Ice & Water refrigerator
E402B, E442B and E522B models
Thank you for buying a Fisher & Paykel Active Smart™ refrigerator with automatic ice dispensing and chilled water through the door.
At Fisher & Paykel we are very proud of this refrigerator. We feel we have achieved water dispensing through the door without compromising the storage space or access in the fridge. During our testing we have enjoyed the health benefits of having cool filtered water so accessible, while minimising the number of door openings.
Thousands of hours of food care research and 70 years of refrigeration experience has been programmed into your refrigerator to give you the best possible performance.
We hope you enjoy your new refrigerator.
Before you start using your Ice & Water refrigerator
Check refrigerator is switched on and has cooled for at least 2 hours (refer to page 15 – The temperature of your refrigerator and freezer) before use. Check that the water filter has been connected and turned on. Turn on ice maker. At first use allow approximately 1 minute from when the dispensing pad is pushed until water is dispensed. This will allow the tank to fill. Run through and discard the first 3 L or 3 qt of water from the dispenser (refer to page 10 – First use). Discard the first bin of ice (refer to page 11 – First use).
You are now ready to enjoy ice and water from your Active Smart™ refrigerator.

Important safety instructions
Storing food and drinks
Never store volatile or flammable materials in your refrigerator or freezer as they may explode.
Never freeze liquids in glass containers. Liquid expands during freezing, which may cause the
container to explode.
Never freeze carbonated drinks. They may explode.
Do not consume food if it is too cold. Food removed from the freezer compartment may be cold
enough to cause damage when brought into contact with bare skin e.g. frozen ice cubes.
Power failure – food safety
Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. Follow the recommendations below if
you discover food in your freezer has thawed:
1) Ice crystals still visible – food may be refrozen but should be stored for a shorter period than
2) Thawed but refrigerator cold – refreezing generally not recommended. Fruits and some cooked
food can be refrozen but use as soon as possible. Meat, fish, poultry – use immediately or cook
then refreeze. Vegetables – discard as they usually go limp and soggy.
3) Thawed but warmer than 4˚C (38˚F). Red meat can be cooked immediately and refrozen but
use as soon as possible. Discard all other frozen foods.
Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. The food may be dangerous to eat.
Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents which may attack plastic
components of your refrigerator or freezer and cause them to crack. Please refer to the cleaning
care section of this booklet for further advice.

It is imperative the pressure reducing valve (PRV) is fitted prior to the filter. This valve ensures
the water will not flow back into the mains from the refrigerator water system. If the PRV is not
fitted to the connection line your Ice & Water refrigerator features may not function in some

adequate disinfection before or after the system.
WAR NIN G – connect to potable water supply only.
DO NOT install on line pressure above 900 kPa (130 psi) or below 150 kPa (22 psi).
DO NOT use on hot water supply (38°C [100°F max.]).
DO NOT install near electrical wires or water pipes that will be in the path of drilling when
selecting the location of filter system.
DO NOT mount filter in such a position so that it will be struck by other items, such as
wastebaskets, etc.
DO NOT install the filter in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to light can weaken plastic

AVO ID contamination of pipes during installation.
Installation instructions
Installation instructions:
Ensure that refrigerator is not plugged into a power supply.
Remove the compressor compartment cover from the rear
of the refrigerator (USA market only).
Locate isolation tap for water connection – cold water feed
only (dishwasher or sink mixer taps) – if you can’t find the
connection tap, contact an authorised plumber in your state
or town to fit your water connection.
Connect the 200 mm (8”) blue tubing to the outlet of the
PRV (blue collet) and the inlet connection of the water filter
cartridge as shown in Diagram 1. Gently pull on both ends
to ensure it is locked.
Connect the white 6 mm (¼”) tubing to the outlet of the
water filter cartridge as shown in Diagram 2. Gently pull to
ensure it is locked.
Measure the required length of tubing to run from the PRV
to the water connection point.
Cut the tubing making sure the ends are square and clean.
Connect the tubing to the tap connection and the base
of the PRV (white collet) and then to the tap as shown
in Diagram 3. Please note that the tap connection
supplied should fit most installation situations. If
your tap requires a different fitting, please contact an
authorised plumber in your state or town to purchase
the correct fitting.
Connect one locking key to each side of the water
filter cartridge in between the cartridge and the
locking collet as shown in Diagram 4.
To flush the water filter and check for leaks, aim the
end of the tubing into a bucket, turn isolating tap on and
run at least 3 litres (3 qt) of water through. Once complete,
turn isolating tap off.
Locate desired position for water filter noting carefully the
following points:
It is recommended to fit the filter in a vertical orientation with the water filter head at the top. This will minimise water leakage when replacing cartridge.
Ensure the filter is in a convenient location to access every 6 months for replacement. We suggest that this location is beside the water filter supply tap in the cupboard beside the refrigerator.
A minimum clearance of 64 mm (2 ½”) from the bottom of the filter cartridge is required to perform cartridge removal.
Do not screw filter to fridge.

Installation instructions
Attach double sided foam to the back of the water filter head as shown
in Diagram 5. Write the date to be replaced on the filter (date installed + 6 months). Remove double sided foam backing and attach filter to the desired position as located in step 11 (refer to previous page).
Run the 6 mm (¼”) tubing to back of the fridge ensuring there is enough
tubing to pull out the refrigerator for service.
Connect tubing into the water (solenoid) valve located on the right hand
side of the unit (compressor) compartment as shown in Diagram 7. Beware of hot pipes.
Pull gently on tubing to ensure it is locked in as shown in Diagram 8.
The completed installation should look like Diagram 9 on page 7.

kink or squash the water line running into the water (solenoid) valve.
Turn on refrigerator.
The first time you require water out of the dispenser, there will be a delay while the water
reservoir fills up. As this is happening, the
symbol will flash. Once the reservoir is full, this
symbol will stop flashing.
Run a further 3 litres (3 qt) through the system to ensure the reservoir is flushed out.
You are now ready to enjoy chilled water and ice dispensing from your Active Smart™ refrigerator.
Installation instructions
All connections must be checked for leaks. If unsure of connection process and/or leaks then contact your local plumber to install and check the system for you. Ensure white 6 mm (¼”) tubing is routed away from sharp objects, sharp corners (beware of kinking tube as this will stop water flow), clear of the refrigerator unit compartment and not in a location where it can be squashed. Ensure all push-fit connections are firmly pushed into place. The tube should push in 20 mm (¾”) before reaching the stop. If tubing is removed at any point, re-cut the end and re-insert. Tubing must be fully inserted to avoid leaks. To remove tube from connection points, turn off the isolating tap, push in the collet and gently pull tubing at the same time.
