Before using your freezer,
carefully read this manual and
the use and care information
inside the freezer door.
When your new freezer is delivered, check
thoroughly for shipping damage and missing parts.
If you find either, please notify Sears at once.
Location is Important
Your new freezer will work best in a dry, ventilated place,
where the temperature falls between 65° and 110° F.
Extreme temperatures can shorten the freezer’s life. Very
high temperatures (such as in an unventiiated garage in
summer) also will make your freezer run more, increasing
its operating cost.
Your freezer must be allowed enough space for proper air
circulation. This freezer is designed for FREESTANDING
INSTALLATION ONLY and should not be recessed or
built-in. Allow 3 inches of space on each side and rear
and 4 inches on the top of the cabinet. This is particularly
important in hotter climates.
Pick a spot where the floor will support the weight of the
freezer fully loaded. It is best to keep your freezer away
from an oven or other heat source. Pick a safe place,
indoors, away from flammables such as gasoline.
Leveling the Freezer
To ensure proper door seal and optimum performance,
level freezer using the leveling leg located on its bottom
Once your freezer is in the desired location, use a
carpenter's level and adjust the leveling leg as
necessary to make sure the cabinet is level
Adjust the leg to achieve a 1/4 inch slope from front-
2 bubble on a carpenter’s level) to provide
easy door closure and proper door seal.
If the rear corners need to be raised, use shims made
of wood or other hard materials. Cardboard and other
soft materials will not work.
120 Volts, 60 Hz (60 cycles AC), 15 amps
DC NCT use an extension cord.
Select an electric wall outlet that cannot be turned off
by a switch or pull chain. Be sure that the electric
outlet you select does not need a ceiling drop cord.
Use a fuse or circuit-breaker protected circuit that will
not become overloaded when the freezer is installed.
Your freezer comes with a three-prong plug and must be
inserted into a three-prong, grounded wail outlet.
WARNING: Unless the grounding method
described above is followed, you are not
protected against severe or lethal shock in the
event of the short circuit of the freezer’s wiring
or electrical components.
The freezer temperature is preset to maintain the ideal
temperature for food storage. The evaporator forms the
storage shelves of the unit which provides even freezing
temperatures throughout the freezer. Freezer temperature
will vary depending on the quantity of food stored and on
the frequency of door openings.
Wait 4 hours before loading the freezer. It takes time to
reach storage temperature. During this time the freezer
may run constantly.
