Important Safety
Instructions
Proper Disposal of Your
Refrigerator/Freezer
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.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR
OLD REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER:
•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 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. Remove
the door of a freezer when not in use, even if you plan to discard the
freezer.
Many communities have laws requiring you to take this safety
precaution.
Remove and discard any spacers used to secure the shelves during shipping.
Small objects are a choke hazard to children.

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 protected by Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupters (GFCI) are NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT use an extension cord
or 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 unit into an
outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord.
• Do not pinch, knot, or bend 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.
