Starting the Refrigerator
Use of Adapter
Plug
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against use of an
adapter plug However, if you stilt elect to use an
adapter, where local codes permit, a TEMPORARY
CONNECT(ON
may be made to a properly grounded
2-prong waft outlet by use ofa UL listed adapter
(Fig. 2) available at most local hardware stores.
The larger slot in the adapter
must be aligned with the
larger slot in lhe wall outlet
to provide proper polarity
in the connection of the
power cord

BEFORE USE
.....
CAUTION:
Attaching an adapter ground teiminal to the
wall outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance
unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and the
wall outtet is grounded through the house wiring
You
should have circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
When disconnecting
the power
cord from the
adapter,
always hold the adapter with one hand
If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal is very
likely to break with repeated use.
Should the adapter
ground
terminal
break,
DO NOT USE the appliance
until a proper
ground
has again been established.
Use of Extension Cords
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use
of an extension cord_ However, if you stilt elect to use
an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it
be a UL listed 3-wire grounding type appliance
extension cord having a grounding type plug and
outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be
15 amperes (minimum) and t 20 volts.
Electrical Requirements
The refrigerator
should always
be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate This provides the
best performance and also prevents overloading
house
wiring circuits, which could cause a fire hazard from
overheating wires.
Location
• Install the refrigerator on o floor strong enough to
support it when it is fully loaded.
o Do not install it where the temperature will be
below 60°F. (16°C)
because it wilt not run often
enough to maintain proper temperatures.
• Do not install it next to your range, a heating vent
or where the sun will shine directly on it,
Clearances
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper
air circulation, and plumbingand electrical connections:
Sides
................
..................................
5/8"
(I 6 mm)
Top ................................................................
I" (25 mm}
Back ...................................................................
I" (25 ram)
(If built-in, allow 7/8" [22
mm]
at top for hinge covers.)
If the refrigerator
is against
a wall on either side,
allow
the following
door clearances:
For models up to and including 25, allow 3/4"
( 19 mm)..
For 27 models allow t _.6"(38 ram)..
Rollers
Adjustable rollers behind the base grille enable you to
move the refrigerator away from the wall for cleaning.
These rollers should be set so the refrigerator rests firmly
on the floor.. To assure that the doors will close
automatically
from a halfway-open
position, there is a
buibin tilt from the front to the back of the cabinet. Side-
by-side refrigerators also have specially designed door
hinges that lift both doors slightly when opened, allowing
the force of gravity to help close them securely.
To adjust the rollers:
,, Remove the base grille.
Grasp itat the bottom and
pull it out
° Turn the roller adjusting
screws clockwise
to raise
the refrigerator, counter-
clockwise
to lower
it Use
an adjustable wrench or
pliers on the 3/8" bolts.. Both
doors should dose properly
when bottom front edge of
refrigerator cabinet is about
5/8" (16 mm) from the floor
- To replace the base
grille, line up the prongs
on the grille with the clamps
on the refrigerator and push
back until the grille snaps
into place.
