ENSURING
PROPER AiR CiRCULATiON
in order to ensure proper temperatures,
air must flow
between the refrigerator
and freezer sections. As shown in
the illustration below, air enters at the top of the freezer and
circulates
down. From bottom
of the freezer, air is forced
up
to top of the refrigerator.
Air enters to the refrigerator
through
top vent, then circulates
and exists at the bottom,
where it
returns to the freezer.

Do not block any of the cool air vents with food
packages.
If the vents are blocked,
airflow
will be restricted
and
temperature
and moisture problems
may occur.
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
prevent odor transfer
and drying
out of food, wrap or cover
foods tightly.
(See the Food Storage Guide
section for details).
NOTE: If you close the refrigerator
door
forcefully,
the freezer
door may open and
close again
due to pressure from internal
air flow.
