To obtain the best possible results from your refrigerator, it is important that you operate it properly.
This section tells you how to set the controls, remove and adjust the features in your refrigerator, and
how to save energy.
S
ETTING THE CONTROLS
Style 1
Controls for the refrigerator and freezer are located in the
top of the refrigerator section. When you first install
your refrigerator, set the Refrigerator Control at 3 and
the Freezer Control at 3.
To set the Refrigerator Control to OFF, turn one setting
past warmer until the word OFF appears. Your appliance
will not cool when the Refrigerator Control is set to OFF.
The Freezer Control functions as an airflow director.
Setting "1" will direct more of the cold air into the refrig-
erator section, while setting "5" will direct more cold air
into the freezer section. The cold air travels from the
freezer compartment through the top vent, into your
refrigerator section (see diagram in "Ensuring proper air
circulation" section).

NOTES:
• The built-in exterior moisture control continously
guards against moisture build-up on the outside of
the refrigerator cabinet.
• Turning the Refrigerator Control (Style 1) or
Temperature Control (Style 2) to OFF stops cooling in
both the refrigerator and the freezer compartments,
but does not disconnect the refrigerator from the
......power supply.
IMPORTANT: Give the refrigerator time to cool down
completely before adding food. This could take several
hours. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely your food may spoil. Turning the control(s) to
a higher than recommended setting will not cool the
compartment(s) any faster. The control settings indicated
in "Changing the Control Settings" section should be
correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The
control is set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as
you like and when ice cream is firm.
