Removing and Replacing Ice Storage Bin
Style 1
1. Pull the covering panel up from the bottom and then slide it
back toward the rear.
2. Lift the wire shutoff arm so it clicks into the OFF (up) position.
Ice can still be dispensed, but no more can be made.
3. Lift up the front of the storage bin and pull it out.
4. Replace the bin by pushing it in all the way or the dispenser
will not work. Push the wire shutoff arm down to the ON
position to restart ice production. Make sure the door is
closed tightly.
Style 2
1. Hold the base of the storage bin with both hands and press
the release button to lift the storage bin up and out.
NOTE: It is not necessary to turn the ice maker control to the
OFF (right) position when removing the storage bin. The
sensor cover ("flipper door") on the left wall of the freezer
stops the ice maker from producing ice if the door is open or
the storage bin is removed.
2. Replace the storage bin on the door and push down to make
sure it is securely in place.

Water Filtration System

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or
after the system.
Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. The light will change from green to yellow. This
tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is
recommended that you replace the water filter when the status
light changes to red OR water flow to your water dispenser or ice
maker decreases noticeably.
After changing the water filter, reset the water filter status light.
The status light will change from red to green when the system is
Non-indicator Water Filter (on some models)
If your refrigerator does not have the status light, you should
change the water filter every 6 months depending upon your
usage. If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker
decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed, replace the
water filter more often.
Using the Dispenser Without the Water Filter
You can run the dispenser without a water filter. Your water will not
be filtered.
1. Remove the water filter.
2. Slide the cap off the end of the filter and replace the cap in the
base grille.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.


Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost automatically.
However, clean both sections about once a month to prevent
odors from building up. Wipe up spills immediately.
IMPORTANT: Because air circulates between both sections, any
odors formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thoroughly clean both sections to eliminate odors. To prevent
odor transfer and drying out of food, wrap or cover foods tightly.
To Clean Your Refrigerator:
NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window
sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing
petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior
surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mild detergent in warm water.
3. Wash stainless steel and painted metal exteriors with a clean
sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm water.
4. There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal
home operating environments. If the environment is
particularly greasy or dusty, or there is significant pet traffic in
the home, the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to
3 months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
Remove the base grille.
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille,
the open areas behind the grille and the front surface area
of the condenser.
Replace the base grille when finished.
5. Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
