How to Use the Humidity Control or Energy Saver Feature

Are the controls set correctly?

Certain refrigerators are equipped with a separate control to prevent exterior moisture from forming on the vertical hinged seal. Within the seal is a heater that warms the surface to prevent exterior moisture. 

     

Energy Saver (Some Models):

The Energy Saver Feature controls a heater, that helps to reduce moisture on the vertical hinged seal. To turn the heater on, turn the Energy Saver switch to the "off" position.

NOTE: Controls will vary depending on the type of refrigeration that you have.  For specific instructions, for your model, please see the Use and Care Guide

Energy Saver Example

To operate this feature, follow these instructions:

  • To turn on the Energy Saver feature, touch ENERGY SAVER to activate the feature. When the feature is ON, the Energy Saver icon will blink 3 times and then appear on the display screen. The Energy Saver feature will remain ON until manually turned off.
  • To manually turn off the Energy Saver feature, touch ENERGY SAVER. When the feature has been turned off, the Energy Saver icon will disappear from the display.

Energy Saver Example 

 

To operate this feature, follow these instructions:

  • Press the control to "On" to save energy when the environment is less humid. 
  • Press the control to "Off" when the environment is warm and more humid, or if moisture is noticed on the vertical hinged seal.

Humidity Control (Some Models):

The Humidity Control Feature turns on the heater to help reduce moisture on the vertical hinged seal.  On some models press the Humidity Control pad once. The Humidity Control indicator light will illuminate and the heater will be turned on.      

Other models will use a touch pad interface to activate the Humidity Control. See your Use and Care Guide for instructions on how to turn the Humidity Control off and on. If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.

Automatic Heater (Some Models)

Models that do not have an "Energy Saver" or a "Humidity Control"  feature, may have an automatic heater.  This means there is no option to turn on the heater, the control will automatically turn the vertical hinged seal heater on as needed. See your Use and Care Guide for specific information on your Refrigerator.
