You must follow these guidelines to
ensure that your refrigerator's safety
mechanisms are operating correctly.
The refrigerator must be plugged into
its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz,
AC-only non-GFCI electric outlet. The
power cord of the appliance is equipped
with a three-prong grounding plug for
your protection against electrical shock
hazards. It must be plugged directly
into a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. The receptacle must be
installed in accordance with local codes
and ordinances. Consult a qualified
electrician. Do not use an extension
cord or adapter plug.
If the power cord is damaged, it should
be replaced by the manufacturer,
service technician, or a qualified person.
Never unplug the refrigerator by
pulling on the power cord. Always
grip the plug firmly and pull straight
out from the receptacle to prevent
damaging the power cord.
To avoid electrical shock, unplug the
refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb or LED light.
Performance may be affected if
the voltage varies by 10% or more.
