IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Proper Disposal of your Refrigerator or Freezer

Risk of child entrapment

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned 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.

Proper Disposal of Refrigerators/ Freezers

We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/disposal methods. Check with your utility company or visit www.energystar.gov/recycle for more information on recycling your old refrigerator.

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.

Electrical information

The refrigerator must be plugged into its own dedicated 115 Volt, 60 Hz., 15 Amp, AC only electrical outlet. The power cord of the appliance is equipped with a threeprong 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. Avoid connecting refrigerator to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit. Do not use an extension cord or adapter plug.

If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced by an authorized service technician 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 electrical outlet controlled by a wall switch or pull cord to prevent the refrigerator from being turned off accidentally.

IMPORTANT

CFC/HCFC Disposal

Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used CFCs or HCFCs (chlorofluorocarbons or hydrochlorofluorocarbons). CFCs and HCFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone if released to the atmosphere. Other refrigerants may also cause harm to the environment if released to the atmosphere.

If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the refrigerant is removed for proper disposal by a qualified technician. If you intentionally release refrigerant, you may be subject to fines and imprisonment under provisions of environmental legislation.

IMPORTANT

Pressing and holding the On/Off button for three seconds, located on the temperature control panel, will disable your refrigerator’s cooling system 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 electrical outlet.

3

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Grounding type wall receptacle

Do not, under

any circumstances, cut, remove,

or bypass the grounding prong.

Power cord with 3-pronggrounded plug

CAUTION

To avoid personal injury or property damage, handle tempered glass shelves carefully. Shelves may break suddenly if nicked, scratched, or exposed to sudden temperature change.

This Use & Care Guide provides general installation and operating instructions for your model. 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.

Installation

Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing and electrical connections:

Sides & Top

⅜ inch (9.5 mm)

Back

1 inch (25.4 mm)

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.

NOTE

If your refrigerator is placed with the door hinge side against a wall, you may have to allow additional space so the door can be opened wider.

Door 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.

15

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY

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.

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

Do not re-usecompression fitting or use thread seal tape.

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

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 water softener can damage the ice maker. If your home has a water softening system, ensure the softener is maintained and working properly.

NOTE

Check with your local building authority for recommendations on water lines and associated materials prior to installing your new refrigerator. Depending on your local/

state building codes, Frigidaire recommends for homes with existing valves its Smart Choice® water line kit 5305513409 (with

a 6 ft. Stainless Steel Water Line) and for

homes without an existing valve, Frigidaire recommends its Smart Choice® water line

kit 5305510264 (with a 20 ft. Copper Water Line with self-tappingsaddle valve). Please refer to www.frigidaire.com/store for more information.

IMPORTANT

Ensure that your water supply line connections comply with all local plumbing codes.

Before Installing The 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 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).

16

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY

To Connect Water Supply Line To

Ice Maker Inlet Valve

1Disconnect refrigerator from electric power source.

2Place 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.

3Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.

4If 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/6.4 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 1.

5With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.

6Coil 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. Do not kink tubing.

7Turn ON water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.

8Reconnect refrigerator to electrical power source.

9To turn ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (freezer ice maker) or set the ice maker’s On/Off power switch to the “On” position (fresh food ice maker).

The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the refrigerator and its controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community.

Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding both the “ ” and “+” for five seconds. The display shows “Sb” while in

Sabbath mode.

In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, for example due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound intermittently for about two minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if

the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator

will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.

For further assistance, guidelines for proper usage and a complete list of models

with the Sabbath feature, please visit the web at http:\\www.star-k.org.

NOTE

While in Sabbath Mode, neither the lights, dispenser, nor the control panel will work until Sabbath Mode is deactivated.

Refrigerator stays in Sabbath Mode after power failure recovery. It must be

deactivated with the buttons on the control panel.

NOTE

Although you have entered the Sabbath Mode, the ice maker will complete the cycle it had already initiated. The ice cube compartment will remain cold and new ice cubes can be made with standard trays.

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER

Priming the water supply system

CAUTION

For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between

30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.

1Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.

2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes.

3Continue dispensing water for about four minutes to

flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).

NOTE

The water dispenser has a built-indevice that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.

NOTE

Dispensed water is chilled. For colder water, add ice to cup or container before dispensing water.

Ice maker operation & care

After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.

IMPORTANT

Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker’s On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker’s fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.

Turning the fresh food ice maker on and off

Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the “Ice Off” icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker “ON” or “OFF”. The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the “Ice Off” icon is illuminated.

IMPORTANT

Turning off the ice maker will disable the ice dispenser. You will still be able to dispense water.

NOTE

The ice maker also has a built-inplastic signal bale arm that automatically stops ice production when the ice bin is full. This signal arm should not be used to manually stop the ice maker.

Using the ice maker after installation

Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system

is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.

IMPORTANT

On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be

replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it’s been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER

Ice maker/dispenser tips

If your refrigerator is not connected to a water supply or the water supply is turned off, turn off the ice maker by holding the On/Off soft-touchicon for three seconds.

The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating:

-Motor running

-Ice dropping into ice bin

-Water valve opening or closing

-Running water

When dispensing ice, you will hear a snapping or clicking sound when the ice chute opens and closes.

If you need a large quantity of ice at one time, it is best to get cubes directly from the ice bin.

Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor. Empty the ice bin as explained below.

When dispensing cubed ice, it is normal to have a small quantity of little pieces along with the whole cubes.

CAUTION

If the water supply to your refrigerator is softened, be sure the softener is properly maintained. Chemicals from a water softener can damage the ice maker.

Cleaning the ice maker

Clean the ice maker and ice bin at regular intervals, especially prior to vacation or moving.

5Replace the ice bin. Turn the ice maker on.

Remove and empty the ice bin if:

An extended power failure (one hour or longer) causes ice cubes in the ice bin to melt and freeze together, jamming the dispenser mechanism.

You do not use the ice dispenser frequently.

Ice cubes will freeze together in the bin, jamming the dispenser mechanism.

Remove the ice bin and shake to loosen the cubes or clean as explained above.

CAUTION

NEVER use an ice pick or similar sharp instrument to break up the ice. This could damage the ice bin and dispenser mechanism.

To loosen stuck ice, use warm water. Before replacing the ice bin, make sure it is completely dry.

IMPORTANT

When removing or replacing the ice bin, DO NOT rotate the auger in the ice bin. If the auger is accidentally rotated, you must realign the auger by turning it in 45 degree turns (see below) until the ice bin fits into place with the drive mechanism. If the

auger is not properly aligned when replacing the ice bin, the refrigerator will not dispense ice. The fresh food door also may not close properly causing warm air to leak into the fresh food compartment.

AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER - FREEZER

Operation & Care of the Freezer Ice Maker (select models)

After the refrigerator is installed properly, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. It can completely fill the ice bin in about three days.

When using the ice maker for the first time and in order for the ice maker to work properly, it is necessary to clear air from water filter tubing.

Once ice maker begins making ice, allow the bucket to fill completely, then discard the first

TWO FULL buckets of ice. It will take at least two days to completely fill the bucket on regular ice making mode or 1½ days on fast ice mode.

The ice maker produces approximately four 2.5 pounds of ice every 24 hours depending on usage conditions.

IMPORTANT

Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, lift the ice maker’s wire signal arm to

turn it off. Otherwise, the ice maker’s fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.

Turning the ice maker on and off

STORING FOOD AND SAVING ENERGY

Ideas for storing foods

Fresh food storage

Keep the fresh food compartment between 34° F and 40° F with an optimum temperature of 37° F.

Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves, which reduces air circulation and causes uneven cooling.

Fruits and vegetables

Store fruits and vegetables in crisper drawers, where trapped moisture helps preserve food quality for longer time periods.

Wash items and remove excess water.

Wrap any items that have strong odors or high moisture content.

Meat

Wrap raw meat and poultry separately and securely to prevent leaks and contamination of other foods or surfaces.

Use the deli drawer to store meat/poultry for short-termstorage. Any meat to be kept longer than two days should be frozen.

Frozen food storage

Keep the freezer compartment at 0° F or lower.

A freezer operates most efficiently when it is at least ⅔ full.

Packaging foods for freezing

To minimize food dehydration and quality deterioration, use aluminum foil, freezer wrap, freezer bags, or airtight containers. Force as much air out of the packages as possible and seal them tightly. Trapped air can cause food to dry out, change color, and develop an off-flavor(freezer burn).

Wrap fresh meats and poultry with suitable freezer wrap prior to freezing.

Do not refreeze meat that has completely thawed.

Loading the freezer

Prior to grocery shopping, activate

“quick freeze” so that on your return you can ensure your newly purchased food designated for the freezer will be preserved as quickly as possible.

Activating “quick freeze” also will help your freezer more efficiently maintain the selected temperature after placing new purchases with pre-existingfrozen foods.

Avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer at one time. This overloads the freezer, slows the rate of freezing, and can raise the temperature of frozen foods.

Leave a space between packages, so cold air can circulate freely, allowing food to freeze as quickly as possible.

Ideas for saving energy

Installation

Locate the refrigerator in the coolest part of the room, out of direct sunlight, and away from heating ducts or registers.

Do not place the refrigerator next to heatproducing appliances such as a range, oven, or dishwasher. If this is not possible, a section of cabinetry or an added layer of insulation between the two appliances will help the refrigerator operate more efficiently.

Level the refrigerator so that the doors close tightly.

Temperature settings

Refer to the “Controls” section for procedures on temperature settings.

Food storage

Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator or blocking cold air vents. Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer and use more energy.

Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator. This cuts down on moisture build-upinside the unit.

Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings. Remove as many items as needed at one time and close the door as soon as possible.

Do not place a hot container directly on a cold shelf. Remember, such an extreme temperature change may damage the glass.

28

NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS AND SIGHTS

Understanding the sounds you may hear

Your new, high-efficiencyrefrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable.

The following is a list of major components in your refrigerator and the sounds they can cause:

AEvaporator Refrigerant through the evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling sound.

BEvaporator fan You may hear air being forced through the refrigerator by the evaporator fan.

CDefrost heater During defrost cycles, water dripping onto the defrost heater may cause a hissing or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a popping sound may occur.

DAutomatic ice maker When ice has been produced, you will hear ice cubes falling into the ice bin. Ice maker fan, water valve activation, and refrigerant gas fluid may create sounds from its operation.

EElectronic control & automatic defrost control These parts can produce a snapping or clicking sound when turning the cooling system on and off.

FCondenser fan You may hear air being forced through the condenser.

GCompressor Modern,high-efficiencycompressors run much faster than older models. The compressor may have a highpitched hum or pulsating sound.

HWater valve Makes a buzzing sound each time it opens to fill the ice maker.

IDrain pan (not removable) You may hear water dripping into the drain pan during the defrost cycle.

JCondenser May create minimal sounds from forced air.

LIce dispensing paddle When dispensing ice, you will hear a snapping, clicking, or popping sound when the solenoid opens and closes the ice chute.

MMotorized damper May produce a light humming during operation.

NOTE

Energy efficient foam in your refrigerator is not a sound insulator.

NOTE

During automatic defrost cycle, a red glow in the back wall vents of your freezer compartment is normal.

29

CHANGING THE FILTER

Locating the Filters

Your refrigerator is equipped with water filtering system. The water filter system filters all dispensed drinking water, as well as the water used to produce ice.

Water Filter

The water filter is located at the top right side of the fresh food compartment.

Replacing the Water Filter

In general, you should change the water filter

every six months to ensure the highest possible water quality. Water Filter Status on the user

interface prompts you to replace the filter after

a standard amount of water (200 gallons/757 liters for PureSource UltraTM) has flowed

through the system.

If your refrigerator has not been used for a period of time (during moving for example), change the filter before reinstalling the refrigerator.
