3. If your model has a touch screen display on the dispenser
panel, clean the screen using a soft, lint-free cloth. Mix a mild
detergent with water, then use the mixture to dampen the cloth
and gently wipe the screen.
To avoid unintentionally changing settings, make sure the
refrigerator is unplugged or the power is disconnected
before wiping the screen.
Do not over-saturate the cloth. Do not spray or wipe liquids
directly onto the screen. Do not use abrasive or harsh
cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers,
flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents,
nail polish remover, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products. Do not use paper towels, scouring
pads, or other harsh cleaning tools. These can scratch or
damage materials.
4. 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.
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 tools. These can scratch or
damage materials.
To help remove odors, you can wash interior walls with a
mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs to 1 qt
[26 g to 0.95 L] of water).
5. Determine whether your refrigerator exterior is painted metal,
Ultra Satin™ (stainless look) finish, brushed aluminum or
stainless steel, and choose the appropriate cleaning method.
NOTE: Ultra Satin™ (stainless look) finish has a smooth,
uniform color with a glossy finish that resists fingerprints.
Stainless steel has a distinct grainy texture with variation in
color that is natural to steel.
Painted metal: Wash exteriors with a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or
harsh cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless steel. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth. Additionally, to avoid damage to
painted metal exteriors, apply appliance wax (or auto paste
wax) with a clean, soft cloth. Do not wax plastic parts.
Brushed aluminum: Wash with a clean sponge or soft cloth and
a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh
cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless steel. Dry thoroughly
with a soft cloth.
Ultra Satin™ (stainless look) finish: Wash with a clean sponge
or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use
abrasive or harsh cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless
steel. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Stainless steel finish: Wash with a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or
harsh cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
To keep your stainless steel refrigerator looking like new
and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer's approved Stainless Steel
Cleaner and Polish. To order the cleaner, see "Accessories."
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come
into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If unintentional contact
does occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild
detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
6. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal home
operating environments. If the environment is particularly
greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in the home,
the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to 3 months to ensure
maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Remove the base grille. See "Base Grille" graphic or "Base
Grille" section.
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
7. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Changing the Light Bulbs

NOTE: Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the
bulb with an appliance bulb of the same size, shape, and wattage.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove the bulb from behind the control panel in the
refrigerator or from behind the light shield in the freezer (on
some models). Replace it with an appliance bulb of the same
wattage.
3. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Power Interruptions

If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep the door or doors
closed (depending on your model) to help food stay cold and
frozen.
If the power will be out for more than 24 hours, do one of the
following:
Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food locker.
Place 2 lbs (907 g) of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic foot
(28 L) of freezer space. This will keep the food frozen for 2 to
4 days.
If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available, consume or can
perishable food at once.
REMEMBER: A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods. If you see that food contains ice crystals, it may be
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected. If the
condition of the food is poor, dispose of it.
