Optional Features
Wire Shelf Bookend
Use these bookends
to keep the boxed
items stored neatly in
your freezer. To adjust
location, simply unsnap
the bookend from the
wire shelf and snap into
the next desired location.
Pizza Shelf
the shelf below, and still store up to two pizzas.
Chest Divider
(some chest models)
Use these clever dividers
to custom-arrange a
variety of different-sized
storage bins in the bottom
of your chest freezer.
Use the peel-n-stick
labels found in your
literature packet to help
remind you which items
are stored where. If you have an item that isn't already
covered by one of the pre-printed labels then use one of
the blank labels and a permanent marking pen to make
your own custom label. Labels can be peeled off when no
longer needed and replaced by new and different ones.
Examples of Chest Divider
Wire Shelf Bookend
Pizza Shelf
upright models)
Here is the place to store
up to four large frozen
pizzas without ever
having to dig them out
from beneath a pile of
other stored goods.
The pizza shelf can be
retracted to provide
space for taller items on

Care and Cleaning
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch
inferior metal surfaces with wet or damp hands.
Some upright freezers are frost-free and defrost
automatically, but should be cleaned occasionally.
Between Defrostings
To avoid frequent defrosting, occasionally use a plastic
scraper to remove frost. Scrape with a pulling motion.
Never use a metal instrument to remove frost.
Freezer must be unplugged (to avoid electrical hazard)
from power source when defrosting unit.
It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when ¼
to ½ inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to
accumulate faster on the upper part of the freezer due
to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door
is opened. Remove food and leave the door open when
defrosting the freezer.
To Defrost Upright Models with Defrost Drain:
• Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer
by pulling it straight out.
• To access external drain tube on models with a base panel,
first remove the two screws from the base panel. Locate the
drain tube near the left center under the freezer.
• Place a shallow pan under the drain tube. Defrost water
will drain out. Check the pan occasionally so water does
not overflow (see figure 1).
• A ½ inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain
the freezer directly into a floor drain. If your model is
not equipped with an adapter, one can be purchased at
most hardware stores.
• Replace the drain plug when defrosting and cleaning are
completed. If the drain is left open, warm air may enter
the freezer.
