reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be inserted into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or
if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has
a three blade grounding plug, and a three slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the
appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord should be equal to or greater than the
electrical rating of the appliance.
1.
Steady, flat location:
If the refrigerator is not leveled during installation, the doors may not close or seal properly, causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems. It is very important for the refrigerator to be level in order to function properly.
To level your refrigerator, you may either turn the level leg clockwise to raise that side to the refrigerator
or turn counter-clockwise to lower that side. Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator will
take some weight off the leveling leg. This makes it easier to adjust the leveling leg.
2.
Ventilation: Place refrigerator approximately 5 inches from the wall to ensure proper airflow to the
compressor. Do not place refrigerator near any heat resources such as a heater or stove as it will put a
strain on the compressor.
3.
Power supply:
• Check your local power source. This refrigerator requires a 110V-120V, 60Hz power supply.
• Use a receptacle that will accept the ground prong. 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.
(a) Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
(b) If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension
cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the extension cord must be
a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and (3) the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over
the counter top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
NOTES:
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate.
If you have only a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out
from the outlet.
