shelf by inserting hooks at the rear into the
slots. Lower and lock into position.
Maximum storage time can be attained by
use of plastic wrap to prevent drying of
foods. The coldest storage area is the
main freezer compartment. Door shelves
are intended for shorter term storage
items such as juices, pastries, and
prepared foods.
Do not exceed the storage times specified
by the manufacturers of commercially
frozen and processed foods. Follow
package instructions.
CRISPER
Crisper is located under the bottom shelf,
and is used for storing fresh fruit and
vegetables. Vegetables should be washed
and drained before being placed into the
crisper. A variable humidity control,
available on some models, allows you to
adjust the storage environment in the
crisper.
Do not place effervescent drinks in the
frozen food storage section as bursting
and personal injury may result. Also for
personal safety, note that some products
such as water ices should not be consumed too cold.
IN THE EVENT OF POWER FAILURE
CHILLED MEAT KEEPER (Some
Models)
The meat keeper storage drawer has an
adjustable cold air feature. To obtain the
coldest temperature, slide the control to its
”coldest” position. Use this pan for short
term storage of bulk meat items. If meats
are to be kept longer than one or two

Care and
Cleaning
Hot or Humid
Climates
CONDENSER CLEANING
HOT OR HUMID CLIMATES
Since your refrigerator is equipped with a
Never Clean condenser, there’s no need
to clean the condenser under normal
operating conditions. If the refrigerator is
operated under particularly dusty or
greasy conditions, or if there is significant
pet traffic in your home, it may be necessary to periodically clean the condenser
for maximum efficiency.
If you are operating your refrigerator in a
hot or humid climate it is important to
follow these tips.
•
NEVER store uncovered liquids or
food in the refrigerator compartment.
This causes excessive moisture to
enter the evaporator area and may
hamper operation.
If cleaning of the condenser is necessary,
remove the toe grille and use an extended
vacuum attachment and condenser
cleaning brush (available from your local
dealer) to remove dust build-up from the
condenser coils.
•
Ensure that the refrigerator door is
closed and sealed. Remove any
objects that might prevent the door
from closing completely.
•
Warm temperatures and high humidity
affect the way your refrigerator
operates. Refer to the “ TEMPERATURE CONTROLS” section for details
on how to set the controls.
•
Keep the refrigerator door gasket dry.
Stagnant water can cause mildew to
grow.
•
DO NOT install the refrigerator outside
on a porch or balcony where it is
subjected to the weather.
•
A fan circulates air in the freezer and
refrigerator compartments. For proper
cooling and air circulation, DO NOT
block the air vents.
CARE AND CLEANING OF ICE
DISPENSER:
Clean the dispenser and storage bin
periodically:
1. Stop ice production (raise signal arm).
2. Remove storage bin. Empty and clean
with mild detergent and warm water.
DO NOT submerge bin in water or use
abrasive cleaners.
3. Remove ice chips, clean the shelf and
ice chute.
4. Replace storage bin.
5. Begin ice production again (lower
signal arm).
Plan to remove the ice storage bin from
the freezer if:
1. A power failure of 1 hour or more
causes ice remaining in machine to
melt and then freeze together causing
the ice making mechanism to jam
when the power resumes.
2. The ice maker is not used frequently.
CAUTION - DO NOT put fingers up ice
