REFRIGERATOR CARE

Cleaning

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to prevent
odors from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove all removable parts from inside, such as shelves,
crispers, etc.
3. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning
waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers
containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior
and door liners or gaskets. Do not use paper towels,
scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools. These can
scratch or damage materials.
To help remove odors, you can wash interior walls with a
mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs. to 1 qt.
[26 g to 0.95 L] of water).
4. Determine whether your refrigerator exterior is painted metal,
brushed aluminum or stainless steel and choose the
appropriate cleaning method.
Painted metal: Wash exteriors with a clean sponge or soft
cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive
or harsh cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless steel.
Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. For additional protection
against damage to painted metal exteriors, apply appliance
wax (or auto paste wax) with a clean, soft cloth. Do not wax
plastic parts.
Brushed aluminum: Wash with a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or
harsh cleaners, or cleaners designed for stainless steel. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Stainless steel finish: Wash with a clean sponge or soft
cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive
or harsh cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
To keep your stainless steel refrigerator looking like new
and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer's approved Stainless Steel
Cleaner & Polish.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
