Care & Cleaning
Protecting Your Investment
Keeping your appliance clean maintains its
appearance and prevents odor build-up.
Wipe up any spills immediately and clean
the compartments at least twice a year.
Do not use abrasive cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids,
cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents,
bleaches, or cleansers containing petroleum
products on plastic parts, interior doors,
gaskets, or cabinet liners. Do not use paper
towels, scouring pads, or other abrasive
cleaning materials.
• Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes,
abrasive cleaners, or strong alkaline
solutions on any surface.
• Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with
bleach to clean stainless steel.
• Do not wash any removable parts in
a dishwasher.
• Always unplug the electrical power cord
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
If you set your temperature controls to
turn off cooling, power to lights and other
electrical components will continue until you
unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
• Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do
not use razor blades or other sharp
instruments which can scratch the
appliance surface.
• Do not remove the serial plate. Removal
of your serial plate voids your warranty.
• Before moving your appliance, raise the
anti-tip brackets so the rollers will work
correctly. This will prevent the floor from
being damaged.
• Pull the freezer straight out to move
it. Shifting it from side to side may
damage flooring. Be careful not
to move the freezer beyond the
plumbing connections.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal
surfaces. Do not touch cold surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
If you store or move your freezer in
freezing temperatures, be sure to
completely drain the water supply system.
Failure to do so could result in water
leaks when the freezer is put back into
service. Contact a service representative
to perform this operation.
