Ice cube trays.. .
To remove ice:
If cubes are not used, they may shrink. The moving
cold air starts a slow evaporation.
The longer cubes
are stored, the smaller they get.
Optional automatic ice maker.. .
If you have the automatic ice maker accessory or
plan to add one later (Part No. ECKMF-61). there are a
few things you will want to know:
l The ON/OFF
lever is a wire signal arm.
Down...for making ice automatically;
Up...toshut off the ice maker.
l 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 OToff-flavored. Discard the
first few batches of ice.
Your ice maker will work faster when the freezer is
colder. If you want rnme ice, turn the Temperature
Control to a higher number, or turn the Air Control
to a higher number.
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.
Good water quality is important for good 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
softener 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

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
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 Temperature
Control to OFF. unplug it, take out all removable
parts, and clean it according
to the following
directions.
l
l
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 OFF unless
moisture forms on the 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.

FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
FOODS
6
3
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
non-permeable
plastic wraps (such as Saran) are
recommended.
Note: Heat-sealed boiling bags are
easy to use and can be used by themselves or as
carton liners.
Sealing- When sealing foods in bags squeeze
to allow for
out the alr (liquids need headspace
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:
With unboned meats, pad sharp edges with extra
wrap or use stockinette to protect the wrap from
punctures.
DO NOT USE:
Bread wrappers
Non-polyethylene plastic containers
l Containers without tight lids
.~~paper
0 Waxed-coated freezer wmp
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap

l
Freezing Frultr - 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 of 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 01 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.
Freezlng Cooked Food - Prepare cooked
foods as you would for the table; shorten cooking
time10 to15 minutes toallow 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.
Coo 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.
Freezlng 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
OTrolled 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.
IMPORTANT: Do not expect your
freezer to quick-freeze
any large
quantlty of food. Put no more unfrozen food Into the freezer than will
freeze wtthln 24 hours. (No more than
2 to 3 pounds of tresh meat or 3 to 4
pounds of vegetables per cubic foot
of freezer space.) leave enough
space for alr to circulate around
packages.
Be careful
to leave
enough room at the front so the door
can close tlgMly.

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
conditton of the food is poor or you have any
suspicions, it is wise to dispose of it.

sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, defrost
water draining into the defrost pan.

If the motor seems to run too much:
Is the condenser, behind the base grille, free of 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 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.
