ADJUSTING CONTROL S ETTINGS
Give the refrigerator
time to cool down completeJy
before
making final adjustments.
It is best to wait 24 hours before
doing
this. The initial settings mentioned
in SEETING THE
CONTROLS
section should be correct
for normal
household
refrigerator
use.
The refrigerator
control
functions
as the thermostat
for the
entire appliance
(refrigerator
and freezer sections). The colder
the setting, the longer the compressor
will run to keep the
temperature
colder. The freezer control
adjusts the cold air
flow from the freezer to the refrigerator.
Setting the freezer
control
to a lower temperature
keeps more cold air in the
freezer
compartment
to make it colder.
If you need to adjust temperatures
in the refrigerator
or
freezer, start by adjusting
the refrigerator.
Then wait 24 hours
before checking
the freezer temperature.
If it is too warm
or
too cold, then adjust the freezer
control.
Use the settings
listed in the chart below as a guide.
Always
remember
to wait
of least 24 hours between
adjustments.
