How food is frozen and thawed is important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor. Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as an bananas, and melons. prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil higher energy consumption. When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in a container with a lid. This prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food to keep its taste and nutrients. Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator Allow hot food to cool other food, and lead to temperatures even.

Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from direct contact with chilled air. Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling. When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer. NOTE ? If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent openning of the door storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause dew to form which has no effect on its performance. Remove the dew with dust cloth free from care. or 21 Care and maintenance 00 Suggestion on food How to dismantle parts NOTE ?

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. Vacation time in Most power failures that Power failure are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your refrigerator temperatures.
