SAFETY & WARNINGS If you smell gas • Open Windows • Don’t touch electrical switches • Extinguish any open flame • Immediately call your gas supplier For your Safety • Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapours and liquids in the vicinity of this unit or any other appliance Warning • Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or maintenance can cause injury or property damage. Refer to this manual.
INSTALLATION For best performance at high ambient temperatures, there must be free air circulation over the cooling unit at the rear of the refrigerator. Ensure that there is a free air space above the refrigerator and that the flue (chimney) on top of the cabinet is not covered in any way. Do not place the refrigerator in a space where air circulation is restricted. Follow “clearance” instructions.
INSTALLATION • Fig. #1 - This is ideal as both top and sides are open • Fig. #2 – During hot/humid weather this confined area will become very warm. To reduce heat build-up, we recommend providing an area for two air vents to circulate the air. One placed 6” off the floor and the other at or above the appliance top. Cold air return vents with adjustable louvres/dampers, works very well.
GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS IMPORTANCE OF LEVELING A REFRIGERATOR The refrigerator must be adjusted to a vertical position in both directions. In an absorption refrigeration system, ammonia is liquefied in the finned condenser coil at the top rear of the refrigerator. The liquid ammonia then flows into the evaporator (inside the freezer section) and is exposed to circulating flow of hydrogen gas, which causes the ammonia to evaporate, creating a cold condition in the freezer.
GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 110V OPERATION 1. Ensure the electrical cord is plugged into a grounded outlet 2. Turn the selector switch G to AC position, AC power indicator F will illuminate 3. To start the refrigerator, turn the thermostat knob E to the maximum setting. 4. Adjust the thermostat knob to desired temperature setting after 8 hours of operation. CONTROLS – See Fig. #5 for a description of controls 298.5 mm A 63.
GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO USE THE REFRIGERATOR Food Storage Compartment The food storage compartment is completely closed and unventilated, which is necessary to maintain the required low temperature for food storage. The coldest areas in the refrigerator are under the cooling fins and at the bottom of the refrigerator. The warmer areas are on the upper door shelves. This should be considered when placing different types of food in the refrigerator.
GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS CLEANING Cleaning the refrigerator is usually done after it is defrosted or put into storage. To clean the interior liner of the refrigerator, use lukewarm weak soda solution. Use only warm water to clean the finned evaporator, gasket, ice trays and shelves. Never use strong chemicals or abrasives to clean these parts as the protective surfaces will be damaged. It is important to always keep the refrigerator clean. Dishwasher detergent is recommended.
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE The user should be aware of service that must be done on a regular schedule to keep the refrigerator operating properly. Installation must be by a licensed gas fitter in accordance with local codes or in the absence of local national Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z233.1 and in Canada B149.2 Propane Storage and Handling Code (latest edition). REFRIGERATOR REMOVAL and PERIODIC MAINTENANCE Before working on the refrigerator, shut off the gas supply.
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE The LP gas pressure should be checked and the main regulator readjusted if pressure is incorrect. The correct operating pressure is 11” W.C. (water column). Inspect the flue baffle, it should be clean and free of soot. Any soot formation indicates improper functioning of the burner. The flue and burner both require cleaning in the following manner: • Remove cover from the burner housing.
TROUBLESHOOTING INSTRUCTIONS & SUGGESTED SPARE PARTS REFRIGERATOR DOES NOT COOL, CHECK LIKELY CAUSES: 1. Burner orifice clogged. Clean. See section Maintenance & Service, 2. Check to ensure refrigerator is level – (left to right and front to back). 3. Restriction on airflow across cooling unit. 4. Heavy frost build-up on evaporator fins. Defrost. 5. Flue baffle not inserted properly in flue tube. 6. Improperly set thermostat. See paragraph on the thermostat.
DOOR REMOVAL & REVERSAL INSTRUCTIONS NOTE: The direction in which your refrigerator doors open (door swing) can be reversed, from left to right or right to left, by moving the door hinges from one side to the other. Reversing the door swing should be performed by a qualified person. 1. Remove top hinge cover. 2. Remove top hinge with Phillips screwdriver and lift freezer door off of center hinge and set door aside. 3. Unscrew center hinge with Phillips screwdriver. 4.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLS NOTE: Due to the nature of a gas operated absorption fridge, temperatures in the fridge compartment will drop to freezing even on the lowest setting when the ambient temperature surrounding the fridge drops to or below 60° F/ 15.0° C overnight and will freeze your food or drink products. An absorption fridge is always cooling when operating, as the ambient drops surrounding the appliance so does the temperature inside the fridge.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLS Meat • Raw meat and poultry should be wrapped securely so leakage and contamination of other foods or surfaces does not occur. FROZEN FOOD STORAGE • The freezer compartment should be kept at 8.6°F (-13°C) at a 77°F (25°C ) room ambient • A freezer operates most efficiently when it is slowly loaded to 2/3 full. PACKAGING FOODS FOR FREEZING • To minimize dehydration and quality deterioration, use aluminum foil, freezer wrap, freezer bags or airtight containers.
