FOOD STORAGE GUIDE

Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator.

For dated products. check date code to ensure freshness.

Butter or margarine Keep opened butter in a covered dish or closed compartment.

When storing an extra supply. wrap in freezer packaging and freeze.

Cheese Store in the original wrapping until you are ready to use it. Once opened. rewrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

Milk I Wipe milk cartons.

For best storage. place milk on interior shelf. not on door shelf.

STORING FROZEN FOOD

NOTE: Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook for further information about preparing food for freezing or food storage times.

Freezing Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large quantity of food.

Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 lbs. of food per cubic foot of freezer space).

Leave enough space in the freezer for air to circulate around packages.

Be careful to leave enough room at the front so the door can close tightly.

Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food. the type of packaging or wrap used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and the storage temperature.

Ice crystals inside a sealed package are normal.

This simply means that moisture in the food and air inside the package have condensed. creating ice crystals.

NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes. then package and freeze.

Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy.

Eggs

Fruit

Leafy vegeta bies

Vegetables with skins (carrats. peppers)

Fish

Leftovers

I Store in originat carton on interior shelf. not on door shelf.

Do not wash or hull the fruit until it is ready to be used. Sort and keep fruit in its original container. in a crisper. or store in a completely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.

Remove store wrapping and trim or tear off bruised and discolored areas. Wash in cold water and drain.

Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage.

Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and can lead to water leakage or flooding.

Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.

CAUTION: To prevent burns and product damage. only connect the refrigerator water line to a cold water supply.

If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line. make sure the icemaker is turned OFF at the control panel.

CAUTION: Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.

WATER PRESSURE

A cold water supply.

The water pressure must be between 20 and 120 psi. If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20 psi). you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.

If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis system is Jess than 20 psi or 138 kPa or 1.4 kgf/cm 2 (takes more than 4.0 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity):

Check to see if the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis

Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy usage.

If the issue concerning water pressure from reverse osmosis remains. call a licensed. qualified plumber.

All installations must be in accordance with local

CAUTION: Wear eye protection during installation to prevent injury.
