REFRIGERATOR SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
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 either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using your refrigerator, follow these basic precautions:
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
■ Do not use an adapter.
■ Do not use an extension cord.
■ Disconnect power before servicing.
■ Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Use nonflammable cleaner.
■ Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline,
away from refrigerator.
■ Use two or more people to move and install refrigerator.
■
■
■
■
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Proper Disposal of Your Old Refrigerator
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer:
■
WARNING
■
Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb
inside.
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in 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 these instructions to help prevent
accidents.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack the Refrigerator
Location Requirements
WARNING
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Explosion Hazard
Remove the Packaging
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning on
the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap over the
adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
■ Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids,
or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can
damage the surface of your refrigerator. For more information,
see “Refrigerator Safety.”
IMPORTANT: Do not remove the white foam air return insert from
behind the control panel on the ceiling of the refrigerator. If the insert
is removed, ice may migrate down from the freezer and cause icicles
to form.
■
When Moving Your refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for
cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor. Always pull
the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle
or “walk” the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor
damage could occur.
NOTE: If casters are installed, unlock the casters before
trying to move your refrigerator.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for ¹⁄₂"
(1.25 cm) space on each side and at the top. When installing your
refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave 2" (5.08 cm) minimum on each
side (depending on your model) to allow the door to swing open.
IMPORTANT:
■ Do not install the refrigerator near an oven, radiator, or other heat
source where the temperature will rise above 115°F (43°C), nor in
a location where the temperature will fall below 0°F (-17°C).
■ The warmer the outside temperature, the longer it will take the
refrigerator to cool to the set point temperature when food is
added.
1/2
" (1.25 cm)
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
“Refrigerator Care.”
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when
removing them to avoid impact from dropping.

Caster Installation
NOTE: If you have the casters installed on your refrigerator, the
leveling screws will not work. Shims can be placed under the casters
to level a refrigerator that has casters installed.
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Door Closing
Your refrigerator has two front adjustable rollers – one on the right
and one on the left. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you want
the doors to close easier, adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the
instructions below:
1. Remove the base grille. See Base Grille graphic. The two leveling
screws are part of the front roller assemblies which are at the
base of the refrigerator on either side.
2. Use a screwdriver to adjust the leveling screws. Turn the leveling
screw to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator or turn the
leveling screw to the left to lower that side. It may take several
turns of the leveling screws to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator
takes some weight off the leveling screws and rollers. This makes
it easier to adjust the screws.
3. Open both doors again and check to make sure that they close
as easily as you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the
rear by turning both leveling screws to the right. It may take
several more turns, and you should turn both leveling screws the
same amount.
4. Replace the base grille.
Door Alignment
If the space between your doors looks uneven, you can adjust it
using the instructions below:
1. Pry off the top hinge cover.
2. Loosen the top hinge screws using a ⁵⁄₁₆" socket or wrench.
3. Have someone hold the door in place or put a spacer between
the doors while you tighten the top hinge screws.
4. Replace the top hinge cover.
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.

REFRIGERATOR USE
Using the Controls
For your convenience, your refrigerator controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
controls are still preset to the mid-settings as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off, turn the refrigerator control to the
word OFF or until the word OFF appears. Your product will not cool
when the refrigerator control is set to OFF.
Mid-setting “3”
Adjusting Controls
The mid-settings indicated in the previous section should be correct
for normal household usage. The controls are set correctly when milk
or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures, use the settings listed in the chart
below as a guide. On models with two controls, adjust the
refrigerator temperature first. Wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments and then recheck the temperatures.

FREEZER
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT:
■ Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into
the refrigerator.
■ If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely,
your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer
Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended setting will not
cool the compartments any faster.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to prevent odors
from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior surfaces
thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent
in warm water.

3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
4. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal home
operating environments. If the environment is particularly greasy
or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in the home, the
condenser should be cleaned every 2 to 3 months to ensure
maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
■ Remove the base grille.
■
■
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area of
the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
Changing the Light Bulbs
NOTE: Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the
bulb with one of the same size, shape, and wattage.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove the bulb from behind the control panel in the refrigerator
or from behind the light shield in the freezer (on some models).
Replace it with a bulb of the same wattage.
3. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
Refrigerator Operation
The refrigerator will not operate
WARNING
The motor seems to run too much
Your new refrigerator may run longer than your old one due to its
high-efficiency compressor and fans. The unit may run even longer if
the room is warm, a large food load is added, the door is opened
often, or if the door has been left open.
The refrigerator seems noisy
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Refrigerator noise has been reduced over the years. Due to this
reduction, you may hear intermittent noises from your new
refrigerator that you did not notice from your old model. Below are
listed some normal sounds with explanations.
■ Pulsating - fans/compressor adjusting to optimize performance.
■ Hissing/Rattling - flow of refrigerant, movement of water lines,
or from items placed on top of the refrigerator.
■ Popping - contraction/expansion of inside walls, especially
during initial cool-down.
■ Water running/dripping - may be heard when water melts
during defrosting and runs into the drain pan.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
