NEVER use these items to play. Cartons covered
with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch
wrap may become airtight chambers, and can
quickly cause suffocation.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Proper Disposal of your
Refrigerator or 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.
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
doors.
• Leave shelves
in place so
children may
not easily
climb inside.
• Have
refrigerant
removed by
a qualified
service technician.
IMPORTANT
CFC/HCFC Disposal
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system
that used CFCs or HCFCs (chlorofluorocarbons
or hydrochlorofluorocarbons). CFCs and HCFCs
are believed to harm stratospheric ozone if
released to the atmosphere. Other refrigerants
may also cause harm to the environment if
released to the atmosphere.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator,
make sure the refrigerant is removed for
proper disposal by a qualified technician. If
you intentionally release refrigerant, you may
be subject to fines and imprisonment under
provisions of environmental legislation.
Electrical information
• The refrigerator must be plugged into its
own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp, AC
only electrical 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.
Avoid connecting refrigerator to a Ground
Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit. Do not use an
extension cord or adapter plug.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should be
replaced by an authorized service technician 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 light bulb 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 electrical outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to
prevent the refrigerator from being turned off
accidentally.
IMPORTANT
Pressing and holding the On/Off button for
three seconds, located on the temperature
control panel, will disable your refrigerator’s
cooling system but does not disconnect the
power to the light bulb and other electrical
components. To turn off power to your
refrigerator you must unplug the power cord
from the electrical outlet.

This Use & Care Guide provides general
installation and operating instructions for your
model. We recommend using a service or kitchen
contracting professional to install your refrigerator.
Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this Use
& Care Guide. Before starting the refrigerator,
follow these important first steps.
Location
• Choose a place that is near a grounded,
non-GFCI, electrical outlet. Do Not use an
extension cord or an adapter plug.
• If possible, place the 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.

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.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning water
softener can damage the ice maker. If your
home has a water softening system, ensure
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 (6.4 mm)
OD, copper or stainless steel tubing. To
determine the length of tubing needed,
measure the distance from the ice maker
inlet valve at the back of the 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).
16
• 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 re-use 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, Frigidaire 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, Frigidaire
recommends its Smart Choice® water line kit
5305510264 (with a 20 ft. Copper Water Line
with self-tapping saddle valve). Please refer to
www.frigidaire.com/store for more information.

only), about 2½ turns, behind refrigerator
as shown and arrange coils so they do not
vibrate or wear against any other surface. Do
not kink tubing.
7 Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and
tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER
Priming the water supply system
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation, recommended
water supply pressure should fall between
30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may
cause the system to malfunction.
1 Begin filling the system 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.
3Continue
dispensing water
for about four
minutes to flush
the system and
plumbing connections of any impurities
(stopping to empty the glass as necessary).

NOTE
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.

NOTE
Dispensed water is chilled. For colder water, add
ice to cup or container before dispensing water.
Ice maker operation & care
After the refrigerator is installed properly and
has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can
produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill
the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some
ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will
allow the bin to fill completely.
Ice Maker and Storage Bin Capacity
This ice maker should produce 2.5 to 3 pounds of
ice per 24 hours.
In a Standard Depth model, the ice bin will hold
about 6.5 pounds of ice. In a Counter Depth
model, the ice bin will hold about 4 pounds of ice.
Turning the fresh food ice maker
on and off
Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s
On/Off icon on the control panel. Touch the
“options” button to access the Options Menu on
the control panel. Use "∨” or "∧” to select the ice
maker. Then use “+” or “-” to select ON or OFF.
Touch “set” to activate your choice.
IMPORTANT
Turning off the ice maker simply disables ice
making. You will still be able to dispense existing
ice, and you will still be able to dispense water.

NOTE
The ice maker also has a built-in plastic signal
arm that automatically stops ice production
when the ice bin is full. This signal arm should
not be used to manually stop the ice maker.
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, set the
ice maker’s On/Off icon to Off; otherwise, the
ice maker’s fill valve may make a loud chattering
noise when it attempts to operate without water.
IMPORTANT
On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may
be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice.
This could occur in normal operation of the
ice maker. If you start seeing these more
frequently, it may be an indication of low
water pressure or the water filter needs to be
replaced. 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. Remember, if 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.

STORING FOOD AND 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.
• Wash items and remove excess water.
• Wrap any items that have strong odors or high
moisture content.
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry separately and
securely to prevent leaks and contamination of
other foods or surfaces.
• Use the deli drawer to store meat/poultry
for short-term 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 offflavor (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
• Prior to grocery shopping, activate “quick
freeze” so that on your return you can ensure
your newly purchased food designated for
the freezer will be preserved as quickly as
possible.
• Activating “quick freeze” also will help your
freezer more efficiently maintain the selected
temperature after placing new purchases with
pre-existing frozen foods.
• 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.
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 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 that the doors close
tightly.
Temperature settings
• Refer to the “Controls” section 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.
• Do not place a hot container directly on
a cold shelf. Remember, such an extreme
temperature change may damage the glass.

NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS AND SIGHTS
Understanding the sounds you may
hear
Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may
introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds
normally indicate your refrigerator is operating
correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and
kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more
noticeable.
The following is a list of major components in your
refrigerator and the sounds they can cause:
A Evaporator Refrigerant through the
evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling
sound.
B Evaporator fan You may hear air being
forced through the refrigerator by the
evaporator fan.
C Defrost heater During defrost cycles, water
dripping onto the defrost heater may cause a
hissing or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a
popping sound may occur.
D Automatic ice maker When ice has been
produced, you will hear ice cubes falling
into the ice bin. Ice maker fan, water valve
activation, and refrigerant gas fluid may
create sounds from its operation.
E Electronic control & automatic defrost
control These parts can produce a snapping
or clicking sound when turning the cooling
system on and off.
F Condenser fan You may hear air being
forced through the condenser.
G Compressor Modern, high-efficiency
compressors run much faster than older
models. The compressor may have a highpitched hum or pulsating sound.
H Water valve Makes a buzzing sound each
time it opens to fill the ice maker.
I Drain 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.
L Ice dispensing paddle When dispensing
ice, you will hear a snapping, clicking, or
popping sound when the solenoid opens and
closes the ice chute.
M Motorized damper May produce a light
humming during operation.
