IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.
• 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 3 seconds, located on the left side of
the temperature control panel 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 three-prong 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.
Power cord with
3-prong gounded plug
CAUTION
To avoid personal injury or property
damage, handle tempered glass shelves
carefully. Shelves may break suddenly if
nicked, scratched, or exposed to sudden
temperature change.
• 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.

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.
• 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 reuse 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.
• 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
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).

STORING FOOD AND SAVING ENERGY
Ideas for storing foods
Fresh food storage
• Keep the fresh food compartment
between 34° F and 40° F with an optimum
temperature of 37° F.
• Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator
shelves, which reduces air circulation and
causes uneven cooling.
Fruits and vegetables
designated for the freezer will be preserved
as quickly as possible.
• Activating “quick freeze” also will help
your freezer more efficiently maintain the
selected temperature after placing new
purchases with pre-existing frozen foods.
• Avoid adding too much warm food to the
freezer at one time. This overloads the
freezer, slows the rate of 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.
• Store fruits and vegetables in crisper
drawers, where trapped moisture helps
preserve food quality for longer time
periods.
Ideas for saving energy
• Wash items and remove excess water.
Installation
• Wrap any items that have strong odors or
high moisture content.
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry separately
and securely to prevent leaks and
contamination of other foods or surfaces.
• Use the deli drawer to store meat/poultry
for short-term storage. Any meat to be
kept longer than two (2) days should be
frozen.
Frozen food storage
• Keep the freezer compartment at 0° F or
lower.
• 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
• Prior to grocery shopping, activate
“quick freeze” so that on your return you
can ensure your newly purchased food
• 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 heatproducing 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 (2) appliances
will help the refrigerator operate more
efficiently.
• Level the refrigerator so that the doors
close tightly.
Temperature settings
• Refer to the “Controls” section for
procedures on temperature settings.
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.
• Do not place a hot container directly on
a cold shelf. Remember, such an extreme
temperature change may damage the
glass.
21
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.
The 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.
D Automatic ice maker When ice has
been produced, you will hear ice cubes
falling into the ice bin. Ice maker fan,
water valve activation, and refrigerant gas
fluid may create sounds from its operation.
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 older
models. The compressor may have a highpitched 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.
M Motorized damper May produce a light
humming during operation.
22

NOTE
Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator is
not a sound insulator.

NOTE
During automatic defrost cycle, a red glow
in the back wall vents of your freezer
compartment is normal.
