EMOVING THE PULL
FREEZER FLOOR
(on some models)
The freezer floor pulls out for easier access to foods in
the back of the freezer and for easier cleaning.
To remove the freezer floor:
1.
Remove all food items from the freezer floor.
2.
Lift both back "fences" up and out.
3.
Pull the floor out about 1 inch (2.5 cm) with one hand
around the air tower section (center back) and one
hand at center front.
4.
Lift up floor at rear until hooks release from cabinet.
5.
Pull floor out the rest of the way.

SING THE OPTIONAL AUTOMATIC
ICE MAKER
Before you turn the ice maker on, be sure that it is
attached to a water supply. Refer to the "Attaching the
optional ice maker to a water supply" section.
The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm. Push the arm
down to start making ice automatically, and push it up
to shut off the ice maker.
If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to shut
off the ice maker. When you replace the bin, push it in
all the way and lower the ice maker signal arm to the
ON position.
It is normal for the ice to be attached at the corners.
They will break apart easily.
The ice maker will not operate until the freezer is cold
enough to make ice. This can take as long as overnight.
If ice is not being made fast enough and more ice is
needed, turn the Refrigerator Control toward a higher
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 toward COLDER, waiting 24 hours between
each increase.

REMEMBER:
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.
