UNPLUG THE POWER CORD BEFORE REPLACING A
BURNED OUT LIGHT BULB OR BEFORE CLEANING.
,CAUTION
To Avoid The Risk Of Personal Injury, wear protective
hand covering.
Remove all food and special compart-
ments from the freezer and refrigerator
sections.
Exterior. Wash with warm, soapy water,
rinse and dry. Use appliance polish or
wax periodically to keep the exterior
looking like new.
Door Gaskets. Clean at least twice a
year with mild soap and water. Rinse
and dry Apply a light film of petroleum
jelly to the gaskets on the hinge side to
keep them soft and pliable, and prevent
rolling.
Interior. Wash the liner with warm,
soapy water. Rinse and dry. Interior
components such as shelves and
drawers may be washed with 4 table
spoons baking soda dissolved in
1 quart of warm water to "sweeten"
these parts. Rinse and dry thoroughly
Interior and Exterior. DO NOT USE
abrasive, heavy-duty powders such as
AJAX cleanser, COMET cleanser, etc.
when cleaning the interior or exterior of
the refrigerator. These can scratch and
dull the surface, depending on their
abrasiveness and the cleaning pressure
applied. Avoid metal pads and abrasive
impregnated plastic, nylon and cloth
pads such as CHORE-BOY _'and
KURLY KATE "_ pot cleaners, BRILLO ®
metal cleaning pads, SCOTCH-BRITE _
and PADDY®soap pads, etc. These can
scratch the baked enamel exterior and
interior surfaces.
Do not use concentrated liquid dish-
washing detergent (dissolve in warm
water before using), abrasive cleaners,
solvents or polishing agents on plastic
parts. These cleansers may cause
cracking or discoloration.
Do not wash plastic parts in an auto-
matic dishwasher. They may warp. (The
butter dish can be washed in a dish-
washer if placed on the top rack.)
Ice Maker. If your water has a high min-
eral content, the ice maker may require
periodic cleaning. Contact your local
water treatment dealer for cleaning
instructions. An in-line water filter may
also be necessary.
Clean Defrost Drain Pan. The pan is
located underneath the unit behind the
toe grille. Pull the toe grille forward to
remove. Every three months, remove
the drain pan, wash it with warm soapy
water, rinse and dry. When replacing the
pan, make sure it is directly underneath
the defrost water tube that extends from
the back of the unit.
Clean Condenser Coil. The condenser
coil is located behind the toe grille. Use
a long-handled bottle brush and a vac-
uum cleaner to remove dust and lint
from the coil. Dust and lint act as an
insulator and prevent the coil from
expelling heat taken from inside the
unit. Failure to keep the coil clean will
reduce cooling performance and
efficiency
