WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to
ensure that your appliance’s safety
mechanisms are operating correctly.
• The unit must be plugged into its own
dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC-only
non-GFCI electric outlet. The power
cord of the appliance is equipped
with a three-prong grounding
plug for your protection against

if the voltage varies by 10% or
more. Operating the appliance with
insufficient power can damage the
compressor. Such damage is not
covered under your warranty.
• Do not plug the unit into an outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull
cord to prevent the appliance from
being turned off accidentally.
IMPORTANT
To disconnect power to the unit, unplug
the unit or switch the breaker that supplies

Before starting the appliance, follow
these important first steps.
Location
• Choose a place that is near a
grounded, non-GFCI, electrical outlet.
Do Not use an extension cord or an
adapter plug.
• If possible, place the unit out of direct
sunlight and away from the range,
dishwasher, or other heat sources.
• The appliance must be installed on a
floor that is level and strong enough
to support a fully loaded unit.
• Consider water supply availability for
models equipped with an automatic
ice maker.
• Allow the following clearances
for ease of installation, proper
air circulation, and plumbing and
electrical connections:
Sides ⅜” (9.5 mm)
Top & Back 1” (25.4 mm)
• Allow for trim kit if it to be installed
with the unit.
NOTE
If your appliance is placed with the door
hinge against a wall, you may have to
allow additional space so the door can
be opened wider.

Water Supply
WARNING
To avoid electric shock, which can cause death or severe personal injury, disconnect
the appliance from electrical power before connecting a water supply line to the unit.
CAUTION
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing is recommended for the water
supply line. Water supply tubing made of ¼ inch plastic is not recommended
to be used. Plastic tubing greatly increases the potential for water leaks, and
the manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is
used for the supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where temperatures fall below
freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage the ice maker. If the
ice maker is connected to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained
and working properly.
IMPORTANT
Ensure that your water supply line connections comply with all local plumbing codes.
Before Installing The Water Supply Line, You Will Need:
• Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade screwdriver, and Phillips screwdriver
• Access to a household cold water line with water pressure between 30 and 100 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼” (6.4 mm) OD, copper or stainless steel tubing.
To determine the length of tubing needed, measure the distance from the ice
maker inlet valve at the back of the freezer to your cold water pipe. Then add
approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters), so the freezer can be moved out for cleaning (as
shown).
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your household water system.
DO NOT use a self-piercing type shutoff valve.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting a copper water supply line to
the ice maker inlet valve.

Ice Service 15
If your freezer has an automatic icemaker,
it will provide a sufficient supply of ice
for normal use. During the initial startup
of your freezer, however, no ice will be
produced during the first 24 hours of
operation. Automatic ice makers are also
optional accessories that may be installed
in some models at any time. Call your local
dealer for information.
Turning Your Ice Maker On
After the plumbing connections have been
completed, the water supply valve must
be opened. Place the ice container under
the ice maker, pushing it as far back as
possible. Lower the wire signal arm to its
“down” or ON position. New plumbing
connections may cause the first production
of ice cubes to be discolored or have an
odd flavor. These first cubes should be
discarded until the cubes produced are free
of discoloration and taste.

Signal Arm
Leveling Bracket
Ice
Container
Turning Your Ice Maker Off
To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal
arm until it clicks and locks in the “up” or
OFF position. The ice maker also turns
off automatically when the ice container is
full. If your model has an adjustable freezer
shelf, place the shelf in the lower position,
so that the wire signal arm will hit the ice
when the container is full.
Ice Maker Tips
• If the ice maker will be turned off for
a long period of time, turn the water
supply valve to the closed position.
• Ice cubes stored too long may
develop an odd flavor. Empty the
ice container and ensure that the
wire signal arm is in its “down” or
ON position. The ice maker will then
produce more ice.
• Occasionally shake the ice container
to keep ice separated.
• Keep the wire signal arm in its “up”
or OFF position until the freezer is
connected to the water supply or
whenever the water supply is turned off.
• The following sounds are normal
when the ice maker is operating:
• Motor running
• Ice loosening from tray
• Ice dropping into ice container
• Running water
• Water valve opening or closing
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is shipped with the wire
signal arm in the ON position. To ensure
proper function of your ice maker, hook
up water supply immediately or turn ice
maker OFF by lifting the wire signal arm
until it clicks and locks in the UP position.
Check the leveling bracket on the ice
maker to ensure the ice maker is level.
If the gap between the freezer wall and
the ice maker is the same at top and
bottom, then ice maker is level. If the ice
maker is not level, loosen the screw and
slide the bracket to the correct position
to make it level. Retighten the screw.
You will need a ¼” socket wrench for
this task.
CAUTION
• DO NOT place the ice container
in dishwasher.
• Wash the ice container in warm
water with mild detergent. Rinse
well and dry.
• Stop the ice maker when cleaning
the freezer and during vacations.

• Pull shelf out.
• Replace the shelf by inserting the
hooks at rear of the shelf into the
wall bracket. Lower the shelf into the
desired slots and lock into position.

Storage Components & Energy-Saving Tips 17
Soft Freeze Tilt-Out Bin
The soft freeze tilt-out bin is designed to
be warmer than the freezer compartment.
It is ideal for keeping ice cream and frozen
yogurt ready to serve.
Condiment Shelf
The condiment shelf is designed to hold small
items to help keep your freezer organized.
Energy-Saving Tips
• Locate the unit in the coolest part of
the room, out of direct sunlight, and
away from heating ducts or registers.
Do not place the unit next to heatproducing appliances such as a
range, oven, or dishwasher. If this is
not possible, a section of cabinetry or
an added layer of insulation between
the two appliances will help the unit
operate more efficiently.
• Level the appliance so that the door
closes tightly.
• Refer to the “SETTING THE
TEMPERATURE CONTROL” section
for the suggested temperature
control settings.
• Do not overcrowd the unit or block cold air vents. Doing so causes the appliance to
run longer and use more energy.
• Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing them in the unit. This cuts
down on moisture build-up inside the unit.
• Organize the appliance to reduce door openings. Remove as many items as
needed at one time and close the door as soon as possible.
18 Care & Cleaning
Vacation And Moving Tips
Short Vacations:
• Leave the unit operating during vacations of less than three weeks.
Long Vacations:
If the appliance will not be used for several months:
• Remove all food and unplug the power cord.
• Clean and dry the interior thoroughly.
• Leave the door open slightly, blocking it open if necessary, to prevent odor and
mold growth.
Moving: When moving the unit, follow these guidelines to prevent
damage:
• Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall outlet.
• Remove foods, then defrost, and clean the appliance.
• Secure all loose items such as base panel, baskets, and shelves by taping them
securely in place to prevent damage.
• In the moving vehicle, secure the unit in an upright position to prevent movement.
Also protect outside of the appliance with a blanket, or similar item.
Care & Cleaning
Keep your unit clean to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up any spills immediately and clean
at least twice a year. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners
or strong alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash any removable parts in a
dishwasher. Always unplug the electrical power.
CAUTION
• When moving the appliance pull straight out. Do not shift the unit from side to
side as this may tear or gouge the floor covering.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch interior metal surfaces
with wet or damp hands.
CAUTION
• Turning the temperature control to “OFF” (See IQ TouchTM Electronic Control)
turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect electrical power to the LED
lights or other electrical components. Unplug the unit or switch the breaker that
supplies power to the unit to the off position.
• Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the
appliance surface when removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from tape or
labels can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or,
touch the glue residue with the sticky side of tape you have already removed. Do
not remove the serial plate.
Care & Cleaning 19
NOTE
• Do Not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers,
flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches, or
cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets,
or cabinet liners. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads or other abrasive
materials.
• Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline
solutions on any surface.
• Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
• Always unplug the electrical power.

paper towel, and rinse. Use a non-abrasive
stainless steel cleaner. These cleaners can
be purchased at most home improvement
or major department stores. Always follow
manufacturer’s instruction.
• NOTE: Always clean, wipe and dry with grain to
prevent scratching.
• Wash the rest of the cabinet with warm water
and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe
dry with a clean soft cloth.
