This Use & Care Manual provides specific operating instructions
for your model. Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this
Use & Care Manual. Before starting the refrigerator, follow
these important first steps.
LOCATION
• Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet.
Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
• If possible, place the refrigerator out of direct sunlight
and away from the range, dishwasher or other heat
sources.
• The refrigerator must be installed on a floor that is level
and strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• Consider water supply availability for models equipped
with an automatic ice maker.
CAUTION
Do Not install the refrigerator where the temperature
will drop below 55°f (13°C) or rise above 110°f (43°C).
The compressor will not be able to maintain proper
temperatures inside the refrigerator.
Do Not block the toe grille on the lower front of your
refrigerator. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the
proper operation of your refrigerator.
IMPORTANT
If you install your refrigerator in a garage or other unheated
area, you may experience freezer temperature problems
during the winter months when temperatures dip below 55° F.
Upgrading your refrigerator with a Garage Kit will lower the
minimum operating temperature of your unit to 34° F. This kit
can be ordered through the Electrolux Solutions Hotline (see
back cover).

INSTALLATION
DOOR OPENING
Your refrigerator should be positioned to allow easy access
to a counter when removing food. To make this possible, the
direction in which the doors open can be reversed. See Door
Removal & Reversal Instructions.
NOTE
If your refrigerator is placed with the door hinge side against a
wall, you may have to allow additional space so the door can
be opened wider.
LEVELING
All four corners of your refrigerator must rest firmly on a solid
floor. Your refrigerator is equipped with adjustable front rollers or
front leveling screws to help level your unit.
To Level Your Refrigerator:
1. Remove toe grille.
2. Use flat-blade
screwdriver or 3/8"
socket wrench to
adjust front rollers. Use
adjustable wrench to
adjust leveling screws.
NOTE
Raise the front of the refrigerator enough so the doors close
freely when opened halfway. The refrigerator should slope ¼"
to ½" from front to back. Then level the refrigerator from side
to side.
