CAUTION: Attaching an
adapter ground terminal to the wall outlet cover screw
does not ground the appliance unless the cover screw is
metal, and not insulated, and the wail outlet is grounded
through the house wiring You should have circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the
outlet is properly grounded°
Adjustable rollers behind the base grille enable you to
move the refrigerator away from the wall for cleaning.
These rollers should be set so the refrigerator rests firmly
on the floor with the front raised just enough that the
doors close easily when opened about halfi,vay.
When disconnecting
the power cord from the
adapter, always hold the adapter with one hand., if this
is not done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to
break with repeated use.
• Remove the base grille
Grasp it at the bottom
and putl it out
Should the adapter ground terminal break, DO
NOT USE the appliance until a proper ground has
again been established°
Use of Extension Cords
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an
extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an
extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL
listed 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the
electrical rating of the cord be t5 amperes (minimum)
and 120 volts
Electrical Requirements
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual e!ectricat outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a
fire hazard from overheated wires
To adjust the rollers:
•Turn the roller adjusting
screws clockwise to raise
the refrigerator, counterclockwise to lower it.
Use a blade-type
screwdriver. Both doors
should close properly
when bottom front edge of
refrigerator cabinet is about 3/4" from the floor..
• To replace the base
grille, line up the prongs
on the grille with the
clamps on the refrigerator
and push forward until
the grille snaps into place.

Temperature
Controls
Your refrigerator has two controls that let you
regulate the temperature in the fresh food and
freezer compartments
At first, set the Fresh Food control at "5" and the
Freezer control at "C'(
Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize, whether
you are setting the controls for the first lime or adjusting
them later. Then, if you want colder or warmer
temperatures in either compartment, adjust the controls
one letter or number at a time
NOTE: Turning the Fresh Food control to OFF turns off
cooling in both compartments-fresh food and freezerbut does not shut off power to the refrigerator
How to test temperatures:
Use milk test for fresh food compartment,
Place
a container of milk on the top shelf in the fresh food
compartment, Check it a day later, If the milk is too
warm or too cold, adjust the temperature controls.
To reduce the amount
of electricity required
to operate your refrigerator,
be sure the switch
is pushed to the left positiom This turns off the
heater in your refrigerator that prevents moisture
from forming on the outside
If moisture forms on the outside of the
refrigerator,
push the Power Miser Switch to
the right, The low-wattage heater will warm the
outside of the cabinet and, under most conditions,
prevent the forming of moisture or water droplets

Fresh Food Storage Tips
To store unfrozen
meats, fish and poultry:
• Always remove store wrappings
• Rewrap in bil, film or wax paper and refrigerate
immediately
To store cheese, wrap well with wax paper or
aluminum foil, or put in a plastic bag.
• Carefully wrap to expel air and help prevent mold

frozen food supply, leave the freezer setting at this colder
setting for the entire winter or for as long as you keep
your thermostat turned down
Moving the freezer control to a colder setting should
have no effect on your fresh food compartment.
However, if freezing occurs, move the fresh food control

To freeze meat, fish and poultry, wrap well in
freezer-weight foil (or other heavy-duty wrapping
material) forming it carefully to the shape of the

the package to provide a good, lasting seal.
Don't refreeze meat that has completely thawed;
meat, whether raw or cooked, can be frozen
successfully onIy once..
For convenience_.
• Store like things together. This saves both time and
electricity because you can find foods fQster,
• Place the oldest items up front so they can be used
up promptly,
" Use door shelves or bins for most often used items.
To save money in energy and food costs...
• Cover moist foods with tight lids, plastic film or foil.,
• Leaf vegetables and fruits placed in drawers will last
longer when stored in closed plastic containers or
wrapped in plastic film..
• Do not overload your fresh food or freezer
compartment with a lot of warm food at once_
" Open the doors the fewest times possible to save
electrical energy..
" When going out of town for several days, leave
as few perishables as possible in the refrigerator
If your refrigerator has an icemaker, move the
icemaker feeler arm to the STOP (up) position and
shut off water to the refrigerator._
Meats, fish and poultry purchased from the store vary in
quality and age; consequently, safe storage times in your
refrigerator will vary
To store ice cream-Fine-quality ice cream, with
high cream content, will normally require slightly
lower temperatures than more "airy" alreadypackaged brands with low cream contenL

CAUTION: Under certain rare circumstances, ice cubes
may be discolored, usually appearing with o greenbluish color_ This unusual discoloration is apparently due
to a combination of factors such as certain characteristics
of local waters, household p_umbing and the accumulation
of copper salts in an inactive water supply line which
feeds the icemaker. Continued consumption of such
