Setting the control...
The Temperature Control for the refrigerator and
freezer is in the refrigerator in the top right hand
corner. When the refrigerator is plugged in for the
first time:
l
Give the refrigerator
time to cool down
completely before adding food. (This may take
several hours.]
This setting should be about right for normal
household refrigerator usage.
Set the Temperature
Control to 3.
L
The control will be set about right when milk or
juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream
is firm.
1. Use the “SAVES
POWER” setting
when humidity
is
low.
2. Use the “REDUCES
EXTERIOR MOISTURE” setting
if
moisture forms on
the outside of the
refrigerator.
Power Saving Control...
The Power Saving Control on the Control Console operates electric heaters around the door
openings. These heaters help keep moisture from
forming on the outside of the refrigerator.
Changing the light bulbs...
1. Reach behind the control console to find bulbs.
2. Remove bulb.
3. Replace with a 40-watt appliance bulb.
Adjusting the refrigerator shelves...
To remove fhe shelf:

Running 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.

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
l
l
l
l
Go ahead and fill up the refrigerator, but don’t
overcrowd it so air movement is blocked.
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 SAVESPOWER
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
The refrigerator section defrosts automatically.
The freezer section needs defrosting from time to
time. Both sections should be cleaned about once
a month to help prevent odors from building up. Of
course, spills should be wlped up right away.
To clean your refrigerator, turn the Temperature
Control to “OFF,” unplug it, take out all removable
parts, and clean it according
to the following
directions and chart.
There is a cold plate on the back wall at the top
of the refrlgerator section, When the refrigerator
motor runs, frost collects on the cold plate. When
the motor turns off, the frost melts.
Water from this
melted frost drips
into a drain trough
just below the cold
plate. Then it runs
down the back wall
and through the
drain just above
the crisper.
The
drain leads to a defrost water pan on
the top of the refrigerator
motor.

Food storage guide
STORING FRESH FOOD
Cured or Smoked Meat and Cold Cuts. Ham,
bacon, sausage, cold cuts, etc., keep best in original 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
on poultry, as purchased, may be used for storage.
There is a right way to package and store
refrigerated or frozen foods. To keep foods fresher,
longer, take the time to study these recommended
steps.
leafy Vegetables...Remove
store wrapping
and trim or tear off bruised and discolored areas.
Wash in cold water and drain. Place in plastic bag
or plastic container and store in crisper. Cold, moist
air helps keep leafy vegetables fresh and crisp.
Vegetables with Skins (carrots, peppers)...Store
in crisper, plastic bags or plastic container.
Frult...Wash, let dry and store in refrigerator in
plastic bags or crisper. Do not wash or hull berries
until they are ready to use. Sort and keep berries in
their store container in a crisper, or store in a
loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.
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 hints and time limits.
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 paperand re-wrap in aluminum
foil for storing it unfrozen.
Cooked Meat. Wrap or cover cooked meat with
plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Store immediately.
NOTE: Fresh fish and shellfish should be used the
same day as purchased.
Eggs...Store without washing in the original carton
or use the egg nest in the door.
Mllk...Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place
milk on interior shelf.
Beverages...Wipe
bottles and cans. Store on a
door shelf or inside the refrigerator.
Butter...Keep opened butter in covered dish or in
the Butter Compartment. When storing an extra
supply, wrap in freezer packaging and freeze.
Cheese...Store in original wrapping until you are
ready to use it. Once opened, rewrap tightly in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Condiments...Store small jars and bottles (catsup,
mustard, jelly, olives] on door shelves where they
are easy to reach.
Lettovers...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.

FREEZING & STORING
FROZEN FOODS
The freezer section is designed for storage of
commercially frozen foods and for freezing foods
at home.
Packaglng - 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
canning/freezing
jars, heavy-duty aluminum foil, plastic-coated paper and nonpermeable plastic wraps (made from
a Saran film] are recommended.
NOTE: Heatsealed bolllng bags are easy to use and can be
used by themselves or as carton liners.
Seallng - When sealing foods in bags squeeze
out the alr [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.
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 twice. Finish package and tape
closed. NOTE: Wlth unboned meats, pad sharp
edges wlth extra wrap or use stockinette to protect the wrap tfom punctures.
IO
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.
Freezlng 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 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.
11
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 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.
FOODSTORAGECHART
if electricity goes off
Call the power company. Ask how long power
will be off.
1. If service is to be interrupted 24 hours or less,
keep both doors closed. This will help frozen
foods to stay frozen.
2. If service is to be interrupted longer than 24
hours:
(a) Remove all frozen food and store in a
frozen food locker. Or...
(b) Place 2 Ibs (0.9 kg] of dry ice in freezer for
every cu. ft. of freezer space. This will keep
frozen foods for 2 to 4 days. Wear gloves to
protect your hands from dry ice burns.
(c] If neither food locker storage nor dry ice is
available, use or can perishable food at
once.
3. A full freezer will stay cold longer than a partly
filled one. A freezer full of meat will stay cold
longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If
food contains ice crystals, it may be safely
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may
be affected. Use refrozen foods quickly. If the
condition of the food is poor or you have any
suspicions, it is wise to dispose of it.
Vacation
Short vacations...
Moving...
No need to shut off the refrigerator if you will be
away for less than four weeks. Use up perishables;
freeze other items.
Remove all food. Pack frozen foods in dry ice.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it thoroughly.
Remove everything that comes out. Wrap all
parts well and tape them together so they don’t
shift and rattle.
Screw in the ievelling legs; tape the doors shut;
tape the electric cord to the cabinet. When you
get to your new home, put everything back and
refer to page 4.
Long vacations...
Remove all the food if you are going for a month
or more.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it...rinse well
and dry. Tape rubber or wood blocks to both
doorskeeping
them open far enough for air to
get in. This will keep odor and mold from building
up.

If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these five steps:
l. 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
circuit breaker box?
l Is the Temperature
Control turned on?
if there is a raffling or jingling noise, or other
unfamiliar sound:
l Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator
making noise when the refrigerator is running?
if there is water in the defrost pan:
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?
and talk with one of our trained Consultants. The
Consultants can instruct you in how to obtain satisfactory operation from your appliance or, if service is necessary, recommend a qualified service
company in your area.
3.
If you need service?..
Whirlpool has a nationwide network of franchised TECH-CARE@
service companies. TECH-CARE
service technicians are trained to
fulfill the product warranty and
provide after-warranty service, anywhere in the
United States. To locate TECH-CAREservice in your
area, call our COOL-LINE service assistance telephone number (see Step 2) or look in your telephone directory Yellow Pages under:
l
if the light does not work:
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.)
l
if a bulb is burned out:
l See instructions for changing
the light bulb on
page 5. Use appliance bulbs only.
if the motor seems to run too much:
l Is the condenser,
behind the refrigerator, free
from 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 largerthan
your old one so it has more space to be cooled.
It also has a regular freezer instead of a frozen
food compartment.
Ail this means better
refrigeration and may require more running
time than your old one.
