horizontal position.
•
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system.
2.
Use a sturdy container to depress the water dispenser bar
until the water begins to flow. Flush the water system by
dispensing and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water.
Cleaning the system will take approximately 6 to 7 minutes
and will help clear air from the line. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.

In order to ensure proper temperatures, you need to permit air to
flow between the two sections. Cold air enters the bottom of the
freezer section and moves up. It then enters the refrigerator
section through the top vent. Air then returns to the freezer as
shown.

Depending on your model, you may want to select the
maximum ice feature to increase the production of ice.
Nomsa So snds
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.
•
Do not block any of these vents with food such as soda, cereal,
bread, etc. If the vents are blocked, airflow will be prevented and
the temperature controls will not function properly.
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 prevent
odor transfer from food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
If your product 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.

Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer Controls to a
higher (colder) setting will not cool the compartments any
faster.
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 accidental dispensing.
The ice dispenser
Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer. When
the dispenser lever is pressed:
•
A trap door opens in a chute between the dispenser and the
ice bin. Ice moves from the bin and falls through the chute.
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.
•
When you release the dispenser lever, the trap door closes
and the ice dispensing stops. The dispensing system will not
operate when the freezer door is open.
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.
Some models dispense both cubed and crushed ice. Before
dispensing ice, select which type of ice you prefer. The button
controls are designed for easy use and cleaning.
•
Adjusting Rotary Controls
If you need to adjust temperatures, adjust the refrigerator
temperature first.
NOTE: Wait at least 24 hours between adjustments and then recheck the temperatures.

NOTE: The first few batches of ice may have an off-flavor
from new plumbing and parts. Throw the ice away. Also, take
large amounts of ice from the ice bin, not through the
dispenser.
The water dispenser
If you did not flush the water system when the refrigerator was
first installed, press the water dispenser bar with a glass or jar
until you draw and discard 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) or approximately
6 to 7 minutes of water after water begins dispensing. It will take
3 to 4 minutes for the water to begin dispensing. 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.
The dispenser lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
accidental dispensing by small children and pets. To turn off the
dispenser, press the LOCK button. The indicator will appear
above the LOCK button and the ice and water dispensers will not
work. To unlock the dispenser, press the UNLOCK button until
the indicator appears. Then continue to dispense ice or water as
usual.

cap clockwise to a horizontal position. Flush the water
system (see "Flushing the Water System After Replacing
Filter" later in this section).
To increase ice production rate:
Normal Ice Production: In normal ice production mode, the
ice maker should produce approximately 7 to 9 batches of ice
in a 24-hour period. If ice is not being made fast enough, turn
the Freezer Control toward a higher (colder) number in half
number steps. (For example, if the control is at 3, move it to
between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours between each increase.
12
Maximum Ice Production (on some models): In maximum
ice production, the ice maker should produce approximately
10 to 14 batches of ice in a 24-hour period. If your refrigerator
has the maximum ice production feature, push the switch to
MAX.

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.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when removing them to avoid impact from dropping.
Your model may have glass or wire shelves. Store similar foods
together and adjust the shelves to fit different heights. This
reduces the time the refrigerator door is open and saves energy.
Slide-out Shelves (on some models)

The convertible vegetable/meat drawer can be adjusted to
properly chill meats or vegetables. The air inside the pan is
cooled to prevent "spot" freezing and can be set to keep meats
at the National Livestock and Meat Board recommended storage
temperatures of 28 °- 32°F (-2 °- O°C).
IMPORTANT: To extend freshness, wrap meats in airtight,
moisture-proof materials before storing. Always store meat as
recommended.
Adjusting
the control
The convertible control comes preset at the lowest meat setting.
To change a control setting: Move the control to the right
(colder) or to the left (less cold) as desired.
To store vegetables: Set the control to VEG (all the way to the
left) to store vegetables at their optimal storage temperatures
(which need to be warmer than those for meat).
IMPORTANT: If food starts to freeze, move the control to the left
(less cold). Remember to wait 24 hours between adjustments.
Doing so gives the temperature of the food time to change.
Meat storage guide
Store most meat in original wrapping as long as it is airtight and
moisture-proof. Rewrap if necessary. See the following chart for
storage times. When storing meat longer than the times given,
freeze the meat.
Fresh fish or shellfish .................. use same day as purchased
Chicken, ground beef, variety meat (liver, etc.) ......... 1-2 days

Frozen food storage guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof), and the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside
a sealed package are normal. This simply means that moisture in
the food and air inside the package have condensed, creating ice
crystals.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 Ibs. of food per cubic foot
[907-1,350 g per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the
freezer for air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave
enough room for the door to close tightly.
For more information on preparing food for freezing, check a
freezer guide or reliable cookbook.

Are the condenser coils dirty? This prevents air transfer and
makes the motor work harder. Clean the condenser coils.
Refer to the "Cleaning" section.
Are the door gaskets not sealed all the way around?
Contact a technician or other qualified person.
Does the freezer and ice bin or bucket need to be
cleaned? See the "Cleaning" or "Ice Maker and Storage Bin/
Bucket" section.
•
Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
•
Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
•
Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator?
Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.
NOTE: Your new refrigerator will run longer than your old one
due to its high-efficiency motor.

is not producing
ice or not enough
ice
Has the ice maker just been installed? Wait 72 hours for full
ice production to begin. Once your refrigerator is cooled, the
ice maker should produce 70 to 120 cubes every 24 hours.
Is the freezer temperature cold enough to produce ice?
Wait 24 hours after ice maker hook-up for ice production. See
the "Setting or Using the Controls" section.
Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm in the OFF (arm up)
position (on some models)? Lower the wire shutoff arm to
the ON (arm down) position. See the "Ice Maker and Storage
Bin/Bucket" section.
Is the ice maker switch in the OFF (right) position (on
some models)? Move ice maker switch to the ON (left)
position. See the "Ice Maker and Storage Bin/Bucket"
section.
Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned
on? Turn on the water valve. See the "Water Supply
Connection" section.
Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on. See the "Water Supply Connection" section.
The ice dispenser
will not operate
properly
Is the freezer door closed completely? Push the door firmly
shut. If it will not shut all the way, see "The doors will not
close completely" later in this section.
Is the ice bin or bucket installed correctly? For models
with an interior ice bin, push the ice bin in all the way. If the
ice bin does not go in all the way, it may not be put in straight.
Pull it out and try again. For models with an ice bucket
located on the freezer door, the bucket should sit level. To
remove the bucket, press the release button on the right side
of the bucket and lift straight up. Replace the bucket in the
door making sure it is properly aligned and snapped securely
into place. Refer to the "Ice Maker and Storage Bin/Bucket"
section.
Has the wrong ice been added to the bin or bucket? Use
only cubes produced by the current ice maker. If other cubes
have been added, remove all cubes and check to see that
none have become stuck in the delivery chute.

•
Has the ice frozen in the ice bin or bucket? Shake the ice
bin or bucket to separate cubes. If cubes do not separate,
empty bin or bucket and wait 24 hours for ice to restock.
•
Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket? Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice bucket
completely. Allow 24 hours for the ice maker to restock. Do
not try to remove the melted ice with a sharp object. You
could damage the ice bucket.
•
Is ice stuck in the delivery chute? Clear the ice from the
delivery chute with a plastic utensil. Do not use anything
sharp to remove the ice. You could cause damage.
•
Water or ice is leaking from the dispenser
Is the glass not being held under the ice dispenser long
enough, causing the ice to spill? Hold the container under
the ice chute for two to three seconds after releasing the
dispenser lever. Water or ice may continue to dispense during
this time.
Is an ice cube stuck in the chute and holding the trap
door open? Remove the cube.
Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The
water filtration system may have air in the lines, causing water
to drip. Additional flushing may help clear air from the lines.
Normal dispenser use should flush air from the lines within 24
to 72 hours.
Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing "crushed"
ice? Stop dispensing ice. Change the ice button from
"crushed" to "cubed." Depress the ice dispenser arm using a
sturdy glass. If cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the
button for "crushed" ice and begin dispensing again. Refer to
the "Water and Ice Dispensers" section.
•
Is there ice in the bucket? See "The ice maker is not
producing ice" earlier in this section.
•
Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Release
dispenser arm. Ice will stop dispensing when the arm is held
in too long. Wait three minutes for dispenser motor to reset
before using again. It is best to take large amounts of ice
directly from the ice bin or bucket, not through the dispenser.
Ice bucket
difficult to remove
Is the ice bucket difficult to remove (on some models)?
For models with an ice bucket located on the freezer door,
select "cubed" ice. Using a sturdy glass, quickly depress and
release the ice dispenser arm. Open the freezer door, depress
the release button on the ice bucket and lift upward. Refer to
the "Ice Maker and Storage Bin/Bucket" section.

Has the water system not filled? The water system needs
to be filled the first time it is used. Use a sturdy container to
depress the water dispenser bar until the water begins to
flow. Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding
2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Cleaning the system will take
approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear air from the
line. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
See the "Water and Ice Dispensers" section.
Is the water shutoff valve not turned on or the water line
connected at the source? Make sure the water shutoff valve
is turned on and the water source is connected to the
refrigerator. See the "Water Supply Connection" section.
Is the water shutoff valve clogged or incorrectly installed?
See the "Water Supply Connection" section. If clogging or
installation is not a problem, call for service or contact a
plumber.
The warmth is probably due to normal operation of the
automatic exterior moisture control. If still concerned, call for
service.

Are the air vents blocked in either compartment? This
prevents the movement of cold air from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Remove any objects from in front of the air vents.
See the "Ensuring Proper Air Circulation" section for the
location of air vents.
•
Are the door(s) opened often? The refrigerator will warm
when this occurs. Keep the refrigerator cool by getting all
items out at one time, keeping food organized, and closing
the door as soon as possible.
•
Has a large amount of food just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer?. Adding a large amount of food
warms the refrigerator. It can take several hours for the
refrigerator to return to the normal temperature.
•
Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See the "Setting or Using the Controls" section.
•
Is the refrigerator not cooling? For models with digital
controls, turn the unit OFF then ON again to reset. See the
"Setting or Using the Controls" section. If this does not
correct the problem, call for service.

suspect a kink in the water line, call for service.
