Door Closing
Please read before using the water system.
Your refrigerator has two front adjustable rollers - one on the right
and one on the left. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you
want the doors to close easier, adjust the refrigerator's
tilt using
the instructions
1. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
2. Move the refrigerator into its final position.
3. Remove the base grille (see "Base Grille" earlier in this
section). The two leveling screws are part of the front roller
assemblies which are at the base of the refrigerator on either
4. Use a screwdriver to adjust the leveling screws. Turn the
leveling screw to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator
or turn the leveling screw to the left to lower that side. It may
take several turns of the leveling screws to adjust the tilt of
the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight oft the leveling screws and
rollers. This makes it easier to adjust the screws.
Immediately after installation, follow the steps below to make
sure that the water system is properly cleaned.
1. Turn oft the ice maker by opening the freezer door and lifting
up the wire shutoff arm as shown.
Install the interior water filter cartridge (on some models). The
interior water filter mounting bracket is located in the upper
corner of the fresh food compartment
of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system.
Carefully remove the interior water filter cartridge from its
packaging. Remove the red cap from the cartridge.
Apply the appropriate
month sticker to the cartridge as a
reminder to replace the cartridge within six months. Then
apply the "Water Filter Replacement Reminder" sticker to
your calendar.
Line up the INSTALL mark on the water filter label with the
indicator line that is molded into the filter mounting
bracket cover. Push the cartridge into the filter mounting
bracket. Twist the cartridge Y4turn to the right to lock it
into place. The REMOVE mark should be lined up with the
indicator line located on the front cover.
5. Open both doors again and check to make sure that they
close as easily as you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly
more to the rear by turning both leveling screws to the right. It
may take several more turns, and you should turn both
leveling screws the same amount.
6. Replace the base grille.
Door Alignment
If the space between your doors looks uneven, you can adjust it
using the instructions
1. Pry oft the top hinge cover.
2. Loosen the top hinge screws using a _/_6 in. socket or wrench.
3. Have someone hold the door in place or put a spacer
between the doors while you tighten the top hinge screws.
4. Replace the top hinge cover.
Use a sturdy container to depress the water dispenser bar
until the water begins to flow. Flush the water system by
and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8to 12 L) of water.
Cleaning the system will take approximately
6 to 7 minutes
and will help clear air from the line. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out
of the dispenser.
Inspect the filter system for water leaks. If you see water
leaks, see the "Troubleshooting"
