NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a
1/4in. (6.35 mm) saddle-type shut-off valve, a union, and copper
tubing. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve
complies with your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercingtype or s_6 in. (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow
and clogs more easily.
Cold water supply
The ice maker water valve contains a flow washer which is used
as a water pressure regulator. The ice maker needs to be
connected to a cold water line with water pressure between 30
and 120 psi. If a problem occurs, call your utility company.
6.
Fasten shut-off valve to cold water pipe with pipe clamp. Be
sure outlet end is solidly in the 1/4in. drilled hole in the water
pipe and that washer is under the pipe clamp. Tighten
packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws carefully and
evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Do not overtighten
or you may crush the copper tubing, especially if soft (coiled)
copper tubing is used. Now you are ready to connect the

Open the freezer door and turn off the ice maker. For Style 1
lift up the wire shut-off arm as shown. For Style 2 move the
switch to the OFF (right) setting as shown.
Style 1
•
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
•
Discard the first three batches of ice produced.
•
Depending on your model, you may want to select the
maximum ice feature to increase the production of ice. To
do so, set the switch on the front of the ice maker to MAX.
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn't
make. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be
concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces, like the floor, walls, and cabinets, can make the sounds
seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the
kinds of sounds and what may be making them.
Style 2
•
If your product is equipped with an ice maker, you will hear a
buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the ice
maker for each cycle.
The defrost timer will click when the automatic defrost cycle
begins and ends. Also, the Thermostat Control (or
Refrigerator Control depending on the model) will click when
cycling on and off.
•
NOTE: If your model has a base grille filter system, make sure the
base grille filter is properly installed and the cap is in the
horizontal position. If your model has an interior water filter
system, move to step 2.
2.
Install the interior water filter cartridge. The interior water filter
mounting bracket is located in the upper corner of the fresh
food compartment of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system.
•
Carefully remove the interior water filter cartridge from its
packaging. Remove the red cap from the cartridge.
Apply the appropriate month sticker to the cartridge as a
reminder to replace the cartridge within six months. Then
apply the "Water Filter Replacement Reminder" sticker to
your calendar.
Line up the INSTALL mark on the water filter label with the
indicator line that is molded into the filter mounting bracket
cover. Push the cartridge into the filter mounting bracket.
Twist the cartridge _/4turn to the right to lock it into place. The
REMOVE mark should be lined-up with the indicator line
located on the front cover.
3.
Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding
2 to 3 gallons (8 to12 liters) or approximately 6 to 7 minutes of
water through the dispenser. This will clean the system and
help clear air from the lines. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out
of the dispenser.
4.
Inspect the filter system for water leaks. If you see water
leaks, see the "Troubleshooting" section.
Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant, the
water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator.
Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep
your food items at the desired temperature. The high
efficiency compressor may cause your new refrigerator to run
longer than your old one, and you may hear a pulsating or
high-pitched sound.
•
Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle
may cause a sizzling sound.
•
You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating the air
through the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
•
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to
the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
•
Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause a
popping noise.
•
You may hear air being forced over the condenser
condenser fan.
•
You may hear water running into the drain pan during the
defrost cycle.

USINGYOUR
REFRIGERATOR
The Freezer Control adjusts the freezer compartment
temperature.
Settings to the left of the mid-setting make the
temperature less cold. Settings to the right of the mid-setting
make the temperature colder.
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into
the refrigerator•
In order to ensure proper temperatures, you need to permit air to
flow between the two sections. Cold air enters the bottom of the
freezer section and moves up. It then enters the refrigerator
section through the top vent. Air then returns to the freezer as
shown•
IMPORTANT: If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and
Freezer Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended
setting will not cool the compartments
any faster.
/
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding
food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the
refrigerator. The settings indicated in the previous section should
be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls
are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and
when ice cream is firm.
If you need to adjust temperatures in the refrigerator or freezer,
use the settings listed in the chart below as a guide• Wait at least
24 hours between adjustments.
RECOMMENDED
ADJUSTMENT:
CONDITION/REASON:
Do not block any of these vents with food such as soda, cereal,
bread, etc. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be prevented and
the temperature controls will not function properly.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent
odor transfer from food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
For your convenience, your refrigerator controls are preset at
the factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure
that the controls are still preset. The Refrigerator Control and the
Freezer Control should both be at the "mid-settings" as shown in
the illustrations below.

Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
NOTE: The first few batches of ice may have an off-flavor
from new plumbing and parts. Throw the ice away. Also, take
large amounts of ice from the ice bin, not through the
dispenser.
The water dispenser
If you did not flush the water system when the refrigerator was
first installed, press the water dispenser bar with a glass or jar
until you draw and discard 2 to 3 gallons (8 to 12 liters) or
approximately 6 to 7 minutes of water. It will take three to four
minutes for the water to begin dispensing. The water you draw
and discard cleans the system and helps clear air for the lines.
Allow several hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water.
Cut Hazard
Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice or water.
Failure to do so can result in cuts.
IMPORTANT: Depending on your model, the small removable
tray at the bottom of the dispenser is designed to catch small
spills and allow for easy cleaning. There is no drain in the tray.
The tray can be removed from the dispenser and carried to the
sink to be emptied or cleaned.
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed
ice, a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a
lock option to avoid accidental dispensing.
The ice dispenser
Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer. When
the dispenser lever is pressed:
•
A trap door opens in a chute between the dispenser and the
ice bin.
•
Ice moves from the bin and falls through the chute.
•
When you release the dispenser lever, the trap door closes
and the ice dispensing stops. The dispensing system will not
operate when the freezer door is open.
Some models dispense both cubed and crushed ice. Before
dispensing ice, select which type of ice you prefer. The button
controls are designed for easy use and cleaning.

filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or earlier if
the flow of water to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases
noticeably.
Replacing
1.
the interior water filter cartridge
Twist the interior water filter cartridge 1/4turn to the left. The
INSTALL mark will be lined up with the indicator line located
on the filter mounting bracket cover.
2.
Gently pull down on the cartridge to remove it from the filter
mounting bracket assembly. To prevent water from spilling
inside the refrigerator, DO NOT TIP the cartridge. Dispose of
the cartridge.

Install the new interior water filter cartridge. You can run the
dispenser without a water filter cartridge, but your water will
not be filtered.
\
To increase ice production rate:
Normal Ice Production: In normal ice production mode, the
ice maker should produce approximately 7 to 9 batches of ice
in a 24-hour period. If ice is not being made fast enough, turn
the Freezer Control toward a higher (colder) number in half
number steps. (For example, if the control is at 3, move it to
between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours and, if necessary, gradually
turn the Freezer Control to the highest setting, waiting 24
hours between each increase.
NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system.
•
Carefully remove the interior water filter cartridge from its
packaging. Remove the red cap from the cartridge.
Apply the appropriate month sticker to the cartridge as a
reminder to replace the cartridge within six months. Then
apply the "Water Filter Replacement Reminder" sticker to
your calendar as a reminder to replace the cartridge in six
months.

necessary to turn the ice maker control to the OFF (right)
position. The ice maker will not produce ice without the
bucket installed in the door.
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to meet your
individual storage needs. Your model may have glass or wire
shelves.
Storing similar food items together in your refrigerator and
adjusting the shelves to fit different heights of items will make
finding the exact item you want easier. It will also reduce the
amount of time the refrigerator door is open, and save energy.
Slide-out Shelves (on some models}
•
To slide out shelf, carefully pull front of shelf toward you.

Frozen food storage
Door Rails
guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof), and the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside
a sealed package are normal. This simply means that moisture in
the food and air inside the package have condensed, creating ice
crystals.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2-3 Ib of food per cubic foot [907-1,350 g
per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the freezer for air
to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave enough room
for the door to close tightly.
