warm water, wash, rinse and thoroughly dry stainless steel

To keep your stainless steel refrigerator looking like new
and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer's approved Stainless Steel
Cleaner and Polish, Part Number 4396920. To order the
cleaner, call 1-800-442-9991
U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777
Canada.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come
into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If unintentional contact
does occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild
detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
3. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
Clean the Condenser
There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal home
operating environments.
If the environment is particularly greasy
or dusty, or there is significant
pet traffic in the home, the
condenser should be cleaned every 2 to 3 months to ensure
maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove the base grille.
3. Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille, the
open areas behind the grille and the front surface area of the
condenser.
4. Replace the base grille when finished.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace the bulb with an appliance bulb of the same size, shape,
and wattage (no greater than 40 watts).
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Replace burned-out bulb(s) with appliance light bulb(s) no
greater than 40 watts.
3. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
