WARNING
You must follow these guidelines to
ensure that your refrigerator’s safety
mechanisms are operating correctly.
•
•
•
•
•
•
The refrigerator must be plugged into
its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz,
AC-only non-GFCI electric outlet.
The power cord of the appliance
is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug for your protection
against electrical shock hazards.
It must be plugged directly into
a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. The receptacle must be
installed in accordance with local

the receptacle to prevent damaging
the power cord.
To avoid electrical shock, unplug the
refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb or LED light.
Performance may be affected if
the voltage varies by 10% or more.
Operating the refrigerator with
insufficient power can damage the
compressor. Such damage is not
covered under your warranty.
Do not plug the unit into an outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull cord
to prevent the refrigerator from being
turned off accidentally.

Connecting the Water Supply 15
WARNING
To avoid electric shock, which can
cause death or severe personal injury,
disconnect the refrigerator from
electrical power before connecting a
water supply line to the refrigerator.
CAUTION
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided
tubing is recommended for the
water supply line. Water supply
tubing made of ¼ inch plastic is
not recommended to be used.
Plastic tubing greatly increases the
potential for water leaks, and the
manufacturer will not be responsible
for any damage if plastic tubing is
used for the supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing
in areas where temperatures fall
below freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning
softener can damage the ice maker.
If the ice maker is connected to soft
water, ensure that the softener is
maintained and working properly.
IMPORTANT
Ensure that your water supply line
connections comply with all local
plumbing codes.
Before installing the water supply line,
you will need:
1. Basic Tools: adjustable wrench,
flat-blade screwdriver, and PhillipsTM
screwdriver
2. Access to a household cold water
line with water pressure between 30
and 100 psi.
3. A water supply line made of ¼ inch
(6.4 mm) OD, copper or stainless
steel tubing. To determine the length
of tubing needed, measure the
distance from the ice maker inlet
valve at the back of the refrigerator
to your cold water pipe. Then add
approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters), so
the refrigerator can be moved out for
cleaning.
4. A shutoff valve to connect the water
supply line to your household water
system.
5. Do NOT reuse compression fitting or
use thread seal tape.
6.
A compression nut and ferrule
(sleeve) for connecting a copper
water supply line to the ice maker
inlet valve.
NOTE
Check with your local building authority
for recommendations on water lines and
associated materials prior to installing
your new refrigerator. Depending
on your local/state building codes,
Electrolux recommends for homes
with existing valves its Smart Choice®
water line kit 5305513409 with a 6
ft. (1.8 meters) Stainless Steel Water
Line and for homes without an existing
valve, Electrolux recommends its Smart
Choice® water line kit 5305510264 with
a 20 ft. (6 meters) Copper Water Line
with self-tapping saddle valve). Please
refer to www.electroluxappliances.com
for more information.
16 Connecting the Water Supply
To connect water supply line to ice
maker inlet valve:
1. Disconnect refrigerator from electric
power source.
2. Place end of water supply line into
sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply
and flush supply line until water
is clear. Turn OFF water supply at
shutoff valve.
3. Remove plastic cap from water valve
inlet and discard cap.
4. If you use copper tubing - Slide brass
compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve)
onto water supply line. Push water
supply line into water valve inlet as far
as it will go (¼ inch / 6.4 mm). Slide
ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and
finger tighten compression nut onto
valve. Tighten another half turn with
a wrench; DO NOT over tighten. See
Figure 1.
If you use braided flexible stainless
steel tubing - The nut is already
assembled on the tubing. Slide nut
onto valve inlet and finger tighten nut
onto valve. Tighten another half turn
with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
See Figure 2.
5. With steel clamp and screw, secure
water supply line (copper tubing only)
to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6. Coil excess water supply line (copper
tubing only), about 2½ turns, behind
refrigerator as shown and arrange
coils so they do not vibrate or wear
against any other surface.
7. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve
and tighten any connections that
leak.
8. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical
power source.
9. To turn ice maker on, lower wire
signal arm (freezer ice maker) or use
the digital control setting to turn the
ice maker’s On/Off switch to the On

glass as necessary).
Ice maker operation &
care
After the refrigerator is installed properly
and has cooled for several hours, the ice
maker can produce ice within 24 hours.
The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the
rear. You must dispense some ice to force
the ice forward in the bin. This will allow
the bin to fill completely.
IMPORTANT
Your ice maker is turned on at the
factory so it can work as soon as you
install your refrigerator. If you cannot
connect a water supply, set the ice
maker’s On/Off icon to Off and turn off
the water supply valve; otherwise, the
ice maker’s fill valve may make a loud
chattering noise when it attempts to
operate without water.
Turning the ice maker on and off
Ice production is controlled by the ice
maker’s On/Off icon on the control panel.
Press and hold the “Ice Off” icon for three
seconds to turn the ice maker “ON” or
“OFF”. When the ice maker is “OFF” the
red LED above the icon will be illuminated.
NOTE
NOTE
The water dispenser has a built-in device that
shuts off the water flow after two minutes of
continuous use. To reset this shutoff device,
simply release the dispenser paddle.
NOTE
Dispensed water is not chilled. For
colder water, add ice to cup or container
before dispensing water.
The ice maker also has a built-in plastic
signal bale arm that automatically stops
ice production when the ice bin is full.
This signal arm should not be used to
manually stop the ice maker.
Using the ice maker after
installation
Before making ice for the first time, be
sure to prime the water supply system.
Air in new plumbing lines can result in
two or three empty ice maker cycles.
Furthermore, if the system is not flushed,
the first ice cubes may be discolored or
have an odd flavor.

Storing Food and Saving Energy 31
Ideas for storing foods
•
Fresh food storage
•
•
Keep the fresh food compartment
between 34° F and 40° F with an
optimum temperature of 37° F.
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator
shelves, which reduces air circulation
and causes uneven cooling.
Fruits and vegetables
•
•
•
Store fruits and vegetables in crisper
drawers, where trapped moisture
helps preserve food quality for longer
time periods.
Wash items and remove excess water.
Wrap any items that have strong
odors or high moisture content.
•
•
Ideas for saving energy
Installation
•
Meat
•
•
Wrap raw meat and poultry separately
and securely to prevent leaks and
contamination of other foods or
surfaces.
Use the deli drawer or Custom TempTM
drawer and set to meat/poultry setting
for short-term storage. Any meat to
be kept longer than two days should
be frozen.
•
•
Frozen food storage
•
•
Keep the freezer compartment at 0° F
or lower.
A freezer operates most efficiently
when it is at least 2/3 full.
Packaging foods for freezing
•
•
•
To minimize food dehydration and
quality deterioration, use aluminum foil,
freezer wrap, freezer bags, or airtight
containers. Force as much air out of
the packages as possible and seal
them tightly. Trapped air can cause
food to dry out, change color, and
develop an off-flavor (freezer burn).
Wrap fresh meats and poultry with
suitable freezer wrap prior to freezing.
Do not refreeze meat that has
completely thawed.
Loading the freezer
•
Prior to grocery shopping, activate
“express freeze” so that on your return
you can ensure your newly purchased
food designated for the freezer will be
preserved as quickly as possible.
Activating “express freeze” also will
help your freezer more efficiently
maintain the selected temperature
after placing new purchases with preexisting frozen foods.
Avoid adding too much warm food to
the freezer at one time. This overloads
the freezer, slows the rate of freezing,
and can raise the temperature of
frozen foods.
Leave a space between packages, so
cold air can circulate freely, allowing
food to freeze as quickly as possible.
Locate the refrigerator in the coolest
part of the room, out of direct sunlight,
and away from heating ducts or
registers.
Do not place the refrigerator next to
heat-producing appliances such as a
range, oven, or dishwasher. If this is
not possible, a section of cabinetry or
an added layer of insulation between
the two appliances will help the
refrigerator operate more efficiently.
Level the refrigerator so that the doors
close tightly.
Temperature settings
•
Refer to the “Controls” section for
procedures on temperature settings.
Food storage
•
•
•
•
Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator
or blocking cold air vents. Doing so
causes the refrigerator to run longer
and use more energy.
Cover foods and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the refrigerator.
This cuts down on moisture build-up
inside the unit.
Organize the refrigerator to reduce
door openings. Remove as many
items as needed at one time and close
the door as soon as possible.
Do not place a hot container directly
on a cold shelf. Remember, such an
extreme temperature change may
damage the glass.
32 Normal Operating Sounds
Understanding the
sounds you may hear
Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator
may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These
sounds normally indicate your refrigerator
is operating correctly. Some surfaces on
floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may
make these sounds more noticeable.
The following is a list of major components
in your refrigerator and the sounds they
can cause:
A Evaporator Refrigerant through the
evaporator may create a boiling or
gurgling sound.
B Evaporator fan You may hear air
being forced through the refrigerator
by the evaporator fan.
C Defrost heater During defrost
cycles, water dripping onto the
defrost heater may cause a hissing
or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a
popping sound may occur.
D Automatic ice maker When ice
has been produced, you will hear
ice cubes falling into the ice bin. Ice
maker fan, water valve activation,
and refrigerant gas fluid may create
sounds from its operation.
E Electronic control & automatic
defrost control These parts can
produce a snapping or clicking sound
when turning the cooling system on
and off.
F Condenser fan You may hear air
being forced through the condenser.
G Compressor Modern, high-efficiency
compressors run much faster than
older models. The compressor may
have a high-pitched hum or pulsating
sound.
H Water valve Makes a buzzing sound
each time it opens to fill the ice
maker.
I Drain pan (not removable) You
may hear water dripping into the
drain pan during the defrost cycle.
J Condenser May create minimal
sounds from forced air.
K Motorized Custom TempTM
drawer damper May produce a light
humming during operation.
L
Ice dispensing paddle When
dispensing ice, you will hear a
snapping, clicking, or popping sound
when the solenoid opens and closes
the ice chute.
M Motorized damper May produce a
light humming during operation.
N Custom TempTM drawer fan Turns
off when door opens or Custom
TempTM drawer is turned off.
NOTE
Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator
is not a sound insulator.
NOTE
During automatic defrost cycle, a red
glow in the back wall vents of your
freezer compartment is normal.
Changing The Water and Air Filters 33
Locating the Filters
Your refrigerator is equipped with water
filtering system. The water filter system
filters all dispensed drinking water, as well
as the water used to produce ice.
Water Filter
The water filter is located at the top right
side of the fresh food compartment.
Replacing the Water Filter
In general, you should change the water
filter every six months to ensure the
highest possible water quality. Water Filter
Status on the user interface prompts
you to replace the filter after a standard
amount of water (125 gallons/473 liters for
PureAdvantage UltraTM) has flowed through
the system.
If your refrigerator has not been used for a
period of time (during moving for example),
change the filter before reinstalling the
refrigerator.
Filter Cartridge
NOTE
When ordering your replacement filter,
please reorder the same filter type that is
currently in your refrigerator.
More about your Advanced
Water Filter
The PureAdvantage UltraTM
ice and water filter system is
tested and certified to NSF/ANSI
Standards 43, 53 and 401 for
the reduction of claims specified
on the performance data sheet.
Do not use with water that is
microbiologically unsafe or of unknown
quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for
cyst reduction may be used on disinfected
waters that may contain filterable cysts.
Test & certification results:
• Rated Capacity - 125 gallons/473 liters for
PureAdvantage UltraTM ice and water filter
• Rated service flow - .65 gallons per minute
• Operating Temp: Min. 33°F, Max. 100°F
• Maximum Rated Pressure 100 pounds per square inch
• Recommended Minimum Operating
Pressure: 30 pounds per square inch
To replace your PureAdvantage UltraTM water filter:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply
off to change the filter. Be ready to wipe
up any small amounts of water released
during the filter replacement.
1 Turn Off the ice maker power switch.
2 Remove the old filter by rotating it
counter-clockwise (to the left) 90
degrees to release it.
3 Slide the old filter cartridge straight

filter will then pull itself inward as it is
rotated. Rotate the filter 90 degrees
until it stops and the grip end is
vertical. You may be able to feel a very
light click as the filter locks into place.
6 Press a drinking glass against the water
dispenser while checking for any leaks at
the filter housing. Any spurts and sputters
that occur as the system purges air out of
the dispenser system are normal.
7 Continue dispensing water for 3-4
minutes or until 1.5 gallons of water
has flowed through the system. You
will likely need to empty and refill your
glass several times.
8 Turn On the ice maker.
9 Press and hold the Water Filter reset
button on the control panel for three
seconds. When the display changes from
Red to Green, the status has been reset.
34 Changing The Water and Air Filters

Care and Cleaning 35
Protecting your investment
Keeping your refrigerator clean maintains its appearance and prevents odor build-up.
Wipe up any spills immediately and clean the freezer and fresh food compartments at
least twice a year.
NOTE
Do not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable
fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches, or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets, or cabinet liners. Do not
use paper towels, scouring pads, or other abrasive cleaning materials.
•
•
•
•
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or strong alkaline
solutions on any surface.
Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with bleach to clean stainless steel.
Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.
Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.
NOTE
If you set your temperature controls to turn off cooling, power to lights and other
electrical components will continue until you unplug the power cord from the wall
outlet.
•
•
•
Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do not use razor blades or other sharp
instruments which can scratch the appliance surface.
Do not remove the serial plate. Removal of your serial plate voids your warranty.
Before moving your refrigerator, raise the anti-tip brackets so the rollers will work
correctly. This will prevent the floor from being damaged.
CAUTION
•
•
•
Pull the refrigerator straight out to move it. Shifting it from side to side may
damage flooring. Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond the plumbing
connections.
Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated surfaces with
wet or damp hands.
Sudden temperature changes can cause glass breakage.
IMPORTANT
If you store or move your refrigerator in freezing temperatures, be sure to completely
drain the water supply system. Failure to do so could result in water leaks when the
refrigerator is put back into service. Contact a service representative to perform this
operation.

Solutions to Common Problems 37
Before you call...
If you experience a problem with your refrigerator or notice a product behavior or
condition that you do not understand, you can usually avoid a call to your service
representative by referring to this section for an answer. Beginning with the following
table, this information includes common problems, causes, and suggested solutions.
Concern Potential Cause
Automatic Ice Maker
Common Solution
Ice maker is •
not making
any ice.
Ice maker is turned off.
•
Refrigerator is not
connected to water line or
water valve is not open.
The water supply line is
kinked.
•
•
The water filter is not
seated properly.
•
•
The water filter may be
clogged with foreign
material.
Freezer ice maker wire
signal arm is being held
up by an item not allowing
it to go in the on or down
position.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Turn on ice maker. For the fresh food
ice maker, press ice maker on-off
once. For the freezer ice maker,
lower the arm to turn the ice maker
on, or raise it and snap it in its upper
position to turn the ice maker off.
Connect the unit to the household
water supply and ensure the water
valve is open.
Ensure that the supply line does not
kink when the refrigerator is pushed
into place against the wall.
Remove and re-install the water
filter. Be sure to rotate it fully into the
locked position position.
If water dispenses slowly or not at
all, or if the filter is six months old or
older, it should be replaced.
Move any item or frozen ice cubes
that may block the signal arm from
being in the on or down position.
Additionally, the ice bin itself may be
out of position so that it prevents the
signal arm from dropping all the way
down. Be sure the bin is pushed all
the way to the rear of the shelf. See
Automatic Ice Maker-Freezer section
in manual.
38 Solutions to Common Problems
Concern Potential Cause
Automatic Ice Maker (Cont’d)
Common Solution
Ice maker is •
not making
enough ice.
Ice maker is producing
less ice than you expect.
•
The water filter may be
clogged with foreign
material.
The water supply line is
kinked.
•
•
Saddle valve on cold
water pipe is clogged
or restricted by foreign
material.
•
•
Heavy traffic, opening
or closing of the doors
excessively.
Freezer control is set too
warm (freezer ice maker).
•
Water pressure is
extremely low. Cut-off and
cut-on pressures are too
low (well systems only).
Reverse osmosis system
is in regenerative phase.
•
•
Ice maker wire signal arm
is being held down by a
package in the freezer
that has fallen against ice
maker.
•
•
Ice cubes are not being
used frequently enough or
interruption of power for
prolonged time.
•
•
Ice cubes are hollow
(shells of ice with water
inside). The hollow cubes
break open in the bin
and leak their water onto
existing ice, which causes
it to freeze together.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Freezer ice
maker will
not stop
making
ice (select
models).
Ice cubes
are freezing
together.
•
•
•
The ice maker will produce
approximately 2.3 pounds of ice (fresh
food ice maker) and 2.5 pounds of
ice (freezer ice maker) every 24 hours
depending on usage conditions.
If water dispenses slower than
normal, or if the filter is six months
old or older, it should be replaced.
Ensure that the supply line does not
kink when the refrigerator is pushed
into place against the wall.
Turn off household water line
valve. Remove valve. Ensure that
valve is not a self-piercing saddle
valve. Clean valve. Replace valve if
necessary.
Press Fast Freeze to temporarily
increase ice production rate. (Freezer
ice maker only.)
Set freezer control to colder setting
to improve performance of the ice
maker (freezer ice maker). Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.
Have someone turn up the cut-off
and cut-on pressure on the water
pump system (well systems only).
It is normal for a reverse osmosis
system to be below 20 psi during the
regenerative phase.
Move any item or frozen ice cubes
that may block the signal arm from
being in the off or upward position.
See Automatic Ice Maker-Freezer
section in manual.
Remove ice container and discard
ice. The ice maker will produce fresh
supply. Ice should be used at least
twice weekly to keep the cubes
separated.
This generally occurs when the ice
maker does not get enough water.
This is usually the result of a clogged
water filter or restricted water supply.
Replace the water filter and if the
condition still occurs check for a
Saddle Valve, water valve not turned
on all the way or kinked water supply
line.
