IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

– 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.

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.

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., 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.

IMPORTANT

Pressing and holding theOn/Off button for three seconds, located on the temperature control panel (Electronic controls), or turning the Freezer and Fresh Food controls to

0” (Mechanical controls) 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.

Grounding type wall receptacle

Do not, under

any circumstances, cut, remove,

or bypass the grounding prong.

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 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:

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).

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 withself-tappingsaddle valve). Please refer to www.frigidaire.com/store for

more information.

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 2.

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER

Priming the Water Supply System Ice Production: What to Expect

Your refrigerator’s water supply system includes several tubing lines, an advanced water filter, a distribution valve bank, and a reserve tank to ensure ample supply to the ice and water dispenser at all times. This system needs to be

completely filled with water when first connected to an external supply line.

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.

To prime the water supply system:

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

2Keep 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.

Ice Maker Operation & Care

The ice maker, ice bin, and dispenser feeding mechanism are located in the top of the freezer compartment. After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. It can completely fill an ice bin in about two days.

How Much Ice Will a Side Mounted Ice Maker Produce in 24 Hours?

4.5 pounds of ice every 24 hours, depending on usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of

8 cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.

How Much Ice Will a Rear Mounted Ice Maker Produce in 24 Hours?

A rear mounted ice maker will produce 3 to

4 pounds of ice every 24 hours, depending on usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate of 8 cubes every 75 to 90 minutes.

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

Your ice maker is shipped from the factory with the wire signal arm in the ON position (side mounted) or with the switch turned ON (rear mounted). To ensure proper function of your ice maker, hook up water supply immediately or turn ice maker OFF by lifting the wire signal arm until it clicks

and locks in the UP position (side mounted) or turn the On/Off switch to the Off (0)

position (rear mounted). If the ice maker is not turned off and the water supply is not connected, the water valve will make a loud chattering noise.

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER

Turning the REAR MOUNTED Ice Maker On and Off

Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s ON/OFF power switch. To gain access to the

ice maker, pull the ice cream shelf out. Press the switch to the “O” position to turn it Off and press it to the “I” position to turn it On. The ice maker also has abuilt-inwire signal arm, which automatically stops ice production when the ice bin is full.DO NOT use this signal arm to manually stop the ice maker.

IMPORTANT

Small ice cubes or ice chips jamming in the ice maker may be a sign that your water filter needs changing. If you have a side mounted ice maker you may also experience hollow cubes partially frozen cubes with water inside. When these cubes are harvested, they break open and spill water over the other ice cubes in the ice container, forming a solid mass of ice. 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. The ice maker can’t fill every cube in the ice maker mold, leading to small cubes or chips that can get caught between the ice ejector blades and the stripper. Remember,

if your ice maker is jamming with small ice cubes or 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.

Ice Maker/Dispenser Tips

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

Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice separated.

If your refrigerator is not connected to a

water supply or the water supply is turned off, turn Off the ice maker.

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

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

-Motor running

-Ice dropping into ice container

-Water valve opening or closing

-Ice loosening from tray

-Running water

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

Turn Off the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations.

-If you turn Off the ice maker for a long period of time, you should also turn off the water supply valve.

CAUTION

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

18

AUTOMATIC ICE & WATER DISPENSER

Cleaning the Ice Maker

Clean the ice maker and ice bin at regular intervals, particularly before you take a vacation or move.

To clean the ice maker: 1 Turn Offthe ice maker.

2

Remove the ice bin by lifting up and out.

 

3

Empty and carefully clean the ice bin with

 

 

mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do

Auger

 

not use harsh or abrasive cleaners.

 

 

4Allow the ice bin to dry completely before replacing in the freezer.

5Remove ice chips and clean the ice bin shelf and the freezer door chute.

6Replace the ice bin. Turn On the ice maker to resume ice production.

Remove and empty the ice storage bin if:

An extended power failure (one hour or longer) causes ice cubes in the ice storage 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 storage 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 storage bin and dispenser mechanism.

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 90 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 only dispense Crushed Ice. The freezer door may also not close properly causing warm air to leak into the freezer.

19

CHANGING THE FILTER

Locating the Filter

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

Air Filter (some models)

The air filter is located at the top of the fresh food compartment next to the water filter.

Replacing the Air Filter

In general, you should change the air filter every six months (the filter status light on the control panel prompts you to replace the filter after six months) to ensure optimal filtering of refrigerator odors. You may want to adjust this time period depending on the types and amounts of food you typically

store in your refrigerator. To replace your

PureSource UltraTM air filter:

1 Pull the air filter housing straight out.

2Remove the old filter and discard it.

3Unpack the new filter and place it inside the housing.

4Slide the housing back into position.

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.
