Install Air Filter
(on some models)
On some models, your refrigerator's accessory packet includes
an air filter, which must be installed prior to use. On some models,
the air filter is already installed at the factory.
The air filter reduces the buildup of odors. This helps to maintain a
cleaner environment inside the refrigerator.
Installing the Air Filter (on some models)
The filter should be installed behind the vented door along the rear
interior wall at the top of the refrigerator compartment.
1. Remove the air filter from its packaging.
2. Lift open the vented door.
3. Snap the filter into place.
Replacing the Air Filter
The disposable air filter should be replaced every 6 months. The
refrigerator has a status indicator to help remind you when to
replace the filter. See "Using the Controls" for more information.
To order a replacement air filter, see "Accessories."
1. Remove the old air filter by squeezing in on the side tabs.
2. Install the new air filter using the instructions in the previous

The refrigerator and freezer controls are located on the panel on
the front of the freezer door.

Adjusting the Controls
For your convenience, your refrigerator and freezer controls are
preset at the factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make
sure that the controls are still set to the default settings. The
factory recommended set points are 4°C for the refrigerator and
-18°C for the freezer.
Wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. If you
add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely, your
food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the set points to a colder 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.
