IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or
freezer, please follow the instructions below to
help prevent accidents.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should
be replaced by an authorized service
technician to prevent any risk.
Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers
• 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.
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.
IMPORTANT
CFC/HCFC Disposal
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system
that used CFCs or HCFCs (chlorofluorocarbons
or hydrochlorofluorocarbons). CFCs and HCFCs
are believed to harm stratospheric ozone if
released to the atmosphere. Other refrigerants
may also cause harm to the environment if
released to the atmosphere.
If you are throwing away your old
refrigerator, make sure the refrigerant is
removed for proper disposal by a qualified
technician. If you intentionally release
refrigerant, you may be subject to fines
and imprisonment under provisions of
environmental legislation.
• 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
three seconds, located on 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 threeprong 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 grounded 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.

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. lastic 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.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning water
softener can damage the ice maker. If
your home has a water softening system,
ensure 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
(6.4 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).
16
• 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 re-use 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.

2 Place end of water supply line into sink or
bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush
supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF
water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet
and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass
compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve)
onto water supply line. Push water supply
line into water valve inlet as far as it
will go (¼ inch/6.4 mm). Slide ferrule
(sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten
compression nut onto valve. Tighten
another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT
over tighten. See Figure 1.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The
nut and ferrule are already assembled on
the tubing. Slide compression nut onto
valve inlet and finger tighten compression
nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn
with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten. See
Figure 1.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water
supply line (copper tubing only) to rear
panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper
tubing only), about 2½ turns, behind
refrigerator as shown and arrange coils so
they do not vibrate or wear against any
other surface. Do not kink tubing.

Ice maker operation & care
After the refrigerator is installed properly and
has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can
produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will
fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense
some ice to force the ice forward in the bin.
This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Ice Maker and Storage Bin Capacity
This ice maker should produce 2.5 to 3 pounds
of ice per 24 hours.
In a Standard Depth model, the ice bin will hold
about 6.5 pounds of ice. In a Counter Depth
model, the ice bin will hold about 4 pounds of ice.
24
On/Off feature on the control panel. Pressing
the On/Off feature turns the ice maker on &
off.
IMPORTANT
Turning off the ice maker simply disables
ice making. You will still be able to dispense
existing ice, and you will still be able to
dispense water.

NOTE
The ice maker also has a built-in plastic
signal arm that automatically stops ice
production when the ice bin is full. This
signal arm should not be used to manually
stop the ice maker.
Using the ice maker after installation
Before making ice for the first time, be sure
to prime the water supply system. Air in new
plumbing lines can result in two or three empty
ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system
is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be
discolored or have an odd flavor.
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is turned on at the factory
so it can work as soon as you install your
refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water
supply, set the ice maker’s On/Off feature
to Off; otherwise, the ice maker’s fill valve
may make a loud chattering noise when it
attempts to operate without water.
IMPORTANT
On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may
be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice.
This could occur in normal operation of the
ice maker. If you start seeing these more
frequently, it may be an indication of low
water pressure or the water filter needs to be
replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its
useful life and becomes clogged with particles,
less water is delivered to the ice maker during
each cycle. Remember, if it’s been six months
or longer since you last changed your water
filter, replace the water filter with a new one.
Poor quality household water may require the
filter to be changed more frequently.
AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER
Ice maker/dispenser tips
• If your refrigerator is not connected to a
water supply or the water supply is turned
off, turn off the ice maker as described in
the previous section.
• The following sounds are normal when the
ice maker is operating:
- Motor running
- Ice dropping into ice bin
- Water valve opening or closing
- Running water
• When dispensing ice, you will hear a
snapping or clicking sound when the ice
chute opens and closes.
• If you need a large quantity of ice at one
time, it is best to get cubes directly from
the ice bin.
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop an
odd flavor. Empty the ice bin as explained
below.
• When dispensing cubed ice, it is normal to
have a small quantity of little pieces along
with the whole cubes.
• To avoid splashing, dispense ice into your
container before adding liquids.
• It is normal for ice to fill to the top of the
ice bin.
CAUTION
If the water supply to your refrigerator is
softened, be sure the softener is properly
maintained. Chemicals from a water softener
can damage the ice maker.
Cleaning the ice maker
3 Empty and carefully clean the ice bin
with mild detergent. Do not use harsh or
abrasive cleaners. Rinse with clear water.
4 Allow the ice bin to dry completely before
replacing in the freezer.
5 Replace the ice bin. Turn the ice maker on.
Remove and empty the ice bin if:
• An extended power failure (one hour or
longer) causes ice cubes in the ice bin to
melt and refreeze together after power is
restored, jamming the dispenser mechanism.
• You do not use the ice dispenser frequently.
Ice cubes will freeze together in the bin,
jamming the dispenser mechanism.
Remove the ice bin and shake to loosen the
cubes or clean as explained above.
CAUTION
NEVER use an ice pick or similar sharp
instrument to break up the ice. This could
damage the ice bin and dispenser mechanism.
To loosen stuck ice, use warm water.
Before replacing the ice bin, make sure it is
completely dry.
IMPORTANT
When removing or replacing the ice bin,
avoid rotating the auger in the ice bin. If
the auger is accidentally rotated, you must
realign the auger by turning it in 45 degree
turns (see below) until the ice bin fits into
place with the drive mechanism. If the
auger is not properly aligned when replacing
the ice bin, the refrigerator will not dispense
ice. The fresh food door also may not close
properly causing warm air to leak into the
fresh food compartment.

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
• Store fruits and vegetables in crisper
drawers, where trapped moisture helps
preserve food quality for longer time
periods.
• Wash items and remove excess water.
• 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 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 ⅔ 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
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.
Ideas for saving energy
Installation
• 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 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.

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.
L Ice dispensing paddle When dispensing
ice, you will hear a snapping, clicking, or
popping sound when the solenoid opens
and closes the ice chute.
M Motorized damper May produce a light
humming during operation.

More about your Advanced
Water Filter
Your refrigerator is equipped with water
filtering system. The water filter system filters
all dispensed drinking water, as well as the
water used to produce ice.
Water Filter
The water filter is located at the top right side
of the fresh food compartment.
Replacing the Water Filter
In general, you should change the water
filter every six months to ensure the highest
possible water quality. Water Filter Status
on the user interface prompts you to replace
the filter after a standard amount of water
(200 gallons/757 liters for PureSource
UltraTM) has flowed through the system.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a period
of time (during moving for example), change the
filter before reinstalling the refrigerator.
Filter Cartridge
The PureSource UltraTM ice and
water filter system is tested and
certified to NSF/ANSI Standards
42 and 53 for the reduction
of claims specified on the
performance data sheet.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system. Systems
certified for cyst reduction may be used on
disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
Test & certification results:
• Rated Capacity - 200 gallons/757 liters for

CHANGING THE FILTER
Locating the Filters
Your refrigerator is equipped with water
filtering system. The water filter system filters
all dispensed drinking water, as well as the
water used to produce ice.
Water Filter
The water filter is located at the top right side
of the fresh food compartment.
Replacing the Water Filter
In general, you should change the water
filter every six months to ensure the highest
possible water quality. Water Filter Status
on the user interface prompts you to replace
the filter after a standard amount of water
(125 gallons/473 liters for PureSource
Ultra IITM) has flowed through the system.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a period
of time (during moving for example), change the
filter before reinstalling the refrigerator.

CARE & CLEANING
Protecting your investment
Keeping your refrigerator clean maintains its appearance and prevents odor build-up. Wipe up
any spills immediately and clean the freezer and fresh food compartments at least twice a year.
