Power Saver Control...
The Power Saver 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.
1. Use the “CONSUMES LESS ENERGY” setting when
humidity
is low.
2. 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.

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.

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

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.

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.
FOOD STORAGECHART
Storage times* will vary according
to the quality of the food, the type of packaging

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.

to run too much:
Is the condenser
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, 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.
