STAINLESS STEEL MAINTENANCE AND ENERGY SAVING TIPS

Background

Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel, but it is not stain or corrosion proof. Stainless steels can discolor or corrode if not maintained properly.

Note: Stainless steel products should never be installed, or stored in close proximity to chlorine chemicals.

Stainless steels differ from ordinary carbon steels by the amount of chromium present. It is this chromium that provides an invisible protective film on the surface called chrome-oxide. This protective chrome-oxide film on the surface can be damaged or contaminated, which may result in discoloration, staining, or corrosion of the base metal.

Whichever cleaning product you chose, it should be used in strict accordance with the instructions of the cleaner manufacturer.

Energy saving tips:

The following suggestions will minimize the cost of operating your refrigeration appliance.

Care & Cleaning

Routine cleaning of the stainless steel surfaces will serve to greatly extend the life of your product by removing contaminants. This is especially important in coastal areas which can expose the stainless to severe contaminants such as halide salts, (sodium chloride).

It is strongly recommended to periodically inspect and thoroughly clean crevices, weld points, under gaskets, rivets, bolt heads, and any locations where small amounts of liquid could collect, become stagnant, and concentrate contaminates. Additionally, any mounting hardware that is showing signs of corrosion should be replaced.

Frequency of cleaning will depend upon the installation location, environmental, and usage conditions.

Choosing a Cleaning Product

The choice of a proper cleaning product is ultimately that of the consumer, and there are many products from which to choose. Depending upon the type of cleaning and the degree of contamination, some products are better than others.

Typically the most effective and efficient means for routine cleaning of most stainless steel products is to give the surfaces a brisk rubbing with a soft cloth soaked in warm water and a gentle detergent, or mild mixture of ammonia. Rubbing should, to the extent possible, follow the polish lines of the steel, and always insure thorough rinsing after cleaning.

Although some products are called "stainless steel cleaners," some may contain abrasives which could scratch the surface, (compromising the protective chrome-oxide film), and some many contain chlorine bleach which will dull, tarnish or discolor the surface if not completely removed.

1. Do not install your appliance next to a hot appliance

(cooker, dishwasher, etc.), heating air duct, or other heat sources.

2. Install product out of direct sunlight.

3. Ensure the front grille vents at front of appliance beneath door are not obstructed and kept clean to allow ventilation for the refrigeration system to expel heat.

4. Plug your appliance into a dedicated power circuit. (Not shared with other appliances).

5. When initially loading your new product, or whenever large quantities of warm contents are placed within refrigerated storage compartment, minimize door openings for the next 12 hours to allow contents to pull down to compartment set temperature.

6. Maintaining a relatively full storage compartment will require less appliance run time than an empty compartment.

7. Ensure door closing is not obstructed by contents stored in your appliance.

8. Allow hot items to reach room temperature before placing in product.

9. Minimize door openings and duration of door openings.

10. Use the warmest temperature control set temperature that meets your personal preference and provides the proper storage for your stored contents.

11. When on vacation or away from home for extended pe-

riods, set the appliance to warmest acceptable tem-

perature for the stored contents.

12. Set the control to the “off” position if cleaning the

appliance requires the door to be open for an extended

period of time.

After the stainless surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, a good quality car wax may be applied to help maintain the finish.

14

DOOR ALIGNMENT

Door alignment:

The door should be parallel to the sides and top of the appliance. If alignment is necessary the door may be adjusted by loosening the 2 screws which secure the door adjustment bracket on the bottom of the door (see Figure 13a) and adjusting the door side to side. Use a

5

32

” allen wrench for this procedure. (See Figure 13 below). When finished aligning the door, tighten the screws securely.

Figure 13

Door should be parallel to top and sides of the appliance.
