Crisper Humidity Control (on some models)
You control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed crisper.
Depending on the produce you are storing, select the desired
Humidity Level.
Humidity Level - Min Setting
MIN (open) lets moist air out of the crisper for best storage of
fruits and vegetables with skins.
Fruit: Wash, let dry and store in refrigerator in plastic bag or
crisper. Do not wash or hull berries until they are ready to use.
Sort and keep berries in original container in crisper, or store in
a loosely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf.
Vegetables with skins: Place in plastic bag or plastic container
and store in crisper.
MAX (closed) keeps moist air in the crisper for best storage of
fresh, leafy vegetables.
Leafy vegetables: Wash in cold water, drain and trim or tear off
bruised and discolored areas. Place in plastic bag or plastic
container and store in crisper.

Ice Maker

(on some models - Accessory)
Turning the Ice Maker On/Off
NOTE: Do not force the wire shutoff arm up or down.
To turn the ice maker on, simply lower the wire shutoff arm.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is
made, the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin and the ice
cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up)
To manually turn off the ice maker, lift the wire shutoff arm to
the OFF (arm up) position and listen for the click to make sure
the ice maker will not continue to operate.
NOTE: Turn off the ice maker before removing the ice storage bin
to serve ice or to clean the bin. This will keep the ice cubes from
dropping out of the ice maker and into the freezer compartment.
After replacing the ice storage bin, turn on the ice maker.
Ice Production Rate
In normal operation, the ice maker should produce approximately
8 to 12 batches of ice in a 24-hour period.
If ice is not being made fast, enough adjust the controls.
Air Flow Control - Turn the control dial to the Max Freezer
Temperature Control - Turn the control dial gradually toward
the Max setting, waiting 24 hours between each increase.
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Allow 3 days
to completely fill the ice storage bin. Discard the first three
batches of ice produced.
The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
Do not store anything on top of the ice maker or in the ice
storage bin.
Your model may have some or all of these features.
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
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to match your
individual storage needs.
Storing similar food items together in your refrigerator and
adjusting the shelves to fit different heights of items will make
finding the exact item you want easier. It will also reduce the
amount of time the refrigerator door is open, and save energy.
Shelves and Glass Shelves (on some models)
To remove and replace a shelf:
1. Remove items from the shelf.
2. Slide the shelf straight out to the stop.
3. Depending on your model, lift back or front of the shelf past
the stop. Slide shelf out the rest of the way.
4. Replace the shelf by sliding the back of the shelf into the track
in the wall of the cabinet.
5. Guide the front of the shelf into the shelf track. Be sure to slide
the shelf in all the way.
