Water
Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of
a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827
kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 psi (276 kPa).
2. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water
dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds.
Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow,
continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5
seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has
been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water
dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use.
Additional flushing may be required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out
of the dispenser.
3. Open the freezer door and turn on the ice maker. Move the
switch to the ON (left) position.
• Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 psi (276 kPa):

must meet local plumbing code requirements.
A cold water supply with water pressure between 30 and 120 psi
(207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water dispenser and
ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure, see
Troubleshooting or call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Reverse
Ice
•
Discard the first three batches of ice produced.
•
Depending on your model, you may want to select the
maximum ice feature to increase the production of ice.
Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
Style 2 - Non-Dispenser
•
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, fill and discard two full containers of
ice to prepare the water filter for use, before using the ice:
•
If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce
the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See Replacing the
Water Filter on page 14.

Normal Operating Sounds
Setting the Controls
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one
didn't make. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be
concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces, such as the floor, walls and cabinets, can make the
sounds seem louder. The following describes the kinds of sounds
and what may be making them.
The control panel is located inside the refrigerator compartment
on the ceiling.
•
•
•
IMPORTANT:
The refrigerator control adjusts the refrigerator compartment
temperature. The freezer control adjusts the freezer
compartment temperature.
If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker, you will hear
a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the ice
maker for each cycle.
Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep
your food items at the desired temperatures and to minimize
energy usage. The high efficiency compressor and fans may
cause your refrigerator to run longer than your old one. You
may also hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound from the
compressor or fans adjusting to optimize performance.
You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating air through
the refrigerator and freezer compartments. The fan speed may
increase as you open the doors or add warm food.
•
Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant, the
water line or items stored on top of the refrigerator.
•
Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle
may cause a sizzling sound.
•
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the
refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
•
Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause a
popping noise.
•
You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the
condenser fan.
Wait 24 hours after you turn on the refrigerator before you put
food into it. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer controls to a
lower (colder) setting will not cool the compartments any
faster.
•
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 before adjusting the controls.
•
The preset settings 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.
•
The actual temperature may differ from the display when a
door is open for an extended period of time.
NOTE: The factory recommended settings are 0°F (-18°C) for the
freezer and 37°F (3°C) for the refrigerator.
Turning the Refrigerator
On or Off
•
Press and hold the POWER ON-OFF key for 2 seconds.
When the refrigerator comes on, the freezer and refrigerator
temperature displays will light.
•
To turn the refrigerator off, press and hold the POWER
ON-OFF key for 2 seconds. The freezer and refrigerator
temperature displays will go dark when the refrigerator is off.
You may hear water running into the drain pan during the
defrost cycle.
Ensuring...Proper Air Circulation
In order to ensure proper temperatures, you need to permit
airflow between the two sectJons. Cold air enters the bottom of
the freezer section and moves up. It then enters the refrigerator
sectJon through the top vent. Air then returns to the freezer as
shown.
Do not block any airflow vents. If the vents are blocked, airflow
will be obstructed and temperature and moisture problems may
occur.
IMPORTANT: Because air
circulates between both sections,
any odors formed in one section
wilt 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.
NOTE:
After the refrigerator is turned on, the over temperature audio
alarm and indicator light wilt activate every 1½ hours until the
refrigerator and freezer temperatures are below 48°F (9°C)
and 15°F (-9°C), respectively, or until the alarm is turned off.
To turn off the audio alarm and indicator light, see Master
Alarm Reset on page 7.

Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice.
Failure to do so can result in cuts.
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed ice,
a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a lock
option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
NOTE:
•
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill water.
•
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Before using
the ice, flit and discard three full containers of ice to prepare
the filter for use.
•
The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
To Dispense Water:
Water and Ice Dispensers (continued) ..............................
The Ice Dispenser
1. Press a sturdy glass against
the water dispenser lever.
Ice dispenses from the Joe maker storage bin in the freezer. When
the dispenser lever is pressed:
2. Remove the glass to stop
dispensing.
•
A trap door opens in a chute between the dispenser and the
ice bin. Ice moves from the bin and falls through the chute.
•
When you release the dispenser lever, the trap door closes
and the Joe dispensing stops. The dispensing system will not
operate when the freezer door is open.
NOTE: Water may have an
off-flavor if you do not use the
dispenser periodically. Dispense
enough water every week to
maintain a fresh supply.
Some models dispense both cubed and
crushed ice. Before dispensing ice, select
which type of Joe you prefer. The key
controls are designed for easy use and
cleaning.
For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before
they are dispensed. This may cause a slight
delay when dispensing crushed ice. Noise from the ice crusher is
normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size. When changing from
crushed to cubed, a few ounces of crushed ice will be dispensed
along with the first cubes.
To Dispense
Ice:
1. Press button for the desired
type of ice.
2. Press a sturdy glass against
the ice dispenser lever.
Hold the glass close to the
dispenser opening so ice does
not fall outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need
to apply a lot of pressure to the lever in order to activate the
ice dispenser. Pressing hard will not make the ice dispense
faster or in greater quantities.
3,
Dispenser Light
The dispenser area has a light. It can be
turned on manually by pressing the ON key
(touch pad or rocker switch).
Whenever you use the dispenser, the lever
wilt automatically turn the light on also.
NOTE: See page 13 for information on
changing the dispenser light bulb.

The dispenser can be turned off for easy
cteanJng or to avoid unJntentional dispensing
by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off
power to the refrigerator, to the Jce maker, or
to the dispenser tight. It simply deactivates
the dispenser levers.
•
To turn off the dispenser, press the LOCK key. The indicator
wilt appear above the LOCK key and the ice and water
dispensers wilt not work.
•
To unlock the dispenser, press the UNLOCK key until the
indicator appears. Then continue to dispense ice or water as
usual.
Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
The Water
Dispenser
If you did not flush the water
system when the refrigerator
was first installed, use a sturdy
container to depress and hold
the water dispenser lever for
5 seconds, then release it for
5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water begins
to flow, continue depressing and
releasing the dispenser lever
(5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until
a total of 3 gal. (12L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from
the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter
for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
The water you draw and discard cleans the system and helps
clear air from the lines. Allow several hours for the refrigerator to
cool down and chill water.
IMPORTANT: Depending on your model, the small removable tray
at the bottom of the dispenser is designed to catch small spills
and allow for easy cleaning. There is no drain in the tray. The tray
can be removed from the dispenser and carried to the sink to be
emptied or cleaned.

IMPORTANT:
2. To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left)
position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice
maker sensors wilt automatically stop ice production, but the
control wilt remain in the ON (left) position.
•
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Allow 3 days
to completely fill ice container. Before using the ice, fill and
discard two full containers of ice to prepare the filter for use.
•
The quality of your ice wilt be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker.
•
Avoid connecting the ice maker to a softened water supply.
•
Water softener chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of
the ice maker and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water
supply cannot be avoided, make sure the water softener is
operating properly and is well maintained.
•
It is normal for the ice cubes to be attached at the corners.
•
They will break apart easily.
•
For non-dispensing models, do not force the ice maker wire
shutoff arm up or down.
•
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin/bucket.

2. Replace the cover by holding the glass shelf firmly with both
hands, tilt the shelf at an angle and position it above the
support rails. Place shelf gently on support rails on side wall.
The shelves and compartments in your refrigerator are adjustable
and/or removable to meet your individual storage needs and to
make them easier to clean.
Storing similar food items together in your refrigerator and
adjusting the shelves compartments to fit different heights of
items wilt make finding the exact item you want easier. It wilt also
reduce the amount of time the refrigerator door is open, and help
save energy.

Door Utility Bin
Fresh Food Storage Information
The utility bin can be placed in any position on the refrigerator
door.
•
The fresh food compartment of a refrigerator should be kept
between 34°-40°F (1°-4°C) with an optimum temperature of
37°F (3°C).
•
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves. This reduces
the circulation of air around the food and results in uneven
cooling.
To remove
and replace
the utility
bin:
1. Remove the utility bin by grasping both ends and lifting
compartment up and out.
2.
Replace the bin by sliding it in above the desired support and
pushing it down until it stops.
Fruits
and Vegetables
•
Storage in the crisper drawers traps humidity to help preserve
the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time periods.
•
Sort fruits and vegetables before storage and use bruised or
soft items first. Discard those showing signs of decay.
•
Always wrap odorous foods such as onions and cabbage so
the odor does not transfer to other foods.
•
While vegetables need a certain amount of humidity to remain
fresh, too much humidity can shorten storage times (especially
leafy vegetables). Drain vegetables welt before storing.
•
Wait to wash fresh produce until right before use.
Meat and Cheese
Gallon
Door Bin
•
Raw meat and poultry should be wrapped securely so leakage
and contamination of other foods or surfaces does not occur.
•
Occasionally mold wilt develop on the surface of hard cheeses
(Swiss, Cheddar, Parmesan). Discard cheese that is moldy.
The adjustable gallon door bin can hold gallon size containers.
To install

3. Adjust other bins, as necessary to allow for milk or beverage
container height.
Standard
Most dairy foods such as milk, yogurt, sour cream and cottage
cheese have freshness dates on their cartons for appropriate
length of storage. Store these foods in the original carton and
refrigerate immediately after purchasing and after each use.

Freezer Baskets
Power Interruptions
The freezer baskets can be used to store bags of frozen fruits and
vegetables that may slide off freezer shelves.
If the power wilt be out for 24 hours or tess, keep the door or
doors closed to help food stay cold and frozen.
To remove
If the power will be out for more than 24 hours, do one of the
following:
and replace
a freezer
basket:
1. Pull the basket straight out to the stop.
2. Lift the front of the basket and slide it out the rest of the way.
Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food locker.
3. Replace the basket by positioning it on the side walt guide
rails. Lift the basket front slightly while pushing it past the
guide rail stops and slide basket in the rest of the way.
Place 2 tbs (907 g) of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic foot
(28 L) of freezer space. This will keep the food frozen for 2 to
4 days.
•
If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available, consume or
can perishable food at once.
IMPORTANT: A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods. If you see that food contains ice crystals, it may be
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected. If the
condition of the food is poor, dispose of it.
Vacation Care
Your refrigerator is equipped with the Holiday mode, which is
designed for the traveler who wishes to turn off the lights and
ice maker. By selecting this feature, the temperature settings
remain unchanged, the ice maker will be disabled and the interior
lights will turn off. For most efficient refrigerator operation, it is
recommended to exit the Holiday mode when it is no longer
required.

4. Empty the ice bin.
To minimize dehydration and quality deterioration use
aluminum foil, freezer wrap, freezer bags or airtight containers.
Force as much air out of the packages as possible and be
sure they are tightly sealed. Trapped air can cause the food to
dry out, change color and develop an off-flavor (freezer burn).

Information
Remove all food from the refrigerator.
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
• Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
the Freezer
Avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer at one time.
This overloads the freezer, slows the rate of freezing and can
raise the temperature of frozen foods.
• When the last toad of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position.
•
Leave space between the packages so cold air can circulate
freely, allowing food to freeze as quickly as possible.
3. Turn the power off. See Turning the Refrigerator
On or Off on page 5.
•
Avoid storing hard-to-freeze foods such as ice cream and
orange juice on the freezer door shelves. These foods are
best stored in the freezer interior where the temperature varies
less with door openings.
4. Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry welt.
5. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both
doors to prop them open far enough for air to get
in. This stops odor and mold from building up.
