GETTING STARTED

LEVELING AND DOOR ALIGNMENT
To view an animated video about
the leveling and door alignment
process, scan the code at left
with your mobile device.
To level the product or align the doors, you must first
remove the base grille as follows:
Open both doors to 90˚. Remove the base grille by
removing the two screws, then pulling out on the
outside corners.
NOTE: The doors must only be opened to 90˚. If
they are opened all the way, the base grille will not
come off.
If the refrigerator doors do not close easily or pop
open, or if the refrigerator seems unsteady or rolls
when a door is pulled open:
Use a
" open-ended or adjustable wrench to adjust
the leveling feet, which are located on the brackets
on each side of the product.
Turn the leveling foot to the left to raise that side
of the product, or turn it to the right to lower that
side of the product.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling feet,
making it easier to turn the feet.

Use a
" open-ended or adjustable wrench to turn
the alignment screw, which is located on the bottom
hinge of the refrigerator door.
Turn the screw to the right to raise the
refrigerator door, or turn it to the left to lower the
door.

ENERGY AND NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS
Your new refrigerator has been designed to optimize energy
efficiency, and better regulate temperatures to match cooling
demand. You may notice that it operates differently from your
previous refrigerator.
It is normal for the high-efficiency compressor to run for
extended periods of time at varying speeds, in order to
consume only the energy necessary for optimum efficiency.
In addition, during various stages of the cooling cycle and ice
production, you may hear normal operating sounds that are
unfamiliar to you. Normal sounds may include
cracking/crashing, popping, pulsating/whirring, rattling, water
running or gurgling, and sizzling.
