IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Bar Refrigerator with Icemaker
REFRIGERANTS
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants, which under
federal law must be removed prior to product disposal.
If you are getting rid of an old refrigeration product, check
with the company handling the disposal about what to do.
CONNECTING ELECTRICITY
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard.
Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet
Do not remove the ground prong
Do not use an adapter
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
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.
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. Do
not use an adapter.
Use of a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) is not
recommended for the bar refrigerator with icemaker.
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.
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.
When moving the refrigerator away from the wall, be
careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

Ice storage
bin
The icemaker will produce seven cubes
per cycle—approximately 100–130 cubes
in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer
compartment temperature, room temperature,
number of door openings and other use
conditions.
If the bar refrigerator with icemaker is operated
before the water connection is made to the
water valve, set the icemaker power switch to
O (off).
When the unit has been connected to the water
supply, set the icemaker power switch to I (on).
The green light will come on.
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to
15°F (–10°C). A newly installed bar refrigerator
with icemaker may take 12 to 24 hours to begin
making ice cubes.
You will hear a buzzing sound each time the
icemaker fills with water.
Throw away the first few batches 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.
To remove, pull the icemaker drawer fully open
and remove the transportable ice storage bin by
lifting up and out.
NOTE: Ice can fall behind the ice storage bin.
Prior to replacing the bin, check for any fallen
ice.
If the ice storage bin is removed from the
refrigerator for an extended period of time, we
recommend setting the icemaker power switch
to O (off).
To replace, grasp the side of the right side of

Normal
operating
sounds
Newer appliances sound different from older appliances. Modern appliances have more features
and use newer technology.
Do you hear what I hear? These sounds are normal.
HUMMM...
WHOOSH...
• The new high efficiency compressor
may run faster and longer than your
old appliance and you may hear a highpitched hum or pulsating sounds while
it is operating.
• Sometimes the appliance runs for an
extended period, especially when the doors
are opened frequently.
• You may hear a whooshing sound when
the doors close. This is due to pressure
equalizing within the appliance.
• The cabinet fan runs continuously except
when the door is opened.
CLICKS, POPS,
CRACKS and CHIRPS
• You may hear clicking, cracking or popping
sounds when the appliance cools to the
correct temperature or immediately following
defrost.
• The electronic control board may cause
a clicking sound when relays activate to
control appliance components.
• Expansion and contraction of cooling coils
during and after defrost can cause cracking
or popping sounds.
• After an icemaking cycle, you may hear the
ice cubes dropping into the ice bucket.
• You may hear the fans spinning at
high speeds. This happens when the
appliance is first plugged in, when the door
is opened frequently or when a large amount
of food is added to the appliance. The fans
help maintain desired temperatures.
• If the door is open for over 3 minutes,
you may hear the fans come on in order to
cool the light bulbs.
• The fans change speeds in order to provide
optimal cooling and energy savings.
WATER SOUNDS
• 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.
• A water dripping noise may occur during
the defrost cycle as ice melts from the
evaporator and flows into the drain pan.
• Closing the door may cause a gurgling
sound due to pressure equalization.
For additional information on normal
icemaker and dispenser operating
sounds, see the Automatic
Icemaker section in the Bar
Refrigerator with Icemaker Owner’s
Manual only.
