Adjusting the Controls
For your convenience, your refrigerator and freezer controls are
preset at the factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make
sure that the controls are still set to the "mid-settings."
The factory
recommended
set points are 37°F (3°C) for the refrigerator and
0°F (-18°C) for the freezer.
IM PO RTAN1"."
Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the set points to a colder than
recommended
setting will not cool the compartments
any
faster.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not
blocked before adjusting the controls.
The preset settings should be correct for normal household
usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as
cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments.
Recheck the
temperatures
before other adjustments
are made.
To view and adjust the set points, press and hold the
TEMPERATURE button for 3 seconds. When adjust mode is
activated, adjusting information will appear on the display screen.

the set point.
When you have finished viewing (and adjusting if desired) the
refrigerator set point, press TEMPERATURE to change the
display to show the freezer set point. When the zone has been
changed, "FREEZER" appears on the display screen.
Press LOCK to raise the set point, or press OPTIONS to lower
the set point.
When you have finished viewing (and adjusting if desired) both
the refrigerator and freezer set points, press MEASURED FILL
to save the settings.

Additional Features
Max Cool and Max Ice

To turn on the Max Cool feature, press the OPTIONS button to
enter Options mode, then press OPTIONS again to activate
the feature. The Max Cool icon will appear on the dispenser
display.

the previous temperature set points.
NOTE: If increased ice production
is desired at all times, change
the freezer control to a lower setting. Setting the freezer to a
colder temperature
may make some foods, such as ice cream,
harder.
