REFRIGERATOR SAFETY INFORMATION
This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety
messages will follow the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER”, “WARNING”, or “CAUTION”. These words are defined as:
DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in minor or moderate injury.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, or injury when using your
refrigerator follow these basic safety precautions:
„ This refrigerator must be properly installed and located in
accordance with the Installation Instructions before it is
used.
„ Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the door
handles or the shelves in the refrigerator. They could
seriously injure themselves.
„ Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and making repairs.
„ In refrigerators with automatic ice makers, avoid contact
with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with
the heating element that releases the cubes. Do not place
fingers or hands on the automatic ice making mechanism
while the refrigerator is plugged in.
„ NOTE: Repairs must be performed by a qualified Service
Professional.
„ Replace all parts and panels before operating.
„ Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an
extension cord. However, if you must use an extension cord,
it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed (in the United
States) or a CSA certified (in Canada), 3-wire grounding type
appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug
and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15
amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.
„ Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water
when they are cold. Glass shelves and covers may break if
exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such
as bumping or dropping. Tempered glass is designed to
shatter into many small pieces if it breaks.
„ Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas; clearances
between the doors and between the doors and cabinet are
necessarily small. Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
„ To prevent suffocation and entrapment hazards to children,
Remove the fresh food and freezer doors from any
refrigerator before disposing of it or discontinuing its use.
„ Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment
when hands are damp or wet., skin may stick to these
extremely cold surfaces.
„ Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
„ Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.
„ Power to the refrigerator cannot be disconnected by
any setting on the control panel, refrigerator must be
unplugged to remove power.
„ Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice (on models with ice
dispenser)

INSTALLATION
WARNING
Explosion Hazard.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from refrigerator. Failure to do so can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
WARNING
Tip Over Hazard.
Built-in style models (model PYE, CYE, and PWE) are top heavy, especially with any doors open. These
models must be secured with the anti-tip floor bracket to prevent tipping forward, which could result
in death or serious injury. Read and follow the entire installation instructions for installing the anti-tip
floor bracket packed with your refrigerator.
CONNECTING ELECTRICITY
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard.
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet
Do not remove the ground prong
Do not use an adapter
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
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. Do not use an
adapter.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own
individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that
matches the rating plate.
3
A 115 Volt AC, 60 Hz, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. 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 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 away from the wall, be careful
not to roll over or damage the power cord.

HOT WATER DISPENSER
WARNING
Scalding Hazard.
The hot water dispenser is capable of heating water to a temperature of approximately 185°F (85°C).
Water temperatures above 125°F (52°C) can cause severe burns or death from scalding. Children, the
disabled, and the elderly are at highest risk of being scalded.
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual. To reduce the risk of severe burns,
scald injuries, or death when using your hot water dispenser, the instructions below must be followed:
hand. Do not dispense hot water into a cup resting on the
dispenser tray, as this will increase water splash.
„ Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality.
„ The hot water dispenser is designed to only dispense water.
Do not attempt to heat or dispense anything other than
water. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean the tank.
„ A newly installed water filter cartridge will cause water to
spurt from the dispenser. Run 2 gallons of water through
the cold water dispenser (about 5 minutes) to remove air
from the system. Until this air is removed from the system
through the cold water dispenser, DO NOT use the hot water
dispenser as it may result in spurting of hot water and lead
to hot water scalding.
„ The hot water dispensing tank is a non-pressurized tank,
with a vent on the tank and a dispenser tube outlet. Do
not modify the system, close or block the dispense tube, or
connect any other type of device to the tank or dispense
tube. Doing so may lead to rupture of the tank and hot
water scalding.
„ The water coming from the dispenser is very hot. Use
extreme caution when dispensing and drinking water. Allow
water to cool to a drinkable temperature before drinking.
„ When dispensing water below 125ÛF, always test the
temperature of the water before drinking.
„ When dispensing hot water, the container can become
very hot. Use a temperature insulating container, such
as ceramic or Styrofoam. Using container materials such
as paper or plastic may result in a burn while holding the
cup. Do not use glass containers, as thermal shock can
cause the container to break and may result in scalding or
lacerations.
„ Do not permit children to use the hot water dispenser.
„ The hot water dispensing knob requires both twist and
push motions in order to reduce the risk of hot water being
dispensed unintentionally or by small children. Do not
tamper with or modify the hot water dispensing knob.
„ Always follow the formula manufacturer’s instructions for
preparation of baby formula.
„ Hold your cup or container close to the dispensing point to
minimize splashing of hot water that could contact your
PROPER DISPOSAL OF YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR
WARNING Suffocation and child entrapment hazard.
Remove fresh-food and freezer doors from the refrigerator, prior to disposal. Failure to do so can result
in child entrapment which can lead to death or brain damage.
IMPORTANT:
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past.
Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous even if
they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of your old
refrigerator, please follow the instructions below to help prevent
accidents.
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or
Freezer:
Refrigerants
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants, which under
federal law must be removed prior to product disposal. If you
are getting rid of an old refrigeration product, check with the
company handling the disposal about what to do.
„ Take off the fresh food and freezer doors.
„ Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

„ Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of narrow glasses.
Backed-up ice can jam the chute or cause the door in the
chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute remove the ice
bucket, poke it through with a wooden spoon.
„ Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the
door ice maker bin. Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage drawer may cause the ice maker or auger to jam.
10
„ To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass
close to, but not touching, the dispenser opening.
„ Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you
selected CUBED ICE. This happens occasionally when a few
cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
„ After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip from the
chute.
„ Sometimes a small mound of snow will form on the door in the
ice chute. This condition is normal and usually occurs when you
have dispensed crushed ice repeatedly. The snow will eventually
evaporate.

About the GE® RPWF water filter cartridge.
Water Filter Cartridge
The water filter cartridge is located in one of the following places:
Bottom-freezer (BF) refrigerators:
- In the water filter compartment on the right side wall of the
left-hand fresh food door.
- In the fresh food interior on the left side wall, near the top.
2. While continuing to ensure cartridge
is fully seated in the holder, gently
swing the filter inward until it is in a
vertical position. If filter will not swing
easily, check to ensure filter is properly
aligned and fully seated within the
cartridge holder.
3. Run 2 gallons of water through the cold
water dispenser (about 5 minutes) to
remove air from the system. A newly
installed filter cartridge will cause
water to spurt from the dispenser. Use
a large pitcher or sports bottle to catch
the water spray. DO NOT use the hot
water dispenser or hands-free auto-fill
(some models) until all air is removed
from the system.
When to replace the filter cartridge
The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or earlier
if the flow of water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases.
Touch Screen Models: A filter status message will appear on the
screen when the water filter needs to be replaced. The filter status
message must be reset manually.
The “Water Filter: Replace” status message can be reset by
entering the Settings menu from the home screen. Then, select
the Water Filter menu and press the RESET button. This will reset
the filter status.
4. Reset Filter Status message
Touch Screen Models: Access RESET button through the Water
Filter menu.
Non-touch Screen Models: A filter indicator light (or message)
will illuminate on the screen when the water filter needs to be
replaced. This light must be reset by pressing and holding the
Reset Filter button for three seconds.
Non-touch Screen Models: Press and hold the Reset Filter button
for three seconds.
WARNING Using the hot water dispenser prior to purging air
from the system may result in spurting of hot water and lead
to hot water scalding. Follow the instructions above to purge all air
from the system through the cold water dispenser prior to using the
hot water dispenser.
The filter cartridge has a maximum life of six months and
should be replaced when indicated by the filter indicator on the
refrigerator, or sooner if a significant reduction in flow occurs.
Removing the filter cartridge
To replace the filter, first remove the old cartridge by opening
the filter door and pulling on the bottom of the cartridge to allow
it to swing outward. When the cartridge can no longer swing,
gently pull to unseat it from the cartridge holder. DO NOT TWIST
CARTIDGE. A small amount of water may drip out.
Installing the Filter Cartridge
1. Align top of filter with cartridge holder and push until cartridge
is fully seated.
Push/Pull
Swing
Note: It is normal for water to appear discolored during the initial
system flush. Water color will return to normal after first few minutes
of dispensing.
Filter Bypass Plug
To reduce the risk of property damage due to water leakage, you
MUST use the filter bypass plug when a replacement filter cartridge
is not available. The dispenser and icemaker will not operate without
either the filter or bypass plug installed. The bypass plug is installed
in the same way as a filter cartridge.
WARNING
To reduce the risk associated with choking, do not allow children under 3 years of age to have access to
small parts during the installation of this product. The disposable filter cartridge should be replaced every
6 months at the rated capacity, or sooner if a noticeable reduction in flow rate occurs.
For the maximum benefit of your filtration system, GE recommends the use of GE-branded filters only. Using GE-branded filters in GE
and Hotpoint® refrigerators provides optimal performance and reliability. GE filters meet rigorous industry NSF standards for safety
and quality that are important for products that are filtering your water. GE has not qualified non-GE-branded filters for use in GE and
Hotpoint refrigerators and there is no assurance that non-GE-branded filters meet GE's standards for quality, performance and reliability.
If you have questions, or to order additional filter cartridges, visit our website at www.geapplianceparts.com or call
GE Parts and Accessories, 800.626.2002.
Customers in Canada should consult the yellow pages for the nearest Camco Service Center.

About the automatic ice maker.
A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.
Automatic Ice maker (on some models)
Ice maker
Feeler Arm
The ice maker will produce seven cubes
per cycle approximately 100–130 cubes
in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer
compartment temperature, room temperature,
number of door openings and other use
conditions.
The ice maker will fill with water when it cools to
15°F (–10°C). A newly installed refrigerator may
take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
line connection is made to the unit or if the
water supply to an operating refrigerator is
turned off, make sure that the ice maker is
turned off. Once the water has been connected
to the refrigerator, the ice maker may be turned
on. See the table below for details.
You may hear a buzzing sound each time the
ice maker fills with water.
Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow
the water line to clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the
feeler arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler
arm, the ice maker will stop producing ice. It is
normal for several cubes to be joined together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will
become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.
NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average water
pressure, you may hear the ice maker cycle
multiple times when making one batch of ice.
WARNING
To minimize the risk of personal injury, avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector
mechanism, or with the heating element that releases the cubes. Do not place fingers or
hands on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in.

11 CONNECTING THE REFRIGERATOR
TO THE HOUSE WATER LINE
A
A cold water supply is required for automatic ice maker
operation. If there is not a cold water supply, you will
need to provide one. See Installing the Water Line section.
NOTES:
• Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be
sure the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the
wall outlet.
• If your refrigerator does not have a water filter, we
recommend installing one if your water supply has
sand or particles that could clog the screen of the
refrigerator’s water valve. Install it in the water line
near the refrigerator. If using GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing Kit, you will need an additional tube
(WX08X10002) to connect the filter. Do not cut plastic
tube to install filter.
• Before connecting the water line to the house, purge
the house line for at least 2 minutes.
If you are using copper tubing, place a compression nut
and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing coming

Installation Instructions
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Recommended copper water supply kits are WX8X2,
WX8X3 or WX8X4, depending on the amount of tubing
you need. Approved plastic water supply lines are GE
SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing (WX08X10006,
WX08X10015 and WX08X10025).
When connecting your refrigerator to a GE Reverse
Osmosis Water System, the only approved installation
is with a GE RVKit. For other reverse osmosis water
systems, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
If the water supply to the refrigerator is from a
Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System (RO)
AND the refrigerator also has a water filter,
use the refrigerator’s filter bypass plug. Using
the refrigerator’s water filtration cartridge in
conjunction with an RO water filter can result in
hollow ice cubes.
This water line installation is not warranted by the
refrigerator or ice maker manufacturer. Follow
these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of
expensive water damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in
house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator
parts and lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a
qualified plumber to correct water hammer before
installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.
To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook
up the water line to the hot water line.
For LCD Models: If the refrigerator is operated
before the water connection is made to the ice
maker, see ICE MAKER under “settings” menu of
the LCD Operations section and follow the screen
commands to turn the ice maker OFF.
Do not install the ice maker tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
When using any electrical device (such as a power
drill) during installation, be sure the device is double
insulated or grounded in a manner to prevent the
hazard of electric shock, or is battery powered.
All installations must be in accordance with local
plumbing code requirements.
• Copper or GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing
kit, 1/4” outer diameter to connect
the refrigerator to the water supply. If using
copper, be sure both ends of the tubing are
cut square.
To determine how much tubing you need:
measure the distance from the water valve
on the back of the refrigerator to the water supply
pipe. Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing to allow
the refrigerator to move out from the wall after
installation.
GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are
available in the following lengths:
6’ (1.8 m)
– WX08X10006
15’ (4.6 m) – WX08X10015
25’ (7.6 m) – WX08X10025
34
Installation Instructions
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE (cont.)
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently
used drinking water line.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED (CONT.)
NOTE: The only GE approved plastic tubing
is that supplied in GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator
Tubing kits. Do not use any other plastic water
supply line because the line is under pressure at all
times. Certain types of plastic will crack or rupture
with age and cause water damage to your home.
• A GE water supply kit (containing tubing,
shutoff valve and fittings listed below) is available
at extra cost from your dealer or from Parts
and Accessories, 800.626.2002 (in Canada
1.800.661.1616).
• A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. (1.4–8.1 bar).
1 SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear
the line of water.
2 CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION
Choose a location for the valve that is easily
accessible. It is best to connect into the side
of a vertical water pipe. When it is necessary
to connect into a horizontal water pipe, make
the connection to the top or side, rather than at
the bottom, to avoid drawing off any sediment
from the water pipe.
• Power drill.
• 1/2” or adjustable wrench.
• Straight and Phillips blade screwdriver.
• Two 1/4 ” outer diameter compression nuts
DQGIHUUXOHVVOHHYHV³WRFRQQHFWWKHFRSSHU
tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator
water valve.
OR
• If you are using a GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing kit, the necessary fittings
are preassembled to the tubing.
3 DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a 1/4” hole in the water pipe (even if using
a self-piercing valve), using a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in
the pipe.
• If your existing copper water line has a flared
fitting at the end, you will need an adapter
(available at plumbing supply stores) to connect
the water line to the refrigerator OR you can cut
off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then
use a compression fitting. Do not cut formed end
from GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator tubing.
Take care not to allow water to drain into
the drill.
Failure to drill a 1/4” hole may result in reduced
ice production or smaller cubes.
• Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line.
The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with
a minimum inside diameter of 5/32” at the point of
connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type
shutoff valves are included in many water supply
kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type
valve complies with your local plumbing codes.

Normal operating conditions.
Newer refrigerators sound different from older refrigerators.
Modern refrigerators have more features and use newer technology.
Do you hear what I hear? These conditions are normal.
HUMMM...
WHOOSH...
„ The new high efficiency compressor may run faster and longer
than your old refrigerator and you may hear a high-pitched hum
or pulsating sound while it is operating.
„ You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors close. This is
due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.
„ After dispensing ice, a motor will close the ice chute to keep
warn room air from entering the ice bucket, maintaining ice at a
freezing temperature.
The hum of the motor closing the ice chute is normal, shortly after
dispensing ice.
„ You may hear the fans spinning at high speeds. This happens
when the refrigerator is first plugged in, when the doors are
opened frequently or when a large amount of food is added to
the refrigerator or freezer compartments. The fans are helping to
maintain the correct temperatures.
„ The fans change speeds in order to provide optimal cooling and
energy savings.
CLICKS, POPS,
CRACKS and SNAPS
WATER SOUNDS
„ You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator
is first plugged in. This happens as the refrigerator cools to the
correct temperature.
„ Expansion and contraction of cooling coils during and after
defrost can cause a cracking or popping sound.
„ On models with an ice maker, after an ice making cycle, you may
hear the ice cubes dropping into the ice bucket.
„ On models with a dispenser, during water dispense, you may
hear the water lines move at initial dispense and after dispenser
button is released.
„ The flow of refrigerant through the cooling coils may make a
gurgling noise like boiling water.
„ Water dropping on the defrost heater can cause a sizzling,
popping or buzzing sound during the defrost cycle.
„ A water dripping noise may occur during the defrost cycle as ice
melts from the evaporator and flows into the drain pan.
„ Closing the door may cause a gurgling sound due to pressure
equalization.
START UP COOLING
It can take up to 24 hours for the refrigerator and freezer
temperatures to match the display. During that time refrigerator and
freezer door openings should be minimized.
TIPS
„ Freezer cools first.
„ Refrigerator compartment cools last; it may take several
hours after the freezer.
„ Turning off ice maker makes both fresh food and freezer
food cool faster.

Truth or Myth
Truth or Myth?
Answer
Explanation
The refrigerator water filter may require replacement, TRUE
even though the filter indicator has not turned red, or
reads “Filter Expired.”
The water filter indicator will indicate the need to replace the water filter
every six months. Water quality varies from city to city; if water flow from
the dispenser slows, or ice production decreases, the water filter should
be replaced, even though the filter indicator may not indicate the need for
replacement.
The automatic ice maker in my refrigerator will
produce ice when the refrigerator is plugged in to a
power receptacle.
MYTH
The refrigerator must be connected to water, and the ice maker must be
turned on. Make sure the ice maker is turned on, only after the water line
is connected and water is turned on. The ice maker can be turned on/
off from the controls and ensure the ice maker is on, as indicated on the
refrigerator control panel. See About the Automatic Ice Maker.
After the refrigerator has been plugged in and
connected to water, I will immediately have unlimited
chilled water available from the water dispenser.
MYTH
The water dispenser tank located inside the refrigerator stores water
for dispensing. The water in this tank requires 24 hours to chill after
installation. High usage conditions will not allow time for the water to
chill.
After water dispenses, a few drops of water are
normal.
TRUE
A few drops of water may fall from the dispenser, after the dispenser
paddle has been released. To minimize the drops, remove the glass
slowly from the dispenser.
I will never see frost inside the freezer compartment.
MYTH
Frost inside the freezer typically indicates that the door is not properly
sealed, or has been left open. If frost is found, clear the frost using a
plastic spatula and towel, then check to ensure that no food packages
or containers are preventing the freezer door from closing. Check the
refrigerator control panel to ensure the door alarm is on.
When the refrigerator is installed, or after replacing the water filter, I must dispense water for five
minutes.
TRUE
A newly installed refrigerator or water filter contains air in the water lines.
Press the dispenser paddle and dispense cold water for at least 5 minutes
to remove air from the water line, and flush the filter.
To fill the ice bucket to the maximum capacity, I
should dispense 12 and 18 hours after installation.
TRUE
Dispensing 3-4 cubes 12 hours and 18 hours after installation, allows ice
to disperse within the ice bucket, which in turns calls on the ice maker to
produce additional ice. Normal ice production = 100 cubes in 24 hours.
I can use the water filter bypass plug to determine if
the filter requires replacement.
TRUE
Decrease in flow from the water dispenser, or decreased ice production,
may indicate the need to replace the water filter. Install the water filter
bypass plug (provided with the refrigerator), and check flow from the
dispenser. If water flow returns to normal with the bypass plug in place,
replace the water filter.
The top of the refrigerator doors will always be
aligned.
MYTH
Several things can affect the fresh food door alignment, including the
floor the refrigerator is installed on and loading of doors. If the top of
the fresh food doors are not aligned, use a 1/4” allen wrench to adjust
the right/left hand door. The adjustment screw is located on the bottom
right or left hand side of the door; open the freezer door to access the
screw. On some models, the left hand fresh food door may be raised using
spacers. Call 800-GECARES to obtain the spacers.
Refrigerator door handles can be easily tightened.
TRUE
If door handles are loose or have a gap, the handle can be adjusted using
a 1/8” allen wrench, on set screws located on the ends of the handles.
There may be odor and taste problems with your ice.
TRUE
After starting the ice maker throw away 24 hours of ice production to
avoid odor and taste problems.
I can make fine adjustments to the fresh food doors
to align them.
TRUE
If the fresh food doors are not aligned, use a 1/4” Allen wrench to adjust
the right hand door. The adjustment screw is located on the bottom of the
right door. Open the freezer door to access. The left hand fresh food door
may be raised using spacers. Call 800-GECARES to obtain the spacers.
Door handles should always be removed for
installation.
MYTH
Check chart on reverse side of this instruction. If the doors must be
removed do not remove the handles, or if the refrigerator will fit easily
through the passage way opening. Adjust handles that are loose or have
a gap, by adjusting 1/8” set screws on either end of handles.

Truth or Myth (cont.)
Truth or Myth?
Answer
Explanation
Door removal is always required for installation.
MYTH
Check chart on reverse side of this instruction. Doors should only be
removed when necessary to prevent damage from passage way or
access to final location.
Refrigerator doors that won’t close after installation,
can be adjusted to close properly.
TRUE
Door mechanism works best if installed at 90°+. If installed at 180°,
remove the door from the mid hinge, and swing the door 180° before
reinstalling. See Reinstalling the Refrigerator Doors.
There is an adjustment to rear wheels.
MYTH
Front leveling legs are adjustable and should be used to balance the
refrigerator. Leveling legs are used to make initial fresh food door
adjustment.
Check for leaks after all water connections are made.
TRUE
While purging the air from the water system, check all water line
connections for leaks. Check the connection to the household water
supply at back of refrigerator, and door water line connect.
My LCD display will always be on when I plug the
power cord in at installation.
MYTH
If the refrigerator has been stored in a cold environment, the LCD may be
slow to give a proper display. Give the refrigerator enough time to warm
up, and the display should be okay.
Any packaging residue can be cleaned off the
refrigerator using any cleaner.
MYTH
Do not use wax, polish, bleach, or other products containing chlorine on
Stainless Steel panels, door handles and trim. Check this instruction under
“Cleaning the Outside” for full details.

AVERTISSEMENT
IMPORTANTES CONSIGNES DE SÉCURITÉ
Pour réduire le risque d’incendie, d’explosion, de choc électrique ou de blessures
lorsque vous utilisez votre réfrigérateur, veuillez suivre ces consignes de sécurité :
le réfrigérateur pour couper l’alimentation.
„ Ce réfrigérateur doit être correctement installé
conformément aux Consignes d’Installation avant toute
utilisation.
„ Ne laissez pas les enfants grimper, se mettre debout ou
se suspendre aux poignées de portes dans le réfrigérateur
ou aux clayettes du réfrigérateur. Ils pourraient se blesser
gravement.
„ Si votre réfrigérateur est doté d’une machine à glaçons
automatique, évitez le contact avec les pièces mobiles du
mécanisme éjecteur, ou avec l’élément chauffant qui libère
les glaçons. Ne posez pas les doigts ou les mains sur le
mécanisme de la machine à glaçons automatique pendant
que le réfrigérateur est branché.
„ Ne nettoyez pas les clayettes ou les couvercles en verre
avec de l’eau tiède quand ceux-ci sont froids. Les clayettes
et couvercles en verre peuvent se casser s’ils sont exposés
à des changements soudains de température ou si vous les
cognez ou les faites tomber. Le verre trempé est conçu pour
se briser en petits morceaux en cas de casse.
„ Éloignez les doigts des parties du réfrigérateur où l’on peut
facilement se pincer : les espaces entre les portes, et entre
les portes et les placards sont toujours étroits. Soyez prudent
lorsque vous fermez les portes du réfrigérateur en présence
d’enfants.
„ Ne touchez pas les surfaces froides du congélateur lorsque
vous avez les mains humides ou mouillées. La peau risque
d’adhérer à ces surfaces extrêmement froides.
„ Ne recongelez pas les aliments surgelés qui ont
complètement dégelé.
„ Utilisez un verre résistant pour prendre des glaçons (sur les
modèles avec distributeur de glaçons).
„ Débranchez le réfrigérateur avant tout entretien ou
réparation.
„ REMARQUE : Les réparations doivent être effectuées par un
professionnel qualifié.
„ Remettez toutes les pièces et panneaux en place avant
d’utiliser l’appareil.
„ Nous déconseillons fortement l’utilisation d’une rallonge
à cause des risques potentiels dans certaines conditions.
Cependant, si l’utilisation d’un cordon prolongateur est
nécessaire, ce dernier doit obligatoirement être homologué
UL (aux USA) ou CSA (au Canada), à trois brins avec mise à la
terre pour appareil électroménager et doit être équipé d’une
fiche et d’une prise femelle avec terre. Les caractéristiques
électriques du cordon prolongateur doivent être de 15
ampères (minimum) et de 120 volts.
„ Pour éviter les risques d’asphyxie et d’enfermement pour
les enfants. Démontez les portes du congélateur et du
compartiment de réfrigération avant de le mettre au rebut
ou d’interrompre son utilisation.
„ Ne stockez pas ou n’utilisez pas d’essence ou d’autres
vapeurs et liquides inflammables à proximité de cet appareil
ou de tout autre appareil électroménager.
„ L’alimentation électrique du réfrigérateur ne peut
pas être coupée par l’intermédiaire du panneau de
commande. Pour ce faire, il est nécessaire de débrancher

SÉCURITÉ (SUITE)
INSTALLATION
Risque d’explosion.
Conservez les matériaux et vapeurs inflammables tels que l’essence à l’écart de votre réfrigérateur.
Une explosion, un incendie voire la mort pourrait en résulter.
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de basculement
Les modèles encastrés (modèles PYE, CYE et PWE) sont plus lourds au niveau de leur partie supérieure,
surtout avec les portes ouvertes. Ces modèles doivent être fixés à l’aide du système anti-basculement par
fixation au sol pour éviter que l’appareil ne bascule vers l’avant, ce qui pourrait entraîner des blessures
graves, voire mortelles. Lisez et suivez les instructions d’installation complètes pour l’installation du système
anti-basculement par fixation au sol livré avec votre réfrigérateur.
AVERTISSEMENT
BRANCHEMENTS ÉLECTRIQUES
Risque de choc électrique.
Branchez l’appareil dans une prise triple avec terre.
Ne retirez pas la broche de terre.
N’utilisez pas d’adaptateur.
Le non-respect de ces instructions peut entraîner des risques d’incendies, des chocs électriques ou la mort.
AVERTISSEMENT
Ne coupez pas ou n’enlevez pas, sous aucun prétexte, la troisième broche de mise à la terre du
cordon d’alimentation. Pour des raisons de sécurité, cet appareil doit être correctement mis à la
terre.
Le cordon d’alimentation de cet appareil est équipé d’une
fiche à trois broches (pour une mise à la terre) qui s’adapte à
la prise de courant standard à 3 broches (pour une mise à la
terre) pour minimiser les risques de chocs électriques par cet
appareil.
Une alimentation électrique à 115 volts CA, 60 Hz, avec
un fusible de 15 ou 20 ampères et une mise à la terre est
nécessaire. Ceci permet d’obtenir un meilleur rendement et
évite de surcharger les circuits électriques du domicile qui
risque d’occasionner un incendie en surchauffant.
Faites vérifier la prise murale et le circuit électrique par
un électricien qualifié pour s’assurer que le système est
correctement mis à la terre.
Ne débranchez jamais le réfrigérateur en tirant sur le cordon
d’alimentation. Prenez toujours fermement la fiche en main
et tirez pour la sortir de la prise.
Dans le cas d’une prise biphasée, l’installateur a la
responsabilité et l’obligation de la remplacer par une
prise triphasée correctement mise à la terre. N’utilisez pas
d’adaptateur.
Réparez ou remplacez immédiatement tout cordon
électrique usé ou endommagé. N’utilisez pas un cordon
fissuré ou présentant des dommages dus aux frottements
soit sur sa longueur ou aux extrémités.
Le réfrigérateur doit toujours être branché à sa propre prise
électrique d’une tension nominale correspondant à celle
indiquée sur sa plaque signalétique.
Lorsque vous éloignez votre réfrigérateur du mur, faites
attention à ne pas le faire rouler sur le cordon d’alimentation
afin de ne pas l’endommager.

SÉCURITÉ (SUITE)
DISTRIBUTEUR D’EAU CHAUDE
Risque de brûlures.
Le distributeur d’eau chaude peut chauffer l’eau à une température d’environ 185°F (85°C). Une eau
à une température supérieure à 125°F (52°C) peut provoquer de graves brûlures pouvant entraîner la
mort. Les enfants, les personnes handicapées et âgées sont plus à risque de se brûler.
AVERTISSEMENT
N’utilisez cet appareil qu’aux fins prévues décrites dans le manuel d’utilisation. Pour réduire le risque de brûlures graves,
d’échaudures, voire la mort lors de l’utilisation de votre distributeur d’eau chaude, veuillez suivre les instructions suivantes :
chaude. Ne versez pas d’eau chaude dans une tasse posée
sur la grille du distributeur, les projections d’eau seront plus
importantes.
„ N’utilisez pas une eau qui est microbiologiquement insalubre
ou de qualité inconnue.
„ Le distributeur d’eau chaude est conçu pour distribuer
uniquement de l’eau. N’essayez pas de réchauffer ou de
verser un autre liquide que de l’eau. Ne tentez pas de
démonter ou de nettoyer le réservoir.
„ Une cartouche de filtre à eau nouvellement installée peut
provoquer des éclaboussures en sortie du distributeur. Faites
passer 2 gallons (environ 7,5 litres) d’eau dans le distributeur
d’eau froide (environ 5 minutes) pour éliminer l’air du
système. Tant que l’air dans le système n’a pas été purgé
par le distributeur d’eau froide, N’utilisez PAS le distributeur
d’eau chaude. L’air dans le circuit pourrait provoquer des
éclaboussures d’eau chaude et donc causer des brûlures.
„ Le réservoir de distribution d’eau chaude est un réservoir
non pressurisé équipé d’un évent et d’un distributeur. Ne
modifiez pas le système, ne fermez pas ou ne bloquez
pas le tuyau de distribution ou ne connectez aucun autre
type de dispositif au réservoir ou au tuyau de distribution.
Cela pourrait conduire à une rupture de la cuve et l’eau
bouillante.
„ L’eau délivrée par le distributeur est très chaude. Soyez
extrêmement prudent lors de la distribution et de la
consommation de cette eau. Laissez l’eau refroidir à une
température adaptée à la consommation avant de la boire.
„ Lorsque vous prenez de l’eau en dessous de 125°F, vérifiez
toujours la température de l’eau avant de la boire.
„ Lors de la distribution d’eau chaude, le récipient peut devenir
très chaud. Utiliser un récipient calorifuge, par exemple
en céramique ou en polystyrène. Dans le cas contraire,
l’utilisation de matériaux tels que le papier ou le plastique
peut provoquer des brûlures lorsque vous tenez la tasse.
N’utilisez pas de récipients en verre. Par un choc thermique,
le pourrait se casser et entraîner des brûlures ou des
lacérations.
„ Ne laissez pas les enfants utiliser le distributeur d’eau chaude.
„ Il est nécessaire de faire pivoter et d’enfoncer le bouton de
distribution d’eau chaude. Ces deux mouvements réduisent
les risques de faire couler l’eau chaude involontairement ou
de permettre à de jeunes enfants de se servir. Ne pas altérer
ou modifier le bouton de distribution d’eau chaude.
„ Veuillez toujours suivre les instructions du fabricant pour la
préparation du lait maternisé.
„ Tenez votre tasse ou votre récipient à côté de la sortie d’eau
chaude pour éviter d’éclabousser votre main avec l’eau
MISE AU REBUT APPROPRIÉE DE VOTRE ANCIEN RÉFRIGÉRATEUR
Un enfant risque de suffoquer ou d’y être emprisonné.
Démontez les portes du compartiment de réfrigération et du compartiment de congélation du
réfrigérateur, avant mettre celui-ci au rebut. Le non-respect de cette recommandation peut entraîner
l’enfermement d’un enfant qui peut entraîner la mort ou des lésions cérébrales.

A propos du distributeur.
Distributeur d’eau et de glace
(Consulter la section sur les paramètres de température et les fonctions
de contrôle)
Grille du
distributeur
Si l’eau n’est pas distribuée lorsque le réfrigérateur vient d’être
installé, il y a peut-être de l’air dans le conduit d’eau. Appuyez
sur le bras du distributeur pendant au moins cinq minutes pour
purger l’air contenu dans le conduit d’alimentation en eau et
ainsi remplir ce dernier d’eau. Afin d’éliminer les impuretés du
système, jetez les six premiers verres d’eau.
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de lacération
„ N’introduisez jamais les doigts ou tout autre objet dans
l’ouverture de sortie du broyeur de glace. Vous risqueriez
de toucher les lames du broyeur de glace et entraîner des
blessures graves, voire une amputation.
„ Utilisez un verre robuste lorsque vous prenez les glaçons. Un
verre fragile pourrait se casser et occasionner une blessure.
Pour retirer la grille du distributeur
„ Tirez la grille du distributeur vers vous jusqu’à la butée.
„ Localisez la languette centrale sur le fond de la grille et
appuyez.
„ Tirez l’ensemble de la grille du distributeur vers vous..
„ Soulevez la grille métallique du distributeur de métal par
l’encoche centrale pour la nettoyer.
Pour remettre la grille du distributeur
„ Placez le couvercle de la grille du distributeur sur le dessus de
la clayette de récupération et placez-le sous les deux pattes
en plastique de chaque côté.
„ Centrez la grille du distributeur et alignez-la à l’aide des guides
centraux.
„ Poussez jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit bien en place.
Informations importantes concernant votre distributeur
„ N’ajoutez pas de glaçons provenant des bacs ou de sac à
glaçons au seau de la machine à glaçons de la porte. Ils
peuvent être difficile à piler ou à distribuer.
„ Évitez de trop remplir les verres de glaçons et d’utiliser des
verres étroits. La glace accumulée peut bloquer le conduit ou
peut geler le volet en position fermée. Si des glaçons bloquent
le conduit, retirer le seau à glace et faites-les passer à l’aide
d’une cuillère en bois.
„ Ne placez pas de boisson ou d’aliment dans le bac de
la machine à glaçons pour les refroidir rapidement. Les
canettes, bouteilles et paquets alimentaires peuvent bloquer
la machine à glaçons ou la vis sans fin.
„ Pour éviter que la glace distribuée ne manque le verre, placez
ce dernier à proximité de l’ouverture du distributeur, mais
sans la toucher.
„ Il est possible que de la glace pilée soit distribuée
même si vous avez choisi CUBED ICE (glaçons). Cela se
produit de temps à autre lorsque plusieurs glaçons sont
accidentellement acheminés vers le broyeur.
„ Après distribution de glace pilée, de l’eau peut s’écouler du
conduit.
„ Parfois, un peu de givre se forme sur le volet du conduit à glace.
Ce phénomène est normal et se produit en général après des
distributions répétées de glace pilée. Le givre va éventuellement
s’évaporer.

Water Filter Cartridge
The water filter cartridge is located in one of the following places:
Bottom-freezer (BF) refrigerators:
- In the water filter compartment on the right side wall of the
left-hand fresh food door.
- In the fresh food interior on the left side wall, near the top.
2. While continuing to ensure cartridge
is fully seated in the holder, gently
swing the filter inward until it is in a
vertical position. If filter will not swing
easily, check to ensure filter is properly
aligned and fully seated within the
cartridge holder.
3. Run 2 gallons of water through the cold
water dispenser (about 5 minutes) to
remove air from the system. A newly
installed filter cartridge will cause
water to spurt from the dispenser. Use
a large pitcher or sports bottle to catch
the water spray. DO NOT use the hot
water dispenser or hands-free auto-fill
(some models) until all air is removed
from the system.
When to replace the filter cartridge
The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or earlier
if the flow of water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases.
