Dual Evaporator (on some models)
Some models come equipped with a dual sequential evaporation
system, which includes two separate evaporators for the
refrigerator and freezer compartments.
Dual evaporation results in higher humidity, which helps keep
foods in the refrigerator from spoiling as quickly and improves
food quality and freshness in the freezer due to decreased freezer
burn. In addition, the dual evaporation system helps keep food
smells in the refrigerator from transferring to ice in the freezer.
NOTE: The dual evaporation system is always activated when
your refrigerator is operating. You do not need to press any
buttons to turn it on.
The control can be adjusted to properly chill meats or vegetables.
The air inside the pan is cooled to avoid "spot" freezing and can
be set to keep meats at the National Livestock and Meat Board
storage temperatures
of 28 ° to 32°F (-2 ° to 0°C).
To store meat:
Set the control to one of the three MEAT settings to store meat at
its optimal storage temperature.
To store vegetables:
Set the control to VEG to store vegetables at their optimal storage
NOTE: If food starts to freeze, move the control to the right (less
cold), toward the VEG setting. Remember to wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Adjust the control to any setting between LOW and HIGH.
LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with skins.
HIGH (closed) for best
of fresh,
leafy vegetables.

refrigerator compartment.
A. Chilled door bin control
Slide the door chill control to the left to reduce the flow of cold
air to the bin and make it less cold.
Slide the door chill control to the right to increase the flow of
cold air to the bin and make it colder.
IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy
container to depress and hold the water dispenser pad for
5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing
and releasing the dispenser pad (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off)
until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air
from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the
water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some
households. As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt
out of the dispenser.
The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced. Wait 72 hours for full ice
