Checking
Food Temperature
Twenty-four hours after the unit is
installed, check the food temperature in
the refrigerator and freezer sections.
Use a quality thermometer that can reg-
ister below zero temperatures.
FREEZER: Place the thermometer in
the center of the freezer, surrounded by
frozen packages. Wait 5 to 8 hours,
then check the reading. If temperature
is not within 0° to + 2 ° F, adjust control
as needed, one number at a time and
check temperature again after 4 to
6 hours. See Figure 17.
REFRIGERATOR: Place the thermom-
eter in a glass of water and place the
glass in the middle of the refrigerator
section. Be sure air can flow around it.
Wait 3 to 4 hours, check the tempera-
ture and adjust the control as needed
one number at a time to achieve the
38 ° to 40 ° F range. Wait 3 to 4 hours
and check the temperature again. See
Figure 18.

Power
Miser
Control
The 2-Position Power Miser Control lets
you save energy by adjusting refrigera-
tor operation to humidity level in your
house. During hot, humid weather, any
refrigerator/freezer will form moisture
around the doors, similar to the way
condensate forms on a glass of ice
water. The cabinet has special heaters
to minimize this condensation. The
Power Miser Control lets you turn these
heaters higher or lower.
The upper position is for periods of
high humidity.
The lower position is for maximum
energy savings. Use for periods of low
humidity.
A minimum amount of condensation is
normal. During extreme high humidity,
condensate may also form on the cabi-
net sides and doors. This is normal and
will disappear when climatic conditions
return to normal.
