Setting the Temperature Controls

Cool Down Period

• For safe food storage, allow four 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 four hours.
• When loading the freezer, freeze only three
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.

for your personal satisfaction. To adjust the
