If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep the door or
doors closed
(depending
on your model) to help food stay cold
and frozen.
If the power will be out for more than 24 hours, do one of the
following:
Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food
locker.
Place 2 Ibs (907 g) of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic foot
(28 L) of freezer space. This will keep the food frozen for 2 to
4 days.
If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available,
consume or can
perishable
food at once.
REMEMBER:
A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods.
If you see that food contains
ice crystals,
it may be
refrozen, although
the quality
and flavor may be affected.
If the
condition
of the food is poor, dispose of it.

Care
Your refrigerator
is equipped
with the Holiday Mode feature, which
is designed
for the traveler who wishes to turn off the lights and
ice maker. By selecting
this feature, the temperature
set points
remain unchanged,
the ice maker will be disabled
and the interior
lights will turn off. For most efficient
refrigerator
operation,
it is
recommended
to exit the Holiday
Mode when it is no longer
required.
If You Choose
to Leave the
Refrigerator
on While
You're
Away:
1.
Use up any perishables
and freeze other items.
2.
Press HOLIDAY MODE pad.
3.
If your refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker, shut off the
water supply
to the ice maker.
4.
Empty the ice bin.
5.
When you return from vacation,
press HOLIDAY MODE to
return to normal operation.
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, slide the ice maker control
to the OFF (down) position.
3.
Depending
on your model,
turn the Thermostat
Control
(or Refrigerator
Control) to OFE See "Using the Controls."
4.
Clean refrigerator,
wipe it, and dry well.
5.
Tape rubber or wood
blocks to the tops
of all doors to prop
them open far enough for air to get in. This stops
odor and
mold from building
up.
