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:
Raise wire shutoff
arm to OFF (up) position
or move the
switch
to the OFF (right) setting.
Shut off water supply
to the ice maker.
3.
Empty the ice bin.
If you choose
to turn
the
refrigerator
off 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 move the switch
to the OFF
(right) setting.
3.
Depending
on your model,
turn the Thermostat
Control
or
Refrigerator

section.
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 move the switch
to the OFF
(right) setting.
2.
Remove all food from the refrigerator
and pack all frozen food
in dry ice.

section.
5.
Unplug the refrigerator.
6.
Empty water from the defrost
pan.
7.
Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
8.
Take out all removable
parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together
so they don't
shift and rattle during the move.
9.
Depending
on the model, raise the front of the refrigerator
so
it rolls more easily OR screw
in the leveling
legs so they don't
scrape
the floor. See the "Door Closing"
or "Leveling
Your
Refrigerator"
section.
10. Tape the doors
shut and the power cord to the refrigerator
cabinet.
When you get to your new home, put everything
back and refer to
the "Refrigerator

section for preparation
instructions.
Also, if your refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker, remember
to
reconnect
the water supply
to the refrigerator.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the
cost of an unnecessary service call.
Your
refrigerator
will not operate
Is the power supply cord unplugged?
Plug into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
Has
a household
fuse
or
circuit
breaker
tripped?
Replace
the fuse or reset the circuit
breaker.
Is the refrigerator
or freezer
control turned
to the OFF
position?
See
the
"Setting
or Using the
Controls"
section.
Is the
refrigerator
defrosting?
Recheck
to see if the
refrigerator
is operating
in 30 minutes. Your refrigerator
will
regularly
run an automatic
defrost
cycle.
The lights do not work
Is the power supply cord unplugged?
Plug into a grounded
3 prong outlet.
Is a light
bulb
loose
in the socket
or burned
out?
See the
"Changing
the Light Bulb(s)"
section.
There is water in the defrost drain pan
Is the refrigerator
defrosting?
The water will evaporate.
It is
normal for water to drip into the defrost
pan.
Is
it more humid than normal?
When it is humid, expect that
the water in the defrost
pan will take longer to evaporate.
The motor seems to run too much
Is the room temperature
hotter than normal?
The motor
will run longer under warm conditions.
At normal room
temperatures,
expect your motor to run about
40% to 80% of
the time. Under warmer
conditions,
it will run even more.
Has a large amount
of
food
just been added to the
refrigerator?
Adding
a
large
amount
of
food warms
the
refrigerator.
The
motor normally
will run
longer to
cool
the
refrigerator
back down.
Are the doors
opened
often?
The motor will run longer
when this occurs.
Conserve
energy by getting
all items out at
one time, keeping
food organized,
and closing
the door as
soon as possible.
Are the controls
not
set correctly
for the surrounding
conditions?
Refer to the "Setting
or Using the Controls"
section.
Are the doors
not closed completely?
Close the doors
firmly. If they do not close completely,
see "The doors
will not
close completely"
later in this section.
Are the condenser
coils dirty?
This prevents air transfer
and
makes the motor work
harder. Clean the condenser
coils.
Refer to the "Cleaning"
section.
Are the door gaskets
not sealed all the way around?
Contact
a technician
or other qualified
person.
NOTE:
Your new refrigerator
will run longer than your old one
due to its high-efficiency
motor.
