The convertible meat pan has its own cold air duct to allow a stream of cold air from the freezer compartment to flow around

The variable temperature control regulates the air flow from the freezer compartment.

Set control lever up to convert the pan to normal refrigerator temperature and provide extra vegetable storage space. Cold air duct is turned off. Variable settings between these extremes can be selected.

Set control lever down to the coldest setting to store fresh meats. If lever is left in meat position for a long period of time, some frost may form on the inside of the pan.

Crisper Removal

Crispers can easily be removed by tilting up slightly and pulling past stop location.

If the door prevents you from taking out the crispers, the refrigerator will need to be rolled forward until the door opens enough to slide the crispers out. In some cases, when you roll the refrigerator out, you will need to move the refrigerator to the left as you roll it out.

When replacing the crispers, make sure you slide them through the crisper guides.
