Crisper Humidity Control
(on some models)
You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed
crisper. Adjust the control to any setting between LOW and
HIGH.
LOW (open) for best storage of fruits and vegetables with skins.
HIGH (closed) for best storage of fresh, leafy vegetables.
Ice Maker
Style 1
To Turn the Ice Maker On/Off:
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
Ice Production Rate:
The ice maker should produce approximately 8 to 12 batches
of ice in a 24-hour period.
To increase ice production, lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature. See "Using the Controls." Wait 24 hours
between adjustments.
For maximum ice production (on some models), push the
switch to ICE PLUS. The ice maker should produce 16 to
20 batches of ice in a 24-hour period in the Ice Plus mode.
Style 2
To Turn the Ice Maker On/Off:
To turn the ice maker ON, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
To manually turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff arm to the
OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made,
the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice cubes will
raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not
force the wire shutoff arm up or down.

Ice Production Rate:
The ice maker should produce approximately 8 to 12 batches
of ice in a 24-hour period with the ice level adjustment arm in
the factory set 100% position.
NOTE: Adjust the ice level by slightly pressing in on the ice
level adjustment arm, to release it from the wire shutoff arm,
and then moving it up or down to the desired setting.
To decrease the amount of ice produced, move the ice level
adjustment arm to the 75% or 50% position.
For maximum ice production move the ice level adjustment
arm to the 100% position.
Remember
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
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 maker to a softened water supply. Water softener
chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker
and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating
properly and is well maintained.
Do not use anything sharp to break up the ice in the bin. This
can cause damage to the ice container and the dispenser
mechanism.
Do not store anything on top of or in the ice maker or ice bin.

REFRIGERATOR CARE

Cleaning
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to avoid
buildup of odors. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To avoid odor
transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
