Care and maintenance
General information
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator
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.
