Freezer
Failure
Do not open freezer door
unnecessarily
if freezer is
off
for
severa
hours.
If a power
failure
occurs,
frozen foods will stay frozen for at least 24 hours if the
freezer is kept closed, If the power failure continues, pack seven or eight pounds
of dry ice into the freezer every 24 hours, Look in the Yellow Pagesunder "Dry tce,"
"Dairies," or "Ice Cream Manufacturers"
for local dry ice suppliers. Always wear
gloves and use caution when handling dry ice.
If the freezer
has stopped
operating,
see "Freezer does not run
r,
in the Avoid
Service Checklist Section of this manual. [f you cannot solve the problem, call an
authorized servicer immediately.
If the freezer remains off for several hours, follow the directions above for the use
of dry ice during a power failure, If necessary,take the food to a local locker plant
until the freezer is ready to operate. Look in the Yellow Pagesunder "Frozen Food
Locker Plants."
Energy Saving Ideas
The freezer should be located 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
in the
freezer.
Overloading the freezer forces the compressor to run longer. Foodsthat freeze
too slowly may lose quality, or spoil,
Besure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in
the freezer, This cuts down on frost
build-up inside the freezer.
Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum
foil, wax paper, or paper
toweling,
Liners interfere
with
cold air circulation,
making
the freezer
less
efficient.
Organize and label food
to
reduce door
openings and extended
searches.
Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as
possible.
