This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
DANGER
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using your refrigerator, follow these basic precautions:


Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
 Disconnect power before servicing.
 Replace all parts and panels before operating.

Proper Disposal
of
Your Refrigerator
WARNING
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Tip Over Hazard
Refrigerator is top heavy and tips easily when not
completely installed.
Keep doors taped closed until refrigerator is
completely installed.
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or serious injury.
Failure to do so can result in death or brain damage.
IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous,
even if they sit out 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
children may not easily climb
inside.

Installation Specifications
Cabinet Layout
Reverse osmosis water supply
• Locate the refrigerator so that it may easily be pulled out from
the wall if service becomes necessary.
• A grounded three prong non-GFCI electrical outlet must
be provided and should be in a location that allows the
refrigerator to be connected without an extension cord. See
Electrical Requirements for additional information.
• The plumbing for the water line can come through the floor
flush to or from the back wall. Install the water valve in a
location that allows it to be turned off without moving the
refrigerator out in the event the refrigerator or water line
requires service.
• For IF36 series models, see document 100504 for
instructions on planning and installing integrated front panels.
It is available at www.Dacor.com.
36” Min. (914 mm)
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of
a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 35 and 120 p.s.i. (241 and
827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 p.s.i. (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 p.s.i. (276 to 414 kPa):
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce
the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See the use and
care manual.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
*Add 2 1/2” (64 mm) for the optional top gril kit (AFG36).
Water Supply Requirements
• All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz. AC only 15 or 20 Amp. fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension
cord.
• A cold water supply with water pressure of between 35 and
120 p.s.i. (241 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water
dispenser and ice maker. If you have questions about your
water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
• Install a shut off valve between the refrigerator and water
supply. Use 1/4” copper tubing with a compression nut and
compression sleeve and check for leaks. Allow a minimum of
24” (610 mm) diameter service loop of copper tubing outside
the wall or floor for easy connection to the water supply.
Install copper tubing only in areas where the household
temperatures will remain above freezing.
• Do not use a piecing type or 3/16” (5 mm) saddle valve which
will reduce water flow and clog more easily.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.

Installation Instructions
Complete Installation
1. Turn the water supply line valve to the open position.
2. Wait a few minutes. Check the water line connections for
leaks.
3. Remove all boxes, parts packages and packing materials
from the interior of the refrigerator.
4. Remove the film and cardboard from the grille and doors or
door frame, depending on your model.
5. Install the shelves and bins in the refrigerator and freezer
compartments.
6. The controls are preset at the factory to the midpoint setting.
Check that the compressor is operating properly and that all
the lights are working.
7. Flush the water system before use. See Water System
Preparation.
To get the most efficient use from your new refrigerator, read your
use and care manual. Keep these installation instructions and the
use and care manual near the refrigerator for easy reference.
Water System Preparation
Please read before using the water system.
Immediately after installation, follow the steps below to make sure
that the water system is properly cleaned.
NOTICE: Flush four (4) gallons of water through the water filter
cartridge before use. Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool
down and chill water.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after
the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on
disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
1. Install the water filter. The water filter is located in the upper
right hand corner of the fresh food compartment. Remove
the blue bypass cap and retain it for later use. Remove the
sealing label from the end of the filter and insert it into the
filter head. Rotate it gently clockwise until it stops. Snap the
filter cover closed.
2. Hold a sturdy container under the water spout and press the
dispenser button. Flush the water system by dispensing and
discarding 4 gallons (15 L) of water. Cleaning the system will
take approximately 5 minutes and will help clear air from the
line. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the
dispenser.
8
3. Make sure the ice bin is in
place and the ice maker
arm is down.
4. After the freezer section
reaches between 0° to 2°F
(-18° to -17° C), the ice
maker fills with water and
begins operating. You will
have a complete harvest
of ice approximately every
three hours.
5. Allow approximately 24
hours after installation to
receive the first harvest of ice.
6. Discard ice created within the first 12 hours of operation to
assure the system is flushed of impurities.
