Bnstallation
NOTE
The exterior
wails of the freezer may become
quite
warm as the compressor
works to transfer
heat from
the inside. Temperatures
as much as 30°F warmer
than
room temperature
con be expected.
For this reason it is
particularly
important in hotter climates
to allow
enough
space for oir circuJofion
around your freezer.
Leveling
The freezer must have oil bottom
corners resting firmly on
o solid floor. The floor
must be strong enough to support o
fully loaded
freezer. NOTE: It is Very Important
for your
freezer
to
be
level
in order
to function
properly.
If
the
freezer
is not leveled
during instoJJotion, the door moy be
misoligned
and not close or seal properly,
causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems.
