Ice Service
Automatic
Icemaker
(on icemaker-equipped
models)
if your refrigerator
is
operated
before
water is
connected
to the
icemaker,
keep the
icemaker feeler arm in the
OFF (up) position
When
the refrigerator
has been connected
to
the water
supply and
the water
has been
turned
on, position the
lcemaker
Feeler Arm in
ition
Ice StorageBm
freezer shelf for icemaking
Top lugs on the multi-position
shelf should be in the 6th slots up from the boltom of the
track; the 2-position shelf
Feeler A rmin
should be in the lower
ON position
position Then move the
ice storage bin into place
under the icemaker and
move the feeler arm to the
ON (down) position,
The ice cube mold will
automatically
fill with water
after cooling to freezing temperature, and first cubes
normally freeze after several hours. When cubes are
solidly frozen, they will be ejected from the mold into the
ice storage bin by means of a sweeper arm lcemaking
will continue until the feeler arm senses that there are
enough cubes in the bin and halts the operation
temporarily
Be sure nothing interferes with the swing of
the feeler arm,
For maximum
ice storage,
level the stored cubes with
your hand occasionally
Once your icemaker
is in operation,
throw
away
the first few batches of ice cubes. This will flush
away any impurities in the water line Do the same thing
after vacations or long periods when ice isn't used
CAUTION:
Under certain rare circumstances, ice
cubes may be discolored, usually appearing with a
green-bluish hue This unusual discoloration
is
apparently due to a combination of factors such as
certain characteristics of local waters, household
plumbing and the accumulation of copper salts in an
inactive water supply line which feeds the icemaker
Continued consumption of such discolored ice cubes
may be injurious to health, If your ice cubes are
discolored, discard them and contact your Sears
Service Center
Move feeler arm to OFF (up) position
when:
• the home water supply is to be off for several hours
• the ice storage bin is to be removed for a period
of time
• going away on vacation. (Also turn off the valve in the
water supply line to the refrigerator.)
If ice is not used often, old cubes will become
cloudy and taste stale. Empty the ice storage bin
periodically
and wash it in lukewarm water_
If this is your first icemaker,
you will hear
occasional sounds that may be unfamiliar. They are
normal ice-making sounds and are not cause for
concern
ice Trays
(on models without automatic icemaker}
To release ice cubes, turn the tray upside down,
hold it over a container, and twist both ends_
For only one or two ice
cubes, leave the tray right-
side up, twist both ends
slightly, and remove as
many cubes as you want
Wash ice trays in lukewarm
water
ontyo Do not put
them in an automatic dishwasher
Automatic
Icemaker Accessory Kit
(optional at extra cost)
If your refrigerator did not come already equipped with
an automatic icemaker, you may add one- contact your
Sears store or Sears Service Center_
Water Filter Accessory
(optional at extra cost)
Your ice cubes can only be as fresh-tasting as the water
that produces them That's why it's a good idea to purify
the water with a water filter
The water filter is an optional part at extra cost and is
available from your Sears Service Center_ Order Filter
No. 978488
and it may be installed in minutes when
attached to the inlet water tube connection,
Water Supply Accessory
Kit
(optional at extra cost)
A water supply kit containing copper tubing, shut-off
valve, fittings and instructions needed to connect the
icemaker to your cold water line is also available
