This Owner's Guide provides specific operating instruc-
tions for your model. Use the freezer only as instructed in
this Owner's Guide. Before starting the freezer, follow
these important first steps.
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical
outlet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter
For the most efficient operation, the freezer should
be located where surrounding temperatures will not
exceed 110°F (43°C). Temperatures of 32°F (0°C) and
below will NOT affect freezer operation.
compressor heaters are not recommended.
Allow space around the unit for good air circulation,
Leave a 3 inch (75 mm) space on all sides of the
freezer for adequate circulation.
3" (75ram) Air Space
NOTE: The exterior walls of the freezer may become quite
warm as the compressor works to transfer heat from the
inside. Temperatures as much as 30 ° F warmer than room
temperature can be expected.
For this reason it is particu-
larly important in hotter climates to allow enough space for
air circulation around your freezer.
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. NOTE:
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 may be
misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems.
To Level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a car-
penter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust
the plastic leveling feet in front, V2bubble higher, so that
the door closes easily when left halfway open.
