IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Proper Disposal of your Refrigerator
or Freezer
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not
problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigerators or freezers are still dangerous
– even if they will sit for “just a few days”. If
you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or
freezer, please follow the instructions below to
help prevent accidents.
Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers
We strongly encourage responsible appliance
recycling/disposal methods. Check with your
utility company or visit
www.energystar.gov/recycle for more
information on recycling your old refrigerator.
Before you throw away your old
refrigerator/freezer:
• Remove
doors.
• Leave
shelves in
place so
children may
not easily
climb inside.
• Have
refrigerant
removed by
a qualified
service technician.
WARNING
These guidelines must be followed to ensure
that safety mechanisms in this refrigerator
will operate properly.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should
be replaced by an authorized service
technician to prevent any risk.
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on
the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly,
and pull straight out from the receptacle to
prevent damaging the power cord.
• Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning
and before replacing a light bulb to avoid
electrical shock.
• Performance may be affected if the voltage
varies by 10% or more. Operating the
refrigerator with insufficient power can
damage the compressor. Such damage is
not covered under your warranty.
• Do not plug the unit into an electrical outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to
prevent the refrigerator from being turned
off accidentally.
IMPORTANT
Pressing and holding the On/Off button for
three seconds, located on the temperature
control panel (Electronic controls), or turning
the Freezer and Fresh Food controls to
“0” (Mechanical controls) will disable your
refrigerator’s cooling system, but does not
disconnect the power to the light bulb and
other electrical components. To turn off power
to your refrigerator you must unplug the
power cord from the electrical outlet.
Grounding type wall receptacle
Do not, under
any circumstances,
cut, remove,
or bypass the
grounding prong.
Electrical information
• The refrigerator must be plugged into its
own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp,
AC only electrical outlet. The power cord
of the appliance is equipped with a threeprong grounding plug for your protection
against electrical shock hazards. It must be
plugged directly into a properly grounded
three prong receptacle. The receptacle must
be installed in accordance with local codes
and ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician.
Avoid connecting refrigerator to a Ground
Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit. Do not use an
extension cord or adapter plug.

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
WARNING
To avoid electric shock, which can cause
death or severe personal injury, disconnect
the refrigerator from electrical power before
connecting a water supply line to the
refrigerator.
CAUTION
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing
is recommended for the water supply
line. Water supply tubing made of ¼
inch plastic is not recommended to be
used. Plastic tubing greatly increases
the potential for water leaks, and the
manufacturer will not be responsible for
any damage if plastic tubing is used for
the supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in
areas where temperatures fall below
freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener
can damage the ice maker. If the ice
maker is connected to soft water, ensure
that the softener is maintained and
working properly.
IMPORTANT
Ensure that your water supply line
connections comply with all local plumbing
codes.
Before Installing The Water Supply Line, You
Will Need:
• Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade
screwdriver, and PhillipsTM screwdriver
• Access to a household cold water line with
water pressure between 30 and 100 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼ inch
(6.4mm) OD, copper or stainless steel
tubing. To determine the length of tubing
needed, measure the distance from the
ice maker inlet valve at the back of the
refrigerator to your cold water pipe. Then
add approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters),
so the refrigerator can be moved out for
cleaning (as shown).
10
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply
line to your household water system. DO
NOT use a self-piercing type shutoff valve.
• Do not re-use compression fitting or use
thread seal tape.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for
connecting a copper water supply line to
the ice maker inlet valve.

NOTE
Check with your local building authority
for recommendations on water lines and
associated materials prior to installing your
new refrigerator. Depending on your local/
state building codes, Frigidaire recommends
for homes with existing valves its Smart
Choice® water line kit 5305513409 (with
a 6 ft. Stainless Steel Water Line) and for
homes without an existing valve, Frigidaire
recommends its Smart Choice® water line
kit 5305510264 (with a 20 ft. copper water
line with self-tapping saddle valve). Please
refer to www.frigidaire.com/store for more
information.
To Connect Water Supply Line To Ice Maker
Inlet Valve
1 Disconnect refrigerator from electric power
source.
2 Place end of water supply line into sink or
bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush
supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF
water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet
and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass
compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve)
onto water supply line. Push water supply
line into water valve inlet as far as it
will go (¼ inch/6.4 mm). Slide ferrule
(sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten
compression nut onto valve. Tighten
another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT
over tighten. See Figure 1.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The
nut and ferrule are already assembled on
the tubing. Slide compression nut onto
valve inlet and finger tighten compression
nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn
with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten. See
Figure 2.
CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water
supply line (copper tubing only) to rear
panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER
Priming the Water Supply System Ice Maker Operation & Care
Your refrigerator’s water supply system includes
several tubing lines, an advanced water filter,
a distribution valve bank, and a reserve tank
to ensure ample supply to the ice and water
dispenser at all times. This system needs to
be completely filled with water when first
connected to an external supply line.
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation, recommended
water supply pressure should fall between 30
psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause
water filter to malfunction.
To prime the water supply system:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and
holding a drinking glass against the water
dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water
comes out of the dispenser. It may take
about 1½ minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about four
minutes to flush the system and plumbing
connections of any impurities (stopping to
empty the glass as necessary).

NOTE
The water dispenser has a built-in device that
shuts off the water flow after three minutes
of continuous use. To reset this shutoff
device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
20
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.
Ice Production: What to Expect
How Much Ice Will a Side Mounted Ice
Maker Produce in 24 Hours?
A side mounted ice maker will produce 4 to 4.5
pounds of ice every 24 hours, depending on
usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of 8
cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.
How Much Ice Will a Rear Mounted Ice
Maker Produce in 24 Hours?
A rear mounted ice maker will produce 3 to 4
pounds of ice every 24 hours, depending on
usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of 8
cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.
Using the Ice Maker after
Installation
Before making ice for the first time, be sure
to prime the water supply system. 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.
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is shipped from the factory
with the wire signal arm in the ON position
(side mounted) or with the switch turned ON
(rear mounted). To ensure proper function
of your ice maker, hook up water supply
immediately or turn ice maker OFF by lifting
the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in
the UP position (side mounted) or turn the
On/Off switch to the Off (0) position (rear
mounted). If the ice maker is not turned off
and the water supply is not connected, the
water valve will make a loud chattering noise.
AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER
Turning the SIDE MOUNTED Ice
Maker On and Off
To begin ice production, lower the wire signal
arm to the DOWN or ON position. The ice
maker turns off automatically when the ice
container becomes full. To stop the ice maker,
raise the wire signal arm until it clicks and
locks in the UP or OFF position.
Turning the REAR MOUNTED Ice
Maker On and Off
Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s
ON/OFF power switch. To gain access to the
ice maker, pull the ice cream shelf out. Press
the switch to the “O” position to turn it Off and
press it to the “I” position to turn it On. The
ice maker also has a built-in wire signal arm,
which automatically stops ice production when
the ice bin is full. DO NOT use this signal arm
to manually stop the ice maker.

IMPORTANT
Small ice cubes or ice chips jamming in the
ice maker may be a sign that your water filter
needs changing. If you have a side mounted
ice maker you may also experience hollow
cubes partially frozen cubes with water inside.
When these cubes are harvested, they break
open and spill water over the other ice cubes
in the ice container, forming a solid mass of
ice. As the water filter nears the end of its
useful life and becomes clogged with particles,
less water is delivered to the ice maker during
each cycle. The ice maker can’t fill every cube
in the ice maker mold, leading to small cubes
or chips that can get caught between the ice
ejector blades and the stripper. Remember,
if your ice maker is jamming with small ice
cubes or it’s been six months or longer since
you last changed your water filter replace
the water filter with a new one. Poor quality
household water may require the filter to be
changed more frequently.
Ice Maker/Dispenser Tips
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop
an odd flavor. Empty the ice container as
explained below.
• 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.
• 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:
Off On
Wire
Signal Arm
- Motor running
- Ice dropping into ice container
- Water valve opening or closing
- Ice loosening from tray
- Running water
• When dispensing ice, you will hear a
snapping or clicking sound when the ice
chute opens and closes.
• 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.
21
AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER
CAUTION
Chemicals from a malfunctioning water
softener can damage the ice maker. If the
water supply to your refrigerator is softened,
be sure the softener is maintained to work
properly.
Cleaning the Ice Maker
Clean the ice maker and ice bin at regular
intervals, particularly before you take a
vacation or move.
IMPORTANT
When removing or replacing the ice bin,
DO NOT rotate the auger in the ice bin.
If the auger is accidentally rotated, you
must realign the auger by turning it in 90
degree turns (see below) until the ice bin
fits into place with the drive mechanism. If
the auger is not properly aligned when
replacing the ice bin, the refrigerator will
only dispense Crushed Ice. The freezer door
may also not close properly causing warm
air to leak into the freezer.
To clean the ice maker:
1Turn Off the ice maker.
2 Remove the ice bin by lifting up and out.
3 Empty and carefully clean the ice bin with
mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do
not use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
4 Allow the ice bin to dry completely before
replacing in the freezer.
5 Remove ice chips and clean the ice bin
shelf and the freezer door chute.
6 Replace the ice bin. Turn On the ice maker
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.
CAUTION
NEVER use an ice pick or similar sharp
instrument to break up the ice. This could
damage the ice storage bin and dispenser
mechanism.
