Consumer Information

Refrigerator/Freezer

Introduction

Your new Monogram refrigerator/freezer makes an eloquent statement of style, convenience and kitchen planning flexibility. Whether you chose it for its purity of design, practical storage arrangements or assiduous attention to detail—or for all of these reasons—you’ll find that your

Monogram refrigerator/freezer’s superior blend of form and function will delight you for years to come.

The Monogram refrigerator/freezer was designed to provide the flexibility to blend in with your kitchen cabinetry. Decorative door insert panels allow it to match your kitchen cabinets or blend with your kitchen decor. Custom handles are also available to further personalize your refrigerator/freezer. Through a series of product and trim kit choices, the Monogram refrigerator/freezer can be beautifully integrated into the kitchen.

Since this is designed to be a built-in product, custom panels are required on the front of the Monogram refrigerator/freezer. Consult your kitchen designer or cabinetmaker for your customized look.

The information on the following pages will help you operate and maintain your refrigerator/freezer properly.

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.

• If your freezer has an automatic icemaker, 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/freezer is plugged in.

• Unplug your refrigerator/freezer before cleaning and making repairs. NOTE:

We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified individual.

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

Skin may adhere to these extremely cold surfaces.

• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, the refrigerator/freezer 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 store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

• Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.

w

DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerator/freezers are still dangerous…even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator/freezer, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

Before You Throw Away Your Old

Refrigerator/Freezer or Freezer:

Take off the doors.

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

CFC DISPOSAL

Your old refrigerator/freezer has a cooling system that used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons).

CFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone.

If you are throwing away your old refrigerator/freezer, 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.

LIRE ET CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS

AVERTISSEMENT :

Lorsquevousutilisezleréfrigérateur/congélateur, observez toujours certaines précautions de base, notamment :

• N’utilisez l’appareil que pour son usage prévu, comme décrit dans le présent manuel de l’utilisateur.

• Pour les réfrigérateurs doté 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/congélateur est branché.

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

w

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.

SE DÉBARRASSER DU CFC

Les vieux appareils de réfrigération ont un système de refroidissement qui a utilisé les CFC

(chlorofluorocarbones). Les CFCs sont jugés nocifs pour l’ozone stratosphérique.

Si vous débarrassez de votre viel appareil de réfrigération, assurez-vous que le frigorigène avec CFC soit enlevé correctement par un technicien qualifié. Si vous libérez intentionnellement ce frigogène avec CFC vouz pouvez être soumis aux contraventions et à l’emprisonnement après les stipulations des lois sur l’environment.

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

DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER PLUG TO

CONNECT THE REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER

TO A 2-PRONG OUTLET.

DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD

WITH THIS APPLIANCE.

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/freezer 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/freezer away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

Operating Instructions

Refrigerator/Freezer

Set the temperature control

WHEN YOU FIRST TURN THE

REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER ON,

SET THE CONTROL AT 5.

9 is the coldest setting, 1 is the warmest.

For colder or warmer temperatures, adjust the control one number at a time.

IMPORTANT: When first setting the control, or adjusting it, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator/freezer to get cold.

NOTE: Turning the control to the

OFF position stops cooling in the refrigerator/freezer, but does not shut off power to the refrigerator/freezer.

Automatic Icemaker

(on some models)

Refrigerator/Freezer

Automatic icemaker

(on some models)

A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to

24 hours to begin making ice.

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.

If your refrigerator is operated 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 thepower switch to I (on).

The green light will come on.

The icemaker will fill with water when it cools

15 °F. 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.

Power Switch

Icemaker

Green

Power Light

Feeler Arm

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.

If ice cubes get stuck in the icemaker, the green power light will blink. To correct this, set the power switch to O (off) and remove the cubes.

Set the power switch to I (on) to restart the icemaker.

After the icemaker has been turned on again, there will be a delay of about 45 minutes before the icemaker resumes operations.

NOTE:

In homes with lower-than-average water pressure, you may hear the icemaker cycle multiple times when making one batch of ice.

Water filter accessory

The water filter is an option at extra cost and is available from your dealer. Specify WR97X0214.

It has complete installation instructions and installs on 1/4

O.D. water line.

Cleaning outside

Care and Cleaning

Refrigerator/Freezer

The door handles and trim can be cleaned with a cloth dampened with a solution of mild liquid dishwashing detergent and water. Dry with a soft cloth. Don’t use wax on the door handles or trim.

The stainless steel panels and door handles

(on some models) can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner such as Stainless Steel Magic™.

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.

Cleaning inside

To help prevent odors, leave an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator/freezer.

Unplug the refrigerator/freezer 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.

Other parts of the refrigerator/freezer— including door gaskets, meat and vegetable drawers, ice storage bin and all plastic parts—can be cleaned the same way. After cleaning the door gaskets, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the door gaskets at the hinge side. This helps keep the gaskets from sticking and bending out of shape.

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/freezer parts in the dishwasher.

Condenser

To clean the condenser fins:

First turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse box. Wait about 30 minutes for the condenser area to cool. Then remove the decorative panel by lifting up and toward you.

Use a soft bristle brush to loosen dust and lint on the condenser fins. Use a vacuum hose to remove soil.

After cleaning:

Reconnect power at the fuse box or circuit breaker.

Replace the decorative panel.

Decorative Panel

Preparing for vacation

Care and Cleaning

Refrigerator/Freezer

For long vacations or absences, remove food and unplug the refrigerator/freezer. Move the control to OFF, and 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.

For shorter vacations, remove perishable foods and leave the control at the regular setting.

However, if the room temperature is expected to drop below 60°F (16°C), follow the same instructions as for extended vacations.

Move icemaker power switch to the O (off) position and shut off the water supply to the refrigerator/freezer.

Upper light bulb replacement

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

There are light bulbs at the top of the refrigerator/freezer.

To replace a bulb:

1

Turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse box.

2

Grasp the back of the shield with both hands, pull the light shield forward and rotate down.

This will release the tabs at the back of the shield from the back wall of the refrigerator.

Next, move the shield back to release the tabs at the front of the shield.

3

Replace with the same size bulb and reinstall the shield.

4

Turn the power on.

Lower light bulb replacement

To replace a bulb:

1

Turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse box.

2

Remove the top two drawers.

3

Replace with the same size bulb, reinstall the drawers, and turn the power on.

14

Preparation

Refrigerator/Freezer

Refrigerator/ freezer location

Do not install the refrigerator/freezer where temperatures will be below 60°F (16°C) because it will not run often enough to maintain proper temperatures.

Do install it on a floor strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator/freezer.

Clearances

If the refrigerator/freezer is to be installed in a corner, a 4

″ clearance is required on the hinge side for a 90° door opening and access to fresh food drawers. A 10

″ clearance is required on the hinge side to remove pans.

No other clearances at top, sides or back are required.

Leveling

This model has 4-point leveling. All 4 corners are supported by leveling legs. The front wheels are non-adjustable; they are only used for positioning the unit.

To level the back of the unit, turn hex nut located above the front wheels.

To level the front of the unit, use a 1

1

4

″ open end wrench and adjust the leveling legs.
