INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS

IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor, household use only.

To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for 1" (2.54 cm) of space on each side, 2" (5.08 cm) of space behind the refrigerator, and open at the top.

NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where the temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a maximum of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature range for optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage and provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F (32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.

Recommended Grounding Method: A 115 volt, 60 Hz, AC only 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned oƪ by a switch. Do not use an extension cord.

NOTE: Before performing any type of installation or cleaning, disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and reset the temperature controls to the desired setting.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1 - UNPACK REFRIGERATOR

REMOVE PACKAGING

  • Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry. NOTE: Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. For more information, see “Refrigerator Safety.”
  • Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.

When Moving Your Refrigerator: Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur.

CLEAN BEFORE USING

After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of the refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in “Refrigerator Care.”

Important information to know about glass shelves, covers and door panels (on some models):

  • Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping. Glass shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when removing them to avoid impact from dropping.
  • Do not hit the glass door panels with pots, pans, furniture, toys or other objects. Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken its structure, causing an increased likelihood of breakage at a later date.
  • For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal.

STEP 2 - MAKE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

  • Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

NOTE: This refrigerator begins operating as soon as it is connected to the power supply.

STEP 3 - LEVELING AND DOOR ADJUSTMENT (IF NEEDED)

LEVELING

  1. Move the refrigerator to its final location.
  2. Turn the leg on the bottom, front of the cabinet to raise or lower that side of the refrigerator until the refrigerator is level side-to-side.
  3. Turn both front legs, by the same amount, to slightly raise the front of the refrigerator. This will make it easier for the doors to close. NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws. This makes it easier to turn the screws.

ALIGNING DOORS - If the edges of the refrigerator doors do not align with each other, you can make adjustments:

Adjust the Leveling Legs: Turn the leveling leg to raise or lower that side of the refrigerator.

  • Clockwise - to raise
  • Counterclockwise - to lower

Using Spacers (provided):

  • Open the door. With the door open, lift the door upward.
  • By hand or using pliers, clip the spacer (provided) onto the center hinge pin.

REFRIGERATOR USE

OPENING AND CLOSING DOORS

There are two refrigerator compartment doors. The doors can be opened and closed either separately or together.

  • There is a vertically-hinged bar on the left-hand refrigerator door.
  • When closing the left-hand refrigerator door, the hinged bar folds behind the right-hand door, joining the two refrigerator doors.

NOTE: Before closing the left-hand door, make sure the vertically-hinged bar is folded inward. If the bar is pulled outward it may become damaged when you try to close the door.

REMOVABLE FREEZER STORAGE DRAWER

IMPORTANT: Do not overload the drawers. Max. load of each drawer is 77 lbs (35 kg).

  • Remove the freezer draw by extending the drawer fully, and then lift up on the drawer and pull out to remove.

REFRIGERATOR CARE

CLEANING

Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically. However, clean both sections about once a month to avoid buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.

Because air circulates between both sections, any odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.

IMPORTANT:

  • Do not use harsh chemicals, ammonia, chlorine bleach, concentrated detergent, solvents, abrasives or metal scouring pads to clean your product inside or out. They can damage and/or discolor the refrigerator finish.
  • Do not use warm water to clean glass shelves while they are still cold. Glass may break when exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact.

1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

2. Clean the interior. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.

3. Clean the exterior surfaces.

For painted metal, glass and stainless steel finishes:

  • Wash surfaces using a clean, soft cloth or sponge, and a solution of mild detergent and warm water.
  • Rinse surfaces with clean, warm water, and then dry immediately with a soft cloth to avoid water spots.

NOTE:

  • If cleaning a model with glass door panels, do not hit the glass with pots, pans, furniture, toys, or other objects. Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the glass may weaken its structure, causing an increased likelihood of breakage at a later date.
  • Paper towels scratch and may dull a painted finish. To avoid possible damage, use only soft, clean cloths to polish and wipe the door.
  • When cleaning stainless steel, always wipe in the direction of the grain to avoid cross-grain scratching.

4. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

LIGHTS

The interior lights of the refrigerator turn oƪ when the doors are open for longer than 7 minutes.

IMPORTANT: Your refrigerator is equipped with LED lighting. These lights are designed to last for the life of your refrigerator. However, if the lights stop operating, please contact a qualified technician for replacement.

VACATION AND MOVING

VACATION

If You Choose to Leave the Refrigerator On While You’re Away:

  • Use up any perishables and freeze other items.

If You Choose to Turn Off the Refrigerator Before You Leave:

  1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and freezer.
  2. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
  3. Clean refrigerator. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  4. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the top of the lid or door(s) to allow air to circulate inside. This stops odor and mold from building up.

MOVING

When you are moving your refrigerator to a new home, follow these steps to prepare it for the move.

  1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all frozen food in dry ice.
  2. Unplug refrigerator.
  3. Clean refriigerator. Rinse, and dry thoroughly.
