About TurboCool. (on some models)

How it Works

Once activated, the compressor will turn on immediately and the fans will cycle on and off at high speed as needed for eight hours.

The compressor will continue to run until the refrigerator compartment cools to approximately 34F (1C), then it will cycle on and off to maintain this setting. After

8 hours, or if TurboCool is pressed again, the refrigerator compartment will return to the original setting.

How to Use

Press TurboCool. The TurboCool indicator light will come on; however, the refrigerator temperature display will still show the current setting.

After TurboCool is complete, the TurboCool indicator light will go out.

NOTES: The refrigerator temperature cannot be changed during


Consumer Support

TurboCool rapidly cools the refrigerator compartment in order to more quickly cool foods. Use TurboCool when adding a large amount of food to the refrigerator compartment, putting away foods after they have been sitting out at room temperature or when putting away warm leftovers. It can also be used if the refrigerator has been without power for an extended period.

Water Filter Cartridge

The water filter cartridge is located in the back upper right

corner of the refrigerator compartment.

When to Replace the Filter on Models With a

Replacement Indicator Light

There is a replacement indicator light for the water filter cartridge on the dispenser. This light will turn orange to tell you that you need to replace the filter soon.

Line up the arrow on the cartridge and the cartridge holder. Place the top of the new cartridge up inside the holder. Do not push it up into the holder.

Slowly turn it to the right until the filter cartridge stops.

DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. As you turn the cartridge, it will automatically raise itself into position. The cartridge will move about 1/2 turn.

The filter cartridge should be replaced when the replacement indicator light turns red or if the flow of water to the dispenser or icemaker decreases.

When to Replace the Filter on Models Without a

Replacement Indicator Light

The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or earlier if the flow of water to the water dispenser or icemaker decreases.

Run water from the dispenser for 3 minutes

(about 1-1/2 gallons) to clear the system and prevent sputtering.

Removing the Filter Cartridge

Press and hold the RESET WATER FILTER pad

(on some models) on the dispenser for 3 seconds.

If you are replacing the cartridge, first remove the old one by slowly turning it to the left. Do not pull down on the cartridge. A small amount of water may drip down.

NOTE: A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to spurt from the dispenser.

Installing the Filter Cartridge

If you are replacing a SmartWater cartridge with an adapter, the adapter must be removed before installing the cartridge. To remove the adapter, turn it to the left about 1/4 turn.

If you are replacing a Water by Culligan cartridge, leave the adapter in place. This adapter will stay in the refrigerator when you replace future cartridges.
