Ice Maker

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
between adjustments.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Allow 3 days
to completely fill the ice storage bin. Discard the first three
batches of ice produced.
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
