In selecting the style for your refrigerator, you should also consider its depth and the degree of customization you would like:
Your refrigerator will use one of the filter types below. To easily find which one you need, look in your user manual or on the label of the filter itself. When replacing the water filter, please be sure to order the same model to ensure the right fit for your refrigerator.
The PureAir Ultra® air filter eliminates odors for a fresher interior.
Smudge-Proof™ is a protective coating that is applied directly to the stainless steel appliance that resists fingerprints and cleans easily, making it effortless to keep your kitchen looking beautiful.
First, start by checking to make sure that your icemaker is turned on. How you do this will depend on your unit and the type of icemaker it has:
If your refrigerator is newly installed, check that the water valve located behind it is in the open position.
If your refrigerator was not recently installed, your water filter (if it has one) may need to be replaced – there’s a chance it could be clogged.You can order a new filter online or visit your nearest authorized dealer.
You can also try removing and reinstalling the water filter – if your refrigerator has one – making sure that it clicks securely into place.
Your icemaker is designed to be completely automatic, and will stop making ice when the bin is full. Generally, it will produce enough to keep the bin completely full – not too much ice, and not too little. If you have too much ice, however, you can always turn the icemaker off.
How you turn off the icemaker will depend on your unit and the icemaker type:
Moisture can develop when there’s high humidity, or if the refrigerator has been opened several times in a short period. The moisture should go away when conditions and use return to normal.
You should also check to be sure your refrigerator doors are closing completely. If the doors are open even slightly, warmer air from the room will enter the refrigerator and cause moisture to develop. The door should require a slight tug to open; if it doesn’t, check to see if any items on your refrigerator shelves might be preventing it from closing.
The Quick Ice™ or Quick Freeze™ option may be activated. Both of these options use a very low freezer temperature while activated. You can tell when one of them is running because the option light on the dispenser will be lit.
Today’s refrigerators are designed to be more energy efficient than previous models. This means that they run longer cycles (or run continuously) to maintain an even temperature inside with a minimum number of start-ups, since starting a unit takes about 10 times as much energy as it does to keep it running.
These are early warnings built into the refrigerator’s electronics to notify you about a potential issue earlier than you would otherwise have known about it.
When electric service returns after a power outage, the refrigerator will immediately start cooling and will automatically return to factory temperature settings. Its display will read “HI” until it has reached normal safe operating temperatures. Once the temperature is below 55°F, the exact temperature will be displayed. Please allow 24 hours for temperatures to stabilize.
You can find door adjustment instructions in your owner’s manual or in the product manual section of this website.
To keep the interior of your refrigerator fresh, follow these steps:
Products that are ENERGY STAR® qualified are equivalent to or better than standard products, with one important difference: they use less energy. To learn the ENERGY STAR® rating, products must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the U.S. Department of Energy. Because they use less energy, these products save money on your electricity bill and help protect the environment by reducing harmful emissions from power plants. Plus, you get all of the features and quality you expect.

When shopping for an appliance, it's easy to recognize the ENERGY STAR® label that identifies qualified products. This label means that the product passed stringent standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy. Additionally, manufacturers are required to display their products' test results on the ENERGY STAR® label. The label will tell you about the product's efficiency level, including approximately how much energy the appliance uses, its average annual operating cost, and how its energy use compares with that of similar products.
