How to Connect Electricity
For personal safety, this
appliance must be
properly grounded.
The power cord of this
appliance is equipped with a
3-prong (grounding) plug
which mates with a standard
3-prong (grounding) wall
outlet to minimize the
possibility of electric shock
hazard from this appliance.
Use of Adapter Plug
Because of potential
Temporary Method
hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly
(Adapter plugs not
recommend against use
permitted in Canada.)
of an adapter plug.
Align large prongs/slots.
However, if you still elect
to use an adapter, where
local codes permit, a
TEMPORARY
CONNECTION may be
made to a properly
grounded 2-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.
Use of an adapter plug will increase the clearance needed for the back
of the refrigerator.

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 overheated wires.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT...PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Preferred method
Insure proper
grounding exists
before using.
Insure proper grounding and firm
connection exists before use.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR REMOVE
THE THIRD (GROUND) PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD.
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a 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 in place with one hand while pulling the power cord plug
with the other 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 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.
