Setting the Temperature Controls
Cool down period
To ensure safe food storage, allow the
refrigerator to operate with the doors
closed for at least 8 to 12 hours before
loading it with food.
NOTE
When making changes to the
temperature controls, wait 24 hours
for the temperature to stabilize before
making additional changes.
When first turning refrigerator on, move
refrigerator and freezer controls to
recommended setting. After 24 hours,
adjust the controls as needed.
* IMPORTANT
Turning the refrigerator temperature
control to "0" turns off the compressor
and prevents the refrigerator from
cooling, but does not disconnect the
power to the light bulb and other
electrical components. To turn off power
to your refrigerator, you must unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet.

Turn refrigerator control slightly towards cold.
Turn freezer control slightly towards colder.
Turn refrigerator control to 0 or press On/Off
button for 3 seconds to turn off cooling system.
Turning the refrigerator control will change
temperatures in both compartments. For
example, if the refrigerator control is turned
to a colder setting, the freezer control may
have to be adjusted to a warmer setting.
Turning the freezer control will change only
the freezer temperature.
To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates
air in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments. For good circulation, do
not block cold air vents with food items.
Defrost
Your freezer compartment defrosts
automatically so there is no need to turn
the unit off to perform a manual defrost.
