ENERGY SAVING TIPS

• Install the refrigerator in the coolest part of the room,
out of direct sunlight and away from heating ducts or
registers. Do not place the refrigerator next to heat-
producing appliances such as a range, oven or
dishwasher.
• Level the refrigerator so the doors close tightly.
• Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air
vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer
and use more energy. Shelves should not be lined with
aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners
interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator
less efficient, which could cause food spoilage.
• Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing
them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on moisture
build-up inside the unit.
• Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings.
Remove as many items as needed at one time and
close the door as soon as possible.

SETTING THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL

COOL DOWN PERIOD
For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for the refrigerator to
cool down completely. The refrigerator will run continuously
for the first several hours.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The temperature control is located inside the refrigerator
compartment. The temperature is
factory preset to provide satisfac-
tory food storage temperatures.
However, the temperature control is
adjustable to provide a range of
temperatures for your personal
satisfaction. If a colder temperature
is desired, turn the temperature
control knob toward COLDEST and
allow several hours for temperatures
to stabilize between adjustments.

REFRIGERATOR FEATURES

To replace the light bulb, turn the temperature control to
