If your freezer has an automatic icemaker, it will
provide a sufficient supply of ice for normal use.
During the initial startup of your freezer, however,
no ice will be produced during the first 24 hours
Automatic ice makers are also optional
accessories that may be installed in some models
at any time. Call your local dealer for information.
Turning Your Ice Maker On
After the plumbing connections have been
completed, the water supply valve must be
opened. Place the ice container under the
ice maker, pushing it as far back as possible.
Lower the wire signal arm to its "down" or
ON position. New plumbing connections may
cause the first production of ice cubes to be
discolored or have an odd flavor. These first
cubes should be discarded until the cubes
produced are free of discoloration and taste.
Turning Your Ice Maker Off
To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal
arm until it clicks and locks in the "up" or
OFF position. The ice maker also turns off
automatically when the ice container is full.
If your model has an adjustable freezer shelf,
place the shelf in the lower position, so that
the wire signal arm will hit the ice when the
container is full.
Ice Maker Tips
• If the ice maker will be turned off for a
long period of time, turn the water supply
valve to the closed position.
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop an
odd flavor. Empty the ice container and
ensure that the wire signal arm is in its
"down" or ON position. The ice maker will
then produce more ice.
• Occasionally shake the ice container to
keep ice separated.
• Keep the wire signal arm in its "up" or
OFF position until the freezer is connected
to the water supply or whenever the
water supply is turned off.
• The following sounds are normal when the
ice maker is operating:
• Motor running
• Ice loosening from tray
• Ice dropping into ice container
• Running water
• Water valve opening or closing
Your ice maker is shipped with the wire
signal arm in the ON position. To ensure
proper function of your ice maker, hook up
water supply immediately or turn ice maker
OFF by lifting the wire signal arm until it
clicks and locks in the UP position.
Check the leveling bracket on the ice maker
to ensure the ice maker is level. If the gap
between the freezer wall and the ice maker
is the same at top and bottom, then ice
maker is level. If the ice maker is not level,
loosen the screw and slide the bracket
to the correct position to make it level.
Retighten the screw. You will need a ¼ inch
socket wrench for this task.
• DO NOT place the ice container in dish-
• Wash the ice container in warm water
with mild detergent. Rinse well and dry.
• Stop the ice maker when cleaning the
freezer and during vacations.
