General Information
Vacation time
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the
refrigerator in operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord,
clean the interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor
formation.

Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity
of electrical parts(lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid
from getting into any electrical part and causing a electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong
alkaline solution, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object
will stick or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
