• In case of power failure, minimize door openings. If the
power failure is of a long duration, protect the food by
placing blocks of dry ice on top of the packages or check
with a local frozen foods locker about temporary storage. Frozen foods which have thawed completely should
not be refrozen.
• Any electrical service cord that becomes frayed or damaged should be immediately repaired or replaced. Never
unplug your appliance by pulling on the power cord.

Leveling
is Important
Toenhance
itsappearance
andtomaintain
efficient
perfor-
• Allow for a free flow of air through the front base grille,
mance, your refrigerator should be level.
• Install the refrigerator where the room temperature will
not go below 55° F. With temperatures below 55°, the
refrigerator will not run frequently enough to maintain
proper temperature in the freezer,
For refrigerators with 4 fixed wheels (models JTBI986,
JTB2186):
• Adjust the leveling screws beneath each front corner at
the base of the cabinet. Turn these leveling screws clockwise to raise a cabinet comer and counterclockwise to
lower a cabinet corner (see fig. 3).
• Allow a minimum 1/2" clearance on the sides, top and
back for ease of installation. If refrigerator is placed
with the door hinge side against a wall, you may want to
allow additional space so the door can be opened wider,
• Use caution when installing the unit on vinyl or hardwood floors so as not to mark or otherwise damage the
flooring. A piece of plywood, a rug or other material
should be used to protect the floor while positioning the
unit.
• If the floor is not level and it is necessary to raise the
rear of the cabinet, we suggest rolling the rear wheels
onto a piece of plywood or other shim material.
For all other models:
• Grasp both ends of the base griIle and pull straight out to
remove (see fig. 1).
• Adjust the wheels with a screwdriver or a 1/4" socket
(see fig. 2).
• To prevent the refrigerator from rolling, use the leveling/lock screws. (see fig. 3). To lock the cabinet in place,
turn down both leveling screws

Surfaces
At times, the front of the refrigerator cabinet may be warm
to the touch. This is a normal occurrence that helps prevent
moisture from condensing on the cabinet. The condition
will be more noticeable when you first start the refrigerator, during hot weather and after excessive or lengthy door
openings.
Energy
Saving
Tips
• Locate the refrigerator away from heat producing appliances such as the range or dishwasher, heat vents and
direct sunlight.
• Level the refrigerator and do not block ventilation
around the front grille.
• Keep the freezer full to near capacity so less cold air will
escape during door openings. When the freezer is less
than two-thirds full, place milk cartons half full of water
in the freezer.
• Let hot dishes cool slightly before putting into the
refrigerator or freezer.
• Cover liquids.
• Wipe moisture from the outside of containers before
placing them into the refrigerator.
• Avoid opening the doors too often.

Ice
Ice Cube Trays
Some models are equipped with ice cube trays and an ice
storage bin. To release the ice cubes from a tray, hold the
tray upside down over the bin and twist both ends.
Depending on the model, the ice bin either slides into rails
under an ice cube tray rack or stacks neatly on top of the ice
trays,
Automatic
Ice
Maker
• When the ice cubes are ejected it is normal for several
cubes to be joined together at the ends. They can easily be
broken apart. The ice maker will continue to make ice
until the supply of ice cubes raises the wire lever arm,
shutting the ice maker off.
• Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the
ice maker. The motor may have a slight hum, the cubes
•
•
•
•
•
r
• After your refrigerator has been hooked up to the water
supply, move the wire lever arm into the down position,
This will start its operation. The ice maker will fill with
water when the freezer reaches the proper temperature.
• It may be 8 to 12hours before the ice maker furnishes any
usable ice cubes. The first one or two batches will probably contain undersized and irregular cubes because of air
in the supply line.
[]
• The initial batch may also contain impurities from the
new water supply piping. Therefore, all cubes from the
first two or three batches should be discarded.
(optional)
Some models are automatic ice maker ready. The number of
the appropriate ice maker kit needed for installation into these
models appears on the data plate (see page 1). The kit contains installation instructions and water connection instructions.
Other models have a factory installed ice maker. The water
inlet tubing assembly required to complete the water connection to the water valve is located in a bag inside the refrigerator. Connect the ice maker to the water supply as instructed
in the separate instructions furnished with the refrigerator,

occasionally.
If the ice is not used frequently, the ice cubes will become
cloudy, shrink, stick together and taste stale. Empty the
ice storage bin periodically and wash it in lukewarm
water. Be sure to dry the bin before replacing it.
To remove the ice bin, pull it forward, away from the ice
maker. To avoid the ice maker dumping ice while the bin
is removed, turn the ice maker off by lifting the wire
lever.
To replace the ice bin, reverse the above procedure. Turn
the ice maker on by lowering the wire lever arm.
Beverage and foods should not be placed in the ice storage
bin for quick chilling. These items can block the wire lever
arm, causing the ice maker to malfunction.
Turn off (arm up) the ice maker whcn the water supply is
to be shut off for several hours.
For Your Safety
Do not place fingers or hands on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in. This
will help protect yon from possible injm),. It will also prevent interference with moving parts of the ejector mechanism and the heating element that releases the cubes.
Under certain rare circumstances, ice cubes may be discolored, usually appearing with a green-bhfish hue. The
cause of this unusual discoloration can be a combination
of }:actors such as certain characteristics of local waters,
household phnnbing and the acculnulation of copper salts
in an inactive water supply line which t_eds the ice maker.
Continued consumption of such discolored ice cubes may
be injurious to health. If such discoloration is obsel_.ed,
discard the ice cubes and contact your dealer to purchase
and install a water line filter.

Tips
Storage
• The fresh food compartment of a refrigerator should be
kept between 34°F and 40°F with an optimum temperature of 37°E To cheek the temperature, place an
appliance thermometer in a glass of water and place in
the center of the refrigerator. Check after "24hours. If
the temperature is above 40°F adjust the controls as
explained on page 5.
• Avoid overcrowding tlm refrigerator shelves. This
reduces the circulation of air around the h)od and
results in nneven cooling.
Fruits
and Vegetables
• Storage in the crisper drawers traps lnoistnre to help
preserve the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time
periods. (Refer to page 10).
Frozen
Food
Storage
• Tile freezer compartment ofa refrigerator should be
kept at 0°F or lower. To check the temperature, place
an appliance thermometer between the frozen packages and cheek after 24 hours. If the temperature is
above 0°K adjust the control as described on page 5.
• A freezer operates more efficiently when it is at least
two-thirds full.
Packaging
Foods
for Freezing
• To minimize dehydration and quality deterioration use
almninum foil, freezer wrap, freezer bags or airtight
containers. Force as much air out of the packages as
possible and be sure they are tightly sealed. Trapped air
can cause the food to dry out, change color and develop an offflavor (freezer burn).
• Sort fruits and vegetables before storage and use
brnised or soft items first. Discard those showing signs
• Overwrap fresh meats and poultry with suitahle freezer
wrap prior to freezing.
of decay.
• Always wrap odorous foods such as onions and cabbage
so the odor does not transfer to other foods.
• Do not refreeze
• While vegetables need a certain amount of moisture to
remain fresh, too much moisture can shorten storage
times (especially lettuce). Drain vegetables well be}bre
• Avoid adding to() nmeh warm food to the freezer at one

storing.
Meat
and Cheese
• }law meat and poultw should be wrapped securely so
leakage and contamination of other foods or surfaces
does not occur,
• Occasionally mold will develop on the surface of hard
cheeses (Swiss, Cheddar, Parmesan). Cut offat least an
inch around and below the moldy area. Keep your knife
or instrument out of the mold itself. The remaining
cheese will be satb and flavorful to eat. Do NOT t_ to
save individnal cheese slices, soft cheese, cottage
cheese, cream, sour cream or yogurt when mold
appears.
Dairy Food
• Most dairy, foods such as milk, yogurt, sour cream and
cottage cheese have freshness dates on their cartons for
appropriate length of storage. Store these foods in the
original carton and refrigerate immediately after purchasing and each use.
Loading

thawed.
the Freezer
• Leave space between the packages so cold air can circulate freely; allowing food to freeze as quickly as possible.
• Avoid storing hard-to-freeze foods such as ice cream
and orange juice on the freezer door shelves. These
foods are best stored in the freezer interior where the
temperature varies less with door openings.
