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. Through a series of product choices, the Monogram refrigerator can be
beautifully integrated into the kitchen.
Since this is designed to be 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
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
w WARNING – When using
this appliance, always exercise basic safety
precautions, including the following:
• Use this appliance only for its intended
purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.
• This refrigerator must be properly installed
in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used.
• Do not allow children to climb, stand or
hang on the shelves in the refrigerator.
They could damage the refrigerator and
seriously injure themselves.
• After your refrigerator is in operation,
do not touch the cold surfaces in the
freezer compartment, particularly when
hands are damp or wet. Skin may adhere
to these extremely cold surfaces.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• In refrigerators with an automatic icemaker,
avoid contact with the moving parts of the
ejector mechanism, or with the heating
element located on the bottom of the
icemaker. Do not place fingers or hands on
the automatic icemaking mechanism while
the refrigerator is plugged in.
• Keep fingers out of the “pinch point” areas:
clearances between the doors and between
the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful closing doors when children are
in the area.
• Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning
and making repairs. NOTE: We strongly
recommend that any servicing be performed
by a qualified individual.
• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb,
set the Master Light switch in the OFF
position to turn off the lights in order to
avoid contact with a live wire filament.
(A burned-out light bulb may break when
being replaced.) NOTE: Setting the
refrigerator temperature controls to OFF
does not remove power to the light circuit.
• Do not refreeze frozen foods which have
thawed completely.
w DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
Child entrapment and suffocation are not
problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
refrigeration products are still dangerous…
even if they will sit for “just a few days.”
If you are getting rid of your old appliance,
please follow these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
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.
4
Before You Throw Away Your Old
Refrigeration Product:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children
may not easily climb inside.
IMPORTANTES INSTRUCTIONS DE SÉCURITÉ
LIRE ET CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS
w AVERTISSEMENT :
Lorsque vous utilisez le réfrigérateur,
observez toujours certaines précautions
de base, notamment :
• N’utilisez le réfrigérateur que pour son usage
prévu, comme décrit dans le présent manuel.
• Installez le réfrigérateur conformément aux
directives d’installation avant de l’utiliser.
• Ne laissez pas les enfants grimper, s’asseoir,
se tenir debout ni se pendre aux clayettes du
réfrigérateur. Ils pourraient endommager le
réfrigérateur et se blesser gravement.
• Une fois le réfrigérateur en marche, ne
touchez pas les surfaces froides du
congélateur, surtout si vous avez les mains
humides ou mouillées : la peau risque
d’adhérer à ces surfaces très froides.
• N’entreposez et n’utilisez pas d’essence ou
autres vapeurs et liquides inflammables à
proximité de cet appareil ou de tout autre
appareil électroménager.
• Pour les réfrigérateurs dotés d’une machine

REMARQUE : Lorsque vous placez les
commandes de température du réfrigérateur
sur OFF (arrêt), l’alimentation électrique
de l’ampoule n’est pas coupée.
• Ne faites PAS recongeler des aliments
surgelés qui ont complètement dégelé.
w DANGER! RISQUES POUR LES ENFANTS
Les enfants pris au piège ou morts d’asphyxie
sont toujours d’actualité. Les appareils de
réfrigération abandonés sont toujours aussi
dangereux, même si on n’attend que “quelque
jours” pour s’en débarasser. Si vous ne gardez
pas votre ancien appareil, veuillez suivre les
directives ci-dessous afin de prévenir les
accidents.
Avant de vous débarasser de votre vieux
appareil de réfrigération:
• Démontez les portes.
• Laissez les clayettes en place afin d’empêcher
les enfants de grimper à l’intérieur.
RÉFRIGÉRANTS
Tous les appareils de réfrigération contiennent
des réfrigérants qui, conformément aux lois
fédérales, doivent être enlevés avant toute
élimination de l’appareil. Si vous vous
débarrassez de vieux appareils de réfrigération,
vérifiez, auprès de la société qui s’occupe de
leur élimination, ce que vous devez faire.

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.
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 PLUG TO
CONNECT THE REFRIGERATOR TO
A 2-PRONG OUTLET.
DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD
WITH THIS APPLIANCE.
Never unplug an appliance by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the 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 appliance, 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.
The appliance 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.

Important
facts about
your ice
& water
dispenser
Access Door
Ice Storage Bin
Rotate
Drive
Mechanism
• Do not add ice from trays or bags to the
storage bin. It may not crush or dispense well.
• After crushed ice is dispensed, some water
may drip from the chute.
• Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of
narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice
can jam the chute or cause the door in the
chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the
chute, poke it through with a wooden spoon.
• Sometimes a mound of snow will form on
the door in the ice chute. This condition is
normal and usually occurs when you have
dispensed crushed ice repeatedly. The snow
will eventually evaporate.
• Beverages and foods should not be
quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage bin may cause the icemaker
or auger to jam.
• Dispensed water is not ice cold. For colder
water, simply add crushed ice or cubes
before dispensing water.
• To keep dispensed ice from missing
the glass, put the glass close to, but not
touching, the dispenser opening.
• The first glass of water dispensed may be
warmer than the following ones. This is
normal.
• To eliminate drips on the spill shelf, tilt the
glass in slightly when dispensing water.
• Some crushed ice may be dispensed even
though you selected CUBES. This happens
occasionally when a few cubes accidentally
get directed to the crusher.
11
Automatic Icemaker
Built-In Refrigerators
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, depending on freezer compartment
temperature, room temperature, number of
door openings and other use conditions.
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). The green light will come on.
Throw away the first full bucket of ice.
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.
12
Green Power
Light
Feeler Arm
After the icemaker has been turned on again,
there will be a delay of about 45 minutes
before the icemaker resumes operations.
NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average
water pressure, you may hear the icemaker
water valve cycle on several times when
making one batch of ice.
Climate Control Drawer
Built-In Refrigerators
Climate
Control
drawer
How it Works
The Climate Control feature is a system of
dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor,
a heater and a specially designed tray.
The Climate Control drawer can be used
to chill items quickly, thaw foods quickly or
store items at their optimum temperatures.
The drawer is tightly sealed to prevent the
drawer’s temperature from causing temperature
fluctuations in the rest of the refrigerator.
SELECT TEMP—Use this feature to store
items at their optimum temperatures.
The CITRUS setting will maintain a drawer
temperature of 39–47°F by cycling a small
heater off and on as needed. The PRODUCE
setting will maintain the drawer temperature
at 31–38°F by drawing in additional cold air as
needed. The MEAT setting will maintain the
drawer temperature at 27–37°F by drawing in
additional cold air as needed.
EXPRESS THAW—This feature thaws items
in hours rather than days. Food is gently
thawed in a cool environment by circulating
air throughout the drawer. Temperature is
maintained in the drawer by cycling a small
heater off and on as needed. Once the thaw
cycle is complete, the pan will automatically
adjust to a temperature of 27–37°F to store the
food at its optimum temperature.
Climate Control Tray—Besides using the
specially designed Climate Control tray
when using the drawer, it can also be used
as a chilled serving tray to keep foods cold.
NOTE: By turning the controls on the Climate
Control drawer off, the drawer can be used as a
standard sealed produce pan.
EXPRESS CHILL—This feature can be used
to cool items in minutes, rather than hours.
Extra cool air is circulated throughout the
drawer. Once the cycle is complete, the
drawer will revert to the pre-set fresh food
temperature.
How to Use
1 Empty the drawer. Place the tray in the
drawer. Place the items on the tray and
close the drawer completely.
2 Select the Express Thaw,™ Express Chill™ or
Select Temp™ pad. The display will come on.
Press the pad until the light appears next
to the desired setting. Use the chart on the
next page to determine the best setting.
• To stop a feature before it is finished,
press that feature’s pad until no options
are selected and the display is off.
• The displayed actual temperature of the
Climate Control drawer may vary slightly
from the SET temperature based on usage
and operation environment.
NOTE: For food safety reasons, it is
recommended that foods be wrapped in
plastic wrap when using Express Thaw.™
This will help contain meat juices and
improve thawing performance.
• During Express Thaw™ and Express Chill,™
the display on the controls will count
down the time remaining in the cycle.
• After the Express Thaw™ cycle is
complete, the drawer will reset to the
MEAT setting (27–37°F) to help preserve
thawed items until they are used.

Sabbath
Mode
Product Kit
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.
DISPLAYS, ALARMS and LIGHTS—The main
temperature control and Express Chill displays
will be deactivated; therefore they will not be
lit, sound a tone or operate when touched.
Door alarms and lights will be disabled.
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.
ICE and WATER DISPENSER—The proximity
sensor and dispenser touch sensor icons will
not operate. Ice or water cannot be retrieved
from the dispenser.
(available at
extra cost)
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 grill
panel, set the Sabbath Mode switch to the
ON position. A green LED light will be visible
below the Sabbath Mode Kit switch. The light
will be visible when the grille is closed between
the grille door and compartment doors.
18
ICEMAKER—The icemaker will continue
to operate. The icemaker can be disabled by
opening the freezer, opening the ice storage
bin door and setting the icemaker power
switch to the O (off) position (see Automatic
Icemaker). To obtain ice, open the freezer door
and remove the cubed ice from the ice bin.
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

Care and Cleaning
Built-In Refrigerators
Cleaning
outside
The dispenser spill shelf
and the area beneath it
should be cleaned
periodically with a mild
liquid dish detergent.
Dispenser cradle—Before cleaning, lock the
dispenser by touching CONTROL LOCK for
3 seconds to prevent activating the dispenser.
Clean with warm water and a mild liquid
dish detergent. Rinse thoroughly and
wipe dry. Unlock the dispenser by touching
CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds.
Do not use chemical cleaners to clean the
dispenser or any part of the dispenser.
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.
Cleaning
inside
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.
Do not wipe the refrigerator with a soiled
dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave
a residue that can damage the finish. Do not
use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach
or cleaners containing bleach because these
products can scratch and damage the finish.
Stainless steel—Regularly clean and polish
the Stainless Steel Door Panels and Handles
(on some models) with a commercially
available stainless steel cleaner such as Stainless
Steel Magic™ to preserve and protect the fine
finish. Stainless Steel Magic and the Monogram
polishing cloth are available through GE Parts
and Accessories, 800.626.2002, or ge.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.
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.
Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts
in the dishwasher.
Do not wash the aluminum Climate Control
tray in the dishwasher. The aluminum will
discolor in the dishwasher.
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.

PROBLEM
REFRIGERATOR
DOES NOT OPERATE
MOTOR OPERATES
FOR LONG PERIODS
OR CYCLES ON AND
OFF FREQUENTLY
(Modern refrigerators
with more storage
space and a larger
freezer require
more operating time.
They start and stop
often to maintain
even temperatures.)
OPERATING
SOUNDS
POSSIBLE CAUSE
• May be in defrost cycle when compressor does not operate for about
30 minutes.
• Temperature control set at OFF.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.

For the sixth through twelfth year from the date of the original purchase, we will provide, free of charge,
replacement parts for any part of the sealed refrigerating system (the compressor, condenser, evaporator and all
