Selecting the best location for the refrigerator
- A location with easy access to a water supply.
- A location without direct exposure to sunlight.
- A location with a level floor.
- A location with enough space for the refrigerator doors to open easily.
- A location that allows sufficient space to the right, left, back and top for air circulation.
- A location that allows you to move the refrigerator easily if it needs maintenance or service.
- Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will go below 50 oF (10 oC).
- Do not locate the refrigerator where it may become wet.
When moving your refrigerator
To prevent floor damage, be sure the front adjusting legs are in the up position (above the floor). Refer to ‘Adjusting the Level’ in the manual (on page 10).
For proper installation, you must place this refrigerator on a level, hard surface that is the same height as the rest of the floor. This surface should be strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator, or approximately 335lbs (152kg). To protect the finish of the flooring, cut a large section of the cardboard carton and place it under the refrigerator where you are working. When moving the refrigerator, you need to pull and push it straight forwards or back. Do not wiggle it from side to side.
Removing The Refrigerator Doors
For some installations you need to remove the fridge and freezer drawers so you can move the refrigerator to its final location. Do not remove the doors/drawer if you don’t need to. If you do not need to remove the refrigerator doors, go to Adjusting the Level on page 10. If you need to remove the doors. continue below. Before removing the door/drawer, make sure you read the following items:
- Disconnect power to the refrigerator before removing the door or drawer.
- Be careful not to drop, damage or scratch the door/drawer while removing them. Use care when you remove the doors/drawer. The doors are heavy and you could injure yourself.
- Reattach the doors/drawer properly to avoid:
- Moisture from air leakage.
- Uneven door alignment.
- Wasting energy due to improper door seal.
- The refrigerator does not work at all or it does not chill sufficiently.
- Check if the power plug is properly connected.
- Check if the set temperature on the digital display is warmer than the freezer or fridge inner temperature. If it is, set the refrigerator colder.
- Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
- Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation?
- The food in the fridge is frozen.
- Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low.
- Try setting the refrigerator to a warmer temperature.
- Is the temperature in the room too low? Set the refrigerator warmer.
- Did you store the food which is juicy in the coldest part of the refrigerator? Try moving those items to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping them in the colder areas or bins.
- You hear unusual noise or sounds.
- Check if the refrigerator is level and stable.
- Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation? Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 2 inches from the wall.
- Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
- A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. This is normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
- If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity.
- The cabinet-door sealing area of the appliance is hot and condensation is occurring.
- Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical hinged section of the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
- Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the door open for a long time.
- Ice Maker is not producing ice.
- Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before making ice?
- Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened?
- Did you manually stop the ice making function?
- Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature lower.
