ice Service
If your refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker_ it wiii
provide
a sumcient
supply of ice for normal
use. During
the initial
startup
of your refrigerator,
however, no ice wili
be produced
during the first 24 hours of operation.
Air in
new plumbing
lines may cause the ice maker to cycle two
or three times before making
a full tray of ice. With
no
usage, it will take approximately
one to two days to fill the
ice container.
New plumbing
connections
may cause the first production
of ice cubes to be discolored
or have an odd flavor.
Discard ice made during
the first 24 hours.
NOTE
Automatic
ice makers are also optional
accessories
that may be installed
in most models at anytime.

have been completed,
the
water supply valve must be opened.
Place the ice container
under the ice maker, pushing it as far back as possible.

or ON position.
Turning
your ice maker off

and locks in the "up" or OFF position.

will hit the ice when the
container
is full.

the ice maker,
if the ice maker
is connected to
soft water,
