It is essential that operational, maintenance and filter replacement
requirements be carried out for the product to perform as advertised.
The filter monitor system measures the amount of water that
passes through the filter and alerts you to replace the filter. When
90% of the filter’s rated life is used, the yellow (Order) light comes
on. When 100% of the filter’s rated life is used, the red (Replace)
light comes on, and it is recommended that you replace the filter.
For models without filter status lights, replace the filter every 6
months. Use Dacor replacement cartridge AFF3.
This product is for cold water use only.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after
the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used
on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
This system has been tested according to ANSI/NSF 42 and 53
for reduction of the substances listed above. The concentration
of the indicated substances in water entering the system was
reduced to a concentration less than or equal to the permissible
limit for water leaving the system, as specified in ANSI/NSF 42
and 53.

Care and Cleaning
Cleaning
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.
WARNING
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.
Explosion Hazard
„„ Replace the base grille when finished.
Use nonflammable cleaner.
5. Plug in the refrigerator or reconnect power.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Changing the Light Bulbs
Important information to know about glass shelves and
covers:
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace the bulb with an appliance bulb of the same size, shape
and wattage (no greater than 40 watts).
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.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small, pebblesize pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers are
heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid dropping.
1. Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove the light shield.
Top of the refrigerator compartment:
Squeeze both sides of the light shield while pulling downward
to remove.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to avoid
buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
Beneath ice storage enclosure:
Press along upper edge of light shield and roll light shield
forward to remove.
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 avoid 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.
3. Replace the burned-out bulb(s) with an appliance bulb(s) no
greater than 40 watts.
1. Unplug the 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.
4. Replace the light shield(s) by inserting the tabs on the shield
into the liner holes and snap into place.
NOTE: To avoid damaging the light shield, do not force the
shield beyond the locking point.
3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
5. Plug in the refrigerator or reconnect power.
To keep stainless steel looking like new and to remove minor
scuffs or marks, it is suggested that you use the Dacor
approved stainless steel cleaner and polish, part number
A302. To order the cleaner, see www.everythingdacor.com.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
Do not allow the stainless steel cleaner and polish to come
into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If unintentional contact does
occur, clean plastic parts with a sponge and mild detergent in
warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Before You Call for Service
Troubleshooting Guide
The refrigerator seems noisy
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.
Refrigerator will not operate
WARNING
„„ Buzzing - heard when the water valve opens to fill the ice
maker.
„„ 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.
Electrical Shock Hazard
„„ Sizzling/Gurgling - water dripping on the heater during
defrost cycle.
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
„„ Popping - contraction/expansion of inside walls, especially
during initial cool-down.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
„„ Water running - may be heard when water melts during the
defrost cycle and runs into the drain pan.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
„„ Creaking/Cracking - occurs as ice is being ejected from the
ice maker mold.
The doors will not close completely
„„ Power cord unplugged? Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
„„ Door blocked open? Move food packages away from door.
„„ Is outlet working? Plug in a lamp to see if the outlet is
working.
„„ Bin or shelf in the way? Push bin or shelf back in the correct
position.
„„ Household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Replace
the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues,
call an electrician.
The doors are difficult to open
„„ Gaskets dirty or sticky? Clean gaskets and contact surfaces
with mild soap and warm water. Rinse and dry with soft cloth.
„„ Are controls on? Make sure the refrigerator controls are on.
See page 3.
WARNING
„„ New installation? Allow 24 hours following installation for the
refrigerator to cool completely.
NOTE: Adjusting the temperature controls to the coldest
setting will not cool either compartment more quickly.
Temperature is too warm
„„ New installation? Allow 24 hours following installation for the
refrigerator to cool completely.
Explosion Hazard
„„ Door(s) opened often or left open? Allows warm air to enter
refrigerator. Minimize door openings and keep doors fully
closed.
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
„„ Large load of food added? Allow several hours for refrigerator to return to normal temperature.
„„ Controls set correctly for the surrounding conditions?
Adjust the controls a setting colder. Check temperature in 24
hours. See page 3.
There is interior moisture buildup
NOTE: Some moisture buildup is normal.
„„ Humid room? Contributes to moisture buildup.
„„ Door(s) opened often or left open? Allows humid air to
enter refrigerator. Minimize door openings and keep doors fully
closed.
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, doors are opened
often or if the doors have been left open.
