Troubleshooting Tips
Installation
Instructions
■ In refrigerators with automatic icemakers,
avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector
mechanism, or with the heating element located
on the bottom of the icemaker. Do not place fingers
or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism
while the refrigerator is plugged in.
2
■ Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas;
clearances between the doors and between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
■ Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and making
repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing
be performed by a qualified individual.
■ Non-LCD models: Setting either or both controls
to 0 (off) does not remove power to the light circuit.
■ LCD models: Turning the cooling system off does
not remove power to the light circuit.
■ Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely.
■ Always clean the CustomCool ™ Tray after thawing
food.
DANGER! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE REFRIGERATOR
Refrigerants
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants,
which under federal law must be removed prior
to product disposal. If you are getting rid of an
old refrigeration product, check with the company
handling the disposal about what to do.
Operating Instructions
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 below to help prevent
accidents.
Safety Instructions
ge.com
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.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed (in the United States)
or a CSA-listed (in Canada), 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.
Installation
Instructions
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use
of an extension cord.

WARNING!
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet
to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard
from this appliance.
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded.
If the outlet is a standard 2-prong outlet, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall
outlet.
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause
a fire hazard from overheated wires.
Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on
the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace immediately all power 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 end.
When moving the refrigerator away from the wall,
be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
Installation
Instructions
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate.

TurboCool ™ rapidly cools the refrigerator
compartment in order to more quickly
cool foods. Use TurboCool when adding
a large amount of food to the refrigerator
compartment, putting away foods after they
have been sitting out at room temperature or
when putting away warm leftovers. It can
also be used if the refrigerator has been
without power for an extended period.

About ClimateKeeper2.™ (on some models)
How it Works
The ClimateKeeper2 ™ is the industry’s
most advanced refrigeration system,
delivering optimum temperature and
humidity performance to keep food garden
fresh longer and reduce freezer burn, while
maintaining E star-level efficiency.
The ClimateKeeper2 system features two
evaporators—one for the refrigerator and
one for the freezer.
This provides two separate cooling systems,
and separates the airflow between the fresh
food and freezer compartments during
normal cooling operations.*
Consumer Support
Troubleshooting Tips
When opening the refrigerator door during
TurboCool, the fans will continue to run if they
have cycled on.
6
This ensures that the humidity levels in
the fresh food compartment are significantly
higher than in a conventional system,**
allowing fresh produce and other unsealed
foods to retain their moisture content and
freshness longer. Moisture sensitive foods
such as fresh fruit, salads, rice, etc., can now
be stored on open shelves without excessive
moisture loss. Due to the higher humidity in
the refrigerator, you may on occasion
experience fog or small amounts of moisture
in the refrigerator compartment. This is
normal and may come and go as different
food loads and environmental conditions
change. Wipe dry with a paper towel if
desired.
The separate airflow system minimizes
the mixing of air between the two
compartments, which reduces fresh food
odor transfer to improve the taste of ice.
The ClimateKeeper2 system also reduces
the number of defrosting cycles in the freezer
evaporator, thereby reducing freezer burn.
*Freezer air is used in the CustomCool
feature.
**Testing shows a higher level of humidity in
the Fresh Food section in ClimateKeeper2
refrigerators versus conventional units.

to access ice or reach
the power switch:
Lift the bin, then pull it
forward until the bin stops.
The icemaker will produce seven 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 use conditions.
When the refrigerator has been connected to
the water supply, set the power switch to the
l (on) position.
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools
to 15°F (–10°C). A newly installed refrigerator
may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice
cubes.
You will hear a buzzing sound each time
the icemaker fills with water.
Throw away the first few batches of ice
to allow the water line to clear.
Special note about dispenser models:
■ Dispenser models have a tilt-out ice bin.
The bin can be tilted out as shown in
the illustrations, and it will hold itself up
while you take ice out or turn the icemaker
power switch on and off. Be sure to put the
bin back in place before closing the door.
■ To restore your ice level from an empty
bucket stage, the following steps are
recommended:
12 hours after the first batch of ice
has fallen into the bin, dispense
3 to 4 cubes.
After an additional 6 hours, dispense
3 to 4 cubes again.
These steps will restore your ice level
in the shortest amount of time.

Icemaker
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep
of the feeler arm.
Lower the bin to access ice
or reach the power switch.
NOTE: In order to take full
advantage of the tilt-out ice bin,
only store items on the shelf below
the ice bin that are no taller than
the lowest point on the bin.
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 joined
together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will
become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.

Set the power switch to the O (off) position
before removing the bin.
Lift the bin, then pull it

Important Facts About Your Dispenser
■ Do not add ice from trays or bags to
the storage drawer. It may not crush or
dispense well.
■ Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use
of narrow glasses. Backed-up ice can
jam the chute or cause the door in the
chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking
the chute, poke it through with a
wooden spoon.
■ Beverages and foods should not be
quick-chilled in the ice storage drawer.
Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage drawer may cause the icemaker
or auger to jam.
■ To keep dispensed ice from missing
the glass, put the glass close to, but
not touching, the dispenser opening.
■ Some crushed ice may be dispensed
even though you selected CUBED.
This happens occasionally when a few
cubes accidentally get directed to
the crusher.
■ After crushed ice is dispensed, some
water may drip from the chute.
■ Sometimes a small mound of snow
will form on the door in the ice chute.
This condition is normal and usually
occurs when you have dispensed
crushed ice repeatedly. The snow
will eventually evaporate.
Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE (ICEMAKER & DISPENSER MODELS)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Recommended copper water supply kits are WX8X2,
WX8X3 or WX8X4, depending on the amount of tubing
you need. Approved plastic water supply lines are GE
SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing (WX08X10006,
WX08X10015 and WX08X10025).
When connecting your refrigerator to a GE Reverse
Osmosis Water System, the only approved installation
is with a GE RVKit. For other reverse osmosis water
systems, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
If the water supply to the refrigerator is from
a Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System
AND the refrigerator also has a water filter,
use the refrigerator’s filter bypass plug. Using
the refrigerator’s water filtration cartridge in
conjunction with the RO filter can result in hollow
ice cubes and slower water flow from the water
dispenser.
This water line installation is not warranted by
the refrigerator or icemaker manufacturer. Follow
these instructions carefully to minimize the risk
of expensive water damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in
house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator
parts and lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a
qualified plumber to correct water hammer before
installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.
To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook
up the water line to the hot water line.
If you use your refrigerator before connecting
the water line, make sure the icemaker power
switch is in the O (off) position.
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 double
insulated 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.
• Copper or GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator
Tubing kit, 1/4″ outer diameter to connect the
refrigerator to the water supply. If using copper,
be sure both ends of the tubing are cut square.
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. Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing to allow
the refrigerator to move out from the wall after
installation.
GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are
available in the following lengths:
6′ (1.8 m)
– WX08X10006
15′ (4.6 m) – WX08X10015
25′ (7.6 m) – WX08X10025
32
Installation Instructions
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently
used drinking water line.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED (CONT.)
NOTE: The only GE approved plastic tubing is
that supplied in GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator
Tubing kits. Do not use any other plastic water
supply line because the line is under pressure
at all times. Certain types of plastic will crack
or rupture with age and cause water damage
to your home.
• A GE water supply kit (containing tubing,
shutoff valve and fittings listed below) is available
at extra cost from your dealer or from Parts
and Accessories, 800.626.2002 (in Canada
1.888.261.3055).
• A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. (1.4–8.1 bar).
1 SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear
the line of water.
2 CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION
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.
• Power drill.
• 1/2″ or adjustable wrench.
• Straight and Phillips blade screwdriver.
• Two 1/4 ″ outer diameter compression nuts
and 2 ferrules (sleeves)—to connect the copper
tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator
water valve.
OR
• If you are using a GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing kit, the necessary fittings
are preassembled to the tubing.
3 DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a 1/4″ hole in the water pipe (even if using
a self-piercing valve), using a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in
the pipe.
Take care not to allow water to drain into
the drill.
• If your existing copper water line has a flared
fitting at the end, you will need an adapter
(available at plumbing supply stores) to connect
the water line to the refrigerator OR you can cut
off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then
use a compression fitting. Do not cut formed end
from GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator tubing.
Failure to drill a 1/4″ hole may result in reduced
ice production or smaller cubes.
• Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line.
The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with a
minimum inside diameter of 5/32″ at the point of
connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type
shutoff valves are included in many water supply
kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type
valve complies with your local plumbing codes.

4 FASTEN THE SHUTOFF VALVE
7 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE VALVE
Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe
with the pipe clamp.
Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve)
for copper tubing onto the end of the tubing
and connect it to the shutoff valve.
Pipe Clamp
Make sure the tubing is fully inserted into
the valve. Tighten the compression nut securely.
For plastic tubing from a GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing kit, insert the molded end
of the tubing into the shutoff valve and tighten
compression nut until it is hand tight, then
tighten one additional turn with a wrench.
Overtightening may cause leaks.

through the tubing.
6 ROUTE THE TUBING
Route the tubing between the cold water line
and the refrigerator.
Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the
wall or floor (behind the refrigerator or adjacent
base cabinet) as close to the wall as possible.
NOTE: Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing
to allow the refrigerator to move out from
the wall after installation.
To complete the installation of the refrigerator, go back

Newer refrigerators sound different from older
refrigerators. Modern refrigerators have more features
and use newer technology.
Do you hear what I hear? These sounds are normal.
■ The new high efficiency compressor may run faster
and longer than your old refrigerator and you may
hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while
it is operating.
■ Sometimes the refrigerator runs for an extended period,
especially when the doors are opened frequently. This
means that the Frost Guard™ feature is working to prevent
freezer burn and improve food preservation.
■ You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors close.
This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.
■ You may hear the fans spinning at high speeds.
This happens when the refrigerator is first plugged in,
when the doors are opened frequently or when a large
amount of food is added to the refrigerator or freezer
compartments. The fans are helping to maintain the
correct temperatures.
■ If either door is open for over 3 minutes, you may hear
the fans come on in order to cool the light bulbs.

■ A water dripping noise may occur during the defrost
cycle as ice melts from the evaporator and flows into
the drain pan.
■ Closing the door may cause a gurgling sound due to
pressure equalization.
■ Expansion and contraction of cooling coils during and
after defrost can cause a cracking or popping sound.
■ On models with an icemaker, after an icemaking cycle,
you may hear the ice cubes dropping into the ice
bucket.
