Adjust the Door

Depending on your model, your refrigerator may have two
(Style 1) or four (Style 2) adjustable rollers located at the base of
the refrigerator. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you want
the door to close easier, adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the
instructions below.
1. Remove the base grille. Grasp the grille firmly and pull it
toward you.
2. Using a screwdriver or
adjustment screw(s) 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 adjustment screws and
rollers. This makes it easier to turn the screws.
To raise, turn the roller adjustment screw to the right.
To lower, turn the roller adjustment screw to the left.
NOTE: It may take several turns of the roller adjustment
screw to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.

B. Stabilizing foot
Style 2 - Front and rear leveling

3. Open the door again to make sure that it closes as easily as
you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by
turning both front adjustment screws to the right. It may take
several more turns, and you should turn both adjustment
screws the same amount.
4. Lower the stabilizing foot by turning it clockwise until it is
firmly against floor.
5. Turn the front adjustment screws counterclockwise to allow
the full weight of the refrigerator to rest on the stabilizing feet.

Water System Preparation

Please read before using the water system.
Immediately after installation, follow the steps below to make
sure that the water system is properly flushed.
1. Turn off the ice maker by opening the freezer door and lifting
up the wire shutoff arm as shown.
2. Install the interior water filter. The interior water filter mounting
bracket is located on the left side wall of the refrigerator
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
Remove blue bypass cap and retain for later use.
Remove the interior water filter from its packaging.
Remove the sealing label from the end of the filter and
insert it into the filter head.
Gently rotate the filter clockwise until it stops. Then snap
the filter cover closed.
3. Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding 2 to
3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Flushing the system will take
approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear air from the
line. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out
of the dispenser.
4. Inspect the filter system for water leaks. If you see water
leaks, see the "Troubleshooting" section.
5. Turn on the ice maker by opening the freezer door and
lowering the wire shutoff arm as shown. Please refer to the
"Ice Maker" section for further instructions on the operation
of your ice maker.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
Discard the first three batches of ice produced.
