It is the customer’s responsibility to:
• Do not tamper with refrigerator controls.
• Contact a qualified electrical installer.
• Do not service or replace any part of
refrigerator unless specifically
recommended in Use & Care or Installation
Instructions. Do not attempt service if
instructions are not understood or if they
are beyond personal skill level.
• Read all instructions before using the
refrigerator.
• Observe all local codes and ordinances.
Install refrigerator according to installation
instructions. All connections for water,
electrical power and grounding must
comply with local codes and be made by
licensed personnel when required.
• Always disconnect refrigerator from
electrical supply before attempting to
change light bulbs, clean, or service the
refrigerator. Disconnect the power cord by
grasping the plug, not the cord.
• Do not modify plug on power cord. If plug
does not fit electrical outlet, have proper
outlet installed by a qualified technician.
Replace worn power cords and/or loose
plugs.
• Always read and follow manufacturer’s
storage and ideal environment instructions
for items being stored in refrigerator.
• Never allow children to operate, play with,
crawl inside or stand on any part of the
refrigerator.
• Assure that the electrical installation is
adequate and in conformance with the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition or Canadian Electrical
Code C22.1-1998 and C22.2 No. 0-M91
(or latest edition), and all local codes and
ordinances. (115 volt, 60-Hz, 15 amp,
fused, electrical supply is required. It is
required that a separate circuit serving only
this appliance be provided. This appliance
is equipped with a power supply cord
having a 3-prong grounding plug. To
minimize possible shock hazard, the cord
must be plugged into a mating 3-prong,
grounding type wall receptacle. If a 2prong receptacle is encountered, the
customer must contact a qualified
electrical installer to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong receptacle. Do
not use an extension cord or adapter
plug.)
• Never clean refrigerator parts with
flammable fluids. The fumes can create a
fire hazard or explosion.
• Clean up spills or water leakage associated
with water installation.
• Keep your refrigerator in good condition.
Bumping or dropping refrigerator can
damage refrigerator or cause refrigerator
to malfunction or leak. If damage occurs,
have refrigerator checked by qualified
service technician.
• Do not ground to a gas line or cold-water
pipe.
• Do not remove warning tag from power
cord.
• Refrigerator is designed to operate on a
separate 115 volt, 15 amp., 60 cycle line.

Proper Disposal (of old refrigerator)
WARNING
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or brain damage.
General Information
Unpacking Unit
• Do not install where the temperature falls
below 55°F (13°C) or rises above 110°F
(43°C). Malfunctions can occur at these
temperatures.
• Refrigerator is designed for indoor
household application only.
Your refrigerator was packed carefully for
shipment. Remove and discard all packaging
and tape. Do not remove the model/serial
number label.
WARNING
Measuring the Opening
Excessive Weight Hazard
IMPORTANT:
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 these instructions to help prevent accidents.
When installing your refrigerator, measure
carefully. Allow 1/2” (1.3 cm) space at top
and 1/2” (1.3 cm) behind the machine
compartment cover (located in the rear) for
proper air circulation. Sub-flooring or floor
coverings (i.e. carpet, tile, wood floors,
rugs) may make your opening smaller than
anticipated. Some clearance may be gained by
using the leveling procedure under “Leveling”.
When installing your refrigerator next to a
fixed wall, leave 2 7/8” (7.3 cm) minimum on
the hinge side to allow for the door to swing
open.
Use two or more people to move and
install refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other
injury.
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
When moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the
refrigerator for cleaning or service, be sure to
protect the floor. Always pull the refrigerator
straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or
“walk” the refrigerator when trying to move it,
as floor damage could occur.
Location
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors,
such as gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, or fire.
• Do not install refrigerator near oven, radiator
or other heat sources. If not possible, shield
refrigerator material.

General Information
General Information
Electrical Requirements
Moving Unit
• NEVER transport the refrigerator on its side. If
an upright position is not possible, lay the
refrigerator on its back. Allow refrigerator to
sit upright for approximately 30 minutes
before plugging it in to assure oil returns to
the compressor. Plugging the refrigerator in
immediately may cause damage to internal
parts.
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
• Use an appliance dolly when moving
refrigerator. ALWAYS truck refrigerator from
its side or back - NEVER from its front.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
• Protect outside finish of refrigerator during
transport by wrapping cabinet in blankets
or inserting padding between the refrigerator
and dolly.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator to its final
location, it is important to make sure you
have the proper electrical connection.
• Secure refrigerator to dolly firmly with straps
or bungee cords. Thread straps through
handles when possible. Do not overtighten.
Overtightening restraints may dent or
damage outside finish.
Water Supply Requirements
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414
kPa):
A cold water supply with water pressure of
between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa) is
required to operate the water dispenser and
ice maker. If you have questions about your
water pressure, call a licensed, qualified
plumber.
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in
the reverse osmosis system is blocked.
Replace the filter if necessary.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water
supply coming out of a reverse osmosis
system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 35 and
120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse
osmosis system to refill afer heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when
used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis
system. Remove the water filter.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the
water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60
psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If you have questions about your water
pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only 15- or 20-amp
fused, grounded electrical supply is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only your refrigerator be provided.
Use an outlet that cannot be turned of by a
switch. Do not use an extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of
installation, cleaning, or removing a light
bulb, turn the refrigerator OFF. Press the
freezer Down Arrow control until a dash (-)
appears in both the Freezer and Refrigerator
displays. Disconnect the refrigerator from the
electrical source. When you are finished,
reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical
source and reset the temperature controls to
the desired setting.
