CHILD SAFETY
PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
•
This Use & Care Manual provides specific operating
instructions for your model. Use your refrigerator only as
instructed in this manual. These instructions are not meant to
cover every possible condition and situation that may occur.
Common sense and caution must be practiced when installing,
operating and maintaining any appliance.
•
Please record your model and serial numbers below for
future reference. This information is found on your serial
plate located inside the refrigerator compartment.
•
•
NOTE
Use only soap and water to clean serial plate.

Model Number:
Serial Number:
Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior
wrapping material immediately after the freezer is
unpacked. Children should never use these items to
play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic
sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight
chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause
severe cuts, and destroy finishes if they come in contact
with other appliances or furniture.
An empty, discarded ice box, refrigerator, or freezer is a
very dangerous attraction to children.
Remove and discard any spacers used to secure the
shelves during shipping. Small objects are a choke
hazard to children.
Remove the door(s) of any appliance that is not in use,
even if it is being discarded.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
INSTALLATION
WARNING
ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
This Owner’s Guide provides specific operating instructions for
your model. Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this
Owner’s Guide. Before starting the refrigerator, follow these
important first steps.
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety
mechanisms in the design of this refrigerator will operate
properly.
INSTALLATION
•
•
•
•
Refer to the serial plate for correct electrical rating.
The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a
three-prong grounding plug for your protection against
shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a
properly grounded three-prong receptacle. The power
supply circuit must be installed in accordance with
current edition of the National Electrical Code (NFPA
70) and local codes and ordinances. Consult a qualified
electrician. Receptacles protected by Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupters (GFIC) are NOT RECOMMENDED.
Do not use an extension cord or adapter plug.
If voltage varies by 10% or more, refrigerator performance
may be affected. Operating refrigerator with insufficient
power can damage the motor. Such damage is not
covered under the warranty. If you suspect your house
voltage is high or low, consult your power company for
testing.
To prevent the refrigerator from being turned off
accidentically, do not plug unit into an outlet controlled
by a wall switch or pull cord.
Do not pinch, knot, or bend the cord in any manner.
•
•
•
•
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. Do
Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
For the most efficient operation, the refrigerator should be
located where surrounding temperatures will not drop
below 40° F (5° C) or exceed 110° F (43° C).
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation,
proper air circulation, and electrical connections:
Sides
3/8” minimum
Back & Top
1” minimum
Do Not block the toe grille on the lower front of your
refrigerator. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the
proper operation of your refrigerator.

OTHER PRECAUTIONS
•
•
To defrost refrigerator, always unplug unit first.
Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the cord. Always
grip the plug firmly, and pull straight out from the receptacle.
NOTE
Freezer
Turning the temperature control to OFF turns off the
compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light
bulb or other electrical components.
Installation
NOTE
The exterior walls of the refrigerator may become quite warm
as the compressor works to transfer heat from the inside.
Temperatures as much as 30° F warmer than room
temperature can be expected.
WARNING
Avoid fire hazard or
electric shock. Do not use
an extension cord or an
adapter plug. Do not
remove any prong from
the power cord.

CRISPERS
(SOME MODELS)
The crispers, located under
the bottom refrigerator shelf,
are designed for storing fruits,
vegetables, and other fresh
produce. Wash items in clear
water and remove excess
water before placing them in
the crispers. Items with strong
odors or high moisture content
should be wrapped before

Crisper Drawer
HUMIDITY CONTROL (SOME MODELS)
VACATION AND MOVING TIPS
The Humidity Control, present on some models with crisper
drawers, allows you to adjust the humidity within the crisper. This
can extend the life of fresh vegetables that keep best in high
humidity.
Short Vacations:
Long Vacations:
NOTE
Leafy vegetables keep best
when stored with the
Humidity Control set on
High Humidity, or in a
drawer without a Humidity
Control. This keeps
incoming air to a minimum
and maintains maximum
moisture content.
If the refrigerator will not be used for several months:
•
Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
•
Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
•
Leave the refrigerator door open slightly, blocking it open if
necessary, to prevent odor and mold growth.

FOOD STORAGE AND
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
•
FOOD STORAGE IDEAS
Fresh Food Storage
•
•
The fresh food compartment should be kept between 34° F
and 40° F with an optimum temperature of 37° F.
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves. This reduces
the circulation of air around the food and results in uneven
cooling.
Fruits and Vegetables
•
Storage in the crisper drawers traps moisture to help
preserve the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time
periods.
Meat
•
Raw meat and poultry should be wrapped securely so
leakage and contamination of other foods or surfaces does
not occur.
ENERGY SAVING IDEAS
•
•
•
•
•
•
Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less
than three weeks.
Locate the refrigerator in the coolest
part of the room, out of direct
sunlight, and away from heating ducts
or registers. Do not place the
refrigerator next to heat-producing
appliances such as a range, oven, or
dishwasher. If this is not possible, a
section of cabinetry or an added layer
of insulation between the two appliances will help the
refrigerator operate more efficiently.
Level the refrigerator so that the door closes tightly.
Refer to the “SETTING THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL”
section for the suggested temperature control settings.
Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air vents.
Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer and use
more energy.
Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing them
in the refrigerator. This cuts down on moisture build-up
inside the unit.
Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings. Remove
as many items as needed at one time and close the door
as soon as possible.
6
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the refrigerator.
Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets, and
shelves by taping them securely in place to prevent
damage.
In the moving vehicle, secure refrigerator in an upright
position to prevent movement. Also protect outside of
refrigerator with a blanket, or similar item.
CARE AND CLEANING
NOTE
Keep your refrigerator clean to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up
any spills immediately and clean at least twice a year. Never
use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or
strong alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash any
removable parts in a dishwasher. Always unplug the electrical
power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
•
•
CAUTION
•
•
When moving the refrigerator, pull straight out. Do not
shift the refrigerator from side to side as this may tear
or gouge the floor covering.
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not
touch interior metal surfaces with wet or damp hands.
Turning the refrigerator temperature control to “OFF” turns
off the compressor, but does not disconnect electrical
power to the light bulb or other electrical components. To
turn off power to your refrigerator, you must unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which
can scratch the appliance surface when removing
adhesive labels. Any glue left from tape or labels can be
removed with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent, or, touch the glue residue with the sticky side of
tape you have already removed. Do not remove the
serial plate.
