Care & Cleaning
Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning. Keep your refrigerator and freezer clean
to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up any spills immediately and clean both sections at least twice a year. Never use any type
of scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash any removable parts
in a dishwasher.
-
When moving the refrigerator,
pull straight
out. Do not shift the refrigerator
from side to side as this
may tear or gouge the floor covering,
if the refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker, be careful not to
move the refrigerator
beyond the plumbing connections.
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces.
Do not touch refrigerated
surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
=
To avoid damage and help the refrigerator
run as efficiently as possible, clean the condenser
periodically.
Never use CHLORIDE to clean stainless steel.
NOTES:
Turning the refrigerator temperature control to "0" turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect electrical
power to the light bulb or other electrical components.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface when removing
adhesive labels. Any glue left from tape or labels can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent, or. touch the glue residue with the sticky side of tape you have already removed. Do not remove the
serial plate.
