Cleaning your refrigerator
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect
power.
2. Remove all removable parts from inside, such as shelves,
crispers, etc.
3. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning
waxes, concentrated
detergents, bleaches or cleansers
containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior
and door liners or gaskets. Do not use paper towels,
scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools. These can
scratch or damage materials.
To help remove odors, you can wash interior walls with a
mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs. to 1 qt.
[26 g to .95 L] of water).
4. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do
not use abrasive or harsh cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft
cloth. For additional protection against damage to painted
metal exteriors, apply appliance wax (or auto paste wax) with
a clean, soft cloth. Do not wax plastic parts.
NOTE; To keep your Stainless Steel refrigerator looking like
new and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer's
approved Stainless Steel Cleaner
& Polish.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for Stainless Steel parts only!
Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish to come into
contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If accidental contact does
occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild detergent in
warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. To order the
cleaner, see the "Accessories"
section.
5. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments.
If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every two to
three months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Remove the base grille (see "Base Grille" or "Door
Removal" section).
Use a vacuum with a soft brush to clean the grille, the
open areas behind the grille and the front surface area of
the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
6. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace the bulb with one of the same size and shape. The
dispenser light requires a heavy duty 10-watt bulb. All other lights
require a 40-watt appliance bulb. Replacement
bulbs are
available from your dealer.
