Preparing for Vacation
For shorter vacations, remove perishable foods and leave controls
at regular settings. However, if room temperature is expected to
drop below 60°F. (16°C.), follow same instructions in Temperature
Control section.
For long vacations or absences, remove food and shut off power to
refrigerator. Move the Fresh Food control to OFF position and clean
interior with baking soda solution of 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of soda to
1 quart (1 L) of water. Wipe dry. To prevent odors, leave open box of
soda in refrigerator. Leave doors open.
Move the icemaker (on some models) feeler arm to STOP (up)
position and be sure to shut off water supply to the refrigerator.
Refrigerator Location
Do not install refrigerator where temperature will be below
60°F. (16°C.) because it will not run often enough to maintain
proper temperatures.
Do install it on a floor strong enough to support a fully loaded
refrigerator.

Rollers

Adjustable rollers behind the base
grille enable you to move the
refrigerator away from the wall for
cleaning. These rollers should be set
so the refrigerator rests firmly on the
floor. To assure that the doors will
close automatically from a half-way-
open position, there is a built-in tilt
from the front to the back of the
cabinet. Side-by-side refrigerators also
have specially designed door hinges that lift both doors slightly when
opened, allowing the force of gravity to help close them securely.

Water Supply to Icemaker

If your refrigerator has an icemaker, or if you plan to add an icemaker later, the icemaker will
have to be connected to a cold water line. A water supply kit containing copper tubing, shut-off
valve, fittings and instructions is available at extra cost from your dealer. There should be sufficient
tubing for the icemaker from the cold water supply to allow you to move the refrigerator out from
the wall several feet (approximately 8 feet [244 cm] of 1/4" copper tubing in three 10-inch [25 cm]
diameter coils).

PREPARATION

(on some models)
Preparing to Move
Disconnect power cord from wall outlet, remove all food, and clean
and dry the interior.
Secure all loose items such as grille, shelves and storage pans by
taping them securely in place to prevent damage.
Be sure refrigerator stays in upright position during actual moving and
in van. Refrigerator must be secured in van to prevent movement.
Protect outside of refrigerator with blanket.

Clearances

Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air
circulation, plumbing and electrical connections.
Sides ..................................................................5/8" (15 mm)
Top ....................................................................1" (25 mm)
(If built-in, allow 7⁄8 " [22 mm] for hinge covers.)
Back ..................................................................1" (25 mm)
If the refrigerator is against a wall on either side, allow the
following door clearances:
for 22 and 24 models .........................................3/4" (19 mm)
for 27 models .....................................................1

Leveling

To adjust rollers, remove the base
grille by grasping it at the bottom and
pulling it out.
Turn the roller adjusting screws
clockwise to raise the refrigerator,
counterclockwise to lower it. Use
an adjustable wrench (3/8" hex head
bolt) or pliers.
When leveling, you can improve door closure by raising the front
approximately 5/8" (15 mm) from the floor.
To replace base grille, align prongs on back of grille with clamps in
cabinet and push forward until grille snaps into place.
