Remove Interior Packaging
Your appliance has been packed for shipment with all parts that could be damaged by movement securely fastened. Remove internal packing materials and any tape holding internal components in place. The owners manual is shipped inside the product in a plastic bag along with the warranty registration card, and other accessory items.

Keep your carton and packaging until your appliance has been thoroughly inspected and found to be in good condition. If there is damage, the packaging will be needed as proof of damage in transit. Afterwards please dispose of all items responsibly.


WARNING – Dispose of the plastic bags which can be a suffocation hazard.

Note to Customer
This merchandise was carefully packed and thoroughly inspected before leaving our plant. Responsibility for its safe delivery was assumed by the retailer upon acceptance of the shipment. Claims for loss or damage sustained in transit must be made to the retailer.




If the appliance was shipped, handled, or stored in other than an upright position for any period of time, allow the appliance to sit upright for a period of at least 24 hours before plugging in. This will assure oil returns to the compressor. Plugging the appliance in immediately may cause damage to internal parts.

It is important you send in your warranty registration card immediately after taking delivery of your appliance or you can register online at

The following information will be required when registering your appliance.
Service Number

WARNING – Help Prevent Tragedies
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous – even if they sit out for “just a few hours”.

If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:

  • Take off the doors or remove the drawers.
  • Leave the shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.


Select Location
The proper location will ensure peak performance of your appliance. We recommend a location where the unit will be out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. To ensure your product performs to specifications, the recommended installation location temperature range is from 55 to 100°F (13 to 38°C).

Cabinet Clearance
Ventilation is required from the bottom front of the appliance. Keep this area open and clear of any obstructions. Adjacent cabinets and counter top can be installed around the appliance as long as the front grille remains unobstructed. All Marvel Professional models with articulated hinges are intended for built-in applications only.


Front Grille
Do not obstruct the front grille. The openings within the front grille allow air to flow through the condenser heat exchanger. Restrictions to this air flow will result in increased energy usage and loss of cooling capacity. For this reason it is important this area to not be obstructed and the grille openings kept clean. Marvel does not recommend the use of a custom made grille as air flow may be restricted.

Figure 2

Leveling Legs
Adjustable legs at the front and rear corners of the appliance should be set so the unit is firmly positioned on the floor and level from side to side and front to back. The overall height of your Marvel appliance may be adjusted higher (by turning the leveling leg out, CCW) and lower (by turning the leveling leg in, CW).

To adjust the leveling legs, place the appliance on a solid surface and protect the floor beneath the legs to avoid scratching the floor. With the assistance of another person, lean the appliance back to access the front leveling legs. Raise or lower the legs to the required dimension by turning the legs. Repeat this process for the rear by tilting the appliance forward using caution. On a level surface check the appliance for levelness and adjust accordingly.

The front grille screws may be loosened and the grille adjusted to the desired height. When adjustment is complete tighten the two front grille screws. (See Figure 2).

Electrical Shock Hazard
  • Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. They can be hazardous and can degrade product performance.
  • This appliance should not, under any circumstances, be installed to an un-grounded electrical supply.
  • Do not remove the grounding prong from the power cord. (See Figure 3).
  • Do not use an adapter. (See Figure 4).
  • Do not splash or spray water from a hose on the appliance. Doing so may cause an electrical shock, which may result in severe injury or death.

Electrical Connection
A grounded 115 volt, 15 amp dedicated circuit is required.

This product is factory equipped with a power supply cord that has a three-pronged, grounded plug. It must be plugged into a mating grounding type receptacle in accordance with the National Electrical Code and applicable local codes and ordinances (see Figure 6). If the circuit does not have a grounding type receptacle, it is the responsibility and obligation of the customer to provide the proper power supply. The third ground prong should not, under any circumstances, be cut or removed.

Figure 5


Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) are prone to nuisance tripping which will cause the appliance to shut down. GFCI’s are generally not used on circuits with power equipment that must run unattended for long periods of time, unless required to meet local building codes and ordinances.

Anti-Tip Device


If your appliance is not located under a counter top (free standing), you must use an anti-tip device installed as per these instructions. If the unit is removed from its location for any reason, make sure that the device is properly engaged with the anti-tip bracket when you push the appliance back into the original location. If the device is not properly engaged, there is a risk of the appliance tipping over, with the potential for property damage or personal injury.


If installing on a concrete floor, concrete fasteners are required, (not included with the anti-tip kit).


Any finished flooring should be protected with appropriate material to avoid damage when moving the unit.

  4. Plug your appliance into a dedicated power circuit. (Not shared with other appliances).
  5. When initially loading your new product, or whenever large quantities of warm contents are placed within refrigerated storage compartment, minimize door openings for the next 12 hours to allow contents to pull down to compartment set temperature.
  6. Maintaining a relatively full storage compartment will require less appliance run time than an empty compartment.
  7. Ensure door closing is not obstructed by contents stored in your appliance.
  8. Allow hot items to reach room temperature before placing in product.
  9. Minimize door openings and duration of door openings.
  10. Use the warmest temperature control set temperature that meets your personal preference and provides the proper storage for your stored contents.
  11. When on vacation or away from home for extended periods, set the appliance to warmest acceptable temperature for the stored contents.
  12. Set the control to the “off” position if cleaning the appliance requires the door to be open for an extended period of time.
  13. For wine storage products:
    When serving temperatures are not required, return the compartment(s) set temperature to the ideal red and white wine long term storage temperature of 13°C / 55°F.
