Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.


When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:

■ This refrigerator must be properly installed and located in accordance with the Installation

Instructions before it is used.

■ Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the shelves in the refrigerator. They could damage the refrigerator and seriously injure themselves.

■ Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment, particularly when hands are damp or wet. Skin may stick to these extremely cold surfaces.

■ Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

■ In refrigerators with automatic icemakers, avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the heating element that releases the cubes. Do not place fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in.

■ Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas; clearances between the doors and between the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.

Be careful closing doors when children are in the area.

■ Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and making repairs.

NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified individual.

■ Turning the control to the OFF position does not remove power to the light circuit.

■ Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.


Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous…even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer:

■ Take off the doors.

■ Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

CFC Disposal

Your old refrigerator has a cooling system that used

CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone.

If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a qualified servicer. If you intentionally release this CFC refrigerant you can be subject to fines and imprisonment under provisions of the

Federal Clean Air Act.


Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.

However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,

3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.
