Power Failure/
Freezer Failure
Do not open freezer door
unnecessarily
if
freezer
is
off
for
several 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 Pages under "Dry Ice,"
"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"
in
the Avoid
Service Checklist Section of this manual. If you cannot solve the problem, call an
authorized servicer
immediately.
If the freezer remains offfor several hours, follow the directions above for the use
of dry ice during a power failu re. If necessary, take the food to a local locker plant
until the freezer is ready to operate. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Frozen Food
Locker Plants."
EnergySavingldeas
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. Foods that freeze
too slowly may lose quality, or spoil.
Be sure 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.
