Sounds you may hear.. .
Your new refrigerator
may make sounds that your old one didn't.
Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned
about
them. Don't be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces like
the floor, walls and cabinets
can make the sounds seem louder.
The following
chart describes
the kinds of sounds that might be new
to you, and what may be making
them.
Possible Sounds:
l
Water Sounds:
Probable
Causes:
When the refrigerator
stops running, you may hear gurgling
in the tubing for a
few minutes after it stops. You may also hear defrost water running into the
defrost water pan.

Running
Sounds:
Your refrigerator
has a high-efficiency
compressor
and motor. It will run longer
than older desians. It may even seem to run most of the time.
Energy saving tips...
You can help your refrigerator
use less electricity
l
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cabi-
net to be sure of a good seal.
l
Clean the condenser
coil regularly
l
Open the door as few times as possible. Think about
what you need
before
you open
the door. Get
everything
out at one time. Keep foods organized
so you won't have to search
for what you want.
Close door as soon as food is removed.
l
Go ahead and fill up the refrigerator, but don't over-
crowd it so air movement
is blocked.
6
l
It is a waste of electricity
to set the refrigerator
and
freezer to temperatures
colder than they need to
be. If ice cream is firm in the freezer and drinks are
as cold as your family likes them, that's cold enough.
Q Keep
the Power Saving
Control
on OFF unless
moisture forms on the refrigerator
exterior
l
Make sure your refrigerator
is not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace, radi-
ator, or in direct sunlight.
