automatic
ice maker.. .
It is normal for ice crescents to be attached
by a
corner. They will break apart easily.
You will hear water runnina when ice maker is
working. You’ll hear ice fall%to the bin. Don’t let
these sounds bother you.
The ice maker will not operate until the freezer is
cold enough to make ice. This can take overnight.
Because of new plumbing
connections,
the first
ice may be discolored or off-flavored. Discard the
first few batches of ice.
If Ice is not being made fast enough and more ice
is needed, turn the Temperature Control toward a
higher number. Wait a day and, If necessary. turn
the Air Control toward A.
If you remove the Ice brn, raise the signal arm to
shut off the ice maker. When you return the bin,
push it all the way in and lower the arm to the ON
posrtion.
If cubes are stored too long, they may develop an
off-flavor...like
stale water. Throw them away. They
will be replaced.
Cubes In the ice brn can also
become smaller by evaporation.
The ice maker water supply should not be softened water. The chemicals could damage the ice
maker molds.

Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn’t.
Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned
about
them, Don’t be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like
the floor, walls and cabinets can make the sounds seem louder.
The following chart describes the kinds of sounds that might be new
to you, and what may be making them.

Energy saving tips.. .
You can help your refrigerator use less electrrcity.
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cabinet to be sure of a good seal.
l Clean
the condenser coil regularly
l 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 foods organized so you won’t have to search for what you
want. Close door as soon as food is removed.
l Go ahead
and fill up the refrigerator, but don’t
overcrowd it so air movement is blocked.
l
l
Cleaning
your refrigerator
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost
automatically.
But both should be cleaned
about
once a month to help prevent odors from building
up. Of course, spills should be wiped up right away
To clean your refrigerator, turn the Temperature
Control to OFF, unplug tt, take out all removable
parts, and clean it according
to the following
directrons.
l
l
It ISa waste of electrrcity to set the refrigerator and
freezer to temperatures
colder than they need to
be If ice cream IS firm in the freezer and drinks are
as cold as your famtly likes them, that’s cold
enough.
Keep the Power Saving Control on OFF unless
moisture forms on the refrigerator exterior.
Make sure your refrigerator IS not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace.
radiator, or in direct sunlight.

The freezer section ISdesrgned for storage of cornmercrally frozen foods and for freezrng foods at

Packaging ~-The secret of successful freezlng IS In
the packaging
The wrap you use must be arr.
moisture and vapor proof The way you close and seal
the package must not allow air, morsture or vapor In or
out Packagrng done In any other way could cause
food odor and taste transfer throughout
the refrrgerator and dry out of frozen food
Rrgrd polyethylene
[plastic) contarners wrth trghtfitting lids, straight-sided
canning
freezing tars.
heavy-duty alumrnum foil, plastic-coated
paper and
non-permeable
plastic wraps [such as Saran) are
recommended.
Note, Heat-sealed boiling bags are
easy to use and can be used by themselves or as
carton liners.
Sealing- When sealing foods In bags squeeze
out the air (lrqurds need headspace
to allow for
expansion ] Twist the top and turn It back Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tail Put the label
inside transparent bags, use selffadhesrve
label on
outside of opaque ones
over twice Finish package
and tape closed NOTE
With unboned meats, pad sharp edges wrth extra
wrap or use stockinette
to protect the wrap from
punctures
DO NOT USE:
Bread wrappers
l Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l Containers
without tight lids
l Waxed
paper
l Waxed-coated
freezer wrap
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
None of these are totally moisture, air or vapor
proof. The use of these wmpplws
could
cause food odor and taste transfer and
drying out of the frozen food.

Air-tight wrapping
calls for “drugstore” wrap. Cut
the sheet about one-third longer than the distance
around the fo&. Bring the ends together and fold In
(toward the food) at least twice to seal out arr. Crease
ends close to food, press arr from package
Fold tips
Freezing Fruits - Select ripe, blemish-free fruits
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to
3 quarts (liters) at a trme and drain. Fruit that stands
In water may lose food value and become, soggy
Sort, peel, trim, prt and slice as needed
Pack in rrgrd wade-mouthed
containers or other
recommended
material Leave head space to allow liquids to expand during freezing.
Freezing Vegetables - Freeze only fresh htghquality vegetables
picked when barely mature
For best results, freeze no more than 2 to 3 hours
after picking. Wash in cold water, sort and cut Into
appropriate
sizes. Blanch or scald. Pack in recommended container and freeze.
Do not freeze lettuce, celery. carrot sticks. potatoes or fresh tomatoes
All will become
limp or
mushy. Tomatoes will collapse when thawed
Freezing Cooked Food - Prepare cooked
foods as you would for the table, shorten cooking
time10 to15 minutes toallow for additional cooking
during reheating. Omit seasonings and part of the
liquid. Plan to add them at reheating time. Potatoes should also be added to soup and stew at
heating time Add crumb and cheese toppings at
heating time.
Cool as rapidly as possible and freeze at once.
Lrqurd or semi-lrqurd dishes may be frozen in recommended
containers with heod~spoce. Casseroles and other more solrd foods may be frozen in
the baking container. If you don’t want to leave
your casserole dash in the freezer, lrne It with foil.
Bake, cool, freeze, lift out the forI package,
bag it
and return to freezer.
Freezing Meats-The
meat you thaw can only
be as good as the meat you freeze “Drugstore”
wrap in meal-srze packages.
Flat cuts or pattres
should be wrapped
rndivrdually or In layers separated by a double thrckness of freezer wrap.
Make sure store wrappings are morsture and vapor proof If not, re-wrap meats wrth one of the
wraps recommended
under “Packaging”
Freezing Baked Goods-Wrap
baked breads
in recommended
material. Thaw in wrapping.
Unbaked yeast breads can be frozen after the first
rrsrng. Punch down. wrap and freeze
Bake cookies as usual Cool and freeze on trays,
then pack In recommended
freezer bags or cartons. Unbaked cookies may be dropped,
molded
or rolled and frozen on cookie trays Store in bag or
carton; bake without thawing.
Refrigerator-type
cookies can be wrapped
and frozen In roll form
Thaw only enough to slrce when ready to bake.
Fruit pies are best frozen unbaked. Bake without
thawing.
Bake pecan
and similar pies before
freezrnggrrch
fillings do not freeze solid Cut steam
vents in top crusts when ready to bake.

IMPORTANT: Do not expect your
freezer to quick-freeze
any large
quantlty of rood. Put no more unfrozen food Into the freezer than will
freeze wlthln 24 hours. (No more than
2 to 3 pounds of fresh meat or 3 to 4
pounds o? vegetables per cubic foot
of freezer space.) leave enough
space for air to circulate around
packages.
Be careful
to leave
enough room at the front so the door
can close tlghtly.

On hot days, or if the room is warm. the motor
naturally runs longer.
If the door has been opened a lot, or if a large
amount of food has been put in, the motor will run
longer to cool down the interior.
Remember: Motor running time depends on different things: number of door openings, amount of
food stored, temperature
of the room, settrng of the
controls.
And, your new refrigerator
may be larger than
your old one so it has more space to be cooled. It
also has a regular freezer instead of a frozen food
compartment.
All this means better refrigeration and
may require more running time than your old one.
