The Ice Dispenser
If the ice cubes are hollow or have an irregular shape, it could
be because of low water pressure. See the “Water Supply
Requirements” section.
Ice travels from the ice storage bin through the dispenser
chute to the dispenser. To turn off the ice maker, see the “Ice
Maker and Storage Bin” section.
The dispenser may continue to make noise and ice may
continue to dispense for several seconds after releasing the
dispenser button or paddle.
To Clean the Ice Dispenser Chute:
Humidity causes ice to naturally clump together. Ice particles can
build up until the ice dispenser chute becomes blocked.
If ice is not dispensed regularly, it may be necessary to empty the
ice storage bin and clean the ice delivery chute, the ice storage
bin, and the area beneath the storage bin every 2 weeks.
If necessary, remove the ice clogging the storage bin and
delivery chute using a plastic utensil.
Clean the ice delivery chute and the bottom of the ice storage
bin using a warm, damp cloth, and then dry thoroughly.
To Dispense Ice:
Paddle Dispensing
1. Select the desired type of ice by pressing CUBED ICE or
Cut Hazard
Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice.
Failure to do so can result in cuts.
2. Press a sturdy glass against the dispenser paddle. Hold the
glass close to the dispenser opening, so ice does not fall
outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to
the paddle to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will not
make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.
3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
NOTE: Ice may continue to dispense for several seconds after
removing the glass from the dispenser paddle. The dispenser
may continue to make noise for a few seconds after dispensing.
The Dispenser Drip Tray
There is an insert in the dispenser drip tray. The insert can be
removed from the drip tray to carry to the sink to empty or clean.

Ice Maker and Storage Bin
IMPORTANT: To avoid low ice production and poor quality ice,
ush the water system before turning on the ice maker. See
“Water Dispenser” section.
Following installation, allow 24 hours to produce the rst batch
of ice. Discard the rst 3 batches of ice produced. Allow 2 to 3
days to ll the ice storage bin.
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
