Wash the cabinet with warm water and mild liquid de­
tergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.

Replace parts and food.


If leaving the freezer

door open while on vacation, make
certain that children cannot get into
the freezer and become entrapped.


Short Vacations:

Leave the freezer operating during vacations of less

than three weeks.

Long Vacations:
If the freezer will not be used for several months:

Remove all food and unplug the power cord.

Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.

Leave the freezer door open slightly, blocking it open if
necessary, to prevent odor and mold growth.

Moving: When moving the freezer, follow these guidelines
to prevent damage:

Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.

Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the freezer.

Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets,
and shelves by taping them securely in place to
prevent damage.

In the moving vehicle, secure freezer in an upright
position to prevent movement. Also protect outside of

freezer with a blanket, or similar item.


NOTE: Do not open freezer door
unnecessarily if freezer is off for
several hours.

If a power failure occurs, frozen foods will stay frozen for

at least 24 hours 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. Look in the Yellow Pages
under Dry Ice, Dairies, or Ice Cream Manufacturers for lo­

cal dry ice suppliers. Always wear gloves and use caution
when handling dry ice.

If the freezer has stopped operating, see Freezer Does
Not Run
in the Troubleshooting Guide. If you cannot
solve the problem, call an authorized servicer immediately.

If the freezer remains off for several hours, follow the direc­

tions above for the use of dry ice during a power failure.

If necessary, take the food to a local locker plant until the

freezer is ready to operate. Look in the Yellow Pages under

Frozen Food Locker Plants.
