Before the refrigerator is used, it must be properly positioned and installed as described in this manual, so read the manual carefully. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using the refrigerator, follow basic precaution, including the following:

  • Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet, do not remove grounding prong, do not use an adapter, and do not use an extension cord.
  • It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use receptacles that cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain.
  • Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. These fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion. And do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
  • Before proceeding with cleaning and maintenance operations, make sure the power line of the unit is disconnected.
  • Do not connect or disconnect the electric plug when your hands are wet.
  • Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect power before cleaning or servicing. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or death.
  • Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of your refrigerator unless it is specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.


  • Use two or more people to move and install refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
  • To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, the front of the unit must be completely unobstructed. Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 60°F (16°C) and below 90°F (32°C). This unit must be installed in an area protected from the element, such as wind, rain, water spray or drips.
  • The refrigerator should not be located next to ovens, grills or other sources of high heat.
  • The refrigerator must be installed with all electrical, water and drain connections in accordance with state and local codes. A standard electrical supply (115 V AC only, 60 Hz), properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances is required.
  • Do not kink or pinch the power supply cord of refrigerator.
  • The fuse (or circuit breaker) size should be 15 amps.
  • It is important for the refrigerator to be leveled in order to work properly. You may need to make several adjustments to level it.

    • 2 Shelves
    • 1 Glass Lid
    • 1 Crisper
    • 1 Instruction Manual

  • Now, place the handle inside the bottom bracket and place the top outer (chrome) bracket on top of the handle as well and slide it over the already installed, top/inner
  • Finally, put the last set screw in place to keep the handle and brackets

Installing Your Unit

  • This unit is front vented, so the front bottom vent must remain unobstructed to operate
  • Place your unit on a floor that is strong enough to support the unit when it is fully loaded. To level your unit, adjust the leveling legs at the bottom of the
  • Locate the unit away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the unit not to perform properly.
  • Avoid locating the unit in moist
  • Plug the unit into an exclusive, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Products service
  • After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before placing food in the refrigerator 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 unit should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this unit 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. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.

This unit requires a standard 115 Volt AC /60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground. Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is  properly grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. The cord should be secured behind the unit and not left exposed or dangling to prevent accidental injury.

The unit should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never unplug the unit by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end. When moving the unit, be careful not to damage the power cord.

Extension Cord

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do not use an extension cord with this unit. However, if you must use an extension cord it is absolutely necessary that it be a 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 220 volts and at least 15 amperes.


Setting the Temperature Control

  • Your unit has only one control for regulating the temperature in the compartment. The temperature control is located inside on the upper right hand side of the compartment.
  • The first time you turn the unit on, set the temperature control to “6”.
  • The range of the temperature control is from position “OFF” to “6”. After 24 to 48 hours, adjust the temperature control to the setting that best suites your needs. The setting of “3” should be appropriate for home or office use.
  • To turn the appliance completely off, turn the temperature control to ”0” and unplug the unit.
  • General but not exact temperature ranges for the temperature controls are:
    Temperature Control Setting Temp Range
    0 Off – 55
    1 48 – 55
    2 45 – 48
    3 42 – 45
    4 39 – 42
    5 35 – 39
    6 33 – 35
  • Turning the temperature control to “OFF” position stops the cooling cycle but does not shut off the power to the unit.
  • If the unit is unplugged, has lost power, or is turned off, you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the unit will not start.


Do not use boiling water because it may damage the plastic parts. In addition, never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost as it may damage the cooling system and will void the warranty. We recommend using a plastic scraper.

Cleaning Your Unit

  • Turn the temperature control to “OFF”, unplug the unit, and remove the food, shelf, and tray.
  • Wash the inside surfaces with a warm water and baking soda solution. The solution should be about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water.
  • Wash the shelf and tray with a mild detergent solution.
  • The outside of the unit should be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water.
  • Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth before cleaning the area of the controls, or any electrical parts.
  • Wash the outside cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth

Failure to unplug the unit could result in electrical shock or personal injury.

Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature of your unit if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. If the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take the proper steps to protect your food.

  • Short vacations: Leave the unit operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
  • Long vacations: If the appliance will not be used for several months, remove all food and unplug the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the
    door open slightly: blocking it open if necessary.
  • Remove all the food.
  • Securely tape down all loose items inside your unit.
  • Turn the leveling legs up to the base to avoid damage.
  • Tape the door shut.
  • Be sure the unit stays secure in the upright position during transportation. Also protect the outside of unit with a blanket, or similar item.
  • The unit should be located in the coolest area of the room or island, away from heat producing appliances, and out of the direct sunlight.
  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the unit. Overloading the unit forces the compressor to run longer.
  • Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in the unit. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the unit.
  • Unit storage bin should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the unit less efficient.
  • Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
