If your refrigerator
has an automatic
ice maker,
it will provide a sufficient supply of ice for
normal use. During the initial startup of your
refrigerator, no ice will 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.

container is full.
