How to connect electricity
For personal safety, this
appliance must be
The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a three-prong
(grounding) plug which mates with
a standard three-prong (grounding)
wall outlet (Fig. 1) to minimize the
possibility of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
Use of Adapter Plug
Because of potential safety hazards
under certain conditions, we strongly
recommend against use of an adapter
plug. However, if you still elect to use
an adapter, where local codes permit,
a TEMPORARY CONNECTION
may be made to a properly grounded
two-prong wall outlet by use of a UL-
listed adapter (Fig. 2), available at
most local hardware stores.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate.
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause
a fire hazard from overheating wires.
IMPORTANT...Please Read Carefully
Have the wall outlet and circuit
checked by a qualified electrician
to make sure the outlet is properly

screw does not ground the appliance
unless cover screw is metal, and not
insulated, and wall outlet is
grounded through house wiring. –
You should have the circuit checked
by a qualified electrician to make
sure the outlet is properly grounded.
When disconnecting the power cord
from the adapter, always hold the
adapter with one hand. If this is not
done, the adapter ground terminal is
very likely to break with repeated use.
Should the adapter ground
terminal break, DO NOT USE the
appliance until a proper ground
has again been established.
Use of Extension Cords
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of
an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an
extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a
cord having a grounding-type plug and outlet and that
the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes
(minimum) and 120 volts.
