●●Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.

●●In case of damage to the refrigerant circuit, ventilate the area by opening all windows. Do not operate electrical equipment or any other equipment that may produce arcs, sparks or flames in the area. Contact your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician immediately to arrange for the appliance to be repaired.

●●Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.

Electrical

●●This appliance must be installed in accordance with the installation instructions before use.

●●To allow disconnection of the appliance from the supply after installation, incorporate a switch in the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules.

●●Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet.

●●Do not plug in any other appliance at the same power point as your refrigerator or use extension cords or double adapters or ungrounded (two prong) adapters.

●●Repair or replace immediately all electric service cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion along its length or at either the plug or appliance end.

4

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

●●If the power supply cord is damaged, it must only be replaced by your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician because special purpose tools are required.

●●When moving your appliance away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

●●Follow the National Electrical Code and all local codes and ordinances when installing this product.

●●Warning: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) may trip during normal operation of your refrigerator and interrupt the power supply. The use of a GFCI is not recommended with this product.

IMPORTANT!

Your refrigerator is designed to operate for many years without the need for service checks. However, if your refrigerator is malfunctioning, have it attended to by your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician as soon as possible. All electrical repairs must be carried out by an adequately trained service technician or qualified electrician.

Cleaning

●●Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents that may attack the plastic components of your refrigerator and cause them to crack.

●●Avoid using anti-bacterial cleaning products on either the interior or exterior of the cabinet as they may cause rusting of metal components and cracking of plastic components.

●●Please refer to the ‘Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator’ section of this user guide for further information.

Disposal

Extreme care must be taken when disposing of your old appliance to avoid hazards:

The flammable refrigerant gas must be safely removed.

The thermal insulation foam in this appliance contains flammable insulation blowing gases, any exposed foam may be highly flammable and must be carefully treated during disposal.

The refrigerator doors and/or door panel set(s) should be removed and the shelves left in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

●●Your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician will be able to give advice on environmentally friendly methods of disposing of your old refrigerator or freezer.

Storing food and drinks

●●Do not store explosive substances such as aerosol cans with a flammable propellant in this appliance.

●●Never store volatile or flammable materials in your refrigerator 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, eg frozen ice cubes.

5

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

Power failure – food safety

●●Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. The food may be dangerous to eat. Follow the recommendations below if you discover food in your freezer has thawed:

Ice crystals still visible – food may be refrozen but should be stored for a shorter period than recommended.

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.

Thawed and warmer than 41°F (5°C) – discard all food.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Please follow the installation steps below to ensure your appliance operates correctly.

1.Power

●●The appliance must be installed so the plug is accessible.

●●To ensure that the appliance is not accidentally switched off, connect your refrigerator to its own power point. Do not plug in any other appliance at this power point or use extension cords and double adaptors, as the combined weight of both power cords can pull the double adaptor from a wall outlet socket.

●●For power requirements, refer to the information on the serial plate located at the front bottom right-hand side of the refrigerator when the door is open.

●●It is essential that the appliance is properly grounded (earthed).

2.Location

●●Your refrigerator should not be located in direct sunlight or next to any heat generating appliance such as a cooktop, oven or dishwasher.

3.Ice & Water and Automatic Ice models

●●Your Ice & Water and Automatic Ice refrigerator must be installed by an authorized plumber or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician as incorrect plumbing can lead to water leaks.

●●Fisher & Paykel Appliances does not accept responsibility for damage (including water damage) caused by faulty installation or plumbing.

IMPORTANT!

●●It is imperative the pressure reducing valve (PRV) is fitted prior to the water filter. The PRV protects your refrigerator from damage. If the PRV is not fitted to the connection line your warranty will be void and the product may leak.

●●The water connection to your Ice & Water refrigerator must be installed by an authorised plumber or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician and comply with all state and local laws.

●●The water connection instructions below are intended only for the professional installer.

●●The new tubing supplied with the refrigerator is to be used, old tubing from old water and ice connections should not be used.

●●1/4” copper tubing can be connected to the appliance. An adapter that connects the copper water line from 1/4” compression fitting to a suitable quick connect fitting is required for proper installation of the water line to the installation components

supplied. Failure to use a suitable adapter will result in leaks and/or property damage.

●●Replacement parts are available through Customer Care or online at fisherpaykel.com (this service is available to selected markets only).

INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS/WARNING

●●DO NOT use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.

●●WARNING — connect to potable water supply only.

●●DO NOT install on line pressure above 120psi (827kPa) or below 25psi (172kPa).

●●DO NOT use on hot water supply 100°F (38°C) max.

●●DO NOT cut any length of tube shorter than 8” (200mm).

●●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 the water filter in such a position so that it will be struck by other items, such as wastebaskets, etc.

●●DO NOT install the water filter or any water tubing in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to light can weaken plastic components.

●●DO NOT install in a location that is susceptible to freezing temperatures as damage to the housing could occur.

●●DO NOT screw water filter mounting bracket to the refrigerator.

●●DO NOT install the filter or any water tubing in high temperature areas eg in a ceiling cavity.

●●AVOID contamination of pipes during installation.

●●DO NOT connect copper fittings directly to the fittings of this refrigerator. If connecting copper tubing to this refrigerator an appropriate adaptor must be used.

●●DO NOT continuously dispense water for longer than 2 minutes.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Installation instructions:

1Ensure the refrigerator is NOT plugged into a power supply.

2Locate a cold water supply/feed that is suitable for a water connection.

3Connect the faucet connection fitting (A) to the faucet. Connect the short tubing (B) to the outlet of the faucet and secure with the locking key (C) (refer to Diagram 1)

4Connect the inlet of the PRV (D) to the tubing connected to the faucet (refer to Diagram 2). Ensure the arrow on the PRV is pointing away from the faucet. The arrow indicates the direction of water flow.

5Connect the inlet tube from the filter head to the PRV (refer to Diagram 3). The inlet tube can be identified by the downward

arrow on the filter head and a red mark on the tube.

IMPORTANT!

●●Ensure the inlet tubing is correctly connected to the PLV. Failure to do so may result in serious injury.

6Determine the mounting position for the water filter noting the following:

●●The water filter MUST not be mounted with the filter head position below the base of the filter (refer to Diagram 4). We recommend fitting the water filter in a vertical orientation with the filter head at the top. This will minimise water leakage during replacement of the water filter.

●●Ensure the water filter is in a convenient location to access every 6 months

for replacement. We recommend that this location is beside the water filter supply faucet in a cupboard beside the refrigerator.

●●A minimum clearance of 2” (50mm) from the bottom of the water filter is required to perform filter removal.

Attach the wall mounting bracket with the two screws provided, attach the bottom screw first then the top screw (refer to Diagram 5). Insert the filter water into the filter head. Push the filter firmly into the filter head and turn in a clockwise direction until it locks

into place (refer to Diagram 6).

To flush the water filter of any trapped air, harmless carbon fines and check for leaks:

Aim the end of the outlet tubing into a bucket, turn on the faucet and run at least 1 gal (4L) of water through. Once complete, turn the faucet off.

Note: Further flushing is required before first use of your ice or water functions,

please refer to ‘Before you start using the Ice & Water or Automatic Ice function’ for details.

Run the 1/4” (6mm) tubing to the back of the refrigerator ensuring there is enough tubing to pull the refrigerator out for service.

Using the measurement guide shown in Diagram 7, mark out 5/8” (16mm), on the end of the tubing as shown in Diagram 8.

Insert the outlet tubing to the water (solenoid) valve up to the marked line. The outlet tube can be identified by the upward arrow on the filter head and a blue mark on the tube.

IMPORTANT!

Ensure the outlet tubing is correctly connected to the refrigerator water valve. Refer to Diagram 3.

!3 Pull gently on tubing to ensure it is locked in as shown in Diagram 10.

!4 Turn the faucet on and check that all connections are dry and free of drips.

!5 Coil water line tubing behind the refrigerator. Push your refrigerator into place being careful not to kink or squash the water line tube.

!6 Read pages 16 – 17 carefully and then turn refrigerator on.
