TOOLS NEEDED:
Flat-blade
screwdriver
1/4"Drill bit
7/16"and 1/2"Open-end
or two
adjustable
wrenches
Hand drill or electric drill
(properly grounded)
1/4"nut driver
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 ¾e"
(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 OFF.
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.

Locate
a 1/2"(12.70 mm) to 11¼
'' (3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
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 grounded
drill, drill a 1/4"(6.35 mm) hole in the cold
water pipe you have selected.
A. Cold water pipe
E. Compression sleeve
B. Pipe clamp
F. Shutoff valve
C. Copper tubing
G.Packing nut
D. Compression nut
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 prevent
damage
to the tubing
when the refrigerator
is pushed back
against the wall.
4.
Turn shutoff valve ON.
5.
Check for leaks. Tighten
any connections
(including
connections
at the valve) or nuts that leak.
