Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous even if they will sit for just a few days. If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.
Before You Throw Away Your
Old Refrigerator or Freezer:
? Take off the doors.
? Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants, which under federal law must be removed prior to product disposal. If you are getting rid of an old refrigeration product, check with the company handling the disposal about what to do.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.
Operating Instructions Installation Instructions
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
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.
If you have only a standard
2-prong wall outlet, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded
3-prong wall outlet.
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 refrigerator away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord.
Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.
