Operation

WARNING
SOLUTIONS
Plug the power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not use an extension cord.
Make sure there is power to the outlet. Plug in a lamp to see if
the outlet is working.
Reset a tripped circuit breaker. Replace any blown fuses.
NOTE: If problems continue, contact an electrician.
Make sure the controls are turned on. See "Using the
Controls."
Allow 24 hours following installation for the refrigerator to cool
completely.
NOTE: Adjusting the temperature controls to the coldest
setting will not cool either compartment quicker.
This is normal. Larger, more efficient refrigerators run longer.
It is normal for the refrigerator to work longer under these
conditions. For optimum performance, place the refrigerator
in an indoor, temperature controlled environment. See
"Location Requirements."
Warm food will cause the refrigerator to run longer until the air
cools to the desired temperature.
Warm air entering the refrigerator causes it to run more. Open
the door less often.
Make sure the refrigerator is level. See "Door Closing and
Door Alignment." Keep food and containers from blocking the
door.
Adjust the refrigerator control to a less cold setting until the
refrigerator temperature is as desired. See "Using the
Controls."
Clean or change the gasket. Leaks in the door seal will cause
the refrigerator to run longer in order to maintain desired
temperatures.
