Using Your Refrigerator
Contmued
Sounds you may hear
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your
old one didn't. Because the sounds are new to
you, you might be concerned about them. Don't
be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces like the floor, walls and cabinets can
make the sounds seem louder.
The following describes the kinds of sounds
that might be new to you, and what may be
making them.
Slight hum, soft hiss:
You may hear the refrigerator's
fan motor and
moving air.
Clicking or snapping sounds:
The thermostat makes a definite click when the
refrigerator stops running. It also makes a sound
when the refrigerator starts running. The defrost
timer will click when the defrost cycle starts.
Water sounds:
When the refrigerator stops running, you may
hear gurgling in the tubing for a few minutes after
it stops. You may also hear defrost water running
into the defrost water pan.
Running sounds:
Your refrigerator has a high-efficiency
compres-
sor and motor. It will run longer than older
designs. It may even seem to run most of the
time.
Energy saving tips
You can help your refrigerator use less electricity.
l
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the
cabinet to be sure of a good seal.
l
Clean the condenser coils regularly.
l
Open the door as few times as possible. Think
about what you need before you open the door.
Get everything out at one time. Keep food
organized so you won't have to search for what
you want. Close door as soon as food is
removed.
l
Go ahead and fill up the refrigerator, but don't
overcrowd it so air movement is blocked.
l
It is a waste of electricity to set the refrigerator
and freezer to temperatures
colder than they
need to be. If ice cream is firm in the freezer and
drinks are as cold as your family likes them,
that's cold enough.
. Keep the Exterior Moisture Control in the OFF
position unless moisture forms on refrigerator
exterior.
l
Make sure your refrigerator is not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace,
radiator or in direct sunlight.
