To allow door to close and seal properly, DO NOT let food
packages extend past the front of shelves.

Energy-saving Tips
• The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the
room, away from heat producing appliances or heating
ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing
in the freezer. Overloading the freezer forces the
compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze too slowly
may lose quality or spoil.
• Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the freezer. This cuts down on
frost build-up inside the freezer.
• Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil,
wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold
air circulation, making the freezer less efficient.
• Organize and label food to reduce door openings and
extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at
one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
