General Safety
WARNING
Please read all safety instructions
before using your new refrigerator.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other
flammable liquids near this or any
other appliance. Read product labels
for warnings regarding flammability
and other hazards.
• Do not operate the refrigerator in the
presence of explosive fumes.
• Avoid contact with any moving parts
of the automatic ice maker.

avoid injury. Staples can also damage
finishes if they come in contact with
other appliances or furniture.
Child Safety
Packing Materials:
• Packing cartons covered with rugs,
bedspreads, plastic sheets, or stretch
wrap may become airtight chambers
and can quickly cause suffocation.
• Destroy or recycle the product’s carton,
plastic bags, and any other exterior
wrapping material immediately after
the refrigerator is unpacked. Children
should never play with these items.
Child Entrapment and Suffocation:
• These problems are not limited to the
past. Whether junked, abandoned,
or temporarily stored (even for a few
hours), unattended refrigerators and
freezers are dangerous. Please take
the precautions listed below.
Proper Disposal of
Refrigerators/Freezers
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 recycle or dispose of your
old refrigerator/freezer:
• Remove the doors.
• Leave the shelves and baskets in place
so children may not easily climb inside.
• Have refrigerant and compressor oil
removed by a qualified service technician.

Safety
Electrical information
WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to
ensure that your refrigerator’s safety
mechanisms are operating correctly.
• The refrigerator must be plugged into
its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz,
AC-only non-GFCI electric outlet.
The power cord of the appliance
is equipped with a three-prong
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. Do not use an
extension cord or adapter plug.
• If the power cord is damaged,
it should be replaced by the
manufacturer, service technician, or a
qualified person.
• 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.
• To avoid electrical shock, unplug the
refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb or LED light.
• 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 outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull cord
to prevent the refrigerator from being
turned off accidentally.
Grounding type wall receptacle
Do not, under
any circumstances,
cut, remove,

This Use & Care Guide provides general
installation and operating instructions
for your model. We recommend using a
service or kitchen contracting professional
to install your refrigerator. Use the
refrigerator only as instructed in this Use &
Care Guide. Before starting the refrigerator,
follow these important first steps.
If your refrigerator is placed with the
door hinge against a wall, you may have
to allow additional space so the door
can be opened wider.
• If possible, place the refrigerator out of
direct sunlight and away from the range,
dishwasher, or other heat sources.
• The refrigerator must be installed on a
floor that is level and strong enough to
support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• Consider water supply availability for
models equipped with an automatic
ice maker.
Installation
• Allow the following clearances for ease
of installation, proper air circulation, and
plumbing and electrical connections:
Sides & Top ⅜ inch (9.5 mm)
Back
1 inch (25.4 mm)
Door opening
NOTE
The refrigerator doors are designed to shut
by themselves within a 20-degree opening.
Your refrigerator should be positioned
to allow easy access to a counter when
removing food. For best use of refrigerator
drawers and freezer baskets, the
refrigerator should be in a position where
both can be fully opened.

Guidelines for final positioning of your
refrigerator:
• All four corners of the cabinet must
rest firmly on the floor.
• The sides should tilt ¼ inch (6 mm)
from front to back (to ensure that
doors close and seal properly).
• Doors should align with each other
and be level.
Most of these conditions can be met by
raising or lowering the adjustable front
rollers.
To level the cabinet using the front rollers:
1 Slightly open freezer drawer. Lift the
toe grille and gently pull forward (see
illustration).
2 You can raise or lower each door.
Use a ⅜ inch socket wrench to turn
the adjustment screws (1 per side).

Connecting the Water Supply 13
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.
Plastic 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
softener can damage the
ice maker. If the ice maker is
connected to soft water, ensure
that 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:
1. Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade
screwdriver, and PhillipsTM screwdriver
2. Access to a household cold water
line with water pressure between 30
and 100 psi.
3. A water supply line made of ¼ inch
(6 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).
4. A shutoff valve to connect the water
supply line to your household water
system. DO NOT use a self-piercing
type shutoff valve.
5. Do NOT reuse compression fitting or
use thread seal tape.
6. A compression nut and ferrule
(sleeve) for connecting a copper
water supply line to the ice maker
inlet valve.
To connect water supply line to ice
maker inlet valve:
1. Disconnect refrigerator from electric
power source.
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 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 braided flexible stainless
steel tubing - The nut is already
assembled on the tubing. Slide nut
onto valve inlet and finger tighten nut
onto valve. Tighten another half turn
with a wrench; DO NOT over- tighten.
See Figure 2.
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.
7. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve
and tighten any connections that leak.
8. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical
power source.
9. To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal
arm (freezer ice maker) or set the ice
maker’s On/Off power switch to the
“On” position (fresh food ice maker).

Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser 21
Priming the water supply
system
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation,
recommended water supply pressure
should fall between 30 psi and 100
psi. Excessive pressure may cause
the system to malfunction.
1 Begin filling
the system
by pressing
and
holding a
drinking
glass
against
the water
dispenser
paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until
water comes out of the dispenser. It
may take about 1½ minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about
three minutes to flush the system
and plumbing connections of any
impurities (stopping to empty the
glass as necessary).
NOTE
The water dispenser has a built-in device that
shuts off the water flow after three minutes of
continuous use. To reset this shutoff device,
simply release the dispenser paddle.
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.
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 icon to Off; otherwise,
the ice maker’s fill valve may make a
loud chattering noise when it attempts
to operate without water.
Turning the fresh food ice maker
on and off
Ice production is controlled by the ice
maker’s On/Off icon on the control panel.
Press and hold the “Ice Off” icon for three
seconds to turn the ice maker “ON” or
“OFF”. If there is no indicator, then the ice
maker is ON.
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.
22 Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser
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.
• 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.
Off On
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.

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.
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.
Automatic Ice & Water Maker/Dispenser 23

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.
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.

Ice maker operation &
care (select models)
After the refrigerator is installed properly,
the ice maker can produce ice within 24
hours. When using the ice maker for the first
time, and in order for it to work properly, it is
necessary to clear air from the water tubing
and the filter. Furthermore, if the system is not
flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored
or have an odd flavor. Once ice maker begins
making ice, allow the bin to fill completely,
then discard the first FULL bin of ice on a
Standard Depth model, and the first TWO
FULL bins of ice on a Counter Depth model.
Ice Maker and Storage Bin Capacity
This ice maker should produce between 2 and
2.5 pounds of ice per 24 hours depending on
usage conditions. In a Standard Depth model,
the ice bin will hold about 12 pounds of ice.
In a Counter Depth model the ice bin will hold
about 7 pounds of ice.

Storing Food and Saving Energy 31
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 Cool Zone drawer or Perfect
TempTM drawer and set to meat/
poultry setting for short-term storage.
Any meat to be kept longer than two
days should be frozen.
Frozen food storage
• Activating “fast 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
heat-producing 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.
• Keep the freezer compartment at 0°F
or lower.
• A freezer operates most efficiently
when it is at least ⅔ full.
Temperature settings
Packaging foods for freezing
• 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.
• 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
“fast freeze” so that on your return
you can ensure your newly purchased
food designated for the freezer will be
preserved as quickly as possible.
• Refer to the “Controls” section for
procedures on temperature settings.

32 Normal Operating Sounds
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, highefficiency compressors run much
faster than older models. The
compressor may have a high-pitched
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.
K Motorized Perfect TempTM drawer
damper May produce a light
humming during operation.
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.
N Perfect TempTM drawer fan Turns
off when door opens or Perfect
TempTM drawer is turned off.
NOTE
Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator
is not a sound insulator.
NOTE
During automatic defrost cycle, a red
glow in the back wall vents of your
freezer compartment is normal.
Changing The Water and Air Filters 33
Your refrigerator is equipped with separate
water and air filtering systems. The
water filter system filters all dispensed
drinking water, as well as the water used
to produce ice. The air filter removes
odors and impurities from the refrigerator
compartment.
NOTE
The control panel includes controls to
monitor the status of your water and air
filters. See the Controls section for more
information.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a
period of time (during moving for example),

Care and Cleaning 35
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.
NOTE
Do not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable
fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches, or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets, or cabinet liners. Do not
use paper towels, scouring pads, or other abrasive cleaning materials.
• Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or strong alkaline
solutions on any surface.
• Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with bleach to clean stainless steel.
• Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
• Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
NOTE
If you set your temperature controls to turn off cooling, power to lights and other
electrical components will continue until you unplug the power cord from the wall
outlet.
• Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do not use razor blades or other sharp
instruments which can scratch the appliance surface.
• Do not remove the serial plate. Removal of your serial plate voids your warranty.
• Before moving your refrigerator, raise the anti-tip brackets so the rollers will work
correctly. This will prevent the floor from being damaged.
CAUTION
• Pull the refrigerator straight out to move it. Shifting it from side to side
may damage flooring. Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond the
plumbing connections.
• Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated
surfaces with wet or damp hands.
IMPORTANT
If you store or move your refrigerator in freezing temperatures, be sure to completely
drain the water supply system. Failure to do so could result in water leaks when the
refrigerator is put back into service. Contact a service representative to perform this
operation.
Refer to the guide on the next page for details on caring and cleaning specific areas of
your refrigerator.
