Temperature adjustment
Adjust temperature gradually: move the knob in small
increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize.
For colder temperatures, turn the knob towards
Colder.
For warmer temperatures, turn the knob towards Cold.
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.
