Care
and
cleaning
of the
refrigerator.
Cleaning
the
Outside
The door
handles
and
trim
(on some
models).
Clean with
a
cloth
dampened
with
soapy
water.
Dry with
a soft
cloth.
Keep the
outside
clean.
Wipe
with
a clean
cloth
lightly
dampened
with
kitchen
appliance
wax
or mild liquid
dish
detergent.
Dry and polish
with
a clean, soft
cloth.
Do not wipe the
refrigerator
with
a soiled
dish cloth
or wet
towel.
These may
leave
a residue
that
can
erode the
paint.
Do not use scouring
pads, powdered
cleaners,
bleach
or
cleaners
containing
either
bleach
or ammonia
because
these
products
can scratch
and weaken
the
point
finish.
The stainless
steel
doors
and door
handles
(on some
models) can be cleaned
with
a commercially
available
stainless
steel cleaner.
Cleaners
with
oxalic acid such as Bar
Keepers
Friend Soft Cleanser
TM
will remove
rust, tarnish
and
small blemishes.
Use only a liquid cleanser
free of grit and rub
in the direction
of the brush
lines with
a damp
soft sponge.
Do
not use appliance
wax
or polish on the stainless
steel.
Cleaning
the
Inside
To help
prevent
odors,
leave
an open
box of baking
soda in
the fresh
food
and freezer
compartments.
Unplug
the
refrigerator
before
cleaning.
If this is not practical,
wring
excess
moisture
out of sponge
or cloth
when
cleaning
around
switches,
lights
or controls.
Use warm
water
and baking
soda solution-about
a
tablespoon
(15 ml) of baking
soda to a quart (1 liter) of water.
This both cleans and neutralizes
odors. Rinse and wipe dry.
After
cleaning
the
door
gaskets,
apply
a thin
layer of
petroleum
jelly
to the door
gaskets
at the
hinge
side. This
helps
keep the gaskets
from
sticking
and
bending
out
of
shape.
Do not
clean
glass shelves
or covers
with
warm
water
when
they
are cold. Glass shelves
and covers
may
break
if exposed
to sudden
temperature
changes
or
impact
such as bumping
or dropping.
Tempered
glass
is
designed
to shatter
into
many
small
pieces
if it breaks.
Do not wash
any plastic
refrigerator
parts
in the
dishwasher.
Moving
the
Refrigerator
Be careful
when
moving
the
refrigerator
away
from
the wall.
All types
of floor
coverings
can be damaged,
particularly
cushioned
coverings
and those
with
embossed
surfaces.
Turn the leveling
legs at each front
corner
of the refrigerator
counterclockwise
until the rollers support
the refrigerator.
Pull
the refrigerator
straight
out and return
it to position
by pushing
it straight
in. Moving
the refrigerator
in a side direction
may
result
in damage
to the
floor
covering
or refrigerator.
When
pushing
the
refrigerator
back,
make
sure you
don't
roll over the
power
cord
or ice maker
supply
line (on some
models).
After
rolling
the
refrigerator
back
into place, turn
the
legs clockwise
until the
legs again
bear
the weight
of the
refrigerator.
Light
Bulb
Replacement
Before replacing
a burned-out
light bulb,
the refrigerator
should be unplugged
in order to avoid contact
with a live wire filament.
(Aburned-out
light bulb may break
when
being replaced.)
Turning
the
control
to the OFF position
does not remove
power
to the
light circuit.
Preparing
for
Vacation
For long
vacations
or absences,
remove
food
and unplug
the refrigerator.
Move the
temperature
control
dial to the
OFF
position,
and clean
the
interior
with
a baking
soda
solution
of one tablespoon
(15 ml) of baking
soda to one
quart
(1 liter) of water.
Leave the
doors
open.
Move the
switch
to the
OFF position
on the power
switch
model,
and shut
off the water
supply
to the refrigerator.
If the temperature
can drop
below
freezing,
have a qualified
servicer
drain
the water
supply
system
(on some models)
to
prevent
serious
property
damage
due to flooding.
Preparing
to
Move
Secure
all loose
items
such
as grille,
shelves
and drawers
by taping
them
securely
in place
to prevent
damage.
To
prevent
the doors
from
opening
while
moving,
secure
them
to the case with
tape.
Be sure the
refrigerator
stays
in an
upright
position
during
moving.
