  1. Remove all packaging material. This includes the foam base and all adhesive tape holding the freezer accessories inside and outside.
  2. Inspect and remove any remains of packing, tape or printed materials before powering on the freezer. Risk of Fire or Explosion due to puncture of refrigerant tubing. Flammable refrigerant used. Handle with care when moving freezer to avoid either damaging the refrigerant tubing or increasing the risk of a leak.


  • Your freezer is designed for freestanding installation only. It should not be recessed or built-in.
  • When moving the freezer, never tilt it more than a 45· angle. This could damage the compressor and the sealed system.
  • If the freezer is tilted, let it stand in an upright position for at least 24 hours prior to plugging. This is to allow the refrigerant to settle.


  • Should install it in a location where there is proper air circulation, plumbing and electrical connections.
  • The following are recommended clearances around the freezer:
    • Sides . . . . . 2 in. (5.08cm)
    • Back . . . . . 2 in. (5.08cm)


  • Make sure there is a suitable power outlet (115 volts, 15 amps outlet) with proper grounding to power the freezer.
  • To accommodate a two plug outlet. This is a dangerous practice since it provides no


  • Do not install your freezer in any location not properly insulated or heated, e.g. garage, etc. Your freezer was not designed to operate in temperature settings less than 0 or more than 110° Fahrenheit.
  • Select a suitable location for the freezer on a hard, even surface away from direct sunlight or heat sources, e.g. radiators, baseboard heaters, cooking appliances, etc.
  • Do not install the freezer in a location exposed to rain water or direct sunlight.


Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded. Where a standard 2 prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. The freezer should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate. A 115 Volt AC, 60 Hz, 15- or 20 amp fused, grounded electrical supply is required. This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. Never unplug your freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet. Immediately discontinue use of a damaged supply cord. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified service professional with an authorized service part from the manufacturer. When moving the freezer away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.


  • Once the freezer is in its proper place, plug it in an electrical outlet having 115 volts and 15 amps.
  • Set the temperature on the temperature control knob, “1” being the warmest and “7” being the coldest. Initially set the temperature on “4”. Place food inside the freezer (green light will come on indicating that the freezer is in operation). After using the freezer for 24 hours, set the freezer to your desired setting.
  • In case you unplug your freezer or experience an electrical outage, allow 5 minutes before plugging it back in.


  • Your freezer will automatically maintain the temperature level you select. The temperature control dial has 7 settings plus OFF. “1” is the warmest, “7” is the coldest. Turning the dial to OFF stops cooling the freezer. Set the dial to “4” and allow 24 hours to pass before adjusting the temperature to your needs.


  • The removable basket allows you to store food more accessibly or you can remove it if not needed.



Frozen Food:

  • Wipe containers before storing to avoid needless spills.
  • Hot food should be allowed to cool before storing in the freezer. This will prevent unnecessary energy use.
  • When storing meats, keep in the original packaging or rewrap as necessary.
  • Proper freezer storage requires correct packaging. All foods must be in packages, which do not allow the flow of air or moisture in, or out. Improper storage will result in odor and taste transfer and will result in the drying out of the improperly packaged food.
  • Follow package or container instructions for proper storage.

Packaging Recommendations:

  • Plastic containers with air tight lids Heavy duty aluminum foil Plastic wrap made from saran film Self-sealing plastic bags
  • Do not refreeze defrosted/thawed foods.
  • It is recommended that the freezing date be marked on the packaging.

These are some suggestions for safe storage:

  • TV Dinners 3-4 months
  • Fresh Shrimp, scallops, crawfish 3-6 months
  • Hamburger & stew meats 3-4 months
  • Ground Turkey, veal, pork 3-4 months
  • Chops 4-6 months
  • Steaks 6-12 months
  • Chicken or turkey, whole 1 year

For detailed storage chart, visit the FDA website:


  • Defrost whenever the frost becomes 1 /4 in. thick. Never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove the frost as it may damage the cooling coils. A punctured coil will void the warranty.
  • Turn the temperature control to OFF position and unplug the unit. Remove the drain plug from the inside of the freezer. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. To defrost faster, keep the freezer door open.
  • For draining, place a tray beneath the outer drain plug. When done, push the drain dial in and turn the arrow to the up position. Re-plug the drain plug inside the freezer compartment.
  • Wipe the interior of the freezer and replace the electrical plug in the electrical outlet.
  • Reset the temperature control to the desired setting.


  • Boiling water, gurgling sounds or slight vibrations that are the result of the refrigerant circulating through the cooling coils.

Care and Maintenance


  • Prepare a cleaning solution of 3 – 4 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with warm water. Use sponge or soft cloth, dampened with the cleaning solution, to wipe down your freezer.
  • Rinse with clean warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
  • Do not use harsh chemicals, abrasives, ammonia, chlorine bleach, concentrated detergents, solvents or metal scouring pads. Some of these chemicals may dissolve, damage and/or discolor your freezer.


  • Clean door gaskets every three months according to general instructions. Gaskets must be kept clean and pliable to assure a proper seal.
  • Petroleum jelly applied lightly on the hinge side of gaskets will keep the gasket pliable and assure a good seal.


  • Occasionally there may be power interruptions due to thunderstorms or other causes. Remove the power cord from AC outlet when a power outage occurs. When power has been restored, replug power cord to AC outlet. If outage is for a prolonged period, inspect and discard spoiled or thawed food in freezer. Clean freezer before reusing.


  • For long vacations or absences, empty food from freezer, move the temperature DIAL to the OFF position and clean the door gaskets. Prop doors open so air can circulate inside. When moving, always move the freezer vertically. Do not move with the unit lying down. Possible damage to the sealed system could occur.
