Fruit & Vegetable Drawers
The top two storage drawers at the
bottom of the fresh food compartment
are designed to provide high humidity
levels required by most vegetables
and lower humidity levels required
for most fruits.
When replacing the drawers, always
push them all the way in.
Storage time will depend upon the type
of food and its condition when placed in
the drawers.
Excess water that may accumulate in the
bottom of the drawers should be emptied
and the drawers wiped dry.
High Humidity
Setting the drawer for high humidity keeps unwrapped foods fresh by
retaining the natural moisture content of foods such as:
• Artichokes
• Celery
• Asparagus
• Cherries
• Beets, topped
• Corn
• Blueberries
• Currants
• Carrots
• Greens, leafy
As in any refrigerated storage area, it is recommended that foods with
strong odors be stored wrapped—foods such as:
• Broccoli
• Cabbage
• Brussels sprouts • Cauliflower
The high humidity setting also works well for the convenient storage
of lunch meats, cheese, hors d'oeuvres, spreads and snacks.
Convertible Meat Drawer
The Convertible Meat Drawer has its own cold air duct to allow
a stream of cold air from the freezer compartment to flow around
the drawer.
The variable temperature control regulates the air flow from the
freezer compartment.
Set control lever down to the
coldest setting to store fresh meats.
If lever is left in meat position for
a long period of time, some
frost may form on the inside
of the drawer.
Set control lever up to convert
the drawer to normal refrigerator
temperature and provide extra
vegetable storage space. Cold air
duct is turned off. Variable settings
between these extremes can be selected.

humidity levels recommended for
