CAUTION
Do not store food with high moisture content towards the top of the refrigerator. The moisture
could come in direct contact with the cold air and freeze.
Wash food before storing it in the refrigerator. If necessary, rinse and thoroughly pat dry vegetables
and fruit to remove obvious soil, juice, or blemished areas, and wipe down food packaging to prevent
adjacent foods from being contaminated.
If the refrigerator is kept in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of
vegetables in the refrigerator may cause condensation to form. Wipe off the condensation with a
clean cloth or a paper towel.
If the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is opened too often, warm air may penetrate the
refrigerator and raise its temperature. This can increase the running costs of the unit.
NOTE
If you are leaving home for a short period of time, like a short vacation, the refrigerator should
be left on. Refrigerated foods that are able to be frozen will stay preserved longer if stored in the
freezer.
If you are leaving the refrigerator turned off for an extended period of time, remove all food and
unplug the power cord. Clean the interior, and leave the door open to prevent fungi from growing

HOW TO USE
Food Storage Tips
ENGLISH
* The following tips may not be applicable
depending on the model.
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight
and moisture-proof material unless otherwise
noted. This prevents food odor and taste
transfer throughout the refrigerator. For dated
products, check date code to ensure freshness.
Food
How To
Butter or
Margarine
Keep opened butter in a covered
dish or closed compartment.
When storing an extra supply, wrap
in freezer packaging and freeze.
Cheese
Store in the original wrapping
until you are ready to use it.
Once opened, rewrap tightly in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For coldest
milk, place containers on an
interior shelf.
Eggs
Store in original carton on
interior shelf, not on door shelf.
Fruit
Do not wash or hull the fruit
until it is ready to be used. Sort
and keep fruit in its original
container, in a crisper, or store in
a completely closed paper bag
on a refrigerator shelf.
Leafy
Vegetables
Remove store wrapping and
trim or tear off bruised and
discolored areas. Wash in cold
water and drain. Place in plastic
bag or plastic container and
store in crisper.
Vegetables
with skins
(carrots,
peppers)
Place in plastic bags or plastic
container and store in crisper.
Fish
Store fresh fish and shellfish in the
freezer section if they are not being
consumed the same day of purchase.
It is recommended to consume
fresh fish and shellfish the same
day purchased.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap
or aluminum foil, or store in plastic
containers with tight lids.
Storing Frozen Food
NOTE
Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook
for further information about preparing food
for freezing or food storage times.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large
quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen food
into the freezer than will freeze within 24 hours
(no more than 2 to 3 lbs. of food per cubic foot
of freezer space). Leave enough space in the
freezer 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
and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap
used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and
the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside a
sealed package are normal. This simply means
that moisture in the food and air inside the
package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
NOTE
Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30 minutes, then package and freeze.
Cooling hot foods before freezing saves
energy.
HOW TO USE 32
Storing Frozen Food (continued)
Successful freezing depends on correct
packaging. When you close and seal the
package, it must not allow air or moisture in or
out. If it does, you could have food odor and
taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and
could also dry out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:

compartment. This raises the temperature and
moisture level within the compartment. To lessen
the effect, reduce the frequency and duration of
door openings.
Doors not closed correctly.
See the Doors will not close correctly section in
the Troubleshooting section.
Weather is humid.
Humid weather allows additional moisture to enter
the compartments when the doors are opened
leading to condensation or frost. Maintaining a
reasonable level of humidity in the home will help
to control the amount of moisture that can enter
the compartments.
Defrost cycle recently
completed.
During the defrost cycle, the temperature of each
compartment may raise slightly and condensation
may form on the back wall. Wait 30 minutes and
confirm that the proper temperature has been
restored once the defrost cycle has completed.
Food is not packaged
correctly.
Food stored uncovered or unwrapped, and damp
containers can lead to moisture accumulation
within each compartment. Wipe all containers
dry and store food in sealed packaging to prevent
condensation and frost.
Food with high water content
was placed near an air vent.
Rearrange items with high water content away
from air vents.
Refrigerator temperature
control is set incorrectly.
If the temperature is too cold, adjust the
control one increment at a time and wait for the
temperature to stabilize. Refer to the Setting the

Refrigerator is installed in a
cold location.
When the refrigerator is operated in temperatures
below 41°F (5°C), food can freeze in the refrigerator
compartment. The refrigerator should not be
operated in temperatures below 55°F (13°C).
Door is opened frequently
or for long periods of time.
When the doors are opened often or for long
periods of time, warm, humid air enters the
compartment. This raises the temperature and
moisture level within the compartment. Increased
moisture will lead to frost and condensation.
To lessen the effect, reduce the frequency and

Condensation from food
with a high water content
has frozen inside of the
food package.
This is normal for food items with a high water
content.
Food has been left in the
freezer for a long period of
time.
Do not store food items with high water content in
the freezer for a long period of time.
Icemaker is not
making enough
ice.
Demand exceeds ice
storage capacity.
The icemaker will produce approximately 70-210
cubes in a 24 hour period.
House water supply is not
connected, valve is not
turned on fully, or valve is
clogged.
Connect the refrigerator to a cold water supply
with adequate pressure and turn the water shutoff
valve fully open.
Water filter has been
exhausted.
It is recommended that you replace the water filter:
• Approximately every six months.
• When the water filter indicator turns on.
• When the water dispenser output decreases.
• When the ice cubes are smaller than normal.
Low house water supply
pressure.
The water pressure must be between 20 and 120
psi (0,14 y 0,82 MPa) on models without a water
filter and between 40 and 120 psi (0,28 y 0,82 MPa)
on models with a water filter.
If the problem persists, it may be necessary to
contact a plumber.
Reverse Osmosis filtration
system is used.
Reverse osmosis filtration systems can reduce
the water pressure below the minimum amount
and result in icemaker issues. (Refer to Water
Pressure section.)
Tubing connecting
refrigerator to house supply
valve is kinked.
The tubing can kink when the refrigerator is
moved during installation or cleaning resulting in
reduced water flow. Straighten or repair the water
supply line and arrange it to prevent future kinks.
Doors are opened often or
for long periods of time.
If the doors of the unit are opened often, ambient
air will warm the refrigerator which will prevent
the unit from maintaining the set temperature.
Lowering the refrigerator temperature can help, as
well as not opening the doors as frequently.
Doors are not closed
completely.
If the doors are not properly closed, ice production
will be affected. See the Doors will not close
completely or pop open section in Parts &
Features Troubleshooting for more information.
The temperature setting for
the freezer is too warm.
The recommended temperature for the freezer
compartment for normal ice production is 0°F (–18 °C).
If the freezer temperature is warmer, ice production
will be affected.
If the problem persists, it may be necessary to
contact a plumber.

to begin making ice.
Icemaker not turned on.
Locate the icemaker ON/OFF switch and confirm
that it is in the ON (I) position.
The ice detecting sensor is
obstructed.
Foreign substances or frost on the ice-detecting
sensor can interrupt ice production. Make sure
that the sensor area is clean at all times for proper

If your icemaker is equipped with an ice shutoff
arm, make sure that the arm moves freely. If
your icemaker is equipped with the electronic ice
shutoff sensor, make sure that there is a clear
path between the two sensors.
Reverse osmosis water
filtration system is
connected to your cold
water supply.
Reverse osmosis filtration systems can reduce
the water pressure below the minimum amount
and result in icemaker issues. (Refer to the Water
Pressure section.)
Water supply contains
minerals such as sulfur.
A water filter may need to be installed to eliminate
taste and odor problems. NOTE: In some cases,
a filter may not help. It may not be possible
to remove all minerals/odor/taste in all water
supplies.
Icemaker was recently
installed.
Ice that has been stored for too long will shrink,
become cloudy, and may develop a stale taste.
Throw away old ice and make a new supply.
The food has not been
stored properly in either
compartment.
Rewrap the food. Odors may migrate to the ice if
food is not wrapped properly.
The interior of the
refrigerator needs to be
cleaned.
See the Care and Cleaning section for more
information.
The ice storage bin needs
to be cleaned.
Empty and wash the bin (discard old cubes).
Make sure that the bin is completely dry before
reinstalling it.
Icemaker shutoff (arm/
sensor) is obstructed
Empty the ice bin. If your icemaker is equipped
with an ice shutoff arm, make sure that the arm
moves freely. If your icemaker is equipped with
the electronic ice shutoff sensor, make sure that
there is a clear path between the two sensors.
Reinstall the ice bin and wait 24 hours to confirm
proper operation.
