Water System Preparation

Please read before using the water system. Follow the directions
specific to your model.
Style 1 – Dispenser Models
IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, follow the steps below to make sure
that the water system is properly cleaned. This will flush air from
the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter
for use.
The On/Off switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
1. Open the freezer door and turn off the ice maker. Move the
switch to the OFF (right) setting as shown.
NOTE: If your model has a base grille filter system, make sure the
base grille filter is properly installed and the cap is in the horizontal
position.
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.
2. 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.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out
of the dispenser.
3. Open the freezer door and turn on the ice maker. Move the
switch to the ON (left) position.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
Discard the first three batches of ice produced.
Depending on your model, you may want to select the
maximum ice feature to increase the production of ice.
Style 2 – Non-Dispenser Models
IMPORTANT: After connecting the refrigerator to a water source
or replacing the water filter, fill and discard two full containers of
ice to prepare the water filter for use, before using the ice.
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.
1. Turn on the ice maker. Lower the wire shutoff arm as shown.
Please refer to "Ice Maker and Storage Bin" for further
instructions on the operation of your ice maker.
NOTES:
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.
Allow 3 days to completely fill ice container.
Depending on your model, you may want to select the
maximum ice feature to increase the production of ice.
NOTE: If your model has a base grille filter system, make sure the
base grille filter is properly installed and the cap is in the horizontal
position.
