Use caution when removing. 1. Turn filter counterclockwise filter head. until it releases from 2. Drain water from filter into sink, and dispose in normal household trash. 3. Wipe up excess water in filter cover and continue with Initial Installation, steps 2 and 4. The filter should be changed at least every 12 months. IMPORTANT: Condition of water and amount used determines life span of water filter cartridge. If water use is high, or if water is of poor quality, replacement may need to take place more often. To purchase a replacement water filter cartridge, contact your dealer or call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or 1-800-688-8/408 Canada. The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter cartridge. If you choose this option, replace filter with blue bypass cap. Initial Installation The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the fresh food compartment. 1. Remove blue bypass cap and retain for later use. 2. Remove sealing label from end of filter and insert into filter head. 3. Rotate gently clockwise until filter stops. Snap filter cover closed. /4. Reduce water spurts by flushing air from system. Run water continuously for two minutes through dispenser until water runs steady. During initial use, allow about a one- to two-minute delay in water dispersal to allow internal water tank to fill. • Additional flushing may be required in some households where water is of poor quality. 2O WaterFilter System Specification Refrigerator and Performance Water Filter Cartridge Data Sheet Model UKF8OO1AXX Specifications Service Flow Rate (Maximum) ............................................. 0.78 GPM (2.9 L/min) Rated Service Life UKF8001AXX-750 (Maximum) ......750 gallons/2838 Maximum Operating Temperature ..................................... 100° F/38 ° C Pen_PuFe liters 1000 Apollo Road Eagan, Minnesota 55121-2240 651.450.4913 EPA EST #35917-MN-1 Minimum Pressure Requirement ........................................ 35 psi/241 kPA Minimum Operating Temperature ...................................... 33 ° F/l° C Maximum Operating Pressure ............................................. 120 psi/ 827 kPA Performance 100834/B Data Standard No. 42: Aesthetic Effects USEPA MCL Parameter Influent Challenge Chlorine 2.0 mg/L ± Effluent Influent Concentration Average 10% Average 1.88 mg/L <0.05136364 mg/L % Reduction Maximum Average Minimum Min.

To check the optimum temperature of 37° F (3° C). To check the temperature, place an appliance thermometer in a glass of water and place in the center of the refrigerator. Check after 24 hours. If the temperature is above 40 ° F (4° C) adjust the controls as explained on pages 10, 11 and 12. • Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves. This reduces the circulation of air around the food and results in uneven cooling. • Storage in the crisper drawers traps humidity to help preserve the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time periods (see page 14). 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). vegetables well before storing. Drain • Wait to wash fresh produce until right before use. • A freezer operates more efficiently two-thirds full. when it is at least Packaging Foods for Freezing containers. Force as much air out of the packages as possible and be sure they are tightly sealed.

These foods are best stored in the freezer interior where the • Occasionally mold will develop on the surface of hard cheeses (Swiss, Cheddar, Parmesan). Cut off at least an inch around and below the moldy area. Keep your knife or instrument out of the mold itself. Do not try to save individual cheese slices, soft cheese, cottage cheese, cream, sour cream or yogurt when mold appears. Dairy Food • 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. 23 the control as described on pages 10, 11 and 12.
