Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
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
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
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.
• Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment 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 automatic icemakers,
avoid contact with 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
refrigerators are still dangerous…even if they
will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting
rid of your old refrigerator, please follow the
instructions below to help prevent accidents.
Before You Throw Away Your Old
Refrigerator or Freezer:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children
may not easily climb inside.
CFC DISPOSAL
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling
system that used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons).
CFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone.
4
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator,
make sure the CFC refrigerant is removed for
proper disposal by a qualified servicer. If you
intentionally release this CFC refrigerant you
can be subject to fines and imprisonment
under provisions of environmental legislation.
LIRE ET CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS
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
à glaçons automatique, évitez le contact avec
les pièces mobiles du mécanisme éjecteur,

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 débarrasser de votre vieux
appareil de réfrigération :
• Démontez les portes.
• Laissez les clayettes en place afin d’empêcher
les enfants de grimper à l’intérieur.
SE DÉBARRASSER DU CFC
Votre ancien réfrigérateur peut avoir un
système de refroidissement qui a utilisé les CFC
(chlorofluorocarbones). Les CFCs sont jugés
nocifs pour l’ozone stratosphérique.
Si vous débarrassez de votre viel appareil de
réfrigération, assurez-vous que le frigorigène
avec CFC soit enlevé correctement par un
technicien qualifié. Si vous libérez
intentionnellement ce frigogène avec CFC
vouz pouvez être soumis aux contraventions
et à l’emprisonnement après les stipulations
des lois sur l’environment.

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.
Cleaning
inside
To help prevent odors, leave an open box
of baking soda in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments.
Unplug the refrigerator 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.
The stainless steel panels and door handles
(on some models) can be cleaned with a
commercially available stainless steel cleaner
such as Stainless Steel Magic.™
Stainless Steel Magic is available at Ace, True
Value, Servistar, HWI and other leading stores.
It is also available through GE Parts and
Accessories, 800.626.2002. Order part number
WX10X15.
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. 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. Bumping tempered glass can cause it
to shatter.
Do not wash any plastic refrigerator parts in
the dishwasher.
Condenser
There is no need for routine condenser
cleanings in normal home operating
environments. However, in environments that
may be particularly dusty or greasy, the
condenser should be cleaned annually
for efficient refrigerator operation.
To clean the condenser:
Condenser Coils
Clean the condenser periodically with a brush.
1 Turn off the power at the circuit breaker
or fuse box. Wait about 30 minutes for the
condenser area to cool.
2 Raise the grille panel at the top of the
refrigerator.
3 Use a soft bristle brush to loosen dust and lint
on the condenser fins. Use a vacuum hose to
remove soil.
4 Lower the grille panel.
5 Reconnect power at the fuse box or
circuit breaker.
