Energy saving tips...
You can help yoL,r refrigerator use less electricity
Check door gaskets for a tight seal Level the cab1
net to be sure of a good seal
l Clear,
the condenser co11 regularly
l Open the door as few times as possible
Think about
what you need before you open the door Get
everything out clt 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 lakes them, that’s cold enough.

Performance problems otten result from little things
you can find and fix yourself without tools of any krnd
If your refrigerator
will not operate:
l Is the power
supply cord plugged into a live crrcurt
with the proper voltage? [See page 4 )
l Have you checked
your home’s main fuses or crrcuit
breaker box?
l Is the Refrigerator
Control turned ON?
If there is a rattling or jingling noise, or other unfamiliar
sounds:
l Is something
on top or behrnd the refrigerator maklng 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 lor the defrosting cycle, defrost
water drainrng Into the defrost pan
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 refrrgerator IS level so
the pan doesn’t overflow
If the light does not work:
l Have you checked
your home’s main fuses or circus+
breaker box?
l Is the power
supply cord plugged into a live circuli
with the proper voltage? [See page 4 )
If a bulb is burned out:
l See rnstructrons for changrng
light bulbs on page 6
IJse appliance
bulbs only
If the motor seems to run too much:
l Is the condenser,
behind the refrigerator, free of dust
and Irnt7
l On hot days, or if the room IS worm, the motor naturally runs longer
l If the door
has been opened a lot, or if a large
arnount of food has been put in, the motor ~111run
longer to cool down the Interior
Remember:
Motor running time depends on drfferent things. number of door openings, amount of
food stored, temperature
of the room, settrng 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
o regular freezer instead of o frozen food cornpart
ment All thus means better refrigeration and may requlre more running time than your old one
Screw In the levellrng legs, tape the doors shut, tape
the electric cord to the cabinet. When you get to your
new home, put everything back, level It, and refer to
