Setting the Temperature Control

Cool Down Period
• For safe food storage, allow four hours for the freezer to
cool down completely. The freezer will run continuously
for the first several hours. Foods that are already frozen
may be placed in the freezer after the first few hours of
operation. Unfrozen foods should NOT be loaded into
the freezer until the freezer has operated for four hours.
• When loading the freezer, freeze only three pounds of
fresh food per cubic foot of freezer space at one time.
Distribute packages to be frozen evenly throughout the
freezer. It is not necessary to turn the control knob to a
colder setting while freezing food.
Temperature Control
Electromechanical Temperature
Control (Chest and Some
Upright Models)
The electromechanical
temperature control is located
inside the freezer on upright
models, and on the left exterior
wall on chest models (see figure

preset to provide satisfactory food
storage temperatures. However, the temperature control
is adjustable to provide a range of temperatures for your
personal satisfaction. To adjust the temperature setting,
turn the temperature control knob
clockwise or counterclockwise.
Allow several hours for the
temperature to stabilize between
adjustments.

storage temperatures. To adjust
the temperature setting, press
the UP (٨) symbol for colder

symbol for warmer temperatures
on the control panel. Allow several
hours for the temperature to
stabilize between adjustments.
