Energy saving tips.. .
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.
Probable
Causes:
Your refrigerator
has two fans; you may hear the fan motors and moving air.
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.
When the ice maker is running, you may hear a buzzing [from the water valve),
trickling water and the clatter of ice dumped
into the bin.
Your refrigerator
has a high-efficiency
compressor
and motor. It will run longer
than older designs. It may even seem to run most of the time.
The SYSTEMS SENTINEL8 II Performance
Control Package
is designed
to make a
beeping
sound when something
is not as it should be, or when a control pad is
touched.
See pages 6 and 7 for more information.
You can help your refrigerator
use less electricity.
l
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cab-
inet 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 orga-
nized 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
overcrowd
it so air movement
is blocked.
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.
