Water
Pressure
A cold water supply
with water pressure
of between
30 and
120 psi (207-827
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 - 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.
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
NOTE: On kit models,
assemble
water valve to refrigerator
per kit
instructions.
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.
4.
Turn shutoff valve ON.
5.
Check for leaks. Tighten
any connections
(including
connections
at the valve) or nuts that leak.
Read all directions
before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
If
you turn the refrigerator
on before the water line is
connected,
turn the ice maker OFR
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 11/4
'' (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.
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 compression
nut
onto outlet end with adjustable
wrench.
Do not overtighten.

The ice maker is equipped
with a built-in water strainer. If your
water conditions
require a second
water strainer, install it in
the 1/4"(6.35 mm) water line at either tube connection.
Obtain
a water strainer from your nearest appliance
dealer.
