and what to do when going on vacation, moving, or during a power outage.

LEANING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost auto-
matically. However, clean both sections about once a
month to prevent odors from building up. Wipe up spills
immediately.
To clean your refrigerator:
Unplug it.
Remove all removable parts from inside, such as
shelves, crispers, etc.
Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent
in warm water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
Hand wash, rinse, and dry all removable parts. Wash all
remaining surfaces, wipe thoroughly using clear water,
then dry.
