Maintenance Tips

Keep the Drain Pan Clean
If you have an automatic defrosting refrigerator it is important to keep the drain and the drain pan clear. Water from the melting frost should flow through the floor drain and into a pan where it will evaporate. Food particles can clog the drain and cause odors. Here are some tips to clean your drain.

Remove the stopper.

Using a pipe cleaner or similar device, push any accumulations through to the drain pan below.

Use a solution made from soap, ammonia, and water through the drain.
Empty the pan and wash it.
Refrigerator Temperature Settings
Generally 37 degrees F is ideal for the refrigerator compartment and 0 degrees F for the freezer.
