Ice cube trays...
If cubes are not used, they may shrink. The moving cold air starts a slow evaporation.
The longer
cubes are stored, the smaller they get.
Optional automatic ice maker...
If you have the automatic
ice maker accessory,
or if you plan to add one later (Part No. ECKMF-83)
there are a few things you will want to know:
l
l
l
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.
Down.,..for making ice automatically.
Up...to shut off the ice maker.
Shake the bin occasionally
to keep cubes separated, and to obtain increased storage capacity
It is normal for ice crescents to be attached
by a
corner. They will break apart easily.

ends.
You will hear water running when ice maker is
working. You’ll hear ice fall into the bin. Don’t lel
these sounds bother you.
The ice maker will not operate until the freezer
is cold enough
to make ice. This can take
overnight.
Because of new plumbing
connections,
the first
ice may be discolored
or off-flavored.
Discard
the first few batches of ice.
If ice is not being made fast enough and more
ice is needed, turn the Refrigerator
Control toward a higher number. Wait a day and, if necessary, turn the Freezer Control toward A.
If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to
shut off the ice maker. When you return the bin,
push it all the way in and lower the arm to the ON
position.
If cubes are stored too long, they may develop
an off-flavor...like
stale water. Throw them away.
They will be replaced.
Cubes in the ice bin can
also become smaller by evaporation.
Good water quality is important
for good ice
quality. It is not recommended
that the ice maker
be connected
to a softened water supply. Water
softener chemicals
such as salt from a malfunctioning softener can damage
the ice maker
mold and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened
water supply cannot be avoided, then it is important that the water softener be well maintained
and operating
properly.
Sounds you may hear...
Your new refrigerator
may make sounds that your old one didn’t.
Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned
about them.
Don’t be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like the floor,
walls and cabinets can make the sounds seem louder.
The following chart describes
the kinds of sounds that might be new to
you, and what may be making them.

Energy saving tips...
You can help your refrigerator
use less electricity
Check door gaskets for a tight seal, Level the
cabinet to be sure of a good seal.
l Clean
the condenser
coil regularly
l Open
the door as few times as possible. Think
about what you need before you open the door.
Get everything
out at 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.
l
l
Cleaning your refrigerator
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost
automatically.
But both should be cleaned
about
once a month to help prevent odors from building
up. Of course,spills should be wiped up right away.
To clean your refrigerator
turn the Refrigerator
Control to OFF, unplug it, take out all removable
parts and clean it according
to the following
directions.
l
l
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 likes them, that’s
cold enough.
Keep the Power Saving Control on CONSUMES
LESSENERGY unless moisture forms on refrigerator
exterior.
Make sure your refrigerator
is not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace,
radiator or in direct sunlight.

FREEZING & STORING
FROZEN FOODS
The freezer section is designed
for storage of
commercially
frozen foods and for freezing foods
at home.
Packaging
-The secret of successful freezing is
in the packaging.
The wrap you use must be air,
moisture and vapor proof. The way you close and
seal the package
must not allow air, moisture or
vapor in or out. Packaging
done in any other way
could cause food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator
and drying of frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene
(plastic]
containers
with
tightfitting
lids, straight-sided
canning/freezing
jars, heavy-duty
aluminum foil, plasfic-coated
paper and nonpermeable
plastic wraps (made from
a Saran film] are recommended.
NOTE: Heatsealed boiling bags are easy to use and can be
used by themselves
or as carton liners.
Sealing - When sealing foods in bags squeeze
out the air (liquids need headspace
to allow for
expansion).
Twist the top and turn it back. Fasten tie
securely
around
the doubled-over
tail. Put the
label inside transparent
bags: use self-adhesive
label on outside of opaque
ones.
Air-tight wrapping
calls for “drugstore” wrap. Cut
the sheet about one-third longer than the distance
around the food. Bring the ends together and fold
in (toward the food] at least twice to seal out air.
Crease ends close to food, press air from package.
Fold tips over twice. Finish package
and tape
closed. NOTE: With unboned
meats, pad sharp
edges with extra wrap or use stockinette
to protect the wrap from punctures.
DO NOT USE:
Bread wrappers
l Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l Containers
without tight lids
9 Waxed paper
l Waxed-coated
freezer wrap
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
None of these are totally moisture, air or vapor
proof. The use of these wrappings
could
cause food odor and taste transfer and drying of frozen food.
l
Freezing Fruits - Select ripe, blemish-free
fruits,
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to 3
quarts (liters) at a time and drain. Fruit that stands in
water may lose food value and become
soggy.
Sort, peel, trim, pit and slice as needed.
Pack in rigid wide-mouthed
containers or other
recommended
material.
Leave head space to
allow liquids to expand during freezing.
12
Freezing Vegetables - Freeze only fresh highquality vegetables
picked when barely mature.
For best results, freeze no more than 2 to 3 hours
after picking. Wash in cold water, sort and cut into
appropriate
sizes. Blanch or scald. Pack in recommended container and freeze.
Do not freeze
lettuce,
celery,
carrot
sticks,
potatoes or fresh tomatoes. All will become limp or
mushy Tomatoes will collapse
when thawed.
Freezing Cooked Food-Prepare cooked foods
as you would for the table; shorten cooking time 10
to 15 minutes to allow for additional
cooking during reheating. Omit seasonings and part of the liquid. Plan to add them at reheating
time. Potatoes
should also be added to soup and stew at heating
time. Add crumb and cheese toppings at heating
time.
Cool as rapidly as possible and freeze at once.
Liquid or semi-liquid
dishes may be frozen in recommended
containers
with head-space.
Casseroles and other more solid foods may be frozen
in the baking container. If you don’t want to leave
your casserole
dish in the freezer, line it with foil.
Bake, cool, freeze, lift out the foil package,
bag it
and return to freezer.
Freezing Meats - The meat you thaw can only
be as good as the meat you freeze. “Drugstore”
wrap in meal-size packages.
Flat cuts or patties
should be wrapped
individually
or in layers separated by a double thickness of freezer wrap.
Make sure store wrappings
are moisture and
vapor proof. If not, re-wrap meats with one of the
wraps recommended
under “Packaging:’
Freezing Baked Goods-Wrap baked breads in
recommended
material.
Thaw in wrapping.
Unbaked yeast breads can be frozen after the first
rising. Punch down, wrap and freeze.
Bake cookies as usual. Cool and freeze on trays,
then pack in recommended
freezer bags or cartons. Unbaked cookies may be dropped,
molded
or rolled and frozen on cookie trays. Store in bag or
carton; bake without thawing.
Refrigerator-type
cookies can be wrapped
and frozen in roll form.
Thaw only enough to slice when ready to bake.
Fruit pies are best frozen unbaked. Bake without
thawing.
Bake pecan
and similar pies before
freezing...rich
fillings do not freeze solid. Cut steam
vents in top crusts when ready to bake.
IMPORTANT: Do not expect your freezer to quickfreeze 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
food per cubic toot 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.

Vacation
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. If your refrigerator
is equipped
with an automatic
ice maker:
1. Turn it off.
2. Shut off the water supply to the ice maker.
3. Empty the ice bin.
If your refrigerator
is equipped
with an automatic ice maker, shut off the ice maker water supply a day ahead of time. Disconnect the water line.
After the last supply of ice drops, lift the signal arm
to turn off the ice maker.
Remove all food. Pack frozen foods in dry ice.
Unplug the refrigerator
and clean it thoroughly.
Remove everything
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 if you have an ice maker.
Long vacations...
Remove all the food if you are going for a month
or more. If your refrigerator
is equipped
with an
automatic
ice maker, turn off the water supply to
the ice maker at least a day ahead. When the last
load of ice drops, turn off the ice maker.

doorskeeping
them open far enough for air to
get in. This will keep odor and mold from building
up.

If there is water in the defrost pan:
l This is normal
in hot, muggy weather.The
pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator
is
level so the pan does not overflow.
If the light does not work:
l Have
you checked
your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l Is the power
supply cord plugged
into a live circuit with the proper voltage? (See page 4.)
If a bulb is burned out:
See instructions for changing
light bulbs on page
6. Only use appliance
bulbs.
l
If the motor seems to run too much:
Is the condenser, behind the refrigerator, 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.
l
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.
