Use and care guide
Hide thumbs


Do not store or use gasoline, or other flammable vapors
and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior
wrap ping material immediately after the freezer is
unpacked. Children should never use these items
to play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads,
plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight
chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can
cause severe cuts, and destroy finishes if they come
in contact with other appliances or furniture.
An empty, discarded ice box, refrigerator, or freezer is
a very dangerous attraction to children.
Remove and discard any spacers used to secure the
shelves during shipping. Small objects are a choke
hazard to children.
Remove the door(s)
of any appliance
that is not in
use, even if it is being discarded.
of Child
Child entrapment
and suffocation are not problems of the past.
Junked or abandoned
or freezers are still danger-
ous - even if they will sit for "just a few days". If you are getting rid
of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow the instructions
below to help prevent accidents:
Remove the door/lid.
Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.
Have the refrigerant removed by a qualified technician.
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that
safety mechanisms
in the design of this freezer will
operate properly.
Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical rating.
The power cord of the appliance is equipped with
a three-prong grounding plug for your protection
against shock hazards. It must be plugged directly
into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle,
protected with a 15 amp time delay fuse or circuit
breaker. The receptacle must be installed in ac-
cordance with local codes and ordinances. Consult
a qualified electrician. Receptacles protected by
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFIC) are NOT
RECOMMENDED. Do not use an extension cord or
adapter plug.
If voltage varies by 10% or more, freezer perfor-
mance may be affected. Operating freezer with
power can damage the motor. Such dam-
age is not covered under the warranty. If you suspect
your house hold voltage is high or low, consult your
power company for testing.
To prevent the freezer from being turned off
accidentically, do not plug unit into an outlet con-
trolled by a wall switch or pull cord.
Do not pinch, knot, or bend the cord in any manner.
To defrost freezer, always unplug unit first.
Never unplug the freezer by pulling on the cord.
Always grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out from
the receptacle.
Turning the temperature control to OFF turns off the
compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the
light bulb or other electrical components.
