Location Requirements

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor household
use only.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for ½"
(1.25 cm) of space on each side and at the top. Allow for 1"
(2.54 cm) of space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has
an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line
connections. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall,
leave a 2" (5.08 cm) minimum space on the hinge side (some
models require more) to allow the door to swing open.
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where the
temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a
maximum of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature range
for optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage and
provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F
(32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.

Electrical Requirements

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an
extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation or cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn cooling off or turn the control
(Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control depending on the
model) to OFF, and then disconnect the refrigerator from the
electrical source. When you are finished, reconnect the
refrigerator to the electrical source and turn cooling on or reset
the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control
depending on the model) to the desired setting. See "Using the
Controls" in the User Instructions, User Guide, or Use & Care
Guide.
