SAVETHESEINSTRUCTIONS

Proper Disposal of Your Old Refrigerator

Suffocation Hazard

Remove doors from your old refrigerator.

Failure to do so can result in death or brain damage.

IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous even if they will sit for "just a few days." If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator. please follow these instructions to help prevent accidents.

Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer: Takeoff the doors.

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Excessive Weight Hazard

Use two or more people to move and install refrigerator.

Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

Remove the Packaging

Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on the refrigerator.

Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your fingers.

Wipe with warm water and dry.

Do not use sharp instruments. rubbing alcohol. flammable fluids. or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your refrigerator.

For more information. see "Refrigerator Safety."

On some models. shelves. bins. door shelf rails. and other feature parts may be packaged in the Interior FeaturePak.

Follow the instructions contained in the package for proper assembly.

There are four bolts that secure the refrigerator to the shipping case. Keep these bolts because they are the refrigerator's leveling legs.

Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.

IMPORTANT: Do not remove the white foam air return insert that is located behind the control panel on the ceiling of the refrigerator (on some models). The insert is part of the refrigerator and not part of the packing material. If the insert is removed. ice may migrate down from the freezer and cause icicles to form.

When Moving Your Refrigerator:

Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for cleaning or service. be sure to cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or "walk" the refrigerator when trying to move it. as floor damage could occur.

Clean Before Using

After you remove all of the package materials. clean the inside of your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in "Refrigerator Care."

Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact. such as bumping.

Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small. pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid dropping.

Explosion Hazard

Keep flammable materials and vapors. such as gasoline. away from refrigerator.

Failure to do so can result in death. explosion. or fire.

To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator. allow for a 1/2" (12.70 mm) space on each side. Allow 3" (7.5 cm) of space between overhead cabinets and refrigerator top. Allow at least 1" (25.40 mm) between back of cabinet and the wall. If your refrigerator has an ice maker. make sure you leave some extra space at the back for the water line connections.

If you are installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall. leave 2" (5.08 cm) minimum on the hinge side (depending on your model) to allow for the door to swing open.

Level the refrigerator.

See "Adjust the Doors."

NOTE: It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator near an oven. radiator. or other heat source.

Do not install in a location where the temperature will fall below 55°F (13°C).

See "Using the Control(s)."

Read all directions before you begin.

IMPORTANT:

If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is connected. turn the ice maker OFE

All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.

Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing only in areas where the household temperatures will remain above freezing.

TOOLS NEEDED: Flat-blade screwdriver.

7s" and 1/2"open-end wrenches or 2 adjustable wrenches.

1/4"nut driver and drill bit. cordless drill. Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.

Read and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed.

NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a 1/4" (6.35 mm) saddle-type shutoff valve. a union. and copper tubing.

Before purchasing. make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your local plumbing codes.

Do not use a piercing-type or ¾s" (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.

Water Pressure

A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure. call a licensed. qualified plumber.

Reverse Osmosis Water Supply If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply. the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).

If the ice maker is still not operating properly: Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked.

Replace the filter if necessary.

Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy usage.

If you have questions about your water pressure. call a licensed. qualified plumber.

Your refrigerator has two front adjustable rollers - one on the right and one on the left. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you want the doors to close easier. adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the instructions below.

Depending on your model. your refrigerator may have leveling legs (Style 1) or leveling screws (Style 2). They are part of the front roller assemblies which are found at the base of the refrigerator on either side.

Turn the leveling legs or leveling screws to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator or to the left to lower that side. It may take several turns to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.

NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws and rollers. This makes it easier to adjust the screws.

Open both doors again and be sure that they close as easily as you like. If not. tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by turning both leveling screws to the right. It may take several more turns. and you should turn both leveling screws the same amount.

Style I

Style 2

Using a level. be sure that the refrigerator is still level side to side. Readjust if necessary.

REFRIGERATOR USE

The temperature control is located at the top of the refrigerator compartment.

It controls the temperature in both the refrigerator and freezer compartments.

For your convenience. the Temperature Control is preset at the factory. When you first install your refrigerator. make sure that the control is still preset to the mid-setting as shown.

NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off. turn the refrigerator control to the word OFF or until the word OFF appears. Your product will not cool when the refrigerator control is set to OFF.

IM PORTANT:

Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator.

If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely. your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.

Adjusting Controls

The mid-setting indicated in the previous section should be correct for normal household usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.

If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or freezer. first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.

If you need to adjust temperatures. use the settings listed in the chart below as a guide. Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments and then recheck the temperatures.

CONDITION/REASON: ADJUSTMENT:

REFRIGERATOR section too warm Adjust REFRIGERATOR Door opened often. large amount or TEMPERATURE of food added or room Control one setting temperature very warm higher

FREEZER section too warm/ice not made fast enough

Door opened often. or large amount of food added or very cold room temperature (can't cycle often enough)

Heavy ice usage

REFRIGERATOR section too cold

Controls not set correctly for your conditions

Adjust FREEZER or TEMPERATURE Control one setting higher

Adjust REFRIGERATOR or TEMPERATURE Control one setting lower

FREEZER section too cold

Controls not set correctly for your conditions

Adjust FREEZER or TEMPERATURE Control one setting lower

Turning the Ice Maker On/Off

To turn the ice maker ON. simply lower the wire shutoff arm.

To manually turn the ice maker OFF. lift the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.

NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff.

As ice is made. the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position.

Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.

Ice Production Rate

Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the first three batches of ice produced.

The ice maker should produce approximately 8 to 12 batches of ice in a 24-hour period.

To increase ice production. lower the freezer and refrigerator temperature.

See "Using the Control(s)." Wait 24 hours between adjustments.

For maximum ice production (on some models). push the switch to ICE PLUS. The ice maker should produce 16 to 20 batches of ice in a 24-hour period in the Ice Plus mode.

Remember

The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided. make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well maintained.

Do not use anything sharp to break up the ice in the bin. This can cause damage to the ice container and the dispenser mechanism.

Do not store anything on top of or in the ice maker or ice bin.

REFRIGERATOR CARE

Explosion Hazard

Use nonflammable cleaner.

Failure to do so can result in death. explosion. or fire.

Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.

However. clean both compartments about once a month to avoid buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.

IMPORTANT:

Because air circulates between both sections. any odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor transfer and drying out of food. wrap or cover foods tightly.

For stainless steel models. stainless steel is corrosion resistant and not corrosion-proof.

To help avoid corrosion of your stainless steel. keep your surfaces clean by using the following cleaning instructions.
