INSTALLING YOUR FREEZER CONT.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT - SHOCK HAZARD

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT

• Make sure there is a suitable power Outlet (115 volts, 15 amps
outlet) with proper grounding to power the freezer.
• Avoid the use of three plug adapters or cutting off the third grounding in order to
accommodate a two plug outlet. This is a dangerous
practice since it provides no effective grounding for the freezer and may result in
shock hazard.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS- POTENTIAL SAFETY HAZARD

USE OF EXTENSION CORD

• Avoid the use of an extension cord because of potential safety hazards under
certain conditions. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire
extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot outlet that will
accept the plug. The marked rating of the extension cord must be equal to or
greater than the electrical rating of the appliance. DO NOT USE EXTENSION
CORD LONGER THAN 12 FT.

INSTALL LIMITATIONS

• Do not install your freezer in any location not properly insulated or heated e.g.
garage etc. Your freezer was not designed to operate in temperature settings
below 55˚ Fahrenheit.
• Select a suitable location for the freezer on a hard even
surface away from direct sunlight or heat source e.g. radiators,
baseboard heaters, cooking appliances etc. Any floor unevenness should be
corrected.
