This appliance is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug for your protection against possible
electrical shock hazards. It must be plugged into a
grounding receptacle. Where a standard two-prong
wall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal
responsibility and obligation of the customer to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall
receptacle. Do not under any circumstances, cut or
remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.

Note
• Energy rating guides that are posted on the
refrigerator at the time of purchase do not include
optional ice maker energy usage.
Some models are automatic ice maker ready. The
number of the appropriate ice maker kit is IC10S. The
kit contains installation instructions and water
connection
instructions.
Other models have a factory installed ice maker.
Connect the ice maker to the water supply as
instructed on page 5. Proper water flow and a level
refrigerator are essential for optimal ice maker
performance.
Operating
If the ice is not used frequently, the ice cubes will
become cloudy, shrink, stick together and taste stale.
Empty the ice storage bin periodically and wash it in
lukewarm water. Be sure to dry the bin thoroughly
before replacing it.
Beverages and foods should not be placed in the ice
storage bin for quick chilling. These items can block
the sensor arm, causing the ice maker to
malfunction.
• Turn off (arm up) the ice maker when the water
supply is to be shut off for several hours.
To Remove the Ice Bin:
• Pull it forward, away from the ice maker. To avoid the
ice maker dumping ice while the bin is removed, turn
the ice maker off by raising the sensor arm.
Instructions
To Install the Ice Bin:
• Confim] ice bin is in place and ice maker arm is
down.
• After freezer section reaches
between 0° to 2° F (-18 ° to -17 ° C),
ice maker fills with water and
begins operating. You will have a

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.

Sounds
Improvements
in refrigeration
design may produce sounds in your new refrigerator
that are different
or were not
present in an older model. These improvements were made to create a refrigerator that is better at preserving food,
is more energy efficient, and is quieter overall. Because new units run quieter, sounds may be detected that were
present in older units, but were masked by higher sound levels. Many of these sounds are normal. Please note that
the surfaces adjacent to a refrigerator, such as hard walls, floors and cabinetry may make these sounds seem even
louder. The following are some of the normal sounds that may be noticed in a new refrigerator.
