Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. The light will change from green to yellow. This
tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is
recommended that you replace the water filter when the status
light changes to red OR water flow to your water dispenser or ice
maker decreases noticeably.
After changing the water filter, reset the water filter status light.
The status light will change from red to green when the system is
Non-indicator Water Filter (on some models)
If your refrigerator does not have the status light, you should
change the water filter every 6 months depending upon your
usage. If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker
decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed, replace the
water filter more often.
Using the Dispenser Without the Water Filter
You can run the dispenser without a water filter. Your water will not
be filtered.
1. Remove the water filter.
2. Slide the cap off the end of the filter and replace the cap in the
base grille.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
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 sections about once a month to prevent
odors from building up. 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 prevent
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
