Adjust the Doors
■ Your refrigerator has two adjustable, front leveling screws –
one on each side of the refrigerator base. If your refrigerator
seems unsteady or you want the door to close easier, use the
■ Before moving the refrigerator, raise the leveling screws so the
front rollers are touching the floor.
1. Remove the base grille. Grasp the grille firmly and pull it
2. Raise or lower the cabinet.
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
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
The control center is located at the top front of the refrigerator
For your convenience, your temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended set points as shown.
■ 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
■ When the power is on, the temperature display shows the
actual temperature of the compartment.
■ 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 temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
■ 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.
