Ice Production

(-23°C). The accelerated
ICE setting will remain on for 24
hours unless manually turned off.
If increased ice production
is desired at all times, set the
Freezer Control to a colder number. Setting the freezer to a
colder temperature
may make some foods, such as ice
cream, harder.

Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature
changes or impact, such as bumping.
For your protection,
tempered glass is designed to shatter
into many small, pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass
shelves and covers are heavy. Use special care when re-
moving them to avoid impact from dropping.
To care for ice storage bucket:
1. Empty the ice bucket. Use warm water to melt the ice if
NOTE: Never use anything sharp to break up the ice in the
bin or bucket. This can cause damage to the ice container
and the dispenser mechanism.
2. Wash ice bucket with a mild detergent, rinse well and dry
thoroughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
Discard the first three batches of ice produced to avoid
impurities that may be flushed out of the system.
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of
the water supplied to your ice maker.
Avoid connecting the ice maker to a softened water supply.
Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of
the ice maker and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water
supply cannot be avoided, make sure the water softener is
operating properly and is well maintained.
It is normal for the ice cubes to be attached at the corners.
They will break apart easily.
Do not store anything in the ice maker or ice bucket.
Your model may have glass or wire shelves. Store similar foods
together and adjust the shelves to fit different heights. This
reduces the time the refrigerator door is open and saves energy.
(on some models)
To remove and replace a shelf in a metal frame:
1. Pull the shelf forward to the stop. Tilt the front of the shelf up
and lift it slightly as you pull the shelf from the frame.
Replace the shelf by guiding it back into the slots on the
frame and pushing the shelf in past the stop.
