Energy saving tips.. .
You can help your refrigerator
us-e less electricity.
l
Check door gaskets for a tight seal. Level the cab-
inet to be sure of a good seal.
l
Clean the condenser
coil 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 foods orga-
nized 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.
l
Keep
the Power Saving
Control
on OFF unless
moisture forms on the 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.
