Safety Instructions

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owners Manual.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:

? Turning the control to the OFF position does not remove power to the light circuit on models with interior light.

? Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the shelves in the freezer. They could damage the freezer and seriously injure themselves.

? Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.

? After your freezer is in operation, do not touch the cold surfaces, particularly when hands are damp or wet. Skin may stick to these extremely cold surfaces.

? Unplug the freezer before cleaning, making repairs or changing the light bulb.

NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified individual.

? The maximum amount of food your freezer is designed to freeze at one time is approximately

3 pounds (1.5 kg) per cubic foot of freezer capacity. In normal position, your freezers temperature control will maintain sufficiently low temperatures in the freezer to freeze recommended quantities of food.

? Caution should be used when removing the door of a freezer. Particular caution should be used when removing the lid of a Chest freezer, as most

Chest freezer lids are under spring tension.

Contact the manufacturers representative for a method of safe removal.
