up to 17.6 pounds of ice. Remove
unused ice periodically to reduce
the potential for off-taste or odor
build-up in the ice.
IMPORTANT: The first few batches
of ice from the ice maker may have
an off-taste. This is from new
plumbing and parts, and the ice
should be thrown away.

dispenser bar is released, a buzzing
sound may be heard for a few
To dispense chilled water:
Press a sturdy glass against the
water dispenser bar. Remove the
glass to stop dispensing.
Chilled water comes from a
50 oz. tank behind the crisper/
utility drawer. Allow about 24 hours
to chill the first tankful.
When the refrigerator is first
hooked up, press the water
dispenser bar with a glass or jar
until you have drawn and
discarded 2-3 quarts of water. This
will remove the air in the system
and rinse the tank and pipes.
If the dispenser is not used
regularly, dispense enough water
every week to freshen the supply.
Allow 2-3 hours for the new supply
of water to chill.

Sounds You May Hear
Your new refrigerator may make different sounds than your previous one. Hard
surfaces such as the ceiling, walls and cabinets around the refrigerator can make
sounds seem louder.
The following chart describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and
what causes them.
Hum or hiss
The refrigerators fan motor and moving air.
Clicking or
snapping sounds
The thermostat makes a definite click when the
refrigerator stops running. It also makes a
sound when the refrigerator starts. The defrost
timer will click when the defrost cycle starts
and stops.
Ice Maker Sounds
¢ trickling water
® clatter of ice
You may hear buzzing (from the water valve),
trickling water and the clatter of ice falling into
the bin.
Running sounds
The high-efficiency compressor and motor will
run longer than older designs. On some
models, the internal fan motor may
occasionally run when the compressor is off.
Trickling water/
water sounds
During the defrost cycle, the refrigerator will
not be running. The trickling water is the frost
accumulation on the freezer coil melting and
running into the defrost pan. When the
refrigerator stops running, you may hear
gurgling in the tubing for a few minutes.
Warm air from
upper ventilation
panel/base grille
You may feel air blowing from behind the
upper ventilation panel and base grille when
the refrigerator is running. This is normal.
To Save Energy
* Open the doors as few times as
possible. Keep food organized so
you do not have to search for
what you want. Get everything
you need out at one time. Close
the door as soon as food is
* Fill the refrigerator, but do not
overcrowd it so air movement is
* Set the refrigerator and freezer
compartment temperatures to
suit your needs-ice cream should
be firm and beverages should be
as cold as you like them. Avoid
setting the refrigerator and
freezer compartment
temperatures colder than is
* Keep condenser coils clean.

page 20.

Cleaning the Refrigerator-Freezer
The refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically. However, both should be
cleaned once a month to help prevent odors from building up. Spills should be
wiped up immediately.
To clean, tum off the electricity at the power on/off switch (behind the upper
ventilation panel); take out all removable parts and clean the refrigerator according
to the directions given below. Be sure power on/off switch is in the ON position
when cleaning is finished.

Vacation and Moving Care
Short Vacations
If you will be away for less than four
weeks, there is no need to shut off
the refrigerator. Use up
perishables and freeze other items.
Tum off the automatic ice maker,
then shut off the water supply to
the ice maker. Empty the ice bin.
Long Vacations
Remove all food if you will be gone
a month or more. Tum off the water
supply to the ice maker at least one
day before you leave. When the last
load of ice drops into the bin, tum
the ice maker off. Turn the
refrigerator-freezer off. {See
“Temperature Controls” on page 7.)
