2. Using a

¹⁄₄" hex driver, turn the leveling screw on each side to

raise or lower that side of the refrigerator.

NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws. This
makes it easier to turn the screws. It may take several turns of
the leveling screw to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.

To raise, turn the leveling screw clockwise.

To lower, turn the leveling screw counterclockwise.

3. Open the door again to make sure that it closes as easily as

you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by
turning both leveling screws clockwise. It may take several
more turns, and you should turn both screws the same

4. Replace the base grille.


Opening and Closing Doors

(French door models)

There are two refrigerator compartment doors. The doors can be
opened and closed either separately or together.

There is a vertically-hinged seal on the left refrigerator door.

When the left side door is opened, the hinged seal
automatically folds inward so that it is out of the way.

When both doors are closed, the hinged seal automatically
forms a seal between the two doors.

Using the Controls

Your model may have either Electronic, Dial or Digital Controls.


Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has
cooled completely, your food may spoil.

NOTE: Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer Controls to a
higher (colder) than recommended setting will not cool the
compartments any faster.

The recommended settings should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream
is firm.

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.

Electronic and Dial Controls

For your convenience, the temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended setting as shown.

Style 1

Recommended Setting “4”

Style 2

Recommended Setting “4”

To Turn Off/On:

Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a
dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays.
Neither compartment will cool.

Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word OFF. Neither
compartment will cool when the freezer is set to OFF.

Energy Saver Option (on some models)

The energy saver option turns off the heater which helps to
reduce moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses
more energy when Energy Saver is off.

Press the control to ON to save energy when the environment
is less humid.

Press the control to OFF when the environment is warm and
more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.
