How to connect electricity

For personal safety, this appliance must
be ~ro~erlv prounded.
The power cord of this
appliance is equipped
with a three-prong
(grounding) plug which
mates with a standard
three-prong (grounding)
wall outlet to minimize
the possibility of electric
shock hazard from
this appliance.
Use of Adapter Plug
Because of potential
safety hazards under
Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada.
certain conditions,
Align large prongs/slots.
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 available at most local
hardware stores.
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the
larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper polarity
in the connection of the power cord.

Electrical Requirements

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.

Insure proper grounding and firm
connection exists befora use.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
If you have only a standard two-prong wall outlet,
it is your personal responsibility and obligation to
have it replaced with a properly grounded three-
prong wall outlet.
DO NOT, UNDER Am CIRCUMSTANCES,
CUT OR REMOVE THE THIRD (GROUND~G)
PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.
CAUTION: Attaching an adapter ground terminal to
the wall outlet cover screw does not ground the
appliance unless the cover screw is metal, and not
insulated, and the wall outlet is grounded through the
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 1~0 volts.
