ADJUSTABLE DOOR BINS
Some models have adjustable door bins that can be moved to
suit individual needs.
To move door bins
1.
Lift bin straight up.
2.
Remove bin.
3.
Place bin in desired
position.
4.
Lower bin onto supports
until locked in place.
DELI DRAWER (SOME
MODELS)
Some models are equipped
with a Deli Drawer for storage
of luncheon meats, spreads,
cheeses, and other deli items.
CRISpERS (SOME
MODELS)
The crispers, located under
the bottom refrigerator shelf,
are designed for storing fruits,
vegetables, and other fresh
produce. Wash items in clear
water and remove excess
water before placing them in
the crispers. Items with strong
odors or high moisture content
should be wrapped before
storing.
HUMIDITY CONTROL (SOME MODELS)
The Humidity Control, present on some models with crisper
drawers, allows you to adjust the humidity within the crisper. This
can extend the life of fresh vegetables that keep best in high
humidity.
note
Leafy vegetables keep
best when stored with the
Humidity Control set on High
Humidity, or in a drawer
without a Humidity Control.
This keeps incoming air to
a minimum and maintains
maximum moisture content.

FOOD STORAGE IDEAS
Fresh Food Storage
The fresh food compartment should be kept between 34° F
and 40° F with an optimum temperature of 37° F.

Crisper
Humidity Control
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves. This reduces
the circulation of air around the food and results in uneven
cooling.
Fruits and vegetables
Storage in the crisper drawers traps moisture to help
preserve the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time
periods.
Meat
Raw meat and poultry should be wrapped securely so
leakage and contamination of other foods or surfaces does
not occur.
ENERGY SAvING IDEAS
Locate 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. If this is not possible, a
section of cabinetry or an added layer
of insulation between the two appliances will help the
refrigerator operate more efficiently.
Level the refrigerator so that the door closes tightly.
Refer to the "SETTING THE TEMpERATURE CONTROL"
section for the suggested temperature control settings.
Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air vents.
Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer and use
more energy.
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.
vACATION AND MOvING TIpS
Short Vacations:
Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of less
than three weeks.
Long Vacations:
If the refrigerator will not be used for several months:
Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
Leave the refrigerator door open slightly, blocking it open if
necessary, to prevent odor and mold growth.
Moving: When moving the refrigerator , follow these
guidelines to prevent damage:
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the refrigerator .
Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets, and
shelves by taping them securely in place to prevent
damage.
In the moving vehicle, secure refrigerator in an upright
position to prevent movement. Also protect outside of
refrigerator with a blanket, or similar item.
