Crisper Removal

Unload the bottom shelf before attempting to remove the storage drawers.

To Remove:

Lift the drawers up slightly while pulling them past the stop location.

If the door prevents you from taking out the drawers, first try to remove the door bins. If this does not offer enough clearance, the refrigerator will need to be rolled forward until the door opens enough to slide the drawers out. In some cases, when you roll the refrigerator out, you will need to move the refrigerator to the left or right as you roll it out.

To remove the glass cover:

Remove the glass, then the frame. When replacing the glass, push the front edge firmly into the frame.

Push up the glass cover at the rear.

Removing the glass cover

Slide the glass cover backwards until the front edge comes out of the frame.

Rotate the side of the glass cover up.

Remove the glass cover.

To remove the frame:

Lift up the front of the frame using both hands.

Slide the frame forward.

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

Automatic Icemaker (on some models)

There are 2 types of icemakers:

The icemaker will produce approximately

3 to 31?2 lbs. of ice in a 24-hour period, depending on the freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other use conditions.

Power Light

Feeler Arm

Power switch model

If the refrigerator is operated before the water connection is made to the icemaker, set the power switch to O (off) or move the feeler arm to the STOP (up) position.

When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, set the power switch to the I (on) position or move the feeler arm to the ON (down) position. On power switch models, the green light will come on.

Feeler arm model

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 openings.

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 together.

On power switch models, the green power light will blink if ice cubes get stuck in the icemaker. To correct this, set the power switch to O (off) and remove the cubes.

Set the power switch to I (on) to restart the icemaker. After the icemaker has been turned on again, there will be a delay of about 45 minutes before the icemaker resumes operation.

Installation Instructions

Feeler Arm in

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

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.
