New plumbing connectlons can give the first
cubes an odd taste or color. Just throw these
away. The Ice maker will refill the bin
Cubes stored too long may develop an offflavor...like stale water. Throw them away.

IMPORTANT:
Do not expect
your
freezer
to quick-freeze
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 fresh meat or 3 to 4
pounds of vegetables
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.

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

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. Turn off your ice maker; shut off
the water supply; empty the ice bin and make sure
all ice cubes are dispensed out of the mechanism.
Shut off the ice maker water supply a day ahead
of time. Disconnect the water line. After the last supply of ice drops, turn off the ice maker.
Remove all food. Pack frozen foods in dry ice.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it thoroughly. Remove every-thing 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, and refer to
page 4. Don’t forget to reconnect the water supply
line.
Long vacations. . .
Remove all the food if you are going for a month
or mote. 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. Tape rubber or wood blocks to both doors
. ..keeping them open far enough for air to get in.
This will keep odor and mold from building up.
Tape the blocks out of a child’s reach...do
allow children
near the refrigerator
when
doors are blocked

QUESTIONS?
.call your
COOL-LINE@’
service
assistance
telephone
number
If you need service or
assistance, we suggest
you follow these four steps:
1. Before calling for assistance.. .
Performance problems often result from little things
you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
If your refrigerator
will not operate:
Is the electric cord plugged in?
l Is a fuse blown or a circuit breaker
tripped?
l Is the Temperature
Control turned ON?
I~ there Is a rattling
or Jlngllng noise, or other
unfamlllar
sounds:
l Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator making noise when the refrigerator is running?
l New features
on your new refrigerator make new
sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, defrost
water draining into the defrost pan.
If your ice maker will not operate:
l Has the freezer had enough
time to get cold? With
a new refrigerator, this might take overnight.
l Is the signal urm ON,, .in the down position?
l Is the water valve turned on? Is water getting
to the
ice maker?
and talk with one of our trained Consultants. The
Consultant can instruct you in how to obtain satisfactory operation from your appliance
or, if service is
necessary. recommend
a qualified
service company in your area.
l
If there Is water In the defrost pan:
l In hot, muggy
weather, this is normal. The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator is level
so the pan doesn’t overflow.
If the lights aren’t working:
l Check
fuses and circuit breakers. Make sure it’s
plugged in.
If a bulb Is burned out:
l See instructions for changing
light bulbs on page
7, Use appliance
bulbs only.
If the motor seems to run too much:
l 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.
