Setting
the controls
Controls for the refrigerator and freezer are in the
refrigerator. To adjust a control, reach under the
console and turn the knob. When the refrigerator
is plugged in for the first time:
1. Set the Refrigerator Control to 4.
2. Set the Freezer Control to C.
Give the refrigerator time to cool down
completely before adding food. (This may take
several hours.)
These settings should be about right for normal
household refrigerator usage.
The controls will be set about right when milk
or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream
is firm.
Refrigerator Control adjustments range from
1 to 8. Freezer Control adjustments range from
A to D.
