ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System

Keep ingredients fresh with a sensor-controlled system that detects when either the refrigerator or freezer is above the correct temperature. The sensors monitor airflow within your refrigerator and trigger the compressor to activate a fan that directs cool air into the desired compartment. This helps to quickly lower temperatures to their appropriate level.
