Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner & 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.
Clean the condenser coils regularly. Coils may need to be
cleaned as often as every other month. This may help save
energy.
Pull refrigerator out away from the wall. See "Unpack the
Refrigerator."
Vacuum coils when they are dusty or dirty.
Roll refrigerator back into place. Make sure to leave 1"
(2.5 cm) between the cabinet back and the wall.

If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep the door or
doors closed (depending on your model) to help food stay cold
and frozen.
If the power will be out for more than 24 hours, do one of the
following:
Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food locker.
Place 2 Ibs (907 g) of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic foot
(28 L) of freezer space. This will keep the food frozen for 2 to
4 days.
If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available, consume or can
perishable food at once.
REMEMBER:
A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods. If you see that food contains ice crystals, it may be
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected. If the
condition of the food is poor, dispose of it.
Vacations
If You Choose to Leave the Refrigerator
On While You're
Away:
1. Use up any perishables and freeze other items.
2. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Raise wire shutoff arm to OFF (up) position or move the
switch to the OFF (right) setting.
Shut off water supply to the ice maker.
3. Empty the ice bin.
If You Choose to Turn the Refrigerator
Off Before You
Leave:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
2. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position or move the switch to the OFF
(right) setting.
3. Depending on the model, turn the Temperature Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFR See "Using the Controls."
4. Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry well.
5. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both doors to prop
them open far enough for air to get in. This stops odor and
mold from building up.
