ICE AND WATER DISPENSER FEATURES The ice and water dispenser conveniently dispenses chilled water , and ice cubes or crushed ice , depending on the model . To operate the ice dispenser , select the ice option desired using the touchpad . Press a glass against the dispensing paddle as far up as possible to catch all ice . To stop dispensing ice , pull glass away from dispensing paddle . Do not remove the glass until the ice has completely dispensed . ( Complete instructions for the dispenser operation are attached to the inside of the freezer door . ) How the Water Dispenser Works The water tank , located behind the drawers in the refrigerator compartment , automatically fills as water is dispensed . For proper dispenser operation , the recommended supply water pressure should fall between 20 psi and 100 psi . After the refrigerator is connected to the water supply , fill the water tank by drawing one glass of water . It may take about 11 / 2minutes after activating the dispenser paddle before water begins to fill this first glass . Continue flushing the system for 3 minutes to rid the tank and plumbing connections of any impurities . The water dispenser has a built in shutoff device that will stop the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use . Simply release the dispenser paddle to reset the shutoff mechanism . How the Ice Dispenser Works The ice maker and container 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 begin making ice within 24 hours . Air in new plumbing lines may cause the ice maker to cycle two or three times before making a full tray of ice . To begin ice production , lower the wire signal arm to the " down " or ON position . With no usage it wilt take approximately 2 days to fill the ice container . The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container becomes full . To stop the ice maker , lift the wire signal arm until it clicks , and locks in the " up " or OFF position . Because of new plumbing connections , the first production of ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor . These should be discarded until the cubes made are free of discoloration and taste . ICE DISPENSER TIPS â¢ Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavor . Empty the ice container and ensure that the wire signal arm is in its " down " or ON position . The ice maker will then produce more ice . â¢ Occasionally shake the ice container to keep ice separated . â¢ Keep the wire signal arm in its " up " or OFF position until the refrigerator is connected to the water supply or whenever the water supply is turned off . If a large quantity of ice is needed at one time , it is best to remove cubes directly from the ice container . The following sounds are normal when the ice maker is operating : â¢ Motor running â¢ Running water â¢ Ice dropping into ice container â¢ Stop the ice maker when cleaning the freezer and during vacations . â¢ Water valve opening or closing â¢ If the ice maker will be turned off for a long period of time , turn the â¢ Ice loosening from tray water supply valve to the closed position . 13

FOOD STORAGEIDEAS Fresh Food Storage â¢ The fresh food compartment should be kept between 34 Â° F and 40 Â° F with an optimum temperature of 37 Â° F . â¢ Avoid overcrowding the refrigerator shelves . This reduces the circulation of air around the food and results in uneven cooling . Fruits and Vegetables â¢ Storage in the crisper drawers traps moisture to help preserve the fruit and vegetable quality for longer time periods . Meat â¢ Raw meat and poultry should be wrapped securely so leakage and contamination of other foods or surfaces does not occur . Frozen Food Storage â¢ The freezer compartment should be kept at 0 Â° F or lower . â¢ A freezer operates most efficiently when it is at least 2 / 3 full . Packaging Foods for Freezing â¢ To minimize dehydration and quality deterioration , use aluminum foil , freezer wrap , freezer bags or airtight containers . Force as much air out of the packages as possible and seal them tightly . Trapped air can cause food to dry out , change color , and develop an off - flavor ( freezer burn ) . â¢ Wrap fresh meats and poultry with suitable freezer wrap prior to freezing . â¢ Do not refreeze meat that has completely thawed . Loading the Freezer â¢ Avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer at one time . This overloads the freezer , slows the rate of freezing , and can raise the temperature of frozen foods . â¢ Leave a space between the packages , so cold air can circulate freely , allowing food to freeze as quickly as possible . â¢ Avoid storing hard - to - freeze foods such as ice cream and orange juice on the freezer door shelves . These foods are best stored in the freezer interior where the temperature varies less . ENERGY SAVING IDEAS â¢ Locate the refrigerator inthe coolest part of the room , out of direct sunlight , and away from heating ducts or registers . Do not place the refrigerator next to heat - producing appliances such as a range , oven , or dishwasher . If this is not possible , a section of cabinetry or an added layer of insulation between the two appliances will help the refrigerator operate more efficiently . â¢ Level the refrigerator so that the doors close tightly . â¢ Refer to this Use & Care Manual for the suggested temperature control settings . â¢ Periodic cleaning of the condenser will help the refrigerator run more efficiently . See the Care and Cleaning Chart on page 19 . â¢ Do not overcrowd the refrigerator or block cold air vents . Doing so causes the refrigerator to run longer and use more energy . â¢ Cover foods and wipe containers dry before placing them in the refrigerator . This cuts down on moisture build - up inside the unit . â¢ Organize the refrigerator to reduce door openings . Remove as many items as needed at one time and close the door as soon as possible . 17
