Setting up your refrigerator

Before using your refrigerator

  •  Remove the exterior and interior packaging.
  •  Wash the inside with a damp, warm cloth and a baking soda solution (two tablespoons in a quart of water), then wipe dry with a dry cloth. Do this periodically to keep your refrigerator looking new.
  •  Level your refrigerator using the leveling feet. If you do not level your refrigerator, the door may not close or seal correctly, causing cooling, frost, and moisture problems. Turn the leveling feet clockwise to raise or counterclockwise to lower a side.

Finding a suitable location

  •  Place your refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support it when fully loaded.
  •  Do not install your refrigerator on carpeting or a rug.
  •  Your refrigerator is designed to be free standing and should not be recessed or built-in.
  •  Do not install your refrigerator in a garage or any other outside installation.
  •  Adjust the feet to keep your refrigerator level.
  •  If you locate your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, allow sufficient space on the hinge side for the door to swing open.
  •  Position your refrigerator away from direct sunlight and sources of heat, such as a stove, heater, or radiator. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold temperatures may also prevent your refrigerator from performing correctly.
  •  Avoid locating your refrigerator in moist areas.
  • Your refrigerator is designed to operate in a temperature range of 50° to 110° F (10° to 43.3° C). If you operate your refrigerator outside this temperature range, your refrigerator may not work correctly.

Providing correct ventilation
Allow at least 8 in. (20.3 cm) between the left and right sides of your refrigerator and surrounding walls and at least 2 in. (5.1 cm) between the back and top of your refrigerator and the surrounding wall and ceiling.

  •  The power outlet accepts a 3-prong grounding plug. The third prong on the power cord plug grounds your refrigerator to minimize the possibility of electric shock. Do not modify the power plug.
  •  You do NOT plug anything else into the same power outlet as your refrigerator. You may overload the circuit which can cause a fire.
  •  You do NOT use an extension cord. If your refrigerator is too far from the power outlet, move your refrigerator or have a electrician install a plug closer to your refrigerator.
  •  The power outlet cannot be turned off with a switch or pull string.

Leveling your refrigerator
Leveling your refrigerator is important. If you do not level your refrigerator during installation, the doors may not close or seal correctly which can cause cooling, frost, or moisture problems.

Rotate the leveling feet clockwise (to raise) your refrigerator or counter-clockwise (to lower).

Maintaining your refrigerator

Cleaning your refrigerator

  •  Do not use gasoline, benzine, thinner, or other similar solvents.
  •  Do not use abrasive cleaners.
  •  Do not use sharp objects because they are likely to scratch the surface.

We recommend that you do the following every time you clean your refrigerator to keep it running odor-free and efficiently:

  1.  Unplug your refrigerator from the power outlet.
  2.  Remove all food.
  3.  If you want to remove the door racks, shelves, crisper, freezer shelf, or freezer door racks, see
  4.  Clean the doors, handles, and cabinet surfaces with a mild detergent, then rinse with warm water using a wrung-out sponge or cloth.
  5.  Wash the inside with a damp warm cloth soaked in a solution of one quart of lukewarm water to two tablespoons of
  6. baking soda solution, then rinse with warm water using a wrung-out sponge or cloth.
  7.  Clean the baskets, shelves, and drawers with a mild detergent and soft cloth, then rinse with warm water.
  8.  Make sure that you keep the door gaskets (seals) clean so that the door seals tightly. This helps your refrigerator run
  9.  Dry all surfaces and removable parts before putting them back into place. 9 Plug your refrigerator into the power outlet.

Shutting down your refrigerator for a long time (several months)

  1.  Turn off your refrigerator and unplug it from the wall outlet.
  2.  Remove all food.
  3.  Clean your refrigerator.
  4.  Leave the door open slightly to avoid possible formation of condensation, mold, or odor.

Moving your refrigerator

  1.  Turn off your refrigerator and unplug it from the wall outlet.
  2.  Remove all food.
  3.  Securely tape down all loose items inside your refrigerator.
  4.  Tape the doors shut.
  5.  Make sure that your refrigerator stays in the upright position during transportation.

Tips on saving energy

  •  Locate your refrigerator in the coolest area of the room, away from heat producing appliances or heating ducts and out of direct sunlight.
  •  Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing them in your refrigerator. Overloading your refrigerator forces the compressor to run longer.
  •  Wrap foods correctly and wipe containers dry before placing them in your refrigerator. This cuts down on frost build-up inside your refrigerator.
  •  Organize and label food to reduce door openings and extended searches.
  •  Do not use aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper towel to line shelves. Liners interfere with cold air circulation and make your refrigerator less efficient.

Tips on storing food

  •  Always store cooked meats on a refrigerator shelf above raw meats to avoid bacterial transfer. Keep raw meat on a plate which is large enough to collect juices, and cover the plate with cling film or foil. Leave space around food. This allows cold air to circulate around your refrigerator so that all parts of your refrigerator are kept cool.
  •  To prevent transfer of flavors and food drying out, wrap or cover each food item separately. Fruit and vegetables need not be wrapped.
    Let hot food cool down before placing it in the refrigerator or freezer compartment. Placing hot food in the
    fridge-freezer could spoil other food and lead to higher temperatures.
  •  To prevent cold air from escaping, try to limit the number of times you open the doors. When retuning from shopping, sort foods to be kept in the refrigerator compartment before opening the doors. Only open the door to put food in or take it out.
  •  Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperature, such as bananas and melons.
  •  When storing food in the refrigerator compartment, use a container with a lid whenever possible. This prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food keep its taste and nutrients.
  •  When storing food in the freezer compartment, wrap the food in polyethylene film, aluminum foil, or other types of freezer storage products
  •  Do not block air vents inside either compartment with food. Smooth circulation of cold air keeps the refrigerator and freezer temperatures even.
  •  Do not open the doors frequently. Opening the doors lets warm air enter the compartments and can cause the temperature to rise.
  •  To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store food near the temperature controls.
  •  Never keep too many foods in the door rack, because this may stop the door from fully closing.
  •  Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment. They may break when frozen.
  •  Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes a loss of taste and nutrition.
  •  Store fruits and vegetables in the crisper to prevent excessive evaporation of water and freshness.
  •  Leave a small amount of “air space” when freezing liquids to allow for expansion.
  •  To make the best use of freezer space, freeze liquids (or solids with liquids, such as stew) in square blocks. Pour the liquid into a freezer bag placed inside a square-sided container and freeze it. When the liquid is frozen, remove the bag from the container and seal the bag.

Tips for shopping for frozen foods

  •  When you are buying frozen food, look at the storage guidelines on the packaging. Check the “Best Before” date. Do not use food that is past this date.
  •  Check the temperature of the frozen food cabinet in the shop where you buy your frozen foods.
  •  Make sure that the frozen food package is in perfect condition.
  •  Always buy frozen products last to avoid thawing while you shop.
  •  Keep frozen food together while shopping, and on the journey home to help to keep the food cooler.
  •  Don’t buy frozen food unless you can freeze it straight away.
  •  When transporting frozen food, use special insulated bags that you can buy from most supermarkets and hardware shops. These keep frozen food cold for longer.
  • Freeze food in small quantities. It freezes faster and takes less time to thaw.
  •  If you are freezing large amounts of fresh food, select a low temperature range. This will lower the temperature in the freezer so your food freezes faster. When the food is frozen, adjust the temperature back to its normal mode.

Troubleshooting

PROBLEM SOLUTION
 

My refrigerator does not work.

•           Make sure that your refrigerator is securely plugged into a working outlet.

•           Make sure that your power source has the correct voltage. Your refrigerator’s voltage rating is on a label on the back of your refrigerator.

•           Check the house fuse or circuit breaker box and replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.

 

 

The refrigerator compartment has a bad odor.

•           Make sure that all food with a strong odor (like onions) is wrapped or stored in airtight packaging.

•           Certain containers and wrapping materials (such as paper, foil, or plastic) can cause odors. If you think this might be the case, try using different containers or a different brand of wrapping material.

•           Check for spoiled food and remove it.

•           Clean the inside of your refrigerator. See Cleaning your refrigerator on page 17.

 

 

 

The refrigerator doors do not close completely.

•           Make sure that no food packages are in the way.

•           Make sure that the door gaskets (seals) are clean. See Cleaning your refrigerator on page 17.

•           If the door gasket does not seal, try heating then cooling the seal. You can use an electric hair dryer to heat the seal.

•           Make sure that your refrigerator is level. See Leveling your refrigerator on page 9.

•           If you have recently reversed the door hinge to switch the direction the door opens, double check the hinge installation for any misaligned or missing parts.

 

 

The temperature is too warm.

•           You may have left the doors open too long or opened them too frequently.

•           Make sure that no obstacle is keeping the doors from closing correctly.

•           Adjust the refrigerator or freezer compartment temperature. See Setting the refrigerator temperature on page 14 or Setting the freezer temperature on page 15.

•           Your refrigerator may not have enough clearance from walls or the ceiling. See Providing correct ventilation on page 8.

 

The temperature is too cold.

•           Adjust the refrigerator or freezer compartment temperature. See Setting the refrigerator temperature on page 14 or Setting the freezer temperature on page 15.
 

A layer of frost occurs in one of the compartments.

•           A layer of frost may occur on the compartment’s interior walls if the freezer is opened frequently or kept open too long.

•          Make sure that the air outlets are not blocked by food.

•          Make sure that the doors are fully closed.

 

 

The refrigerator door is hard to open or close.

•          When you open the refrigerator door, warm air rushes inside. When you close the door, the warm air rushes to the condenser which causes a vacuum. This causes the door to be hard to open for about 10 to 15 seconds after closing.

•           If the door is hard to open at other times, try rubbing paraffin wax or petroleum jelly along the edges of the entire gasket. Paraffin wax is used for canning and is safe for use around food.

•           If the door is hard to close, try slightly loosening the tension on the door hinges.

 

 

 

The compressor runs for a long time or turns on and off frequently.

The compressor runs longer if:

•           The room temperature is high.

•          You just added a large amount of food. Wait for the food to freeze, then check again.

•           You open and close the door frequently.

•           The door gasket is dirty. Clean the gasket. See Cleaning your refrigerator on page 17.

•           Your refrigerator has been disconnected for a period of time. Wait for your refrigerator to cool (about four hours) before adding food.

•           You have the temperature set too low.

•           Make sure that the refrigerator has enough clearance on the sides and top. See Providing correct ventilation on page 8.

PROBLEM SOLUTION
 

 

 

The refrigerator makes unusual noises or vibrations.

The following sounds are normal:

•          Compressor running noises.

•          Air movement noise from the small fan motor in the freezer compartment or other compartments.

•          Popping noise during automatic defrosting.

•          Clicking noise before the compressor starts. Other unusual noises or vibrations may occur:

•          If you have items on the top of your refrigerator. Remove the items.

•          If your refrigerator is not level. See Leveling your refrigerator on page 9.

•           If your refrigerator is touching walls. Move it away from the walls.

•           If the shelves or drawers are installed incorrectly.

 

The outside of the refrigerator is hot.

Heat dissipation from the condenser may make the outside feel hot. This is normal and happens if:

•           The room temperature is high.

•           You have too much food in your refrigerator.

•           You open and close the doors excessively.

 

Water condenses on the outside of the refrigerator.

•           Condensation on the exterior surface and door seal is normal when the room humidity is high.

•           When you open the door, warm, moist outside air meets the cold dry air inside your refrigerator. This is normal.
