Location Requirements
Explosion Hazard
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
(1.25 cm) of space on each side and at the top. Allow for 1"
(2.54 cm) of space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has
an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line
connections. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall,
leave a 2" (5.08 cm) minimum space on each side (depending on
your model) to allow the doors to swing open.
" (1.25 cm)
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).
Normal minimum cabinet cut-out width required for product
installation is 36" (91.44 cm). However, if the product is placed
against an extended wall and the ability to remove the crisper
pans is desired, an additional 18" (45.72 cm) of cabinet width
is required, so a total cabinet opening width of 54"
(137.16 cm) is recommended.
2" (5.08 cm)
Electrical Requirements
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an
extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or
Freezer Control depending on the model) to OFF and then
disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you
are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and
reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control
depending on the model) to the desired setting. See "Using the

NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a
(6.35 mm) saddle-type shutoff valve, a union, and copper tubing.

your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercing-type or
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
