Do not use with water that is microbiologically

unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or

after the system.
Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. When the water filter status display changes from
"GOOD" to "ORDER," this tells you that it is almost time to
change the water filter cartridge. Replace the water filter cartridge
when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE." If
water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases
noticeably, change the filter sooner. The filter should be replaced
at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and
usage.
After changing the water filter, reset the status light by pressing
and holding the FILTER button for 3 seconds. The status light will
change from "REPLACE" to "GOOD" when the system is reset.
Changing the Water Filter
1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. Turn the cap counterclockwise
to remove it from the filter.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are
still in place after the covers are removed.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispensers."
REFRIGERATOR CARE
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.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
4. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments.
If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant
pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to
3 months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Removethe
base grille.
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the gdlle,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
NOTE: Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the
bulb with one of the same size, shape and wattage. Replacement
bulbs are available from your dealer.
The dispenser lights are LEDs that can not be changed.
All other lights require a 40-watt bulb.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Remove light shield when applicable.
NOTE: To clean the light shield, wash it with warm water and
liquid detergent. Rinse and dry the shield well.
3. Remove light bulb and replace with one of the same size,
shape and wattage.
4. Replace light shield when applicable.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
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.
