Proper Disposal of Your Old Refrigerator
DANGER
Risk of Child Entrapment
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR
OLD REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER:
•Take off the doors.
•Leave the shelves in place so that
children may not easily climb inside.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet. If a 2prong wall receptacle is encountered,
contact a qualified electrician
Do not remove ground prong. Unit must be
grounded at all times.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result
in death, fire, or electrical shock.
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.”
Safety/Installation Tips
•Install and level the refrigerator on a floor that will hold the weight
and in an area suitable for its size and use.
•Do not install the refrigerator near an oven, radiator, or other heat
source.
•Do not use the refrigerator in an area where the room temperature
will fall below 550F (130C).
•Keep the refrigerator out of the weather.
•Connect the refrigerator only to the proper kind of outlet, with the
correct electrical supply and grounding. (Refer to the Electrical
Requirements section of the Installation Instructions.)
•Use the refrigerator only of the uses described in this manual.
•Properly maintain the refrigerator.

Freezer Features
Caution
To avoid damage to ice maker, observe the following:
•Do not force ice maker arm down or up past stop position.
•Do not place or store anything in ice bucket.
Using the Automatic Ice Maker
The ice maker and slide-out ice bucket are not adjustable. The ice
bucket slides forward for easy access of ice. The ice maker will not
produce ice when the ice bucket is not in place. After the freezer
section reaches normal temperature, the ice maker fills with water and
begins operating. Allow 24-48 hours after installation before first
harvest of ice. Discard the first 3 harvests of ice after initially
connecting refrigeration to household water supply and after extended
periods of non-use. The ice maker produces 7 to 9 batches of ice in a
24 hour period under ideal conditions.
16
After ice is formed, the ice
maker drops ice cubes into the
ice bucket. During ice
production, the ice maker arm
raises and lowers. When the
ice bucket is full, the ice maker
arm turns ice maker off. To
manually stop ice production,
raise the ice maker arm. A
definite click is heard when
proper position is reached. In
non-dispensing models, ice maker will not function unless ice bin is
pushed all the way back into position.
Solving common ice maker problems
Problem
Possible Cause/Solution
Ice crescents attached at
corners
This is normal. They break apart easily.
Shake bin occasionally to keep cubes
separated.
Ice maker will not operate
or ice is not made fast
enough.
•On/Off lever is in the OFF (up)
position. Lower lever to ON (down)
position.
•Freezer is not cold enough. Adjust
temperature controls and wait 24
hours.
Off-taste or odor in ice
•New plumbing connections can cause
discolored or off-flavored ice.
Discard the first three harvests of ice.
•Cubes are stored too long. Throw
them away and make a new supply.
•Food is not wrapped properly.
•Freezer and ice bin need to be
cleaned.
•Water may contain minerals. A filter
may be needed to remove them.
17
Ice and Water Dispenser (some models)
“Snow” may form on door and ice chute when repeatedly dispensing
crushed ice. Allow “snow” to evaporate or wipe dry. NOTE: The ice
and water dispenser will shut off if the refrigerator or freezer door has
been left ajar for ten minutes. Operation will resume when the door is
closed.
Caution
To avoid personal injury or property damage, observe the
following:
•Do not operate dispenser with freezer door open.
•Do not put fingers, hands, or any foreign object into
dispenser opening.
•Do not use sharp objects to break ice.
Removing Ice Bucket
Water Dispenser Operation
It takes approximately 1 minute after initially connecting refrigerator to
household water supply before water dispenses. Discard first 10 to 14
containers of water after initially connecting refrigerator to household
water supply and after extended periods of non-use.
Dispense water by pressing sturdy wide-mouth container against water
dispensing pad. Stop water dispensing by releasing pressure on pad.
A small amount of water may continue to fall. Spill shelf is not selfdraining. Large spills should be wiped dry.
Caution

and as high possible in dispenser area.
If dispensing ice continuously, dispenser
motor is designed to shut off after 3 to 5
minutes. Motor resets after 3 minutes
and dispensing can continue. A slight
delay occurs when switching between
cubed and crushed modes. Pieces of
crushed ice will vary in size and shape.
18
Ice pad

quality water. NOTE: Allow 1-2
minute delay in water dispersal to
allow internal water tank to fill.
19
Replacing Water Filter
Interior Surfaces
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in water filtration system may cause water
and cartridge to eject. Use caution when removing.
1. Turn filter cartridge counterclockwise until it releases from filter
head.
2. Drain water from filter into sink and dispose of cartridge.
3. Wipe up excess water at filter location and continue with steps 2

Your new refrigerator may make different sounds than your old one.
Hard surfaces, such as the ceilings, walls, and cabinets around the
refrigerator can make sounds seem louder. These sounds are normal
and will soon become familiar. These sounds also indicate refrigerator
is operating and performing as designed.
Freezer and fresh food fan - air rushes and whirls.
•F
Sealed system - (evaporator and heat exchanger) refrigerant flow
•S
gurgles, pops or sounds like boiling water.
Defrost heater - sizzles, hisses or pops.
•D
Condenser fan - air rushes and whirls.
•C
Compressor - has a high pitched hum or pulsating sound.
•C
•IIce cubes - from ice maker drop into ice bucket.
•IIce maker valve hookup - buzzes when ice maker fills with water. This
occurs whether or not refrigerator is connected to water supply. If
refrigerator is not connected to water supply, stop sound by raising
ice maker arm to OFF position.
•Foam insulation is very energy efficient and has excellent insulating
capabilities. However, foam insulation is not as sound absorbent as
previously used fiberglass insulation.
Saving Energy
You can help your refrigerator use less electricity.
•Clean the condenser coil regularly.
•Open the door as few times as possible. Think about what you need
before you open the door. Get everything out at one time. Keep
food organized so you will not have to search for what you want.
Close door as soon as food is removed.
•Don’t overcrowd the refrigerator so air movement is blocked.
•Don’t set the refrigerator and freezer to temperature colder than
necessary.

Vacation Tips
Short Vacations
No need to shut off the refrigerator if you will be away for less than
four weeks.
1. Use any perishables.
2. Freeze other items.
3. Raise the signal arm in the automatic ice maker to the OFF (up)
position and shut off water supply to the ice maker.
Long Vacations
If you will be away for a month or more:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and freezer sections.
2. Turn the power disconnect switch to the OFF position.
3. Clean the refrigerator and door gaskets according to the “Cleaning
and Maintenance” section on page 16.
4. Prop doors open with rubber or woods blocks so air can circulate
inside. This will keep odor and mold from building up.
5. Raise the signal arm in the automatic ice maker to the OFF (up)
position and shut off water supply to the ice maker.
Power Interruptions
1. If service will be interrupted 24 hours or less, keep doors closed.
This helps food stay frozen.
2. If service will be interrupted longer than 24 hours:
(a) Remove all frozen food and store in frozen food locker. OR
(b) Place 2 lbs. of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic foot of
freezer space. This will keep food frozen for 2 to 4 days. Wear
gloves to protect your hands from dry ice burns. OR
(c) If neither a food locker or dry ice is available, use or can
perishable food at once.
Food Storage Guide
There is a correct way to package and store refrigerated or frozen food.
To keep food fresher longer follow these recommendations:
Storing Fresh Food
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof
material. This prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the
refrigerator. For dated products, check date to ensure freshness.
26
Leafy Vegetables
Remove store wrapping. Tear off bruised and discolored areas. Wash in
cold water and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic container and store
in produce drawer.
Vegetables with Skins (carrots, peppers, etc.)
Store in plastic bags or plastic containers.
Fruit
Wash, let dry and store in plastic bags. Do not wash or hull berries until
they are ready to use. Sort and keep berries in original container in
produce drawer, or store in loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator
shelf.
Eggs
Store without washing in original carton or in provided egg bin.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For best storage, place milk on interior shelf.
Butter or Margarine
Keep opened butter in covered dish or closed compartment. When
storing in freezer, wrap in freezer packaging.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap, aluminum foil, or store in plastic
containers with tight lids.
Meat
Store meat in original wrapping as long as it is airtight and moistureproof. Rewrap if necessary. See below for recommended storage times.
When storing meat longer than the recommended times, freeze the
meat.
Chicken
1-2 days
Ground Beef 1-2 days
Steaks/Roasts 3-5 days
Cured Meats 7-10 days
NOTE: Use fresh fish and shellfish the
27
Bacon
Cold Cuts
Variety Meats
5-7 days
3-5 days
1-2 days
same day as purchased.
Troubleshooting
Storing Frozen Food
Packaging food for freezing
The secret of successful freezing is in the packaging. The way you
close and seal the package must not allow air or moisture in or out.
Packaging done in any other way could compromise the quality of the
frozen foods
Do not use:
•Bread wrappers
•Non-polyethylene plastic containers
•Containers without lids.
•Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap
•Thin, semi-permeable wrap
Recommended packaging:
•Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting lids
•Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
•Heavy-duty aluminum foil
•Plastic-coated paper
•Non-permeable plastic wraps (made from saran film)
•Zip-top freezer bags
Follow package or container instructions for proper freezing methods.
Freezing Foods
Do not expect your freezer to quick-freeze any large quantity of food.
Do not load more than 2-3 pounds of unfrozen food per cubic foot
within 24 hours. Leave enough space for air to circulate around
packages. Be careful to leave enough room at the front so the door
can close tightly.
A full freezer stays cold longer than a partly filled one. A freezer full of
meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If food
contains ice crystals, it may be safely refrozen, although the quality and
flavor may be affected. If the condition of the food is poor, or if you
feel it is unsafe, dispose of it.
Storage times will vary according to the quality of food, the type of
packaging or wrap used (airtight and moisture-proof), and the storage
temperature, which should be 0 - 2oF (-18 to -17oC).

Performance problems are often minor and can be fixed without tools.
Listed in this chart are the most common problems consumers run into
with their appliances. Please read through this and see if it can solve
your problem before calling for service.
Problem
Check the following
Refrigerator will not
operate
Is the power cord plugged into a live
circuit with the proper voltage?
Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker
tripped? Is the power switch in the ON
position?
Refrigerator makes
unfamiliar sounds
See “Understanding the sounds you
may hear” for descriptions of normal sounds
and what makes them.
Water in the defrost
pan
This is normal in hot, muggy weather. Make
sure the pan is level so it does not overflow.
Ice Maker will not
operate
Is the freezer cold enough to make ice? It
could take overnight for the freezer to reach
the proper temperature. Is the signal arm in
the ON (down) position? Is the water valve
turned on? Is water getting to the water
valve? Check water line for leaks.
Lights do not work
Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker
tripped? Is a bulb burned out?
Motor seems to run
too long
The motor naturally runs longer on hot days, if
the room is too warm, if a large amount of
food has been added, or if the doors are
opened often.
Ice and water
dispenser will not
operate
Has either the refrigerator or freezer door been
left ajar for ten minutes or more?
