problems
often result from little things
you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
If your refrtgerator
will not operate:
l
Is the electric cord plugged
in?
l
Is a fuse blown or a circuit breaker tripped?
l
Is the Refrigerator
Control turned ON?
If there
Is a rattling
or jingling
noise,
or other
unfamiliar
sounds:
l
Is something
on top or behind the refrigerator
mak-
ing 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.

into the defrost pan.
If there Is water
in the detrost
pan:

In hot, muggy weather, this is normal. The pan can
even be full. Make sure the refrigerator
is level so the

bulbs only.
It the motor seems to run too much:
l
Is the condenser,
behind
the refrigerator,
free of
dust and lint?
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 trme 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.
