! CAUTION
To avoid risk of property damage, do not use
refrigerant other than that shown on unit serial
number identification plate.
NOTE: All precautionary measures recommended by
refrigerant manufacturers and suppliers apply
and should be observed.
Line Piercing Valves
Line piercing valves can be used for diagnosis, but are
not suitable for evacuating or charging due to holes
pierced in tubing by valves.

Service Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit, unless test
procedures require power to be connected. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting
to service. Ensure all ground wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Testing Systems Containing No Refrigerant Charge
1. Connect cylinder of nitrogen, through gauge
manifold, to process tube of compressor and liquid line
strainer.
Open Lines
During any processing of refrigeration system, never
leave lines open to atmosphere. Open lines allow water
vapor to enter system, making proper evacuation more
difficult.
2. Open valves on nitrogen cylinder and gauge manifold.
Allow pressure to build within sealed system.
3. Check for leaks using soap suds.
If a leak is detected in a joint, do not to attempt to repair
by applying additional brazing material. Joint must be
disassembled, cleaned and rebrazed. Capture refrigerant
charge (if system is charged), unbraze joint, clean
allparts, then rebraze.
Dehydrating Sealed Refrigeration System
Moisture in a refrigerator sealed system exposed to
heat generated by the compressor and motor reacts
chemically with refrigerant and oil in the system and
forms corrosive hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids.
These acids contribute to breakdown of motor winding
insulation and corrosion of compressor working parts,
causing compressor failure.
If leak is detected in tubing, replace tubing. If leak is
detected in either coil, replace faulty coil.
Restrictions
In addition, sludge, a residue of the chemical reaction,
coats all surfaces of sealed system, and will
eventually restrict refrigerant flow through capillary
tube.
Symptoms
Restrictions in sealed system most often occur at
capillary tube or filter drier, but can exist anywhere on
liquid side of system.
To dehydrate sealed system, evacuate system (see
paragraph Evacuation).
Restrictions reduce refrigerant flow rate and heat
removal rate. Wattage drops because compressor is
not circulating normal amount of refrigerants.
Leak Testing
!
Common causes of total restrictions are moisture,
poorly soldered joints, or solid contaminants. Moisture
freezes at evaporator inlet end of capillary tube. Solid
contaminants collect in filter drier.
DANGER
To avoid risk of serious injury or death from violent
explosions, NEVER use oxygen or acetylene for
pressure testing or clean out of refrigeration
systems. Free oxygen will explode on contact with
oil. Acetylene will explode spontaneously when put
under pressure.
If restriction is on low side, suction pressure will be in a
vacuum and head pressure will be near normal.
If restriction is on high side, suction pressure will be in
a vacuum and head pressure will be higher than normal
during pump out cycle.
Refrigeration occurs on low pressure side of partial
restriction. There will be a temperature difference at the
point of restriction. Frost and/or condensation will be
present in most case at the point of restriction. Also,
system requires longer to equalize.
It is important to check sealed system for refrigerant
leaks. Undetected leaks can lead to repeated service
calls and eventually result in system contamination,
restrictions, and premature compressor failure.
Refrigerant leaks are best detected with halide or
electronic leak detectors.
Slight or partial restriction can give the same
symptoms as refrigerant shortage including lower than
normal back pressure, head pressure, wattage, and
warmer temperatures.
Testing Systems Containing a Refrigerant Charge
1. Stop unit operation (turn refrigerator off).
Total restriction on the discharge side of compressor,
when restriction is between compressor and first half of
condenser, results in higher than normal head pressure
and wattage while low side is being pumped out.
2. Holding leak detector exploring tube as close to
system tubing as possible, check all piping, joints,
and fittings.
NOTE: Use soap suds on areas leak detector cannot
reach or reliably test.

Service Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit, unless test
procedures require power to be connected. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting
to service. Ensure all ground wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Testing for Restrictions
To determine if a restriction exists:
NOTE: Charge system with exact amount of refrigerant.
Refer to unit nameplate for correct refrigerant
charge. Inaccurately charged system will cause
future problems.
1. Attach gauge and manifold between suction and
discharge sides of sealed system.
2. Turn unit on and allow pressure on each side to
stabilize. Inspect condenser side of system. Tubing on
condenser should be warm and temperature should be
equal throughout (no sudden drops at any point along
tubing).
Evacuation and Charging
! CAUTION
To avoid risk of fire, sealed refrigeration system must
be air free. To avoid risk of air contamination, follow
evacuation procedures exactly.
• If temperature of condenser tubing is consistent
throughout, go to step 4.
• If temperature of condenser tubing drops suddenly at
any point, tubing is restricted at point of temperature
drop (if restriction is severe, frost may form at point
of restriction and extend down in direction of
refrigerant flow in system). Go to step 5.
NOTE: Before opening any refrigeration system, EPA
regulations require refrigerant in system to be
captured for safe disposal.
Proper evacuation of sealed refrigeration system is an
important service procedure. Usable life and operational
efficiency greatly depends upon how completely air,
moisture and other non-condensables are evacuated
from sealed system.
3. Visually check system for kinks in refrigeration line
which is causing restriction. Correct kink and repeat
step 2.
4. Turn unit off and time how long it takes high and low
pressure gauges to equalize:
Air in sealed system causes high condensing
temperature and pressure, resulting in increased power
requirements and reduced performance.
• If pressure equalization takes longer than 10
minutes, a restriction exists in the capillary tube or
drier filter. Go to step 5.
Moisture in sealed system chemically reacts with
refrigerant and oil to form corrosive hydrofluoric and
hydrochloric acids. These acids attack motor windings
and parts, causing premature breakdown.
• If pressure equalization takes less than 10 minutes,
system is not restricted. Check for other possible
causes of malfunction.
Before opening system, evaporator coil must be at
ambient temperature to minimize moisture infiltration
into system.
5. Recover refrigerant in sealed system.
NOTE: Before opening any refrigeration system, capture
refrigerant in system for safe disposal.
Evacuation
To evacuate sealed refrigeration system:
6. Remove power from unit.
1. Connect vacuum pump, vacuum tight manifold set with
high vacuum hoses, thermocouple vacuum gauge and
charging cylinder as shown in illustration.
! CAUTION
Evacuation should be done through I.D. opening of
tubes not through line piercing valve.
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage,
take necessary precautions against high
temperatures required for brazing.
2. Connect low side line to compressor process tube.
3. Connect high side line to drier/process tube.
7. Remove and replace restricted device.
4. Evacuate both simultaneously. With valve “C” and “F”
closed, open all other valves and start vacuum pump.
8. Evacuate sealed system.
9. Charge system to specification.
NOTE: Do not use captured or recycled refrigerant in
Maytag units. Captured or recycled refrigerant
voids any Maytag and/or compressor
manufacturer's warranty.

• Ester oil is used in HFC134a systems. Do not use
mineral oil. HFC134a and mineral oils cannot be mixed.
If mineral oils were used in HFC134a systems, lubricant
would not return to compressor and would cause early
compressor failure. If significant amount of oil has been
lost from compressor, replace oil rather than adding oil.
• Ester oils used in HFC134a systems are so
hydroscopic that by the time an inadequate system
performance is detected, oil will be saturated with
moisture.
• CFC12 has much higher tolerance to system
processing materials, such as drawing compounds, rust
inhibitors, and cleaning compounds, than HFC134a.
Such materials are not soluble in HFC134a systems. If
materials were to be washed from system surfaces by
ester oils, they could accumulate and eventually plug
capillary tube.
• Care must be taken to minimize moisture entering
HFC134a system. Do not leave compressor or system
open to atmosphere for more than 10 minutes.
Excessive moisture in HFC134a system will react with
compressor oil and generate acid.
• Compressor must be replaced when performing low side
leak repair.
• Drier filter must always be replaced.

Service Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit, unless test
procedures require power to be connected. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting
to service. Ensure all ground wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
• Refrigerator must operate minimum of 20 minutes after
thermocouples are installed.
• Turn control to colder to obtain required on time.
• Wattage reading must be recorded in conjunction with
temperature test to confirm proper operation.
• Suction and head pressures are listed on “Temperature
and Relationship Chart”. Normally these are not
required for diagnosis but used for confirmation on
systems which have been opened.
Important: Unbrazing drier filter from tubing will drive
moisture from desiccant and into system, causing
acids to form. Do not unbraze filter drier from tubing. If
CFC12 service drier was installed in HFC134A system,
drier could overload due to excessive moisture.
• HFC134a compatible copper tubing, part #R0174075 (1/
4" O.D. X 18" length) and part #R0174076 (5/16" O.D. X
24" length) must be used when replacing tubing.
• Avoid system contamination by using Towerdraw E610
evaporating oil, part # R0157532, when flaring,
swagging, or cutting refrigeration tubing.
Brazing
! CAUTION
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage,
take necessary precautions against high
temperatures required for brazing.
Replacement Service Compressor
HFC134a service compressors will be charged with
ester oil and pressurized with dry nitrogen. Before
replacement compressor is installed, pull out 1 rubber
plug. A pop from pressure release should be heard. If a
pop sound is not heard, do not use compressor.
Positive pressure in compressor is vital to keep
moisture out of ester oil. Do not leave compressor open
to atmosphere for more than 10 minutes.
Satisfactory results require cleanliness, experience,
and use of proper materials and equipment.
Connections to be brazed must be properly sized, free
of rough edges, and clean.
Generally accepted brazing materials are:
• Copper to copper joints: SIL-FOS (alloy of 15 percent
silver, 80 percent copper, and 5 percent phosphorous).
Use without flux. Recommended brazing temperature is
approximately 1400°F. Do not use for copper to steel
connection.
• Copper to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (alloy of 30
percent silver, 38 percent copper, 32 percent zinc). Use
with fluoride based flux. Recommended brazing
temperature is approximately 1200°F.
• Steel to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (see copper
to steel joints).
• Brass to copper joints: SILVER SOLDER (see copper
to steel joints).
• Brass to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (see copper
to steel joints).
Compressor Testing Procedures
! WARNING
To avoid death or severe personal injury, never use
oxygen, air or acetylene for pressure testing or clean
out of refrigeration system. Use of oxygen, air, or
acetylene may result in violent explosion. Oxygen
may explode on contact with oil and acetylene will
spontaneously explode when under pressure.
Refer to Technical Data Sheet “Temperature
Relationship Chart” for operating watts, test points, and
temperature relationship test for unit being tested.
• Temperature testing is accomplished by using 3 lead
thermocouple temperature tester in specific locations.
Test point T-1 is outlet on evaporator coil and T-2 is
inlet. Test point T-3 is suction tube temperature midway
between where armaflex ends and suction port of
compressor (approximately 12 inches from
compressor).
• Thermocouple tips should be attached securely to
specified locations.
• Do not test during initial pull down. Allow one off cycle
or balanced temperature condition to occur before
proceeding with testing.

• Suction tube temperature below ambient. Always
check for separated heat exchanger when suction
temperature is colder than ambient.
Various conditons could indicate an overcharge. For
example, if the cooling coil is not defrosted at regular
intervals, due to a failure of the defrost system, the
refrigerant will "flood out" and cause the suction line to
frost or sweat. The cause of this problem should be
corrected rather than to purge refrigerant from the
sytem. Running the freezer section colder than
necessary (-2 to -1 F. is considered normal package
temperatures) or continuous running of the compressor
for a variety of reasons, or the freezer fan motor not
running, may give the indication of an overcharge.

WATTAGE
VARIATION
FROM
NORMAL
Symptoms of Refrigeration Shortage
• Rise in food product temperature in both
compartments. (See Note 1 below.)
• Long or continuous run time.
• Look for obvious traces of oil that would occur due to a
leak or cracked refrigerant line.
• Lower than normal wattage.
• Compressor will be hot to touch because of the heat
generated by the motor windings from long continuous
running. It will not be as hot as it would be with a full
charge and long run times for some other reason such
as a dirty condenser.
• Depending on the amount of the shortage, the
condenser will not be hot, but closer to room
temperature. The capillary tube will be warmer than
normal from a slight shortage.
• If the leak is on the high side of the system, both
gauges will show lower than normal readings and will
show progressively lower readings as this charge
becomes less. The suction pressure guage will
probably indicate a vacuum.
• If the leak is on the low side of the system the suction
pressure guage will be lower than normal - probably in
a vacuum - and the head pressure gauge will be
higher than normal. It will probably continue to
become higher because air drawn in through the leak
is compressed by the compressor and accumulates in
System Diagnosis
the high side (condenser) of the system.
• Only partial frosting of evaporator instead of even
frosting of entire coil.
NOTE 1: Usually the first thing that is noticed by the
user is a rise in temperature foods. Although
temperatures will rise in both the freezer section
and the food compartment, the frozen meats
and vegetables will not thaw immediately. The
customer doesn't associate the problem with
the freezer section and will first notice that milk
and other food beverages are not cold enough.
Under some circumstances, such as in the case of
forced air meatkeeper model with a slight shortage of
refrigerant, freezing in the food compartment may be
experienced due to the additional running time. With a
refrigerant leak, however, it always gets worse and as
the refrigerant charge decreases the temperature will
continue to rise.
With a shortage of refrigerant the capillary line will not
have a full column of liquid. As a result, there is a
noticeable hissing sound in the evaporator. This should
not be mistaken for the regular refrigerant boiling
sounds that would be considered normal.
Symptoms of a Restriction
Always remember refrigeration (cooling) occurs on the
low pressure side of a partial restriction (obviously a
total restriction will completely stop the circulation of
refrigerant and no cooling will take place).
Physically feel the refrigeration lines when a restriction
is suspected. The most common place for a restriction
is at the drier-filter or at the capillary tube inlet or outlet.
If the restriction is not total there will be a temperature
difference at the point of restriction, the area on the
evaporator side will be cooler. In many cases frost and/
or condensation will be present. A longer time is
required for the system to equalize.
Any kinked line will cause a restriction so the entire
system should be visually checked.
A slight restriction will give the same indications as a
refrigerant shortage with lower than normal back
pressure, head pressure, and wattage, warmer product
temperatures.
NOTE 2: If a total restriction is on the discharge side of
the compressor, higher than normal head
pressures and wattages would result. This is
true only while the low side is being pumped out
and if the restriction was between the
compressor and the first half of the condenser.
21
To diagnose for a restriction versus a refrigerant
shortage, discharge the system, replace the drier-filter,
evacuate and recharge with the specified refrigerant
charge. If the unit performs normally three possibilities
exist: 1) refrigerant loss, 2) partially restricted drierfilter, and 3) moisture in system.
If the unit performs as it previously did you may have a
restricted capillary line or condenser or kinked line.
Find the point of restriction and correct it.
A restriction reduces the flow rate of the refrigerant and
consequently reduces the rate of heat removal.
Complete restriction may be caused by moisture, solid
contaminants in the system, or a poorly soldered joint.
Moisture freezes at the evaporator inlet end of the
capillary tube or solid contaminants collect in the drierfilter. The wattage drops because the compressor is not
circulating the usual amount of refrigerant.
As far as pressure readings are concerned, if the
restriction, such as a kinked line or a joint soldered shut
is anywhere on the low side, the suction pressure would
probably be in a vacuum while the head pressure will be
near normal. If the restriction is on the high side, the
suction pressure, again, will probably be in a vacuum
while the head pressure will be higher than normal
during the pump out period described earlier. In either
case, it will take longer than the normal ten minutes or
so for the head pressure to equalize with the low side
after the compressor stops.
Symptoms of Air in System
This can result from a low side leak or improper
servicing. If a leak should occur on the low side, the
temperature control would not be satisfied; thus,
continuous running of the compressor would result. The
compressor would eventually pump the low side into a
vacuum drawing air and moisture into the system. Air
and R134A do not mix so the air pressure would be
added to the normal head pressure, resulting in higher
than normal head pressures.
One way to determine if air is in the system is to read
the head pressure gauge with the product off and
evaporator and condenser at the same temperature and
then take the temperature on the condenser outlet tube.
This temperature should be within 3° or 4° F. of what the
Pressure-Temperature Relation chart shows for the
given idle head pressure. If the temperature of the
condenser outlet is considerably lower than the idle
head pressure of the gauge this would indicate there is
air in the system.
Thorough leak checking is necessary. Correct the
source of the leak. Do not attempt to purge off the air
because this could result in the system being
undercharged. It is best to discharge, replace drier,
evacuate and recharge with the specified refrigerant
charge.
16021730 Rev. 0
System Diagnosis
Symptoms of Low or High Ambient
Temperature Installation
Lower ambient air temperature reduces the condensing
temperature and therefore reduces the temperature of
the liquid entering the evaporator. The increase in
refrigeration effect due to operation in a lower ambient
results in a decrease in power consumption and run
time. At lower ambients there is a reduction in cabinet
heat leak which is partially responsibile for lower power
consumption and run time.
An increase in refrigeration effect cannot be expected
below a certain minimum ambient temperature. This
temperature varies with the type and design of the
product.
Generally speaking, ambient temperatures cannot be
lower than 60° F. without affecting operating efficiency.
Conversely, the higher the ambient temperature the
higher the head pressure must be to raise the high side
refrigerant temperature above that of the condensing
medium. Therefore, head pressure will be higher as the
ambient temperature raises. Refrigerators installed in
ambient temperatures lower than 60° F. will not perform
as well because the pressures within the system are
generally reduced and unbalanced. This means that the
lower head pressure forces less liquid refrigerant
through the capillary line. The result is the symptoms of
a refrigerant shortage. The lower the ambient
temperature the more pronounced this condition
becomes.
When a point where the ambient temperature is below
the cut-in of the Temperature Control is reached, the
compressor won't run.
The drain traps will freeze in ambient temperatures of
32° F.
Heat Load
A greater heat load can result from the addition of more
than normal supply of foods, such as after doing the
weekly shopping. Other items contributing to an
additional heat load would be excessive door openings,
poor door sealing, interior light remaining on, etc.
An increase in heat being absorbed by the refrigerant in
the evaporator will affect the temperature and pressure
of the gas returning to the compressor. Compartment
temperatures, power consumption, discharge, and
suction pressures are all affected by heat load.
Pressures will be higher than normal under heavy heat
load.

fan blade is made of polyethylene and is pushed
onto the shaft. It is important when replacing the fan
blade that the hub of the fan blade faces out, toward
the of the evaporator cover. If the fan fails or

air from the freezer it mixes with the existing fresh
food air. Air blows down the back wall and returns
up the front of the fresh food compartment via fresh
food return air duct. The fan blade is made of
polyethylene and is pushed onto the shaft. It is
important when replacing the fan blade that the hub
of the fan blade faces out, toward the of the
evaporator cover. If the fan fails or operates
erratically, the reduced air circulation will result in
poor cooling characteristics.

cause the temperature display on the drawer to
fluctuate outside the range of temperature listed
above. This is normal. For best results, set the
fresh food compartment to 37°F (3°C) and the
freezer compartment to 0°F (18°C).

CLIMATEZONETM STORAGE DRAWERS
The two lower drawers in the fresh food
compartment are equipped with ClimateZoneTM
Technology. This technology allows the temperature
within each drawer to be precisely controlled at
optimal levels for storing meats, fresh produce and
fruit, or citrus fruits.
The electronic temperature control within these
drawers provides preset temperatures based on the
food group that is selected. The actual temperature
within each ClimateZoneTM drawer is displayed
electronically. Each setting provides temperatures in
the range outlined in the chart below.
ClimateZoneTM Drawer Settings
The MEATS setting is recommended whenever
storing fresh meat, poultry and fish. Store meats in
airtight containers or sealed bags to contain any
juices. Clean up spills immediately, then disinfect.
Select the PRODUCE setting when storing a mixed
load of fresh fruits and vegetables, such as:

AUTOMATIC ICEMAKER
After the refrigerator has been connected
to the water supply, move the wire lever
arm on the icemaker into the down
(ON) position to start its operation.The
icemaker will fill with water when the
freezer reaches the proper temperature.
It may be 8 to 12 hours before the icemaker furnishes any usable ice cubes.
Discard all the cubes from the first two or
three batches made.These initial ice cubes
may be irregularly shaped, discolored, or
contain impurities from the new water
supply piping.
When the ice cubes are ejected it is
normal for several cubes to be joined
together at the ends. They can easily be
broken apart. The icemaker will continue
to make ice until the supply of ice cubes
raises the wire lever arm, shutting the icemaker off.
I CE B IN
CAUTION:
To check the ice level or gain access to
the ice bin, lift the door on the bin.
TO REMOVE THE BIN:
• Turn off the icemaker by moving the
icemaker wire lever arm up to the OFF
position.
• While holding the top edge of the ice
bin, grasp the lower edge of the ice bin
and pull down to release the latch, then
pull ice bin out.
• Reverse procedure to replace the ice
bin.
• Turn the icemaker on by lowering the
wire lever arm.
To manually stop the operation of the icemaker, move the wire lever arm into the
up (OFF) position.
• Do not place fingers or hands on the
automatic ice making mechanism
while the refrigerator is plugged in.
• Under certain rare circumstances,
ice cubes may be discolored, usually
appearing with a green-bluish hue.
The cause of this unusual discoloration is a combination of factors
such as certain characteristics of
local water, household plumbing and
the accumulation of copper salts in
an inactive water supply line which
feeds the icemaker.
Continued consumption of such discolored ice cubes may be injurious
to health. If such discoloration is
observed, discard the ice cubes and
contact your local water utility or
water treatment company.
NOTE:
Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the icemaker.
Beverages and foods should NOT be
placed in the ice storage bin for quick
chilling.These items can block the wire
lever arm, causing the icemaker to malfunction.
• buzzing of the water valve
• running of the water as the tray fills
• rattling of the ice cubes falling into an
empty ice bin.
If the ice is not used frequently, the ice
cubes will become cloudy, shrink, stick
together and taste
stale. Empty the ice
storage bin periodically
and wash it in lukewarm water. Rinse and
dry thoroughly.

AUTOMATIC ICE AND WATER DISPENSER
(SELECT MODELS)
D ISPENSING WATER
AND I CE
NOTES:
• When using the ice dispenser for the
first time, discard the first two or
three dozen cubes.
• When using the water dispenser for
the first time, press the actuator pad
for ten minutes to bleed the air from
the water line. Discard the first five
to six glasses of water dispensed.
This will ensure pure and fresh
water for drinking.
To dispense ice or water, position a glass
against the top portion of the actuator
pad and press. Hold the glass up to the ice
opening to avoid spills.
To stop dispensing, release the pressure
on the actuator pad and hold the container in position momentarily to catch
the last pieces of ice or the last drops of
water. The ice delivery door will remain
open for a short time. When it closes, a
closing sound can be heard.
D ISPENSER L IGHT
When the actuator pad is touched, the
dispenser light automatically illuminates.
To manually turn the light on, touch the
pad.
To turn the light off, touch the pad again.
D ISPENSER L OCK
To interrupt power to the water and ice
dispenser so it cannot be used, touch the
pad 3 times within 10 seconds.
The lock pad is illuminated when the dispenser is locked. Touch the pad 3 times
within 10 seconds again to unlock the ice
and water service.
S PILL T RAY
DO NOT pour water into the Spill Tray
grille at the bottom of the dispenser area.
This is a spill area, NOT a drain. Normal,
small spills will evaporate. Larger spills
should be wiped up with a soft cloth or
sponge. The grille slides out for clean up.
It is recommended to clean the spill area
occasionally to prevent mineral deposits.
C RUSH , C UBE , WATER
PADS
The control pads are located on the dispenser control panel.To select the desired
function, touch the appropriate pad.
When ice cubes, crushed ice or
water pads are touched the selection is

12
ICE AND WATER
DISPENSING TIPS
• Some crushed ice may be dispensed
even though cubed ice was selected.
This happens occasionally when a
few cubes are accidentally channeled
into the crusher.
• Likewise, when changing from
crushed ice to cubes, some crushed
ice may be dispensed. This may also
happen if irregular-sized cubes or ice
chips are in the storage bin.
• If the “crushed” option is used frequently or exclusively, select the
“cube” option occasionally to clear
any crushed ice that may have built
up in the chute.
• A slight pause may be noticed when
dispensing crushed ice.This is normal
because the ice is being channeled to
the crusher. Crushed ice pieces will
vary in size and shape.
• If the ice dispenser is not used frequently, ice cubes may clump
together and may need to be broken
apart or discarded.
• Do not add ice to the storage bin
which was not produced by the icemaker. It may not crush and/or dispense properly.
• Avoid operating the ice dispenser
continuously for more than five minutes. Remove large quantities from
the bin by hand.
• Avoid dispensing ice directly into fine
china or delicate crystal. The pressure of pressing against the actuator
pad and the ice dropping into the
container can cause cracking or
chipping of delicate items.
• Water from the dispenser is not as
cold as ice water.The first glass or two
of water dispensed each time may be

C ARTRIDGE
I NSTALLATION
The water filter mounts in the machine
compartment above the refrigerator.
Your refrigerator was delivered from the
factory with a filter bypass in place. If the
filter was not installed for you when the
refrigerator was installed, the filter cartridge can be found packaged inside of the
refrigerator. It can be easily installed
without using any additional parts, screws
or fasteners.
If the home is equipped with a Reverse
Osmosis water treatment system, this
additional water filter is not necessary.
The filter bypass should remain installed.
IMPORTANT:
• In order for the water filter monitor
system to be set, power to the unit
must be ON when a new filter is
installed.

FOOD PURCHASING, STORAGE &
HANDLING GUIDELINES
T EMPERATURE
The fresh food compartment should be
set in the range of 34° F (1° C) - 38° F
(3° C), based on your preference.
The freezer compartment should be set
at 0° F (-18° C) or below.
The best cooling occurs when the air is
allowed to circulate freely around the
food items. Do not over crowd the refrigerator shelves.
E GGS
AND
D AIRY
Store eggs on the refrigerator shelf in
their original carton.
Refrigerate eggs in the shell until you are
ready to use them, do not allow them to
warm up to room temperature prior to
cooking.
Do not use cracked eggs.
Do not purchase eggs if they are being
sold from the aisle, rather than a cooler.
Follow the freshness dates printed on the
packaging when using dairy foods.
Refrigerate dairy foods immediately after
purchase and after each use.
Close cartons tightly after use to keep out
air and other food odors.
Occasionally mold will develop on the
surface of hard cheeses (Swiss, Cheddar,
Parmesan, etc). Cut off at least an inch
around and below the moldy area, keeping
the knife out of the mold itself.
If soft cheese, cottage cheese, cheese
slices or other cheese foods develop
mold, do not save.
F RESH M EATS
P OULTRY
AND
F RESH F RUITS
V EGETABLES
AND
Leave meat and poultry in original store
wrap before use (repeated handling can
introduce bacteria into the product).
Store in a ClimateZone™ storage drawer
set on the appropriate setting (Produce
or Citrus, see page 8).
Store raw meats in sealed packages to
prevent leaks and possible contamination
of other foods and surfaces.
Sort fresh produce items before storage
and use bruised or soft items first. Discard
those showing signs of decay.
If not freezing fresh meats or poultry,
store in the ClimateZone™ drawer set
on the Meats setting.
Handle fresh produce with care. Even a
minor bruise can promote decay and
result in premature quality loss.
Observe and follow all expiration dates
for perishable items that are precooked
or ready to eat.
Wrap odorous foods such as onions and
cabbage.
L EFTOVERS
Refrigerate or freeze leftovers immediately. Perishable food should never be
allowed to be out at room temperature
for greater than 2 hours total.
Store leftovers in clean, shallow, tightly
covered containers. The core of dense,
large pieces of meat and poultry or deep
pots of soup and stew take longer to
reach a safe storage temperature. Shallow
containers allow food to cool thoroughly
more quickly. Cut large cuts of meat into
slices of 3 inches (7.62 cm) or less and
remove poultry from the bone before
refrigerating. Divide soups and stews into
smaller containers.
When reusing leftovers, reheat thoroughly.
Heat up leftover sauces, soups, and gravy
quickly and boil for at least one minute.
Heat other leftovers to 165° F (74° C).
15
Wait to wash and cut up fresh fruits and
vegetables until right before use. Washing
can strip away natural protection while
cutting initiates enzyme activity. Both factors can have a negative effect upon shelf
life.
Wash all fresh fruits and vegetables at the
time of use, even those with a peel or rind
that will not be eaten. This helps prevent
bacteria from the outside being transferred to the edible inside during cutting.
F ROZEN F OOD
S TORAGE
Do not refreeze items that have completely thawed.
The freezer section will operate more
efficiently when it is loaded. If there are
not enough food items to fill the freezer
at least 2⁄3 full, use bags of ice or milk
cartons filled with water to fill the freezer
up to this level.

NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS
Recent improvements in refrigeration design may introduce sounds in your new refrigerator that were not noticed in earlier models.
These improvements were made to create a refrigerator that will preserve food better, run more energy efficiently, and perform quieter
overall. Because new refrigerator designs run quieter than past models you may start to detect sounds that were actually present in your
older model but were typically masked by the refrigerator’s higher sound levels. Many of these sounds are normal. The following are
some of the normal sounds your new refrigerator may make:
REFRIGERANT FLOW: The flow of the
cooling fluid in your freezer area may cause
gurgling or quiet knocking sounds when the
refrigerator cycles on or off.
COMPRESSOR: The
compressor on this
unit has a variable
speed motor. This
variability allows the
system to adjust to
different usage needs.
This will introduce
speed change sounds
and some higher
pitched
humming
sounds that are
normal
for
the
operation of this type
of compressor.
CONTROL SWITCHES: In
the electronics control area
there are numerous control
switches that make a quiet
clicking sound when you use
your refrigerator or during
some of the normal system
operations.
ICE MAKER: The cabinet
will occasionally generate a
rattling sound when ice
cubes are ejected into the
freezer ice bin. You may
also detect the motor that is
ejecting that ice. These are
normal sounds necessary for
ice making.
AIRFLOW SOUNDS:
There are a number of
fans in the refrigerator
that make airflow sounds
when in operation. The
freezer fan circulates
cool air throughout the
refrigerator. The refrigerator circulating fan
helps keep that compartment's temperature
more uniform. The
condenser fan on top of
your refrigerator is
utilized to remove the
heat generated by the
refrigeration system.
Lastly, the Climate Zone
compartments circulate
air to maintain optimum
temperatures.
WATER VALVES: You may
detect a slight buzzing sound
under the refrigerator when
water is requested from the ice
dispenser or when the ice maker
needs water to make ice.
CABINET LEVELING: An unlevel
cabinet may cause rattles and
vibration noises.

Water supply needs to be
located in the shaded area.
Rough in the water line for the location (Fig. 1). Connect a
1/4" copper line to the house supply. Use a shut off valve
between the refrigerator and supply. The shut off should be
a drilled saddle valve. Do not use a self-tapping valve. The
icemaker operates on 30 to 120 PSI. Route the water line
within a 1/2" of the wall and no higher than 3" from the floor.
Allow at least 3' of excess copper tubing outside the wall or
floor for easy connection to the water valve. * Prior to
connection assure that the water supply and the copper
tubes have been flushed until the water runs clear.
Reverse Osmosis: Remove the water inlet connector from
the 'Yellow' valve and attach to the 'Blue' valve. Assure that
the water filter bypass plug is in place (See Fig. 3).
Disconnect wires from Yellow Valve.

Leveling:
Slide the unit in place and raise the front and rear levelers
3/8"
until the unit touches the brackets. Use a 3/8" socket for
raising and lowering the unit. On each wheel housing there
are two 3/8" hex bolts. On the left side, the outside bolt will
move the rear leveler and the inside bolt will move the front
leveler. On the right side, the outside bolt adjusts the front
leveler and the inside bolt will move the rear leveler (Fig. 4).
The front levelers must be in contact with the floor. To raise
the leveling legs, turn the hex screw in the counter clockwise
direction. Place a level on lower ledge of the machine
compartment. Level the unit front to back and side to side.
This is to prevent tipping of the unit (See Fig. 7). Install the
kickplate. Locate the main power switch in the machine
compartment and toggle the switch "On". Install the grille panel.

If there is a solid soffit above the unit and the clearance is 1"
or less you will not need to block the unit. For installations with
clearances of more than 1", you must use the anti-tipping 2x4
and brackets provided (Fig. 6).
Use the anti-tipping kit provided with the shipping crate. Locate and
mark the 2 wall studs behind the unit. Mark where the "L" brackets
and 2x4 will be located and drill 2 pilot holes 1/8". Locate the proper
height to clear the unit. The space between the top of the unit and
bottom of the wood block must not exceed 1/4". Secure the "L"
brackets, using the provided screws, into the wall studs (À). Make
sure the screws will extend 7/8" into the wall studs. Align the pilot
holes with the "L" brackets and secure the 2x4 with the screws
provided(Á,Â).

Installing Backer Panels:
Remove the door handle or trim piece on overlay models. A magnetic backed molding hides the handle or overlay trim screws. Use the
adhesive side of the packaging tape on the magnetic backed molding to pull it away from door (Fig. 8a). Remove the screws with a
phillips screwdriver (Fig. 8b). Slide the backer panel into position. The backer panel needs to be under the trim. Install the handle.
Replace the molding in the channel, and reset the magnetic backed molding. To install the backer panel on the grille remove the screws
on the top and bottom of the upper cover (Fig 8c). DO NOT REMOVE the foam. Slide the backer panel into place and replace screws
(Fig 8d). If the thickness of the backer panel is less than a 1/4", back it up with a sheet of shim material to obtain a 1/4" thickness.
Cardboard is recommended for Stainless Steel application. For panel size refer to Fig. 10.
CAUTION: Do not drive screws or sharp objects into the doors.
