The electric cord should be serviced
only by qualified service personnel.
Contact nearest authorized service
facility for examination, repair, or
adjustment.
Flammable aerosols and combustible
products (gas for lighters, banana oil,
alcohol, gasoline, propane, etc.) or
products that bear a small flame
symbol should not be stored in
freezers, do not even come close to
the freezer, as they may cause
explosions.
Do not place your freezer outdoors.
Do not use your freezer near water,
e.g. next to a sink, in a wet cellar ou
near a swimming pool, or other similar
location.
To avoid the risk of fire, never place lit
candles on top of the freezer.

Proper disposal of your freezer

• Risk of child entrapment.
• Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned freezers are still dangerous — even if they will sit for "just a few
days." If you are getting rid of your old freezer , please follow the instructions
below to help prevent accidents.

Before you throw away your old freezer

• Remove doors.
• Leave shelves inplace so children maynot easily climb inside.
Remove the door(s) of any appliance that is not in use, even if it is being
discarded.

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 nameplate for the correct electrical rating. The power cord
of the appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug forprotection
against shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three prong receptacle, protected with a 15-amp time delay fuse or circuit
breaker. The receptacle must be installed as per the national electrical code
and local codes and regulations.
Contact 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, the 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 that your house
voltage is high or low, contact the power company in order to test it.
• Do not bend, knot or pinch the power cable.
• For defrosting, pull out the plug first.

Energy saving tips

• This product should be placed away from heat and avoid direct sunshine.
Otherwise it may effect on the working-efficiency of the freezer.
• Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature before placing them into the
freezer. Overloading the freezer forces the compressor to run for longer periods.
Foods that freeze too slowly may lose quality or spoil.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly and wipe containers dry before placing them
into the freezer. This reduces the frost build-up inside the freezer.
• Freezer grids should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper
towels. Liners interfere with cold air circulation and decrease the freezer
efficiency.
• Organize and label food to reduce lid openings and extended searches.
Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the lid as soon as
possible.
