Answered by Robert Flynn

To turn on a Summit refrigerator, follow these steps:

1. Plug the power cable into a wall socket: Before using the appliance, make sure it is properly connected to a power source. Locate the power cable and insert it into a nearby wall socket.

2. Check the display: When the refrigerator is initially turned on, the display may show dashes for both the refrigerator and freezer temperatures. This is normal and indicates that the appliance is not yet functioning.

3. Switch the appliance ON: To start the refrigerator, locate the power button, usually labeled as button A. Press and hold this button for approximately 3 seconds. This action will activate the appliance and initiate the cooling process.

4. Monitor the display: After turning on the refrigerator, monitor the display panel for changes. The dashes should be replaced with actual temperature readings for the refrigerator and freezer compartments. These readings will vary depending on the specific model of the Summit refrigerator.

5. Adjust the temperature settings if necessary: Once the refrigerator is turned on, you may need to adjust the temperature settings to your desired levels. Look for temperature control buttons or knobs on the display panel. Use these controls to increase or decrease the temperature as needed.

6. Allow the refrigerator to cool down: After turning on the refrigerator, it will take some time for it to reach the desired temperature. It is recommended to wait for a few hours before placing any perishable items inside the refrigerator to ensure proper cooling.

7. Regularly check and maintain the refrigerator: Once the Summit refrigerator is turned on, it is important to regularly check and maintain it for optimal performance. This includes cleaning the interior and exterior surfaces, defrosting if necessary, and ensuring proper airflow around the appliance.

By following these steps, you can effectively turn on your Summit refrigerator and start using it to keep your food fresh and chilled.
