Ice Maker and Ice Storage Bin
(on some models)
IMPORTANT: To avoid low ice production and poor quality ice,
flush the water system before turning on the ice maker. See
Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced. Allow 2 to 3 days for the
storage bin to fill completely following installation.
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.
If the ice in the storage bin clumps together, break up ice
using a plastic utensil and discard. Do not use anything sharp
to break up the ice. This can cause damage to the ice bin and
the dispenser mechanism.
Do not store anything in the ice storage bin.
Ice Production Rate
The ice maker should produce approximately 3 lbs (1.4 kg) of
ice per day under normal operation.
To increase ice production, select the increased ice
production feature from the Options menu on the control
panel. See “Using the Controls.”
Ice Maker in the Refrigerator (on some models)
The ice maker is located on the left-hand side of the refrigerator
compartment ceiling. Ice cubes are ejected into the ice storage
bin, located on the left-hand refrigerator door.
Turn the Ice Maker On/Off
1. Push up on the latch on the left-hand side of the ice
compartment to open the door.
2. Turn on the ice maker by moving the switch to the (left) ON
To manually turn off the ice maker, move the control to
the OFF (right) position.
Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The sensor will
automatically stop ice production if the storage bin is full,
if the door is open or the storage bin is removed. The
control will remain in the ON (left) position.
3. Close the ice compartment door.
Remove and Replace the Ice Storage Bin
Remove the ice storage bin by inserting your fingers into the
hole at the base of the bin and squeezing the latch to release
the bin from the compartment. Lift the storage bin up and pull
it straight out.
Replace the storage bin inside the ice compartment and push
down to make sure it is firmly in place.
Ice Maker in the Freezer (on some models)
Turn 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.
NOTE: Turn off the ice maker before removi
ng the ice storage bin
to serve ice or to clean the bin. This will keep the ice cubes from
dropping out of the ice maker and into the freezer compartment.
After replacing the ice storage bin, turn on the ice maker.
