in many water
supply kits. Before
purchasing, make
sure a saddle-type
valve complies with
your local plumbing codes.
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.
3 DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a ¼ in. (6.35 mm) hole
in the water pipe using
a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs resulting
from drilling the hole
in the pipe. Be careful
not to allow water
to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a ¼ in.
(6.35 mm) hole may result in reduced ice
production or smaller cubes.
NOTE
A self piercing saddle type water valve
should not be used.
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.

How to
Butter or
Margarine
Keep opened butter in a covered
dish or closed compartment.
When storing an extra supply, wrap
in freezer packaging and freeze.
Cheese
Store in the original wrapping
until you are ready to use it. Once
opened, re-wrap tightly in plastic
wrap or aluminum foil.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For coldest milk,
place containers on interior shelf.
Eggs
Store in the original carton on
interior shelf, not on the door shelf.
Fruit
Do not wash or hull the fruit until it
is ready to be used. Sort and keep
fruit in its original container, in a
crisper, or store it in a completely
closed paper bag on a refrigerator

Vegetables
with skins
(carrots,
peppers)
Place in plastic bags or plastic
container and store in crisper.
Fish
Store fresh fish and shellfish in
the freezer section if they are not
being consumed the same day of
purchase. It is recommended to
consume fresh fish and shellfish
the same day as purchased.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap
or aluminum foil or store in plastic
containers with tight lids.
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.

mild detergent in warm water. Do not
use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
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

are not cooling.
Cooling System
runs too much.
Possible Causes
Solutions
The refrigerator control is set to
OFF (some models).
Turn the control ON. Refer to the Setting the
Controls section for proper temperature settings.
The refrigerator is in the defrost
cycle.
During the defrost cycle, the temperature of each
compartment may rise slightly. Wait 30 minutes
and confirm the proper temperature has been
restored once the defrost cycle has completed.
The refrigerator was recently
installed.
It may take up to 24 hours for each compartment
to reach the desired temperature.
The refrigerator was recently
relocated.
If the refrigerator was stored for a long period of
time or moved on its side, it is necessary for the
refrigerator to stand upright for 24 hours before
connecting it to power.
The refrigerator is replacing an
older model.
Modern refrigerators require more operating
time but use less energy due to more efficient
technology.
The refrigerator was recently
plugged in or the power was
restored.
The refrigerator will take up to 24 hours to cool
completely.
The door opened often or a
large amount of food / hot food
was added.
Adding food and opening the door warms the
refrigerator, requiring the compressor to run
longer in order to cool the refrigerator back down.
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. (Refer to
the Food Storage Guide.)
The doors are not closed
completely.
Firmly push the doors shut.
The refrigerator is installed in a
hot location.
The compressor will run longer under warm
conditions. At normal room temperatures 70°F
(21 °C) expect your compressor to run about 40% to
80% of the time. Under warmer conditions,
expect it to run even more often. The refrigerator
should not be operated above 110°F (43 °C).
The condenser / back cover is
clogged.
Use a vacuum cleaner with an attachment to
clean the condenser cover and vents. Do not
remove the panel covering the condenser coil
area.

Problem
ENGLISH
Refrigerator or
Freezer section is
too warm.
Possible Causes
Solutions
The refrigerator was recently
installed.
It may take up to 24 hours for each compartment
to reach the desired temperature.
The air vents are blocked.
Rearrange items to allow air to flow throughout
the compartment. Refer to the airflow diagram in
the Using Your Refrigerator section.
The doors are opened often or
for long periods of time.
When the doors are opened often or for long
periods of time, warm, humid air enters the
compartment. This raises the temperature and
moisture level within the compartment. To lessen
the effect, reduce the frequency and duration of
door openings.
The unit is installed in a hot
location.
The refrigerator should not be operated in
temperatures above 110°F (43 °C).
A large amount of food or
hot food was added to either
compartment.
Adding food warms the compartment requiring
the cooling system to run. Allowing hot food to
cool to room temperature before putting it in the
refrigerator will reduce this effect.
The doors are not closed
correctly.
See the Doors will not close correctly or pop open
section in Troubleshooting.
The temperature control is not
set correctly.
If the temperature is too warm, adjust the
control one increment at a time and wait for the
temperature to stabilize. Refer to the Setting the

Solutions
The doors are opened often or
for long periods of time.
When the doors are opened often or for long

See the Doors will not close correctly section in
the Troubleshooting section.
The weather is humid.
Humid weather allows additional moisture
to enter the compartments when the doors
are opened leading to condensation or frost.
Maintaining a reasonable level of humidity in the
home will help to control the amount of moisture
that can enter the compartments.
The defrost cycle recently
completed.
During the defrost cycle, the temperature of each
compartment may rise slightly and condensation
may form on the back wall. Wait 30 minutes and
confirm that the proper temperature has been
restored once the defrost cycle has completed.
Food is not packaged correctly.
Food stored uncovered or unwrapped, and damp
containers can lead to moisture accumulation
within each compartment. Wipe all containers
dry and store food in sealed packaging to prevent
condensation and frost.
Food with high water content
was placed near an air vent.
Rearrange items with high water content away
from air vents.
The refrigerator temperature
control is set incorrectly.
If the temperature is too cold, adjust the control
one increment at a time and wait for the
temperature to stabilize. Refer to the Setting the
Controls section for more information.
The refrigerator is installed in a
cold location.
When the refrigerator is operated in temperature
below 41°F (5°C), food can freeze in the
refrigerator compartment. The refrigerator should
not be operated in temperatures below 55°F
(13°C).
The door is opened frequently
or for long periods of time.
When the doors are opened often or for long
