Serial No. ___________________________________________________ Register Your Product The self-addressed PRODUCT REGISTRATION CARD (shown left) should be filled in completely, signed and returned to Electrolux Home Products, Inc. This Owner’s Guide provides operating instructions for your mod- el. Use your freezer only as instructed in this Owner’s Guide. • 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. • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the freezer. Over- loading the freezer forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality or spoil. • Be sure to wrap foods properly and wipe containers dry before placing them in the freezer. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the freezer. • Freezer shelves and baskets should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the freezer less efficient. • Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close door as soon as possible.
Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation. • A child might suffocate if he crawls into a freezer to hide or play. Re- move the door of a freezer when not in use, even if you plan to discard the freezer. Many communities have laws requiring you to take this safety precaution. Electrical Information These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety mechanisms in the design of this freezer will operate properly.

Cool Down Period For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for freezer to cool down completely. • The freezer will run continuously for the first several hours. Foods that are already frozen may be placed in freezer after the first few hours of operation. Unfrozen foods should NOT be loaded into freezer until freezer has operated for 4 hours. • When loading freezer, freeze only 3 pounds of fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at one time. Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the freezer. It is not necessary to turn control knob to a colder setting while...
Defrosting It is important to defrost and clean freezer when ¼ to ½ inch of frost has accu- mulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on upper part of the freezer due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened. Remove food and leave the door open when defrosting the freezer. If the frost is soft, remove it by using a plastic scraper. If the frost is glazed and hard, fill deep pans with hot water and place them on the freezer bottom. Close the freezer door. Frost should soften in about 15 minutes. Repeat this procedure if necessary. Cleaning the Inside After defrosting, wash inside surfaces of the freezer with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 liters) warm water. Rinse and dry. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or any electrical parts. Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash removable parts in a dishwasher. Cleaning the Outside Wash the cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth. Replace parts and food.
