 Refrigerator or Freezer Not Cooling?

It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. | Use an outlet that cannot be turned off by a switch. | Do not use an extension cord.
 
Dispenser water is not cool enough?
If your refrigerator was recently installed, allow 24 hours for the water supply to completely cool. The water is chilled in the refrigerator compartment, so the water won’t cool until the compartment is cool. If you recently dispensed a large amount of water, it could take several hours for the water that refills the reservoir to completely cool.
 
Too cold/Freezing in Fresh Food Section – French Door Refrigerator with Exterior Dispenser?
1. If items in the fresh food section of your refrigerator are freezing and the refrigerator is not hooked up to a water supply, then check to make sure the ice maker is turned Off. If the ice maker is turned on then it will continue to try to make ice without any water, which can make the fresh food section too cold. To turn the ice maker Off, press the switch located on the front or side of the ice maker to the Off position. See Water supply hookup – French door exterior dispenser.
 
Too cold in fresh food compartment? French Door with ice bin in the door?
If items in the fresh food section of your refrigerator are freezing and the refrigerator is not hooked up to a water supply, then check to make sure the ice maker is turned off. If the ice maker is turned on then it will continue to try to make ice without any water, which can make the fresh food section too cold. Turn off the ice maker by selecting the Options menu on the display panel, Then choose Ice Maker.
 
The ice maker on my upright freezer is not producing ice or not enough ice?
Once your freezer is cooled, the ice maker should produce 70-120 cubes every 24 hours. Is the freezer temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours after hookup for ice production. See "Using the control" below.
 
Why does my unit chime when the display is not in use? French Door with Ice bin in door?
The Door Ajar Alarm feature sounds an alarm when the refrigerator or freezer doors are open for 5 minutes and the product cooling is turned on. The alarm will repeat every 2 minutes. Play audio of chime (3seconds) Close all doors to turn it off.
 
My freezer will not operate?
The middle setting (typically "4") is designed to maintain the temperature at or near 0°F (-17.8°C) under normal operating conditions. Allow the freezer to cool six to eight hours before filling with frozen food. Let the freezer cool overnight before adding large amounts of unfrozen food.
 
Ice droplets in the freezer compartment? Side by side with Ice Bin in Door, Flush Mounted Dispenser with LCD Display?
During months of high humidity (especially if a home is not air-conditioned), it is normal for some sweating or moisture to build up inside the freezer when the room air is humid. NOTE: Temperature sensors placed close to the front of the refrigerator help ensure that food stays cold, no matter where the food is placed. Make sure that the air vents between the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not blocked.
 
No lights inside refrigerator? Side by side refrigerator?
If the refrigerator is getting power, the refrigerator compartment light should come on when the door is open. If the refrigerator compartment light does not come on and the refrigerator does not appear to be cooling, check the following. Make sure the refrigerator is plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
 
How much ice should the ice maker in my upright freezer make in a 24-hour period?
The ice maker should produce approximately seven to nine batches of ice in a 24-hour period. If ice is not being made fast enough, turn the Temperature Control toward a higher (colder) number in half-number steps. (For example, if the control is at 3, move it to between 3 and 4.) Wait 24 hours and, if necessary, gradually turn the Temperature Control to the highest setting; wait 24 hours between each increase.
