HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY

Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove
the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
For personal safety, this appliance must be
properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet
to minimize the possibility of electric shock
hazard from this appliance.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded.
Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your personal responsibility
and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which has
a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the
use of an extension cord.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power cords
that have become frayed or otherwise damaged.
Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion
damage along its length or at either end.
When moving the refrigerator away from the
wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the
power cord.
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 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.
