INTRODUCTION TO THE AUTOMATIC ICEMAKER

WARNING

Personal Injury Hazard
Avoid contact with the moving parts. DO NOT place fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in.

A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice.

LG-LK65C-6

The icemaker will produce 8 cubes per cycle, approximately 64-128 cubes in a 24 hour period, depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, how frequently refrigerator doors are opened, and other use conditions. If you wish to operate the refrigerator without connecting a water supply, set the icemaker switch to O (off). When the refrigerator has been connected to the water supply, set the switch to I (on). The icemaker will fill with water when it reaches the proper temperature. A newly installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to begin making ice cubes. Discard the first few batches of ice to allow the water line to clear. Be sure nothing interferes with the movement of the feeler arm. When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will stop producing ice. If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.

CARE

WHEN SHOULD YOU SET THE ICEMAKER SWITCH TO O (OFF)

  • When the ice storage bin is removed for more than a few minutes.
  • When the refrigerator will not be used for several days.
  • When the water supply will be shut off for several hours.

NORMAL SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR

  • During use, you may hear an occasional “buzzing” noise coming from the back of your refrigerator. This is normal and occurs when the water valve is turned on to allow water to fill the ice tray. If the refrigerator is not connected to a water supply, this noise will still occur and damage can result from operating the icemaker without having a water supply line installed. To avoid unnecessary operating noises, and avoid damaging the icemaker, locate the icemaker switch and place it in the O (off) position.
  • You may occasionally hear the sound of ice dropping into the ice bin, and running water during use as the icemaker refills.

WHEN YOU GO ON VACATION

Set the icemaker switch to the O (off) position, and shut off the water supply line to the refrigerator. If you anticipate that the temperature surrounding the refrigerator may drop below freezing, have a qualified plumber drain the water supply system to prevent property damage due to flooding from ruptured water lines or connections.
