Crisper Humidity Control
(on some models)

Water and Ice Dispensers
(on some models)
IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy
container to depress and hold the water dispenser pad for
5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing
and releasing the dispenser pad (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off)
until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air
from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the
water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some
households. As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt
out of the dispenser.
The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door

used for 2 minutes or more. While in "sleep" mode, the first
press of a control button will only reactivate the display
screen, without changing any settings. After reactivation,
changes to any settings can then be made. If no changes are
made within 2 minutes, the display will re-enter "sleep" mode.
