GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the
risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This appliance is
equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be inserted
into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if
doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has a three
blade grounding plug, and a three slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance.
The marked rating of the extension cord should be equal to or greater than the electrical rating
of the appliance.

INSTALLATION

1. Steady, flat location:
If the refrigerator is not leveled during installation, the doors may not close or seal properly,
causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems. It is very important for the refrigerator to be level
in order to function properly. To level your refrigerator, you may either turn the level leg
clockwise to raise that side to the refrigerator or turn counter-clockwise to lower that side.
Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator will take some weight off the leveling
leg. This makes it easier to adjust the leveling leg.
2. Ventilation:
Place refrigerator approximately 5 inches from the wall to ensure proper airflow to the
compressor. Do not place refrigerator near any heat resources such as a heater or stove as it
will put a strain on the power supply
3. Power supply:
• Check your local power source. This refrigerator requires a 110V-120V, 60Hz power supply.
• Use a receptacle that will accept the ground prong. The power cord of this appliance is
equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding)
wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.
(a) Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
(b) If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or
extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the
extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and (3) the longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or table top where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
