On some models, your refrigerator's accessory packet includes
an air filter, which must be installed prior to use. On some models,
the air filter is already installed at the factory.
The air filter reduces the buildup of odors. This helps to maintain a
cleaner environment inside the refrigerator.
Installing the Air Filter (on some models)
The filter should be installed behind the vented door, which is
located (depending on your model) along either the rear or left
interior wall near the top of the refrigerator compartment.
1. Remove the air filter from its packaging.
2. Lift open the vented door.
3. Snap the filter into place.
Installing the Filter Status Indicator (on some models)
The filter comes with a status indicator, which should be activated
and installed at the same time the air filter is installed.
1. Place the indicator face-down
on a firm, flat surface.
2. Apply pressure to the bubble on the back of the indicator, until
the bubble pops to activate the indicator.
3. Lift open the vented air filter door. On some models, there are
notches behind the door.
4. On models with notches:
Slide the indicator down into the notches, facing outward.
NOTE: The indicator will not easily slide into the notches
if the rear bubble has not been popped.
Close the air filter door, and check that the indicator is
visible through the rectangular hole in the door.
On models without notches:
Store the indicator in a visible place you will easily
remember - either inside the refrigerator, or elsewhere in
your kitchen or home.

the status indicator has completely changed from white to red.
To order a replacement air filter, see "Accessories."

On some models, your refrigerator's accessory packet includes a
Produce Preserver, which should be installed prior to use. On
some models, the Produce Preserver is already installed at the

produce items will stay fresh longer.
