a three-prong

PIug which
mates
with a standard three-prong

grounded.
Where a standard two-prong wall receptacle is en-
countered, it is the personal responsibility
and obli-
gation of the customer to have it replaced with a
properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT OR
REMOVE THE THIRD [GROUND) PRONG FROM
THE POWER CORD.
USAGE O FADAPTER
PLUG
Because of potential
safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the 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 receptacle by the use of a UL listed
adapter which is avail-
able at most local hard-
ware stores (Fig. 2). The
larger slot in the adapter
must be aligned
with
the larger
slot in the
wall receptacle
to pro-
vide proper polarity in
the connection
of the
power cord.

un less cover screw is metal, and not in-
sulated, and wall receptacle
is grounded
through
house wiring.
Custolmer
should have tile circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the
receptacle is properly grounded.
When disconnecting the power cord from the adap-
ter, 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 this hap-
pen, DO NOT USE the appliance
until a proper
ground has again been established.
2. THE REFRIGERATOR
SHOULD ALWAYS BE
PLUGGED INTO ITS OWN INDIVIDUAL ELECTf31-
CAL
OUTLET [11!5voH,60 hertz, single phase AC).
This is recommended
for best performance
and to
prevent overloading
house wiring circuits,
which
could cause a possible fire hazard from overheat-
ing wires.
USE OF EXTENSION
CORDS–Because
of poten-
tial safety hazards under certain
conditions,
we
strongly recommend against the use of an exten-
sion 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 exten-
sion cord and that the current carrying rating of the
cord in amperes be 15 amperes minimum. Such ex-
tension cords are obtainable through your local service
organization.
3. Repair or replace immediately all electric ser-
vice cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged.
Do not use a cord that shows cracks or
abrasion damage along its length or at either the
plug or connector
end.
4. Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
powercord.
Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight
out from the receptacle.
-.
5.
When moving your refrigerator away from the
wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the
power cord.
6. After your refrigerator is in operation, do not
touch the coki surfaces,
when hands
are dam-p or wet.
Skin may adhere to these ex-
tremely cold surfaces.
7. Do not
operate your refrigerator in the
