Using Your Refrigerator
To obtain the best possible results from your refrigerator, it is important that you operate it properly. This section
tells you how to set the controls, remove and adjust the features in your refrigerator, and how to save energy.
Setting
the controls
Controls for the refrigerator and freezer are in the
refrigerator. When you plug in the refrigerator for the
first time:
1. Set the Refrigerator
Control
to 3 (Recommended
Setting).
Refrigerator Control settings range from
1 (warmest) to 5 (coldest).
2. Set the Freezer Control
to 3 (Recommended
Setting).
Freezer Control settings range from
1 (warmest) to 5 (coldest).
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely
before adding food. This may take several hours.
The settings indicated above should be correct for
normal, household
refrigerator usage. The controls are
set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like
and when ice cream is firm. If you need to adjust these
settings, see "Changing the control settings" below.
