System Startup:

Water supply does not need to be turned off, however, do not use ice and water dispenser while installing filter.

The filter cartridge has already been installed in the filter housing at the factory. Refer to the

How The Water Dispenser

M/orte section to properly fill the system with water.

Changing the Filter:

Water conditions vary throughout the world, but changing the water filter every
6 - 9 months normally will ensure the highest possible water quality. The Filter

Status light will turn red after approximately 400 gallons of water has flowed

through the ice and water dispenser. Also, if the filter has been in a refrigerator
that has not been in use for awhile (during moving for example), change the
filter before reinstalling the refrigerator. The dispenser system will also operate
without filtration (with filter cartridge removed and bypass installed).

To change filter:

It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.


Turn the ice maker’s power switch to the Off (“O”) position (See illustration
on page 14).


Push the

Filter Release Button,

located to the right of the filter cartridge,

to release the filter from the housing. To minimize the possibility of the
filter falling out of the housing during removal, it would be best to hold the
filter as it moves out toward you.

Pull the old filter cartridge straight out of the housing.


Discard the old filter.


Remove the new filter cartridge from the packaging and insert into the

filter housing the same way the old one came out.


When the cartridge is almost in, you will feel it stop against the clip assembly

in the back of the housing. The clip assembly holds the filter cartridge

firmly in place. At this point, you will need to push firmly until the cartridge
snaps fully in place. When completely in place, the front of the filter cartridge
will be flush with the front of the housing.


Turn the ice maker's power switch to the On (“I”) position.


Fill a glass with water. As you are doing this, check for leaks at the filter

housing. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes

the air out through the system and out the dispenser nozzle. This is normal.


After you have run one glass of water, continue to flush the system for
approximately 3 minutes to assure that the purest water possible is stored

in the water storage tank.
