NOTE

warm as the compressor
works to transfer
heat from
the inside. Temperatures

particularly
important
in hotter climates
to allow enough
space for air circulation
around your freezer.

corners resting firmly
on
o solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
o
fully loaded

be
level
in order
to
function
properly.
If
the
freezer is not leveled
during

misoligned
and not close or seal properly,
causing
cooling,
frost, or moisture problems.
