Important Safety
Proper Disposal of Your
Risk of child entrap-
ment. Child entrapment and suffocation
are not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned refrigerators or freezer are
still dangerous — even if they will sit for
"just a few days." If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator or freezer, please
follow the instructions below to help
prevent accidents.
*Remove doors.
*Leave shelves in
place so children
may not easily
climb inside.
Avoid fire hazard or
electric shock. Do not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug. Do not remove
any prong from the power cord.

Read all instructions before using this freezer.
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
Child Safety
Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after
the freezer is unpacked. Children should never use these items for play. Cartons
covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight
chambers and can quickly cause suffocation.
• A child might suffocate if he crawls into a freezer to hide or play. See Proper
Freezer Disposal left. Many communities have laws requiring you to take this
safety precaution.
Electrical Information
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety mechanisms in
the design of this freezer will operate properly.
• Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical rating. The power cord of the
appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against
shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into its own properly grounded three-
prong receptacle, protected with a 15 amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker. The
receptacle must be installed in accordance with the local codes and ordinances.
Consult a qualified electrician. Receptacles with Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters
(GFCI) are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT use an extension cord or an
adapter plug.
• If voltage varies by 10 percent or more, freezer performance may be affected.
Operating the freezer with insufficient power can damage the motor. Such
damage is not covered under the warranty. If you suspect your household voltage
is high or low, consult your power company for testing.
• To prevent the freezer from being turned off accidentally, do not plug the unit
into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord.
• Do not pinch, knot, or bend the power cord in any manner.
Other Precautions
• Never unplug the freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly
and pull straight out from the receptacle.
• Turning the control to OFF turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect
power to other electrical components.
