4. Replace in reverse order.
Connect the ice maker to the water
supply before turning it on.
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal
arm. Lower signal arm to make ice.
Raise signal arm to turn off the ice
maker.
Freezer must be cold enough for the
ice maker to work. This may take
eight hours or more before the
correct temperature is reached.
“First” ice may be discolored or offflavored because of new plumbing
connections. Throw away first few
batches of ice.
Change ice cube size with the, dial
or lever on the side of the ice maker.
Ice crescents are normally attached
at the corner. They break apart
easily.
Normal sounds include water
running when the ice maker is
working and the thud of ice as it
falls into the bin.
If ice is not being made fast enough
and more ice is needed, turn the
Refrigerator Control to a higher
number. Wait 24 hours, and if this
does not increase the ice supply,
turn the Freezer Control to A.
Raise the signal arm before you
remove the ice bin. When you
replace the bin, push it in ah the
way. Then lower the arm to the ON
position.
. Cubes left in the bin for long
periods of time may develop an offflavor, like stale water. Throw old
cubes away. Cubes may also
become smaller if stored for a long
time.
. Good water quality is important for
good ice quality. It is not
recommended that you connect the
ice maker to a softened water
supply. If a softened water supply
cannot be avoided, it is important to
maintain the water softener so it
operates properly. Water softener
chemicals, such as salt from a
malfunctioning softener, can
damage the ice maker mold and
lead to poor quality ice.
Changing the light bulb
Electrical Shock Hazard
Unplug the refrigerator or
disconnect the main electric power
supply to the refrigerator before
changing a bulb. Failure to do so
can result in electrical shock or
injW.
1. Disconnect refrigerator from power
supply.
2. Remove the bulb from the socket
located behind the Control Console
and throw the burned-out bulb
away.
3. Replace with a 40-watt appliance
bulb.
4. Reconnect power supply.
NOTE: Not all commercial appliance
bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace a bulb with one of the same size
and shape.
Page 5
Normal operating
sounds
You can expect to hear the following
sounds when your refrigerator is
operating:
. Slight hum or soft hiss as the
refrigerator’s fan motor moves air.
Clicking or snapping sounds occur
when the refrigerator starts and
stops running. The defrost timer
also clicks when the defrost cycle
starts and stops.
. Water sounds occur as water
gurgles through tubing for a few
minutes after refrigerator stops
running. You may also hear defrost
water running into the defrostwater pan.
I Buzzing sounds (from the ice maker
water valve), trickling water and
clatter (or thud) of ice may be heard
if you have an ice maker.
. Operating sounds from the highefficiency compressor and motor. It
may run longer than your older
refrigerator.
Energy saving tips
Check the door gaskets for a tight
seal. Level the refrigerator to be
sure of a good seal.
Clean dust and lint from the
condenser coils every other month.
Open the doors as seldom as
possible. Decide what you need
before you open the door. Remove
everything you need at one time.
Organize and label food so you will
not have to search for items you
want. Close door immediately after
you remove food items.
Store food in the refrigerator and
freezer so that air movement is not
blocked.
n
Set the refrigerator and freezer
temperatures so that the drinks
remain cold enough for your
family’s taste and ice cream
remains firm. Do Not set
temperatures colder than they need
to be.
Set the Exterior Moisture Control to
the OFF position unless moisture
forms on the outside of the
refrigerator.
Do Not install your refrigerator next
to your range, water heater,
furnace, radiator, other heat sources
or in direct sunlight.
Reversing the door swing
(RTl4DK and RTlQDM)
Change the direction the doors swing by
following the instruction sheet in the
literature package.
Food Storage Guide
Storing fresh food
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.
Vegetables
For leafy vegetables: remove store
wrapping and trim or tear off bruised
and discolored areas. Wash in cold water
and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic
container and store in crisper. For
vegetables with skins: store in crisper,
plastic bags or plastic container.
Cheese
Store in the original wrapping until you
are ready to use it. Once opened, rewrap
tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
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.
Fresh and cured meat storage chart*
APPROXIMATE
TIME (DAYS)
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.
Eggs
Store without washing in the original
carton on interior shelf or in egg nest (on
some models).
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For best storage,
place milk on interior shelf.
Butter or margarine
Keep opened butter in covered dish or
butter compartment. When storing an
extra supply, wrap in freezer packaging
and freeze.

If meat is to be stored longer than the
times given, follow the directions for
freezing.
NOTE: Fresh fish and shellfish should be
used the same day as purchased.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or
aluminum foil. Plastic containers with
tight lids can also be used.
Storing frozen food
The freezer section is designed for
storage of commercially frozen food and
for freezing food at home. For further
information about preparing food for
freezing or food storage times, 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 plastic containers 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, non-rigid
plastic containers, containers without
tight-fitting lids, waxed paper, waxcoated freezer wrap or thin, semipermeable wrap. The use of these
wrappings could cause food odor and
taste transfer and drying of frozen food.
Freezing
Do not expect your freezer to quickfreeze any large quantity of food. Put no
more unfrozen food into the freezer than
will freeze within 24 hours. (No more
than 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, type of packaging or wrap
used (air and moisture proof), and
storage temperature which should be
0°F (-176°C).
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
Both the refrigerator and freezer
sections defrost automatically. To help
prevent odors, wipe up spills
immediately. Clean both sections once a
month.
1. Turn Refrigerator Control to OFF
and unplug power cord.
2. Take out all removable parts and
clean according to the following
directions :

Caring For Your Refrigerator
If electricity goes off
1. Call the power company.
Ask how long power will be off.
2. Keep freezer closed if service is to
be interrupted 24 hours or less.
This will help food will stay frozen.
3. If service is to be interrupted
longer than 24 hours, do this:
Remove all frozen food and store in
a frozen food locker;
OR
Place 2 lbs. (0.9 kg) of dry ice in
freezer for every cubic foot of
freezer space. This will keep foods
frozen for 2 to 4 days.
Personal Injury Hazard
Wear gloves to protect your hands
from dry ice bums. Failure to do so
could result in dry ice bums.
OR
If dry ice or a food locker is not
available, use or can perishable
food at once.
NOTE: A full freezer stays colder longer
than a partly filled one. A freezer full of
meat stays colder longer than a freezer
full of baked goods.
Food containing ice crystals may be
safely refrozen, but the quality and flavor
of the food may be affected.
Use refrozen food quickly. If the
condition of the food is poor, or you feel
it is unsafe to eat, dispose of it
immediately.
Vacation and moving guide
Short vacations
(less than 4 weeks)
. Use up perishable foods.
. Freeze other food items.
. If you have an automatic ice maker,
lift signal arm to turn off the ice
maker, shut off ice maker water
supply, and empty ice bin.
Long vacations
(more than 4 weeks)
. If you have an automatic ice maker,
shut off ice maker water supply at
least a day before you leave. When
last load of ice drops, lift signal arm
to turn off ice maker and empty ice
bin.
. Remove all food.
n Turn Refrigerator
Control to OFF.
. Unplug refrigerator.
. Clean, rinse and dry the interior.
. Keep refrigerator and freezer doors
slightly open by taping wood or
rubber blocks at the top of each
door. This allows air to enter the
refrigerator and freezer sections
and prevents odors and mold from
building up inside while you’re
away.
Personal Injury Hazard
Do Not allow children to climb on,
play near or crawl inside the
refrigerator when the doors are
blocked open. They may become
injured or trapped.
. To restart refrigerator when you
return, see page 4 for resetting
controls.

check the chart to see what the cause
might be before you call for assistance.
OPERATING PROBLEM
Refrigerator will not run.
. Power cord is plugged into a live
circuit with proper voltage.
. Refrigerator Control is turned on.
. Fuse has blown or circuit breaker
has tripped. Also check if a timedelay fuse has been used.
Rattling, jingling noise or
unfamiliar sounds.
Ice maker will not make ice.
(Factory-installed on model
RT14DM - optional accessory for
model RTlIDK)
. Anything is on top of or behind the
refrigerator when the refrigerator is
operating.
. These are “normal” operating
sounds: humming from fans,
clicking from thermostat or defrost
cycle, or defrost water draining into
the defrost pan.
. Freezer compartment has had
enough time to get cold. With a
new refrigerator, it may require
cooling overnight to reach proper
temperature.
. Signal arm is in the down position
to start ice maker.
. Water valve is turned to open
position and water is reaching the
ice maker.
Water in the defrost pan.
. Weather is hot and muggy.
Light does not work.
. Fuse has blown or circuit breaker
has tripped.
. Power cord is plugged into a live
circuit with proper voltage.
. Bulb is burned out.
Motor runs too long.
WHAT TO DO
CHECK IF
. Condenser is free of lint and dust.
l
Weather or room is hot or muggy.
. Door has been opened frequently or
a large amount of food has been
added to the refrigerator or freezer
compartment.
-
. Firmly plug power cord into electrical
outlet. Check circuit voltage at fuse/
circuit breaker box.
. Set Refrigerator Control to a
numbered setting.
. Replace fuse with a time-delay fuse
of the correct capacity. Reset circuit
breaker.
. Remove objects from the top or from
behind the refrigerator.
n
Read the “Normal operating sounds”
on page 6.
m Allow freezer to get cold enough.
. Put signal arm in the down position.
. Turn water valve to open position.
. Hot and muggy weather can cause
water to collect in the dram pan.
Since water levels may reach half-full
in the pan, be sure to level the
refrigerator so the pan does not
overflow.
Replace fuse with a time-delay fuse
of the correct capacity. Reset circuit
breaker.
. Firmly plug power cord into electrical
outlet. Check circuit voltage at fuse/
circuit breaker box.
. Replace bulb with an appliance bulb.
Follow instructions on Page 5.
n
. Remove dust and lint from the
condenser coils with a vacuum

m If the temperature outside or inside
your home is warm, motor-nmning
noises are normal.
9 Decide which food items you need
before opening the refrigerator or
freezer section. Motor noise is also
normal when large amounts of food
are added to the refrigerator/freezer
compartments.
Remember - your new refrigerator
may be larger than your old
refrigerator. It may have more space
to cool, which requires a longerrunning motor.
