Troubleshooting Tips

Once the desired temperature has been set, the temperature display will return to the actual refrigerator and freezer temperatures after 5 seconds. Several adjustments may be required.

Each time you adjust controls, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the temperature you have set.

To turn the cooling system off, tap the WARMER pad for either the refrigerator or the freezer until the display shows OFF. To turn the unit back on, press the

COLDER pad for either the refrigerator or freezer.

The SET light will illuminate on the side you selected. Then press the COLDER pad again (on the side where the SET light is illuminated) and it will go to the preset points of 0F for the freezer and

37F for the refrigerator. Setting either or both controls to OFF stops cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments, but does not shut off electrical power to the refrigerator.

Installation Instructions

To change the temperature, press and release the

WARMER or COLDER pad. The SET light will come on and the display will show the set temperature.

To change the temperature, tap either the

WARMER or COLDER pad until the desired temperature is displayed. Refrigerator temperatures can be adjusted between 34F and 44F and the freezer temperatures can be adjusted between

6F and +6F.

Operating Instructions

The temperature controls are preset in the factory at 37F for the refrigerator compartment and 0F for the freezer compartment.

Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize to the preset recommended settings.

The temperature controls can display both the SET temperature as well as the actual temperature in the refrigerator and freezer.

The actual temperature may vary slightly from the SET temperature based on usage and operating environment.

Setting either or both controls to OFF stops cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments, but does not shut off electrical power to the refrigerator.

NOTE: The refrigerator is shipped with protective film covering the temperature controls. If this film was not removed during installation, remove it now.

Water Filter Cartridge

The water filter cartridge is located inside the cartridge holder in the back upper right corner of the refrigerator compartment.

When to Replace the Filter

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

Installing the Filter Cartridge

Installation Instructions

If you are replacing the cartridge, first remove the old one. To open the cartridge cover, push in where indicated and the cover will drop down.

Remove the cartridge by slowly rotating it to the left. A small amount of water may drip down.

If air has been trapped in the system, the filter cartridge may be ejected as it is removed. Use caution when removing.

Mark your calendar to remind you to replace the filter cartridge in six months.

Troubleshooting Tips

Remove the protective foil from the end of the cartridge.

Position the cartridge inside the cartridge holder and slowly rotate the cartridge to the right until it stops.

When the cartridge is properly installed, you will feel it click as it locks into place. The blade on the end of the cartridge should be positioned vertically. Do not overtighten.

Close the cartridge cover.
