To Dispense
1. Press the button to select the desired type of ice.
2. Press a sturdy glass against the ice dispenser lever. Hold the
glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall
outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to
the lever in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard
will not make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.
3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
The Dispenser Light
Style 1: The dispenser light can be turned on by pressing the ON
Style 2: When you use the dispenser, the lever will automatically
turn the light on. If you want the light to be on continuously, you
may choose either ON or AUTO.

AUTO: Press the LIGHT button a second time to select AUTO.
The dispenser light will automatically
adjust to become brighter
as the room brightens, dimmer as the room darkens.

The dispenser lights are LEDs which should not need to be

be sure that the light sensor is not blocked (in AUTO mode). See

Water Filter (on some models)
If your refrigerator does not have the water filter status light, you
should change the water filter cartridge every 6 months
depending upon your usage. If the water flow to the water
dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months
have passed, replace the water filter cartridge more often.
NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically
or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may
be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable
Changing the Water Filter
The water filter is located in the base grille below the freezer
door. It is not necessary to remove the base grille
to remove the filter.
1. Remove the filter by pressing the eject button and pulling
straight out on the filter cap.
Avoid twisting the cap when removing the filter because
this could cause the cap to come off. If this occurs,
replace the cap and pull the filter straight out.
There will be water in the filter. Some spilling may occur.
The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product,
to the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates
the dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK button to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time
to unlock the dispenser.
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. When the status light changes from green to
yellow, this tells you that it is almost time to change the water
filter. It is recommended
that you replace the filter when the
status light changes to red OR when water flow to your water
dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably. To change the filter,
see "Changing the Water Filter" later in this section.
