General Safety WARNING Please read all safety instructions before using your new refrigerator. Remove all staples from the carton to avoid injury. Staples can also damage finishes if they come in contact with other appliances or furniture. Child Safety Packing Materials: Packing cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets, or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers and can quickly cause suffocation. Destroy or recycle the product s carton, plastic bags, and any other exterior wrapping material immediately after the refrigerator is unpacked. Children should never play with these items. Child Entrapment and Suffocation: These problems are not limited to the past. Whether junked, abandoned, or temporarily stored (even for a few hours), unattended refrigerators and freezers are dangerous. Please take the precautions listed below. Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/Freezers We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/ disposal methods. Check with your utility company or visit for more information on recycling your old refrigerator. Before you recycle or dispose of your old refrigerator/ freezer: Remove the doors. Leave the shelves and baskets in place so children may not easily climb inside. Have refrigerant and compressor oil removed by a qualified service technician. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable liquids near this or any other appliance. Read product labels for warnings regarding flammability and other hazards. Do not operate the refrigerator in the presence of explosive fumes. Avoid contact with any moving parts of the automatic ice maker. 4 Safety Electrical information WARNING You must follow these guidelines to ensure that your refrigerator s safety mechanisms are operating correctly. The refrigerator must be plugged into its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC-only non-gfci electric outlet. The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for your protection against electrical shock hazards. It must be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. The receptacle must be installed in accordance with local codes and ordinances. Consult a qualified electrician. Do not use an extension cord or adapter plug. If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced by the manufacturer, service technician, or a qualified person. Never unplug the refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle to prevent damaging the power cord. To avoid electrical shock, unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before replacing a light bulb or LED light. Performance may be affected if the voltage varies by 10% or more. Operating the refrigerator with insufficient power can damage the compressor. Such damage is not covered under your warranty. Do not plug the unit into an outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to prevent the refrigerator from being turned off accidentally. IMPORTANT To turn off power to your refrigerator, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

We recommend using a service or kitchen contracting professional to install your refrigerator. Use the refrigerator only as instructed in this Use & Care Guide. Before starting the refrigerator, follow these important first steps. Location Choose a place that is near a grounded, non- GFCI, electrical outlet. Do Not use an extension cord or an adapter plug. If possible, place the refrigerator out of direct sunlight and away from the range, dishwasher, or other heat sources. The refrigerator must be installed on a floor that is level and strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator. Consider water supply availability for models equipped with an automatic ice maker. CAUTION DO NOT install the refrigerator where the temperature will drop below 55 F (13 C) or rise above 110 F (43 C). The compressor will not be able to maintain proper temperatures inside the refrigerator. DO NOT block the toe grille on the lower front of your refrigerator. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the proper operation of your refrigerator. Installation Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing and electrical connections: Sides & Top Back Door opening ³ ₈ inch (9.5 mm) 1 inch (25.4 mm) If your refrigerator is placed with the door hinge against a wall, you may have to allow additional space so the door can be opened wider. The refrigerator doors are designed to shut by themselves within a 20-degree opening. Your refrigerator should be positioned to allow easy access to a counter when removing food. For best use of refrigerator drawers and freezer baskets, the refrigerator should be in a position where both can be fully opened. Installation 7 Leveling Freezer Drawer (if necessary) 1 Check gasket seal around top, bottom, and sides of freezer drawer. 2 If gasket is not sealed, open drawer and slightly loosen four (4) drawer screws (two (2) on each side) to allow drawer to rotate. 3 Close drawer and recheck the seal on the gasket (A).

Use extreme CAUTION when installing these handles. Connecting the Water Supply 13 WARNING To avoid electric shock, which can cause death or severe personal injury, disconnect the refrigerator from electrical power before connecting a water supply line to the refrigerator. CAUTION To Avoid Property Damage: Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing is recommended for the water supply line. Water supply tubing made of ¼ inch plastic is not recommended to be used. Plastic tubing greatly increases the potential for water leaks, and the manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is used for the supply line. DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing. Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained and working properly. IMPORTANT Ensure that your water supply line connections comply with all local plumbing codes. Before installing the water supply line, you will need: 1. Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade screwdriver, and Phillips TM screwdriver 2. Access to a household cold water line with water pressure between 30 and 100 psi. 3. A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6 mm) OD, copper or stainless steel tubing. To determine the length of tubing needed, measure the distance from the ice maker inlet valve at the back of the refrigerator to your cold water pipe. Then add approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters), so the refrigerator can be moved out for cleaning (as shown). 4. A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your household water system. DO NOT use a selfpiercing type shutoff valve. 5. Do NOT reuse compression fitting or use thread seal tape. 6. A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting a copper water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve. To connect water supply line to ice maker inlet valve: 1. Disconnect refrigerator from electric power source. 2. Place end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve. 3. Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap. 4. If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (¼ inch / 6 mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over- tighten. See Figure 1. If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over- tighten. See Figure With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown. 6. Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only), about 2½ turns, behind refrigerator as shown and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface. 7. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak. 8. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power source. 9. To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (freezer ice maker) or
