Complete water supply connection before electrical supply
Use the pipe supplied with the new appliance; do not reuse

All appliances equipped with an automatic ice maker and
water dispenser must be connected to a water supply that
delivers only drinking water (with mains water pressure of
between 0.17 and 0.81 Mpa [1.7 and 8.1 bar]). Automatic ice

Adjust the Doors

Your refrigerator has two adjustable, front leveling screws –
one on each side of the refrigerator base. If your refrigerator
seems unsteady or you want the door to close easier, use the
instructions below.
Before moving the refrigerator, raise the leveling screws so the
front rollers are touching the floor.
1. Remove the base grille. Grasp the grille firmly and pull it
toward you.
NOTE: Depending on your model, you may need to remove
two screws before removing the base grille.
2. Raise or lower the cabinet.
Using a ¹⁄₄" hex driver, turn the leveling screw on each side to
raise or lower that side of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws. This
makes it easier to turn the screws. It may take several turns of
the leveling screw to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.
To raise, turn the leveling screw clockwise.
To lower, turn the leveling screw counterclockwise.
