NOTE:
If your
model
has a base grille
filter
system,
make
sure
the base grille
filter
is properly
installed
and the cartridge
cap
handle
is in the horizontal
position.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
2o Flush the water
system.
Use a sturdy
container
to depress
and hold the water
dispenser
lever 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
lever (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.
3.
Open
the freezer
door and turn on the ice maker.
For Style 1,
lower
the wire shutoff
arm.
For Style 2, move the switch
to
the ON
(left)
position.
Please refer
to the "Ice
Maker
and
Storage
Bin" section
for further
instructions
on the operation
of your
ice maker.
Allow
24 hours to produce
the first
batch
of ice.
Discard
the first three
batches
of ice produced.
Depending
on your
model,
you may want
to select
the
maximum
ice feature
to increase
the production
of ice.
Your new refrigerator
may make
sounds
that your
old one didn't
make.
Because
the sounds are new to you, you might
be
concerned
about
them.
Most
of the new sounds
are normal.
Hard
surfaces,
such as the floor,
walls,
and cabinets,
can
make
the sounds
seem louder.
The following
describes
the kinds of
sounds
and what
may be making
them.
If your
refrigerator
is equipped
with
an ice maker,
you will
hear a buzzing
sound when the water
valve
opens
to fill the
ice maker
for each
cycle.
Your refrigerator
is designed
to run more efficiently
to keep
your food
items at the desired
temperatures
and to minimize
energy
usage. The high efficiency
compressor
and fans may
cause your
refrigerator
to run longer
than your
old one. You
may
also hear a pulsating
or high-pitched
sound from
the
compressor
or fans adjusting
to optimize
performance.
You may hear the evaporator
fan motor circulating
air
through the refrigerator
and freezer compartments.
The fan
speed may increase as you open the doors or add warm
food.
Rattling
noises may come
from
the flow
of refrigerant,
the
water
line, or items stored
on top of the refrigerator.
Water
dripping
on the defrost
heater
during
a defrost
cycle
may
cause a sizzling
sound.
As each cycle
ends, you may hear a gurgling
sound due to
the refrigerant
flowing
in your
refrigerator.
Contraction
and expansion
of the inside
walls
may cause a
popping
noise.
You may hear air being
forced
over
the condenser
by the
condenser
fan.
You may hear water
running
into the drain
pan during
the
defrost
cycle.
REFRIGERATOR USE
In order
to ensure
proper
temperatures,
you need to permit
air
to flow
between
the two sections.
Cold air enters
the bottom
of
the freezer
section
and moves
up. It then
enters the refrigerator
section
through
the top vent. Air then returns
to the freezer
as
shown.

Illiiiiiii iiiii
__=__
Do not block
any airflow
vents. If the vents are blocked,
airflow
will be obstructed
and temperature
and moisture
problems
may
occur.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
For your
convenience,
your
refrigerator
controls
are preset
at
the factory.
When
you first
install
your
refrigerator,
make
sure
that the controls
are still preset.
The Refrigerator
Control
and the
Freezer
Control
should
both
be set to the "mid-settings."
