Adjusting Controls
The mid-settings indicated in the previous section should be
correct for normal household usage. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is
firm.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures, use the settings listed in the
chart below as a guide. On models with two controls, adjust the
refrigerator temperature first. Wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments and then recheck the temperatures.
CONDITION/REASON:
REFRIGERATOR too warm
FREEZER too warm/too
little ice
REFRIGERATOR too cold
FREEZER too cold

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.

Ice Maker

Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
Ice Production Rate
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
The ice maker should produce approximately 8 to 12 batches
of ice in a 24-hour period.

To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See "Using the Controls." Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
For maximum ice production (on some models), push the
switch to ICE PLUS. The ice maker should produce 16 to
20 batches of ice in a 24-hour period in the Ice Plus mode.
Remember
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained.
Do not use anything sharp to break up the ice in the bin. This
can cause damage to the ice container and the dispenser
mechanism.
Do not store anything on top of or in the ice maker or ice bin.

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 keep odors
from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: 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.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. 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.
3. Wash painted metal exteriors with a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft
cloth.
4. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
