Adjust the Doors

Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Your refrigerator has two adjustable levelers, one on each side, at
the base of the refrigerator. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or
if you want the doors to close more easily, adjust the level and tilt
of the refrigerator.
1. Turn the leveler to the left to raise that side of the refrigerator
or to the right to lower that side. It may take several turns to
adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the levelers. This makes it
easier to turn the levelers.
2. Open both doors again to make sure that they close as easily
as you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear
by turning both levelers to the right. It may take several more
NOTE: To keep the refrigerator level, make the same
adjustment to each side.
3. Using a level, make sure the refrigerator is still level from side
to side. Readjust if necessary.


Using the Controls

Temperature Control
When you plug in the refrigerator for the first time, set the
Temperature Control to the Recommended setting. Temperature
Control adjustments range from MIN (least cold) to MAX (coldest).
Turning the Temperature Control to OFF stops cooling in the
refrigerator and freezer compartments, but it does not
disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply.
The Temperature Control regulates the temperature in both
the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Settings to the left
of the mid-setting make the temperature less cold. Settings to
the right of the mid-setting make the temperature colder.
Wait 24 hours before you put food into your refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the Temperature Control to a higher (colder)
setting will not cool the compartments any faster.
The mid-settings should be correct for normal household
usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as
cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, before adjusting the controls, first make sure the air
vents are not blocked.
Adjust the Temperature Control
NOTE: Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments and then
recheck the temperatures.
FREEZER too warm/too little ice
FREEZER too cold
Airflow Control
The Airflow control is located on the back wall of the freezer. It
regulates the amount of air flowing between the freezer and the
refrigerator compartments.
When you plug in the refrigerator for the first time, turn the Airflow
control to the Recommended setting.
Adjust the Airflow Control
If you want to temporarily increase the cold airflow to a specific
compartment, adjust the control.
IMPORTANT: Once the performance is achieved, return the
Airflow control to the Recommended setting to keep the
refrigerator operating at optimum efficiency.
