GE® 3.7 Cu. Ft. Spacemaker® Refrigerator TAX4DNYWH user guide

Manual defrost.
Operating Instructions

The control will look like one of the above.

Control Settings

The temperature control maintains the temperature in the refrigerator. Setting the control at COOL is the warmest setting. Setting the control at COLDEST is the coldest setting. Set the control at COLD.

Installation Instructions

Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the COLD temperature. If you want a colder or warmer temperature, move the dial one setting at a time. Moving the control to OFF stops cooling but does not turn off the power to the refrigerator. Setting the control to one of the snowflake positions may cause freezing in the refrigerator depending on the room temperature.

How To Test Temperatures

Use the milk test. Place a container of milk on a shelf and check it a day later. If the milk is too warm or too cold, adjust the temperature control.

After changing the control, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the temperature you have set.

About the inside of the refrigerator.

Troubleshooting Tips

To remove a shelf, lift up the back slightly and pull forward. Some models have multiposition shelves that can be moved to different levels.

Ice Tray Compartment

Customer Service

This compartment is designed for production of ice cubes and short-term storage (a few days at most) of some commercially-frozen foods when in contact with the evaporator (cold surface in compartment.)

Door Shelves

Shelves on the door provide convenient storage for frequently used items.

Some models have doors that are deep enough to store large bottles.

Cleaning the Outside

Keep the outside clean. Wipe with a clean cloth lightly dampened with kitchen appliance wax or mild liquid dish detergent.

Dry and polish with a clean, soft cloth.

Do not wipe the refrigerator with a soiled dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave a residue that can erode the paint. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners containing bleach because these products can scratch and weaken the paint finish.

Safety Instructions

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Protect the paint finish. The finish on the outside of the refrigerator is a high quality, baked-on paint finish. With proper care, it will stay new-looking and rust-free for years.

Apply a coat of kitchen/appliance wax when the refrigerator is new, and then at least twice a year.

Cleaning the Inside

To help prevent odors, leave an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator.

Installation Instructions

Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. If this is not practical, wring excess moisture out of sponge or cloth when cleaning around the control.

Other parts of the refrigeratorincluding door gaskets, fruit and vegetable drawers, and all plastic partscan be cleaned the

Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in the dishwasher.

Use warm water and baking soda solution about a tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to a quart (1 L) of water. This both cleans and neutralizes odors. Rinse and wipe dry.


Troubleshooting Tips

Defrost whenever frost on the wall of the ice tray compartment becomes 1/4 ? thick. Never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove frost as it may damage the cooling coils.

(A punctured cooling coil will cause serious problems and void the warranty.) We recommend using a plastic scraper. Do not use any electrical device in defrosting your refrigerator.

To defrost, remove foods and ice trays from the ice tray compartment. Set the temperature control dial at OFF position.

Defrosting usually takes a few hours.

To defrost faster, keep the door open.

Also, pouring warm (not hot) water on the frosted part may speed defrosting.

Do not use boiling waterit may damage plastic parts.

After defrosting, empty water from the drip tray. Wash the drip tray in warm water. Wipe the ice tray compartment with a damp cloth. Then turn the temperature control to the desired setting and return food and ice trays to the refrigerator.

NOTE: If ice buildup is very thick, it may keep the ice tray compartment door from opening or closing completely. Dont try to force it open; after defrosting, the door will open and close easily.

Preparing to Move

Secure all loose items such as shelves and ice trays by taping them securely in place to prevent damage.
