Water Dispenser

IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy
container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for
5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing
and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off)
until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air
from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the
water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some
households. As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt
out of the dispenser.
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
Dispense at least 1 qt (1 L) of water every week to maintain a
fresh supply.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
Style 1 - Interior Dispenser Models
IMPORTANT: After 5 minutes of continuous dispensing, the
dispenser will stop dispensing water to avoid flooding. To
continue dispensing, press the dispenser paddle again.
To dispense water:
1. Hold a container under the dispenser spout while pressing the
dispenser pad.
2. Release the dispenser pad to stop dispensing.
Style 2 - Exterior Dispenser Models
The dispensing system will not operate when the refrigerator
door is open.
The display screen on the dispenser control panel will turn off
automatically and enter "sleep" mode when the control
buttons and dispenser levers have not been used for
2 minutes or more. While in "sleep" mode, the first press of a
control button will only reactivate the display screen, without
changing any settings. After reactivation, changes to any
settings can then be made. If no changes are made within
2 minutes, the display will re-enter "sleep" mode.
