If a power failure occurs, 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 "Freezer
does not run" in the Avoid Service Checklist Section of
this manual. If you cannot solve the problem, call an
authorized servicer 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."
