Using
the automatic
ice maker
(Factory-installed
on some
models)
If you have an automatic ice maker, or lf you
plan to add one later (contact dealer for ice
maker kit number), there are a few things
you will want to 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 it is connected to the water supply.
Instructions
for ice maker water supply
hook up are attached to the back of the
refrigerator cabinet.
l
The dial or lever on the side of the ice
maker changes the size of the cubes.
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
qualii. lf a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure that the water
softener is well maintained and operating
properly.
