IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
This guide contains many important safety messages. Always read and obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol. It alerts you to safety messages that inform you
of hazards that can kill or hurt you or others, or cause damage to the product.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the hazard
signal word DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION. These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
CAUTION
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury, or product damage only.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if
the instructions are not followed.
w WARNING
NOTE: Setting either or both controls to the OFF position
does not remove power to the light circuit.
• When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the
electrical source and reset the controls. (Thermostat,
Refrigerator Control, and or Freezer Control, depending on
the model) to the desired setting.
• This refrigerator must be properly installed in accordance
with the Attention Installer Instructions that were taped to
the front of the refrigerator.
• After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch the cold
surfaces in the freezer compartment when hands are damp
or wet. Skin may adhere to the extremely cold surfaces.
• In refrigerators with automatic icemakers, avoid contact with
the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the
heating element that releases the cubes. DO NOT place
fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism
while the refrigerator is plugged in.
• DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely. The United States Department of Agriculture in
Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
…You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if
they still contain ice crystals or if they are still cold—below
4°C.
…Thawed ground meats, poultry or fish that have any offodor or off-color should not be refrozen and should not be
eaten. Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If the odor
or color of any food is poor or questionable, dispose of it.
The food may be dangerous to eat.
Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the eating
quality of foods, particularly fruits, vegetables and prepared
foods. The eating quality of red meats is affected less than
that of many other foods. Use refrozen foods as soon as
possible to save as much of their quality as you can.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons when using your product, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the following.
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
• NEVER unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power
cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull it straight out from
the outlet.
• Repair or replace immediately all electric service 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 the plug or connector end.
• Do not modify or extend the power cord length. It could
cause electric shock or fire.
• When moving your refrigerator away from the wall, be
careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.
• DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors
and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• DO NOT allow children to climb, stand, or hang on the
refrigerator doors or shelves in the refrigerator. They could
damage the refrigerator and seriously injure themselves.
• Keep fingers out of pinch point areas; clearances between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small. Be careful
closing doors when children are in the area.
• Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making any
repairs.
NOTE:We strongly recommend that any servicing be
performed by a qualified individual.
• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, unplug the
refrigerator or turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse
box in order to avoid contact with a live wire filament. (A
burned-out light bulb may break when being replaced.)
NOTE: Some models have LED interior lighting and service
should be performed by a qualified technician.

w DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
Junked or abandoned refrigerators are dangerous…even
if they will sit for just a few days. If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions at right
to help prevent accidents (Child entrapment and
suffocation).
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.
CFC DISPOSAL
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used
CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs are believed to harm
stratospheric ozone.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure
the CFC refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a
qualified servicer. If you intentionally release this CFC
refrigerant, you can be subject to fines and imprisonment
under provisions of environmental legislation.
GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off with a switch
or pull chain. Do not use an extension cord.
IMPORTANT: Please read carefully.
TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
Where a standard two-prong wall outlet is encountered,
it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it
replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall outlet.
w WARNING
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the
third (ground) prong from the power cord.
Electrical Shock Hazard
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, this appliance must be
properly grounded. Have the wall outlet and the circuit
checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the
outlet is properly grounded.
Do not use an adapter plug.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation,
cleaning, or removing a light bulb, disconnect the
refrigerator from the electrical source.
NOTE: Some models have LED interior lighting and
service should be performed by a qualified technician.
3-prong
grounding type
wall receptacle
When you are are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to
the electrical source and reset the control (Thermostat,
Refrigerator Control, or Freezer Control, depending on the
model) to the desired setting.
3-prong
grounding
plug
Ensure proper
ground exists
before use.
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 still elect to use
an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a
UL-listed (USA), 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.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own
individual properly grounded electrical outlet rated for
115 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Use of an extension cord will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the refrigerator.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Filter
SETTING THE CONTROLS
• Filter Reset : When the FILTER RESET indicator light
turns on, you have to change the water filter. Press the
FILTER RESET button for 3 seconds to turn the
indicator light off. You need to change the water filter
approximately every 6 months.
Temperature
• Your refrigerator has a control pad on the dispenser that
lets you regulate the temperature in the freezer and
refrigerator compartments.
• Initially set the refrigerator control at 37°F (3°C) and the
freezer control at 0°F (–18°C). Leave it at these settings
for 24 hours (one day) to stabilize. Then adjust the
compartment temperature as desired.
Light / Light Sensor
• If the light is set “Auto” mode, dispenser light will
automatically turn on and off according to the brightness
of room detected by light sensor.
Alarm
• When the power is connected to the refrigerator, door
alarm is initially set off and door alarm display will show
. When you touch
button, the display will change
to
and door alram function is now activated.
• Refrigerator Temp Control: 33°F to 46°F (0°C to 8°C)
The lower the number setting, the colder the refrigerator
compartment will become.
• Freezer Temp Control: -6°F to 8°F (-21°C to -13°C)
When the setting is at a lower number, the freezer
compartment becomes colder. The refrigerator

2. To remove the in-door ice bank, grip the front handle,
slightly lift the lower part, and slowly pull out the bin as
shown.
IN-DOOR ICE BANK
w CAUTION
• Keep hands and tools out of the ice bank door and
dispenser chute. You could break something or injure
yourself.
The icemaker will stop producing ice when the ice bank is
full. If you need more ice, empty the ice bank into the
extra ice bin in the freezer compartment so the icemaker
can keep producing ice.
Shake the ice bank occasionally to level the ice in it.
Sometimes the ice piles up near the icemaker, causing
the icemaker to misread the amount of ice cubes and stop
producing ice.
NOTE: Storing cans or other items in the ice bank may
damage the icemaker.
Keep the ice bank door closed tightly. If the ice bank door
is not closed tightly, the cold air in the ice bank will freeze
food in the refrigerator compartment. This could also
cause the icemaker to not produce ice.
3. To reinstall the in-door ice bank, slightly slant the bin
during replacement to avoid contact with the icemaker.
NOTE: 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.
1. Push on the latch firmly where noted to close the ice
bank door; it will make a clicking sound when it is

ADJUSTING CONTROL SETTINGS
FOOD STORAGE GUIDE
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before
making final adjustments. It is best to wait 24 hours
before doing this. The initial settings mentioned in
SETTING THE CONTROLS section should be correct for
normal household refrigerator use. The controls are set
correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and
when ice cream is firm.
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and
moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This
prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the
refrigerator. For dated products, check date code to
ensure freshness.
The refrigerator control functions as the thermostat for the
entire appliance (refrigerator and freezer sections). The
higher the number setting, the longer the compressor will
run to keep the temperature colder. The freezer control
adjusts the cold air flow from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Setting the freezer control to a lower
temperature keeps more cold air in the Freezer
compartment to make it colder.
If you need to adjust temperatures in the refrigerator or
freezer, start by adjusting the refrigerator. Then wait 24
hours before checking the freezer temperature. If it is too
warm or too cold, then adjust the freezer control.
Use the settings listed in the chart below as a guide.
Always remember to wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments.

STORING FROZEN FOOD
REFRIGERATOR SECTION
NOTE: For further information about preparing food for
freezing or food storage times, check a freezer guide or a
reliable cookbook.
WATER DISPENSER
Tray can be easily removed by pressing down and pulling
out it.
Packaging
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 also dry
out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:
• Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting lids
• Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
• Heavy-duty aluminum foil
• Plastic-coated paper
Tilt up the front of tray slightly and snap the tabs into the
holes to reinstall the tray.
• Non-permeable plastic wraps
• Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic bags
Follow package or container instructions for proper
freezing methods.
Do not use
• Bread wrappers
Holes
• Non-polyethylene plastic containers
Tabs
• Containers without tight lids
• Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap
• Thin, semi-permeable wrap
w CAUTION: Do not keep beverage cans or plastic food
containers in the freezer compartment. They may be
break if they freeze.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze any 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 (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.
w WARNING: Do not put your fingers up the ice chute
opening. Doing so can result in severe injury.
w CAUTION: Do not dispense ice into fine china or
crystal glasses. China or crystal can break.
NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for
30 minutes, then package and freeze. Cooling hot foods
before freezing saves energy.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
REFRIGERATOR SHELVES
w 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.
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to meet
your individual storage needs. Your model may have
glass or wire shelves.
Folding Shelf
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,
saving energy.
You can store taller items such as a gallon container or
bottles by simply pushing the front half of shelf
underneath back half of shelf. Pull toward you to returm to
a full shelf.
IMPORTANT: Do not clean glass shelves with warm
water when they are cold. Shelves may break if exposed
to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as
bumping. For your protection, glass shelves are made
with tempered glass, which will shatter into small pebblesized pieces.
NOTE: Glass shelves are heavy. Use special care when
removing them to avoid dropping them.

w CAUTIONS
• The first ice and water may include particles or odor from
the water supply line or the water tank.
• When the water supply will be shut off for several hours.
• When the ice storage bin is removed for more than a
minute or two.
• Throw away the first few batches of ice (about 20
pieces) and purge for 2 minutes that are dispensed after
refrigerator installation.
• When the refrigerator will not be used for several days.
• This is also necessary if the refrigerator has not been
used for a long time.
NOTE: Ice Bin should be emptied the icemaker on/off
switch is turned to the OFF position.
• Never store beverage cans or other foods in the ice bank
for the purpose of rapid cooling.
Doing so may damage the icemaker or the containers
may burst.
NORMAL SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
• The icemaker water valve will buzz as the icemaker fills
with water. If the power switch is in the I (on) position, it
will buzz even if it has not yet been hooked up to water.
To stop the buzzing, move the power switch to O (off).
• If discolored ice is dispensed, check the water filter and
water supply. If the problem continues, contact an
Authorized Service Center. Do not use the ice or water
until the problem is corrected.
NOTE: Ice Bin should be emptied the icemaker on/off
switch is turned to the OFF position.
• Keep children away from the dispenser. Children may
play with or damage the controls.
NOTE: Keeping the power switch in the I (on) position
before the water line is connected can damage the
icemaker.
• The ice passage may also become blocked with frost if
only crushed ice is used. Remove the frost that
accumulates.
• You will hear the sound of cubes dropping into the bin
and water running in the pipes as the icemaker refills.
• Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may break, and glass
fragments could be in the ice.
PREPARING FOR VACATION
• Dispense ice into a glass before filling it with water or
other beverages. Splashing may occur if ice is
dispensed into a glass that already contains liquid.
Set the icemaker power switch to O (off) and shut off the
water supply to the refrigerator.
NOTE: Ice Bin should be emptied anytime the icemaker
on/off switch is turned to the OFF position.
• Never use a glass that is exceptionally narrow or deep.
Ice may jam in the ice passage and refrigerator
performance may be affected.
If the ambient temperature will drop below freezing, have
a qualified servicer drain the water supply system to
prevent serious property damage due to flooding from
ruptured water lines or connections.
• Keep the glass at a proper distance from the ice outlet.
A glass held too close to the outlet may prevent ice from
dispensing.
• To avoid personal injury, keep hands out of the ice door
and passage.
• Never remove the icemaker cover.
• If you find ice or water dispensed unexpectedly, turn
off the water supply and contact an Authorized Service
Center. Call 1-800-243-0000 (24 hours a day, 365
days a year) and select the option to locate an
authorized servicer.
28
CONNECTING THE WATER LINE
• If your existing copper water
line has a flared fitting at the
end, you will need an
adapter (available at
plumbing supply stores) to
connect the water line to the
refrigerator OR you can
cut off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then use
a compression fitting.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
This water line installation is not warranted by the
refrigerator or icemaker manufacturer. Follow these
instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive
water damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house
plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and lead
to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to
correct water hammer before installing the water supply
line to the refrigerator.
To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook up
the water line to the hot water line.
If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water
line, make sure the icemaker power switch is in the O (off)
position.
Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
When using any electrical device (such as a power drill)
during installation, be sure the device is double-insulated
or grounded in a manner to prevent the hazard of electric
shock, or is battery-powered.
All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing
code requirements.
• Shutoff valve to connect to
the cold water line. The
shutoff valve should have a
water inlet with a minimum
inside diameter of 5/32" at
the point of connection to the
COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type shutoff valves are
included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing,
make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your local
plumbing codes.
NOTE: Self Piercing Saddle Type Water Valve should
not be used.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: Wear eye protection.
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently used
drinking water line.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1. SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure on
the line.
• Copper Tubing, 1/4" outer
diameter to connect the refrigerator
to the water supply. Be sure both
ends of the tubing are cut square.
2. CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION
Choose a location for the valve that
is easily accessible. It is best to
connect into the side of a vertical
water pipe. When it is necessary to
connect into a horizontal water pipe,
make the connection to the top or
side, rather than at the bottom, to
avoid drawing off any sediment from the water pipe.
To determine how much tubing you need: measure
the distance from the water valve on the back of the
refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then add 8 feet
(2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about
8 feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10" [25 cm]
diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the
wall after installation.
• A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. on models without a water
filter and between 40 and 120 p.s.i. on models with a
water filter.
3. DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a 1/4" hole in the water
pipe using a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs resulting from drilling
the hole in the pipe. Take care
not to allow water to drain into
the drill. Failure to drill a 1/4"
hole may result in reduced ice
production or smaller cubes.
NOTE: The hookup line cannot be white, plastic
tubing. Licensed plumbers must use only copper
tubing NDA tubing #49595 or 49599 or Cross Link
Polyethylene(PEX) tubing.
• Power drill.
• 1/2" or adjustable wrench.
• Straight- and Phillipsblade screwdriver.
• Two 1/4" outer diameter
compression nuts and
2 ferrules (sleeves) to
connect the copper tubing to
the shutoff valve and the
refrigerator water valve.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
• The defrost timer will click when the automatic defrost
cycle begins and ends. The thermostat control (or
refrigerator control, depending on the model) will also
click when cycling on and off.
UNDERSTANDING SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
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, like the floor, walls and
cabinets, can make the sounds seem louder than they
actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds
and what may be making them.
• Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant,
the water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator.
• Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to
keep your food items at the desired temperature.
The high efficiency compressor may cause your new
refrigerator to run longer than your old one, and you may
hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
• You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating the
air through the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
• 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.
• Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost
cycle may cause a sizzling sound.
• 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.
• You can hear the noise occurred from the icing fan at the
freezer or the left side of the refrigerator when doors are
open.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
COMPRESSOR MOTOR SEEMS TO RUN TOO MUCH
Check if…
Then…
The refrigerator that was replaced was an older
model.
Modern refrigerators with more storage space require more
operating time.
The room temperature is hotter than normal.
The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal
room temperatures, expect your motor to run about 40% to
80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it to run
even more often.
The door is opened often or a large amount of food
has just been added.
Adding food and opening the door warms the refrigerator.
It is normal for the refrigerator to run longer in order to cool the
refrigerator back down. Adding a large amount of food warms
the refrigerator. See the Food Storage Guide section on page
18. In order to conserve energy, try to get everything you need
out of the refrigerator at once, keep food organized so it is
easy to find and close the door as soon as the food is
removed.
The refrigerator was recently plugged in and the
refrigerator control was set correctly.
The refrigerator will take up to 24 hours to cool completely.
The refrigerator control is not set correctly for the
surrounding conditions.
See the Adjusting Control Settings section on page 18.
The doors are not closed completely.
Push the doors firmly shut. If they will not shut all the way, see
Doors will not close completely below.
The condenser coils are dirty.
This prevents air transfer and makes the motor work harder.
Clean the condenser coils. Refer to the Care and Cleaning
section on pages 25-26.
DOORS WILL NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY
Check if…
Then…
The refrigerator is not level.
See Leveling and Door Alignment section on page 15.
Food packages are blocking the door open.
Rearrange food containers to clear door and door shelves.
The ice bin, crisper cover, pans, shelves, door bins
or baskets are out of position.
Push bins all the way in and put crisper cover, pans, shelves
and baskets into their correct positions. See the Using Your
Refrigerator section on pages 16–24.
The gaskets are sticking.
Clean gaskets and the surface that they touch. Rub a thin coat
of paraffin wax on the gaskets after cleaning.
The refrigerator wobbles or seems unstable.
Level the refrigerator. Refer to the Leveling and Door
Alignment section on page 15.
The doors were removed during product
installation and not properly replaced.
Remove and replace the doors according to the Removing
and Replacing Refrigerator handles and doors section on
pages 9–14, or call a qualified service technician.
FROST OR ICE CRYSTALS ON FROZEN FOOD
Check if…
Then…
The door is not closing properly.
See Doors will not close completely above.
The door is opened often.
When the door is opened, warm, humid air is allowed in the
freezer, resulting in frost.
33
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
ICE HAS OFF-TASTE OR ODOR
Check if…
Then…
The icemaker was recently installed.
Discard first few batches of ice to avoid discolored or offflavored ice.
The ice has been stored for too long.
Throw away old ice and make new supply.
The food has not been wrapped tightly in either
compartment.
Rewrap foods since odors may migrate to the ice if food is not
wrapped properly.
The water supply contains minerals such as sulfur.
A filter may need to be installed to eliminate taste and odor
problems.
The interior of refrigerator needs cleaning.
See Care and Cleaning section on pages 25-26.
Ice storage bin needs cleaning.
Empty and wash bin. Discard old cubes.
THERE IS WATER IN THE DEFROST DRAIN PAN
Check if…
Then…
The refrigerator is defrosting.
The water will evaporate. It is normal for water to drip into the
defrost pan.
It is more humid than normal.
Expect that the water in the defrost pan will take longer to
evaporate. This is normal when it is hot or humid.
THE REFRIGERATOR SEEMS TO MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE
Check if…
The sounds may be normal for your refrigerator.
Then…
Refer to the Understanding Sounds You May Hear section
on page 32.
THE ICEMAKER IS NOT PRODUCING ICE OR ICE CUBES ARE FREEZING TOO SLOWLY
Check if…
Then…
The freezer temperature is cold enough to produce
ice.
Wait 24 hours after hook-up for ice production. See the
Setting the Controls section on page 16.
Door left open.
Check to see if something is holding the door open.
CUBES PRODUCED BY ICEMAKER ARE TOO SMALL
Check if…
Then…
Smaller cube size level is selected.
Select larger cube size using cube size selector.
Water shutoff valve connecting refrigerator to
water line may be clogged.
Call a plumber to clear the valve.
34
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
THE DOORS ARE DIFFICULT TO OPEN
Check if…
Then…
The gaskets are dirty or sticky.
Clean gaskets and the surfaces that they touch. Rub a thin
coat of appliance polish or kitchen wax on the gaskets after
cleaning.
The door is reopened within a short time after
having been opened.
When you open the door, warmer air enters the refrigerator.
As the warm air cools, it can create a vacuum. If the door is
hard to open, wait 5 minutes to allow the air pressure to
equalize, then see if it opens more easily.
TEMPERATURE IS TOO WARM OR THERE IS INTERIOR MOISTURE BUILDUP
Check if…
Then…
The air vents are blocked. Cold air circulates from
the freezer to the fresh food section and back
again through air vents in the wall dividing the two
sections.
Locate air vents by using your hand to sense airflow and move
all packages that block vents and restrict airflow.
The doors are opened often.
When the door is opened, warm humid air is allowed into the
refrigerator. The more the door is opened, the faster the
humidity builds up, and the more warm air the refrigerator must
cool. In order to keep the refrigerator cool, try to get everything
you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep food organized
so it is easy to find and close the door as soon as the food is
removed.
The control is not set correctly for the surrounding
conditions.
Refer to the Setting the Controls section on page 16.
Wait 24 hours for temperatures to stabilize or even out. If the
temperature is too cold or too warm, move the dial one
number at a time.
A large amount of food has just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer.
Adding food warms the refrigerator. It can take a few hours for
the refrigerator to return to normal temperature.
The food is not packaged correctly.
Wrap food tightly and wipe off damp containers prior to storing
in the refrigerator to avoid moisture accumulation. If
necessary, repackage food according to the guidelines in the
Food Storage Guide section on page 18.
The doors are not closing completely.
See Doors will not close completely on page 33.
The weather is humid.
In humid weather, air carries moisture into refrigerator when
doors are opened.
A self-defrost cycle was completed.
It is normal for droplets to form on the back wall after the
refrigerator self-defrosts.
