Remove all packing material and tape. Install on a level floor or well-supported counter. Avoid any direct sunlight, heat source, or moisture. This refrigerator is designed to be
freestanding
— that is, the appliance is to be installed at least 1½” from the wall and the cabinet bottom is at least ¾” to 1” above the floor or carpet, in order to let the air circulate
freely around the refrigerator. If this appliance is
recessed
,
built-in
or otherwise enclosed to restrict airflow, then all warranties stated herein are null and void.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

120 volts, 60 Hz.

ELECTRICAL GROUNDING

(for 120-volt models only)
Must be grounded. Uses 110-120 volts, 60 Hz.
(60 cycles A.C.) Do not use extension cord. Use three-prong plug, with three-prong grounded wall outlet.
Unless the above grounding method is followed, you are not protected against severe or lethal shock, in the event of a short circuit of an electrical component or wiring of
refrigerator.

CAUTION

Should you unplug refrigerator, allow at least three minutes before restarting in order to allow the start relay to function properly.

USE AND CARE INFORMATION

TIPS ON EVERYDAY USE AND CARE
TO CONTROL TEMPERATURE
: Normally the Temperature Control Knob should be set at the
3
position.
The refrigerator and freezer compartment temperature can be adjusted colder or warmer by turning the Temperature Control Knob. Colder temperature can be achieved by
turning the Control Knob clockwise towards the
MAX
position. Warmer temperature can be selected by turning the Control Knob counterclockwise towards the
1
position.
Set the knob at MAX position only when ice cubes are needed in a hurry. Be sure to return Control setting to normal position when the ice cubes have been made.
When room temperature is high and Temperature Control knob is set at 5 or MAX position for a long time, it is possible that the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment will
be frosted heavily which may cause insufficient cooling of the refrigerator compartment. In this case, the Temperature Control Knob should be set at the 2 position or lower.
Then, set the knob at normal position.
Refrigerator compartment temperature and freezer compartment temperature will vary depending on the quality of foods stored and upon the frequency with which the doors
are opened.
DEFROST
: This refrigerator has separate defrosting systems for each compartment:
1. Freezer Compartment
When freezer compartment is frosted about ¼-inch thick, defrosting is required. Frost will interfere with proper freezing.
When frost is thin or soft, scrape off and remove frost on freezer compartment walls with scraper. This can be done without interrupting freezing operation.
When frost is hard, icy or heavy, defrost freezer compartment as follows:
Remove foods from freezer compartment. Then set Temperature Control Knob to the OFF position. When the ice/frost on the side walls and ceiling of the freezer
compartment comes off, remove ice and melted water with scraper and cloth. After defrosting, reset Temperature Control Knob to normal position and start freezing.
2. Refrigerator Compartment
As long as Temperature Control Knob is set at the normal position, the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment is automatically defrosted and no manual operations
are needed to defrost. Defrosted water is drained out to an evaporating tray on the back of the refrigerator cabinet and is evaporated therein.
FOR ALL CLEANING
: Mix 2 tablespoons baking soda or mild soap with 1 quart warm water. No strong cleaners, scouring powder or pads should be used. Do not put the
defrost tray in the dishwasher. Vacuum the tubing on outside back when dusty.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
1. Allow 24 hours for your refrigerator to reach a new temperature setting.
2. The motor will start and stop often. It must do so in order to maintain the temperature you select.
3. Keep your refrigerator reasonably level.
4. Unplug refrigerator before doing anything with its electrical system (even changing a light bulb).
