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

Do not allow children to
climb, stand or hang on the

They could damage the
refrigerator and seriously
injure themselves.
Do not store or use gasoline
or other flammable vapors
and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance.
Keep fingers out of the "pinch
point" areas; clearances
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.
between the doors and

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 temperature
control dial to the OFF
position stops cooling but
does not shut off power to
the refrigerator.
CFC Disposal
Your old refrigerator has a
cooling system that used CFCs
(chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs 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.
