IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

Please Read All Instructions Before Using This

Refrigerator.

FORYOUR SAFETY

Do not store or use gasoline, or other flammable liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Read product labels for warnings regarding flammability and other hazards.

Do not operate the refrigerator in the presense of explosive fumes.

Avoid contact with any moving parts of automatic ice maker.

Remove all staples from the carton. Staples can cause severe cuts, and also destroy finishes if they come in contact with other appliances or furniture.

CHILD SAFETY

Destroy or recycle the carton, plastic bags, and any exterior wrapping material immediately after the refrigerator is unpacked. Children should NEVER use these items to play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads, plastic sheets or stretch wrap may become airtight chambers, and can quickly cause suffocation.

WARNING

These Guidelines Must Be Followed To Ensure That Safety Mechanisms In This Refrigerator Will Operate Properly.

ELECTRICAL INFORMATION

The refrigerator must be plugged into its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only 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 threeprong 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 to prevent any risk.

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.

Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning and before replacing a light bulb to avoid electrical shock.

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.

Avoid connecting refrigerator to a Ground Fault Interruptor (GFI) circuit.

PROPER DISPOSAL OFYOUR REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER

Risk of child entrapment

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abondoned refrigerators or freezers are still dangerous – even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

Before you throw away your old refrigerator/ freezer:

Remove doors.

Leave shelves in place so children may not easily climb inside.

Have refrigerant removed by a qualified service technician.

IMPORTANT

Turning the Freezer and Fresh Food Controls to “0” turns off the compressor and prevents your refrigerator from cooling, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb and other electrical components. To turn off power to your refrigerator you must unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

INSTALLATION - CONNECTING ICE MAKER TO WATER SUPPLY

To Connect Water Supply LineTo 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. Unscrew plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.

4. Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line, as shown.

5. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (¼ inch). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.

6. With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.

7. Coil excess water supply line (about 2½ turns) behind refrigerator as shown and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.

8. Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.

9. Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power source. 10. To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (see ice maker front cover for ON/OFF position of arm).

Before InstallingThe Water Supply Line,You Will Need

Basic Tools: adjustable wrench,flat-bladescrewdriver, and PhillipsTM screwdriver

• Access to a household cold water line with water pressure between 30 and 100 psi.

A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6.4 mm) OD, copper tubing. To determine the length of copper tubing needed, you will need to 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).

• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your household water system. DO NOT use aself-piercingtype shutoff valve.

• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting the water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve.

TEMPERATURE CONTROLS

COOL DOWN PERIOD

To ensure safe food storage, allow the refrigerator to operate with the doors closed for at least 8 to 12 hours before loading it with food.

REFRIGERATOR & FREEZER CONTROLS

NOTE

When changing control settings, wait 24 hours before making additional adjustments.

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT

NOTE

When first turning refrigerator on, move refrigerator and freezer controls to which is the recommended initial setting. After 24 hours, adjust the controls as needed.

Adjust temperature gradually: move the knob in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize.

For colder temperatures, turn the knob towards Colder.

For warmer temperatures, turn the knob towards Cold.

Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer control will change only the freezer temperature.

To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the refrigerator and freezer compartments. For good circulation, do not block cold air vents with food items.
