  • Ensure the water filtration system has been flushed.

To flush the water filtration system

When using your water dispenser for the first time, run the dispenser pad until water dispenses, this will displace trapped air in the water tank and filter system. Rest the dispenser pad for 2 minutes.

Dispense and discard 4 litres of water, then rest the dispenser pad for a further 2 minutes, repeat process.

Failure to do this will result in excessive dripping from your water dispenser.


DO NOT continuously dispense water for longer than 2 minutes at a time.

  • Ensure a manual ice maker cycle has been forced. Press and hold 1212.png, plus.png and minus.png for 4 seconds on the internal control panel, then close the refrigerator compartment door. The ice tray will flip twice. Empty the water from the bin, then dry and replace.
  • Ensure ice maker is turned on. Press button once on the internal control panel. This light above the button will illuminate indicating ice maker is on. Please discard the first 3 harvests of ice (8 cubes per harvest).
