See cleaning instructions for defrost pan and condenser coils on page 11.

Reversing the door swing

You can change the hinges on your refrigerator so the doors open the other way. Refer to the instruc- tions sheet included with your refrigerator.

Raise slgnal arm to stop ice.

Lower signal arm to start it.

Ice compartment door

Pull the ice compartment door panel out from the bottom and slide it to the rear.

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.

To remove ice:

1. Hold tray at both ends.

2. Twist slightly.

Optional automatic ice maker l l l

If you have the automatic ice maker accessory, or if you plan to add one later (Part No. ECKMF-90) there are a few things you will want to know:

The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.

Down.. .for making ice automatically.

Up...to shut off the ice maker.

NOTE: Do not turn ice maker on until it is con- nected to the water supply. Instructions for ice maker water supply hook-up are attached to the back of the refrigerator cabinet.

The dial or lever on the side of the ice maker changes the size of the cubes.

Shake the bin occasionally to keep cubes sepa- rated, and to obtain increased storage capacity. l l l l

It is normal for ice crescents to be attached by a corner. They will break apart easily.

You will hear water running when ice maker is working. You’ll hear ice fall into the bin. Don’t let 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.

9

Using Your Refrigerator

Continued l l l l

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. Ice maker will make new ice. 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 malfunc- tioning 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 describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you, and what may be making them.

Slight hum, soft hiss:

You may hear the refrigerator’s fan motor and moving air.

Clicking or snapping sounds:

The thermostat makes a definite click when the refrigerator stops running. It also makes a sound when the refrigerator starts. The defrost timer will click when the defrost cycle starts.

Water sounds:

When the refrigerator stops running, you may hear gurgling in the tubing for a few minutes after it stops. You may also hear defrost water running into the defrost water pan.

Running sounds:

Your refrigerator has a high-efficiency compressor and motor. It will run longer than older designs. It may even seem to run most of the time.

Ice maker sounds: l l trickling water thud (clatter of ice)

If your refrigerator has an ice maker, you may hear buzzing (from the water valve), trickling water and the clatter of ice dumped into the bin.

Energy saving tips l l l l l

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.

Clean the condenser coils regularly.

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 food orga- nized so you won’t have to search for what you want. Close door as soon as food is removed.

Go ahead and fill up the refrigerator, but don’t overcrowd it so air movement is blocked.

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. l l

Keep the Exterior Moisture Control on the OFF setting 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.

10

Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically. But both should be cleaned about once a month to help prevent odors from building up. Spills should be wiped up right away.

There is a correct way to package and store refrigerated or frozen food. To keep food fresher, longer, take the time to study these recommended steps.

Storing fresh food

Food placed in the refrigerator should be wrapped or stored in air and moisture proof material. This prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator. For dated products, check code date to ensure freshness.

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)

Store in crisper, plastic bags or plastic container.

Fruit

Wash, let dry and store in refrigerator in plastic bags or crisper. Do not wash or hull berries until they are ready to use. Sort and keep berries in their store container in a crisper, or store in a loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.

Meat

Most meat can be stored in original wrapping as long as it is air and moisture proof. Rewrap if nec- essary. See the following chart for storage times.

‘If meat is to be stored longer than the times given, follow the directions for freezing.

NOTE: Fresh fish and shellfish should be used the same day as purchased.

Eggs

Store without washing in the original carton on interior shelf.

Milk

Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place milk on interior shelf.

Butter or margarine

Keep opened butter in covered dish or closed compartment. When storing an extra supply, wrap in freezer packaging and freeze.

12

Cheese

Store in the original wrapping until you are ready to use it. Once opened, rewrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

Leftovers

Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

Plastic containers with tight lids can also be used.

Storing frozen food

The freezer section is designed for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing food at home. For further information about preparing food for freezing, contact your local Cooperative

Extension Service or check a freezer guide or cookbook.

Packaging

The secret of successful freezing is in the packag- ing. The way you close and seal the package must not allow air or moisture 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 tight fitting lids, straight-sided canning/freezing jars, heavy-duty aluminum foil, plastic-coated paper and nonpermeable plastic wraps (made from a

Saran film) are recommended. Follow package or container instructions for proper freezing methods. l l l

Do not use:

Bread wrappers

Non-polyethylene plastic containers

Containers without tight lids l l

Waxed paper

Waxed-coated freezer wrap l

Thin, semi-permeable wrap

The use of these wrappings could cause food odor and taste transfer and drying of frozen food.

Freezing

Do not expect your freezer to quick-freeze 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 foot 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.

Storage times will vary according to the quality of the food, the type of packaging or wrap used (air and moisture proof), and the storage temperature which should be 0°F (- 17.8%). For further information about food storage times, contact your local Cooperative Extension Service or check a freezer guide or cookbook.

Short vacations

No need to shut off the refrigerator if you will be away for less than four weeks. Use up perisha- bles; 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.

Long vacations

Remove all the food if you are going for a month or more. If your refrigerator is equipped with an auto- matic 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.

Unplug the refrigerator and clean it...rinse well and dry. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the top of both doors.. . keeping them open far enough for air to get in. This will keep odor and mold from building up.

Power interruptions

If electricity goes off, call the power company.

Ask how long power will be off.

1. If service is to be interrupted 24 hours or less, keep both doors closed. This will help frozen food stay frozen.

2. If service is to be interrupted longer than

24 hours:

(a) Remove all frozen food and store in a frozen food locker.

OR

(b) Place 2 Ibs. (0.9 kg) of dry ice in freezer for every cu. ft. of freezer space. This will keep food frozen for 2 to 4 days. Wear gloves to protect your hands from dry ice burns.

(c) If neither food locker storage nor dry ice is available, use or can perishable food at once.

3. A full freezer will stay cold longer than a partly filled one. A freezer full of meat will stay cold longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If food contains ice crystals, it may be safely refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected.

If the condition of the food is poor or if you feel it is unsafe, dispose of it.

Questions?

Call your COOL-LINE@ service assistance telephone number. (See page 14.)

Personal Injury Hazard

Do not allow children to climb on, play near or climb inside the refrigerator when the doors are blocked open. They may become injured or trapped.

To restart refrigerator, see “Using Your

Refrigerator” on page 5.

Moving

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 food in dry ice.

Unplug the refrigerator and clean it thoroughly.

Take out all removable parts. Wrap all parts well and tape them together so they don’t shift and rattle.

Screw in the leveling rollers. Tape the doors shut and 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.

you follow these steps:

1. Before calling for assistance...

Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.

If your refrigerator will not operate: l

Is the power supply cord plugged into a live circuit with proper voltage? (See page 4.) l l

Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit breaker box?

Is the Refrigerator Control ON?

If there is a rattling or jingling noise or unfamiliar sounds: l l

Is something on top of or behind the refrigerator making noise when the refrigerator is running?

New features on your new refrigerator make new sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, or defrost water draining in the defrost pan.

If your ice maker will not operate: l l

Has the freezer had enough time to get cold?

With a new refrigerator, this might take overnight.

Is the signal arm ON.. .in the down position? l

Is the water valve turned on? Is water getting to the ice maker?

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 proper voltage? (See page 4.)

If a bulb is burned out: l

See instructions for changing light bulbs on page 8. Use appliance bulbs only.

If the motor seems to run too much: l l

Is the condenser free of dust and lint?

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.

Remember:

Motor running time depends on different things: number of door openings, amount of food stored, temperature of the room, setting of the controls.

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 com- partment. All this means better refrigeration and may require more running time than your old one.
