Introduction
Your new Monogram refrigerator makes an eloquent statement of style, convenience and kitchen
planning flexibility. Whether you chose it for its purity of design, practical storage arrangements
or assiduous attention to detail—or for all of these reasons—you’ll find that your Monogram
refrigerator’s superior blend of form and function will delight you for years to come.
The Monogram refrigerator was designed to provide the flexibility to blend in with your kitchen
cabinetry. Decorative door insert panels allow it to match your kitchen cabinets or blend with your
kitchen decor.
Since the Monogram refrigerator is a built-in product, custom panels are required on the front of the
Monogram refrigerator. Consult your kitchen designer or cabinetmaker for your customized look.
The information on the following pages will help you operate and maintain your refrigerator properly.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
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.
DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER PLUG TO CONNECT
THE REFRIGERATOR TO A 2-PRONG OUTLET.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
WITH THIS APPLIANCE.
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.
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.
When moving the refrigerator away from the
wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the
power cord.
Use of a GFI (Ground Fault Interruptor) is not
recommended for the refrigerator outlet.
Refer to the Installation Instructions for
particular electrical system specifications
for this refrigerator.
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.

Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Automatic
icemaker
A newly-installed refrigerator may take
12–24 hours to begin making ice.
Power Switch
Icemaker
The icemaker will produce seven cubes per
cycle—approximately 15 cycles in a 24-hour
period.
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
connection is made to the icemaker, set the power
switch to O (off).
When the refrigerator has been connected to
the water supply, set the power switch to I (on).
Throw away the first full bucket of ice to allow
the water line to clear.
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.
Feeler Arm
If ice cubes get stuck in the icemaker, set the power
switch to O (off) and remove the cubes. Set the
power switch to I (on) to restart the icemaker.
After the icemaker has been turned on again, there
will be a delay of about 45 minutes before the
icemaker resumes operations.
The ice bucket is conveniently located in the upper
freezer basket. Occasionally ice cubes may spill
out of the bucket. Should the ice cubes fall to the
bottom of the freezer, they are of no concern; they
will sublimate away harmlessly.
NOTE: In homes with low water pressure, you may
hear the icemaker water valve cycle on several
times when making one batch of ice.
Sabbath
Mode
Product Kit
(available at
extra cost)
The Sabbath Mode Product Kit was designed for
use on the Jewish Sabbath and Holidays. The
Sabbath Mode feature makes it possible for
observant Jews to refrigerate and freezer food
during the duration of the holiday.
The Sabbath Mode feature can be set to override
typical reactions to actions in your refrigerator.
While in the Sabbath Mode, your refrigerator will
still operate normally. However, the refrigerator
will not respond to your actions.
While in the Sabbath Mode, you may notice
the fan running when the door is opened;
however, this is not a result of your actions. The
fan will operate at random times. The defrost
heater will continue to defrost the refrigerator
and freezer and will be activated on a timer. The
defrost heater will not defrost as a result of door
openings or any consumer actions.
ON/OFF—To activate, raise the top grille
panel, set the Sabbath Mode switch to the
ON position. A green LED light will be visible
below the Sabbath Mode Kit switch. The green
light may not be visible with the top grille panel
closed. If you are not sure if the unit is in
Sabbath Mode, raise the grille panel and
see if the green light is on.
DISPLAYS, ALARMS and LIGHTS—The main
temperature control, door alarms and lights
will be disabled.
ICEMAKER—The icemaker will be disabled.
This Sabbath Mode Product Kit can be purchased
from your local appliance dealer. The ZSAB1 Kit
is designed for use with Monogram Built-In
Refrigerators: 36″, 42″ and 48″ Side-by-Side
models manufactured after February 2004 and

Care and Cleaning
Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Cleaning
outside
The 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.
Do not wipe the refrigerator with a soiled dish
cloth or wet towel. These may leave a residue
that can erode the paint. Do not use scouring
pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners
containing bleach because these products
can scratch and weaken the paint finish.
The stainless steel panels and door handles
(on some models) should be regularly cleaned
with a commercially available stainless steel
cleaner such as Stainless Steel Magic.™
Stainless Steel Magic and the Monogram
polishing cloth are available to preserve
and protect the fine finish, through
GE Parts and Accessories, 800.626.2002,
or GEAppliances.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.
Cleaning
inside
To help prevent odors, leave an open box
of baking soda in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments.
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.
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 at the hinge side. This helps
keep the gaskets from sticking and bending
out of shape.
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.
Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts
in the dishwasher.

PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
REFRIGERATOR
DOES NOT OPERATE
• May be in defrost cycle when compressor does not operate for about
30 minutes.
• Temperature control in the OFF position.
• 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.
MOTOR OPERATES
FOR LONG PERIODS
OR CYCLES ON AND
OFF FREQUENTLY
• 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.
(Modern refrigerators
with more storage
space and a larger
freezer require
more operating time.
They start and stop
often to maintain
even temperatures.)
THUMPING SOUND
• This is a normal operating sound.
WHEN DOOR IS CLOSED • The mechanism that closes the door makes a slight thumping sound as
it passes over its lever point, at approximately 80 degrees.
• Closing the door slowly will minimize the sound.
OPERATING
SOUNDS
• Refrigerator is so quiet, that most of the time you will hear low or no
operating noise.
• 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.

soon. Level cubes in bin.
• Ice cubes stuck in icemaker. Turn off the icemaker, remove cubes
and turn the icemaker back on.
• Not unusual during periods of high humidity. Wipe surface dry.
• Door left open or package holding door open.
• Controlling humidity and temperature in the kitchen with air
conditioning will eliminate this condition.
• In humid weather, air carries moisture into refrigerator when doors
are opened.
• Controlling humidity and temperature in the kitchen with air
conditioning will eliminate this condition.
• Foods with strong odors should be tightly covered.
