Setting up your refrigerator

Before using your refrigerator

  • Remove the interior packing.
  • Let your refrigerator stand upright for approximately four hours before connecting it to power. This reduces the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from improper handling during transportation.
  • Wash the inside with a damp warm cloth soaked in a solution of one quart of lukewarm water to two tablespoons of baking soda.
  • Wait for approximately two hours after moving your refrigerator or plugging it in for the first time so that the coolant fluid settles.
  • For correct operation, you should level your refrigerator using the leveling feet. If you do not level your refrigerator, the doors may not close or seal correctly, causing cooling, frost, and moisture problems. Turn the leveling feet clockwise to raise or counterclockwise to lower a side. The leveling feet are easier to adjust if you have someone push against the top of your refrigerator to take some weight off.
  • When moving your refrigerator, do not tilt it beyond 45° from upright.

Finding a suitable location

  • Place your refrigerator on a floor that is strong enough to support your refrigerator when it is fully loaded.
  • Do not install your refrigerator on carpeting or a rug.
  • Your refrigerator is designed to be free-standing and should not be recessed or built-in.
  • If you use your refrigerator in a garage, make sure that the ambient temperature is between 50°F (10°C) and 109 °F (43 °C).
  • Adjust the feet to keep your refrigerator level.
  • If you locate your refrigerator next to a fixed wall, allow sufficient space on the hinge side for the door to swing open.
  • Position your refrigerator away from direct sunlight and sources of heat, such as a stove, heater, or radiator. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extremely cold temperatures may also prevent your refrigerator from performing correctly.
  • Avoid locating your refrigerator in moist areas.

Your refrigerator is designed to operate in a temperature range of 50° F (10° C) and 109° F (43° C). If you operate your refrigerator outside this temperature range, your refrigerator may not work correctly.

Providing correct ventilation
Your refrigerator needs at least 0.5″ (1.3 cm) between it and the surrounding side walls, at least 3.9″ (10 cm) between it and the ceiling, and at least 2″ (5.1 cm) between it and the back wall.

Insignia NS-RFD21CISS0 French Door Refrigerator 4

Providing room for doors to open
Make sure that you have enough room in front of your refrigerator to swing the doors open.

Insignia NS-RFD21CISS0 French Door Refrigerator 5

Providing the correct power source
Check your power outlet. Your refrigerator requires a 115 V, 60 Hz power supply.

WARNINGS:
Make sure that:

  • The power outlet accepts a 3-prong grounding plug. The third prong on the power cord plug grounds your refrigerator to minimize the possibility of electric shock. Do not modify the power plug.
  • You DO NOT plug anything else into the same power outlet as your refrigerator. You may overload the circuit which can cause a fire.
  • You DO NOT use an extension cord. If your refrigerator is too far from the power outlet, move your refrigerator or have an electrician install an outlet closer to your refrigerator.
  • The power outlet cannot be turned off with a switch or pull string.

Leveling your refrigerator
Leveling your refrigerator is important. If you do not level your refrigerator during installation, the doors may not close or seal correctly which can cause cooling, frost, or moisture problems.

Connecting the water supply

Your refrigerator comes with a water dispenser and an ice maker. To use these features, you need to connect your refrigerator to a drinking (potable) water supply. For the ice maker to operate correctly, the water pressure needs to be between 30 and 125 psi.

Note:
If you install your refrigerator in an area with low water pressure (below 30 psi), you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.

CAUTIONS:
Make sure that you:

  • Use the tubing that came with your refrigerator and the water line installation kit. Do not use old tubing.
  • Connect to the cold water pipe. If you connect to the hot water pipe, the purifier may malfunction.
  • Do not contaminate the water pipes during installation.

Operating Notices

  • Do not use water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after using the filtration system.
  • Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts.
  • For cold water only.
  • Replace the filter every 6 months.
  • Testing was performed under standard laboratory conditions, actual performance may vary.
  • Check for compliance with the state and local laws and regulations.
  • Systems must be installed and operated according to the manufacturer’s recommended procedures and guidelines.
  • Spent adsorption media will not be regenerated and used.

Storing your refrigerator

  1. Unplug your refrigerator from the power outlet.
  2. Remove all food.
  3. Clean your refrigerator.
  4. Take off the doors, and leave the shelves in place so that children cannot easily climb inside.
