Cleaning care – Exterior

Exterior (all models)

Stainless exterior doors

  • It is important when cleaning the exterior door surface of your refrigerator, to only use liquid dishwashing detergent dissolved in warm water and a soft cloth.
  • Dry the door with a clean, lint free cloth.
  • The use of any abrasive or stainless steel cleaners and solvents will damage the door surface.

Other exterior surfaces (all models)

  • Clean all other exterior surfaces with a mix of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent, and a soft cloth.
  • If necessary, clean the magnetic door gasket and the centre door gaskets with an old toothbrush, warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent.

Rear compartment cover (model dependent)

  • To maximize operating efficiency regularly vacuum the flooring around your appliance.
  • Cleaning behind the appliance is required once or twice a year. More frequent cleaning may be necessary for dusty homes or those with pets shedding hair.
  • To do this wind up the feet and carefully ease the refrigerator out of its position. Switch off and unplug.
  • Vacuum the flooring behind your appliance and around the rear compartment cover to remove dust accumulation. Use a dry lint-free cloth to clean the appliance walls and surrounding cabinetry.
  • After cleaning, plug in and switch on. Push the appliance into position and wind feet down.

Drip tray (Ice & Water models only)

  • To clean, take the tray out of the dispenser panel and pull the two halves of the tray apart.
  • Clean in warm water with a mild detergent. Dry the tray and clip back together.
  • Reinsert the tray back into the dispenser panel.
