Owner's Guide Refrigerator




Your refrigerator will automatically maintain the temperature level you select. The temperature control dial has 7 settings. 1 is the warmest. 7 is the coldest. At first, set the dial to 4 and allow 24 hours to pass before adjusting the temperature to your needs.

To adjust the temperature range in the cold setting, turn the temperature dial in a clockwise direction. For normal operating conditions, keep the dial halfway between cold and coldest.

For your convenience, the factory presets the control at normal operating conditions.

NOTE: If the refrigerator has been placed in a horizontal or tilted position for any period of time wait 24 hours before plugging the unit in.

Freezer Section

Your freezer compartment is equipped with adjustable temperature control. For your convenience, temperature is preset by the factory to the colder setting. There is also an option to adjust the settings, either to cold or to coldest.


Your refrigerator is equipped with an interior light in the fresh food section for you to easily locate your food.


You should never need to defrost your freezer, as it automatically defrosts any ice build-up that may occur.

DANGER - RISK OF FIRE OR EXPLOSION: Flammable refrigerant used. Do not use mechanical devices to defrost refrigerator or freezer. Do not puncture refrigerant tubing.


(Shelves may vary by model)

The shelves of your refrigerator were designed with you in mind. Their varied adjustability allows you to satisfy your personal storage needs.

To remove or adjust a full-width slideout shelf: (see Fig. 9)

  1. Gently tilt the shelf up and slide forward until the shelf has been completely removed.
  2. To replace the shelf, select the desired setting and gently slide the shelf back until it rests in the locking position.


To remove and install the crisper: (see Fig. 10)

  1. Grip the crisper firmly and slide out completely.
  2. Replace the crisper by placing the crisper properly in position and gently sliding it back into place.

Your refrigerator may be equipped with a slide control to raise or lower the humidity levels or your crispers. This feature will increase the storage life of your fruits and vegetables. Simply adjust the controls to the appropriate setting for items you are storing in the crispers. Low settings allow moist air to exit the crisper, for optimum storage of fruit and/or vegetables that have skins. High settings retains moist air in the crisper, for optimum storage of leafy fresh vegetables.


  1. Carefully grasp the crisper cover and slide out to remove. (Fig. 12)
  2. To replace, slide the rear of the crisper cover into the right and left slots above the crisper area and gently slide back into place.


WARNING: Before cleaning your refrigerator, ALWAYS unplug it from the power source. Failure to heed this warning could result in injury or death from electric shock.

NOTE: Before using any cleaning products, be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions and warnings. This will help avoid personal injury or damage to property.


Prepare a cleaning solution of 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with warm water. Use a sponge or soft cloth, dampened with the cleaning solution, to wipe the inside of your refrigerator.


  • 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/ freezer parts in the dishwasher.

Do not use harsh chemicals, ammonia, chlorine bleach, concentrated detergent, solvents, abrasives or metal scouring pads to clean your refrigerator, inside or out. They can damage and/or discolor the refrigerator finish.


Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth with kitchen appliance wax or a mild detergent to clean the exterior of the refrigerator.

Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth with warm soapy water to clean the handles and trim. Use a clean, soft towel to dry.

For stainless steel models, use a dry cloth and stainless steel polish.

Door gaskets should be cleaned every three months following the instructions for interior cleaning. Clean gaskets will maintain a better seal than dirty gaskets. Lightly apply petroleum jelly to the hinge side of the gaskets to keep the gasket pliable and assure a good seal.

Never use a dirty cloth to clean the exterior of the refrigerator. Dirty cloths may leave residue on the refrigerator that can damage the finish. Also, avoid the use of harsh chemicals, ammonia, chlorine bleach, concentrated detergent, solvents, abrasives or metal scouring pads to clean the outside of the refrigerator.


WARNING: Do not change the LED light by yourself. Please contact the after-sales service for replacement. Failure to heed this warning could result in injury or death from electric shock.


In the event of a power interruption, unplug your refrigerator from the power source. Avoid opening the doors until after power has been restored. Your refrigerator will maintain a cold temperature for longer if door opening is avoided or kept to a minimum.

Once power has been restored, plug your refrigerator back into the power source and inspect food in the refrigerator for spoilage or thawing. Cleaning your refrigerator after a prolonged power outage is strongly recommended to avoid odors and potential health hazards due to thawing.


For long vacations or absences, unplug your refrigerator and remove all food from it. Clean the refrigerator, including the gaskets, according to the Proper Care and Maintenance section. Leave the doors propped open to allow air to circulate inside the refrigerator.


Before moving your refrigerator, empty the food from it and use adhesive tape to secure all loose items such as shelves, door bins and racks, crispers and pans, etc. Unplug the refrigerator. Always move the refrigerator in an upright position in order to avoid damaging the sealed refrigerant system.



  • The new high efficiency compressor may run faster and longer than your old refrigerator and you may hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while it is operating.
  • You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors close. This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.

  • You may hear the fans spinning at high speeds. This happens when the refrigerator is first plugged in, when the doors are opened frequently or when a large amount of food is added to the refrigerator or freezer compartments. The fans are helping to maintain the correct temperatures.
  • The fans change speeds in order to provide optimal cooling and energy savings.


  • You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator is first plugged in. This happens as the refrigerator cools to the correct temperature.
  • Expansion and contraction of cooling coils during and after defrost can cause a cracking or popping sound.


  • The flow of refrigerant through the cooling coils may make a gurgling noise like boiling water.
  • Water dropping on the defrost heater can cause a sizzling, popping or buzzing sound during the defrost cycle.
  • A water dripping noise may occur during the defrost cycle as ice melts from the evaporator and flows into the drain pan.
  • Closing the door may cause a gurgling sound due to pressure equalization.

If the refrigerator has been placed in a horizontal position for any period of time, wait 24 hours after returning it to the upright position before plugging it in.

IMPORTANT: During the automatic defrost cycle, you may notice a red glow in the vents on the back wall of your freezer compartment. This is normal during the defrost cycle.
