Installation

To avoid severe personal injury or death,
observe the following:

• Disconnect power to refrigerator before removing

doors. Connect power only after replacing doors.

• Green ground wire must be attached to top hinge

while performing door removal and replacement.

• Tape decorative panels (select models) securely

into place before removing door handles.

WARNING

To avoid property damage, observe the following:

• Protect vinyl or other flooring with cardboard, rugs

or other protective material prior to moving
refrigerator.

• Do not adjust refrigerator to be any shorter than

68

1

2

” tall (minus hinge and cap). Doing so may

damage underside components.

CAUTION

Location

• Do not install refrigerator near oven, radiator or

other heat source. If not possible, shield refrigerator
with cabinet material.

• Do not install where temperature falls below 55° F

(13° C) or rises above 110° F (43° C). Malfunction
may occur at this temperature.

• Refrigerator is designed for indoor household

application only.

Measuring the Opening

When installing your refrigerator, allow 

1

2

” space at top

and 

1

2

” space behind machine compartment cover

(located in the rear) for proper air circulation. If the
refrigerator is placed with the door hinge side against
a wall, you may want to allow additional space so the
door can be opened wider.

Subflooring or floor coverings (i.e. carpet, tile, wood
floors, rugs) may make your opening smaller than
anticipated.

Some clearance may be gained by using the leveling
procedure under Leveling.

Important: If refrigerator is to be installed into a
recess where the top of the refrigerator is completely
covered, use dimensions from floor to top of hinge cap
to verify proper clearance.

Transporting Your Refrigerator

• NEVER transport refrigerator on its side. If an

upright position is not possible, lay refrigerator on its
back. Allow refrigerator to sit upright for
approximately 30 minutes before plugging it in to
assure oil returns to the compressor. Plugging
refrigerator in immediately may cause damage to
internal parts.

• Use an appliance dolly when moving refrigerator.

ALWAYS truck refrigerator from its side or
back–NEVER from its front.

• Protect outside finish of refrigerator during transport

by wrapping cabinet in blankets or inserting padding
between the refrigerator and dolly.

• Secure refrigerator to dolly firmly with straps or

bungee cords. Thread straps through handles when
possible. Do not over-tighten. Over-tightening
restraints may dent or damage outside finish.

Door and Hinge Removal

Some installations require door removal to get
refrigerator to final location.

1. Unplug power cord from power source.

2. Remove toe grille (see page 4).

• Open both doors 180°, or as wide as possible.

• If tube end is damaged, cut off

” before

reconnecting.

• If leaking occurs, reconnect the line.

• Pull the door-side tube from the connector (B).

To Reconnect the Water Line:

• Firmly push tube

lines on the tube as a guide for full insertion.
