PIZZA SHELF
(SOME
UPRIGHT
MODELS)
Here is the place to store up to four extra-large boxes of frozen pizza
without ever having to dig them out from beneath a pile of other
stored goods. To change the location of the pizza shelf: support the
bottom center of the shelf with one hand and use your other hand
to gently ease each support tab outward until they have all dropped
between the edge of the shelf and the liner wall. It may help to slide
the supporting shelf slightly to the side opposite that in which you
are removing the tabs in order to get a larger gap between the edge
of the supporting shelf and the liner wall.
Next, locate the pizza shelf beneath the shelf nearest your desired
location and snap each tab upwards between the wire or glass shelf
and liner until the tab has snapped into place and is resting on top
of the supporting shelf. Repeat for each tab until all four are firmly
in place and then load with desired items.

CHEST
DiViDER
(SOME
CHEST
MODELS)
Use these clever dividers to custom-arrange
a variety of different-
sized storage bins in the bottom of your chest freezer. Use the
peel-n-stick labels found in your literature packet to help remind you
which items are stored where. If you have an item that isn't already
covered by one of the pre-printed labels then use one of the blank
labels and a permanent marking pen to make your own custom label.
Labels can be peeled off when no longer needed and replaced by
new and different ones.

Some upright freezers are frost-free and defrost automati-
cally, but should be cleaned occasionally.
BETWEEN
DEFROSTINGS
To avoid frequent defrosting, occasionally use a plastic
scraper to remove frost. Scrape with a pulling motion.
Never use a metal instrument to remove frost.
DEFROSTING
Freezer must be
unplugged (to avoid
electrical hazard) from power source
when defrosting unit.
It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when 1Ato
Y2 inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accu-
mulate faster on the 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.
To Defrost Upright IVlodels with Defrost Drain:
Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by
pulling it straight out.
To access external drain tube on models with a base panel,
first remove the two screws from the base panel. Locate the
drain tube near the left center under the freezer.
Place a shallow pan under the drain tube. Defrost water will
drain out. Checkthe pan occasionally so water does not overflow
(see figure 1).
A 1/2inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the freezer
directly into a floor drain. If your model is not equipped with an
adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware stores.
Replace the drain plug when defrosting
and cleaning
are
completed.
If the drain is left open, warm air may enter the
freezer.
