Energy saving ideas
Avoid
overcrowding
shelves. This reduces effectivity of air
circulation around food and causes
refrigerator to run longer.
Avoid adding too much warm food to
unit at one time. This overloads com-
partments and slows rate of cooling.
Do not use aluminum foil, wax paper,
or paper toweling as shelf liners. This
decreases air flow and causes unit to
run less efficiently.
A freezer that is
full runs most effi-

ciently.
Locate refrigerator in coolest part of
room. Avoid areas of direct sunlight, or
near heating ducts, registers or other
heat producing appliances. If this is
not possible, isolate exterior by using
a section of cabinet or an added layer
of insulation.
Refer to Owner's Manual section on
temperature controls for recommend-
ed control settings.
Clean door gaskets every three
months according to Owner's Manual
cleaning instructions. This will assure
that door seals properly and unit runs
efficiently.
Take time to organize items in refriger-
ator to reduce time that door is open.
Be sure your doors are closing
securely by leveling unit as instructed
in this Owner's Manual (see page 4).
Clean condenser coils as indicated in
the Owner's Manual every 3 months.
This will increase energy efficiency
and cooling performance.
