to avoid cut injuries. Staples can also
damage finishes if they come in contact
with other appliances or furniture.
Child Safety
Packing Materials:
• Packing cartons covered with rugs,
bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch
wrap may become airtight chambers and
can quickly cause suffocation.
• Destroy or recycle the product’s carton,
plastic bags, and any other exterior
wrapping material immediately after the
refrigerator is unpacked. Children should
never play with these items.
Child Entrapment And Suffocation:
• These problems are not limited to the
past. Whether junked, abandoned or
temporarily stored (even for a few hours),
unattended refrigerators and freezers are
dangerous. Please take the precautions
listed below.
Proper Disposal Of Refrigerators/
Freezers
We strongly encourage responsible appliance
recycling/disposal methods. Check with your
utility company or visit
www.energystar.gov/recycle for more
information on recycling your old refrigerator.
Before you throw away your old
refrigerator/freezer:
• Remove the doors.
• Leave the shelves
in place so
children may not
easily climb inside.

Safety
Electrical information
WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to
ensure that your refrigerator’s safety
mechanisms are operating correctly.
• The refrigerator must be plugged
into its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60
Hz., AC-only electric outlet. The
power cord of the appliance is equipped
with a three-prong grounding plug for
your protection against electrical shock
hazards. It must be plugged directly
into a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. The receptacle must be
installed in accordance with local codes
and ordinances. Consult a qualified
electrician. Do not use an extension
cord or adapter plug.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should
be replaced by the manufacturer, service
technician or a qualified person to
prevent any risk.
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling
on the power cord. Always grip the
plug firmly, and pull straight out from
the receptacle to prevent damaging the
power cord.
• Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning
and before replacing a LED light to avoid
electrical shock.
• Performance may be affected if
the voltage varies by 10% or more.
Operating the refrigerator 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 refrigerator from being
turned off accidentally.
• Avoid connecting refrigerator to a
Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
Grounding type wall receptacle
Do not, under any
circumstances,
cut, remove, or
bypass the
grounding prong.

Installation
NOTE
The refrigerator doors are designed to shut
by themselves within a 20 degree opening.
Your refrigerator should be positioned
to allow easy access to a counter when
removing food. For best use of drawers and
freezer baskets, the refrigerator should be
in a position where both the refrigerator and
freezer doors can be fully opened.
Guidelines for final positioning of your
refrigerator:
• All four corners of the cabinet must rest
firmly on the floor.
• The cabinet should be level at the front
and rear.
• The sides should tilt ¼ inch (6 mm) from
front to back (to ensure that doors close
and seal properly).
• Doors should align with each other and
be level.
All of these conditions can be met by
raising or lowering the adjustable front
rollers.
To level the cabinet using the front rollers:
1 Open both doors and remove the toe
grille (see “Toe Grille Installation and
Removal” in the “Installation” section).
2 Close the doors and use a flat-blade
screwdriver or ⅜ inch socket wrench to
raise or lower the front rollers.
3 Ensure both doors are bind-free with
their seals touching the cabinet on all
four sides.
Raise
To level the doors using the adjustable
lower hinge (some models):
1 Before leveling either door, remove
set screw that locks door height into
position. (The door cannot be adjusted
without set screw removed).
2 If the refrigerator door is lower than
the freezer door, raise the refrigerator
door by turning the adjustment screw
clockwise using a 7/16 inch wrench.
(See illustration.)
3 If the freezer door is lower than the

Connecting The Water Supply
WARNING
To avoid electric shock, which can
cause death or severe personal injury,
disconnect the refrigerator from
electrical power before connecting a
water supply line to the refrigerator.
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.
• Do not reuse compression fitting or
use thread seal tape.
• 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 PhillipsTM
screwdriver
• Access to a household cold water line
with water pressure between 30 and
100 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼ inch
(6.4mm) 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
refrigerator to your cold water pipe. Then
add approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters),
so the refrigerator 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.
• Do not reuse compression fitting or use
thread seal tape.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve)
for connecting a copper water supply
line to the ice maker inlet valve.
NOTE
Check with your local building authority
for recommendations on water lines and
associated materials prior to installing
your new refrigerator. Depending on your
local/state building codes, Electrolux
recommends for homes with existing
valves its Smart Choice® water line
kit 5305513409 (with a 6 ft. Stainless
Steel Water Line) and for homes without
an existing valve, Electrolux recommends
its Smart Choice® water line kit
5305510264 (with a 20 ft. Copper Water
Line with self-tapping saddle valve). Please
refer to www.electroluxappliances.com
for more information.
To Connect Water Supply Line To Ice
Maker Inlet Valve
1. Disconnect refrigerator from electric
power source.
2. Place end of water supply line into sink
or bucket. Turn ON water supply and
flush supply line until water is clear. Turn
OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3. Remove plastic cap from water valve
inlet and discard cap.
4. If you use copper tubing - Slide brass
compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve)
onto water supply line. Push water
supply line into water valve inlet as far as
it will go (¼ inch/6.4 mm). Slide ferrule
(sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten
compression nut onto valve. Tighten
another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT
over tighten. See Figure 1.
Connecting The Water Supply
If you use stainless steel tubing - The
nut and ferrule are already assembled on
the tubing. Slide compression nut onto
valve inlet and finger tighten compression
nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn
with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
See Figure 2.
5. With steel clamp and screw, secure
water supply line (copper tubing only) to
rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6. Coil excess water supply line (copper
tubing only), about 2½ turns, behind
refrigerator as shown and arrange coils
so they do not vibrate or wear against
any other surface.
7. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve
and tighten any connections that leak.
8. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power
source.
9. To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal
arm (side mounted) or set the ice
maker’s On/Off power switch to the “I”
position (rear mounted).
10. Test system before use. Check for leaks
again after 24 hours.

Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser
Priming the water supply
system
Your refrigerator’s water supply system
includes several tubing lines, an advanced
water filter, a distribution valve bank, and a
reserve tank to ensure ample supply to the ice
and water dispenser at all times. This system
needs to be completely filled with water when
first connected to an external supply line.
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation,
recommended water supply pressure
should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi.
Excessive pressure may cause water
filter to malfunction.
To prime the water supply system:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and
holding a drinking glass against the
water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water
comes out of the dispenser. It may take
about 1½ minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about
three minutes to flush the system and
plumbing connections of any impurities
(stopping to empty the glass as
necessary).
Using the ice maker after installation
Before making ice for the first time, be sure
to prime the water supply system. Air in new
plumbing lines can result in two or three
empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the
system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may
be discolored or have an odd flavor.
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, turn the ice maker’s On/Off switch
to Off. Otherwise, the ice maker’s fill valve
may make a loud chattering noise when it
attempts to operate without water.
Turning the ice maker on and off
Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s
On/Off power switch. To gain access to
the ice maker, pull the extra shelf out (some
models). Press the switch to the “O” position
to turn it Off and press to the “I” position to
turn it On.
Off On
NOTE
Wire
Signal Arm
The water dispenser has a built-in device
that shuts off the water flow after three
minutes of continuous use. To reset this
shutoff device, simply release the dispenser
paddle.
Ice maker operation & care
The ice maker, ice bin, and dispenser feeding
mechanism are located in the top of the
freezer compartment. After the refrigerator is
installed properly and has cooled for several
hours, the ice maker can produce ice within
24 hours. It can completely fill an ice bin in
about two days.
The ice maker produces four to six pounds
of ice every 24 hours depending on usage
conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of eight
cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.
NOTE
The ice maker also has a built-in wire
signal arm, which automatically stops ice
production when the ice bin is full. This
signal arm should not be used to manually
stop the ice maker.
Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser
IMPORTANT
Small ice cubes or ice chips jamming in
the ice maker may be a sign that your
water filter needs changing. If you have
a side mounted ice maker you may also
experience hollow cubes -- partially frozen
cubes with water inside. When these cubes
are harvested they break open and spill
water over the other ice cubes in the ice
bin, forming a solid mass of ice. As the
water filter nears the end of its useful life
and becomes clogged with particles, less
water is delivered to the ice maker during
each cycle. The ice maker can’t fill every
cube in the ice maker mold, leading to
small cubes or chips that can get caught
between the ice ejector blades and the
stripper. Remember, if your ice maker is
jamming with small ice cubes or it’s been
six 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.
• Turn off the ice maker when cleaning the
freezer and during vacations.
- If you turn off the ice maker for a
long period of time, you should also
turn off the water supply valve.
• To avoid splashing, dispense ice into
your container before adding liquids.
• It is normal for ice to fill to the top of the
ice bin.
Off On
Wire
Signal Arm
Ice maker/dispenser tips
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop
an odd flavor. Empty the ice bin as
explained below.
• Occasionally shake the ice bin to keep
ice separated.
• If your refrigerator is not connected to
a water supply or the water supply is
turned off, turn off the ice maker by
pressing the On/Off switch.
• If you need a large quantity of ice at one
time, it is best to get cubes directly from
the ice bin.
• The following sounds are normal when
the ice maker is operating:
- Motor running
- Ice dropping into ice bin
- Water valve opening or closing
- Ice loosening from tray
- Running water
• When dispensing ice, you will hear a
snapping or clicking sound when the ice
chute opens and closes.

Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser
Cleaning the ice maker
Clean the ice maker and ice bin at regular
intervals, particularly before you take a
vacation or move.
To clean the ice maker:
1 Turn off ice production by pressing the
ice maker’s Off/On switch.
2 Remove the ice bin by lifting up and out.
3 Empty and carefully clean the ice bin
with mild detergent. Rinse with clear
water. Do not use harsh or abrasive
cleaners.
4 Allow the ice bin to dry completely before
replacing in the freezer.
5 Remove ice chips and clean the ice bin
shelf and the freezer door chute.
6 Replace the ice bin. Press the ice
maker’s Off/On switch to resume ice
production.
Remove and empty the ice storage bin if:
• An extended power failure (one hour
or longer) causes ice cubes in the ice
storage bin to melt and freeze together,
jamming the dispenser mechanism.
• You do not use the ice dispenser
frequently. Ice cubes will freeze together
in the bin, jamming the dispenser
mechanism.
Remove the ice storage bin and shake to
loosen the cubes or clean as explained above.
CAUTION
NEVER use an ice pick or similar sharp
instrument to break up the ice. This
could damage the ice storage bin and
dispenser mechanism.
IMPORTANT
When removing or replacing the ice bin,
DO NOT rotate the auger in the ice bin.
If the auger is accidentally rotated, you
must realign the auger by turning it in 90
degree turns (see below) until the ice bin
fits into place with the drive mechanism.
If the auger is not properly aligned when
replacing the ice bin, the refrigerator will
only dispense Crushed Ice. The freezer
door may also not close properly causing
warm air to leak into the freezer.
Auger
Changing The Filter
Locating the filters
Your refrigerator is equipped with separate
water and air filtering systems. The water filter
system filters all dispensed drinking water, as
well as the water used to produce ice. The air
filter removes odors and impurities from the
refrigerator compartment.
Water filter
The water filter is located at the top right side
of the fresh food compartment.
Air filter
The air filter is located at the top of the fresh
food compartment next to the water filter.
Replacing the air filter
In general, you should change the air filter
every six months (the filter status light on
the Touch Panel prompts you to replace
the filter after six months) to ensure optimal
filtering of refrigerator odors. You may want
to adjust this time period depending on the
types and amounts of food you typically
store in your refrigerator. To replace your
PureAdvantageTM air filter:
1 Pull the air filter housing straight out.
2 Remove the old filter and discard it.
3 Unpack the new filter and place it inside
the housing.
4 Slide the housing back into position.
5 Press and hold the Air Filter Reset
button on the electronic control panel
for three seconds. When the display
changes from “Replace” to “Good,” the
status has been reset.
6 The Air Filter Reset will turn itself off
after a few seconds.
Air Filter
NOTE
The electronic touch panel, located at the
freezer door, includes controls to monitor
the status of your air filter. See the Controls
section for more information about these
controls.
Replacing the water filter
In general, you should change the water filter
every six months to ensure highest possible
water quality. The Water Filter Status light
on the Touch Panel prompts you to replace
the filter after a standard amount of water
(400 gallons for PureAdvantageTM) has
flowed through the system.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a
period of time (during moving for example),
change the filter before reinstalling the
refrigerator.

Storing Food & Saving Energy
Ideas for storing foods
Fresh food storage
• Keep the fresh food compartment
between 34°F and 40°F with an
optimum temperature of 37°F.
• Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator
shelves, which reduces air circulation
and causes uneven cooling.
Fruits and vegetables
• Store fruits and vegetables in crisper
drawers, where trapped moisture helps
preserve food quality for longer time
periods.
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry securely
so leakage and contamination of other
foods or surfaces does not occur.
• Use the meat keeper drawer for shortterm storage. Any meat to be kept
longer than two 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 ⅔ 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 the freezer
• 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.
• Leave a space between packages, so
cold air can circulate freely, allowing food
to freeze as quickly as possible.
• Avoid storing hard-to-freeze foods on the
freezer door shelves. These foods are
best stored in the freezer interior where
the temperature varies less.
Ideas for saving energy
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
heat-producing 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 refrigerator
operate more efficiently.
• Level the refrigerator so that the doors
close tightly.
Temperature settings
• Refer to the “Controls” section in this
Use & Care Guide for procedures on
temperature settings.
Food storage
• 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.

H Water valve Makes a buzzing sound
each time it opens to fill the ice maker.
IDrain pan (not removable) You may hear
water dripping into the drain pan during
the defrost cycle.
J Condenser May create minimal sounds
from forced air.
K Motorized damper May produce a light
humming during operation.
L Ice dispensing paddle When
dispensing ice, you will hear a snapping
or clicking sound when the solenoid
opens and closes the ice chute.
M Perfect TempTM Drawer (some
models) Fans run intermittently when
door is closed but turn off when door is
opened (except when fridge is in Sabbath
Mode). Air control valve may produce a
light humming during operation.
NOTE
Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator is
not a sound insulator.
NOTE
During automatic defrost cycle, a red
glow in the back wall vents of your freezer
compartment is normal.
Care & Cleaning
Protecting your investment
Keeping your refrigerator clean maintains appearance and prevents odor build-up. Wipe up
any spills immediately and clean the freezer and fresh food compartments at least twice a year.
When cleaning, take the following precautions:
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 cleaning materials.
• Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners or strong alkaline solutions
on any surface.
• Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with bleach to clean stainless steel.
• Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
• Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
NOTE
If you set your temperature controls to turn off cooling, power to lights and other electrical
components will continue until you unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
• Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments
which can scratch the appliance surface.
• Do not remove the serial plate.
CAUTION
• Pull the refrigerator straight out to move it. Shifting it from side to side may damage
flooring. Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond the plumbing connections.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated surfaces with
wet or damp hands.
IMPORTANT
If you store or move your refrigerator in freezing temperatures, be sure to completely drain the
water supply system. Failure to do so could result in water leaks when the refrigerator is put
back into service. Contact a service representative to perform this operation.
Refer to the guide on the next page for details on caring and cleaning specific areas of your
