Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced?
Be sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on. See "Connect the Water Supply."
Is an ice cube jammed
in the ejector arm? Remove the ice
from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil. See "Ice Maker."
Has a large amount of ice just been removed?
Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
Is the control set correctly?
If too little ice is produced, see
"Using the Control(s)," depending on the model.
Is a reverse osmosis
water filtration
system connected
to
your cold water supply?
See "Water Supply Requirements."
NOTE: If not due to any of the above, there may be a problem
with the water line. Call for service.
Off-taste
or gray color in the ice
Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
Have the ice cubes been stored for too long? Throw away
old ice and make a new supply.
Has food in the refrigerator
been wrapped
properly?
See
"Refrigerator Features."
Do the freezer and ice bin need to be cleaned?
See
"Cleaning."
Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
The divider between
the two compartments
is warm
The warmth is probably due to normal operation of the automatic
exterior moisture control. If still concerned,
call for service.
Temperature
is too warm
Are the air vents blocked
in either compartment?
This
obstructs cold air movement between the compartments.
Remove any objects from in front of the air vents. See
"Ensuring Proper Air Circulation" for the location of air vents.
Are the door(s) opened often? Be aware that the refrigerator
will warm when this occurs. In order to keep the refrigerator
cool, try to get everything you need out of the refrigerator at
once, keep food organized so it is easy to find, and close the
door as soon as the food is removed.
Has a large amount of food just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer? Adding a large amount of food
warms the refrigerator. It can take several hours for the
refrigerator to return to the normal temperature.
Are the controls
set correctly
for the surrounding
conditions?
See "Using the Control(s)," depending on the
model.
There is interior moisture buildup
Are the air vents blocked in the refrigerator? Remove any
objects from in front of the air vents. See "Ensuring Proper Air
Circulation" for the location of air vents.
Are the door(s) opened often? To avoid humidity buildup, try
to get everything you need out of the refrigerator at once,
keep food organized so it is easy to find, and close the door as
soon as the food is removed. When the door is opened,
humidity from the room air enters the refrigerator. The more
often the door is opened, the faster humidity builds up,
especially when the room itself is very humid.
Is the room humid? It is normal for moisture to build up
inside the refrigerator when the room air is humid.
Is the food packaged
correctly?
Check that all food is
securely wrapped. Wipe off damp food containers before
placing in the refrigerator.
Are the controls
set correctly
for the surrounding
conditions?
See "Using the Control(s)," depending on the
model.
Was a self-defrost
cycle completed? It is normal for
droplets to form on the back wall after the refrigerator self-
defrosts.
The doors are difficult to open
Explosion
Hazard
Use nonflammable
cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Are the gaskets dirty or sticky? Clean gaskets and the
surface that they touch. Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the
gaskets following cleaning.
The doors will not close completely
Are food packages blocking the door open? Rearrange
containers so that they fit more tightly and take up less space.
Is the ice bin out of position?
Push the ice bin in all the way.
Are the crisper cover, pans, shelves, bins, or baskets
out
of position?
Put the crisper cover and all pans, shelves, bins,
and baskets back into their correct positions. See
"Refrigerator Features."
Are the gaskets sticking?
Clean gaskets and the surface that
they touch. Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the gaskets
following cleaning.
Does the refrigerator
wobble or seem unstable?
Level the
refrigerator. See "Adjust the Doors."
Were the doors removed
during product
installation
and
net properly
replaced?
Remove and replace the doors
according to "Refrigerator Doors," or call a qualified service
technician.
