This Use & Care Guide provides specific operating
instructions for your model. Use the freezer only as
instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before starting the
freezer, follow these important first steps.


Choose a place that is near a grounded eiectricai
outiet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter

For the most efficient operation, the freezer should
be located where surrounding temperatures will not
exceed 110“F (43“C). Temperatures of 32°F (0°C) and
below will NOT affect freezer operation. Additional

compressor heaters are not recommended.

Allow space around the unit for good air circulation.

Leave a 3 inch (75 mm) space on all sides of the

freezer for adequate circulation.


Discard The (4) Crating Screws

And (2) Wood Bases

NOTE: The exterior walls of the freezer may become quite

inside. Temperatures as much as 30° F warmer than room

air circulation around your freezer.


The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on
a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded freezer. NOTE: It is VERY IMPORTANT tor
your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the
freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be
misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling,
frost, or moisture problems.

To Level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a car­
penter’s level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust

To Level Chest Models:

If needed, add metal or wood shims between foot pads

and floor.


Wash any removable parts, the freezer interior, and
exterior with mild detergent and warm water. Wipe dry.

Do not use harsh cleaners on these surfaces.

which can scratch the appliance surface when

removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from the tape

can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent, or touch the residue with the sticky side
