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:
l
Slight Hum, Soft Hiss:
Your refrigerator
l
Clicking
Sounds:
The defrost timer makes a definite click when the refrigerator
also makes a sound when the refrigerator starts
l
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
w 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 $ll’ 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 electricity to set the refrigerator and
freezer to temperatures
colder than they need to
be. rf 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.

Is the condenser, behind the refrigerator, free of dust
and lint?
On hot days, or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs longer
If the door has been opened a lot, the motor will run
longer to cool down the interior.
Remember:
Motor running trme 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 CI frozen food
compartment.
All this means better refrigeration and
may require more running time than your old one.
