Energy-Saving Tips

• Level the unit so the doors close tightly.
• Do not overcrowd the unit or block cold
air vents. Doing so causes the appliance
to run longer and use more energy.
Shelves should not be lined with aluminum
foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners
interfere with cold air circulation, making
the appliance less efficient, which could
cause food spoilage.
• Cover foods and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the unit. This cuts
down on moisture build-up inside the unit.
• Organize and label food to reduce door
openings and extended searches. Remove
as many items as needed at one time,
and close the door as soon as possible.
• The appliance should
be located in the
coolest area of the
room, away from
heat producing
appliances or heating
ducts, and out of
direct sunlight.
