Energy-Saving Tips

• Let hot foods cool to room temperature
before placing in the unit. Overload-
ing the unit forces the compressor to
run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly
may lose quality or spoil.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly and
wipe containers dry before placing
them in the appliance. This cuts down
on frost build-up inside the unit.
• Appliance shelves and baskets should
not be lined with aluminum foil, wax
paper, or paper toweling. Liners inter-
fere with cold air circulation, making
the unit less efficient.
• Organize and label food to reduce door
openings and extended searches. Remove
as many items as needed at one time,
and close the door as soon as possible.
