Installation Guide

Read these instructions completely and carefully.

Freezer Location

Your freezer should be conveniently located for day-to-day use in a dry, well-ventilated room.
Do not install the freezer where the temperature will go below 0°F (-18°C) or above 110°F (43°C), because it will not maintain proper temperatures.
Do not install the freezer in a location exposed to rainwater or direct sunlight.
Be sure to install your freezer on a floor strong enough to support it when it is fully loaded.

Level Freezer

Level the freezer from side to side and front to back so that the lid will seal properly. Use shims to level the freezer if necessary.
NOTE: It should not be necessary to remove the lid during installation. If, for some reason, the hinges need adjustment, call a professional service company.

Clearances and Ventilation

Allow at least 2” (50.8 mm) clearance on both sides of the freezer and 2” (50.8 mm) between the back of the freezer and the wall. Leave room above the freezer to open the lid.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from the freezer.

Lid Removal

CAUTION LIFTING HAZARD
The lid is heavy. Use both hands to secure the lid before lifting.

CAUTION HINGE SPRING UNDER TENSION
If it is necessary to remove the lid, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the lower part of the hinge cover and then remove the upper part.

  2. Open the lid to the maximum position. (The hinges are loosest at this position .)
  3. Remove the 4 screws from the upper part of the hinge and lid. Do this for each of the hinges.

  4. To reinstall the lid follow the steps in reverse. Tighten all hinge screws but avoid over-tightening to prevent stripping. Reinstall hinge covers.
