Ice maker operation
& care
After the refrigerator is installed properly and has
cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce
ice within 24 hours.The ice maker will fill the ice bin
from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force
the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill
completely.
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work
as soon as you install your refrigerator, If you cannot
connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon
to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the
ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise
when it attempts to operate without water.
Turning
The ice maker also has a built-in plastic signal bale
arm that automatically stops ice production when the
ice bin is full. This signal arm should not be used to
manually stop the ice maker.
the fresh food ice maker
on and off
Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off
icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "ice Off"
icon for three (3) seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or
"OFF", If there is no indicator, then the ice maker is ON.
Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime
the water supply system, Air in new plumbing lines can
result in two (2) or three (3) empty ice maker cycles.
Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice
cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
IMPORTANT
On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be
noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could
occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start
seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication
of tow water pressure or the water filter needs to
be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its
useful life and becomes clogged with particles, tess
water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle.
Remember, if it's been six (6) months or longer since
you last changed your water filter, replace the water
filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may
require the filter to be changed more frequently.

1 Turn off the ice maker.
IMPORTANT
You may want to change your ice cube size per your
preference or if you have low water pressure in your
home.The ice cube size function allows you to change
the cube size from the display panel. There are three
sizes: 1,2, and 3.The factoQ/default is 1 (smallest).
This size should work well in most cases. If your water
pressure is low or you simply prefer a larger size, then
you can change to size 2. Size 3 should ONLY be used
in case of very low water pressure. Using size 3 with high
water pressure (above 70 psi) could result in overfilling
the ice maker.The excess water wilt spill into the ice bin
causing the existing ice to clump together.
To change cube size
1 Quickly press the CUBE button twice.You will see
one dash in the refrigerator temperature display. The

ideas for storing
Avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer
at one time. This overloads the freezer, slows the
rate of freezing, and can raise the temperature of
frozen foods.
foods
Fresh food storage
,, Keep the fresh food compartment between 34 ° F
and 40 ° F with an optimum temperature of 37 ° R
•
o Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves,
which reduces air circulation and causes uneven
cooling.
ideas for saving energy
Fruits and vegetables
,, Store fruits and vegetables in crisper drawers,
where trapped moisture helps preserve food
quality for longer time periods.
o
o
Wash items and remove excess water.
Wrap any items that have strong odors or high
moisture content.
Meat
,, Wrap raw meat and poultry separately and
securely to prevent leaks and contamination of
other foods or surfaces.
Use the Cool Zone drawer or Perfect Temp TM
drawer and set to meat/poultry setting for shortterm storage. Any meat to be kept longer than
two (2) days should be frozen.
Frozen food storage
,, Keep the freezer compartment at 0 ° F or lower.
,, A freezer operates most efficiently when it is at
least % full.
Packaging
foods
for freezing
,, To minimize food dehydration and quality
deterioration, use aluminum foil, freezer wrap,
freezer bags, or airtight containers. Force as
much air out of the packages as possible and
seal them tightly. Trapped air can cause food to
dry out, change color, and develop an off-flavor
(freezer burn).
,, Wrap fresh meats and poultry with suitable
freezer wrap prior to freezing.
,, Do not refreeze meat that has completely
thawed.
Loading
Leave a space between packages, so cold air
can circulate freely, allowing food to freeze as
quickly as possible.
the freezer
,, Prior to grocery shopping, activate "fast freeze"
so that on your return you can ensure your newly
purchased food designated for the freezer wilt be
preserved as quickly as possible.
,, Activating "fast freeze" also will help your
freezer more efficiently maintain the selected
temperature after placing new purchases with
pre-existing frozen foods.
Installation
,, Locate the refrigerator in the coolest part of
the room, out of direct sunlight, and away from
heating ducts or registers.
,, Do not place the refrigerator next to heatproducing appliances such as a range, oven, or
dishwasher, tf this is not possible, a section of
cabinetry or an added layer of insulation between
the two (2) appliances will help the refrigerator
operate more efficiently.
-
Level the refrigerator so that the doors close
tightly.

= Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator or blocking
cold air "vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to
run longer and use more energy.
Cover foods and wipe containers dry before
placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down
on moisture build-up inside the unit.
,, Organize the refrigerator to reduce door
openings. Remove as many items as needed at
one time and close the door as soon as possible.
