Energy Conservation Measures

This appliance is designed for efficiency with heavy foam
insulation. However, there are things that the user can do to
maintain the appliance in operating condition.
• Do not operate the appliance any colder than necessary to
maintain safe, product storage temperatures.
• Make sure the appliance is located to prevent direct exposure
to sunlight, air ducts, etc.
• Keep the lid closed except for normal use. Inspect the lid often
to see that it self-closes and the gaskets are in good condition.
• Do not overstock the product in the cabinet because it will
block the normal air flow. See illustration below.
• Have at least annual inspections by a qualified service
company to see that the refrigerant charge is correct.
• This appliance operates more efficiently in a cooler ambient
than in a hot ambient. Try to maintain an ambient below 80ºF
(27ºC) and 65% RH (Relative Humidity) for maximum efficiency.
