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. ? In with automatic icemakers, avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the heating element that releases the cubes. DO NOT place fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in. ? DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely. The United States Department of Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says: Read all instructions before ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 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: position ...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. ? a Do not modify or extend the Power Cord length. It will cause electric shock or fire. both controls to the OFF does not remove power to the light circuit.

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 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. ? 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. ? 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 refrigerator. ? ? ? ? Contraction and 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. Check if... REFRIGERATOR DOES NOT OPERATE The power Then... supply cord is unplugged.
