The icemaker will produce eight cubes per cycle---
approximately
100-130 cubes in a 24-hour period,
depending on freezer compartment
temperature, room
temperature, number of door openings and other
operating conditions.
If the refrigerator is used before the water connection is
made to the icemaker, set the icemaker's power switch to
O (off).
When the refrigerator has been connected to the water
supply, set the power switch to I (on).
The icemaker will begin to operate when it lowers to
freezing temperature. A newly-installed
refrigerator may
take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.
Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water
line to clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the
Automatic Shut Off Arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the Automatic Shut
Off Arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice.
It is normal for several cubes to be stuck together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become
cloudy, taste stale, and shrink.
NOTE: If the cube size is smaller or larger than you
expected, you can regulate the size with the cube size
button.
Every time you press the cube size button, the indicator
moves up one light. The higher the light position, the larger
the cubes will be. Pressing at highest position returns
indicator to lowest position.
WHEN YOU SHOULD
SET THE ICEMAKER
POWER SWITCH TO O (OFF)
• When the water supply will be shut off for several hours.
When the ice storage bin is removed for more than a
minute or two.
When the refrigerator will not be used for several days.
NORMAL
SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
The icemaker water valve will buzz as the icemaker fills
with water. If the power switch is in the I (on) position, it
will buzz even if it has not yet been hooked up to water.
To stop the buzzing, move the power switch to O (off).
NOTE: Keeping the power switch in the I (on) position
before the water line is connected can damage the
icemaker.
You will hear the sound of cubes dropping into the bin
and water running in the pipes as the icemaker refills.
