Locate in a cool, dry room
for most efficient operation. The freezer mechanism will run better
above 40 F. Leave room on both sides and back for heat to be given off
in air. Plug into a grounded outlet. Plug only into its own circuit so
an overload from another appliance cannot shut it off. It should be
leveled so the door closes tightly; uprights may be tilted slightly
from the front so the door closes readily.
If freezer is in out-of-way
location, check frequently to be sure it's running. If on vacation,
ask neighbor to check to be sure it doesn't go off and food spoil.
Never run frost-free freezers
where temperature goes below 60 F. Compressor will not run enough to
keep food from thawing and spoiling.
Defrost freezers about once a
year, before frost is 1/2 inch thick on inside walls and clean. Use a
plastic or wooden scraper, not a sharp instrument.
