Frozen food storage guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof), and the storage temperature. Seal the package
or container securely to prevent taste and odor transfer
throughout the product. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are
normal. This simply means that moisture in the food and air
inside the package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2-3 lb of food per cubic foot [907-1,350 g
per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the freezer for air
to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave enough room
for the door to close tightly.
NOTE: For more information on preparing food for freezing,
check a freezer guide or reliable cookbook.


Your model may have some or all of these features. Features that
can be purchased separately as product accessories are labeled
with the word "Accessory." Not all accessories will fit all models.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the accessories, please
call the toll-free number on the cover or in the "Assistance or
Service" section.

end of the rails.
2. Locate each end of the rail above the rail's pocket opening,
and push the rail straight down until it stops.

or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.

odors from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
To clean your refrigerator:
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove all removable parts from inside, such as shelves,
crispers, etc.
3. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning
waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers
containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior
and door liners or gaskets.
Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools. These can scratch or damage materials.
To help remove odors, you can wash interior walls with a
mixture of warm water and baking soda (2 tbs. to 1 qt. [26
g to .95 L] of water).
4. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Do

clean, soft cloth. Do not wax plastic parts.
