Crisper Light
If necessary, remove the top crisper drawer for easier access
to the crisper light shield. Remove the light shield by lifting
the ends out of the brackets as shown.

brackets. If necessary, replace the top crisper drawer.
Upper Freezer
Light (on some models)
Remove the light shield by squeezing the sides of the light
shield in toward the center while pulling the shield forward as
shown.
Replace the light shield by fitting the tabs into the slotted
holes in the freezer liner. Push in the shield until it snaps into
place.
Lower Freezer Light Behind Top Freezer Basket
(on some models)
Depending on your model, remove the top freezer basket or
top freezer basket shelf. Remove light shield by removing the
Phillips screw on the top of the shield. Carefully rotate the
shield until the left tab can be gently pulled from the freezer
wall.
Replace the light shield by inserting the left tab into the
freezer wall. Align top tab with screw hole and replace screw.
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.

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.
Depending on the model, turn the Temperature Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFR See "Using the Controls."
Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry well.
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.

these steps to prepare it for the move.
1. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
Disconnect the water line from the back of the
refrigerator.
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.
2. Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all frozen
