The temperature
control is located at the top of the refrigerator
compartment.
It controls the temperature
in both the refrigerator
and freezer compartments.
For your convenience,
the Temperature Control is preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator, make sure that the
control is still preset to the mid-setting
as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator off, turn the refrigerator control to
the word OFF or until the word OFF appears. Your product will
not cool when the refrigerator control is set to OFF.
IM PO RTANT:

coldest
Give your refrigerator time to cool down completely
before
adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food
into the refrigerator.
If you add food before the refrigerator has cooled completely,
your food may spoil. Adjusting the Refrigerator and Freezer
Controls to a higher (colder) than recommended
setting will
not cool the compartments
any faster.
Adjusting Controls
The mid-setting
indicated in the previous section should be
correct for normal household usage. The controls are set
correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice
cream is firm.
If the temperature
is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures,
use the settings listed in the
chart below as a guide. Wait at least 24 hours between
adjustments
and then recheck the temperatures.

Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
NOTE: Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
To turn the ice maker on, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is
made, the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice
cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up)
position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, lift the wire shutoff arm to
the OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click to make sure
the ice maker will not continue to operate.
Ice Production
Rate
NORMAL Ice Production: The ice maker should produce
approximately
8 to 12 batches of ice in a 24-hour period. If
ice is not being made fast enough, turn the Freezer Control
toward a higher (colder) number in half number steps. (For
example, if the control is at 3, move it to between 3 and 4.)
Wait 24 hours and, if necessary, gradually turn the Freezer
Control to the highest setting, waiting 24 hours between each
increase.
MAXIMUM Ice Production (on some models): The ice maker
should produce approximately
16 to 20 batches of ice in
a 24-hour period. If your refrigerator has the maximum ice
production
feature, push the switch to MAX.
Remember
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the
ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener
chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker
and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot
be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating
properly and is well maintained.
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.
