material
immediately

airtight
chambers,
and can

cause suffocation.
Proper disposal of your appliance
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment
and suffocation
are not problems
of the
past. Junked or abandoned
appliances
are still dangerous
= even
if
they will sit for "just a few days."
If you are
getting
rid of your
appliance,
please
follow
the instructions
below to help prevent accidents.
Before you throw
away
your old unit:
° Remove doors.
° Leave shelves in place so children
may not easily
climb inside.
IMPORTANT
Your old unit may have a cooling
system that used CFCs or
HCFCs (chlorofluorocarbons
or hydrochiorofluorocarbons).
CFCs and HCFCs are believed to harm stratospheric
ozone if released to the atmosphere.
Other refrigerants
may cause harm to the environment
if released to the
atmosphere.
If you are throwing
away your old unit,
make sure the refrigerant
is removed for proper disposal
by a qualified
technician.
If you intentionally
release
refrigerant,
you may be subject to fines and imprisonment
under the provisions of environmental
legislation.
