Proper Disposal of Your Old Refrigerator
WARNING
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.
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
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 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 cover the floor with
cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. 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.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
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)
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
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
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.
■
For models with water filters, the disposable water filter
should be replaced at least every 6 months.
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.
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.
5. Using a cordless drill, drill a ¹⁄₄" hole in the cold water pipe you
have selected.
A
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
B
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.

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
copper tubing.

REFRIGERATOR USE
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
Opening and Closing Doors
(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
Humidity Control (on some models)
The humidity control turns on a heater to help reduce moisture on
the door hinge seal. Use in humid environments or when you

vegetables.
Dispensing Water
Ice Maker
(on some models)
1. Hold a container under the dispenser while pressing the
button.
2. Release the button to stop dispensing.
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
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.
Remember
■
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.
Water Filtration System
The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.
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.
IMPORTANT: The disposable water filter should be replaced 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 UKF8001AXX-750
Part Number UKF8001AXX, contact your dealer or call
1-800-442-9991 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.
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.
