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).
The convertible vegetable/meat
drawer control comes preset at
the lowest meat setting.
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 left (less
cold). 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 storage of fresh, leafy vegetables.
Cool air from the freezer is directed to the refrigerator door bin
directly beneath the vents.
NOTE: The dairy compartment
and can rack are not associated
with the Chilled Door Bin feature.
Chilled Door Bin Control
The chilled door bin control is located on the left-hand side of the
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.
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed ice,
a rotating water dispenser faucet and pull-out tray, a special light
that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a lock option to
avoid unintentional dispensing.
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 lever 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 lever (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.
The display screen on the dispenser control panel has a
backlight, which will turn off automatically when the control
buttons have not been used for 30 seconds or more. When
the backlight is off, the first press of a control button will only
reactivate the backlight, without changing any settings. Within
30 seconds after the backlight has been reactivated,
additional presses of control buttons will change the
applicable settings.
