dispensing and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water.
Cleaning the system will take approximately
6 to 7 minutes

Turning the ice maker on/off
NOTE: Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
To turn the ice maker on, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is
made, the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice
cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up)
To manually turn the ice maker off, lift the wire shutoff arm to
the OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click to make sure
the ice maker will not continue to operate.
NORMAL Ice Production:
In Normal ice production
ice maker should produce approximately
8 to 12 batches of
ice in a 24-hour period. If ice is not being made fast enough,
turn the Freezer Control toward a higher (colder) number in
half number steps. (For example, if the control is at 3, move it
to between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours and, if necessary,
gradually turn the Freezer Control to the highest setting,
waiting 24 hours between each increase.
MAXIMUM Ice Production (on some models): In Maximum ice
the ice maker should produce approximately
to 20 batches of ice in a 24-hour period. If your refrigerator
has the maximum ice production
feature, push the switch to
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
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.
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
