Priming
the water
supply
Your refrigerator's
water supply system
includes
several tubing lines, an advanced
water filter,
a distribution
valve bank, and a reserve
tank to
ensure ample
supply to the ice and water dispenser
at all times. This system
needs to be completely
filled with water when first connected
to an external
supply line.
CAUTION
For
proper dispenser
operation,
recommended
water
supply
pressure
should
fall
between
30 psi
and
100
psi.
Excessive
pressure
may cause
water
filter
to
malfunction.
To prime
the
water supply system:
1
Begin filling the tank by pressing
and holding
a drinking glass against the water dispenser
paddle.
2
Keep the glass in this position
until water
comes out of the dispenser.
It may take
about
11/2minutes.
Continue
dispensing
water for about three
minutes to flush the system
and plumbing
connections
of any impurities
(stopping
to
empty the glass as necessary).
NOTE
The water dispenser
has a built-in device that
shuts off the water flow after three minutes of
continuous
use. To reset this shutoff device,
simply release the dispenser
paddle.
ice
maker
operation
&
care
The ice maker, ice bin, and dispenser
feeding
mechanism
are located in the top of the freezer
compartment.
After the refrigerator
is installed
properly and has cooled for several hours, the
ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. It can
completely
fill an ice bin in about two days.
The ice maker produces
four to six pounds of ice
every 24 hours depending
on usage conditions.
Ice
is produced at a rate of eight cubes every 75 to 90
minutes.
Using
the
ice
maker
after
installation
Before making ice for the first time, be sure to
prime the water supply
system. Air in new plumbing
lines can result in two or three empty ice maker
cycles. Furthermore,
if the system
is not flushed,
the first ice cubes may be discolored
or have an
odd flavor.
IMPORTANT
'four ice maker is turned on at the factory so it
can work as soon as you install your refrigerator.
If you cannot connect
a water supply, turn the
ice maker's On/Off switch to Off. Otherwise,
the
ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering
noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Turning
the
ice
maker
on
and
off
Ice production
is controlled
by the ice maker's On/
Off power switch. To gain access to the ice maker,
pull the extra shelf out (some models).
Press the
switch to the "0" position
to turn it Off and press to
the 'T' position to turn it On.
NOTE
The ice maker also has a built-in wire signal arm,
which automatically
stops ice production
when
the ice bin is full.This
signal arm should not be
used to manually
stop the ice maker.
