If service is disrupted for more than 24 hours ... Remove all frozen food and store in a frozen food locker OR Place 2 lbs. (0.9 kg) of dry ice in freezer Wear gloves to protect your hands from dry ice bums. Failure to do so could result in dry ice bums. OR If dry ice or a food locker is not available, use perishable food at once or preserve by other methods. NOTE: A full freezer stays colder longer than a partly filled one. A freezer full of meat stays colder longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If food contains ice crystals, it may be safely refrozen, but the quality and flavor of the food may be affected. Use refrozen food quickly. If the condition of the food is poor, or you feel it is unsafe to eat, dispose of it immediately. Vacation and moving guide.

Check circuit voltage at fuse/circuit breaker box. Switch Refrigerator Control to ON. Replace fuse with a time-delay fuse of the correct capacity. Reset circuit breaker. Refrigerator Control is turned on. Fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped. Also check if a time-delay fuse has been used. Rattling, jingling noise or unfamiliar sounds. Nothing is on top or behind the refrigerator when the refrigerator is operating. These are “normal operating” sounds: humming from fans, clicking from thermostat or defrost cycle, or defrost water drainina into the defrost pan. Remove objects from the top or from behind the refrigerator. R”b”,otg “Normal operating sounds” section Ice maker will not make ice. Freezer compartment has had enough time to get cold.
