Use your freezer only as instructed in this Use and Care Guide. Energy Saving Ideas • 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.
The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support a fully loaded freezer. It is VERY IMPORTANT for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door/lid may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost or moisture problems.
The power on light indicates that the freezer is properly connected to an electrical power. The light glows even when the temperature control is turned to “OFF”. If the light goes out, refer to “Freezer does not run” in the Avoid Service Checklist section.

Defrosting It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when ¼ to ½ inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on the upper part of the freezer due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door/lid is opened.
IF A POWER FAILURE OCCURS: Frozen foods will stay frozen for at least 24 hours if the freezer is kept closed. If the power failure continues, pack seven or eight pounds of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours. Look in the Yellow Pages under “Dry Ice”, “Dairies”, or “Ice Cream Manufacturers”...
