REFRIGERATOR USE
In order to ensure proper temperatures,
you need to permit
airflow between the refrigerator and freezer sections. As shown in
the illustration,
cool air enters through the bottom of the freezer
section and moves up. Most of the air then flows through the
freezer section vents and recirculates under the freezer floor. The
rest of the air enters the refrigerator section through the top vent.
Do not block any of these vents with food packages. If the vents
are blocked, airflow will be prevented and temperature
and
moisture problems may occur.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
For your convenience, your refrigerator control(s) are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
control(s) are still preset to the mid-settings
as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off, turn the refrigerator control to
the word OFF or until the word OFF appears. Your product will
not cool when the refrigerator control is set to OFE

IMPORTANT:
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely
before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food
into the refrigerator.
If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely,
your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer
Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended
setting will
not cool the compartments
any faster.
Adjusting Controls
The mid-setting(s)
indicated in the previous section should be
correct for normal household usage. The controls are set
correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice
cream is firm.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures,
use the settings listed in the
chart below as a guide. On models with two controls, adjust the
refrigerator temperature first. Wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments
and then recheck the temperatures.
