Cleaning the Condenser
WARNING To reduce the risk of death or
electric shock, you must follow these
instructions:
Ŷ Unplug the refrigerator before removing any
panels.
Ŷ Do not contact or damage any wiring while the
panel is removed.
Ŷ Replace all parts and panels before plugging
the refrigerator back in.
Periodically, the condenser of the refrigerator will
become covered with dust and dirt. This can make your
refrigerator cool less effectively and use more energy.
You can improve the refrigerators' performance by
FOHDQLQJWKHFRQGHQVHU,WLVORFDWHG
at the back of your refrigerator, at the
bottom, behind the access cover.
Cleaning the condenser requires a
philliips screwdriver, vacuum cleaner
and soft brush with a long handle.
To clean the condenser:
1. Turn off the refrigerator.
2. Turn the leveling legs at each
front corner of the refrigerator
counterclockwise until the rollers
support the refrigerator.
3. Roll the refrigerator out far
enough so you can get behind it
at the bottom. Be sure not to pull
out any water lines connected to
your refrigerator.
