REFRIGERATOR SAFETY INFORMATION
This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety
messages will follow the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER”, “WARNING”, or “CAUTION”. These words are defined as:
DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in minor or moderate injury.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, or injury when using your
WARNING
refrigerator follow these basic safety precautions:
„ This refrigerator must be properly installed and located in
accordance with the Installation Instructions before it is used.
„ Unplug the refrigerator before making repairs, replacing a light
bulb, or cleaning.
Note: Power to the refrigerator cannot be disconnected by any
setting on the control panel.
Note: Repairs must be performed by a qualified service
professional.
„ Replace all parts and panels before operating.
„ Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
„ 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 (in the United States) or a CSA
certified (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.
„ To prevent suffocation and entrapment hazards to children,
remove the fresh food and freezer doors from any refrigerator
before disposing of it or discontinuing its use.
„ Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the door
handles or the shelves in the refrigerator. They could seriously
injure themselves.
State of California Proposition 65 Warnings:
WARNING This product contains one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth
defects or other reproductive harm.
CAUTION
To reduce the risk of injury when using your refrigerator, follow these basic
safety precautions.
„ Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Glass shelves and covers may break if exposed
to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping
or dropping. Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many
small pieces if it breaks.
„ 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.
2
„ Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment
when hands are damp or wet, skin may stick to these
extremely cold surfaces.
„ Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.
„ 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 ice making mechanism while the refrigerator
is plugged in.

SAFETY
(CONT.)
INSTALLATION
WARNING
Explosion Hazard.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from refrigerator. Failure to do so can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
WARNING
Tip Over Hazard.
Built-in style models (model PYE, CYE, GYE, DYE, PWE, CWE, and ZWE) are top heavy, especially
with any doors open. These models must be secured with the anti-tip floor bracket to prevent
tipping forward, which could result in death or serious injury. Read and follow the entire installation
instructions for installing the anti-tip floor bracket packed with your refrigerator.
CONNECTING ELECTRICITY
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard.
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet
Do not remove the ground prong
Do not use an adapter
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
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. Do not use an adapter.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its
own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating plate.
A 115 Volt AC, 60 Hz, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
SAFETY
HOT WATER DISPENSER
WARNING
Scalding Hazard.
The hot water dispenser is capable of heating water to a temperature of approximately 185°F (85°C).
Water temperatures above 125°F (52°C) can cause severe burns or death from scalding. Children, the
disabled, and the elderly are at highest risk of being scalded.
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual. To reduce the risk of severe burns,
scald injuries, or death when using your hot water dispenser, the instructions below must be followed:
„ Do not permit children to use the hot water dispenser.
„ The water coming from the dispenser is very hot. Use
extreme caution when dispensing and drinking water. Allow
water to cool to a drinkable temperature before drinking.
„ When dispensing water below 125ÛF, always test the
temperature of the water before drinking.
„ When dispensing hot water, the container can become
very hot. Use a temperature insulating container, such as
ceramic or foam. Using container materials such as paper
or plastic may result in a burn while holding the cup. Do
not use glass containers, as thermal shock can cause the
container to break and may result in scalding or lacerations.
„ Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality.
„ Your container should be close to the dispensing point to
minimize the splashing of hot water.
„ A newly installed water filter cartridge will cause water to
spurt from the dispenser. Run 2 gallons of water through
the cold water dispenser (about 5 minutes) to remove air
from the system. Until this air is removed from the system
through the cold water dispenser, DO NOT use the hot
water dispenser as it may result in spurting of hot water and
lead to hot water scalding.
„ The first time the hot water feature is used, confirm if
you live above 5000 feet (high altitude). This limits the
temperature of the hot water system to avoid boiling. To
access the high altitude selection, press Fridge and Door
Alarm and control will cycle from Hi AL to Lo AL (high
altitude to low altitude).
„ The hot water dispenser is designed to only dispense water.
Do not attempt to heat or dispense anything other than
water. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean the tank.
„ The hot water dispensing tank is a non-pressurized tank,
with a vent on the tank and a dispenser tube outlet. Do
not modify the system, close or block the dispense tube, or
connect any other type of device to the tank or dispense
tube. Doing so may lead to rupture of the tank and hot
water scalding.
PROPER DISPOSAL OF YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR
WARNING Suffocation and child entrapment hazard.
Remove fresh-food and freezer doors from the refrigerator, prior to disposal. Failure to do so can
result in child entrapment which can lead to death or brain damage.
IMPORTANT:
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 fresh food and freezer 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.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

Important Facts About Your Dispenser
„ Do not add ice from trays or bags to the door ice maker
bucket. It may not crush or dispense.
„ 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 remove the ice
bucket, poke it through with a wooden spoon.
„ Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the
door ice maker bin. Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage drawer may cause the ice maker or auger to jam.
To Use the Internal Water Dispenser*
The water dispenser is located on the
left wall inside the refrigerator compartment.
To dispense water:
Hold the glass against the recess.
Push the water dispenser button.
Hold the glass underneath the
dispenser for 2–3 seconds after
releasing the dispenser button. Water
may continue to dispense after the

„ 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 ICE. 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.
If no water is dispensed when the refrigerator is first installed,
there may be air in the water line system. Press the dispenser
button for at least 5 minutes to remove trapped air from the
water line and to fill the water system. During this process,
the dispenser noise may be loud as the air is purged from the
water line system. To flush out impurities in the water line,
throw away the first 6 glassfuls of water.
NOTE: To avoid water deposits, the dispenser should be
cleaned periodically by wiping with a clean cloth or sponge.

About the GE® RPWFE water filter cartridge.
GEAppliances.com
Water Filter Cartridge
The water filter cartridge is located in the fresh food interior
on the left side wall, near the top.
This product uses radio frequency identification (RFID) to
detect leaks and monitor filter status. The RFID technology is
certified by the FCC.
FCCID: ZKJ-EBX1532P001 ICID: 10229A-EBX1532P001
“This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.”
“This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt
RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference, including interference
that may cause undesired operation of the device.”
When to replace the filter cartridge
The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or
earlier if 170 gallons of water has been dispensed or the flow of
water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases.
Touch Screen Models: A filter status message will appear on
the screen when the water filter needs to be replaced. The filter
status will automatically update when the filter is replaced.
Non-touch Screen Models: A filter indicator light will illuminate
on the screen when the water filter needs to be replaced.
Removing the filter cartridge
To replace the filter, first remove the old cartridge by opening
the filter door and pulling on the bottom of the cartridge to allow
it to swing outward. When the cartridge can no longer swing,
gently pull to unseat it from the cartridge holder. DO NOT TWIST
CARTRIDGE. A small amount of water may drip out.
Installing the Filter Cartridge
1. Align top of filter cartridge with cartridge holder with the word
“FRONT” facing outward then push the cartridge toward
the rear of the unit until it is fully seated. DO NOT TWIST THE
FILTER CARTRIDGE!
2. While continuing to ensure cartridge is fully seated in the
holder, gently swing the filter inward until it is in position. If
filter will not swing easily, check to ensure filter is properly
aligned and fully seated within the cartridge holder. Close the
filter door.
Swing
Push \ Pull
3. Run two gallons of water through the cold water dispenser
(about 5 minutes) to remove air from the system. A newly
installed filter cartridge will cause water to spurt from the
dispenser. Use a large pitcher or sports bottle to catch the
water spray. DO NOT use hands-free auto-fill (some models)
until all air is removed from the system.
4. Reset Filter Status message (non-touch screen models).
WARNING
Scalding Hazard.*
Use of the hot water dispenser prior to purging air from the
system may result in spurting of hot water and lead to hot water
scalding. Follow the instructions above to purge all air from the
system through the cold water dispenser prior to using the hot
water dispenser.
Note: It is normal for water to appear discolored during the initial
system flush. Water color will return to normal after first few
minutes of dispensing.
Filter Bypass Plug
To reduce the risk of property damage due to water leakage,
you MUST use the filter bypass plug when a replacement filter
cartridge is not available. The dispenser and icemaker will not
operate without either the filter or bypass plug installed. The
bypass plug is installed in the same way as a filter cartridge.
*Select Models Only
WARNING To reduce the risk associated with choking, do not allow children under 3 years of age to have access to
small parts during the installation of this product. The disposable filter cartridge should be replaced every 6 months at the
rated capacity, or sooner if a noticeable reduction in flow rate occurs.
For the maximum benefit of your filtration system, GE Appliances recommends the use of GE Appliances-branded filters only.
Using GE Appliances-branded filters in GE Appliances and Hotpoint® refrigerators provides optimal performance and reliability.
GE Appliances filters meet rigorous industry NSF standards for safety and quality that are important for products that are
filtering your water. GE Appliances has not qualified non-GE Appliances-branded filters for use in GE Appliances and Hotpoint
refrigerators and there is no assurance that non-GE Appliances-branded filters meet GE Appliances standards for quality,
performance and reliability.
If you have questions, or to order additional filter cartridges, visit our website at www.geapplianceparts.com or call GE

About the automatic ice maker.
GEAppliances.com
A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.
Ice maker
Feeler Arm
Automatic Ice Maker*
The ice maker 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.
The ice maker 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.
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
line connection is made to the unit or if the
water supply to an operating refrigerator is
turned off, make sure that the ice maker is
turned off. Once the water has been connected
to the refrigerator, the ice maker may be turned
on. See the table below for details.
You may hear a buzzing sound each time
the ice maker fills with water.
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 ice maker 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.
NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average water
pressure, you may hear the ice maker cycle
multiple times when making one batch of ice.
WARNING
To minimize the risk of personal injury, 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 ice making mechanism while
the refrigerator is plugged in.

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.
Cleaning the Outside
The stainless steel panels, door handles and trim.
The stainless steel doors and door handles (on some
models) can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless
steel cleaner. Cleaners with oxalic acid such as Bar Keepers
Friend Soft Cleanser™ will remove surface rust, tarnish and
small blemishes. Use only a liquid cleanser free of grit and rub
in the direction of the brush lines with a damp soft sponge. Do
not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel.
Silver-accented plastic parts.
Wash parts with soap or other mild detergents. Wipe clean
with a sponge, damp cloth or paper towel.
Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or
cleaners containing bleach because these products can
scratch and weaken the paint finish. Do not wash tray in the
dishwasher.
Should metal spill tray need cleaning use lime remover.
Cleaning the Inside
To help prevent odors, leave an open box of baking soda in
the refrigerator 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 an appliance wax polish on the inside surface between
the doors.
8VHZDUPZDWHUDQGEDNLQJVRGDVROXWLRQ³DERXWD
tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water.
This both cleans and neutralizes odors.
Rinse and wipe dry.
CAUTION Do not clean glass shelves or covers
with warm water when they are cold. Glass shelves and
covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature
changes or impact such as bumping or dropping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small
pieces if it breaks.
Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in the
dishwasher.
Behind the Refrigerator
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.
Raise the leveling legs located at the bottom front of the
refrigerator.
Lower the leveling legs until they touch the floor.
When pushing the refrigerator back, make sure you don’t
roll over the power cord or water 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.
If the temperature can drop below freezing, have a qualified
service technician drain the water supply system to prevent
serious property damage due to flooding.
If you cut the water supply off, turn off the ice maker (pg. 21).
Upon returning from vacation:
1) Replace the water filter.
2) Run 2 gallons of water through the cold water dispenser
(about 5 minutes) to flush the system.
1) Turn refrigerator off (pg. 9) or unplug the refrigerator.
2) Empty ice bucket
3) Turn water supply off
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.

11 CONNECTING THE REFRIGERATOR
B If you are using copper tubing, insert the end of the
tubing into the refrigerator connection, at the back of the
refrigerator, as far as possible. While holding the tubing,
tighten the fitting.
If you are using SmartConnect™ tubing, insert the molded
end of the tubing into the refrigerator connection, at the
back of the refrigerator, and tighten the compression nut
until it is hand tight. Then tighten one additional turn with
a wrench. Over tightening may cause leaks.
C Fasten the tubing into the clamp provided to hold it in
position. You may need to pry open the clamp.
TO THE HOUSE WATER LINE
A
A cold water supply is required for automatic ice maker
operation. If there is not a cold water supply, you will
need to provide one. See Installing the Water Line section.
NOTES:
• Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be
sure the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the
wall outlet.
• If your refrigerator does not have a water filter,
we recommend installing one if your water supply
has sand or particles that could clog the screen of
the refrigerator’s water valve. Install it in the water
line near the refrigerator. If using SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing Kit, you will need an additional tube
(WX08X10002) to connect the filter. Do not cut plastic
tube to install filter.
• Before connecting the water line to the house, purge
the house line for at least 2 minutes.
If you are using copper tubing, place a compression nut
and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing coming
from the house cold water supply.
If you are using the SmartConnect™ tubing, the nuts are
already assembled to the tubing.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE
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
SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing (WX08X10006,
WX08X10015 and WX08X10025).
When connecting your refrigerator to a GE Appliances
Reverse Osmosis Water System, the only approved
installation is with a GE Appliances RVKit. For
other reverse osmosis water systems, follow the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
If the water supply to the refrigerator is from
a Reverse Osmosis (RO) 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 water filter can result in
hollow ice cubes.
This water line installation is not warranted
by the refrigerator or ice maker 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.
• Copper or 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.
SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are
available in the following lengths:
8’ (2.4 m)
– WX08X10006
15’ (4.6 m) – WX08X10015
25’ (7.6 m) – WX08X10025
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
connection is made to the ice maker, see Controls
section on page 9 to turn ice maker off.
Do not install the ice maker 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.
38
Installation Instructions
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently
used drinking water line.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED (CONT.)
NOTE: The only GE Appliances approved plastic
tubing is that supplied in 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 Appliances 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
1.800.661.1616).
• A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. (1.4–8.1 bar).
• Power drill.
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.
• 1/2” or adjustable wrench.
• Straight and Phillips blade screwdriver.
• Two 1/4 ” outer diameter compression nuts
DQGIHUUXOHVVOHHYHV³WRFRQQHFWWKHFRSSHU
tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator
water valve.
OR
• If you are using a 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.
• 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 SmartConnect™ Refrigerator tubing.
Take care not to allow water to drain into
the drill.
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.

Normal operating conditions.
GEAppliances.com
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.
„ You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors close.
This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.
„ After dispensing ice, a motor will close the ice chute
to keep warm room air from entering the ice bucket,
maintaining ice at a freezing temperature.
The hum of the motor closing the ice chute is normal, shortly after
dispensing ice.
CLICKS, POPS,
CRACKS and SNAPS
„ You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the
refrigerator is first plugged in. This happens as the
refrigerator cools to the correct temperature.
„ The compressor may cause a clicking or chirping sound
when attempting to restart (this could take up to 5
minutes).
„ Expansion and contraction of cooling coils during and
after defrost can cause a cracking or popping sound.
„ On models with an ice maker, after an ice making cycle,
you may hear the ice cubes dropping into the ice bucket.
„ After dispensing ice, a motor will close the ice chute
to keep warm room air from entering the ice bucket,
maintaining ice at a freezing temperature.
„ 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.
„ The fans change speeds in order to provide optimal
cooling and energy savings.
WATER SOUNDS
„ The flow of refrigerant through the 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.
START UP COOLING
It can take up to 24 hours for the refrigerator and freezer
temperatures to match the display. During that time
refrigerator and freezer door openings should be minimized.
TIPS
„ Freezer cools first.
„ Refrigerator compartment cools last; it may take several
hours after the freezer.
„ Turning off ice maker makes both fresh food and freezer
cool faster.

Troubleshooting Tips (cont)
Problem
Possible Causes
What to Do
Beverage quality not as expected
You may be using non-standard or
out dated K-Cups
Recommend using official Keurig K-cups
that are not past expiration and have not
been damaged
Liquid drips from the brewer after
brewer cycle is completed and the
brewer is removed from the bracket
It is possible for liquids to be retained
by the brewer and drip when it is
removed
Use a cloth or container to capture the
drips when brewer is removed
Delay when using Keurig K-cup Pod
dispenser
To ensure a quality beverage is
delivered, a short delay is required to
ensure the refrigerator is operating
correctly
Ensuring consistent, quality operation
requires the refrigerator to delay dispense
for a short period of time
After brewing, my powdered beverage Depending on size selected, the
is not fully cleared from the used pod powder may not dissolve fully. Some
powdered beverages develop into
‘clumps’ when left sitting for some
time
Shake the powdered pods before brewing
to break up these clumps and allow better
clearing. For powdered beverage with no
filter, use the Cocoa cycle selection
Brewer lid is difficult to close
K-cup is not fully seated
Press K-cup all the way down into the
brewer prior to closing the lid. Lower
needle must puncture K-cup bfore closing
the brewer lid
Brewer leaks during the brew cycle
Trouble in closing brewer lid or
damaged K-cup
Press K-cup all the way down into the
brewer prior to closing the lid. Lower
needle must puncture K-cup bfore
closing the brewer lid. Recommend using
official Keurig K-cups that have not been

Truth or Myth
Truth or Myth?
Answer
Explanation
The refrigerator water filter may require replacement
prior to six months
TRUE
The water filter indicator will indicate the need to replace the water
filter every six months or 170 gallons of water dispensed (select models
only). Water quality varies from city to city. If water flow from the
dispenser slows, or ice production decreases, the water filter should be
replaced, even though the filter indicator may not indicate the need for
replacement.
The automatic ice maker in my refrigerator will
produce ice when the refrigerator is plugged into a
power receptacle.
MYTH
The refrigerator must be connected to water, and the ice maker must be
turned on. Make sure the ice maker is turned on, only after the water
line is connected and water is turned on. The ice maker can be turned
on/off from the controls and ensure the ice maker is on, as indicated on
the refrigerator control panel. See About the Automatic Ice Maker.
After the refrigerator has been plugged in and
connected to water, I will immediately have unlimited
chilled water available from the water dispenser.
MYTH
The water dispenser tank located inside the refrigerator stores water
for dispensing. The water in this tank requires 24 hours to chill after
installation. High usage conditions will not allow time for the water to
chill.
After water dispenses, a few drops of water are
normal.
TRUE
A few drops of water may fall from the dispenser, after the dispenser
paddle has been released. To minimize the drops, remove the glass
slowly from the dispenser.
I will never see frost inside the freezer compartment.
MYTH
Frost inside the freezer typically indicates that the door is not properly
sealed, or has been left open. If frost is found, clear the frost using a
plastic spatula and towel, then check to ensure that no food packages
or containers are preventing the freezer door from closing. Check the
refrigerator control panel to ensure the door alarm is on.
When the refrigerator is installed, or after replacing the water filter, I must dispense water for five
minutes.
TRUE
A newly installed refrigerator or water filter contains air in the water lines.
Press the dispenser paddle and dispense cold water for at least 5 minutes
to remove air from the water line, and flush the filter.
To fill the ice bucket to the maximum capacity, I
should dispense 12 and 18 hours after installation.
TRUE
Dispensing 3-4 cubes 12 hours and 18 hours after installation, allows
ice to disperse within the ice bucket, which in turns calls on the ice
maker to produce additional ice. Normal ice production = 100 cubes in
24 hours.
I can use the water filter bypass plug to determine if
the filter requires replacement.
TRUE
Decrease in flow from the water dispenser, or decreased ice production,
may indicate the need to replace the water filter. Install the water filter
bypass plug (provided with the refrigerator), and check flow from the
dispenser. If water flow returns to normal with the bypass plug in place,
replace the water filter.
The top of the refrigerator doors will always be
aligned.
MYTH
Several things can affect the fresh food door alignment, including the
floor the refrigerator is installed on and loading of doors. If the top of
the fresh food doors are not aligned, use a 1/4” allen wrench to adjust
the right/left hand door. The adjustment screw is located on the bottom
right or left hand side of the door; open the freezer door to access the
screw.
Refrigerator door handles can be easily tightened.
TRUE
If door handles are loose or have a gap, the handle can be adjusted
using a 1/8” allen wrench, on set screws located on the ends of the
handles.
There may be odor and taste problems with your ice.
TRUE
After starting the ice maker, throw away 24 hours of ice production to
avoid odor and taste problems.
I can make fine adjustments to the fresh food doors
to align them.
TRUE
If the fresh food doors are not aligned, use a 1/4” Allen wrench to adjust
the right hand door. The adjustment screw is located on the bottom of
the right/left hand door. Open the freezer door to access.
Door handles should always be removed for
installation.
MYTH
If the doors must be removed do not remove the handles, or if the
refrigerator will fit easily through the passage way opening. Adjust
handles that are loose or have a gap, by adjusting 1/8” set screws on
either end of handles.

Truth or Myth (cont.)
Truth or Myth?
Answer
Explanation
Door removal is always required for installation.
MYTH
Check chart on reverse side of this instruction. Doors should only be
removed when necessary to prevent damage from passage way or
access to final location.
Refrigerator doors that won’t close after installation,
can be adjusted to close properly.
TRUE
Door mechanism works best if installed at 90°+. If installed at 180°,
remove the door from the mid hinge, and swing the door 180° before
reinstalling. See Reinstalling the Refrigerator Doors.
There is an adjustment to rear wheels.
MYTH
Front leveling legs are adjustable and should be used to balance the
refrigerator. Leveling legs are used to make initial fresh food door
adjustment.
Check for leaks after all water connections are made.
TRUE
While purging the air from the water system, check all water line
connections for leaks. Check the connection to the household water
supply at back of refrigerator, and door water line connect.
Any packaging residue can be cleaned off the
refrigerator using any cleaner.
MYTH
Do not use wax, polish, bleach, or other products containing chlorine
on Stainless Steel panels, door handles and trim. Check this instruction
under “Cleaning the Outside” for full details.
