Opening and Closing Doors
(French door models)
There are two refrigerator compartment doors. The doors can be
opened and closed either separately or together.
There is a vertically-hinged seal on the left refrigerator door.
When the left side door is opened, the hinged seal
automatically folds inward so that it is out of the way.
When both doors are closed, the hinged seal automatically
forms a seal between the two doors.

Using the Controls
The temperature controls are located at the top front of the
refrigerator or freezer compartments.
Temperature Controls
For your convenience, the temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended setting as shown.
Style 1
Recommended Setting "4"
Style 2
Recommended Setting "4"
The recommended setting should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is


Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
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 before adjusting the controls.
To Turn Off/On:
Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a
dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays.
Neither compartment will cool.
Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word OFF. Neither
compartment will cool when the freezer is set to OFF.
Humidity Control (on some models)
The humidity control turns on a heater to help reduce moisture on
the door hinge seal. Use in humid environments or when you
notice moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more
energy when Humidity Control is on.
Press the control to ON when the environment is warm and
more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.
Press the control to OFF to save energy when the environment
is less humid.
Adjusting Controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment, use the settings listed in the chart below as
a guide.
For (Style 1) controls press the up or down arrow touch pads, or
for (Style 2) controls turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control
more than one setting at a time. Wait 24 hours between
adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.
