SETTING THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Cool Down Period
• For safe food storage, allow 4 hours for the freezer to cool
down completely. The freezer will run continuously for the
first several hours. Foods that are already frozen may be
placed in freezer after the first few hours of operation. Un-
frozen foods should NOT be loaded into freezer until freezer
has operated for 4 hours.
• When loading freezer, freeze only 3 pounds of fresh food
per cubic foot of freezer space at one time. Distribute
packages to be frozen evenly throughout the freezer. It is
not necessary to turn control knob to a colder setting while
The temperature control is located inside the freezer on
upright models, and
on the front outside
wall on chest models.
The temperature is
factory preset to provide
satisfactory food storage
the temperature control
is adjustable to provide a
range of temperatures for
your personal satisfaction.
If a colder temperature
is desired, turn the
temperature control knob toward MAX and allow several
hours for temperatures to stabilize between adjustments.
