Freezer Tips

If the unit is not self-defrosting and the temperatures begin to rise...

1. Check the frost buildup on the inside of the freezer. If it is heavily frosted, manually defrost the freezer by turning it off at the thermostat. Unplug from the wall and allow 12 hours for the unit to defrost, with both doors open. If the unit is not an automatic self-defrosting model...

2. Defrost the unit once a year or as often as needed. Follow the proper defrosting methods. DO NOT USE a knife, pick, hammer, chisel, screwdriver, etc. or any sharp object)

Disposal Tips

If the unit jams/hums...

1. Turn the unit off. After turning the unit off, remove anything that has fallen into the grinding chamber.

2. Turn the unit off. After turning the unit off, insert an "unjamming" tool, (if originally supplied with your unit) into the bottom and turn clockwise. Once the tool turns freely, remove whatever was causing the jam.

3. If the unit is dead, press the red reset button located on the bottom of the disposal - if the unit begins to hum and the reset trips again, it is still jammed. Repeat step #2 and #3.

Dryer Tips

If the clothes are not getting dry...

1. Make sure the dryer is not pushed back against the rear exhaust duct causing an air flow restriction.

2. Make sure the clothes are coming out of the washer spun damp dry. If the washer is not spinning the clothes damp dry, the dryer will not dry the clothes in a normal amount of time.

3. Turning your clothes inside out and using the delicate cycle can reduce the pilling effect on certain fabrics.
