piece bin. Eggs may be stored in the egg tray or loose in the bin.

your model does not have an egg storage bin, store eggs in their
original container on an interior shelf.

FREEZER FEATURES

Your model may have some or all of these features. Features that
can be purchased separately as product accessories are labeled
with the word "Accessory." Not all accessories will fit all models.

purchasing one of the accessories.
Freezer Shelf

To remove and replace the freezer shelf:
1. Remove items from the shelf.
2. Lift back of shelf over stop and slide shelf straight out.
3. Replace the shelf by sliding the back of the shelf into the
tracks on walls of cabinet.

Frozen food storage guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof), and the storage temperature. Seal the package
or container securely to prevent taste and odor transfer
throughout the product. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are
normal. This simply means that moisture in the food and air inside
the package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
12
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2-3 lbs of food per cubic foot [907-1,350 g
per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the freezer for air
to circulate around packages. Leave enough room for the door to
close tightly.
NOTE: For more information on preparing food for freezing, check
a freezer guide or reliable cookbook.

DOOR FEATURES

Your model may have some or all of these features. Features that
can be purchased separately as product accessories are labeled

end of the rails.

REFRIGERATOR CARE

Cleaning
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to prevent
odors from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tool
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
