Adjusting Controls
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding
food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the
refrigerator. The settings indicated in the previous section should
be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls
are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when
ice cream is firm.
Turn the control right (clockwise) to make the compartment colder.
Turn the control left (counterclockwise) to make it less cold. To
turn the cooling system off, turn the Refrigerator Control
counterclockwise until it reaches the OFF position.
If you need to adjust temperatures in the refrigerator or freezer,
use the settings listed in the chart below as a guide. Wait at least
24 hours between adjustments.

Convertible Drawer Temperature Control

The control can be adjusted to properly chill meats or vegetables.
The air inside the pan is cooled to prevent "spot" freezing and can
be set to keep meats at the National Livestock and Meat Board
recommended storage temperatures of 28° to 32°F (-2° to 0°C).
The convertible vegetable/meat drawer control comes preset at
the lowest meat setting.
To store meat:
Set the control to one of the three MEAT settings to store meat at
its optimal storage temperature.
To store vegetables:
Set the control to VEG to store vegetables at their optimal storage
NOTE: If food starts to freeze, move the control to the left (less
cold). Remember to wait 24 hours between adjustments.

Crisper Humidity Control

(on some models)
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Adjust the control to any setting between LOW and HIGH.
LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with skins.
HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy vegetables.

Chilled Door Bin

(on some models)
Cool air from the freezer is directed to the refrigerator door bin
directly beneath the vents.
NOTE: The dairy compartment and can rack are not associated
with the Chilled Door Bin feature.

Slide the door chill control to the left to reduce the flow of cold
air to the bin and make it less cold.

Water and Ice Dispensers

(on some models)
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed ice,
a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a lock
option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system by dispensing water into a sturdy container until
you draw and discard 1.5 gal. (5.4 L) of water, or for
approximately 3 minutes after the water begins dispensing.
The flushing process cleans the water system and clears air
from the lines. As the air is cleared from the lines, water may
spurt out of the dispenser.
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
The Water Dispenser
IMPORTANT: Dispense enough water every week to maintain a
fresh supply.
To Dispense Water:
1. Press a sturdy glass against the water dispenser lever.
2. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
The Ice Dispenser
The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door is
open. Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer
when the dispenser lever is pressed.
NOTE: Some models dispense both cubed and crushed ice.
Before dispensing ice, select which type of ice you prefer.
For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before being dispensed. This
may cause a slight delay when dispensing crushed ice. Noise
from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size.
When changing from crushed to cubed, a few ounces of crushed
ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.
