TOOLS NEEDED:

Flat-blade screwdriver %" Drill bit

7/16"and 1/2"Open-end or two Hand drill or electric drill adjustable wrenches (properly grounded)

1/4"nut driver

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 3/16" (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.

Remove the water filter. See "Water Filtration System."

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

IMPORTANT:

Your product will not cool when the REFRIGERATOR Control is set to OFR

The Refrigerator Control adjusts the refrigerator compartment temperature.

The Freezer Control adjusts the freezer compartment temperature.

Settings to the left of the mid setting make the temperature less cold. Settings to the right of the mid-setting make the temperature colder.

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) than recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.

Adjusting Controls

Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. The settings indicated in the previous section should be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.

Rotary Controls: Turn the control right (clockwise) to make the compartment colder. Turn the control left (counterclockwise) to make it less cold. To turn the cooling system off. turn the Refrigerator Control counterclockwise until it reaches the OFF position.

Slide Controls: Slide the control one setting to the right to make the compartment colder. Slide the control one setting to the left to make it less cold.

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

CONDITION/REASON: ADJUSTMENT:

REFRIGERATOR too warm REFRIGERATOR Control one setting higher

FREEZER too warm/ FREEZER Control too little ice one setting higher

REFRIGERATOR too cold REFRIGERATOR Control one setting lower

FREEZER too cold FREEZER Control one setting lower

The control can be adjusted to properly chill meats or vegetables.

The air inside the pan is cooled to prevent "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 0°C).

The convertible vegetable/meat drawer control comes preset at the lowest meat setting.

To store meat:

Set the control to one of the three MEAT settings to store meat at its optimal storage temperature.

To store vegetables:

Set the control to VEG to store vegetables at their optimal storage temperatures.

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

You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed crisper. Adjust the control to any setting between LOW and HIGH.

LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with skins.

HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh. leafy vegetables.

Cool air from the freezer is directed to the refrigerator door bin directly beneath the vents.

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.

NOTES:

The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door is open.

After connecting the refrigerator to a water source. flush the water system by dispensing water into a sturdy container until you draw and discard 1.5 gal. (5.4 L) of water. or for approximately 3 minutes after the water begins dispensing.

The flushing process cleans the water system and clears air from the lines. As the air is cleared from the lines. water may spurt out of the dispenser.

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

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

The Water Dispenser

IMPORTANT: Dispense enough water every week to maintain a fresh supply.

To Dispense Water:

Press a sturdy glass against the water dispenser lever.

Remove the glass to stop dispensing.

The Ice Dispenser

The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door is open. Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer when the dispenser lever is pressed.

NOTE: Some models dispense both cubed and crushed ice.

Before dispensing ice. select which type of ice you prefer.

For crushed ice. cubes are crushed before being 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 the button to select 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.

The Dispenser Light

Style 1: The dispenser light can be turned on by pressing the ON button.

Style 2: When you use the dispenser. the lever will automatically turn the light on. If you want the light to be on continuously. you may choose either ON or NIGHT LIGHT.

Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to unlock the dispenser.

Turning the Ice Maker On/Off

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

To manually turn off the ice maker. 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.

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 use anything sharp to break up the ice in the storage 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 storage bin.

Removing and Replacing Ice Storage Bin

Pull the covering panel up from the bottom and then slide it back toward the rear.

Lift the wire shutoff arm so it clicks into the OFF (up) position.

Ice can still be dispensed. but no more can be made.

Lift up the front of the storage bin and pull it out.

Replace the bin by pushing it in all the way or the dispenser will not work. Push the wire shutoff arm down to the ON position to restart ice production.

Make sure the door is closed tightly.
