Sounds:
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 making them.
Probable
Causes:
You may hear the refrigerator’s

stops running. It
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.
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.
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.
l
l
l
l
It is a waste of electrtcrty 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 LESS
ENERGY 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 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 followrng
directions.

The freezer section is designed for storage of cornmercrclly
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 orvapor in or
out. Packaging done in any other way could cause
food odor and taste transfer throughout
the refrigerator and drying of frozen food.
Rigrd polyethylene
[plastic) contarners 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 Irners.
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
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 rn
[toward the food) at least twice to seal out air. Crease
ends close to food, press err from package.
Fold tips
over twrce. Finish package
and tape closed NOTt
Wrth unboned meats, pad sharp edges wrth extr
wrap or use stockinette
to protect the wrap fror
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.

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

Cooked
Food - Prepare
cooked
foods as you would for the table; shorten cooking
time10 to15 minutes toallow for additional cooking
during reheating. Omit seasonings and part of the
liquid. Plan to odd 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 VCIpor 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

Thaw only enough to slice when ready to bake.
Fruit pies are best frozen unbaked. Bake without

QUESTIONS?
.call your
COOL-LINE”
service
assistance
telephone
number
(page 15).
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 frx yourself without tools of any krnd
If your refrigerator
will not operate:
Is the electric cord plugged in7
l Is a fuse blown
or a crrcurt breaker trapped?
l Is the Refrrgerator
Control turned ON?
l
If there is a rattling
or jingling
noise, or other
unfamiliar
sounds:
l Is something
on top or behrnd the refrigerator making noise when the refrigerator IS runnrng’
l New features
on your new refrigerator make new
sounds You may be hearing air flowrng from the
fans, timer clicks 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? With
a new refrigerator, this mrght take overnight.
l Is the signal
arm ON.. in the down posItion
l 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 light doesn’t work:
l Check
fuses and circuit breakers. Make sure it’s
plugged in.
If a bulb is burned out:
l See instructions
for changing
light bulbs on page
6 Use appliance
bulbs only
If the motor seems to run too much:
l Are the condenser
coils 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
compartment.
All this means better refrrgeratron and
may require more running time than your old one.
