About the automatic icemaker.

A newly-installed refrigerator may take 1224 hours to begin making ice.

Automatic Icemaker (on some models)

The icemaker will produce approximately 3 to

312 lbs. of ice in a 24-hour period, depending on the freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other use conditions.

Feeler Arm in the STOP

Feeler Arm in (up) position the ON (down)

If the refrigerator is operated before the water connection is made to the icemaker, move the feeler arm to the STOP (up) position.

When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, move the feeler arm to the

ON (down) position.

The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to

15F. A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes.

Once the icemaker starts to make ice, it may take up to 48 hours to fill the bin, depending on the temperature settings and number of door

Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water line to clear.

Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler arm.

When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice.

It is normal for several cubes to be joined

If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become cloudy, taste stale, shrink or fuse

NOTE: In homes with lower-than-average water pressure, you may hear the icemaker cycle multiple times when making one batch of ice.

You will hear a buzzing sound each time the icemaker fills with water.

Icemaker Accessory Kit

If your refrigerator did not already come equipped with an automatic icemaker, an icemaker accessory kit is available at extra cost.

This refrigerator will accept accessory icemaker accessory kit IM4B.

Care and cleaning of the refrigerator.

Cleaning the Outside

The door handles and trim. Clean with a cloth dampened with soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth.

Keep the outside clean. Wipe with a clean cloth lightly dampened with kitchen appliance wax or mild liquid dish detergent. Dry and polish with a clean, soft cloth.

The stainless steel panels and door handles

(on some models) can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner.

Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel.

Do not wipe the refrigerator with a soiled dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave a residue that can erode the paint. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners containing bleach because these products can scratch and weaken the paint finish.

Cleaning the Inside
