Unpack the Refrigerator
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids,
or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can
damage the surface of your refrigerator. For more information, see
IMPORTANT: Do not remove the white foam air return insert from
behind the control panel on the ceiling of the refrigerator. If the
insert is removed, ice may migrate down from the freezer and
cause icicles to form.
When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator
for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor.
Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it.
Do not wiggle or "walk" the refrigerator when trying to move
it, as floor damage could occur.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
Important information to know about glass shelves
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection, tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when
removing them to avoid impact from dropping.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for a
(12.70 mm) space on each side. Allow 3" (7.5 cm) of space
between overhead cabinets and refrigerator top. Allow at least 1"
(25.40 mm) between back of cabinet and the wall. If your
refrigerator has an ice maker, make sure you leave some extra
space at the back for the water line connections.
If you are installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, leave
2" (5.08 cm) minimum on the hinge side (depending on your
model) to allow for the door to swing open.
Level the refrigerator. See "Adjust the Doors."
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near an oven, radiator, or other heat source. Do not install in a
location where the temperature will fall below 55°F (13°C).
