Using the optional
automatic
ice maker
If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, or if
you plan to add one later (contact the dealer for ice
maker kit number), here are a few things you should
know.
l
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.
DOWN to make ice automatically
UP to shut off the ice maker
IMPORTANT:
Do not turn ice maker on until you
connect it to the water supply.
l
If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to shut
off the ice maker. When you replace the bin, push it
in all the way and lower the ice maker signal arm to
the ON position.
l
Good water quality is important for good ice quality.
Try to avoid connecting
the ice maker to a softened
water supply. Water softener chemicals (such as salt
from a malfunctioning
softener) can damage the ice
maker mold and lead to poor ice quality. If you
cannot avoid a softened water supply, make sure the
water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained.
