The temperature
control
is located
at the top of the refrigerator
compartment.
It controls
the temperature
in both the refrigerator
and freezer compartments.
For your convenience,
the Temperature
Control
is preset at the
factory. When you first install your refrigerator,
make sure that the
control
is still preset to the mid-setting
as shown.
NOTE: To turn your refrigerator
off, turn the refrigerator
control to
the word OFF or until the word OFF appears.
Your product
will
not cool when the refrigerator
control
is set to OFR

Give your refrigerator
time to cool down
completely
before
adding
food.
It is best to wait 24 hours
before you put food
into the refrigerator.
If you add food before the refrigerator
has cooled
completely,
your food may spoil. Adjusting
the Refrigerator
and Freezer
Controls
to a higher (colder) than recommended
setting will
not cool the compartments
any faster.
Adjusting Controls
The mid-setting
indicated
in the previous section
should
be
correct for normal household
usage. The controls
are set
correctly
when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when
ice
cream
is firm.
If the temperature
is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator
or
freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked.
If you need to adjust temperatures,
use the settings
listed in the
chart below as a guide. Wait at least 24 hours
between
adjustments
and then recheck
the temperatures.

Turning
the Ice Maker
On/Off
To turn the ice maker ON, simply
lower the wire shutoff
arm.
To manually
turn the ice maker OFF, lift the wire shutoff
arm to the
OFF (arm up) position
and listen for the click.
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) position.
Do not
force the wire shutoff
arm up or down.
Ice Production
Rate
Allow 24 hours to produce
the first batch of ice. Discard
the
first three batches
of ice produced.
The ice maker should produce
approximately
8 to 12 batches
of ice in a 24-hour
period.
To increase ice production,
lower the freezer and refrigerator
temperature.
See "Using the Control."
Wait 24 hours between
adjustments.
For maximum
ice production
(on some models),
push the
switch
to ICE PLUS. The ice maker should
produce
16 to
20 batches
of ice in a 24-hour
period in the Ice Plus mode.
Remember
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 maintained.
Do not use anything
sharp to break up the ice in the bin. This
can cause damage to the ice container
and the dispenser
mechanism.
Do not store anything
on top of or in the ice maker or ice bin.
