Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still
dangerous...even
if they will sit for "just a few days." If
you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow
the instructions at right to help prevent accidents.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY
YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR
OR FREEZER
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that
children may not easily climb inside.
Your old refrigerator has a cooling system that used CFC's
(chlorofluorocarbons).
CFC's are believed to harm
stratospheric
ozone.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure
the CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a
qualified servicer. If you intentionally release this CFC
refrigerant, you can be subject to fines and imprisonment
under provisions of environmental
legislation.
IMPORTANT:
Please read carefully.

GROUNDING
METHOD
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own
individual properly grounded electrical outlet rated for
115 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off with a switch
or pull chain. Do not use an extension cord.
Where a standard two-prong wall outlet is encountered,
it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three=prong wall outlet.
Do not, under any circumstances,
cut or remove the
third (ground)
prong from the power cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation,
cleaning, or removing a light bulb, turn the control
(Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control depending
on the model) to OFF and then disconnect the refrigerator
from the electrical source. When you are finished,
reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and
reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer
Control, depending on the model) to the desired setting.
USE OF EXTENSION
CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend
against the use of
an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use
an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be
a UL-listed (in the United States) or a CSA-listed
(in Canada), 3-wire grounding type appliance extension
cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that
the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum)
and 120 volts.
Use of an extension cord will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the refrigerator.
