The Temperature Control is located on the back wall of the
refrigerator compartment. It controls the temperature in
both the refrigerator and freezer compartments. When you
plug in the refrigerator of the first time, set the Temperature
Control knob to "5". Temperature Control adjustments
range from 1 (warmest) to 9 (coldest).
®<30
<19
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food
into the refrigerator. The control is set correctly when milk
or juice is as cold as you like and ice cream is firm. Move
the dial one number at a time, and wait 24 hours between
adjustments.
NOTE: During high humidity, moisture may form on the
outside of the cabinet. To prevent rust, dry the cabinet and
reset the Temperature Control to a colder setting.
IMPORTANT: If you add food before the refrigerator has
cooled completely, your food may spoil. Turning the
Temperature Control to a higher (colder) than
recommended setting will not cool the compartments
any faster.
Storing Fresh Food
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 code date to
ensure freshness.
Butter or margarine
Keep opened butter in 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
Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place milk on
interior shelf.
Eggs
Store in original carton on interior shelf.
Fruit
Wash, let dry, and store in refrigerator in plastic bags or
crisper. Do not wash or hull berries until they are ready
to use. Sort and keep berries in original container in a
crisper, or store in a loosely closed paper bag on a
refrigerator shelf.
Leafy vegetables
Remove store wrapping and trim or tear off bruised and
discolored areas. Wash in cold water and drain. Place in
plastic bag or plastic container and store in crisper.
Vegetables with skins (carrots, peppers)
Place in plastic bags or plastic container and store in
crisper.
Fish
Use fresh fish and shellfish the same day as purchased.
Meat
Store most meat in original wrapping as long as it is
airtight and moisture-proof. Rewrap if necessary. See
