TOOLS NEEDED:
Flat-blade
screwdriver
%" Nut driver
7Ad'and 1/2"Open-end
or two
1/4"Drill bit
adjustable
wrenches
Cordless
drill
NOTE:
Your refrigerator
dealer has a kit available
with a 1/4"
(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 3/16"
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
easily.
IMPORTANT:
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.
Water Pressure
A cold water supply
with water pressure
of between
30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate
the water
dispenser
and ice maker. If you have questions
about
your water
pressure,
call a licensed,
qualified
plumber.
Reverse
Osmosis
Water
Supply
IMPORTANT:
The pressure
of the water supply
coming
out of a
reverse osmosis system
going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator
needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and
827 kPa).
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 water pressure
to the reverse osmosis
system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
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 your refrigerator
has a water filter, it may further
reduce the
water pressure
when used in conjunction
with a reverse
osmosis
system.
Remove the water filter. See "Water
Filtration
System."
If you have questions
about your water pressure,
call a licensed,
qualified
plumber.
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"(12.70 mm) to 11/4
'' (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 need. Measure
from the connection
on the lower rear corner 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 cordless
drill, drill a 1/4"(6.35 mm) hole in the cold
water pipe you have selected.

6.
Fasten the shutoff
valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe
clamp.
Be sure the outlet end is solidly
in the 1/4"(6.35 mm)
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 the washer
makes a watertight
seal. Do not overtighten
or you may crush the copper tubing.
7.
Slip the compression
sleeve and compression
nut on the
copper
tubing
as shown.
Insert the end of the tubing
into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw the compression
nut onto outlet end with
adjustable
wrench.
Do not
overtighten.
8.
Place the free end of the tubing
in a container
or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply.
Flush the tubing
until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff
valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper
tubing.
Connect
to Refrigerator
Style
1
1.
Unplug
refrigerator
or disconnect
power.
2.
Attach the copper
tube to the valve inlet using a compression
nut and sleeve as shown. Tighten the compression
nut. Do
not overtighten.
3.
Use the tube clamp on the back of the refrigerator
to secure
the tubing
to the refrigerator
as shown. This will help avoid
damage
to the tubing
when the refrigerator
is pushed back
against the wall.
