PERIOD
For safe food storage, allow 4 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 4 hours.
When loading the freezer, freeze only 3 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 1). The temperature
is factory 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 counter clockwise.
Allow several hours for the
temperature
to stabilize between adjustments.
• The freezer should be located in the
coolest area of the room, away from
heat producing appliances or heating
ducts, and out of direct sunlight.
• Let hot foods cool to room
temperature before placing in
the freezer. Overloading the freezer
forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that freeze
too slowly may lose quality or spoil.
Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the freezer. This cuts down on
frost build-up inside the freezer.
Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil,
wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold
air circulation, making the freezer less efficient.
Organize and label food to reduce door openings and
extended searches. Remove as many items as needed
at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
