IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Child Safety
Destroy or recycle the carton, plastic bags, and any
exterior wrapping material immediately after the
refrigerator is unpacked. Children should NEVER
use these items to play. Cartons covered with rugs,
bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become
airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.
Proper Disposal of your Refrigerator or
Freezer
Risk of child entrapment
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the
past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators or freezers are
still dangerous – even if they will sit for “just a few days”.
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or freezer,
please follow the instructions below to help prevent
accidents.
Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers
We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/
disposal methods. Check with your utility company or
visit www.energystar.gov/recycle for more information on
recycling your old refrigerator.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator/
freezer:
• Remove doors.
• Leave shelves in place
so children may not
easily climb inside.
Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit. Do not use an
extension cord or adapter plug.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced
by an authorized service technician to prevent any
risk.
• Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly, and
pull straight out from the receptacle to prevent
damaging the power cord.
• Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before
replacing a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.
• 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 electrical outlet
controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to prevent
the refrigerator from being turned off accidentally.
IMPORTANT
Pressing and holding the On/Off button for 3
seconds, located on the temperature control panel,
will disable your refrigerator’s cooling system but does
not disconnect the power to the light bulb and other
electrical components. To turn off power to your
refrigerator you must unplug the power cord from the
electrical outlet.
• Have refrigerant
removed by a qualified
service technician.
WARNING
These guidelines must be followed to ensure that
safety mechanisms in this refrigerator will operate
properly.
Electrical information
• The refrigerator must be plugged into its
own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp, AC
only electrical 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

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
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:
• Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade
screwdriver, and PhillipsTM screwdriver
• Access to a household cold water line with water
pressure between 30 and 100 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6.4mm) 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 (as shown).
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to
your household water system. DO NOT use a selfpiercing type shutoff valve.
• Do not re-use compression fitting or use thread seal tape.
• 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, Frigidaire recommends for
homes with existing valves its Smart Choice® water line kit
5305513409 (with a 6 ft. Stainless Steel Water Line) and
for homes without an existing valve, Frigidaire recommends
its Smart Choice® water line kit 5305510264 (with a 20 ft.
Copper Water Line with self-tapping saddle valve). Please
refer to www.frigidaire.com/store for more information.
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 stainless steel tubing - The nut and
ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide
compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten
compression 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.

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 (2) or three (3) empty ice maker cycles.
Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice
cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
IMPORTANT
On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed
in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in
normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing
these more frequently, it may be an indication of low
water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and
becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered
to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it’s
been six (6) months or longer since you last changed
your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one.
Poor quality household water may require the filter to be
changed more frequently.
Turning the fresh food 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 (3) seconds to turn the ice maker “ON” or
“OFF”. The ice maker is turned off when the LED above
the “Ice Off” icon is illuminated.

Ice maker/dispenser tips
• If your refrigerator is not connected to a water
supply or the water supply is turned off, turn off
the ice maker by holding the On/Off soft-touch
icon for three (3) seconds.
• The following sounds are normal when the ice
maker is operating:
- Motor running - Ice dropping into ice bin
- Water valve opening or closing
- Running water
• When dispensing ice, you will hear a snapping or
clicking sound when the ice chute opens and closes.
• If you need a large quantity of ice at one time, it is
best to get cubes directly from the ice bin.
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd
flavor. Empty the ice bin as explained below.
• When dispensing cubed ice, it is normal to have a small
quantity of little pieces along with the whole cubes.
CAUTION
If the water supply to your refrigerator is softened, be
sure the softener is properly maintained. Chemicals
from a water softener can damage the ice maker.
Cleaning the ice maker
• An extended power failure (one hour or longer)
causes ice cubes in the ice bin to melt and freeze
together, jamming the dispenser mechanism.
• You do not use the ice dispenser frequently. Ice
cubes will freeze together in the bin, jamming the
dispenser mechanism.
Remove the ice bin and shake to loosen the cubes or
clean as explained above.
CAUTION
NEVER use an ice pick or similar sharp instrument to
break up the ice. This could damage the ice bin and
dispenser mechanism.
To loosen stuck ice, use warm water. Before replacing
the ice bin, make sure it is completely dry.
IMPORTANT
When removing or replacing the ice bin, DO NOT rotate
the auger in the ice bin. If the auger is accidentally rotated,
you must realign the auger by turning it in 45 degree turns
(see below) until the ice bin fits into place with the drive
mechanism. If the auger is not properly aligned when
replacing the ice bin, the refrigerator will not dispense ice.
The fresh food door also may not close properly causing
warm air to leak into the fresh food compartment.
Clean the ice maker and ice bin at regular intervals,
especially prior to vacation or moving.
1 Turn off the ice maker.
2 Remove the ice bin by
pulling straight out.
3 Empty and carefully
clean the ice bin with
mild detergent. Do not

Operation & Care of the Freezer
Ice Maker (select models)
After the refrigerator is installed properly, the ice maker
can produce ice within 24 hours. It can completely fill the
ice bin in about three (3) days.
When using the ice maker for the first time and in order
for the ice maker to work properly, it is necessary to
clear air from water filter tubing. Once ice maker begins
making ice, allow the bucket to fill completely, then
discard the first TWO (2) FULL buckets of ice. It will
take at least two (2) days to completely fill the bucket on
regular ice making mode or 1 1/2 days on fast ice mode.
The ice maker produces approximately four (4) pounds of
ice every 24 hours depending on usage conditions.
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, lift the ice maker’s wire
signal arm to turn it off. Otherwise, the ice maker’s
fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it
attempts to operate without water.

STORING FOOD AND SAVING ENERGY
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.
Meat
• Wrap raw meat and poultry separately and securely
to prevent leaks and contamination of other foods
or surfaces.
• Use the deli drawer to store meat/poultry for shortterm storage. Any meat to be kept longer than two
(2) 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 “quick 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 “quick freeze” also will help your freezer
more efficiently maintain the selected temperature
after placing new purchases with pre-existing
frozen foods.
24
• 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.
Ideas for saving energy
Installation
• 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 heatproducing 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 (2) 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.
NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS AND SIGHTS
Understanding the sounds you
may hear
 NOTE
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.
Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator is not a sound
insulator.
 NOTE
The following is a list of major components in your
refrigerator and the sounds they can cause:
During automatic defrost cycle, a red glow in the back
wall vents of your freezer compartment is normal.
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.
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.

• Saddle valve on cold water pipe
is clogged or restricted by foreign
material.
• Turn on ice maker. For the fresh food ice maker, press and
hold the “Ice Off” button for 4 seconds until the indicator turns
off. For the freezer ice maker, lower the wire signal arm.
• Connect the unit to the household water supply and ensure
the supply 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 push the
filter firmly so that you hear it lock solidly into position.
• If water dispenses slowly or not at all, or if the filter is six (6)
months old or older, it should be replaced.
• Turn off household water line valve. Remove valve. Ensure
that valve is not a self-piercing saddle valve. Clean valve.
Replace valve if necessary.
• The fresh food and freezer ice makers will each produce
approximately 2.5 pounds of ice every 24 hours depending
on usage conditions.
• If water dispenses slower than normal, or if the filter is six
(6) 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.

not stop making ice.
• Ice maker wire signal arm is being held down by some package
in the freezer that has fallen
against the ice maker.
• Move the item and release wire signal arm. Remove any ice
cubes that may have frozen together over the wire signal
arm.
Ice cubes are freezing
together.
• Ice cubes are not being used
frequently enough.
• 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. Replace the water filter.
• 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.
ICE DISPENSER
Dispenser will not dispense ice.
Ice dispenser is
jammed.
• There is no ice in the bin to be
dispensed.
• The refrigerator doors are not completely closed.
• Dispenser paddle has been pressed
