How Long to Wait Before Adding Food to a New Refrigerator

How long to wait before adding food to a new Jenn-Air refrigerator


If your Jenn-Air refrigerator was 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

NOTE: 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
