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 drawer are not adjustable. The ice
drawer slides forward for easy access of ice. After the All Freezer
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 unit 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.
After ice is formed, the ice maker drops ice cubes into the ice bin.
During ice production, the ice maker arm raises and lowers. When the
ice bin 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. Ice maker will not function unless ice bin is
pushed all the way back into position.

Ice Bin Adjustment
Ice bins can be adjusted to match the way you use your unit. The ice
bin on the left hand side is used for collecting ice from the icemaker.
Once the left hand ice bin is filled with ice, the bins can be reversed so
additional ice is made. If icemaker is not operating, the ice bin can be
used for cold storage.

Understanding Sounds You May Hear
Your new unit may make different sounds than your old one. Hard
surfaces, such as the ceilings, walls, and cabinets around the unit can
make sounds seem louder. These sounds are normal and will soon
become familiar. These sounds also indicate unit is operating and
performing as designed.
Freezer or Refrigerator 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
C
•Compressor - has a high pitched hum or pulsating sound.
•IIce cubes - from ice maker drop into ice bin.
•IIce maker valve hookup - buzzes when ice maker fills with water. This
occurs whether or not All Freezer is connected to water supply. If All
Freezer 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.

You can help your unit 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 unit so air movement is blocked.
•Don’t set the unit to temperature colder than necessary.

Vacation Tips
Short Vacations
No need to shut off the unit 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.
2. Turn the power disconnect switch to the OFF position.
3. Clean the unit and door gaskets according to the “Cleaning and
Maintenance” section on page 20.
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 unit for every cubic foot of interior
volume. 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

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
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
Unit 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?
Unit 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.
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).
