IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

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:

n Take off the doors.

n 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. If you are getting rid of an old refrigeration product, check with the company handling the disposal about what to do.

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 (in the United States) or a

CSA certified (in Canada), 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.

DANGER! RISQUES POUR LES ENFANTS

COMMENT VOUS DÉBARRASSER

CONVENABLEMENT DE VOTRE ANCIEN RÉFRIGÉRATEUR

Les enfants pris au piège ou morts d’asphyxie sont toujours d’actualité. Les réfrigérateurs abandonnés sont toujours aussi dangereux, même si on n’attend que «quelques jours» pour s’en débarrasser. Si vous ne gardez pas votre ancien réfrigérateur, veuillez suivre les directives cidessous afin de prévenir les accidents.

Avant de vous débarrasser de votre ancien réfrigérateur ou congélateur :

n Démontez les portes.

n 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.

CORDONS PROLONGATEURS

Nous vous recommandons fortement de ne pas utiliser de cordons prolongateurs à cause des risques potentiels qu’ils présentent dans certaines conditions.

Toutefois si vous décidez d’utiliser tout de même un cordon prolongateur, il est absolument nécessaire qu’il s’agisse d’un cordon à 3 fils avec mise à la terre pour appareils électro ménagers homologué UL (aux États-Unis) ou certifié CSA (au Canada), pourvu d’une fiche et d’une prise mises à la terre de 15 ampères (minimum) et de 120 volts.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

WARNING!

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 3prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3prong (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.

The refrigerator 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.

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.

READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

About the automatic icemaker.

A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.

There are 2 types of icemakers:

Power Switch

Green Power Light

Power switch model

Icemaker

Feeler Arm

Feeler Arm in the ON (down) position

Feeler Arm in the STOP

(up) position

Feeler arm model

Automatic Icemaker

(on some models)

The icemaker will produce approximately

100–130 cubes in a 24-hour period, depending on the 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, move the feeler arm to the STOP (up) position.

When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, move the feeler arm to the ON

(down) position.

The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to

15°F. A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to

24 hours to begin making ice cubes.

Once the icemaker starts to make ice, it may take up to 48 hours to fill the bin, depending on the temperature settings and number of door openings.

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.

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

On power switch models, the green power light will blink if ice cubes get stuck in the icemaker.

To correct this, set the power switch to O (off) and remove the cubes. Set the power switch to I

(on) 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.

Icemaker Accessory Kit

If your refrigerator did not already come equipped with an automatic icemaker, an icemaker accessory kit is available at extra cost.

Check the back of the refrigerator for the specific icemaker kit needed for your model.

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Cleaning the Outside

The door handles and trim (on some models). 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.

The stainless steel panels and door handles (on some models) can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner. Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel.

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.

Moving 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.

Turn the leveling legs at each front corner of the refrigerator counterclockwise until the rollers support the refrigerator. 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 (on some models).

After rolling the refrigerator back into place, turn the legs clockwise until the legs again bear the weight of the refrigerator.

Light Bulb Replacement

To replace a burned-out bulb, unplug the refrigerator from its electrical outlet, unscrew the bulb when cool and replace it with an appliance bulb of the same or lower wattage.

Turning the control to the 0 position does not remove power to the light circuit.

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.

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 (on some models) 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.

Preparing for Vacation

For long vacations or absences, remove food and unplug the refrigerator. Move the temperature control dial to the 0 position, and 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.

Move the feeler arm to the STOP (up) 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 (on some models) to prevent serious property damage due to flooding.

Preparing to Move

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

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

Condenser

There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal home operating environments.

However, in environments that may be particularly dusty or

Cleaning the condenser coils.

greasy, the condenser should be cleaned periodically for efficient refrigerator operation.

To clean the condenser, turn the temperature control dial to

0 . Sweep away or vacuum up dust.

For best results, use a brush specially designed for this purpose. It is available at most appliance parts stores.

(oN some moDels)

BeFore you BeGIN

Recommended copper water supply kits are WX8X2,

WX8X3 or WX8X4, depending on the amount of tubing you need. Approved plastic water supply lines are GE

SmartConnect ™ Refrigerator Tubing (WX08X10006,

WX08X10015 and WX08X10025).

When connecting your refrigerator to a GE Reverse

Osmosis Water System, the only approved installation is with a GE RVKit. For other reverse osmosis water systems, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.

This water line installation is not warranted by the refrigerator or icemaker manufacturer. Follow these instructions 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 feeler arm is in the STOP (up) 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 double insulated or grounded in a manner to prevent the hazard of electric shock, or is battery powered.

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

• If you are using a GE SmartConnect ™ Refrigerator

Tubing kit, the necessary fittings are preassembled to the tubing.

• If your existing copper water line has a flared fitting at the end, you will need an adapter (available at plumbing supply stores) to connect the water line to the refrigerator

OR you can cut off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then use a compression fitting. Do not cut formed end from GE SmartConnect ™

Refrigerator tubing.

what you wIll NeeD

• Copper or GE SmartConnect ™ Refrigerator Tubing kit,

1/4 ” outer diameter to connect the refrigerator to the water supply. If using copper, be sure both ends of the tubing are cut square.

To determine how much tubing you need: measure the distance from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then add 8 ’

(2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing

(about 8 ’ [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10 ”

[25 cm] diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation.

• Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line.

The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with a minimum inside diameter of 5/32 ” at the point of connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type shutoff valves are included in many water supply kits.

Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your local plumbing codes.

4

route the tuBING

Route the tubing between the cold water line and the refrigerator.

Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the wall or floor (behind the refrigerator or adjacent base cabinet) as close to the wall as possible.

NOTE: Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 feet [244 cm] coiled into 3 turns of about 10 ” [25 cm] diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation .

2

DrIll the hole For the ValVe

Choose a location for the valve that is easily accessible. It is best to connect into the side of a vertical water pipe.

When it is necessary to connect into a horizontal water pipe, make the connection to the top or side, rather than at the bottom, to avoid drawing off any sediment from the water pipe.

Drill a 1/4 ” hole in the water pipe (even if using a selfpiercing valve), using a sharp bit. Remove any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in the pipe. Take care not to allow water to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a 1/4 ” hole may result in reduced ice production or smaller cubes.

5

coNNect the tuBING to the ValVe

Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for copper tubing onto the end of the tubing and connect it to the shutoff valve.

Make sure the tubing is fully inserted into the valve. Tighten the compression nut securely.

For plastic tubing from a GE SmartConnect ™

Refrigerator Tubing kit, insert the molded end of the tubing into the shutoff valve and tighten compression nut until it is hand tight, then tighten one additional turn with a wrench. Overtightening may cause leaks.

2 reVersING the Door swING

ImportaNt Notes

When reversing the door swing:

• Read the instructions all the way through before starting.

• Handle parts carefully to avoid scratching paint.

• Set screws down by their related parts to avoid using them in the wrong places.

• Provide a non-scratching work surface for the doors.

IMPORTANT: Once you begin, do not move the cabinet until door-swing reversal is completed.

These instructions are for changing the hinges from the right side to the left side—if you ever want to change the hinges back to the right side, follow these same instructions and reverse all references to left and right.

Normal operating sounds.

GEAppliances.com

n n

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.

The new high efficiency compressor may run

HUMMM...

faster and longer than your old refrigerator and

WHOOSH...

you may hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while it is operating.

You may hear a whooshing sound when the doors close. This is due to pressure equalizing within the refrigerator.

n 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.

CLICKS, POPS,

CRACKS and CHIRPS

n n n n

You may hear cracking or popping sounds when the refrigerator is first plugged in. This happens as the refrigerator cools to the correct temperature.

The compressor may cause a clicking or chirping sound when attempting to restart (this could take up to 5 minutes).

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

n n n n

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 operating sounds, see the

About the automatic icemaker section.
