Temperature Controls

Cool down period
To ensure safe food storage, allow the refrigerator to
operate with the doors closed for at least 8 to 12 hours
before loading it with food.
NOTE
When making changes to the temperature controls, wait
24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making
additional changes.
When first turning refrigerator on, move refrigerator and
freezer controls to recommended setting. After 24 hours,
adjust the controls as needed.
* IMPORTANT
Turning the refrigerator temperature control to "0" turns
off the compressor and prevents the refrigerator from
cooling, but does not disconnect the power to the light
bulb and other electrical components. To turn off power
to your refrigerator, you must unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet.

Temperature adjustment
Adjust temperature gradually: move the knob in small
increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize.
For colder temperatures, turn the knob towards Colder.
For warmer temperatures, turn the knob towards Cold.
Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in
both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control
is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have
to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer
control will change only the freezer temperature.
To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the
refrigerator and freezer compartments. For good
circulation, do not block cold air vents with food items.
