    1) If the unit has recently been transported please let unit stand still for a minimum of 24 hours before plugging it in.

    2) Make sure that the unit drops down to desired temperature before loading the unit with product.

    3) Make sure that there is proper ventilation around the unit in the area where it will operate.

    CABINET LOCATION GUIDELINES

    1) Install the unit on strong and leveled surfaces

                 -unit may make unpleasant noises if surface is uneven

                 -unit may malfunction if surface is uneven

    2) Install the unit in an indoor, well-ventilated area

               -unit performs more efficiently in a well-ventilated area

                 -make sure to maintain a clearance of 24" above the unit

                 -outdoor use may cause decreased efficiency and damage to the unit

    3) Avoid installation in a high humidity and/or dusty area

                 -humidity could cause unit to rust and decrease efficiency of the unit

                 -dust collected on condenser coil will cause unit to malfunction. Clean the condenser at least

                 once a month with a brush or clean cloth

                 -malfunction due to dirty condenser will void warranty

    4) Select a location away from heat and moisture-generating equipment

                 -high ambient temperatures will cause the compressor to overwork, leading to higher energy bills     and gradual breakdown of the unit

                 -malfunction due to high ambient temperature will void warranty

     

    ELECTRICAL

    Please ensure that the required voltage of the compressor is being supplied at all times. Low or high voltage can detrimentally affect the refrigeration unit and thereby void its warranty.

    All units should be plugged into a grounded and properly-sized electrical outlet with appropriate

    overcurrent protection. Please refer to the electrical requirements on the unit serial tag located inside the unit. Please make sure that your unit has its own dedicated outlet. Do not use an extension cord.

    REGULAR MAINTENANCE

     CLEANING THE CONDENSER COIL

    For efficient operation, it is important that the condenser surface be kept free of dust, dirt, and lint.

    Condensers accumulate dirt and require cleaning every 30 days. If you keep the condenser clean, you will minimize your service expense and lower your electrical costs.

     

    A dirty Condenser can result in NON-WARRANTEED part & compressor failures, product loss, and lost Sales. The Condenser looks like a group of vertical fins. You need to be able to see through the condenser for the unit to function at maximum capacity. Do not place filter material in front of condensing coil. This material blocks air-flow to the coil similar to having a dirty coil.

     

     HOW TO CLEAN THE CONDENSER:

     

    1. Disconnect the electrical power to the unit. 

    2. Remove the louvered grill.                                                      

    3. Vacuum or brush the dirt, lint, or debris from the finned condenser coil.

    4. If you have significant dirt build up you can blow out the condenser with compressed air.

    5. When finished be sure to replace the louvered grill. The grill protects the condenser.

    6. Reconnect the electrical power to the unit.

     CLEANING THE FAN BLADES AND MOTOR

    If necessary, clean the fan blades and motor with a soft cloth. If it is necessary to wash the fan blades, cover the fan motor to prevent moisture damage.

     CLEANING THE INTERIOR OF UNIT

    When cleaning the cabinet interior, use a solvent of warm water and mild soap. Do not use steel wool, caustic soap, abrasive cleaners, or bleach that may damage the stainless steel surface.

    Wash door gaskets on a regular basis, preferably weekly. Simply remove door gasket from the frame of the door, soak in warm water and soap for thirty (30) minutes, dry with soft cloth, and replace. Check door gaskets for proper seal after they are replaced.

    Periodically remove the shelves and pilasters from the unit and clean them with mild soap and warm water. To remove the pilasters, first remove the shelves and shelf clips. Then, unscrew the pilaster with a phillips screwdriver and remove.

     

    WARNING

    Disconnect power cord before cleaning any parts of the unit.
