This guide contains many important safety messages. Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol. It alerts you to safety messages that inform you
of hazards that can kill or hurt you or others, or cause damage to the product.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the hazard
signal word DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION. These words mean:
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury, or product damage only.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury and tell you what can happen if
the instructions are not followed.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury
to persons when using your product, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the following:
This refrigerator must be properly installed in accordance
with the Attention Installer Instructions that were taped
to the front of the refrigerator.
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch the cold
surfaces in the freezer compartment when hands are damp
or wet. Skin may adhere to the extremely cold surfaces.
• NEVER unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull it straight out from
the outlet.
In refrigerators with automatic icemakers, avoid contact
with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the
heating element that releases the cubes. DO NOT place
fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism
while the refrigerator is plugged in.
DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely. The United States Department of Agriculture in
Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
• Repair or replace immediately all electric service cords that
have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a
cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length
or at either the plug or connector end.
• When moving your refrigerator away from the wall,
be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
• DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors
and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if
they still contain ice crystals or if they are still cold--below
40°F (4°C).
• DO NOT allow children to climb, stand or hang on the
refrigerator doors or shelves in the refrigerator. They could
damage the refrigerator and seriously injure themselves.
...Thawed ground meats, poultry or fish that have any offodor or off-color should not be refrozen and should not be
eaten. Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If the odor
or color of any food is poor or questionable, get rid of it.
The food may be dangerous to eat.
• Keep fingers out of pinch point areas; clearances between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small. Be careful
closing doors when children are in the area.
• Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making any
repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be
performed by a qualified individual.
Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the eating
quality of foods, particularly fruits, vegetables and prepared
foods. The eating quality of red meats is affected less than
that of many other foods. Use refrozen foods as soon as
possible to save as much of their quality as you can.
• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, unplug the
refrigerator or turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse
box in order to avoid contact with a live wire filament. (A
burned-out light bulb may break when being replaced.)
NOTE: Setting either or both controls to the OFF position
does not remove power to the light circuit.

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still
dangerous...even if they will sit for just a few days. If
you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please follow
the instructions at right to help prevent accidents.
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY
YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR
OR FREEZER
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that
children may not easily climb inside.
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used
CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs are believed to harm
stratospheric ozone.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure
the CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a
qualified servicer. If you intentionally release this CFC
refrigerant, you can be subject to fines and imprisonment
under provisions of environmental legislation.
IMPORTANT:
separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off with a switch
or pull chain. Do not use an extension cord.
Please read carefully.
TO CONNECT
ELECTRICITY
Where a standard two-prong wall outlet is encountered,
it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall outlet.
Electrical Shock Hazard
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, this appliance must be
properly grounded. Have the wall outlet and the
circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
the outlet is properly grounded.

plug
RECOMMENDED
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the
third (ground) prong from the power cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation,
cleaning, or removing a light bulb, turn the control
(Thermostat, Refrigerator Control or Freezer Control,
depending on the model) to OFF and then disconnect the
refrigerator from the electrical source. When you are
finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source
and reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator Control or
Freezer Control, depending on the model) to the desired
setting.
USE OF EXTENSION
GROUNDING
METHOD
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own
individual properly grounded electrical outlet rated for
115 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is recommended that a
CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of
an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use an
extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a
UL-listed (USA), 3-wire grounding type appliance
extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet,
and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes
(minimum) and 120 volts.
Use of an extension cord will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the refrigerator.

ENSURING
PROPER
AIR CIRCULATION
SETTING
In order to ensure proper temperatures, air must flow
between the refrigerator and freezer sections. As shown
in the illustration below, air enters at top of freezer and
circulates down. From bottom of freezer, air is forced up
to top of refrigerator. Air enters refrigerator through top
vent, then circulates and exists at bottom, where it returns
to freezer.
THE CONTROLS
• Your refrigerator has a control pad on the dispenser that
lets you regulate the temperature in the freezer and
refrigerator compartments.

• Multi-Flow means powerful and effective cooling
operation. This is especially noticeable when new food
is placed in the refrigerator compartment.
• If water or foreign substances enter the cool air vent
while cleaning, efficiency will be lowered. In addition, if
gasket is damaged, efficiency may be lowered because
of escaping cool air.
• Refrigerator Temp Control: 33°F/46°F(O°C to 8°C)
The lower the number setting, the colder the refrigerator
compartment will become.
• Freezer Temp Control: -6°F/9°F(-21°C to -13°C)
When the setting is at a lower number, the freezer
compartment becomes colder. But the refrigerator
compartment becomes warmer because less cold air
flows into the refrigerator.
NOTE: If you want to change °F to °C or the reverse,
press and hold FRZ TEMP button and REF TEMP button
at the same time for 3 seconds.
• Express Freezing : Press the EXPRESS FRZ button
and the LED will turn on. This function will remain
activated for 24 hours and increase the cooling speed of
the freezer and the amount of ice produced.
• Dispenser Lock : Press and hold the LOCK button for 3
seconds to lock the dispenser.
When it is locked, the LED will be off and the dispenser
will not operate. To unlock, press and hold the LOCK
button for 3 seconds.
Do not block any of cool air vents with food packages.
If the vents are blocked, airflow will be interrupted and
temperature and moisture problems may occur.

every 6 months.
ADJUSTING
CONTROL
SETTINGS
FOOD STORAGE
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before
making final adjustments. It is best to wait 24 hours
before doing this. The mid-settings indicated in the
previous section should be correct for normal household
refrigerator usage. The controls are set correctly when
milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream
is firm.
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and
moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This
prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the
refrigerator. For dated products, check date code to
ensure freshness.
The refrigerator control functions as the thermostat for the
entire appliance (refrigerator and freezer sections). The
higher the number setting, the longer the compressor will
run to keep the temperature colder. The freezer control
adjusts the cold air flow from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Setting the freezer control to a lower
temperature keeps more cold air in the Freezer
compartment to make it colder.

FEATURES
WATER DISPENSER
Push up the dispenser switch with a glass until you hear
click to get cold water.
Packaging
Successful freezing depends on correct packaging. When
you close and seal the package, it must not allow air or
moisture in or out. If it does, you could have food odor
and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and also dry
out frozen food.

A CAUTION: Do not keep beverage cans or plastic
containers in the freezer compartment. They may be
broken when they are frozen.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze any large quantity of
food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer than
will freeze within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 Ibs of food
per cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough space in
the freezer for air to circulate around packages. Be careful
to leave enough room at
the front so the door can close tightly.
Tilt up the front of tray slightly and snap the ribs into the
holes to replace the tray.
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type
of food, the type of packaging or wrap used (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.
Ribs
NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for
30 minutes, then package and freeze. Cooling hot foods
before freezing saves energy.

REFRIGERATOR
SHELVES
CAUTION: Make sure that shelves are level from one
side to the other. Failure to do so may result in the
shelf falling or spilling food.
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to meet
your individual storage needs. Your model may have
glass or wire shelves.
Storing similar food items together in your refrigerator and
adjusting the shelves to fit different heights of items will
make finding the exact item you want easier; it will also
reduce the amount of time the refrigerator door is open,
saving energy.
Sliding
Out Shelves
IMPORTANT: Do not clean glass shelves with warm
water when they are cold. Shelves may break if exposed
to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as
bumping. For your protection, glass shelves are made
with tempered glass, which will shatter into small pebblesized pieces.
• To slide shelf in, push shelf in until it stops.
You can slide glass shelves in and out of your refrigerator
as follows.
• To slide the shelf out, carefully pull front of shelf

PREPARING
FOR VACATION
Set the icemaker power switch to O (off) and shut off the
water supply to the refrigerator.
The icemaker will produce eight cubes per cycle-approximately 100-130 cubes in a 24-hour period,
depending on freezer compartment temperature, room
temperature, number of door openings and other
operating conditions.
If the ambient temperature will drop below freezing, have
a qualified servicer drain the water supply system to
prevent serious property damage due to flooding from
ruptured water lines or connections.
If the refrigerator is used before the water connection is
made to the icemaker, set the power switch to O (off).
When the refrigerator has been connected to the water
supply, set the power switch to I (on).
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to freezing.
A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to
begin making ice cubes.
Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water
line to clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler
arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the
icemaker will stop producing ice.
It is normal for several cubes to be stuck together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become
cloudy, taste stale, and shrink.

included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing,
make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your local
plumbing codes.
Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
When using any electrical device (such as a power
drill) during installation, be sure the device is doubleinsulated or grounded in a manner to prevent the hazard
of electric shock, or is battery-powered.
All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing
code requirements.
NOTE: Wear eye protection.
INSTALLATION

1. SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure on
the line.
To determine how much tubing you need: measure
the distance from the water valve on the back of the
refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then add 8 feet
(2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 feet
[2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10" [25 cm] diameter) to
allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after
installation.

CHOOSETHE VALVELOCATION
Choose a location for the valve
that is easily accessible. It is best
to connect into the side of a
vertical water pipe. When it is
necessary to connect into a
horizontal water pipe, make the
connection to the top or side,
rather than at the bottom, to avoid
drawing off any sediment from the water pipe.
• A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i, on models without a water
filter and between 40 and 120 p.s.i, on models with a
water filter.

UNDERSTANDING
SOUNDS
• The defrost timer will click when the automatic defrost
YOU MAY HEAR
cycle begins and ends. The thermostat control (or
refrigerator control, depending on the model) will also
click when cycling on and off.
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, like the floor, walls and
cabinets, can make the sounds seem louder than they
actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds
and what may be making them.
• Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant, the
water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator.
• Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently
to keep your food items at the desired temperature.
The high efficiency compressor may cause your new
refrigerator to run longer than your old one, and
you may hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating the air
through the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
• As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due
to the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
• Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause
a popping noise.
• Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost
cycle may cause a sizzling sound.
You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the
condenser fan.
• You may hear water running into the drain pan during the
defrost cycle.

The refrigerator that was replaced was an
older model,
Modern refrigerators with more storage space require
more operating time.
The room temperature is hotter than normal.
The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal
room temperatures, expect your motor to run about 40% to
80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it to run
even more often.
The door is opened often or a large amount
of food has just been added.
Adding food and opening the door warms the refrigerator.
It is normal for the refrigerator to run longer in order to cool
the refrigerator back down. Adding a large amount of food
warms the refrigerator. See the Food Storage Guide section
on page 15. In order to conserve energy, try to get everything
you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep food organized
so it is easy to find and close the door as soon as the food
is removed.
The refrigerator was recently plugged in and
the refrigerator control was set correctly,
The refrigerator will take up to 24 hours to cool
completely.

Then...
The air vents are blocked. Cold air circulates
from the freezer to the fresh food section and
back again through air vents in the wall dividing
the two sections.
Locate air vents by using your hand to sense airflow and
move all packages that block vents and restrict airflow. Refer
to Multi Flow on page 14 for the location of air vents.
The doors are opened often.
When the door is opened, warm humid air is allowed into
the refrigerator. The more the door is opened, the faster the
humidity builds up, and the more warm air the refrigerator
must cool. In order to keep the refrigerator cool, try to get
everything you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep
food organized so it is easy to find and close the door as
soon as the food is removed.
The control is not set correctly for the surrounding
conditions.
Refer to the Setting the Controls section on page 14.
