INSTALLING
THE WATER LINE
{CONT.}
WHAT
YOU WILL
NEED (CONT.)
NOTE: The only
GE
approved
plastic
tubing
is that
supplied
in GE SmartConnect
T"
Refrigerator
Tubing
kits.
Do not use any other
plastic
water
supply
line because
the
line is
under
pressure
at all times.
Certain
types
of
plastic
will
crack
or rupture
with
age and cause
water
damage
to
your
home.
• AGE water
supply
kit
(containing
tubing,
shut-
off valve and fittings
listed below)is
available
at
extra
cost from
your
dealer
or from
Parts and
Accessories,
800.626.2002
(in Canada
1.888.261.3055).
• A cold water
supply.
The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. (1.4-8.1 bar).
• Power
drill.
• 1/2"
or adjustable
wrench.
• Straight
and
Phillips-blade
screwdriver.
• Two 1/4"
outer
diameter
compression
nuts
and
2 ferrules
(sleeves)--to
connect
the copper
tubing
to the shut-off
valve and the refrigerator
water
valve.
OR
• If you are using a GE SmartConnect
T"Refrigerator
Tubing
kit, the necessary
fittings
are
preassembled
to the tubing.
• If your
existing
copper
water
line has a flared
fitting
at the end, you will need an adapter
(available
at plumbing
supply
stores) to connect
the water
line to the refrigerator
OR you can cut
off the flared
fitting
with
a tube
cutter
and then
use a compression
fitting.
Do not cut formed
end
from GE SmartConnect'"
Refrigerator
tubing.
• Shut-off
valve to connect
to the cold water
line.
The shut-off
valve should have a water
inlet with a
minimum
inside diameter
of 5/32"
at the point of
connection
to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type
shut-off
valves are included
in many
water
supply
kits. Before purchasing,
make sure a saddle-type
valve complies
with
your
local plumbing
codes.
Install the shut-off
valve on the nearest
frequently
used drinking
water
line.
F_l SHUT OFF THE MAIN
WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest
faucet
long enough
to clear the line of water.
[2] CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION
Choose
a location
for the valve that
is easily
accessible.
It is best to connect
into the side of a
vertical
water
pipe. When
it is necessary
to
connect
into a horizontal
water
pipe, make the
connection
to the top or side, rather
than
at the
bottom,
to avoid drawing
off any sediment
from
the water
pipe.
E]
DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a 1/4"
hole in the water
pipe (even if using a
self-piercing
valve), using a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs
resulting
from
drilling
the hole in the
pipe.
Take care
not to
allow
water
to drain
into the
drill.
Failure to drill a 1/4"
hole may
result
in reduced
ice production
or smaller
cubes.
