REFRIGERATOR
CARE
Explosion
Hazard
Use
nonflammable
cleaner.
Failure
to
do so can result in death, explosion,
or
fire.
Both the refrigerator
and freezer sections
defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about
once a month to avoid
buildup
of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT:
Because
air circulates
between
both sections,
any
odors formed
in one section will transfer
to the other. You must
thoroughly
clean both sections to eliminate
odors. To avoid odor
transfer
and drying out of food,
wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean
Your
Refrigerator:
NOTE:
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring
cleansers,
flammable
fluids,
cleaning waxes,
concentrated
detergents,
bleaches
or cleansers
containing
petroleum
products
on plastic
parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets.
Do not use paper towels,
scouring
pads, or other harsh
cleaning
tools.
1.
Unplug refrigerator
or disconnect
power.
2.
Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable
parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly.
Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent
in warm water.
3.
Wash stainless
steel and painted metal exteriors
with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent
in warm water.
4.
There is no need for routine condenser
cleaning
in normal
home operating
environments.
If the environment
is
particularly
greasy or dusty, or there is significant
pet traffic
in
the home, the condenser
should be cleaned every 2 to
3 months to ensure maximum
efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Remove the base grille. See the "Door
Removal"
instructions,
either in the User Instructions
or the
Installation
Instructions
and Owner's
Manual, or in the
separate
instruction
sheet provided
with your refrigerator.
Use a vacuum
cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
5.
Plug in refrigerator
or reconnect
power.
The interior lights are LEDs that cannot
be changed.
If the interior lights do not illuminate
when either door is
opened,
call for assistance
or service.
See either the front
cover or the Warranty for contact
information.

and freeze other items.
2.
If your refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker
and is
connected
to the household
water supply, turn off the water
supply
to the refrigerator.
Property damage
can occur if the
water supply
is not turned
off.
3.
If you have an automatic
ice maker, turn off the ice maker.
NOTE: Depending
on your model,
raise the wire shutoff
arm to
OFF (up) position
or press the switch
to OFF (right).
4.
Empty the ice bin.
If You Choose to Turn 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 the model, turn the Refrigerator
Control to OFF
or turn cooling off. See "Using the Controls"
in the User
Instructions,
User Guide, or Use & Care Guide.
4.
Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
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

6.
Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
7.
Take out all removable
parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together
so they don't
shift and rattle during the move.
8.
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 "Adjust
the Doors"
or "Door
Removal,
Leveling
and Alignment."

Tape the doors closed
and tape the power cord to the back of
the refrigerator.
When you get to your new home, put everything
