– even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator, please follow these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack the Refrigerator
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
■
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap
over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with warm water
and dry.
■
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. For
more information, see “Refrigerator Safety.”
■
Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.
2
When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator
for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor.
Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it.
Do not wiggle or “walk” the refrigerator when trying to move
it, as floor damage could occur.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside
of your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions
in “Refrigerator Care.”
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when
removing them to avoid impact from dropping.
WARNING
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for a ¹⁄₂"
(1.25 cm) space at the top and behind the refrigerator. If your
refrigerator has an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for
the water line connections. When installing your refrigerator next
to a fixed wall, leave 2¹⁄₂" (6.3 cm) minimum on the hinge side
(some models require more) to allow for the door to swing open.
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near an oven, radiator, or other heat source. Do not install the
refrigerator in a location where the temperature will fall below
55°F (13°C).
¹⁄₂" (1.25 cm)
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection.
Recommended Grounding Method
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.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the refrigerator to OFF. Depending on
your model, turn the freezer control to the word OFF, or press the
Freezer down arrow touch pad until a dash (–) appears in both the
Freezer and Refrigerator displays as shown. Disconnect the
refrigerator from the electrical source. When you are finished,
reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and reset the
temperature controls to the desired setting. See “Using the
Controls.”
Water Supply Requirements
2¹⁄₂" (6.3 cm)
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed
here.
TOOLS NEEDED:
■
Flat-blade screwdriver
■
¹⁄₄" Nut driver
■
⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" Open-end or two
adjustable wrenches
■
¹⁄₄" Drill bit
■
Cordless drill
Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆" (4.76 mm) saddle valve
which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
■
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household temperatures will remain
above freezing.

Water Pressure
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 35 and
120 psi (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.
5. Using a cordless drill, drill a ¹⁄₄" hole in the cold water pipe
you have selected.
A
B
C
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
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 psi (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 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (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 “Water
Filtration System.”
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Connect the Water Supply
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT: If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line
is connected, turn the ice maker OFF.
Connect to Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
3. Find a ¹⁄₂" to 1¹⁄₄" (12.7 mm to 31.8 mm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
■
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
■
Horizontal pipe will work, but the following procedure
must be followed: Drill on the top side of the pipe, not the
bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This
also keeps normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. Determine the length of copper tubing you need. Measure
from the connection on the rear of the refrigerator to the
water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use ¹⁄₄"
(6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure
both ends of copper tubing are cut square.

6. Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe
clamp. Be sure the outlet end is solidly in the ¹⁄₄" drilled hole
in the water pipe and that the washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws
slowly and evenly so the washer makes a watertight seal. Do
not overtighten or you may crush the copper tubing.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten.
8. Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe.
Connect to Refrigerator
Depending on your model, the water line may come down from
the top or up from the bottom. Follow the connection instructions
for your model.
Style 1
1. Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet port. Attach the
copper tube to the valve inlet using a compression nut and
sleeve as shown. Tighten the compression nut. Do not
overtighten. Confirm copper tubing is secure by pulling on

■ The recommended setting should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream
is firm.
REFRIGERATOR USE
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has
cooled completely, your food may spoil.
Opening and Closing Doors
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
■
(French door models)
■
There are two refrigerator compartment doors. The doors can be
opened and closed either separately or together.
There is a vertically-hinged seal on the left refrigerator door.
■ When the left side door is opened, the hinged seal
automatically folds inward so that it is out of the way.
■
When both doors are closed, the hinged seal automatically
forms a seal between the two doors.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not
blocked before adjusting the controls.
To Turn Off/On:
Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a
dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays.
Neither compartment will cool.
Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word OFF. Neither
compartment will cool when the freezer is set to OFF.
A
Energy Saver Option (on some models)
The energy saver option turns off the heater which helps to
reduce moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses
more energy when Energy Saver is off.
■ Press the control to ON to save energy when the environment
is less humid.
■
A. Hinged seal

Press the control to OFF when the environment is warm and
more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.
Adjusting Controls
Remember
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment, use the settings listed in the chart below as
a guide.
For (Style 1) controls press the up or down arrow touch pads, or
for (Style 2) controls turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control
more than one setting at a time. Wait 24 hours between
adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.

Crisper Humidity Control
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Depending on your model, adjust the control to any
setting between FRUIT and VEGETABLES or LOW and HIGH.
FRUIT / LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables
with skins.
VEGETABLES / HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy
vegetables.
Ice Maker
(on some models)
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
■
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
■
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the
ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener
chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker
and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating
properly and is well maintained.
■
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.
Water Dispenser
(on some models)
IMPORTANT:
■ After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system. Press the button on the dispenser for
5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue
depressing and releasing the dispenser button (5 seconds on,
5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. This will flush air
from the filter and water dispensing system. Additional
flushing may be required in some households. As air is
cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the
dispenser.
NOTE: After 5 minutes of continuous dispensing, the
dispenser will stop dispensing water to avoid flooding. To
continue dispensing, press the dispenser button again.
■
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water. Dispense enough water every week to maintain a fresh
supply.
Dispensing Water
1. Hold a container under the dispenser while pressing the
button.
2. Release the button to stop dispensing.
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
Ice Production Rate
■
The ice maker should produce a complete batch of ice
approximately every 3 hours.
■
To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See “Using the Controls.” Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
13
Water Filtration System
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.
The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment. You should change the water filter at
least every 6 months. If the water flow to the water dispenser or
ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed,
replace the water filter more often.
Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase a replacement water filter, model UFK8001AXX-750,
contact your dealer or call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or
1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.
1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.
REFRIGERATOR CARE
Cleaning
WARNING
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
■ To keep your stainless steel refrigerator looking like new
and to remove minor scuffs or marks, it is suggested that
you use the manufacturer’s approved Stainless Steel
Cleaner and Polish, Part Number 20000008. To order the
cleaner, call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777
Canada.
IMPORTANT: This cleaner is for stainless steel parts only!
Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come
into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces,
dispenser covers or door gaskets. If unintentional contact
does occur, clean plastic part with a sponge and mild
detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
4. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments. If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to
3 months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
■
Remove the base grille.
■
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
■
Replace the base grille when finished.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
Changing the Light Bulb
NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to
replace the bulb with an appliance bulb of the same size, shape,

buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
