automatic
ice maker
If you have the automatic ice maker accessory, or
if you plan to add one later (Part No. 3ECKMF-87),
there are a few things you will want to know:
l The ON/OFF
lever is a wire signal arm.
Down.. .for making ice automatically.
Up...to shut off the ice maker.
NOTE: Do not turn ice maker on until it is
connected to the water supply. Instructions
for ice maker water supply hook-up
are
attached to the back of the refriqerator
cabinet.
l The dial or lever on the side of the ice maker
changes the size of the cubes.
l Shake the bin occasionally
to keep cubes separated, and to obtain increased storage capacity.
l It is normal for ice crescents
to be attached by a
corner. They will break apart easily.
l You will hear water running when ice maker is
working. You’ll hear ice fall into the bin. Don’t let
these sounds bother you.
l The ice maker will not operate
until the freezer
is cold enough to make ice. This can take
overnight.
l Because
of new plumbing connections, the first
ice may be discolored or off-flavored. Discard the
first few batches of ice.
9
Using Your Refrigerator
Continued
If ice is not being made fast enough and more ice
is needed, turn the Refrigerator Control toward a
higher number. Wait a day and, if necessary, turn
the Freezer Control toward A.
l If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to
shut off the ice maker. When you return the bin,
push it all the way in and lower the arm to the ON
positron.
. If cubes are stored too long, they may develop an
OH-flavor...like stale water. Throw them away. Ice
maker will make new ice. Cubes in the ice bin
can also become smaller by evaporation.
l Good water quality
is important for good ice
qualily. It is not recommended that the ice maker
be connected to a soHened water supply. Water
softener chemicals such as salt from a malfuncIroning softener can damage the ice maker mold
and lead to poor quality ice. If a soHened water
supply cannot be avoided, then it is important
that the water sottener be well maintatned and
operating properly.
l
Sounds you may hear
Your new refngerator may make sounds that your
old one didn’t. Because Ihe sounds are new to
you, you mrght be concerned about them. Don’t
be. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces like the floor, walls and cabinels can
make the sounds seem louder.
The following describes the krnds of sounds
that might be new to you, and what may be
making them.
Slight hum, soft hiss:
You may hear the refrigerator’s
movrng air.
Clicking
or snapping
fan motor and
sounds:
The thermostat makes a definite click when the
refrigerator stops running. It also makes a sound
when the refngerator starts. The defrost timer
will click when the defrost cycle starts.
Water sounds:
When the refrigerator stops running. you may hear
gurgling In the tubing for a few mrnutes after it
stops. You may also hear defrost water running
into Ihe defrost water pan.
Running
sounds:
Your refrigerator has a high-efficiency compressor
and motor. It wrll run longer than older desrgns. It
may even seem to run most of Ihe time.
10
Ice maker sounds:
trickling
water
l thud
(clatter of ice)
If your refrigerator has an ice maker, you may hear
buzzing (from the water valve), trickling water and
the clatter of ice dumped into the bin.
l
Energy
saving
tips
You can help your refrigerator use less electricity.
l Check door gaskets
for a lighl seal. Level the
cabinet to be sure of a good seal.
l Clean the condenser
coils regularly.
l Open the door as few times as possible.
Think
about what you need before you open the door.
Get everything out at one time. Keep food organized so you won’t have to search for what you
want. Close door as soon as food IS removed.
l Go ahead and fill up the refrigerator,
but don’t
overcrowd it so air movemenl is blocked.
l It is a waste of electncily
to set the refrigerator
and freezer to temperatures colder than they
need to be. If ice cream IS firm in the freezer and
drinks are as cold as your family likes them,
that’s cold enough.
l Keep the Exterior
Moisture Control on the OFF
setting unless moisture forms on refrigerator
exterior.
l Make sure your refrigerator
is not next to a heat
source such as a range, water heater, furnace,
radiator or in direct sunlight.
CleaningYourRefrigerator
To clean your refrigerator, turn the Refrigerator
Control to OFF, unplug it, take out all removable
parts and clean the refrigerator according to the
following directions.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost
automatically. But both should be cleaned aboul
once a month to help prevenl odors from building
up. Spills should be wiped up right away.

FoodStorageGuide
There is a correct way to package and store
refrigerated or frozen food. To keep food fresher,
longer, take the tme to study these recommended
steps.
Cheese
Store in the origlnal wrapping until you are ready to
use it. Once opened, rewrap tightly in plastic wrap
or aluminum foil.
Storing fresh food
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Plastic containers with tight lids can also be used.
Food placed in the refrigerator should be wrapped
or stored in air and moisture proof material. This
prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout
the refrigerator. For dated products, check code
date to ensure freshness.
Leafy vegetables
Remove store wrapping and trim or tear off
bruised and dlscolored areas. Wash in cold water
and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic container
and store in crisper.
Vegetables
with skins (carrots, peppers)
Store in crisper, plastic bags or plastic container.
Fruit
Wash. let dry and store in refrigerator in plastic
bags or crisper. Do not wash or hull berries until
they are ready to use. Sort and keep berries in
their store container in a crisper, or store in a
loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.
Meat
Most meat can be stored in original wrapping as
long as it is air and moisture proof. Rewrap if necessary. See the following chart for storage times.

Eggs
Store without washing in the original carton on
interior shelf.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place milk on
interior shelf.
Butter or margarine
Keep opened butter In covered dish or closed
comparlment. When storing an extra supply, wrap
in freezer packaging and freeze
12
Storing frozen food
The freezer section is designed for storage of
commercially frozen food and for freezing food at
home. For further information about prepanng
food for freezing, contact your local Cooperative
Extension Service or check a freezer guide or
cookbook.
Packaging
The secret of successful freezing is in the packaging. The way you close and seal the package must
not allow air or moisture in or out. Packaging done
in any other way could cause food odor and taste
transfer throughout the refrigerator and drying of
frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene (plastic) contalners with tight
fitting lids, straight-sided canning/freezing
jars,
heavy-duty aluminum foil, plastic-coated paper
and nonpermeable plastic wraps (made from a
Saran film) are recommended. Follow package or
container instructions for proper freezing methods.
Do not use:
Bread wrappers
l Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l Containers
without tight lids
l Waxed paper
Q Waxed-coated freezer wrap
l Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
The use of these wrappings could cause food
odor and taste transfer and drying of frozen food.
l
Freezing
Do not expect your freezer to quick-freeze any
large quantity of food. Put no more unfrozen food
into the freezer than will freeze within 24 hours.
(No more than 0.9 to 1.2 kg [2 to 3 pounds] of food
per cubic foot of freezer space.) Leave enough
space for air to circulate around packages. Be
careful to leave enough room at the front so the
door can close tightly.
Storage times will vary according to the quality
of the food, the type of packaging or wrap used (air
and moisture proof), and the storage temperature
which should be - 17.8”C (OOF). For further information about food storage times, contact your
local Cooperative Extension Service or check a
freezer guide or cookbook.
CaringForYourRefrigerator
Vacationand moving care
Power interruptions
Short vacations
No need to shut off the refrigerator if you will be
away for less than four weeks. Use up perishables; freeze other items. If your refrigerator is
equipped with an automatic ice maker:
If electricity goes off, call the power company.
Ask how long power will be off.
1. If service is to be interrupted 24.hours or IeSS.
keep both doors closed. This will help
frozen food stay frozen.
2. If service is to be interrupted longer than
24 hours:
(a) Remove all frozen food and store in a
frozen food locker.
OR
(b) Place 0.9 kg (2 Ibs.) of dry ice in freezer for
every cu. ft. of freezer space. This will keep
food frozen for 2 to 4 days. Wear gloves to
protect your hands from dry ice burns.
(c) If neither food locker storage nor dry
ice is available, use or can perishable
food at once.
3. A full freezer will stay cold longer than a partly
filled one. A freezer full of meat will stay cold
longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If food
contains ice crystals, It may be safely refrozen,
although the quality and flavor may be affected.
If the condition of the food is poor or if you feel it
is unsafe, drspose of it.
1. Turn off your ice maker by raising signal arm.
2. Shut off the water supply to the ice maker.
3. Empty the Ice bin.
Long vacations
Remove all the food if you are going for a month or
more. If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic ice maker, turn off the water supply to the ice
maker at least a day ahead. When the last ioad of
ice drops, turn off the ice maker.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it...rinse well
and dry. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the top of
both doors...keeprng them open far enough
for air to get in. This will keep odor and mold from
building up.
Personal Injury Hazard
Do not allow children to climb on, play near
or climb inside the refrigerator when the
doors are blocked open. They may become
injured or trapped.
To restart refrigerator, see “Using Your
Refrigerator” on page 5.
Moving
If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic
ice maker, shut off the ice maker water supply a
day ahead of time. Drsconnect the water line. After
the last supply of ice drops, lift the signal arm to
turn off the ice maker.
Remove all food. Pack frozen food in dry ice.
Unplug the refrigerator and clean it thoroughly.
Take out all removable parts. Wrap all parts well
and tape them together so they don’t shift and
rattle.
Screw in the leveling rollers. Tape the doors shut
and tape the electric cord to the cabinet.
When you get to your new home, put everything
back and refer to page 4. Don’t forget to reconnect
the water supply line if you have an ice maker.
If YouNeedServiceOrAssistance
We suggest you follow
these steps:
1. Before calling for assistance...
Performance problems often result from little
lhings you can find and fix yourself without tools
of any kind.
If your refrigerator
Is the
circuit
Have
circuit
Is the
l
l
l
will not operate:
power supply cord plugged into a live
with proper voltage? (See page 4.)
you checked your home’s main fuses or
breaker box?
Refrigerator Control ON?
If there is a rattling or jingling
noise or
unfamiliar
sounds:
l Is something
on top of or behind the refrigerator
making noise when the refrigerator is running?
. New features on your new refrigerator make new
sounds. You may be hearing air flowing from the
fans, timer clicks for the defrosting cycle, or
defrost water draining in the defrost pan.
If your ice maker will not operate:
Has the freezer had enough time to get cold?
With a new refrigerator, this mighl take overnight.
l Is the signal arm ON...in
the down position?
l Is the water valve turned on? Is water gettrng to
the ice maker?
l
If there is water in the defrost pan:
This is normal in hot, muggy weather, The pan
can even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator is
level so the pan does not overflow.
l
If the light does not work:
. Have you checked your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live
circuit with proper voltage? (See page 4.)
If a bulb is burned out:
See instructions for changing light bulbs on
page 8. Use appliance bulbs only.
l
If the motor seems to run too much:
Is the condenser free of dust and lint?
l On hot days, or if the room is warm, the motor
naturally runs longer.
l II the door has been opened
a lot. or if a large
amount of food has been put in, the motor WIII
run longer to cool down the interior.
l
Remember:
Motor running time depends on different things:
number of door openrngs. amount of food stored.
temperature of the room, setting of the controls.
Your new refrigerator may be larger than your
old one so it has more space to be cooled. It also
has a regular freezer instead of a frozen food compartment. All this means better refrigeration and
may require more running time than your old one.
