IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING:

When using this appliance, always exercise basic safety precautions, including the following:

• Use this appliance only for its intended purpose

as described in this Owner’s Manual.

• This refrigerator must be properly installed in accordance with the Installation Instructions before it is used.

• Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang

on the shelves in the refrigerator. They could damage the refrigerator and seriously injure themselves.

• Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment when hands are damp or wet.

Skin may adhere to these extremely cold surfaces.

• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

• In refrigerators with automatic icemakers,

avoid contact with 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.

• 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 your refrigerator before cleaning and

making repairs. NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified individual.

• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb,

the refrigerator should be unplugged in order to avoid contact with a live wire filament.

(A burned-out light bulb may break when being replaced.)

NotE: Turning control to OFF does not remove power to the light circuit.

• Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.

DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT

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.

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.

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.

MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES

LIRE ET CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS

AVERtISSEMENt :

Lorsque vous utilisez le réfrigérateur, observez toujours certaines précautions de base, notamment :

• N’utilisez le réfrigérateur que pour son usage

prévu, comme décrit dans le présent manuel.

• Installez le réfrigérateur conformément aux directives d’installation avant de l’utiliser.

• Ne laissez pas les enfants grimper, s’asseoir, se tenir debout ni se pendre aux clayettes

du réfrigérateur. Ils pourraient endommager le réfrigérateur et se blesser gravement.

• Une fois le réfrigérateur en marche, ne touchez pas les surfaces froides du congélateur, surtout si vous avez les mains humides ou mouillées :

la peau risque d’adhérer à ces surfaces très froides.

• N’entreposez et n’utilisez pas d’essence ou autres vapeurs et liquides inflammables à proximité de cet appareil ou de tout autre appareil électroménager.

• Pour les réfrigérateurs dotés d’une machine

à glaçons automatique, évitez le contact avec les pièces mobiles du mécanisme éjecteur, ou avec l’élément chauffant situé à la partie inférieure de la machine à glaçons. Ne posez pas les doigts ou les mains sur le mécanisme de la machine à glaçons pendant que le réfrigérateur est branché.

• Éloignez les doigts des parties du réfrigérateur

où l’on peut facilement se pincer : les espaces entre les portes et entre les portes et les placards sont toujours étroits. Soyez prudent lorsque vous fermez les portes de l’appareil en présence des enfants.

• Débranchez votre réfrigérateur avant

de le nettoyer et de le réparer. REMARQUE : Nous vous recommandons vivement de confier toute réparation à un technicien qualifié.

• Avant de remplacer une ampoule grillée,

le réfrigérateur doit être débranché afin d’éviter tout contact avec un fil sous tension.

REMARQUE : Lorsque vous placez la commande sur éteint, l’alimentation électrique de l’ampoule n’est pas coupée.

• Ne faites pas recongeler des aliments surgelés qui ont complètement dégelé.

DANGER: RISQUES POUR LES ENFANTS

Les enfants pris au piège ou morts d’asphyxie sont toujours d’actualité. Les appareils de réfrigération abandonés sont toujours aussi dangereux, même si on n’attend que “quelque jours” pour s’en débarasser. Si vous ne gardez pas votre ancien appareil, veuillez suivre les directives ci-dessous afin de prévenir les accidents.

Avant de vous débarasser de votre vieux appareil de réfrigération :

Démontez les portes.

Laissez les clayettes en place afin d’empêcher les enfants de grimper à l’intérieur.

REFRIGERANTS

Tous les appareils de réfrigération contiennent des refrigerants qui, conformément aux lois fédérales, doivent être enlevés avant toute

élimination de l’appareil.

Si vous vous débarrassez de vieux appareils de réfrigération, vérifiez, auprès de la société qui s’occupe de leur élimination, ce que vous devez faire.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.

Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.

The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.

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.

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.

However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES

RACCORDEMENT ÉLECTRIQUE

Ne coupez ni retirez en aucun cas la troisième broche (mise à la terre) de la fiche du cordon d’alimentation. Pour votre sécurité, cet appareil doit être correctement mis à la terre.

Le cordon d’alimentation de cet appareil est muni d’une fiche à 3 broches (mise à la terre) qui se branche dans une prise mural ordinaire

à 3 alvéoles (mise à la terre) pour réduire au minimum les risques du chocs électriques.

Faites examiner la prise de courant et le circuit par un électricien qualifié pour vous assurer que la prise est correctement mise à la terre.

Si la prise murale est du type standard à 2 alvéoles, il vous incombe de la faire remplacer par une prise

à 3 alvéoles correctement mise à la terre.

La machine à glaçons doit toujours être branché dans sa propre prise de courant, dont la tension nominale est identique

à celle indiquée sur la plaque signalétique.

Cette précaution est recommandée pour garantir un rendement optimum et éviter une surcharge des circuits électriques de la résidence, ce qui pourrait créer un risque d’incendie par surschauffe des fils.

Ne débranchez jamais l’appareil en tirant le cordon d’alimentation. Saisissez fermement la fiche du cordon et tirez droit pour la retirer de la prise.

Réparez ou remplacez immédiatement tout cordon effiloché ou endommagé. N’utilisez pas un cordon fendillé ou présentant des signes d’usure.

Lorsque vous déplacez l’appareil du mur, faites attention de ne pas la faire rouler sur le cordon d’alimentation afin de ne pas l’endommager.

CORDONS PROLONGATEURS

Nous vous recommandons fortement de ne pas utíliser de cordons prolongateurs à cause des risques potentiels qu’ils présentent dans certaines conditions.

Toutefois si vous décidez d’utiliser tout de même un cordon prolongateur, il est absolument nécessaire qu’il s’agisse d’un cordon à 3 fils avec mise à la terre pour appareils électroménagers homologué UL aux États-Unis) ou homologué CSA (au Canada), pourvu d’une fiche et d’une prise mises à la terre de 15 ampères (minimum) et de 120 volts.

Operating Instructions

Stainless Steel Refrigerator

Temperature controls

The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37°F for the fresh food compartment and 0°F for the freezer compartment. Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended settings.

The temperature controls can display both the SEt temperature as well as the actual temperature in the fresh food and freezer compartments. The actual temperature may vary slightly from the SEt temperature based on usage and operating environment.

Setting either or both controls to oFF stops cooling in both the freezer and fresh food compartments but does not shut off electrical power to the refrigerator.

NotE: The refrigerator is shipped with protective film covering the temperature controls. If this film was not removed during installation, remove it now.

To change the temperature, press and release the (warmer) or (colder) pad. The SET light will come on and the display will show the set temperature. To change the temperature, tap either the (warmer) or

(colder) pad until the desired temperature is displayed. Fresh food temperatures can be adjusted between 34°F and 44°F and the freezer temperatures can be adjusted between -6°F and +6°F.

Once the desired temperature has been set, the temperature display will return to the actual fresh food and freezer temperatures after 5 seconds. Several adjustments may be required. Each time you adjust controls, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the temperature you have set.

To turn the cooling system off, tap the (warmer) pad for either the fresh food compartment or the freezer until the display shows OFF. To turn the unit back on, press the (colder) pad for either the fresh food compartment or freezer. The SET light will illuminate on the side you selected. Then press the (colder) pad again (on the side where the SET light is illuminated) and it will go to the preset points of 0°F for the freezer and 37°F for the fresh food compartment.

Performance

Air Flow

System

The Performance Air-Flow System is designed to maximize temperature control in the fresh food and freezer compartments. This unique special feature consists of the Air Tower along the top and back walls of the fresh food compartment and the Air Tunnel on the bottom portion of the freezer rear wall. Placing food in front of the louvers on these components will not affect performance.

Although the Air Tower and the Air Tunnel can be removed, doing so will affect temperature performance. (For removal instructions, on-line,

24 hours a day, contact us at GEAppliances.com

or call 800.444.1845. In Canada, call us at

1.800.561.3344.)

Care and Cleaning

Stainless Steel Refrigerator

The stainless steel panels and handles can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless

Stainless Steel Magic is available at Ace, True

Value, Servistar, HWI and other leading stores.

It is also available through GE Parts and

Accessories, 800.626.2002. Order part number

WX10X15.

Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel.

To help prevent odors, leave an open box of baking soda in the fresh food and freezer compartments.

Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning.

If this is not practical, wring excess moisture out of sponge or cloth when cleaning around switches, lights or controls.

Use warm water and baking soda solution— about a tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water. This both cleans and neutralizes odors. Rinse and wipe dry.

Use of any cleaning solution other than that which is recommended, especially those that contain petroleum distillates, can crack or damage the interior of the refrigerator.

Avoid cleaning cold glass shelves with hot water because the extreme temperature difference may cause them to break. Handle glass shelves carefully. Bumping tempered glass can cause it to shatter.

Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in the dishwasher.

Be careful when moving the refrigerator away from the wall. All types of floor coverings can be damaged, particularly cushioned coverings and those with embossed surfaces.

Pull the refrigerator straight out and return it to position by pushing it straight in. Moving the refrigerator in a side direction may result in damage to the floor covering or refrigerator.

When pushing the refrigerator back, make sure you don’t roll over the power cord or icemaker supply line.

Preparing for vacation

For long vacations or absences, remove food and unplug the refrigerator. Clean the interior with a baking soda solution of one tablespoon

(15 ml) of baking soda to one quart (1 liter) of water. Leave the doors open.

Set the icemaker power switch to the o (off) position and shut off the water supply to the refrigerator.

If the temperature can drop below freezing, have a qualified servicer drain the water supply system to prevent serious property damage due to flooding.

Preparing to move

Secure all loose items such as shelves and drawers by taping them securely in place to prevent damage.

When using a hand truck to move the refrigerator, do not rest the front or back of the refrigerator against the hand truck. This could damage the refrigerator. Handle only from the sides of the refrigerator.

Be sure the refrigerator stays in an upright position during moving.

Normal operating sounds

The Problem Solver

Stainless Steel Refrigerator

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.

HUMMM...

WHooSH...

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.

The fans change speeds in order to provide optimal cooling and energy savings.

ClICKS, POPS,

CRACKS and CHIRPS

You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator is first plugged in.

This happens as the refrigerator cools to the correct temperature.

Electronic dampers click open and closed to provide optimal cooling and energy savings.

The compressor may cause a clicking or chirping sound when attempting to restart

(this could take up to 5 minutes).

The electronic control board may cause a clicking sound when relays activate to control refrigerator components.

Expansion and contraction of cooling coils during and after defrost can cause a cracking or popping sound.

After an icemaking cycle, you may hear the ice cubes dropping into the ice bucket.

WATER SOUNDS

The flow of refrigerant through the freezer cooling coils may make a gurgling noise like boiling water.

Water dropping on the defrost heater can cause a sizzling, popping or buzzing sound during the defrost cycle.

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.

For additional information on normal icemaker and dispenser operating sounds, see the Automatic Icemaker and Internal Water Dispenser sections.
