been newly installed? Allow 24 hours
for the refrigerator to cool completely.

Has water not been recently dispensed?

water may not be cool. Discard the first glass of water.

automatic exterior moisture control. If still concerned,
call for
service.
Temperature
is too warm
Are the air vents blocked in either compartment?
This
prevents the movement of cold air from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Remove any objects from in front of the air vents.
See "Ensuring Proper Air Circulation" for the location of air
vents.
Are the door(s) opened often? The refrigerator will warm
when this occurs. Keep the refrigerator cool by getting all
items out at one time, keeping food organized, and closing
the door as soon as possible.
Has a large amount of food just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer? Adding a large amount of food
warms the refrigerator. It can take several hours for the
refrigerator to return to the normal temperature.
Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See "Using the Controls."
Is the refrigerator not cooling?
For models with digital
controls, turn the unit OFF then ON again to reset. See "Using
the Controls." If this does not correct the problem, call for
service.
There is interior moisture
buildup
Are the air vents blocked in the refrigerator? Remove any
objects from in front of the air vents. See "Ensuring Proper Air
Circulation" for the location of air vents.
Are the doors opened often? Avoid humidity buildup by
getting all items out at one time, keeping food organized, and
closing the door as soon as possible.
Is the room humid?
It is normal for moisture to build up
inside the refrigerator when the room air is humid.
Is the food packaged
correctly?
Check that all food is
securely wrapped. Wipe off damp food containers before
placing in the refrigerator.
Are the controls
set correctly
for the surrounding
conditions? See "Using the Controls."
Was a self-defrost
cycle completed?
It is normal for
droplets to form after the refrigerator self-defrosts.
The doors will not close completely
Are food packages blocking the door open? Rearrange
containers so that they fit more tightly and take up less
space.
Is the ice storage bin out of position? For models with an
interior ice storage bin, push the ice storage bin in all the way.
If the ice storage bin does not go in all the way, it may not be
put in straight. Pull it out and try again. For models with an ice
storage bin located on the freezer door, the bin should sit
level. To remove the bin, press the release button on the right
side of the bin and lift straight up. Replace the bin in the door
making sure it is properly aligned and snapped securely into
place. See "Ice Maker and Storage Bin."
Are the pans, shelves, bins, or baskets out of position?
Put the crisper cover and all pans, shelves, bins, and baskets
back into their correct positions. See the "Convertible
Vegetable/Meat
Drawer, Crisper and Covers" section for
more information.
Are the gaskets sticking? Clean gaskets according to the
directions in the "Cleaning" section.
Does the refrigerator wobble or seem unstable? Level the
refrigerator. See "Adjust the Doors."
