Using the Controls
Temperature Control Adjustment and Cooling On/Off
The refrigerator and freezer control buttons are located on the
dispenser panel.
To turn cooling off, press and hold the LOCK and FAST ICE/COOL
buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. Press and hold LOCK
and FAST ICE/COOL again to turn cooling on. Your refrigerator
and freezer will not cool when cooling is off.
IMPORTANT: To avoid unintentionally locking the dispenser
or changing other settings, be sure to press both buttons at
exactly the same time.
For your convenience, your refrigerator and freezer controls are
preset at the factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make
sure that the controls are still set to the "mid-settings."
To view set points, press the TEMPERATURE button on your
dispenser panel. The factory recommended set points are
0°F (-18°C) for the freezer and 37°F (3°C) for the refrigerator.
Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the set points to a higher (colder) than
recommended setting will not cool the compartments any
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.
The preset settings 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.
Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments. Recheck the
temperatures before other adjustments are made.
The display screen on the dispenser control panel has a
backlight, which will turn off automatically when the control
buttons have not been used for 30 seconds or more. When
the backlight is off, the first press of a control button will only
reactivate the backlight, without changing any settings. Within
30 seconds after the backlight has been reactivated,
additional presses of control buttons will change the
applicable settings.
