If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these five steps:
1.
Before calling for assistance...
If the motor
seems to run too much:
l
Is the condenser, behind the base grille, free of
dust and lint?
Performance
problems
often result from little
things you can find and fix yourself without tools of
any kind.
If your refrigemtor
will not operate:
l
Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live
circuit with the proper voltage? (See page 4.)
l
Have you checked
your home's main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l
Is the Refrigerator Control ON?
If there
is a mttling
or jingling
noise,
or other
unfamiliar
sounds:
l
Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator
making noise when the refrigerator is running?
l
New features on your new refrigerator make new
sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, defrost
water draining into the defrost pan.
If your ice maker
will not opemte:
l
Has the freezer had enough time to get cold?
With a new refrigerator, this might take overnight.
l
Is the signal arm ON...in the down position?
l
Is the water valve turned on? Is water getting to
the ice maker?
If there is water
in the defrost
pan:
l
In hot, muggy weather, this is normal. The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator
is
level so the pan doesn't overflow.
If the light does not work:
l
Have you checked
your home's main fuses or
circuit breaker?
l
Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live
circuit with the proper voltage? (See page 4.)
If the bulb is burned
out:
l
See instructions for changing
light bulbs on page
6. Only use appliance
bulbs.
l
On hot days, or if the room is warm, the motor
naturally runs longer.
l
If the door has been opened a lot, or if a large
amount of food has been put in, the motor will
run longer to cool down the interior.
Remember:
Motor running time depends on dif-
ferent things: number of door openings, amount of
food stored, temperature of the room, setting of the
controls.
And, your new refrigerator may be larger than
your old one so it has more space to be cooled. It
also has a regular freezer instead of a frozen food
compartment.
All this means better refrigeration
and may require more running time than your old
one.
