If you need service or
assistance, we suggest
you follow these five 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 opemte:
l
Is the electric cord plugged into a live circuit with
proper voltage? [See page 4.)
l
Have you checked
your home's main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l
Is the Refrigerator Control ON?
If there Is a mttllng or Jlngllng nolse or unfamiliar
sounds:
l
Is something
on fop or behind the refrigerator
making 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, or de-
frost water draining in the defrost pan.
If your Ice maker will not operate:
l
Has the freezer had enough time to get cold?
With a new refrigerator, this might take overnight.
l
Is the signal arm ON...in the down position?
l
Is the wafer valve turned on? Is wafer getting to
the ice maker?
If there Is water In the defrost pan:
l
This is normal in hot, muggy weather. The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator
is
level so the pan does not 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
info a live cir-
cuit with the proper voltage? (See page 4.)
If a bulb Is burned out:
l
See instructions for changing
light bulbs on page
6. Only use appliance
bulbs.
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
naturally runs longer.
l
If the door has been opened a lot, or if a large
amountof food has been put in,fhe 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
compartment.
All this means better refrigeration
and may require more running time than your old
one.
