Unpacking Your freezer
1.
Remove all packaging material. This includes the foam base and all adhesive
tape holding the freezer accessories inside and outside. Slide out and
remove the plastic or foam guard used to protect
the compressor from shipping
damage due to vibration and shock.
2.
Inspect and remove any remaining packaging, tape or printed materials
before powering on the freezer.
3.
Check to be sure you have all accessories and parts listed in the Parts and
Features section.
Proper Air Circulation
To ensure that your freezer, works at the maximum efficiency
it was
designed for, you should install it in a location where there is proper air
circulation,
plumbing and electrical
connections.
The following
are recommended
clearances around the freezer:
I
5ides ...................3/4 inches (19mm) I
Top ......................2 inches (50mm)
Back ....................2 inches (50mm)
Electrical Requirements
Make sure there is a suitable power outlet (115 volts, 15 amps) with
proper grounding to power the freezer.
WARNING:
Avoid the use of three prong adapters.
NEVER cut off the third
grounding prong in order to accommodate
a two prong outlet. Cutting off the
grounding prong is a dangerous practice
since it provides no effective grounding
for the refrigerator
and may result in serious injury from electrical
shock.
Installation
Your freezer is designed for freestanding
installation on14 It should not be
recessed or built-in. Place the freezer on a floor strong enough to support it fully
loaded.
When moving the freezer, never tilt it by more than a 45 degrees angle. This
could damage the compressor and the sealed system.
tf the freezer has been tilted more than 45 degrees, let it stand in an upright
position for at least 24 hours prior to plugging it into the power source. This
will allow the refrigerant to settle and reduce the possibility of a malfunction in
the cooling system.
Plug the freezer into an exclusive, properly
installed grounded wall outlet. Do not
plug another appliance
into the same outlet as the freezer.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (grounding) prong from
the power cord. See the WARNING
in Electrical
Requirements on the previous
page. Any questions concerning
power and/or grounding should be directed
toward a certified electrician
or a Sears or other qualified service dealer
After plugging the appliance
into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for
24 hours before placing food into the freezer.
Installation
Limitations
Do not install your freezer
in any location not properly
insulated or
heated, such as a garage, etc. Your freezer was not designed to operate in temperature
settings below 55° Fahrenheit. Select a suitable location
for the freezer on a hard
even surface away from direct sunlight or heat sources such as radiators, baseboard
