Anti-Tip Floor Bracket Installation (Models PYE, CYE, and PWE only)
WARNING
Built-in style models (model PYE, CYE, and PWE) are
top heavy, especially with any doors open. These
models must be secured with the anti-tip floor
bracket to prevent tipping forward, which could
result in death or serious injury. Read and follow
the entire installation instructions for installing the
anti-tip floor bracket packed with your refrigerator.

If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your
purchase, call 1.800.626.8774 to receive one at no
