REFRIGERATOR USE

Using the Controls

For your convenience, your refrigerator controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
controls are still preset. The Refrigerator Control and the Freezer
Control should both be set to the "mid-settings."
IMPORTANT:
Your product will not cool when the Refrigerator Control is set
to OFF.
The Refrigerator Control adjusts the refrigerator compartment
temperature. The Freezer Control adjusts the freezer
compartment temperature.
Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer Controls to a
higher (colder) than recommended setting will not cool the
compartments any faster.
Digital Controls

NOTE: The factory recommended set points are 0°F (-18°C) for

the freezer and 37°F (3°C) for the refrigerator.
To turn refrigerator on and view set points:
Press and hold POWER (ON/OFF) pad for 2 seconds.
To view the Celsius temperatures:
Press the °C SELECT pad. The indicator will light up. To

again.
NOTE: If the freezer temperature is below zero, the negative sign
next to the freezer display will light up.
Adjusting Controls

cream is firm.
