Please follow the installation steps below to ensure your appliance is installed and operates correctly.


  • To ensure that the appliance is not accidently switched off, connect your refrigerator to its own isolating switch. Do not plug in any other appliance at this isolating switch.
  • For power requirements, please refer to the information on the serial plate. This is located at the front right-hand side of the drawer when open.
  • It is essential that the appliance is properly grounded (earthed).
  • Connect the appliance to the electrical supply (115 VAC, 60 Hz) with the fitted plug and lead. Follow the National Electrical Code and all local codes and ordinances when installing this product.
Warning: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) may trip during normal operation of your refrigerator and interrupt the power supply. The use of a GFCI is not recommended with this product.


  • Your refrigerator should not be located in direct sunlight or next to any heat generating appliance such as a cooktop, oven or dishwasher.
  • Your product is fitted with front and rear rollers designed for moving the product in forwards and backwards direction.
  • Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction as this may damage the rollers or the floor covering/surface.
