Use the “REDUCES EXTERIOR MOISTURE” setting if moisture forms on the outside of the refrigerator. The indicator light will glow when the switch is in the “REDUCES EXTERIOR MOISTURE” position. Adjusting meat drawer temperature... Cold air flows against the meat drawer through an opening between the freezer and the refrigerator. This helps keep the meat drawer colder than the rest of the refrigerator. Set the control to let more or less cold air through.

There are a few things about your ice maker: l you will want l to know The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm. Down...for making ice automatically. Up...to shut off the ice maker. l l l ICE MAKER ON UNTIL IT IS CONNECTED TO THE WATER SUPPLY. DO NOT TURN l l LOWER SIGNAL ARM TO START IT RAISE SIGNAL ARM TO STOP ICE l The dial or lever on the side of the ice maker changes the size of the cubes. Shake the bin occasionally to keep cubes separated, and to obtain increased storage capacity. It is normal for ice crescents to be attached by a corner. They will break apart easily. 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 plumbing connections, the first ice may be discolored or off-flavored. Discard the first few batches of ice. 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 C. 7 continued on next page l 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 lower the arm to the ON position. If 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. Removing the base grille... r To remove the grille: 1. Open the doors. 2. Pull grille outwards as shown. 3. Do not remove Tech sheet fastened grille. Good water quality is important for godd ice quality. It is not recommended that the ice maker be connected to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals such as salt from a malfunctioning sof-tener 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 METALCLIPS \ SUPPORTTABS 1.

Sounds you may hear... ‘/ P =3’ \’ Possible Sounds: l Slight Hum, Sotl Hiss: l Cllcklng or Snapping Sounds: l l l Water Sounds: Ice Maker Sounds: -trickling water -thud (clatter of ice) 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. Probable Causes: You may hear the refrigerator’s fan motor and moving air. The thermostat makes a definite click when the refrigerator stops running. It also makes a sound when the refrigerator starts. The defrost timer will click when the defrost cycle starts and stops. 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. When the ice maker is running 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 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 l l l 8 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 Saver 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 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. Cleaning chart... How to clean ..

FREEZING & STORING FROZEN FOODS The freezer section is designed for storage of commercially 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 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 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. Air-tight wrapping calls for “drugstore” wrap. Cut the sheet about one-third longerthan 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. 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 l cause food odor and taste transfer and drying of frozen food. 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. Fruitthatstands 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 indrvidually 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 GoodsWrap 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...rich 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 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 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 longerthan 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. 13 1 II 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. Shutoff theicemakerwatersupplya day ahead of time. Disconnect the water line. After the last supply of ice drops, lift the signal arm to turn off the ice maker. 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 levelling rollers; tape the doors shut; tape the electric cord to the cabinet. When you get to your new home, put everything back, level the refrigerator, reconnect the water supply and refer to page 4. 1. Turn off your ice maker. 2. Shut off the water supply 3. Empty the ice bin. to the ice maker. Long vacations... Remove all the food if you are going for a month or more. At least a day ahead, turn off the water supply to the ice maker. When the last load of ice drops, turn off the ice maker. Unplug the refrigerator and clean it...rinse well and dry.

On hot days, or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs longer, 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 refrigeration and may require more running time than your old one.
