IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
Operating Instructions
■ This refrigerator must be properly installed
and located in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used.
■ Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang
on the shelves in the refrigerator. They could
damage the refrigerator and seriously injure
themselves.
■ Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment when hands are damp or wet. Skin
may stick to these extremely cold surfaces.
Installation Instructions
■ Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
Consumer Support
Troubleshooting Tips
■ In refrigerators with automatic icemakers,
avoid contact with the moving parts of the
ejector mechanism, or with the heating element
located on the bottom of the icemaker. Do not
place fingers or hands on the automatic
icemaking mechanism while the refrigerator
is plugged in.
2
■ Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas;
clearances between the doors and between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
■ Set the master power switch to the O (off) position
before cleaning or making repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be
performed by a qualified individual.
■ Do not refreeze frozen foods that have
thawed completely.
DANGER! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE REFRIGERATOR
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator
or Freezer:
Refrigerants
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants,
which under federal law must be removed prior
to product disposal. If you are getting rid of an
old refrigeration product, check with the
company handling the disposal about what
to do.
Operating Instructions
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are
still dangerous…even if they will sit for “just a few
days.” If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator,
please follow the instructions below to help prevent
accidents.
Safety Instructions

WARNING!
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. For
personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug, which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet
to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
If the outlet is a standard 2-prong outlet, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall
outlet.
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits, which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight
out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power cords that
have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not
use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage
along its length or at either end.
When moving the refrigerator, be careful not to roll
over or damage the power cord.
Installation Instructions
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate.
DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER PLUG OR EXTENSION CORD
(Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada)
Do not use an adapter plug to connect the refrigerator to a 2-prong outlet.
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance.

Important facts about your
ice and water dispenser
Installation Instructions
■ Do not add ice from trays or bags to the
storage bin. It may not crush or dispense
well.
■ Beverages and foods should not be
quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage bin may cause the icemaker
or auger to jam.
■ To keep dispensed ice from missing
the glass, put the glass close to, but not
touching, the dispenser opening.
■ Some crushed ice may be dispensed
even though you selected Cubed Ice.
This happens occasionally when a few
cubes accidentally get directed to the
crusher.
■ After crushed ice is dispensed, some
water may drip from the chute.
■ The first glass of water dispensed may
be warmer than the following ones.
This is normal.
■ Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of
narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice
can jam the chute or cause the door in
the chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking
the chute, poke it through with a wooden
spoon.
Automatic Icemaker
Troubleshooting Tips
A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12–24
hours to begin making ice.
Power
Switch
Icemaker
The icemaker will produce seven cubes per
cycle—approximately 15 cycles or more in
a 24-hour period, depending on freezer
compartment temperature, room
temperature, number of door openings
and other use conditions.
If the refrigerator is operated before the
water connection is made to the icemaker,
set the power switch to O (off).
Consumer Support
When the refrigerator has been connected
to the water supply, set the power switch to
I (on). The green light will come on.
Throw away the first full bucket of ice.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep
of the feeler arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler
arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice.
It is normal for several cubes to be joined
together.
10
Green
Power Light
Feeler Arm
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes
will become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.
After the icemaker has been turned on
again, there will be a delay of about 45
minutes before the icemaker resumes
operations.
NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average
water pressure, you may hear the icemaker
water valve cycle on several times when
making one batch of ice. Recommended
water pressure is 60 psi.

refrigerator parts in the dishwasher.
Avoid cleaning cold glass shelves with hot
water because the extreme temperature
difference may cause them to break. Handle
glass shelves carefully. Bumping tempered
glass can cause it to shatter.
Preparing for Vacation
For long vacations or absences, remove
food and unplug the refrigerator. Clean the
interior with a baking soda solution of one
tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to one
quart (1 liter) of water. Leave the doors
open.
If the temperature can drop below freezing,
have a qualified servicer drain the water
supply system to prevent serious property
damage due to flooding.

Installation Instructions
2 INSTALL WATER LINE
• A cold water supply is required for
automatic icemaker operation. The water
pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi.
• Route 1/4″ O.D. copper tubing between
cold water line and the water connection
location.
• Tubing should be long enough to extend
to the front of the refrigerator. Allow
enough tubing to accommodate bend
leading into the water line connection.
NOTE: Certain types of plastic may crack or
rupture with age and cause water damage to
your home.
Shut off the main water supply.
Turn on the nearest faucet long enough
to purge all the water from the line.
• Install a shutoff valve between the
icemaker water valve and cold water pipe
in a basement or cabinet. The shutoff
valve should be located where it will be
easily accessible.
NOTE: It is best to install the valve into a
vertical water pipe. If you install the valve into
a horizontal water pipe, make the connection
at the top or side to avoid drawing off any
sediment from the water pipe.
• Drill a 1/4″ hole in the water pipe.
• Fasten the shutoff valve to the pipe with
pipe clamp.
• Tighten the clamp screws until the
sealing washer begins to swell. Do not
OVERTIGHTEN.
• Place a compression nut and ferrule
(sleeve) for copper tubing onto the end
of the tubing and connect it to the shutoff
valve. Make sure the tubing is fully inserted
into the valve and ferrule is tightened.

Newer refrigerators sound different from older refrigerators.
Modern refrigerators have more features and use newer
technology.
Do you hear what I hear? These sounds are normal.
■ The new high efficiency compressor may run faster
and longer than your old refrigerator and you may
hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while
it is operating.
■ You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors
close. This is due to pressure equalizing within
the refrigerator.
■ You may hear the fans spinning at high speeds.
This happens when the refrigerator is first plugged
in, when the doors are opened frequently or when
a large amount of food is added to the refrigerator
or freezer compartments. The fans are helping to
maintain the correct temperatures.
■ If either door is open for over 3 minutes, you may
hear the fans come on in order to cool the light
