Important Safety Instructions

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.

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.recyclemyoldfridge.com 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.

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 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.

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

Pressing and holding the On/Off button for three (3) seconds, located on the left side of 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.

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.

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.

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).

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

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

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 InletValve

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 / 6.4 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.

5.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 (side mounted) or set the ice maker’s On/Off power switch to the “I” position (rear mounted).

Ice service

Controls

 

 

If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, no ice will be produced during the first 24 hours of operation. Air in new plumbing lines may cause the ice maker to cycle two or three times before making a full tray of ice. With no usage, it will take approximately one to two days to fill the ice container.

New plumbing connections may cause the first production of ice cubes to be discolored or have an odd flavor. Discard ice made during the first 24 hours.

NOTE

Automatic ice makers are also optional accessories that may be installed in most models at any time. Call your local dealer for information.

Turning your Ice Maker On

After the plumbing connections have been completed, the water

supply valve must be opened. Place the ice container under the ice

maker, pushing it as far back as possible. Lower the wire signal

arm to its “down” or ON position.

Turning your Ice Maker Off

To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the “up” or OFF position. The ice maker also turns off automatically when the ice container is full.

IMPORTANT

Your ice maker is shipped from the factory with the wire signal arm in the ON position. To ensure proper function for 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.

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Freezer Control

 

Refrigerator Control

 

Temperature Adjustment

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

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.

IMPORTANT

Turning the refrigerator temperature control to “0” turns off the compressor and prevents the 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.

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.

NOTE

Rigid foam insulation is very energy efficient, but is not a sound insulator.

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.

IMPORTANT

During the automatic defrost cycle, you may notice a red glow in the vents on the back wall of your freezer compartment. This is normal during the defrost cycle.

DAutomatic ice maker When ice has been produced, you will hear ice cubes falling into the ice bin. The ice maker will produce 2.5 to 3

pounds of ice every 24 hours depending on usage conditions.

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 in the past. The compressor may have ahigh-pitchedhum 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.

10

Care & Cleaning

Protecting your investment

Keeping your refrigerator clean maintains appearance and prevents odor build-up.Wipe up any spills immediately and clean the freezer and fresh food compartments at least twice a year. When cleaning, take the following precautions:

Never use CHLORIDE or cleaners with bleach to clean stainless steel.

Do not wash any removable parts in a dishwasher.

Always unplug the electrical power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning.

Remove adhesive labels by hand. Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments which can scratch the appliance surface.

Do not remove the serial plate.

Do not use abrasive cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, brushes, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior doors, gaskets or cabinet liners. Do not use paper towels, metallic scouring pads, or other abrasive cleaning materials or strong alkaline solutions.

NOTE

If you set your temperature controls to turn off cooling, power to lights and other electrical components will continue until you unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

CAUTION

Pull the refrigerator straight out to move it. Shifting it from side to side may damage flooring. Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond the plumbing connections.

Damp objects stick to cold metal surfaces. Do not touch refrigerated surfaces with wet or damp hands.

IMPORTANT

If you store or move your refrigerator in freezing temperatures, be sure to completely drain the water supply system. Failure to do so could result in water leaks when the refrigerator is put back into service. Contact a service representative to perform this operation.
