Sounds you may hear.. .
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn’t.
Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned
about
them. Don’t be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like
the floor, walls and cabinets can make the sounds seem louder.
The followrng chart describes the kinds of sounds that might be new
to you. and.what may be makrng them.
Possible Sounds:
Slight Hum, Soft Hiss:
Probable
Causes:
Your refrigerator has two fans; you may hear the fan motors and moving air.
0 Clicking
Sounds:
The defrost timer makes a definite click when the refriaerator
also makes a sound when the refrigerator starts.

Water Sounds:
When the refrigerator stops running, you may hear gurgling in the tubing for a
few minutes after it stops. You may also hear defrost water running Into the
defrost water pan.
l
Ice Maker
If your refrigerator has an Ice maker, you may hear buzzing (from the water
valve), trickling water and the clatter of ice dumped into the bin
l
Running
Sounds:
Sounds:
Your refrrgerator has a high-efficiency
compressor and motor. It will run longer
than older designs. It may even seem to run most of the time.
Energy saving tips...
You can help Your refrigerator use less electricity
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cabinet to be sure of a good seal.
l Clean
the condenser coil regularly.
l Open
the door as few times as possible. Think
about what you need before you open the door.
Get everything out at one time. Keep foods organized so You won‘t have to search for what You
want. Close door as soon as food is removed.
l Go ahead
and fill up the refrigerator, but don’t
overcrowd it so air movement is blocked.
It is a waste of electricity to set the refrigerator and
freezer to temperatures
colder than they need to
be If ice cream is firm in the freezer and drinks are
as cold as Your family likes them, that’s cold
enough.
Keep the Power Saving Control on OFF unless
moisture forms on the refrigerator exterior.
Make sure your refrigerator is not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace,
radiator, or In direct sunlight.

FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
FOODS

The freezer section ISdesrgned for storage of commerctally
frozen foods and for freezrng foods at
home
Packaging-The
secret of successful freezing IS
in the packaging.
The wrap you use must be air,
morsture and vapor proof. The way you close and
seal the package
must not allow air, moisture or
vapors in or out.
Rigid polyethylene
[plastic] containers with trghtfitting lids, straight-sided
canning I freezing jars,
heavy-duty aluminum foil, plastic-coated
paper and
non-permeable
plastic wraps (such as Saran) are
recommended.
Note Heat-sealed boiling bags are
easy to use and can be used by themselves or as
carton liners
SealingWhen sealing foods in bags squeeze
out the air (liquids need headspace
to allow for
expansion ) Twist the top and turn It back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tail Put the label
tnsrde transparent bags, use self-adhesive
label on
outside of opaque ones.

Air-tight wrapping calls for “drugstore” wrap. Cut
the sheet about one-third longer than the distance
around the food Bring the ends together and fold in
(toward the food) at least twice to seal out air. Crease
ends close to food, press air from package
Fold tips
Freezing Fruits ~ Select ripe, blemish-free fruits.
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to
3 quarts (liters) at a time and drain. Fruit that stands
in water may lose food value and become, soggy.
Sort, peel, trim, pit and slrce as needed.
Pack in rigid wide-mouthed
containers or other
recommended
material Leave head space to allow liquids to expand during freezing
Freezing Vegetables
- Freeze only fresh hrghquality vegetables
picked when barely mature
For best results, freeze no more than 2 to 3 hours
after prckrng Wash In cold water, sort and cut tnto
appropriate
sizes. Blanch or scald Pack in recommended container and freeze

foods as you would for the table; shorten cooking
time10 to15 minutes toallow for additional cooking
durrng reheating. Omrt seasonings and part of the
lrqurd Plan to add them at reheating time Potatoes should also be added to soup and stew at
heating time. Add crumb and cheese toppings at

Cool as rapidly as possible and freeze at once.
Liqurd or semi-liquid dishes may be frozen in recommended
containers with heod-space
Casseroles and other more solid foods may be frozen in
the baking container
If you don’t want to leave
your casserole dish In the freezer, line It with foil
Bake, cool, freeze, lift out the foil package,
bag It

Freezing Meats-The
meat you thaw can only
be as good as the meat you freeze “Drugstore”
wrap In meal-size packages
Flat cuts or patties
should be wrapped
indrvrdually or In layers separated by a double thickness of freezer wrap
Make sure store wrappings are moisture and vapor proof If not, re-wrap meats with one of the
wraps recommended
under “Packaging”.
Freezing Baked Goods ~ Wrap baked breads
In recommended
materrol Thaw in wrapping
Unbaked yeast breads can be frozen after the first
rising. Punch down, wrap and freeze.
Bake cookies as usual Cool and freeze on trays.
then pack In recommended
freezer bags or cartons. Unbaked cookies may be dropped,

Refrigerator-type
cookies can be wrapped

Thaw only enough to slice when ready to bake.
Frutt pies are best frozen unbaked. Bake without
thawing.
Bake pecan
and srmrlar pies before
freezing.. rich fillings do not freeze solid. Cut steam
vents In top crusts when ready to bake.
IMPORTANT: Do not expect
your
freezer
to quick-freeze
any large
quantity
of food. Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will
freeze within 24 hours. [No more than
2 to 3 pounds of fresh meat or 3 to 4
pounds of vegetables
per cubic foot
of freezer
space.) leave
enough
space
for air to circulate
around
packages.
Be careful
to leave
enough room at the front so the door
can close tightly.

If you need service or
assistance, we suggest
you follow these four steps:
I.
Before calling
for assistance..
.
Performance problems often result from little things
You can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind
If your refrigerator
will not operate:
Is the electric cord plugged in?
l Is a fuse blown
or a circutt breaker tripped7
l Is the Temperature
Control turned ON?
If there is a rattling
or jingling
nolse, or other
unfamiltar
sounds:
l Issomething
on top or behrnd the refrrgerator making noise when the refrigerator IS running?
l New features
on your new refrigerator make new
sounds You may be hearing arr flowing from the
fans, trmer clrcks for the defrostrng cycle, defrost
water draining into the defrost pan
If your ice maker will not operate:
l Has the freezer had enough
time to get cold? Wrth
a new refrigerator, this might take overnrght
l Is the signal
arm ON. ,. in the down positron?
l Is the water valve turned
on3 Is water getting to the
ice maker?
If there is water in the defrost pan:
l In hot, muggy
weather, this IS normal The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refngerator is level
so the pan doesn’t overflow
If the light doesn’t work:
l Check
fuses and circuit breakers
Make sure it’s
plugged In.
If a bulb is burned out:
l See instructrons
for changing
light bulbs on page
7. Use appliance
bulbs only
If the motor seems to run too much:
l Is the condenser,
behrnd the base grille, free of
dust and lint?
l On hot days,
or if the room IS warm, the motor
naturally runs longer.
l If the door
has been opened a lot, or If a large
amount of food has been put In, the motor WIII run
longer to cool down the rnterlor
l
Remember:
Motor running time depends on dtfferenf things: number of door openings, amount of
food stored, temperature
of the room, setting of the
controls
And, your new refrrgerator may be larger than
your old one so It has more space to be cooled It
also has a regular freezer Instead of a frozen food
compartment.
All this means better refrigeration and
may require more running time than your old one
