Important Safety Instructions
Child Safety
Destroy or recycle the carton, plastic bags, and any
exterior wrapping material immediately after the
refrigerator is unpacked. Children should never
use these items to play. Cartons covered with rugs,
bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become
airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
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.recyclemyoldfridge.com 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.
Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit. Do not use an
extension cord or adapter plug.
• 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.

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 (6.4 mm) 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).
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your
household water system. DO NOT use a self-piercing
type shutoff valve.
• 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.
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 tubing only),
about 2½ turns, behind refrigerator as shown and
arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against
any other surface.
7. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and tighten
any connections that leak.
8. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power source.

IMPORTANT
After connecting the water supply, refer to “How to Prime
the Water Supply System” for important information about
priming an empty water supply system.
Your refrigerator’s water supply system includes several tubing
lines, a water filter, a water valve, and a water tank. To ensure
that your water dispenser works properly, this system must
be completely filled with water when your refrigerator is first
connected to the household water supply line.
Ice service
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, no ice will
be produced during the first 24 hours of operation. Air
in new plumbing lines may cause the ice maker to cycle
two or three times before making a full tray of ice. With
no usage, it will take approximately one to two days to fill
the ice container.
New plumbing connections may cause the first production
of ice cubes to be discolored or have an odd flavor. Discard ice made during the first 24 hours.
Controls
Refrigerator & Freezer Controls
 NOTE
When first turning refrigerator on, move refrigerator
and freezer controls to Normal. This is the
recommended initial setting. After 24 hours, adjust the
controls as needed.
 NOTE
Automatic ice makers are also optional accessories that
may be installed in most models at any time. Call your
local dealer for information.
Turning your Ice
Maker On
After the plumbing
connections have been
completed, the water
supply valve must be
opened. Place the ice
container under the ice
maker, pushing it as
far back as possible.
Lower the wire signal
arm to its “down” or
ON position.
Turning your Ice Maker Off
To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until it
clicks and locks in the “up” or OFF position. The ice
maker also turns off automatically when the ice container
is full.
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is shipped from the factory with the
wire signal arm in the ON position. To ensure proper
function for 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.
If the ice maker is not turned off and the water
supply is not connected, the water valve will
make a loud chattering noise.
Freezer Control
Refrigerator Control
Temperature Adjustment
• Adjust temperature gradually: move the knob in
small increments, allowing the temperature to
stabilize.
Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures
in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator
control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer
control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting.
Turning the freezer control will change only the freezer
temperature.
To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the
refrigerator and freezer compartments. For good
circulation, do not block cold air vents with food items.
IMPORTANT
Turning the refrigerator temperature control to “0”
turns off the compressor and prevents the refrigerator
from cooling, 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 wall outlet.
Cool Down Period
To ensure safe food storage, allow the refrigerator to
operate with the doors closed for at least 8 to 12 hours
before loading it with food.

Normal Operating Sounds and 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.
 NOTE
Rigid foam insulation is very energy efficient, but is not
a sound insulator.
Following is a list of major components in your
refrigerator and the sounds they can cause:
A Evaporator Refrigerant through the evaporator
may create a boiling or gurgling sound.
B Evaporator fan You may hear air being forced
through the refrigerator by the evaporator fan.
C Defrost heater During defrost cycles, water
dripping onto the defrost heater may cause a
hissing or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a
popping sound may occur.
IMPORTANT
During the automatic defrost cycle, you may notice a
red glow in the vents on the back wall of your freezer
compartment. This is normal during the defrost cycle.
D Automatic ice maker When ice has been
produced, you will hear ice cubes falling into
the ice bin. The ice maker will produce 2.5 to 3
pounds of ice every 24 hours depending on usage
conditions.
E Electronic control & automatic defrost
control These parts can produce a snapping or
clicking sound when turning the cooling system 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.
10
Care & Cleaning
Protecting your investment
Keeping your refrigerator clean maintains appearance and prevents odor build-up. Wipe up any spills immediately and clean the
freezer and fresh food compartments at least twice a year. When cleaning, take the following precautions:
• Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with bleach to clean stainless steel.
• Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
• Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
• Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface.
• Do not remove the serial plate.
Do not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, brushes, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated
detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets or cabinet liners. Do not
use paper towels, metallic scouring pads, or other abrasive cleaning materials or strong alkaline solutions.
 NOTE
If you set your temperature controls to turn off cooling, power to lights and other electrical components will continue until you
unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
CAUTION
• Pull the refrigerator straight out to move it. Shifting it from side to side may damage flooring. Be careful not to move the
refrigerator beyond the plumbing connections.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated surfaces with wet or damp hands.
IMPORTANT
If you store or move your refrigerator in freezing temperatures, be sure to completely drain the water supply system. Failure to do so
could result in water leaks when the refrigerator is put back into service. Contact a service representative to perform this operation.
