This Use & Care Guide provides specific
operating instructions for your model. Use
the unit only as instructed in this Use & Care
Guide. Before starting the appliance, follow
these important setup steps.
• Choose a place that is near a grounded
electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug.
• For the most efficient operation, the
freezer should be located where
surrounding temperatures will not exceed
110°F (43°C). Temperatures of 32°F (0°C)
and below will NOT affect freezer
operation. Additional compressor heaters
are not recommended.
• Allow space around the unit for good air
circulation. Leave a 1-inch (25.4 mm)
space at the back and on top and a
3/8-inch (9.5 mm) space on the sides of
the appliance for adequate circulation.
The freezer must have all bottom corners
resting firmly on a solid floor that is strong
enough to support a fully loaded freezer.
It is Very Important for the appliance to be
level in order to function properly. If not
level, the door may be misaligned and not
close or seal properly, causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems.
The appliance is equipped with adjustable
front leveling feet. Turn the foot clockwise
to raise the side of the unit. Turn counter-
clockwise to lower the side. Adjust each side
as needed until front of unit is level. Also
adjust so that front of the unit is 1/4˝ higher
than back, so that door stays closed.
Door Handle Installation
1. Handle Attachment Bolt
2. Set Screw
3. Set Screw Cap
• Place the holes in the handle ends
over the handle attachment bolts on the
front of the door and slide handle down.
Mount handle so that set screw holes
face the near edge of door.
• Using the supplied hex key, tighten the
set screws in the handle ends to secure
the handle to the bolts.
• Push the screw caps into the set screw
holes to cover the screws.
• Wash any removable parts, the freezer
interior, and exterior with mild detergent
and warm water. Wipe dry. Do not use
harsh cleaners on these surfaces.
• Do not use razor blades or other sharp
instruments, which can scratch the ap-
pliance surface when removing adhesive
labels. Glue left from the tape can be
removed with a mixture of warm water
and mild detergent, or touch the residue
with the sticky side of tape already re-
moved. Do not remove the serial plate.
Freezer Mode Energy Saving Ideas
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature
before placing in freezer. Overloading
the freezer forces the compressor to run
longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may
lose quality or spoil.
The freezer should be
located in the coolest area
of the room, away from
heat producing appliances
or heating ducts, and out
of direct sunlight.
