This Use & Care Guide provides general
operating instructions for your model. Use
the unit only as instructed in this Use & Care
Guide. Before starting the unit, follow
these important first steps.

For the most efficient operation, the appliance
should be located where surrounding
temperatures will not exceed 110°F (43°C).
Temperatures of 32°F (0°C) and below will
NOT affect operation. Additional compressor
heaters are not recommended.
Allow space around the unit for good air
circulation. Leave a 3 inch (75 mm) space on
all sides of the unit for adequate circulation.
The exterior walls of the unit may become
quite warm as the compressor works to
transfer heat from the inside. Temperatures
as much as 30° F warmer than room
temperature can be expected. For this reason
it is particularly important in hotter climates
to allow enough space for air circulation
around your appliance.
The appliance must have all bottom corners
resting firmly on a solid floor. The floor must be
strong enough to support a fully loaded unit.
It is VERY IMPORTANT for your appliance to
be level in order to function properly. If the unit
is not leveled during installation, the lid may
be misaligned and not close or seal properly,
causing cooling, frost or moisture problems.
