cost of an unnecessary service call.

Your refrigerator will not operate

Is the power supply cord unplugged?

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Has a household fuse or circuit breaker tripped?

Replace the fuse or reset the circuit.

Is the refrigerator or freezer control turned to the OFF
position?

Refer to the “Setting the Controls” section.

Is the refrigerator defrosting?

Recheck to see if the refrigerator is operating in 30 minutes.

Your refrigerator will regularly run an automatic defrost cycle.

Are the doors not closed completely?

Push the doors firmly shut. If they will not shut all the way, see
“The doors will not close completely” later in this section.

Are the condenser coils dirty?

This prevents air transfer and makes the motor work harder.
Clean the condenser coils. Refer to the “Cleaning Your

Refrigerator” section.

Are the door gaskets not sealed all the way around?

Contact a qualified person or a technician.

NOTE:

If the problem is not due to any of the above,

remember that your new refrigerator will run longer than your
old one due to its high efficiency motor.

The refrigerator seems to make too much noise

The sounds may be normal for your refrigerator.

Refer to the “Understanding Sounds You May Hear” section.

The ice maker is not producing ice

Hie lights do not work

Is the power supply cord unplugged?

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Is a light bulb loose in the socket?

Turn the refrigerator or freezer control to OFF. Disconnect the

refrigerator from the electrical supply. Gently remove the bulb
and reinsert. Then reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical
supply and reset the control.

Is a light bulb burned out?

Replace with an appliance bulb of the same wattage, size,
and shape. See the “Changing the Light Bulbs” section.

Hiere is water in the defrost drain pan

Is the refrigerator defrosting?

The water will evaporate. It is normal for water to drip into the

defrost pan.

Is it more humid than normal?

Expect that the water in the defrost pan will take longer to
evaporate. This is normal when it is hot or humid.

TTie motor seems to run too much

Is the room temperature hotter than normal?

Expect the motor to run longer under warm conditions. At
normal room temperatures, expect your motor to run about
40% to 80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it

to run even more of the time.

Has a large amount of food just been added to the
refrigerator?

Adding a large amount of food warms the refrigerator. It is

normal for the motor to run longer in order to cool the
refrigerator back down.

Is the door opened often?

Expect the motor to run longer when this occurs. In order to
conserve energy, try to get everything you need out of the
refrigerator at once, keep food organized so it is easy to find,
and close the door as soon as the food is removed.

Are the controls not set correctly for the surrounding

conditions?

Lower wire shut-off arm to the ON (wire shut-off arm down)

some models)?

Maker and Storage Bin/Bucket” section.

turned on?

Turn on the water valve. See the “Connecting the Refrigerator

freezer interior. While depressing the sensor door, lift the ice
maker service door and remove the ice from the ejector with
a plastic utensil. Refer to the “Ice Maker and Storage Bin/

Bucket” section.

Check to see if your refrigerator has been connected to your

home water supply and the supply shut-off valve is turned on.
Refer to the “Connecting the Refrigerator to a Water Source”

section.

NOTE:

If not due to any of the above, there may be a problem

with the water line. Call for service.

The ice maker is producing too little ice

Walt 72 hours for full ice production to begin. Once your
refrigerator is cooled down, the ice maker should begin

producing 70 to 120 cubes every 24 hours.

Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
