About the temperature controls.
Not all features are on all models. Your controls may be similar to the following
The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37°F for the refrigerator compartment and 0°F for the
freezer compartment. Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended settings.
The temperature controls can display both the SET temperature as well as the actual temperature in the
refrigerator and freezer. The actual temperature may vary slightly from the SET temperature based on usage
and operating environment.
On some models, setting both controls to the warmest setting until the display flashes (off) will stop
cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments.
On other models, setting either control to the warmest setting until the display flashes (off) will stop the

Performance Air Flow System
The Performance Air-Flow System is designed to
maximize temperature control in the refrigerator and
freezer compartments. This unique special feature
consists of the Air Tower along the back wall of the
refrigerator and the Air Tunnel on the bottom portion
of the freezer rear wall.
Placing food in front of the louvers on these
components will not affect performance. Although
the Air Tower and the Air Tunnel can be removed,
doing so will affect temperature performance. (For
