Ice Storage Bin Care
NOTE:
It is normal for ice to stick together
in the ice bin. It is
recommended
that the ice bin be emptied
and cleaned
as
needed.
To
clean the ice storage
bin:
1.
Slide the
ice
bin out of the freezer and lift up and out.
2.
Empty the ice bin. Use warm water to melt the ice if
necessary.
NOTE: 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.
3.
Wash ice bin with warm water and a mild detergent,
rinse well
and dry thoroughly.
Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or
solvents.
REMEMBER:
Allow 24 hours to produce
the first batch of ice.
It may take 3 to 4 days for the ice bin to completely
fill, if no
ice is used.
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.
It is normal for the ice cubes to be attached
at the corners.
They will break apart easily.
Do not store anything inside the ice bin.

Water
Filter Indicator
(on some
models)
The water filter indicator,
located
on the control
panel, will help
you know when to change the water filter.
A new water filter should
display a reading of 99%. The reading in
the display will decrease
as the filter life is used. A replacement
water filter should be ordered when "Order Filter" is displayed.
It is
recommended
that you replace the filter when "Change
Filter" is
displayed
or when water flow to your water dispenser
and/or ice
maker decreases
noticeably. See "Changing
the Water Filter" later
in this section.
