To Dispense Ice:
1. If the ice storage bin is located on the door, remove the
temporary shield from underneath the ice storage bin. See
"Ice Maker and Storage Bin."
2. Press the button to select the desired type of ice.

Failure to do so can result in cuts.
3. Press a sturdy glass against the ice dispenser lever. Hold the
glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall
outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to the
lever in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will
not make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.
4. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.

the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.

first three batches of ice produced.
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
