Using the Controls
The temperature controls are located at the top front of the
refrigerator or freezer compartments.
For your convenience, the temperature controls are preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure the
controls are still set to the recommended setting as shown.
Recommended Setting "4"
The recommended setting should be correct for normal
household refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to cool completely before
adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled
completely, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature
controls to a colder than recommended setting will not cool
the compartments any faster.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not
blocked before adjusting the controls.
To Turn Off/On:
Press both Minus Sign touch pads repeatedly until a dash (-)
appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays. Neither
compartment will cool.
Humidity Control (on some models)
The humidity control turns on a heater to help reduce moisture on
the door hinge seal. Use in humid environments or when you
notice moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more
energy when Humidity Control is on.
Press the control to ON when the environment is warm and
more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.
Press the control to OFF to save energy when the environment
is less humid.
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or
freezer compartment, use the settings listed in the chart below as
Press the up or down arrow touch pads to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control
more than one setting at a time. Wait 24 hours between
adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.
REFRIGERATOR too warm
FREEZER too warm/too little ice
REFRIGERATOR too cold
FREEZER too cold
Crisper Humidity Control
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Depending on your model, adjust the control to any
setting between FRUIT and VEGETABLES or LOW and HIGH.
FRUIT/LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with
VEGETABLES/HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy
(on some models)
IMPORTANT: Flush the water system before turning on the ice
maker. See "Water Dispenser."
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
NOTE: Turn off the ice maker before removing the ice storage bin
to serve ice or to clean the bin. This will keep the ice cubes from
dropping out of the ice maker and into the freezer compartment.
After replacing the ice storage bin, turn on the ice maker.
Ice Production Rate
The ice maker should produce a complete batch of ice
approximately every 3 hours.
To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See "Using the Controls." Wait 24 hours
