The RTD1900 was designed to operate on a nominal 115 volt, 15 amp, 60 cycle line. This appliance required a separate, grounded circuit that services this item alone; an extension cord should not have been used to power it.
The base of the Maytag RTD1900 featured a base grille for the allowance of free flow air. The RTD1900 also came with front and back rollers for ease of movement and cleaning. This unit did not need to be locked into place; however, if the owner desired it, it could have been locked by utilizing its locking feet.
The freezer of the RTD1900 was located at the top of the unit. It came with two adjustable freezer shelves, an ice bin, four twist ice cube trays, two freezer door bins and a freezer light. There was also one 'keeper' for a door bin; 'keepers' helped to secure items in place to prevent movement or spillage while opening or closing the unit.
The interior of the main refrigerator unit featured upfront lighting and a number of storage areas. There were three regular glass shelves, a meat and cheese drawer, two vari crispers (used to control the moisture levels for optimum fruit and vegetable storage), a crisper shelf and a one-bottle wine rack. On the interior of the door were two covered dairy compartments, four adjustable door bins, one keeper for an adjustable bin and one egg cradle for one of the adjustable bins as well. Select RTD1900 models also offered a one-gallon door storage.
The temperature of the RTD1900 refrigerator was to be initially set at 5 on the 1-9 point settings. The freezer portion ranged from A to I and was to be set initially at E. The temperature could then be adjusted to suit the owner's needs and preferences but should have only be altered one setting at a time. The 1900 also had an energy saver switch to help prevent moisture from forming on the exterior of the unit. The upfront controls and energy saver switch were located at the top and in the center of the main refrigerator area.
