Using your water dispenser – Ice & Water models

Before using your water dispenser

Ensure your ice and water system has been correctly installed by following the installation instructions booklet supplied.

To flush the water filtration system:

  • Ensure your refrigerator is switched on, and the isolation tap has been connected and turned on.
  • Run your water dispenser pad until water dispenses, this will displace trapped air in the water tank and filter system. This will take at least 2 minutes. Once water has dispensed, rest the dispenser pad for 2 minutes.
  • Dispense and discard 4 litres of water, then rest the dispenser pad for a further 2 minutes.
  • Dispense and discard a further 4 litres of water. Failure to do this will result in excessive dripping from your dispenser.
  • Please note, once installation is complete a few drips may appear out of the dispenser over the next few days to clear the remaining trapped air.
  • Ensure your refrigerator has cooled for at least 2 hours before use.

Water dispenser

You are now ready to enjoy water from your water dispenser.


  • Your water dispenser has been designed for one-handed operation.
  • To dispense water, gently press the dispensing pad using a glass or container.
  • To stop the flow of water, simply pull your glass away from the dispensing pad.
  • Please remember that pressing very hard against the dispensing pad will not encourage the dispenser to operate faster or produce greater quantities of water.

To avoid damage to property or personal injury do not put hands, fingers or objects up the dispenser opening.
