Initially, dials are setted at mid-point. For colder temperatures,
adjust Refrigerator Compartment dial to the "COLDEST", and for
warmer temperatures adjust the dial to the "COLD".
CONTROLS FOR FREEZER COMPARTMENT
?
FREEZER CONTROL
-
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Setting at "8", the
freezer compartment becomes colder. But the refrigerator
compartment becomes warmer because less cold air flows into the
refrigerator compartment.
?
In cold weather the unit

a
tendency to
warm
up. For

?
?
?
If you take a lot of foods in the freezer or open its door frequently, its temperature is apt to be
somewhat higher. In this case, set the FREEZER CONTROL dial between 7 and 8 to cool it. Return
the FREEZER CONTROL dial to the original position to cut down the consumption of energy.
In hot weather
put much foods in the refrigerator compartment, the refrigerator
compartment has tendency to warm up.
For colder refrigerator, turn the FREEZER CONTROL to "2"~"4"to direct more cold air into the
refrigerator compartment, and the TEMP. CONTROL to "7"~"8".
