Electrical Connections
Be sure to check the data plate, located on the liner of the cabinet, for required voltage prior to connecting the unit to power. The
specifications on the data plate supersede any future discussion.

The standard refrigerator is equipped with an eight (8) foot power cord that requires a 115 Volt, 60 Cycle, 1 Phase


grounded electrical receptacle. The power cord comes with a 3 prong plug for grounding purposes. Any attempt to cut off the
grounding spike or to connect to an ungrounded adapter plug will void the warranty, terminate the manufacturers responsibility and
could result in serious injury.

The circuit must be protected with a 15 or 20 ampere fuse or breaker. The unit must be isolated on a circuit and not plugged into an
extension cord.

Initial start up

After satisfying the installation requirements, the refrigerator is ready to start. The Compressor will start when the power cord is
connected to the required power source. If the Compressor does not start when the unit is initially plugged in, check to make sure
that the Temperature Control is not in the “off” position. Allow the unit to run for two hours before loading it with product. When
loading the unit with product, take care not to block the air flow in the cabinet as this would affect the units performance.

Temperature Control
The Temperature Control is located on the back of the cabinet and is factory set to maintain an average cabinet temperature of
approximately 38 Deg F. To obtain colder temperatures, press and hold the set button until the set point value flashes. Use the up
or down arrow buttons to change the value and then press the set button again. Allow the unit a minimum of one hour to respond to
a control setting adjustment.

Your Silver King refrigerator is an automatic defrost unit and no additional plumbing is required. Automatic defrosting is
accomplished when frost buildup on the Evaporator Coil is cleared during Compressor “off” cycles. Defrost water is collected in a
pan located in the compressor compartment where it is evaporated into the room air. It is important that the unit be installed level to
allow proper drainage of the defrost water.

Preventative maintenance is minimal although these few steps are very important to continued operation and maximizing the life of
the appliance.

Cabinet Surfaces
The cabinet interior is aluminum and stainless steel and the exterior is stainless steel. These surfaces should be cleaned
periodically with a solution of warm water and mild soap, rinsed and wiped dry with a soft cloth. A good stainless steel cleaner can
also be used. Should a surface become stained, do not attempt to clean with an abrasive cleanser or scouring pad. Use a soft
cleanser and rub with the grain of the metal to avoid scratching the surface. Do not use chlorinated cleaners. Always rinse well and
dry after cleaning.

Periodically, accumulated dust must be removed from the condenser. First, disconnect the unit from the
power supply. To clear the dust, vacuum or brush the condenser at the rear of the cabinet. This will need
to be done regularly to maintain the compressor warranty!

Door Gasket
The Door Gasket will collect dirt and should be wiped clean with a warm, mild soapy water solution to extend its life and assure
maximum cabinet performance and life.
