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 avoid
buildup of odors. 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.
For stainless steel models, stainless steel is corrosion-
resistant and not corrosion-proof. To help avoid corrosion of
your stainless steel, keep your surfaces clean by using the
following cleaning instructions.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, muriatic acid,
cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers
containing petroleum products on exterior surfaces (doors and
cabinet), 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. Clean the exterior surfaces.
Painted metal: Wash painted metal exteriors with a clean,
soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent in warm water.
Rinse surfaces with clean, warm water and dry immediately to
avoid water spots.
Stainless steel: Wash stainless steel surfaces with a clean,
soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent in warm water.
Rinse surfaces with clean, warm water and dry immediately to
avoid water spots.
NOTE: When cleaning stainless steel, always wipe in the
direction of the grain to avoid cross-grain scratching.
4. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments. If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to
3 months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Remove the base grille.
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
