Power Failure / Freezer Failure
Risk of Child Entrapment
If leaving the freezer door/lid open while on vacation, make certain
that children cannot get into the freezer and become entrapped.
DO NOT open freezer door/lid unnecessarily if freezer is off for
several hours.
Vacation and Moving Tips
Short Vacations:
• Leave the freezer operating during periods of non-use of less
than three (3) weeks.
Long Vacations:
If the freezer will not be used for several months:
• Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
• Leave the freezer door/lid open slightly, blocking it open if
necessary, to prevent odor and mold growth.
When moving the freezer, follow these guidelines to prevent
• Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
• Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the freezer.
• Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets, and
shelves by taping them securely in place to prevent damage.
• In the moving vehicle, secure freezer in an upright position to
prevent movement. Also, protect outside of freezer with a blanket
or similar item.
Frozen foods will stay frozen for at least 24 hours if the freezer is
kept closed. If the power failure continues, pack seven or eight
pounds of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours. Look in the Yellow
Pages under "Dry Ice", "Dairies", or "Ice Cream Manufacturers" for
local dry ice suppliers. Always wear gloves and use caution when
handling dry ice.
If the freezer has stopped operating, see the "Freezer does not run"
section in the Avoid Service Checklist section of this use and care
guide. If you cannot solve the problem, call an authorized service
personnel immediately.
If the freezer remains off for several hours, follow the directions
above for the use of dry ice during a power failure. If necessary, take
the food to a local locker plant until the freezer is ready to operate.
Look in the Yellow Pages under "Frozen Food Locker Plants".
