To change the temperature, press and release the
WARMER or COLDER pad. The SET light will come on and the display will show the set temperature.
To change the temperature, tap either the
WARMER or COLDER pad until the desired temperature is displayed. Refrigerator temperatures can be adjusted between 34F and 44F and the freezer temperatures can be adjusted between
6F and +6F.
The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37F for the refrigerator compartment and 0F for the freezer compartment. Allow
24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended
The temperature controls can display both the SET temperature as well as the actual temperature in the refrigerator and freezer.
The actual temperature may vary slightly from the SET temperature based on usage and operating environment.
Setting either or both controls to OFF stops cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments, but does not shut off electrical power to the refrigerator.
NOTE: The refrigerator is shipped with protective film covering the temperature controls. If this film was not removed during installation, remove it now.
About the temperature controls.
How it Works
TurboCool rapidly cools the refrigerator compartment in order to more quickly cool foods. Use TurboCool when adding a large amount of food to the refrigerator compartment, putting away foods after they have been sitting out at room temperature or when putting away warm leftovers. It can also be used if the refrigerator has been without power for an extended period.
Once activated, the compressor will turn on immediately and the fans will cycle on and off at high speed as needed for eight hours.
The compressor will continue to run until the refrigerator compartment cools to approximately 34F (1C), then it will cycle on and off to maintain this setting. After
8 hours, or if TurboCool is pressed again, the refrigerator compartment will return to the original setting.
How to Use
Press TurboCool. The refrigerator temperature display will show TC.
After TurboCool is complete, the refrigerator compartment will return to the original
The refrigerator temperature cannot be changed during TurboCool.
The freezer temperature is not affected during
When opening the refrigerator door during
TurboCool, the fans will continue to run if they have cycled on.
How it Works
The new ClimateKeeper2 is the industrys most advanced refrigeration system, delivering optimum temperature and humidity performance to keep food fresh longer and reduce freezer burn, while maintaining E star-level efficiency.
The new ClimateKeeper2 system features two evaporatorsone for the refrigerator and one for the freezer.
This provides two separate cooling systems for the entire unit, and separates the airflow between the fresh food and freezer sections during normal cooling operations.*
This ensures that the humidity levels in the fresh food section are significantly higher than in a conventional system,** allowing fresh produce and other unsealed foods to retain their moisture content and freshness longer. Moisture sensitive foods such as fresh fruit, salads, rice, etc., can now be stored on open shelves without excessive moisture loss. Due to the higher humidity in the refrigerator, you may on occasion experience fog or small amounts of moisture in the refrigerator compartment.
This is normal and may come and go as different food loads and environmental conditions change. Wipe dry with a paper towel if desired.
The separate airflow system minimizes the mixing of air between the two compartments, which reduces odor transfer, resulting in improved taste of ice.
The ClimateKeeper2 system also reduces the number of defrosting cycles in the freezer evaporator, thereby improving the temperature maintained in the freezer and reducing freezer burn.
*Freezer air is used in the CustomCool feature.
**Testing shows a higher level of humidity in the Fresh Food section in ClimateKeeper2 refrigerators versus conventional units.
The CustomCool feature is a system of dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor and a heater. Depending on the function selected, a combination of these will be used to quickly chill items, thaw items or hold the pan at a specific temperature.
