INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS

  • Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will go below 55°F (13°C) because it will not run often enough to maintain proper temperatures.
  • Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will go above 110°F (43°C) because it will not perform properly.
  • Install it on a floor strong enough to support it fully loaded.
  • Do not install the refrigerator in a location exposed to water (rain, etc.) or direct sunlight.

CONNECTING ELECTRICITY

Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.

Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.

The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.

A 115 Volt AC, 60 Hz, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical supply is required. This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.

Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.

Immediately discontinue use of a damaged supply cord. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified service professional with an authorized service part from the manufacturer.

When moving the refrigerator away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

UNPACKING REFRIGERATOR

IMPORTANT:

  • Handle with care when moving refrigerator to avoid either damaging the refrigerant tubing or increasing the risk of a leak.
  • When moving the refrigerator, never tilt it more than a 45° angle. This could damage the compressor and the sealed system. If the refrigerator has been placed in a horizontal position for any period of time, wait 24 hours before plugging in the refrigerator to allow the refrigerant to settle.

1. Remove all packaging material. This includes the corrugated base and all adhesive tape holding the refrigerator accessories inside and outside.

2. Inspect and remove any remains of packing, tape or printed materials before powering on the refrigerator.

3. If your refrigerator comes with smooth or stainless steel doors, please remove the clear film before turning it on for the first time. When removing the film, do not pull the film straight down as this could result in misaligned doors.

4. It is normal for the freezer door to be positioned slightly higher than the top of the cabinet when the refrigerator is first installed. This positioning is done at the factory to ensure a proper gasket seal once the door is weighted with food items.

LEVELING REFRIGERATOR

  • Your refrigerator has two leveling legs that are located in the front bottom corners of your refrigerator. After properly placing your refrigerator under its final position, you can level your refrigerator.
  • Leveling legs can be adjusted by turning them clockwise to raise your refrigerator or by turning them counterclockwise to lower your refrigerator. The refrigerator door will close easier when the leveling legs are extended

PROPER AIR CIRCULATION

  • To ensure your refrigerator 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. Your refrigerator is not designed to operate in temperatures below 55ºF(13ºC) or above 110ºF(43ºC)
  • Do not install your refrigerator in any location not properly insulated or heated, e.g. garage, etc. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heating sources such as radiators, heaters, and cooking appliances.
  • The following are recommended clearances around the refrigerator: Sides……………1” (25 mm)

Back..................2” (50mm)

Top...........,......1” (25 mm)

DOOR ALIGNMENT (If needed)

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

Using Adjustable Foot

  • Turn the adjustable foot 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

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.
  • There is a heating element inside the frame that helps prevent moisture from developing on the bar. The temperature of the surface may be warm, which is normal, and will not affect the performance of the refrigerator.

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.

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.

1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

2. Using a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent dissolved in warm water, wash removable parts and the interior surfaces. Rinse well and dry thoroughly.

3. Clean the exterior surfaces.

Painted metal: Wash painted metal exteriors with a clean, soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse surfaces with clean, warm water and dry immediately to avoid water spots.

Stainless steel: Stainless steel is corrosion resistant and not corrosion-proof. To help avoid corrosion of your stainless steel, wash stainless steel surfaces with a clean, soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent in warm water. Rinse surfaces with clean, warm water and dry immediately to avoid water spots.

NOTE: When cleaning stainless steel, always wipe in the direction of the grain to avoid cross-grain scratching.

4. Clean door seals every 3 months. Wash the joints using a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent diluted in lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry well. Apply a little petroleum jelly to the hinge side gaskets will maintain the flexibility of the gasket and guarantee a good seal.

5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power source.

LIGHTS

The interior lights of the refrigerator turn off when the doors are open for more 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.
