It is not recommended
that the ice maker be connected to a softened water supply. Water softener

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.

to you, and what may be making them.

Sounds:
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.
Your refrigerator has a high-efficiency
compressor and motor. It will run longer
than older designs. It may even seem to run most of the time.

Meat*
Meat is perishable and expensive...you
won’t want to waste an ounce of it through careless
handling. The following list and chart give you packaging hunts and time limits, Store meat In the meat
pan.
Fresh, Prepackaged
Meat. Store fresh meat in
the store wrapping.
Vacuum packaged
meat can
be frozen for as long as one month if the seal IS not
broken. If you want to keep it frozen longer, you
should wrap it with special freezer wrapping material.
Fresh Meat, Not Prepackaged.
Remove the
market wrapping paper and re-wrap in aluminum foil
for storing it unfrozen.
Cooked
Meat. Wrap or cover cooked meat with
plastic wrap or aluminum foil, Store immediately.
Cured or Smoked Meat and Cold Cuts. Ham,
bacon, sausage, cold cuts, etc., keep best in orlginal wrappings.
Once opened,
tightly re-wrap in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Canned
Ham. Store in refrigerator unless the label says it’s okay to store on the shelf. Do not freeze.
Fresh Poultry...Wrap
in plastic wrap. The plastic
wrap on poultry, as purchased,
may be used for
storage.

Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or

lids are fine, too.
FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
FOODS
The freezer section ISdesrgned for storage of commercrclly
frozen foods and for freezing foods at
home.
Packaging
-The secret of successful freezing is in
the packaging.
The wrap you use must be air,
moisture and vapor proof. The way you close and seal
the package must not allow air, moisture or vapor in or
out. Packaging done in any other way could cause
food odor and taste transfer throughout
the refrigerator and drying of frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene
(plastic) containers with tightfitting lids, straight-sided
cannrng/freezrng
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.) Twrst the top and turn it back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tall. Put the label
Inside 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
over twrce Finish package
and tape closed NOTE
Wtth unboned meats, pad sharp edges with extra
wrap or use stockrnette to protect the wrap from
punctures.
DO NOT USE:
Bread wrappers
l Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l Containers
without tight lids
l Waxed
paper
l Waxed-coated
freezer wrap
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
None of these are totally moisture, air or vapor
proof. The use of these wrappings
could
cause food odor and taste transfer and
drying of frozen food.
l
Freezing Fruits - Select ripe, blemish-free fruits.
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to
3 quarts (Inters) at a time and dram. Fruit that stands
in water may lose food value and become, soggy.
Sort, peel. tram, pit and sltce as needed.
Pack in rrgtd wide-mouthed
containers or other
recommended
material. Leave head space to ollow liquids to expand during freezing.
Freezing Vegetables
- Freeze only fresh highquality vegetables
picked when barely mature
For best results, freeze no more than 2 to 3 hours
after pickrng. Wash in cold water. sort and cut into
appropriate
sizes. Blanch or scald. Pock in recom
mended container and freeze
Do not freeze lettuce, celery, carrot sticks, potatoes or fresh tomatoes. All will become
limp or
mushy Tomatoes will collapse when thawed.
Freezing
Cooked
Food - Prepare
cooked
foods as you would for the table; shorten cooking
time10 to15 mrnutes to allow for additional cooking
during reheating, Omit seasonings and port of the
liquid. Plan to odd them at reheating time. Potatoes should also be added to soup and stew at
heating ttme. Add crumb and cheese toppings at
heating time.
Cool as rapidly OS possible and freeze at once
Liquid or semi-liquid dishes may be frozen In recommended
containers with head-space
Casseroles and other more solid foods may be frozen in
the baking container. If you don’t wont to leave
your casserole dash in the freezer, line it with foil
Bake, cool, freeze, lift out the for package.
bog it
and return to freezer.
Freezing Meats-The
meat you thaw con only
be as good as the meat you freeze. “Drugstore”
wrap in meal-size packages.
Flat cuts or potties
should be wrapped
individually
or in layers separated by a double thickness of freezer wrap.
Make sure store wrappings ore moisture and vapor proof. If not, re-wrap meats wrth one of the
wraps recommended
under “Packaging”.
Freezing Baked Goods-Wrap
baked breads
in recommended
material. Thaw in wrapping. Unbaked yeast breads con be frozen after the first
rising. Punch down, wrap and freeze.
Bake cookies as usual. Cool and freeze on trays,
then pock in recommended
freezer bogs or cartons. Unbaked cookies may be dropped,
molded
or rolled and frozen on cookie trays. Store In bog or
carton; bake without thawrng
Refrigerator-type
cookies con be wrapped
and frozen in roll form.
Thaw only enough to slice when ready to bake
Fruit pies ore best frozen unbaked. Bake without
thawing.
Bake pecan
and similar 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-treeze
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.

QUESTIONS?
. ..call your
COOL-LINE@
service
assistance
telephone
number
[page 151.
If you need service or
assistance, we suggest
you follow these four steps:
1. 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:
l Is the power
supply cord plugged into a live circuit
with the proper voltage? [See page 4.)
l Have you checked
your home’s main fuses or circutt
breaker box?
l Is the Temperature
Control turned ON?
If there is a rattling or jingling noise, or other unfamiliar
sounds:
l Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator 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, timer clicks for the defrosting 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’ With a
new refrrgerator, this might take overnight.
l Is the signal
arm ON...rn 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 refrigerator is level so
the pan doesn’t overflow.
If the lights are not working:
l Have you checked
your home’s main fuses or circuit
breaker box?
l IS the power
supply cord plugged Into a live circuit
with the proper voltage? [See page 4 )
If a bulb is burned out:
l See instructrons for changing
light bulbs on pageT.
Use appliance
bulbs only
If the motor seems to run too much:
l Is the condenser,
behind 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 will run
longer to cool down the interior.
Remember:
Motor running time depends on different things: number of door openings. amount of
food stored, temperature
of the room, sethng of the
controls
And, your new refrigerator 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 compatiment. All this means better refrigeration and may require more running time than your old one
