Energy Saving Tips

• Avoid overcrowding refrigerator shelves. This reduces air circulation around food and causes refrigerator to run longer.

• Avoid adding too much warm food to refrigerator at one time. This overloads compartments and slows rate of cooling.

• Do not use aluminum foil. wax paper. or paper toweling as shelf liners. This decreases air flow and

• A freezer that is two-thirds full runs most efficiently.

Locate refrigerator in coolest part of room. Avoid areas of direct sunlight. or near heating ducts. registers or other heat producing appliances.

If this is

Clean door gaskets every three months according to cleaning instructions.

This will assure that door seals properly and refrigerator runs efficiently.

• Take time to organize items in refrigerator to reduce time that door is open.

• Be sure your doors are closing securely by leveling refrigerator as instructed in your installation instructions.

• Clean condenser coils as indicated in the cleaning instructions every three months. This will increase energy efficiency and cooling performance.
