Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install freezer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove Packaging Materials
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the freezer. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the
adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your freezer. For more
information, see "Freezer Safety."
When Moving Your Freezer:
Your freezer is heavy. When moving the freezer for
cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with cardboard
or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull the freezer
straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or "walk" the
freezer when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of
your freezer before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
"Freezer Care."
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid


Location Requirements

Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from freezer.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: Do not install the freezer near an oven, radiator, or
other heat source, nor in a location where the temperature will fall
below 40°F (5°C).
Check the strength of the floor before installing your freezer. It
should hold the weight of a freezer fully loaded with food.
Allow at least 3" (7.5 cm) of air space at the top and on both sides
of the freezer and 1" (2.5 cm) between the back of the freezer and
the wall. If the freezer is to be against a wall, leave extra space on
the hinge side so the door can open wider.
NOTE: This freezer may be installed side by side with another
refrigerator or freezer. Allow for a 3" (7.5 cm) clearance at the top
and sides and a
" (0.64 cm) clearance between the appliances.
