In some climates it may be advisable to help protect the cabinet
finish by waxing it. Use a good quality automotive type wax,
taking care not to wax any plastic parts.
How to Clean theEvaporation
Tray
Since dust accumulated on the evaporation tray will decrease
the evaporation efficiency, remove the tray and clean it.
Clean The Condenser
The condenser (tubing and wire attachment) is on the back of
the refrigerator. Clean it with a vacuum eleanex. Do not bend or
twist the tubes. If you have moved the refrigerator, make sure
the doors seal tightly. If they don't, level the refrigerator.
Remove
Perishables
Before Taking
Vacations
Before going on any long vacations, remove all perishables
such as fresh meats, milk, eggs, butter, fruits and vegetables.
Anytime you won't be using your refrigerator regularly, for an
extended period of time or are putting it into storage, empty and
unplug it. Clean the evaporation tray. Clean inside and block the
doors open. Air moying through your refrigerator will help
prevent odors.
Hot-Line
With the freezer-refrigerator
in operation, it is possible that the
cabinet will feel warm at the front edges. This does not indicate
trouble. It is attributable to the hot-line design adopted for this
freezer-refrigerator
which consists of piping hot gas from the
(motor-driven) compressor along the front edges of the cabinet
This has nothing to do with the storage temperature inside.
The evaporation tray is set on refrigerator back. To remove,
unscrew and pull it out.
Replace the evaporation tray by following the removal
instructions in reverse and be sure to secure it properly.
If the tray is not securely in place, defrosted water may spill out
or the evaporation process may be hindered.
