You will hear water running when ice maker is
working. You’ll hear ice fall into the bin. Don’t let
these sounds bother you.

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 fasi 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 bin, raise the signal arm tc

Good water quality is important forgood ice quality.
It is not recommended
that the ice maker be connected to a softened water supply Water softener
chemicals such as salt from a malfunctioning
softener can damage the ice maker mold and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, then it is important that the water softener be well maintained and operating properly.

FREEZING& STORING FROZEN
FOODS
3
The freezer section is designed for storage of commercially
frozen foods and for freezing foods at
home.
Packaglng -The secret of successful freezing is in
the packaging.
The wrap you use must be air,
moisture and vapor proof. The way you close and seal
the package must not allow air, moisture or vapor in or
out Packaging done in any other way could cause
food odor and taste transfer throughout
the refrigerator and drying of frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene
(plastic] containers with tightfitting lids, straight-sided
canning/freezing
jars,
heavy-duty aluminum 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 cr as
carton liners.
Seallng- When sealing foods in bags squeeze
to allow for
out the alr [liquids need headspace
expansion.) Twist the top and turn it back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tail. Put the label
inside transparent bags; use self-adhesive
label on
outside of opaque ones.
Air-tight wrapping calls for “drugstore” wrap. Cut
the sheet about one-third ionger than the distance
around the food. Bring the ends together and fold in
(toward the food) at least twice to seal out air. Crease
ends close to food, press air from package.
Fold tips
6
over twice. Finish package
and tape closed. NOTE:
With unboned meats, pad sharp edges with 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 wrappings could
l
cause food odor and taste tmnsfer and
drying of frozen food.
Freezlng Fruits - Select ripe, blemish-free fruits.
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to
3 quarts [liters) at a time and drain. Fruit that stands
in water may lose food value and become, soggy.
Sort, peel, trim, pit and slice as needed.
Pack in rigid wide-mouthed
containers or other
recommended
material. Leave head space to allow liquids to expand during freezing.

Is the condenser, behind the base grille, free of dust
and lint?
l On hot days, or if the room is worm, the motor naturally runs longer.
l 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, setting 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 Q frozen food comportment. All this means better refrigeration and may require more running time than your old one.
