8 Connecting The Water Supply
ABOUT YOUR REFRIGERATOR’S WATER SUPPLY
The automatic ice & water dispenser on your refrigerator requires a permanent
water supply to function correctly. During installation, you (or a service
professional) establish this water supply by connecting a copper tube from your
household water system to a valve at the rear of the refrigerator.
!
CA
UTION
CAUTION
To avoid property damage:
• Use copper tubing for the water supply line (plastic tubing is more
likely to leak). Manufacturer is not responsible for any damage if
plastic tubing is used for supply line.
• Ensure water supply complies with local plumbing codes.
• For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure
should fall between 1.4 and 6.9 bars. Excessive pressure may cause
water filter to malfunction.
What you will need:
• Access to a cold water line with pressure of 1.4-6.9 bars.
• The water connector kit that comes with your refrigerator, which provides all
materials for a water supply installation, including 7.6 m (25 feet) of copper
tubing.
To connect the water supply to the rear of your
refrigerator:
1 Ensure that the refrigerator is not plugged in.
2 Flush the supply line until water is clear by placing the
end of the copper tube in a sink or bucket and opening
the shut-off valve.
3 Unscrew the plastic cap from the water valve inlet at
the rear of your refrigerator. Discard the cap.
4 Slide the brass compression nut, then the ferrule
(sleeve) onto copper tube.
5 Push the copper tube into water valve inlet as far as it
will go (6.5mm).
6 Slide the ferrule (sleeve) into valve and finger-tighten
the compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half
turn with a wrench. Do not over-tighten.
7 Secure the copper tube to your refrigerator’s rear panel
with a steel clamp and screw (see illustration).

CA
UTION
CAUTION
Pushing the dispensing paddle in for more than 4 minutes may cause the dispenser motor
to overload and stop. The overload protector resets automatically after 3-4 minutes.
ICE DISPENSER OPERATION & CARE
The ice maker, ice bin, and dispenser feeding mechanism are located in the top of
the freezer compartment. After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled
for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. It can completely
fill an ice bin in about two days.
The ice maker produces 4-6 pounds of ice every 24 hours depending on usage
conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of 8 cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
The ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your
refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, turn the ice maker’s On/Off switch to Off.
Otherwise, the ice maker’s fill valve may be noisy when it attempts to operate without water.
Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Using The Ice Dispenser After Installation
Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system as
described earlier. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice
maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be
discolored or have an odd flavor.
Turning The Ice Dispenser On And Off
Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s On/Off
power switch. To access the On/Off power switch, slide ice
cream shelf straight out. Press the switch to the “O” position
to turn it Off and press to the “I” position to turn it On.
NO
TE
NOTE
The ice maker also has a built-in wire signal arm, which
automatically stops ice production when the ice bin is full. This
signal arm should not be used to manually stop the ice maker.
Ice Dispenser Tips
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor.
Empty the ice container as explained on the next
page.
• Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice separated.
• If your refrigerator is not connected to a water supply or the water supply is
turned off, turn off the ice maker by pressing the On/Off switch.
• If you need a large quantity of ice at one time, it is best to get cubes directly
from the ice container.
• The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating:
• Motor running
• Ice dropping into ice container
• Water valve opening or closing
• Ice loosening from tray
• Running water
• Turn off the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations.
• If you turn off the ice maker for a long period of time, you should also turn off
the water supply valve.

6 Replace the ice bin. Press the ice maker’s Off/On switch to resume ice
production.
Remove and empty the ice storage bin if:
• An extended power failure (one hour or longer) causes ice cubes in the ice
storage bin to melt and freeze together, jamming the dispenser mechanism.
• You do not use the ice dispenser frequently. Ice cubes will freeze together
in the bin, jamming the dispenser mechanism.
Remove the ice storage bin and shake to loosen the cubes or clean as explained
above. Never use an ice pick or similar sharp instrument to break up the ice. This
could damage the ice storage bin and dispenser mechanism.
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
When removing the ice bin, avoid rotating the auger inside the bin. The
auger must align with its drive mechanism when the bin is replaced. If
you accidentally move the auger, realign by making quarter turns until the
ice bin fits back in place.

information about these controls.
24 Changing The Filters
REPLACING THE WATER FILTER
In general, you should change the water filter every six to nine months to ensure
highest possible water quality. The Filter Status light on the dispenser control
panel prompts you to replace the filter after 1514 liters of water has flowed through
the system.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a period of time (during moving for
example), change the filter before reinstalling the refrigerator.
NO
TE
NOTE
The ice and water system can also operate without filtration if you use a bypass in place
of the water filter cartridge. Please contact the Electrolux Customer Care Center to order the
bypass component (Part No. 240396701).
More About Your Advanced Water Filter
The pure advantageTM or pure advantageplus Ice & Water Filter
System is tested and certified by NSF International, the nationally
respected, not-for-profit certification organization for public health
safety. The filter system is tested and certified to ANSI/NSF
Standards 42 and 53. See the performance data sheet that came with your
product for detailed specifications.
This system should not be used on water that is microbiologically unsafe or with
water of unknown quality unless the water has been adequately disinfected before
or after traveling through the filtration system. NSF Test & Certification Results:
• Rated Capacity - 1514 liters
• Rated service flow - 1.9 liters per minute
• Maximum Rated Pressure - 6.9 bars
• Maximum Operating Temp. - 37.8° C
To replace the water filter:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter. Be ready to wipe
up any small amounts of water released during the filter replacement. The bottom
of the filter housing includes two small water drainage holes, so be sure to remove
any stored food from the top shelf.
NO

should be flush with the filter release button.
6 Turn On the ice maker power switch (see page 23 for
more about turning on the ice maker).
7 Press a drinking glass against the water dispenser
while checking for any leaks at the filter housing. Any
spurts and sputters that occur as the system purges
air out of the dispenser system are normal.
8 After filling one glass of water, continue flushing the
system for about three minutes.
9 Press and hold the Filter Status button on the Ice &
Water Dispenser control panel for 3 seconds. The

Storing Food & Saving Energy
IDEAS FOR STORING FOODS
Fresh Food Storage
• Keep the fresh food compartment between 1.1° C and 4.4° C with an
optimum temperature of 2.8° C (see the earlier section for more information
about temperature settings).
• Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves, which reduces air circulation and
causes uneven cooling.
Fruits and Vegetables
• Store fruits and vegetables in crisper drawers, where trapped moisture helps
preserve food quality for longer time periods.
25
26 Storing Food & Saving Energy
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry securely so leakage and contamination of other
foods or surfaces does not occur.
• Use the meat keeper drawer for short term storage. Any meat to be kept
longer than two days should be frozen.
Frozen Food Storage
• Keep the freezer compartment at -18° C or lower (see the earlier section for
more information about temperature settings).
• A freezer operates most efficiently when it is at least 2/3 full.
Packaging Foods for Freezing
• To minimize food 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 seal them tightly. Trapped air can cause food to
dry out, change color, and develop an off-flavor (freezer burn).
• Wrap fresh meats and poultry with suitable freezer wrap prior to freezing.
• Do not refreeze meat that has completely thawed.
Loading the Freezer
• Avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer at one time. This overloads
the freezer, slows freezing, and can raise the temperature of frozen foods.
• Leave a space between packages, so cold air can circulate freely, allowing
food to freeze as quickly as possible.
• Avoid storing hard-to-freeze foods, such as ice cream and orange juice, on
the freezer door shelves.
IDEAS FOR SAVING ENERGY
Installation
• Locate the refrigerator in the coolest part of the room, out of direct sunlight,
and away from heating ducts or registers. Do not place the refrigerator next
to heat-producing appliances such as a range, oven, or dishwasher. If this is
not possible, a section of cabinetry or an added layer of insulation between
the two appliances will help the refrigerator operate more efficiently.
• Level the refrigerator so that the doors close tightly.
Food Storage
• Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator or blocking cold air vents. Doing so
causes the refrigerator to run longer and use more energy.
• Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator.
This cuts down on moisture build-up inside the unit.
• Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings. Remove as many items as
needed at one time and close the door as soon as possible.
Normal Operating Sounds & Sights
UNDERSTANDING THE SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
Your new high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These
sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on
floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable.

on and off.
F Condenser Fan You may hear air being forced through the condenser.
G Compressor Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in
the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound.
H Water Valve Makes a buzzing sound each time it opens to fill the ice maker.
I Drain Pan (not removable) You may hear water dripping into the drain pan
during the defrost cycle.
J Condenser May create minimal sounds from forced air.
K Motorized Damper May produce a light humming during operation.
