Vacation and moving tips
Leave the freezer operating during vacations of one to three weeks long.
If the freezer will not be used for several months:
• Remove all the food, turn the control to neutral position, and unplug the power
• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
• To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the freezer lid open slightly, blocking
it open if necessary.
• Unplug the power cord.
• Remove the food, defrost the freezer, and clean it thoroughly.
• Secure all loose items, such as the base panel, shelves and the slide-out
basket, to prevent damage.
• In the moving vehicle, secure the freezer in the upright position, making sure
that it can not move. Also protect the exterior of the freezer with a blanket, or
if the freezer is kept closed. If the power failure continues, pack seven or eight
pounds of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours.
Always wear gloves and use caution when handling dry ice.
If the freezer is not working, see "Freezer does not run" in the Checklist of
Common Problems of this manual. If you cannot solve the problem, call the
authorized service immediately.
Do not open the freezer lid unnecessarily. If the freezer remains off for several
hours, follow the directions above for the use of dry ice during a power failure.
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch inner metal surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
Unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet (to avoid electrical hazards)
when defrosting the freezer.
