5.
Repeat Step 4 until freezer is level.

After freezer is fully loaded with food,
recheck with
level as in
Step 4.
The outside
of your freezer may feel warm. This is normal. The
freezer's design and main function
is to remove heat from
packages
and air space
inside the freezer. The heat is transferred
to the room air, making the outside
of the freezer feel warm.
Adjusting Control
Turn control
to a higher number for colder temperatures.
Turn control to a lower number
for less cold temperatures.
NOTE: The small snowflake
icon represents
the number
1 or
the least cold setting.
The large snowflake
icon represents
6 or
the coldest
setting.
FREEZERUSE
In order to ensure proper temperature,
you need to permit
proper
airflow
in the freezer. As shown
in the illustration,
cool air enters
through
the freezer wall and moves down. The air then
recirculates
through
the vent near the bottom.
Do not block any of these vents with food packages.
If the vents
are blocked,
airflow
will be restricted,
and temperature
and
moisture
problems
may occur.
IMPORTANT:
To avoid odor transfer
and drying
out of food, wrap
or cover foods tightly.
Turn the freezer temperature
control to 4. This setting is designed
to maintain the temperature
at or near 0°F (-17.8°C) under normal
operating
conditions.
Allow the freezer to cool 6 to 8 hours
before filling with frozen
food. Let the freezer cool overnight
before adding
large amounts
of unfrozen
food. Do not add more than 2 to 3 Ibs (907 to 1,350 g)
of unfrozen
food per cubic foot (28.32 L) of freezer space.
NOTE: When the freezer is first started,
the compressor
will run
constantly
until the freezer is cooled.
It may take up to 6 or
8 hours (or longer), depending
on room temperature
and the
number
of times the freezer door is opened. After the freezer is
cooled, the compressor
will turn on and off as needed to keep the
freezer at the proper temperature.
This setting causes the freezer to run continuously,
driving the
freezer temperature
to the coldest
possible
temperature.
To
activate,
adjust the control
knob to the igloo icon, which
represents
the fast freeze setting.
Use this feature just before
adding
large amounts
of unfrozen
foods.
For best food quality, do
not exceed 3 Ibs (1,350 g) per cubic foot (28.32 L). Return to your
normal setting after 24 to 48 hours.
Temperature Alarm (on some models)
The temperature
monitor
alarm is located to the left of the
temperature
control
and sounds
an audible alarm if the
temperature
reaches 10°F (-12°C) or more above normal for the
selected
setting.
The alarm is controlled
by a three-position
switch.
I
0
The proper
setting for normal freezer use. The alarm
is on, and the amber light will be illuminated.
Keeps the alarm from sounding
when the freezer is
warm, such as during start-up
or defrosting.
Tests the alarm regardless of temperature.
To lock or unlock
the freezer, you must hold the key in the lock
while turning. The lock is spring
loaded, so the key cannot
be left
in the lock.
If the key is lost, contact
your dealer for a replacement.
Always
give the model
and serial number
of your freezer when requesting
a replacement
key.
