IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

WARNING!

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:

■ This refrigerator must be properly installed and located in accordance with the Installation

Instructions before it is used. Also see the

How to Connect Electricity section.

■ Do not attempt to stand on top of the refrigerator.

Doing so may result in bodily injury or damage to the refrigerator.

Do not allow children to play with the refrigerator or tamper with the controls.

■ 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 stick 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 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.

■ Installation of the icemaker must be done by a qualified service technician.

■ 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 the 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: Setting either or both controls to 0 (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.

DANGER! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT

PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE REFRIGERATOR

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 and discard separately.

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

If the refrigerator has a lock, make it unusable.

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.

WARNING!

HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with an earthing plug which mates with a standard earthed 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 earthed.

Where an unearthed wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly earthed wall outlet.

The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet.

This provides the

Insure proper earthing exists before using.

best performance and also prevents

Earthing plug overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. Please refer to the rating plate on the refrigerator for the correct voltage, wattage and frequency. If the product plug does not fit your outlet, the product should be fitted with a new plug.

IMPORTANT: The refitting of electric plugs and cables should be done by a qualified technician or service agent. In some countries the refitting of electric plugs and cables is only permitted when the work is completed by a qualified technician.

If the power supply cord becomes damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified service agent in order to avoid a safety hazard.

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.

Mains lead replacement

If the mains lead on your refrigerator needs replacing at any time, it must be replaced by a special lead which is obtainable from your local dealer. A charge will be made for the replacement of the mains lead if you have damaged the lead.

The refrigerator must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.

READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

About the temperature controls on CustomCool

models.

(for other models, see next page)

4

The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 3°C for the refrigerator compartment and -18°C 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 refrigerator and freezer. The actual temperature may vary slightly from the SET temperature based on usage and operating environment.

Setting either or both controls to 0 (off) stops cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator 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 + or – pad. The SET light will come on and the display will show the set temperature. To change the temperature, tap either the + or – pad until the desired temperature is displayed. Refrigerator temperatures can be adjusted between 1°C and 7°C and the freezer temperatures can be adjusted between –21°C and –14°C.

Once the desired temperature has been set, the temperature display will return to the actual refrigerator 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.

To turn the cooling system off, tap the + pad for either the refrigerator or the freezer until the display shows

0 (off). To turn the unit back on, press the – pad for either the refrigerator or freezer. The SET light will illuminate on the side you selected. Then press the – pad again

(on the side where the SET light is illuminated) and it will go to the preset points of –18°C for the freezer and

3°C for the refrigerator. Setting either or both controls to 0 (off) stops cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments, but does not shut off electrical power to the refrigerator.

About TurboCool

.

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 eight hours. The compressor will continue to run until the refrigerator compartment cools to approximately

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

Press TurboCool . The TurboCool indicator light will come on.

After TurboCool is complete, the TurboCool indicator light will go out.

NOTES:

The refrigerator temperature cannot be changed during

TurboCool .

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.

About ClimateKeeper2.

(on some models)

6

How it Works

The new ClimateKeeper2 ™ is the industry’s most advanced refrigeration system, delivering optimum temperature and humidity performance to keep food garden fresh longer and reduce freezer burn, while maintaining High level efficiency.

The new ClimateKeeper2 system features two evaporators—one for the refrigerator and one for the freezer.

This provides two separate cooling systems for the entire unit, and separates the airflow between the fresh food and freezer sections during normal cooling operations.*

This ensures that the humidity levels in the fresh food section are significantly higher than in a conventional system,** allowing fresh produce and other unsealed foods to retain their moisture content and freshness longer. Moisture sensitive foods such as fresh fruit, salads, rice, etc., can now be stored on open shelves without excessive moisture loss. Due to the higher humidity in the refrigerator, you may on occasion experience fog or small amounts of moisture in the refrigerator compartment. This is normal and may come and go as different food loads and environmental conditions change. Wipe dry with a paper towel if desired.

The separate airflow system minimizes the mixing of air between the two compartments, which reduces odor transfer to improve the taste of ice.

The ClimateKeeper2 system also reduces the number of defrosting cycles in the freezer evaporator, thereby reducing freezer burn.

*Freezer air is used in the CustomCool feature.

**Testing shows a higher level of humidity in the Fresh Food section in ClimateKeeper2 refrigerators versus conventional units.

About CustomCool.

(on some models)

ExpressThaw ™

How it Works

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.

The controls for this pan are located at the top of the refrigerator with the temperature controls.

Some CustomCool models feature a beverage center. It is designed to store beverages at colder temperatures. Select the Beverage

Center pad if you like to keep extra-chilled refreshments on hand.

How to Use

Empty the pan. Place the Chill/Thaw tray in the pan with the CustomCool plate facing down to chill and store items, or with the CustomCool plate facing up to thaw items. Place the items on the tray and close the pan completely.

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.

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.

After the ExpressThaw cycle is complete, the pan will reset to the

MEAT setting (–1°C) 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.

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.

About the freezer compartment.

Loading the Freezer Compartment

Load so that at least 15 mm of space remains clear between stacks of packages and 15 mm to 25 mm of space between the top of any stack and any shelf or basket above it.

Packages may hang over the front of shelves but must remain 15 mm from doors.

Food to be frozen must not be placed in direct contact with food in storage.

If food is to be frozen every day, it may be necessary to reduce the quantity to be frozen.

If a quantity of food needs to be frozen, set the freezer control to its coldest setting.

After the food is frozen, reset the freezer control to its initial position.

Food is most quickly frozen on the middle three shelves of the freezer compartment and most slowly in the freezer door shelves.

Do not store commercially quick-frozen food longer than the time recommended by the food manufacturers.

If the power to the appliance is shut off for an extended time or if the refrigerating system fails, do not open the doors unless absolutely necessary. When it is necessary, close them as quickly as possible so the frozen food will stay frozen as long as possible.

The freezer door storage shelves marked with a two-star label are only appropriate for the storage of previously frozen food.

Effervescent drinks should not be stored in the freezer compartment.

When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, set the power switch to the l position.

You will hear a buzzing sound each time the icemaker fills with water.

The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to –10°C. A newly-installed refrigerator may take

12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.

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.

If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.

If ice cubes get stuck in the icemaker, the green power light will blink. To correct this, set the power switch to O and remove the cubes. Set the power switch to I to restart the icemaker.

After the icemaker has been turned on again, there will be a delay of about 45 minutes before the icemaker resumes operation.

NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average water pressure, you may hear the icemaker cycle multiple times when making one batch of ice.

WARNING:

Connect to potable water supply only. Installation of the icemaker must be done by a qualified service technician.

Special note about ClimateKeeper2 ™ models: dispenser

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.

To restore your ice level from an empty bucket stage, the following steps are recommended:

12 hours after the first batch of ice has fallen into the bin, dispense 3 to 4 cubes.

After an additional 6 hours, dispense 3 to

4 cubes again.

These steps will restore your ice level in the shortest amount of time.

On dispenser models, with a tilt-out ice bin, to access ice or reach the power switch:

Lift the bin, then pull it forward until the bin stops.

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.

Ice Storage Drawer

To access ice, pull the drawer forward.

To remove the drawer, pull it straight out and lift it past the stop location.

About the ice and water dispenser.

(on some models)

Spill Shelf

To Use the Dispenser

Select CUBED ICE , CRUSHED ICE or WATER .

Press the glass gently against the top of the dispenser pad/cradle.

The spill shelf is not self-draining. To reduce water spotting, the shelf and its grille should be cleaned regularly.

If no water is dispensed when the refrigerator is first installed, there may be air in the water line system. Press the dispenser pad/cradle for at least two minutes to remove trapped air from the water line and to fill the water system. To flush out impurities in the water line, throw away the first six glassfuls of water.

CAUTION: Never put fingers or any other objects into the ice crusher discharge opening.

Locking the Dispenser

(on some models)

Press the LOCK CONTROL pad for 3 seconds to lock the dispenser and control panel. To unlock, press and hold the pad again for 3 seconds.

Dispenser Light

(on some models)

This pad turns the night light in the dispenser on and off. The light also comes on when the dispenser pad/cradle is pressed. If this light burns out, it should be replaced with a 6 watt

12V maximum bulb.

Quick Ice

(on some models)

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

(on some models)

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.

Important Facts About Your Dispenser

Do not add ice from trays or bags to the storage drawer. It may not crush or dispense well.

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.

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.

To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser opening.

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.

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.

CAUTION: Some products such as water ices should not be consumed too cold.

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Dispenser drip area.

Cleaning the Outside

The dispenser drip area, beneath the grille, should be wiped dry. Water left in this area may leave deposits. Remove the deposits by adding undiluted vinegar to the well. Soak until the deposits disappear or become loose enough to rinse away.

The dispenser cradle (on dispenser models) .

Before cleaning, open the freezer door part way to prevent dispensing of ice or water when cleaning. Clean the cradle with a warm water and baking soda solution—about 15 ml of baking soda to 1 liter of water. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.

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 kitchen appliance wax or mild liquid dish detergent. Dry and polish 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.

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Cleaning the 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 15 ml of baking soda to one liter of water.

This both cleans and neutralizes odors. Rinse and wipe dry.

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.

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.

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.

When pushing the refrigerator back, make sure you don’t roll over the power cord or icemaker supply line.

Preparing for Vacation

For long vacations or absences, remove food and unplug the refrigerator. Clean the interior with a baking soda solution of 15 ml of baking soda to

1 liter of water. Leave the doors open.

Set the icemaker power switch to the O position and shut off the water supply to the refrigerator.

If the temperature can drop below freezing, have a qualified servicer drain the water supply system to prevent serious property damage due to flooding.

Preparing to Move

Secure all loose items such as shelves and drawers by taping them securely in place to prevent damage.

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.

Be sure the refrigerator stays in an upright position during moving.

Installation Instructions

INSTALLING THE WATER LINE

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

The water line installation is not warranted by the refrigerator or icemaker manufacturer. Follow these recommendations carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage.

Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.

To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook up the water line to the hot water line.

If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line, make sure the icemaker power switch is in the O (off) position.

Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.

When using any electrical device (such as a power drill) during installation, be sure the device is insulated or wired in a manner to prevent the hazard of electric shock.

All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.

Installation of the icemaker must be done by a qualified service technician.

WARNING!

Connect to potable water supply only.

1 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE

REFRIGERATOR

NOTES:

• Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the wall outlet.

• We recommend installing a water filter if your water supply has sand or particles that could clog the screen of the refrigerator’s water valve. Install it in the water line near the refrigerator.

1 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE

REFRIGERATOR (CONT.)

Some models have the refrigerator connection at the end of tubing located outside the compressor compartment access cover. On other models, the compressor compartment access cover must be removed in order to access the refrigerator connection at the water valve.

On models using the refrigeration connection at the water valve, remove the plastic flexible cap.

Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing as shown.

Insert the end of the tubing into the water valve connection as far as possible. While holding the tubing, tighten the fitting.

Fasten the tubing into the clamp provided to hold it in a vertical position. You may need to pry open the clamp.

One of the illustrations below will look like the connection on your icemaker.

NOTE: In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to deliver enough water to the icemaker.

29

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 fan 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.

■ On models with an icemaker, 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 About the automatic icemaker and About the ice and water dispenser sections.

Special Safety Instructions for Australia and New Zealand.

(in addition to other information in Owner’s Manual)

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to property, follow basic safety precautions when using this refrigerator, including the following:

When using any Electrical Product, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:

READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE

USING THE REFRIGERATOR. KEEP THE INSTRUCTIONS

HANDY FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

■ IMPORTANT: Always operate the refrigerator from a power source of the same Voltage,

Frequency and Rating as indicated on the refrigerator identification plate. Operate the refrigerator from an Earthed (Grounded) 3 pin power outlet fully accessible when the refrigerator is located in its normal operating position.

Close supervision is necessary when any electrical product is used by or operated near children or infirm persons; young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the refrigerator.

■ IMPORTANT: Do not operate the refrigerator with a damaged Supply cord or Plug. If it is damaged it must be replaced by the manufacturer, distributor or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard. Special tools are required to replace the Supply flexible cord.

WARNING:

Avoid the use of extension cords. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, prior to its use, make sure the extension cord is safe to use, capable of handling the electrical load of the product (refer to Product identification plate) and has been checked and tested by your electricity supplier or a qualified technician.

To avoid becoming entangled in the cord, never lay it through or along a walkway or thoroughfare.

■ Do not allow the cord to hang over the edge of a bench top where it may be grabbed by children or become entangled with the user.

34

Installing the Water Line

For Australian and New Zealand installation, read these instructions completely and carefully.

Before You Begin

■ IMPORTANT: Government legislation and Codes in most States and Territories of Australia require installation by a licensed plumber.

The installation must conform to Australian

Standard AS 3500.1 Water supply.

■ Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to the refrigerator parts and lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.

■ To prevent burns and refrigerator damage, do not hook up the water line to the hot water line.

■ If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line, make sure the icemaker power switch is set to the O position.

Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where the temperatures fall below freezing.

Shut Off the Main Water Supply

For models fitted with an icemaker, a water supply kit (containing flexible tubing and fittings) is supplied with the refrigerator.

The water pressure must be between 138 and

827 kPa on models without a water filter fitted and between 275 and 827 kPa on models with a water filter fitted.

Turn Off the water and open a low tap to drain the water from the pipe.

Complying with the plumbing codes, install a suitable branch fitting (not supplied) to the cold water supply.

Extend the branch to a suitable location adjacent to the refrigerator when it is located in its operating position. Terminate the branch with a shutoff valve

(not supplied).

IMPORTANT: The shut-off valve should be accessible

(such as in an adjacent cupboard, as close to the wall as possible) when the refrigerator is in its normal operating position.

If your water supply pressure is higher than 690 kPa during the day (if so, it may reach higher levels at night), install a suitable Pressure limiting valve

(not supplied), after the shut-off valve, making sure the “flow arrows” on the body of the device face the same direction as the water flow.

If necessary, assemble a suitable fitting (not supplied) to the up-stream end of the shutoff valve

(or pressure limiting valve) for attachment of the fitting supplied with the water supply kit.

NOTE: PTFE tape should be used for a water tight seal when assembling all the above fittings.

Do not turn the water supply On at this time.

35

Special Installation Instructions for Australia and New Zealand.

Installing the Water Line (cont.)

Connecting the Tubing to the Shutoff Valve

Attach the fitting with the male thread supplied with the water supply kit to the shutoff valve (or pressure limiting valve, if fitted), and tighten.

NOTE: PTFE tape should be used for a water tight seal when assembling all the above fittings.

Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the side of the cupboard as close to the wall as possible.

Make sure there is sufficient length of tubing

[approximately 240 cm coiled into 3 turns of approximately 25 cm] to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation.

Insert and push the end of the tubing into the fitting as far as possible.

With the free end of the tubing located in a suitable container, turn the main water supply

On and flush out the tubing until the water is clear.

Turn Off the shutoff valve after approximately 1 litre of water has been flushed through the tubing.

Connecting the Tubing to the Refrigerator

Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure the power is turned OFF and the power cord is disconnected from the Power Outlet.

If your refrigerator does not include a water filter, we recommend installing one in the water line near the refrigerator if your water supply has sand or particles that could clog the screen of the refrigerator’s water valve.

Remove the refrigerator access cover.

Remove the plastic flexible cap from the water valve

(refrigerator connection).

Attach the fitting with the female thread supplied with the water supply kit to the water valve and tighten.

Insert and push the end of the tubing into the fitting as far as possible.

Fasten the tubing into the clamp provided to hold it in position. You may need to pry open the clamp.

36

Turn the Water On

Turn the water On at the shutoff valve.

Tighten any connection that leaks.

Replace the access cover and tighten all screws

(on some models).

Plug In the Refrigerator

Plug in the refrigerator to the Power Outlet and turn On .

IMPORTANT: Always operate the Refrigerator from a power source of the same Voltage, Frequency and

Rating as indicated on the Refrigerator

Identification Plate. Operate the Refrigerator from an Earthed (Grounded) 3 Pin Power Outlet fully accessible when the refrigerator is located in its normal operating position.

Arrange the coil of tubing so that it does not vibrate against the back of the refrigerator or against the wall.

Push the refrigerator back to the wall, making sure the power cord and the water line tubing are not trapped, entangled or squashed by the refrigerator

(including the wheels) or wall.

Start the Icemaker

Set the icemaker power switch to the I position.

The icemaker will not begin to operate until it reaches its operating temperature of –9°C or below.

It will then begin operation automatically if the icemaker power switch is in the I position.

NOTE: In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to make sure enough water reaches the icemaker.
