The control center is located at the top front of the refrigerator
compartment.
Temperature Controls
For your convenience, your temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended
set points as shown.

IM PO RTAN1"."
The recommended
settings should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is
firm.
When the power is on, the temperature display shows the set
point temperature of the compartment.
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls 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.
To Turn Your Refrigerator
Off/On:
Press the freezer (+) touch pad repeatedly until "OFF" appears
in the freezer display. Allow a few seconds for the refrigerator
to shut off. Neither compartment
will cool.
Press either the refrigerator or freezer (-) touch pad to turn on
the refrigerator.
Adjusting Controls
The REFRIGERATOR control adjusts the refrigerator compartment
temperature. The FREEZER control adjusts the freezer
compartment
temperature.
If you need to adjust the temperature
in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment,
use the settings listed in the chart as a
guide.
To Adjust Set Point Temperatures:
The first touch of the (+) or (-) touch pad displays the current
temperature set point.
Press the (+) or (-) touch pads until the desired temperature
set point is displayed.

lowest temperature setting. Press the Max Ice feature touch

in the
refrigerator and freezer compartments
exceed normal operating
temperatures, the highest temperature reached will be displayed.
Press the Temp Alarm touch pad until the indicator light is lit,
to turn on this feature. Press and hold Temp Alarm for
3 seconds until the indicator light goes off to turn off this

alarm and alternating temperature displays. The Temp Alarm
light will continue to flash until the refrigerator returns to the
