If you choose to turn off the refrigerator before you leave:
- Turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least one day ahead of time.
- When the last load of ice drops, raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (up) position or press the switch to OFF, depending on your model.
How to Properly Prepare for Vacation
Preparing your KitchenAid undercounter refrigerator or wine cooler for vacation is simple and helps protect your refrigerator while you are away.
Your refrigerator drawers are equipped with the Holiday Mode feature. By selecting this feature, the temperature set points remain unchanged and the interior lights will turn off. For most efficient refrigerator drawers operation, it is recommended to exit the Holiday Mode when it is no longer required.
Models KBSN602E KBSD602E KBSD606E KBSN608E KBSD608E KBSD612E KBSD618E
These models have a dedicated Cooling On/Off button to turn on the cooling function or turn it off. Press this button on the control panel until the cooling function goes off. Once it is off, the refrigerator enters the demo or showroom mode. Press the button again until the cooling function comes on again.
This list covers many KitchenAid refrigerator models, but you may not find yours here. If that is the case, check your user manual for instructions to enter or exit the demo or showroom mode. If the manual is no longer available, contact the KitchenAid Service Center for assistance.
