1/411Drill bit

Hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded)

NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a 1/411 (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 3/6" (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.

IMPORTANT:

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.

Water Pressure

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

Reverse Osmosis Water Supply IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa).

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 water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa): 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 your refrigerator has a water filter. it may further reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.

Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an extension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death. fire. or electrical shock.

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Flush the water system.

See "Prepare the Water System."

NOTE: It may take up to 24 hours for your ice maker to begin producing ice.

Please read before using the water system.

Immediately after installation. follow the steps below to make sure that the water system is properly cleaned.

Open the freezer door and turn off the ice maker by lifting up the wire shutoff arm as shown.

NOTE: If your model has a base grille filter system. make sure the base grille filter is properly installed and the cap is in the horizontal position.

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.

Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds. then release it for 5 seconds.

Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow. continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on. 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes.

If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker. you will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the ice maker for each cycle.

Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep your food items at the desired temperatures and to minimize energy usage. The high efficiency compressor and fans may cause your refrigerator to run longer than your old one. You may also hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound from the compressor or fans adjusting to optimize performance.

You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating air through the refrigerator and freezer compartments.

The fan speed may increase as you open the doors or add warm food.

Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant. the water line. or items stored on top of the refrigerator.

Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle may cause a sizzling sound.

As each cycle ends. you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.

Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause a popping noise.

You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.

You may hear water running into the drain pan during the defrost cycle.

REFRIGERATOR USE

I01" In order to ensure proper temperatures. you need to permit air to flow between the two sections.

Cold air enters the bottom of the freezer section and moves up. It then enters the refrigerator section through the top vent. Air then returns to the freezer as shown.

Do not block any airflow vents.

If the vents are blocked. airflow will be obstructed and temperature and moisture problems may occur.

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.

Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator.

If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely. your food may spoil.

NOTE: Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer Controls to a higher (colder) setting will not cool the compartments any faster.

The preset settings 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 before adjusting the controls.

For your convenience. your controls are preset at the factory.

When installing your refrigerator. make sure that the controls are still at the set points as shown.

Depending on your model. you may have one or more of the following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed ice. a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser. or a lock option to avoid unintentional dispensing.

The Water Dispenser

If you did not flush the water system when the refrigerator was first installed. do so now. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds. then release it for 5 seconds.

Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow. continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on. 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system.

Additional flushing may be required in some households.

NOTE: As air is cleared from the system. water may spurt out of the dispenser.

Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill water.

IMPORTANT: Depending on your model. the small removable tray at the bottom of the dispenser is designed to catch small spills and allow for easy cleaning. There is no drain in the tray.

The tray can be removed from the dispenser and carried to the sink to be emptied or cleaned.

To Dispense Water:

Press a sturdy glass against the water dispenser lever.

Remove the glass to stop dispensing.

NOTE: Water may have an off-flavor if you do not use the dispenser periodically.

Dispense enough water every week to maintain a fresh supply.

Thelce Dispenser

Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer. When the dispenser lever is pressed:

A trap door opens in a chute between the dispenser and the ice bin. Ice moves from the bin and falls through the chute.

When you release the dispenser lever. the trap door closes and the ice dispensing stops. The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door is open.

Some models dispense both cubed and crushed ice. Before dispensing ice. select which type of ice you prefer. The button controls are designed for easy use and cleaning.

CRUSH CUBE

For crushed ice. cubes are crushed before they are dispensed.

This may cause a slight delay when dispensing crushed ice.

Noise from the ice crusher is normal. and pieces of ice may vary in size. When changing from crushed to cubed. a few ounces of crushed ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.

To Dispense Ice:

If the ice storage bin is located on the door. remove the temporary shield from underneath the ice storage bin. See "Ice Maker and Storage Bin."

Press button for the desired type of ice.

Cut Hazard

Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice.

Failure to do so can result in cuts.

Press a sturdy glass against the ice dispenser lever. Hold the glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall outside of the glass.

IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to the lever in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will not make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.

Remove the glass to stop dispensing.

NOTE: The first few batches of ice may have an off-flavor from new plumbing and parts. Throw the ice away. Also. take large amounts of ice from the ice bin. not through the dispenser.

The Dispenser Light

The dispenser area has a light. It can be turned on manually by pressing the ON button (touchpad or rocker switch).

On some models: Whenever you use the dispenser. the lever will automatically turn the light on.

LIGHT

OFF ON

NOTE: See "Changing the Light Bulbs" for information on changing the dispenser light bulb.

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)

The dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to avoid unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.

NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the refrigerator. to the ice maker. or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the dispenser levers.

To turn off the dispenser. press the LOCK button.

The indicator will appear above the LOCK button and the ice and water dispensers will not work. To unlock the dispenser. press the UNLOCK button until the indicator appears. Then continue to dispense ice or water as usual.

The water filter status light. located at the top of the refrigerator compartment. will help you know when to change your water filter cartridge.

When the indicator light changes from green to yellow. this tells you that it is almost time to change the water filter cartridge (90% of the filter life has been used). It is recommended that you replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter indicator light changes to red OR water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage. To change the water filter cartridge. see "Changing the Water Filter Cartridge" later in this section.

After changing the water filter cartridge. reset the water filter indicator light by pressing the light switch 5 times within 10 seconds.

The indicator light will change from red to green when the system is reset.

A. Status light B. Light switch

Non-Indicator Water Filter (on some models)

If your refrigerator does not have the water filter status light. you should change the water filter cartridge at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage. If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed. replace the water filter cartridge more often.

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.

Changing the Water Filter Cartridge

The base grille water filter is located below the freezer compartment door. Depending on your model. you may have a filter that is installed behind the base grille (Style 1) or a filter that is installed through the base grille (Style 2).

Style 1: Behind the base grille

Remove the base grille. See "Refrigerator Doors." Rotate the cartridge counterclockwise to a vertical position and pull the filter cartridge out.

Flushing the Water System After Replacing Filter

After connecting the refrigerator to a water source. flush the water system.

Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds. then release it for 5 seconds.

Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow. continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on. 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system.

Additional flushing may be required in some households.

NOTE: As air is cleared from the system. water may spurt out of the dispenser.

Using the Dispenser Without the Water Filter

You can run the dispenser without a water filter cartridge.

Your water will not be filtered.

Remove the base grille water filter cartridge.

For Style 1. replace the base grille after removing the filter.

For Style 2. slide the cartridge cap off the end of the filter cartridge.

With the cartridge cap in the horizontal position. insert the cap into the base grille until it stops.

IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator.

Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Turning the Ice Maker On/Off

NOTE: Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.

The On/Off switch for the ice maker is a wire shutoff arm located on the side of the ice maker.

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

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.

Increasing Ice Production Rate

The ice maker should produce approximately 7 to 9 batches of ice in a 24-hour period.

If ice is not being made fast enough. turn the Freezer Control toward a higher (colder) number in half number steps. (For example. if the control is at 3. move it to between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours between each increase.

Remember

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

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 store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice storage bin.

The convertible vegetable/meat drawer can be adjusted to properly chill meats or vegetables.

The air inside the pan is cooled to avoid "spot" freezing and can be set to keep meats at the National Livestock and Meat Board recommended storage temperatures of 28° to 32°F (-2 ° to O°C).

IMPORTANT: To extend freshness. wrap meats in airtight. moisture-proof materials before storing. Always store meat as recommended.

Adjusting the Control

The convertible control comes preset at the lowest meat setting.

To change a control setting: Move the control to the right (colder) or to the left (less cold) as desired.

To store vegetables: Set the control to VEG (all the way to the left) to store vegetables at their optimal storage temperatures (which need to be warmer than those for meat).

IMPORTANT: If food starts to freeze. move the control to the left (less cold). Remember to wait 24 hours between adiustments.

Doing so gives the temperature of the food time to change.

Meat Storage Guide

Store most meat in original wrapping as long as it is airtight and moisture-proof.

Rewrap if necessary. See the following chart for storage times. When storing meat longer than the times given. freeze the meat.

Fresh fish or shellfish . use same day as purchased
