Hide thumbs


The Water Dispenser
IMPORTANT: Dispense at least 1 qt (1 L) of water every week to
maintain a fresh supply.
To Dispense Water:
1. Press ICE SELECTION on the control panel until the Water
icon appears on the display screen.
2. Press a sturdy glass against the dispenser pad.
3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
IMPORTANT: Limit water dispensing time to a maximum of
2 minutes at a time.
The Ice Dispenser
Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer when
the dispenser lever is pressed. To turn off the ice maker, see "Ice
Maker and Storage Bin."
Your ice maker can produce both crushed (on some models) and
cubed ice. Before dispensing ice, select which type of ice you
prefer by pressing the ICE SELECTION button.
The display screen indicates which type of ice is selected.
For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before being dispensed. This
may cause a slight delay when dispensing crushed ice. Noise
from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size.
When changing from crushed to cubed, a few ounces of crushed
ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.
To Dispense Ice:
1. Make sure the desired type of ice is selected. To switch
between cubed and crushed, press ICE SELECTION.
Cut Hazard
Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice.
Failure to do so can result in cuts.
2. Press a sturdy glass against the dispenser pad. Hold the
glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall
outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to the
pad in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will
not make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.
3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
NOTE: Ice may continue to dispense for several seconds after
removing the glass from the pad. The dispenser may continue
to make noise for a few seconds after dispensing.
IMPORTANT: Limit ice dispensing time to a maximum of
2 minutes at a time.
The Dispenser Light
When you use the dispenser, the light will automatically turn on.
When you stop using the dispenser, the light will automatically
fade to a lower intensity.
NOTE: The dispenser light will turn off when Vacation Mode is
active or when the Control Lock is turned on. See "Using the
Controls" for more information.
The dispenser lights are LEDs that cannot be changed. If it
appears that your dispenser lights are not working, see
"Troubleshooting" for more information.
The Dispenser Lock
The dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to avoid
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
See "The Control Lock" in the "Using the Controls" section.

Ice Maker and Storage Bin

Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. 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
Do not use anything sharp to break up the ice in the storage
bin. This can cause damage to the ice container and the
dispenser mechanism.
Do not store anything on top of or in the ice maker or
storage bin.
