Microwave Safety Tip

Standard

Never use metal in a microwave, metal reflects the microwaves causing them to arc and spark, this could cause fire or burn out your oven. Oils also do not heat well in a microwave because of their lack of polarity and can destroy your cookware. Cookware should be made of hard paper, glass or ceramic. Scientists have found developmental and neurological damage in lab animals exposed to food cooked in plastic.

Reasons for Ice Machine Malfunctions:

Standard

Reasons for Ice Machine Malfunctions:

  • Freezer is too warm.
    Freezer temperature must be between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit for your ice maker to function properly.
  • Ice maker switch issues.
    This switch is often accidentally shut off, but may also be defective.
  • Water inlet valve is defective.
    When this electromechanical valve malfunctions, the water supply is cut off.
  • Low water pressure.
    Inadequate water pressure, less than 20 psi, can restrict water supply to your ice machine.

Refrigerator-Freezer Energy Tips

Standard
  • Don’t keep your refrigerator or freezer too cold. Recommended temperatures are 35°-38°F for the fresh food compartment and 0° F for separate freezers for long-term storage.
  • Check the refrigerator temperature by placing an appliance thermometer in a glass of water in the center of the refrigerator. Read it after 24 hours. Check the freezer temperature by placing a thermometer between frozen packages. Read it after 24 hours.
  • Make sure your refrigerator door seals are airtight. Test them by closing the door over a piece of paper or a dollar bill so it is half in and half out of the refrigerator. If you can pull the paper or bill out easily, the latch may need adjustment, the seal may need replacing, or you may consider buying a new unit.
  • Cover liquids and wrap foods stored in the refrigerator. Uncovered foods release moisture and make the compressor work harder.
  • Regularly defrost manual-defrost freezers and refrigerators; frost buildup decreases the energy efficiency of the unit. Don’t allow frost to build up more than one-quarter of an inch.

ENERGY STAR<sup>&reg;</sup> Refrigerators Are Cool! ENERGY STAR-qualified refrigerators use 15% less energy than non-qualified models. Models with top-mounted freezers use 10%-25% less energy than side-by-side or bottom-mount units.
