IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
wWARNING: 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.
• 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,
the refrigerator should be unplugged in order
to avoid contact with a live wire filament.
(A burned-out light bulb may break when
being replaced.)
NOTE: Turning control to OFF does not remove power
to the light circuit.
• Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely.
• Always clean the CustomCool™ Tray after
thawing food.
• 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.
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.
REFRIGERANTS
All refrigeration products contain refrigerants,
which under federal law must be removed prior
to product disposal.
4
If you are getting rid of an old refrigeration
product, check with the company handling
the disposal about what to do.
MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES
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

après avoir dégelé les aliments.
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 refrigerants 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.
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.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which has
a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the
use of an extension cord.
However, if you must use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed, 3-wire
grounding type appliance extension cord having
a grounding type plug and outlet and that the
electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes
(minimum) and 120 volts.

MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTES
RACCORDEMENT ÉLECTRIQUE
Ne coupez ni retirez en aucun cas la troisième
broche (mise à la terre) de la fiche du cordon
d’alimentation. Pour votre sécurité, cet appareil
doit être correctement mis à la terre.
Le cordon d’alimentation de cet appareil est
muni d’une fiche à 3 broches (mise à la terre)
qui se branche dans une prise mural ordinaire
à 3 alvéoles (mise à la terre) pour réduire au
minimum les risques du chocs électriques.
Faites examiner la prise de courant et le circuit
par un électricien qualifié pour vous assurer
que la prise est correctement mise à la terre.
Si la prise murale est du type standard à

Operating Instructions
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Temperature
controls
The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37°F for the
fresh food compartment and 0°F for the freezer compartment. Allow
24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended
settings.
The temperature controls can display both the SET temperature
as well as the actual temperature in the fresh food and freezer
compartments. The actual temperature may vary slightly from the
SET temperature based on usage and operating environment.
Setting either or both controls to OFF stops cooling in both the freezer
and fresh food compartments, but does not shut off electrical power
to the refrigerator.
NOTE: The refrigerator is shipped with protective film covering the
temperature controls. If this film was not removed during installation,
remove it now.
To change the temperature, press and release
the
(warmer) or
(colder) pad. The SET
light will come on and the display will show the
set temperature. To change the temperature,
tap either the
(warmer) or
(colder)
pad until the desired temperature is displayed.
Fresh food temperatures can be adjusted
between 34°F and 44°F and the freezer
temperatures can be adjusted between
-6°F and +6°F.
Once the desired temperature has been set,
the temperature display will return to the
actual fresh food and freezer temperatures
after 5 seconds. Several adjustments may be
required. Each time you adjust controls,
allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach
the temperature you have set.
Performance
Air Flow
System
8
The Performance Air-Flow System is designed
to maximize temperature control in the fresh
food and freezer compartments. This unique
special feature consists of the Air Tower along
the top and back walls of the fresh food
compartment and the Air Tunnel on the
bottom portion of the freezer rear wall.
Placing food in front of the louvers on these
components will not affect performance.
To turn the cooling system off, tap the
(warmer) pad for either the fresh food
compartment or the freezer until the display
shows OFF. To turn the unit back on, press the
(colder) pad for either the fresh food
compartment or freezer. The SET light will
illuminate on the side you selected. Then press
the
(colder) pad again (on the side where
the SET light is illuminated) and it will go to
the preset points of 0°F for the freezer and
37°F for the fresh food compartment.
Although the Air Tower and the Air Tunnel
can be removed, doing so will affect
temperature performance. (For removal
instructions, on-line, 24 hours a day, contact
us at ge.com or call 800.444.1845. In Canada,
call us at 1.888.880.3030.)
TurboCool™
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
How it works
TurboCool rapidly cools the
refrigerator compartment in
order to more quickly cool foods.
Use TurboCool when adding
a large amount of food to the refrigerator
compartment, putting away foods after they
have been sitting out at room temperature
or when putting away warm leftovers. It can
also be used if the refrigerator has been
without power for an extended period.
Once activated, the compressor will turn on
immediately and the fans will cycle on and
off at high speed as needed for 8 hours.
The compressor will continue to run until
the refrigerator compartment cools to
approximately 34°F (1°C), then it will cycle
on and off to maintain this setting. After
8 hours, or if TurboCool is pressed again,
the refrigerator compartment will return to
the original setting.
How to use
1 Press TurboCool. The refrigerator
temperature display will show TC.
NOTES:
• The refrigerator temperature cannot be changed
during TurboCool.
2 After TurboCool is complete,
the refrigerator compartment
will return to the original setting.
• The freezer temperature is not affected during
TurboCool.
• When opening the refrigerator door during
TurboCool, the fans will continue to run if
they have cycled on.
9
CustomCool™
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
How it works
How to use
The CustomCool feature is a system of
dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor
and a heater. Depending on the function
selected, a combination of these will be
used to quickly chill items, thaw items or
hold the pan at a specific temperature.
The pan is tightly sealed to prevent the pan’s
temperature from causing temperature
fluctuations in the rest of the refrigerator.
1 Empty the pan. Place the Chill/Thaw tray
in the pan. Place the items on the tray and
close the pan completely.
NOTE: For food safety reasons, it is recommended
that foods be wrapped in plastic wrap when using
ExpressThaw. This will help contain meat juices
and improve thawing performance.
2 Select the ExpressThaw™
, ExpressChill™
or SelectTemp™ pad. The display and SET
light will come on. Tap the pad until the light
appears next to the desired setting. Use the
chart to determine the best setting to use.
The controls for this pan are located at the
top of the fresh food compartment with the
temperature controls.
• To stop a feature before it is finished, tap that
feature’s pad until no options are selected
and the display is off.
• During ExpressThaw and ExpressChill,
the display on the controls will count down
the time in the cycle.
ExpressThaw ™
• After the ExpressThaw cycle is complete,
the pan will reset to the MEAT setting (31°F)
to help preserve thawed items until they
are used.
• The displayed actual temperature of the
CustomCool pan may vary slightly from
the SET temperature based on usage and
operating environment.

duct to allow a stream of cold air from the
freezer compartment to flow to the pan.
The bottom drawer has a cover that slides back
as the drawer is opened. This allows full access
to the drawer. As the drawer is closed, the cover
will slide forward into its original position.
Crispers can easily be removed by pulling the
drawer straight out and lifting the drawer up
and over the stop location.
If the door prevents you from taking out the
drawers, first try to remove the door bins.
If this does not offer enough clearance, the
refrigerator will need to be rolled forward
until the door opens enough to slide the
drawers out. In some cases, when you roll the
refrigerator out, you will need to move the
refrigerator to the left or right as you roll it out.

Automatic Icemaker
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Automatic
icemaker
NOTE: A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.
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.
Power Switch
Icemaker
If the refrigerator is operated before the water
connection is made to the icemaker, set the
power switch in the O (off) position.
When the refrigerator has been connected to
the water supply, set the power switch to the
l (on) position.
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to
15°F (–10°C). A newly installed refrigerator may
take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.
Green
Power Light
Feeler Arm
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.
To access ice or reach
the power switch:
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will
become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.
Special notes:
• Dispenser models have a tilt-out ice bin.
The bin can be tilted out as shown in the
illustrations, and it will hold itself up while
you take ice out or turn the icemaker power
switch on and off. Be sure to put the bin
back in place before closing the door.
1 Lift the bin, then pull it forward
until the bin stops.
• To restore your ice level from an empty
bucket stage, the following steps are
recommended:
1 12 hours after the first batch of ice has
fallen into the bin, dispense 3 to 4 cubes.
2 After an additional 6 hours, dispense
3 to 4 cubes again.
These steps will restore your ice level in the
shortest amount of time.
NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average water
pressure, you may hear the icemaker cycle multiple
times when making one batch of ice.
2 Lower the bin to access ice or
reach the power switch.
NOTE: In order to take full
advantage of the tilt-out ice bin,
only store items on the shelf below
the ice bin that are no taller than
the lowest point on the bin.

Important
facts about
the dispenser
Quick Ice
When you need ice in a hurry,
press this pad to speed up ice
production. This will increase
ice production for the following
48 hours or until you press the
pad again.
Door Alarm
To set the alarm, press this pad
until the indicator light comes on.
This alarm will sound if either
door is open for more than
3 minutes. The light goes out
and the beeping stops when you
close the door.
• Do not add ice from trays or bags to
the storage drawer. It may not crush or
dispense well.
• To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass,
put the glass close to, but not touching, the
dispenser opening.
• Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of
narrow 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.
• Some crushed ice may be dispensed even
though you selected CUBED ICE. This
happens occasionally when a few cubes
accidentally get directed to the crusher.
• Beverages and foods should not be
quick-chilled in the ice storage drawer.
Cans, bottles or food packages in the
storage drawer may cause the icemaker
or auger to jam.
• After crushed ice is dispensed, some water
may drip from the chute.
• Sometimes a small 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.

The dispenser cradle. Before cleaning,
lock the dispenser by pressing and holding
the CONTROL LOCK pad for 3 seconds.
Clean with warm water and baking soda
solution—about a tablespoon (15 ml) of
baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water.
Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
Cleaning
the inside
To help prevent odors, leave an open box of
baking soda in the fresh food 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. Rinse and wipe dry.
The stainless steel panels and handles 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.
Use of any cleaning solution other than that
which is recommended, especially those that
contain petroleum distillates, can crack or
damage the interior of the refrigerator.
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.
The Chill/Thaw tray is dishwasher safe.

Care and Cleaning
Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Behind the
refrigerator
Be careful when moving the refrigerator away
from the wall. All types of floor coverings can be
damaged, particularly cushioned coverings and
those with embossed surfaces.
When pushing the refrigerator back, make sure
you don’t roll over the power cord or icemaker
supply line.
Pull the refrigerator straight out and return it
to position by pushing it straight in. Moving the
refrigerator in a side direction may result in
damage to the floor covering or refrigerator.
Preparing
for vacation
For long vacations or absences, remove food
and unplug the refrigerator. Clean the interior
with a baking soda solution of one tablespoon
(15 ml) of baking soda to one quart (1 liter)
of water. Leave the doors open.
If the temperature can drop below freezing,
have a qualified servicer drain the water supply
system to prevent serious property damage due
to flooding.
Set the icemaker power switch to the O (off)
position and shut off the water supply to
the refrigerator.
Preparing
to move
Secure all loose items such as shelves and
drawers by taping them securely in place
to prevent damage.
Be sure the refrigerator stays in an upright
position during moving.
When using a hand truck to move the
refrigerator, do not rest the front or back
of the refrigerator against the hand truck.
This could damage the refrigerator. Handle
only from the sides of the refrigerator.

Stainless Steel Refrigerator
Normal
operating
sounds
Newer refrigerators sound different from older refrigerators. Modern refrigerators 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 refrigerator
and you may hear a high-pitched hum or
pulsating sound while it is operating.
• Sometimes the refrigerator runs for an
extended period, especially when the doors
are opened frequently. This means that the
Frost Guard ™ feature is working to prevent
freezer burn and improve food preservation.
• You may hear a whooshing sound when the
doors close. This is due to pressure equalizing
within the refrigerator.
• 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.
• If either 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.
• You may hear the fans running after selecting
one of the CustomCool™ settings.
CLICKS, POPS,
CRACKS and CHIRPS
• You may hear cracking or popping sounds
when the refrigerator is first plugged in.
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.
• Expansion and contraction of cooling coils
during and after defrost can cause a cracking
or popping sound.
• After an icemaking cycle, you may hear the
ice cubes dropping into the ice bucket.
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
and Ice and Water Dispenser sections.

For one year from date of original purchase, we will provide, free of charge, parts and service labor in your
home to repair or replace any part of the refrigerator that fails because of a manufacturing defect.
LIMITED FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY

will also provide, free of charge, a replacement water filter cartridge.
This warranty is extended to the original purchaser and any succeeding owner for products purchased for
ordinary home use in the 48 mainland states, Hawaii, Washington, D.C. or Canada. If the product is located
in an area where service by a GE Authorized Servicer is not available, you may be responsible for a trip
