Leveling and Door Alignment
Door Alignment
After installing, plug the refrigerator’s power
cord into a 3-prong grounded outlet and push
the refrigerator into the final position.
The left refrigerator door has an adjustable nut,
located on the bottom hinge, to raise and lower
the door for proper alignment.
Your refrigerator has two front leveling legs—
one on the right and one on the left. Adjust the
legs to alter the tilt from front-to-back or sideto-side. If your refrigerator seems unsteady, or
you want the doors to close more easily, adjust
the refrigerator’s tilt using the instructions
below:
1
If the space between your doors is uneven, follow
the instructions below to align the doors evenly:
Use the wrench (included with the Use & Care
Guide) to turn the nut in the door hinge to adjust
the height. To the right to raise or to the left to
lower the height.
Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise
that side of the refrigerator or to the right
to lower it. It may take several turns of the
leveling leg to adjust the tilt of the
refrigerator.
The right refrigerator door does not have an
adjustable nut.
If the space between your doors is uneven, follow
the instructions below to align the right door:
Note
1
With one hand, lift up both the inner and
outer door sections of the right door to raise
them at the middle hinge. (Opening the door
may make lifting it easier)
2
With the other hand, use pliers to insert the
snap ring on the middle hinge of the inner
door section as shown. Do not insert the ring
on the hinge of the outer door section.
3
Insert additional snap rings until the right door
is aligned. (Two snap rings are provided with
the unit.)
A flare nut wrench works best, but an
open-end wrench will suffice.
Do not over-tighten.
2
Open both doors again and check to make
sure that they close easily. If the doors do
not close easily, tilt the refrigerator slightly
more to the rear by turning both leveling
legs to the left. It may take several more
turns, and you should turn both leveling
legs the same amount.

Smart Grid Function
When the refrigerator operates in Smart Grid
mode, the Smart Refrigerator function can control
energy usage or delay the operation of some
functions to save energy during peak usage
periods.
yy You can override the Smart Grid function
at any time (using the Smart Grid button or
application).
yy To use the Smart Grid function, you need to
register your appliance with your electric utility
company.
Using the Smart Grid Function
This feature responds to notification events
from your utility company to run high energyconsuming tasks during off-peak periods when
demand is lower. These notification events are
known as Demand Response signals.
If the refrigerator receives a Demand Response
signal from the utility company, the refrigerator
will turn on the Grid LED on the refrigerator
display and control its power consumption
according to the signal.
The refrigerator will respond to the signals
received from the utility company as long as
product performance is maintained.
If the refrigerator receives a Demand Response
signal, the refrigerator will operate in Delay
Appliance Load (DAL) or Temporary Appliance
Load Reduction (TALR) mode.
Delay Appliance Load (DAL): The refrigerator
responds to a DAL signal by providing a moderate
load reduction for the duration of the delay period.
This mode controls functions that consume a lot
of energy such as adjusting the cooling system,
running the defrost cycle, and making ice.
-W
hen the refrigerator operates in DAL mode,
the Grid LED is illuminated on the refrigerator
display.
-D
AL mode is automatically deactivated after it
lasts for the amount of time stipulated by the
DAL signal (max. 4 hours) or when you override
the Smart Grid function.
Temporary Appliance Load Reduction (TALR) :
The refrigerator responds to a TALR signal by
aggressively reducing the load for a short time
period, typically 10 minutes. This mode reduces
energy consumption by stopping the compressor
and controlling the functions that consume a lot
of energy such as the defrost cycle and fan.
-W
hen the refrigerator operates in TALR mode,
the Grid LED is illuminated on the refrigerator
display.
-T
ALR mode is automatically deactivated after it
lasts for the received duration (max. 10 minutes),
or when you override the Smart Grid function.
The mode is immediately deactivated and the
refrigerator returns to its normal state when the
door is opened or closed, or the dispenser is
used.

cubes and stop producing ice. Shaking the
ice bin to level the ice within it can reduce
this problem.
yy Storing cans or other items in the ice bin will
damage the icemaker.
yy Keep the ice compartment door closed
tightly. If the ice compartment door is not
closed tightly, the cold air in the ice bin will
freeze food in the refrigerator compartment.
This could also cause the icemaker to stop
producing ice.
yy If the Ice On/Off button on the display is
set to OFF for an extended period of time,
the ice compartment will gradually warm
up to the temperature of the refrigerator
compartment. To prevent ice cubes from
melting and leaking from the dispenser,
ALWAYS empty the ice bin when the
icemaker is set to OFF for more than a few
hours.
Assembling the In-Door Ice Bin
1
Carefully insert the in-door ice bin while
slightly slanting it to avoid contact with the
icemaker.
2

Note
Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook
for further information about preparing food
for freezing or food storage times.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large
quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen
food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 lbs. of food per
cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough
space in the freezer for air to circulate around
packages. Be careful to leave enough room at
the front so the door can close tightly.
Storage times will vary according to the quality
and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap
used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and
the storage temperature. 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.
Note
Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30 minutes, then package and freeze.
Cooling hot foods before freezing saves
energy.

Storing Frozen Food (continued)
Glide‘N’Access™
Packaging
The Glide’N’Access™ slides out for easy loading
of large items, like sheet cakes or deli trays, and
to give you easy access to items stored at the
back of the shelf.
To slide out, grasp the handle at the front of the
shelf and gently pull forward. Push back to slide
in.
Successful freezing depends on correct
packaging. When you close and seal the
package, it must not allow air or moisture in or
out. If it does, you could have food odor and
taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and
could also dry out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:
yy Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting
lids
Caution
Take care when sliding the
Glide'N'Access™ in and out, as taller
items may fall, causing damage or injury.
yy Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
yy Heavy-duty aluminum foil
yy Plastic-coated paper
yy Non-permeable plastic wraps
yy Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic
bags
Follow package or container instructions for
proper freezing methods.

Adjusting the Refrigerator
Shelves
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable
to meet your individual storage needs. Your
model may have glass or wire shelves.
Using the Folding Shelf
You can store taller items, such as a gallon
container or bottles, by simply pushing the
front half of the shelf underneath the back half
of the shelf. Pull the front of the shelf toward
you to return to a full shelf.
Adjusting the shelves to fit items of different
heights will make finding the exact item you
want easier. Doing so will also reduce the
amount of time the refrigerator door is open
which will save energy.
Detaching the Shelf
Tilt up the front of the shelf and lift it straight
up. Pull the shelf out.
Caution
yy Do not clean glass shelves with
warm water while they are cold.
Shelves may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or
impact.
yy Glass shelves are heavy. Use special
care when removing them.
Assembling the Shelf
Tilt the front of the shelf up and guide the shelf
hooks into the slots at a desired height. Then,
lower the front of the shelf so that the hooks
drop into the slots.
Caution
Make sure that shelves are level from
one side to the other. Failure to do so
may result in the shelf falling or spilling
food.
MAINTENANCE 45
Cleaning
yy Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically; however, clean both
sections about once a month to prevent odors.
yy Wipe up spills immediately.
yy Always unplug the refrigerator before cleaning.
General Cleaning Tips
yy Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
yy Remove all removable parts, such as
shelves, crispers, etc.
yy Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water. Do not
use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
yy Hand wash, rinse and dry all surfaces
thoroughly.
Inside Walls (allow freezer to warm
up so the cloth will not stick)
To help remove odors, you can wash the inside
of the refrigerator with a mixture of baking
soda and warm water. Mix 2 tablespoons of
baking soda to 1 quart of water (26 g soda
to 1 liter water). Be sure the baking soda is
completely dissolved so it does not scratch the
surfaces of the refrigerator.
Door Liners and Gaskets
Exterior
Waxing external painted metal surfaces helps
provide rust protection. Do not wax plastic
parts. Wax painted metal surfaces at least
twice a year using appliance wax (or auto paste
wax). Apply wax with a clean, soft cloth.
For products with a stainless steel exterior,
use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild
detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive
or harsh cleaners. Dry thoroughly with a soft
cloth.
