(upright models)
These shelves contain cooling coils to freeze foods quickly and allow cold air to
constantly circulate throughoutthe
freezer. Do not use sharp metal objects such as
ice picks or scrapers to clean the shelves. This could damage the shelves and reduce
their cooling ability. These shelves are not adjustable.

Some upright freezers
are frost-free
and defrost
automatically,
but should be
cleaned occasionally. Before cleaning or defrosting, unplug the powercord from the
electrical outlet.
Between
Defrostings
To avoid frequent defrosting,
occasionally
use a plastic scraper to remove frost.
Scrape with a pulling motion. Never use a metal instrument
to remove frost.
Defrosting
It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when 1/4 to 1/2 inch of frost has
accumulated.
Frost may tend to accumulate faster on the upper part of the freezer
due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened. Remove food
and leave the door open when defrosting the freezer.
• On
upright modelswith
a defrost drain (Figure 1), remove the drain plug on the
inside floor of the freezer
by pulling straight out. To access the external drain
tube on models with a base panel, first remove the two screws from the base
panel.
Locate the drain tube near the left center under the freezer.
Place a
shallow
pan under the drain tube. Defrost
water will drain out. Check
pan
occasionally so water does not overflow. Replace the drain plug when defrosting
and cleaning are completed.
If the drain is left open, warm air may enter the
freezer.
• On
chest models
with a defrost drain, place a shallow pan beneath the drain
outlet (Figure 2). A one half inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the
freezer directly into a floordrain
(Figure 3). If your model is notequipped
with an
adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware stores. Pull out the drain plug
inside the freezer, and pull off the outside defrost drain plug (Figure 4 on following
page). Defrost water will drain out. Check pan occasionally
so water does not
overflow.
Replace the drain plugs when defrosting is completed.
