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, shape, and wattage.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect
power.
2. Remove the bulb from behind the control panel in the
refrigerator or from behind the light shield in the freezer (on
some models). Replace it with an appliance bulb of the same
wattage.
3. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep both refrigerator
doors closed 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
two to four 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.
Vacations
If you choose to leave the refrigerator
on while you're
away:
1. Use up any perishables and freeze other items.
2.
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Raise wire shutoff arm to OFF (up) position or move the
switch to the OFF (right) setting.
Shut off water supply to the ice maker.
3.
Empty the ice bin.
If you choose to turn the refrigerator
off before you leave:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
2.
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
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.
3.
Depending on your model, turn the Thermostat
Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFE See the "Using the Control(s)"
section.
4. Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry well.
5. 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.
Moving
When you are moving your refrigerator to a new home, follow
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 food
in dry ice.
3.
Empty the ice bin.
4.
Depending on your model, turn the Thermostat
Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFR See the "Using the Control(s)"
section.
5.
Unplug the refrigerator.
6.
Empty water from the defrost pan.
7. Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
8. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together so they don't shift and rattle during the move.
9.
Depending on the model, raise the front of the refrigerator so
it rolls more easily OR screw in the leveling legs so they don't
scrape the floor. See the "Door Closing" or "Leveling Your
Refrigerator" section.
10. Tape the doors shut and the power cord to the refrigerator
cabinet.
When you get to your new home, put everything back and refer to
the "Refrigerator
Installation" section for preparation instructions.
Also, if your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, remember to
reconnect the water supply to the refrigerator.
