If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, it will provide a
sufficient supply of ice for normal use. During the initial startup
of your refrigerator, no ice will be produced during the first 24
hours of operation. Air in new plumbing lines may cause the ice
maker to cycle two or three times before making a full tray of
ice. With no usage, it will take approximately one to two days to
fill the ice container.
New plumbing connections may cause the first production of ice
cubes to be discolored or have an odd flavor. Discard ice made
during the first 24 hours.
Automatic ice makers are also optional accessories that may
be installed in most models at any time. Call your local dealer
TURNING YOUR ICE MAKER ON
After the plumbing connections have been completed, the water
supply valve must be opened. Place the ice container under the
ice maker, pushing it as far back as possible. Lower the wire
signal arm to its "down" or ON position.
TURNING YOUR ICE MAKER Off
To stop the ice maker, lift the
wire signal arm until it clicks
and locks in the "up" or OFF
position. The ice maker also turns
off automatically when the ice
container is full. If your model has
an adjustable freezer shelf, place
the shelf in the lower position, so
that the wire signal arm will hit the
ice when the container is full.
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
Your ice maker is shipped from the factory with the wire signal
arm in the ON position. To ensure proper function of your ice
maker, hook up water supply immediately or turn ice maker
OFF by lifting the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in
the UP position. If the ice maker is not turned off and the
water supply is not connected, the water valve will make
a loud chattering noise.
ICE PRODUCTION: WHAT TO EXPECT
The ice maker will produce 2.5 to 3 pounds of ice every 24
hours depending on usage conditions. Ice is produced at a rate
of 8 cubes every 75 to 160 minutes.
DO NOT place the ice container in your dishwasher.
