Adjusting the Controls

For your convenience, your refrigerator and freezer controls are
preset at the factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make
sure that the controls are still set to the “mid-settings.” The
factory recommended set points are 38°F (3°C) for the
refrigerator and 0°F (-18°C) for the freezer.


Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.

NOTE: Adjusting the set points to a colder than
recommended setting will not cool the compartments any

If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not
blocked before adjusting the controls.

The preset temperatures should be correct for normal
household usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or
juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.

Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments. Recheck the
temperatures before other adjustments are made.

To view and adjust the set points, press and hold TEMP for
3 seconds. When adjust mode is activated, adjusting information
will appear on the display screen.

NOTE: To view Celsius temperatures, press the LIGHT button
when adjust mode is activated. To return the display setting to
Fahrenheit, press LIGHT again.

When adjust mode is activated, the display screen shows the
refrigerator set point and “FRIDGE” appears.

Press LOCK to raise the set point, or press OPTIONS to lower
the set point.

When you have finished viewing (and adjusting if desired) the
refrigerator set point, press TEMP to change the display to
show the freezer set point. When the zone has been changed,
“FREEZER” appears on the display screen.

Press LOCK to raise the set point, or press OPTIONS to lower
the set point.

When you have finished viewing (and adjusting if desired)
both the refrigerator and freezer set points, press
MEASURED FILL “Confirm” to save the settings.

NOTE: To exit without saving changes, press ICE TYPE
“Back” at any time while in adjust mode, or allow about
60 seconds of inactivity and adjust mode will turn off

When adjusting temperature set points, use the following chart as
a guide.

The set point range for the refrigerator is 33°F to 45°F (0°C to

turned off.

or changing other settings, be sure to press both buttons at
exactly the same time.
