Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used CFCs or HCFCs (chlorofluorocarbons or hydrochlorofluorocarbons). CFCs and HCFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone if released to the atmosphere. Other refrigerants may also cause harm to the environment if released to the atmosphere.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a qualified technician. If you intentionally release refrigerant, you may be subject to fines and imprisonment under provisions of environmental legislation.

Destroy or recycle the carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after the refrigerator is unpacked. Children should never use these items to play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
Proper Disposal of your Refrigerator or Freezer
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators or freezers are still dangerous – even if they will sit for "just a few days". If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.
Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers
We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/disposal methods. Check with your utility company or visit www.energystar.gov/recycle for more information on recycling your old refrigerator.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator/freezer:
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety mechanisms in this refrigerator will operate properly.
Features may vary according to model
This Use & Care Guide provides general operating instructions for your model. Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before starting the refrigerator, follow these important first steps.
Do not install the refrigerator where the surrounding air temperature may fall to 50°F (10°C) or below. The refrigerator compartment contents may freeze. Do not install the refrigerator where the surrounding air temperature may reach 110°F (43°C) or above. The refrigerator and freezer compartments may rise to above normal operating temperatures.
Do not block the lower front of your refrigerator. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the proper operation of your refrigerator. Installation Installation clearances
Guidelines for final positioning of your refrigerator:
To level the cabinet using the front leveling feet:
NOTE: The direction in which your refrigerator doors open (door swing) can be reversed, from left to right or right to left, by moving the door hinges from one side to the other. Reversing the door swing should be performed by a qualified person.
Before you begin, turn the refrigerator temperature control to "OFF" and remove the electrical power cord from the wall outlet. Remove any food from door shelves.
Cool Down Period
For best performance, allow 4 hours for the refrigerator to cool down completely. The refrigerator will run continuously for the first several hours.
The temperature control is located inside the refrigerator compartment of the unit. The temperature is factory preset to provide satisfactory food storage temperatures. However, the temperature control is adjustable to provide a range of temperatures for your personal satisfaction.
To adjust the temperature colder, turn the control knob toward the higher number setting. After each movement, allow 24 hours for the unit to adjust. If the unit is still not cold enough, repeat until desired temperature is achieved. After each movement of the control knob, allow the unit to adjust for 24 hours.
To adjust the temperature warmer, turn the control knob toward the lower number setting. After each movement, allow 24 hours for the unit to adjust. If the unit is still not warm enough, repeat until desired temperature is achieved. After each movement of the control knob, allow the unit to adjust for 24 hours.
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping. Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid dropping.
Refrigerator shelves are easily adjusted to suit individual needs. Before adjusting the shelves, remove all food.
To adjust shelves:
Door bins, shelves, and racks are provided for convenient storage of jars, bottles, and cans. Frequently used items can be quickly selected. The dairy compartment, which is warmer than the general food storage section, is intended for short term storage of cheese, spreads, or butter.
The Freeze Control feature will maintain proper interior refrigerator temperature even when the refrigerator is placed in an area where the surrounding temperature drops down to 10°F (-12°C).
The light comes on automatically when the door is opened. To replace the light bulb, turn the temperature control to OFF and unplug the electrical cord. Replace the old bulb with a bulb of the same wattage.
The crisper, located under the bottom refrigerator shelf, is designed for storing fruits, vegetables, and other fresh produce. Wash items in clear water and remove excess water before placing them in the crisper. Items with strong odors or high moisture content should be wrapped before storing.
