Ice maker operation & care

After you properly install the refrigerator and it has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely

Turning the ice maker on

Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off feature on the control panel. Pressing and holding the On/Off button toggles the ice maker On/Off.

Ice Maker/Dispenser Tips

  • Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor. Empty the ice container as explained in Cleaning the Ice Storage Bin.
  • Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice separated.
  • If your refrigerator is not connected to a water supply or the water supply is turned off, turn Off the ice maker.
  • If you need a large quantity of ice at one time, it is best to get cubes directly from the ice container.
  • The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating:
    • Motor running
    • Ice dropping into ice container
    • Water valve opening or closing
    • Ice loosening from tray
    • Running water
  • When dispensing ice, you will hear a snapping or clicking sound when the ice chute opens and closes.
  • Turn Off the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations. If you turn Off the ice maker for a long period of time, you should also turn off the water supply valve.

Cleaning the Ice Storage Bin

Clean the ice storage bin at regular intervals, particularly before you take a vacation or move

To clean the ice storage bin:

  1. Turn Off the ice maker.
  2. Remove the ice storage bin by lifting up and out.
  3. Empty and carefully clean the ice storage bin with mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
  4. Allow the ice storage bin to dry completely before replacing it in the freezer.
  5. Remove ice chips and clean the ice storage bin, shelf and the freezer door chute.
  6. Replace the ice storage bin. Turn On the ice maker to resume ice production

Remove and empty the ice storage bin if:

  • An extended power failure (1 hour or longer) causes ice cubes in the ice storage bin to melt and freeze together, jamming the dispenser mechanism.
