(-o "_J_/o
The convertible vegetable/meat
drawer can be adjusted to
properly chill meats or vegetables. The air inside the pan is
cooled to prevent "spot" freezing and can be set to keep meats
at the National Livestock and Meat Board recommended
storage
temperatures
of 28 °- 32°F (-2 °- 0°C).
IMPORTANT:
To extend freshness, wrap meats in airtight,
moisture-proof
materials before storing. Always store meat as
recommended.
Adjusting the control
The convertible control comes preset at the lowest meat setting.
To change a control setting: Move the control to the right (colder)
or to the left (less cold) as desired.
To store vegetables: Set the control to VEG (all the way to the left)
to store vegetables at their optimal storage temperatures
(which
need to be warmer than those for meat).
Humidity control location:
Humidity Control on crisper drawer (Style 1 - on left)
Humidity Control on crisper cover (Style 2 - on right)

To remove and replace the wine rack (left) or can/bottle
rack (right):
1. Remove the rack by pulling it straight out from the shelf.
2.
Replace the rack by sliding it in between the shelf and the
wall of the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT: If food starts to freeze, move the control to the left
(less cold). Remember to wait 24 hours between adjustments.
Doing so gives the temperature of the food time to change.

Frozen food
storage guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof),
and the storage temperature.
Ice crystals inside
a sealed package are normal. This simply means that moisture in
the food and air inside the package have condensed,
creating ice
crystals.
