How long to wait before adding food to a new refrigerator

Has the Refrigerator been recently installed?

It is recommended that you allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to achieve full functionality.  

This allows time for the Refrigerator to achieve the following:

  • Correct Internal temperature 
  • Properly chilled water
  • First batches of ice production
    • Ice production will start once the Refrigerator is completely cool.  
    • The ice maker should produce a batch of cubes about every three hours and may initially take up to three days to fill the ice bin
