Instructions for the Installation, Operation and Maintenance
Refrigerator BR 16BSSC
Your new refrigerated cabinet represents the finest in engineering design, quality of material and craftsmanship
effort and, with a minimum of your effort, will provide many years of trouble-free services. Observe carefully and practice
faithfully the few, simple instructions prepared by our engineers to insure top performance with minimum service.
GENERAL INFORMATION (All Models)
SELECTING LOCATION - IMPORTANT!
Locate the cabinet, allowing at least 4" of space between the back of the cabinet and wall for condenser discharge.
Level the cabinet and make certain that shim material be used between the base and any portion of the floor that the
base is not contacting. Proper door gasket seal, door alignment and defrost water elimination are assured when the
cabinet is installed on a firm, level supporting surface. Follow by applying a smooth continuous bead of construction
sealant at the angle formed by the cabinet base and the building floor.
Examine the door gasket seal by closing the door(s) on a piece of light paper at intervals of approximately 6" around
the perimeter of each door. When the seal is proper, a substantial drag should be felt when attempting to remove the
paper with the door completely closed. Each hinge, except the lift-off type, is provided with slotted mounting holes in
the wing that is secured to the door. This feature applies or removes gasket pressure on the hinge side of the door.
Adjustment of gasket pressure on the lock side of the door is accomplished by adjusting the strike assembly. Each
upright freezer or refrigerator door is also fitted with diagonal adjustment straps with the adjustment screws located on
the lower edge of the door. This feature is designed expressly for the application of gasket pressure to the two
corners of the door opposite the hinges. To apply additional pressure to the lower corner, for instance, tighten the
adjustment screw at that corner and loosen the other one accordingly. If, for any reason, it becomes necessary to
remove the complete door assembly, remove the screws that secure the hinge to the cabinet exterior. In doing so,
the gasket pressure originally applied will not be disturbed.
Electrical Connections: Check the proposed outlet and make certain that the voltage, phase and current carrying
capacity of the circuit from the panel corresponds to the requirements of the cabinet. Do Not Use An Extension
Cord! NOTE: On models that do not contain a plug-in service cord, conduit must be affixed to the junction
box provided. A manual disconnect switch must be installed in a convenient location and wired in
accordance with existing codes.
Interior Accessories: The interior of your cabinet is equipped with heavy wire shelves that can be adjusted very
readily to suit your particular requirements. The adjustment slots in the shelf standards are numbered in sequence to
assist you in positioning your shelves. Each shelf is heavily plated and lacquered for long life and easy cleaning.
Stainless Steel: Light but frequent cleaning, usually with no more than a damp cloth, then dry with a soft cloth.
To eliminate fingerprints, an application of commercial glass cleaner or automobile wax wiped on with a soft cloth till a thin
film remains will do a fine job.
Interior Surfaces: From a sanitation standpoint, it is important that the interior of your cabinet be cleaned
periodically beginning with the initial installation. Spillage and poorly wrapped packages will tend to cause objectionable
odors and, when this condition occurs, cleaning the entire interior with a solution of baking soda and warm water will
impart a clean, sweet smell to the storage area. Wipe thoroughly dry after cleaning.
Periodically remove the dirt, dust and lint that will tend to accumulate on the condenser of the condensing unit.
This obstruction will materially affect the flow of cool air through
