IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner's Manual.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
This refrigerator must be properly installed
and located in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used.
Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang
on the shelves in the refrigerator. They could
damage the refrigerator and seriously injure
themselves.
Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment when hands are damp or wet.
Skin may stick to these extremely cold surfaces.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
In refrigerators with automatic icemakers,
avoid contact with the moving parts of the
ejector mechanism, or with the heating element
located on the bottom of the icemaker. Do not
place fingers or hands on the automatic
icemaking mechanism while the refrigerator
is plugged in.
DANGER! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE REFRIGERATOR
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
below 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.
2
Keep fingers out of the "pinch point" areas;
clearances between the doors and between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and
making repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be
performed by a qualified individual.
Turning the control to the 0 position does
not remove power to the light circuit.
Do not refreeze frozen foods which have
thawed completely.
Refrigerants
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants,
which under federal law must be removed prior
to product disposal. If you are getting rid of an
old refrigeration product, check with the company
handling the disposal about what to do.
