If you need service or assistance, we suggest
yob follow these four steps:
1.
Before calling for assistance...
Performance
problems
often result from little things
you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
If your refrigerator
will not operate:
l
Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live circuit
with the proper voltage?
(See page
4.)
l
Have you checked
your home's main fuses or circuit
breaker
box?
l
Is the Refrigerator
Control turned ON?
If there is a rattling or jingling noise, or other un-
familiar
sounds:
l
Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator
mak-
ing noise when the refrigerator
is running?
l
New features on your new refrigerator
make new
sounds. You may be hearing
air flowing
from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting
cycle,
defrost
water draining
Into the defrost pan.
If your ice maker will not operate:
l
Has the freezer had enough t/me to get cold? With a
new refrigerator,
this might take overnight
l
Is the signal arm ON. in the down position?
l
Is the water valve turned on? Is water getting
to the
Ice maker7
If there is water in the defrost pan:
l
In hot, muggy
weather, this is normal. The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator
is level so
the pan doesn't overflow.
If the light does not work:
l
Have you checked
your home's main fuses or circuit
breaker
box?
l
Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live circuit
with the proper voltage?
[See page
4.)
If a bulb is burned out:
l
See instructions for changing
light bulbs on page 6
Use appliance
bulbs only.
If the motor seems to run too much:
l
Is the condenser,
behind the refrigerator, free of dust
and lint?
l
On hot days, or if the room is warm, the motor natu-
rally 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 dif-
ferent 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 a frozen food compati-
ment. All this means better refrigeration
and may re-
quire more running time than your old one.
