For Automatic Ice only models:
Flushing must be completed through the ice maker.

Flushing through water dispenser

  1. Press the water dispenser pad to dispense 1 gal (4L) of water. A harmless carbon residue may be dispensed with water during the flushing process.
  2. Wait for 4 minutes before dispensing again.
  3. Dispense 1 gal (4L) of water then wait another four minutes.
  4. Dispense another 1 gal (4L) of water. Your water dispenser is ready for use.
  5. Water will continue to drip from the dispenser for a few more days after installation to clear remaining trapped air in the dispenser. Check the drip tray regularly and empty when required.

Safety and Warning

IMPORTANT!

  • The water connection to your ice & water refrigerator must be installed by an qualified plumber or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician and comply with all state and local laws.
  • Installation and use MUST comply with all state and local plumbing codes. Check with your local public works department for plumbing codes. You must follow their guidelines as you install the water filtration system.
  • To avoid serious illness or death, only connect your water filter to safe drinking water.
  • The water filter cartridge needs to be changed when the replacement indicator icon illuminates. This will happen every 6 months.
  • If the water filtration system has been allowed to freeze, replace filter cartridge. Failure to replace the disposable filter at recommended intervals may lead to reduced filter performance and failure of the filter, causing property damage from water leakage or flooding.
  • In cases of excessively reduced filter life — we recommend that you consult a local plumber or your water supplier for advice on suitable filtration requirements for the water supplied to your home.
  • Filter replacement is the consumer's responsibility and will not be covered by the warranty except in the case of faulty parts or materials within the filter cartridge.
  • If the water has not created ice for some time or ice has an unpleasant taste or odor dispose of ice and refer to the flushing instructions in this book. If unpleasant taste or odor persists, you may wish to fit a new filter cartridge.
  • Your water filtration system can withstand up to 120psi (827kPa) of water pressure. Ensure the supplied pressure reducing valve is installed before installing the water filtration system. DO NOT install if water pressure exceeds 120psi (827kPa). To reduce the risk associated with property damage due to water leakage or flooding:
  • DO NOT install systems in areas where ambient temperatures may go above 100°F (38°C) or drop below 33°F (0.6°C).
  • DO NOT install on hot water supply lines. The maximum operating water temperature of this filter system is 100°F (38°C).
  • DO NOT install where water hammer conditions may occur. If water hammer conditions exist, you must install a water hammer arrester.
