1. Connect power cord. The refrigerator will begin operation immediately.
Refrigerators may be equipped with an energy-saving fan delay control to prevent the interior
fans from operating until the evaporator coil becomes chilled. Therefore, on initial start-up,
the fans will not turn on immediately. Allow sufficient time for the evaporator coil to reach its
operating temperature (approximately 20-minutes).
2. Monitor for normal operation. All refrigerators must be given sufficient time to reach normal operating
temperature before placing any food inside. Refrigerators are designed to maintain an ideal cabinet
temperature of 380F to 400F (3.30C to 4.40C) and approximately 2-hours of operation are required to
reach this temperature.
Never overload top shelf with products so as to block or restrict cabinet airflow. Doing so will
result in poor performance, decrease efficiency and possible need for service to de-ice
3. Utilize the reach-in refrigerators as "break out boxes" to store the day's use of refrigerated food
products. The reach-in refrigerators should be emptied and cleaned at the end of each workday.
