Important Safety
Instructions
Proper Disposal of
Your Refrigerator/Freezer
Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are
not problems of the past. Junked or
abandoned refrigerators or freezers are
still dangerous — even if they will sit for
"just a few days." If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator or freezer, please
follow the instructions below to help
prevent accidents.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR
OLD REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER:
• Remove
doors.
• Leave
shelves in
place so
children
may not
easily climb
inside.
Avoid fire hazard or
electric shock. Do not use an extension
cord or an adapter plug. Do not remove
any prong from the power cord.
Record the Model Number and Serial Number of this refrigerator in the space
provided below. These numbers are found on the serial plate located on the top left
wall of the refrigerator compartment.
Model Number:
Serial Number:
Register Your Product
The self-addressed PRODUCT REGISTRATION CARD should be filled in completely,
signed and returned to Electrolux Home Products.
Read all instructions before using this refrigerator.
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
Child Safety
• Destroy carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately
after the refrigerator is unpacked. Children should never use these items for play.
Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may
become airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation.
• Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause severe cuts and destroy
finishes if they come in contact with other appliances or furniture.
• An empty, discarded ice box, refrigerator or freezer is a very dangerous attraction
to children. Remove the door of any appliance that is not in use, even if
it is being discarded.
Electrical Information
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that safety mechanisms in the
design of this refrigerator will operate properly.
• The refrigerator must be plugged into its own 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only
electrical outlet. The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a 3-prong
grounding plug for your protection against shock hazards. It must be plugged
directly into a properly grounded 3-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 an adapter plug.
• If voltage varies by 10 percent or more, performance of your refrigerator may be
affected. Operating the refrigerator with insufficient power can damage the
compressor. Such damage is not covered under your warranty. If you suspect your
voltage is high or low, consult your power company for testing.
• To prevent the refrigerator from being turned off accidentally, do not plug the unit
into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord.
• Do not pinch, knot, or bend the power cord in any manner.
Other Precautions
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug
firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
• To avoid electrical shock, unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb. NOTE: Turning the control to OFF turns off the compressor, but
does not disconnect power to the light bulb or other electrical components.
• Do not operate the refrigerator in the presence of explosive fumes.
• If the refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, avoid contact with any moving parts.

First Steps
Before starting the refrigerator, follow these important first steps:
Location
3" AIR SPACE
•
•
•
•
Choose a place that is near a grounded electrical outlet. DO NOT use an extension
cord or an adapter plug.
If possible, place the refrigerator out of direct sunlight and away from the
range, dishwasher or other heat sources.
The refrigerator must be installed on a floor that is level and strong enough
to support a fully loaded refrigerator.
Consider water supply availability for models equipped with an automatic ice
maker.
1"
Installation
•
1/2"
•
1/2"
1"
Clearance
Proper air circulation and leveling will
ensure efficient operation.
•
•
Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will drop below 60°F
(15°C) or rise above 110°F (43°C). The compressor will not be able to maintain
proper temperatures.
Allow space around the unit for good air circulation. Leave a 1 inch (25 mm) space
behind and a 3 inch (75 mm) space above the refrigerator for adequate
circulation.
In a recessed installation, allow an extra 1/2 inch (10-15 mm) on each side
for ease of installation.
For best circulation, elevate the unit 1 inch (25 mm) from the floor, especially if
the floor is carpeted.
Door Opening
The doors should open to allow easy access to a counter when removing food.
• Do not position the refrigerator so you have to walk around the refrigerator
doors.
• Reverse the doors if necessary. See "Door Reversal Instructions."
Leveling
All four corners of refrigerator must rest firmly on a solid floor. Some models
are equipped with adjustable screw-type levelers. Others are equipped with rollers.
If your refrigerator did not come with rollers, they can be purchased from your dealer.
Remove toe grille (some models). See Toe Grille Instructions on page 13.
•
Exposed bolt (some models)
To adjust screw-type levelers (some models): Tip cabinet back slightly and
raise adjusting bolts as needed.
• To adjust front rollers (some models): Use a screwdriver, 3/8" socket
wrench, or nutdriver to adjust rollers as shown.
Raise the front of cabinet enough so doors will close freely when opened halfway.
Level cabinet side to side.
Cleaning
•
•
Sunken bolt (some models)
•
Wash the inside, all removable parts and the outside with mild detergent and
warm water. Wipe dry. Do not use harsh cleaners on these surfaces.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments, which can scratch the
appliance surface, when removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from the
tape or energy label can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent, or, touch the glue with the sticky side of tape already removed.
Do not remove the serial plate.

Connecting Ice Maker
to Water Supply
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.
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper tubing is recommended for the water supply line. Water supply tubing made of 1/4” plastic is not recommended since it
greatly increases the potential for water leaks. Manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is used for
supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.
• Connect the ice maker to a potable water source that is not tied into a water softening system. Chemicals from the softener may
damage the ice maker, causing it to malfunction.
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 and standard, flat blade screwdriver.
• Access to a household cold water line with water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6.4 mm) OD, copper tubing. To determine the length of copper tubing needed, you
will need to 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. See Figure 1.
• 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 the water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve.
NOTE: Water line kit number 5303917950, available from your appliance dealer at additional cost, contains 25 feet (7.6
meters) of ¼” OD copper tubing, a saddle type shutoff valve (nonpiercing), (2) ¼” brass compression nuts, (2) ferrules/sleeves,
and instructions for installing a water supply line.
To Connect Water Supply Line To Ice Maker Inlet Valve
1. Disconnect refrigerator from electric power supply.
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. Unscrew plastic cap from water valve inlet (some models) and discard cap.
4. Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve), onto water supply line,
as shown in Figure 2.
5. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (¼ inch). Slide
Figure 1
ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto
valve.Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
Figure 2
6. With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line to rear panel
of refrigerator at location shown in Figure 1.
7. Coil excess water supply line (about 2½ turns) behind refrigerator as
shown in Figure 1 and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear
against any other surface.
8. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections
that leak.
9. Reconnect refrigerator to electric power supply.
10.To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal arm. (See ice maker front
cover for on/off position of arm.)
It takes approximately 24 hours for the ice maker to begin producing
ice. Air in new plumbing lines may cause ice maker to cycle two or three times before making a full tray of ice. New
plumbing may cause ice to be discolored or have poor flavor. Discard ice made during the first 24 hours.

Energy Saving Ideas
• 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. 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 the doors close tightly.
• Refer to this Owner's Guide for the suggested refrigerator settings.
• Periodic cleaning of the condenser will help the refrigerator run more efficiently.
See Outside in the "Care and Cleaning" section.
• Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air vents. Doing so causes the
refrigerator to run longer and use more energy. Shelves should not be lined with
aluminum foil, wax paper or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold air
circulation, making the refrigerator less efficient, which could cause food
spoilage.
• 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.
Setting the Controls
Cool Down Period
To ensure safe food storage, allow the refrigerator to operate with the doors
closed for at least 8 to 12 hours before loading with food.
Refrigerator and Freezer Controls
•
To start out, set control dials to the midpoint for a trial period of 24 hours.
Temperatures
•
After 24 hours, adjust the controls as needed. Adjust temperatures one
number at a time. For colder temperatures, turn the dial toward COLDEST.
For warmer temperatures, turn the dial toward COLD. The temperature will
increase or decrease, but not necessarily by 1, 2, or 3 degrees.
Refrigerator Control
An adjustment made to one compartment may require an adjustment to the
other.
• Turning the refrigerator control will change the temperature in BOTH
compartments. If the refrigerator control is turned to OFF, cooling stops
in both compartments.
• Turning the freezer control will change only the temperature in the
freezer compartment.
G05C0061
Freezer Control
To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments. For good circulation, do not block cold air vents with food items.
Moisture Reduction Switch (some models)
If moisture forms on the metal between the two doors, set the Moisture
Reduction Switch (located on the control box in the refrigerator compartment) to
the “ON” position. A heater will warm the surface and allow moisture to evaporate.

Remove Shipping Clips wall support. Then lock hooks at rear into wall bracket.
NOTE: Plastic clip will automatically fit secure against side
wall.
Cantilever Shelf
Spillsafe™ glass shelves (some models) catch and hold accidental spills. In some
models, the Spillsafe™ shelves slide out for easy access to food and fast cleaning. The
shelves slide out independently of the cantilever brackets. Just pull front of shelf
forward. Shelf can be extended as far as stopper will allow and is not removable from
the cantilever bracket.
Door Storage
Door bins and shelves are provided for convenient storage of jars, bottles, and cans.
Items used often are available for quick selection.
Some models have adjustable door bins which can be moved to suit individual needs.
To move the bins, remove by lifting straight up. Place the bin in the desired position
and lower over supports.
G05I0134 Cantilever/Sliding Shelf with

Plastic Clip
The Dairy Compartment is warmer than the general food storage section and is
intended for short term storage of cheese, spreads, or butter.
Micro-Serve Dishes (some models)
Food can be stored, cooked*, and served in Micro-Serve Dishes provided in some
models. These dishes slide easily into their own tray, which hangs below a door gallon
bin, conveniently freeing shelf space for other items. See illustration.
* Remove plastic lid before cooking. Lid is intended for storage only.
Crispers
Bin
The crispers, located under the bottom refrigerator shelf, are designed for storing
fruits, vegetables, and other fresh produce. Wash items in clear water and remove
excess water before placing in the crispers. Items with strong odors or high moisture
should be wrapped before storing. In some models, the crispers are drawers, in others,
they are tilt-out bins.

Adjustable Humidity Control
The Humidity Control (some models with Crisper drawers) allows you to adjust the
humidity within the Crisper. This can extend the life of fresh vegetables which keep
best in high humidity. Leafy vegetables, however, keep best when stored with the
Humidity Control set on HIGH, or in a drawer without a Humidity Control. This keeps
incoming air to a minimum and maintains maximum moisture content.
Crisper Cover Support (some models)
The Crisper Cover Support, located between the two
Crisper drawers, is shipped raised from the liner floor.
This prevents damage to the liner floor during shipping.
Once your refrigerator has been installed in it’s final
location, the Foot of the Crisper Cover Support must
be lowered to prevent bowing in the middle of the
Crisper Cover, when food is placed on it.
Adjusting the Foot of the Crisper Cover Support:
1. To lower the Foot, rotate it the clockwise direction
until it rests on the liner floor.
2. To raise the Foot, rotate it in the counterclockwise
direction.
Crisper Cover Support
Deli Drawer (some models)
Some models are equipped with a Deli Drawer for storage of luncheon meats,
spreads, cheeses, and other deli items.
Meat Pan (some models)
Chilled Air Control
Some models are equipped with a Meat Pan that can be positioned below any
refrigerator shelf. Use this pan for short term storage of bulk meat items. If meats are
to be kept longer than 1 or 2 days, they should be frozen.
Meat Keeper (some models)
The temperature in the Meat Keeper drawer can be made colder than the rest of the
refrigerator compartment by adjusting the Chilled Air Control. Meat will be partially
frozen, and may be kept fresh longer than if stored on a refrigerator shelf.
Before placing items in Meat Keeper, follow these steps to keep meat fresh.
1. Carefully handle meat with clean hands, and always keep compartment clean.
2. Store meat in its original wrapper. If necessary, overwrap in plastic wrap, or
foil to prevent drying. Wrap fish tightly to prevent odor transfer to other foods.
3. If spoilage ever occurs, disinfect the compartment with liquid chlorine bleach
following label directions. Then, rinse with a solution of baking soda, and water.
Rinse with clear water, and dry.
Adjusting the Chilled Air Duct
The Chilled Air Duct can also switch sides, should you wish to move the split
cantilever shelf. To change sides:
• Remove Meat Keeper drawer and shelf. Remove screw. Grasp air duct, push and
tip back to "unlock" it from the air outlet box.
• Move air duct to the other side, and push into place. Reinstall screw.
• Replace shelf and insert drawer.
Wine Rack (some models)
The wine rack stores bottles of wine, or single 2-liter plastic bottles of juice or
soda pop. To install, slide wine rack onto the shelf with the curve facing in.To
remove, slide wine rack out.Install on either side of a Spillsafe™ shelf.

Care and Cleaning
Damp objects stick to cold
metal surfaces. Do not touch
refrigerated surfaces with wet or damp
hands.
Keep your refrigerator and freezer clean to prevent odor build-up. Wipe up any spills
immediately and clean both sections 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 power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning. Turning
the control to OFF does not disconnect power to the controls, light bulb, or other
electrical components.
Inside
Wash inside surfaces of the refrigerator and freezer with a solution of 2 tablespoons
baking soda in 1 quart warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Be sure to wring
excess water out of sponge or cloth before cleaning around the controls, light
bulb, or any electrical parts.
Wash removable parts such as shelves and drawers with baking soda solution or mild
detergent and warm water. Do not use harsh cleaners on these surfaces. Rinse
and dry thoroughly. Clean the door gaskets with mild suds, rinse with clear water and
wipe dry. Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the
appliance surface when removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from the tape or
energy label can be removed with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent, or,
touch the residue with the sticky side of tape already removed. Do not remove the
serial plate.
Outside
Wash the cabinet and handles with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well
and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
When moving the refrigerator, pull straight out. Do not shift the refrigerator from side
to side as this may tear or gouge the floor covering. If the refrigerator has an automatic
ice maker, be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond plumbing connections.
To avoid damage and help
the refrigerator run as efficiently as
possible, clean the condenser
periodically.
Periodically clean the condenser (black tubes and wires on the back of the
refrigerator). Using a vacuum with its dusting tool attachment, vacuum the coils to
remove dust build-up. Do not allow lint or dust to accumulate on the coils.
The defrost water pan is located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator on top of the
compressor (shown left). The pan should be cleaned periodically. Wipe clean with a
damp cloth.
Replacing the Light Bulb
To replace the light bulb:
1. Unplug the refrigerator.
2. Wear gloves as protection against possible broken glass.
3. Replace old bulb with an appliance bulb of the same wattage.
4. Remember to plug the refrigerator back in.

Care and Cleaning
Vacation and Moving Tips
(continued)
Short vacations: Leave the refrigerator operating during vacations of 1 to 3 weeks.
Use up all perishable items from the refrigerator section. Wrap and store other items
in the freezer. If the unit has an automatic ice maker, turn off the ice maker.
Long vacations: Remove all food and ice if you will be gone 1 month or more. Turn
the control to OFF and disconnect the power. If the unit has an automatic ice maker,
turn off the ice maker and turn the water supply valve to the closed position. Defrost
and clean the interior thoroughly. Leave both doors open to prevent odor and mold
buildup. Block open if necessary.
Moving: When moving the refrigerator, follow these guidelines to prevent
damage:
• Remove all food and other items from refrigerator and freezer
compartments. Empty the ice storage bin. Defrost and clean the
interior thoroughly.
• If a hand truck is used in moving, load the refrigerator from the side.
• Turn front rollers as far up as possible (some models). This will protect them
during sliding or moving.
• The cabinet should be well padded and handled with care. Do not drop.
Automatic Ice Maker
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, it will provide a continuous supply of
ice for normal use. The automatic ice maker is an optional accessory which may be
installed in most models at any time. Call your local dealer for installation.
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. Because of new
plumbing connections, the first production of ice cubes may be discolored or have an
odd flavor. Throw the ice away until the cubes made are free of discoloration and
taste.
Remember, water quality determines your ice quality. It is best
to connect ice maker to water that is NOT soft. Softening chemicals can damage ice
maker. If ice maker is connected to soft water, make sure softener is maintained,
and working properly.
To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the "up"
or OFF position. The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container is full.
If your model has an adjustable freezer shelf, place the shelf so the wire signal arm
will hit the ice when the ice container is full.
Ice Maker Tips
1. Ice stored too long may develop an odd flavor. Empty the container and be sure
the wire signal arm is in its "down" or ON position. The ice maker will then
produce more ice.
2. Occasionally shake the container to keep ice separated.
3. Keep the wire signal arm in its "up" or OFF position until refrigerator is connected
to the water supply or whenever water supply is turned off.
4. Certain sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating. They are:
Motor operation
Ice being loosened from the tray
Ice being dropped into the container
Running water
Water valve opening and closing
For more information on these operations, see "Normal Operating Sounds."
5. Wash ice container in warm water with mild detergent. Rinse well and dry.
6. Stop the ice maker when cleaning the freezer or for short vacations.
7. If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period of time, turn the water supply
valve to the closed position.
