If you need to adjust temperatures in the refrigerator or
freezer, use the settings listed in the chart below as a
guide. Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments.
E
NSURING PROPER AIR CIRCULATION
In order to ensure proper temperatures, you need to
permit air flow between the two sections. As shown in
the illustration, cool air enters through the bottom of the
freezer section (A) and moves up. Most of the air then
flows through the freezer section vents (B) and
recirculates under the freezer floor (C). The rest of the air
enters the fresh section through the top vent (D).
Do not block any of these vents
(A, B, C, or D) with food packages. If the vents are
blocked, air flow will be prevented and temperature and
moisture problems may occur.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both
sections, any odors formed in one section will transfer to
the other. You must thoroughly clean both sections to
eliminate odors. To prevent odor transfer and drying out
of food, wrap or cover foods tightly. (See the "Food
Storage Guide" section for details.)
