Power Failure/Freezer Failure
Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off
for several hours.
If a power failure occurs, frozen foods will stay frozen for
at least 24 hours if the freezer is kept closed. If the power
failure continues, pack seven or eight pounds of dry ice
into the freezer every 24 hours. Look in the Yellow Pages
under Dry Ice, Dairies, or Ice Cream manufacturers for
local dry ice suppliers. Always wear gloves and use caution
when handling dry ice.
If the freezer has stopped operating, see "Freezer Does
Not Run" in the Troubleshooting Guide. If you cannot solve
the problem, call an authorized servicer mediately.
If the freezer remains off for several hours, follow the
directions above for the use of dry ice during a power
failure. If necessary, take the food to a local locker plant
until the freezer is ready to operate. Look in the Yellow
Pages under "Frozen Food Locker Plants".
