wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
•
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power
cord supplied.
•
Plug the appliance into an exclusive, properly installed, grounded wall outlet. Any
questions regarding power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified
electrician or an authorized Summit service center.
•
It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
a receptacle that cannot be turned off with a switch or pull chain.
•
The use of extension cords is strongly discouraged.
•
This appliance requires a standard 115/120-volt, 60 Hz electrical outlet with three-prong
ground and a 15-amp fuse. To prevent accidental injury, the power cord should be
secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling.
Use
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning or removing a light bulb, turn the
thermostat control to 0 (OFF) and then disconnect the unit from the electrical power

Check the electrical conditions before plugging in the freezer.
2.
When operating for the first time
With the freezer empty, turn the thermostat to its highest setting.
It should reach a steady
temperature in 2 to 3 hours. Then turn the thermostat to its required setting and place foods
inside.
3.
Temperature control
The temperature in the freezer is controlled by turning the knob of the thermostat. A setting
of 0 switches the unit off, and 3 is the coldest setting. The closer to the 3 position the knob is
8
set, the lower the temperature becomes. A medium setting is the most suitable for general
operation. The freezer's temperature will vary depending on the quantity of foods stored and
the frequency of the door opening. In order to maintain good cooling efficiency and save
energy, we recommend that you do not overfill the freezer or open the door too frequently.
CAUTION: To prevent damage, do not attempt to turn the thermostat clockwise beyond the
3 position.
Cleaning and Maintenance
1. Defrosting
The freezer must be manually defrosted. This should be done when frost is more than ¼”
(5mm) thick.
a. Power off the freezer, open the door and remove all food to a cool place.
b. Remove the freezer drawers.
c. Remove ice and frost, or let it melt naturally. Do not use an electric heater.
d. Clean up the remaining water with a clean soft cloth.
e. Put the drawers and food back inside the freezer. Power on again.
NOTE: If you want to speed up the defrosting process, put a bowl of hot water inside the
cabinet and close the door.
CAUTION: Never use sharp or metallic instruments (e.g. knives) to remove frost/ice from
the evaporator as this will damage the evaporator. A punctured evaporator will cause
serious problems.
2. Cleaning
The inside of the freezer should be cleaned often.
a. Power off the appliance
b. Use a soft towel with water or mild, non-abrasive cleanser to scrub away any food
residue.
c. Wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
NOTE: Do not pour water onto the outer walls of the freezer, since this will affect the
insulation. Do not use hot water, acid, alkali, gasoline, benzene, caustic cleanser,
alcohol, or hard brushes to clean the plastic parts.
3.
Turning off the unit
9
If possible, avoid turning off the freezer. Let it work for long periods of time, even if there
is no food being stored. This will help keep the appliance working properly for a long
time.
If you must turn it off and not use it for a long period of time, turn the thermostat knob to 0
(OFF) and unplug the appliance. Follow the information above for cleaning it and keep it
in a dry, clean place. Store the freezer with the door slightly open to reduce the formation
of mold and to prevent the door gasket from sticking to the cabinet.

Normal operation
The following items do not indicate a problem with the appliance; they are part of normal
operation:
• If there is a sound like water flowing, this is the compressor operating.
• If you hear a pinging sound, it is caused by the sudden change of temperature
making metallic material in the unit expand or contract.
• The compressor is hot. (When the compressor is working, it can reach a temperature
of 194°F, or 90°C.)
• The exterior sides of the freezer are hot. (The two sides can reach a temperature of
131°F, or 55°C.)
