Frozen Food Storage Guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
and the storage temperature.
Seal the package
or container securely to avoid taste and odor transfer throughout
the product. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are normal. This
simply means that moisture in the food and air inside the package
have condensed, creating ice crystals.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 Ibs of food per cubic foot [907 to
1,350 g per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the
freezer for air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave
enough room for the door to close tightly.
NOTE: For more information on preparing food for freezing, check
a freezer guide or reliable cookbook.
Your model may have some or all of these features. Features that
can be purchased separately as product accessories are labeled
with the word "Accessory." Not all accessories will fit all models.
See the "Assistance or Service" section if you are interested in
purchasing one of the accessories.

Explosion Hazard

or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both compartments
about once a month to avoid
build-up of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,

petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tool

surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.

sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth. For additional protection against
