become airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are
not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned refrigerators or freezers are
still dangerous – 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.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator/freezer:
• Remove doors.
• Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb
• Have refrigerant removed by a qualified service
These Guidelines Must Be followed To Ensure That Safety
Mechanisms In This Refrigerator Will Operate Properly.
• The refrigerator must be plugged into its own
dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp, AC only electrical
outlet. The power cord of the appliance is equipped with
a three-prong grounding plug for your protection against
electrical shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a
properly grounded three prong receptacle. The receptacle
must be installed in accordance with local codes and
ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Avoid
connecting refrigerator to a Ground Fault Interruptor (GFI)
circuit. Do not use an extension cord or adapter plug.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced by
an authorized service technician to prevent any risk.
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out
from the receptacle to prevent damaging the power cord.
• Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.
• Performance may be affected if the voltage varies by
10% or more. Operating the refrigerator with insufficient
power can damage the compressor. Such damage is
not covered under your warranty.
• Do not plug the unit into an electrical outlet controlled by
a wall switch or pull cord to prevent the refrigerator from
being turned off accidentally.
Pressing and holding the On/Off button for 3 seconds, located on
the left side of the temperature control panel (Electronic controls),
or turning the Freezer and Fresh Food controls to "0" (Mechanical
controls) will disable your refrigerator's cooling system, but does
not disconnect the power to the light bulb and other electrical
components. To turn off power to your refrigerator you must
unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
To avoid personal injury or
property damage, handle
tempered glass shelves
carefully. Shelves may break
suddenly if nicked, scratched, or
exposed to sudden temperature
