Almost all foods have some of it, so the serving size becomes important. For a low-potassium diet avoid LARGE servings of
- whole grain bread, brans, granola
- sports drinks, all milk products, soy milk
- apricots, avocado, bananas, melons, oranges, pears, dried fruits
- baked beans, raw cabbage, raw carrots, olives, potato, pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes, most bean types
- clams, most fish, most beef types
- salt free soups, low-salt and salt substituted foods = avoid these completely
- peanut butter, peanuts, chocolate
Note that this list is NOT exhaustive and can be eaten in smaller quantities, 1/2 cup or so.
Low potassium foods are
- white flour and white breads
= cakes and pies without chocolate or high-K fruits or nuts
- apples, apricots, blackberries, cherries, grapes, mandarins, peaches (drain syrup off), pineapple, plums, strawberries
- asparagus, green beans, cooked cabbage and carrots, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, lettuce, fresh mushrooms (not canned), onions, green peas, zucchini
- chicken, turkey, tuna fish, eggs
- almonds, cashews (1 oz)
- cheddar chesse, cottage chess (1 oz)
Again this list is NOT exhaustive. For complete info see a dietician, or do an exhaustive Google search eg

Low potassium diet


High potassium food: potatoes, bananas, whole grains, milk, and tomato products. Low potassium food: berries, squash, corn, rice, poultry, fish and non-dairy substitutes. To lower potassium levels in potattoes, cut them into tiny pieces, soak them in water, then drain off (discard) the water.

What should a Hotpoint fridge temperature be?

Your Hotpoint fridge is designed to operate at a temperature ranging from 0.5 degrees in the coldest part up to 5 degrees inthe warmest part.

As warm air rises and cold air falls it is safe to say that the best way to store your food is to place it in the most appropriate shelf compartment, as shown in the diagram below.

Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods


You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.

Bottom vegetable/fruit drawer freezing fruit


to the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom drawer.in some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off
