Cleaning

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to avoid
buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
3. Wash painted metal exteriors with a clean sponge or soft cloth
and a mild detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft
cloth.
4. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Changing the Light Bulbs

NOTE: Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the
bulb with an appliance bulb of the same size, shape, and wattage.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove the upper shelf to access the light shield.
3. Remove the screw from the bottom of the light shield.
4. Press the side of the light shield to release it from the catch
and pull the shield away from the light assembly.
5. Remove the light bulb and replace it with a new 25-watt
appliance bulb. Replace the light shield.

Vacation and Moving Care

Vacations
If You Choose to Leave the Refrigerator On While You're
Away:
1. Use up any perishables and freeze other items.
2. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, and is
connected to the household water supply, turn off the water
supply to the refrigerator. Property damage can occur if the
water supply is not turned off.
3. If you have an automatic ice maker, turn off the ice maker.
NOTE: Depending on your model, raise the wire shutoff arm to
OFF (up) position, or press the switch to OFF.
4. Empty the ice bin.
If You Choose to Turn Off the Refrigerator Before You
Leave:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
2. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position or press the switch to OFF,
depending on your model.
3. Turn off the Temperature control(s). See "Using the Control(s)."
4. Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry well.
5. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both doors to prop
them open far enough for air to get in. This stops odor and
mold from building up.
Moving
When you are moving your refrigerator to a new home, follow
these steps to prepare it for the move.
1. If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
Disconnect the water line from the back of the refrigerator.
When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position or press the switch to OFF,
depending on your model.
2. Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all frozen food
in dry ice.
3. Empty the ice bin.
4. Turn off the Temperature control(s). See "Using the Control(s)."
5. Unplug refrigerator.
6. Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
7. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together so they don't shift and rattle during the move.
8. Depending on the model, raise the front of the refrigerator so it
rolls more easily OR raise the leveling screws so they don't
scrape the floor. See "Adjust the Door(s)."
9. Tape the doors closed and tape the power cord to the back of
the refrigerator.
When you get to your new home, put everything back and refer to
the "Installation Instructions" section for preparation instructions.
Also, if your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, remember to
reconnect the water supply to the refrigerator.
