using this appliance.
NEVER unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull it
straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all electric service
cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or
abrasion damage along its length or at either the
plug or connector end.
When moving your refrigerator away from the wall,
be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
DO NOT allow children to climb, stand or hang on
the refrigerator doors or shelves in the refrigerator.
They could damage the refrigerator and seriously
injure themselves.
Keep fingers out of pinch point areas; clearances
between the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are in the area.
Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making
any repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing
be performed by a qualified individual.
Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, unplug
the refrigerator or turn off power at the circuit
breaker or fuse box in order to avoid contact with
live wire filament. (A burned-out light bulb may
break when being replaced.)
NOTE:

This refrigerator must be properly installed in

After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch
the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment when
hands are damp or wet. Skin may adhere to the
extremely cold surfaces.
?

moving parts of the ejector

DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely. The United States Department of
Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have
thawed if they still contain ice crystals or if they
are
still cold---below 4°C.
...Thawed ground meats, poultry or fish that have
any off-odor or off-color should not be refrozen
and should not be eaten. Thawed ice cream
should be discarded. If the odor or color of any
food is poor or questionable, get rid of it. The food
may be dangerous to eat.
Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the
eating quality of foods, particularly fruits, vegetables
and prepared foods. The eating quality of red meats
is affected less than that of many other foods. Use
refrozen foods as soon as possible to save as
much of their quality as you can.

ADJUSTING CONTROL SETTINGS
FOOD STORAGE GUIDE
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely
before making final adjustments. It is best to wait
24 hours before doing this. The mid-settings
indicated in the previous section should be
correct for normal household refrigerator usage.
The controls are set correctly when milk or juice
is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight
and moisture-proof material unless otherwise
noted. This

Items
The refrigerator control functions as the
thermostat for the entire appliance (refrigerator
and freezer sections). The higher the number
setting, the longer the compressor will run to
keep the temperature colder. The freezer control
adjusts the cold air flow from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Setting the freezer control to a lower
temperature keeps more cold air in the Freezer
compartment to make it colder.

UNDERSTANDING SOUNDS YOU
?
The defrost timer will click when the automatic
defrost cycle begins and ends. The thermostat
control (or refrigerator control, depending on the
model) will also click when cycling on and off.
?
Rattling noises may come from the flow of
refrigerant, the water line, or items stored on top
of the refrigerator.
Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to
keep your food items at the desired temperature.
The high efficiency compressor may cause your
new refrigerator to run longer than your old one, and
you may hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
MAY HEAR
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your
old one didn't make. Because the sounds are
new to you, you might be concerned about them.
Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces, like the floor, walls and cabinets, can
make the sounds seem louder than they actually
are. The following describes the kinds of sounds
and what may be making them.
?
?
You may hear the evaporator fan motor
circulating the air through the refrigerator and
freezer compartments.
?
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling
sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your
?
Contraction and
refrigerator.
?
expansion of the inside walls
may cause a popping noise.
Water dripping on the defrost heater during a
defrost cycle may cause a sizzling sound.
?
You may hear air being forced over the
condenser by the condenser fan.
?
You may hear water running into the drain pan
during the defrost cycle.
?
You can hear the noise occurred from the
fan at the freezer or the left side of the
refrigerator when doors are open.
