Proper Disposal of Your
Old Refrigerator
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 these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer
• Take off the doors.
•
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside,
REFRIGERATOR
INSTALLATION
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator,
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire,
Removing packaging materials
•
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap
over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water
and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. For
more information, see the "Refrigerator Safety" section.
On some models, shelves, bins, door shelf rails, and other
feature parts may be packaged in the Interior FeaturePak.
Follow the instructions contained in the package for proper
assembly.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for 1/2in.
(1.25 cm) space on each side and at the top. When installing your
refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave 2 in. (5.08 cm) minimum on
each side (depending on your model) to allow for the door to
swing open. If your refrigerator has an ice maker, allow extra
space at the back for the water line connections.
NOTE: Do not install the refrigerator near an oven, radiator, or
other heat source, nor in a location where the temperature will fall
below 55°F (13°C).
Depending on your model, to remove the protective
(transparent) film that is on the nameplate, which is located
on the freezer handle, use your fingernail and peel off the film,
starting from one side and peeling to the other.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove the white foam air return insert that
is located behind the control panel on the ceiling of the
refrigerator (on some models). The insert is part of the refrigerator
and not part of the packing material. If the insert is removed, ice
may migrate down from the freezer and cause icicles to form.

When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator
for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor.
Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it.
Do not wiggle or "walk" the refrigerator when trying to move
it, as floor damage could occur.
Cleaning before use
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
the "Refrigerator Care" section.
Important information
and covers:
to know about glass shelves
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when removing them to avoid impact from dropping.

Cold water supply
Connect the ice maker to a cold water line with water pressure
between 30 and 120 psi. If you have questions about your water
pressure, call your utility company.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
impor[ant to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection:
Recommended
grounding method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only 15 or 26 ampere fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an
extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator
or Freezer Control depending on the model) to OFF and then
disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you
are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source
and reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control
depending on the model) to the desired setting.

2.
Move the refrigerator into its final position.
3.
Remove the base grille (see "Base Grille" earlier in this
section). The two leveling screws are part of the front roller
assemblies which are at the base of the refrigerator on either
side.
4.
Use a screwdriver to adjust the leveling screws. Turn the
leveling screw to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator
or turn the leveling screw to the left to lower that side. It may
take several turns of the leveling screws to adjust the tilt of
the refrigerator.
Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn't
make. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be
concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard
surfaces, such as the floor, walls, and cabinets, can make the
sounds seem louder. The following describes the kinds of sounds
and what may be making them.
•
3 prong outlet.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws and
rollers. This makes it easier to adjust the screws.
5,
Open both doors again and check to make sure that they
close as easily as you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly
more to the rear by turning both leveling screws to the right. It
may take several more turns, and you should turn both
leveling screws the same amount.
6.
Replace the base grille.
Door Alignment
If the space between your doors looks uneven, you can adjust it
using the instructions below:
1.
Pry off the top hinge cover.
2.
Loosen the top hinge screws using a 5/_6in. socket or wrench.
3.
Have someone hold the door in place or put a spacer
between the doors while you tighten the top hinge screws.
4.
Replace the top hinge cover.
If your product is equipped with an ice maker, you will hear a
buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the ice
maker for each cycle.
Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep
your food items at the desired temperatures and to minimize
energy usage. The high efficiency compressor and fans may
cause your refrigerator to run longer than your old one. You
may also hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound from the
compressor or fans adjusting to optimize performance.
•
You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating air through
the refrigerator and freezer compartments. The fan speed
may increase as you open the doors or add warm food.
•
Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant, the
water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator.
•
Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle
may cause a sizzling sound.
•
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to
the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
•
Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause a
popping noise.
•
You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the
condenser fan.
•
You may hear water running into the drain pan during the
defrost cycle.

REFRIGERATOR USE
In order to ensure proper temperatures, you need to permit
airflow between the refrigerator and freezer sections. As shown in
the illustration, cool air enters through the bottom of the freezer
section and moves up. Most of the air then flows through the
freezer section vents and recirculates under the freezer floor. The
rest of the air enters the refrigerator section through the top vent.
IMPORTANT:
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food
into the refrigerator.
If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely,
your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer
Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended setting will
not cool the compartments any faster.
Adjusting
Controls
The mid-setting(s) indicated in the previous section should be
correct for normal household usage. The controls are set
correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice
cream is firm.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures, use the settings listed in the
chart below as a guide. On models with two controls, adjust the
refrigerator temperature first. Wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments and then recheck the temperatures.
Do not block any of these vents with food packages. If the vents
are blocked, airflow will be prevented and temperature and
moisture problems may occur.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
For your convenience, your refrigerator control(s) are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
control(s) are still preset to the mid-settings as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off, turn the refrigerator control to
the word OFF or until the word OFF appears. Your product will
not cool when the refrigerator control is set to OFE

Service" section.
Important information
and covers:
To manually turn the ice maker off, lift the wire shutoff arm to
the OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click to make sure
the ice maker will not continue to operate.
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when removing them to avoid impact from dropping.

Increasing ice production rate
...............................................................
=
=
NORMAL Ice Production: In Normal ice production mode, the
ice maker should produce approximately 8 to 12 batches of
ice in a 24-hour period. If ice is not being made fast enough,
turn the Freezer Control toward a higher (colder) number in
half number steps. (For example, if the control is at 3, move it
to between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours and, if necessary,
gradually turn the Freezer Control to the highest setting,
waiting 24 hours between each increase.
to know about glass shelves
Your model may have glass or wire shelves. Store similar foods
together and adjust the shelves to fit different heights, This
reduces the time the refrigerator door is open and saves energy.
Slide-out
Shelves (on some models)
_
To remove and replace a shelf in a metal frame:
1. Pull the shelf forward to the stop. Tilt the front of the shelf up
and lift it slightly as you pull the shelf from the frame.
2. Replace the shelf by guiding it back into the slots on the
frame and pushing the shelf in 3ast the stop.
MAXIMUM Ice Production (on some models): In Maximum ice
production, the ice maker should produce approximately 16
to 20 batches of ice in a 24-hour period. If your refrigerator
has the maximum ice production feature, push the switch to
MAX.
REMEMBER:
m
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
=
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the
ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener
chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker
and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating
properly and is well maintained.
m
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin,
Shelves and Shelf Frames
To remove and replace a shelf/frame:
1. Remove the shelf/frame by tilting it up at the front and lifting it
out of the shelf supports.
2.
Replace the shelf/frame by guiding the rear shelf hooks into
the shelf supports. Tilt the front of the shelf up until rear shelf
hooks drop into the shelf supports. Check to make sure that
the shelf is securely in position.

Frozen Food Storage
Guide
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food,
the type of packaging or wrap used (should be airtight and
moisture-proof), and the storage temperature. Seal the package
or container securely to prevent taste and odor transfer
throughout the product. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are
normal.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 Ibs. of food per cubic foot [9071,350 g per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the
freezer for air to circulate around packages. The freezer door
must close tightly. For more information on preparing food for
freezing, check a freezer guide or reliable cookbook.

There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments. If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every two to
three months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
•
Remove the base grille (see "Base Grille" or "Door
Removal" section).
•
Use a vacuum with a soft brush to clean the grille, the
open areas behind the grille and the front surface area of
the condenser.

ice maker:
•
Empty the ice bin.
If you choose to turn the refrigerator off before you leave:
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator.
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace the bulb with one of the same size, shape, and wattage.
1.
Unplug refrigerator or disconnect
2.

power.
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
•
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
•
When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position or move the switch to the OFF
(right) setting.
3.
Depending on your model, turn the Thermostat Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFE See the "Setting or Using the
Control(s)" section.
4.
Clean refrigerator, wipe it, and dry well.
5.
Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both doors to prop
them open far enough for air to get in. This stops odor and
mold from building up.
Moving
When you are moving your refrigerator to a new home, follow
these steps to prepare it for the move.
If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep both refrigerator
doors closed to help food stay cold and frozen.
1.
If the power will be out for more than 24 hours, do one of the
following:
•
Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food locker.
•
Place 2 ibs. (907 g) of dry ice in the freezer for every cubic
foot (28 L) of freezer space. This will keep the food frozen for
two to four days.
•
If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available, consume or
can perishable food at once.
REMEMBER: A full freezer stays cold longer than a partially filled
one. A freezer full of meat stays cold longer than a freezer full of
baked goods. If you see that food contains ice crystals, it may be
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected. If the
condition of the food is poor, dispose of it.
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker:
•
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day
ahead of time.
•
Disconnect the water line from the back of the
refrigerator.
•
When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm
to the OFF (up) position or move the switch to the OFF
(right) setting.
2.
Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all frozen food
in dry ice.
3.
Empty the ice bin.
4.
Depending on your model, turn the Thermostat Control or
Refrigerator Control to OFR See the "Setting or Using the
Controls" section.
5.
Unplug the refrigerator.
6.
Empty water from the defrost pan.
7.
Clean, wipe, and dry thoroughly.
8.
Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and tape them
together so they don't shift and rattle during the move.
9.
Depending on the model, raise the front of the refrigerator so
it rolls more easily OR screw in the leveling legs so they don't
scrape the floor. See the "Door Closing" or "Leveling Your
Refrigerator" section.
10. Tape the doors shut and the power cord to the refrigerator
cabinet.
When you get to your new home, put everything back and refer to
the "Refrigerator Installation" section for preparation instructions.
Also, if your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, remember to
reconnect the water supply to the refrigerator.
