The freezer should be located
in the coolest area of the room,
away from heat producing
appliances or heating ducts, and
out of direct sunlight.
Let hot foods cool to room
temperature before placing in the
freezer. Overloading the freezer forces the compressor
to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly may lose
quality or spoil.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers
dry before placing them in the freezer. This cuts down
on frost build-up inside the freezer.
Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil,
wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold
air circulation, making the freezer less efficient.
Organize and label food to reduce door openings and
extended searches. Remove as many items as
needed at one time, and close the door as soon as
possible.
COOL
DOWN
PERIOD
For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for the freezer
to cool down completely. The freezer will run continu-
ously for the first several hours. Foods that are already
frozen zen may be placed in the freezer after the first
few hours of operation. Unfrozen foods should NOT be
loaded into the freezer until the freezer has operated
for 4 hours.
When loading the freezer, freeze only 3 pounds of
fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at one time.
Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the
freezer. It is not necessary to turn the control knob to a
colder setting while freezing food.

The electromechanical

the freezer on upright models, and on the left exterior wall on
chest models (see figure 1). The temperature

to provide satisfactory food storage temperatures.
However, the
temperature control is adjustable to provide a range of tempera-
tures for your personal satisfaction. To adjust the temperature
setting, turn the temperature control knob clockwise or counter
clockwise. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize
between adjustments.
