AVERTISSEMENT 5 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS SAFETY (CONT.) 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. 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. USE OF EXTENSION CORDS 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-listed (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. 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: 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. Take off the fresh food and freezer doors. Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside. READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

Customers in Canada should consult the yellow pages for the nearest Camco Service Center. 9 Ice & Water Dispenser (on some models) Built-In Refrigerators Dispenser with glass-touch controls How it Works The electronic controls on the dispenser are truly interactive. The control panel is equipped with a proximity sensor that causes the panel to light up as you approach the dispenser (approx. 2 inches). To make a selection, simply touch the graphic for the feature you want, and the halo for that feature will light up. When you walk away from the refrigerator, the lighted graphics switch off automatically. Spill Shelf How to Use To dispense water or ice: select WATER , CUBED ICE or CRUSHED ICE . Then press the glass gently against the top of the dispenser cradle. The spill shelf is not self-draining. To reduce water spotting, the shelf and its grille should be cleaned regularly. If no water is dispensed when the refrigerator is first installed, there may be air in the water line system. Press the dispenser cradle for at least two minutes to remove trapped air from the water line and to fill the water system. To flush out impurities in the water line, throw away the first gallon of water. CAUTION Never put fingers or any other objects into the ice crusher discharge opening. Locking the Dispenser: Touch CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds to lock the dispenser and control pad. To unlock, touch it again for 3 seconds. 10 Dispenser Light: This feature turns the light on and off. The light also comes on when the dispenser cradle is pressed. If this light burns out, contact factory service. Door Alarm: To turn the Door Alarm feature on, touch DOOR ALARM once. To turn it off, press it again. When the DOOR ALARM is active, the alarm will flash and beep if you keep the door open for more than 2 minutes. Ice & Water Dispenser (on some models) Built-In Refrigerators Ice storage bin To remove: Lift up the access door to reach the icemaker. Set the icemaker power switch to the OFF position. With the access door closed, support the storage bin at the bottom while slightly lifting. Pull bin straight out. To replace: Slide the bin back until the tab on the bin locks into the slot on the shelf. If the bin does not go all the way back, remove it and rotate the drive mechanism 1/4 turn. Then push the bin back again. Important facts about your ice & water dispenser • Do not add ice from trays or bags to the storage bin. It may not crush or dispense well. • Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice can jam the chute or cause the door in the chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute, push it through with a wooden spoon. • Beverages and foods should not be quickchilled in the ice storage bin. Cans, bottles or food packages in the storage bin may cause the icemaker or auger to jam. • To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser opening. Access Door Ice Storage Bin Rotate Drive Mechanism • Sometimes a mound of ice chips will form on the door in the ice chute. This condition is normal and usually occurs when you have dispensed crushed ice repeatedly. The ice chips will eventually evaporate. • Dispensed water is not ice cold. For colder water, simply add crushed ice or cubes before dispensing water. • The first glass of water dispensed may be warmer than the following ones. This is normal. • To eliminate drips on the spill shelf, tilt the glass in slightly when dispensing water. • Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you selected CUBES. 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 as small particles of ice melt. 11 Automatic Icemaker Built-In Refrigerators Automatic icemaker CAUTION MISE EN GARDE Évitez tout contact avec les pièces mobiles du mécanisme d’éjection ou l’élément chauffant (situé dans le bas de la machine à glaçons) qui libère les cubes. Ne placez pas les doigts ou les mains sur le mécanisme de production de glace automatique lorsque le réfrigérateur est branché dans la prise électrique. A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12–24 hours to begin making ice. The icemaker will produce seven cubes per cycle—approximately 15 cycles in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other use conditions. If the refrigerator is operated before the water connection is made to the icemaker, set the power switch to OFF. 12 Icemaker Avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the heating element (located on the bottom of the ice maker) that releases the cubes. Do not place fingers or hands on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in. Power Switch Feeler Arm When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, set the power switch to ON. Throw away the first full bucket of ice. Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler arm. When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice. 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: Icemaker works best between 40 and 120 PSI home water pressure. Climate Control Drawer Built-In Refrigerators Climate Control drawer How it Works The Climate Control feature is a system of dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor, and a heater. The Climate Control drawer can be used to chill items quickly, thaw foods quickly or store items at their optimum temperatures. The drawer is tightly sealed to prevent the drawer’s temperature from causing temperature fluctuations in the rest of the refrigerator. SELECT TEMP—Use this feature to store items at their optimum temperatures. The CITRUS setting will maintain a drawer temperature of 39–47°F by cycling a small heater off and on as needed. The PRODUCE setting will maintain the drawer temperature at 31–38°F by drawing in additional cold air as needed. The MEAT setting will maintain the drawer temperature at 27–37°F by drawing in additional cold air as needed. EXPRESS THAW—This feature thaws items in hours rather than days. Food is gently thawed in a cool environment by circulating air throughout the drawer. Temperature is maintained in the drawer by cycling a small heater off and on as needed. Once the thaw cycle is complete, the pan will automatically adjust to a temperature of 27–37°F to store the food at its optimum temperature. NOTE: By turning the controls on the Climate Control drawer off, the drawer can be used as a standard sealed produce pan. EXPRESS CHILL—This feature can be used to cool items in minutes, rather than hours. Extra cool air is circulated throughout the drawer.

Care and Cleaning Built-In Refrigerators Cleaning outside The dispenser spill shelf and the area beneath it should be cleaned periodically with a mild liquid dish detergent. Dispenser cradle—Before cleaning, lock the dispenser by touching CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds to prevent activating the dispenser. Clean with warm water and a mild liquid dish detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. Unlock the dispenser by touching CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds. Do not use chemical cleaners to clean the dispenser or any part of the dispenser. Door handles and trim—Clean with a cloth dampened with soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Keep the outside clean. Wipe with a clean cloth lightly dampened with mild liquid dish detergent. Dry with a clean, soft cloth. Cleaning inside To help prevent odors. leave an open box of baking soda in the unit. Turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse box before cleaning. If this is not practical, wring excess moisture out of sponge or cloth when cleaning around switches, lights or controls. Use warm water and baking soda solution— about a tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water. This both cleans and neutralizes odors. Thoroughly rinse and wipe dry. Do not wipe the refrigerator with a soiled dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave a residue that can damage the finish. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners containing bleach because these products can scratch and damage the finish. Stainless steel—Regularly clean and polish the stainless steel door panels and handles (on some models) with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner such as Stainless Steel Magic™ to preserve and protect the fine finish. Stainless Steel Magic and the Monogram polishing cloth are available through GE Parts and Accessories, 800.626.2002, or monogram.com. For Stainless Steel Magic, order part number WX10X15. For Monogram polishing cloth, order part number WX72X10001. Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel. Other parts of the refrigerator—including door gaskets, meat and vegetable drawers, ice storage bin and all plastic parts—can be cleaned the same way. After cleaning the door gaskets, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the door gaskets sealing surface on the hinge side. This helps keep the gaskets from sticking and bending out of shape. Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in the dishwasher. Avoid cleaning cold glass shelves with hot water because the extreme temperature difference may cause them to break. Handle glass shelves carefully. Rough handling of tempered glass can cause it to shatter. NOTE: Interior lights may get too hot and turn off automatically if the refrigerator door is left open too long. This is normal and they will turn back on when they cool down. 19 Care and Cleaning Built-In Refrigerators Light bulb replacement CAUTION Halogen lights generate intense heat. Be certain power is off and lamps have sufficient time to cool before attempting to replace. Light Columns Power to the lamps can be turned off at the Master Light switch located behind the grille panel at the top of the refrigerator. There is a switch for the freezer and a switch for the fresh food compartment. Turning the temperature control to OFF does NOT remove power to the light circuits. MISE EN GARDE Les ampoules halogènes produisent une chaleur intense. Assurez-vous de bien couper le courant et de laisser suffisamment de temps aux ampoules pour leur permettre de se refroidir avant d’essayer de les remplacer. Bulbs Vous pouvez couper le courant en utilisant le commutateur de lumière principale situé derrière le panneau grillagé en haut du réfrigérateur. Il y a un commutateur pour le compartiment congélateur et un commutateur pour le compartiment réfrigérateur. Vous NE COUPEZ PAS l’alimentation électrique du réfrigérateur des circuits de lumières en mettant le bouton de contrôle de température en position OFF (arrêt). The refrigerator uses a halogen bulb: The columns along the back wall of the fresh food and freezer compartments are lit up by lamps located behind the top pan in the fresh food compartment and the bottom basket in the freezer compartment. These bulbs have a life expectancy of about 2000 hours. However, if the bulbs do need to be replaced, they can be purchased at hardware, general retail and home improvement stores or through GE Parts and Accessories, 800.626.2002. 20 This is a 35 watt, 12 volt, Type MR11 bulb.

PROBLEM REFRIGERATOR DOES NOT OPERATE MOTOR OPERATES FOR LONG PERIODS OR CYCLES ON AND OFF FREQUENTLY (Modern refrigerators with more storage space and a larger freezer require more operating time. They start and stop often to maintain even temperatures.) OPERATING SOUNDS POSSIBLE CAUSE • May be in defrost cycle when compressor does not operate for about 30 minutes. • Temperature control set at OFF. • If interior light is not on, refrigerator may not be plugged in at wall outlet. • The fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped. Replace fuse or reset the breaker. • The Sabbath Mode Kit may be installed and operating. Turn off the Sabbath Mode device. • Normal when refrigerator is first plugged in. Wait 24 hours for the refrigerator to completely cool down. • The new variable speed compressor is designed to run for longer periods of time to optimize efficiency and noise. You may notice the compressor and/or fan speeds accelerate based upon door openings and/or increased food loads. • 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. • Door left open or package holding door open. • If either door is open for over 3 minutes, you may hear the fans come on in order to cool the light. • Hot weather or frequent door openings. This is normal. • Temperature controls set at the coldest setting. See Temperature Controls. • The variable speed compressor changes speeds and sounds may vary. • Normal fan air flow—one fan blows cold air through the fresh food and freezer compartments—another fan cools the compressor motor. • The fans change speeds in order to provide optimal cooling and energy savings. • These NORMAL sounds will also be heard from time to time: – You may hear a whooshing or gurgling sound when the doors close. This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator. – A water dripping noise may occur during the defrost cycle as ice melts from the evaporator and flows into the drain pan. – The flow of refrigerant through the freezer 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. – You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator is first plugged in or during/after the defrost cycle. This happens as the refrigerator cools to the correct temperature. – Electronic dampers click open and closed to provide optimal cooling and energy savings. – The compressor may cause a clicking or chirping sound when attempting to restart (this could take up to 5 minutes). – The electronic control board may cause a clicking sound when relays activate to control refrigerator components. – Ice cubes dropping into the bin and water running in pipes as icemaker refills. – The icemaker water valve will buzz when the icemaker fills with water. 23 The Problem Solver Built-In Refrigerators Questions?
