Food Storage Guide

Storing Fresh Food (All Refrigerator)

Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moistureproof material. This prevents food odor and taste transfer. For dated products, check use-by date to ensure freshness.

To store leafy vegetables, remove store wrapping. Then tear off bruised and discolored areas. Wash the vegetables in cold water and drain, and then place them in a plastic bag or plastic container and store in your produce drawer.

For vegetables with skins, such as carrots and peppers, store in plastic bags or containers.

When refrigerating fruit, wash the fruit and then let it dry.

Store the fruit in plastic bags. Don't wash or hull berries until they are ready to use. Instead, sort and keep berries in their original container in the produce drawer, or store in a loosely closed paper bag on the refrigerator shelf.

Store eggs without washing them. Keep eggs in their original carton or in your refrigerator's egg bin.

Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place milk on an interior shelf.

Keep opened butter in covered dish or closed compartment.

When storing butter in the freezer, wrap it in freezer packaging.

When you have leftovers, cover then with plastic wrap, aluminum foil, or store the leftovers in plastic containers with tight lids.

Store meat in its original wrapping, as long as it's airtight and moisture-proof. Rewrap meat if necessary.

NOTE: When storing meat longer than the recommended times, freeze the meat.

The Adjustable ColdZone™ drawer is ideal for longer term meat storage because the temperature can be set 3˚ to 5˚ colder.

Recommended storage times:

Chicken 1-2 days

Food Storage Guide

Packaging Food for Freezing (All Freezer)

The secret of successful freezing is in the packaging; the way you close and seal a package of food must not allow air or moisture in or out, or the quality of the food will deteriorate while frozen.

Packaging you should not use for freezing includes:

• Bread wrappers

• Non-polyethylene plastic containers

• Containers without lids

• Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap

• Thin, semi-permeable wrap

Recommended packaging:

• Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting lids

• Straight-sided canning/freezing jars

• Heavy-duty aluminum foil

• Plastic-coated paper

• Non-permeable plastic wraps (made from saran film)

• Zip-top freezer bags

Follow package or container instructions for proper freezing methods.

Freezing Foods (All Freezer)

Do not expect your freezer to quick-freeze large quantities of food; do not load more than two to three pounds of unfrozen food per cubic foot within 24 hours. Leave enough space for air to circulate around packages, and be careful to leave enough room at the front so the freezer door can close tightly.

A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled one, and a freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If food contains ice crystals, it may be safely refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected. If the condition of the food is poor, or if you feel it is unsafe, dispose of it.

Storage times will vary according to the quality of food, the type of packaging or wrap used (airtight and moisture-proof), and the storage temperature, which should be

0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C).

22

Cleaning and Maintenance

CAUTION

To avoid personal injury or property damage, read and follow all cleaning product manufacturer’s directions.

WARNING

To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe personal injury or death, turn power disconnect switch to OFF before cleaning. After cleaning, return power disconnect switch to ON position.

Your appliance is built to give you many years of dependable service. However, there are a few things you can do to help extend its life. This section tells you how to clean your appliance and what to do when going on vacation, moving, or during a power outage.

Interior Surfaces

Wash the interior surfaces with four tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in one quart of warm water. Use a soft, clean cloth. Rinse these surfaces with warm water, and dry with a soft clean cloth.

Do not use the following to clean interior surfaces:

• Abrasive or harsh cleaners, such as ammonia or chlorine bleach

• Concentrated detergents or solvents

• Metal scouring pads

These products can scratch, crack and discolor your appliance’s surfaces.

Also, never wash the ice bucket or shelves in the dishwasher.

They must be cleaned by hand.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Glass Shelves (All Refrigerator)

To clean your refrigerator's glass shelves, lift the shelf out by lifting the front and releasing the hooks from the metal track.

Then pull the shelf out. Be sure to allow the glass shelves to adjust to room temperature before cleaning.

To clean crevices, dilute mild detergent with water. Brush this solution into crevices using a plastic bristle brush. Let set for five minutes. Spray warm water into crevices using faucet spray attachment. Dry glass shelf thoroughly and replace shelf by inserting hooks into metal track and lowering front.

Door Gaskets

Clean the door gaskets every three months using the same procedures used for interior surfaces. You should apply a light film of petroleum jelly to keep gaskets pliable.

CAUTION

To avoid personal injury or property damage, handle tempered glass shelves carefully. Shelves may break suddenly if nicked, scratched, or exposed to sudden temperature changes.

WARNING

ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD

Disconnect power or turn power disconnect switch to OFF position before removing top grille. Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Saving Energy

You can help your appliance use less electricity with these simple tips:

• Open the door as few times as possible. Think about what you need before you open the door. Get everything out at one time. Keep food organized so you will not have to search for what you want. Close door as soon as food is removed.

• Do not overcrowd the unit so air movement is blocked.

• Do not set the unit to temperature colder than necessary.

Vacation Tip

When you will be gone from home a short time (less than four weeks), there is no need to shut off your apliance. However, be sure to:

• Use any perishables.

• Freeze other items.

• Raise the signal arm in the automatic ice maker to the off

(up) position and shut off water supply to the ice maker

(All Freezer).

If you will be away from home for a month or more, follow these guidelines:

• Remove all food.

• Turn the power disconnect switch to the off position.

• Clean the unit and door gaskets according to the

• Prop doors open with rubber or wood blocks so air can circulate inside. This will keep odor and mold from building up.

• Raise the signal arm in the automatic ice maker to the off

(up) position and shut off water supply to the ice maker (All Freezer)

Power Interruptions

If electric service to your freezer will be interrupted for 24 hours or less, keep the doors closed. This helps food stay frozen.

If service will be interrupted longer than 24 hours, remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food locker, or place two pounds of dry ice inside the freezer for every cubic foot of interior volume. This will keep food frozen for two to four days.

Be sure to wear gloves to protect your hands from dry ice burns. If neither a food locker or dry ice is available, you should use or can your perishable food at once.

Troubleshooting

Understanding Sounds You May Hear

Your new appliance may make different sounds than your old one. Hard surfaces, such as the ceilings, walls, and cabinets around the unit can make these sounds seem louder. However, these sounds are normal and will soon become familiar; they indicate that your appliance is working properly.

Here are some of the noises you may hear and what they are:

• Freezer or refrigerator fresh food fan: sounds like air rushing or whirling

• Sealed system (evaporator and heat exchanger) refrigerant flow: sounds like gurgles, pops or boiling water

• Defrost heater: sizzles, hisses or pops

• Condenser fan: air rushes and whirls

• Compressor: has a high pitched hum or pulsating sound

• Ice maker valve hookup: buzzes when ice maker fills with water. This occurs whether or not the unit is connected to water supply. If the unit is not connected to water supply, stop sound by raising ice maker arm to off position (All

Freezer).

Troubleshooting

Most performance problems you might encounter with your appliance will be minor and you should be able to fix them yourself without tools.

Listed in these charts are the most common problems consumers run into with their appliances. Please read through this and see if it can solve your problem before calling for service.

Common Refrigerator Problems

PROBLEM

Unit will not operate

POSSIBLE CAUSE AND/OR REMEDY

Is the power cord plugged into a live circuit with the proper voltage? Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Is the power switch in the on position?

Unit makes unfamiliar sounds

Ice maker will not operate

(All Freezer)

Lights do not work

See “Understanding sounds you may hear” for descriptions of normal sounds and what makes them.

Is the freezer cold enough to make ice? It could take overnight for the freezer to reach the proper temperature. Is the signal arm in the on (down) position? Is the water valve turned on? Is water getting to the water valve? Check water line for leaks.

Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped?

Motor seems to run too long

Temperature display does not match set point

The motor naturally runs longer on hot days, if the room is too warm, if a large amount of food has been added, or if the doors are opened often.

Just plugged in unit, just put in hot food, opened the door for an extended time or frequently. Allow unit to stabilize for 24 hours.

PROBLEM

Ice crescents attached at corners

POSSIBLE CAUSE AND/OR REMEDY

Off-taste or odor in ice

• On/off lever is in the off (up) position. Lower

• lever to on (down) position.

Freezer is not cold enough. Adjust

temperature controls and wait 24 hours.

• New plumbing connections can cause discolored or off-flavored ice. Discard the first three harvests of ice.

• Cubes are stored too long. Throw them away and make a new supply.

• Food is not wrapped properly
