few things you will want to know:
l The ON/OFF
lever ISa wire signal arm.
Down., .for making ice automatically,
Up...toshut off the ice maker.
l Shake
the brn occasionally
to keep cubes separated, and to obtain increased storage capacity.
l It is normal
for ice crescents to be attached
by a
corner. They will break apart easily.
l
l
You will hear water running when Ice maker IS
working. You’ll hear ice fall Into the bin. Don’t let
these sounds bother you.
The ice maker will not operate until the freezer is
cold enough to make ice. This can take overnight.
Because of new plumbrng
connectrons.
the frrst
ice may be drscolored or off-flavored
Discard the
first few botches of ice.
If ice is not being made fast enough and more ice
is needed, turn the Temperature control to a higher
number. Wait a day and, if necessary, turn the Air
Control to a higher number.
If you remove the Ice bin, raise the srgnal arm to
shut off the ice maker. When you return the brn,
push it all the way in and lower the arm to the ON
posrtion.
If cubes ore stored too long, they may develop on
off-flavor ..lrke stale water. Throw them away. They
will be replaced.
Cubes In the Ice bin can also
become smaller by evaporation
The ice maker water supply should not be SOW
ened water. The chemicals could damage the ice
maker molds.
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 following chart describes the kinds of sounds that might be new
to you. and what may be makrng them

Energy saving tips.. .
You con help your refrigerator use less electricity.
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cobinet 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.
l
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 ore
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 is designed for storage of comfrozen foods and for freezrng foods at
home.
merclallv
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 vapors in or
out. Packaging done in any other way could cause
food odor and taste transfer
throughout
the
refrigerator
Rigid polyethylene
(plastic) containers with tightfitting lids, straight-sided
canning/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.
Sealing-When
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
Inside transparent bags; use self-adhesive
label on
outside of opaque ones.
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.
DO NOT USE:
Bread wrappers
l Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l Containers
without tight lids
l Waxed
paper
l Wax-coated
freezer wrap
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
None of these are totally moisture, air or vapor
could
proof. The use of these wrappings
l
cause food odor and taste transfer.
5
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, blemrsh-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 freezrng.
11
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
time10 to15 minutes to allow for additional cooking
during reheating. Omit seasonrngs and part of the
Irqurd. 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 dash in the freezer, line it with forl.
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 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.
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...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 wfthin 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:
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:
Is the power supply cord plugged into a live circuit
with the proper voltage? [See page 4.)
Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit
breaker box?
Is the Temperature Control turned ON?
l
l
l
If there is a mttling or jingling
familtar sounds:
noise, or other un-
Is something on top or behind the refrigerator making noise when the refrigerator is running?
New features on your new refrigerator make new
sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, defrost
water draining into the defrost pan,
l
l
If your ice maker will not operate:
l
l
l
Has the freezer had enough time to get cold? With a
new refrigerator, this might take overnight.
Is the signal arm ON. .in the down position?
Is the water valve turned on? 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
l
Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit
breaker box?
Is the power supply cord plugged into a live circuit
with the proper voltage? (See page 4.)
If a bulb is burned out:

7.
If the motor seems to run too much:
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, setting 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.
