Vacation
and moving
care
Short
vacations
No need to shut off the refrigerator if you will be away
for less than four weeks.

2. Freeze other items.

Long
vacations
If you will be gone a month or more:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
2. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
l
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least
one day ahead of time.
l
When the last load of ice drops, turn off the ice
maker. Make sure all ice is dispensed out of the ice
maker mechanism.
3. Unplug the refrigerator.
4. Clean it, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
5. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both
doors to prop them open far enough for air to get in.
This stops odor and mold from building up.
Suffocation
Hazard
Do not allow children
to climb on, play near,
or climb inside the refrigerator
when the doors
are blocked
open.
They may become injured
or trapped.
To restart refrigerator, see page 6.
Moving
When you are moving the refrigerator to a new home:
1. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
l
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least
one day ahead of time.
l
Disconnect the water line.
l
After the last load of ice drops, lift the signal arm
to the OFF (up) position.
2. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
3. Pack all frozen food in dry ice.
4. Unplug the refrigerator.
5. Clean it thoroughly.
Wipe and dry thoroughly.
6. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and
tape them together so they don't shift and rattle.
7. Screw in the leveling rollers.
8. Tape the doors shut and tape the power supply
cord to the cabinet.
When you get to your new home, put everything
back
and refer to page 5. Also, if your refrigerator has an
automatic ice maker, remember to reconnect the water
supply line (see page 13).
Power
interruptions
If electricity goes off, call the power company. Ask how
long power will be off.
1. If service will be interrupted 24 hours or less, keep
both doors closed. This helps food stay frozen.
2. If service will be interrupted longer than 24 hours:
(a) Remove all frozen food and store in a frozen
food locker.
OR
(b) Place 2 Ibs. (907 g) of dry ice in freezer for every
cubic foot (liter) of freezer space. This will keep
food frozen for two to four days. Wear gloves to
protect your hands from dry ice burns.
OR
(c) If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available,
use or can perishable food at once.
3.
A full freezer stays cold longer than a partly filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a
freezer full of baked goods. If food contains ice
crystals, it may be safely refrozen, although the
quality and flavor may be affected. If the condition
of the food is poor, or if you feel it is unsafe, dispose
of it.
