Unpack the Refrigerator

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
IMPORTANT: Do not remove the white foam air return insert from
behind the control panel on the ceiling of the refrigerator. If the
insert is removed, ice may migrate down from the freezer and
cause icicles to form.
1. Using two or more people, tilt the refrigerator to one side.
Remove the screws fastening the plastic runner to the bottom
of the refrigerator. Repeat to remove the runner from the
opposite side.
2. Locate the brake foot inside the crisper drawer. Insert the
brake foot into the bottom hole of the roller assembly on the
front, hinge side of the refrigerator.
NOTE: The brake foot is used when leveling the refrigerator.
To level the refrigerator, see "Adjust the Doors."
3. Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the refrigerator. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap
over the adhesive with your fingers. Rinse with warm water
and dry with a soft cloth.
NOTE: Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol,
flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue.
These products can damage the surface of your refrigerator.
For more information see "Refrigerator Safety."
When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for
cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with
cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always pull
the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or
"walk" the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor
damage could occur.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
"Refrigerator Care."
Important information to know about glass shelves
and covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-size pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and covers
are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to avoid
dropping.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Location Requirements

WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor household
use only.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for ½"
(1.25 cm) of space on each side and at the top. Allow for 1"
(2.54 cm) of space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has
an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line
connections. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall,
leave a 2" (5.08 cm) minimum space on the hinge side (some
models require more) to allow the door to swing open.
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where the
temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a maximum
of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature range for
optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage and
provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F
(32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.
