Operating Your Refrigerator
Temperature Control
The temperature control is located inside the refrigerator
compartment on the top. The refrigerator compartment
temperature control ranges from “1”, cold setting, to “7”,
coldest setting. The first time the unit is turned on, adjust
the temperature control knob to a higher (colder) setting
and run for at least 24 hours before readjusting the temeparture
and placing food inside. This will ensure the cabinet is
thoroughly chilled before food is placed into the refrigerator.
If you choose to change the thermostat setting, adjust the
thermostat by one increment at a time. After each movement of the control knob, allow
several hours for the unit to adjust completely. Large amounts of food may lower the
cooling efficiency of the appliance.

NOTE
If the unit is unplugged or loses power; you must wait 3 to 5 minutes before
restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, the
refrigerator may not start.
Replacing the Interior Light
Before removing the light bulb, turn the refrigerator temperature control to the “1”
position. Then unplug the electrical cord from the wall outlet. Failure to do so may
result in electrical shock or personal injury. Replace the old bulb with a new bulb of
the same wattage and size.
Freezer Compartment Operation
Temperature Control
Your refrigerator has one control for regulating the
temperature in the freezer compartment. The freezer
temperature control is located on the freezer compartment’s
interior back panel. For the best performance, leave the
freezer control at the midpoint and adjust the refrigerator
compartment temperature control. Adjust the freezer control
one increment at a time until the desired temperature is
reached.
Ice Tray
To make ice, pour cool water into ice tray and place it in the freezer
for two hours. To release ice cubes, twist the ice tray and the ice
cubes will separate from the ice tray. To shorten the time of making
ice, you can set the temperature control knob at a colder position.
NOTE
Do not store canned foods or food stored in glass containers in the freezer
compartment.

This compartment is designed for the long-term storage of frozen food. The storage life
of frozen foods varies and the recommended storage time should not be exceeded.
