They will break apart easily. LOWER SIGNAL ARM TO START IT l You will hear water running when ice maker IS working. You’ll hear ice fall into the hln Don’t let these sounds bother you To remove ice: 1. Hold tray at both ends. 2. Twist slightly. The Ice maker will not operate until the freezer IS cold enough to make ice. This can take overnight l Because of new plumbing connectrons, the first ice may be discolored or off-flavored Discard the first few batches of ice. l If Ice is not being made fast enough and more Ice IS needed, turn the Refrigerator Control toward a higher number. Wait a day and, if necessary. turn the Freezer Control toward A. l If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to shut off the ice maker When you return the bin, push it all the way in and lowerthe arm to the ON posrtion . II cubes are stored too long, they may develop an off-flavor. .like stale water. Throw them away. They will be replaced. Cubes in the ice bin can also become smaller by evaporation l Good water quality is important for good ice qualrty It is not recommended that the ice maker be connected to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals such as salt from a malfuncttonrng softener can damage the ice maker mold and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided, then it is important that the water softener be well maintained and operating properly l 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 aboutthem. 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 following chart describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you, and what may be making them. Possible l l l Probable Causes: Slight Hum, Sofi Hiss: You may hear the refrigerator’s Clicking Sounds: The thermostat makes a definite click when the refrigeratorstops running. It also makes a sound when the refrigerator starts. The defrost timer will click when the defrost cycle starts and stops. . Water l Sounds: or Snapping fan motor and moving air. 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. Ice Maker Sounds: - trickling water -thud [clatter of ice) 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. Running 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. Sounds: Energy saving tips... You can help your refrigerator use less electricity l 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. Cleaning your refrigerator Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically. But both should be cleaned about once a month to help prevent odors from building up. Of course, spills should be wiped up right away. To clean your refrigerator turn the Refrigerator Control to OFF, unplug it, take out all removable parts and clean it according to the following directions. l l l 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 CONSUMES LESSENERGY unless moisture forms on 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. Cleaning chart...

Leftovers...Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil to keep food from drying out and transferring food odors. Plastic containers with tight lids are fine, too. STORING FROZEN FOOD *e5qg!gT The freezer section is designed for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing food 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 DO NOT USE: vapor in or out. Packaging done in any other way l Bread wrappers could cause food odor and taste transfer throughl Non-polyethylene plastic containers out the refrigerator and drying of frozen food. l Containers without tight lids Rigid polyethylene (plastic) containers with l Waxed paper tightfitting lids, straight-sided canning/freezing jars, heavy-duty aluminum foil, plastic-coated l Waxed-coated freezer wrap paper and nonpermeable plastic wraps (made * Thin, semi-permeable wrap from a Saran film] are recommended. NOTE: HeatNone of these are totally moisture, air or vapor sealed boiling bags are easy to use and can be proof. The use of these wrappings could used by themselves or as carton liners. cause food odor and taste transfer and drySealing - When sealing food in bags, squeeze ing of frozen food. 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 inside transparent baas; use self-adhesive label on outside of opaque &es Air-tightwrapping 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 twice. Finish package and tape closed. NOTE: With unboned meats, pad sharp edges with extra wrap or use stockinette to protect the wrap from punctures. 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 slice 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 highquality vegetables picked when barely mature. For best results, freeze no more than 2 to 3 hours after picking. Wash in cold water, sort and cut into appropriate sizes. Blanch or scald. Pack in recommended 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 time 10 to 15 minutes to allow for additional cooking during reheating. Omit seasonings and part of the liquid. 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 heating time. Cool as rapidly as 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 want to leave your casserole dish in the freezer, line it with foil. Bake, cool, freeze, lift out the foil package, bag it and return to freezer. 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 individually 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 material. Thaw in wrapping. Unbaked yeast breads can be frozen afterthe 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, molded or rolled and frozen on cookie trays. Store in bag or carton; bake without thawing. Refrigerator-type cookies can be wrapped and frozen in roll form. Thaw only enough to slice when ready to bake. Fruit pies are best frozen unbaked. Bake without thawing. Bake pecan and similar pies before freezing...rrch fillings do not freeze solid. Cut steam vents in top crusts when ready to bake. 12 IMPORTANT: Do not expect your freezer to quickfreeze 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 food per cubic toot of freezer space.) leave enough space tor air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave enough room at the front so the door can close tightly.
