FRESH FOOD CONTROL
Temperature
Controls
Your refrigerator
has two controls
that let you
regulate
the temperature
in the fresh food and
freezer compartments°
At first, set the Fresh Food control at "5" and the
Freezer control at "C'.'
Allow
24 hours for the temperature
to stabilize,
whether you are setting the controls for the first time
or adjusting
them later_ Then, if you want colder or
warmer
temperatures
in either compartment,
adjust
the controls one letter or number
at a time.
Note: Turning the
Fresh
Food
control to OFF turns off
cooling in both compartments--fresh
food and
freezerwbut
does not shut off power to the
refrigerator°
How to test temperatures:
Use milk test for fresh food compartment.
Place
a container
of milk on the top shelf in the fresh food
compartment.
Check it a day later° If the milk is too
warm or too cold, adjust the temperature
controls.
Use ice cream
test
for
freezer
compartment.
Place a container
of ice cream in the center of the
freezer compartment.
Check it after a day. If it's too
hard or too soft, adjust the temperature
controls.
Turning your household
thermostat
below
60°F. at night? You may want to turn the lettered
control one step colder, as from "C" to "D'J Cooler
temperatures
in the house may cause the compressor
to operate
less frequently, thus allowing
the freezer
compartment
to warm somewhat,
To protect your frozen food supply, leave your
lettered control at this new, colder setting for the
entire winter or for as long as you keep your
thermostat turned down.
Turning the lettered
control to a colder setting
should have no effect on your fresh food
compartment.
However, if freezing occurs,
turn the numbered
control one step warmer,
as from "5" to "4"'
When you stop turning
the household
thermostat
down at night, turn the refrigerator
temperature
controls
back to their regular settings.

of electricity
required
to operate
your refrigerator,
be sure
the

This turns off the
heater in your refrigerator
that prevents moisture
from forming
on the outside.

forms on the outside
of the
refrigerator,

The low-wattage
heater will warm the
outside of the cabinet and, under most conditions,
prevent the forming
of moisture
or water droplets.
