Proper Disposal of
Your Old Refrigerator
WARNING
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.
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in 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 these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
Important information to know about disposal of
refrigerants:
Dispose of refrigerator in accordance with Federal and Local
regulations. Refrigerants must be evacuated by a licensed,
EPA certified refrigerant technician in accordance with
established procedures.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack the Refrigerator
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
■
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.
NOTE: 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 “Refrigerator Safety.”
■
Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.
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 cover the floor with
cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. 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.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
“Refrigerator Care.”
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
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.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.

Location Requirements
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor, household
use only.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, it is
recommended to allow a ¹⁄₂" (1.25 cm) space on each side. Allow
3" (7.5 cm) of space between overhead cabinets and refrigerator
top. Allow at least 1" (2.5 cm) between back of cabinet and the
wall. If your refrigerator has an ice maker, make sure you leave
some extra space at the back for the water line connections.
■ If you are installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave
enough space on the hinge side to allow for the door to swing
open.
■
Level the refrigerator. See “Adjust the Doors.”
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where the
temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a maximum
of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature range for
optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage and
provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F
(32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp 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 or cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn cooling off or 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 turn cooling on or reset the
control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control depending on
the model) to the desired setting. See “Using the Controls” in the
User Instructions, User Guide, or Use & Care Guide.

Water Supply Requirements
Read all directions before you begin.
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed
here.
TOOLS NEEDED: Flat-blade screwdriver, ⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" open-end
wrenches or 2 adjustable wrenches, ¹⁄₄" nut driver and drill bit,
cordless drill.
IMPORTANT:
■ If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
connected, turn the ice maker OFF.
■
All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
■
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household temperatures will remain
above freezing.
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a ¹⁄₄"
(6.35 mm) saddle-type shutoff valve, a union, and copper tubing.
Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve complies with
your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆"
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
easily.
4
Water Pressure
IMPORTANT: A cold water supply with water pressure between
30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice
maker.
NOTE: If the water pressure is less than what is required, ice
cubes could be hollow or irregular shaped.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the ice maker is still not operating properly:
■ Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
■
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
Connect the Water Supply
(on some models)
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT: If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
connected, turn the ice maker OFF to avoid excessive noise or
damage to the water valve.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten.
8. Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and turn
ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is clear.
Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the copper
tubing.
Connect to Refrigerator
NOTE: On kit models, assemble water valve to refrigerator
according to kit instructions.
Style 1
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Attach the copper tube to the valve inlet using a compression
nut and sleeve as shown. Tighten the compression nut. Do not
overtighten.
3. Use the tube clamp on the back of the refrigerator to secure
the tubing to the refrigerator as shown. This will help avoid
damage to the tubing when the refrigerator is pushed back
against the wall.
4. Turn shutoff valve ON.
5. Check for leaks. Tighten any connections (including
connections at the valve) or nuts that leak.

3. Locate a ¹⁄₂" to 1¹⁄₄" (1.27 cm to 3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
■
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
■
Horizontal pipe will work, but drill on the top side of the
pipe, not the bottom. This will help keep water away from
the drill and normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. Determine the length of copper tubing you will need. Measure
from the connection on lower left rear of refrigerator to the
water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use ¹⁄₄"
(6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both
ends of copper tubing are cut square.
5. Using a cordless drill, drill a ¹⁄₄" hole in the cold water pipe you
have selected.

Adjust the Doors
Your refrigerator has two adjustable rollers - one on the right and
one on the left. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you want
the doors to close easier, adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the
instructions below.
1. Turn the leveling leg to lower or raise that side of the
refrigerator. It may take several turns to adjust the tilt of the
refrigerator.
■ To raise, turn the leveling leg to the left.
■
To lower, turn the leveling leg to the right.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling legs and rollers
which makes it easier to adjust.
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.
■
NOTE: Adjusting the Temperature Control to a higher (colder)
setting will not cool the compartments any faster.
Adjust the Temperature Control
The mid-settings 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.
3. Using a level, be sure that the refrigerator is still level side to
side. Readjust if necessary.
REFRIGERATOR USE
Your refrigerator has two controls that affect the temperature. The
Temperature control is located at the top front of the refrigerator
compartment and the Air Flow control is located on the back wall
of the freezer compartment.
CONDITION/REASON:
ADJUSTMENT:
REFRIGERATOR section too warm
■ Door opened often, large
amount of food added or room
temperature very warm
Adjust REFRIGERATOR
Control one setting
higher
FREEZER section too warm/ice not
made fast enough
■ Door opened often, or large
amount of food added or very
cold room temperature (can’t
cycle often enough)
Adjust AIR FLOW or
REFRIGERATOR Control
one setting higher
■
2. Open both doors again to make sure they close as easily as
you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by
turning both leveling legs to the left; it may take several more
turns.
NOTE: To keep the refrigerator level you should turn both
leveling legs the same amount.
Using the Controls
If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely,
your food may spoil.
■
Heavy ice usage
REFRIGERATOR section too cold
■ Controls not set correctly for
your conditions
Adjust REFRIGERATOR
Control one setting

Air Flow Control
The Air Flow control regulates the amount of air flowing between
the freezer and the refrigerator compartments.
When you plug in the refrigerator for the first time, turn the Air
Flow control to the Recommended setting.
Temperature Control
The Temperature control regulates the coldness of the air flowing
into the compartments.
For your convenience, your refrigerator controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
controls are still preset to the mid-setting as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off, turn the refrigerator control to
the word OFF. Turning the Temperature Control to OFF stops
cooling in the refrigerator and freezer compartments, but it does
not disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply.
Mid-setting “3”

Adjust the Air Flow Control
If you want to temporarily increase the cold air flow to a specific
compartment, adjust the control.
■ Max - Increase air flow to the freezer
■
Min - Increase air flow to the refrigerator
IMPORTANT: Once the performance is achieved, return the Air
Flow control to the Recommended setting to keep the refrigerator
operating at optimum efficiency.
CONDITION/REASON:
ADJUSTMENT:
Heavy ice use
Max

Ice Maker
(on some models - Accessory)
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
NOTE: Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
■ To turn the ice maker on, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is
made, the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice
cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up)

REFRIGERATOR
FEATURES
Your model may have some or all of these features.
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
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.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.
Refrigerator Shelves
(Glass shelves on some models)
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to match your
individual storage needs.
Storing similar food items together in your refrigerator and
adjusting the shelves to fit different heights of items will make
finding the exact item you want easier. It will also reduce the
amount of time the refrigerator door is open, and save energy.
Shelves and Glass Shelves (on some models)
NOTE: Turn the ice maker off before removing the ice storage bin
to serve ice or to clean the bin. This will keep the ice cubes from
dropping out of the ice maker and into the freezer compartment.
After replacing the ice storage bin, turn on the ice maker.
To remove and replace a shelf:
1. Remove items from the shelf.
2. Slide the shelf straight out to the stop.
3. Depending on your model, lift back or front of the shelf past
the stop. Slide shelf out the rest of the way.
4. Replace the shelf by sliding the back of the shelf into the track
in the wall of the cabinet.
5. Guide the front of the shelf into the shelf track. Be sure to slide
the shelf in all the way.
Ice Production Rate
■
■
NORMAL Ice Production: 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.
MAXIMUM Ice Production (on some models): 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
■
■
■
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Allow 3 days
to completely fill the ice storage bin. 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.
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.
Deli Drawer
(on some models)
To remove and replace the deli drawer:
1. Slide deli drawer out to the stop.
2. Lift front of deli drawer with one hand while supporting bottom
of drawer with other hand. Slide drawer out the rest of the
way.
3. Replace the drawer by sliding it back in fully past the drawer
stop.
Deli Drawer Cover (on some models)
To remove and replace the deli drawer cover:
1. Remove the deli drawer.
2. Push the cover back to release the rear clips from the shelf.
Tilt the cover up at the front, and pull it forward.
3. Replace the deli drawer cover by fitting the notches and clips
on the cover over the rear and center crossbars on the shelf.
11
4. Lower cover into place and pull the cover forward to secure
the rear clips onto the shelf.
5. Replace the deli drawer.
NOTE: In some models the deli drawer moves sideways on
the shelf to allow for flexible positioning.

Frozen Food Storage Guide
REFRIGERATOR CARE
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 avoid taste and odor transfer throughout
the product. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are normal. This
simply means that moisture in the food and air inside the package
have condensed, creating ice crystals.
Put no more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 lbs of food per cubic foot [907 to
1,350 g per L] of freezer space). Leave enough space in the
freezer for air to circulate around packages. The freezer door must
close tightly.
NOTE: For more information on preparing food for freezing, check
a freezer guide or reliable cookbook.
Cleaning
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
DOOR FEATURES
Your model may have some or all of these features.
Door Rails
The door rails may be removed for easier cleaning.
Snap on Door Rails (on some models)
To remove and replace the rails:
1. Depending on your model, remove the rails by pushing in
slightly on the front of the bracket while pulling out on the
inside tab. Repeat these steps for the other end.
2. Replace the rails by aligning the ends of the brackets with the
buttons on the sides of the door liner. Firmly snap bracket and
assembly onto the tabs above the shelf as shown.
Drop-in Door Rails (on some models)
To remove and replace the rails:
1. Remove the rails by pulling straight up on each end of the rail.
2. Replace the rails by sliding the shelf rail into the slots on the
door and pushing the rail straight down until it stops.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both compartments about once a month to avoid
buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
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 avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tool.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water. Dry
thoroughly with a soft cloth.
NOTE: To keep your stainless steel refrigerator looking like
new and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer’s approved Stainless Steel Cleaner
and Polish. To order the cleaner, see the “Accessories”
section.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come
into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If unintentional contact
does occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild
detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
4. Clean the condenser coils regularly. Coils may need to be
cleaned as often as every other month. This may help save
energy.
■ Pull refrigerator out away from the wall. See “Unpack the
Refrigerator.”
■
Vacuum coils when they are dusty or dirty.
■
Roll refrigerator back into place. Make sure to leave 1"
(2.5 cm) between the cabinet back and the wall.
■
Check to see that the refrigerator is level.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

■
Clicking/Snapping - valves opening or closing
■
Pulsating - fans/compressor adjusting to optimize performance
■
Rattling - flow of refrigerant, water line, or from items placed on top of the refrigerator
■
Sizzling/Gurgling - water dripping on the heater during defrost cycle
■
Popping - contraction/expansion of inside walls, especially during initial cool-down
■
Water running - may be heard when ice melts during the defrost cycle and water runs into the drain pan
■
Creaking/Cracking - occurs as ice is being ejected from the ice maker mold.

A kink in the line can reduce water flow - Straighten the water source line.
■
A reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to your cold water supply can decrease water
pressure - See “Water Supply Requirements.”
■
If questions regarding water pressure remain, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Off-taste, odor or
gray color in the
ice (on some
models)
■
New plumbing connections can cause discolored or off-flavored ice - Discard the ice and wash the ice
storage bin. Allow 24 hours for the ice maker to make new ice, and discard the first 3 batches of ice
produced.
■
Ice stored too long can develop an off-taste - Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow 24 hours for ice maker to
