IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, or injury when using your refrigerator follow these basic safety precautions:

? This refrigerator must be properly installed and located in accordance with the Installation Instructions before it is

? Unplug the refrigerator before making repairs, replacing a light bulb, or cleaning.

Note: Power to the refrigerator cannot be disconnected by any setting on the control panel.

Note: Repairs must be performed by a qualified service professional.

? Replace all parts and panels before operating.

? Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

To reduce the risk of injury when using your refrigerator, follow these basic safety precautions.

? Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when they are cold. Glass shelves and covers may break if exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping or dropping. Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small pieces if it breaks.

? Keep fingers out of the pinch point areas; clearances between the doors and between the doors and cabinet are necessarily small. Be careful closing doors when children are in the area.

? Do not refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely.

? Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord. However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed (in the United

States) or a CSA certified (in Canada), 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.

? To prevent suffocation and entrapment hazards to children, remove the fresh food and freezer doors from any refrigerator before disposing of it or discontinuing its use.

? Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the door handles or the shelves in the refrigerator. They could seriously injure themselves.

? Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment when hands are damp or wet, skin may stick to these extremely cold surfaces.

? In refrigerators with automatic icemakers, avoid contact with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with the heating element that releases the cubes. Do no
