The ice and water dispenser conveniently dispenses chilled water, and ice cubes or crushed ice, depending on the model.
To operate the ice dispenser, select the ice option desired using the touchpad. Press a glass against the dispensing paddle
as far up as possible to catch all ice. To stop dispensing ice, pull glass away from dispensing paddle. Do not remove the
glass until the ice has completely dispensed. (Complete instructions for the dispenser operation are attached to the inside
of the freezer door.)
How the Water Dispenser Works
The water tank, located behind the refrigerator compartment, automatically fills as water is dispensed. For proper dispenser
operation, the recommended supply water pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi.
Water pressure must not exceed 100 lbs. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
After the refrigerator is connected to the water supply, fill the water tank by drawing one glass of water. It may take about
1½ minutes after activating the dispenser paddle before water begins to fill this first glass. Continue flushing the system
for 3 minutes to rid the tank and plumbing connections of any impurities. The water dispenser has a built in shutoff device
that will stop the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. Simply release the dispenser paddle to reset the shutoff
Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected
to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained and working properly.
or have an odd flavor. These should be discarded until the cubes made are free of discoloration and taste.
Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor. Empty the ice container and ensure that the ice maker's On/Off
power switch is turned On (set to the "I" position). The ice maker will then produce more ice.
Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice separated.
Keep the ice maker's On/Off power switch turned Off (set to the "O" position) until the refrigerator is connected to the water
supply or whenever the water supply is turned off.
IMPORTANT: The ice maker is turned On at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator.
cannot connect a water supply, turn the On/Off switch to the Off ("O") position. Otherwise, the ice maker's valve
may be noisy when it attempts to operate without water.
If the dispensing paddle is pushed for more than 4 minutes, the dispenser motor may overload
and stop. The overload protector will reset automatically after 3 or 4 minutes.
If a large quantity of ice is needed at one time, it is best to remove cubes directly from the ice container.
The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating:
Motor running
Ice dropping into ice container
Water valve opening or closing
Turn Off the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations.
If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period of time, you should also turn off the water supply valve.

Automatic Ice and Water Dispenser

How the Ice Dispenser Works
The ice maker and container are located in the top of the freezer compartment. After the
refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can begin
making ice within 24 hours. Air in new plumbing lines may cause the ice maker to cycle two
or three times before making a full tray of ice. Ice production is controlled by the ice
maker's On/Off power switch. Press the switch to the "O" position to turn it Off and press it
to the "I" position to turn it On. With no usage it will take approximately 2 days to fill the ice
container. The ice maker also has a built-in wire signal arm,which automatically stops ice
production when the ice bin is full. This signal arm should not be used to manually stop the
ice maker.
Because of new plumbing connections, the first production of ice cubes may be discolored
