to side, then
front to back. Turn leg counterclockwise to raise a corner. Turn leg
clockwise to lower a corner.
Your freezer has two front adjustable legs — one on each side.
The back of the freezer rests on two fixed rollers. The base grille covers
the adjustable brake feet and roller assemblies located at the bottom of
the freezer below the freezer door. Before making any adjustments,
remove the base grille and move the freezer to its final location.
Tools Needed: ¹⁄₄" hex driver, Phillips head screwdriver
1. Remove the base grille screws. Grasp the grille firmly and pull it
toward you. Open the freezer door to access the brake feet.
NOTE: To allow the freezer to roll more easily, raise the brake feet
by turning them counterclockwise. The front rollers will be touching
the floor.
5. Repeat Step 4 until freezer is level.
6. After freezer is fully loaded with food, recheck with level as in
