notamment :
• N’utilisez l’appareil que pour son usage
prévu, comme décrit dans le présent manuel
de l’utilisateur.
• Installez le réfrigérateur/congélateur
conformément aux directives d’installation
avant de l’utiliser.
• Ne laissez pas les enfants grimper, s’asseoir,
se tenir debout ni se pendre aux clayettes
du réfrigérateur/congélateur. Ils pourraient
endommager le réfrigérateur et se blesser
gravement.
• Une fois le congélateur en marche,
ne touchez pas les surfaces froides
du congélateur, surtout si vous avez
les mains humides ou mouillées : la peau
risque d’adhérer à ces surfaces très froides.
• N’entreposez et n’utilisez pas d’essence
ou autres vapeurs et liquides inflammables
à proximité de cet appareil ou de tout autre
appareil électroménager.
• Le congélateur doté d’une machine
jJODoRQVDXWRPDWLTXH³évitez le contact
avec les pièces mobiles du mécanisme éjecteur
ou avec l’élément chauffant situé à la partie
inférieure de la machine à glaçons. Ne posez
pas les doigts ou les mains sur le mécanisme
de la machine à glaçons pendant que
le congélateur est branché.
• Débranchez votre réfrigérateur/congélateur
avant de le nettoyer et de le réparer.
REMARQUE : Nous vous recommandons
vivement de confier toute réparation
à un technicien qualifié.
• Avant de remplacer une ampoule grillée,
le réfrigérateur/congélateur doit être débranché
afin d’éviter tout contact avec un fil sous
tension. (Une ampoule grillée peut se briser
pendant l’opération). REMARQUE : Lorsque vous
placez
la commande sur «0» (éteint), l’alimentation
électrique de l’ampoule n’est pas coupée.
• Ne faites PAS recongeler des aliments
surgelés qui ont complètement dégelé.
DANGER : RISQUES POUR LES ENFANTS
Les enfants pris au piège ou morts d’asphyxie
sont toujours d’actualité. Les appareils de
réfrigération abandonés sont toujours aussi
dangereux, même si on n’attend que “quelque
jours” pour s’en débarasser. Si vous ne gardez
pas votre ancien appareil, veuillez suivre
les directives ci-dessous afin de prévenir
les accidents.
Avant de vous débarasser de votre vieux
appareil de réfrigération :
• Démontez les portes.
• Laissez les clayettes en place afin d’empêcher
les enfants de grimper à l’intérieur.
RÉFRIGÉRANTS
Tous les appareils de réfrigération contiennent
des réfrigérants qui, conformément aux
lois fédérales, doivent être enlevés avant
toute élimination de l’appareil. Si vous vous
débarrassez de vieux appareils de réfrigération,
vérifiez, auprès de la société qui s’occupe
de leur élimination, ce que vous devez faire.

HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
Do not, under any circumstances,
cut or remove the third (ground) prong
from the power cord. For personal safety,
this appliance must be properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet
to minimize the possibility of electric shock
hazard from this appliance.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded.
Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your personal responsibility
and obligation to have it replaced with a properly
grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits, which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator/freezer by pulling
on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and
pull straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power
cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks
or abrasion damage along its length or at
either end.
When moving the refrigerator/freezer away
from the wall, be careful not to roll over or
damage the power cord.
The refrigerator/freezer should always
be plugged into its own individual electrical
outlet which has a voltage rating that matches
the rating plate.
DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER PLUG TO CONNECT
THE REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER TO A 2-PRONG
OUTLET.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD WITH
THIS APPLIANCE.

Do not install the refrigerator/freezer where
temperatures will be below 60°F (16°C) because
it will not run often enough to maintain proper
temperatures, and the refrigerator will develop
high internal humidity.
For proper installation, the refrigerator/

of hard material the same height as the rest
of the flooring. This surface should be
strong enough to support a fully loaded

Level unit
All models have 4-point leveling. The front is
supported by leveling legs; the rear is supported
by adjustable wheels. Both are accessible from
the front of the unit.
• To level the back of the unit, turn the 7/16”
hex nut located above the front wheels. Turn
clockwise to raise or counterclockwise to lower
the unit.
• For front leveling, use a 1-1/4” open-end
wrench.
• Adjust height of unit to match installation
cutout opening 83-1/2 to 84-1/2”. The unit
should be level and plumb with cabinetry.
CAUTION:
The rear leveling wheels and front leveling legs
are limited to a maximum height adjustment of
1”. If the installation requires more than 84-1/2”
height, the installer should elevate the unit on
a sheet of plywood or runners. Cabinetry trim
could also be added across the top of the
opening to shorten the opening. If you attempt
to raise the unit more than 1”, you will damage
the front leveling legs and the rear leveling
wheels.
PRUDENCE
Les roues de nivellement arrière et les pattes
de nivellement avant permettent un réglage
maximal de 25 mm (1 po). Si l’ouverture pour
l’appareil ménager a une hauteur supérieure
à 2,15 m (84-1/2 po), l’installateur doit élever
l’appareil ménager sur une feuille de contreplaqué ou des glissières. Il est également possible
d’ajouter des baguettes de finition des placards
sur le haut de l’ouverture afin de la réduire.
Lever l’appareil ménager de plus de 25 mm

• The “L” rods can be found in the upper left
and right corners of the unit in the access
compartment. Look through the access
compartment to make sure the rods line
up with the anti-tip bracket.
• There are 2 washers and a hair pin cotter per
rod. Remove the washers and hair pin cotter
from the end of the rod.
• Rotate and move the “L” rod into the slot
LQWKHDQWLWLSEUDFNHWWDE2QFHLWLVLQ
the slot, rotate the “L” rod so the hook portion
is pointing down. The holes at the front end
of the rod should be in a vertical position.
Do this to both sides.
• Pull out on the end of the rod to make sure
it is secure in the bracket.
• Locate the hole on the rod that is closest
to the unit. A hair pin cotter will be put through
this hole to secure the rod. If this hole appears
to be too far away for a snug fit against
the unit, add the washers one at a time until
the pin will fit tightly into the hole.
• Align the straight section of the pin with
the hole from the underside of the rod. Push
the pin up until it snaps into position. Pliers
may be used. NOTE: The hair pin cotter must be
vertical when this step is completed to ensure
the “L” rod is engaged in the bracket.
• Check the rod for tightness by pulling forward.
If the rod moves, remove the hair pin cotter
and place another washer on the rod.
Reinsert the pin.
• Replace the grille panel.

– You may hear a whooshing or gurgling sound when the door closes.
This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.
– A water dripping sound may occur during the defrost cycle as ice
melts from the evaporator and flows into the drain pan.
– The flow of refrigerant through the freezer cooling coils may make a
gurgling sound like boiling water.
– Water dropping on the defrost heater can cause a sizzling, popping or
buzzing sound during the defrost cycle.
– You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator is
first plugged in or during/after the defrost cycle. This happens as the
refrigerator cools to the correct temperature.
– The compressor may cause a clicking or chirping sound when
attempting to restart (this could take up to 5 minutes).
– The electronic control board may cause a clicking sound when relays
activate to control refrigerator components.
– Ice cubes dropping into the bin and water running in pipes as
icemaker refills.
– The icemaker water valve will buzz when the icemaker fills with water.

in an area where service by a GE Authorized Servicer is not available, you may be responsible for a trip
charge or you may be required to bring the product to an Authorized GE Service location for service.
In Alaska the warranty is the same except that it is LIMITED because you must pay to ship the product
to the service shop or for the service technician’s travel costs to your home.
All warranty service will be provided by our Factory Service Centers or by our authorized Customer Care®
servicers during normal working hours.
Should your appliance need service, during warranty period or beyond, in the USA call 800.444.1845.
In Canada: 800.561.3344. Please have your serial number and model number available when calling for service.
