IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: When using this
appliance, always exercise basic safety precautions,
including the following:
• Use this appliance only for its intended purpose
as described in this Owner’s Manual.
• This refrigerator must be properly installed in
accordance with the Installation Instructions
before it is used.
• Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang
on the shelves in the refrigerator. They could
damage the refrigerator and seriously injure
themselves.
• Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment when hands are damp or wet.
Skin may adhere to these extremely cold surfaces.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
• In refrigerators with automatic icemakers,
avoid contact with moving parts of the ejector
mechanism, or with the heating element located
on the bottom of the icemaker. Do not place
fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking
mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in.
• Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas:
clearances between the doors and between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
• Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning and
making repairs. NOTE: We strongly recommend
that any servicing be performed by a qualified
individual.
• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb,
the refrigerator should be unplugged in order
to avoid contact with a live wire filament.
(A burned-out light bulb may break when
being replaced.)
NOTE: Turning control to OFF does not remove
power to the light circuit.
• Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely.
• Always clean the CustomCool™ Tray after
thawing food.
DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
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 the
instructions below to help prevent accidents.
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.
REFRIGERANTS
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants, which
under federal law must be removed prior
to product disposal.
4
If you are getting rid of an old refrigeration product,
check with the company handling
the disposal about what to do.
MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES
LIRE ET CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS
AVERTISSEMENT : Lorsque vous

précautions de base, notamment :
• N’utilisez le réfrigérateur que pour son usage
prévu, comme décrit dans le présent manuel.
• Installez le réfrigérateur conformément aux
directives d’installation avant de l’utiliser.
• Ne laissez pas les enfants grimper, s’asseoir,
se tenir debout ni se pendre aux clayettes du
réfrigérateur. Ils pourraient endommager le
réfrigérateur et se blesser gravement.
• Une fois le réfrigérateur en marche, ne touchez
pas les surfaces froides du congélateur, surtout
si vous avez les mains humides ou mouillées :
la peau risque d’adhérer à ces surfaces très
froides.
• N’entreposez et n’utilisez pas d’essence ou
autres vapeurs et liquides inflammables à
proximité de cet appareil ou de tout autre
appareil électroménager.
• Éloignez les doigts des parties du réfrigérateur
où l’on peut facilement se pincer : les espaces
entre les portes et entre les portes et les placards
sont toujours étroits. Soyez prudent lorsque
vous fermez les portes de l’appareil en présence
des enfants.
• Débranchez votre réfrigérateur avant de le
nettoyer et de le réparer. REMARQUE : Nous
vous recommandons vivement de confier toute
réparation à un technicien qualifié.
• Avant de remplacer une ampoule grillée,
le réfrigérateur doit être débranché afin
d’éviter tout contact avec un fil sous tension. (Une
ampoule grillée peut se briser pendant l’opération).
REMARQUE : Lorsque vous placez la commande
sur éteint, l’alimentation électrique de l’ampoule
n’est pas coupée.
• Ne faites PAS recongeler des aliments surgelés
qui ont complètement dégelé.
• Nettoyez toujours le contenant CustomCool™
après avoir dégelé les aliments.
• Pour les réfrigérateurs dotés d’une machine
à glaçons automatique, évitez le contact avec
les pièces mobiles du mécanisme éjecteur,
ou avec l’élément chauffant situé à la partie
inférieure de la machine à glaçons. Ne posez
pas les doigts ou les mains sur le mécanisme
de la machine à glaçons pendant que le
réfrigérateur est branché.
DANGER: RISQUES POUR LES ENFANTS
Les enfants pris au piège ou morts d’asphyxie sont
toujours d’actualité. Les appareils de réfrigération
abandonés sont toujours aussi dangereux, même
si on n’attend que “quelque jours” pour s’en
débarasser. Si vous ne gardez pas votre ancien
appareil, veuillez suivre les directives ci-dessous
afin de prévenir les accidents.
Avant de vous débarasser de votre vieux
appareil de réfrigération :
• Démontez les portes.
• Laissez les clayettes en place afin d’empêcher
les enfants de grimper à l’intérieur.
RÉFRIGÉRANTS
Tous les appareils de réfrigération contiennent
des refrigerants qui, conformément aux lois
fédérales, doivent être enlevés avant toute
élimination de l’appareil.
Si vous vous débarrassez de vieux appareils de
réfrigération, vérifiez, auprès de la société qui
s’occupe de leur élimination, ce que vous
devez faire.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove
the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
For personal safety, this appliance must be
properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet
to minimize the possibility of electric shock
hazard from this appliance.
This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight
out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power cords
that have become frayed or otherwise damaged.
Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion
damage along its length or at either end.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded.
When moving the refrigerator away from the
wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power
cord.
Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your personal responsibility
and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which has
a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.
USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS (Adapter plugs not permitted in Canada)
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the
use of an adapter plug.
If the adapter ground terminal breaks, DO NOT
USE the appliance until a proper ground has been
established.
However, if you must use an adapter, where local
codes permit, a temporary connection may be
made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall outlet
by use of a UL-listed adapter available at most
local hardware stores.
Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a wall
outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance
unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated,
and the wall outlet is grounded through the house
wiring. You should have the circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with
the larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper
polarity in the connection of the power cord.
When disconnecting the power cord from the
adapter, always hold the adapter in place with one
hand while pulling the power cord plug with the
other hand. If this is not done, the adapter ground
terminal is very likely to break with repeated use.
Use of an adapter plug will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the appliance.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the
use of an extension cord.
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 3-wire
grounding type appliance extension cord having
a grounding type plug and outlet and that the
electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes
(minimum) and 120 volts.

MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES
RACCORDEMENT ÉLECTRIQUE
Ne coupez ni retirez en aucun cas la troisième
broche (mise à la terre) de la fiche du cordon
d’alimentation. Pour votre sécurité, cet appareil
doit être correctement mis à la terre.
Le cordon d’alimentation de cet appareil est
muni d’une fiche à 3 broches (mise à la terre)
qui se branche dans une prise mural ordinaire
à 3 alvéoles (mise à la terre) pour réduire au
minimum les risques du chocs électriques.
Faites examiner la prise de courant et le circuit
par un électricien qualifié pour vous assurer
que la prise est correctement mise à la terre.
Si la prise murale est du type standard à
2 alvéoles, il vous incombe de la faire remplacer par
une prise à 3 alvéoles correctement mise
à la terre.
La machine à glaçons doit toujours être
branché dans sa propre prise de courant,
dont la tension nominale est identique
à celle indiquée sur la plaque signalétique.
Cette précaution est recommandée pour garantir
un rendement optimum et éviter une surcharge des
circuits électriques de la résidence, ce qui pourrait
créer un risque d’incendie par surschauffe des fils.
Ne débranchez jamais l’appareil en tirant le cordon
d’alimentation. Saisissez fermement
la fiche du cordon et tirez droit pour la retirer
de la prise.
Réparez ou remplacez immédiatement tout cordon
effiloché ou endommagé. N’utilisez
pas un cordon fendillé ou présentant des signes
d’usure.
Lorsque vous déplacez l’appareil du mur, faites
attention de ne pas la faire rouler sur le cordon
d’alimentation afin de ne pas l’endommager.
FICHE D’ADAPTATION (Fiches d’adaptation non permises au Canada)
Nous vous recommandons fortement de ne
pas utiliser une fiche d’adaptation à cause des
risques potentiels qu’elle présente dans certaines
circonstances.
Toutefois, si vous décidez d’utiliser tout de même
une fiche d’adaptation, vous pouvez effectuer un
raccordement temporaire, si les codes locaux le
permettent, dans une prise de courant à 2 alvéoles
adéquatement mise à la terre en utilisant une fiche
d’adaptation homologuée UL, en vente dans la
plupart des quincailleries.
La fente la plus longue de la fiche doit être
alignée avec la fente la plus longue de la prise
murale afin d’assurer la polarité appropriée pour le
branchement du cordon d’alimentation.
Lorsque vous débranchez le cordon d’alimentation
de la fiche d’adaptation, saisissez toujours la fiche
d’une main pendant que vous tirez sur la fiche du
cordon d’alimentation de l’autre. Sinon, la borne de
mise à la terre de la fiche d’adaptation risque de
casser avec le temps.
Si la borne de mise à la terre de la fiche casse,
N’UTILISEZ PAS l’appareil tant qu’une mise
à la terre adéquate n’aura pas été rétablie.
Le fait de fixer la borne de mise à la terre de la fiche
d’adaptation à la plaque de la prise de courant
n’assure pas automatiquement la mise à
la terre de l’appareil. Il faut que la vis soit en métal,
non isolée, et que la prise de courant soit mise à
la terre par l’entremise du câblage de résidence.
Faites vérifier le circuit par un électricien qualifié pour
vous assurer que la prise est adéquatement mise à
la terre.
CORDONS PROLONGATEURS
Nous vous recommandons fortement de ne pas
utíliser de cordons prolongateurs à cause des
risques potentiels qu’ils présentent dans certaines
conditions.
Toutefois si vous décidez d’utiliser tout de même un
cordon prolongateur, il est absolument nécessaire
qu’il s’agisse d’un cordon à 3 fils avec mise à la terre
pour appareils électroménagers homologué UL (aux
États-Unis) ou homologué CSA (au Canada), pourvu
d’une fiche et d’une prise mises à la terre de 15
ampères (minimum)
et de 120 volts.

Operating Instructions
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Temperature
controls
The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37°F for the
fresh food compartment and 0°F for the freezer compartment.
Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset
recommended settings.
The temperature controls can display both the SET temperature
as well as the actual temperature in the fresh food and freezer
compartments. The actual temperature may vary slightly from
the SET temperature based on usage and operating environment.
Setting either or both controls to OFF stops cooling in both the
freezer and fresh food compartments, but does not shut off
electrical power to the refrigerator.
NOTE: The refrigerator is shipped with protective film covering
the temperature controls. If this film was not removed during
installation, remove it now.
To change the temperature, press and release
the
(warmer) or
(colder) pad. The SET light
will come on and the
display will show the set temperature. To change
the temperature, tap either the
(warmer) or
(colder)
pad until the desired temperature is
displayed. Fresh food temperatures can be
adjusted between 34°F and 44°F and the freezer
temperatures can be adjusted between
-6°F and +6°F.
To turn the cooling system off, tap the
(warmer) pad for either the fresh food
compartment or the freezer until the display
shows OFF. To turn the unit back on, press the
(colder) pad for either the fresh food
compartment or freezer. The SET light will
illuminate on the side you selected. Then press
the
(colder) pad again (on the side where the
SET light is illuminated) and it will go to the
preset points of 0°F for the freezer and
37°F for the fresh food compartment.
Once the desired temperature has been set,
the temperature display will return to the
actual fresh food and freezer temperatures
after 5 seconds. Several adjustments may be
required. Each time you adjust controls,
allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach
the temperature you have set.
Performance
Air Flow
System
8
The Performance Air-Flow System is designed to
maximize temperature control in the fresh food
and freezer compartments. This unique special
feature consists of the Air Tower along the top
and back walls of the fresh food compartment
and the Air Tunnel on the bottom portion of the
freezer rear wall.
Placing food in front of the louvers on these
components will not affect performance.
Although the Air Tower and the Air Tunnel
can be removed, doing so will affect temperature
performance. (For removal instructions, on-line,
24 hours a day, contact
us at www.monogram.com or call 800.444.1845.
In Canada, call us at 1.800.561.3344.)
TurboCool™
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
How it works
TurboCool rapidly cools the
refrigerator compartment in
order to more quickly cool foods. Use
TurboCool when adding
a large amount of food to the
refrigerator compartment, putting away
foods after they have been sitting out at room
temperature
or when putting away warm leftovers. It can
also be used if the refrigerator has been
without power for an extended period.
Once activated, the compressor will turn on
immediately and the fans will cycle on and
off at high speed as needed for 8 hours.
The compressor will continue to run until
the refrigerator compartment cools to
approximately 34°F (1°C), then it will cycle
on and off to maintain this setting. After
8 hours, or if TurboCool is pressed again,
the refrigerator compartment will return to
the original setting.
How to use
1 Press TurboCool. The refrigerator temperature
display will show TC.
NOTES:
• The refrigerator temperature cannot be changed
during TurboCool.
2 After TurboCool is complete,
the refrigerator compartment
will return to the original setting.
• The freezer temperature is not affected during
TurboCool.
• When opening the refrigerator door during
TurboCool, the fans will continue to run if
they have cycled on.

CustomCool™
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
How it works
How to use
The CustomCool feature is a system of
dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor
and a heater. Depending on the function selected,
a combination of these will be
used to quickly chill items, thaw items or
hold the pan at a specific temperature.
The pan is tightly sealed to prevent the pan’s
temperature from causing temperature
fluctuations in the rest of the refrigerator.
1 Empty the pan. Place the Chill/Thaw tray
in the pan. Place the items on the tray and
close the pan completely.
NOTE: For food safety reasons, it is recommended
that foods be wrapped in plastic wrap when using
ExpressThaw. This will help contain meat juices
and improve thawing performance.
2 Select the ExpressThaw,™ ExpressChill™
or SelectTemp™ pad. The display and SET
light will come on. Tap the pad until the light
appears next to the desired setting. Use the
chart to determine the best setting to use.
The controls for this pan are located at the
top of the fresh food compartment with the
temperature controls.
• To stop a feature before it is finished, tap that
feature’s pad until no options are selected and
the display is off.
• During ExpressThaw and ExpressChill,
the display on the controls will count down the
time in the cycle.
ExpressThaw ™
• After the ExpressThaw cycle is complete,
the pan will reset to the MEAT setting (31°F) to
help preserve thawed items until they
are used.
• The displayed actual temperature of the
CustomCool pan may vary slightly from
the SET temperature based on usage and
operating environment.

Additional Features
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Refrigerator
doors
The refrigerator doors may feel different than the
ones you are used to. The special door opening/
closing feature makes sure the doors close all the
way and are securely sealed.
When opening and closing the door you will
notice a stop position. If the door is opened past
this stop point, the door will remain open to allow
you to load and unload food more easily. When
the door is only partially open,
it will automatically close.
The resistance you feel at the stop position will be
reduced as the door is loaded with food.
When the door is only partially open,
it will automatically close.
Beyond this stop the door will stay open.
Door

The bottom drawer has a cover that slides back
as the drawer is opened. This allows full access to
the drawer. As the drawer is closed, the cover will
slide forward into its original position.
Set the control to cold to convert the pan to
normal refrigerator temperature and provide
extra vegetable storage space. The cold air duct
is turned off. Variable settings between these
extremes can be selected.
Crispers can easily be removed by pulling the
drawer straight out and lifting the drawer up and
over the stop location.
If the door prevents you from taking out the
drawers, first try to remove the door bins.
If this does not offer enough clearance, the
refrigerator will need to be rolled forward

Automatic Icemaker
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Automatic
icemaker
NOTE: A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.
The icemaker will produce seven cubes
SHUF\FOH³DSSUR[LPDWHO\²FXEHV
in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer
compartment temperature, room temperature,
number of door openings and other use
conditions.
Icemaker
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
connection is made to the icemaker, set the
power switch in the OFF position.
When the refrigerator has been connected to the
water supply, set the power switch to the
ON position.
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to
15°F (–10°C). A newly installed refrigerator may
take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.
Power Switch
Feeler Arm
You will hear a buzzing sound each time the
icemaker fills with water.
Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow
the water line to clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of
the feeler arm.
To access ice or reach
the power switch:
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm,
the icemaker will stop producing ice. It is normal
for several cubes to be joined together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will
become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.
Special notes:
• Dispenser models have a tilt-out ice bin.
The bin can be tilted out as shown in the
illustrations, and it will hold itself up while you
take ice out or turn the icemaker power switch
on and off. Be sure to put the bin
back in place before closing the door.
1 Lift the bin, then pull it
forward until the bin stops.
• To restore your ice level from an empty bucket
stage, the following steps are recommended:
1 12 hours after the first batch of ice has
fallen into the bin, dispense 3 to 4 cubes.
2 After an additional 6 hours, dispense
3 to 4 cubes again.
These steps will restore your ice level in the
shortest amount of time.
2 Lower the bin to access ice or
reach the power switch.
NOTE: In order to take full
advantage of the tilt-out ice bin,
only store items on the shelf below
the ice bin that are no taller than
the lowest point on the bin.

Important
facts about
the dispenser
Quick Ice
When you need ice in a hurry,
press this pad to speed up ice
production. This will increase
ice production for the following 48
hours or until you press the pad
again.
Door Alarm
To set the alarm, press this pad
until the indicator light comes on.
This alarm will sound if either door
is open for more than
3 minutes. The light goes out
and the beeping stops when you
close the door.
• Do not add ice from trays or bags to
the storage drawer. It may not crush or
dispense well.
• To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass,
put the glass close to, but not touching, the
dispenser opening.
• Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of
narrow glasses. Backed-up ice can jam the
chute or cause the door in the chute to
freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute,
poke it through with a wooden spoon.
• Some crushed ice may be dispensed even
though you selected CUBED ICE. This happens
occasionally when a few cubes accidentally get
directed to the crusher.
• Beverages and foods should not be
quick-chilled in the ice storage drawer.
Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage drawer may cause the icemaker
or auger to jam.
• After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may
drip from the chute.
• Sometimes a small mound of snow will form on
the door in the ice chute. This condition
is normal and usually occurs when you have
dispensed crushed ice repeatedly. The snow
will eventually evaporate.

stainless steel.
Use of any cleaning solution other than that
which is recommended, especially those that
contain petroleum distillates, can crack or
damage the interior of the refrigerator.
Avoid cleaning cold glass shelves with hot
water because the extreme temperature
difference
may cause them to break. Handle glass shelves
carefully. Bumping tempered glass can cause
it to shatter.
Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in
the dishwasher.
The Chill/Thaw tray is dishwasher safe.

Care and Cleaning
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Behind the
refrigerator
Be careful when moving the refrigerator away
from the wall. All types of floor coverings can be
damaged, particularly cushioned coverings and
those with embossed surfaces.
When pushing the refrigerator back, make sure
you don’t roll over the power cord or icemaker
supply line.
Pull the refrigerator straight out and return it
to position by pushing it straight in. Moving the
refrigerator in a side direction may result in
damage to the floor covering or refrigerator.
Preparing
for vacation
For long vacations or absences, remove food and
unplug the refrigerator. Clean the interior with a
baking soda solution of one tablespoon (15 ml) of
baking soda to one quart (1 liter)
of water. Leave the doors open.
If the temperature can drop below freezing,
have a qualified servicer drain the water supply
system to prevent serious property damage due
to flooding.
Set the icemaker power switch to the OFF
position and shut off the water supply to
the refrigerator.
Preparing
to move
Secure all loose items such as shelves and
drawers by taping them securely in place
to prevent damage.
Be sure the refrigerator stays in an upright
position during moving.
When using a hand truck to move the
refrigerator, do not rest the front or back
of the refrigerator against the hand truck.
This could damage the refrigerator. Handle only
from the sides of the refrigerator.

The Problem Solver
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Normal
operating
sounds
Newer refrigerators sound different from older refrigerators. Modern refrigerators have more
features and use newer technology.
Do you hear what I hear? These sounds are normal.
HUMMM...
WHOOSH...
• The new high efficiency compressor may run
faster and longer than your old refrigerator
and you may hear a high-pitched hum or
pulsating sound while it is operating.
• Sometimes the refrigerator runs for an
extended period, especially when the doors
are opened frequently. This means that the
Frost Guard ™ feature is working to prevent
freezer burn and improve food preservation.
• You may hear a whooshing sound when the
doors close. This is due to pressure equalizing
within the refrigerator.
• You may hear the fans spinning at high
speeds. This happens when the refrigerator
is first plugged in, when the doors are opened
frequently or when a large amount of food is
added to the refrigerator or
freezer compartments. The fans are helping to
maintain the correct temperatures.
• If either door is open for over 3 minutes, you
may hear the fans come on in order to cool the
light bulbs.
• The fans change speeds in order to provide
optimal cooling and energy savings.
• You may hear the fans running after selecting
one of the CustomCool™ settings.
CLICKS, POPS,
CRACKS and CHIRPS
• You may hear cracking or popping sounds
when the refrigerator is first plugged in.
This happens as the refrigerator cools to
the correct temperature.
• Electronic dampers click open and closed to
provide optimal cooling and energy savings.
• The compressor may cause a clicking or
chirping sound when attempting to restart (this
could take up to 5 minutes).
• The electronic control board may cause
a clicking sound when relays activate to
control refrigerator components.
• Expansion and contraction of cooling coils
during and after defrost can cause a cracking
or popping sound.
• After an icemaking cycle, you may hear the ice
cubes dropping into the ice bucket.
WATER SOUNDS
• The flow of refrigerant through the freezer
cooling coils may make a gurgling noise like
boiling water.
• Water dropping on the defrost heater can
cause a sizzling, popping or buzzing sound
during the defrost cycle.
• A water dripping noise may occur during the
defrost cycle as ice melts from the evaporator
and flows into the drain pan.
• Closing the door may cause a gurgling sound
due to pressure equalization.
For additional information on normal
icemaker and dispenser operating
sounds, see the Automatic Icemaker
and Ice and Water Dispenser
sections.
