Table of Contents


This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.
Place your freezer on a floor that is strong enough to support the freezer when it is fully loaded.
Allow 6 inches of space between the back and sides of the freezer, which allows the proper air circulation.
Place the freezer away from direct sunlight and sour ces of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct
sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme
cold ambient temperatures may also cause the freezer to not perform properly.
Avoid placing the freezer in damp areas.

Power supply:

Check your local power source. This freezer requires a 120V, 60Hz power supply.

(grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of
electric shock hazard from this appliance.
A. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
B. If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the extension cord must be a grounding
-type 3-wire cord, and (3) the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for at least 2 hours before placing
food in the freezer compartment.
The freezer should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that
matches the rating plate.
If you have only a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
Never unplug your freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the
