Adjusting Controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment, use the settings listed in the chart below as
a guide.
For (Style 1) controls press the up or down arrow touch pads, or
for (Style 2) controls turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control
more than one setting at a time. Wait 24 hours between
adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.
Crisper Humidity Control
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Depending on your model, adjust the control to any
setting between FRUIT and VEGETABLES or LOW and HIGH.
FRUIT / LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with
skins.
VEGETABLES / HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy
vegetables.
Ice Maker
(on some models)
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
The ice maker should produce a complete batch of ice
approximately every 3 hours.
To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See “Using the Controls.” Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
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.
Water Dispenser
(on some models)
IMPORTANT:
After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system. Press the button on the dispenser 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 button (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. As air is cleared
from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.
NOTE: After 5 minutes of continuous dispensing, the
dispenser will stop dispensing water to avoid flooding. To
continue dispensing, press the dispenser button again.
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water. Dispense enough water every week to maintain a fresh
supply.
Dispensing Water
1. Hold a container under the dispenser while pressing the
button.
2. Release the button to stop dispensing.
