which allows the proper air ventilation.
• Avoid Installation:
o On weak surfaces unable to support refrigerator when fully loaded.
o In direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Ambient
temperature below 50°F or above 85°F will hinder the performance of this
o In moist areas.
o In garage. This unit is not designed for any type of outside installation.

Installing Your Refrigerator
• Adjust the leveling feet to keep the refrigerator level.
• Plug the refrigerator into dedicated, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not
under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
• After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, turn the unit on and allow the unit to
cool down for 24 hours before placing food in the refrigerator or freezer compartment.


Electrical Connection
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk
of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it
replaced by an authorized service center.
This refrigerator should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this
refrigerator is equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong
wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third ground prong from the power
cord supplied.
This refrigerator requires a standard 115/120 Volt A.C. ~/60Hz electrical outlet with
three-prong ground.
This refrigerator is not designed to be used with an inverter.
The cord should be secured behind the refrigerator and not left exposed or dangling to
prevent accidental injury.
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and
pull straight out from the receptacle.
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance. Use of an
extension cord can negatively affect the performance of the unit.

Operating Your Refrigerator
Temperature Control
The temperature control is located inside the refrigerator
compartment. The refrigerator compartment temperature
control ranges from the warmest position "1" to the
coldest position "7". The first time you turn the unit on,
adjust the temperature control knob to a higher number
and run for at least 24 hours before putting food inside.
This will ensure the cabinet is thoroughly chilled before
food is inserted.
If you choose to change the thermostat setting, adjust the
thermostat by one increment at a time. After each movement of the control knob, allow
several hours for the unit to adjust completely. Large amounts of food may lower the
cooling efficiency of the appliance.


If the unit is unplugged or loses power; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before
restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the
refrigerator may not start.
Replacing the Interior Light

Unplugging the electrical cord from the wall outlet. Failure to do so may result in
electrical shock or personal injury. Replace the old bulb with a bulb of the same

Freezer Compartment Operation
Temperature Control
Your refrigerator has one control for regulating the
temperature in the freezer compartment. The
temperature control is located on the right side of the
freezer compartment’s interior back panel. For the best
performance, leave the freezer control at the midpoint
The range of the freezer temperature control is from
position "1" the warmest to "8" the coldest.
Please adjust the freezer control one increment
at a time until the desired temperature is reached.

Freezer Cold Control

Ice Tray
To make ice, pour cool water into ice tray and place it in the freezer
for two hours. To release ice cubes, twist the ice tray and the ice
cubes will separate from the ice tray. To shorten the time of making
ice, you can set the temperature control knob at a colder position.

Do not store canned foods or food stored in glass containers in the freezer

The Freezer Compartment
This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food. The storage life
of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded.
Place frozen food into the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. If there are
instructions on the packet, carefully follow these instructions regarding storage times.


Care and Maintenance
Cleaning Your Refrigerator

Disconnect the electrical unit from the wall outlet.
Clean interior and parts with a cloth soaked in lukewarm water and baking soda
solution. A solution of 2 tablespoons baking soda to a quart of water will clean and
neutralize odors. Rinse and wipe dry.
Be sure to keep the door gasket (seal) clean to keep the unit running efficiently.
The outside of the refrigerator should be cleaned with a warm damp cloth and mild
detergent. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire

Vacation Time
• For long vacations, remove all food. Then, unplug the electrical cord from the wall
• Clean the interior and leave doors open to avoid possible odor or mold formation.
• Use extreme caution in the case of children. The unit should not be accessible to
child’s play.
Moving Your Refrigerator
• Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall outlet.
• Remove all the food and securely tape down all loose items such as shelves,
drawers, and doors.
• Be sure the refrigerator stays in the upright position during transportation.
Energy Saving Tips
• The refrigerator should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat
producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of the direct sunlight.
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the
refrigerator. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the refrigerator.
• Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches


Changing the Reversible Door

additional support for the doors while hinges are being removed. Do not depend on the
door magnets to hold the door in place. It is recommended that two people perform this
task. DO NOT lay the appliance completely flat as this may damage the coolant system.
