Water
Pressure
A
cold water
supply
with water pressure
of between
30
and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa)
is
required to operate
the
ice
maker. If
you have questions
about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified
plumber.
Reverse
Osmosis
Water
Supply
If a reverse osmosis water filtration
system
is connected
to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum
of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the ice maker is still not operating
properly:
Check to see whether
the sediment
filter in the reverse
osmosis
system is blocked.
Replace the filter if necessary.
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill
after heavy usage.
If you have questions
about your water
pressure, call a licensed,
qualified
plumber.
Before you move your refrigerator
into its final location,
it is
important
to make sure you have the proper
electrical
connection.
Recommended
Grounding
Method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only 15- or 20-amp
fused, grounded
electrical
supply
is required.
It is recommended
that a separate
circuit
serving only your refrigerator
be provided.
Use an outlet
that cannot
be turned
off by a switch.
Do not use an
extension
cord.
NOTE: Before performing
any type of installation,
cleaning,
or
removing
a light bulb, turn the control
(Thermostat,
Refrigerator
or Freezer Control
depending
on the model) OFF and then
disconnect
the refrigerator
from the electrical
source. When you
are finished,
reconnect
the refrigerator
to the electrical
source
and reset the control
(Thermostat,
Refrigerator
or Freezer Control
depending
on the model) to the desired setting.
See "Using the
Control."
Read all directions
before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
If you turn the refrigerator
on before the water line is
connected,
turn the ice maker OFE
All installations
must meet local plumbing
code requirements.
Use copper
tubing
and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household
temperatures
will remain
above freezing.
TOOLS NEEDED:
Flat-blade
screwdriver,
7/le"and 1/2"open-end
wrenches
or 2 adjustable
wrenches,
1/4"nut driver and drill bit,
cordless
drill. Gather the required tools and parts before starting
installation.
Read and follow the instructions
provided
with
any
tools listed.
NOTE: Your refrigerator
dealer has a kit available
with a %"
(6.35 mm) saddle-type
shutoff
valve, a union, and copper tubing.
Before purchasing,
make sure a saddle-type
valve complies
with
your local plumbing
codes.
Do not use a piercing-type
or 3/le"
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
easily.
Read all directions
before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
If you turn the refrigerator
on before the water line
is connected,
turn the ice maker OFE
Connect
to Water
Line
1.
Unplug refrigerator
or disconnect
power.
2.
Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet
long
enough to clear line of water.
3.
Locate
a 1/2"to 1V4"(1.27 cm to 3.18 cm) vertical
cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
4=
5=
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
Horizontal
pipe will work,
but drill on the top side of the
pipe, not the bottom.
This will help keep water away from
the drill and normal sediment
from collecting
in the valve.
Determine
the length of copper tubing you will need. Measure
from the connection
on lower left rear of refrigerator
to the
water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning.
Use 1/4"
(6.35 mm) O.D. (outside
diameter)
copper tubing.
Be sure
both ends of copper
tubing
are cut square.
Using a grounded
drill, drill a 1/4"hole in the cold water pipe
you have selected.

Fasten the shutoff
valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe
clamp.
Be sure the outlet end is solidly
in the 1/4"drilled hole
in the water pipe and that the washer
is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten the packing
nut. Tighten
the pipe clamp screws
slowly
and evenly so washer
makes a watertight
seal. Do not
overtighten
or you may crush the copper
tubing.
